Tom started by talking about expanding the Triple Crown season to give more time for horse racing to garner the national spotlight it gets from the Triple Crown cycle.

Tom also talked about how delaying the start of races and pushing them back a few weeks benefits the health of the horses by giving them more time to rest. Tom believes tradition can not be used as an impediment to safe racing.
