Title Jim Bolus interview with Jack Price
Description Side A

Horse owner/trainer Jack Price is talking to Bolus over the phone. He is explaining some recent subpoenas issued by the racing commission. The audio becomes extremely difficult to hear. The two seem to be discussing the Florida horse industry, and possible environmental reasons for its popularity among breeders, owners, and trainers. (Price and his wife owned a farm in Ocala, Florida.) Price does not believe Florida will ever overtake Kentucky's established horse industry, however. They also discuss Florida racing, at tracks such as Hialeah Park.

Side B

Bolus is speaking with Jack Price over the phone. Price confirms the once common practice of giving performance enhancing drugs to racehorses, including heroin, cocaine, and concentrated caffeine.

13:35 -- Unknown speaker, an owner or trainer, discussing plans to run his horse in an upcoming race. Side B audio ends after this segment.
