"Do It I think it's because I've. Always had the best horse maybe. If you have the best usually win it and I've been fortunate to have the best tour. And I brought him up to it. You know when I was training quarter horses, we would And that's why wait look was successful. You learn to bring these horses up. We've had these trials you be like. You know the. Ten thousands and they'd have five hundred horses were. Looking for those ten spot? So you you bring them along you wanted to run in the trials but not really enough that's enough to qualify and then bring them back a week later. So you learn how to sort of bring him up like this preferences how you do so much with them. And then have them run their really their best race but But I I think a lot of it. Just happens. It's nothing you know get the right horse. Everything's gotTa go right. this year looked like looked it looked really look good in the spring and then just everything just you know those horses got hurt the doll, Charlotte and. They look so strong. I would had charlotte the doll thousand words authentic. I. Was coming in. Really loaded like never. So loaded, you know but Might say loaded for me but for but when I came in with justify and. storm and American Farrell I mean. Those are you know I knew I had like superior superior horses they're. So, let's talk about the two that you're GonNa Saddle on Saturday thousand words and authentic in what ways do they give you the confidence that they are Derby type horses. Are Two different types of horses I think thousand words. Is the horse. We call him the other bathroom. The other one that you never know my jump up and win He's been steady he he had a low very it's a couple of bad raises got sour. And It looks like he's doing really well, I think you'll get the of quarter. He has had things his way. He drew well, I. Like his post a panic is quicker of the two I. Don't like his post I I didn't want to be out there wanted to be like. Near the middle somewhere and so he's going to have to. Probably. Use a little bit early you know from that post but they're both training really well but when when you have a horse his law and there that's just mature just doing everything right and you know you know you you know that. You're with and. You know you look at your within A. Elaine through two of him, and so you gotTa make that up somewhere in the race and you need racing luck and everything's gotta go. Well, this we get you know one bad break you're out of it when stumbled whatever. if they go to the gate if they get. If they don't handle the paddock and and the thing this year is you know my? Both of my horses like horse thousand words you know they they don't like crowds and so there's no crowds there. So that's GonNa be a better benefit. A lot of horses with big crowds there 'cause that's half the battle is them. Handling the crowds and I remember American Pharaoh he hit trouble the with the crowds and after that he was he was fine but He almost got beat nervy. Yeah you know you talk about the the lack of crowds and there will be no fans at the Derby this year it it's also going to be kind of a surreal walkover from the barn to the paddock, and that's one of the great walks in all the sports I always say Bob it's like I can imagine it's like walking up the eighteen th fairway at Augusta national on Sunday After you you've taken the lead and you're GONNA win the masters it's describe what that walk is typically like and how it might be completely different this year. Went I think they'll walk I used to walk us to be better. Until they, they changed it a you know a few years back they changed to where they would when they started gathering all the horses together. And all the people together and it was sort of. It was I. It's it's I didn't like to walk. You know it's too many people in I. liked it when you walk when the horses went up to the paddock. and. You would walk with your group and and then after that, they changed that. Hasn't been the same I like it when the old days it used to be able to walk but it it's fun if you. If you've done it for the first time I remember the first time I did it. I walked with unbridled song and Kevin Near we were in same barn we walked up together. I remember I had my brothers with me and we're walking up there and And it was really I felt like I was walking to the OK corral you know. You felt that there was just a few of us there and I remember walking up silver charm with Bob Lewis. And he was so excited and we're walking there and I remember we it was cold. It was like it was pretty chilly that day. And In Several charm he's just walking out there like Pulpit with was way ahead of us. And he was all prancing jumping up and down and he was all lathered up and I mean it was like you could tell you know he was not the way you want to see your horse You, know go the Tadic and And it was amazing. A silver charm. He was cool. Calm collected. Walked in there dislike Just a pro you know in so And that was it was a great feeling but Kevin. The air you know always said that I always thought that was the worst loss ever had because I never thought I would ever get back to the Derby I thought maybe. That was my chance. I missed. You know got beat A. just a dirty beat Roy in the wire like that and I thought I'd won it. And it it. You know it took me a year to get over until when it was it was fortunate to win silver charm so but You know those when you get beat like that. I'd rather get beat Elaine or you know. TWO LANES GET BEAT A. Especially when you have it and it's just taken away from me right the end. Visiting with Hall of Fame Trainer Bob Bachelorette on trainer talk presented by Phasing Tipton Bobby said you don't typically like to look back you like to look ahead. So let's do that. You're one behind. Ben Jones for all time Derby wins you have five he has six a win Saturday and equal that mark you're a competitive guy obviously or you wouldn't be in the position you're in how badly to you wanna see your name equaling Ben Jones at the top of that list. It's something that I really don't think about I hear it all the time you know Yeah. It's it's almost like it's like it's like a jinx you know like. That's why I hate when when, when they say the jockey is, is one win away from a milestone. and. and. It takes them like thirty days to get it. You know in instead of they would have gotten there that they haven't been thinking about it. So it I mean I. It's something to be proud of all my winds but. I, I like to win the races for the clients I want them I wish I every client that I trained for good steal. What it? To Win The Kentucky Derby to watch horse. You know being. Front At the eightfold sixteen poll and they hit the wire..

"Second he was between the two and the seventeenth hole. And I was sitting there with Jerry Gary. Stevens and prints automated. And I wanted to the prince wanted to to and. Gary insisted on the seventeen 'cause he wanted to write him like thunder. Gulch who's GonNa stay outside and? And So we took the seventeen. And I remember. We. We went to get interviewed afterwards and the first question forget Jenny Rees. Asked me is Bob. You pick the seventeen bother you that there's never been a winner come out of post seventeen. And I remember answering her. I wouldn't known that. I pick seventeen and And they're still veneman a winner out having. And But It's things like that that you know I I knew I should've stuck with too but you know it was a weird raise. It was track was really fast at breaking track records. I remember I broke track record without allowing philly going six and a half the track was extremely fast. So you know the jockey started writing track sending everything hard and that's what happened. We had connery in there yet. Soccer prayer, he gets smoked away from their. Kandari and and and. Gary wanted to sort of stay close to them and I'll never forget. We came back in and. Point giving with just completely done at the. At the three eighths pole and I just couldn't understand it and later on You know Gary. That's one thing about Gary Stevens. That's what made him so great. Said boss I think he I think to marry I think he wants you let them fall away from there and pick it up i. you know I think that's the way run. He just got caught up Jason and. then. After that you know then he went one the next one and what when he went to Belmont it was just like I was just. It was I was sick. This is. This is the one you know, and maybe I'll never win the triple crown but But you know I've been fortunate to have all these good horses and you know there's been other horses probably could win the Derby that you know. Didn't have good racing luck. dislike Elliott Walden kept running second company in the Derby and then then he beats me triple crown. So you know. Things happen for reasons I've always thought that so I never looked back. Yeah. Well, as you mentioned that's one you'd like to have back and I'm sure that there are others. It's easier to remember the ones that don't win than the ones that do but look you don't get into the hall of fame and train more than three thousand winners without doing things. That are extraordinary and a lot of respect. So if you think about like golfers, we'll talk about the best shot they ever hit and Major League baseball players that the best swing they ever put on a ball that left the Ballpark, whatever it might be what's the best training job that Bob Baffert ever done with any horse? The best training job That's a that's a that's a tough one. I mean there's there there's been so many of them that I've really felt. That I Made Difference I don't know it's hard to say I would say. Like every member. Like. Any anytime you go to. You go across the pond. You know when you go to buy those are tough. Those are it's really to take silver charm over there. And to First Time to do by and and and go through that. Because you have no idea what you're up again and I think all of those Dubai Wins Pretty You know they're really just they're tough. You know and We're supposed to take a good horse but. You know horses like war emblem. He was just a rogue he was tough. And we had to make a lot of adjustments and I made a certain rig for a little lip court for them had stretched and and and I have different writer and we did something different with there and I think it made a big difference with him there. Little light horse. The only way I remember when we bought him like nine, hundred, ninety pounds. And We put the weight on within three weeks. He was up to a thousand seventy. You know he pulled it up, put it on without you know. Trained and without losing weight but I a Lotta horses there It's My my best jobs I think. I was in the corridors business. You know when I was trained quarterhorse bring these horses up to these big races. I like coming off a layoff. I think I think American. Pharaoh. Train them. After. He got beat in the in the Travers, train them up to the reader. Scout. You know really That was You know because he's coming off a be like that. And I almost didn't run in in the cup and he had been doing really well Toronto because they were they were thinking of retiring after you got be at the travelers. In, and there's another one I forgot about that I would love to have that one back. American Farrell he should never got beat In the into travelers but we just. got. Caught. Up In wasn't, GONNA run wasn't around I. Wasn't GonNa Rent I just didn't really prepare for it and when I got there we were just. A little bit overwhelmed with with everything that went on and I got them the day before you know we changed everything up and. and. He he he basically went way to fascinate before listen do it. I've never been overwhelming my life when I took him up there to Gallup when there was like fifteen, twenty, thousand people the grandstand it was crazy. But it was. It was really cool. But it was you know that I think that day was. We'd be ready for it now you know but I talked to your fellow hall of Famer Steve Asmussen last week and Steve's won more races than anybody. But Dale Baird spending credible and I asked him about winning the Kentucky Derby because that's one this just he hasn't been able to get over the hump and he's had seconds and thirds and some really good horses and just can't get past it and as a why is that so difficult to add to your resume and he said, well, it's the it's the premier race in in the world and it's so difficult to try to win this thing but you've done it five times how come you've had so much success in the derby what's what's allowed you to do it?

"I join me on our trainer talk show back five years ago October twenty, ninth two, thousand fourteen. Now, of course, he's been on with me many many times since that date. But that was the last time he appeared on this particular show we sat down together at Santa. Anita's clockers corner just before breeders. Cup. That year and I remember that we visited for a full hour on that show never discussed any of his Kentucky Derby winners as a matter. Of fact, we barely touched on any of his top horses, and as you know, there have been plenty of those over the years. It was all about the early years of Bob's life his career and it was a fascinating visit at that time Bob had settled two, thousand, five, hundred and four winners which included three Derby winners today that total stands at three thousand fifty, one career victories five Kentucky Derby winners two triple crowns under his belt, fifteen breeders, Cup winners, and a multitude of major stakes victories to his credit. Bob. I gotTa tell you man not bad for a kid who grew up on a cattle ranch and no gallus raising chickens and selling eggs to the locals. It's been quite a journey and I never imagined ever was never a dream just. Just sort of fell in place but you know. It's Just fell in love with horses at a young age, my father loved horses and and that's why I. I got involved but because of him. And so he was busy raising Seven children. So I was lucky enough to you know to. Just keep going with it. Yeah. Luckily for us for the sport of thoroughbred racing your. Dad Bill loved horses and was a quarter horse guy had a couple of quarter horse mares. Didn't you tell me that the? The name of the First Horse that your dad had. There was baffert's Heller is that right? Yeah. His actually the first torch that he bred his name was baffert ballots. All O t and he's sent him to a trainer in Laredo Texas. I remember the horse went raise. There was a wind picture from Laredo and the second horses BAFFERT's ballot. He raised them there. There was a farm in Patagonia, which is like twenty minutes from Nogales. and. They stood a horse called Parker's trouble. He was an old quarter horse I think he's in the hall of fame for the steel full horse and he. And he read is marriage till and he got his is race horses and Back for Taylor I think he went a couple of raises their at Sonora. Arizona. Maybe, relate Oh and then we made a saddle horse out of them and and that's the thing that I learned how to ride on and so. He was tough. He was a he was a he was a quirky horse and every time I got on him I was like I wanted to say, I, was about twelve thirteen years old and he would He would try to bug me off. He knew when I was on I was sort of scared of him and it took me about six months until I family. You know. was able to to handle them. You know but I learned so much from that horse, he was beautiful horses and When you know. I'll never forget that that's how I learned everything about him and I remember letting them when I was gal around. I. Let him run one time and wow, would they were there so fast quarterhorse extremely fast you know and so it was quite quite experience. Yeah it's amazing that you know here you are. You grow up around quarter horses you make a living training quarter horses you make the Segue to thoroughbreds and all of a sudden you're training horses to go a mile and a quarter mile and a half in the Belmont stakes and having success at that level to how much different is it Bob Training a horse to sprint a quarter horse and then transitioning over to training courses like this to go you know the the marathon distances if you will. It was actually it it it it didn't happen overnight. It took me about a year to sort of figure it out Corridors has you know once you get him fit you get him running You don't have to train them as much. They don't. They don't go to the track every day. I. Would Gallop them like once every other day. Maybe, they'd go like when you know mile like five, eight, hundred Mile Gallop and. And we'd raise probably about every two weeks or something like that and want to get him running those trials. You rented trials five weeks part. You know you don't you don't do much in between, but they have to be really sounds unhealthy because courses you know the whole key is the break. And if they're not really if they don't break, then forget it you're gonNA, you're gonNA, get nothing you know and so they have to be they have to be really a fine line there has to be really sure. That they have to break well, and there's a lot of gates involved and you know make sure they stand up in there and that's why I've been a real with thoroughbreds. You. Know I'm really worried about the gate I do a lot of gates going I wanNa make sure my horses or behave themselves and they don't behave themselves in there. Really you know really bothers me but you want them to break and start so important. Visiting the hall of fame. Trainer. Bob. Baffert here on trainer talk presented by facing Tipton. Bob One when we did sit down at Santa. Anita. Five years ago you hadn't won a triple crown that you've now done that twice and I mentioned the Breeders Cup victories to your credit now. But there have been other moments. A Horse's like arrogate come to mind his tackler run that he had You know you're around game winner and and his special run that there were so many good horses that you've been part of Mackenzie recently when you describe what these past five years have been like for you and you talk to people that you're close with how do you do it? Well I mean it's I don't think about it too much. I guess you know every different day and I I don't really. Look back on anything. I just keep going like it's a new day. And so that's how I deal with it and You. Know I probably think I don't think about the winners as much as I I think I've got the ones that got away you know and what could I have done differently like when I have a good horse and he gets beaten a big race. beat myself up. What could I have done differently the. Why didn't he run his race? You know and that's the that's the thing I think about. What big race would you like to have back if you could do it over again I would love to have had the. Point given race back in Derby That would sorta got away from us like they have that one back. There's a lot of. Kevin Near. You know I mean looking at lucky that that race did the whole just got us. There you know and so you know a lot of 'em got away 'cause just bad racing but But the I think the point given raise really That's the one that really I thought I was so disappointed because they knew he had triple crown written all over him I just needed to get the first one that was overconfident. Andy that's used to pick our own our own spots are postition and I remember. They didn't shuffle the cards and they were pulling them out and that was the last one they pulled out. I think it was for TV or something but I remember right in order they were coming right in order like the cutting them in half. Happy. Just you know and so. He was the last one drawn and they would be it was between..

And then you have to. Give Him us to how every trainer feeds differently. You know and. And That was the only thing he was very finicky about the way he ate Like.

Poor Gehring Mary what they were going to just hit him like. was tough. You know so Pretty upset and destroy about the whole thing. You know so So he SAR- waited and. And he showed up. You know probably forty five later. My friends asked me for rides to the pizza place. Your friends ask you the take. Possibly the best horse in the world is a favor. Obviously. You were a fan of his going before he came into the barn. Did you kind of have once you got them in and you were able to get an assessment. Did you kind of put together a second-half plan for him off of that Saudi effort? What I wanted to see what he eat letting. What he was like you know, get to know the horse and. You know he trained differently I. Remember his works like. Given these miles and and let them work. They'll ask you know just weird. You know different types of you know. Every trainer has their own style. Was Style on on that horse, and you know so I never. You know I didn't have any blueprint ANA. Marie didn't ask any questions you know. I just got the horse like hey got the horse. He's naked here. Start from scratch and and start working out and but he's i. mean he's done everything right I. He's A. Then he here, my. Of Several charm Lazy Sorta Lazy in the Mornings gotTa make sure you have to work with company, and so But he's you know he doesn't get tired he he's built like a bull. And And so but I mean he just. You know he's been working working really well, and I'm just. I'm like everybody else I when he comes out of the gate I'm I'm like? I don't get embarrassed here. You know 'cause he's he's. He's A. He's this great horse in these running and and You know the closer. I get to the race I get to leak and badly I. See Week Ago Yeah. We're ready to go, and then it gets close I dunno man you know, but he needs to get away from the gate and Renan's race, but he's he's a class horse and so. I think he's fit enough that for. Sixteen. Between the Kentucky Derby controversy last year. Around the his former trainer. As if poor, maximum security hadn't been through enough, they had postpone the the race on them last week with the covert one thousand nine outbreak. You said you were happy. More doubts as you get further away. That must have. That must have driven you a little crazy. Having postponed in wait another week. Well, yeah, mean you're getting close. And all of a sudden jockey gets Cova. going. Gets cloud. Of You know I think the clouds following him and on it. So but it was one of those things where it wasn't that big a deal. You know it's like. When all the writers got the Kobe Ed! We would've been stuck with I. Don't know what kind of a jockey colony would have been left with. You know it was a good move to. Get everybody you know. At least they all had it and they were all exposed to. At least they don't have to worry about that. The rest of the the made but Yeah that one week been really affect them at. We're we're fine. So able to do is going to ride him for the first time and originally last week. Mike Smith was taking care of business. View out here, on the east, coast at Monmouth would authentic taking down the Haskell. They postponed the race a week and able to the is backboard. Mike's Riding Axeman for you in the San Diego. was there ever? A point where you.

Suite, bigger standpoint, and just an on-track performance standpoint. She didn't really better as a three year old. She was so darn good as a two year old that she was still a dominator competition. and It's not GONNA be easy. Yea, a horse, and you know I'm just sort of laying different scenario.

"I'm guessing you've heard of the Kentucky Derby Abi to this race that's run usually early in May we haven't yet talked about the Kentucky Derby this year but that's about to change as we're finally starting to get into rounds of prep races that will winnow the field down to twenty for the run for the roses on May the second so to help us do that. We bring in voice. We haven't heard on this show for too long and and that's Jonathan Listener who writes for horse racing nation. Welcome back Jonathan. So before we get into a few specific horses. WHO's impressed you the most so far on the triple triple crown trail? I think Dennis moment to start the list. Dentists moment strikes to lead right at the top of the stretch at Delta. Two lanes lead our three lately for the final final furlong. Dennis this moment with five length lead scabbard with clear sailing up the second but Dennis moment kicks off the road at the Kentucky Derby in a big way. He barely moved a muscle. That we we have it. RESTRAINING NATION DOT COM user generated Kentucky Derby contender rankings and despite his trouble that experience career dentist moment has not left that number. One spot. You talking about a grade three winner. Who was going to be the favourite the Breeders Cup Juvenile L. Stumbles out of the gate? You know he could be undefeated if you look back at his debut he lost his jockey was really no fault zone so he has the two losses and between between them. He's sandwich to really really nice. Looking victories including his debut at Ellis Park they won by like nineteen and a quarter lengths. I think it was so there's a lot of potential there and he's one that I feel like every once in a while you hear about a derby prospect before they make their debut and then we kind of latch onto them I wanna say it was probably roadster roadster last year because Baffert said he could be his next justify American Farrow and obviously it didn't work out there but they'll Romans has talked up Dennis's moment since before he he ran a race. And so we're we're kind of going to the same thing here As far as a couple of other runners eight rings also out of the Breeder's cup juvenile. He's a really interesting. One didn't really run his race. You know the last time we saw him but I think the way he's going to be handled this season. You have to keep paying attention trained by Bob Baffert. He's he's GonNa run him in the rebel at Oaklawn. And then the Arkansas Derby potentially there as well and then another one that you know kind of on the fence about that you know. He's got a lot of towns. Is Max `field scratched from the Breeders Cup Juvenile. He had a little bit of an issue. There it turns out we found out a couple of weeks after that that he had had a minor surgery for a bone chip. But he's not even in serious training now. Well he's he's he's apparently galloping No works yet and so I think they'll have to do the to A. Ah kind of schedule where you hope to get race out of them and then you have a more serious race which I would expect to be something like the blue grass stakes if everything works out well and he's undeniable town. I'm and I think he's GonNa win a major race somewhere down the road. I don't know if it's going to be the Kentucky Derby and then the other one I feel like it's gotten all the conversation is independence hall at at Independence Hall now makes his move. Independence Hall is the leader getting away to lead by two prints of Pharaohs has moved up on the outside. It's Bourbon Bay Independence All L. linked and a half as they come for the quarto prints of Pharaohs on the outside Bourbon Bay. It is independence hall with the lead and now a furlong to the finish Jose Ortiz showing them the whip now goes to work on independence hall. WHO has a three likely? Just a sixteen to the finish at. It's the constitution called Independence Hall. Tailwind Jerome by four Knights won the national stakes by open links came back and won the jerome. It was a little more workmanlike. But he's going to go. Oh into the new year here as another one of the favorites and if I could talk about one more that has sort of attracted my attention a little bit. It's this ancient warrior horse. I don't know what his path is going to look like. He's Jerry Hall android or for trainee. And if you follow racing at all the last year or so. You'll know that. He's SORTA become embattled. Dan from the strike. Group's tracks out in California But I of all these horses that have won maiden races and we'll be going to the stakes. I want to watch that one closely. He's moved him over to Oakland Park. We should see him in an allowance. Race coming up at the beginning of February and then from then on he should be on the Derby trail else. That's one that that I definitely want to see more of well. You mentioned Bob Baffert. And it's tough to talk about the Kentucky Derby Trail Without Bob Baffert and he has a lot more than the one you mentioned. There's thousand words who ran a big race in the low sal futurity. I'm a Roger Federer Fan but you have to give it up for an doll who is also ambassador trainee. Who looked really really good? So I mean you know Bob Baffert certainly knows how to get horses to the Derby mean how many of these prospects aspects of pan out. I see a path for all of them. To be honest. You know and we also have mentioned authentic. It's still authentic coming to the three the eight ball. He's been in control throughout leads by a length and a half to uncaptured hero. It's all authentic as they pass the quarter pole and turned for home authentic and complete Khaliq Command turning it on. He's in front by sex with a furlong left to go. Zimba Warrior and Assault Coast as authentic is putting on a show. Here is a little green gene shifting about but long gone authentic strolls home in the sham. He'll win by about eight lakes green. It's Grafton stretch and just kept going there and another extremely impressive Horse Nidal I. I wonder about him a little bit. You know we've only seen him one time on Sunday and that six and a half for a long race he he looks like Dortmund Ortmann if you go back to two thousand fifteen big horse. That wasn't extremely fast out of the gate but once he got into stride he went straight to the pace and never really let up there. Yeah it's not not really the kind of horse you want to win the Derby but I think you could get to the Derby and then thousand words certainly has every reason to move forward his last race. I think they had probably a little bit the too much blinker on him and he ended up going head to head with that no door that ran in the Breeders Cup juvenile second. I think it's SORTA legitimize both of those horses that they ran so closely in the future. But I think thousand words is probably at least a couple of lengths better then a no door. He just probably didn't see him in the stretch until Flavian Kinda guided him out and it's like Oh with the blinker. The horse realized he had something to run against a win on. So I guess when you talk about horses that I'm looking at in the new year. Thousand Words is definitely on that shortlist list to Jonathan Listener of racing. Nation is with us here on the gate. We've talked a little bit about the Breeders Cup juvenile which was a topsy turvy race. You had three big horses that we've mentioned into all had their problems that day. We haven't talked about the horse. Who Wanted Storm the court for trainer Peter Martin and that would be a very popular win in the racing business? As you know what chance do you give storm the court to back up what he did in the juvenile. Oh probably not much not a lot of black type in the family. I'm not sure if there's any black type from Stanley I'd agree wise. And then you know he was obviously the beneficiary of other horses stumbles in that race You Know He. He goes gate to wire was not really pressed a whole lot and at the same time. I think they took the blinker. They put their blinkers on. I'm sorry and I have not a fan of lemon. That put blinkers was on a horse at that point in their career. I feel like you should be taken them off so that they can relax. Prepare to go a little bit longer. I think that race and the circumstances just all all came together for storm the court and allowed him to upset that race. It's forty five to one. Whatever he ended up that day I'm sort of in agreement? I think with everybody else that the the the better Derby Derby prospect was no door and second in that race going forward. I want to mention because these races have just happened. Enforceable label for Mark Cassie. Who is not missed? A beat after a son norm went out on his own. He had been his father's chief assistant and enforceable. Really good winning the Lecomte. But we haven't seen too many Lecompte winners. Go on to run well in the Kentucky Derby. Where do you put me as a tap it colt out of a dixie union in marriage? The breeding is good. I put him a really high on my list. As far as forces will be in the Derby but I would not put him on my list of forces that I think can win the Derby and I say that because of his running style you know if we go back to almost every year that the point system has been effect and obviously gets rid of those pure your sprinters. It's the horses that can put themselves near the front at the beginning of the race and keep that pace up and never be caught by closers that tend to win the Derby enforceable enforceable is one of those closers. It's inevitable that he's GONNA run into traffic problem you know. I almost hope he sneaks into the Derby and everybody overlooks. Because I feel like he's the kind of horse could come into the super factor. That's probably going to be a really common line of thought. Though I mean I'm thinking a few months out but the soup perfect You know in the era of a favorites winning the Derby is as remain because it's pretty high minimum of really profitable wager for people nonetheless so yeah for me. He's a super effective player. I I I think he's GonNa be okay as the distance is longer obviously is a full brother Mohammed and a half years day. There's a lot there in the pedigree just really impressive on paper and it was good to see him run as well as he did you know He. He broke his maiden at nine furlongs last summer at Saratoga and it looks like okay. Here's a real two year old and I you know he ran into you. Go into a little bit shorter and the breeder security at keeneland and Max field because two things came together and got him beat but he's definitely better horse than he showed that day and it was good to see him back it up the trump
Who's the Champ?
"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. I mean it's interesting possibilities. Are the horses doing nominated at the box He's done. I'm very well. This is of course. A lot of people east might have remembered with Chad Brown Barrasso. And you know he was good you know. He got coming up. In the minor spot that West to John Adler Verona's ray thing all of a sudden. He's winning all these steaks and eat it. You can't east to Churchill even lost or any blocks. We'll see if he's going to be the ones that they decided to send into the race. It'd be a good one back wizar- people know this story. That fifteen thousand dollars who ran against maximum security and the world's most famous Amos. Sixteen Thousand Dollars Eight lamer and it'll be in there. I think it'll be a big competitive fourth. It doesn't I think have the superstar. One runner arrogate powerpoint chrome Omaha beaches in that category But it's interesting. It's good to get back into talking about racing and Bobby Hall. Nobody better to do it with so. Thank you so much barry. Thank you always chat that with you so when we come back here on the gate. 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.

Frankly frankly I got the sense that he would have stayed another he would have stayed the rest of the show. Had there not been had had there not been a A specific assignment format at the top of the hour. But he tells me I don't know if he's perfected these stories. He's or if he just delivers them with a a certain aplomb but he told the historian of the first Dorsey bought a keeneland With thirty sloughs which was just wildly entertaining. Well Bob is when he gets it. Nobody's comfortable around you. He's got one hundred of those stories. Yeah and you know. He doesn't usually tell us. You know some guys have two stories. They tell the same two stories wherever they go. He's got one hundred stores and you might hear the same one twice and and it's It's pretty good. And and and when he come walking down the hall with his brother Bill who lives in Tucson here and I just Bob just told me that the other day and is man and I didn't know you live goes thank God. You didn't knocking on my door every day and I said yeah you're probably right but bills the same way. He's over the telling telling stories stories about those guys growing up and doing things so very gracious and they've said Todd came here a little bit ago.

He told he told a racing secretary story from Los Owl that I've never heard curly Smith. He is to be from what I understand the toughest raising secretary on record bar. Non Anywhere knew every horse on the grounds and what everybody knew everything about everybody he he said he told the story. The Guy who the guy a left the shed left the light on in the Tack Room and apparently Smith would go around the barns every night he made he made the trainer unscrew the lightbulbs out of the tack room and bring it to his office every afternoon. And then come pick it up the next day for a week stores my good friend. Bruce Jackson who trained quarterback reverses over there before of any test name before he transferred over to read gave. He used to tell me stories about curly Smith and still does and I didn't believe him at first. And then I'd start getting a little few backup stories around the corner but I believe right in other words. You're not wasting electricity. Unless you need that ball you'd leave it with me and if I didn't know the background up the essence but oh my God made me laugh but their stories about this guy You know if you brought a horse in if you had nine stalls and you brought that tenth horse and he knew it any would literally put you on the Horse until you to ride it out the gate. I mean I've heard all kinds of they never met the guy quite a legend quarterhorse guests. Redoubt Alameda now. And you know every time everytime baffert brings up Brad McKenzie. Just he you know.

That's a lot of pressure like this winter when we were having problems out there SANITA. Yeah that was one of the big things that you know. If this isn't workout I got a lot of families that are counting on me and you know they just can't pick up no go. Oh or whatever and they've been with me for you know twenty twenty years and seeing all the kids grow up so there's a lot of extra pressure that you know that that that people don't know about you but So but it's been very you know I. I'm so lucky that work down you know. I'm glad that my grandmother let me that thousand dollars. I don't know what would happen if she didn't give me the the money but but it was as you never things happen for a reason it's one of the you know it's one of the things about the game that you know. There's there's a certain degree of locked that That it just as is out there to be to be captured and I suppose some of it. Some of it is is just knowing just being relaxed and as you as you've discussed before I mean just Adjusting how you you always talk about making decisions with horses during the run-up On the classic trail and just making those decisions on feel I remember when I was when I was like sixteen this Wayne Look is comes into scenario with these shiny trailers. These fancy voices to run in the trials okay and we all went up to the fence ago. Everybody was saying that's Wayne Lukas. Man That's guy it's light light and I wanted to go up and introduce mice. I was scared to de. ooh I was like That's him and I got it close. Look I'm watching him man but this he's just he is like you not only is he. He's a great horse Horseman and Horse Trainer He's great horsemen but he was a good showman and he knew how to For for the better he knew how to promote the sport he really. And when he when he came into the corridors business. He changed the course. I mean he the Barnes all of a sudden he had had the most beautiful barnes and the flowers in there and stuff. Rake at the herringbone tendency a herringbone Rig that's Wayne Lucas and people that try what is gold toe to toe with and they went and broke. They couldn't they couldn't stay up because he kept winning. And then when he came thoroughbreds he changed at all and During the process he sort of rubbed a lot of people the wrong way and they you know and so you know the thing about Wayne he was never really when you come from the corridors and just jumped in there he it was really totally never accepted fully. When you come for the hard boots and because he didn't come up from you know they they think a lot of the you know the trainers are You know come in like you know the typical trainers supposed to look like Leroy Jolly lovely. I get get to know him last year and I just love what I totally right when I saw him. I said when I see you Leroy. I'm intimidated 'cause to me. Leroy was above me because I watched him. I think he was great trainer. And all these guys and I see 'em brea and those guys like I would never consider myself at their their level to me. They're still above me. Union means so when you see these guys when you're growing up on television you know like And last I used to pick your arraign these older guys. And that's what I did.

You had it on his and I wanted to. I WANNA walk up and introduce myself to them. But I was too scared. I was too intimidated. Go up there and introduce myself. I am a new trainer and trying to get into business but I wish I would have gone up there and talk to because he was just you know I really enjoyed watching. He was you know he brought a lot to the sport. I love listening to all his little. One liners you know and and stuff but you know I was it. Just SORTA SHY and intimidated. Walk up to him and say I'm just wanted to meet you and and then do it. Well From there though the tables have turned a as you as you suggest you know some people th they see you and and they're intimidated and they shouldn't be either.

That story. Yesterday was very. I was very surprised by Peter Sir. Peter does a good job with horses. He takes care of him. He's got great help and for him. To recommend the horse be retired and Basically be overruled is interesting interesting so anyway today we as we as we head into the last part of the of the of the seminar the last day as you mentioned that I think the the most attended session will be the one that's on earlier this morning with with the little. Basically a couch session with Bob Baffert and Todd pletcher. Just discussing their their their lives here at at the University of Arizona and then continued. you know onto the race track and the success. They've had Training and and WHO. They've worked for how they've gotten where they where they banned so I think that starts at eight o'clock and then I'll go on till nine thirty. I think that'll that'll get people out of bed early. And continue on with some of the other segments we have today. We're GONNA talk to TO PETE WE'RE GONNA get a hold of foreign ital- and of course Pete and and Marshall and JK. Jonathan Kinchen and Pat. Cummings the Pete not here but The three of them pat and Marshall and Jonathan going to be in your session later today right and we all had. We went out for dinner and drinks last night just discussed some topics and and and where I know. I Know Jonathan Pretty Well and Pat. I've known I I really got to know Marshal Graham. What what a what a nice guy? What a good guy that he he has got to know him last night? Not only a a player said the other day one of the only few people can get away with calling himself and economists listen actually meaning and he's a professor at Rhodes College in Memphis teaches a class on economics and and frozen a little horse racing into the class. He's majority the Partner in in a stable ten strike ten strike stable and he told me that I said so. Oh how many horses are are in your in your care. How many horses do you have? He says about eighty yeah. WHOA so he has he his group? We've had his best year. He's he's they've had this year. He's had five stake winners over three million dollars in earnings employs eleven different trainers Summit fairgrounds air ground. Some are going to be at Oakland Park parks all over the place. So you know another guy that's invested heavily into the game and we're going to enter into some discussions of of you know the Horse Player and you know the people that put food on everybody's table that's here at the here at the symposium and sometimes forgotten sometimes. Yeah sometimes sometimes you know. Just just don't have enough say in the game and hopefully come up with a few things that information will help all horse players across the country and hopefully some operators will be there and these guys need to be sitting at the board the the board tables of of racetracks when decisions are made the wagering and some tracks are better at this than others and some have a better feel for it then others It It's a the ebb and flow of how certain you know certain organizations are operating. And it's funny too because some That that are bad at at seemingly certain areas might might be might be much better at at that at being in touch with the player. And so you know it's A. It's it's an ebb and flow. We're going to flow into first grade. We'll come right back and I want to talk a little bit about the the session. I that that I moderated rated and a few things that it will see Michael Dickinson later wants to sit in. I A Dickinson. At this point it seems to meet his overselling.

Rich Eng Talks About the Potential of This Breeder's Cup Due to Changes in Play
"There is rich good morning good morning I rich Eh. This was going to talk about the official for this Breeders Cup because of the way Santa Anita's playing and because they've kept track slow you know trying to equate it goal you know when it comes to the main track how decided edge are you gonNA give them next week well that's a really good question because neither track is a lot different now than it's been in years they've really slowed it down it's a lot deeper I thought we saw kind of a little taste of how a shiver might handle the different track is seeking the soul it come out to southern California not do well and I think a lot has to do with the track surface but I've noticed some of the trainers have opted to come out really likes Steve Asmussen and some others and I think that's a smart move the acclamation oh even if they don't get a full blown work but at least Allah on a consistent basis each morning over the track has got to be a help in getting these choices used to the deeper surface and so that's a great question in my mind is going to definitely play as one faction when factor and Randy Kevin and the the Asmussen early you know early move out there I thought was was pretty telling and in the when I guess it was what probably four years ago maybe when asked listen sent Scott Blasi out for a winter and tried to establish a beachhead and of course the the racetrack wasn't necessarily the same way then but I think the I struggled a little bit and the fact that the fact that they went out early like this is to me is notable and you know obviously midnight be sue and Matola or the you know are the are the principal stars but yeah there's plenty more they got the baby seizes well that shoplifted for instance in the juvenile wicked whisper for the girls race so they've got a they've got a strong hand that they they bring out just it's GonNa be the other issue when it comes to trying to decipher this rich on Friday you know you always you always looked what the track is doing on Friday to maybe make some interpretation for how to approach Saturday but in this case dealing with the oval races the two you know you've only got those two and obviously there's not gonNa be any any east coast horses participating in the golden in state races so you really don't you really can't count on the juvenile performances as necessarily of a gauge on what's going to happen Saturday juvenile's the juvenile's could misfire for all kinds of reasons well you know that's certainly a possibility in order to jumps off the page to myself and a lot of people can get juvenile day the stars in the Future Day is a dentist moment he has been working so fast that I you know I quite frankly I'm salivating the white he can do next try I certainly hope Iran's oil because that would be exciting if he's able to run a big race could create a national natural eastwest kind of like competition with Bob Baffert eight rings who seems to be possibly the best our west and then this moment back east and we always like like rivalries and this might be one step the first step of maybe these two meeting multiple times from what you've seen so far we had dictum earlier Steve asking just spent an hour we mostly we spent a good half hour on the on the classic what are you your initial impressions talk about hours you know like that we wanna see not only what they do in the Breeders Cup but then and look forward to three year old season and that's one of the real appeals of of the juvenile card on Friday what other horses what other spots rich are you initially focused on and particularly eager to get the fields drawn and a start to make decisions in my mind I think the most interesting angle that certainly will get played up a lot is the decision of Bill Mata enter a late first preference in the classic I've been reading a lot of comets and social media there's a lot of people who don't think that was a good move but I certainly would not the question anything that the bill sites you do because one is in the hall of fame already and I will never be and the two is sure he is thought this through and in bounce the idea off a lot of people in his circle of advisers and friends and well he did not come to a decision like this early so I'm really interested to see how she runs You know the last time we had the philly slash mayor running the classic was of course the Great Sin Yada and you know her resume speak for herself I I don't think anybody questioned her I at least I hope they didn't question her running in the classic twice you on one year and then got beat the head by blaming the second go round but you know I think this is a good opportunity for me right because this is not in my mind one of the most talented classic fields that we've seen down the pike it's a good group but I think if you look at the figures going back on a lot of the horses at rendered I mean they're good speed figures but they're not great speed figures any late depending on your sources either consistently can consistently run with them on her best day or did not that far behind in proven factor she's three for three going a mile and a quarter so you know in the last furlong or two and some maybe gasping the hope is that she'll be just come out like a like a Azzam tank and the stretch and I would be real interesting if she could upset that growth so that's my number one choice as far as interest well in fact you earlier this week you wrote a little piece kind of looking at some some price potentials and some some more says that you've already thank that you you might WanNa bet on late was was a big focus affect the you started the discussion with her what other what other prices have you have you just been kind of tracking you know knowing that you know once the fields got assembled the you would probably utilize well I could go back Act that the store I did ready for America's best racing website in the I focused on three space limitations kind of parental from going much deeper but I will as we get into the coming days but the second horse I listed is actually a fairly high marquee horse from the trump the crown the season is improbable for Bob Efforts I think people who watched his race in the Pennsylvania Derby the last time out the horse activist open the starting gate again I I don't know what exactly causes it I'm sure Bob Baffert is has been trying a million things that try to remedy the behavior situation in the but the horse got off slowly and then the made a huge run to get into the race and the only lost by a length and a quarter length and a half in the blanket finish at the wire but he's writing and entered in the mile I think it's a really good spot for them I know there's GonNa be a lot of high profile case the date you're going to be above him but you know thing that happens in saying the neither sometimes you get a little too fast paced especially or she's that are used to running twenty twos and forty five you know they they may not be able to relax as much as the connections would want and set up a fast pace and double and everything I read about him that's been training brilliantly for Baffert so I thought he would be dangerous pricewise I think he'll go off at a higher odds and people might assume because there's some other horses like money and if he behaved himself Steve and brings his game I mean he's your horse I'm looking at it the hopefully usually Christ you know I it the one thing that that and he was my derby pack and and I've been a fan of his literally from day one and I was at La Salle for

"Jeremy plonk standing by joins us now good morning or hey I'm just wondering why we didn't get any theme music before the before the segment today I need a little Old School I think it was Larry Role I'm so dizzy my head is spinning look at you I don't know what day of the week it is well it'll it'll get a little bit easier at least you know I think most of the major decisions that had people kind of wondering you know Catalina cruiser declaring for the sprint it was pretty obvious from early on Mottola sprint the Omaha beach decision some of that will be came clear there's there's those I think of the dust is settling Brixton borders is GonNa Cross adder but he's running in the turn ah you know it does feel like will be will be you know in in as much flocks between today and next Monday no I mean that's that part will come together then it becomes you know the devils you know won the doubles you know and and how you prepare for those it'd be for me obviously I'm a adequately equipped I think on The three year old the two year old so far this year the Qinglin racing the consumer circuit that I follow close you know the major horses at Santa Anita little lighter on the New York horses the most just not my my wheelhouse and the internationals are where I'm going to have to study up you'll have a point once we get the past performances for these racist you know it'll be a couple of days of good study hill next Monday Tuesday or so studying a lot of the Europeans that'll be Reading a lot I think that the the Europeans a little more honest I think in the press about how their horses are doing and what they like and what they don't like the American traders who get canned dancers most of the time so you know a lot of reading and a lot of race they watching but race replay watching stuff with the Europeans because just the style of those races are so much different than what we see in the US I mean horse made quicken and show a tremendous turn of foot but if they ran I you know there in the first mile in one forty they can't quick in a little more than they would say in the US you know so The the Europeans will Lena Quandary for me they always do at the Breeders Cup but to me it makes it exciting I mean I'm glad they're there but as a handicapper they certainly add an x factor it was difficult to it with that that's fair and I I if I want to make a make a parallel utilize is the recent success of of there were a couple of Chad Brown two year olds struck door was one them and there was also philly and both of them had one the broken their maidens with what would be considered modest figures and when they when they got their chances when you were comparing them to the fuller field steak opportunities you had to you had to kind of suspend your your normal mentality and appreciate much more the the race flow and the race style and project whoa how that was going to play against a either a fuller field or or a field that at a first glance looked you know looks like ah the horse would be you know shouldn't be one of the favorites and I and I think a lot of people have gotten into that habit in practice when particularly when it comes to Chad Brown to realize that they they may have just done what they needed to do and they're going to be as effective against a better field and that you know you can't simply you make a summary judgement and that's the same kind of of approach that you have to take with with the Europeans. because you know the times aren't going to compare and and you know the it's a bit of a of a mystery for the most part and you know that that's one of the reasons that years ago when those video compile ations would come out and you waited you waited anxiously the DVD Rom. Well but I. I'm sorry I'm old enough that I was getting VHS tapes so forget yours in your dvd we'd get those two you'd get a call bs on it but if you go to that I had Ah Talk about Beta I buy I my first recording device player was was purchased in Cincinnati it Steinberg's and and it just so happened that's Cincinnati because of Steinberg's who was a big Sony Outlet Cincinnati was a Beta town Beta was bigger there than than ahs started with Beta yeah and then I realized off track is because my dad had a Beta that had one of the I remote controls on it but it was actually a hat you know it had a cord to it sure court with only about eight minutes long so you have to be eighteen inches away from the damn day the remote anyway over press the button but Jason Brown with no of you know why they may just do enough you know especially early on watch the watch the workout videos you know expertise such a wonderful ivory of these from New York Florida California and all around the country and of course the breeders forces but watch every Chad Brown workout there's two horses working together they go slow they finish up even they just enough finishing up I mean this is what they're trained to do right I mean when these courses actually get into a race they've never finished more than in front of another horse at any point in their life every the Chad puts out there looks almost identical they come home well they come together they hit the wire in a pair and this is what they know to do you know not maybe they get further into the career in their let loose and and could really do their thing but to see like a Chatsworth win by measured half length and not a very fast time right out of the box that China to plan I mean look at the script look what he does the sources every morning and that's the beauty of being able to see some of these workout videos did you get to see what trainers normally doing what they do and they look at you watch most of his works then you see what the heck is wholly did yesterday and that is so like that's even Africa for Bob Baffert that gate workday was fast and that's not the norm for Stephen and even Bob commented on after saying I thought my horse is worth fast so I saw only one of the great we talked about reading trainer language you know they don't talk about their horses very you know openly a lot of times they're kind of close to the vest but when a good trainer talk about somebody else's horse especially somebody another division you should listen you know and when Bob Backwards Wild by the totally that tells you something and I think that it gets pretty significant the it was funny because Jay Ribbon joins US yesterday and j the quip came through j where he said The track was played slow after he after review said vast out Jeremy I wanNA talk keenly you but let's get a couple of quick Breeders Cup hits in while we have the opportunity and we're about fifteen minutes away from the start of what should be about either I five minute or probably an hour long announcement of of the pre entered fields we got the wagering coming out Friday breath or stuff wager gotta be available for Free Download on Friday and the fourteen analysts the rolling in right now that's part of why I'm spinning and we're waiting to get the final word on some of these pre entries to see where we're at but guys have been gals have been working hard in advance of preparation researches that'd be a great product free download express dot com check it out starting Friday and then we'll update it race week after we have the final entries and everything like that so give you two chances to check it out
Part 3: Jeff Siegel, Ed DeRosa, James Scully
"Jeff Good Morning Good morning how you doing excellent and lots to digest. We've already talked to the J ribbon earlier this morning morning. I want to get your take on what went on about the racist we discussed last week including the the upset which I think is less shocking talking than people. The people are are feeling. It didn't seem upon further review that Mongolian groom was all that impossible well. He wants to me I mean I thought he'd run well but I I really I'd watch McKinsey working. I thought he was ready to roll. Oh and just looking at the form I thought that he would win and he he moved to the top of the stretch like he was going to pounce and then he kind of flat out and I I always had a little sense of doubt that maybe he wasn't quite amount of quarterhorse but this is only a mile and they and I was disappointed and I think Bob Baffert with two do I really was an he's made in announcement that he's going to replace my Smith with a writer that we don't know who's going to be. I'm sure all the the agents are kind of hanging around trying to throw their hat in the ring but yeah I mean I it was I mean it's it's just it's the nature of the game here. We've you see this happen a lot and perhaps the real the real important racist coming up a month from now but if you've you know food for thought as to whether or not the horse that we also at least I thought was the number one older horse in the country. is really that much better than everybody else and amount of quarter. I think it's anybody's game now fold in as well the the result at the Jockey Club Gold Cup and what did you think of the takedown and who do you favor of the two of them coming out west well. I'll tell you what that I I was kind of hoping that it didn't come down and even I thought the three year old is going to win the race going in and what am I ran well. I thought he I thought he had every chance to get by but it was a tough. It's tough to lose a race lightweight like way when push came to shove and unfortunately for her also did come to push he he hung in there I think both both of those are deserving the universal. I'd come already come out west a winner racer over the summer so we subtract and so they'll meet again it's I I. I was talking about this. The other day was Zoe on our podcast and we we were pretty much not baffled. I don't think that's the way but kind of open to in trying to figure out who might win the plastic doors so many possibilities now so many horses that look like they're capable title stepping up some of them that look good or maybe vulnerable so I duNNo. We'll be watching the next couple of three weeks to see who trains the best. Maybe maybe we can come up with a conclusion but right now now. It's really a mess we'll wait till they get the decisions. The final decisions horses like a late and late would add another wrinkle visit I think they're thinking mile and a quarter and the boys aren't that top much tougher for maybe the midnight DC would be if he ran against her again and and a mile an eighth in the in the the staff so that would that would certainly make an interesting well a couple of other thoughts jeff about last weekend the reasons we discussed filled D'Amato just a of magical a couple of days pee wee reese on Friday mirth and Cleopatra Strike in the Rodeo drive and the John Henry able to Geo Story. I keep coming back to it because what can you say and then Sunday Paradise Woods and I ask you the same question that I brought up up with Jay and I asked Sadler too Sadler Sheriff's the other day if she runs that race of the distaff she's she's a major major player and I know she's a notorious in and outer but I thought that was a terrific effort it was it was accomplished under under pristine conditions sitting right outside a speed horse with nobody all rounder nobody in front of her nobody beside her with kind of like a workout for but she did feel the deal as she finished strongly and she earned a beyer speed figure that was something like eight or nine points better than they were not that that means anything but bottom line is she ran really well now whether or not she can do that again I don't know if he pointed out not exactly your model of consistency and I thought maybe your best days were behind her but boy did she work well and I I I yeah I mean you have to go. You have to think that going into the dispatch. This definitely has a legitimate chance I mean if she decides to show up with a game the thing that we're going to start talking about Jeff when when when I'm at clockers corner and and we're watching horses work and when we analyzed the the XP TV workouts leading up to the race between you and Millie Ah Zoe is going to be fitness levels and the one thing you're not going to have to worry about John. The sheriff's Baffert and Sadler is is fitness of these horses on that racetrack and that's going to be a huge factor and I'm I'M GONNA keep referring to the east coast horses that went to del Elmar for the Pacific Classic and God drowned on that deep surface and Steve Asmussen asked me to his credit with with tenfold he learned his lesson and went out early with Mottola because he is not gonna get caught on that element he wants his horses. This is ready to travel over that surface and it's going to be something we we really focus on and then I'm sure in the recap you know after breeders Peter Scott. It's GONNA come up well down. Mars is eat but it's it's not it's not any deeper than in Santa Anita where this is not the old Santa Anita track backwards you know three quarters in eight and change all all day long I mean you have to be did fit to run on. This track is deep. You just tiring you you have to train over it. I think I think it really helps and yeah I think it's going to be very important to to to watch the works and I I do think it's going to be a great advantage for horses to get in early and get a beast of one or maybe even to work over the drag your possible because it's it's not it's it's tough. It's it's it. It's deeper than New York and Belmont Park is I'm convinced of that and I know Belmont to be called the fanny and all that but this track is is big heavy. I mean it's the faith it's safe and that's why they made it so deep but you've gotta get through it and you gotTa. That'd be fit well. Let's get set to look at the weekend and before we talk about Saturday any any day maker ideas for today well. You know it's yeah I mean I I did do a couple of San Anita and I can give the a little bit of an insight today's tough but I like the Philly name swirling in the fourth race she's not the favorite averaged five to two zero six two five in there she's a late running turf sprinter that that I that likes attending through force and they're starting to run five and a half now in the first we've got a couple now they extended the shootout there so she'd found five furlongs on this course a little stripe and she was hitting the boy and running well but just running out of room now she goes five and a half and I noticed in the few couple of five and a half long since we've had so far that the closers have a better chance and she's she's good enough to win. and I think that extra half for a long we'll give her the edge that she needs so I'm looking at number two swirling in the fourth race to kind of heightened me over for that's my play play today. It's an okay car not a great guard but I think we can we can get some value there because she's not going to be the favorite it's excellent all right swirling today and Let's let's go to the weekend and obviously the steak the steak side of things Let's talk about talk about the city of hope I because it it it really is intriguing and I brought up with Jay earlier. Jeff the mixing and matching of older horses. I mean really veteran in six seven eight year olds like synchrony and Ohio and Bolo and catapult facing off against some horses that may be emerging What's your angle in the studio? It's really hard. I handicap this this race and I came up with about four or five that on their best day could win. synchrony is intriguing to me I think he's intrinsically the best of the group but he doesn't have a lot of tactical speed and going a mile on this course even though he's running the tool aww theoretically he could maybe draft into the mid part of the mid packing and save the nangle out and get through he tends to give himself a lot to do and I remember when he came out here for the CBS del Mar last November. The same thing happened. Do that was sixteen. He fell back. He he had some traffic trouble he got. That's where we finished. Fuller Ronnie finished thirty one but but he didn't get there so I I like him at five to one at synchrony shipper I I hope he gets the trip. If he doesn't then you can make a case for a number of these. I mean looking for fifteen to one shot number four on your program. Aziz restrained vengeance. He's GonNa get loose in the lead and if he does that he can be dangerous. TAT upholds training really well but he's form doesn't look all that well you gotta go back to the Kilroy Mile Back in March the finding good but at least it was over this turf fourth and he could pop up Sadler. He's five to one the raises a bunch of the race basically is is a bunch. That's a five to one shots hoping for good luck but I think maybe if he gets through synchrony can win I wanted to I wanted to like River Boyne off the lay off and then John White made him four to one and that that cooled my ardor well you know I looked at him him and he was a very good three year old and he hasn't won at four and haven't made a lot of progress at least according to his numbers and he goes from practice and I'm looking elsewhere. Let's put it that way you know a to go back to an angle from last week as that in fact Jay also came up with and Dash the other filled D'Amato player and here's able to do who the things that just seem to be running for Jeff at at least from what we saw last week while they they ran for a golden gate when he was leading rider up there and I talked to them for a number of years actually we had horses up there and he he wrote for us always felt that he was good enough but he was kingpin up there era and then he decided to make the leap and I thought it might be tough for them but it really hasn't he's really falling favor with the with the horsemen down here and he's a strong writer but he's a good rider as far as and dishes concern. He's coming off a nice win. Del Mar.. He's obviously never beaten this this group although he did run second Mendelssohn and his racing debut of that matters which it doesn't that was way back in two thousand seventeen at the Curragh but but he's he's he's developing. He's he's coming around and the way the model is going. I mean I wouldn't put anything past him and especially in a race like this in which really there is no standout and anything can happen so hey why not wanting to watch a couple of other thoughts. what do you make of this chance Salat Omaha beach matchup the very very different set of three year olds against elders in the in the sprint championship wells twelve sheds lots four to five in the morning line because he's not only the fastest horse in the race in terms of numbers but he's also look controlling speed and he doesn't even have to go that fast my my concern was and it's kind of happened in the Jerkins a little bit then I know that the inside part of the wasn't particularly hit that day but they kinda slowdown down twenty three flat forty five and and he's fast horse and I think you gotta use his weapon and I think going three quarters. They don't have to worry too much about you. Know saving reading anything so I I would suspect he'll bust out there and go. He had a nice breeze over the track. I think Navarro did the right thing by bringing them out early and breezy had a half and forty. He's seven and one third fastest at sixty five last week and he lied did it. The right way looked like he was relaxed like he got over the track very very well so he's going to be it really hard for Omaha Beach the rundown although I my theory about Omaha beach is that he's always wanted to be a sprinter and because he was so good and all the money's going long long that Richard Mandella kept running them wrong and why wouldn't he won the rebel in the Arkansas Derby any may have even able to win the Kentucky Derby had come down with the trap Levada brought his only sprint race of his career only race of seven that he actually sprinted
Justify - A Legacy Questioned
"Justify another exhilarating exhibition by the supremely gifted athlete. He's on the dizzying. US enter greatness the winning the Santa Anita Derby clearly from both arrive according to an article written by Joe Drape in the New York Times shortly after this race justify vite tested positive for a banned substance called scopolamine in humans scopolamine is used to treat motion sickness or nausea. That's it's caused by say anesthesia. But why would it end up in a horse. Is it a performance enhancing drug. SCOPOLAMINE is in the least greeted grievous class of drugs. According to the guidelines of the Association of Racing Commissioners International Still The Times article reported that justify had had three hundred nanograms per milliliter which a veteran drug lab official called excessive according to The Times the California horse racing being bored waited nearly three weeks to alert Bob Baffert that the horse had had a positive drug test that was nine days before the Kentucky Derby then the Times Times reports. It took nearly four more months before the board made a final decision on the matter in August. They dismissed it. The New York Times article clearly clearly raises quite a few questions about the results the process and the information spelled out in the story so to help us. Shed some light on this we we welcome in one of the California horse racing board members involved in the process Jesse Choper who is now retired from the board and is also a professor meritous of law at cal Berkeley and a constitutional scholar in fact when Mr Choper finished law school he served as the clerk for the Chief Justice Disobey the Supreme Court Earl Warren so Mr Choper. Let's take this one step at a time first of all. What do you remember about. I hearing about a positive test for justify the horse that had at that point won the Santa Anita Derby and would be heading to the Kentucky Derby that horse you know always a famous course so it seems to me that I would have remembered something I thought about when you cut in touch with me and it may well be you know we do dozens of cases on this every month so I I it seemed to me as as I looked over the whole thing that everything was done pursuant to protocol I think that the racing board at the time should be commended rather than criticized for what it is what it what it didn't that case why the you know the Horse was considered to be the number one horse at the time and to going to run in the the the triple crown. Look for it and what we did is we we listen to the case it involved in drug. I should say drug that has since been stated to be one that is not forbidden at all okay but at the time it was my experience on the racing board is always been that we are overly sensitive to this. I think we have the most thorough investigations on these matters or or considerations these matters than any racetrack in the country AH outside of California certainly been including outside but you know any any race track we do the same thing for all all of the local California race tracks so he did get a positive on it and I I imagine although Oh I don't know that I I recall it that they asked it to be done it over again. I don't know I think it was renewed. As a positive and I think it was agreed to be a positive subsequently after that the board considered it I my guess in something something like this is a twenty twenty five minute conversation and I truthfully do not remember exactly what happened but I imagine that at that time we did not put the horse. disqualified a horse from their race that he had entered well. Let's take a one step at a time here first of all. Do you recall whether justify was the only horse to test test positive at that time for scopolamine. No Okay Doctor Arthur the Ecuadoran medical director director told a member of the Vegas Stats and information network that six horses tested positive. I must say that if Rick said that and that's the fact he is a he his he's the most he's the most respected of the people with the whole country in terms of being the medical medical representative that reports to the board. So what did you end and the other CHR be commissioners know about this drug scopolamine what it does to a horse how it gets into a horse etc at the time. I'm sure that we were informed about it. Okay but I certainly don't recall so the CHR be then notified Bob Baffert who as you mentioned ordered a second test a B sample of the urine there always to in case something goes wrong the first time and it came back positive yes. Yes that's right so the New York. Times article says the sports rules were not followed Mo.. We should point out that there is no one governing body for the sport in this country each state that sanctions horse racing makes its own rules so so in California. What is the timeframe for reviewing these samples. The is is I reviewed by Stewart. It's at the race track. They go for it. They make a judgement that can be appealed and then some of them can be appealed to be reviewed by the racing board on a number of them. We look at it over the written record and decide. It's not worth ah the time of the Board to review it otherwise we do review. What if you ask me if we reviewed it. I don't know I think we probably did eh. The New York Times article said that Bob Baffert was notified nine days before the Kentucky Berbie which would have been over three weeks since the result of the test was made known to you. What do you know about out that and how do you feel about that timeframe. I don't have any idea that as to whether this was any different than the ordinary timeframe that would occur under the circumstances of the facts of this case

"Just to tooling to the state site. A second audible. Welcome back to the equine forum. This is your host Judy feld in our Jimmy Johns. Lexington broadcasts do us. Ios. He's just awesome. The those words will be played forever and ever now about justify who was so impressive. Taking last year's edition the Kentucky Derby, an amazing horse trained by Bob Baffert, his fifth Kentucky Derby winner. And you you heard them all you heard. All right there. I mean, you you just go down that line. And you can't imagine one one of the highlights of my. Year last year was going to old friends and seeing silver charm just. Feisty as ever he loves people took a friend of mine Christian Dickinson who used to Gallup him for Bob Baffert, and she took a couple pictures with them, but he saw her and he came running dead run to the fence to visit her and that was really cool. There's a lot of fun of war Emblem's over there too. And he's a he's kind of a nasty kind of guy. He he doesn't like people. I was on a little bit of a tour one day, I kinda joined in late and he bit a guy right on the shoulder. The guy jumped five feet in the air don't blame him, but did really hurt him that badly. But the men was quite taken aback by the whole thing. He'd been warned by the tour guide not to get too close to him. But he turned his back to them and and war, and we'll just reached over the fence and and grabbed him, so it's very interesting to to be around these horses when they retire and and see their personalities and a lot of times just like they were when. N- they were at the race track. Well, Bob Baffert. He's an amazing trainer. He. He's an amazing person. A lot of times if you catch them on the right day..

"That for churchill downs the oaks and derby day they they make enough profit on there to run the entire year as far as justify explained to me why justify is only three to one and the prohibitive favorites the the other in the second place i don't have them all but it looks like justifies one of the best prohibitive favorites in the last few decades wise justify that good well he never lost he the only thing bad about justify never he's only race three times didn't raise the two year old but he's trained by bob baffert who knows how to get a horse ready for the kentucky derby he's very well bred his races have all been the for the they've been just keep getting better he broke his maiden he won a race in the mud then he won the santa anita derby a million dollar race against really seasoned horses and he did it so easily everything has been effortless for this horse that's that's the thing but you don't know how good they are until they go amount a quarter he's never been more than a mile and an eight none of these courses have but now tomorrow he's going to mile and a quarter for the first time he's been faith in five six hundred fields all of a sudden there's going to be twenty of them in the nineteen of them in the gate within tomorrow so that's gonna be that's gonna be tough he can't this horse has never never been dumped in a race i've watched all his races he's never been bumped he's a big big goodlooking horse he can probably handle it but until you get out there and a twenty horsfield and somebody comes over and bumps you or you have to check it can be a different race is really the best horse does not always win the derby because of the easy there's such a there's a bigger chance that you're going to have trouble when there's twenty horses in the field and if they're sick so the more horses you get in the more chance there is to have trouble and if he encounters trouble nobody knows how is what's going to happen what's the value of the derby justify one is horses win what is the value what is the cost what is the price how much value does the kentucky derby winner bring it brings a.
