Ianne Fields Stewart: The Okra Project
"The ogre project is pretty new for most people. Can you give us the Quick Synopsis. Of what they do. Absolutely it's a really great organization that is working to deliver these luxury free delicious nutritious meals to black. Trans folks and it's all prepared by black. Trans Chefs get paid to do that and I love in the interview that she talks about luxury in this idea of taking luxury and making it something that's accessible to the most marginalized people in the community and really excited for us to do this interview with you and Diane. Because you know there's been so many there's been so many stories lately in the media about over the Trans Women specifically dying during pride month and into July. We can't only report transpeople than media. When died we need to celebrate them when they're alive and admit E. N. is such a core thing. So I'm so excited like play her story on this podcast. Should we get to the interview? Yes I am so excited for everyone to hear the conversation we had. To this is Scott and e Enfield Stewart. Here it is. Still. Em thank you so much for joining me for taking the time. I'm just going to jump right in I. Really wanted to sort of learn more about the work that you're doing at the OCHRE project. Can you tell me a little bit about what it is and bring me back to where the ideas started? How did you come up with the idea? I was sitting on a couch in December two, thousand, eighteen in my home eating their ways a masculine person who was part of the organizing meeting and they were talking over me a bit and I really feel like I was being heard. So I put myself on mute and it turned my friend Nyla and I said Hey I have this idea and I had been thinking for a couple of weeks that I want to do something to give back to the Community because I knew that I was going to be going back to a home and family that raised me that I felt comfortable being my complete self with and I knew that that was a privilege that I possessed. So I said tonight you know what if we were to raise money through your fund that you've created, which is glad Trans Solidarity Fund and it's reparations group that is dedicated to shifting funds from the mainstream back into the hands of black transpeople. NYLA thought the idea was great. So we use those funds to pay a chef we worked with me August of Zadie kitchen. The I had the ideal Sunday on Monday a we had a meeting with Maliki Maliki greed. Our hope was raised about like five hundred dollars worked with a couple people. We released the project on a Wednesday and by Friday we had raised six thousand dollars all through individual donations. So we were totally blown away by and made the commitment then and there that you know, will you know run this thing to the wheels fall off and the wheels have now fallen off yet so here we are I'm wondering you know, why do you think there is such a resounding amount of support whicher analysis on that? You know it's interesting. I think that I constantly find myself shocked and puzzled by why and how people believe in the work that we do. It just seems so strange to be a part of something that people are actively saying, Hey, we believe in an Arlington we believe in it, but we want it to continue I think that part of it is that you know it. The idea of taking luxury and making it something that's accessible to the most marginalized people saga. I personally am very committed to interrupting this idea that luxury should be exclusive and rather making luxury something that is available to all people and most importantly to the most marginalized in our community. From you the idea of having you know a black trans. CHEF. Come into your home and cook a healthy home-cooked Pacific meal for you. Unit for black people in particular, the kitchen is such a place of familial lineage. It's a place of community place of love it's it's just were so so many things happen in so much a daily life occurs in the kitchen and so to have that kitchen be filled with someone who looks loves and lives like you as a luxury and a joy and builds community because you're not just having kind of this person who comes in and cooks for you and then leaves, but you're rather creating an experience of community where this person is someone who? Can become community. They can become chosen. Family knows what is possible when someone who looks loves and lives like you chooses you and prioritizes you and says, you are special and you are worthy of receiving this meal and you are worthy of sitting back and relaxing and has someone do for you and I think that that for a community of people who for so long have had to make everything out of nothing I think that's just such a gift and such a beautiful thing to have someone say I will do for you because you're worth it.

CDC delays school reopening guidance
"School officials face an agonising choice in the next few weeks. How, if at all, did they send their kids back to school? To them. It's a decision about public health and about the kids who are closest to them. The president alleges. The decision is really about him. He's urging schools to open and criticizing his own administration's guidelines for opening safely and claiming without evidence that governors in school leaders want to keep schools shut to hurt him. They think it's going to be good for them politically, so they keep the schools close. No way. So we're very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools to get him open District leaders in Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta and many other communities have announced they will keep teaching remotely when school resumes. NPR's Corey Turner has been covering this and joins us now, Corey Good morning. Good morning, Steve. I want to mention that the White House press secretary Kayleigh Mcenany said behind the lectern yesterday. Science should not stand in the way of reopening. Now people mock. That is if she was dismissing science. But in context, she appeared to be arguing that the science supports reopening. That's what she said. But what is the research to actually say? Yeah, That's right. The the science suggests that kid's generally don't get very sick from Cove in 19 so the administration is not far on that one. But it is less clear how easily kids spread it, especially if they're clustered in schools. But we have to remember that the realist you here is that many states are right now seeing substantial community spread of the disease, and the science is not clear that reopening schools in that context is smart or safe. As for that CDC guidance you mentioned Steve, our colleague, Franco Ordo. Nia's reported last night that the agency is going to delay some new school reopening documents, although it's a little confusing here because CDC has said these documents are not a revision or a softening of the old guidance that President Trump doesn't like, just sort of an elaboration. Well, that's right. Because the president criticized the guidelines to toughen. The CDC essentially said Too bad the science is what it is these guidelines so what would make the guidelines contentious? I mean, some of them are really tough having kids where face coverings, staggering school schedules, But maybe the hardest is keeping kids six feet apart in the classroom, you know, do the math to do that you a have to divide kids into smaller classroom groups. B. Find more classroom space and see find more teachers on that stuff, And that's why some places like New York City say. They're going to have to do a hybrid schedule, bringing some kids in some of the time What our various school superintendents saying as they make these decisions, So they're saying that you know, in spite of President Trump trying to sideline the CDC, they're still very much working with and listening to local, state and federal public health officials and Levet. She heads the savanna Chatham County public schools in Georgia. She told me she's constantly checking in with the head of her public health department and looking over daily infection data for her community. Every day and look at the numbers and I'm like, Please, Please let him go down. Please let him go down and they're not going down. Which is why Levet says her hardest day in this pandemic was not when Georgia closed her school's back in March. I was just last week when looking at the numbers, she decided there was just no way for her to fully reopen at roughly the same time is when President Trump began his campaign to pressure school leaders into quickly reopening Accusing them of not doing what's best for kids. Anyone out there who's questioning whether not educated or at home and not doing the work that I young people need us to be doing the wrong. That's Louvel Brown, He's head of the Ithaca City School district in Ithaca, New York, were working even more now, and we can't wait to get these babies back in our spaces. Superintendents do at least share President Trump's sense of urgency. It is better. To have kids back in school every day. Paul Imhoff is the superintendent of Upper Arlington schools near Columbus, Ohio. All of us want that all of us are anxious for that. But then in half pauses as soon as it's safe, Michael Ina hosta who runs the Dallas Independent School District puts it this way. Sometimes parents forgive us if we commit educational malpractice. They will never forgive us if we let something happen to their Children, So what does it mean to open schools safely? Many school leaders are following. CDC is recommendation to space desks six feet apart, and Brown says that's forcing him to get creative will use everyone about spaces. We hope to be able to get outside and you those faces as well. But I still don't think we can get all of our young people in school at the same time in Dallas. Michael in a hostess says. We think we can have a pretty safe learning about him. But we're gonna have mask We're goingto have face shields. We're going to have a Plexiglas in the classroom. The plexiglass. He's Says, helps him fit more students into each classroom. Even with that, though, Dallas County is seeing substantial community spread of the disease. So in a hostess says he wants to delay the start of school by several weeks. Chad guest in the head of the Phoenix Union High School District, says this pandemic is forcing educators to become epidemiologists. We were spending so much time studying Respiratory droplets and measuring classrooms and how many kids fit on a bus and how to transition thousands of kids between periods that we lost track of the core of our work. And that core guest in says is teaching and learning. So Steve with infection rates skyrocketing in Arizona to guest in recently announced that for now, at least all of his students are going to keep learning remotely. And that way, he says he and his staff Khun Get back to focusing on you know how to be a great school. Well, sounds like the bottom line is that many schools maybe even most schools will not open on time in August of the start of September. At least not fully know. I think there's just too much uncertainty, especially with infection rates rising again in so many places. It's also worth noting, though, that several recent national polls show a majority of parents Really opposed schools rushing to reopen two parents are on the side of schools. In many places. I even heard from the superintendent in Ithaca, where infection rates are pretty low, Super intown Superintendent Brown told me. You know the key to everyone being able to return to school there. Really boils down to one word, vaccine them. And if you have different schools, making different decisions in different areas, you have parents looking around and saying, Wait a minute. What are we supposed to do here and wanting to be conscious with their own kids, right? Absolutely. I mean, it gets back to the same old line I've heard every day since covering schools, which is their controlled locally. Cory, Thanks for your work. Thank you. Steve, NPR's education

to ask him one how we enjoy the Mavericks game last night he he went to that with fish so I'm interested to hear how that went but it is senior bowl week and there's a lot to get into with dad will Maclay caught up with the media out at the senior bowl and this is this is a rarity in a woman place since he's been with the cowboys it's it's been chasing year it Hey it's relatively been the same coaching staff they know exactly what they're looking for and often times we've complained about some of the tendencies that rod Marinelli and and the defensive staff like and don't like it does appear there's going to be some differences this year yeah you are not kidding especially on the defensive side of the ball where the the the the the size of the linemen you know that was the one thing with rod Marinelli that was really frustrating with he's scheme with the with the tiny interior linemen that seems like it's going to change and in the secondary the the way that Christians shard taught them to really play the man instead of a ball and I think that had something to do with the lack of turnovers and then that just the general more or more aggressiveness more I'd be more multiple on defense disguising your coverage you're gonna have to have higher football like you guys if you want to be more multiple on defense and not so vanillin play the same coverages and do the same little stands on the defensive line and every time I know they're probably in be blitzing more they're gonna be changing up the front seven on a play to play basis disguising their coverages then I can be married to one or two coverages like they have been in the past so I think you're gonna see a special on the defensive side of the ball a completely different defense and that's what excites me most yeah I'm thrilled about it now will just start at the top of the cat fifty one he read sh and in terms of the new regime and what players they're looking for how is that different note will Maclay dives into that I don't think it changes were were always looking for better football players there might be some tweaks on things that were looking for but at the end of the day is Jerry said the other day we organizationally set the standard for what we're looking for player wives and we got coaches that will be included in the right spot so bit of engineer Hansard there for woman claiming of course you are looking for just good football players in general but just a little tweaks like the tweaks is what we're interested what are the tweaks what are the differences yeah how what it what are the differences and I think ultimately the Hey they they want to have a a scheme that they can tailored to their players and that's what everybody wants but there's got to be some sort of proto type that they're going forward and that's going to be the big question is you know how what's the influence of the coaching staff it seems like they're really trying to keep a good separation of powers at this point where the coaching staff is not even in attendance in mobile they'll still get to study the senior bowl tape because the the technology now you can practically be be at the senior bowl without actually being at the senior bowl but you're letting the scouts do the hands on work out there in mobile while the coaching staff stays back so that's a that's a good sign there but I do wonder what the influences at some point they're going to come back in the coaching staff my goals and like I like my guys this bigger this faster will or what have you and that just sort of they're not gonna give you that you're just gonna get to see it over you know over free agency over the draft and then you'll kind of get a feel or okay maybe this is that the type of guy they're looking for each position and I think that's a great point you bring up because you're my McCarthy's not there the senior bowl and chase here was was more hands on in that regard grew up his father was a scout the yachtsman joined it when it came to scouting the players and gain studying that when it came to the draft Mike McCarthy is much more I'm gonna put that trust and faith into the scouting department and the people would be in in that role he did with Ted Thompson in Green Bay and he's doing it here in Dallas with Wilma place let's jump down to I believe it's got fifty seven here rage about the difference in dynamics of McCarthy doesn't want to have a bigger role in personnel I think every coach and every coach know something about players they have a feel for what they're looking for and our process is inclusive and we want to get everybody together here everybody's opinion at the end of the day Jerry makes a decision but coaches have input the scout seven but that's why we feel like our process is very good because anybody that's.

Gay Joe Louis Cadavers who else's Berry Theater Williams James Chappie the air force's first four star general of color and we have sex in twenty seven and many people aren't aware of section twenty seven because no one ever talks about its cemetery look into one of their programs you may see something here in a very small print but no one ever go through the answer's twenty seven even if you were to take a guided tour through December centenary you know the the tour guys the bus drivers they talk about every other partners cemetery except twenty seven so I I don't know they don't talk about twenty seven maybe a bus driver the tour guides are trained maybe they choose not to talk about it but you know the photographer is tab is my duty to talk about those stories that often don't be told and I throw instance Williams Christmas Christmas I'm sorry I buried at the cemetery and he was black man he was the first one bury their yes sir and many you don't know that so is it so so the section twenty-seven it's a it's a section where it's primarily of not all black people are people of color right that are in that that are buried and laid to rest in that section and like you said is notable names that are that are in there but part of the issue that you to shine a light on was the fact that tours etc just kind of blow right by that why do you think that is why are people just like why why are the historians in Tour Guides Etcetera talking about the significance of section twenty seven get his mind now I don't know what those guys are gang or or or the reasoning for not talking about it and I wish they would talk about it but until they do I hope that this story and this half warm air to educate more people about the importance second twenty seven and hopefully spark conversations yeah yeah well tell me dive into the project itself so this wasn't it wasn't like a day you just decided to go out there and take some pictures this happened over a period of time take me take me through the project with and how you came up with the idea and what was the cause you know as as a photojournalist photographer you get an idea and you have to do it so from that wait all the way through to you ready to show people what was that process well I would go to the cemetery several times a year our oh on Veterans Day Memorial Day and Christmas so for Veterans Day Memorial Day soldiers lay flags on all of the the graves and for Christmas they laid wreaths and One thing I noticed no one really knew about twenty seven elect you have young soldiers that were assigned to guard which is the army unit that maintains the cemetery and I will have black soldiers and they would not now that the session that they were standing in is you know was the burial ground for black soldiers pave the way for soldiers like myself than in oc and it was last year president trump decided to go to the Cemetery Memorial Day and I notice the mass of the people one over two cents you Scott the section where the to`must but they went over no no soldier and sex twenty seven I think I may have encountered like six people at Entire Day met a couple from North Carolina. about twenty seven but then there were say four staff members of the cemetery three security guards that were for the cemetery like maybe one or two military police officers and they were all people colored so that day the only people that I saw on Saturday cemetery of black people and they were working take it was it was like a big history lesson because the security guards new was a regarding but the young african-american active duty soldier he didn't know but once I told them it was it was a maze and I could see like the honor and dignity that he had he knew what he was guarding right there so you know I wonder if you haven't hit on something that's that is is a longer project and maybe just section any seven because you and I both know that the White House itself was built by slaves right and the Washington Monument and a lot of the bedroom the Capitol Yeah the allowed bedrock that is Washington yeah the world and so maybe that's a bigger story you know have you considered expanding out and telling that story as well about you know black people and their contribution to starting with the nation's capital okay stores but without funding it makes those projects here possible you want to tell you passionate work but you also have a habit of eating right cup of coffee every now world in a city like DC which has its share of drama being the nation's capital or not it has its share of drama of violence and you know you got your politics you got violence and this is just me on the on the west coast looking in I can't imagine what it's like being on the inside of they may show those kinds of shots but normally you're like the only person of color male dominance aided industry you you may find some his day I mean everyone knows who I am we speak but there's only maybe

"Do they ever have to ask? It's soc. It's so shocking to everyone, again because most people will never see it. You can on YouTube. I mean, judge judging by the number of YouTube videos, PR fascinated by strew. But most you'll never say so, so shocking if you're just sitting there and you see that soldier walking back and forth back and forth back and forth. All the sudden he steps off in brandishes, his weapons and begins in a in a very loud, command voice, erecting than to my someone to maintain an atmosphere. Silence in respect at very quickly stops the problem. But before we go, there's a good chance that this book sacred duty will inspire some Americans to visit Arlington next time there in Washington. What would you want them to think about as they stroll those hollowed ground? I would encourage them to, to think about all of those Americans who lay in that sacred ground who gave their life, and it does go back to the revolutionary war before, you know, this became a national cemetery in eighteen sixty four but soldiers from all the pre nations previous wars have been disinterred at various points in our history, and reinterred. There. And thinking about the sacrifice they made and what Arlington means to us as a nation, this nation is worth the fighting for. And if it wasn't for the soldiers sailors, airmen, the marines, coast guardsmen, who rest peacefully in Arlington, as symbolic of all of our national cemeteries around the country and overseas, we wouldn't be able to live in safety and freedom and honor their sacrifice I encourage all your visitors to make a pilgrimage to Arlington at some point. Yeah. Well, again, the book is called sacred duty a soldiers tour at Arlington National Cemetery. Senator Tom cotton. Thank you for your service, and thanks for talking with me. Thank you so much. Thanks again. To Senator Tom cotton for coming on the podcast or his book, sacred duty, a soldiers tour at Arlington National Cemetery on Amazon audible, or wherever books are sold and follow him on.

"Might have a very senior noncommissioned officer or even Colonel overseeing them at the old guard have a corporal or sergeant. Then we break out we get on buses. We go into the funerals. You get leave an hour before every funeral begins usually get to the side at least forty five minutes for each begins, even though we may have performed these funerals hundreds of times. We do a talk through her soul before each general, and in Arlington cemetery Representative, which is really kind of the key link between the family and a cemetery and the old guard comes up about ten or fifteen minutes prior to brief us on, if there's an unusual casket may be difficult to carry or an oddly shaped earn what the family situations like, how big they are, you know, if there's any tensions in the family, then we also link up with some of the adjacent units that supported the funerals in the cemetery. Like the us army band the case on platoon, which has the horses that pull horse-drawn case on and then only. Then at that point, you know on the hour as the funeral began after all this reparations have gone into it as you point out in the book, the old guard has to remain professional and stoic when they're performing a funeral yet you know, most of us a funeral is already a pretty heart rending event. Plus, you're honoring a fallen hero. And you have the military band playing hymns and the twenty one gun salute and all of these poignant traditions, that we associate with an Arlington funeral. Is it hard not to get a motion? Well, the old guard trains, all of its soldiers from the earliest days to maintain what we call ceremonial composure precisely for that reason, because when you see families morning at the gravesite, especially if it's a young soldier who was killed in action, just a few days earlier might have a widow or widower young children who may not fully understand what's happening. Parents who are dealing with the loss of a child. Of course, it's challenging to maintain one's composure, especially for those of us who had lost friends, or soldiers in combat or. Or who were just back from overseas as well. But the old guard drills into its soldiers very early, and they internalize that message to the drilling and stop over time that our, our role in the cemeteries, not to grave as grievous as the situation and circumstances may be our role is to honor its the families part to grave and our job is to ensure that we pay honor to them into their grieving process. So even in the hardest moments when as officer in charge, you take that folded flag from the casket team and approach the next of kin and take a knee and say the condolences to those family members it's the highest priority of an old guard soldier to maintain ceremonial composure. That's one reason as I write and sacred duty that we don't know that much about the deceased soldiers whom were laying to rest. Yeah. Unusual. But certain detachment most people go to funerals. Obviously of people, I know very well, fair members and good friends, so they already know them very well. Obviously, when we're performing twenty two. Thirty funerals. A day from veterans all across America old guard. Soldiers can't know them. And some of that is historical, you know, the cemetery goes way back before the internet. So possible get obituaries to Washington in those days with that degree of frequency and volume. Some of its administrative the cemetery has great professional staff, but they are they worked very, hard, very long days, trying to put together, flawless obituaries would be a challenge for them,.

"Uniform, especially after you've been out in the rain or the snow out in summer heat, and sweated through it, but how one tomb sentinel summed it up pretty well. He had been getting rained on which more or less ruins your uniform. You have to start over from scratch spend several hours in this press machines and he said of the three unknowns on that plaza. They didn't give it just give up their lives for our nation to give their identities. When you think of that kind of sacrifice, what sacrifice is it to us to lose a night of sleep? So can represent them in the best way possible. Certainly what kind of training do you undergo in the old guard zooming that must be pretty right? And sacred is that right? And sacred duty. It's an unusual unit because it does get some of the very finest soldiers in the army. Whether they're new privates, or battle-hardened officers and sergeants yet, when everyone gets to the elgar again, whether they're private or the new regimental commander. They don't know at all how to perform their mission. I mean, that's very unusual in the army, you know, when you take over say, a normal, infantry regiment a place like Fort Campbell, or Fort Bragg. You've held every job in officer has in that regiment up to that position. You know, exactly, you know exactly what an iftar regiment does not the case at the old guard as I write and sacred duty that change a command for regimental commanders, the new commander Colonel Jim to at had never served in the old guard before. So he was at the old guard for two to three months, performing, all of the administrative and other leadership responsibilities of regimental commander, but not performing ceremonies because he himself had to go through the training that I did as young Lieutenant or that new privates do as well. So it takes about two to three months to learn how to prepare your uniform to March in the old. Guard style. If you're part of a small team for funerals to do things, like fold a flag, and exactly one minute and fifty five seconds. Or if you're part of firing party to fire with six other soldiers and make seven rifles crack as one that training to two to three out two to three months, and then there's constant refresher training and retraining practicing in the morning before funerals aft at the end of the day during refer refresher training, if there's just the slightest detail that was off begin. It's all designed to ensure that the family in a moment of grief also has a space to grieve and they're not distracted. Or they don't see any small mistake, no matter how small it might be the standard for every single funeral. No matter how big it is no matter how distinguished or how humble the deceit is, is the standard of perfection. Now what goes into an Arlington funeral? Walk us through that from start to finish, and it starts blowing before the mourners arrive. Right. Yeah. For the L guard it starts well. There's all that practice and rehearsal, that goes in this companies today, typically spend two very four weeks performing funerals. One, one of those weeks will be fully devoted all of its personnel and other week. It'll be the backup company, but it still has to provide a lot of personnel to the primary company. But when you're in the primary funeral week it's a very long week it's a very full week. You show up first thing in the morning usually before sunlight. The leaders will go out in a van to recon the gravesites. Sure there's no surprises, like a down tree, which Arlington has today because of storms last week or a particularly difficult carry the casket team up a hill or down a hill. So there's no surprises. In the last minute at the gravesite then you go back you spend the morning doing final touch up on your uniform. There's a final checking on because all the teams are operating a decentralized fashion. There may be three or four funerals going on at any given moment and a lot of those funerals are not going to have a senior leader in charge of, and they're going to have junior leaders, which is. Reflects the how much responsibility young soldiers have at the old guard missions that at other units might have a very senior noncommissioned officer or even Colonel overseeing them at the old guard have a corporal or sergeant. Then we break out we get on buses. We go into the funerals. You get leave an hour before every funeral begins usually get to the side at least forty five minutes for each begins, even though we may have performed these funerals hundreds of times. We do a talk through.

"I realize he won the secretary at Arlington last year at ten for longs, but the way that he did he pop back to his left lead at the end of the race is going to be breaking from post eleven. So that's that's no bargain. He is probably the horse to beat in here, but at the same time, do wonder if this distance or some of these other horses a little bit better suited for ten than he is now, having said that this older division on turf has been a little bit of a dumpster fire recently and maybe Oscar performances to kind of horse that all of a sudden can show up and say, this is my division. Now you guys are all running for second. And third, we'll find out on Saturday. I think he's a prime time player and I'm going to absolute use him in any sort of multi-race wagers the Chad that I am most interested in exits the Manhattan. We're in take a look at that stretch run right now. And I believe Robert Bruce had not been bounced around and had some clean run. I think he probably threatens to win that race. You see him finish as well as he does, and I understand spring quality is in this race, and I think spring quality has a punch as well. I think Robert, Bruce, I liked him going into the Manhattan. I like him coming into a race like this. He's I think he has a little bit more versatility than we saw that most recent start thinking can be a little bit closer. He's probably going to be in that sort of mid pack range, three links off of it. Maybe I just I believe if he had not been bounced around between horses and in tight down the lane, if he was able to get into the clear and really fire, I think he would threaten to win that race. I think it was a better race than it looks on paper for him. And the other piece that you've got to factor in initially, I was torn on the Manhattan. I said, know you got a bunch of horses in total blanket. How good can the race be? Well, you've had four one hundred plus buyers exit that race. It's come comeback pretty live in pretty strong, Robert. Bruce to me, that's the horse that I want. He is going to be picking this ROY. Ace, and I think he's got a big chance in here. There are other horses though that I think you have to consider Deauville. I've never been a big fan of his, but I can understand anyone that looks at him and says that he's a legitimate threat in a race like this for aid. No Bryan Ryan more. I kind of want to be against him money multiplier. You got to be concerned a little bit about the ground if there is any sort of is that really going to be to his liking? I know Chad is is sort of rerouted him in the past due to ground conditions, find out what you get on Saturday. At Arlington. You've got other interesting runners though century dream, I think of all the Europeans coming over. He's the one that I'm most interested in. I thought he ran just finding that Queen into starts back. I understand. Maybe he got a little bit flattened out down at the end. Keep in mind. It's a mile a straight mile over Ascott here. I think this mile and a quarter, I think there's going to be much more to his liking. It's not nearly as difficult for those horses in Europe. You're milers can probably get out to a mile in eight mile and a quarter over here. Pretty comfortably. The Lasix go on, you get William Buick was one of the. Riders in the world thing century dream of the horses coming over. He's the one that I would probably be most interested in can go few other ways as well visit. I'm hopeful they're going to send him Saratoga because I think he's better off in a miles opposed to a mile quarter. If he shows up here, I'm going to be against him. If he goes in the four star, Dave, I think I have to take him seriously. Absolutely. No question about it. But as far as the pick is concerned is few horses that you gotta use backups spring qualities backup? Probably, but most of my eggs are in the Robert, Bruce Alman are basket..
