We talk to the Sage of Saratoga, leading horse handicapper Andy Serling.
He tells us how horse racing has grown during the pandemic, what makes the sport so special and how legal sports betting is inevitable in America.
The New York Racing Association handicapper talks about falling in love with his home track of Saratoga, how race tracks without crowds are "sad" and how a horse's name impacts its odds.
Andy describes how much research he does on each race, why he backs his picks with money and his hopes for big crowds after Coronavirus.
And why he wants to share a Blanton's bourbon  with Philip Roth at Saratoga.
