"Because of A throat issue you leading up to to that race and other things but you know that's why you think about a guy like Richard Mandella You know name the last time you saw a horse his taken off the race track You know in a horse. Ambulance doesn't have 'cause he's he's terrific and he's a great horseman and then you know like once again did the right thing here. Well it and I I was. I was anxious to ask you one question question Jane you kind of you kind of introduced the foreshadowed. A little bit This topic there was was all this teeth. GNASHING and hand wringing about him leaving the stage after this race and going to Stud and Oh my God. I didn't what would what did you think about what we're going to have missed and it. This conclusion leaves you with kind of you. Oh you know what the horse that that had plenty of interruptions and you know I I think people are. Ah You know trying to anoint. Something that may or may not have been there. I mean he is what he is and his career is what it is. Yeah I mean you you just never know what you want because it just seemed like he was getting better as time went on his. Malibu was obviously a terrific race. We saw that he had great promised back in the spring the last year he was the favorite for the Kentucky. Derby and you see the Kinda foresee is in terms of trains and pedigree and you you could envision him getting potentially better this year. But you know you don't know and you know you you just you. You don't know what what would have transpired So that's you just have to deal with the reality of the situation. And unfortunately his career is going to his ended and it lasted ten races with three three grade. One wins and now we'll go off studies mentioning a couple of seconds ago that I had gone to the track this morning to visit with Mandela in Omaha beaches still there.
