Bobby Frankel, Greg Sacco, Delaware discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast
Now fifteen back. It's a pretty tough maiden race in July at Delaware. Yeah. Very much so talking with trainer. Greg Sacco on trainer talk. Presented by phase. It Tipton on the horse racing radio network, gray, we talk about all of the different things that you have to do as a trainer to get a horse to the races. And, and then when you get them there, everything else to go, right? What qualities are what things make for a good horse trainer. While I think get, you know, you have to have patience and, you know, when you went to back off your horses, and you have to train, your worse is individually as opposed to just the same routine, a lot of is basic if ever good feed-in program, you have to know your worse. It's you know, you have to, you know, there's times when you don't have something scheduled, and I'll back off of it. This what and maybe look a little light to me that day or you know, worse is, of course, you have to have a good staff working for you. You know, without a good staff were combined. You train a I don't think he'd get the first base if people that you'd be out on. And, and of course, then you have to have, you know, you place your wishes in, in the right the manage your heart becomes a big play. You know, you have to play show this correctly and, and for them to be competitive. I mean, that, that, that's you know, that's a big part of our, you know of our game to who's the greatest trainer. You've been around. You know, I think the best trainer that the guy that I admire the most, you know, from as probably Bobby Frankel. He is his horses. You know, they got better with age. And, you know he started out, I was a kid. I remember him claiming horses. And he's altered you know, successful claiming voices telling him at the state courses. So it's not like he was just, you know, got all those, you know, group went horses from Europe. You know, he earned that he was claiming training to be a great state course trainer. And then, you know his horses got better with a state in really. He nosedives. So I had a lot of respect for be, frankly, I think, was tremendous trainer, and I think it was part horse. He he was terrific for, for a kid that was, you know, born pretty much in the streets in New York. He had this uncanny natural horsemanship. I think it just animals in general. I mean if you saw the way he treated his dogs, and I mean you just. Animal person, you know. And, you know, I saw him when horses would get hurt you know, be be laying in the straw, next to the mix of the horse and in a talking to him. And I mean just just a very natural horsemen in his horses had careers as post meets. I mean it seems to me nowadays, a lot lot of trainers just you know, gear them up for this meter that meat or whatever. And then they disappear off the face of the earth, but, but Bobby sources were the same year in your out his his van lady, the vita Randall used to tell me, you know, I don't I don't need bobby's stall application. It's the same horses to go from track to track too. And you know, I think he always had them. I you might have had to places in LA. I don't know you know, more than that, you know, they were basically under one umbrella. Yeah. Pretty much. I mean, he, he stabled at Sandia meals always had a story at Hollywood park. So you know is between the two but he was almost always at the track where they race. He wasn't one of those guys that, you know, say, oh, I'm saying needs today when he was really at Hollywood. And, you know, back and forth, they go and, and they're neither joint. But I mean he was he was into his horses. And, and really, you know, knew everything about each one, for, for a guy that he didn't have that many. He wasn't in the three hundred class you know, probably eighty to a hundred. We had to be the right. Yeah..
