Sara and AJ from the Triple Clowns join The Player's  Edge - minus Terry "Hollywood" Hay and 22 to 1 Tom. Together, we talk about UFOs. The line is set to 1:1 that the US Government says they exist when the report is released on June 1st. They wonder what horse racing at Monmouth Park is going to look like with riders not allowed to use a whip in non-emergency situations. And then onto another confusing issue, Lasix, some races it's allowed and some it's not, at the same track. It makes no sense. AJ has a great solution, in our opinion.Of course, they get down to picks and make their late Pick 4 selections at Churchill Downs.
