But i'm saying i don't i don't understand why they can't totally jockeys stopping stores. He doesn't like it. He hates it so i really don't know how good the source i think. He's i think he's a good he's got you know he's got a pedigree and you know he's he moves well. I like the way he moves off. Resources go actually you know midnight. Bourbon looks like a quintessential Distance source to me and he's bite tastes now and just like he's again he's got a very efficient stride very light on his feet. And you could see when he's not backtrack backtracking. He's got his ear brick. Nobody's gonna catch the sports. You know a little bit too much class last year and he just looks like he just looks like a good awards energy half brother to govern to one to one school. So he's got the pedigree and i it. It's hard to know what to make of it. I mean he finished nine lengths ahead of the third horse so you know the dominates the rest of the field. I think they're all three good horses very hard to separate right now so again. I don't know what to do proxy. Because of the fact that i just wanna see shawn can do. You can run straight down the racetrack mean you just you watch him. He's hitting him left-handed watching stop the wannabe hit. He wants about in the middle of the track if he had any chance. That that costume and it hurt Hurt mental on because you get drunk driving him out father after the middle of the track himself so again. Just.

She was bred to be a nice source. And it's getting. The clock is ticking as they say so she is making a five year old debut. I do have to. I gotta ask you one question because You know a lot about the mingo check altana. Yeah it's funny because you'll see Usually you'll see when they come on the post raid. You'll see domingo's capanna Trainer owner jockey. They are related. But you'll you'll you'll see the name and you don't see the senior the junior you just see the the the same name three times but But you will bingo chocolate quite a bit. And like i say nightcaps were they win races when they when they tear up me they combo up. It's usually in the last i the day. And it's usually on some of these types of speed types and you'll pop them at a price you know for for ninety eight and twenty and writing for this outfit and you know they're gonna they're gonna ride together so that would be my my My analysis of of that name as the top name to say when domingo shackled tana's is rolling down the stretch similar price during the meat.

"My top choice. nice the other who are at six to one. That feels like a bee in ear is writer. Rocket broke his maiden back in november as late. Four year old. This is a need do by that As a home-bred another louisiana bread at broke the maiden for twenty and brent davidson tried them in a couple of fairly aggressive spots did not run against allowance company at remington and now trump's back into medan below the level of his of his maiden breaker and so right a rocket From a you know if you're if you're a class evaluation type I would take a look at Six to one as well. And i mentioned earlier valiant appeal first time for danny pysche again not ever because pysche had The horse Last spring at both Sam houston and it will rogers and then how the year gonzales ended up with him for a while at south florida and now comes back to pitch so like i said the exactly exactly and ran. Okay at a at what i you know would probably is about an equivalent level. Actually even frankly twelve five nine two at gulfstream in december might even be the know. Just a scoot sh Tougher than than this. There's there's a lot of fun things chris. In this race regarding class levels like for instance you mentioned audette blizzard. Who's coming out of state bread. Allowance company a delta. So you get a a real malaj of of horseflesh in here from you know from a variety of places and Trying to you know trying to make sense of of you. Know the the mix and match of conditions. It's kinda makes the the the handicapping and the play a lot of fun.

"Back. Effort has taken a lot of money in the last. Three starts in just hasn't responded But the eight. Carlos sixes looks looks tough. It's just kind of how to evaluates as the drop down to the five thousand dollar level They claim the horse repent thousand broberg. And then the horses running allowance events last two times. Let's taking money both of those times and just hasn't gotten it done so Maybe this is the spot. Like i say they drop and they just want somebody to claim the horse away But i think it's pretty tough here in race number. The question for him to me is. Where's the speed going to come from exactly to you. Know to set up what what feels like you know an on off the pace style and i there's not a lot of speed. Ap's bluegrass. For steve williams. I guess is is candidate. Celestial cowboy for fincher is coming out of a six and a half at zia in december First time for for todd fincher in here. But that one's got some speed I guess wits dollar night Has shown speed the that to me. That's part of the equation in here. Because i don't in looking at a couple of different measurements. Carlos sixes is not appreciably faster than then quite a few in here Y- there's there's that race three back when he got claimed but I'm looking at at thermographic figures for this group and there's a bunch that are just as fast as his last pair. So you know you're a bad guy His last two formidable force Is running the same kinds of numbers Ap's bluegrass is faster. Frankly so i i. I thought there were a couple of reasons to be to be suspect about the favorite In.

"Take a look in the last few efforts from age as grants Like you say two to one has run at the five thousand dollar level third beaten eight lengths last time But there were some return winners at that rate so that might have been a better rate. The number six high-class euro. As you say steve. William soon comes out of those sacred events. Now in open company i'd like to eight undivided right to the outside of them can kind of take a look at both of those favorites. The numbers seemed like it's right there on par with the six and the seven. Amanda barton and henry wit junior. You know you've seen his name. Dt he's won quite a few races. Since i've been here saying peterson race park and he usually doesn't add some value so Or nestle valdez. Him as board It was just an okay effort last time out. But you go to back before that. A second by head. Second beaten three quarter. They claim this runner. And then also. The horses bennett. Distant sixteen times with three wins four seconds in a third so eight times into the trifecta at sixteen and april one again. Let's let's let's go price shopping a little bit. Let's take a take a shot here early on in the especially with the six year old mayor by device parts the outside just seems like the number eight foot give you some bit a bit of a thrill here in their spotted at the one price pretty wide open race. I i felt like it just seems like a lot of different things. Some of these favorites. The i dunno i. I'd be careful here for three. Three four on the six Thirty second and a fifth on the seven. I don't know it's interesting that you thought that way. Because i kind of felt like i had a little bit a little bit more spread.

"I saw kevin shoals crazy numbers dirt to turf. He's five his last eleven over the last eighteen months. You're talking me into it. It's one to add other ticket. Twenty two one to one kicks off the pick. Six and the numbers are there so The horses done nothing wrong. You know anytime. They win at a little bit of a price like that. I think you know there's some ability there just weren't on the board and you're going right back to the twenty one shot first time turf. The numbers of their like you say It's a good long shot to have. You could be right and jessica paquet. We talked about her. She she likes the number four generators she felt like there was a ton of turf pedigree in there at the one offering value. So rates number five looks like you can go a lot of different directions as we are right now and I'll side with the three but you you might be talking into the thick to throw that one on some tickets for now. I'm glad you and i'm glad you talked about women vigour because at least he's got turf experience his second career start which doesn't look like much on on paper and forty seven buyer and forth but he was only beating the length and it was too turns and then subsequently larry stroup has been running him a mile so this is a horse. That's been around for repeatedly and that's going to give him an advantage over some in here that are going to be negotiating terms for the first time and a bunch that are going to be trying the grass. So there's a lot going on in this opening leg and We'll see if there's anything that the board at least this race considering to me it's the toughest of the sequence. At least you'll get a read Maybe the board helps us a little bit when we're making our final decisions. The second leg is a straight second level allowance going a mile on the main track and You've got a couple of horses. I thought that you know that were very obvious. there might even be people on budgets that are going to try to single vice versa. Yeah i kind of went away from that. I for some reason. I just wasn't. I looked at vice versa has won three in a row. last time was at that optional. Fifteen one five thirteen lifetime. Four eight and twenty twenty. Everything says this horse is an absolute standout in here but there was just something that just wasn't really clicking for me here in this spot. Looks like a.

"I call and he's named on a lot of favorites and we'll be in some spots and stored elliott as you say you know he'll. He'll continue to be very consistent successful unless he's trying to get in the mix and just a lot of new names and faces some real opportunities and some nice field sizes and Just keep everybody safe and get them around there. But they They've got some real chances here in in the doctor to really make a name for themselves. I'm also noting Looks like As many as fourteen looks like in twenty races you had fourteen different training outfits score winds already so a little bit of everybody Getting into the act and going and today the the new version of the space city pick six gets going fifty percent increment. I kind of Was was sorta free associating a little bit about the increment In here chris because it is it's going to be interesting it it's it's enough to inhibit People from pushing the all button. The willy nilly But it's i. It's slow enough that you could craft some reasonable approaches to the sequence and so i'm anxious to see you know how people take to the fifty cent increment and you know the the twelve percent is incredibly generous for players But certainly when you look at this sequence it starts in the fifth she'll go off at Six fifty six eastern 556 central I thought this was a very difficult place to start. The the the pick six of a lot of is going to the turf for the first time. You got ton of stretch outs. And i i really struggled to you know. Get a grasp on on who the the obvious candidates were. I did find a twenty to one shot. Though that i'm i'm kind of interested in in here. Texas boy talk a little bit about what you think. We should expect in the fifth. Yeah number five. The number seven lived king five to two in the morning line and then run marquette picks. Take over here. And the first comes from monmouth park With odds on one by back Actually called that race at mom park with lizard king when i was over there but the the number seven. I don't know i. I think too short of a price in here. It doesn't look like a single. The number six texas bad boy. You've probably seen some terrible in the pedigree and that was an impressive I doubt effort. Four in the turn strong drivers and those say and you're getting a big crisis. Twenty two one and kevin scholla when some races here during during the meat. And and you know that outfit like you say fourteen different outfits different barnes He'll get on the mic but the number three women bigger who. I went with an eight to one in the morning line. You know the one time. This horse tried turf was at remington park. As a seven and a half long distance was the favorites that day and was fourth beaten. A length then came back. Got back on the dirt and won by two lengths. You know the last effort was a springboard mile beat nineteen and a half lengths.

"You know. I was already interested because i was looking for somebody that might come from off the pace. The aspect of this is kevin shoals glaring numbers going to the turf. He's three for four. The last eighteen months going. I the first turf of any kind and overall dirt tariff. He's five eleven both obviously with with garish our allies so this is texas bad boy. Twenty two one in the first leg and after that after you get out of this first leg it gets. I think a little bit more approachable but the first leg is is a monster. Second-leg you're gonna look at it. There's actually a couple of horses in here. You're going to be familiar. With including steve asmussen with rotation. And been you know back for his five year old debut and vice versa claimed from acid by doro. Who's a nice horses one. Five times that those are seemingly the two that you're going to focus on dreams of valor. Seems like he's got a shot the veteran so you know that. That's reasonable enough The third leg nickel Dated claim nine winners To since july. And you know here. I thought you know. The two favorites made a lot of sense. In fact i imagined some people will consider singling depending on your budget. Aj's grant in here. The seven eighth is a little tricky eighth kind of want to see if anybody came out of there. And then the ninth and tenth and ninth know feels like there's three to four horses i went. I got one five six seven noted and then in the nightcap. I thought it came down to you. Know obviously the four to five favorite is going to be a heavy lean egypt princess for asmussen making a first start for asmussen. Moving over from brendon walsh. So i'm anxious to hear what what chris's thoughts are all right. So we'll go through the sam houston action with you about half an hour a little less give or take. I mentioned the. I mentioned the piece of news from california and this is a this is a nice development. What transpired here is essentially a re not a reimagining but a tinkering with the the structure of the eighty w. contracts with the and essentially it amounts to a significant and vital frankly boost to the personal accounts for southern california and they expect that as it stands right now with tv g. Del mar strana group together. It'll mean about fifteen million into purses over the next two years there's that you'll recall that Late last year The analysis that was The analysis that pandemic habit it in practice and essentially you know racetrack on racetrack revenue Put a almost a twenty percent dent into personal account contributions. So this effort to renegotiate the you know. The percentages essentially Will help offset that loss. And it should be noted that santa anita has already had a ten percent across the board person increase based on early handle numbers. So things you know the definitely a shot in the arm and help on that topic makes it a little makes it a little easier anyway tomorrow. We'll probably you probably get more on this.

For his second start and the fairgrounds road to the fairgrounds oaks and louisiana derby underway. And i know. I've been saying all week that you know that's gonna be the focus the biggest focus but that that that's I was not premature about it. But you know granted it's got the big rated stakes louisiana lecomte and then the rest of the undercard. But there's there's really good sequence at laurel for for example with the strong winter carnival as it were they've got six stakes over half a million and it's time at At tampa pasco the gasparilla and what the what's the third the older horse. There's also the older. There's always the older one. The wayward lass as well you've got regional strong regional action. California has got i. there is of course yesterday's contract the news person news which will get to They've got the calcutta ish day. I say ish because there's a little bit of everything this is. Is that point on the calendar where we used to have we used to have the alternating sunshine millions stuff so then then the cup kind of augmented when when the thing kind of split apart and you've got sunshine million raises down at gulfstream full-fledged calabria day at santa anita there's a little everything nice card as well at put together for act r race that we're in the maiden special for state brits going to mile split actually into two divisions and and so forth plenty to plenty to keep us occupied and looking ahead to. We can preview tomorrow. I'll give you a couple of highlights from from what was drawn yesterday. And course the fairgrounds fairground stuff and they've had days to a peru's speaking of fairgrounds quick. I'll give you a quick aside because Something bubble to the surface. That got me again. One of the things. I i was doing in the last the hour hour and a half tomorrow. There's a maiden special for three year old fillies. And as i'm going through this group to group of ten and it's i guess led by the bret. Calhoun warfront philly. Although this is on the main and a very interesting that calhoun is avoided the grass with the peacebroker warfront out of a module bear and making a fourth start on dirt. So they're doing everything they can to prove her out as a as a dirt horse i suppose they could always moved to the grass once they exhaust if they exhaust that aspect of her and she's run well on the run. Okay on the dirt. Let's say that she's been second third and fourth in three starts but what caught my in here. There's also the tap it Philly out of hot. Dixie chick for steve asmussen and and barbara banke pauline pearl. Making a second start ran okay In december in her debut disappointed as the favorite Seems to eventually you know probably better start but no the horse that caught my eye is a horse for merrill share and third start for de. Frost is a horse. That merrill owns with dan lynch and i mentioned Was late last week or might even been already this week that we wanted to get an update. So i reached out to gary shearer and gary's handling you know these sources for for merrill while he continues to recover from the stroke and he is home. The good news is that he's home. Gary says that he's he's doing better and he's taken calls he said The if you want if you know if you've been hesitating to friends far flung friends throughout the game of merrill he's home and you can reach him so if you have been holding off calling and checking in with the great meryl shearer you. Can you got the green light from gary. And i'm sure everybody will be thrilled to hear him at the least send e he never. He never was a great texter to be honest. But you can You know he would. He would respond with a couple of words whenever whatever you tried to tomorrow but that was good. News and certainly. Here's della frost making a third. Start a frosted philly that maryland. Dan lynch paid forty. Seven thousand. four is a two year old out of a kittens. Joy is another one. That probably wouldn't mind the grass if need be she debuted on the grass actually so going short then made a slight improvement in her. Second start so anyway. That jumped off the page of me. I wanted to check in a couple things about today. And of course it's thursday so you've got some tony black. You got your steve asking. You got your reaching. And we'll slip. Seth into second week in a row. Actually the third wednesday got little little oversized and of course yesterday's show and programming but essentially Taken over by the the passing of prince colleague and been so mitts. Amazing actually if you scour the the internet any of the race media here and abroad. There's some really already been. I mean it's it's two days and there's already been some really go interesting reaction in terms of delving into.
