Listen: Dori Monson's race call at Emerald Downs

On Friday night, KIRO Radio's Dori Monson, a veteran broadcaster with experience in football, baseball and basketball play-by-play tried his hand at horse racing.

Emerald Downs announcer Robert Geller got Dori all set up and tried to show him the ropes, but Dori says he ran into a few difficulties.

"Here's my problem. I'm not good at memorizing all the horse's names, colors and numbers. So I have to look through the binoculars at the race and then back to the program," says Monson. "That was really awkward for me."

Take a listen to Dori's call:
