"Very cool. So with league play. Are there enough organizations. Now, spreading that leagues can be more than just local. Yes there. Right. Now, there are two main national bodies that do leak play all of the clubs of which it went from just a couple dozen. We'll be I started to now they're probably closer to a hundred if not over one hundred around the US that are all part of one of those two organizations. and each of those have some interoperability. So as someone from Charlotte happened to be over Nashville, they could come into our club and throw with our league and it would count towards their lead because we all use the same rules, same format, the same. Requirements for equipment. So that's kind of the fun part of it is. You know you can boast because you know that everyone else is using the exact same acts the same target distance and exact same material. So it's apples to apples and not. Different different standards. Very. Cool. So do you think like with other some other sports that haven't yet and this is a fairly new sport as a sort of organized activity is there are their aspirations to put this in the Olympics not that I've heard of yet but. They can add skateboarding and mountain biking, and some of the other craziness in their nothing would surprise me it. It does require skirt and. Skillset and once you see it's actually I. Don't know if you've ever been on late night espn or somebody their sports channels, they'll show some of the competitions and the and girls that are playing will hit twenty five bulls is in a row. They're that good at it. So it does require you know once you get past the basic ability to hit the entire would target but to hit that small center instead it takes a quite a bit of skilled to to get to that level so it could be there one day. Well you know from I have to admit I've I've become addicted to the TV series called outlander, which it deals with highlanders from Scotland who in fact, many of whom moved to North Carolina and there's highlands North Carolina this on and they have the at grandfather mountain apparently except for this year because of Kobe, they have the annual highland games. So is seraing part of that do you know are you able to participate in that once it returns? I I haven't heard of it specifically in the Highland Games is an event I wouldn't be surprised as it does sort of tend to. Attract that same Manley manliness that the games do with rolling logs and boulders and you know some. More entertaining options but if they were to offer or ask reaping happy to hop over there and. Show them what we have to offer. Yeah, I'm sure I'm sure you know you mentioned different skill sets in terms of throwing technique with axe throwing that I know you've got a three person ownership partnership and each of you have very distinct skill. So tell us you mentioned Amy Zimmerman already with her aesthetic and design skillset anything else from her, and then your third partner. Well, it started out as a crazy idea with me but I knew ahead of time what my limitations of what my strengths were. So, I sort of sat down and tried to figure out what skill sets would be needed for such a venture. I'm personally. Into obviously computer software administration. My strength is more in the boring logic hiring firing coming up with rules paying the bills. Stuff that most people are terribly bored by but that that's where my interests lie oddly enough amy..

"He have the call the Breeders Cup. Classic Vino Rosso defeating McKinsey. Todd pletcher Bob Baffert. The trainers of those two horses is respectively and this past week. Bob And todd sat down for a panel that was moderated by Amy Zimmerman at the university. Arizona's Race Track Industry Program Global Symposium on racing and Byron came from the blood horse was there to cover it. He brought you all the information and all the news used very very well. And he's with me now here on the Horse. Racing Radio Network Byron Good Morning. Good morning my thank you for the kind words to say that. Yeah of course course now that you know for those of us who weren't there being able to keep up with it through your articles on blood horse was very helpful and there were looked or no shortage of things disgust into talk about at that symposium and and you had your hands full going through and covering all of those. Let's start with the one that I just mentioned. It was called called a personal perspective of racing's past present and future Bob Baffert Todd pletcher sharing their thoughts on a variety of topics. What were some of the things that stood out to you Byron well They began to kind of recalling their careers and both of them were Went to the university there. But the the meat of the The whole session. There was when they got into topics of Medicaid and both of them support The elimination of lasix. Not so much because I think in baffles. Casey expressed a bit of a fatigue over it. He's kind of tired of hearing about it and in in Fletcher's case. He mentioned that he thinks it would be worthwhile from public perception standpoint. So I think a lot of trainers they see a positive today six in terms controlling bleeding but they also understand the many many issues that are facing the industry right now and that was one of the main takeaways from their paneth. Aw That's interesting that you use the word fatigue. When you talk about Bob Baffert his stance on lasix? I think many of us in the industry probably feel the same way and I I get. Todd's take two. I guess from a public perception standpoint. Although I would argue that I'm not sure that the average fan really understands what goes on in terms of the medication that's used and and there isn't much of it used in our sport today but there are a couple of things What else did they have to say? What other topics did they did? They address I think one of the issues that both of them feel is that many trainers are being blamed for what happened in California or for that matter any breakdown that happens and one of their key takeaways is. There's a whole team of people that are involved in a horse from its days when it's The Mayor Erin the stallion or bread until you know win. It makes it to the race traffic and they talked about transparency and everybody kind of essentially doing the right thing. They're the end users as they acknowledged but at the same time we all have a responsibility to do the right thing as opposed to you know looking in in a short term view and maybe looking for profits more so than say the welfare the Horse. So that's Bedford mentioned. which was kind of interesting? It's you know he said that. Now there's so much. Breeding to cells opposed to breeding race. There was a higher percentage years ago and so now he compared it to you know. They're baking their pie but they don't WANNA eat pie. Meaning the the breeders because pass it along so I think both of them feel feel a sense. That trainers are being blamed for many of the issues that are going on currently yeah one of the quotes that was in the article. You wrote that people can go back to blood lead horse dot com and read all of your articles from the symposium but one of them was Bob saying that the situation in California. It was like a wildfire that got out of control and we didn't know how to put it out. All we did was point fingers at everybody. He went on to say now. I think we've got it a little bit better contained and I guests that that's probably the way most people look at it. At this point I would agree. I would agree. I think you know they made a lot of dramatic changes out in California California particularly in March and of course even till today. We don't know precisely the reason for the rash of breakdowns. I mean we know there's a combination involved but it's very hard to just point a finger as it was the race track or it was medication or was this. It was that so many of the changes they may. Hey were widespread and I think that Kinda for flex in in Bedford statement. That they were you know. Try Try and literally everything And perhaps on some of these issues it may not be related. But it's very hard at this point to say specifically what Are the key elements that did contribute to the rash pounds. There was also a panel that was comprised of horse players that was called listening to the horse racing customer. And Yeah I know that quite often at the symposium they will have horse players come up and address the audience talk about different things that they feel can be done to to support the people that support the game and that's the betters What did you take out of that panel Byron? Well that panel in my opinion was a little little more weight as fresh as some of the other ones because it was a lot of the same topics that have been discussed previously for example things like lowering the takeout got and things of that nature. But having said that you know the reason we're still discussing it is because it really hasn't happened Very much so oh these guys that spoke on there and it was a very well informed. Smart Panel you know they spoke about you know really listening to the customer in terms of okay. Let's make make this game. More appealing Pat Cummings from the survey idea. Foundation was very sad. That horse racing in terms of wagering product is like stale bread compared to fresh bread of of sports wagering. And you know when you look at the difference in takeout. One Bet is superior to to the other in terms of there's a smaller rake On a sports plagiar- or at least a traditional one. And you know we talked about. We have to make ourselves more appealing in the marketplace and that includes things such as transparency having stewards explained decisions. Having you know put people on like trek superintendents to describe how a track is maintained taint so for those people that are you know looking attract bias those kinds of things and of course they they mentioned take out and and desire to have it lower and then someone from the audience Naturally a lot of the audience members at the symposium or restrict executives brought up the fact that you know at Canterbury years ago they took a pretty dramatic step in reducing takeout and they did not see the benefits impact. They took it on the chin. Pretty good so I think. There's a very much a reluctance in in the industry to have across the board takeout Reductions they might you know put a low takeout on a pick four. Pick five something like that. But I don't I think there's a whole lot of support They leased as I'm taking the temperature of a wide across the board reductions. Talking with Byron King From Blood Lead Horse. He was at the symposium on raising Arizona. This past week and Did a great job covering it and Getting those articles out there at blood horse DOT COM It d g get the sense Byron that when you listen to the various panels and in particular this this panel here talking about the reduction and take out what some of the players would like to see done. Do you get that. The industry will listen and that real change can come about from these conversations. Well well I hate to sound cynical because I've you know I would love to see it happen But I think in some of these instances Do a great job of talk and not necessarily implementing it. At least that's been my you looking at it over the years I think you know ultimately ultimately what it comes down to on a lot of these issues is people have to see the horse players. Want a better bottom line obviously right and so do the race tracks so so I think the race tracks want to see returns that they can feel comfortable about so I would say on this particular issue. We're going to need just see. Some horse player really need to embrace these lower takeout wagers. I think if if change is really going to happen and for the next step you know to move forward There's there's no doubt in my mind that when you see certain takeout wagers and when you have carryovers like in pick five or something people really step up and you know really support those wagers and I think you know those that will be the key needs to be going to special. I think both sides for her changed to happen. On this particular point you mentioned Pat Cummings with a thoroughbred idea foundation being part of that panel. I I don't know if this came up at all in the discussion Byron but I'll I'll bring it up now. He the thoroughbred idea foundation had sent out a press release. I guess it was last week I thought this might have some merit. Jim Jim Nance the longtime CBS broadcaster had offered some ideas to the NFL about a Fischel reviews and the challenges that we see so so often now that had become part of the game and he said that he thinks there ought to be cameras in the room when the officials are going to the replay booth going back to New York as it is and so that the fans the viewers can watch the officials. Make the decision on whatever call as supposed to just coming back and saying the call stands or the call has been overturned and not giving an explanation and the parallel they were trying to draw with a thoroughbred idea. Foundation was is that is so so often in this sport we have stewards who make decisions. I La in the Kentucky Derby this year and the decisions are never really explained and and I think that that is a point. That is a big sticking point to a lot of players especially if you have money on the horses disqualified or even vice versa. You'll why what what was the thought process here into how transparent parents in the sport which is something we're always bragging about and and saying that we need to do. Then you know I think that may they have some merit. Did that come up at all. In that conversation we did talk about transparency with Stewart decisions whether or not it would I don't recall it being being in that much detail. Yeah that sounds really interesting to me. I think it's and we've seen I think in some other jurisdictions in other countries as we've seen cameras a little bit in the room with some of these seward's and I think it's a good thing and anytime you show people The process involved breath assuming the people are doing a good job. It will Restored degree of faith. I think in the whole system. I think that's what horse there's players want. That's what anybody wants with an official that you know. They want some accountability there and they want to see done thoroughly and efficiently and all those those kinds of things. I would certainly support that. I think that would be a very very good thing. I think you know there's a reluctance I've seen this over the years with some stores that you know. They WANNA make their decision but they don't necessarily want to defend their Decision and I think clearly there needs to be because or players are disillusioned with many of the decisions that go down or the lack of consistency between race track and racetrack. Yeah many of the racing officials that I know and the stewards that I'm friends with wouldn't WanNa hear that but I think that you know I think it's a bad idea at all You know especially if VR GonNa say that we want more transparency in the sport and we want to cater to the horse player into the fans. This is one way to do it and I know that. I don't think Jim's idea the idea was met with open arms with the NFL. Either but It's it's something to talk about. And it's an idea and it's kind of thinking out of the box and I don't think it's a bad thing Byron King with me here on the Horse Racing Radio Network Byron what other topics or comments stood out to you over the course of the racing symposium. What are the key an interesting of pieces with a mattress Mac or to macphail who is as everyone? Most everyone racing house owned run happy and has promoted that stallion. He spoke he was a popular speaker. He talked to on a wide range of topics From his days in the furniture business he spoke about marketing during one of the panels and he of course for those of Your listeners that follow baseball through the years. He made some sizable butts on the Houston Astros and at some promotions involved With his furniture store and so he spoke about the marketing and I think people were very very much interested in what he had to say. I think people tend to really either like Jim Maggot. Vail quite a bad love. You and there's a little over the top and so he was a fascinating panelist as were a number of the others of you know they had some track surface discussion ocean Michael Dickinson. Who is the proprietor of to Peter Footings and and you know we talked about synthetic tracks and and whatnot and and that was interesting along with the discussion about dirt surfaces so they covered a wide range of topics. And unfortunately I couldn't attend them all. That's the teen or fifteen. Yeah it was. I've been there before for multiple symposiums and they do a tremendous job Did you get a chance to play any golf. When you're out there I did not? I did some hiking however it's It's such a lovely outdoors Corona's a really spectacular place if he loved the outdoors and I I did get enjoy that a new record for loss balls on that course that they have out there uh-huh by where they do the symposium it's a good one and and Certainly I within been playing more in the I'm sure my shots would have landed in the desert more so by Renqing..

That was interesting was the panel that was comprised of horse players. It was called listening to the horse racing customer and so often in the sport I think we forget about that customer of ours. The horse player without the two dollar. Better we don't have a sport. This is a a betting game and we don't have a sport without the better. It's that simple.

"Welcome to the frame. I'm Steven Cuevas filling in for John horn allegations of sexual misconduct have toppled some of the biggest names in Hollywood over the past couple of years. Harvey Weinstein Bill Cosby, Kevin Spacey, but a new investigation from the Daily Beast by my guest Amy's Zimmerman chronicles over a decade of alleged sexual and physical assault by a lesser-known Hollywood player screenwriter and producer, max Landis. The thirty three year old son of a ward winning director John Landis. Several women have come forward, alleging max Landis of violence rape and emotional abuse and today variety reported that Landis has been dropped by his manager Amy's Zimmerman says from her research, Landis appear to use his position in Hollywood to his advantage. A lot of the women in the story describing you'd LA there, people who are interested in breaking into the entertainment industry. And on top of all of that he is saying here. These connections where you hear these opportunities. And it seems like at least according to these accusations. These are the women who max would allegedly victimize. Amy did any of the women, you spoke with who were allegedly physically sexually assaulted by max. Landis, did any of them go to the police to with authorities or at least documents this alleged abuse in the way of photographs of telling other friends, writing things down in diary, and so forth. There's a story of Kelly rates. She had basically gone to the police with an allegation of sexual assault against max Landis, and Halley's, French who witnesses alleged sexual assault was at the courthouse. She alleges that max Landis is attorney basically came over and had a conversation after that conversation, Halley, did not wanna participate anymore. We definitely made an effort to speak with friends family members people who the women, the accusers may have disclosed to around the time it'd be alleged abuse or shortly afterwards. So we do that throughout the peace. One of the women wrote max, an Email, saying, this is the abuse that I remember from our romantic relationship, and he responded, something along the lines of. Wow. That sounds terrible. So nothing remotely resembling a denial. So that Email, certainly stuck with me. You know, even about two years ago, an alleged victim tweeted out some of these allegations against max land. So how is this allowed to go on for so long in two thousand seventeen there were kind of flurry of social media posts? But the thing about those social media posts is, I believe there were no firsthand to cues IRS. So this was a lot of secondhand allegation and. And then fast, former two years, I guess, in February two thousand nineteen a woman wrote an anonymous medium post which was you know, her firsthand allegation of an attempted sexual assault. But yeah, what happened in the interim two years. A lot of the people, I spoke with for this article were really expecting a big expose to come out and the question of why this hasn't happened sooner that question still really Lincoln, one other thing, your piece mentions. This unpublished Hollywood. Reporter expose on land is can you confirm that, that story exists? And if so why wasn't published because the Hollywood reporter has been pretty aggressive about, you know, outing such abusers. And in Hollywood. In that medium post. She said that she had spoken with the Hollywood reporter for an article, but that that article had never come out. So we had the Daily Beast covered that medium post and at the time we reached out to the Hollywood reporter and didn't get a response back from them. And I also for that article I connected with the author of the medium post, and she sent me emails back and forth, that she had with a journalist from the Hollywood reporter, so to the best of our ability, we did confirm that there was something in the works at the Hollywood reporter at that time. So that would have been around twenty seventeen I don't know how far they got with that article. I don't know what the circumstances were or why are never publish. I'm talking to Amy Zimmerman entertainment reporter at the Daily Beast about allegations against max Landis, Amy much of this alleged abuse occurred prior to the metoo movement. So is this behavior? Kind of a vestige of those pre metoo days or. Does it perhaps just scratch the surface of a trend that continues in Hollywood? Most of the behavior does predate me, too. But we quote on Baker, I believe she ended their relationship, maybe four months ago, really not long ago at all. So if the question is if me to, you know, load down or halted maxes alleged abuse, I would say, no, not at all. Well, until recently max Landis was still attached to a couple of projects as screenwriter and producer. What's the status of his involvement with those and his reputation going forward and Hollywood. Yeah. So for the piece we connected with a Representative for the producers of shadow in the cloud, which is a film that max originally wrote. And it's currently I believe being filmed, and what that Representative told us is that the script was optioned prior to the wave of twenty seventeen allegations. They allege that they were unaware of those alligator. Nations, and that after the allegations surfaced, they renegotiated with Landis to have him removed as a producer, and they further told us that maximum will not be involved in the film in any way. The other kind of project is this film deeper that I believe is in pre production and I've reached out to everyone. I could think of involved in that project to try to see what these allegations, and what this article means for that project moving forward. And I think we're just gonna have to see, but I think that the question a lot of people are asking, did you reach out to max Landis for a comment, and if so what was his response? Yeah. We reach out to max multiple times. They're responsive. No response. We never received a comment. Amy Zimmerman is entertainment reporter for the Daily Beast. Amy, thanks for talking to us, and thanks for your reporting. Thank you so much for having me..

A column with is suggested headline and five paragraphs in you had not actually addressed. What is the suggested headline. What would have happened. I would have been told I was bad. Yes, I want to give her the most benefited out even if you're writing for a leftist publication and the angle here is and it's a good angle. That's the angle we're going after. We're not used to seeing this sort of rhetoric from the left. We usually see this from the right. So even have a couple of sentences of connective tissue that talk about some of these things from your point of view. I think we would get grant some journalistic, you know, flexibility there in order to create a compelling angle, right? You don't need five paragraphs. That's not that's not connective tissue, that is that's body armor that is wrapping yourself in Perot clutching and political correctness, almost as if you are almost to send the message that you are. Sorry, you have to say what you are about to start saying in paragraphs. Six. That's all I took it anyway. So now we go to paragraph six, and this is the actual story. So when the CW announced that they were looking for an out actress for those of you. The don't know what that means. Someone who is openly homosexual. They were looking for an out actress to play a lesbian bat woman in a new TV show the first gay superhero to headline alive action series. You could see the backlash coming from a mile away. The description of the character read like a mash up of crap that neo-nazis don't like armed with a passion for social Justice in a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane sores onto the streets of Gotham as bad woman and outlets Byan highly trained streetfighter prime to snuff out the failing cities, criminal resurgence. The sneering Breitbart bog post basically writes it self, which is ironic because who's the guy Breitbart often credited for making a national name. President Trump other than Trump who else. Who am I thinking of toss Veritas, James O'Keefe now keep going come. There's so many more obvious than that. Milo. Oh, yeah. So many things that go. But yes, don't get gayer than Milo for goodness, sakes loss to CR, a not crtv lost a CPAC speaking engagement for advocating for pederasty, which is the ancient practice of homosexual men, shepherding teen boys into into full fledged adult homosexuality. I forgot that he was invited to see pack. That's sad. Yes. Confirmed. Shockingly though the daily says, the backlash to ruby roses recently announced casting appears to actually becoming from inside the house from fans who seem to love the idea of an out actress playing Kate Kane, but want more from their trail-blazing lesbian superhero. According to deadline. Bat woman was revived in two thousand six is a Jewish lesbian. The first lesbian title character in the DC universe back in may. It was announced the bat woman would appear in the upcoming CW aero. Verse crossover event then came the news that Kate Kane would likely follow up that appearance with their own TV show. Executive produced by the people that brought you the vampire diaries last week, ruby rose celebrated or casting and Instagram post writing. This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on TV and felt alone and different while you represented now. 'cause you're every third character. But just two days after the announcement rose quit Twitter in a series of tweets that appeared to call out critiques from the from the queer community, including misguided allegations that the gender fluid actor is not really a lesbian. In the now deleted message rose wrote, where on earth did ruby is not a lesbian, therefore she can't be bat. Women come from has to be the funniest. Most ridiculous thing I've ever read. I came out at twelve half for the past five years to deal with. She's to gay. How do y'all flip it like that? I didn't change. I wish we would all support each other and our journeys..
