I guess according to you guys know how this whole thing works by now but man. It was such a nice night. It was eighty degrees at first post sunsets about the fourth or fifth race ohs steadily cooling into the mid to low seventies with the best fall sunsets. Because there's all the big hills around to the west and You know it took me a little. While i i felt like the seventh and eighth race. I was kind of getting not not rusty from announcing but rusty from seeing races. There you know. Because colonial so big a mile a quarter dirt oval in the turfs like a mile and a sixteenth or something and so they're far away and you know it's just different and grants pass a half mile track so when i'm using my have innocuous they're like right there and so just. I kept my depth. Perception felt off. There's a few times where i'd be calling horses on the outside who i thought were most down the chute taking the lead or on the lead and i'd come off the goggles back. Oh they're half length behind the inside horse. Oops sorry people. So i'll get used to it. I'll get it figured out. But the happy to be back here in oregon column racist down here talking to you guys again. Appreciate a lot of nice notes on twitter about clad.

I grew up in south western washington right around portland meadows and work there portland meadows for a little while. So we'll talk about the early days Her for you know she.

I romanticized the the leave home journey and i respect to leave home journey whether you make it or you don't and i was someone who was the first few times i left home. Didn't really make ran right home. And i've i've come to realize got older like that's just That's how it goes. And but you know but i would argue that. It's it's worked well more recently but that being said like i just think there's something great about you know taking a chance wanting to do what you want. I mean sometimes what you wanna do or who you want to be around or who you wanna be with. It's right there in your hometown. And i have friends that have really never left seattle. They don't have any desire to leave. Seattle they have great jobs. They have great families. They have great wives. I don't say that the you know that. I love the leaving home story to put down anyone who chosen not to. It's just it's just always something. I've been you know like i said romanticized a little bit. I mean my book was that right. It was running away and Trying to make a new life. Somewhere else You know. I would argue that sometimes people and me included in that. Because i've done this a couple times to run away from our location because we think we need a new location to kind of spur. Change maybe could be spurred at home or anywhere and i know i was certainly guilty of that and but And a story about you know leaving washington to go work in california We'll talk about that. She worked for our chairman quits. That was her first job. In southern california and coincidentally it was two thousand thirteen when he got a pretty important horse at his barnes. We'll talk about that ride. And obviously her own training career when i graded stakes race this past summer and the chicago stakes at arlington and much much more. So looking forward to having an on the show coming up here in just a couple of minutes Obviously the big news coming out on. Tuesday was the i. Don't wanna say retraction of intrigued baffert not going to run his horses Over at departure think. He said he's not running in the oaks or catalin right. I thought that was. I feel like Is it tim welcome. I feel he's the guy that a lot of times gets the the baffert scoops these days. He says Let's see let's go. There's yeah there's a bunch of stuff hall of fame trainer. Bob baffert not going shipment spirit pennsylvania derby i don't like the way he drew baffert said about the number nine post Baffert also private mission. Who was going to stay in california. So there you go so both races lose a runner. So they're down to fields of eight nine billion in pennsylvania derby more quotes from. Tim wilkins reporting baffert. Said medina. spear will be pointed to the grade. One awesome again on october. Second private mission of the grade. Three zan yata they run. Well they'll go to the breeders cup. Which of course is right. Down the freeway at del mar Baffert this was about an hour later. Baffert said i don't like to well. He might have had the conversation at one time. But tim tweeted an hour later. I don't like to put him on a plane. Less a feel good about it. Medina looks good. I just don't like the way the race was setting up. I feel part of my success is knowing win to run and doing. What's right for the horse. Obviously twitter went. you know. they reacted as twitter. Does and You know the it was interesting. I was thinking about it like you. Know if you're a baffert detractor which of which there are many You know. I don't know why you'd be upset about him. Not running in the race.

I hear I hear sort of that. Sound of you lost John All right. We'll get back that'll happen. We'll get if you hadn't seen this zestful we didn't I the field was drawn Thursday but this is a horse yeah. I've been running a lot of mid eighty buyers seventies mid eighties and they claimed him for or forty thousand random back in a starter allowance which he won and he has been great for for an extended period pretty amazing and glad must've liked something about you know about as potential to go up a router ground. He's been you know you've been running a Mile Mile Sixteen theon he had actually tried a and one a mile and a half race. He's on the grass at Gulfstream. There's there's John White Jonah talking about zestful. What a claim by Mark Lad who's just done everything right all year all willy certainly has and of course very meaningful win for him that lawmakers mile my all time favorite race up into in the Pacific northwest which that's that's the big deal up there in for mark whose father was a trainer long inkers Ron Gland that that just men a lot to the family in fact it was great that wrong Glatt was there with mark on the day for the victory of the long anchors mile by law abiding citizen WHO's going to get get some time off and he'll return this winter at Santa Anita so he's giving some are in our after that long eager smile win but yes indeed this expose on this winning binge now and Senegal sapper out of a smoke lack of Marisa Nice pedigree there and Mark Lance meet some sharp claim and won some Nice stakes races and It's been a big year for mark well. He also has had really a a couple of chances with some big ticket some big ticket babies and it's great one of one of our really favored people and this you know th the I didn't do anything he hasn't been doing ran at eighty four. It's not like you know moved him upper anything it just this was a clever spot to you know to run zestful and he's he's been running in blinkers since January. It's also notable John. This was his eleventh start part of the year and he made ten starts last year and so this is a horse there's just thriving on the work kind of a throwback horses and also WanNa WanNa give credit to Bob Marina one of the nicest guys in racing and who does it just a superlative job as the racist secretary south coast else in that you know that's a tough spot to be trying to fill races and he's very creative Bob. Marino is so that's to his credit to to come up with a race like this so by the way you had bill downs just on. I sat next to bill in the press box at Santa Anita for several years. When I was doing simulcast commentary at Santa Anita Bill was doing the race the phone results trace he would go over and give the results but he was also an aspiring track announcer and he would be out on the we're practicing calling races and now he's been a longtime successful announcer at numerous rumors tracks but especially known for his work at Indiana grand and I also wanted to issue a happy anniversary Steve and for me? This is always each month on the seventeen th this is an anniversary for me and people would say why do you celebrate an anniversary every month on the seventeenth well it was on me teen teen eighteen eighty one that I met my future wife Tracy we have something in common you met Tina at a race track Saratoga. I met my wife Tracy at Racetrack Hollywood park which is just only yesterday. It was announced that site where the football stadium is well on its way to completion Asian. Now has a name so fi stadium is the official name of that New Football Stadium where the Los Angeles Rams in Los Angeles charters will begin playing next year and so where I met my wife is now going to be were future. Super Bowls are going to be held and but I'll never forget that Eh Hollywood park and on the seventeenth and it was such an important day in my life and I knew it right away that I've given my wife greeting card on the seventeenth of every month since May Seventeenth Nineteen eighty-one starting kind of nineteen eighty-one given and then she got her greeting card already today thing thing but I kept up all these years as the price of green cards has gone up that is about as that is about as sweet and romantic a notion. I love that that's that's really that's great. Well not only that right but you know I had worked for several starting with the racing form of nineteen seventy four and my goals starting in nineteen seventy four had been to work my way up through the ranks to get the southern in California as a columnist and reporter and in nineteen eighty one I was promoted to that position and for the first person congratulate me on that was Randy Moss now. NBC Randy and I had gotten to know each other at Louisiana downs in nineteen eighty. He was working in publicity. I was a columnist for the racing form there have when Randy congratulated me on ongoing Bombini promoted with the form to California California he also said by the way there's a girl out there you need to look up because I think you two would really hit it off and he had gotten to know Tracy at Kentucky Derbies Irby's because she was the editor of the thoroughbred cal of California Breeding magazine and so I'd already been tipped off to Tracy Tracy by Randy before we met on May Seventeenth Nineteen eighty-one I can also tell you that was a special day of my life because John Henry one feature that day the the Hollywood invitational grade one race and that was the first time I ever got to see John. Henry run live because I had just been working in southern California for a couple of weeks and I here's one for you the winner of the race before John Henry was a horse called me good man Dan who has won numerous stakes Louisiana downs when I was there for the year before at his trainer was Mike Stem who was very young time hours hours of very successful trainer on the national stage so bike won the race right before John Henry won the day. I met my wife there at Hollywood park work back in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. That's many many years ago I love it. John Couple of notes about particularly looking ahead to Thursday low sow and I don't know if you had a chance to take a peek but the phone chatter you come back with the two year old phillies in here. You've also got a couple of good maiden races the fourth which is for the three and ups and then two year olds continued this continues to be a hotbed for the two year old maidens and I think we got a couple in here to to keep an eye on that four hundred and twenty thousand dollar Gingham from Baffert the drew the rail this is the quality road philly that finished second behind. KP Dreaming Eamon at Del Mar Baffert baffled but holiday offers got a pair Seahawk Lisa and this hard spun philly out of Seahawk Walker and then sentimental that Giovanni Franko who's off to a rough start at the meat Franko was over nineteen nineteen coming into Thursday at Los Allan. This is an Honor Code Philly for Mike Stinson sentimental that was an expensive purchase and didn't run great in the debut but looks to work pretty well since the that came mid mid Del Mar so Columbia Gold to for Andrew Learner who's had a very good year very quietly. this is a dial in Philly for Marta wild so you got a couple of good maiden a couple of good maiden races and then when it came to the stake we're looking at seven to five for paid informant for Baltics the into mischief Philly that they viewed really nicely at del Mar back mid mid meet you form chatter was scheduled Joel over the weekend but didn't feel Ambaum. Marino kept his nose to the grindstone and low and behold was able to get this race to go for Thursday so that's good it's named in honor under the nineteen ninety-three beaters juvenile fillies winner that was trained by Richard Mandella and quality response for Bob Baffert Equality Road Philly certainly a contender six to five on Russell who decks morning line coming off the win it was she won by a big margin didn't get a big buyer in that race at del Mar but still was very visually impressive in that race and then you get Pratt on the rail with that paid informant who was a daughter of intimate S. shipping. We hardly see any ot- spring of intimacy if he doesn't break out there so this is pretty ready to see an intimate also coliseum. It's GonNa add some spice to the car to Los Alameda on Thursday in that ninth race. This is highly regarded dirt. Tampa cold that came out del Mar last fall was so impressive for Bob Baffert and one just with authority you got ninety one by or but then be really was just got unraveled during the Santa Anita meet nowhere in the sham when he didn't break well well and then kind of a very disappointing third in the same sentence as well so he went on the shelf. He'll get his comeback. There is nine to five on the line with Joe Talamo writing so even late in the card is that goes is the ninth race on the Card Comeback Race for in for Coliseum Racist for the powerful Godolphin operation in a couple of this couple of days worth of action. This card is nice and I know the fields aren't big and you know everybody should understand and appreciate what Los Al is is doing it as these more or less as these place holding opportunities opportunities at a juncture is on the calendar in particularly the the grass horses they get a chance to to fresh in and come back at Santa Anita. I reference John Before you joined us to their the CHR be meeting which I think is tomorrow DOC allred they re petitioning to get that that preliminary schedule that really short changed slow sal for next year. We'll see what comes out of that. We will indeed we'll see what happens with the with that date situation with the B also looking came forward to the Pennsylvania Derby parks this weekend myself and you know I'm GonNa go with improbable in that race for the Baffler Barn. Baptists had terrific best in the in the Pennsylvania Derby in recent years. You've got Mike Smith writing.
