"These new headset. We we laid the old headset arrest last week Friday. That was my. That was my my headset literally. I bet you over ten years so I'm getting used to the new headset and it squeezes my head and in fact the the the cans the to the to earpieces pieces. They they sit together so I I don't really hear when it's sitting off to the side. I don't hear the I can't hear the chatter as much a- as as with the other set which was loose and you know after after ten plus years of being dragged around it gets to a point. So I'm I'm I'm Justin adjusting to the I. I don't I shouldn't really call it the first trip for the year but I for some reason after Breeders Cup you get the sense that you know that it's the next year even though we've got you know a few more weeks. Yeah even the opening at Santa Anita feels like next year. I mean the December twenty sixth and plenty of voices angling toward the Malibu and La Brea Etcetera But head out tomorrow. Ro and really getting excited about what is shaping up as a fabulous pair of great ones. Well well I take that back right. The fraternity got clicked down to a great too. But the and the and the starlet are are are going to be really good and I've been sort of pointing tort a thousand words Honore P. Those are the two we've mentioned. But Steve Anderson and J proven with a little blurb in the form forgot. That Blaine right was gonna ago. Yeah we. We talked to blame a couple of weeks ago at three weeks ago after Breeders Cup and door is participating and so it was wrecking crew. So you got Breeders Cup top finishers. You've got the emergent baffert player thousand words. You Got Eight Rings Baffert to pressing forward with eight rings and on our AP even if nobody else shows up those fiver that's a heavy group and on the Phillies side. The Donald J but baffert bringing back vast. So you got the second. The third place finishers from both juvenile races and and Baffert also is going to go with Gingham in there at starlet. He she'd been there have been speculation and Liuqiu via also So there's there's four nice names for the starlet without the rest of it even filling out so it should be fun and and I've come to really enjoy the low sal December run. It is going to be a little odd. Because it's coming in advance of the trip to the University of Arizona which will be on the backside Monday Tuesday Wednesday today next week so whether it's the last trip of the year or the first trip of next year I I dunno stagger staggered however wherever you like it There's also a couple of things that we can look forward to I'm the shifting sands shifting scheduling and the opening fenway at Surf Way. Park and boy. Oh Boy Taking root immediately the you soon to be born again turf way and if you haven't looked at the cards just to get going. They're they're very nice and big bulky fo- feels and nothing like kicking the maiden Special weight purses up to forty six thousand dollars and immediately seeing dividends so it top to bottom also see. I didn't and I know. It's a transitional time of year where some horses may ultimately get down toward fairgrounds and Tampa and Gulfstream ultimately oaklawn in January. We'll talk plenty on Friday to hammer. Of course we're going to see the hammer days later at Arizona but the Oakland season season already already wall known how many prominent names are going ahead to two oaklawn with strings. I didn't even bring it up. Yesterday was shook because we discussed it. We discussed it the last time. She was on in in October or late. September when he talked about going down there and of course a lot a lot of ways. It's a it's kind of a homecoming for sugar. And you train for John Anthony early on. And he bob. He'll be a force. The big you know the official against Steve Anderson talking to Gerry. How Indoor for who is going to bring a full string couple dozen horses to Oakland and basically make the winter focus? It's going to be very interesting that there's going to be is going to be a lot in new names and as competitive as the oaklawn seasons have been they're going to be I mean super competitive It just they fold in the kinds of horses that Powell gophers going to bring and mark. Glatt is going with some John Sadler. Peter Miller filled Phil D'Amato bought. This unbelievable should be just incredible In January so we got another good seven weeks before Oakland but in the meantime I think you're going and a half to. I think you're going to have to look at at turf. Way starts with a maiden special today a mile and a quarter is the is the opener opener they got eight for that but then nine winners to lifetime claimer twelve horses to as another other claimer going a mile twelve horses to as a fifteen thousand nine hundred eighty two lifetime going short fillies and Mares twelve horses sources to a maiden special a mile for boys twelve with two as I some believable table claiming allowance the sixth race twelve horses to eight and the same twelve to eight years in the allowance seventh and in the Maidan Nickel maiden going short her close out unbelievable eight by eight in the first and then the next seven races twelve each that the you know you. You can't beat you can't beat fulfilled same thing more or less on day two as well. You don't know if this kind of population relation is going to you know hold throughout the winter but it it sure feels like it's going to based on some of the quotes. We should get all the chip Bok doc and you know how excited the that morning after the news game that that Churchill was was buying turf way and and was going to rebuild. It's it's GonNa be hard not to try to make make a turf way. At least I I think you have to at least look at these fields.

Just because of this synthetic you know the synthetic courses from the summer and fall Arlington and presque. And you get you know you get quite a few so yeah the the circuit at in Woodbine The circuit of of synthetic option main track track horses and boy just looking just looking at the at the horsemen. You know that that are entered here the first couple of days I mean that's got to be really encouraging then colebrook Romans Charlie Presi Jason Barkley the Mike Maker Joe Sharp David Fox David Fox but that fifty two thousand dollars allowance. That says what you know the sense of all. You need to know Vicki. Oliver Jackson Assen. Jim Chapman Gary Sims. Brian Lynch mcpeek. It's going to be John. Ortiz is going to be very competitive.

I'm impressed and We'll look we'll we'll be looking at had 'cause I typically will pull up all the all of the maiden specials and even even at the Beatrix 'cause you don't you he's gotTa keep this. All of this really started with us when when L. S. three or four or five summers ago the looking at at the Maidan is is the two year olds.
