It's “Industry Week” in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., a time when the U.S. horse racing business convenes for idea forums and other discussions. Given what's happened this year in the sport of Thoroughbred racing, these events could carry more weight than usual.
In this week's edition of The Friday Show, Scott Jagow and Ray Paulick discuss a pair of topics worth noting. One was generated by Ray this week in an editorial: Would the horse racing industry benefit from an independent study of its ethical practices and drug use, similar to the Mitchell Report in baseball?
Plus, should U.S. racing revise its rules on how interference is officiated in races? A recent race at Saratoga provides fodder for the issue.
Watch The Friday Show below and share your thoughts.
