He is with me. Live from california. Jay good morning. good morning. Happy to be able to look back on that special day with you. I wanna i wanna start this way. Jay chris mccarron was with me a while back and he shared his thoughts on what that moment was like being back at belmont park six weeks after the attacks. And here's what he had to say. That i'd love to hear your thoughts on what it was like for you. Here's what chris had to say. There was a lot of tension in the air. Obviously one of the most vivid recollections. I have is before the races began. They had all the jockeys get dressed up in their colors that they're going to be using for the day the owners colors and we paraded from the jockey's room down through the tunnel at delmonte park in across the track onto the turf course and we were all carrying american flags. Little little american flags and we all had hats on that either said f. d. n. y. or nypd to salute the frontline heroes of the tragedy. And as we got across onto the turf course and turned around looked up at the grandstand and for the link the whole length of the belmont grant in which we all know is enormous about every fifty yards or so. There was a soldier with a with a rifle Snipers if you will and that was a very alarming view. And i i'll never forget it still vivid in my in my mind now and we all knew the gravity of the situation. How serious everything was But that that vivid memory is Will forever be etched in my mind. That's how my day started off and fortunately because the great heart to snow has He finished the day off for his really well o. j. We've heard it several times throughout the program. I played the call of tis now winning tom. Durken's call tis now winds up for america. It is time it is a day that none of us will ever forget And certainly that breeders cup win by tis. Now was something that that was much needed. And what an effort that was that day. Yeah he he rose to the occasion day. Do you remember the day in a similar fashion. That chris does. Yeah i was back into buying the most of the time. I didn't see the jockeys parade and then I saw pictures of the troops up on the grandstand and But i didn't see when before prior to the first raise. I remember there was talk that maybe the breeders cup shouldn't be run after what had occurred six two at the time this occurred. I maybe granted won't run breeders cup. Just shows the resilience you new york. I think that they went on with the show. And it's probably something that aided in recovery. I would say so. What was it like for you. J. coming there with a horse like tis now after what had happened six weeks earlier. What what was the mood like. What was your mindset. take me there with you. Well when he worked two days before we shipped to me were reluctant to work finally decided it was time for them to work and I didn't know how he reacted got to new york push. They answer was a rough day and training morning. Just wanna go and he finally got him around the track. John three miles. Finally 'cause i became on set with him then following that day he sheldon really nicely did well the the rest of the week and we got our confidence back that he perform. Well what about going to new york. What what was that. Experience like it I'd been there with worsening plan. Cutting owners nameless gadgets years past and i i always loved going into your love the backside of them one part which unlike any we have out here. I love the history of racing in new york and I was glad to go back there again. Stay in the garden. City hotel was the mood a little different this time than it had been in the past well. I didn't notice it so much on the backside. Yeah i do go out anywhere backside. Yeah you know that was such a star-studded field to of course sake and that battle down the stretch but you had macho uno you had galileo. Who is in their aptitude orientate. There were big names in that race. Yeah it was one of the strongest fields from a standpoint of grade. One group one winners was very contentious. Field tell me about watching that stretch battle and and sake can it like he may be head. Tis now put away. But he battled back. Tell me about that to be honest. I wasn't even certainly one photo heard dumb erkin and say he won't for american judy muller caroline standing next to me on he wanted but i wasn't certain watching it. Yeah was an extra sets of pride on your part knowing that you had almost like a ryder cup type of feel where you had won it for for the united states and for america well yes and He'd had a tough year compared to the previous year. Previous years is three of the was a piece of cake doubt. He went to a lot of issues as a four year old. I was really proud of for -ccomplish. Finally what would that be your favorite tis now moment or was there another moment that stands out to you. Have on the racetrack. That probably would have been the that my taylor alone. There are a lot of other moments away from the racetrack.

"Version when you have that discussion but i respect both of your opinions on a nationwide basis and you know when they look toward the hall of fame and items like that. Do they ever consider somebody like that. You know russell vases in but you know little guys like david or they ever given any consideration or is it simply didn't win a breeders cup race and getting win a great wants. You didn't win anything like that Probably that looked at. I'll start with this and tom. Thanks for your call. you know. First of all starting with russell baze. Even though the northern california circuit pales in comparison to the southern california circuit it's a far bigger circuit than that at the that fairmount park and russell baze at was the leading rider of all time. So i don't think there's any way you can keep him out of the hall of fame. And of course he won several stakes as well and he won in southern california. But i think david gall one hundred percent should be in the hall of fame and it's unfortunate that he's kind of being held out of it because of where he wrote. Let's face it fairmount park which is now fan. Duel sportsbook in horse racing and cahokia. Downs are not the billboard names of racetracks goal was a leading rider by wins several years in the late seventies early eighties as far as nationwide as you mentioned he's the fifth all-time leading rider. I don't think it should be held against him. The fact that he rode at the smaller racetrack somewhat the same way. It shouldn't be held against a player. Because they play for the colorado rockies and the ball travel so well in colorado know. I it is what it is. The stats are the stats. The guy was obviously a very very good writer and he was far and away the best writer on that circuit for many many years. He is nationally top five all time. I don't see how you keep him out of the hall of fame and the truth is who probably will never get in. Let me ask you this question. Bobby is perry route a hall of famer. Yes so perry should be in the hall of fame two. Yes okay so perry is number six all time. David gall wants seven thousand three hundred ninety six races. Perry utes is currently and by the way still active. Seven thousand two hundred and four career. Wins david gall. I think the one thing that people will look at and is kind of. This is a very similar situation. Bobby i get a vote for the eclipse award's every year. And they send you the information and i refuse to put in votes just based on popularity okay. I don't want to be a popularity contest. And sometimes that happens but you tend to gravitate toward the bigger names when you're voting on a category like leading breeder or leading trainer or leading owner. Whatever it might be. And i think it's important that you try to weigh the quality of the victories against the quantity of the victories that an individual or an organization had in a specific year when you're voting for for something like the eclipse awards. This is similar. Where david gall. Yes number five all time. A number of wins his only win in a stakes race. Greatest stakes race was in nineteen ninety-three which was the fairmount derby. That was his only one. And i think that that is the factor. That's the one thing people will look at when they're thinking about the hall of fame they're going to say listen yeah. He won a lot of races but they were a lot of low level races. And i don't know how you hold that against a guy because you went a lot of races you win a lot of races. He won the fifth most races in the history of thoroughbred racing. You think about the jockeys that are behind him. Chris mccarron edgar prado angel. Cordero junior all hall of famers. Sandy hawley eddie. Delahoussaye i mean i could go on and on. He won more racist than all of those guys. But i think what people look at is quality over quantity and boy. I don't know. I mean you win that many races. You're doing something right. You are elite elite. You deserve to be in the hall of fame. I can only tell you this. Mike as somebody who grew up in southern california and did not get to see a lot of fairmount park racing. Let's face it. They didn't have a lot of races. That were worthy of being on national broadcasts. You know they were never on down the stretch with sharon smith author or any chris lincoln and the folks would cover but anytime you would see them like if we went to las vegas and it was a tuesday when fairmount and only a few other places running. You saw the name david goal and he wrote every favorite at at fairmount. And you say well. That's why he wants so many races. Well is it the chicken or the egg that comes first. Is he riding all the favorites. Because he's foreign away the best writer there or is he the best writer there because he rides all the favorites. I think he's writing the favorites because the case with the favorites. Wanna put him on the horses and the same way with russell baze. Let let me ask you this. Let me ask you this do you. View mario pino. When i say that i have to look at those stats. I don't have them in front of me. I'll give so david goal. I mentioned the one greatest stakes win perry number six. All time wins. He has never won a greatest stakes race in his career. But he's number six all time. In wins mario. Pino number ten on the winds list. All time. he's still riding. He can add to that total he trails angel cordero junior. Who is ahead of him. He has seven thousand. Fifty seven wins. Mario pino six thousand nine sixty nine. Currently mario pino has won a lot of great steaks. Remember he wrote hard spun and there were other great horses that he wrote but he has won a lot of great steaks. He's number ten all time. I think if anybody is going to eventually have a case to get into the hall of fame among riders. That aren't already. They're in the top ten. It's going to be mario. Pino while i'm going to go even further. I think i misspoke earlier. When i said that unfortunately david gall will probably never get in. I actually think he will get in and because there always seems to be a historical category every year. There's somebody on the ballot or there's somebody who gets in and it's not just horse racing. It's every sport where you you know. The the veterans committee voted. Or the whatever. And it's some jockey from seventy eight years ago or a trainer from one hundred and thirty years ago that let's face it you and i don't know off the top of our heads and i think somewhere down the line. That's how david gall could get into the hall of fame. I mean how many let's put it this way. How many years have to go by where he's a top where he's top five time where somebody doesn't just say. How is this guy not in the hall of fame. All he's been top five for forty years or not yet. It hasn't been forty years. But you know what i'm saying. It happens in other sports to look at the nfl. You have a guy like vinny testaverde right. He's what top ten a top ten quarterback in terms of his statistics. But he can't get into the hall of fame. So there you know i think we put a premium on the quality victories. That people have in their career. When you're talking about something like the hall of fame by the way whenever you say the name vinny testaverde. I had a friend growing up. Who for some reason kept calling him. Nick torture telly. And i said no. That's that's carlos boyfriend from the show cheers. That's not the quarterback who's playing in the nfl. All right let's get back to racing. We'll get back to the phones. Jeff in louisville welcome to the net dot com call and show. You're talking to mike in.

"Was a steward for twenty years. And and you just think that someone that can be a major influence in the sport at a area that he was in that area because of his family and because you know he didn't travel out and didn't maybe have all the big horses to go follow around but wrote a menu. Nice source but you. You wonder if just because of his influence in racing in that area and what he brought to the table you know like i said credibility respect integrity and mentored many a young rider. Riders were highly successful. I mean chris mccarron and they used him as an example when he was riding in the seventies bill. We'd been riding since forty eight. He was an old writer that you watch and And maybe maybe it'll go someplace. And maybe not. But i had to bring it up because the more i thought about it. I thought about my uncles in the national hall of fame and he wrote in the forty eight to like nineteen eighteen. nineteen years. You know never won a triple crown race but Road nice horses and he was a mainstay rider in an influence in jersey and florida in the winter time but stayed in this area almost of the year because my uncle's family lived right around the corner from me and only time they would go to the when gray racing closed guards say in the fall he would go to florida for a few months and you know what he take the kids out of school and he would take them to florida for a few months and then they would finish school In florida and they would start school back up in awe in jersey. You know so it was. He did travel a little bit but it was only between jersey and florida. Pass more one thing about it. You could stay in maryland and be blow buoy pimlico and raise year round. Never be within driving distance of only one of the racetrax the girls and his wife him Stayed married raise the daughters which that that's a heck of a job raising girls. i think. Sometimes i think that must be harder to raise employs. Unless you've voice named tony black. That might have been a touch. Well you know. And and just kind of i just wanted to look and see Some of his biggest wins. And and you can. You can see that The the maryland Kind of Kind of When it comes to the graded stakes But you know the the actually the one of the people that one of the trainers that he wrote for regularly in the late in the later in his career was was king leather berry and king king got into the hall without You know without the benefit of of countless graded stake wins Ah you know he he might be. Larry might be a very good of parallel. Actually you know. Some of the stakes. One weren't great at the time like he wanted to ride. Derby an eighty three one to john. Campbell in seventy two. I did some research on a new show as a personal blackburn. It's fine but you know i. I mean he won the would loan steak. The top light in wrote some of the you know dixieland band. Shores of blues forces of that caliber major stays on them Like you say maybe somebody's raises. The stakes weren't Great at the time eventually were and maybe he wasn't a guy that traveled to new york and all over the countryside california. You know with a he wrote thirty. Eight years in his reputation was as important as performance on the race. Track one over thirty five hundred races. But i had to bring it up. You know i was just it. Just got my attention. When i was talking to people and we were at my uncle's Absolutely absolutely and. I know i'm.

"Of thoroughbred racing. That's having a horse in the kentucky derby. Tell me about that experience with your classmates from brown university. It was a pinch me experience. We kept saying you can't make this stuff up. You know walking the track From the barn area into the paddock. And i certainly was lucky enough to do that. In two thousand twelve or two thousand sixteen but to do it with my best friends in the world and bridge that with my family and the sport of kings and queens that i grew up in and to have one hundred sixty of our best friends and family flock all over churchill downs. Which is the pantheon. you know horse racing. It was absolutely surreal. You know i'm getting chills thinking about it I said this before. We won that race. Well before those gates have opened in the fact that charlie ranch heart out and You know he gave it his all and we had a chance at the top of the stretch. You know that's all you can ask for. You came home safe and You know we live to fight another day so it was. You know i'm not married. I don't have kids yet. So it's certainly for me was probably the best moment in my life. Yeah he had a chance. Throughout much of the stretch he battled gamely all the way to the finish of that kentucky. Derby complete this sentence for me patrick. If hot rod charlie would cross the finish line first in the belmont stakes it would be surreal. It would be a dream come true it would be one of those things where you your head hits the pillow every night. You think you know. This is what i would like. This is my desires but you never think that those things actually happen and to just all i can think about. Is you know all right. Charlie being safe after the race you know proud. He's such a personality hugging hugging dennis hugging. You know my cousins. Their children hugging my mom and dad and hugging my best friends in the world and all of their networks. It would be absolutely surreal. He has been walking around with a blanket. The past couple of weeks or so that has had the south carolina gamecocks logo on at the university of south carolina. Tell me about that story. Yeah I give all the credit in the world to you know doug o'neill my uncle. Obviously he you know he does. He's in the sport for all the right reasons. He understands that these types of moments type horses are fleeting. And you know. He befriended Mr stephen paine issue runs america's best racing Couple of years ago when he had a string of horses at belmont and unfortunately He had his son passed away in a horrible car accident. And i believe in twenty twenty and I can't even imagine you know. I love my parents to death. I don't have kids but to lose your son lose your daughter. That's gotta be the worst feeling in the absolute world and everything we've heard about steven kid jake. Pay as he was the light of the earth yet energy spirit. He had a type of leadership that you don't have when you're you know fifteen years of age. And so you know stephen and doug we're talking and the other day right before the derby and just talking about. How can we bring awareness to stephen scholarship organization which is called the jake pan walk on endowment scholarship Jake really really wanted to play football at the university of south carolina like his father. And you know doug gave him a call and said hey. I think i have an idea. We have this amazing horse that might have Potential one really anything at that point but if something crazy happens we win the louisiana derby we'd love to commemorate and do everything we can with kind of this unexpected notoriety with hot rod charlie. And it's all been downhill from there so hot rod. Charlie's running for jake tennis walk on doubt football scholarship and just honoring who that individual was the spirit he's brought and you know he certainly on hot rod charlie's back and you know we've had this undeserved almost unexpected experience to give back in any way to something. That's bigger than hot rod. Charlie bigger than built racing those see bigger than team. O'neill bigger than horse. Racing altogether is just something that means a lot to us. So we thinking about jake every day and he's certainly there with us in spirit. That's a wonderful story and really would love to see a hot rod. Charlie get it done for jake paneth's for the family of jake panasonic for the team surrounding him including patrick o'neal who is with me now here on the horse racing radio network patrick. He also got a visit earlier. This week from hall of fame jockey. Chris mccarron who hopped aboard his pony lava. Man all famer yet to hall of famer stopped by visit. Hot rod charlie. That was cool to unbelievable unbelievable. I was just talking to. Chris and i looked up to him. I always think about the riot he gave his now. The breeders cup classic here belmont park and then certainly winning against giant's causeway at churchill downs. And so just to be breathing. The same air as chris to be talking about hot rod charlie who he says obviously has a big chance it was a surreal moment to connect him with lava men who talking about. Wow this horse is the more inside the now. No absolute goliath a horse. It was just very very surreal and is the light of their and certainly it can't hurt to have more successful people around hot rod charlie Light chris mccarron and certainly like Hall of famer robin so we got good company. We're in good company. Like lava man will accompany hot rod. Charlie to the post again today right. You won't be you will be at every time. That guy goes to the track i do. I keep thinks he's running It's a negative thing. Coaching hot rod. Charlie but it's super funny. Every time you put attack on lawman i think It's feels like he's running in that. Two thousand five gold cup again patrick. It's a it's an amazing story. I hope the ride continues later this afternoon. All the best with hot rod. Charlie in for having a really really appreciate. It have a great day for appreciate the visit. My friend patrick. O'neal here on the horse racing radio network this week's industry star the week and you can see.

"You know I'd say I. It's not really America's pastime the sport of King There aren't many teams. There used to be. There's no It it's an interesting industry where the entire enterprise is still specifically around the animal ores and without that. It wouldn't really have much of one so the problem that we have in the US is drugging and medication of us is very rampant. And it's something that is causing of many horses across the US. They don't have these problems near as badly around the rest of the world and Great Britain Australia Australia other countries and only the US and Canada allow for drugs to be used on race days. So it's perfectly legal for a multitude of performance unhandy drugs for pain masking agents and other things to be utilized and what the horse racing integrity act which is hr seventeen fifty if people were in the US House of Representative and tests eighteen twenty in the US Senate Lead by two Congressmen who represent districts. Tricks that are two of the primary districts in American horse racing in Saratoga New York and Andy Barr Represent Lexington Kentucky. The horse stackable of the world may refer to it so That's your senators senator. Gillibrand from New York and Senator Mix tally mark McDowell Republicans from Arizona Zona and what the legislation would do is. It would first and foremost ban the use of drugs on race day so we would be on even keel with the the rest of the world is the legislation passed and became law and it would also grant the authority to do all of the drug testing and to make all the rules and create traded uniform national standard to you saw which is the US Anti Doping Agency that oversees the Olympics. They caught Lynn Foam strong and really have the credibility not only in the US but around the world so we wanna see drugging in and we believe that it will in the number of those deaths because the different is about two point five times higher in the US first world so the is the end. Game no dragging of the horses or no horse racing At all what's the What's what's the final outcome in? Your best worldview. Well what we're out due to end the doping in India abuse horse racing anything. We don't oppose horse racing. There are a lot of people who do though and the sentiment against horseracing is growing on a daily basis I get more and more calls from advocates each today. That are saying if they don't get their act together soon. We're going to start protesting them and start working to end horse racing rather than just end up being horse racing so the clock is ticking.

"Talk show sports byline USA. Here's Ron Bar. Gary Stevens is with us the hall of Fame Jockey and after twenty six years in the saddle. He has decided to retire. But if you look at his resume eight triple Crown Victories Three Kentucky Derby Two preakness wins in three Belmont victories and he was the youngest rider surpass a hundred million dollars in earnings and usually when somebody decides to retire. It's on the motivation of a friend or family member but when you retired Gary You said that when rock hard ten decided to retire and that's a horse for most people out there. That's that's it he's retiring I'm retiring. What was it that motivated you to do it with retirement of rock-hard then well I've been contemplating retirement for years and I've been involved with some serious people in the business That's being Cohen. My main trainer with Derrick Smith John magner and All of the best people out there and There was one horse that kept me involved and I was to could be honest with you. When he retired? I retired. That's the bottom line. You wrote him in seven races winning six of those seven and you have said that over your career more twenty five years. He was the best you ever road. What made him so special and what made him the best you ever road well? It could sprint He had Athletic Ability I felt like he could win at six furlongs. Gone one awaiting change or he could go up Mile quarter and one fifty nine. And that's good enough to be anybody at any distance and he was just a a two athlete and a competitor jockeys go from one horse to another during the course the racing season and I'm just wondering yeah they're going to be horses like rock hard ten but do jockeys bond with certain horses. Do Horses understand the specialist of the jockey and and vice versa. Absolutely and I think I bonded with certain trainers to that. Put so much faith in the abilities that I have. I've had over the years that I'll just Put something out there for you if I'm writing for you tomorrow and I get beat and I'm fired. I'm not GonNa ride for you anymore. But it's I get beat and you put the blame somewhere else I'M GONNA beat back there for for you tomorrow and if you know I'm good at something at what I do you're GonNa want me back. I've always been interested in that bonding or not the bonding but the relationship between trainer Jockey and horse all three have to work in tandem with each other. Can you give me a little bit of insight into that relationship between the three. Well it's not just I That relationship but the the groom's the hot walkers it's a total package that you have When I walk out out in the morning to work horse at five thirty in the morning I've got to get along with the groom? I've ever get along with the hot walker. I've got to get along with the horse and I've got to get along with the trainer and the last person really that I had to worry about what the owner because the trainer made sure that the owner new I was the guy I need it. You know they say athletes say particularly in football that when they play they do a lot of homework by studying film and knowing what their opponent is and I'm just wondering how much studying you did. The various horses the tracks that you raised on in order to prepare you to climb into the saddle and do the best job you could at the end of it I did more. We're studying the jockeys. I was racing against in the race courses. I've ridden every race course in the United States for the past twenty five years. I knew him really well and and I wanted to know the competition. I was racing against. I wanted to know if I was racing against Jerry. Bailey Chris McCarron laffit Pincay by and I'm going back some years. Some guys that have retired. But I wanted to know more about the guys that was riding against For instance if I'm a quarterback DOC. That has the best defensive back going against me. I WanNa know what moves he can make and what plays I have to have to make To screw up his game plan. What is it that you can learn from studying jockey? What was it that you looked for then Gary Well Chris McCarron? I knew where he liked to make his move at what point of the race. I knew he liked to go wide. I knew I couldn't go inside of Eddie Delahoussaye. I knew that Lafitte Pink Sky if I came came up and hooked him at the Eighth Pole that he was going to have more horse than I had suspected Those are the sort of things that I looked for In a certain jockey When I whenever I was coming up to do battle with them How much horse? I had to have have to actually beat them in the battle. And that's what it turned into was eighth of a mile battle. Gary I've always been interested in how strategy and horse racing is developed between jockey key and and trainer and what I mean by that is. How do they know the horse? They're going to have. That's going to go to the gate. And how do they determine against the competition. They're going to be racing. How now they're going to race on any given day? Well I think it's very well planned out The great trainers know which great dances. They're going to go for. And and if they're going to the big dance and say the Breeders Cup the Kentucky Derby preakness Belmont those kinds of events. They want the guys that are seasoned and and used to being being in the limelight and racing for the big event and It just naturally teamed up up on certain days one of the things that leads Ravina. The Great Golfer told me Gary was. It's one thing to go out and play and win regular PGA tournament. But the your your whole career is really mark and what you do in the big major four tournaments. Is it the same way when it comes to the triple crown races for jockeys absolutely. I the only days as I really get. My Big payday is if I win on Breeders Cup Kentucky Derby preakness or Belmont Those are the days I make my big paydays and and Just for the listeners. Out there if I go out and ride the Kentucky Derby and I finished sixth I get paid eighty five dollars if I win the Kentucky. Khaki Derby I'm paid about eight hundred fifty thousand dollars do the math. You're you're only on your on your performance how how `bout a regular race During the course of the season and Iran and say well let's just say it's a Optional claimer worth one hundred ten thousand dollars if I win that race I make about Fourteen thousand dollars. If I ran for fifth or or worse I make about Ninety five dollars so again do the math. I'm only paid on my performance. One thing that a lot of people don't appreciate or maybe even understand understand is the wear and tear on Jockey's body they're small by stature anyway big on talent and one of the things that you said when you retired at your press conference prince there is a piece of my heart that would love to continue writing but my body can't take it any more. What was the damage? Done to your body over twenty six years in the saddle sound just a a brief synopsis. fourteen right knee surgeries Five left knee surgeries both shoulders. completely Repaired screws them. Both shoulders Two broken vertebrae in my back Six screws in my wrist. I could go on and on but I'm just going to ask you how that works on one psyche and self confidence because in in professional sports self confidence is. He's really the most important thing. Well I was writing for the right people at the end of my career Pets with Dan Cohn Who Not too many people out there know? Oh probably but he's training for the most powerful owners in the world and I had the best horses in the world that was riding He was giving me the best stop. -tunities and I was performing I think that About Eighty percents and I felt like there were other doctors out there that had ah the talent that I have The could've gotten the job done better than what I was doing. And that was one reason that I stepped away. I didn't WANNA A. B.. One of those guys at forty two years old right now is what I am. At the forty seven walking away in and hearing the bedding reading public saying this guy should acquit X. years ago so that's why I walked out. Yeah that happens too many times in sports. You scored your first victory in your very first this race aboard a horse called Lil Star. That was trained by your father. Take me through that race. It was a crazy philly that my older brother brother Scott. WHO's great jockey in his own right did not want to ride and so I was sitting in the bullpen? And my father. Put me on and She was good up and I was brave enough to climb on her back. She was crazy. She used to flip over backwards and try and hurt jockeys and I was brave enough and dumb enough to know that She wasn't going to hurt me and I I one on that first mountain I gotta just tell you a little story I on my five thousand San Dan Third Win My parents sent me a clock That was in grade. I win. Nineteen seventy nine April WPRO sixteenth libra park. Little Star. Five thousand and third win at Belmont Park in the horse's name and You know how what a what a riot it's been. It certainly has gary hold on a second Gary Stevens.

But one of the things I always wanted to do with this, the flagship show for the network was make it like a Nightline of sports, sixty minutes of sports or, or something like a Charlie rose interview because I think the fans can always relate to the human side of those that perform in sports, and I've had people on, like John gray who wrote the book, men are from Mars women are from Venus about the interaction between men and women when it comes to sports either as fans or as. They compete maybe husbands, and wives and tennis or golf, and we're going to do that this hour. Our first guest is Nina Kaiser, and she is a world renowned equine sculptor who began creating sculptors of horses in the mid eighties.

"They come over here to us Lasix. Okay. Why are they so concerned about that was gonna lose their best friend? It sounds like to me. Okay. What do you think about that? This is our way in this is Jewish a trainer for two decades. So Jude's probably a better person to weigh in on this because I'll Jude let's let's put the train a hat back on your your. Let's say you were still training horses. Urine California in your program has now been accustomed to using Lasix on a regular basis. What are your thoughts on this? How do you handle it? Well, I've always been always been opposed to race day medication from from day one. That doesn't mean that that I didn't use it because that was the rules in, you know, you're competing against. People that are using Lasix and and other things therapeutic medications, and and so you have to you have to compete on the field that you're playing on. But I I would welcome this. I believe that that the the less we use the better and the better the sports going to be it's better for for everybody. And I I've trained for athletes I've trained for hall of fame athletes, and you know, I'd say, well, you know, your horse needs arrest, and they go oh can't you give them something? You know when I was playing football. You know, I just they just give me this that or the other thing. And I I'd go out there and play. No. We can't do that. That's that's horrible. You know? And I just I think I think that there's going to be a lot of backlash. There's a lot of trainers that that they're setting their ways. I mean, if you wanna see professional people set in their ways horse trainers rank right up there at the very top. And and they're not gonna like it. But I think they might find after a few years that they certainly would would like it better. It would it would make all the horses better. I've I we still on. Yes. Yes. Question play. I wanna take my mask off just a little bit. Okay. I was trainer. Okay. I did this okay. In New York. Okay. And I really don't wanna review you might name. Okay. But I wanna tell you something when I trained in the seventies. Okay. Do and Lasix Hibbitt. I and there was no problem with entries. We needed to get started getting into race. Okay. There was no way that you were going to be. Nego? Get spy six feel at the time. Okay. So what they're saying here. I mean, I got into an argument today with a guy that get a year suspension. Okay. Because he heard that there weren't gonna use raise takes views. Okay. Yeah. He didn't hear suspension, but I never had that problem. Okay. Maybe didn't win. What he he's one in the past. But again when I'm getting they get so angry, and so crazy because now the game would probably come down to fair and square and the giving can exist without the drug because all you do eliminated and the attrition rate will come down to who survived. Okay. In those days. If you remember the v very very opposed to the fact of having Lasix introduced they still are Stewart Stewart January third has led you go. You got a lot of the talk in in in banning laces. Well, I'm telling you so again, I mean now that they Tim ripple. Makes it rule that is gonna be no drugs in the well, you've gotta take the neck out punch. But then you start back and you come back with a game that is out there. I mean, jockeys Chris McCarron them they retired early in their life. You do you wanna know why? I know why. Okay. Because there were frayed what was going on what he's being shockwave treated that'd been all kinds of different things that were loving the office legs. Okay. They didn't know what they were on gonna collapse in front of them. Okay. And to stop that they retire. They get out of the pitch it. But what I'm saying? Is that medication? Suck went world..

And then, you know, over the last the last five years, how could I not mention my brother what a tenure we've been on. We've been in every Kentucky Derby since he came to California. I think I should have won two absolutely mad stopped on exaggerate. Or he proved that he could have won by winning the Preakness my boy Jack this year. He'll prove that he could have won it because absolutely stopped on a dime to three three pole. And and just the things that I've been able to accomplish with exaggerated for my brother. And then the in the story. I honestly leave the best part is I've ever ridden. So far as big Brown and not real quiet defeat in the Kentucky in for four the triple crown it hurt. But I got to give it my all. And I would probably win the next nine. If we ran at ten times total I'd win the next nine time. But it saddens me deeply got big Brown was not offered. A can't. He was by far the best in that race. And unfortunately, he was stepped on. On and you could follow him to the barn after the race by following the blood trail back to his stall. So that that's a that's that was my most difficult to defeat him NPS queued on the wicked north up..
