Spires happy to be with you here on this Friday March the twenty seventh Florida Derby Eve as we get set for a big weekend down at Gulfstream Park. And we're going to talk a lot about that card because there's a lot to talk about in all of the excitement of the Florida Derby the return of decorated invaders. Part of the UNDERCARD. And we'll talk. I'm going to go through is much of the UNDERCARD as I can. In the second half of the show. There's I mean I can literally go for two hours talking about the car. Not just you know handicapping and maybe horses. I like but storylines and I think that one of the things we're seeing. Obviously it's a big day and there's big money and all that kind of stuff but I think a lot of people are are just with. The uncertainty of of how long racing is going to continue in certain spots. I think a lot of horsemen are GONNA try to run and get that last crack purse money at Gulfstream or oaklawn or Tampa or or wherever. I know that Javier Castellano. It was announced on Thursday. Had he was positive with Cova nineteen he is agent released a tweet basically saying he had not written a Gulfstream since the fifteenth and he went to Oakland and then was out for a while or something it was kind of weird his agent released a tweet and then deleted it and then released another one like an hour later. That kind of like. Hey we we went through Gulfstream's extreme protocols and I was almost kinda like what? Gulfstream told my. Hey Bunny make the sound like we were a little tougher and then and then it came out but regardless of how it was you know what happened or how it was done first of all obviously hoping best for heavy air and for his family for anybody. That's been around him and as I said it's it's not a question of you know when but when somebody at an inside of these tracks is going to. It's especially obviously new. York has been a very big hotbed for all this and the tracks around. There wasn't surprising that they had close up of a lot of the race tracks. Help live in very close quarters and I just can't imagine it not getting to most everywhere not necessarily everywhere but most everywhere and you know. It's just a scary times As I mentioned yesterday we're starting to build some. I don't WanNa say best of but just some lists in blog. Post Fuego twin spires dot com slash blog. You can always find my show on there and you can find some of the other great content. That's done at twin spires whether it's Ed's show or handicapping columns or what have you. But we're kind of putting lumping together some of our interviews over the years not just for this show but for the barn show in category so we release the horse players one yesterday. The trainers one should be out soon. I can do with jockeys in announcers and everything else. And so you'll be able to find that twin spires dot com slash blog. I tweeted it out on my own twitter at beamy awards but lots of your favorite interviews and just I know everybody's got a little extra time these days not everybody but a lot of people and so we thought it would be nice to put together some uneasy spot for folks to gather up just some of the favorite interviews if they want to go back and listen to though so check those out if you were interested in appreciate everybody support us as we continue onto broadcast during this pandemic. It's not an epidemic right a pandemic but scary times in the. I DON'T WANNA KEEP. It's hard not to talk about it because it's the foremost thing. I involved in everything and I don't. I realized that a lot of people. WanNa listen to the show. They want to be escape from this and I can promise you that most of the next fifty minutes that you hear will be because we got the jury guys. We're going to get their takes on the Florida Derby. I'm going to go over the UNDERCARD afterwards. But it's just that this whole thing is touching and affecting everybody's life including racing and every little bit of racing we get is dependent upon you. Know kind of dodging this and so. It's this weird thing where it's like this unique opportunity to to you know to keep the sport going engine going and then also like. I wonder if you know in five months or people going to be stupid horse racing. Why did they keep running during this? So we'll only know we get to play out and you know. Hopefully everybody regardless of what they're doing is being as safe as possible. But it's just Thomas overwhelming. How how big this has gotten and somebody who kind of from the early going knew. It was going to be a big scary. But we're kind of getting getting into it right now and hopefully all of the measures were taking are going to lead to some relief sooner than later but I think that the the next week or two is going to be pretty Pretty Rough on a lot of folks. But let's let's turn a frowns upside down now. We're going to take just a fact I'm not gonNA take a commercial break. There's my Friday presidency. I'm just GonNa roll some intro Mircea music and then we'll go right into the jury and then I got a lot to talk about about this Saturday cartoon. It really is a fantastic car. I'm very much looking forward to spending the day on my couch which I've only done for the last three weeks and in watching the card so short little little pause in the audio here and we'll be right back with the jury and then we'll look over this big card. It's the J. Speed horse racing. Podcast brought to you by twin spires. This is the Jason Beam horse racing. Podcast brought to you by twin spires. All right back here on the voice racing podcast brought to you by twin spires as we always liked to do on. Fridays. We welcome in our buddies from the jury. We head over to living room. And welcome et. Derosa. Ed How are you doing just getting back? I had a the reasons they living room. Is Everybody's worked from home? So you got family milling about so. I didn't want anybody. Here's a random plank or a screen. We know it's just a child in the background right. I had to call Zappa. Are you familiar with Apple's? Oh yeah so. Yeah and they close to order two new genes and the and the pairs was significantly too. Big which is good for the old ego a little bit but but I had to. Do IT Exchange Cy. Call them and on their phone line. They go just so you know daughter to abide by the you know. The governor's orders all of our customer service people working from home so if you hear a friendly puppy in the background that's why that was pretty good so sure enough. The Guy I call it literally sounded like he's having a keg or in the background here like twelve people the background. I'm a Social Carl. There's a racing crossover whatsapp os before Amazon bottom. The CEO of Zappa's delivered the keynote. At a I was out there. You Go there Vegas Company. I believe Vegas Louisville. Oh who knew? He was just looking for a certain kind of coat. And then next thing they had a bunch of good prices in the big tall section next thing I know I got a whole box and then the economy crashed. Yeah yeah they were. They're big claim to fame when Amazon. Goddamn was basically overnight at everything. Well the when you potted the weird thing is like with Amazon. Like people forget sometimes like they were just a bookstore. Like that's all that's all. They sold was books now. They sell everything. It's just bunker now I mean really I think Walmart there's other stores like them now but I mean they were a five and dime in Bentonville. What is five and dime mean one hundred times do member Woolworth? Has that sound familiar Basically like My grandma called it. The dime store but So I don't WanNa say it was like totally like a dollar store but basically like you know that that you know cheap off brand stuff like a big lattes or something but they also had a lunch counter which apparently was popular with the Kids at the Soda Fountain. Jake's loved it so phone man car with the milkshake. There's a like at a bar and you get a bartender soda. You get a soda jerk. Is that true? It's he's called the Soda Jerk. Wow and I don't know if it's because he jerks like the lever down for the soda or what but Yeah. He's called the Soda Jerk. Well you know what a group called. No I'm murder. Oh No way. Yeah interesting boy. This this is great Everything's cancelled the entertainment. This fits the bill. No kidding. Well we should talk horse racing. You you've kind of become Mr will rogers and fodder and the early parts of the week. I know you have a great passionate enjoyment for kind of smaller tracks so I gotta think that betting one hundred thousand dollar pick four will rogers is rather able. It's good to get some love. I would say it's actually been interesting This week and really I think showcases the the power that may be too strong a word of trying to have any sort of presence and social media which will rogers does not Because even though they out handled fonder which I think just based on what I've seen in twin spires business in the pools in general is more the CR. W guys are playing will rogers and finer. But I mean. There's no question in my mind that people are more excited about this week especially Wednesday with Gulfstream running video. Video is better although we we did get we did get an all time race call. Yesterday I never will Trashy Guy I understand. It was a rough one it was. It was a tough one. I'M NOT GONNA I won't sugarcoat it. Yeah but especially tough when you have the horse on the other end Over but which which I did and I wasn't involved in the Great Chris Ca- to lack or their GM their head guy. He's on twitter and cheerleading people. Playing so it's been fun good to see people rallying around a track and you know even historically Jason Nebraska to me. I mean it's just criminal would happen to axe Arben If only they could stuck around like Oakland. Did I think them in? Oakland would have very similar meets for basically half the year if they had been able to stick around. I mean it was a track. People play Warren Buffett Liked it you know I mean it was? It was Almas playground. Then the dogs came to Iowa and the crowds went with it..
