"An ankle injury at the end of the season coupled with sore shins early in her three year old campaign meant that bewitch would be raised sparingly in 1948. Still, she won the Ashland stakes at keeneland as the one to 5 favorite, and she captured the modesty handicap at Arlington park before a crowd of 25,000. Far from dazzling with her looks, but which was described by many observers as short and chunky. But trainer Ben Jones said of the dark brown Philly that the key to her success was the fact she never made a mistake. Jockey Doug Dodson agreed, saying that she had perfect manners. You know a main streak and was easy to handle. Such was the respect for bewitched that she was the only Philly allowed to share top billing with calumets other two superstars at the time. She was the letter B in what the press called calumets ABC trio, with the others being armed and citation. The former ranked as the richest gelding in the sports history, while the latter was the Triple Crown hero of 1948. And the fact she had beaten citation gave her a celebrity status all her own. In January of 1949, for example, high Aaliyah racetrack ran ads in the Miami Herald with the Phillies picture braced with the statement come to haye Aaliyah this winter, and see the Philly who beat citation. As it happened, bewitch would not need to rest on her laurels from two years earlier. Instead, the 1949 season would see her put together so impressive performances which would lead to another championship title. For example, there was a track record at Churchill downs, beating males and covering 6 furlongs and one minute ten and two 5th seconds to break a record which had stood for 13 years..

"I think that would give us a better indication of what to make of the american group. I don't know. I don't think of though is as good goo folk. Whatever is as good as domestic spending but again delmar turf is a little different magic point. Best firm turf euros. won't care about. Yeah the euros are just better is a collective group. What what i think. The race at domestic spending comes out of which was at arlington park. Which was the mr de mrs de whatever the heck it was. Ns it's like will. Maybe that american group is a little bit closer than we thought. But in terms of the breeders cup. I'm with i'm kind of with magic like they don't stand a chance to euros as far as if you brought the best euros over the top. It's not even close. I'm pretty sure they would run one two three four. Maybe domestic spending can crack the top three. But i have no interesting dafoe unless he is double digits to be quite honest. I just don't think. I have much of an interest again. Double digits may be but outside of that not really. We'll see that's the thing about that. Equaliser right that In terms of of the break-up is you get prices. If you ever opinion you usually shit. Santa barbara braga. Beat these guys. Schoolyard horses right. She and she's philly. So santa barbara is a beast anyways high. Let's get to the main event. Of course we go into this race. I don't remember halts you. We were close to. What were we going into. the travers. Were up eighty dollars going into the travers and can't remember exactly okay so we go to the travers up. We have one hundred dollar to win on central quality and again. This is tricky. Because i don't think either one of us on this horse would be pounded like he was just given the travers thought. Well surely people are going to be taking shots. They're gonna be trying to beat him. Yes he's going to be a low price but the four to five probably. Yeah it seems fair. This worst goes off the two to five. Just absolutely blasted. Never you could tell us locked in terms of how the tourists skating bet but he won so you know. Maybe we didn't get a huge return. Their bed hundred a win win. We know we're going to get a gas. We make money on the day. He was unbelievable. I talking about the overall wagering guides one hundred dollars to win. How did we end up at ferrying on the day. Yeah so we made on the day. We made one hundred twenty seven dollars which equals out to a thirty four point three percent. Roi so pretty solid That brings our total. Roi for the year up to thirty three point two percent. So we've done very very well Seven hundred eighty three dollars profit. It's played these all away from the breeders cup. Last year to the travers. Now so a lot to be proud of here Say thirty four point three percent are i was great. Here's the deal with this with this wager. It was pretty stupid at two to five but you. You can't what he's supposed to do. You know what i mean. It's like we thought four to five likely three to five at worst and a three to five. I don't think this is a bad wager. Obviously you don't wanna bet horses two to five very often. Now this worked out and he he definitely one and paid wanted pay. I think we got forty five dollars back for this. So it's You can't look at it as well. That's an atm. That's forty five bucks but still you wanted to be a little bit more than two to five here. As far as the performance. I mean it was never in doubt. You might look at into hockey. Say that they were neck and neck and the strategy that was. What was it like a hand or half hankyoreh down. 'cause i've seen him run any times. It was never in doubt he was gonna win that coming from the top of the stretch and the run happy travers and it is midnight bourbon and essential quality and now their heads apart.

"This to us. This new color coded system. How are you doing? Oh, we were going to get him in just a second. Something else in the Chicago Tribune, though I do want to tell you about is Did you see this thing that they are asking that they interviewed some families here locally? It's a great great great article. And they're talking about how there are some families. What you think about this requiring a negative cove ID test in order to attend your Thanksgiving. Like Would you do that? Seems like this is a This is a year with all kinds of new requests, and some people are just saying that's what we're going to require, in order to have you over. Others were saying that you've got a self quarantine for 14 days. Before you come up. You know you saw that you saw that was some of celebrities They say. Oh, we're going on vacation we're doing you know, Kim Kardashian Notoriously had that big big, You know, thing that everyone said Wow. Is that really okay? And she said, Well, we all self quarantine for 14 days before I don't know is this is this is like kind of a new bar. Would you ask people who are coming over for the holiday to self quarantine for 14 days? Would you ask him to get a covert test? I wonder how the lines are, too for covert tests. As you're seeing things increase. I saw some video in DuPage County that they were showing that the lines looked really long. Like, you know, back when you before, when a couple months back when Your first available testing was just new. Remember how the lines were kind of long? I looked it almost look reminiscent of that. It wasn't blocks long, but it certainly seemed to be picking up a lot. If you've gone to get a covert test. Let us know what your experience has been here locally. 31 to 98 1 72 100. We want to know about it. It's you know, it's interesting because you've got this rising cases you've got. You've got more contact tracing in place. So some folks are also going to get tested because of that. You know, you got more more of that working, although they're saying that thie Illinois Department of Public Health is still saying that folks are not picking up the phone like they should be. When the contact tracers call it still at a much higher level, and they're still reaching Far more people then they did before, so you've got this sort of influx of testing and getting two more people who might have been exposed. Hey, Frank wg, and what do you have an experience can share. Yeah. I've been trying to get a Kobe test for Ah, three times now. And first time I got there about two o'clock waiting the line there. Five. They shut down and I never got tested. Next day. I went back at like 8 30 waited about three hours and I gave up because that only about athletes through so if they expect increased testing and get a lot of people doing it, they gotta figure something else out. Where was your testing? Can you tell me you don't tell me to many details, Details If you're not comfortable. Where was I? Arlington Park, and you just did you go when you said 8 30 is that like in the morning one day one day when it's like, too And then the next day, and that one I never got done by was still waiting in line at five. Probably a couple 100. Maybe 100 cars were still waiting. They just told us to leave. And then the next day when early and I waited somebody 30 wait till about 11 30. I was about maybe halfway through the life. I said, forget this. I love Wow. It was we were these the kinds of places you're driven by before and there was no problem in kind of a trip. You know, it's always been a line. I actually had a test there two or three weeks ago. And it took 45 minutes. But this is way beyond what I ever expected me to cook are backed up out onto one of the major roads there. So I don't know what the deal is. They got a big problem there. So what do you mean Tio? Um, I'm just I'm just gonna assume I I feel like I feel like I'm just, um, I'm okay. I think the big crowd. I think the other problem is when the mayor and derail talks about mandatory stuff, you know anybody who's following the mandatory roof. I no, I don't Which mandatory rules you're talking about, Like moving when they were saying about you coming yet, Corbett, If you're coming in from another state mandated to self quarantine for 14 days, you know anybody who's doing that. It's hard to find your right. I mean, I think even people who are being very careful may not quarantine for 14 days. Right yet. You're just you're you're you're not. And now that the the fact is simple Fact is our numbers here in Chicago are very similar to these other areas to it, sort of. You know, it's sort of defeat some of the purpose of it. Although I liken Get why coming up to the holidays? There's trying to discourage travel. I mean, I I get that. You know, I gotta get that health message. If they want this people to pause and think that this should be maybe a different type of Thanksgiving. What? What do you guys do? You have plans. You should get together. We can put everything. Yeah, No, Our Halloween got canceled, but not yet Thanksgiving. We're just sort of scaling it back. But we'll see Frank. Thank you for sharing your experience. I wondered about that. Let's hear from you, Penny. You've got another experience to Cove it testing Uh, yeah. Hi..

I think a lot of people were singled on the eight man with a plan here, but you gotta six to one upset with Vincent William. Who went right to the Front for Layer Ravelli? We know Ravelli sources so often utilizing gaito wire speed. I mean especially at Arlington Park they just seem to blow everybody's doors off early on, and it's curtains, the eighth race, hot and heavy, another little upset five to one over, and this was a crazy photo. Dungy was on the lead. And you know going going pretty nicely. Doing it well, and all of a sudden, hot and heavy comes to him in midstretch Kinda goes by Paco Lopez. If you watch, he gives the horse a crack right hit, but then he like sits up, turns almost completely to the right towards hot and heavy, and just really goes with a big right hand, and then gets back down the rioting, and don't g. kind of got back into the bid after that big crack and I mean it was desperately close. It was one of the longer photo weights. I remember where it wasn't a dead heat I mean. It was a few minutes until they finally posted the results, and as it was going on after a couple of minutes. Generally, you kind of think well. Maybe it's a dead heat and I think part of what happens. Is I think they were both the same color? The horses and so you know obviously when there's the differentiation and color. It's a lot easier to tell when you come in. You know who's noses. WHO's but with photo finish technology being? Used that term technology very very loosely. Being what it is, you know sometimes when they're when it's that close in there of a similar color. Sometimes, it's hard to tell. Who is what and what is kind of things so? But a little bit upset when they're in the third race. Reservation to attain got had I say that reserve not attained. It sounds like. Sounds like a clarify, but it's not. Another five to one win. So the sequence kind of cruising along with some some smaller upsets and all of a sudden you get to the feature which was. A little handicap, it was the CO front I believe and diamond. oops, in here is your even money favourite Red Crescent shows up Garner title out of the. Kind of classic old school. Handicap, division type horses, and then math wizard last year's wonder horse for Saffy Joseph that won the Pennsylvania Derby. He showed up in the spots enough at three two one. Let's take a listen back to. Call and they're off Nicole, town picture, perfect beginning for diamond. oops, from the center up on the outside Wentz is put into play early red. Crescent won't be far away back from there. It's color guard, and I have a jet noble dramas out in the center at the back of the field, just to his inside garter entire, and just ahead of both of them, math wizard out of the shooting onto the main track it's. It's went using his quick first gear to clear off lead over diamond hoops. There's now working between horses. Red Crescent is three wide back forth goes color guard on from fifth. That's math wizard down inside for Palko three wide out there. I have a jet I. Paired off at the back. Are Garter and tie and noble drama, twenty three and four for the opening quarter went, says the lead diamond. Hoop says tugging on Luca. League while second red, crescent is a three wide third Palko steadily improving with math wizard in the two path outside of Color Guard then back to either jet I. Tie and noble drama wins. He'll beat everybody with less than three furlongs to go through a forty six second half mile. Whence is still there, but diamond hoop says under are confident ride and is up to take over Red Crescent. GonNa run with him. Math wizard has made a sustained run. He's up on the outside as diamond. Hoop just lost the lead to red. Crescent I've. Driven but he's gaining ground and upset possibility by three quarters in one ten, and into into the drive. Red Crescent comes away with the lead down the center. I ever. Charging hard off the inside and time and hoops, but I have agendas got the jump diamond calling on all its class to try.

"Bobby? A halt of the New York hot list is our first guest of two thousand twenty here on the gate now. The horse that won the Breeders Cup dirt bile beating Omaha beach is spun to run and he will be facing Omaha beach again in the Pegasus World Cup. The first major race of two thousand thousand twenty but maximum security will not be there and code of honor will not be there. Maximum security is waiting for Saudi Arabia. The world's richest race the Saudi Cup in February. It's very tempting to make this a political discussion. I'll only do it to the extent of saying with what's going on in the Middle East right now. How do you think that is going to impact whether trainers bring their horses over for the Saudi Cup and or the Dubai World Cup in March or maybe they take a look at that Pegasus again and say maybe we ought to just stay here that that's a very hard question to answer? Ah It's hard to understand how people feel I will say this. I am confident in saying that the people especially in Dubai. We're ruler of the country behind that I think they're going to bend over backwards to provide security and take care of the park I I would hope the same thing's going to happen in Saudi Arabia race and then just not become a outer tech or anyone but that is a question question that you just can't answer. I think it's very hard. It's an individual decision to a Lotta funny. I understand when people go play a lot of people who have no dog in the adviser to come up with answers of morally questions. And what they're gonNA do when not to you. Gary West was all set to run his voice Independence when it was nine nine billion dollar I. He was happy to take the fourbillion winter. Share the person. Just go to the Middle East but when you cut the first out of nowhere to three billion winter I'll get one point five billion something like that and you have just wants to you know once in a lifetime could easily win ten million dollars and probably turn around that month and win a twelve million dollar right I. It's hard because this is an expensive sport and as much as these people arrested of of money that goes into this so You understand it as of now. I haven't heard anyone saying they're going to change their mind about going. I'm sure people are a little bit nervous but I mean let's be frank. I think anytime you over. There is probably reason to be nervous. So it's just an individual decision and I wouldn't chastize anyone. Whatever they they decide because it feels like them? That's their call. It's not it. I make my own decision on my life. You make your own decision on your own life and I think that's the way it goes. Oh by the way. I think you're under selling the Saudi Cup. I believe the purses twenty million dollars. Well it's ten million the whip you get ten billion but it's it's one that that that's what I'm saying he gary West is looking at it. I will get sent. Don't get out of the home and billion dollars if I say in that term so you can when you look at it now. You basically have to win the Pakistan that in line with at one point I for share of the first compares to the ten million that he will win. Take home for winning the Saudi Cup where he will be the favorite and a one term mounting great definitely. I Dunno betting Saudi Arabia. But I know American pools. He's GonNa behavior and you running for stabbing tons of money. That's a pretty compelling nonetheless in the Pegasus World Cup you do have. Some horses is with some credentials including higher power. The Pacific Classic winner. We mentioned Omaha Beach. roadster for Bob Baffert is aiming toward the Pegasus. And you will be there. How do you see this first? Major race of the year shaping up that force right now in training maximum very doubt after that case to be made then Omaha Aubenas bunch of wrong especially violent eight might be the second and third bout with McKinsey right there with them so when you get fun to run and Omaha Beach I think he got a pretty darn good race.

The site of the world's first million dollar horse race is short on dollars and short on time time to secure them. Welcome back to win the gate in July of two two thousand. Nearly twenty years ago Churchill. Downs home of the Kentucky Derby purchased Arlington Park in Chicago for nearly seventy one million dollars. Arlington's owner Dick Duchossois had closed the track in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight and nine hundred ninety nine saying that he could not compete with other gambling businesses. The opened again in May may of two thousand presumably with the knowledge that a sale was coming at the time. Churchill was in something of an arms race against the stronach group. When it came to buying up tracts the idea was to create networks of tracks for simulcasting and cross promotion of races and Events in nineteen ninety nine Churchill bought calder race course in Miami and Hollywood Park in California and then bought fairgrounds in New Orleans in two thousand and four? This was meant to counter the STRANA group which began its buying spree in nineteen ninety eight with Santa Anita then they added Gulfstream Park in Florida. Both major Maryland tracks Laurel and PIMLICO as well as golden gate fields and Portland Meadows and Oregon stronach versus Churchill. Wasn't exactly the Cold War. But the battle lines had been drawn it it seemed that Churchill was the first to blink Churchill dumped Hollywood park like a hot potato in two thousand five just six years after buying it. Churchill said at the time that California has forsaken racing and its needs reports came from fairgrounds in two thousand thirteen that the turf course was too dangerous juris to race and that the track had been poorly maintained ever since the churchill purchase at the same time Churchill was trying any maneuvering possible to get out of its obligation obligation to operate racing at calder. Eventually the STRANA coned Gulfstream Park worked out a lease agreement to run the calder meet in October and November this year. Two Thousand Twenty is the final year of Churchill's obligation to lease the meat after which it may convert the track into a shipping logistics center. Or something like that.

That's their genesis. That's that's that's the very the basis of their foundation and and yet they just rejected. The entire state of illinois illinois in an industry that is that has thousands of jobs. I'm between them bewildered. Steve i i i don't. I don't know where they're going with this. You know i would ask them to reconsider before it's too late. If that's a possibility you know that this is a privilege village for them. They can take they can be a part of any other licenses they choose to be. We'll we'll support them in that horseman will but give us the opportunity to race again at churchill downs and be competitive with the surrounding states. That's what we're asking for. I would ask i would ask you know. Those people let that all stock in their company. If you love horse racing speak off you know now's the time to do it. Whether people around this country realize it or not sports racing racing is being is under serious serious conflicts right now if it's not medication than it than it's been this kind of stuff these we we all have those of us that enjoy the sport love. The horses wanna be a part of it. It's time for everybody to speak up now.

Whole situation is the while hawthorn in fairmont. Park has been been good actors <hes>. I can't say the same thing for churchill downs at arlington parked. We've had we've had two signals disputes in the game and bill we had an effort to define the horsens person's organization language that came out and we were able to counter and get and get refocused that that the association would get a an appropriate amount to being able to continue to serve the horsemen. It's been one thing after another and now this is the final insult the final nail in the coffin that if we and and and it and i would i would hope that the the nation that the country will come together and understanding. What a serious insult as horse racing. I there's has no the reaction is obvious and and that that's what you know that that's what was particularly alarming about the the way in which the the press release was word yup. Well read between the lines all of you that you know it. It's <hes> i think there's a story there that everybody understands. I won't give my opinion. It's only my opinion but <hes> i.

"<hes> arlington is long sought the trailer bill and there are problems with the city of chicago they they're seeking changes to because of their tax rates and so there will be a trailer villain fall and and i don't know how far churchill will take this keep in mind that we can't have one deal for churchill downs in another deal for hawthorn and fairmont if it's good for hawthorn and fairmont which they're ecstatic about about everything the tax rates the <hes> the tax rates the percentage is the perfect person then favorable all that and so you could not have considerations for just arlington and not have considerations for hopper and fairmont as well and so i. I don't know how i don't again this legislature. They thought of everything they they gave the benefits of privilege of of of a casino full-fledged casino at arlington park. They unilaterally have made a business choice not to engage in that but rather incorporated spent sports betting license to be included luding in their retail business at arlington park at the direct expense of the industry itself unconscionable. I just it's just you. You really just can't conceive of of arlington. Not although i suppose you know what mike we we said this about hollywood and and i just <hes> it's one thing you know what it's one thing thing for certain economic forces in in certain settings when you think about when you think about suffolk and rocking him and you know the the racing in new england. It's it's something else that i think about a facility like arlington not in-flight. There is a difference in my no. I know i know isn't churchill. Chill douse the home of the kentucky derby and the oaks aren't doping frequently has breeders cup aren't they aren't they in a state that that is a proponent of horse racing aren't they. They aren't don't they benefit the industry and kentucky i mean of course they do and so. How can you not want to proliferate that same industry and in the state of illinois. I don't get it. I just don't get it and and the amount of corporate greed that's involved in this is shocking to me now. It shouldn't be i mean. We're all kind of used to it at this point right at the same time. This isn't just about our churchill downs in arlington park. This is about thousands of jobs that were created and lost because of a single decision by outside state interest a state of kentucky hockey doing business in illinois. There's something terribly wrong with that. No doubt ah it the worst part is it just fits a pattern of behavior that you know it just runs counter to the interests of the of the sport at large and it plays right into the refrain <hes> that <hes> that other than derby day that there's very little interest in in the game <hes> <hes> coming from <hes> churchill downs <hes> incorporated <hes> as a as a corporate corporate entity and frequently hear a well. They're beholden to their shareholders. That's an empty breath. That's a very hollow refrain honestly <hes> because there's nothing that says the shareholders can't be served by i <hes> you know having a having a ongoing and enthusiastic or or at the very least neutral approach you don't they don't necessarily have to be <hes> whole hog in but <hes> you know at least veep benign and and laze fare. I mean <hes> it. It seems like there's active an active active effort to to euthanize arlington as an entity it with with this action. Well let me tell you something for ten years.

"I mean that's what to me was even more stunning than than the raw a business decision not to be involved in pursuing the license. I mean that's what is such a a slap in the face and i didn't even know what to what to say to it. They they use does they use the horsemen and the agribusiness component of the horse the industry to get a license and they use the horse front and center in the horsemen do that and then when they got what they wanted. They shot the horse right between the eyes believable. What what are what are the courses. Have i rather than just <hes> nash teeth breath over this. What what are the next steps and i did see the the you sent me the daily herald <hes> piece that <hes> mister duchess wa ah basically who who is a major component of of of the churchill <hes> business listen overall <hes> corporately. He says that this circumstance is not written in stone isn't a negotiating she aiding ploy to to reopen the way in which the legislation is written well here it would be speculation on my part and self all all i can say. Is you know it. It seems indicate that <hes> now i will say that <hes> they missed the deadline for for a placeholder applications for their licensed and as a result of that it's a matter of law that they had they had august twenty seven so make application for a license having having missed that application date right now current law in the game in ville doesn't give them that opportunity to reapplied and renegotiate so i don't know how they overcome that because they will have certain opposition from existing casinos and stakeholders ellen i subject to change but this one's gonna be complicated very much so and and is there you know having having not really delved into when we when we spoke <hes> <hes> two months ago when the you know what what felt like the the very positive news about this opportunity when it i broke. It really didn't go into too much detail. I is there other than what the provisions were and what it opened the door <hes> toward for you know for the breeders and and for the racing operators for the potential for a new chicago land the end area harness track but what what provisions are there any provision in here for for arlington. Should there not be any any gaming. I mean is there. Some is there some funding that would basically essentially keep arlington arlington on some sort of level footing mike <hes> for for purse accounts i mean is there something along those lines and that is there potential for the carries to you know to somehow get involved with with arlington or i mean is there some way to they do what was done in kentucky where for instance kentucky downs was helping the turf way and for for a period <hes> speak to that if you can well it with respect to arlington park and and continued efforts by the legislature to enable arlington to go on they gave them the privilege of gaming license initially that gaming license was the only include slots arlington led the effort to include table games. I thought they had no chance to have that happen. Because it's too large of an expansion they legislature and leadership gave them that opportunity to have table games a full blown blowing casino three hundred sixty five days a year with table.
