African-Americans have a deep and rich history in American and International horse racing. From the beginning, black jockeys dominated the sport of kings until Jim Crow laws and racism ran them out of the country. For the past 100 years black people have struggled to find a seat at the American table of opportunity, and horse racing is one of the greatest offenders. In this episode, Ken sits with 3 Black men who have dedicated their lives to this game, from the outside looking in. They talk about the lack of access and opportunity for people who look like them in a sport that they dearly love and support. They also discuss their favorite horses of all time and some of the best black jockeys riding right now in the U.S.

Plus, Laon Gordon Camps drops off a few sure shot picks in “Longshot Lounge”.
