"And he keeps on bringing that up to me a lot. And so I'm starting to really implement that into a lot of the work that I do and sharing and trying to share that space as much as I can to spread is that it's not about me. As a creative, we can easily take that ownership. But as a wise creative or someone who's lived in a life as when I'm looking at deadly is that ain't nothing being taken away. What you're doing is you're creating a force to be dealt with. You're creating a stronger presentation that not just we've been here, but we are thriving. And it's great to be able to share that space with fellow creatives, especially upcoming folks, to step into that space, especially in the outdoor world. It wasn't just one lesson to give you. There's many lessons here, but that's some of the mentoring that I've had from Dudley. And I've been in the world for a bit. He's been in the world longer than me. He's doing great. And he spreads that word. And I think in that conversation, we do have as Black folks, and I definitely had experience, I'm not sure about you, but it's that crab barrel theory. And that crab barrel theory is that when you look in a barrel of crabs and you've got that one crab that's trying to climb up and get out, what happens is another crab comes up and basically pulls you back down. And we do that to ourselves a lot, especially amongst our own communities. We do that a lot where jealousy sets in to whatever arrogance and whatever, all this kind of stuff in which it actually ties into mental health. And that's another conversation. But when we can able to operate and align ourselves in the right space, in the right light, with our creative intentions and how we move our creative intentions and creating other spaces for others, et cetera, it does acquire us to be unselfish in that space and to allow people to step in and to make things much stronger and better. And we have to be able to be able to celebrate that at the best, highest way and for others. The more we can learn about how we celebrate one another, the end product becomes much more stronger, not just as a community, but also as a professional community and a stronger presentation of allegiance that we are creating for others to be able to follow and be inspired by. But that takes a lot of work. And it starts off, it takes myself and others who really understand that it's not about bringing that brother and bringing that sister down. It's about upholding that brother and that sister and letting them rise up even higher than you. You can still share that space but rise higher than you because at the end of the day, you'll look at it as a force to be dealt with. And that's the presence that we want to be able to portray and put out in front of the world of who we are and how we move through this world. What does the future look like for you? Like, when we last spoke, you spoke love as king pretty much into existence. Like, what do you want the next chapter of your story to be? I think the next chapter of my story, I'm going to find myself taking deeper dives into storytelling in the outdoors through film. There's a lot of stories that needs to be told that's not told. And there's so many inspiring and moving stories of BIPOC that has yet to be looked underneath the hood and seen what's happening with the stories there. You look at indigenous nations, and I find myself spending more time with indigenous nations, and especially around the murders and the rapes of Native American women in all those cases that goes cold all the time. And so I would love to find myself taking deeper dives into documentary work around that and exposing and bringing that further into not just a section of the conservation but bringing that into a mainstream, again, getting people to rally around those kind of topics. And the more we can rally around, the more we can have conversations. The stronger the army that we have to come together as a people to be able to fight that higher power and bring justice to where justice needs to be served. But I definitely see myself in that next chapter of moving through the conservation space, using creativity as a way of not just developing stories but finding justice and bringing that to a head as it should be, basically. So I think that's where my next step is, is we'll be taking a deeper dive into filmmaking and going in that direction of bringing BIPOC stories to a stronger stage where people could be able to learn and be engaged and be inspired, and then also finding justice where justice needs to be served on the ones that needs justice in their lives. And that helps folks find healing, period, yeah. Well, just to kind of wrap things up here, where can our audience find out more information about you, about the film, about your nonprofit works? Like where can they find that online? You can find my personal work of photography and film work. I have my personal site, which is chattelcreative.com. And my organization, soulriverinc.org, loveisking.org. And then the film could be found at blackwatersfilm.com. And you'll find a lot of the updates of where the film's gonna be seen. And then we'll have also a release date when that will be available also online as well. But you'll be able to find all that information on the Black Waters film site. All right, sounds good. Chad Brown, thank you so much for coming on the show. When I had you on the first time, I was talking about just how inspiring your story was. And now that you've been able to come back and talk about the work that you're doing, I think it's such a needed thing in this kind of current time, especially as we sort of emerge from this pandemic. Like one thing about that period of time is that there was this sort of, or at least I felt like there was this call back to nature of some sorts. It felt like it was a big reset in some ways. Cities slowed down, people slowed down, et cetera. And I think that the work that you're doing here around having people get in touch with nature, as well as tying that into sort of civic engagement, you know, this is a design podcast. So somebody that like uses Figma might listen to this episode and think, well, what does this have to do with me? I think what you're doing illustrates is that designers as problem solvers can do more than just like electronic visual design problems. There's bigger problems that you can take your skills and apply to really sort of change communities and change the world. So, you know, thank you so much for coming on the show, man. I appreciate it. I really appreciate the opportunity again. And thank you. It was definitely a good experience of connecting again. And thank you very much for this opportunity. Really appreciate it.

"Absolutely. Absolutely. Wow. That's interesting. Yeah. Yeah, that's pretty cool. I didn't know it was going to be Love is King, though. But now it is Love is King. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. It's interesting as an entrepreneur, sometimes you don't know. But you can sit back and try to, I guess, allow that creativity and how that speaks to you and be able to follow through with whatever speaks to you soulfully. And there's a lot of power and energy with that, right? And it manifests itself into something. Only if you can allow it, though. We can very well block it by many different things that come into our lives. Even not just having things come into our lives, even mentally, we can mentally block it and just turn away from it. But I really believe if you can sit with something and let it manifest itself in the right way, it's going to turn into a reality. It's kind of like in design, you know, you work on concepts, you're sketching the concepts, and you have your proof of concept. And then you go into your execution. It's similar. It's the only difference is that you're working with manifestation and how that manifests into something that's speaking. And you may not have an understanding of where it's going to go and how it's going to evolve. But allowing it to work through you will have its own way of creating a proof of concept into an execution. And doing what you need to do. But yeah. Over these past, you know, six years, since you've been here on the show, how would you say you've evolved as like a creative and as a person? I think I have evolved very, by myself, evolving, evolving into a more of a creative strategist type of space mindset. And with the skill sets is something that evolves over as you're growing and moving through. But it's the strategy that's very important to me. And I think there's a place when you just first start out and you're really hungry and you want to create and you want to do this. And you're just really giddy about it. And that comes with the program. That comes with the whole process. But the older you get, the wiser you become. And so you start to learn how to tame that giddiness and learning how to sit with that. Going back to what I was talking about, that manifestation and how it comes out. But now my manifestation is really taking deep thoughts and being more and more strategic in how I use my creative talent into what I am embarking on. Instead of me running fast, now I'm running a little bit slower and really taking much more a deep, probably a holistic type of approach and thinking a little bit much more deeper how this is going to not just work for me, but also to work for others. My roots are definitely into that natural green space of healing and connecting to nature. And so I think it all aligns. But my involvement today of who I am today is more of a deeper strategist around the creative process and more intentional in what I'm wanting to embark on and do. And yesterday, six years ago, it was a little bit different of me kind of running and gunning. But now it's more of me not running and gunning. It's me more sitting with it and being more strategic and thoughtful, holistic, and shooting for something that's going to be impactful in what I'm doing, that's going to affect people positive and help people. Now, I'm sure that throughout the work that you've done and the people that you've talked to and the places you've visited, you probably have picked up a lot of just advice, life advice, et cetera. What are a couple of pieces of advice that you find yourself kind of continually coming back to? The biggest advice that comes to me a lot, and I had this conversation just recently with a colleague of mine who was one of the, actually, one of the camera operators with Black Waters and also the senior editor of Black Waters was Dudley Edmondson. And he's a phenomenal creative himself, a phenomenal photographer. If anyone has not even done research on Dudley, he's actually one of the sought after African-American wildlife photographers in history. He'd go into encyclopedia books and different educational books by the government, et cetera. That's pre-upon a Dudley Edmondson photograph of a wildlife bird or animal, basically. But he's a phenomenon. He's been in the business as a wildlife photographer for many, many years. Now he's a filmmaker as well. And we had these conversations about, well, he's having conversations with me, Senator Brown, team and the power of team. And I know this very well with my background in the military. You can't do anything just by yourself. It takes a team to be part of that same process to make things work. You can do it by yourself in thinking that you're doing it and thinking you are the unicorn. But the reality is that you're really just kind of tapping that surface. But if you open that up to others and create that kind of team, the work that you're doing is actually much more stronger now than you. But it still includes you. And it puts you on a different level. But the work is much more powerful. And so he constantly had these conversations with me a lot. And really, it's these conversations around the spaces that we're in as Black creatives. And rather, if you're in the corporate world or the outer world, if you are in a space that you are moving and you're making change and you are a decision maker as a creative, a Black creative, there is a responsibility if should you choose to take on is by choice. But there's also a responsibility if you choose to take on that by opening up those opportunities of other Black creatives that could be part of the process of what you're trying to accomplish that can make you much more stronger and impactful instead of just being the unicorn. And that's something that's very more, that's coming from a trained mindset as Deli would speak to me. He has a lot of wisdom. And he's much older than me. I really listen to a lot what Deli is saying to me, especially being Black in outdoor spaces and being creative, which is very, very little of us. But as he said, you could be that unicorn, but it's so, so important to allow and open that space up for a team and showing those people just as much as showing yourself because that's a stronger presentation in many different other eyes beyond the diversity lens. And people need to see and understand and know that it's not just you. It's you and many other people that are there that are doing the great work. They are creative and they're thriving. And that's the presentation that you want people to see. Having the presentation of one unicorn is a pat on the back. It's fine. But having a stronger presentation of a team of fellow creatives that are owning different spaces, that's a powerful movement. That's a powerful presence that people need to see that's beyond that diversity lens. He's constantly drilling that in me. And he says, Chad, you're in a position and a great position to where, yes, you got this. Yes, you could do this. Yes, you are the unicorn. But you're also in that position to show the bigger presentation, the bigger presentation of a force, a force to be dealt with when you are in that force of others that are creative and that are also owning different spaces. That makes you much more of a powerhouse. Believe it or not, that does make you a powerhouse. And that makes that team a force to be dealt with.

"Brian Absolutely. I don't know what the outcome would have been if we would have shot this in North Carolina. We could have shot it in North Carolina. We could shot it in any other place. And I think what gravitated me more to the Arctic is just that it's such a ground zero and it's a sensitive space to where it's kind of like the canary in a coal mine. What takes place up there is a domino effect that's going to be happening down in the lower 48 and understanding under the circumstances of the Willow project that's happening and fighting against the land and knowing that, you know, knowing how the oil industry is treating the indigenous populations there, et cetera. And it's such a tangled, complex argument slash fight up there tied in with the Willow project. But it was also another opportunity of the why that we wanted to do it up in the Arctic. Well, I wanted to do it really up in the Arctic Circle to help raise it awareness throughout film, which that's what you have gathered already. But going to North Carolina and any other place, I don't know. And the safety, yeah, that's a question mark because I've been in North Carolina a couple of times and I've got some family there. But there's also, there's a lot of racism down in North Carolina. And it's almost anywhere you go regardless, but there's some resistance type of things that happens down there. And I don't know if we would have faced that or not. I had no idea, but that's definitely a realm in that state. It's, will we have faced that? I don't know. But the fear of, it's not animals. The fear is people and it's the ignorance that lies in the people. And that's the fear. That's where we have to come together collectively to be able to create safe spaces. And you're right, safety is keen for all of us. It's important to feel and to know that we are safe. If we're not safe, then it hinders the opportunity of exploring nature and getting out. And we're going to want to stay in a probably most safe space and not go nowhere other than our own comfort zone, which is in the neighborhood or at home, period. And in order for us to really get out and enjoy nature, especially BIPOC, we need to know that there is safe space there for us. When we understand that safe space is there, then, of course, the welcome of the invitation to explore is it's not pulling teeth. It just happens by default, basically. But safety is keen and it's important. But that's a responsibility for all of us to be able to put in place, not just the expectations. If there are expectations for BIPOC, to be able to raise that flag and talk about it. That's a collective effort from BIPOC and white folks coming together and working together to create these kind of safe spaces. Darrell Bock Yeah, absolutely. I mean, I'm from rural Alabama, and I mean, there are definitely places I will not go to if I go back home. Because I'm like, I know it is not safe because certain people feel a level of dominion, I could say, over the land. And like, you know, you don't want to go somewhere and then all of a sudden you're hearing gunshots. This is not safe. I feel like this is a good experience. So I completely understand that. Let's pivot from the documentary and talk more about what else you've been working on since 2017. And we'll have a link to the show notes to that interview, because I really want people to hear your story about how you came into being an adventurer or what this means to you. I think that interview does a great job of doing that. You mentioned Love is King, which is one of your nonprofit organizations. Tell me about that, because you started that during the pandemic, is that right? Yes, I did start that during the pandemic. The organization Love is King has been growing slowly and doing really, really well. It's inspired off of Martin Luther King, of course, and the exercise of love in the community and how we can use love to bring people together, to raise awareness, to create, again, going back to what we were talking earlier, and tied it to the outdoors is to create safe spaces, collectively working with many different races and companies and government companies, coming together in the act of love to help support BIPOC communities connecting to nature. Love is King has two initiatives. The first initiative is what we call Heritage Events. Heritage Events is centered around creating these really interesting environmental slash events, experiences, I call them experiences, that creates bridges into nature, understanding that BIPOC community and how culturally and festive that we are, and how we all come into nature very different and very creative and very unique. And so these Heritage Events experiences are just that. And what does this look like? This looks like only calendar year, we would highlight various different types of cultural or cultural engagements that gives us an opportunity to create experiences around holidays that celebrates people's backgrounds. And conceptually that turns into and some form of an environmental justice slash experience. A good example is we have say like, we have the Martin Luther King's birthday come up or black history. I would basically work on the behind the scenes and there's a bridge here in Portland, Oregon called the St. John's Bridge. And I will work in partnership with Forest Park Conservancy and we will collectively raise enough money to basically get the permits to basically lock up the entire bridge here in Portland. And we will lock up the entire bridge in Portland and we would basically create a reenactment of the Selma March. And so when that day comes, we would make relationships with a couple of the churches here in Portland, Oregon. We'll send out notices throughout all the communities in Portland, Oregon to come out on this day. And so this day looks like we will have three to four speakers and three to four speakers, including myself, we maybe have a Senator, we have a minister, a preacher there and everybody would speak. And then we have like a gospel ensemble that will show up and it's just gorgeous because right now we got the whole bridge locked down and everything's at quietness. And so you got this gospel choir right there on the bridge and they're singing two to three songs. It's just beautiful and echoing into a crowd or maybe like 500 to 600 people. And then we go to silence. And then after that silence, we'll all lock up hand to hand, shoulder to shoulder. And we'll walk this bridge in the spirit of the Selma March. And then on the other side of the bridge, this experience leads itself into the trails of Forest Park. And so this bridge will lead you into the trails. And so this march is marching into nature. And so we're marching into nature and we're exploring the trails. We got a designated trail that's been established by Forest Park for that day. We call it like the Black History Trail or the Martin Luther King Birthday Trail, et cetera. And you go down this trail and there's little milestones along the way of markers that will allow people to learn different history points of black history or Martin Luther King's birthday, et cetera. And that whole trail is like maybe like, it's like a half a mile long and it holds different history markers all the way through. And so that's the kind of experience what Heritage Events does is that we look to create really interesting type of environmental experiences that helps create bridges for communities to step into and to engage into the outdoors on a very, very basic entry level and to create a good time, good memories with the families, relatives, grandma, et cetera, and to enjoy in a festive way. And we do these Heritage Events throughout the year that will, and these would be like Martin Luther King, Black History Month, Native American, LGBTQ, Veterans Day. And it goes on throughout the year. And that's part of Love is King's engagement and helping to create safe spaces on a basic entry level of just getting out and just like taking a walk down a trail. That's it. And then the second initiative is Love is King Operation Rome. And that's centered around focusing around BIPOC leaders that are in different professional spaces that has an interest not just to recreating the outdoors but an interest of bringing the voice into congressional spaces because we were never invited into those spaces historically. And so Love is King works towards treating BIPOC advocates of public lands, fresh water, wildlife, and indigenous communities through that initiative program. And when they come out of that initiative program, they are paired with a white conservation groups that are looking to move forward into creating more type of working relationship spaces around their campaign, their work. And we collectively work and we bring BIPOC voices to decision-making tables as leaders and help have these conversations when it comes to developing or planning rules, regulations, bills passed amongst senators, et cetera where your voice matters because historically it was always one white voice led to make these decisions knowing that we live in a world of many diverse communities and they're making decisions on how we recreate. So today we're trying to change that with Through Love is King by bringing more diverse leaders with their talents and their skill sets and their experiences into these intimate conversations around decision makers to help make these decisions collectively to where the interests of making these decisions is not just from a white lens, but now it's from diverse lens. And so that's the second part of Love is King's work is creating BIPOC leaders into environmental justice advocates that help step into these spaces and play a higher role when it comes to our bills being passed, regulations and rules, et cetera on our parts or our wildlife refuge, et cetera, in a nutshell. – In a nutshell. No, both of those programs together sound fascinating. I mean, I think for the second one, I love that you're tying it into civic engagement even like what you have on the website like the under Let Freedom Roam, you say we believe that the freedom to roam in nature is a basic human right. And so imbuing people through Operation Roam with that to know that they can also be advocates for the land, for the wherever that they're at, I think is a really great thing. The heritage events also sound dope. I mean, it's funny you mentioned the march. I don't know if you know, I'm from Selma. – Oh, okay, right. So that speaks right to your vein right there. – So as you mentioned the bridge and closing everything down, I'm like, yeah, that's funny. I've walked across Edmund Pettus Bridge so many times that, I mean, as a kid, as an adult, I would say I get the meaning of it, but I walk across that bridge so many times as a kid, it had no meaning. It's just like, oh, we got to get to, there's a bait and tackle shop. It's like a convenience shop on the other side of the bridge. So you'd walk, you go through downtown, walk over the bridge, get to that, whatever. But I've walked across that bridge so many times and knowing the historical aspect of it, of course we know because we live in Selma. So we know about the marches and what that means and the significance. And I'm glad that you're sort of recreating that with these heritage events. Because one thing that sort of struck me, when I moved out of Selma, when I moved here to Atlanta, is how many people had no idea what that was. This is, of course, prior to Ava DuVernay's Selma, prior to, I think, probably the just increased awareness around it, given movements like Black Lives Matter, et cetera. I remember touching down here in Atlanta in 99 and talking to people and they thought I was from Salem, Oregon. They had never heard of Selma, didn't know what it was about, had not heard of the bridge. I was like, how do you not know about this? It's history. But I was like, well, maybe it's history because I grew up there. I don't know. I love the transference of that into other spaces and how you're tying in these conservational efforts into civic engagement. I think that is a super powerful thing. Thank you. I really appreciate it. It's definitely a lot of work, but it's beautiful. And the outcome is just grand. It's phenomenal. And seeing the work that we're doing at Your Love is King is pretty awesome. I enjoy what's happening with the organization and how things are forming. It's really awesome. And I have to say, this is also something that you spoke into being from when you were last on the show. When I had you back on the show in 2017, I asked like, where do you see yourself in the next five years? And you talked about kind of building this sort of outdoor educational experience. And that's what it sounds like you're doing through Love is King.

Now for this week's interview. I'm talking with Chad Brown. Chad wears a lot of hats. He's an adventurer, an accomplished documentary style portrait and adventure photographer, a creative director, a conservationist, and a filmmaker. He's the founder of two nonprofit organizations, Love is King and Soul River, Inc., and a U.S. Navy vet. He's also the director, executive producer, and one of the stars of the upcoming documentary Black Waters, Brothers in the Wild. Check out the show notes for a link to the trailer. Let's start the show. All right, so tell us who you are and what you do. My name's Chad Brown. I'm the founder of two nonprofits, Soul River, Inc., Love is King. And I'm also a creative slash film director that does independent films around BIPOC communities connected to the outdoors, as well as I'm an adventure photographer. Well, first of all, you know, welcome back to the show. It's been a while. I remember when we recorded back in 2017, you were episode 175. Just kind of in general, like how have things been going for you this year? Things been going really well. I've been really, really busy. This year, I'm basically been juggling with my second nonprofit, Love is King, and the work and growing that at the same time balancing a couple, you know, creative projects that I'm working on, one of the film projects that which I just finished and with my team and which is called Black Waters, and that's going to be premiering August 26. And so I've been really working on trying to raise awareness and get people to know what's going on, what's up and what's coming down the pipes. And at the same time, I'm scheduling and reworking a whole new film piecing around five women connecting into the outdoors and a survival five black women, actually. And the name of that film is called Mother. And that one takes place up in the Arctic Circle centered around conservation, indigenous and the survival of a black woman. And how does that look when they're moving through the outdoors? And so this whole film is something that I'll be launching next week, actually be shooting, starting shooting that next week. Oh, nice. So you've got a busy summer ahead, it looks like. I do. I do a pretty busy summer. But that's kind of been my style of just not being stagnant. I'm constantly moving and shaking. Well, let's dive into the film. I mentioned this before we started recording. I've watched it twice. Great film. It's called Black Waters, Brothers in the Wild. Tell the audience about it. The film is interesting. They keep it as streamlined as possible. We have five black men from five different backgrounds, five different lives, five different stories, five different challenges of how each one of us moves through this world as a black man, bringing these five men together, which I'm one of them into an outdoor space centered around the back country, the most wildest back country in the world, which is the Arctic Circle and dropping ourselves into this wild space and taking all the challenges of not just nature, but also taking on the challenges of many different issues that unravels within each one of us as we go on this adventure together. These unravels that becomes topics like, you know, dismantling masculinity in the outdoors and what does that look like as a black man and how do we approach that and how do we move through that in an outdoor setting? Then also tapping on topics of mentorship and then also tapping on topics of dealing with from stereotypes to and how we were raised and the fear of the outdoors and trying to understand like where does that fear comes from is something that we project or that's historical generational fear that comes into play. It's five black men that moves through with challenging topics that relates, that's centered around conversations in the wild at the same time of moving through this journey together and we are learning from one another and creating a really interesting brotherhood in the wild and experiencing conservation issues that are in that same space that we move through and we are challenged through those conversations, I mean through the conservation issues into some really interesting conversations that we have amongst each other in that dialogue and so it's a heavy dialogue type of piece and at the same time it balances itself with this really interesting adventure and of course we're stepping into a place where pretty much BIPOC black folks has never ventured really to, probably the safest way to say where this is the arctic circle in the most far off regions and for anyone to be able to to get into a space like that and so yeah in a nutshell that's really what the film is about. I mean that's a lot to pack into a film. Even as you say that and like you know I've watched it a couple of times now, well there's a couple of things that stick out. I think the main thing that stuck out to me was like I wanted it to be longer. I felt like as soon as I really got into it, it was over. I was like oh that's that's it? We could have went for another hour and I would have been fine, but I say that to say I mean I think one that's just a testament to the compelling way that it's been put together and the group of men that you've put together for this who I'll name them. Yeah. Mention yourself, James Edward Mills, Jamaica Dawes, Nick Brooks, and Alex Bailey, the five of you together kind of going on this sort of expedition. I'm curious why did you choose Alaska and the Kobuk River aside from the I think the harshness that you mentioned of the Arctic Circle? Was there some other significance to it for each of you? I'm not for sure. Before the film kind of popped into play here, we actually found ourselves connecting on a local river in North Carolina at an event that we were all attending. That was the first time that when we came together as some brothers on the water, we didn't really know each other really well, but the fishing was phenomenal and the friendship and relationships that we built was awesome. It felt right. It felt nice of making these kind of connections to each one of us who are we're anglers. We never really been on the water with just brothers. It's been a mix of like black folks and white folks, etc. But actually having this river and us on this water, brothers, it just felt good with all of us. And so that was when the spark of our relationships and the awesome synergy just started to take place. And I guess you could say we didn't really want this moment to leave us, even though that event was over and everybody's going at home. And so we stayed connected through that process. And through that connection, it was like I was really getting called up into from a creative standpoint, what could we do to kind of combine and tell the story tied into our friendship that we had on the water. Over the course of time, it evolved into the story of Black Waters. And I'm the one that selected the Arctic Circle, I think for a couple of reasons. I do a lot of expeditions up in the Arctic with my organizations, and I do a lot of work in the conservation space, me as a board member with Alaska Wilderness League and in working with the Gwich'in people there, etc. And I understand like on ground zero, that is ground zero for climate change or, you know, you'll call it climate science, etc. And there's a lot of issues happening, especially with the whole recent projects happening with the oil industry that's coming down and trying to take up the land, etc. And so why? I believe because the sensitive areas that are happening up in the Arctic Circle, and it's tied in with indigenous communities. And this is an opportunity to also bring this into a platform to share with more people so more people could be able to have an understanding or just have some knowledge on what's going on. And the Arctic is also, even to this day, I will call it, it's a white man's paradise of an outdoorsman. It takes a lot of money to get up into that space, just as much as it takes a lot of money to get yourself a seat to go to the moon. Really only the wealthy really plays in a space like that. If you're not a government employee or a scientist or some type of nonprofit worker activist that's tied in to work on the conservation spaces, etc., if you're not part of those or even probably in oil industry, military, then you have to come out of your pocket in order to see a place like that. And you're talking a baseline of $75,000 easily to be dropping. That's just getting there. That's not all the other things that you need in regards to the transportation and the food and everything or what it takes to really engage into an Arctic experience. And so that can be an easily six-figure type of trip. And that's usually, we're talking about, that's usually coming from somebody that has a lucrative income that can be able to afford that and not be hurt by that financial dollar that you're dropping there. And so going back to your question is that it shows representation that we can do it. There are BIPOC folks that are doing many phenomenal things and thriving in the backcountry and doing phenomenal adventures slash work, engagement, conservation, give back, etc. And we are in those spaces. We're not really seen a lot, but we are in those spaces. There may be a little of us and everything. And so I selected the Arctic Circle just as a, I think this is an opportunity to display how we thrive in the backcountry as black men. And then also it displays the urgency of the issues that are happening in the Arctic Circle tiding with the Gwich'in people and how the oil industry is definitely a threat to the indigenous nations that are there. And it also speaks to the, the endangerment of wildlife in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge. And you know, but yeah, so that's probably the why, and I gave you a lot of very lonely the answer to that, but yeah. I love that at the end of the documentary, there is a call to action for people to get involved with conservation of the area. But then also in the film, you're talking to people from the, you're talking to some of the Gwich'in people. I remember specifically you talk with Gideon, one of the elders, and he said this one line that just like, it was the line that definitely drew me in. I think it was as y'all were like leaving his home and he says like, remember when you go home, tell 10 or 20 people that we were here. And that was such a powerful line. Just, I think as a person of color, as a black person to hear that, like we were here. Oh, and just by you saying that you just gave me goosebumps, you know, but yeah. Yeah, absolutely. We were here, absolutely. Gwich'in people are phenomenal people and they are the people to that land, to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a government name of what we have named, but that land is, has been there and has been there before it was named the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and Gideon is an elder, one of the elders of the Arctic village and he hasn't had a phenomenal life. You know, he's also a US veteran Marine and has served his country and so he's seen a lot and done a lot and he's such a wonderful soul to be able to sit and speak to. He's an artist. He loves to share his culture, the art, and he's a wealth of knowledge. He really, you know, spent some time really engaging with Gideon at his house and he's very humble and he's very proud of his people and the culture and Gwich'in people, they're just a beautiful nation and it's pretty phenomenal and it's a blessing. Again, it's a true blessing to be able to have the access and to bring these brothers up into that space, you know, to get there. Their villages is located up on the north slope of the Brooks Range inside the Arctic Wildlife Refuge and you can't drive to a place like that. You've got to fly there, you know, bush plane will have to fly you in. It's a two-hour flight from Fairbanks and you're definitely going way backcountry and you're going behind time. Talking about the Arctic villages, wow, you can safely say it's probably like 30 years behind our society and it is kind of like going to like a third world country and it's right and they're part of the U.S. though, but they're proud, very proud people. They're connected to the land, 100% substance of how they live their life and they are the Caribou people. They live their life along the Caribou migration of the Caribou and all the storytelling is tied into the Caribou and that storytelling which is tied into like the religious side of how we call Christianity or Judaism or whatever, they have story creations and so and those story creations are centered all around the life cycle of the Caribou and how the Caribou was formed and how they moved. There's a story to each part of that Caribou to that relates to the Caribou people which are the Gwich'in people. You know, as I, you know, watch the documentary and especially as there were sort of these vignettes of each of the men that were on the trip with you, you know, kind of talking about how they have come into this trip and I don't know if you might have heard this as a comparison, but it reminded me of, it reminded me of camping episodes that you would see in sitcoms. And I mean that in a good way. Like even like it was sort of like a common trope of 90s sitcoms, but like it was a common trope of sitcoms, both black and white. Like Martin had a camping episode, Fresh Prince, Livin' Single. Even if we go back, like Sanford and Son had a camping episode. If we go, Blackish had a camping episode, but like those sort of bottle episodes always kind of serve as a crucible for the characters to step outside of their normal routine and to talk about specific issues or to fellowship in a way that they couldn't do in their sort of regular setting. So as I was watching it, that sort of comparison stuck out. It really stood out to me a lot. I see. Maybe that was the subconscious coming out of me as the director of the film. I don't know, but you said it well and you're right. I mean, the camping pieces in there, it sets the conversations and the tone and the conversations. And I definitely wanted to make sure they were really engaging conversations. I worked with James Mills. He's one of the, he's a really awesome, talented writer. You know, and he just recently became part of the National Geographic family as an explorer writer, which really, yeah, he's a bad-ass. You know, he's awesome too. And so I worked with James to help create these interesting topics that help create these conversations. Like the behind the scenes, we had the layout of some really awesome topics. And so when we set that scene up in, you know, one of the camp scenes, et cetera, we would use that topic as a way to spark the conversations of what we needed to make it more as authentic as possible. It was just to spark it and then however that lands, it lands and we just go with it and we start to speak into that. But yeah, that sitcom mindset of what you just shared with me, that's pretty cool. Yeah, I'll take it. I'll take it. It's for sure. So what do you want people to kind of get from the documentary? I mean, we're recording this right now, just so folks know, we're recording this in July, but by the time this comes out, there'll be September. There will have been some screenings for the film. There'll be some also in the future. Like what do you want people to get from it once they viewed it? I want people to be able to walk away. So let's like talk about this. So two points to this is number one, we're going to have a mixed audience. We're going to have black folks, of course, just going to come and check out the family. We definitely have white folks that will definitely gravitate to checking out the film. From a black perspective, BIPOC, just say BIPOC. We're already into the outdoors, but what we want them to, for folks to feel, to find inspiration in what we're doing. And to want to explore more and go deeper into our parks, our wildlife refuge, and just really engage into the outdoors and engage without the fear, right? Into this mountain bike. What we're doing is definitely something that you don't find a lot of BIPOC going that far beyond into spaces like this. And we, we want, you know, BIPOC communities to really find inspiration into wanting to explore adventure and however adventure lands on you. That's your venture. You don't have to go above and beyond, but we want folks, BIPOC folks to be inspired and to want to explore more and feel good about it. And know that they belong in that space just as much as everybody else. And this is their freedom to roam, to roam further and bolder and explore the wonders of what nature has to offer. From a white perspective, we want white folks to be able to walk away and take the time to think about the conversations that we have that could be able to play a role, especially amongst decision makers in the outdoor space of outdoor brand companies or in decision-making positions that has the ability to make change. And that making that change is making things much more accessible, helping with creating more bridges to the outdoors. Not to teach BIPOC folks really how to backpack, et cetera, because we are, we've been in these spaces. We've been around the outdoors many, for many years, et cetera. It's really about working together to help create safe spaces in the outdoors for many BIPOC communities to feel comfortable. And when we can feel comfortable, then that comfort opens ourselves up to want to explore more and to experience what nature has to offer without the fear. Understanding the political climate that we are in, which is much more stronger and richer when we're talking about bigotry, hate, ignorance, and racism. Collectively, as white folks and Black folks and BIPOC, et cetera, we all come together. It takes a collective effort to be able to take a stand and face that and make spaces much more safe, especially in green spaces, for all of us to be able to have a successful and enlightening experience. And that's what we want for everybody. And I think also with this film is to also create spaces for Black men. There's many initiatives out there in our world, urban world slash outdoor world. And there's really awesome initiatives of giving back and helping for little girls to LGBTQ, to cancer, to many, many issues out there and many great initiatives that are taking that on and peoples creating these nonprofits, et cetera, even in the outdoor world. But you don't see really a lot of effort in putting initiatives into supporting young Black boys and Black men. And you don't see the platforms of Black men that are in the outdoor spaces that are thriving. And as we want young Black boys to see that, to make those connections and that representation, representation matters, right? When you see Black men that are kayaking, hiking, they're doing phenomenal things, they are thriving, surviving, maybe flying planes, et cetera, whatever, bush planes, et cetera, that needs to be seen and it needs to be elevated just as much as any other initiative out there. That's important for young Black boys in urban world to be able to see that. We have the NBA, we have the music, blah, blah, blah, but we have brothers out there that are really doing some phenomenal work in the outdoor world just as much as a Black park ranger. That should be on the pedestal. Young boys needs to see those kind of things that makes that connection and to be inspired and know that they can also explore and they can also find a career path in those spaces as well. I think everything, that whole takeaway is a collective effort of coming together and it's not just a Black thing, such as a white thing, it's what I'm hoping at the end, bigger conversations can take place, inspiration slash helping to create change and awareness, but coming together and collectively talking about it. As you saw in the film, there's many different conversations and topics, et cetera, that we are tackling and we're having conversations about and as you said, that you want it more, you wanted to see more. What this is the more, it's the aftermath. When this film is done, the more is hoping that conversations can still be carried and helping to solve many different problems within our social justice space slash environmental justice space when it comes to BIPOC, recreating and advocacy in the outdoors, et cetera. I love that. Even when you say the outdoors, I feel like that can take a couple of different forms. Of course, it can take the form that you're talking about or it's deep in the woods or in a more exotic locale, but it could also be running. It could be birdwatching. It could be things like that. Even when I think about, I'm sort of thinking of the intersection of where I've seen black people and nature over the past, I don't know, five or six years. Of course, you had the guy who got called out or I think some woman tried to call him out for birdwatching in Central Park, Christian Cooper. You've got, there was this guy, I don't even know if he's still big anymore, but there was this dude named Brother Nature that was doing all these interactions with animals and stuff. There's someone I'm thinking of now, she's big on TikTok. I don't know if she's big on any other platforms, but this woman, Alexis Nicole, who goes by the Black Forager, who basically talks about native plants and things like that and gives these great history lessons behind how all of this came about and how it shouldn't be this trapped, secretive sort of knowledge. I feel like, I don't know, that's all maybe in the same realm, but sort of attacking a problem from different angles. I don't know. Brian Absolutely, absolutely. It is in the same angle. You don't have to go above and beyond to get your adventure on. Your adventure could be right down the road into a park. We just want you to be able to feel inspired to explore. However that lands with you, that becomes your personal exploration, your walk, right? And learn and know that nature is for everyone and nature is healing for everyone. Some of us don't understand how nature can be healing and the ones who don't understand, those are really the ones we want to be able to capture and say, hey, you find an inspiration and get out there and we can help you experience that adventure and that adventure can be part of your healing process in nature. Brian Yeah, but many of those avenues that you mentioned, some of those folks you mentioned, absolutely. The Black Forger, she's amazing. I follow her as well. She's amazing. Brian It's funny, I don't know, a sort of popular derisive comment that's come about in the last couple of years, but I've heard it since I was a kid, but telling people to go outside and touch grass, really go outside and touch some grass. Disconnect for a minute, get off the computer, spend a little bit of time. And even if it's just like standing in your yard or standing in your apartment complex's common area, whatever, just venture out into nature. Brian Exactly, exactly. You know, here's one thing which I'm always forgetting a lot, but it's so simple. It's so simple that we don't think about it and it's not even part of our probably lifestyle, I guess. And it's so simple is that the next time you go outside, take your shoes off and walk in the grass, period. The grounding of that is phenomenal. And not everybody does that. You know, it's just the most simplest thing. Take your shoes off and walk through the grass, walk through the grass, walk through the sand and just feel what that feels like. You know, when you're just connecting to nature and just that grounding alone can just help greatly with the soul, with the healing, clarity to the mind. You know, it's that grounding piece is just stepping outside, take your shoes off and walk to that grass. Sit there for a second, you know, sit down and let your feet just settle in that grass. But yeah, anyway. Brian Yeah. One thing that also has come into mind is you sort of mentioned how you want people to, I guess not only just receive the documentary, but also what to take away from it, I would hope is also safety. Brian Yes. Being safe in these spaces. I mean, I was asking about the locale cause I'm like, oh, this is a pretty far out locale for you all to have shot this. But then I was thinking like, could you have done the same thing in rural North Carolina and felt safe? I don't know. I want people to also be safe in these spaces.

"And he's not going to be a great price, but he's my top pick in the Chick-fil-A to be perfectly honest though, Dave. It's a really good race. It's a really tough race to handicap as far as I'm concerned. I don't have a very good grasp on it. It's not going to be a straight play for me. And if I play horizontal wagers using the 6th race tomorrow, it's probably going to be spreading and possibly even hitting the all button because there just could be a total pace meltdown and horses coming from way out of it. 7th race on the card tomorrow is the gallet. This is for Phillies and mayors going a mile and a 16th on the turf. We have a field of 7 coming together in this race Dave. The morning line favorite in just a mild favor on the morning line is number one white beam for Chad Brown and irad Ortiz. I can tell you that our friends over at am wager and form to win think that number four eminent Victor is an interesting play to moral four to one on the morning line. Another Chad Brown trainee with flavian Prada board. I think you can go a lot of different ways and hear white bean for Chad Brown is stretching out from a mile. This is a horse that ran in France and Great Britain last year off between October of last year to April of this year and ran pretty well in a 5 horse field missed by a neck off at about 7 to two in a stakes race at aqueduct in mid April. Second off of layoffs, second is a four year old. It's Chad and Judd Mont makes a ton of sense with irad Ortiz up that being said, I don't know that white bean looks dramatically better than several others, including the aforementioned eminent Victor who is another Chad Brown horse also first is a four year old, has two wins off the bench and this is off the bench. I don't know if eminent Victor maybe didn't like the yielding corset aqueduct back in November or the good course at aqueduct in October, but last summer ran pretty well, including missing by a nose in the grade three Lake George at Saratoga and is reunited here with flavian Pratt where I think is when eminent Victor has run her best. I would also suggest that number two sopran basilia for gram motion is interesting. I think the race is this worst ran in Italy are better than the races, the white being ran in France and Great Britain. In fact, this is, of course, that's run against boys once or twice, just missed by a neck and a group two going a mile and a quarter last time and I think for Louis say it's just kind of interesting on the cutback here. I don't think Vergara for Graham motion is out of the question here. 7 to two on the morning line first is a four year old. The run in the sands point was solid to back one at Kentucky downs, ran a Goodwin and a graded race at woodbine, so make sense to me too, and princess theorem on the outside for Brendan Walsh and Tyler gaff Leon certainly has not beaten this caliber, but is in very, very good form and is possible. I went with soprano basilia, I just thought the price was a little bit better than a couple of the other ones. I do think the European form is pretty strong, but I understand that motion does not usually fire his best first in North America, though he is really, really good off long layoffs. Yeah, I have mixed feelings about so prone basilier or basile, but I don't know what the Italian form is compared to the higher group level races in France and in England and in Ireland where we basically see the cream of the crop over there in Europe. I'm not downplaying the Italian form. I just honestly don't know how that stands up to the rest of the European group racing. That's where it's a little bit of a confusion for me in this spot. Everything else you said makes sense. I ended up picking white beam, I liked what I saw first time out. And even though she finished second in the race, I thought she fired home well in that race. I trust in irad Ortiz, I think it's a monster writer change picking up I read Ortiz from almost anybody else, and that's what happens here with white beam. So white beam for me, the two for Dave in the gallery tomorrow raised 7 at pimlico and a reminder, the form to win selection is number four eminent Victor. All right, we're going to take a break when we come back. We'll continue with this monster card on Preakness day at pimlico with the dinner party, the ski pat and the Jim McKay turf sprint. You're listening to the am wager weekend states preview on the horse racing radio network. This is Maryland horse week on HR RN.

"Got. And I'm going to present you guys with two horses, competing against each other. And designated races later today. And you just tell me who you got and why you like that horse. So here we go. One. In Italian or with the moonlight, the two favorites in Keenan's Jenny Wiley later today. Timmy, who you got. I got into Italian. Brown has won this race 5 straight 5 knots, 5 straight times. He's one of 5 times he's going for number 6. I think in Italian is the horse that's going to give him number 6. 5 wins in 9 career starts very, very classy. 5 year old mayor. Are you going against Chad Brown or Charlie appleby? I'm going with Charlie appleby. Applebee seems to come over and win everything and I'm going with appleby. All right, with the moonlight for Dale and Italian for Tim, how about Louisiana Derby runner up disarm or recent maiden winner first mission in the Lexington stakes later today. Timmy, who you got. I'm taking first mission, Brad Cox. Only two starts. Broke his maiden. And I'm not really impressed with disarm. You know what? I want to have to go with Timmy on this one because I need this arm right to get any points. Don't need another one jumping me in the point system. Well played Dale Romans. One more. Secret secret oath or Claire in today's apple blossom. At Oakland, Timmy, who you got. I have to take secret oath because secret oath is now in my stable. It lost in the fog. And I need to get some points to catch up to mister Romans. And Claire is secret already beat Clara in their first start, both of them for this year. I think secret though keeps it going for the coach. Yeah, I'll go seek her out to simply because I will never go against Wayne. If he likes her, I like her. All right, there you go. We'll do it with a few more races next week here. Who you got a brand new segment on IS, they answer quick update on the showdown. Last week Dale padded his lead 31 to 20 is what the score stands right now. Verifying, finishing second, the bluegrass. Timmy had a shot with wonder wheel, but she was disappointing in the Ashland. So Dale holds a 31 to 20 lead coming into this week and you can go to horse racing radio dot net to see the latest score updates every single week. All right, it is time now

"Three big stakes on Saturday's card at keeneland James and we glossed over it a little bit, but the grade three Lexington, one of the two graded stakes on the card. Let's talk a little bit about that and when we'll get to the Jenny Wiley and your best bet as well. Mentioned that you thought that even though disarm is certainly one of the ones to beat there are other horses that are major players in the Lexington. Yeah, there really are, you know, this first mission, I mean, to me, just the way it was bet off the board in that last start, you know, I just got a sense, you know, he's gonna take some money in there and he could be, you know, he shows like a bullet work, you know, or fast works, 47 and four and fast works in preparation. So it looks like it could be a good one for Brad Cox. So, you know, I definitely have an in fearful of that horse, but it's a really good feel disarm and empire strikes fast and Arabian Lion. They're all legitimate contenders in there. Even have played you have a horse flavin Pratt demolition duke that comes outside that comes off a second to that bishop spay who I've mentioned earlier that he first mission. So Brett Cox got a couple horses in there. The grade one Jenny Wiley goes as race ten on the Saturday card at Keenan good group of Phillies and mayors going a mile and a 16th on the turf and it brings back in Italian who was last seen finishing second to Tuesday in the breeders cup Philly and mayor turf at keeneland last November. She's got a lot of natural speed and there's no doubt about it when she puts it all together. She's a tough one to beat. Yeah, she gets, I read or tease Joel Rosario was up for last three starts. I had written her previously and he raped him out and yeah, she showed her real affinity for keenland, no doubt about it. If she's on her game, she's going to be tough to be Chad brown's got some other contenders in there. I forget who it was, maybe it was Chris earlier reference the with the moonlight who's coming off back to back stakes wins and Dubai on the turf over there and shipped over when the Saratoga Saratoga oaks last summer in August. So he's got some good rivals, but tough to envision in Italian if she's on her game, Bobby get beat. Yeah, certainly with the moonlight is one of the ones who's a major player in that race. And speak of the devil's run good races, queen goddess, of course, coming off nice win in the Pegasus Philly and mayor turf last time out. White frost back in her good form as well should be a fun event that Jenny Wiley on Saturday mentioned there were three stakes on the keenland Saturday program and the one we haven't talked about yet is where your best bet of the weekend lands. It's the quarter $1 million giants causeway for Phillies and mayors sprinting 5 and a half furlongs on the turf. I'm going to say this to start off with James. I find something fundamentally wrong with the Giant's Causeway stakes being a filly in mayor turf sprint. No doubt about it. I mean, yeah, I mean, it's just, it's not, it's kind of like, it's got to be like a one mile turf race, or something along those lines. What do they call giants causeway? Gosh, I forgot it now, but he was a machine. And ran a lot of races that one year before getting beat ahead by tis now and the British cup classic. I like trained to Artemis, the one horse from the rail. A lot of speed in here, but definitely no standouts on paper. This is kind of race, probably people will spread. I don't mind taking a stand. I think this 5 year old mayor is going pretty good for Kelly breen. And the thing I like is that, you know, or last went who starts back came from the rail.

"I think skip a long stock is a little bit vulnerable at short odds. I think it's going to be over better than that spot. I haven't done enough research on it, but that was like a little bit of a favorite that I was a little bit dubious of. Obviously, all these Chad Brown really well represented in the hillsborough. He loves to send horses over to these turf stakes and I'll be excited to see both shanta Sara and Rozier come back on Saturday. Yeah, I can't figure out what's going on with chant to Sara. She was terrible in that race, the finale on breeders cup Saturday at keeneland where she was even money and basically never ran a step. Then she ran a pretty good race behind queen goddess and the Pegasus Philly and Mary turf. Last time out, well, well, clear of everyone else. I know she has races in her past performances that would crush this field. I just don't know if she has that race this Saturday and maybe she doesn't need that race to win this race. Maybe a repeat of that last start and the Pegasus is good enough, but she looks like she's going to be tough. She is two to one on the board or two to one on the morning line for Chad Brown. And I read Ortiz. You know, earlier in the show, we got a call about the oaks Derby future wager. And we've heard stuff about hoosier Philly and you were mentioning the cult and there are some other Phillies. I thought what was really interesting this last weekend is that phase was not transferred from Bob Baffert to a an eligible trainer for the possibility of earning points toward the Kentucky oaks. Who's owned by Michael lund Peterson, stayed in Bob Baffert's barn. She remained undefeated by winning the Santa Isabel and by doing so did not basically gave up on the chance of getting those oaks points. Yes, he looks really good. That was her best race today. And I apologize. But he also owns faustin, who I know is a cult that you really like for Bob Baffert that was not transferred away. He's the owner of gamine, who, of course, was disqualified when she ran in the Kentucky oaks a few years ago. And I've seen stories about phase a winning or not getting points, but none of the stories says anything about why. Because it just makes so much sense to ask the question, why was she not transferred? Obviously, she is one of the better three year old Phillies in the country this year. Whether or not you think she's the best, or she has a chance in the Kentucky oaks. She certainly one of the ones at this point. And she would be one of the favorites I believe in the Kentucky oaks if she wins the San Anita oaks in her next start. But the fact that they didn't transfer away from baffert. Is that a loyalty that mister Peterson asked a baffert? Does he have some sort of a grudge against Churchill downs? I can't imagine it's just the fact that he doesn't think that she's good enough to win the Kentucky oaks. I don't think that's why they wouldn't transfer it. But none of the stories ask that question or wrote about it, even to the point of saying there was no comment when asked about this. And that bothers me a little bit. You know, faustin, I would say this, he worked on February 18th and hadn't worked again. And they had that decision to make before the 28th. And I'm a little bit thinking a little bit suspicious because I drafted him in a fantasy poll. I'm a little bit suspicious that something happened to him coming out of that work and he might be sidelined. So to me, the Derby and oaks are different equations. Royal Belmont skipped the oaks with royal delta like, you know, 6, 7 years ago. I think if Pfizer was a Philly and she was healthy, she might be switching, but yeah, it looks like she's aiming for the black eyed Susan. And baffert will have some other horses for the undercard of those races that pivot co because he always comes like Don Derby day and oaks day. I know his undercard races with horses. So he'll just be shifting those pimlico this year. Yeah, very, very interesting. By the way, I assume that non three year olds that Bob Baffert has that if he wants to run non three year olds on Kentucky Derby or Kentucky oaks day, they didn't have to be transferred to anyone by a certain time. They could literally be transferred right before entry date. Am I right on that? I don't know about that. That's a good question, but I'm not aware of that. You know, yeah, I mean, at least entry day, perhaps. So that's an interesting question. I hadn't actually heard that be mentioned so far. Hey, I do want to mention real quick, Bobby. Bursa dot com. We're going to have available on Facebook, Twitter, other social places, PP links, Tampa Bay Derby, Kentucky Derby future wager, we're either going to have even going to have links for the NHC handicap tournament mandatory races. Also going to have tons of handicap and reports and PPs. And I want to mention I'll be doing the twin spires triple play on the E Quan forum Saturday morning with Mike penna, so check that out. All right, so a lot of great stuff going on with bris net, lots of great stuff over with our friends at twin spires. And if you didn't get enough of James selections tonight on the prison at dot com call and show he is going to be back with three big plays that twin spiders, triple play, where James and all of his colleagues do such a great job as part of the equine forum every Saturday morning 8 to 11 Eastern Time here on HR RN. Well, James, it seems like we're about halfway home on this

"Reveille to fire a big shot. The other one that intrigues me is another one shipping in from the other side of the pond and number 8 pop a Leo or papal Leo for Mark Cassie and Louise Tsai as this one's been racing in Ireland. I'm probably going to use both revel in and papal Leo, but the fact that Chad Brown is so good in these situations, I'm going to lead into revelry to as my top choice Byron going a little bit off the rails with number two American rockette is where both trying to beat Cairo consort in the here comes the bride. Moving ahead to the tenth race tomorrow at Gulfstream park probably one of the shortest priced horses we're going to see all day, if not the shortest price. It's the Gulf Stream park mile, great to event for the four year olds and up going the one turn mile at Gulfstream field of 9, but the race really goes through number 7 charge it who's four to 5 on the morning line and Byron. I know there isn't fixed odds wagering at Gulfstream park if there was people would be running to the Windows. Yeah, I have a hard time envisioning that he's not going to be two to 5 or less, you know, this is a horse that won the dwyer. In fact, I think you played the race replay as we started to show last year by 23 lengths. You came back getting one allowance optional claimer and his first start of the year, stylishly. The only thing I just, I just can't get excited about him at one to 5 two to 5. He is a horse that after the Derby last year they did breathing breathing operation to help him. Sometimes those things can reoccur. It certainly hasn't looked like that's happened to him. He looks like he's performing at a high level. But, you know, add that all up, short price, and that history and I'm going to take a chance with an alternative. So I'll try indoors who looks to me like a horse that is just really well suited to long one turn races. He won the Fred hooper last time out of the mile. Whether or not he's good enough to be charged, I don't know, charging probably has to go off form, but to me he's a logical alternative. All right, so endorsed for Byron, I'm not going to try to beat the favorite charge it. I'm certainly not going to play him. If he's any of those prices that you mentioned, one to 5, two to 5 anywhere around that. But to me, he looks like strictly a single in this spot. And I do not, unlike a lot of other people who look to single these horses, usually when they're picked for pick 5 sequences and I find a single being an odds on horse. It's a sequence I'm not really interested in playing because it's not I'm not finding out anything that anybody else isn't doing. So I think he's probably a single if you're somebody who's inclined to play these horizontal plays. But I think 90% of the tickets are going to have him singled on it. It seems like. So giving charge it out as my play in the Gulf Stream park mile is not very difficult. I think he's my most likely winner on the card, but he won't be my best bet because I'm not going to pick a two to 5 shot as my best bet today. All right, moving to the 11th race, the grade three honey Fox for the Phillies and mayors going a mile on the turf, another nice field, 11 of them set to go to post in the honey Fox. And the morning line favorite here is number three speak of the devil for Chad Brown and I rat Ortiz boy her win off the bench at Churchill downs in the distaff turf mile last May was really eye popping and anything close to that. They're all running for second. Yeah, she was spectacular. I remember watching the race was on Derby day and it was just like holy cow kind of an effort and I really expected she'd be tough in the just a game coming back and she just clearly did not fire, but that was some really good Phillies in there. Regal glory in Italian, et cetera but something obviously went amiss because she went on the sidelines. Now one thing I will say about her is, you know, you look at her form and you see that she clearly likes some given the ground. She comes from off the pace. So, you know, Florida in the winter time, you're typically looking at firm turf, you're also looking at a shorter stretch there at Gulfstream compared to say what she might have experienced at Churchill. So, you know, she's a short price just to be a little different and because she is coming back from a layoff. I went with white frost, 7 to two. She's a graded stakes winner. She's two for two. It Gulfstream park. She had a nice comeback win after 14 months on the sidelines. I think speak of the devil likely has to return at less than her best, but if she does, white frost could be the one to beat her. Yeah, I agree with that. And I think if speak of the devil doesn't run her race, there are several in here who look like they could really be in the mix down the line, but white frost was always cut out to be a good one. She's obviously had some sort of issues with all those big layoffs and only racing 6 times as a 5 year old mayor and her first race was back in 2020. She's obviously had issues, but when she's right, she's really, really good. That being said, I don't think she's as good as speak of the devil. The fact that speak of the devil was even money against regal glory and in Italian means to me that she's cut out to be really, really good and significantly better than this grade three competition. She's going to see tomorrow as big of a favorite as charge it is in the Gulf Stream park mile to me. I would much rather single speak of the devil at 7 to 5 on the morning line in the honey Fox. She's my play in race 11 at Gulfstream. All right, we're going to take a break. When we come back, we have three more Gulfstream races to look at, including the big one, the grade two fountain of youth. You're listening to the weekend takes preview on the horse racing radio network.

"I'm Bobby Newman along with Byron king, the news editor from bloodhorse sitting in the catbird and the co host seat I should say today. Byron, thanks for taking the time. And I hope you're going to have some winners in your back pocket for everyone. I certainly hope so too, Bobby. Thank you for having me. All right, we've got 14 races from around the country. We're going to look at on tonight's edition of the weekend stakes preview, including four big points qualifiers on the road to this year's Kentucky Derby. We're going to start off our analysis by looking at some of the races on that monster Gulf Stream card tomorrow. I think they actually have 9 graded stakes in all on tomorrow's card. And we're going to look at 7 of the 9 tonight starting with race number 8. This race begins a dollar or rather a 50 cent pick three. There's high 5 wagering double X act. Everything that you would normally have on a Gulfstream park card that's a grade three Canadian turf. Four year olds are not going to go a mile in a 16th on the lawn. We've got a field of ten going to post Byron. Morning line favor is number three Emanuel who's coming off a resounding win in the grade three Tampa Bay stakes. And he's my pick, Bobby. This is a horse that I really liked at times last year. It was actually on the Derby trail for a little bit. Ran forth in the fountain of youth, a year ago and was later third in the bluegrass, but ultimately he was placed on the grass last year, no surprise given his sire more than ready, and he became a graded winter last year on the turf, then went off form, and Saratoga was freshened, came back and ran lights out a Tampa Bay, ran a mile in the 16th in one 39 and a 5th. I mean, we're just smoking and he got a great rag number two, and so this is a horse that I think has got a really bright future as a turf miler. A manual 8 to 5 on the morning line, Byron selection. I'm going to go to number 5 good governance who's coming out of the grade one Pegasus turf club turf invitational I should say, didn't have the cleanest of trips look like he was making a pretty good move from the back of the pack into the stretch and then if you're looking at the past performances, you can see a trouble line that said that he had trouble late. I don't know if he was going to beat horses like a tone and Iver and speaking scout. But I think he was going to be a lot closer than 9th beaten four lengths. It was really a pretty good effort despite what looks like he was at the back of the pack. And I think this is a little bit of a softer spot than what he saw in that grade one. Julian le Peru is getting aboard the enemy a trainee for the first time in good governance. I think we'll appreciate the little bit of software company. So Canadian turf race number 8 Byron likes the favorite number three of manual. I'm going to go with number 5 good governance to spring the slide upset. 9th race is the grade three here comes the bride for the three year old Phillies going one mile on the turf. We've got a big field of 12 going in this one Byron and the morning line favorite is number 7 Cairo consort who's writing a two race win streak into this race tomorrow. And there's a lot to like about this or I mean she blew the break last time in the sweetest chant and still somehow found a way to win. She rallied from 9th farther from behind than she normally races. She was great one place last year twice. The natalma and then the British kept juvenile Phillies and they bought her for a ton of money, but she's going to be a lot lower. I think than her three to one morning line. I think you're going to see something something defied, you know? On her. So I'm going to take a flyer on a horse that I think could potentially move up with the surface switch, and that is American rockette. She is by American pharaoh. Of course, the Triple Crown winner of 2015, but he gets a lot of turf winners. And this Philly is actually a have to Frank's rockette, who, of course, fans are probably familiar with as a turf sprinter for Belmont, but the dam one on the grass. And some of the other siblings have won on the turf. They tried to run her once on the grass that came off and she's been running in really tough company and she's 12 to one. So I'm going to take a flyer with American rockette. All right, so you're taking a little bit of a price. I'm also going to try for a little bit of a price, not quite as big, though, with number 6 revel in a first time in the country Philly for trainer Chad Brown. She's been running in France on the turf last year and she won two over three starts over there. I think the company that she was running against there is good, not fantastic, but she's been beating them, and she's bred to be better long than short. Being out of recollets out of a machiavellian mayor also loved the fact that Chad Brown in this position, he's great with these newcomers to the country, great with these extended layoff types winning about a 27% clip in eth of those categories.

"Welcome back to the prisoner dot com call and show here on HR and Bobby Newman James Scully, phone lines are open, give us a call 8 8 8 9 6 6 four 7 7 6 is the number before we look a little bit at the fountain of youth and maybe a little bit on the Gulf Stream car. Let's go back out to the phone Steve in New York. You've got Bobby and James. How's it going? Hey, Steve, what's going on? Great. Good. Actually, I wasn't planning on calling, but I just heard Charles and he had remembered the guy Charles has got a sharp memory. You remember that I loved confidence games in the lecomte and I was saying he hoped I had him well, let me tell you. I loved confidence games. I went to play him again, but just like you guys are talking about, that track was playing so biased against horses up front. So I went to the back. I went to red route one. I went to that low bow horse that I thought was going to be flying off the page, but he didn't like the mud. And to answer Charles question, no, I got off confidence games, but not because I didn't love him anymore. I just, I played the bias. So just lesson learned, you know, if you like a horse stick with a bias, but I tend to do that, right? I tend to shift with how the track is playing that day. So yeah, I miss them at 18 to one that's unfortunate. But like going forward, founding youth, I'm not going to miss on rocket one rocket can because the race that I saw confidence games in that I loved him in was going back to last year. If you go guys go back to last year, I think it was like November or October. James, you probably remember this. Yeah, it was the stars of tomorrow two program on November 26th. Yes, and they ran and I saw that race. And I love two of them that day have coming out of that race. And I was like, I'm playing these horses when they come back. So hit rocket can in the holy bowl. I went after confidence games in a little comp. Obviously didn't run them back this week, but this week, everybody's going to get off of a rocket can. Everybody. He's going to drift up. What do you guys think? I think he's going to be ten to one. And I'm just going to hammer him in the wind pool. But I just want to give Charles that update. Now, unfortunately, I missed out. All right, Steve. Appreciate your call. So Steve thinking confidence game was going to be closer to the pace and he had different tactics this past weekend in the rebel and used that off the paste run to his liking and to show up for the long shot victory in the rebel. He says he's on rocket can. The holy bull winner was 8 to one on the morning line in the fountain of youth. Of course, all eyes are most eyes are going to be on the two year old champ from last year forte, who's making his three year old debut by all accounts. He's been working well up at Palm Beach downs for Todd pletcher for his return to the races. If all goes well, he'll go from this race to most likely the bluegrass with the Florida Derby as a backup plan and then maybe The Kentucky Derby. How do you see the fountain of youth coming together, James? Well, I hate to hear that for Steve. It was good call though to identify that race. And I can see why he thought that because both of his wins that allowance were confidence game in his maiden whim or wired wire, but you're right, he did change tactics. He was, he was like 6 months off the pace in 5th in the early going, so he did set back and show some versatility. I see the race. I mean, one thing about the race is I wonder a little bit about the pace, Bobby. I mean, it doesn't look like there's like really like perhaps true speed, this last out made winter mage, probably before. And such. But I think the horses with two year old class forte and policing 7s are going to be, you know, I think forte will be a solid favorite. Lazy 7s who had a troubled start in the breeders cup juvenile when he rallied for fourth that day is going to take action as well. He looks like he's training well for Chad Brown. So those horses with two year old class, I think we'll take the lion's share of bedding. If general Jim comes out, he's got some kind of issue apparently. And he's become questionable to run. If he comes out, that would probably hurt Steve's price on rocket can because he's listed at 8 to one on the morning line and you know, it's possible he could get a price in that range. What do you think, Bobby? I think he will. For some reason, I think there are people going to be betting mage a little bit in this spot. I don't think he's going to be favored. But I actually would not be surprised if he's second or third choice in the wage ring. He got a nice right up the other day. And this Gustavo Delgado is wins plenty of races and he's won these big races in the past. You know, he's taken horses that are relatively unknown and done very, very well with this. And he's good in those big day Saturday maidens. No doubt about it. I've talked about that or seen people talk about that. He shows up on these big racing days and made races and he comes with like, you know, he comes prepared. I'll tell you this. I know that you use the ultimate pass performances from our good friends at brisnet. You know, it's very rare to see a first time starter run a triple digit speed rating on these ultimate past performances, but that's exactly what mage did going 7 furlongs in his debut. So I don't know where that puts him compared to forte. I mean, maybe he improves like a lot of horses do from their debut to their second start. But he'll probably be in front of forte most of the way. And I just have a feeling mage is going to be the horse that takes a little bit of money into forte. Yeah, and if he gets out there clear because like I said, I mean, I think he has a chance if he gets out there clear he could run a good race, you know, on the front end. I mean, it's not impossible forte, it looks extremely formidable. You know, rocket cans coming on for Belmont in respect to his chances and I talked about buddies in 7s, but you know, it may impossible if he got that if he got that trip. You know, it depends on how the pace shapes up because cassiano is definitely going to send off mage as far as that one O one at speed rating. You're right. I mean, the only real two year old I can remember last year was Arabian Lion. And I mean, Arabian night, look how good he is. He got like a one O 5, what in that breeder's cup Saturday undercard maiden race for baffert that day and as a top three year old. So that's a big number, he did get clearer in that race and it might take some pressure and he stretching from 7 to mine a 16th, but he's intriguing. While the fountain of youth is not the only stake on the card at Gulfstream on Saturday, I think they have 9 stakes on the card out of a 14 race car. And one of them is your best play of the day. Where are we going? All right, I am going to race number 9 at goldstream, it is the.

"And sports station one O four three the pan presents. Flare and Evans. Yeah, I do not like the beginning shows under these circumstances. Rushed. Yeah, rushed. Yeah, yep. You know me. I like to get in a little bit earlier. I like to get settled in. I like to get organized. But this was a rush job this morning. Yeah, what happened? I felt like I felt like Chad Brown. Orlando Franklin. But she don't feel rushed. That's just their natural like our guys act by. It's like their natural biorhythms. Right. They just roll in and they're ready to go. So I've never been one to like to just come in and as the music's playing. Yeah, no, no, no. But yeah, the drive this morning. You all right? Not that the drive itself, the conversations. With side streets. Side streets, I mean, no, but it was not great, but nothing unusual, but it just seemed like there were either a lot of idiots out there this morning or the overly overly overly cautious drivers that can be dangerous because the flasher. The flashers. The one that just decides this is too much for me and they just like all of a sudden slow down. Don't like ten miles an hour in the middle lane and you're coming up behind and like, wow, hey, now I do want to make an announcement here if you are heading this is serious. If you are heading north on I 25 towards the tech center, I would recommend a different route. There is a semi that's jackknife, right about I 25 and Bellevue. Right in the middle lane. And traffic is backed up. Hopefully you're not. I did not run. I didn't run into that. No, it's recent enough that as I was heading southbound, I passed the jackknife and traffic had backed up at this point probably about mile, half mile, three quarters of a mile, but it's going to continue for a while. It must have jackknife shortly after. I had already gotten off by 25 this morning. I 25 was not most of the streets on my drive this street were wet and then I 25 was fine, but anyhow it's going to get you know it's going to get slippery, Mike. You know it's going to get bad. It's going to get worse. Well, before it gets better. If you're coming up from Castle Rock, Parker, if you're heading north on I 25, I would recommend go home. Yes, go home. Go back to bed today off. You have my permission. Yes. Signed Epstein's mother. Yes, just go in. Some people got there. Yeah. Just go in the kitchen, pour yourself a big cup of Joe. And chill out. Yeah, delicious. I had an easy drive except I decided normally I sit in here and drink my coffee black, but I decided this morning I was going to bring some cream with me. Living on the wild side, craziness and my cream leaked all in my little front. Tummy pocket. It's kind of like having your own little fanny pack. My tummy pocket of my yeah, I noticed you're just going T-shirt this morning, showing off the guns. So I had to wash out the little, it's like a little kangaroo sack in the front of your it's like wussy quarterbacks, you can't handle the cold. So I had just a lap full of cream this morning. I was driving. I was like, wow, what happened here? I get excited to drive in the snow. Wait. So anyhow. I rolled over on the juice box. I had to get it in here and wash out. Otherwise, you just walk around like it's everything smells sour. And then it becomes if everywhere you go, it smells like sour milk. Maybe it's you. That's right. Variation on your famous line. Well, you had a interesting dinner last night. I guess passes for a little bit of breaking news on the Broncos coaching front. Well, I don't know, maybe it wasn't maybe it's not bringing news because if D Mac had his mystery candidate, he said there's a mystery candidate. You know, the D Mac is breaking news on mister candidate. And so then shortly thereafter, I'm listening to D Mac and wolf and a host of characters on the afternoon show. And I get it text. First one's phone call then attack. Hey man, I'm in town for one night interviewing tomorrow. Dinner or whatever. Linebacker coach Greg monsky, a former teammate of mine. So we went over to the Inverness had little dinner, but he's the interviewing for linebacker coach, which is which is interesting because there is no de coordinator right now. Yeah, normally the D coordinator would fill out those positions. But you're not, you haven't picked the D coordinator yet, so you're going through that, again, another veteran coach, guy who's been there, guy who's done a long menus has been, he's been all over the place coaching wise. Has he been a de coordinator? Oh, yeah. He was a decorator with. I believe with the Chargers with Indianapolis and with Washington, if I'm not mistaken. But yeah, he's been a decorator, but he's an interviewing for linebacker coach as far as I know. This morning. Well, see the mystery was he in the mystery candidate? I have no idea. But he's doing good. In case you were wondering, we played Washington together. He's my first roommate. No kidding. Yeah, yeah. Hey, he'd be a veteran at that time, or was he a rookie, too? Saying here, I think singing your guy. What would probably go into the Hall of Fame had it not been for the invention of the forward pass? It was just, it was just a run only Tebow league. Yeah. Yeah, he had a forehead made out of concrete reinforced with rebar. Reinforced. Yeah, absolutely steel plaguing his head. He could come downhill on you. He became like a legendary special teams player. Mister Cohen's joke around called hurricane mineski. Just running down hitting things. But yeah, I've covered cakes and all that stuff. So he played for like 12 years and only. So he's interviewing today for the linebackers coach. Yeah. Okay. Well, checking my close this morning, no mention of any other defensive coordinator candidates. So as of right now, we continue to go on the assumption that it's a pool that includes Rex Ryan Vance Joseph.

"Debris the horse and and watch him go through the motions from being a full of baby all the way to being a classic winner, and you made a very good point Sam about Rombauer, perhaps taking advantage of the pace in the Preakness, there was a very fast pace. Midnight Bourbon, the runner up the Derby winner Medina Spirit, the third place finisher, Those horses went very fast. Early in the pace continue to heat up from the half mile pole all the way into the stretch, and the fact that Rombauer to me was able to keep up with the pace heated up. That I think was key, because those two horses midnight bourbon, the Medina spirit look like they start to extend and try to get away from everybody and they got away from everybody. But Rombauer, who kept himself in the race Then he was able to wear down. The two horse is tired from the duel, So maybe he slightly took advantage of that. But I think the pace will be solid in the Belmont. With rock your world expected to get a better start. Hot Rod Charlie would be forward as well. We tell him with Dan Millman Daily racing form who covers of major races around the country, and also Southern California has a couple big races today. On and yesterday had a few aces, so and then then you wrap it up with a big Memorial Day on Monday holiday Was stick grace. So askew Look over this year's belt Watch. How do you see the 123? Try sector. Well, it's very early, obviously, before post positions are drawn on Tuesday. I think essential quality is a horse that has to be respected. I would use him and not exactly. I'm gonna give you three Sam. But let's box the trifecta Right now. I wanna wait for post positions and maybe the final workout. I think essential quality. I think, Rombauer. I think those two horses deserve consideration. How about rebels? Romance? The U. A Derby winner. Now the U. A. E. Derby has not Exactly been a very good prep at all for any of the Triple Crown races, But rebels romances of horses coming in fresh, he skipped the Kentucky Derby is a Godolphin home bread and I like the way you want the U a Derby knowing He's been at Belmont Park now for about a month. He has been training regularly there, and he looks pretty good. So rebels, romance is kind of my long shot playing there. I'm going to use him with Rombauer and essential quality and for right now, let's box him and stay tuned to B R FL eventually give you my top selection and speaking about The money junkie, Uh, rebels romance by like Smith. So you got some Hall of Fame junkies in the bell a lot on the Saturday Uh, take a look. But what else is going on? Said date this weekend. Uh, Mandy and today And pictures of us so much. Time Oaks is an interesting rates. You know, there's only a five force field. There are three strong contenders in there a lot of folks, we're going to be interested in playing suits say, who is undefeated for trainer Richard Mandella. I thought to say the perfect trip when she won her most recent start, I'm going to try to beat her with crazy, beautiful horse that ran in the Kentucky Oaks and let's be honest. Didn't run very well that day. I think this is class relief, certainly from the Kentucky Oaks and This five force field. We've seen Kenny McPeek ship to Southern California. In the past. I'm gonna go with crazy, beautiful to upend suit, Say in the Summertime oaks, and then you've got just a sensational card tomorrow. Sam On Memorial Day at Santa Anita. Three grade one stakes races. I kind of looking forward to the Hollywood Gold Cup. That's race Number eight and country grammar. The number two used to be with Chad Brown in New York. I'm familiar with him. He won the Peter Pan last year. He's always Kind of horse that needed distance needed maturity needed to grow up. Well, now he's four years old. This is going to be a second start of the year for Bob Baffert, and he's gonna get a chance to stretch out to a mile and a quarter. So I think country grammar is a chance to upset Favored Express train and the Hollywood Gold Cup tomorrow. All right, and I'm Monday, We also have a $400,000 race of Lone Star. The Steve Sexton State here gots and that one now in the Steve Sexton steaks. There's going to be a major scratch in there. By my standards. Likely the race favorite is going to scratch out of the Steve Sexton life. He's going to run in the Metropolitan Handicap on Belmont Stakes Saturday. With him out, the race favorite is likely to be C E Z Rock. It was turned into one of the better sprint. Is in the country for Peter Miller. Personally, I want to take a chance with the horse named Silver Prospector, the number one for trainer Steve asked me if I like this horse turning back in distance, who ran last time out of the Oaklawn handicapping made this big, wide run going a mile and an eighth from mid pack all the way to the lead, turning into the stretch and the flattened out. I think the mile and an eighth was a little far from he's gonna be a good price in the Steve Sexton Miles, so I want to give him a chance. Cze rocket the horse to beat Okay, Well, we'll be away for entry Day, which day of the week, but they're going to end her for the Belmont. They fell months takes draw on Tuesday. Not only the Belmont, several other stakes races, the Metropolitan Handicaps Acorn, the Manhattan on turf, you name it. They got it. Belmont on Saturday again, Let's keep our fingers crossed and what the weather is kind. All right, But we appreciate you being our first guest today. And, uh, give us a little thought about what's going on. Had Sandy that and later on, we're gonna be a handicap in with Larry Stubs of the San Francisco Chronicle turf writer on today's card at Golden Gate. So one of the final question. There's a new job come back to California to make his tactic a stack too. Said Nita and his name is Trevor. Uh, Trevor Chrissy, are you familiar with familiar? Oh, it's Trevor. I am very familiar with Trevor McCarthy. Trevor McCarthy has been based for many, many years in the mid Atlantic area riding at Laurel and Pimlico, and he is perennially the leading rider at those tracks. He is excellent. He kind of went to Belmont over and Aqueduct over the winter. He compiled a very good record there, I think forever is going to fit in. Very well in the Southern California jockey colony. He has a nice combination of patients. He could be aggressive on a speed horse. I hope the horseman give Trevor a chance because he's won a lot of races and this is a great opportunity for him to get on some nice sources. All right, well, have a good Sunday and we'll talk to you down the road because after the Belmont's over, people will be getting ready and thinking about Saratoga and Del Mar. Well, I appreciate it, Sam. Best of luck to your listeners today. Okay, Dan L'm another day evaluation form Got us out of the gate.

Ah, You know this drug in its system, which you know, we found out was the best method zone, which is a Stealing steroid, and it was basically put on in a lotion because of lack of a better word. Maybe the spirit had a rash in his time quarters, and it was put on Think within 24 hours of the Derby, so I would have to think wouldn't unit that test is going to come back? Positive? Exactly.

"We have two things going on there. Number one, of course, is just wagering inside of the park Place room, which is to the left Once you come inside the question of your temperature taken and you go inside the park place room that begins at noon today. And you could kind of hang out. You can get some barbecue from our home stretch grill and just kind of do whatever you need to do in terms of being able to make your wager inside that room, But we also have a party upstairs. $75 bill and you get $25 in free playback. Get a buffet. They get a $10 wager on the Preakness to get three drink tickets, and it's just kind of like our high end of party. So we're doing that as well. But we are accepting walking so That's what's going on. But it's part of the racist concerned, Brian, I've got to take. You know the number three and the number can both those horses were really good. They're probably gonna do with the front, so we'll see who gets the upper hand there. It's not uncommon to see a horse school wire to wire the Preakness, so We'll be looking at three intended the front. Usually the horses that race in the Derby often do well in the Preakness. 75% of the previous winners raced in the Derby. They may have won the Derby. They may have at least rates in that order, but 75% of all Preakness winners Have race in the Derby. Just previous to it. So you've got to keep keep me in mind keeping the night before he finished seventh in the Derby. And, of course, the number five midnight bourbon now midnight Bourbon had Mike Smith on his back in the Derby. The trainer didn't like the wishbone. Mike Smith rode him. So he switches over to Iran or teaches one of the hottest jockeys right now, as far as you know, kind of a long shot our new shooter here, I'm gonna look at the number four crowded trade you got Chad Brown has a great trainer. And, of course hobby are cock Delano, who You know, you never wanna bet against Castellanos. My friend says he's 10 to 1 and it just his fourth career start, but he was third in the Wood Memorial, and I think what's interesting about him is, you know, he just I think he's got what it takes to restock the lead and maybe just hit the board and 34. I'm not gonna use him on top, but I'll certainly using my Exactement. My tribe. Supers made a couple people, Brian that but the dollar Super and 1 $9000 at the epitome of downs for the for the Kentucky Derby there. And, of course, even if they make any sort of a change in Kentucky, unfortunate that will not take any changes for any betters. You know they would take away the title from him of being Derby winner. But it doesn't change the order of finish in terms of bets that were placed so excellent. Right, Right. Well, great information is always you can also hear the race and W g R as well. Later today if you can't catch it on NBC Appreciate it as always, and Ryan, thanks again for providing A prize this for our tee to Green Fantasy League.

Weekend Stakes Preview Presented by NYRA Bets
"The victory ride kicks off the stakes action here at Belmont Park tomorrow afternoon grade three early in the caught has just the feel of five phillies. GOING TO GO Six and a half furlongs as for the three year old's warning line favors one francs. Rock Cat Hall of Famer Bill Will Give Fellow Hall of Famer John Velazquez a leg up and this phillies done very little wrong on her career. She's three for seven. With four second-place finishes ran second in a couple of graded stakes, including the grade one spin away up at Saratoga last year last seen winning a third level allowance optional claimer. She uses stakes. Winner took the any limit kick off three year old season three starts back. and. Probably the only reason that this race isn't later in the card is that it's a five Horsfield and Franks? Rakhat is three to five on the morning line, and she may be the the loan speed in race, so she's going to be tough to beat at three to five, but that's a pretty short price, considering there some pretty good up and coming phillies near now I think number four center. I'll I'm going to give her another shot for. For Chad Brown and Joel Rosario Sheila Great Getting Her Maiden Win Gulfstream Park, when bet down to three to five at the end of March then came back in a tough allowance race at Churchill downs where she was really over bet, she was three to five that day against another very impressive maiden winner of this one for Steve Asmussen in casual casual ran a great race that day center I'll had all sorts of problems. She didn't break that well. She had trouble during the race, and she was just really never in at any point. I think it's a racy can kind of draw a line through? If she runs closer to the way she did and her debut. I think she's the one that could give Franks rock cat. The biggest problem Franks rocket will probably get the lead I would think Rosario would have center I'll sitting justin behind her and seeing if they can outgun into the line going six and a half furlongs. With you I'm going to take a shot with center. Rile planner. If? When I plan! Early took five tomorrow I will use both Franks rocket and center, but I'll tell you what I think. You can make a case also for up in smoke was undefeated and sprints. She's four five and a career. Lone blemish came when George Weaver tries to stretch her out Hollywood wildcat. Go at Gulfstream Park. She's raced exclusively of Gulfstream, in fact, steady diet once. Once a month February march April may June now. She gets a race in July. Here over Big Sandy, she wanted the game face overboard last time out for weaver Rod Ortiz Junior. Who wrote her in her debut against fellow Florida breads down at Gulfstream Park's in the climb back aboard for the first time. Since that day looks, you'll need a little help up front if Franks, rockets able to set an easy pace I. She's going to be very very tough. I think Senator I'll be the first one to come calling. Those are the two up in smoke. If you're looking to three deep, I don't think you need to center for Bobby and I race number three goes as the great three six and a half for a long victory ride go to the end of the card. Eleven race card like I said earlier, and the final four races make up an all stakes pick four, and it starts in reasoning with the greed three poker. Flat Mile on the turf for many years. This was the fourth of July staple. On the naira calendar here it is now as part of a super five stakes card. In, the poker though. On the widener, so they come out of that shoot. On the clubhouse turn we get a field of eight entered for the turf as a main track. Only it's all relevant with the way. The weather's been here. I would imagine you know there's supposed to be some rain. We're recording the show Friday afternoon supposed to be some rains rather day on Friday and into the evening. I can't imagine it enough to take this off the turf, so let's say it will be a field of eight.
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.
Jose Ortiz Interview - October
"Welcoming Jose Ortiz who is a native of Puerto Rico and his one more than nineteen hundred races in what has been just a a stellar career and that career still going strong and he's with me now here on H. R. N. Jose Good Morning My friend Mike give having yeah. Thanks for taking a little time. I know you're a busy working horses. This morning. Never ends does it does not if you want to be the best which right now you certainly are my friend Brendan. You know it's interesting. I mentioned being a native of Puerto Rico one of the jockeys who mentored you when you came here and one of the people that you looked up to is his hall of Famer Johnny Velazquez who last week set the record for most greatest stakes victories by jockey in the history of the sport and that has to make you very proud. I know that yeah yeah we are happy about it and it keeps going throwing you know hopefully he can give winning some more on winning out much again until you know until heater dyers what makes him so good then you got a lot of these. Atlanta for the sport and I think that having taken to the next level where he's been for awhile you know yeah he certainly he's been doing it for a long time and still doing it at a very high level. How many great stakes victories are you behind him now. I don't know I have made the way to go yeah one day well that win yesterday and the Phoenix was impressive. This is a horse. You've you've been on before you knew him. You get back aboard him yesterday and he's able to hold off Whitmore who was putting in that late run. Take me through the race Jose. Well we broke. We broke very good. expect expecting a much faster pace but they did in in came out of five dollars. I thought they would and I was able to be closer than I than I thought. I was going in two weeks so I think that well We have a very pain trip when I ask him to. Well what they're for me the whole time. You know he's a horse worse by intimacy if that when you were riding him last year and even this year at Saratoga he was trained by Chad Brown now he's trained by Steve Asmussen. Ah when you were riding him before he was always knocking on the door but he couldn't quite get past horses like promises fulfilled you yesterday you beat him and everybody everybody else. Is there a difference. Did you feel something different now with engage than you did last year. He always been a ah very nice or worse. I think some more mature before others on. I think he'd take a while but I think he finally figured out you know. Did you know that Moore was gaining on your yesterday. I didn't knew what Whitmore Kabaya fell somebody coming out. You can tell yeah I could yeah. Did you know you had enough left in the tank. He very game he always has been and I knew what GonNa try but you know something this all horrors you know he's just turned four so there's all live orders season and they are very good. You know they they come in. They coming at you like wait Marino. He's very nice or you know that win. In the Phoenix was part of a Multi Win Day on opening day of Keeneland then you you've had several days in your career where you've won multiple races like that. I asked you what makes John Velazquez so good. What makes Jose Ortiz so good. I don't let somebody out of that. Answer that question. I guess right to be myself on gave that horses the best chance to win but you also worked very hard I mentioned you're out working in horses this morning. I know you're being humble and and that's what's part of makes you part of. What makes you so good but Jose you work your tail off and put me the in in the saddle with you for minute if you will if I can use that term take me through like your routine in your approach to riding races. How do you get ready to go out there. Every day and ride was everything star on the when the overnight comes up so I have to see we shorts on on quantum there I go the R F and and they got the raises and I put him whatever I think they should be and you know I have to talk to a trainers on and follow their their instructions but at the same time I want to I want her to be relax and that's that's what I try to be happy and I think they control and relaxed. We'll give you a running the end of it yeah you know. Johnny will always tell tell me about his different plans that he has going into the starting gate the plan a plan b the Plan C. and you hope you don't have to get any further than that but once the gates open you can listen to the trainers instructions all day long but once the gates open things can change quickly right very quickly. What do you you do at that point. Do you say Oh my God. I gotTa follow his instructions or do you say I just gotTa. Let my instincts takeover in and try to ride this race the way it needs to be ridden now so you've got to let your instincts they over because it's very tough to execute a plan when their plan doesn't work from from the gate you know. Yep You gotta change everything so I think you just gotTa Julia uh-huh. Yeah everything you could do everything changes in and you just have to adjust and that's why I've always said you know jockeys in terms of there's always that debate are jockeys true athletes athletes and I think you know I've said for years but pound for pound jockeys the most gifted athletes that we find in all sports and I have no doubt about it and you're certainly right there Jose. Let's talk about the horses that you're going to be aboard today. You're in all of the great stakes races at keeneland which is to be expected matter of fact.

That's is the first greatest stakes today. What can you tell me about. Extravagant kid very nice hard. I had the opportunity to ride him. One time before and we won he's doing very good very fox. Horse doesn't need to be on the late which is very helpful full on way like junkets. Today we think is very life so right to win all right and then in the next race in the TC a talked to me and I think I'm saying that name correctly but talk to me the horse. You're going to be aboard there. You've been aboard her. The the last two starts second last time out in the Press Kyle downes master stakes on September sixteenth. Tell me a little bit about her. It's very nice to write very easy last time. She has run very very very good. we are expecting seeming to or better than last two times.

What do you know about her. I won on her Kentucky Down She got some sleep but he's he's also stayed on the race so let's see how they're they're in writing about her because she he doesn't need elite. Also g come come on.
