Hosted by HRTV's Aaron Vercruysse and Jeff Siegel, and joined by Zoe Cadman, Westrock Coffee First Call will be at Oaklawn for the second consecutive year to chronicle the track's biggest weekend.  The fast-paced 60-minute show, which airs at 11 a.m. ET, provides racing fans with pertinent interviews, commentary, news, race replays and morning workouts.  Friday's show from Oaklawn will be a special edition of Westrock Coffee First Call.

In addition to the presence of First Call, HRTV's Becky Witzman will also be on the scene both days to supply up-to-date reports and interviews throughout Oaklawn's two biggest days.  HRTV will present live coverage of the Apple Blossom and Arkansas Derby, as well as the full card each day.
