Listen to our Pet Show podcast! Our guest was Joe Lucas, president of the Thoroughbred Racing Association of Oklahoma. Joe talked with us about the tragic death of Eight Belles at the Kentucky Derby last weekend. Joe gave a lot of good insight into the world of racing and answered our questions about horse safety and treatment.
