Interview: Aaron “Longshot” Katersky Talks California Chrome


History is on the line today at Belmont as California Chrome tries to become the first horse since 1978 to win the elusive Triple Crown. Now for those who don’t know, I am also part of Sports Talk Florida’s sister company, News Talk Florida, in which I co-host a morning news talk radio show, Your Wake Up Call.

This week, we had ABC News’ Aaron “Longshot” Katersky on our program to talk about California Chrome’s chances of winning.

We talked about the horse’s unlikely rise to racing prominence with blue-collar ownership and a difficult birth, if the nasal strip does provide a competitive advantage and the fact that a number of his top competitors too the Preakness off, meaning they’re on fresher legs.

You can listen to Your Wake Up Call on AM 820 News (Tampa Bay) and AM 1190 News (Orlando). The show airs Monday through Friday from 6-10 a.m.
