"breeders cup" Discussed on The Final Furlong Podcast

"It's all about Sarah. I'm just saying. I'm thinking about trying to knock you here. I had a deal done. The Barbie was all about it. He was like, who's this Irish trainer? Anyway. First controversy of the night kind of bob outfit. So the TV G, breeders cup juvenile presented by thoroughbred after Caroline's goes to Cornish, who was favored with Mike Smith on board big money Mike for bob. I got a super style benefit. And they not on drugs. I promise y'all. They none of them are nothing. They took things really seriously at del mar. So can you break down for me and Naomi just how seriously they took things because if we were talking about Churchill downs and The Kentucky Derby, and the Kentucky oaks, Bob Baffert would not be welcome and he would not have run her there. Yeah. The breeders cup made the decision to allow him to run, boss under very, very strict protocols, which were. Well, quite a lot. Yeah, increased, I think it was increased randomized out of competition testing for all prohibited substances, increased veterinary and security checks. Additional tests administered during the week of the world. So during the world championships in general, all the horses are under continuous scrutiny, right? There's like a I think four or 5 beds just standing on track or horses get on. If they don't like the way a horse moves, they'll flag them and they'll come and see them every single day and they declare them to run or they go. So that's already in place. This is just even more increased with what bathroom. And then in person 24 hour security surveillance, which started before this cup week started October 20th, which is, you know, a little bit earlier. And then I think it was about 6 bodyguards that were at buffered stables with one on duty at all time as well as them. I think they were wearing body comes as well. So very much heightened scrutiny to have him allowed to run. And I do believe he also fitted the bill for that. So of course, the breeders cup, you know, in the United States, you have obviously not an expert on certain laws here, but I do know that you have the right to a fair and due process as well as the right to make a living. And I think that based on based on the fact that he isn't banned in California. Now, in church at Churchill dance, he can't run in the next two years. He can't run into Kentucky Derby. So, of course, it's interesting that there isn't that reciprocity in place either just yet or there are ongoing procedures here. So I don't want to jump the gun and say anything that is incorrect in that way. But, you know, in a way, they decided that in that in line with that, due process, his runners are allowed to run. But under those incredibly stringent rules and procedures put in place to make sure that everything is, you know, as it should be and that everything is fair and square. So yeah, quite quite interesting to read about, you know, all those procedures that were put in place. And to emphasize, again, that he had to pay for it. Yeah. Which is we were discussing that weren't I don't know that somebody couldn't have been cheap, but on the flip side he, of course, chose to compete under those circumstances. So he was aware of those restriction place, but yeah, oh, it's a tricky situation and for example, as a broadcaster, you know, it's hard because in different states or different meetings with different companies, there were different rules put into place just thinking about Churchill downs for me standing and saying, you know, that he can't compete in there. So it's, you know, it's an unfolding situation that we as media professionals and broadcasts. And everyone involved really just kind of keep following throughout to see what the developments are. Yeah, it's just I think the whole thing's a mess. And he hasn't helped himself in the various different press conferences that he's given. And it's. Strange the Churchill have taken such a strong stance. But they've done it. It's done. That's the stance that they've taken. And you have to respect that. But at the same time, you also have to respect the American legal system, which is, as you said, you are, you have the right to a fair trial. And you are innocent until proven guilty. And until the authorities find him guilty, then it's another story. So with that in mind and given the fact that there was such scrutiny on him and this was obviously something that was being talked about an awful lot on the media as well. When he wins, the juvenile what was the reaction from the crowd? Do.

"Tom durkin on the call of the 2003 breeders cup juvenile Philly's one impressively by the dick Mandela traine half bridled one of four breeders cup victories that year for trainer dick Mandela. Mandela Hall of Famer inducted back in 2001 and pleased to be joined by the Hall of Famer now on the breeders cup countdown presented by hillendale farm dick. Thanks for taking the time. My pleasure. Well, as usual, when it comes to breeders cup time, you're a busy guy. You're busy all the time. Keeping a stable year round here in Southern California, but breeders cup time certainly a busy time for you. You have four horses entered this year in the breeders cup races. Two of them are on the also eligibles list. Sumter tomorrow, bombard on Saturday. And then two of them in the main bodies of the field, dog tag in the filling mirror turf united on the turf. First of all, what are the realistic chances of the also eligible drawing? Well, let me interrupt you. We got some news hot off the press. Bombards got a sore foot. And United's got a little swelling over suspensory. The last couple of days didn't seem like much, but I let him open gallop today, and it's there's something there. He's not going to run. Okay, so back in clean, but there's something going on. I'm not going to take a chance. It's not bombarding united or out. Are these career threatening or just something that little time? Okay. So really bad timing, bad news, bombard will not go in the turf sprint. He's on the also eligible list. United who seems to dance every dance in these big turf races, especially the ones here in Southern California, but in the breeders cups as well. He will be scratched from the breeders cup turf on Saturday. So you heard it here first right from his trainer dick Mandela. So it seems like unless sumpter draws in tomorrow. You're going to have one runner on Saturday on the two days of the breeders cup. And that is dog tag in the filly and mere turf. So dog tag is going to carry the American colors against a whole lot of Euros in that filly in Meritor. But dog tag has been very, very good in her races. Even the races she doesn't win, she's usually right there and but this has not been her favorite turf course thus far. Most of her winds have come up at Santa Anita places like that. Have you noticed any difference with her down here or is this just the way things have shook out? Probably just the way things go. We just call those warmup pitches. She is written by top jock flavian Pratt, who the lone time he wrote her was back in the possibly perfect back in the early part of 2020 and they got the win that day since then she's been ridden by and by the risk will lead Joe bravo last time out in the rodeo drive, and really not far behind going to Vegas. Richard bolt is training in both of those races. Big price on the morning line most of her races have been at shorter distances than a mile and three eighths. How do you envision her handling the extra ground? A lot of a racist she's coming late, not getting there. So we're hoping that the helps. Yeah. Well, my train is not working. So I got to change something. Here train is usually pretty good. I got to say. Speaking of your training, this is not a revelation. Your breathers cup successes. I know when it comes to this time of year, you're reminded of that fantastic day in 2003 a lot. What's going through your mind that day, having that many runners in the same day and just continually finding yourself in the winner's circle, getting pictures taken? You know, it all happened so fast and so big. It was kind of in shock all day. You could tell by the look on his face because we've been friends a long time. We were stabled here. Next one another for many years and you were just like, you had a glow on, but like, you know, you didn't even really, it didn't sunk in yet. I don't know when it did. Maybe the week after, I don't know. You're not a person that really gloats when you win and you don't get too excited when things happen. You told me one time that, you know, every morning, when you go to the barn, there's going to be some bad things. And I learned so much from him, just being stabled next to him and talking to him. I was really upset that they took the wood chips out of the paddock because we used to use it as a little galloping. You taught me how to do that. I won three races because he said, you know, that felt like she didn't like the train, why don't you jog her in the paddock? And I did, and I went three races in a row, and the guy would be a bunch of money and I got out on the whole deal and it was because of Richard, so. Did not for me a tip. You guys didn't talk to Joe Harper, getting to put the witch ships on main track when you guys had horses? That's a really, that was a really sneaky little little play..

"Is this something where you'll sit with jockey and brutal rispoli and game plan or does he pretty much know what to do with this Philly? Now I'll make say a couple words to him, but I don't know if he's gonna listen. He might not. He's very competitive guy in, you know. He's pretty smart. I mean, he knows what he's doing, but yeah, I mean, like when she ran last time, he said, I'm going to the lead. I'm like, you don't have to go to the lead, but anyway. You don't have to do anything to do. No. Anyway, so yeah, it worked. I think he's very, very good rider, but he knows a Philly really well, so we drew inside she has to do his break for clean and she'll be should be saving ground, right? Should we should be saving ground? It's a short run to the turn too. My three turn. So the inside is really not a huge advantage compared to being in the 12 hole, let's say. Yeah, unless they want somebody who wants to go. But, you know, I don't know. I mean, it's exciting. I think we have a chance. You know, obviously we have to run against these beast from Europe, but in their records pretty good when they run in these races. I know like the last time I think was the last Omar's cup of Euros, I think they swept everything on the turf, but we're gonna try. Yeah. We got a good shot. I love the way she's been training. She's a great in the morning. She's in top form right now and we're real happy with her. Oh, Richard really appreciate you taking the time to join us here on the breeders cup countdown presented by hillendale farms, Richard Baltus, sent out gen nobly in the dirt miles Saturday, going to Vegas in the Philly and air turf. Two runners that have chances. And that's all you can ask. Yeah, it would be nice. Thanks so much, really appreciate you taking the time. Thank you guys. All right. All right, Richard both trains around the year round here in Southern California. But of course, part of the big days this coming Friday and Saturday, especially Saturday with the dirt mile in ginobili and the filling mayor turf with going to Vegas. Jude, I know several people who really like ginobili in the dirt mile and just love the way he's looked, especially his last two races here at del mar and with those blinkers on. I mean, those two racers are phenomenal. Yeah, he's been doing really good and in the Phillies been doing really good so richer has a couple nice shots. Absolutely. He does. Well, we're going to hopefully go from one locally based trainer named Richard to another locally based trainer named Richard. Dick Mandela, Hall of Famer, set to join us live. We're going to take a break. You're listening to the breeders cup countdown presented by hillendale farms on HR N a 5 time greatest stakes winning earner of almost $3 million. Aired re studs collected is the all time leading earner by city zip. Winner of the great one Pacific classic.

"Impressively by the brilliant golden scents getting the job done. Welcome back to the breeders cup countdown presented by hillendale farm Bobby Newman alongside Jude feld. In the grandstand overlooking the racetrack at the beautiful del mar thoroughbred club, Jude, if we could have these exact seats for every breeder's cup that was ever run, we'd be very happy. Absolutely. I'll just put them on my debit card. I don't know if you're debit cards. I'm sure it doesn't get these are like these are like $1 million seats. These are fantastic. We're getting to see all of the equine stars going bias in the morning we saw a lot of the European runners trained by Charlie appleby and Brian me and go earlier. The Aidan O'Brien contingent is in their procession around the racetrack right now. They're going in a pack of 7 and it's amazing watching these aid and O'Brien runners because all of the exercise riders are clad exactly the same. You know, they're wearing black, dark colors with a kind of a maroon hat that's very easy to spot, they kind of jog around the racetrack in tighter quarters, which I guess helps them get used to the tight quarters that they used to racing in over in Europe. And the ones that are out on the track right now for O'Brien bolshoe ballet, mogul, broom, Japan, mother earth. And love who bob mentioned in the previous segment is one that he really, really likes. It's really fun seeing these horses that we never get to see out in front of us and really it seems like just an arms length away. Yeah, it's an amazing thing to watch. It's pretty cool and they're doing everything like they do at home. Well, when we came out of rape, we heard the replay of golden scents winning the 2014 breeders cup dirt mile, and a gentleman who's hoping to win the 2021 breeders cup dirt mile is joining us right now. Trainer Richard Baltus, who sends out both ginobili in the dirt mile and going to Vegas in the Philly and merit turf. Richard, thanks for joining us this morning. Thank you. It's exciting times. I know that you train here in Southern California regularly. So you still have to deal with the quote unquote regular happenings, opening day yesterday, racing today as well. Must be a little bit exciting though knowing that you've got these gigantic races on the line and you've got chances in both of these races. Yeah, I mean, that's what it's all about, I think you're fortunate enough for your horse to get here. We're fortunate enough to get a couple win in your end, so that's even better. And yeah, the horses are doing well, but obviously it's just the breeder's cup, so it's world championships and it truly is world championship racing. You know, we just saw. I think we just saw those ain't no Brian horses go by and if you really look at the whole thing, it's just amazing, isn't it that they can everybody comes here for one couple days and come all over the world and top trainers in the world, top horses in the world. That's awesome. Yeah. It really is. And the weather is perfect for horses from. They seem like they love it. You know that it's cooler here at del mar. It's not like in the summer where it can be on the humid side and get warmer from times. It's in the high 50s, low 60s in the mornings. It's only supposed to be in the mid 60s during the races, both tomorrow and Saturday. So everyone looks like they're making a good appearance. And horse that's made a tremendous appearance there at delmar, the last few times he's run here is ginobili. I don't know what you guys have figured out with ginobili. But his last two races here at del mar, one in allowance race and one in the great two paddle Brian were phenomenal and certainly make him a major player in the dirt mile on Saturday. Yeah, I mean, he's a lot of reasons why. He kind of actually surprised me when he won here when he ran that big race, but that being said, it was a horse that we always thought a lot of when I bought him as a yearling and then he was training really, really good, going into his first race and I think he just ran a dud at Los alamitos and I was like, oh, wow, what was that? And then came back here at dumbar and he won his second start with for aunt jeru on the lead wire to iron in impressive fashion. And any he had some stakes company races, he ran against the dowel and just started getting some little physical issues and a gal with him and we decided to stop on him and very minor surgery. On his ankles, you know, just minor stuff. And then we gave him four months off. And when he came back, he was just a much fresher sounder, happier, horse, and, you know? We put the blinkers on him. So that's a little changes. Yeah, a lot of little stuff and stretch them out and now he ran two great two very big races in a row, and, you know, I decided just to run them here. I mean, he's trained most of this. Most of his training has been assembly ray downs, and he's ran very well off that track. He's three for three at del mar, so now he's running against the big boys. That's got to make you feel confident three for three of them are, right? I mean, that's a track. I mean, I think that means a little something. I mean, obviously he's running against better horses, but it was the way he the way he won his last two races. He's a trained incredible actually trying to slow him down a lot last couple of works, so leave something in the tank, but how do you see the race setting up for you? I think what we're doing with the three holes so we'll probably just end up going with him. That's like we're not gonna take anything away from the horse. There's some speed on the outside the average horse. We'll see, you know, he's kind of said to me the other day. He's going, but who knows? I mean, life is good. You know, it'll be three to 5. A lot of speed in there. And some really talented horses, but ginobili's last two races are phenomenal and certainly point them out as if he can get the right trip in front of those one, sorry, run one of those races again. He looks basically like he's one of the ones in that spot and he looks great he's looked great his last two starts to tell Mark, you've got a really nice feeling going to Vegas going in the very next race the breeders cup filly and mere turf. She's coming off three consecutive wins, including one in the grade one or jail drive one in the grade two John maybe here at del mar. She's likes it here at del mar as well. Obviously, a little tougher competition on Saturday than what she's seen in those local graded stakes. For sure, yeah. That's what we're talking about. We're talking about the world championships and there are some really super talented horses coming over from Europe and I mean..

"I'm not sure if torna was going to like this turf course as much as she did keenland. She's an incredibly honest, high class Phillies, I expect her to run her raise, but what is she in the morning line? She's pretty sure. 9 to 5. Yeah, that's way too short. For me, I take a massive stand against Walton street who also when it would bind very easily and put up a huge figure in doing so. I don't think that Walton street, I'm not afraid of Walton street. Ado Bryan has broom in here. He's not hopeless, he set the pace in the ark. I'm not a huge fan. There's too long shots in here that I love. I think June and I both agree that cis the hand that the German cold has an outstanding chance if you rewatch this second behind torquay or tasso, and Germany last time, he is a very nice horse, he's very lightly raised. It's Christian. And Hank grew. Faced fantastic connections. And when the German sun horses, they usually they usually mean business. I just think he's really cool words that I think really the horse that might be overlooked that's going to be a huge price as you beer for godolphin. He is a horse that's peeking right now he's been steadily improving throughout the season. His figure looks low, he ran a 94 last time, but believe me he's a rapidly improving three year old gelding. He's going to love it here, and William buch, whose good dolphins number one writer, that's where he ends up. Bob really appreciate you taking the time this morning to help us out with a lot of the European invaders. They have several more things to say. Let's go. I tried to get it all in there. We really appreciate it. We need all the help we can get there so many European invaders here this morning that we really appreciate. Thanks so much for joining us. And best of luck this weekend. Yes, same to you guys. Yeah. It looks good. Let's get the long shutdown. We need one or two. That's right. We'll make it happen. It's our international racing aficionado joining us this morning.

"In 1988 under Freddie had, and wins at Churchill downs. Welcome back to the breeders cup countdown presented by hillendale farms, Bobby Newman and Jude feld. Pleased to be joined now by our good friend and international racing aficionado. Bob and a standover here live at del mar bob. Welcome to the show. We need a lot of help with these zeros. Oh you'll be fine. The only thing I can. There's a lot of them. There's a lot of and we're seeing a lot of them go by. We saw a lot of the Charlie appleby runners actually getting some good breezes on the not official workouts, but really stretching their legs on the turf this morning. We've seen a lot of the other European invaders just kind of trotting around the main track going the opposite direction, cisa hand, just came by for the second straight time. And like most overlooks is for him. We're not going to overlook anything. You know what? We just made my day. We need a lot of help. So, you know what? There are a lot of European invaders. This year. The Lasix, a lot of purse money. And you know what? The Euros for years have done very, very well in breeders cup races, not only the turf races, but some surprises on the dirt, of course, our Kong is the one that really shake out but do got the job done. House buster and the sprint was at 1991, I believe. Absolutely. I watched this danger would have won. They had a little bit of a jumping incident. They came here. But mendelsohn, another one, ran greater. So there have been several, but as far as the turf races go, you know, they're loaded top to bottom both Friday and Saturday with invaders from places other than North America. So let's just start with Friday. Because a lot of us don't get to see a lot of these races. You know, we can watch tapes, we have a little bit of an advantage now with like YouTube. Where we can go back and watch 20 years ago, we were just kind of trusting what we heard what the word was on horses like dancing brave and trampolino and horses like that. So let's start with Friday. We've got three turf races for the two year old starting with the turf sprint. Anybody catch your eye horses that we should pay attention to? Yeah, I'll start right off with a one horse Twilight jet. I saw him race, I was at newmarket on October 8th. He has been a very busy two year old campaign after the race, Michael calhan, they won the race easily. And roach, he is a very quick and durable son of Twilight son, and Michael Callaghan said he's the best where she's ever trained. Now he's relatively new trainer but he's trained some very good horses. I knew he drew the one halt hole that's a negative for for many two year olds. I don't think of seasoned as this horse is that will affect him at all. I think he has a fantastic chance. The four horse vertiginous. Whose train by Brian, of course, won the breeder's cup turf with red rocks, and Frankie wrote a Churchill, wasn't it? Yeah. I won't forget that thing. This is kind of interesting. He's bred to like, you know, firm turf. He's been very consistent. He's only won the one race. I think the most consistent and reliable Euro in the race is the 7 horse armor. He's extremely honest. He's trained by Richard Hans ridden by Ryan Moore. He's the son of no name never. He had a very unappealing trip in his last start. He was drawn on the wrong side of the course and I sort of noticed that he really sort of battled on and ran a good race. So the €2 I like in here both who are decent prices are the one Twilight jet and the 7 armor. You know the inside here in turf sprints of really good posture. Yeah, much better than like Saratoga where you almost throw the horses out of the rail. Yeah, I wanted to ask you something Jude. Don't they normally run 8 horses and 5 for long term faces aren't they running 12? Yes. That's true. They limit it to 8 in the turf sprint. Yeah. The funny thing is about this term, of course, the speed does very well in the sprints. The closers are awesome in the routes here. It doesn't matter how slow the pace is. They come running, you really need to be good to go gate to wire in or turf route here. We saw it actually with yesterday's opening day races. The closers just were great in the turf routes, but the sprints, the speed has a chance. Horseshoe didn't mention that's been very consistent in his career as hierarchy. There are some people that like hierarchy with those Shane Murphy, what are your thoughts on her? I am. Yeah, it's a really nice mask. A lot of a milk at mcnair is bred to be very quick. I think the fact that the horse is turning back to 5 furlongs is very interesting that auto make appeal. I think he's got a chance. I mean, let's face it, this is a very, very tough raise. I mean, Wesley, the American horses are very good in here, and in this 5 for a long way out here as you said on firm turf on a really appeal to really quick horses, so it ought to be right and Wesley ward's ballpark. I do think that I do think of all these horses. I think Gobert goes who's David lock name also comes from the UK. I think he's a little bit overmatched. I think he's already run his best races this season the three go bears go. Hierarchies interesting to me, but I really sort of greatly prefer armor and I really do like Twilight jet who's going to be a pretty large price. There are several Euros in both the juvenile Phillies turf and the juvenile turf. What are your thoughts on those two races Friday? I love a horse in the juvenile Phillies turf, which goes off as Reyes aid on Friday's card at four ten. I really love the French invader the 12 horse male of ath, who is trained by Francis Henri graffard and shanti, and will be ridden by Ryan Moore for the first time as only ever sprinted is also by mamos whose very successful stay and has a very stout pedigree and seems like she has been crying out for more distance all season, and if you watch or raise which you can do on YouTube and on the front, the Franco website, when she won a group to at shanti on October 9th, over 6 furlongs, she obviously was the 6 furlongs and heavy ground. She's very versatile in regards to the going, the firm turf shouldn't bother at all. And I think she has a very, very strong chance to run a huge race. I think the two turns and the added distance will really help her. One Philly that I saw over there that really impressed me is the 13 also a closer a very good-looking Philly named meson whose by the incredibly popular say in syene out of a Galileo mare, so that's two turns all the way. That's James Ferguson and the trains in new market with ocean Murphy the British champion writer riding riding or ease the routine rider for the owner guitar racing. So she looked well. She's very attractive and she ran a nice race in the Phillies mile. So I love malavath in there and I really like the 13 Miz and son. There are €4.

My sister Nat now going bias for trainer Chad Brown as well. We're going to take a break when we come back. We'll be joined by international racing aficionado and friend of the program. Bob neston, to talk about some of the European invaders that we're going to see over the next two days here at the breeders cup. You're listening to the breeders cup countdown presented by hillendale Florence on HR N multiple grade one winner, charlatan. Winner of the great one Malibu by four and a half lengths.

"breeders cup" Discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast

"We had beautiful weather yesterday a blue skies and some nice fluffy clouds to assembly Bob Ross. You do. And we've just completed a renovation break here at delmar, the tractors went by. They've cleared and now there are several horses coming back onto the racetrack, including this year's Kentucky Derby winner, Medina Spirit, who is making his way down past around the Clubhouse turn to get to us on the main track. As time goes by, a baffert entrant in this year's breeders cup distaff just passing in front of us. We're going to see a lot of the European runners coming out. We've saw a lot of the Euros already this morning in the previous session. In fact, a lot of the Charlie appleby runners were out. We saw master of the seas. He looked great breezing on the turf, Walton street, albar, the space blues, who's the morning line favorite for this year's breeders cup mile. Went screaming by on the turf, ya beer was also out cachet out this morning vertiginous for Brian mien was also out. Measles sand was out so while a lot of the Euros to buy legend rather to Bowie legend, also out. But there are going to be more to come. We're going to get another wave of the Euros. Mostly doing some maintenance on the main track as they get ready. In addition, hot rod Charlie has made his way out onto the main track, he actually backtracked. He's right in front of us now. Making the turn heading back the correct direction. All the serious work is out of the way for these runners. They're really just stretching their legs. And getting in their final feel good mornings before their big days mala fat who's going to be a major player in the distaff also right in front of us for Todd Fletcher. Yeah. She's been looking great every morning, beautiful Philly and hot rod Charlie's been galloping like a freight train every day, so we expect more of the same from both of those and this is the nervous time for the trainers they don't want anything to happen to their horses, of course, in their just thankful when everybody gets home safe and looking good. And thankfully, we haven't had any news since yesterday, by the way, Chris Davis has American sanctuary parading out in front of us right now. He'll be one of the longer shots in the field in the breeders cup juvenal this year. There goes Medina Spirit and a nice, easy gallop past the finish line. And he looked really good yesterday is really not doing a whole lot today other than just getting a little stretch of the legs. But Medina Spirit going to be a major player in this year's breeders cup classic. I have a question for you, Jude. All right. And it's a tough question. With all that's happened surrounding Medina Spirit this year. He is technically The Kentucky Derby winner. He's innocent until proven guilty. If he were to win the breeders cup classic, what are the chances that the eclipse voters would vote him horse of the year? That's a very good question because, you know, eclipse voting, even though it's done by people in the know it's still a popularity contest as our most votes. So I don't know for sure if the bulk of the voters would vote for him. I mean, they probably should, if he does that, then he probably is the horse of the year. But, you know, people have different feelings about what's gone on this year. With the trainer and, you know, how everything's panned out. So I would say it's about 50 50 that he could be horse of the year. We'll see what happens. Yeah, it's a tough call, because usually it would be a slam dunk. If you win The Kentucky Derby and when the breeders cup classic, that's it, hands down. But this is a different year. And obviously there's a lot of popularity involved. A horse that's going to have a major say and whether not Medina Spirit or hot rod Charlie wins the breeders club classic is essential quality. He just came trotting bias, the opposite direction and he'll probably make the turn and get to stretch his legs. We saw some of the Euro contingent backtracking cispa hand who I know was one that you're very interested in has made good appearances. And you know what? The weather has been conducive to where all of the horses like it. We really have not seen horses that look like they're not enjoying it out here this week at del mar. Yeah, I was explaining that to somebody yesterday that was asking me about del March as I trained here for 20 years and you know, I told them horses just seemed to perk up when they come down here. I don't know if it's being close to the ocean, the negative ions in the air, even the people have a sense of well-being when they come to delmar. So it's easy for the horses to feel good and look good and train good. So it's a place that really seems to rejuvenate horses, especially the older horses, they really like it down here, so I'm happy to be a dumbar. Folks horse racing's world championships are here. You can bet the breeders cup risk free with TV G that's right new TV G players can get started with a risk free bet up to $300. That means you'll get up to $300.

"And I'm doing the box exact essential quality and max player with something that Naomi Tim or Pete gives as an outsider. And when Pete comes along then it says max player, that gives me even more confidence. But I'm expecting a pace collapse. I think Tim is Pete is it fair to say you're expecting a pace collapse? Yeah, I mean, there's a lot of different ways this can play out. But the way I'm going to play it is for the collapse, like you said. Okay. But you don't agree with that angle to support those who don't. You're not on the. I mean, it's plausible for sure. I'm not going to argue with the guys here. I see that too. I still think that Nick's goal could be fast enough to kind of clear and perhaps get comfortable and maybe has some pressure, but I think he's that good that he can take them there. However, for that scenario, I like hot rod Charlie. He can just lay off it. He doesn't need the lead. He doesn't need to be on top of that. He can spy the two dueling if that's what's going to happen. And then he has to jump on all the clothes, 'cause he's not tactical. And he did pass horses quite gamely in the high school. I mean, hot rod Charlie has been around all year, Kentucky to be third, second in about my essential quality, and that was a stretch too. The two of those. And the one park, that's a track that absolutely suits a runner like a central quality. I think delmar doesn't Sue essential quality. So if I have to take one of the two and I was very lucky to see them in person that day dueling down the stretch, I like hot brownie better here. Okay. Go to blinkist back on him as well. Yeah. Put the blinkers on. I thought it was interesting. Yeah, I must admit, I kind of questioned that a little bit. So that's the only thing I really don't have an answer on. I don't think he needs it, but okay. Perhaps the drifting, perhaps keeping straight, but again, I'm not doggone you, so. Yeah, that was the theory. I talked to some Friends that gains weight team and you know, based on the sort of greenness or whatever you want to call it that you don't in the lane the last two. They thought that it's a very short blinker. They thought would help. He's worked hot rods worked well with it. So I think it's an unusual situation, you know, adding at a blinks and off a win in a grade one. I think it makes sense for the horse. I mean, there's a lot of ways you can go in here. I would not be surprised at all to see him run a bake when I just preferred others more. It was forward he might get caught eating a little bit too close, but I mean, I got to argue with anybody who puts up hot rod Charlie. I mean, it's a very talented horse, but he's improving three year old late in the year. We've seen some good things from that in the breeders cup before. Yeah, he was interesting to me as well, but he was another one of those horses that I thought. And this is not me having a go at you and Naomi. It's just a debate. It's just a topic. He was another one of those horses that I thought was going to contribute to the pace collapse. And I just thought it makes sense. Okay, look at its brutal juvenile. He came from 6 lines off it, only lose by three quarter length central quality. This horse doesn't need to be right there. He doesn't need to be pressing. He can go for the bad look as of recent. That's what he's done. Press a bit more. Yeah. It doesn't need to. You said it behind me doing a spirit to be about four 50 if I remember correctly not Darby. So yeah, he doesn't have to be right there, don't see. He was prominent. No, yeah. He was sat in behind them. So it wasn't smashing it up on the front. No, he could do that. He could just sit in behind Nick's go and I don't think there's any other chance for me in the spirit. I think the spirit just got to go. I think Johnny Velasquez has got eyeball next go and say, all right, let's do it. Let's go. I don't think that they'll have any other chance with them. And that's why I would be totally in agreement repeat that he's going to just melt and fall all the way back through the field. Q him winning by 17 links now. So let me just wrap this up then with us all agreeing on the trifecta and bucks exactly that we're going to do. And I think it's essentially essential quality, hot rod Charlie, max player. I'm going to go to central quality. I'm going to put the dicks go in there because I think you'll run big wins or draw I think you were on the big and then Peter's talk me in the next plaid. So they'd be my three. Yeah, and I was keen on max player as well. So max player, hot rod Charlie, essential quality and Nick's goal for Naomi. And Naomi's with Nick sco and hot rod Charlie and we make a boatload of gravy with the box exact and the trifecta. We're off to Dubai. All right, best bets, Naomi, leaders off, who is your best bet of the breeders cup? 20, 21. Oh, this is a tough one. I think I'm gonna stick with emirati Ana and everybody's got to have strength. I really do love him. So yeah, maybe sentimental value, but yeah, let's go with him. Sentimental value when you're talking about a 7 to one shot. Tim Carroll. I'm going to be a little bit boring number one day number one in the British country with altair sprint. I really like to basically worldwide Lee Jane on the same night, tis the bomb best to each way play. Okay. Pete. I'll give you a reverse forecast here. And the breeders cup fillion mayor periphery number 7 on Saturday, love is all you need. Love and.

"Who comes first, though? Is it big dickers in February? By the way, Naomi. Naomi muted her mic. Comfortable. All right, so no, I didn't know I'm trying to not interrupt you guys just go from there because it seems that you're very much of like, oh, I'd be a professional. I do it perfectly. Yeah, Brad, we can prescribe it. That's because I have a split personality on air, I'm very polite. I try not to swear, but off era like everything. I just don't think before I speak. So I feel like I have that sort of personality thing going on. Yeah, that's true. I've enjoyed my time on the final. It's been a wonderful week. It is true though. There are Steven doors who envy Naomi's ability to swear. That is absolutely true. We just throw me under the bus now feet. No, to be fair. I know Naomi through the podcast and through WhatsApp calls and facetimes and stuff like that. Sometimes with our cat in the background, my cat's in the background. Every now and again, but Naomi does swear like a hairy ass docker after 12 points. I mean, that's just me now. Oh no, no. No, no, no. No. Never. You could have just gone with docker. That would have done. Okay, so in my defense, in my own language, it does. I do not swear. It just doesn't count in another language. It doesn't. Well, I think that shisa is great. I've been saying for over a year. Actually, I've been saying it for longer than that, because I said it on air one day. And on talks board. And one of the guys went, yeah, you're probably going to get away with that, but I wouldn't do it again. And. I used it in regular normal life instead of saying the other word. And I also started going put, which you exactly exactly knew. Yeah, so yeah, so that's my workaround. Instead. No, no. She note. You know. In our defense though, they say that people that swear are the most honest people because we actually speak our minds. Fuck, yeah, we do. You obviously got four of the most on those people on the Planet Earth. Podcasts. Right. Let's ask a couple of questions. First of all, we've got three, very important questions, I think at the gate. First of all, this is a breeder's cup that has no Lasix. And it's also breeders cup that doesn't have a bar buffet? Naomi? Easy question for you. Yes. How does the racing community feel about the fact that Barbie is taking part? I.

"Let's switch back to Friday for a minute. Time to party. Very consistent. What's your impressions? Yeah, he's a cool little horse. We bought him for not a lot of money at OBS. I don't know 50 70. I can't remember. And he he tries really hard. He's got a lot of ability and we ran a good second to one timer who I think is the second or third choice in the race and we were kind of gaining on him. And he won broke his maiden here at del mar in the summer. So I think it's a very tough race and everything is going to have to fall into place, especially from the ten hole. We're going to have to get the right trip and everything is going to have to fall fall the right way. But I think he certainly belongs in the race and he's doing very well. Speaking with trainer Pete Miller, who sends out 5 runners in this year's breeders cup, before we let you go, you mentioned that flavian Pratt is the regular writer of mo for. So he also was going to ride time to party. When you have somebody like Pratt who's written so much for you and is written these horses many times, are you still game planning or do you trust that he knows exactly where these horses need to be? A little bit about, you know, I definitely trust that he knows what to do and where to be because he's extremely well prepared and reads the racing form very well. But at the same time, I don't want to just leave that to chance. So I definitely let him know what I see. And after that, you could just kind of say how the race looks to. How it looks to come up, but once the gates open, it's really on the jocks to work it work it out from there. So we'll just game plan a little bit. Who's the speed? Where we're likely to be placed. And then I'll leave it up to him. We really appreciate you taking the time this morning to join us not only do you have the breeders cup coming up in just a few days, but of course opening day at del mar and I know that's always a big day in the Miller household and we wish you the best not only this weekend, but throughout the delmar meat and in the next year, thanks for joining us on the breeders cup countdown. It's my pleasure guys and have a great breeder's cup. All right, you two, my friend, Peter Miller, trainer of several breeders cup runners this year in the world championships. He's got time to party going into juvenile sprint on Friday. Then four runners on Saturday highlighted by CZ rocket and the sprint and mo Forza in the mile four is probably going to be one of the favorites in that race. I think he's the second choice on the morning line to the Euro space blues who's been ultra impressive across the pond and but mo for's has a little bit of a home court advantage, Jude. He loves it here at del mar and when he's good. He's very good. And del mar is one of those courses where if you have an affinity for it, it really helps. Now he's just got to get the right trip. You know, you do everything you can in the morning with these horses and you get them well prepared and game plan with the riders and then you just have to hope things fall into place. Yeah. Well, that's it. Racing luck. It's number one. Yeah, it's a very common term. It's more important than it's amazing how we take for granted how hard it is to get the horses the trips that they need to have to have the best chance of winning. Yeah, well, we were talking with sheree. Everything matters. I mean, it just never ends. You have to check every box, and then you have to get lucky. Not only do you have to be well prepared, but you have to get lucky. That's why it's so hard. That's why our game is so great because you can't just do the work and get paid for it. You have to get lucky. And let's face it, these are big fields, not everyone's going to get the trip that they're hoping for. In these races, there's going to be a lot of sad faces. I was mentioned one time about a trip that I had in the turf race that seemed to me and Charlie with EM said. Son. You're going to have a lot of bad trips on the turf. Don't worry about it. Just go have dinner and come out the next morning. And he was right. I mean, I learned it was such a great lesson for me to not let it affect your day. Because it's going to happen all the time. Turf racing is tricky. And you can't get too upset if you have a bad trip. Well, take another break. Come back more here in the breeders cup countdown. This is the world's this is the horse racing radio network. Your exclusive home for the breeders cup world championships. Where did essential quality, la, she dares the devil CZ rocket silver state and several others begin their journey to the breeders cup? Oakland, of course.

He wasn't favored, Jude, and either of those races. Yeah, which is amazing because he was pretty solid, especially at that time. And we are working to get Peter Miller on with us. He will join us momentarily. He's going to send out 5 runners in this year's breeders cup of events and perennially. Either the leading trainer or one of the leading trainers when they race here at delmar voyage, super spectacular in both of his wins and we're pleased now to be joined by Roy H's trainer and trainer of several breeders cup entrance this year. Pete Miller Pete, welcome to the breeders cup countdown with Bobby and Jude. Hey guys, good to be here. I saw you in the paddock schooling yesterday. You had mo forsen in there. Yeah, yeah, now we're doing the best we can to get these horses schooled and ready to go Friday and Saturday. Pete, we're back on opening day at del mar, of course, this is a place that is near and dear to your heart. You've won several training titles here at del mar, your horses seem to love it when they get this home course advantage, not that far from San Luis ray, where a lot of them train. But breeders cup is a different time. You've got one horse in the Friday races, four of them in on Saturday. And is there a little bit of a different regiment that you have to go through when it comes to the breeders cup runners here at del mar as opposed to everyone else in your barn? Not really. Honestly, no, it's the same same program. We bring them down and train them here as long as we can. We have a barn here in the summertime during del mar and in the November fall meet. And I'm not just kind of business as usual just another race, just a bigger purse. Well, that's certainly a factor of the person, but the prestige alone can carry a long way. Some of these races really can make a difference if you're going to stud or you've got a brood mirror or whatever. It's important to win these races when you can. You've done a great job of doing that. You have quite a few breeders got points. Yes. I mean, it definitely I don't want to undersell understate the breeders cop. It's our Super Bowl and our World Series and I've been fortunate to win 5 of them. But at the same time, you don't want to change what works and you don't want to get out of your normal routine. So we're basically just trying to do everything that we normally do and get the horses as fit. And sound and healthy as we can and then just hope hope for good racing luck. Talking with trainer Peter Miller, he sends out 5 runners in this year's breeders cup world championships, one of them on Friday, time to party in the juvenile turf sprint, four runners on Saturday, proud Emma in the Philly and Merrill sprint commander in the turf sprint, CZ rocket in the sprint mo Forza in the mile and speaking of those last two CZ rocket and mo Forza. These are horses that have been around for a few years now. I know they're both near and dear to your heart. Tell us about their paths from where they were last year at this time to getting to this year's breeders cup. Yeah. Well, last year, Moe was prepping and he reinjured his dispensary and that was really a tough pill to swallow. But he's doing really well this year and he loves del mar and we've got arguably the hottest rider in the world, labian Pratt. So I feel maybe maybe it's his year. You know, he's a horse that just every time he goes out he fires. And what's it like for you? Do you feel a lot of pressure when he runs because everybody always expects him to win? Yeah. Yeah, definitely do. You know, you know, I got the he's one 8 of his last 9 and he's got a legion of fans because Barry Abrams. We all we all love Barry and this berry and so we've got that extra pressure and so yeah it's definitely it's a little nerve racking every time he runs, but 8 out of the last 9 have turned out the right way. Well, one thing I got to tell you, there's really no bigger more mo Forza fan than I know in Bobby Newman. I mean he loves mo Forza. So you'll be well represented on the radio for big breaks. Yeah, well, he's a great horse. He's awesome and he's beautiful and he's classy and he's fun to watch run. He's a horse that looks like in the stretch that his strides cover twice as much ground as everyone else is. I don't understand. Even that last race that he won out at San Anita the city of hope mile, the pace was against in that day, they were going slowly. He looked like he had way too much ground to make up at the top of the stretch. And then he just decides to run and that's the end of it. Now on the other side of things, CZ rocket has not always been a wonder from the get go. In fact, this is a horse that you and owner Tom Kegel claimed last year and really turned his career around. Yeah. You know, very fortunate, Tom picked the horse and we claimed him. And he was a bad leader. And once we got that under control, everything else is falling into play. He's rocket has had a little bit of a different year this year than he did last year. Of course, he finished second in the breeders cup sprint to whitmore last year. Came and turned the tables on whitmore on whitmore's home track at Oakland earlier this year, but he hasn't found the winner's circle since. He's not running bad races. Seconds and thirds, but he's not winning as maybe a lot of people hoped he would has there been any sort of a difference or I've noticed that a lot of those non victories have come in races where he doesn't get to run with Lasix. Is this simply a horse who needs that medication? Well, he certainly it's a hindrance not having it and I really do think it's a shame for all the horses that they're trying to take away our only way to stop them from bleeding, but that's another story for another day. But yeah, I think the Lasix has been part of it, but also I think the tracks out in California are very speed biased. They're very deep and tiring, which makes it very difficult to make up ground. So they've been playing against him. I'm hopeful that the breeders cup being here and it being fall and the weather cooler and they shorter that it'll be more of a fair racetrack that will give everyone a chance..

"Saddle. No. Let it go. You know chuck he'll never let it go. Well, why don't we talk to chuck about the very first job was for my father on the racetrack as a standard Brett and I was two years old. So now he's like an old fart. I don't believe it or not, and this is not about when chuck was in college. He was a tall, skinny, athletic guy. He does not. He's still taught. I'm so far. He's still a guy. The other parts of kind of as kind of with all of us, they've gone different direction as we've gotten older. He's a great guy. Yeah. He's and he has nothing but good things to say and he wouldn't text that to me if he wasn't there. What did that dorm room look like? I can tell you that I put a one iron through the wall after the trailblazers did not cover when Kevin Duckworth and Clyde drexel couldn't hit free throws in the late game one. I figured out that. Yeah. No, no, not at all. Should we really appreciate you taking the time and point to Robbie's look great these last few mornings seen here on in the race track. Hope she gets out of the gate well on Friday. And you never know. I mean, she's only raced twice. There's no reason she can't continue to improve and she really wasn't that far behind echo Zulu last time out. No, and it looks on paper. She is very ratable. She's very easy to ride both in the mornings and in the races. So if she happens to get out of the gate a step slow, there's gonna be plenty of on paper that appears to be plenty of pace for her to run into. Yeah, we race sets up good for her. I like her. I think she's got a good chance. Torabi, postposition number four in the breeders cup juvenile Philly's this Friday here at del mar goes as the 7th race on the Friday card trainer should read, sending out to Robbie, it's her first breeders cup starter on her own as a trainer and she's winning races and bunches clicking at about a 20% clip overall. So best of luck Friday and look forward to senior horses run all winter. Thank you so much. Thanks so much. Joining us on the breeders cup countdown. We're going to take a break when we come back. We will speak with another trainer who's involved in the breeders cup this weekend. Peter Miller, he's going to send out 5 runners in the breeders cup races and he's also excited about racing returning to del mar because his horses love it here where the turf meets the surf.

"By the way, she dares she dares the devil now walking out in front of us, one of the Brad Cox contingent, and she's going to be a major player in the distal Saturday of a neck bode and looks like she's happy to be here in these cooler conditions at del mar, which you don't usually see in the summertime, but for this fall meet, we get them. Jeff, I know something that's near and dear to your heart as the thoroughbred aftercare alliance. Tell us what's going on. What's your affiliation with them? So I'm on the board, the vice president of the TAA and we're excited to once again be the official aftercare partner of the breeders cup. So you're going to see the thoroughbred after Caroline's prominently throughout the breeders cup with a few races that were part involved with sponsoring and presenting. And you'll see booth stationed here during the course of the breeders cup where folks can come and talk to people about what the thoroughbred after Carol Lyons does. And at the end of the day, it's all about looking after the welfare of these beautiful thoroughbred racehorses. And so, you know, it's become the responsibility of all stakeholders in the industry, recognizing that when horses are done on the racetrack, they need a safe, viable follow on career. And so with the TAA does, is it handles all of the accreditation? So making sure that these facilities that we have throughout the country can take these horses and put them in a safe haven, both for just retirement and or retraining repurposing these horses. And then raising funds in an equitable fashion so that you can distribute to these facilities and help them make sure that they can do things the right way to look after these sources. So this is the racing showcase event. And so for the TAA to be the partner making all of those aware, it's a great opportunity. Is there a pledge deal with breeders capital where people could donate part of the purse or that kind of thing? Absolutely. You know, as I mentioned, you know, it's both accreditation and raising funds. So you can certainly visit the thoroughbred after a Cara alliance website and also get information here on track and at any time that we've had a participants running in the breeders cup that have generously pledged portions of their earnings to the TAA, which of course then gets distributed out to these organizations. So it's a great opportunity to take advantage of that. Is this something where the TAA goes out to owners and trainers and continually provides information reminder let's face it, not all of these horses are going to go on to be stallions or brood mares. Where you're going to owners or there is information very easily available to owners and trainers out there. They know that, hey, when this $20,000 climbers is done racing, we have a spot for. Well, the good news is racetracks have become great partners of the whole issue of after care. And so like, for instance, here in California, you have karma, who is one of the bigger organizations. Helping us afford that opportunity for after care and working with various farms and facilities that do this. So yes, it's all about communication and connecting the dots for people to make sure that they know that there's an avenue. There's a resource out there available to them so that they can position place horses. And so we're constantly trying to get the word out and making folks aware with the TAA sort of sitting as an umbrella organization to help with all of that facilitating that process across the board. Go ahead. It's not easy to do that. I mean, there's a lot of people involved and you have to make sure that everybody's on the same page as far as what we're going to do with this horse. The horse can do as far as athletically if somebody wants to use it for a show horse or whatever somebody wants to use a horse for a lawn ornament. I mean, I used to find spots for my old horses all the time before this was even popular. Sure. 40 years ago. I had a horse that was park ranger horse at Yosemite. Weddings and bar mitzvahs. I had a lady wanna do a lawn ornament horse, like she didn't know anything about horses, but she went to a class to learn how to take care of them, and a lawn ornament horse. Wait. What? I trained a horse mask for Vic Tayback called hanto, right? He won here at del mar. And he pulled the suspensory and he wasn't going to be able to be used as a writing horse. But he was a beautiful chestnut horse, big, strong horse. And she was looking for a horse to put in her front yard. She had bought a little farm at somewhere. So hanto had this great life. He had this lady that fed him carrots and took him outside for walks and stuff. Until found a beautiful home. He found a beautiful home, right? But you're right about that, dude. You know, not all horses come off the race track the same way. Some have sound issues, some have various, whatever issues. And so there are numerous facilities. And some places, their primary job or objective is they just they're a sanctuary for a horse that maybe can't necessarily be retrained or be used for a jumping horse or a show horse. So it does require a lot of money and it requires a lot of due diligence on the part of making sure that we could talk for hours about how much went into accrediting and making sure that there's a very detailed thorough process in checklist of requirements that go into becoming an accredited facility. And so the TAA oversees all of that process. And we have some wonderful organizations north of 80 throughout the country that are helping with all of this. And we're constantly looking for more facilities and again, at the end of the day, all of us who enjoy and are involved with the wonderful word of horse racing. It's our responsibility because it is in the end all about the racehorse. Jeff really appreciate you taking the time this morning, not only did we get to talk about snapper Sinclair and the thoroughbred aftercare alliance and talk about Kentucky down, you got to hear the word the name Vic Tayback.

"breeders cup" Discussed on Racing Rundown: A Horse Racing Podcast

"Wants to get a horse who's probably not included in this But because of that was only able to manage a fourth in english his horse. that's kind of forgotten. Didn't never get an eclipse award for. All he did was allotted impressive stuff or two point. Five million dollars but injuries in circumstances kept him out breeders cup winner's circle. And i'm gonna move onto my next towards which is actually the last european i went. I did go pretty heavy with europeans. Didn't do all europeans. But i did have my fair share in this. The next worst is actually one that the story of her is very weird. I'm about siadati a philly for clive. Britain who arrogant talking about this before the recording clyde britain and andrei fob and patrick biancone would have gone back and forth with each other with the the races that exist today. The breeders cup had existed at the inception she. He would have had multiple winners going up against multiple winners from andre. Fob those guys but Side dadis different kinds of horse. They talked about routers. That didn't win because they were put. There wasn't a race for them. There was a race for siadati Breeders cup mile aside dada very good year in nineteen ninety-three as a three year. Old filly going back to nine hundred ninety two as a two year old. She was two-time group stakes winner. In two year old stakes over in england she was the one thousand guineas winner that year. And then one. Another group one at And then was fourth in the queen elizabeth stakes in her final start before the breeders cup but she was owned by shaykh mohammad and at the time shaykh muhammad decided to overruled clyde britain and said that she was going to run in the cup. Sprint of the plan was originally to run her in the breeders cup mile and that was a very eventful breeders cup. Miles we've talked about there have been horses. We've talked about on this list in that cup mile but you know siadati was a really good philly in one thousand nine ninety three and that was when she was at her best charan in the cup sprint instead That was the decision that was made. That was when the breeder's cup sprint was on dirt and unfortunately it did not go well for her. She ran twelve. The had she been running in the british mile. Maybe doesn't win. Maybe does win but definitely runs a lot better than that. Twelve place finish. Nineteen ninety-four wasn't really her best year. She didn't any wins in one thousand nine hundred four. She came back in one thousand. Nine hundred five was a group one winner she on the sussex at goodwood but that was her only one of the year. She did come over for the breeders cup mile and You know did run a good third in there but she was well beaten in their nine lengths combined and was a nose away from not finishing in the money so certainly the remainder of her career wasn't great but it had she run in the breeders cup mile in nineteen ninety one when she was at her best. I think she could have been a really good worse than one that we may talk about her among the phillies iran. Really good races in the breeders cup mile onto another you know breeders.

"As the pegasus world cup turf but This was filled with stars. Who was by. Jambalaya was arlington million winner. But she's been in front of other grade one winners like einstein and go-between and further down interpretation in mustafar. Who's a very talented turf horse for care. Mclaughlin point is she. She was recently lost find net. She wants to do buy things to go. There comes back windsor windsor. Great great to and then. The united nations were showing lost by a link to the champion turf horse. Odette year in english channel omran very valiant race. That day in a race did not set up well for her she kept. Offer your with a second in the fillion mirror. That was a very strong run over announced who bogging monmouth losing by less than a link honestly sudan someone who's not in europe wins for her but the performance issue put on against the boys and then in the rainstorm at mon- very very impressive to me just a very talented mayor wasn't always able to to put it together. Circumstances went against her on the big days. And now i'm gonna move onto my next horse. And i have to really restrain myself with this so i don't go off on a tangent here but i'm tried to tried to limit myself a not pull to morse's from the synthetic breeders cups in two thousand eight in two thousand nine that Were completely wasted. Because they were essentially grass races on. This is the only one that i pulled. But she's worse. It definitely deserves her recognition. And that's music not a godolphin runner who was a horsa did not like The synthetic surfacing and definitely was not a turf horse. But i'm talking about music note and it's really weird to see at a time when dolphin would not run their american horses consistently in the united states. Eric is going to have to do this video at some point video topics he's been talking to me about of. How many worse is that. Good dolphin had that could have potentially been really solid horses that For mismanagement were not allowed to get to their full potential but music note. Certainly one that was able to music note was a very very good philly in two thousand eight and you know had one narrow loss in the year two thousand that was a head loss in alabama stakes to the kentucky oaks winner from that year and other races. She won the mother goose coaching club. American oaks and the gazelle back when that was run later in the year and was a grade one race so three really strong grade one wins a head. Loss to the kentucky oaks winner proud spell. Who is a really good philly in her own. Goes to the breeders cup. Classic breeders cup ladies classic goes up against yata the big asterik for that race. And i'm always going to have on every racist in your career. And i'm not getting into that conversation here because i know xanada fans don't want to hear it but music note it was not. It was not fair for her in that race Definitely did not want turf was a turf race and xanada wound up winning it but music. Nope definitely deserves our respect for her three year. Old campaign unfortunately was not able to be the champion three year old filly debt year because she lost ladies classic but came back in two thousand nine ran to more good great ones in the on the east coast ballerina grade one win and then the bell dame same story in two thousand nine except that one was even more of a grassroots and she lost life is sweet who i am absolutely convinced. You would've beat if that was held on a normal dirt surface but beside the point music note is a very very good horse who does not does not have the legacy that she probably deserves. Because of the in in my opinion atrocious decision to put the breeders cup on synthetic surface for two years and of course the two years that she was at her peak And winning really good races out here with a to race in two years that breeders cup us on synthetic but a really good horse lost to the synthetic surfaces music note and that'll horse very much affected by circumstance that protect our that prevented the city from taking a breeders. Cup race is flawlessly. A one of the best to ever run in this country to time eclipse award winner for that category hall of famer even into dozen four but never talked about and it's because she never wanna breeders cup but she was an amazing amazing race mare. Especially when you take out the door because this is this is a filial actually began her career on a juror on the east coast. And she wasn't bad she wanted creed.

"Not as day. You broke so well. One of my favorite readers moments. Are tom durkin. Calls ever was right out of the gate and breeder's cup sprint. He just screams rubiano because the favorite broke so well and this was not a horse that like to be on lead But he just had so much power and speed that he flew out of the gates that day but then taken back in the race just did not set up in from. There was a speed favoring track at times on that gulfstream day. and it showed in that sprint. Where the want you've finishers Three sloughs over me affair or two one one to the entire way around that track and beyond was still able to close. I finish a good third that day but didn't get the job done. You don't hear much about but he was a very very talented sprinter on his day. And i'm gonna move onto another sprint but this is a different kind of spooner. This is philly pine tree lane of one of the first really good horses that was owned by bill. Young's overbrook farm and pine train is a very interesting horse because she is a breeders cup runner up really good second behind smile in nineteen eighty six breeder's cup sprint. And you look at her career. She she has good runs dotted all over the place but she is relatively an inconsistent horse. If you look at equa base page She did have a very poor eleven place. Finish the following year's breeder's cup sprint. But you know. I'm going to talk about her in a little bit in regards order trainer. Did you see that a lot with dwayne. Lucas phillies That he ran in races against the boys because he would run his phillies very very often sometimes multiple races in specific months in pine tree lane. With certainly no exception of her campaign from october of nineteen eighty six all the way through june of nineteen eighty seven was absolutely grueling. She only had three losses over. Excuse me four losses over that stretch of time. One of those breeders cup second. She was stirred in a stake at hollywood park. Third in another state at laurel and then finally she was defeated in the met mile in nineteen eighty seven. But you know over her over the course of her really strong campaigns before she ran stakes company. her first win in a stake race was right before the breeders cup that was in october and she had won three straight allowance races. Before that unfortunately. ecu- base is not have charts for those races. So i can't tell you how impressive they were. But i imagine they were good enough for her to be. Justified justify doron in the breeders cup of nineteen early part of one thousand nine hundred seven a really strong campaign for her couple of graded stakes out at santa anita. Four her Then a couple of stakes wins on the east coast in the distaff handicap. Bold ruler steaks. And then she won the carter and she is to date the most recent philly to win the carter and then had hermet mile run them was the winner of the genuine risk stakes and then did not win another race until her final prep before the breeders cup which was in october thirty first stake at academics and then her eleventh in the breeders cup in the breeders cup was run in late november that year because of scheduling issues with nbc. If anyone His ever seen that late november eight. Been curious about that. That's what happened with that. But pine tree lane a horse who on her best day it. Her best stretch was a really good horse. Certainly had very grueling campaigns in that could certainly be added to why she went onto to be rather inconsistent toward the later parts of her campaign but on her best a pine tree lane was a really really odd on a throwback to win a we used to get phillies that ran into breeders cup sprint and they would run really good races in them. I'm gonna continue to of sprinters and move onto a horse. Who had a very weird career. And i'll i'll dive into that in a moment but this is caller one who was one of the quickest horses of the late late nineties and early two thousand. I mean this works was just pure pure. If you've seen this horse in.

Honeysuckle the Perfect Champion at Cheltenham Festival 2021

"Question that's been asked to ask you as a broadcaster who has been to pretty much every major events in the world. And you've anchorage a loss of mainstream on terrestrial television in america but also you've covered pretty much every cheltenham festival in your career. What was it like would know crowd. Well we had had a year. I suppose of getting used to that crowd and even some pretty big events but it was right up there as very strange indeed because i think the restrictions of tightened here in the last couple of months before or they get loosened again restrictions tighter for children than perhaps they'd ever seen it at any major fixture at certain types it than they were at the breeders cup ties than it looked in in the middle east and an in australia so it was really odd him because cheltenham more than any other event is so contingent on on the crowds and provide atmosphere. It really was a an odd not experienced but by midway through the first after noon. I'd almost forgotten at one point. The crowd that i mean if you will if you're broke cussing racing. Cd audience as distinct from it audience. Perhaps you could say that. The crowd isn't as isn't as important. Because you're not going to be putting quite as much of that into the so Yeah bye-bye halfway through day one. My mind had been taken off it. But then there were moments that punctuated the week. Where you were. You reminded of quite stock again but still the the quality of this boat was outstanding when they ride the record books. They don't want to write the asterisk. That was crowd so it didn't seem to take the gloss off too much for henry bra. Gb buck and certainly an operational. Absolutely not i suppose. The top performance came day one and the champion hurdle the uni bet champion hurdle before the sponsors comes running after me with an ax honeysuckle and rachel block. More get back to back. Cheltenham festival wins another brilliant performance from henry de bromhead at cheltenham would last year's form kind of holding up sharjah. The runner up last year was second again. And the winner of last year's race epa ton with our new jockey. Aidan coleman finishing third. Nick what was your overall impression of of this year's champion your reaction as i watched was. I'm pretty sure it was is. The director came to you and said nick iran. I'm pretty sure you use went. Wow that's that kind of summed it up for all of us. I probably got a bit carried away in all honesty. But we do. Occasionally we do occasionally get a bit carried away and i. It was a completely genuine emotion. I wasn't trying to compensate dirty. Was i genuinely was blown away by so i tried to work out. Why subsequently i made some cloud landed comments that would probably verging toward hyperbole. And i think it's because of the way she finished her race off the way the the way in which she rounded the final almost on rails honeysuckle jumped the loss and then scampered up the running. And i left the impression of a performance of of of of otter total dominance on. I was staggered. By how well. She finished off the race now. Subsequent section now. The ray suggests that the reason for that was that they'd slowed the pace down. Because gordon was being a head banger. In the middle of the race they. The pace of the race had slackened significantly and really at turned into a test of speed and she was able to win like she was because as she was in grateful be. She's very very good. See she's got more than people thought she had. Indeed she was tactically. Well positioned biracial blackmore. But the the image the impression of scampering away from shahjahan episodes in a really good time the hill really good finishing split Just was just made me feel good and before you start talking about ratings and allowances where it sits in the pantheon ultime champion other. When is it just made me feel good. And i didn't think at that point they would be many. If any performance during the week to to eclipse i in terms of dominance and quality. How wrong i was

Over the two I'm so Steve Sherman, and Frank Alvarado. To one second choice on the morning line consternation. Irish Bred Filly Patty, gallagher and eclipse thoroughbreds. Your mind five favorite on the morning line. And she should be the favorite and this should be a much softer spot for her than what she saw in her last start. She broke her maiden impressively del Mar on the turf to starts back coming from well out of it to win going away despite a slow start jumped up to face winters in the surfer girl last time out not only face the undefeated Madonna but face Tetra donal and pizazz. All three of those phillies are scheduled to run in the Breeder's cup juvenile fillies turf next Friday. Consternation was only five to one against those good phillies last time out unfortunately, she didn't she didn't run late she was five one she ran or like she was about twenty five to one. She got beat about nine lengths that day but this is a softer spot in the Pike, the Pike Place Dancer she's drawn well down along the inside I don't think the races got tons of speed, but there is a little speed in the race and I think consternation should be able to make up some ground against this field I like her at nine to five Johnny one of the king's open Pretty much the king now in northern.

We go through it finish the fierce. The number one horse, The one eyed gilding has been scratched. He is not running in the race number two Max player, Ricardo Santana Jr. The jockey, Steve asked. Musa is the trainer Max player. Is down. 18 Toe one. He was a morning line. 30 to 1. He's back. He's been bet. Pretty good. So far enforceable. Adam. The skits of the jockey Mark Cassie is the trainer 23 to 1 down a little bit from 30 to 1 in the morning line. Storm. The court who was the breeder's Cup juvenile champion last year, Julien Les Peru is the jockey Peter Kurten is the trainer 26 to 1, Major fed James Graham and Greg fully 34 to 1. They were 50 to 1 in the morning line. Number six. King Guillermo has been scratched. Money moves. This is the one that is interesting to me. Money moves from Todd Pletcher, making just his fourth career start. Was a 32 1 in the morning line and is getting bet. Heavy. Todd Pletcher's Horse Down 15 to 1 South Bend. I don't think all the Notre Dame Ah money has come in yet on South Been 34 to 1, Tyler Gaffney, Leone and Belmont trainer. Mr Big News. Gabriel Sias trainer Brett Calhoun 47 to 1 number 10,000 words as we said 10 to 1.

Romans 49 the one I thought that he would actually get a bet down. I'm a little surprised that that one winning surprise winning impression is no surprise. He is 52 to 1, the longest shot on the board. Dallas Stuart and Joe Rocco. In the irons, New York traffic 15 to 1, Paco Lopez and Saffy Joseph is Ah Ah, actually, I think he's gonna end up being like the third or fourth choice when it's all said and done.

Racing Without Gambling

"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

Mark Casse Interview - January 18, 2020

"When you talk about the three year olds this weekend all eyes on the grade three Lecomte stakes at the fairgrounds and mark? CASSIE is going to be a very very busy man. He has horses entered there there. He has horses entered at Gulfstream Park. And as you might expect he's prominent in so many major stakes races mark with me now here on the horse racing radio network mark appreciate the visit in the time my friend thank you. Thanks for having me now. It just got to win a few. Yeah now you just got to get things rolling. I mean you're pretty. Hey good at that though sometimes so far this year but it's really it's early what's okay so for a trainer when you go through a little stretch like this. You said it's slow. You know things will pick up eventually. But what do you. How do you keep the faith? How do you keep the same approach? Approach everything well. You just know that it's worked and so You know you just you just keep doing the same thing you've always it's done So much of it is is just sometimes you go through cycles and things work right sometimes. I can look at it condition. Asian book a lot of times. And tell you whether we're going to how we're going to do. Sometimes you know you have races that fit your horses better than others and But by the you know you just continue David Care on. I've talked about this many times and that is you just keep doing doing What you've been doing we We won five breeders cups and two classics. And so I think we we I think we we. We know what we're doing so we just keep doing the same thing. Yeah more than twenty eight hundred victories in North America for trainer Mark. CASSIE so. Yeah I think you know what you're doing it hard mark not to start like tweaking. Funny Mike though I will tell you. This is many racist as we went all those. When you start? Start when you do go through a little spell where you're not winning as much as you'd like you know you're like he's still like oh I want to win. It never changes. It doesn't matter whether for me whether it's a five thousand dollar claiming race or five hundred thousand dollars claiming race and I I don't like losing nobody does You know so There you go. Well hopefully things start picking up with the Lecomte Lecomte stakes later today and all the stakes races at Gulfstream tubes. You're well represented there but let's let's focus on the three year olds in the lacob and this is a race that you want for the first time. Last last year with war of will we know it worked out okay for him he went out and won the preakness later in the season. And some people will say maybe he should have won the Kentucky Derby. But that's neither here nor there here at this point So tell me about the two horses you have this year. You have Lynn's map and then you have enforceable and I would say Lens Map. Probably the more highly regarded at least in terms of the the morning line. Well well we just scratched him. Oh okay well there you go. And and that was kind of the plan when he drew the fourteen hall. It's nearly nearly impossible to win anywhere from the fourteen whole But New Orleans is pretty tough to win from the fourteen hole So when that happened when he drew outside their yesterday we Entered him in the Smarty Jones. And he's going to run next Friday at Oakland in the Smarty Jones. That works out okay. It doesn't cost you a whole lot of time right. No no not at all and The the Smarty Jones I think he's number eight of nine much much more favorable Post and Yeah he's a very nice horse he's he's done done well so far We're excited to have him and you know now he. He's he's taken one step. He took another step and now the big except the big step that says. Can you run with the better. Three year olds in North America and We're going to have to wait a week to find out. Is there something mark that you look for for in your newly turn. Three year olds at this point in the season that you say okay they they have that it factor they have what it takes to be a factor moving down the road to the Kentucky Derby. Oh yeah I I mean I think you can look at horses and say you know can again this one go forward a lot of times. It's pedigree a lot of times. It's the and brains So it takes a lot it takes a lot and and more than anything it takes a while back but Definitely by this. It's time you know we're looking at is that we think could You know go on I would say that A year ago today I still had big question backs questions about Sir Winston I wasn't sure how good he was as yet and But WAR WILL I. I was very confident at this time. Last year. I think I can remember doing an interview review Down for Thinks it's name right now but down in New Orleans and he he said What do you think of your chances today? And I said I'd be surprised if he gets beat. And I don't say that very often but I had just the utmost confidence of war in war will well We're not we're not in the same. You know we are not on the same same page right now as we were a year ago so we have enforceable end. Today who enforceable is one of the horses he's gotTa humongous pedigree pool brother Demo Heynen also half brother another really good horse. Can't can't escape me right now. But he's a horse. We liked a lot but he is just been extremely slow to come around His last race was much better than it looks on paper and in David's extremely happy with the way he's trained up to this race so You know we're expecting big things out out of in today I if we don't see him today then he's just not I don't think he's good enough so We're we're looking for big things out of him today. Are there a couple of other three year olds in the Cassie Barn. That people should keep an eye on as we moved down this route short on my three year old colts right now. Um and one that I would tell you that we work game this morning. I'm in Miami today and we work in this morning we bought or recently broke his maiden name's untitled Broke his maiden at cough stream ran a ninety eight buyer One by ten. I'm excited about at him pretty soon this morning out of the gate and I just like so many things about him. He's a big tall lanky cold with a great mind and and Just lucky you know that we were able to get him in and now we need. We need to have some luck with him. He's going to Swail We have two you other cults that are in running allowance races today Strike Appeal and race driver. They're running that fairgrounds right now I would call them the B. Team Hopefully plea. After today we could call on them they will say earlier. You mentioned the name of the Belmont winner from last year Sir Winston. I saw that he had a breeze was yesterday at Acworth. Desert Right which day before the day before a guy for yeah? What's what's going on with him extremely well? We were very happy with the The only issue he pulled the shoe off during the work and then he stepped on it and He's been a little tender on and we're currently Soaking his foot and and insane I would say fifty fifty. I sent him up to run him in Chazal I think it's called and Next weekend right now I'd say we're fifty fifty two run. We're GONNA see. See Our foot response to that and If not we'll wait for the next one. My long term explains for him is is trying to get him to do by which I'm happy. He grew up a lot during his time off. He's a big handsome horse now. And and Training well so expect big things out of in We'll see what happens here with his foot. Just been on the phone with the Cheney Baig Egg who is my main assistant there knows no Sir Winston probably better in any way and he helped preparing for the Belmont and So we're we're seeing. He's he's soaking his foot as we speak what's going on with the preakness winner. IS HE GONNA race in two thousand twenty. Yes eastern well. He watched him train Yesterday morning before I drove down to Miami scrape. He's grown up. Some right now are feeling Is that. He's a great one winner on the dirt. We're going to try to make him a grade. One winner this year on the grass so that that's where we'll be focusing Probably the maybe around March or April April.

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.

Trainer Richard Baltas on Next Shares' Surprise Win

"Start with next shares before we talk talk about the fun story with Oscar Dominguez but next year's Boy The betting public. They're they're very demanding ending. And I I guess right yeah zinc. I actually had people telling me that they thought the Horse is done. You know and I'm like well I wouldn't be running on the done so You know he does like a little bit of you know. We've got rain that we and he does like thank the term for the little given it and he doesn't like it when it's super hard. You knew it was really hard during the Breeders Cup and you know we're taking a shot there but when he broke out the gate Alaska said he just like he just didn't handle it. He said he was stinging. Just you know from the Turpin so hard so he just kinda got him around there and He came back to work. Really good on the turf and had to good works on the turf and I actually was like stuck with a writer our 'cause Franken worked. Giovanni Franko worked on Chirping. He couldn't get off the D'Amato ours and then they've L. Devia works a monograph and he loved them and just immigrate right through in the real so well and he won he won with really with some authority. And that's the part that I I think was was most impressive. Just looking hadn't won since January And that goes back to the San Gabriel. And you're the you know this is the you're the second you're the second winner from the weekend. That mentioned how hard the turf was up north versus down there and I'm trying to think it was. It might have been Michael was wasn't might've been talked Michael McCarthy. I talked to house talk to Cassie. So yeah well you know. We don't get any rain and it's sunny in hot all the time. And it's like they have air raid it and you have to put water on it and They really gotta stay after the trip so you you know the now. There's nothing better than Mother Nature for anything. I don't I believe so it's true. I heard from a few jockeys I mean. You know it's I think on on the East Coast guys come out here. They write a lot of grass races. Obviously over there so I can a- they'll tell you wow it's really hard today

How a 'Flipped Palate' Affects a Racing Horse

"Nick Zito sent out Kentucky. Derby runner-up is box in the Belmont stakes. After having won the Florida Derby icebox went off as the three to one favorite in the test of the champion. But he finished ninth after the race. Zito said that icebox had flipped his Palette which caused his dull finish. So what does that mean. Take the tip of your tongue and tickle the back of your mouth make sure due to keep that soft tissue back. They're soft don't stiff in your throat. Okay that soft tissue. You're feeling with your tongue. Is Your soft oft pallet with race. Horses that soft palate can flip up and sit. On top of the EPA Gladys the EPA gladys is the little flap of skin skin in the back of your throat. That makes sure you don't swallow food down your windpipe or breathe into your stomach instead of your lungs. So when the soft palate sits it's on that EPA gladys the airway is partially obstructed. And the Horse isn't getting all the fuel it needs now. Typically the cure for a flipped pallet. Hallett is a minor surgical procedure to lift the Palette. So it doesn't flip up. It sounds relatively simple and in theory the horse should return to form thereafter rafter. But in the case of icebox after that throat surgery he finished off the board in the Haskell travers and the Monmouth Cup in fact icebox never won another race and finished in the top three in one allowance race over the next year and a half his final start. Art was an eleventh in the two thousand Eleven Breeders Cup classic. So here's the question. Is there a little more to it when a horse flips. It's pallet. It seems that that some researchers at Cornell University have been investigating that very question and one of those investigators. Dr Norm Ducharme joins us here on the gate with some surprising results. It's alternate and one of those investigators. Dr Jonathan Chatham joins us here on the gate with some surprising results. Alternate Ed and one of those investigators. Dr Martin Bucer. Coney joins US here on the gate with some surprising results. Your colleagues and you have spent a great deal of time researching researching what causes the soft palate to be displaced. What have you found so we found that in the earlier about historically shortly? We used to think that I was always the pallets fault that something was wrong with the pallid itself and that's led to a lot of treatment targeting the pallet but we found that it's the position of the larynx voice box that stabilizes the upper airway horses that exercise. This is and this is Pacific to race horses or horses that do more than just trotting any horse. Galloping race of the our study was focus on them as horses and we found that one specific muscle and they could be others as well. Just one that there's more studies on fatigues a few seconds before the Horse Displaces Palate is upper airway become loose quote unquote. And then the polit spices. The Racehorse In the second career often can become a sport horse and being the same greed so but if you relate into other functions that complained and many of the sport anymore says on a horse that this thing is talent is the normal noise. He's so the displacement of palate causes an obstruction to the airflow but unless the horse needs maximum airflow flow capacity the obstruction does not interfere or is unlikely to interfere with the performance of the Horse. But the horse the second thing that a pal how displacement does in the vast majority of horses as it creates an abnormal up arrest story noise often referred to as snoring or gurgling really. It's the same structure that people that snore vibration of the palate and horses is that displays the Palette of vibration of Palate as well and have normal noise affects the perception of judge. This writer in in the sports world. Can you please explain what the common surgical procedure is. How does the Pallet get lifted up? It's the airflow during excellence. And that lifts the Palette and causing obstruction during excavation and that's opposed to most other obstruction in the worst is anyway which happens during installation so during acceleration wants to the boys boxes below the Palette. The Palette is like Cassandra or spinnaker in an airflow get caught and the airflow and and lifts it up and vibrates just like you and I. We were snoring. The that's probably the proper metaphor accepting happens while racing or galloping horses now if the issue is muscle fatigue in the soft palate is that indicative negative of General Muscle Fatigue in the Horse in other words is the horse just destined not to run that fast no there. It's and then muscle fatigue in the muscles that controlled the position of voice box. We don't know that the soft palate actually fatigues south excellent. Maybe a an innocent bystander in that area were too soft pilots natural strength and fatigue May may not be able to prevent displacement. When it's an in nonsense illogical position meaning it sticking stuck on the air flow in the middle of the airflow but to come back to the fatigue? So so we've and this paper here that we're referring discovering muscles. Fatigue is is the likely cause of displacement and most forces right forces that is but they sit in their first. I'll answer question to through faith. The first question is is the muscle the horse just fatigue and this is just one of many muscles that are fatigue and and the answer is it's no. This seems to be specific to the muscle that controls the upper airways not the entire worse. There's different type above muscle their arrest story muscle which are meant to function all the time. And there's muscle us When the horses are galloping the skeletal muscle and the training of horses is focused on training them to be able to compete athletically? Let it quickly really focusing on their cardiovascular fitness as well as their skeletal muscle fitness. But we're not sure that the upper for airway current training at that are optimized for the upper airways voices and they might not be optimized optimizing for this group of forces that are predisposed to it because they have the wrong muscle fiber

Three Wins in 4 Years Is a Record

"James Good Morning. Good Morning Steve. Thanks for having me on hope your weekend. Well it did. It did and I thought I saved I wrote I write down as many selections. It's always tough for Breeders Cup because then the paper gets all gets a little a little sloppy and sure enough here. I'm looking now and yeah I do have it. Actually there we go there we go home. You were a Vino guy and and bricks and mortar and and then spun to run so yeah your share of winners Too Key around I thought was on higher power. Though I didn't have you know I got you written down for Dino. I took higher power stirred Flavian Pratt. What's up on them? I'll tell you play the Heidi wrote one favorite Donna Duluth below she. The brewers Juke juvenile given up Phillies runner-up but he had a win. had four seconds and fourth earners. I thought that was a really a great performance by him and You know he has the Kentucky Derby win on his resume junkies like have that really just A good showcase for an upcoming star in our rank agreed and and I tweeted on Sunday. I've discussed this a couple of times this week. His record is stunning. And he's got people would say. Oh He's only got three wins. WHOA WHOA three wins? Thirty eight mounts and this is only his fourth year as fourth year riding his sixteen seventeen eighteen nineteen at-bats. Ah But another fourteen in the money finishes and then a handful of fourths and fifths I mean the percentage is frightening. I mean considering considering the level of competition really outstanding and he gives he gives every virtually every horse. If he's got horse to work with he gives them a chance. It's definitely and you know I mean I think Santa Anita and hosted the Breeders Cup eight times previously and and and he was writing a lot of california-based debased horses and one of my takeaways was definitely that this this year's Breeders Cup with completely unlike any out in California before I mean just uh-huh it just. It really started on Friday where the first four winners had all raised it Aqueduct Belmont and by the end of it I'm you know I'm looking at it it it. If you'd looked at the charts that Saturday at at Saratoga you wouldn't be surprised to see our ad or ts in four races Castellano and Rosario win into each and then Jose or ts Manny Frank Ricardo Santana All winner races well and Joe Bravo and that's what happened. They took twelve to fourteen races and and all twelve of those horses that race in New York this year now very strong on that on that front and ah not to say that Just had the conversation with Nick. Lock about the euro's and there were there were solid efforts and solid board hits in addition to Iridescence win but The you know the and there were solid performances from west coast sources to bell. Athena's Bella Fina. At under under certain circumstances dances might have won. The united almost looked like a winner hundred yards from the wire There were there were plenty of of solid performances from every region In some cases. Look at Vino. Vino having been into California. I think counselor a lot. You fold in folding would ask. Did you know getting there early with Matali Actually Navarro to I mean in Navarro got there early with a chance. A Lot A lot of times the a Lotta Times. The juvenile turf sprang can be like locally based sources can do all your top two in that race were both based in California with Peter Miller and you the one hundred and thirty five bucks. That's right that's right. That's right his second his second in the race in three years. I'm just looking at the list to spun to run from Philadelphia. So you get you get a a regional kind of a B.. Track player are sharing sharing holiday for new. New York's thunder run actually ran in a mate. Nice at act backer. And the winner but I mean the parks and mom Sharing base at Far Hills at far hell and Maryland bred. That's a couple of times Toga. Yeah yeah everybody everybody got their Lixin. Actually when you when you kind of go through this And I'll just say I I came away. I mean granted. I thought the four big stars coming into enforces with the serious horsey. Our aspirations Bricks Mourner Corner Sister Charlie and Matola two of the four one I think it really does come down horse a year two bricks and mortar and Matola Louis. But I'm giving the edge bricks mortar. I thought it was fantastic campaign. He had been a mile or previously. Before you know getting hurt and undergoing that surgery and I like the fact that Brad Cox I mean Brown ran him. You know he never ran he. Random and six different courses six different states. You went from Florida to Louisiana to Kentucky Hockey to New York to Illinois and the California To win a mile and a half for the first time in his career so to me. He's a deserving of the year well and and driving home the point about the mile and a half for people that because they always beat all the same types and didn't stretch himself then no he did and and you know the there was even people that were incredulous about him going the mile and a half so you know that that score extra points Without a doubt yeah definitely and you know to me One of the Mike Smith that made the point After a couple Oh. He ran second on a pair of privet favorites midnight zoo in Omaha Beach. And he's made the point that he'd right like those races back because it was hard to 'cause over that track track but to me it was more so that those horses were caned on the rail going into the first turn. Blue Prize was tenth early. You know tolley Holy Arosa could be five or six minutes off the pace. But they're jocks really at. That did a great job keeping them in the clear and I really thought midnight. These to you You know continue just to be in traffic through into the far turn. And when she got out she finished great as a case I mean they the great job on on TV and other highlighting it where I think of a blueprint. It's got the jump on her because of the trip the greed and it and it it also. It should be noted for people that are you know insisting that the track nobody could close well. WHOA that's not true? which is simply me? Just look at the chart for the distaff. What do you mean nobody could close at that? Just you know Omaha. Beach closed closed In in as well came from often and others whitmore made up. I mean it wasn't going to get to the winners and the the exact pair But he closed Idiom really had down below chicken that juvenile fillies and that's when the track was absolutely at its worst deepest pissed most impossible right based on based on the figure and in fact. It's funny because yesterday. Paul Matisse was talking about how difficult Friday was to make figures and then it was echoed by Jerry Brown on His On his experts board board. Somebody brought up. Paul's conversation and Jerry also echoed that the way the track changed from the you know the middle part of the day to by the time even the the juvenile boys ran so typically you would if the juvenile of the males run more than two seconds faster than the phillies. You'll get say their way better than the nose Philly but I do think it was. It was a track getting off faster later. And I. I'm I'm not down on British idiom or Donna Boise at all even though that right they came home. I think they should be still terrific runners. And you know it's it's hard to gauge coming out of the juvenile being real adobe guy Exactly what that means going forward so into court definitely Nice Horse Court Vision You know hasn't isn't had much success at Stud but he's bread You know fire. Classic types with that pedigree of his female family has a lot of stamina influences. It just doesn't have much class. You won't find any stakes winners really in that immediate female family well your final the final takeaways. My final take away so I just you know I you know I was. I thought you know it was a tragic end McGowan crew. I mean it was just a Really hurt to see that happy at the very end After a thirteen of the Breeders Cup races have that happened in the ashtray and and racing. Definitely I think has some issues and concerns going forward. the people in the industry maybe do a better job messaging but I still remain. Optimistic is the horserace fan about the future and I was. I came away like in the Breeders Cup. I thought there was some great performances and Looking for work once again the next year very good well. We're looking forward to the action this weekend give us some thoughts about Churchill had terrific card even today yesterday and Wednesday were good and of course the Commonwealth on Saturday the feature the Grade Three Mile and a sixteenth. The three year olds on the grass. It is an absolute war. Some thoughts about what's been going on while everybody was paying attention to Breeders Cup and and we got to look forward to this weekend. Yeah they had three stakes last week and In the MEA mischief flatmate go for the sale and and look good. She loves Churchill Downs Multiple Grade. One winner there in the Divine Queen got off to bad start. Art Never Fire in the In Saturday stakes chill Lewke and Sally's Kirwin breakers Swin She tried the Indiana Oaks folks earlier. This year didn't run good for Dale Romans. But she had one or last two allowance races by like about fifteen lenz combined and ran a rug. Good Rice debris greet Brian Cox's

Dick Powell Discuss Melbourne Cup

"And you know Haskins brought up Melbourne Cup and boy you I wanNA talk about a firestorm. We thought the Derby had an aftermath. The this Melbourne Cups had an aftermath. Well uh-huh they disqualified point Aboard Master reality. He had the lead As he's I've been doing all year he's been riding aggressively and trying to use all the skills to get home. He looked like he was going to do it. And then balanced declare was on the inside Pencil Barron on the outside of fighting duck then tightened up paradiso. who was making this phenomenal for Wayne Lorden and that one little bit of a chain reaction with the winner Alan declare but it was hard to tell on the head on? When did it happen the stretch like they were right on the wires? So did it happen to strike. Before strike after SORTA stewards took quite a while to go over it and it turned out to be way. The inquiry work turned out to be Aidan. O'Brien's rider claiming against Joseph Brian's right doc. So they took Joseph them and they move up to third they put they put Joseph back the fourth. And then me off mine. WHO's Donald? But he wound up winning Craig Williams aboard the Toy. Your own son of declaration of war vow the choir He was highly touted into and all the commentary commentary before the rate big slice. I wound up betting prince of Aaron. He went off at sixteen to one. was in a winning position every step at one point. It looks like he's GonNa win and in fact at the Y.. Michael Walker stands hands up. biking won the raised. Any like what's to his last. Maybe not I've been. I've been a crutch back now. So he winds up winning running third moved moved up to second page eighteen dollars. The place one of his twenty. Something exactly came back for thirty with to watch go horses but as as Paul said earlier today you can make a chance for fourteen of them and then in the stretch of if you watch the race again and again but Chattanooga's Colt made the glass judge flying. That's making tons of ground surprise. That'd be Jut. Mine was at that Cross County residents winter hex software. Don't that but still he was coming on. William Bill just tremendous the Spanish on the wire and They took my keys on the the mind. veg suspensions actually out it's always it's always entertaining and one of those special days and I was in such a blur. You know coming out of the weekend and then traveling link so i. I was behind Catching up to it and all the and all the hubbub and speaking of Catching up and everything deck. Let's get your right before we talk Hong Kong and there is plenty there. There's actually a lot of news That I've seen from around the world Horses is that are starting to announce their intention to run on champions On the Champions Card but before we do that you're breeders cup takes so they would kind of disappointing my handicap and was just not what it should be. I was on with you when we're cavalry was on and I talked about tracking your father. Santa Neither Steve with that so that was no surprise the way the track played away from me. I just didn't have the right voices. I seven degrees with about if you tell me do tries. It's IT'S GONNA run back good in the first half. I gotTA figure Dunbar Road. It's GonNa be light in and she wasn't so that that cost and then I you know I I I knew track was going to be the way it was. I was right about that. And I know code honor the relatively small horse that Kinda gets over the popped track down too far and sure comes up the way. They're even like that goes on her and don't see was he. He didn't look before the race. Though I can't I can't blame it all on the track because in the post sprayed he was very antsy he was very not wash now going into the game but he was started warm. And that's to me. That's unlike him so even with the track he didn't look at going in and then obviously than handle the track so so it wasn't it wasn't a they want a lot of high five point Friday and Saturday and other than that originally this great I kind of had the opinion and Europeans Warren to strongest companion. Especially when magical make the trip turned out to be probably true but the one the one I really screwed up on sale sponsored that's That's that's when you go back and look how about applesauce episodes come up and I've been so so so I was just two more days of back getting it done okay. Well and that just shows you that you don't as I say repeatedly and I write that the introduction to keep people I don't want people to get completely flummoxed by by Breeders Cup and that they they you know they didn't do well and I. Can't you know you do well this weekend. delmar opens tomorrow and the Churchill. Fields Terrific You don't it's two days. It seems like they're the most important on the calendar when it comes to wagering opportunities but the money you make in the Melbourne Cup is just as just as valuable as the money you. You didn't make on Breeders Cup weekend and it's why it was one of those things where I kind of recognized that nothing seems to be working so I a lot of money Friday and Saturday. The thing is like when you're playing blackjack and you get really good cards. And then he keeps feeding him. So you're betting more than shirt because you're getting really good parts. Oh you get bad cards you just get that. Take your losses so I kinda problem everything down on Saturday. So wasn't you know I didn't that anywhere near the funding that I take him out. Taken out of my bank account too but the rights coming up and I look forward to the multiple foul and I got lucky because I could have just as easily been shoving second exactly. And that's what the that's what makes that's what makes it so much fun so maddening reddening or or so exciting. It's just it's gotta run for you That that's always the bottom line and on a day day on days like we had Friday and Saturday there were as as Paul. Matisse laid out brilliantly today there are things that are going to conspire against you. And you can't can't. You can't completely alter your game plan or abandoned your your approach. You can adjust maybe a B and tinker and throw in some savers and whatnot. But if it's not going to be your you know your day or your two days. Ah Ah but it doesn't reflect doesn't reflect on what lies ahead and and there's still a lot of good racing November's of terrific racing month that we got all the the action of Churchill leading up to the Clark And the stars of tomorrow to Ecuador off off to a tremendous start. I mean if they can if they can maintain this before people break camp and start the head to Florida and whatnot. It's going to be a very good Ecuador meet because the fields are competitive racing is interesting so that's often and del Mar With the first two cards sat and that looks like give. There's always a lot of good turf racing at del Mar so often. Go off we go. How about to spend the last couple of minutes? The Hong Kong updates about four minutes shopping rich sharpton ran on Sunday We now have a true Sunday. We have a high fifty races favorites at one. Twenty six percent the average field sizes twelve and one and the average win price is twenty dollars and fifty cents so prices again value. You and Twenty Six hundred seventy is pretty thoughtful considering twelve twelve though horses surveys Shopping on fat set Sunday very fast track is good too terminate running raid this time so when you look back at those races understand that they worked on pretty quick. Nothing really stood out on on. That took yesterday at Happy Valley They Rennes nine. Nine on the paraffin and interesting things Steve Race sex with the fifty six to one shot that one and you WanNa talk about how different things are from talk to them and I keep saying we want to be like the rest of the world that we used to be so the horse that won training by Begnaud young he was called into the stewards to try to explain this big former. There's a whole explanation the nation and and the chart comments and China's that easy stated that this was the second. Start off the way off. As I started at some mucous in his trachea they they trained him and congre which is inland about three hours minded China Trade Centre pollution and everything else and Hong Kong. Long time that's awesome but here stewards are paying attention not just You know I've done horses that I have run poorly a horse. Who when often you John? Why did he run so well? And that's that's you know that's called transparency and integrity.

Steve Haskin Discuss What Is True Horseracing

"Listen I don't WanNa put a damper on things or anything but you know to me. This was not was not true. Horse racing at least as I know it And I I will say that the grass races were were all good. I have no problem with that but after after that a lot of things that just get ugly for me you know. I don't WanNa see horses and jockeys coming back on on a track labelled fast looking like they just been rolling in the sandbox I realized being zealous in their attempt to make detract safe which is understandable expandable. But in my opinion they did. They did at the expense of the racing I mean who's who says you have to make a track excessively really deep and tiring to make it safe. I mean they're they're faster race tracks. I go back look at the aqueduct over the years and they're all in in highly even even the old old Santa Anita track was always safe. Saratoga I mean these are basically safe racetracks. You know so. So what's going on now. I can understand but sometimes you can overdo something and you know. And as much as as I liked Vino Rosso in the classic and you know one all kinds of bets on them To tell you the truth I can never ever watch that race again for abuse reasons to search too much 'cause actually liked Mongolian groom ally and and actually thought at one point in the race that he looked like he was gonna Finish in the money but you know all the repercussions of that. which most I think most of it is just nonsensical? In fact I just read somewhere that you know the vet came that came out. The trainer came out and said it was perfectly sound. You know and understand these things happen. There's no there's absolutely no blame here at all. Just the fact that it happened. That hurts just like it's hurt from all the other incidents in fatal fatal incidents in the past. And you know I go back I was there for roughing it. I was there for go for one. That was there for prairie by you. I mean there for a lot of witnesses and every time you go through a little bit out of you and you know I I I just sort of get attached the Mongolian. Groom not only from a betting standpoint but I just like the connections and and the and the the horrible irony of it is the fact that you know right after the race. He stated emphatically that. They're not going that they don't want to put up two hundred thousand dollars and and then you figured some offers would come in to to get a piece of it and put up. Put up the the supplementary fee and they said you know now talking to date decided to change their mind put up the money and and and then this happened so I know how absolutely devastated everybody. Everybody was there So but you know that's not even what I'm talking about when I'm talking about About the debris come you know I. I just don't want to see the best distance. Sources in the country stagger home the last half a mile and fifty two seconds. That's not resource time time I you can make the track slower and slower and slower but it was weird because the the formula was the same old data. We're going faster early legitimate. The sprint races were run fast but I mean come home the last year from fifty two. I mean that's ridiculous and you know it wasn't that the horses were bad. It was at the race crack. You know that. They poured truckloads of sand on the day before the Breeders Cup. You know and speaking of the classic Nick and that Racetrack. I certainly don't want to see the V to bed. Closes in the country. Never even pick up their feet and get beat fifteen lengths and seventeen links like they're running through quicksand. And I had agreed with Doug mcgann. He's original plan to skip the Breeders Cup and was totally against it when they change their mind. I knew the odds were stacked against them. Being three year olds shipping West I quoted that statistic that they were over twenty two in the past. I and especially with the track favoring speed at that time and I had no idea that it would get even worse for him when he got there and I don't think I don't think shook did either either. I think he was Kinda surprised how how track was playing how deep it was and how come from behind horses were were just spinning their wheels. We also hallway so you don't WanNa see that you know you just don't want to see any kind of track bias when you've got the championships at stake. I mean it was a lot at stake. Code of honor but you know so. Now he's got to End His Campaign very ingloriously. But that's just the beginning You know you look at Look at the beach I mean I I I don't WanNa see arguably the most exciting and talked about horse in the the entire Breeders Cup. Who's been on just off the pace going six furlongs to a mile in an ace in every one of his starts eight and a half lengths back at the half mile? Call all of the dirt mile and still five lengths back at the poll. You know. He's he's still runs one of the best races of his life despite the track and he can't even get close to you know I'm not taking anything away from spun to run but he can't even get close to that horse. You know who was beaten nine links in the Haskell who I I was at parks when he beat gray magician by heading the smarty Jones he ran well in the Pennsylvania Derby but he's still fit and then suddenly turned into a superstar overnight. Overnight gets a one ten buyer and some small stakes at parks despite never having run a triple digit Byron his life so I mean Karama beach I mean even to get close to that horse and to come from that far out of it and where the heck was cold front you know in twelve career starts. He's I've been on the lead or within a link to the lead in every in every start in the met mile. He's on the leading forty four and one for the half but in this race he's running V v six and a half lengths off the lead. I mean I don't get that. Where was he so you want to run? As soon as he went out there you know and opened up to three lengths. She said nobody's nobody's going to catch the source on this racetrack. And like I said I thought I thought the Omaha Beach Randy terrific race to get second and even staying with the dirt mile. Yeah I don't WanNa see the second and third choices you look improbable and Mr Money. who were both being very highly touted touted By their trainers and many of the experts. And who would training brilliant leaguge swimming out there never picking their feet up then got beat nine of ten ten and three quarter lengths. You know now you get to midnight. Be Sue I don't WanNa see the best filling in the country unable to make up an inch aground. In the last days the mile with a final creates run in under forty seconds. You know what in the world we should be doing running ace at the top of the stretch You you know I mean it was a was it. A bad ride was just bad. Racing Locke was was big track. I mean take your pick but affiliates not supposed to be that far back and and if you watch the race you could see blue price who you know. Give her credit you know. She wants to come from off the pace but he had a made her she had to make a move move back stretch and it had lead ready at the eighth pole you know and then you know finally you look at Friday. I don't WanNA see your race with into the strongest W prospect. Seen in years. Completely fall apart. You have a forty five to one shot at twenty eight to one shot and thirty nine to one shot come from first third and fourth to finish one two three and the three to two shot running second stops to a walk getting beat over twelve lengths. You you know and then you know meanwhile before five shot and erase stumbles at the start and finish dead last so to me. That race was a total bust. In fact to tell you the truth by the way if somebody had told me a week before the Breeders Cup that we were GonNa see the Derby favourite less weekend and it would not be a it would not be any of the three favorites more. Would it be scabbard. Nor anybody else in the juvenile but it would be the winner of the national stakes the next day by far and away the most impressive two year old. Maybe most impressive overseeing the team your weekend and then you go to the other dirt race. On on Friday juvenile fillies you know we have to brilliant phillies coming off. A dominating wins literally staggering home rubber-legged in in an agonizing slow twenty seven three and seven and two for the last sixteenth of a mile. I didn't raise sources. Could run that slow so to to me. You know this is just one. I'M GONNA forget very quickly but this would have forgotten about it by now. If I didn't have to talk about out of here I listen. I'm sure I'm sure a lot of other people feel are being too harsh. But what can I do. It's just the way I feel. You know maybe it's just I've got too many Committee races behind me.
