The Kentucky Derby will become the rare event that has run annually for 150 years with Saturday’s race. Churchill Downs underwent a $200 million renovation prior to the event, which leans into its history as much as anything in sports. FanDuel TV anchor Todd Schrupp joins the show to discuss the significance of this race, recent issues in horse safety, and the controversial figure of Bob Baffert.

Plus, an NFL team owner turned down a $10 billion offer and Fox plans to seek record prices for ad space during the Super Bowl LIX broadcast.
