The jockeys of Affirmed and Alydar say it's time for another Triple Crown

Kelly Kultys and Sean Hahner discuss the greatest rivarly in horse racing history with the jockey of Affirmed, Steven Cauthen and the jockey of Alydar, Jorge Velasquez.

They first relive the fierce rivalry between one another's horses from the Kentucky Derby to the Belmont Stakes, the difference between the two horses and the jockeys themselves. 

They also breifly discuss the potential Triple Crown race before the Belmont went off and give their prediction on who they think will win, and if Califronia Chome will join Affirmed as a Triple Crown winning horse.
