It’s the latest edition of JG Sports Talk with your host Amiri Tulloch!
On today’s show, it’s all triple crown and horse racing as Amiri discusses American Pharoah’s historic weekend. First, Amiri looks at how the triple crown win will impact the sport’s overall interest, as well as analyzes the sport’s inherent problems. Plus, Amiri compares horse racing to the FIFA World Cup as two sports that have struggled to maintain consistent fanbases.
Next, Amiri is joined by Tom Law of ThisIsHorseRacing.com (skip to 7:44 for the interview). Tom is a writer and editor, as well as a horse racing lifer. Tom helps explain his feelings about the triple crown, what it means historically, and also what it means for the sport as a whole. Also be sure to read Tom’s recap piece, “Well-earned Crown.”
