Rachel, Vince, Rudy discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast


Very <Speech_Music_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Telephony_Male> <Silence> <Speech_Male> similar <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Telephony_Male> to the rail <Silence> to rich <Silence> strike. <Speech_Male> And the <Speech_Telephony_Male> horse was not given <Speech_Telephony_Male> a whole lot of shot. <Speech_Male> I don't think in the pregnancy <Speech_Telephony_Male> because Rachel <Silence> Alexander <Speech_Male> was in that race. <Speech_Male> But when you <Silence> go back and watch the <Speech_Male> replay, <Speech_Telephony_Male> then more yards <Speech_Male> in <Speech_Male> that race and <Speech_Telephony_Male> mine that bird <Silence> wins that race <Speech_Male> against <Speech_Male> the great <Speech_Music_Male> Rachel <Silence> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Telephony_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Silence> <Speech_Male> mine <Silence> that bird runs <Speech_Male> third. <Speech_Telephony_Male> So that horse <Speech_Male> ran first, <Silence> second <SpeakerChange> and third, <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Music_Male> <Silence> a lot of people thought <Speech_Male> it was just <Speech_Telephony_Male> a fluke <Speech_Male> in the Derby, <Speech_Telephony_Male> but mine that bird <Silence> proved that <Speech_Male> that wasn't so. <Speech_Telephony_Male> <SpeakerChange> And <Silence> <Speech_Male> to me, <Speech_Male> it's <Speech_Male> all gravy. You <Speech_Male> won the complexity <Speech_Male> Derby. <Speech_Music_Male> You know, <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> if the horse <Speech_Male> wins the Belmont, <Silence> which I don't think <Speech_Music_Male> he will, <Speech_Music_Male> but if the <Silence> horse wins the Belmont, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> they're going to have to live with <Speech_Male> themselves the rest <Speech_Telephony_Male> of their lives that <Speech_Male> they had a chance <Speech_Male> at the Triple Crown <Speech_Male> and never <Speech_Male> gave the horse <Silence> a chance to <Speech_Music_Male> do it. So <Speech_Male> I just, <Speech_Male> I just totally <Speech_Male> 100% <Silence> disagree <SpeakerChange> with their <Speech_Male> decision. <Speech_Male> Yes. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> especially <Speech_Male> if <Speech_Male> what <Speech_Male> we're reading is <Speech_Male> correct in that he's <Speech_Male> perfectly healthy <Speech_Male> and happy <Speech_Male> and it's just <Silence> simply a <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> they don't like the <Speech_Male> timing of it. <Speech_Male> You know, <Speech_Male> it's different with <Speech_Male> what Vince <Speech_Male> said. Country <Speech_Male> house never ran <Speech_Male> again after he <Speech_Male> was placed first in the Derby. <Speech_Male> Grindstone <Speech_Male> never ran again <Speech_Male> after he won the Derby <Speech_Male> in 96, <Speech_Male> spend a <Speech_Male> buck had a $2 million <Speech_Male> bonus hanging <Speech_Male> over him if he <Speech_Male> wins the Derby <Speech_Male> and then goes on and wins <Speech_Male> the Jersey Derby. <Speech_Male> So in $2 million, <Speech_Male> you know, it's not <Speech_Male> like those races were <Speech_Male> growing on trees <Speech_Male> back then, $2 million <Speech_Male> was gigantic. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> they all <Speech_Male> had reasons <Speech_Male> to not run. <Speech_Male> I can't remember and <Speech_Male> I'm sure somebody out there <Speech_Male> knows the last <Speech_Male> time <Speech_Male> a fit <Speech_Male> happy and healthy <Speech_Male> horse <Speech_Male> who won the Derby, <Speech_Male> the connections just <Speech_Male> said <Speech_Male> for no other reason <Speech_Male> than we just <Speech_Male> want to give them more time. We <Speech_Male> don't want to run the Preakness. <Speech_Male> It's <Speech_Male> very odd. <Speech_Male> And it doesn't sit <Speech_Male> very well. <Speech_Male> With me and it <Speech_Male> sounds like it doesn't sit <Speech_Male> very well with you. But <Silence> I will say this. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> For us not liking <Speech_Male> it, I hope <Speech_Male> that what <Speech_Male> they're doing <Speech_Male> does turn out to <Speech_Male> be the best decision <Speech_Male> for rich <Speech_Male> strike. Whether or not <Speech_Male> he wins the Belmont <Speech_Male> or not. And <Speech_Male> believe me, I hope <Speech_Male> he doesn't win the Belmont <Speech_Male> because I don't <Silence> want to have to deal with <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> what <Speech_Male> happens if rich strike <Speech_Male> would have run in the Preakness <Speech_Music_Male> and I don't <Speech_Music_Male> want those questions just <Speech_Music_Male> like you were saying <Speech_Music_Male> there, Mike <Speech_Music_Male> and I appreciate your <Speech_Music_Male> call. <Speech_Music_Male> I don't want that <Speech_Music_Male> narrative out there. <Speech_Music_Male> You <Speech_Male> know, what would have <Speech_Male> happened if he had to run in the <Speech_Male> pretense? He missed his shot <Speech_Music_Male> at the Triple Crown. <Speech_Music_Male> You know, <Speech_Male> I'm not supposed to say <Speech_Male> I'm openly <Speech_Male> Rudy against a horse, <Speech_Male> but I don't want that <Speech_Music_Male> narrative. <Speech_Music_Male> All right, it's been <Speech_Music_Male> another great hour <Speech_Music_Male> here on the brisnet dot <Speech_Music_Male> com call and show. We <Speech_Music_Male> really appreciate <Speech_Music_Male> all of your calls. <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> I want to remind you another <Speech_Male> full day tomorrow <Speech_Music_Male> here on the network, <Speech_Music_Male> Dave and I <Speech_Music_Male> back for race <Speech_Music_Male> day from four to 6, <Speech_Male> including live <Speech_Music_Male> stakes action from <Speech_Music_Male> pimlico <Speech_Music_Male> and stick around for the weekend <Speech_Music_Male> stakes preview presented <Speech_Music_Male> by naira betts 6 <Speech_Music_Male> to 7 p.m. <Speech_Music_Male> for our producer <Speech_Music_Male> Lee jalapeno my co <Speech_Music_Male> host James Scully I'm <Speech_Music_Male> Bobby Newman, <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> have a great night everyone.
