I once asked a prominent industry figure what he liked most about his job in racing and his answer was, "The food." And while that sounds funny at first, it's also kind of true. Traveling for racing means a chance to try out the new hot place in a racing town, or to revis- it old favorites. In the April TDN Weekend, we spend a little more time than usual on food, and for good rea- son. Steve Sherack visits Don Peppe, the classic Italian restaurant just outside Aqueduct's gates, where pasta is ordered by the pound, credit cards aren't accepted, and where the baked clams just might change your life. In Lexington, Kelsey Riley and co. hit up a new offering, Graze, where a South African chef and a friend from the Bluegrass are cooking up something special. Sher- ack also eats and drinks his way across Louisville—all in service of our readers, of course—to help you plan your Derby and Breeders' Cup week itineraries. Alex Cairns has turned in a very a special interview with writ- er and singer Willy Vlautin, the author of Lean on Pete, a horseracing story which has been made into a major motion picture scheduled to be released this month. Finally, it's Mark Hennig's turn to be put on the spot in this month's video edition of The Last Word.
