Going in Circles Podcast

Going in Circles Podcast beginnings

I started doing the Going in Circles podcast because first and foremost I love horse racing. It has been a big part of my life since I was a kid growing up a few miles away from Saratoga Racecourse. Racing has for the most part been the only real job that I ever had though I have worn a lot of different hats during my career. I have been a hotwalker, a groom, a barn foreman, an assistant trainer as well as training my own string of horses for 20 years. I have bred horses, purchased and sold stakes winners at auction, including grade 1 winners, both here in the US and abroad. There is also frontside experience on my resume as I have charted races (both thoroughbred and Standardbreds), punched tickets as a mutual clerk and used my University of Arizona racetrack management degree for a few years as an assistant racing secretary. So I have seen the sport from many different angles which gives me a unique perspective on many of the issues that face racing. Writing limits your ability to express a lot of the subtleties on various topics as if you arenโ€™t a talented wordsmith, a long soliloquy can get rather tiresome. Podcasts allow me to say what I want to say without being encumbered by space limitations, easily incorporates views of others as guests and once a week on our Tuesday LIVE format gives us the chance to directly interact and hear input from followers of the game.

Going in Circles Big Monday w/Barry Spears presented by Pleasant Acres Stallions Going In Circles

On tonightโ€™s Big Monday show Barry and I discuss the Thanksgiving weekend action including the upset in the Clark, as the famed Derby winner Rich Strike was defeated (as usual), the possibly Derby Trail aspirations for Golden Rod winner Hoosier Philly, Instant Coffee overcoming a soft pace when winning the KY Jockey Club plus handicap racing and the mistake racing made when it eliminated so many of them. Plus Turf at GP, no turf at FG, hoping for spring turf at CD, the potential weak fields for the Cigar Mile and Remson, (which I may witness in person), is Bol Bol the greatest basketball player ever and my frustration with the New York Knickerbockers (the Time Lord section). — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/charles-simon6/message
