Well uh-huh they disqualified point Aboard Master reality. He had the lead As he's I've been doing all year he's been riding aggressively and trying to use all the skills to get home. He looked like he was going to do it. And then balanced declare was on the inside Pencil Barron on the outside of fighting duck then tightened up paradiso. who was making this phenomenal for Wayne Lorden and that one little bit of a chain reaction with the winner Alan declare but it was hard to tell on the head on? When did it happen the stretch like they were right on the wires? So did it happen to strike. Before strike after SORTA stewards took quite a while to go over it and it turned out to be way. The inquiry work turned out to be Aidan. O'Brien's rider claiming against Joseph Brian's right doc. So they took Joseph them and they move up to third they put they put Joseph back the fourth. And then me off mine. WHO's Donald? But he wound up winning Craig Williams aboard the Toy. Your own son of declaration of war vow the choir He was highly touted into and all the commentary commentary before the rate big slice. I wound up betting prince of Aaron. He went off at sixteen to one. was in a winning position every step at one point. It looks like he's GonNa win and in fact at the Y.. Michael Walker stands hands up. biking won the raised. Any like what's to his last. Maybe not I've been. I've been a crutch back now. So he winds up winning running third moved moved up to second page eighteen dollars. The place one of his twenty. Something exactly came back for thirty with to watch go horses but as as Paul said earlier today you can make a chance for fourteen of them and then in the stretch of if you watch the race again and again but Chattanooga's Colt made the glass judge flying. That's making tons of ground surprise. That'd be Jut. Mine was at that Cross County residents winter hex software. Don't that but still he was coming on. William Bill just tremendous the Spanish on the wire and They took my keys on the the mind. veg suspensions actually out it's always it's always entertaining and one of those special days and I was in such a blur. You know coming out of the weekend and then traveling link so i. I was behind Catching up to it and all the and all the hubbub and speaking of Catching up and everything deck. Let's get your right before we talk Hong Kong and there is plenty there. There's actually a lot of news That I've seen from around the world Horses is that are starting to announce their intention to run on champions On the Champions Card but before we do that you're breeders cup takes so they would kind of disappointing my handicap and was just not what it should be. I was on with you when we're cavalry was on and I talked about tracking your father. Santa Neither Steve with that so that was no surprise the way the track played away from me. I just didn't have the right voices. I seven degrees with about if you tell me do tries. It's IT'S GONNA run back good in the first half. I gotTA figure Dunbar Road. It's GonNa be light in and she wasn't so that that cost and then I you know I I I knew track was going to be the way it was. I was right about that. And I know code honor the relatively small horse that Kinda gets over the popped track down too far and sure comes up the way. They're even like that goes on her and don't see was he. He didn't look before the race. Though I can't I can't blame it all on the track because in the post sprayed he was very antsy he was very not wash now going into the game but he was started warm. And that's to me. That's unlike him so even with the track he didn't look at going in and then obviously than handle the track so so it wasn't it wasn't a they want a lot of high five point Friday and Saturday and other than that originally this great I kind of had the opinion and Europeans Warren to strongest companion. Especially when magical make the trip turned out to be probably true but the one the one I really screwed up on sale sponsored that's That's that's when you go back and look how about applesauce episodes come up and I've been so so so I was just two more days of back getting it done okay. Well and that just shows you that you don't as I say repeatedly and I write that the introduction to keep people I don't want people to get completely flummoxed by by Breeders Cup and that they they you know they didn't do well and I. Can't you know you do well this weekend. delmar opens tomorrow and the Churchill. Fields Terrific You don't it's two days. It seems like they're the most important on the calendar when it comes to wagering opportunities but the money you make in the Melbourne Cup is just as just as valuable as the money you. You didn't make on Breeders Cup weekend and it's why it was one of those things where I kind of recognized that nothing seems to be working so I a lot of money Friday and Saturday. The thing is like when you're playing blackjack and you get really good cards. And then he keeps feeding him. So you're betting more than shirt because you're getting really good parts. Oh you get bad cards you just get that. Take your losses so I kinda problem everything down on Saturday. So wasn't you know I didn't that anywhere near the funding that I take him out. Taken out of my bank account too but the rights coming up and I look forward to the multiple foul and I got lucky because I could have just as easily been shoving second exactly. And that's what the that's what makes that's what makes it so much fun so maddening reddening or or so exciting. It's just it's gotta run for you That that's always the bottom line and on a day day on days like we had Friday and Saturday there were as as Paul. Matisse laid out brilliantly today there are things that are going to conspire against you. And you can't can't. You can't completely alter your game plan or abandoned your your approach. You can adjust maybe a B and tinker and throw in some savers and whatnot. But if it's not going to be your you know your day or your two days. Ah Ah but it doesn't reflect doesn't reflect on what lies ahead and and there's still a lot of good racing November's of terrific racing month that we got all the the action of Churchill leading up to the Clark And the stars of tomorrow to Ecuador off off to a tremendous start. I mean if they can if they can maintain this before people break camp and start the head to Florida and whatnot. It's going to be a very good Ecuador meet because the fields are competitive racing is interesting so that's often and del Mar With the first two cards sat and that looks like give. There's always a lot of good turf racing at del Mar so often. Go off we go. How about to spend the last couple of minutes? The Hong Kong updates about four minutes shopping rich sharpton ran on Sunday We now have a true Sunday. We have a high fifty races favorites at one. Twenty six percent the average field sizes twelve and one and the average win price is twenty dollars and fifty cents so prices again value. You and Twenty Six hundred seventy is pretty thoughtful considering twelve twelve though horses surveys Shopping on fat set Sunday very fast track is good too terminate running raid this time so when you look back at those races understand that they worked on pretty quick. Nothing really stood out on on. That took yesterday at Happy Valley They Rennes nine. Nine on the paraffin and interesting things Steve Race sex with the fifty six to one shot that one and you WanNa talk about how different things are from talk to them and I keep saying we want to be like the rest of the world that we used to be so the horse that won training by Begnaud young he was called into the stewards to try to explain this big former. There's a whole explanation the nation and and the chart comments and China's that easy stated that this was the second. Start off the way off. As I started at some mucous in his trachea they they trained him and congre which is inland about three hours minded China Trade Centre pollution and everything else and Hong Kong. Long time that's awesome but here stewards are paying attention not just You know I've done horses that I have run poorly a horse. Who when often you John? Why did he run so well? And that's that's you know that's called transparency and integrity.

"I primarily Victorian todd is it really important for you to Roy pre ships in Victoria is this guy now is involved in it then it's it's not just me it's more tame we'll have around me and I'm really lucky that network Sasha from my family and then goes out to the people for me or we'll me and so as a goal that was one thing that we really wanted to focus on because we didn't have any commitments outside of commitments in Australia. Now appearances not fixed up for jockeys in other in other countries lock at ease in Australia the worst case scenario does happen and it will doing what we do so we sat down Ted discussion for what we do for the law seven months of the season and and we we talk the championship and nine when we won the year before it was also brought up that the holder old Tom Holders Roy into the holds and live and so be amazing as a goal for us to sit as attained and we we said that goal so three premiership so equal Roy and then I play go policy while that's a lot my wife says it racy we'll go great competition and it's twelve months work and everything needs to wrought Siro but it is it is a great call and I love doing what I'm doing and and it's all understand that you just mentioned that with insurance and broadening and so forth are other precincts around the world becomes a question Mark picked up a contract gone rod for Godolphin someone sees a game would you yes they had the biggest in the world and dioxide in England you'll have a very similar to what we try so we are very lucky to ride mistrial and now with the especially with the the honey war that's going on with financially one of the world's ladies in horse racing jurisdictions it's fantastic finish writing jockey so with the plate of the ladies pretty I'm on developing the product of New South Wales rising and more be Victoria or against the New South Wales when you look at it from a from an solder looking in but it's not it clear cut what about opportunities in Sydney with the prize money increase if you ever thought about going up to Sydney and becoming jokey we actually had a making my wife and Leisa and Guy Waterhouse and Robinhood House had a meeting just would have been probably maybe ten years ago and and she fled the idea of May coming up and enrolling as part of her team we've heard jockey natural it's on and we discussed it and we have four children mewa and I and we just felt that was going to be a major shift up there and always also stealing between going and spending time into taking up contracts in Japan it was one thing that we didn't go ahead and do and and Dino Radja wrong but I'm happy being I'm a father a husband and Jockeying Victoria and there's plenty of opportunities here Viktoria but opportunities for you as a young Fella didn't come easy in particular touchdown you were born in Britain arising gang file ellen trying to ulcers your mother as a daughter of an ant standing champion China intake harrison so you grew up around it and now you very welding crab boy has jurisdiction might but things were not easy in terms of guiding Lawson says an apprentice jockey can the in-law this little net giancarlos had two brothers dining jason and five for them train horses and I always wanted sabet my father I always wanted to be a jockey and are at school writing stories that would be at that time it was called is it's called houses and pray stable jockey and then we'd win Cox plight smell when cops call them slips and at the same time we went to school we've never light I harrison who's my cousin and he brought the similar so he was he was worried if the coming so it was great whoo did hating certain races and and we write stories that will have families all children ride horses and ponies and and we used to fuck up they the bathrooms that it'll mirrors and think one and I didn't realize then we thought it was finding eight until we become jockeys and realize someone is fun and Games it's a hell of chocolates having having look whites and we've found it wasn't much fun neighbor did start out and I was quite heavy I was fifty kilos went on winning to the initial trial period can get to get a three months period and was fifteen I think I lost fifty fifty days of age What's the president to on as an apprentice to buy knock you back to Mike my father had a very good case and put forward to to the panel stewards who who's done and it was that the OCE Bay headquarters in South Melbourne and John repack end and he just say well if it's three months period he's still going through much trial period he still going to start school so if he doesn't make it to be what he dreams he's hopes and dreams of going to be shattered but if he doesn't maybe we can taping industry maybe he can be Ferriera Conroy track work something he doesn't have to necessarily have to be Asaki if he's white doesn't come down so you only trial period let's say let's monitoring whiten please give him a go down the drain that are going to be shouted if it doesn't if it doesn't turn it right to him and he put through good case and the rest is history but I'm very fortunate that I listened and most importantly beware in if I didn't have the support my parents and my brothers like amazing upbringing advising loft because I've had what support structure the whole time so of course in life you have good and bad times and you have to have a network around you and I was lucky I was born to that network so you leave school when you fifty you're selling them as an apprentice for three month test saving and bring Your White Dan work in the environment of the stable and the need to to reach of your father did you lose that why did you had a guy for that the three months was quite tough where you're on Dodd's yes so my father he was previously jockey and he said I want my son doing what I had to do in back then comparing it to what we know now they didn't we didn't have the education at disposal and and we're lucky because PAT highland son Tom Samdhong and we're all doing apprenticeships together and it was actually Marine Pat Highland that put my my mother and father onto eighty at one of the hospitals that does nutrition so then we went and saw this this lady and we I was in learning nutrition pretty condoling sorry I don't think I've really had I'm not sure but but they put me on to things that I had assault wasn't that strict so I was actually perfect for me being a young person and at that age you get told by speaks volume by a lot of things so it was great that we so had options to work around it wasn't that you had to do this and that the only thing was I was going doing a growing phases while we're both my brothers went through as well so I would say I had muscles that was that wobbly muscle cold fat anyway I was Pretty Pretty Pudgy so I I did have to lose and and then I had to drive because I wanted to do it on a lot my cousin I want to be my father and and that really drives me then we sought out a nutritionist? They don't want to partition and then true that we went onto a sportsman allegation who ended up being tyranny who is now head of the Victorian Institute of Sport so my parents put me onto the papal from eight to learn about what we needed to be obligated do and and then luckily body allowed me to to stay light and and now he won the top jockeys destroy that can ride lot it's a fascinating combination of managing growing as a young person young men working seven days a week every second Sunday off as an apprentice becker we're in the nineties and to be losing white but tells the bet natural ability where you're a natural as a kid was quite tough for you to guide opportunity to rotting rices and winners now wasn't I wasn't a natural a lot a lot hoses fast and but the natural and no mine never was but I always had to work hard and anyway that's probably what's being more strongly drink is just working hard and I love strategizing always loved the planning and the tactics and and but most importantly doubt the support I had the best thing I had even as a master my father he's turned out to be one of the lady mosses of apprentices as well look grain -taining in Sydney my follows the signing Victoria with everyone that went under and he's guidance fulltime it turned out to be the champion Raja's group one winning Rod he's very proud of that he does remind me that often but always very lucky osborne as every time I rode a race we were analyzing everything that we were doing and and still had that
