More all that up over the course of very busy two hours here this morning if you go to our HR website. This is kind of a cool thing a little bit separate from what we've been talking about well by the way before I get to that. Let me just mentioned this. One thing very quickly. Because I think it's very important Santa Anita. If you missed it came out yesterday and mentioned that they would have to suspend horseracing temporarily. Don't know what temporarily means. Don't know how long. I don't know if that I would assume it likely puts the Santa Anita Derby next Saturday into question and they did this on the recommendations of the Health Department and California and look. It's a no brainer. They had to do it so for now. Santa Anita has suspended. They're racing operations earlier this week jockey. Vr CASTELLANO posted a tweet and he was talking about the fact that he has indeed tested positive for the corona virus. And here's his tweet. I'm going to read it. Verbatim heavier said after being in New York with family last week I was asked by Gulfstream to come early to Florida to get tested for the virus. I was as symptomatic all along. Unfortunately the test came back last night as positive I otherwise healthy but will follow the doctor's orders to quarantine for the next two weeks. I have had no no contact with anyone that has tested positive. I appreciate the support from everyone including Gulfstream Park. Stay safe everyone and we will all get through this God willing and I texted with heavier and he did say he's doing just fine. He got back to me last night. He's feeling fine. Everything's on track.

Trained by billy budget and billy is now in a position where he is doing a lot of things with Florida racing including acting as the director of Florida racing operations for the stronach group. He was set to join us here on this program right now but had to cancel just got notification that he had to cancel is actually heading into an emergency meeting with the city manager. And I told you that. This is a very fluid situation down at Gulfstream Park again. The Florida Derby scheduled. We run this afternoon the last race on a really good fourteen race program but earlier this week it came out that Broward county officials were not necessarily in favor of Gulfstream. Staying Open and the city could handle any kind of enforcement and any kind of penalties against Gulfstream Park. As a matter of fact there is a quote in the article from Ric Barrick who was Broward County's assistant director of public communications and he said that they do not fit into the essential category listening and executive order. They should not be open. Any enforcement would be handled by the city that they are located and he's not talking about specifically Gulfstream but businesses in general with that executive order and Gulfstream is still scheduled to run today so I was hoping to talk to billy about that. Obviously with him going into a meeting now with city manager there is there. There is still ongoing conversations. Even the morning of the Florida Derby but there's look Gulfstream. Really wants to get this card today. Obviously they have the mandatory payout into the Rainbow Six. They have all of the unbelievable stakes races carded and of course that Florida Derby. But I think when you're when you're talking about a global health pandemic some of those things kind of have to take a back seat and that's not going to be a popular sentiment with a lot of our listeners. Who are in the horse business necessarily but I really do. I think you have to take a long look at that and say what are we doing here? Every other major sport has said no no. We can't do look at baseball. Baseball may not come back until July major league. Baseball may not start until July. Maybe I saw something yesterday. Kurt herbstreet from ESPN was on talking about the football season this year college football season the NFL seasons. There's no guarantee they're going to even have the season this year. Let alone start on time. Same thing with the Kentucky Derby September fifth. That's optimistic and I hope it happens. Believe me I do. I love to see us get back to normality but in the grand scheme of things. I mean it's horse racing. It's what we do we love it. It's our business it's our life it's our passion but sometimes there's bigger things to consider and I got a feeling that billy is going to be having that conversation right now with the city manager so anyways with my thanks to billy attempting to be with us here this morning. He was excited to join us. And talk about that Let let's let's talk about the positives that program today is absolutely loaded. Equality has a unbelievable program. Fourteen races. I mentioned all of the stakes. And then what is it ten stakes races and six graded stakes races? In that one point six million dollar carryovers really gonNA take things to another level. I mentioned the Barclay tag has the morning line favorite. Tis The law and maybe the favorite for the Kentucky Derby Right now sixty five morning line favorite but independence hall who is owned in part by Aaron Wellman in his eclipse thoroughbred partners was undefeated going into the Sam F Davis. He finished second. That day wasn't embarrassed. They learned an awful lot about independence hall that day an earlier this week. Aaron took time to catch up with Bobby Newman on our red brain radio. Show and here's what he had to say in that conversation about Independence Hall. We learned a lot about him. Actually a few things went wrong. That were slightly out of our control. I he lost his tongue tie in the warm ups which didn't do them any favors. But a little bit more substantively. He lost his right front shoe coming out of the gate so he basically ran that entire race in the Sam Davis on three shoes with no right front shoe so those are excuses. That don't really matter now but they are some things that obviously everything in our power to control next time but You know I think it's the ultimate what have you done for me lately? Gamely played here. And if you really sit back and Digest two Sam Davis it was a pretty darn good race chased very hot pace on the occasion. Was the only man. Left standing was anywhere close to that pace and still kicked on and he got beat on the square by horse. Who came from way out of it and had a good trip in Soho Lante who came back and ran a very race in the Tampa Bay Derby so they were clear of the third place runner and By all accounts we think it was a very very good race. Obviously when you're three three you've won those races by a combined. Twenty some lanks in your odds on the Sand Davis you WANNA take care of business and it's disappointing not to win but at the same time. We walked away from Tampa feeling as though we might lost that battle. But we're still in a position to win the War Independence Hall for those folks who use speed ratings or maybe sheets. He was faster than basically anybody at that time of year. In fact his his numbers in both the national and the drome still probably faster than any other three year. Old has run this far. So what led to the decision to skip the Tampa Bay Derby and wait for the Florida Derby instead so the partnership group which consists of twin creeks Randy Goulette. Steve Davison as well as varieties. And of course. My trump that at the helm. We all huddled up after the Sam Davis and the Tampa Bay Derby was on our radar but it was still coming back quick and it would have meant that he would have run A bunch of races in a pretty short period of time had we opted for chew other preps prior to the derby including the Tampa Bay. Derby twin creeks folks and eclipse have been down this path before going the temp route with Destin. Who won the Sam Davis and the Tampa Bay Derby and eclipse as well with Capri who won the Tampa Bay Derby and the timing of that race makes it a little difficult to determine whether you should just it out and train up to the Derby or have another prop and Both those colts ended up running. Okay in the Derby ran very well the Belmont but with independence hall. We really wanted to try to make the right move for the Kentucky Derby. Obviously all hell broke loose sins and now the Derby's in September so that Kinda. Mix All our plan but really would oil down to Spacing and the fact that the Florida Derby is a great one on a race track that should play to independence hall strings. His Sire Constitution won the Florida Derby his Dam Sire Capetown Florida Derby and independence hall was fortunate enough to pull off. A victory. Comes Saturday in the Florida? Derby it would be a huge brother and his cap and really enhances potential as a stallion prospect Aaron. Thank you so much for joining us wishing you nothing but the best not only in the Florida Derby this Saturday but going forward with independence Hong. Let's hope that he gets a good trip. That all the equipment works the way it's supposed to this time. And we get to see the real independence hall appreciate it Bobbing New and Everybody out there. Just stay safe and healthy. But if you don't think that the connections of these forces spend countless hours calculating and planning their approach to picking out these races just just listen to what Aaron Wellman had to say about the decision to go to the Florida Derby. He got into the pedigree of Independence Hall. He got into the timing of the race. Of course that was when they thought the Derby was likely going to be run on the first Saturday. At least they were hoping it was and then he got into the track surface a surface that he felt would benefit independence hall and that he would handle and the great of the race being a great one. That's a big deal when you're talking about potentially having a horse that could go onto a be a stallion winning that grade one taking your shot on a race track that you feel he can handle. That's paramount winning grade. One is a huge deal when you start looking at the stallion prospects for these horses. Barclay tag talked about that with his law and again you're going to hear from Barkley coming up later. But one of the things that he talks about is the fact that when he went down this road the triple crown road and he wanted the. Derby preakness with funny CIDE. Funny CIDE was a gelding. They didn't have any of the inquiries that they're getting with his the law as a stallion prospect. That's a whole new game and Barkley admits that this is all different it look Barclay tag has had a believable horses in the past. But this is different. This is a horse. That is the favorite for the Kentucky Derby on March Twenty eighth in most people's opinions and in most future books and he's not a gelding like funny cide so things are different. Barkley in that team again. Barclays interview comes up at nine twenty eastern coming up in the next segment. You're gonNA hear from jockey floor on Giroux who is an ego her right at the end day on in the Fountain of Youth. Coming up later Well the Fountain of Youth Winner in the Florida Derby later today and then three time Florida Derby winner and hall of Famer Edgar Product will be with me at nine o'clock eastern to talk about allegedly allegedly tying the Great Angel Cordero for eighth on the all time wins list this past Wednesday and I say allegedly because there's much more to that story and looking forward to talking with Edgar coming up here at nine o'clock you know they. They Call Edgar Produ- The attorney his fellow jockeys calm the attorney because he is always so dapper when he shows up at the jocks room and then he'll put on his glasses and he looks so studio when he does it and quite often.

Eggers often there to support the young riders. He may need to talk to an attorney about this situation. coming up with his Equaling of Angel Cordero Junior. I'm looking to that visit nine o'clock and then of course we'll handicap all the big races at nine forty eastern time with Bobby Newman.

And the cool thing to me is here. He is fifty two years old and he talks about the desire that he still has to win a race when I asked him what motivates. What still motivates I group radio and hear him say that thrill of winning. That feeling you get when you win a horse race. And I've asked that same question to fellow hall of Famer John Velazquez in the past and it stands out to me. Because Johnny gives you the same answer. That feeling of being on the back of these majestic thoroughbreds winning a race. It's like a drug I can remember. I asked Johnny question after he was injured in the breeders. Cup by I WANNA say it was his spleen. I could be wrong but I wanna say it was a spleen and he was out for awhile. Nsf Johnny Listen. You have a beautiful wife unbelievable family. Surely you've been responsible with your money. And he has a why. Why keep doing this? Why keep coming back and putting yourself at risk and when you ask that question of a guy like John Velazquez and any of these top jockeys they will tell you. It's like a drug the feeling you get from winning a race and I can tell you just on the ownership side of things owning pieces of a few horses and I've been fortunate that all but one has gotten to the winner's circle. There is no feeling like it even standing on the sidelines. So I can't imagine being a board that horse at what that must feel like but according to every Jackie and you just heard Agar say it.

And here's what he had to say about his law Barclay. This is a horse whose accomplished so much thus far. Tis The law. He's three for four in his career. He won the grade one champagne at Belmont last year. He was third after some trouble in the grade. Three Kentucky or rather than the grape to Kentucky Jockey club over a sloppy track at Churchill took a little time off came back looks better than ever won the holy bull impressively share your thoughts on his win in the Holy Bull. He won that race by some three lengths. Well he just seems to take everything in stride and do everything easily and you know thought he could probably win it and he did. He's he's pretty nice he just It seems to be nonplussed about most things. Nothing you know. He does laying bother him. Just because you're out there and does his job unfortunately the loss that Kentucky race because it was a horrible horrible Jack and he got squeezed pretty good. There didn't come out of the gate. Will YOU KINDA slip coming out of the day or something? I couldn't really tell but you can't even go perfect all the time. When he won the Holy Bull. It was roughly two months ago the first of February. He's been in the news since then. He had a little bit of a hoof issue or a leg issue. Tell us what happened. And what's been going on in the eight weeks since that? Holy Bull Victory really pulled his shoe one time during her door to Gallup whether it was during the galloper after the Cowper hacking home or hacking out there when it was but anyway it It kinda got a boost. He'll out of it and and You know we just had to back off. Line we We kept trying where they didn't want to get into much time off or anything like that but we had to just keep going back and forth where we lost little time. He's he's all better now. He's in good shape so we're pretty happy with many people around the country. Horseface racing fans around the world consider. Tis The law to either be favourite or one of the favorites at this point for the Kentucky Derby but we know the Kentucky. Derby is not the first Saturday in May anymore. It's now the first Saturday in September Labor Labor Day. Weekend is it. A difference is more frustrating to see. The Derby moved to September when you have a horse like this that many people think is actually the favorite at this point. Well when you only get one every twenty years on other things to go wrong but that's life and I wouldn't trade him with anybody so we'll just have to see how he does the hardest thing to fit him into the racist as they put them on I'd like to. I'd like to make setup myself and had the ball go to it but it's not gonNA work that way. I'm sure so You know they're going to be more mature horses in the Kentucky Derby this time then there are any other time and this source has matured. Early and I thought it'd be a really good good shot in the Kentucky Derby but you never know now. It's just a lot of a lot of things can go by now. We will see this horse owned by Sachs Toga stable. Of course same owner and trainer connections as funny side who both won the Kentucky Derby and the preakness back in two thousand three the road to the Derby and whenever the preakness could be this year is obviously different Barclay with the change in dates. How does it change your strategy? What will you do differently now? If he happens to run a good race on Saturday well I don't know what to do. We'd probably If things just stay like they are we'd probably have to go out to to Oakland but if they got around to it and change it all around and put the preakness and the Belmont stakes back in order. Somehow I'd have to really consider going that way. We just have to see how how it works out. Anyway since you and the ownership group of Saka togas stable of already. Been Down this road. What are the biggest differences now compared to two thousand three back? Then when you were training funny side for Saka Toga stable. He was not getting quite the hype. As some of the other ones around the country I think empire maker was all rage back then now tis. The law is if not the favorite certainly one of the favorites and the more well-known three-year-olds coming in and if he runs well on Saturday or wins the race on Saturday Hill. Stamp himself right at the top of the list. What are the differences now with a a very very strong three year old looking at the triple crown races? Hopefully down the line as opposed to back in two thousand three a funny side. Yeah had three easy wins. In the fall they were in New York bred maiden race in two two little steaks and they were very nice but it was nice to and it was nice to win them and it was great for him but then he lost his three preparations for the Derby and I thought he ran well in the second to the first one. You know had a lot of problems in that but We we still are pretty high on him. And and that's what. He ran a great race in the wood memorial and he was just beating a little bit but that race he didn't he. He always had a habit of taking a little bit of a breather. And it didn't take as much of a breather in that race came back. Pretty strong was only beaten half a length so I was still hiked on him and Fortunately they ran a great race Kentucky Derby in one night and they came back and win the preakness decisively. So you know we. We like it from the very beginning. And we're disappointed that he lost his three preps but You know they're excusable their other. Good horses in there wasn't like he was really good horse in the He did come back and get the job done the derby preakness so we were. We were pretty happy with him and he was a very high strung horse. A little different than this horse. Choice is a little bit temperamental. But he's not as high strung and nervous. It's funny CIDE was so that makes it a little bit easier to handle and we're very happy with the wave coming along. Is there any difference in what your plans are or what the owners plans are going down this line with a Colt as opposed to a gelding? Of course funny cide famously won the Derby as a gelding whereas his the law is a full Colt. Any difference or when you're thinking of plans down the line. Well there's a lot of difference. 'cause it's a lot of money on the line for it was not much money on the line for a guilty so it's been very interesting with the offers and things like that. I don't want to win all that but It's it's it's a different different game but I think He can handle it all. He's he just seems like an amazing horse debate. It's just nothing seems to really bothering or getting his way and he does it so pretty happy. Heavy I don't think I don't think anybody could blame me for that once again. Partly tag joining us. Thank you so much for being with us on. Hris we wish you the best of luck. Tis The law. The morning line favorite in a full field of twelve saturdays grade. One three quarter million dollar curling Florida Derby goes race fourteen Barclay. Best of luck on Saturday and in the future with Tis the law. Thank you thank you very much. Yeah interesting stuff from Berkeley Tag. My thanks Barkley for joining Bobby. This past week on on our red brain radio show which by the way you listen to that show with bobby and Anthony every single Wednesday Thursday and Friday afternoon from three to six eastern time just head over to our website horse racing radio dot net and check out the schedule for all of our talk shows. We're GONNA continue as much as we possibly can to bring you. All of our talk shows as scheduled throughout the week as much of my race coverage as we can as long as they're running the big stakes races Will do that for you. Each and every week here on the network and again Florida Derby coverage comes up five thirty eastern time the afternoon serious to nineteen Xm to a one worldwide horse racing radio dot net and on our affiliates and Lexington Louisville and across the country. Tis The law emmy. Look this is a horse that you heard. Barkley say he feels like he has matured. Maybe even quicker than most of the other three year olds. That's why he's on top of the list. Obviously but he has matured beautifully to this point and Bobby asked him. If it's more frustrating for him to have the Kentucky Derby moved this year sitting here with the favourite Barkley was very Kennedy said. Yeah he said you can't do anything about it. Obviously but it is frustrating. Because you have a horse like this who you you start you pick them out as a yearling. Start breaking him you start getting into. All of the training is a two year old. You start to realize this forces special you watch him grow. You Watch immature physically and mentally you. Get up to this point where he is the top-ranked force sitting here on March twenty eighth. And that's all well and good with the Kentucky. Derby being on May second now is Barkley alluded to the whole picture changes with the September Fifth Kentucky Derby because all of the other three roles that are currently behind. Tis The law in terms of the development. Now have time to catch up all summer long so Tis the law even though he may still be the top ranked horse if we get to the Derby on fifth and he may still continue to get better but now all of those other three year old so their further behind even horses that are running in maiden races right now three year old maiden races that typically wouldn't even be in the Derby picture all of a sudden they are. And that's another interesting wrinkle to the whole Derby picture. Now you have to start watching these maiden races. It's a lot like backing the clock up to their two year old campaigns. That's where we are right now at least in terms of a timeline. So you have to watch those maiden races and you see some of those horses that burst onto the scene winning a maiden race and again if the Derby's May second they don't even they're not even a consideration make the field now all of a sudden they are and they could be one of the horses to beat on the first Saturday in September. We'll see if Tis the lock and continue to take the next steps along that road to Louisville later today in the Florida Derby and again we'll have coverage for you five thirty eastern here on the horse racing radio network getting into another break when I come back.

That was the voice of racing on. Nbc Mr Larry Combs with the call of the two thousand fourteen Florida Derby Constitution with a big victory that day for trainer. Todd pletcher one of his five victories in the race. That is a record. I told you that earlier. Todd sends out Gouverneur Morris in this afternoon's Florida. Derby he has a couple of horses. Actually Gouverneur Morris a son of his Florida Derby winner Constitution Constitution stands at Winstar and he has also represented by independent tall and favourite. Tis The law. Yeah he's done pretty well to start his stallion career Wondering by the way if Gouverneur Morris Independence Hall in Tis the law will all be among the top five in Bobby Newman's edition of calling all three roles which is presented by step spendthrift. Let's find out and they're all spendthrift farm presents calling all three year olds with. Bobby Newman fairgrounds. In New Orleans held their signature race last weekend. The great to one million dollars Louisiana Derby. This year's renewal was held a new distance of a mile and three sixteenths. It was a full field of fourteen and on paper. It seemed as though wells by New York. Traffic and modernised might all show speed possibly setting things up for any of the talented closers. But that's not how it played out. Well spy who was sent off. The slight favourite made the lead easily interflora. Njeru setting a very moderate pace. New York. Traffic was content to sit justin behind the leader while modernise track from fourth early. Lan when they reach the top of the stretch all three had plenty of closing kick but it was wells by kicking best and going onto the wire-to-wire score New York. Traffic ran a game race to be second with modernist getting up for third. They earned one hundred forty and twenty derby points respectively for their efforts. Final time was one fifty six and two today. Gulfstream Park holds their biggest race for three year olds the grade. One seven hundred fifty thousand dollar Florida Derby and it may be the most talented group of three year olds. We've seen square off so far this year the Barclay tag trainee Tis. The law is the six to five morning line favorite off his impressive scoring the holy bull stakes February that day. He defeated at on Dion by some three lengths and that one came back to air in the Fountain of Youth Four weeks ago. They both looked to have big shots today. But we'll have to deal with south Florida Newcomer Independence Hall. We last saw him finishing second as the big favourite in the Sam F Davis at Tampa but he had a few excuses that afternoon and could give the top two all they can handle if he fires. Today I'll be back with this week's top five list right after this word from spendthrift spent for farm added again now offering breeders are best incentives yet including deep discounts on young stallions and proven stallions and for the first time thirty days paid boarding at the farm of your choice so that you can read your mayor to a stallion from the most diverse roster in North America without the burden aborting costs serious deals on serious stallions only at spendthrift the breeders farm. Call today learn more eight five nine two nine four zero zero three zero or visit spendthrift farm dot com. This week's top five list of Derby contenders looks like this number. One is authentic undefeated for trainer. Bob Baffert won the San Felipe. Last out should run in the Santa Anita Derby next weekend number. Two honor second authentic last time out he's also pointing for the Santa Anita. Derby number three is independence hall suffered his first defeat in the SAM. F Davis last time out. Iran's in the Florida Derby today number four Tis. The law should be favored in today's Florida. Derby and number five Max field nearing return to the races. Possibly in the Arkansas Derby at oaklawn on May the second. That's your calling all three year old segment presented by spendthrift the breeders farm. Well as you heard me mention a few times throughout the program one hundred sixty one days away from the first Saturday in September and the run for the roses this year to be exact one hundred sixty one days nine hours six minutes and fifty seconds until the horses go into the starting gate and joined now by the man you just heard in that calling all three roads segment. Bobby Newman who will be part of my broadcast team. This afternoon. Bobby and I will bring you coverage of the Florida. Derby starting at five thirty eastern time that's presented by red brands and the F. T. B. O. A. Bobby one thing that struck me as I was listening to your top five list in this week's edition of calling all three roads. Tis The law who is the favourite on most people's lists was actually ranked number four in your derby rankings. That's true in another thing. Have about that top five list since we recorded that yesterday before Santa. Anita made their announcement. We don't know where authentic and honor. Ap are going to show up next since they were going to run next Saturday in the Santa Anita Derby but yes I have a I have been a big Fan of independence hall along. I think he has some excuses. Last time out at Tampa Bay downs in the Sam F Davis. I think he's capable of a lot better than that and his best races. I think. Make him the one to beat actually in the Florida. Derby today you mentioned in that Segment that this may be the most talented group of three roles. We've seen in any one prep race and you know some of the horses from the West Coast may argue that. Because we've seen some good ones out there But yeah when you get into independence hall annotate endymion and Tis the law together in one race. You have to think that this one's pretty salty. It is very salty. And obviously it's a mile and nate Which we haven't seen From most of the other three year olds thus far. There are some others in here. Besides those big three. That are exciting horses. Gouverneur Morris has really done nothing wrong and his three race career. Two wins and a second place. Finish in that second placement was to Max Field. Who at the time? People thought was a lot of people thought. That was the most impressive two year old race of the year in the breeders. Futurity at keeneland back in October and Max Field. If not being the favor would have been the. Maybe the second choice in the Breeders Cup juvenile not Suffered a minor injury. But it's it's a great field you've got some up and comers in their men as seen on TV he's never run a bad race in his career and he gets the advantage of the inside post today with Pokka Lopez who seems to win races and Bunches at Gulfstream. It's really a very talented field and Happy that Not only we're GONNA get to see the race that we're actually racing Gulfstream but it's a beautiful day here in south Florida now and it may actually get to about ninety degrees. Oh Wow summer like conditions in the South Florida area today and again post time for that Florida Derby coming up at six thirty six eastern time. I mentioned bobby. Our coverage begins at five thirty. It also includes the grey to Panamerican and the Grade Three Appleton which are the two races preceding the Florida derby any thoughts on those two races and who might jump up with a big effort. I think they're both very interesting races. The appleton which goes race twelve will probably have the shortest price on the afternoon with Zulu Alpha who not only was an impressive winner of the Pegasus World Cup turf back in January but came back with a great win from way out of it in the Mac Dermott last time out. There's not a lot of speed in the race and the course. That intrigues me. As a horse that Zulu Alpha beaten the Pegasus. And that's number one channel cat. I thought Channel Cat has always been better laying up close to the pace. If not on the lead I think with an inside posts in the post in a race without lot less early speed in it. That's what we're GONNA see Jockey. Joel Rosario. Do What Channel. Cat also intriguing. Look we haven't read anything about this but don't forget that the pay raises all of the entrance both in the dirt and the turf had to run without the medication lasix now. We don't know if anyone bled in those races we don't know who absolutely needs lasix and who doesn't obviously it did not hurt Zulu Alpha. Maybe it hurt channel cat. I am just guessing. I don't know but I'm willing to give him another chance. And he's down on the inside ninety two on the line. I think he would be the best chance of upsetting the apple cart in the Panamerican Zulu Alpha work to win the thirteenth race. The Grade Three appleton. Wow this is a difficult race to handicap. And if you're playing pick four pick fives or that mandatory payout kick six today. If you have a strong opinion here more power to because to me. It looks like a total spread type of race. The favourite will probably be the todd pletcher trainee Samba For Lewis is who I think is one ten races in the last two days. At Gulfstream Park. Science has written Son of intimacy several times in the past It looks like he's getting better and better but it's not a layup for him. There are several other very talented runners and I know on my ticket. I'm spreading. Yeah I I guess you Kinda have to especially if you're playing that mandatory payout that this was a good day to play. I mentioned the carryover of one point six billion going into today's card but they have to give it all away today. Bobby so if if you're putting together a ticket you mentioned spreading in that race. How do you approach putting together a pick six ticket Like you're going to have to do today. Well these days there are so many very competitive races. You really need to find one or two races that you can narrow it down at least in my opinion or you're going to be spending a lot more money than you really want to spend Cer- for me I've gotten the race that I really like and that I'm going to single is race number. Eleven it's the great to Gulfstream Park. Oaks these are three year old fillies. They're going a mile and a sixteenth on the main track and the second choice on the morning line is number five spice is nice and other. Todd pletcher trainee. This one was supposed to be ridden by heavier passed a lot as of now. I do not see any changes for the card So I don't know who's going to pick up the mount on this philly. She's very very talented. Choose renting twice in her career broke her maiden a very impressively by twelve lengths and off that dominant score. She was actually sent off the three to five favorite in the Great Devonian Dale. Despite the fact that she was facing tunnel is shape who already four for four and a multiple stakes winner. So I think the odds were wrong that day. The public got it wrong. Spices nice ended up running. Second to tonal is shape only beating a little over a length. I think she's going to improve leaps and bounds. Not only stretching out going around two turns but being that this is just the third starter career. There's a lot of pace in this race. I think she'll sit just and behind them three to one on the morning line spices. Nice is where I would single today and then I would go from there. I could spread in some other. Races may narrow the curling Florida Derby down to two maybe three runners because I I honestly think that both That both Tis the law and Independence Hall are Tad Better. Right now than what we've seen from the other so I don't know if I would just use those two. Or maybe maybe throw in one more likely winner Morris But that's the way I would go single in that race. Two or three in the Florida Derby and then Kinda spread around that and Hope I get lucky. Bobby Newman with me here. On the horse racing radio network. You'll hear more from bobby this afternoon as kickoff coverage of the Florida Derby five thirty eastern time serious to nineteen. Xm To o-on Hake Ninety six point one here a Lexington and ESPN six eighty in Louisville other affiliates around the country also carrying that coverage. You can go to our website horse racing radio dot net to check it all out in the last segment. Bobby we heard your interview with Barclay tag from Red Brain Radio this week and I touched on this one thing. He talked about which I thought was. Interesting is the fact that he feels like his. The law has matured maybe quicker than many of the other three year olds to this point in the season and that's why he's the top ranked horse and that's what you're looking for. If derbies on the first Saturday in May now. He asked the hope that he can continue to be above all the others. By the time we get to the Derby on September fifth. I I thought that was interesting. It's going to be very tough. And it's unlucky for horses that are maturing at the exact point when the Derby is supposed to be That it gets moved back but you know what that's just the way things are every. Unfortunately the world was turned upside down a couple of weeks ago and everyone is suffering in some way or not whether it's financially or just being a gigantic distractions in their life and when you have horses like Tis the law or maybe authentic out on the west coast that basically fit and look like they're teaching right around the first Saturday in May and now have to wait four more months it's unlucky. You look at the other side of it though. The horse's like Max `field for trainer Brendon. Walsh who are coming back from injury now. They have the extra time they could be back in top form by the time we get to the Gertie. How about Bob Baffert Charlatan? This is a horse race twice. He broke his maiden super impressively. He won an allowance super impressively. He may not have had enough points to get to the Derby the first Saturday in. May He's got plenty of time now to try to get there the first Saturday in September. So the pictures changed. It's very unfortunate For the connections pissed law but hopefully he will be as good then as he is now or even better when we get to September. Yeah so many questions will have to be answered including the prep race schedule that these horses will put together as they move closer. Churchill will have to announce the revised points races that horses will need to compete in as we move throughout the summer. It's going to be crazy bobby. Listen to appreciate the visit my friend. Thanks for spending some time this morning and looking forward to our coverage later this afternoon can't wait looking forward to it all right. Bobby Newman here on H. R. R. N.
