"Chance that nest could possibly be favored and certainly secret oath. I think she's being almost a little bit underappreciated in a sense considering she was the favorite going into Arkansas Derby. So I think fans are certainly might come back a little bit more around to her chances. And she could run a huge race as well. So that was Kathleen O and hidden connection. Both are just, I think, dynamic closer, especially Kathleen obie and undefeated for showman gay. He, but you know, hidden connection, not that ran a huge race in the fairgrounds oaks and she likes Churchill winning that two year old state glass fall. So yeah, in terms of just the depth, it's the best Kentucky oaks I can remember. I can remember in a long, long time. Some of your prison net numbers on that, James. So looking forward to it. Thanks so much, guys. Really appreciate the call, Matt. Yeah, we do kind of take for granted. It seems like the Kentucky oaks every year because The Kentucky Derby is The Kentucky Derby, but Matt's right. This year's Kentucky oaks. It has not just one or two potential stars in the race, has 6 or 7 potential stars in the field. I mean, we had it a few years ago where mid midnight bizu and monomoy girl faced off. We had it last year was a great field with gamine running against she dares the devil and Swiss skydiving. In the race as well. And they were obviously very, very good Phillies. But that's right, this is a year where we've got four or 5 potential superstars. I'm not sure who's going to be favored in the race. I'd be shocked if there wasn't pace in the race. That's the one thing I will say. And I kind of looks like if you're somebody who's, let's hypothetically say you're somebody who just says, listen, I like Kathleen O, no matter what they put against her. Kathleen is going to have pace. She's going to have pace to run at. Now, whether or not she's good enough to beat the pace that's in front of her and whether the track is playing fairly where the closers have a big chance and I say that because a lot of times on these big days, it seems like the tracks get a little faster and the closers have less and less chance. I'm not saying that that's going to happen at Churchill for oaks and Derby this year. But there are a lot there are a lot more factors involved when you're betting a closer than when you're betting a horse who's going to be on or near the lead. But pay scenario, why is at least right now if you're a Kathleen O fan, you're going to get what you want. Yeah, absolutely. And you know, I rattled off 5 of those Phillies, but you're right. I mean, it's even deeper than that with this a dare manner. I mean, she could be, you know, I'm going to give her a break after winning two races by 25 Lance. You know, I thought that race was going to be a good race for her to improve upon. And even nostalgic, I think she's got something going for off of that win in New York. That's a race that's also going to come down to points. It's going to be overflowed. Right now, number 14 on the points list has 50 and it feels to be limited to 14, but a bunch of those sources that are on the outside looking in would love to run in there. It appears. So just going to be a terrific betting race. I like Kathleen O and nest right now at this point. I agree with what you're saying that really adds some pace to it because that goes Lulu has led at every call in every race of her career so far. So you know she's going to be going forward at the start and that is really a real speed Philly coming out of the win and the fantasy at ocon and affiliate like nest I think her tactical speed. She's going to be potential to sit a good trip just off the speed and then you're going to have, I think both secret oath and Kathleen O rolling in the final for a long. It's just going to be a great it's going to be a good build up to that on Friday. Yeah, and I think a dare manner is going to be somewhere right up near the lead as well. I just can't imagine her not being paced pressing. She doesn't look like she's somebody that wants to pass a lot of runners. So I wouldn't expect her to be far from the lead, if not on the lead, as well. You know, when you bet a Philly like Kathleen O and it's kind of the same way when you're looking at zanden in the Derby. With all the handicapping and the pace scenarios and you know, if you got the riders you want and the post positions you want, then you get back and you ask the question, can Kathleen O pass echo Zulu hidden connection nest and secret oath because there's a very good chance all of those will be in front of Kathleen O at some point in the race. And maybe the answer is yes, she's just better than them. And she's going to win. And with zanden, you say, well, if he's somewhere like 15th down the backstretch, can he pass 14 horses and win the Derby? Or does he have to be laying, is he going to have to be in the top 8 or 7 or 8 running down the backstretch? Not shuffled back to last. Now, by the way, when he won the bluegrass, even though he was at the back of the pack, I think he was never more than about 5 lengths out of it. It's not like he was 14 lengths behind at some point. He was just last in and amongst runners. Yeah, and the Derby won't be like that. I mean, yeah, there's a reason why tactical speed, it's an advantage in a 20 horse field. That doesn't mean a late runner can't win. But it's hard to, you know, sometimes it's hard to navigate your way through there. And then sometimes your Calvin Burrell and just get this dream trip up the rail. But if you had a preferred run style, you would definitely take tactical speed in a large field than being a one run closer type. Phone lines are open, give us a call 888-966-4776 is the numbered just to close out what we were talking about a little bit earlier, James. You've been doing these brisk net speed in late pace reports for the Derby for several years and when are these available to the public now and if so or if so, when do they come out and how do people get them? I'm going to put the late speed will be out tomorrow and then the speed will be on the late pace will be Friday and the speed will be.

"The phone lines, Patrick is in Orlando, Patrick, go ahead, you're on with Larry coma. Hey, good morning, guys. Larry really appreciate you getting on TV. I've been following you since you've been on there. And a question I have for you is Phillies. For what changed horse racing for me was when Rachel Alexandra won the Preakness. I know mine that bird was a huge upset, but when Calvin Burrell decides to get off him to ride Rachel Alexandra, I hit the trifecta of that day. It paid well, I might add. But between Rachel Alexandra zenya songbird, who was your favorite, you know, superstar Philly that you really thought was just because I'm kind of torn between zenyatta and Rachel Alexander. I don't think they ever matched up. If I'm mistaken, I could be wrong, but I don't think they ever raced against each other, did they? They never raced against each other, and that was the big news. What would have happened when they did? And that matchup never occurred unfortunately. Now, songbird, you know, she had her big match up with beholder and the breeders kept his staff and beholder. I think it should be in that league as well with the ones that you mentioned. As far as as far as my thought, I was always a big Rachel Alexandra fan, you know, being an east coast guy, but I will say when I was at Santa Anita for doubt at Santa nita for zenyatta's breeders cup classic win, it was one of the most exciting things I've ever seen, the move that she made just going through the field from the back of the pack, which was her style. It was just mind-blowing when she passed all those horses and got the Gio ponti laden and won that race. So, you know, my heart raced for all those horses and you know, I hate to say one's better than the other. But so many great performances by all of them. All right, Patrick, appreciate the phone call that's Patrick and Orlando 888-966-4776. The number of the call and talk to Larry komus and as we mentioned SiriusXM was on a bit of a delay, I think raw caught up now. So you are hearing Larry Coleman. You are the host of the show. This is your segment. Still have a couple minutes left to call in. I'll give you the number one more time. 888-966-4776 that is 8 8 8 9 6 6 N, you are hosting the show. You get the chance to call in and talk with NBC announcer and TV G analyst. Larry Coleman and Larry, this has been so much fun. This is the fourth week now that we've done this segment. And it's become extremely popular. People are really enjoying getting an opportunity to talk to folks like yourself that they don't often have the opportunity to do so. And man, I think it's so important to let fans have access to the top names in our sport. I completely agree with you. I love when I was calling the races the Saratoga my day would always start by walking around the backyard and saying hi to people. And it was just a perfect way to start the day because people appreciated it. And I had fun meeting people, you know, from different walks of life who are all big racing fans. And here in cultural park, we're getting that too. Because I've been on TV G more people recognizing my face more than they used to, they wouldn't recognize me walking around before because you never saw me. You just heard me. But you know, so many people stop me now and say, you know, say, hey, and we chat about racing and I think it's a very cool thing. Ray called into the studio didn't want to come on air, but he did have a question for you. So let me pass it along. He wants to know your thoughts on the passing of longtime Arlington park owner Richard duchess well. Well, here was a guy that saved Chicago racing. I mean, I never met the man because I've never spent too much time in Chicago, but I mean, what he did after Arlington park burned down and what he built was just an absolute spectacular facility. And he took care of Chicago racing and was just a great man for the sport. And nothing but great things to say about the man they called mister D yeah, once again, our condolences going out to the entire duchess S.W.A.T. family, everybody who knew mister D and it's certainly a sad day for third bed racing, but good gracious. 100 years old, we should all be so lucky, Larry Coleman. Yeah, I got no shot. No way. Yeah, probably not. 888-966-4776. Number the call and ask your question of Larry Coleman. This is you be the host your chance to be the host of the program. You mentioned cigar and that race at Suffolk downs. Was that the same year that Lu panella was in town when he was managing? Yeah, that's a great story. Lou penelo was managing the Seattle Mariners and they were playing the Red Sox at Fenway Park. I found out about this at a Boston baseball writers dinner. So apparently Luke canela as they were going to have an afternoon game as they were doing the lineup cards at the beginning of the game. He says to the umpires, you know, first inning second inning maybe I'm going to argue a balls and strikes call just throw me out of the game. And they're like, oh, what the heck are you talking about? Just do me a favor. Just throw me out of the game. They're like, well, you got to tell us why. So he says, well, you know, there's this horse running at Suffolk down cigar in the Massachusetts handicap. I've always wanted to see him run. I'm in the same town as him and I'm not going to miss it. So sure enough in the first inning, he starts barking at the umpires. They throw him out of the game. They've got a car waiting for him. Take off his uniform changes and heads right to Suffolk downs and spends the afternoon incognito in the grandstand watching the mask happens. Fantastic. You know, there's so many stories like that that we've heard professional athletes and celebrities that are in love with racing and they find a way to be at these big races and these signature moments and that is that's a classic. Todd is in Minnesota, Todd, you are on the line with Larry Coleman. Go ahead. Hey Larry, welcome to the show. Sponsored by Mike Penn and the black and gold. Well done, Todd. I want to say we had big money, Mike on it, beginning the series, and I want to call you big money, Larry for calling all the big shows. Well, I'll take it. Especially if I make big money today, let's hope for the best of winners. I would like to know minus the Triple Crown races. What's been your most memorable race call? Minus the Triple Crown races, most memorable race call. I would say, you know, revert them to breeders cup and calling American pharaoh going out in style in the breeders cup.

"Good. Who knows if you'd put if you put the if you'd put the joe joe couldn't necessarily catch like right like his brother. Come up with with allison around the big around How many We'll see if we can't find somebody else that had all right. That's all right though show. I'm gonna use different ones so you gotta pay attention right all right all right. Well i start at four thirty. This afternoon i will come up with a new five. Maybe a hockey. You're a hockey guy. you know only one way it's it or do spo either because there were there were there were there you know. Yeah yeah yeah. I like boxing analogies. I'm going to start looking at fighters you know. See how many brothers and sisters joe louis had or something. Let's dive in and get a couple of thoughts rich about the the week ahead. And for starters You know one. Thing that that i brought up with dave grant earlier the the interesting scenario surrounding rothbauer who wins the preakness and promptly In a loses loses his writer. And not that. You know putting john velazquez on a belmont Prospect is a bad Proposition and You know johnny knows. His way around this oval. Probably better than anybody. That's going to enter the starting gate on saturday Kind of an interesting scenario. But i think about some things that happened over the years including including people of You know wondering about st. Louis elliott on this track and familiarity Calvin burrell took his share of Criticism for not taking amount Ahead of ahead of writing Not that mine. That bird run well in the belmont that year but You know this is an unusual. It is an unusual scenario a circuit around this racetrack. And you know the the slow slow gradual turns that don't even look like turns Talk a little bit about writing this particular race. Well i think that's where guys that don't have a familiarity with park. Make a mistake because turns are so y- gentle and sweeping They maybe don't put as much a premium on saving ground And you're just gonna turn a lot longer than you are another other tracks so saving ground becomes even more important You're you're losing steadily losing more ground over a longer period of time because the turns are as long as they are even though you think well you know it doesn't feel like you're losing ground and then you you know you travel the hundred feet more than the winner you know. So i think i gotta be acutely aware of that and buildings belmont had a you know for years a reputation you know. The balcony moves the insight debt. That hasn't been that way in a very long time. He'll you know. Glenn kozak in his crew that this track is so much more fair than you know years ago you would purposely put a horse out in the six path. You know not that way anymore. I think guy a little bit lost in the midst of that So you gotta just pay attention if you're not rioting lot of watch every race intently and see how winning and then the other thing is you know as a writer can get conditioned as you get into turn the far turn it mostly tracks unconsciously. Almost you start opening your hands a little bit leaning forward a little bit. Drop in your seat a little bit. These are accused for horse to start marching on well at most tracks. That's three and a half furlongs three. You know you can get into the creates poll alabama. You start heading into the turn you got about five furlongs to go still and once you allow a worse to start going forward very few horses you can take that away from them and then start them again. I'm very few horses so once you've already started that process. You're kind of committed to it. And i think that's the only thing guys move too soon. It's that at another track. That would have been a fine move at belmont park new known. You gotta wait until you well into the past the middle turned.

"When I hope they'll feel the horse so well, I think I'm gonna get it in the quarter pole. The other horse, keep going run itself. I was surprised today I talked to them. We gonna put him all real close to believe without taking any hole of them and see what happens. And I think he hears the horse to beat the you know, So it worked out well done, and Johnny did admit to crying like a baby. When you got back to the jocks from after last year's Derby, let's go to Kenny Rices with Bob Baffert and probably ready to cry like a baby himself. You just heard that, But you heard Donna say to Johnny four Kentucky Derby wins We talk about Baffert would seven. But here's Johnny V, who now joins Bill Shoemaker, second all time among jockeys. On that list, and it is a special list. Eddie Arcaro, with five, Bill Hartack would five and now Bill Shoemaker and John Velazquez each with four and Velasquez becomes the first jockey since Calvin Burrell in 2009 to win both the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby. In the same year, folks, a few astute observers had pointed out That it should have been a clue when John Velazquez, who does most of his writing on the East Coast when he went west to California to ride Medina Spirit on March, 6th, and despite an eight length loss, he went back again to ride the horse in the Santa Anita Derby. When John Velazquez is willing to get on a plane to go cross country back to back times to ride a horse and then keeps that mountain the Kentucky Derby. Obviously, John Velazquez had a lot of confidence in Medina spirit, and it's been justified when we come back. We'll take you back trackside for the trophy presentation to the winning connections from NBC Sports and Horse Racing Radio Network. This is the 147th Kentucky Derby. You know, sports for my friends would bet MGM There's nothing like a soccer ball, finding the back of the net and bet MGM wants you to win. $100 when the goal is scored, you heard right Sign up for the bed..

"W. TV END talking about the Kentucky Derby? No, we're talking about yard again. We are talking about the Kentucky Derby. Welcome back. Here in the garden with Ron Wilson Talk about buggy Joe Boggs and we are talking about the Derby in the run for the Derby and our picks. Are you going to stick with known agendas? You're number two pick. I guess I'm probably gonna need to because again now that's solely on the name. I know nothing about that horse got the You know it is. It is fascinating that when you do read the backgrounds of these horses, it's just it is. It is fascinating, and also that They're so fast. They appear to be able to just just stay way ahead of any ticks. That might be out there. Well, I wasn't done with the Derby yet. Oh, Oh, I'm sorry. Okay. Alright. I was trying to say what they were making it official. Our joint pick is Medina or my Dinah spirit. Yeah, with Johnny. They lost case. That's gonna be our pick. And I said, um and Bob, obviously And then my my second pick is hot Rod Charlie. So we'll see that will separate the two of us who's gonna do better known agenda or hot Rod, Charlie. Calvin Burrell. You know, I always wanted to hang out with Calvin Burrell. Calvin Burrell. Bow rail riding the rails. You know, Kevin, you know our common retired. And then he came back he raised in 2020. That's true. Yeah, he came back and race last year. You retire, said he wouldn't go sit around. Oh, you know how much he's the Calvin has earned over the years his career earnings. $132 million. Oh, my goodness. Goodness. Well, you know, you know it's It's a dangerous sport, though. I mean well, he retired because, he said he broke everything in his body over the years racing, so it's time for him to stop. He said it out for a couple years couldn't stand. It got back into it again. You know, it is amazing. You know, we think of that. I know that I'm still sticking with NASCAR. I know you sort of faded gonna field away from NASCAR. I still like it and we think of that racing. And we think of Indy cars. You know, we think of all but you know it was always safety equipment and and designs they put into the racing. It's It is a much safer sport. I think we all agree to that. Even though you would think. Oh, my goodness, and even as cursed football, you know, with the NFL draft and all. Very I hate to say very quietly because of course, there will be a lot of horse racing fans out there. You know, that would say no. Wait a minute, Joe. You know this, But when you when you do when you do look into these jockeys, you're right. It turns out, you know, A lot of the accidents are in training. A lot of the accidents occur. You know, off the track where they're, you know. Um I don't recall the name but you know there was a jockey about 20 years ago. I never forget this. That No. The horses step on his foot. Of course, I know. I'm sorry for laughing. That sounded awful Laugh. I didn't mean to, But, you know, you think of all the things that was kind of a snidely little laugh. That was not very nice. I am I'm stepped on millions of times with the horses, and that's not fun. I'll tell you if you've ever had that happen. I mean, you know, it's a What I'm saying. It's not fun. Go ahead. I'm not fun at all. And but you know you would. I mean of all the things of all the ways to get injured, But it was, You know, it was one of those injuries that that was You know, sort of a nagging and just injury. The pretty well, you know, ended his career. And you wouldn't think getting just you know, so you know you're around these big animals just I mean, the horse. I'm sure didn't mean to do it. You know, I don't know that you don't know. I'm pretty smart animals. You're right about they are But you know the dangers behind it, But I have to do this, though. I have to get to picks because very Joe I was gonna interrupt you say, Joe, would you stop because you have four minutes to talk about ticks, ticks? Well, it's going to start with an email from Glen Needham Glens are retired. In tomorrow. Well, not really retired. You know, the entomologist never retire. They just pew paid this kind of bug out. Yeah, well, they they do. Come back, You know so glad Lenny Mel. Last week and said, You know you, you might want to consider bringing up ticks, and he's absolutely correct because this literally they literally sneak up on us this time of year because Gone for the winter, and we've been out there. I've been out walking through the brush all winter long right? And we don't think about ticks in the winter, although sometimes we should when they warm up a little bit, but This is the time of year when we really do need to start thinking about picks, and the reason is all obviously that we've now had to nude, you know, Tix coming into our Our realm of concern. The Gulf Coast IQ which really looks, I'll tell you the Gulf Coast tick looks to me like a dog tick. If I if I would see it on me, I would think of the dog tick. And of course, last year, you know, had the rise of the Asian Longhorn tick, which You know, these are of course, you know, we've always been concerned by the black leg ticker, the so called deer ticks. We have a lot of horsepower at Ohio State. I'm gonna brag a little bit. I mean, first of all, I don't know if you've ever had. I think you have had, uh, veterinarian and extension educator at Franklin County. Tim McDermott. I think you've had him on the show. Yeah. Might want to consider that because Tim's of again a veterinarian, but also has developed quite an expertise on ticks. One Still very active and, of course, in in our school of environmental and that of environment. Natural resource is, uh, Resa pesa pain and I probably mispronounced your name there, but she is Now heading up, you know, a tick research project and also in October, there'll be a symposium there in Columbus for each building on ticks. I'll just be very aware, you know, you know, I talk about this. I have my pick pants and take socks where I treat it with, you know, with a new insecticide developed for, you know, repelling ticks. Easily available. The one thing, though, that I want to stress is that if you're going to be in to take territory don't entirely depend on some of these more common things like deep deep is Reasonably decent. But but still has some gaps in a zoo. You know, I actually can't use deep. They've Scheller to retired from Entomology. We both have a bit of a sensitivity to beat, so a lot of folks can't use it. Just be very aware don't go into areas where you might risk contact, which, of course. That's mostly areas you and I frequent, right, um, without having you know the knowledge and protection because the diseases that are vectored by whether they Human pathogens, vectored by the ticks. And, you know, present some very serious diseases. So I want to bring that up on the stress it like that. I got the email from Glenn and very appropriately good timing because They're gonna be with us for a while and they're gonna be with us informs that Frankly, I'm not very aware of not very familiar with American dog Take. That was Arctic, right? You know, we just grew up with him. But we have these others that we need to be aware of. So now I'm scared everybody to stay in today to watch the Derby, right? Yeah. Which is tonight? Why they keep making it later And later all the time. I don't get it. Yeah. Second party and drink more mint juleps all day. I guess I don't know. By then you don't even remember what I said. I think I went to the Derby one time, but I'm not sure. Oh, a bit somewhere in lover. I was somewhere in global, but I I'm not sure where I was. So anyway, H Joe, always a pleasure again, if you're if you're betting, abetting person, and you want it for right from the horse's mouth..

"Then let's use this with james to to the derby conversation because there's really been two schools of thought The people who hear the one hole and and even with the new gate and with the extra room and so forth that are still just convinced that it it still not a great place to be period. Then there's a few that have actually said you know what it's not gonna hurt at all. Because i read can use them just enough to gain some early position and then he's you know he's going to get that corey lanteri calvin burrell inside out ground saving trip so I think the people that are. There's people that have gravitated to known agenda because they think that people are going to avoid because of the one and then you're gonna get a better value on them. Then you might have had. Had you drawn a normal acceptable more acceptable post. I think he's got a chance to get mid pack and settled right. They're not get shuffled back. I mean that's your big concern. Just gets shuffled back when the field turns left after the opening quarter mile. What thing about being in the rail and in this field is the five horses or horses says media outside. They're like all plotters. You got like mandalay loon and post seven and then post a spirit but you know. He's got he's got like some room to it he's he's he's quicker than those horses and imposts four to thirty six and might be able to establish the positioning. And and you're right. I mean if you watch the head on a break of last year it was fifteen horses but you can just see how that gate is. Further off the rail. The one i is than it was before. Plus they're the gate itself the the the stalls art more narrow than on older conventional gates so even that is some some room saving when it comes to because the as it is the thing is now you now. They're saying hey the horses on the inside can break out to the left and so be just had plenty of room dot es on in in you know into past the gap well on a on a horse behavioral note Which you've heard before horses run to open space so when that gate opens and there's a horse to their when their horses to their right they're gonna go for that opening and then when they passed the know they come out of the chute. There's the big gap where the shut meets. The main track and horses tendency is to go for that open area. Then all of a sudden. There's this offense in my way so that that's the same thing is true with the horse in the twenty hold. Have the horses going to usually take a step and this isn't limited to the you know the one through twenty gate. This is true in in one through fourteen scenarios. Horse the horse on the outside. They'll take a step to the right and you'll see this when you see a head on watch ahead on and you'll see the horses. They they'll go for the open space that's their. That's their tendency all right The i've given you the rail. James scully and your final derby analysis. How do people approach this. I'm playing. I like hot rod charlie. He's my top pick. I really liked his effort at louisiana derby. I thought it was a big. Yeah i just thought. I thought he was more professional stronger. You know a improved horse. And i think doug o'neill has him. You know sitting pretty coming into the race backpacks for a long work. So i watched both of those on aunt on online like both. I just think he's sitting on a good race. I don't think the distance be any issue for him. He's going to get a good trip. I hope just off the early leaders. A second pick is number ten midnight bourbon. I'll just echo. What a lot of people said. He appears to be peak and right now sitting on a career best i think a steve s medicine when he won the cop. He could work backwards with them. You know and as soon as at louisiana derby was over he was like you know all right. Let's you know. Bear down on him and he's taken it. I mean he's trained brilliantly. I think back to back five for one. Bullet works and even his last work which is typically. A maintenance was very sharp and seems to be sitting on a good race. You know. Mike smith takes up the mound. I think he needs to be ford. Probably won't be setting the pace but he needs to be up close and i think he's a terrific job to get for that. I referenced before two thousand thirteen. I was against voting my stir because china burg was in there and there was no way voting. Meister was getting clear. I mean should well end up winning the sprint. That year he was a champion sprinter at all this speed and after we go by the while the first time voting my two and a half lengths clear under mike smith so that guy can hustle speed with anybody. I think. I expect him to send in midnight berber from the gate well and that could put him frankly In a at least in you know a front You know a position that he can take advantage of. And he's right at the top of my tickets as well. I'll make the final. The final pecking order and approach after the show today. But my my three. That i used as as the as in in the oaks derby and the oaks turf classic derby pick three rock your world midnight bourbon and essential quality. Those are the my three prime. It's pretty much how i approach every year. Three i got besley cards and those three. Those three horses are going to be key to my ticket. Structure for super factors such On that topic in terms of the bottom rungs james. Who you know who scares you.

It's on my bucket list. I hope to make it there someday. But when they're both race, and at the same time I'm going to white Saratoga, so ah, they have that on a different candle. It's on Fox Sports These days they came up with an agreement with New York racing. So they broadcast all of race and starts on just regular TV.

I'll take your word for it. Saratoga Racing has been good. I just haven't been a blue hit the right spot at the right time. But I still got three more weeks to go in the meat for more weeks ago.

An Interview with Jockey Daniel Centeno
"He's won nearly twenty nine hundred races here in the United States and nearly nine hundred more in his native Venezuela. Many of those wins have come Tampa Bay downs. Where Jockey Daniel? Centennial was in search of his seventh riding title even earned his first ride in a triple crown race. The preakness where we finished eleventh on it always mining all jockeys have obstacles to overcome. That's obviously the nature of the business. But one year ago Daniel Centennial had an even tougher burden to bear in January of two thousand. Nineteen centennial's longtime partner Ashley. George died after a nearly lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis roses. She left behind their daughter. Jasmine who's now in seventh grade. It's tough enough being a single dad and oh by the way Santana also has a twenty year old son son in college but it's pretty tough to work from home when you do what he does. So let's find out how he makes it all work as we welcome for the first time here to win the gate jockey. Daniel Centeno already. A handful of wins for you at the Tampa Bay. Meet a place where you've had quite a bit of success over the years more so than in Maryland where you ridden over the summer. What's been the key to your success in Tampa I dunno being here for light Fifteen sixteen years now for my first time and I I talk like it. I love the weather. I'm never been relieved. Grind with the cold weather. I never try to stay up on the winning thing and I did year by year. You know writing better courses that train and I got to my support here at the beginning from gaming as Kathy O'CONNELL and ride them for their like. WHO So? Maybe you know. Open a lot of a lot more awesome around the track and you know all my area that had been working for Greg to you split you. Year between Laurel Park in Maryland and Tampa. But now I know we're not going to see you what aqueduct in the winter based on what you just said but what made you choose those tracks supposed to say New York or California well because People that are right in for here in Tampa wants to go to Laurel Delaware and the year see bars. So that's like my shadow. God Nora Bill and it's pretty time so I'm really basically driving them. Everywhere are but We're doing good and a lot of oxygen around jockeys are said to have particular writing styles go for example Paco. Lopez takes horses away from the gate aggressively. Everybody knows that likes to go to the early lead. Pat Day was known as wait all day coming from behind. Nine Calvin Burrell is Calvin Bo Rail. You know where he's taking is horses. What do you consider to be your style? Well I I would say eighty two. I like to be more delay but You know it depends on what kind of house I've gone awry but I would like to be close to my thousand dollars outbreak throats to the Leo to pay Being the lead. But it's a defendant to pry. Sometimes you gotTa Jenny a little bit your style to fit all on the horses you know and then workout good too but I'm I feel more comfortable. Really close to the lay or something. That'd be proponent department of your nearly two thousand nine hundred career wins. You've won five grade three races in your career and a single grade to aboard ring weekend in the two thousand fourteen Tampa Bay Derby. You weren't a ride in the preakness as well in two thousand nineteen. What do those kinds of races mean to you? They they mean a lot for me. You know because I can help your mom. I Don t still down so I'd be doing building my curry of keying in this country like little by little step-by-step working hard right in the for different track The Great State for me the main a lot for me you know like I were so hot.

You know the the big horse and it would broaden your really good him. Kelly Rowland the ordinary. They give me the opportunity right. Trading is what so I drink too for me. Was it hard not to look around and just take in the atmosphere and instead focus on what you were doing. How hard list to do? Yeah well I come from Venezuela complete different compare here and then you really have to focus at work workout every day so you can get your business and you know doing your job and you know made me thanks you know and then try to cloud what every day. How hard was it making the adjustment from Venezuela coming here as a young man not sure of the language and not knowing what's at your prospects would be? What was that adjustment like well? There's a big chance you know especially with the with the language that you have to really talk to do every body and understand what they wanna tell you frighteners on there. When I was in Minnesota last dot doing English class and private I went to high school and in a private school so when I came back here I can't hear one time? Nineteen Ninety six.

Mark. Cassie are in the winter circle. Now they're going to await the trophy presentation. That's something that Mark will gladly accept and for more and some other thoughts, let's go trackside. Check. Jeff. Yeah. You can imagine. It's pretty happy mood here in the winter circle area. And what a performance jockey, Jila resort put on in the Belmont Stakes today, one of the striking strongest writers in the game so much so that he even himself lifted off the blanket of carnations which has to weigh about fifty pounds lifted up with one hand said it to the handler, and before he jumped off the horse. He reached down put his arms around both sides of the neck of his winning Belmont Stakes. Right, Sir Winston gave him a big hug, a big kiss jumped off the horse and accepted a lot of congratulatory messages from all those standing in the winter circle over to you, Tom. Jeff, it takes a lot of patients in this game in a lot of ways. I the trainer Mark Cassie. I talked to him before, sir. Winston ran off the board race in the blue grass stakes at Keeneland and he told me prior to that race, that this was a horse that should be a great fit for the Belmont Stakes. So when the bluegrass didn't go well for, Sir Winston Cassie shift the horse up to New York gave him a race over the track in the Peter Pan stakes. He came from dead last well out of it was flying down the stretch and finished second. And what was his lifetime best race? And he is trained. Well off of that, and it led to this performance today now for the jockey, and the horse, Joel Rosario, and Sir Winston, first of all in the last two days here if you were on the lead, you had a great chance to win. And the next best way to win was to just be on the inside. And so Joel Rosario, kept, Sir Winston down along the rail the entire way and the path opened up and a lot of ways the way. It used to for Calvin Burrell in some of those legendary Kentucky Derby rides, so Sir Winston came up the inside the shortest way home.

He shipped good the pictures of him on Instagram been excellent. He looks like he's settling in nicely there. He adds a lot of speed of the field. I'm wondering a lot of people don't think he can go very far. They don't think he can go to turn this race is only one turn. But they're questioning is ability of mile and all that.

And and I I remember that morning really vividly and John was his his natural journalistic. Reaches. You know, he he knew he knew where stories lied, and and where to go and with the queues as and and it it it made for terrific dialogue. I would agree with that. He knew his stuff and he knew those trainers. And that's the other thing that was remarkable about him and many people like yourself as that you go in and you talk to the trainers. Just you meet them and get to know them and you'll comfortable with you. Because if you know your stuff, and you don't waste their time. They're going to they're going to give you a little bit more of themselves. I really respect the call NASCAR a great the only back through a through bridled. So I think that that was the natural for him and play about Calvin Burrell. I mean from that point forward to blink of an eye and he's in the hall of fame. Exactly, exactly. Started there. Now, it it's going to be Jim you can appreciate this. And you certainly have no that have gone through any number of moments, or, you know, individuals that are hard part of our of our landscape. This will be this will be so just unusual because you'll be waiting. Everybody will will be waiting for John come around the corner were to hear the voice before he comes around the corner. You will you will just be that that that missing presence. I think that like make another analogy thought about this last night to the people who work in the news business. It was like the shock when Tim russert suddenly died, and he was part of meet the press in that world. And he he galvanized that role on Sunday mornings in John was the galvanizing figure of Churchill and of the Kentucky Derby, and it's such a tremendous void to fill. It may never it. Probably never will be filled. And I just think that this is we these hard times were you just what you try to remember the good times. And what what what he contributed in a short time with. So I'm just I've been babbling the last two days twenty four hours about you know, about this and. It's just it was really hard to sleep last night. It just didn't it was just such a shock and an great loss. And I'm it's wonderful. Having your show today to remember him and the great things for those people didn't know didn't get to know, John very, well, he was he was like your best friend that you didn't see for a long time. But you bet like picked it right up who wonderful person. Exactly exactly Jimmy Guoxin. Thank you so much. Thank you. Jim Luxton everybody. Let's take a break. Our last of the morning and bolt together a. Way to say goodbye on this on this Tuesday. It's dark Tuesday at Saratoga the last dark Tuesday. It's a it's a dark Tuesday Churchill Downs and. In louisville. John Asher back to say goodbye after this..

"With with the I mean, the crazy doubles that he's made these are not vets that you'd ever make in life. You wouldn't make seven thousand dollar chalk chalk double in life. But in the contest, it makes sense. So actually as much as I like to needle j actually really I actually really mean that he's he bought and by making plays that no one else is willing to make. He's actually getting great value. It's sort of it's almost that same idea that we see in mythical of the points that other people don't have are worth more in a in a way. It's really the same thing in live bankroll note, though, it's a it's a good analogy, you know, and the point you make with Jonathan too is. And he would be the first minute these these are these are good contests plays, but they're not. And that's one thing. I was worried about with when they're posting all the plays for the Breeders Cup. Was that sense? Well, that's some somebody that is trying to learn the bet I was going to look at all the the place of the of the players and say, oh, I should play like this. And it's really. A recipe for losing over over the long term you should play like that. If you're looking to bet well in a contest. But right, there is a difference. There's a very big difference in it. And I have you You know, know. put it personal. I've done this much of times and these money contests where I gotta get out of the mode of and another problem. I have is in the Mon contest. I'm actually betting at the same time. So two separate where I gotta make a good bed here. And then I'm gonna make a bad bet. There is is a tough spot that get your mind into along with all the handicap. And and then we're everybody's at you know, it's a there's a lot there. But you know, I'm gonna keep doing them. I gotta get better at that the mental jujitsu. Yeah. Do you play cash while you're playing in the NHCD? Oh, yeah. This year. I played probably the least I've played I was really focused in on the on the NFC, but I still was betting here and there, and I I screwed up a couple of yesterday because of the contest because I really wanted to concentrate on making it so we've been talking a lot about the horse player World Series.

The track has never been fast than the three days at Oaklawn, the wet weather on Saturday loaded for bear early in the car. I was scratched in the first race was scratched in the second race by third horse would off too short. All of a sudden, I'm really searching for plays. So it's been it's been a tough year for me. But you did you did like that. You did like that Calvin Burrell lors thousands. Yes. I did you pick that one right out. I had I did not. I did he didn't like it. But but but but I did not take that as desparation I picked doors on the plane on the way out. It was not even though I needed a desperation play. We're going to go into garbage sheets We're not buying buying that. that one. Wow. What a finish worse on the ramp. Three was seventy two one in that. I think he got second three rice..
