It is one of the handful of times a huge crowd shows up to a racetrack for the racing, and not because there are newly installed dime slots in the building next door. It is the annual Kentucky Derby, where the best 3-year-old horses in the country run for the roses. This year there are two big morning line favorites, American Pharoah, and Dortmund, both from out West and trained by Bobby Baffert. But favorites rarely win the Derby, and TVG Network host and racing analyst Scott Hazelton, who grew up in racing (his father a world class trainer), happens to favor Carpe Diem, groomed by the top trainer in the country, Todd Pletcher. Scott will tell you why, as well as some other possibilities, Friday morning from Churchill Downs.

The police investigation into the in-custody death of Freddie Gray has been wrapped up and turned over to the Maryland State Attorney a day ahead of schedule. Investigators delivered their report early because “I understand the frustration. I understand the urgency,” Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said. The report reveals for the first time that the police van transporting Gray made a stop that was previously unreported. The report, said Commissioner Batts, is not the end of the investigation. Jim has more details.

In Podcasts

Alex is in Vegas for the fight for the ages, between the two men considered currently the two best boxers in the world, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The welterweights will face off at the MGM Grand In Las Vegas, in a match that brings back the 1980s, considered the last golden age for boxing. Mayweather, undefeated in 47 professional fights dating back to 1996, who has won world titles in 5 different weight classes. And Pacquiao, 6-time world champion, with a 59-5 lifetime professional record. Millions of dollars involved, for the fighters, the Pay-Per-View distributor, and the Las Vegas oddsmakers. And ticket costs are in the thousands. Alex sets the scene.
