War of Will (War Front) hits the line first ahead of Everfast in the 144th Preakness Stakes

The second leg of what has turned out to be one notable Triple Crown series is in the books. Meanwhile, the drama continues off the track for the horse racing industry with lawsuits, betting challenges, legislative hearings and media scrutiny.

In this edition of The Friday Show, Scott Jagow and Ray Paulick discuss War of Will's Preakness Stakes victory and what it means in the context of the Kentucky Derby disqualification and potentially the lawsuit filed by Maximum Security's owner Gary West. Plus, what to make of West's “challenge” to owners of the horses impacted by his colt's DQ on the first Saturday in May?

Also, thoughts on a hearing by state lawmakers in California this week, the HBO Real Sports piece on fatalities in the horse racing industry and the public's response to two eventful Triple Crown races.
