Gabby Gaudet, the new horse handicapper at Pimlico Race Course and Laurel Park, joined the Norris & Davis show to talk about the Preakness. Conditions are expected to be dry and fast at the Preakness and the probable favorite is Derby winner Orb.
Steve started off by asking being the face of Pimlico and Laurel. Gabby said it has been a whirlwind and that she found out about the job in March. She said she is looking forward to it.
Bob wanted to know if there is going to be revival of interest in horse racing from the young generation. Gabby said she hopes so and that there are a lot of young people at the track. She believes it is definitely on the incline.
Steve asked about Orb’s chances. Gabby said she loves Orb and that she has been on the bandwagon for a long time because she saw him run a time ago.
Bob asked how closely should we watch Governor Charlie. She said that there are a handful of horses that she likes at the derby and Governor Charlie is one of those. However, her favorite is Orb and she really likes Mylute.
