"Read king with an early blitz as they raced for the far turn. He's moving for the front and he's moving for the front right now on the far turn now. Lobbying pratt brings united to the outside. He's just a link to the half behind as they come to the top of the stretch. Red king on the outside is the leader united as outside but he still has to get the red king with one furlong to run red king and front united on the outside still has not gotten to him read king united red king. Towed up raiders. Up on umberto risley made a tremendous move midway down. The backstretch felt early when you are watching the race but the pace was slow and ripley judged it perfectly and i don't know that he's the best on talent but do not underestimate that writer he is tremendous and a twenty two one. I take a look at red king. Just because risk believes riding him. You guys realize that we just mentioned almost every horse in the entire field and not as why. My head hurts. This is a great race. It's an amazing race. You you could honestly hit the all button in this one. But it's not the main event. The main event comes after that the richest race in north america the breeders cup classic six million dollars and i thought i heard you say bob. You're not all that high on tis the law race to win the race time day. Todd really yes. I think this is setting up. Nicely for santa rows whitney might be talking up. Improbable other improbable. Problem shot tomsic time. Just coming out of never got back into the race. Wasn't all that eating out far far habit. Was i think if you go back to his other races there was reason. My favorite icee out stalls jobs even of sharp trading of Horses on a real big race. I'd have to look for them. Probably to a security to get second. I think he's whereas. I know this so many inches behind. There's a lot of. There's a lot of baggage there. But i still think e even though we got beat last time i think he's a real good horse. I just think there's gonna be a lot of pressure upfront. but i take maximum. Security probably will edge out his law. Just laws gonna be authentic this race. I think he's a three is going to be maturing in the ball. Maybe not to the degree american faraday. But he's going to get a better effort than he did. Irby and move forward to me. Those are the top three horses. I'm going to think of probables becoming old improbable again. Maybe he's the new and improved and unbeatable improbable. But i'll go and i'll throwing a long shot in the race. He's gonna win but again factors acid a lot of people off on tacitus but and that's the reason why the super factor he's your eissa fifteen second third fourth against these horses does the pace potential here. Help tacitus rachel. There seems to be a lot of pay signed on here. Yeah i was just gonna say that. I honestly tacitus as the one that everyone has had the big bandwagon for and he just never been able to put it together. He might get set up for this but there is. There's a lotta early speed. And i'm literally just speak dow deep this races. How many different ways. I'm literally gonna go against everything. Bob said i don't have tons On top i went ahead. Him when put him third. I've to go with authentic. I think that you know authentic. I was leaning towards says the loss Thing but with his inside draw Talk right now you can get covered up. It's been said before he doesn't like to be covered up. I think that that's going to happen. And when he doesn't get the race that his way he's not gonna have the day so with that being said i wi with authentic. I think he's gonna be fine from the outside. He's got enough speed to get out there. And then i went with the to to the law next. Because i think maybe he'll still he still impressive. I couldn't leave him out of my exact off. And then thomas is hot i he likes the mile a he looks so good in the morning. And i wanna be a thomas on top girl. Like that's what i want to be but You know he's seven years old. He hasn't raced in a long time in. It worked his benefit. You know he might come back in in ba- fresh and be ready to go. But i just don't think that's going to be the case. Today they start telling you know when they get older even as impressive as he is Not to say that he hasn't kept this horse in great form. I mean he looks like a four year old on the track in the warnings. But then i'm gonna rounded out with maximum security. I really went with authentic. After to the law drew inside on top of the fact that bob backer said that authentic is looking the best right now and in the best form right now you know when he's been interviewed he the first of the three he mentions in the classic is authentic and as You know. Bob said earlier when we first started. You know when bob says something you listen and i am not going to be the girl. That doesn't listen to mr boffin. So i'm gonna go nine to four ten in this extremely wide open race. I think that this is just. It's tough we didn't even talk about my standards. Who has an amazing shot. I totally agree with bob. The whole reason why you should include taxes higher ticket is because everyone's forgot about tacitus so he'll come back and show us all like ha ha. Just wait until the biggest race jokes on you guys so Those are my takes and my thoughts on the classic such a competitive field this year. Gentlemen it would be incredible if this becomes the day that maximum security finally crosses the wire i with. No interference no disqualifications or anything else. He is a star star-crossed any horses been in the last fifty years. I can do this all day long. But thank you. Rachel mclaughlin bobby hall. Thank you both so much.

"Sat here in this race so neither of you think that all that pace jackie's warrior essential quality. Next dreamers disease is gonna wear out those front runners. You'd think jackie's warrior bob essential quality. Rachel are still going to be there at the end. Well i say. I like sitting on my pick. I think he's going to benefit from all that speaker they i do agree with. It's going to be a lot of speed. I'm gonna go with him. Sitting on go on top jackie's word his second in the exact. I think he's act. I think it'd be very hot pace. Now that's gonna make it difficult for jackie's warrior which he really hasn't had a face at saratoga. I also i mean reinvestment breaks. I don't know what to think he had to chase. You might get workout better trip here. But i'm just not sure didn't seem in the in the hope for the race has got longer. You didn't seem to relish the extra distance. So as i say i really like when i show hunting ongo if the pay scenario. That's like you just said. Barry uninteresting one and thirty two one as camp hope which is just looking who could come off the pace in maybe reinvestment. Risk a little bit. But if you were going to go at that angle. I think maybe the one camp hope one of a couple from kenny mcpeek in this race won by four last time outbreak. in the maiden. I know it's a big ask to come into breeders cup juvenile race right off a main breaking win but twelve days ago. Yeah twelve days ago but the running style suits. What about. Keep me in mind. You're overlooking jose ortiz closing on a twenty to one shot and he got a pretty decent trip when he was second in the breeders. Futurity and row patino. Do doro is third nationally. In training's never won a grade one race though so it's easy to overlook but if the pace falls apart i wouldn't throw out. Keep me in mind number six either. So those are friday races that we're going to look at an old by the way you're also all overlooking rahm bauer at fifteen two one. He has a really bad post. He has hobby or castellano in anybody can improve a horse. i think. Hobby our casts a lot of might but he has a a tough post. That's gonna take care of it for us on the friday card be don't have time to do all fourteen races so we're going to move to saturday now and this race that i wanna get to. Next is just fascinating. Which is the philly and mayor turf with all of these europeans. And all of these. Americans or north american shall we say this is a tremendous race. I know where bob's probably going. He's gotta be going rushing fall here. Yeah i'm a unabashed rushing fall fan. I'd been on her actually before day. One i'll always remember is before which it was too. She was supposed to run on labor day. Weekend at saratoga. Either going to be the sunday on monday and it poured. I mean it. Was that just four buckets. I talked to the owner bob edwards. This was congenital about stuff that we started talking about fairly rushing for. We said he was disappointed that she didn't get in that. You can get her maiden and what they were thinking of doing was going right to the unabomber the woodbine race as a maiden so that they could get the automatic bid and i said she's that good and he said yeah and i followed her. And that's all she's been really bene- quality philly jihad some travel they working on the dirt like that alabama and she was never the same since then. She's bounced back. I think she's going to get a nice setup behind mary and to me she's mean. Mary seems like an overlay here. Doesn't she rachel. Yeah you know. I have in my selections but definitely from graham motion especially with early speed the way that i saw this one. I think that the early speed may be. You know bob's pig and then the four main mary that you just mentioned so thanks for setting me up for that perfectly. If they hook up on the front end i was thinking. Maybe the two sister charlie. So i went to six four one in here and this one you know she can come from off the pace of you look back on last year in august in the beverly ended up winning by three lengths coming from way off the pace in most of her races. She's pretty far off the pace especially in her wins. So i was Kinda considering if they do hook up those two than to the two sister. Charlie can pick up the pieces and she's only been off the board in one of her lifetime starts. All seventeen of her lifetime starts sixteen. Which i've been in the money. So she does impresses me anna. She's she's a six year old mayor but In chad brown his previous percentages in graded stakes. Twenty three percent. You know he does really well off the layoff as well which she hasn't raced since august. So maybe he was giving her the time you know sometimes with older horses. If you're anticipating putting into a big race may we see now detail later. Give them a nice break. And he's twenty seven percent with the forty six to ninety days away. So i like sister charlie in this race for me in the in the villian mattress i also would take a look at our doria coming from europe who stalked on a slow pace in the predispo- opera. Not as good as tar nawa. Who will talk about later in the turf. But she's not facing tarnaud. She's facing not the greatest european contingent and an average. I think american contingent. I mean sister. Charlie to me all of what you're saying notwithstanding rachel i think she's lost a step and that may be enough for a horse or horse like Or doria to get a piece of for here or civil union. I was just looking at civil union as well should mcgahey is entry in this race. That's another on the same as what you just said. you know. she's inform and she comes from off the pace so either one of those ten or eleven could also pull off the upset i think. What do you think her ceiling is. Do we even know what her ceiling is bob. She's won four straight.

"It was originally supposed to happen albeit without spectators in the building at keeneland race course remember the kentucky derby was run in early september and the preakness in early october. Several year end championships will be decided at the breeders cup as they should be and possibly horse of the year on this show it would be too laborious to go through wall fourteen races. So we're going to take half of them and analyze them so you'll be informed when you watch and wager to help us do that. We welcome in one of our frequent handicapping guests. Bobby hauled who operates the new york. Hot list handicapping service and we also welcome. For the first time rachel mclaughlin. Who was one of the simulcast analysts at indiana grand as a matter of fact indiana grand racing as we record. This and rachel is kind enough to rearrange your schedule to have time to break down the breeders cup races with us and we are glad to have her. So let's get going. We're going to start with the juvenile fillies. And you get upsets. In this race. Big ones ria antonia thirty two to one take charge brandy. Sixty two to one and i could go on. There are more. Do you see an upset in this. Race rachel actually. Why was simply ravishing in here. I had a couple of bigger presley plays later. I know a lot of people are against the favorite princess more I've read a lot of handicappers. That are you know fading her in this race there against her and i did. I wanna guests or simply ravishing. I've been watching the morning works every morning for the past three or four days ever since halloween and just looks really good. Can you make peak train coming out of that grade. Want a mile sixteenth. Which is today's distance. One by over six links. I just think that she is going to pull up. The upset today are in this race and coming off a bullet to. I really really like her. She's got The highest figure in that last race as well. I look at the brisbane pages. And now a ninety seven and i was just so impressive to me and undefeated in all of her. Three career starts. I think simply ravishing is going to be the one cause princes nor is trying to make it four in a row. I in miami capping. It's impressive when they can go with those consecutive wins. That does take it out of them. Sometimes these are only two year old fillies. So i'm going to go against princess in here and i'm gonna go simply ravishing differences nor africa last week at this quotes. May i think it was pretty revealing. He's her speed figures of slow which they are. Some of the others is. But i know what a superstar looks like. And she's a superstar so act gotta go with that baffert knows worse. He's talking much higher about her. Say i think the neiman safe demean so I'm gonna say i'm gonna stick with our. I do think simply were having a heck of a good orders and it is a good quality. Feel because you got more since. I you know this out of the office certainly really good horse. I mean all she does winning girls daddy to for to its qualities. They'll but a writing. The superstar looks like and v thinks. That's what she is on. I'll go with it. I like richard thinking. Rachel ken mcpeek. Who's one five also bias. Still looking for his first breeders cup. But i'm going with this other horse at a price crazy beautiful at twenty two one. I mean she was no mattress simply ravishing or girl daddy in kentucky but if you watched the The last race she tried to pick her way through the back. She got bounced around. There was a wall of horses at the top of the stretch and she finished well. Maybe she doesn't win this. But i think she is completely under laid at twenty two one here. I think she has a big chance against these horses. And i'm with you. I don't think princess nor is i mean. Who did she beat out there in the west. Who is she beaten. Yeah that's that's that's a great point. I have the exact same subaru as bob. I want one seventy five. But i look at crazy beautiful because this is another one. I think the future star. Friday card is amazing in crazy. Beautiful looks really good in the morning and she's a very very classy. She looks old beyond her years. She goes out there. You know like a pro. So she i think is an excellent long shot to put into a super and you almost think maybe that second last time out in that race you know. He was testing her and she did well and could improve off the effort as we know improving horses a very dangerous horse. So that's definitely one to look out for bryan hernandez i mean. He's such an amazing jockey. So i agree with you there. That's a really nice long shot. She has princess. New are new are on the same page there. I definitely think she's good. Don't get me wrong. She's good. She could come out there and make us look like idiots and bob could say ha ha ha ha but i'm not going to be able to swallow the chalk that she's going to be really really low. I think jay breeders cup juvenile. Bob i believe you were there last year at the breeders cup when peter urgency trained storm the court one the juvenile at forty five to one biggest upset and juvenile history. And i think you've also been there. Most of the year to see jackie's warrior the favourite in this year's juvenile at a much less price to how good is jackie's warrior. Can he answered the to turn question. He is really good. I mean i you know. I yeah i did see him special. You wonder how the horses i thought maybe reinvestment risk is going to catch him but he wasn't. He is really active. Good horse problem. I see this race is going to be out. That really wasn't happening so much in the saratoga reason he's getting atop challenge. He's got enough to win. But this certainly i'm looking. I'm looking at it closer in the race to benefit from that commands. A horse sitting. On go i think is a real nice Has ability in this race. I really thought he put in a real good workout Putting real didn't race at churchill downs on derby day to win that the Than training grade from according to his connections He he he's he's the play. I'm then going. Because of the price. And certainly i do think that jackie's word is a legit. What are you see here. Rachel i also think jackie's warrior is legit horses while but at seven five. I'm gonna try to beat jackie's warrior with essential quality. I have said nongo to round out my try. I completely agree with what bob said just to add to that. If you arched non go in the mornings he is aptly named. He is definitely sitting on go and he is one of the standouts in this race. I think as far as what he looks like in the morning for sure. So i'm going five seven nine three in this race that i do like essential quality on top here. That win at keeneland is the difference for me. Because you know jackie's warriors coming from new york so shipping in and is trying keeneland for the first time whereas essential qualities already proven at today's distance at the track on the surface and won convincingly by over three lengths You know a great one as well and brad cox this year just on fire. You can't say enough about his sources even his string here in indiana. I mean it's like a running joke whenever i handicap obits special way. Let's not go against brown cox here. But he's definitely. His percentage is going up in graded stakes as well. And it's a twenty two percent win clip right now and coming off. This bullet work. I just think the five essential qualities poised a coffee.

"Walking down the street and florida florida where i live High forty and florida people would think the world is coming to an end. That's the that's the difference between mornings in kentucky and mornings in florida probably about thirty or forty degree. But we've got a power packed lineup. Once again today here on the program. We had great show yesterday today. The show jockey. Joe talamo will join us. He's got three huge amounts in the breeders cup races girl daddy on friday then both intimacy and ever who is kind of surprising morning line favorite or one of the favorites in the breeders cup mile this year. I was a horse that many of us hadn't even heard of until maybe two months ago and he just burst on the scene and he is one of the ones in the breeders cup mile this year trainer. Peter miller will join us today as well. He also has three runners. In this year's breeder's cup avocado texas wedge and ceesay rocket. Unfortunately i think the horse pete's pete would have had his best chance with this year mo fours Did not make the race. He probably would have been one of the ones in the breeders cup mile. He is super impressive. In southern california came down with a little bit of a an injury. Nothing life threatening in fact. Nothing career threatening sounded like they're looking forward to having a back in training next year and we'll get to talk to him about his breeders cup runners. when he's on acacia. Courtney will be with us each morning right around nine forty a m. She is on the grounds at keeneland. And she's got she's got her eyes and ears open and she is seen everything. That's happening with these breeders cup runners as they get their final preparations in for the big days. Friday and saturday. All the works are in. But she's getting to see these runners on the track and especially how some of the european runners are acclimating to the united states and and being in lexington mostly most of them for the first time in their careers walker hancock. The president of claiborne farm. He will also join us this morning. They've got their represented by three runners on friday including plum alley in the juvenile fillies turf. Five runners representing their stallions on saturday including halliday in the mile and war of will in the dirt mile. And what's intriguing about that is that not only is war of will representing them with his stallion. Being by one of their stallions but war of will will join the claiborne stallion roster next year in two thousand twenty one. So they're going to be really really interested to see how war of will does not that. Everyone won't everyone else won't be interested but you know world will obviously already classic winner in this country if you could be a preakness winner and a breeders cup winner. I would imagine that would help. The stud fee tremendously jude. Yeah absolutely but You know he's already done enough. He's a beautiful horse. He's got tons of ability he's shown it on the race tracks of turf and dirt now so very versatile Lots of things to like about war will in addition we mentioned at the top of the show that this is actually winstar week here on the network all week on h. r. and we will be celebrating all things winstar. We're actually going to speak to the president and a winstar. Farm elliott walden tomorrow morning on the breeders cup countdown. But they've got something going this year that. I'm not sure we've ever had yet jude with the breeders cup. Three runners in this year's breeder's cup classic improbable. Tom state ta global campaign. All will join the winstar stallion roster for twenty twenty one not only that they're stallions phenomenal. Aside from those three who were on the horizon. Spikes town fed biz distorted humor constitution. With of course is the sire of tis. The law take charge into the tis. Now was there. He's just recently been pensioned. Just a who's who on the stallion roster not only currently but starting next year at winstar and i i don't know i don't know what horses they follow more in that race. I mean they are the part owners of improbable and they're involved with global campaign. Thomson todd joining their roster next year. But i do they watch improbable a little bit closer just because of the ownership june. Oh i i don't know i i don't think it you know it's not gonna matter till they come down the lane and see who's in front and they'll be cheering during for that horse You know when you have several horses in the race you kind of have to have your eyes on all of them so they'll be paying attention. There's no doubt about it and But which whichever one does well they'll be. They'll be thrilled with if they all do well. That'd be great you know. I'm sure they'd like to have a one-two-three finish. Like charlie whittingham in the hollywood gold cup or something you know so they could use that for an advertisement later on but Yeah i don't think it really matters necessarily which one their their room for all of them i. I wonder if they go to bed tomorrow. Night with the dream of global campaign in front by five at the top of the stretch with improbable and tom's day closing and everyone else kind of floundering in behind them. And those three just separating from the field probably not going to happen that way. They're way too many other believe in that race but those three are certainly three. That have big chances in the breeders cup. Classic on saturday and windstar will be watching. Speaking of big horses phase. Tipton has got a big sale..

"Seemed like it took a long long time to get here but the breeders cup here. It's actually happening and believe it or not. It may be the strongest collection of fields. We've seen in the breeders cup ever yet. It's a fantastic group of horses. A just really excited for friday and saturday Been studying for a couple of weeks now and got everything sort of lined out. We got the undercard. Pp's last night and there's some good races on the non breeders cup side of things as well as the breeders cup. So it's gonna be exciting couple of days. I'm very fortunate to be able to be there in person. So i'm looking forward to and you mentioned being there in person. That's something that unfortunately a lot of fans will not be able to do. This is still twenty twenty which took unfortunately means that things are not as they normally are because of the pandemic and everything. That's happened in the world a this year. The breeders cup like the triple crown races like a lot of every day racing around the country will be had will be conducted without fans. There will be a limited amount of fans there. You mentioned your going. Obviously the the horsemen the people involved with the the races at keelan. Friday and saturday will be allowed to go. The we select players. The breeders will be allowed to go for for the most part. The general public will not be able to attend the breeders. Cup live at keelan this year. That certainly hasn't hurt the handle in a lot of the places we've seen the handle up just about every race track. We've seen in the country this year during this pandemic season but we'll have to be watching from afar either online or at our local racetracks or on television. Of course what's been going on at keelan so far. Well they did. Have the post position. Draw yesterday for all fourteen of this year's breeders cup races a few months ago judy. We would have thought that you know. We didn't know how many how well the breeders cup would come off. We didn't know how many horses would be pointed this year. We really didn't know what was going on with racing even as recently as five or six months ago but here we are early. part of november. A hundred eighty four horses entered yesterday in the breeders cup races. And i think even more amazing that thirty nine runners from overseas headed over and entered into the breeders cup races. We didn't know what the travel restrictions were going to be. We didn't know how. If any of the euro's we're to be pointed to the breeders cup this year because of the pandemic in quarantining and the protocols nine just a bevy of runners from overseas especially in in the turf races both on friday and saturday. It's really fantastic. Gathering of the world's best runners both days and with the exception of the breeder's cup juvenile fillies jude every race. A very big. Yeah but he. Each races deep and and There's several contenders it's going to be a great betting card because there's gonna be some mistakes made along the way People are gonna ignore certain horses and they're going to pop up and win. Like i always say some great one horses gonna finish last in pretty much every breeders cup race. So you know. The they're unpredictable sometimes. Bite if you look for value if you look for those horses that are doing well and coming up to the raising good order. Sometimes you can get a little extra to three points on them. Makes a big difference. At the end of the day you mentioned that the past performances are out for the full cards. Both friday and saturday at than we can tell you weather wise. It's supposed to be great this week. It's actually cold right now at keeneland temperature somewhere around forty one forty two degrees and you can see the people reporting from keelan dressed up like they're like there's a squall coming but it's beautiful just a little chilly right now. Supposed to get up into the low sixties. Today by friday and saturday mostly sunny temperatures in the high sixties. Maybe even around seventy degrees on saturday. Great news for everyone. We should have fast and firm conditions and especially if you're somebody looking at ad playing the european runners. They don't like it too warm when the when the breeders cups are at warm weather places when they used to be at gulfstream park even some years when they're out at santa anita and it's warmer or more humid. The euros don't seem to like it as much. I don't think we're going to have those issues this weekend. Like i said high sixties maybe seventy degrees not. Nearly the humidity sunny skies should be great racing conditions for everyone. Well we mentioned the post position draw. Were yesterday for all fourteen races. The only real news big news yesterday was the fact that one of the juvenile fillies princess secret tested positive for a steroid and was not allowed to enter the breeders cup. Now she may have she certainly going to be one of the longer shots in the field But with princess secret not running a field. That already wasn't going to be overflowing is even shorter as now that breeder's cup juvenile fillies Let's see. I believe they not not that many runners in there maybe an seven seven seven horsfield and it's down to seven so you know it's real talented bunch but a seven field still a tough race to handicap even with those seven runners. Okay coming up on the show.

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. California he's got A. Maiden the number three missed your free. Daughter of intimacy out of a smart strike mayor plenty of turf pedigree there I like the way he is kind of brought this philly along to sprints on the all weather three weeks apart one on. Labor.

Now, she gets the to stretch out to the flat mile twos. For instance, is one of my favorite angles she gets the. Turf which I think she's she's bread for.

Goes on a little bit of a mission glorious. The outside has a ton of speed she broke her maiden last out against California reds over the all weather at Golden Gate. So I think there's some pace in here I'm hoping it sets up for the maiden mischief free the two inside phillies make sense consternation I'm sonar as well I'll I'll I'll take Mr free boxer with the two eight, two, one on mischief free I. Hope we get it reached number eight on Saturday

But the to turn distance is question for him and You know there's GonNa be some other. They're pretty good I'm I'm really intrigued in their by war of well who is switching back to the dirt. I thought all year that he could be better on dirt than he was on turf be better on dirt is a four year old and I'm so sight to see him switch back because if he was running in the Breeders Cup Mile, he would just get killed in there but I think he's got a shot to win the dirt mile and if he does run well there, they can still run them in the court before they retire him so. I like that move by. The connections war. Will.

"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
Third horse dies in three-day run at Santa Anita
"Santa Anita has reported its third horse deaths in just the past three days which brings the total of forty two the number of forces that are died at the track in less than thirteen months of both Friday and Saturday veterinarians use nice horses that have broken their ankles during races and then yesterday another one had to be put down after being badly hurt when it collided with another words on the training track the latest deaths brought fresh condemnations of the track by animal rights activists who continued to protest outside the gates this weekend place one of the latest horse racing deaths intensity is no stranger to one big time trainer I'm containable was trained by two time breeders Cup winning trainer Miller the horse had to be put down after an ankle injury it said I need on Saturday as the forty first horse racing death of the tracks since December twenty eighteen it was the third horse trained by Miller to die

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.
37th horse dies at Santa Anita racetrack since Christmas
"Two a veteran horse trainer and owner think the track at Santa Anita in southern California may be behind an epidemic of fatal accidents KCBS reporter Bob Butler says thirty seven race horses have died at that race track since Christmas the latest Saturday from an injury suffered during the high profile breeders Cup classic had to be euthanized after breaking his leg at the breeders Cup Bob has says the track at Santa Anita has been having trouble for years it is not all weather unlike the wanted Golden Gate fields they're going to put in the same track we have a Golden Gate which isn't to create a track and our engineering here is very very low S. isn't Sam company owns both venues and he hears the going to replace the Santa Anita track so if they do that they put that track is senator that was solved two or three problems one is they wouldn't have a problem with the weather the second thing is we would even need the trend track they can they can make a double wide terror of course that would be better what were the terms phrases and everything like that
"breeders cup" Discussed on How To Bet Horse Racing Podcast
"Of the how to bet horse racing podcast on video today and your normal host Ed de Rosas actually going to be the guest. So Ed's got some strong opinions on the Breeders Cup and we want to get right to them. Now Ed you and I we take in a lot of data every day in our jobs and the Breeders Cup can be a little bit overwhelming so on your on your first pass through these two days of past performances. What really stood out to you I like Tokyo numbers Jim The first is the class rating because we actually have class ratings for a lot of the international runners so really beneficial to see how the class over there. Stacks up to the class here now. Obviously the ARC is a better race than most of our turf races but some of these come from group to group three races and the good ones match up really well with ours or better and sometimes horses. You get a little bit of a reputation. Don't match up as well. And that's an opportunity to bet again so class rating something I look at and then prime power is definitely a must have especially for the dirt races and the thing that struck me is competitive racing this year but not a ton of standouts under now. Obviously we have midnight. Bi-zonal beach you'll get to a race like the sprint. Who has some obvious superstars very competitive group same with the filly and Mare sprint? Coffeen come dancing so handicappers I think are going to have to make some hard decisions about where to lean because one thing you definitely don't want to do in these fields is used the top two choices in every race. You'll go broke right. Well I do want to hear more about some of the specific courses that you like The Post draw on Monday. One of the big story lines was who had drawn the rail that includes the favorites in both of the juvenile dirt. Races Cova Fay who you mentioned How do you think these? These rail draws impact these races. I think on balance most trainers would prefer not the rail. Not because you can't win from there but any indiscretions mistakes that happen or exasperated from the rail. So if you're a front running type and you missed the break. You're out of your element right away. Now if you break on top and cruise like maybe a coffee. They decide to do great. The rail can actually help but the margin for error. I think is a long gated from the rail not necessarily a negative but if it is a negative. It's more of a negative from the rail juvenile races. Not as big a deal. I think the two year olds separate themselves a little more. You get that sort of stretching impact because some two year olds are so clearly better than others and I do. Think that's the case with Dennis's moment I think he's one of the more likely winners on the weekend and the rail did nothing to make me. Think otherwise Just two year old. He's going to be in the first light no matter what happens so unless things go really wrong as it didn't his debut when he threw the Jockey I don't see that as a negative so certainly positives. I think more more than anything overall though. I hope people do that against the rail because I don't think it's that big of an issue. All that Catalina cruiser Kofi I'd say or the to have the most to lose just because in a sprint. There's less time to to make up and be tactical so those are the two hurt the most but even for them. It's not as big an issue for me right. I agree with that Listening to you break down the classic with Joe Christopher a few minutes ago it was very apparent that you're against some of the biggest names on the card Omaha Beach Mackenzie Midnight Zoo Those are the superstars. So tell us why you're against The biggest stars on the Breeders Cup days. Well I'll start with Omaha beach because this horse's reputation is as if he split the atom. While certainly I respect that. He's won multiple grade one races. He's one of the few three year old males this year to do so. I cannot play him at a short price in grade. One second off a layoff after after the number he put up in the breeders. Excuse me in the The six Furlong race the sprint championship too fast too soon. Richard Mandela's one of the best ever but it short price. I just have too many questions. Aken you replicate that effort be. How does the to turn mile suit? What he wants to do was going to be the favorite in the Kentucky Derby. He just happened to be fast enough in the Breeders Cup. Excuse me in the Sprint Championship at Santa Anita. The dirt miles a totally different ballgame. I have too many questions that are short price. Jim and the field isn't all that deep. Admittedly I do think they pick the soft spot of the three they were leaning to. That just means he's going to be the shortest price of the three spots as well. So I'm against a lot of hype for a for a horse way by exactly chance. Lots one of the horses to beat in the sprint. But yeah it's just too much hype so tell me what you do with these horses when you when you're against a heavy favourite on a day like the Breeders Cup. That's an opportunity to win a lot of money so way to go about it. Well for me Especially looking ahead to the classic where against Mackenzie the race before as the turf and I do like bricks and mortar He's a horse. Who after that Pegasus Turf Cup? I thought he could be any kind. And then I guess he lost some luster because he only beat a horse by a nose fairgrounds. But as far as I'm concerned you've had off the grade one races he has this year. You deserve to be the favourite and the turf. He is But he's a favorite. I'm not trying to be so I'M GONNA lean on him and try to go as deep as I can in the classic and same with The race before which is the distaff who I'm against midnight two so I'm against two favorites and use my single and then it doesn't matter who wins the other two as long as it's not the favorite. Omaha beach is a little different earlier on the car but sister. Charlie is a horse. I am very much for So she's one I'm GonNa Lean on and we've seen the dirt mile produce some big big numbers now granted horses like Gold Incense and Liam's map one at short prices but Dakota phone wanted a big price at Churchill So it has produced some prices and if you beat Omaha Beach House now all year long. You've been talking about sister Charlie. Tell us a little bit more about why. She's one of the favorites that you actually are bullish on. Yeah I wish magical. We're still in the race because she could've added some price to sister. Charlie think we could've got two to one now. We're looking at even money at best. Maybe even odds-on so it's it's pretty Important to me to find some prices around her so beating a horse like Omaha beach would help But I do think. She's the most likely winner of any Breeders Cup race. She's just one of those. I'm not a big replay guy. I know and I'm looking at when I'm looking at a horse. I leave that to the experts but I do think I've seen enough racist Jim. I know the extremes know when something looks really bad no one something really good and when I was there on million day when she won the Beverly d. She looked as good as a horse could possibly law granted. She was the best horse in the race. But she took it to another level in my mind and I think she special and I go back to how a handicapped the Diana earlier this year when she faced rushing. Faw faced a few others. My handicapping thought was if I'm going to pick this horse to be enable or winks. I'm going to pick her to win an American race. And there's no enabler winks here in the Breeders Cup. I'm sticking with her. Well there you have some very strong opinions to work with Now we just have to figure out how to make money with them some final thoughts on managing your bank roll over these two days and how to make the most out of these strong opinions. I think Breeders Cup Day is a day where whatever your strong opinions are whether it's four horse or against the Horse and we've talked about both ends of the spectrum here That's where you need to put most of your capital so if there's a happens to be a sequence where you don't have any of those opinions it's okay to lay off. The money is so good when you connect Breeders Cup that you don't want to not be able to use an eighth or ninth choice with a sister Charlie that you give any sort of chance to because Oh I played the pick three yesterday and turf races. I knew nothing about you. Know Two year olds coming over from Europe so to me it's all about being judicious and making sure if your opinion comes in That you cash. Thanks for these opinions. Thanks to you for dropping in on the how to bet horse racing podcast and good luck at Santa Anita..
Handicapping the Breeders' Cup
"It is finally here the world championships the Breeders Cup for the thirty six time and for the tenth time at Santa Anita it's time to handicap the world championship hip and for that we bring into our experts one we've had regularly and one for the first time we welcome back Ed Derosa of the brisket handicapping service and for the first time we bring in Molly Joe Rosen we followed her on twitter a lot it's good to finally bring her onto the show so again we said we're not going to handicap all of these races were GonNa pick the seven or so that we think have really good competition and will go with those and we'll start on the Friday card with the juvenile a race that has been diminished a bit with the defection of one of the early favorites Max field for Godolphin so we're really left with three big horses here to talk about Denis's moment the favourite eight rings and Scabbard Dennis's moment has been very consistent through his writer in his debut and then just missed a track record at Ellis Park can you really call a two year old and overwhelming favourite. What do you think here let's start with molly I think it's right open race I could not touch horse at eight to five not as you said not with two year olds you know making third and fourth fifth career starts I mean to me that just is crazy and I love him think he's phenomenally talented could wind up being the second coming of Secretariat obviously he's a freak of nature having won his to really his to start saying oh he's got that through the writer and the debut but you know he's one by twenty one lane I mean you can't knock a horse like that Dale is great with these types of horses he's prepped well he's looked great you know you take nothing away from him but eight to five in a eight Horsfield because not a MAC field scratch I can't touch a horse at eight five I do think it is a really wide open race I'm GonNa look at other horses you know take nothing away from eight rings also a horse who has done nothing wrong also worth who lost a job I do think a horse like scabbard for me is more interesting this is a horse who breaks his maiden by five then steps up and they had some has some learning to do and Eddie neely is great with these types of horses and I think if you're looking for price and you don't WanNa go towards one of the more so obvious sources for me a horse like Scabbard who's on the improve has really done nothing wrong in his career but you know seems to have maybe you have to overcome some some tendencies to find rebel trips of course to me like Scabbard is super intriguing? Ed What do you think well we're we're going to write off the rip because I'm all in on Dennis's moment and he's the only horse I'm using molly Jo Sung as praises appropriately and with the scratch AMAC's field unfortunately is is backers aren't even eight to five now so if that wasn't good enough for you Molly Joe I'm sure you're not gonna be happy with even money or six to five but the this horse You know the maiden win at Alice just blew everyone stores off so what can you say super professional in the Iroquois though defacto second career start I read got a handle for this horse got to test drive them so to speak and we've seen Dale ship out to the who've no at Santa Anita perform well with not this time it was second do horse I had a lot of respect for classic empire so I think he's early the horse to be an in a very competitive Friday car he's my big single day I'm with Molly I think scabbard had some trouble in finishing second today this is moment in the Iraq war and I think it's GonNa come down to those two I'm not discounting Dennis as moment but I think scabbard has to be more seriously considered than five to one lead move to the filly and mare sprint I'm really torn here about cafe when we get to the Saturday card I mean she won the Edgewood and the Miss preakness so maybe I'm not as impressed as other people are by the way she runs ed can she run her race from the rail She can for me either the bigger question and the rail is a question the bigger question is is shipping out west and she is not coming for a bar and that is it's been out there very long Dale with Dennis's moments that we talked about shipped out about a week ago see Asmussen's been there with his crew for seven her week so I am eager to see how horses on Friday to that hadn't chipped in versus the ones that have been there awhile local horses etc if I perceive a bias in that regard that might sway me offer as the favorite I will say on raw talent I absolutely think she is the best filly in this field for test was incredible energy titan or Churchill albeit against lesser was what you would want to see he coming into a race like this offer race like the test so I'm a believer but keeping an open mind and this is one of those cases where I am going to use information as it becomes available throughout the Friday card to see how liberal liberal I wanNA use her on Saturday molly what do you make of come dancing I'm not saying how do they poll she's got two and a Half Lake leaving don the destroyer next toward the inside at third special relativity first half of the year then the second half clearly has talent what do you make of her you know she's obviously you know a a really really lovely horses cool to see Carlos Martin on the big stage I I've known Carlos a real long time and he's just a phenomenal horsemen and She did have you know crazy good first half of the year her her win margins were certainly bigger flashier there was certainly more space there but running second to midnight visa in the VIPs you know other than that she's comeback her ballerina was beautiful her gallant bloom was beautiful I do worry a little bit about whether or not she can run in a straight I'm and that especially at Santa Anita we've seen over the years what was her name the Philly that ran second to beholder in the the distaff I wanNA say executive privilege we've seen horses who may not be able to run in a straight line not get there in time Santa Anita in the past and that concerns me a little bit when you do have other really consistent Phillies in here like FFA ed do you see attention long shot here in this race because I'm not loving come dancing I liked but don't love cafe what about dawn the destroyer will become a from the back and I guess you were saying you gotta see the Friday card to see whether anyone really can close at Santa Anita but what do you think about a long shot here that's actually and afterward oh so is this a matter where if you don't like the two favorites you chuck them and use them all I could see that as a strategy especially if you really where let's move to the turf to the mile not the dirt mile we'll get to the dirt mile let's go to the Turf Mile and here you've got to Phillies the headliners got stormy and Uni but now you've got circus maximus with a real European threat here it's not been the best year for eight and O'Brien really do you trust circus maximus here not in any way shape size or form and not at that price just in case you're wondering if I

I believe that was Baffert's I ever Breeders Cup victory yes it was yes it was one thousand nine hundred ninety two thirty it was born that year so oh really well we're finally reaching a younger demo bobby isn't that Nice Hard Manian ran down the Philly Mia Faira yes in late strikes CD for for Derek Meredith exactly very small stable Eric Meredith actually well Jeff Jeff Meredith went to University of Arizona's racetrack no relation was by Cox's Ridge and it was just one of those things if you ask Eddie about analogy tell you look at it's just business he said but bobby gave me year Bob Baffert but he just felt in his heart card mania was was the now wars and he is right thirty sloughs ran third with David floors maybe maybe the most maybe the most impressive race of that season order the most memorable readers was the classic the biggest long shot that we've had and by the way you're wrong about who ran third Breeders Cup Sprint who was it was killed at time you're gonNA make a statement I'm GonNa make sure who is fourth in there okay that's fine anyway what was the most memorable moment besides Bob Baffert being on the show well I would say I would say it's something to do with Jerry Bailey a French horse when classic was that Drexel crew at ninety nine to one which he was actually more than ninety nine to one that day okay and that was one where everyone was looking down after the race who I don't and we have we've had long shot since but nothing close to that yeah and I don't think Jerry was just the man for the remainder of the decade the Horse was actually a one hundred thirty three two one Hannah Nida of of the years that we've had the Breeders Cup here what are some of the performances that stick out another one's gotta be I believe it was the ninety three distaff with Hollywood wildcat and and Posse on Eddie Lewis Stick about a sixteenth of a mile out and if you talk to him now he says that he panicked but you watched the film and Man if he panicked only he knew it because he looked at he d cool and came down their head and with Chris McCarron on poss- Yana who had won the race The year before you know in Florida in and and it was Hollywood wildcat that day I tried to talk to Neil Drysdale about that for a press release we put out or one Breeders Cup Mile Gold Cova has won the Breeders Cup really some tremendous performance Yada trumps everything Zucchini squash she seems to trump every that was that was the moment a lot of the old timers. We'll tell you the first fifty years of Santa Anita Johnny Longden going out a winner here on a horse named awards royal that a lot of people didn't give all that much of a chance You know that was the nineteen sixty six San Juan Capistrano mile three quarters on turf hadn't had with bobby Korean plaque the length of the stretch and long and went out a winner that that was n- win number six thousand thirty two but then we come to the modern age and Xanada it looked impossible as was noted in travers call and that was one that was a race that you knew you'll always remember where you were when that race was run still gives me goosebumps to just to watch that replay back and it's the ten year anniversary of course her winning that classic and it was how did she with right and adorned with a statue of course in the paddock area here at Santa Anita one of the most beautiful statues I've ever seen and you know as we look forward to the ten year anniversary of God affiliate in the in the classic this here I mean how much more hype does that give the history of that race even this it does draw attention to the ten year anniversary I'm sure the guys on NBC they're going to have a lot of a lot of fun with it not speaking of the classic you just had Mr Bamford on he's making the jockey change I I say this I think he still had the met mile in his aw little bit even though there have been a few races they won the Whitney I believe in any way they got beat here on the awesome again another horse it got beaten the awesome again think he got eliminated at the break and it's one of those deals where it might be it might be a blessing in disguise I think he's six two one morning line and I would be shocked if he's lower than that because he is pretty much been a forgotten horse in the talks right now it's whether or not you like McKinsey or one of the East Coast runners that seems to be the way many people are thinking right now so.
