For more than 100 years the first Saturday of May has been reserved for this historical and fast-paced event. Although the Dynamic Pet Duo will be at the Derby on Saturday, the two will also be reporting on the day before - Oaks Day. While the Derby is reserved for three-year-old Thoroughbreds, the Kentucky Oaks features three-year old Thoroughbred fillies. Both races are the most highly attended and most popular in American horse-racing society. They are also the two oldest and continuously contested sporting events in American history. Amazingly, the Derby and the Oaks still call their original site home. For more information, visit KentuckyDerby.com.
Dr. Fleck and Ms. Reed will begin their live, up-to-the minute coverage of the Kentucky Derby and Oaks with a national radio tour. Tune in to hear the pet power couple provide listeners the inside track on the contenders, handicapping, betting, fashions and celebrities. With 147 acres of action, Dr. Fleck and Ms. Reed will be full of interesting, intriguing and insightful details and information throughout their broadcasts. In short, the pet power couple’s intimate, behind the scenes and in-the-action coverage of the 140th Annual Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks is not to be missed!
