Jockey Victor Espinoza Chats with Emery Songer and John Hernandez

With the Belmont Stakes coming up this week and Justify going for the Triple Crown, we had a chance to talk with Hall of Fame jockey Victor Espinoza to get his thoughts on the race and his career.

Victor was the jockey aboard American Pharoah in 2015 when he became the 12th horse to win the Triple Crown and the first since 1978.

It was fun to pick his brain about his career and what he expects to happen in the Belmont Stakes this year with him not riding a horse this time around.

I am joined once again by Prairie Meadows Handicapper John Hernandez, who set up the interview.
