The Friday Show Presented By Diamond B Farm’s Rowayton: Sam Houston Strong

Chris Griffin, track announcer at Sam Houston Race Park, joins Ray Paulick and Joe Nevills on this week’s edition of The Friday Show in the wake of the historic deep freeze that wreaked havoc with the electrical grid and water supply in Houston and other Texas cities.

“It was a unique situation, a bit scary at times, but we got through it,” Griffin said. “Your immediate thought if you’re involved with horse racing – and it should be – is how are the horses going to be handling the conditions and what we are going to go through.”

Fortunately, an emergency plan was in place, and the backstretch community rallied to make it work. “Last week was a very trying, difficult time where we all had to work together,” he said.

After four lost racing days, the action resumed this week, just in time for Saturday evening’s Texas Preview Day, and Griffin provides some insights on the 12-race card featuring five stakes for Texas-breds.

Finally, bloodstock editor Joe Nevills gives a toast to Spendthrift Farm‘s Vino Rosso in our new segment spotlighting the stallion’s first foals.
