For all of us who spend our days at the racetrack, we all have a group of people who frequent the track with us. The guy who has his head buried in the racing form and has all the angles, the guy who always bets the long shot, even the guy who's there to just drink all the adult beverages!

All these friends come together and reflect on all the great stories that are created at the track. The big wins and the crushing defeats bring together bonds that can not be broken, this holds true even with colleagues.

Earlier this week, Former MLB All-star Paul Lo Duca announced that he would be leaving TVG for another opportunity closer to his home on Long Island. His former colleague Todd Schrupp joined Brian Mariano on the Paddock Pass Podcast to discuss their 8-years together at TVG and where we could be seeing Lo Duca again... and it might be closer to the 518 than you think!

Also Schrupp dives into the great racing action at Belmont Park this weekend  for the Stars and Stripes racing festival and how can Santa Anita fix the issue that is lack of entires. Check out the full interview below!
