"Callers on hold. So let's go out to the phones right now. Steve in New York. Welcome to the bris net dot com and show my friend. So Bobby, long time. How's everything, my man? Hey, Steve, how are you? Good, good. So real quick on the Triple Crown. So well, actually, first of all, Rosario costs that the pregnancy. Epicenter will win that race by one to three lengths if after the horse breaks a little slow, he just does what any competent jockey would have done and rushed the horse into position that you need to be in. If he's riding or fine, you drop back to the rail and then you let the horse run in the lane. But that's not the case without ever saying. We know that. Anyway, the Triple Crown, the issue and I'll hang up at this, let you comment. But you're not going to get these guys, especially the top owners and trainers who really we know they're racing to breed, right? They're not really breeding to race all the money they're looking for is in the breeding shed. You got to give them some incentive to run. And these days, the money for these guys, like look at Chad Brown with zanden, for example, it's not really, it's not really about the money because they're going to get the money in the breeding. And there's going to be other bigger pots for horses like that down the road. You have to add some exclusivity to the Triple Crown, right? So what is it? This would never happen. The Arkansas Derby in the Florida Derby. They're not going to give up their grade one status. But when you make these prep races, grade ones, and now it gives these guys opportunities for xan and to win the bluegrass, a grade one. And he's like, all right, I'll go for The Kentucky Derby because everybody wants to win that. But after that, there are a number of I've already taken down a grade one. I got that on my resume. And there's some other restricted opportunities later in the year. Now, if you only have the Triple Crown races as well as the Travers and the Pennsylvania Derby as the few and the Haskell, obviously, has a few restricted grade ones for three year olds. Guess what? These guys are running in these races. So the preps either, either you say, listen, if you get into the Derby gate, you have to run into these three races. That's part of the commitment or you say, listen, the bluegrass, the orchestra Derby, the Florida Derby, et cetera, the wooden world. These are all going to be great shoes. And only a few select races are going to be restricted to three year old grade one races in the three year old year. And that's it and that's how you fill the gates and that's how they run. All I hang up with comment, man. All right. Well, interesting thoughts. And I don't think it's viable that any of it ever happens. What you're hoping for to happen. Because it can happen if one entity owned all these racetracks. There is no way that you're going to be able to that the graded stakes committee or these tracks are going to willingly lower the grades of their big races. Listen, the Florida Derby is the biggest race at Gulfstream. I know it's not the highest first. Pegasus is the biggest person. Florida Derby is the biggest race of culture. They're not willingly saying, yep, I think we should make it a great too. Instead of a great one. Nope. That's never happening. There's also no way that you can rope people into a two minimum two race Triple Crown commitment. There's just there's always going to be ways around that. All you need is a vet to sign off and say horse is not healthy enough to run in this race and not healthy enough to run the next race and it is what it is. So I don't think plus I just don't think that it's viable that you can force anybody's hands. So the exclusivity part I like, but the ways that you were mentioning, I don't think are viable at all. I'm not saying I know what a viable way is. I just don't think those ways could ever come to fruition. Listen, this is not a problem. The Preakness has no problem any year. Except the year when a healthy, happy, Derby winners connections just with no other reason other than we feel like waiting decide to pass on the Preakness. The Preakness winner, the Preakness gets the Derby winner every year two weeks later, every year and to be perfectly honest, who cares who's in the starting gate besides the Derby winner. We care, I mean, you care Steve, I care. People listening to the show, we like the game. We like to bet on the game. We either work in the game or where fans or we're degenerate gamblers or whatever. We're going to play no matter what. The general public, the people who are coming up to you and saying, what do you think about that Derby winner? That person who doesn't watch any races a year, except that. They don't care who's running against the Derby winner in the Preakness. They just want to see the Derby winner in the pregnancy. That's the only reason they watch. And this never happens. It never happens. Country house a few years ago, never ran again after being placed first in the Derby. That one year it happened. Grindstone never ran again after winning the Derby in 1996. You can't help that. Spend a buck had a $2 million bonus on the line if he won the Jersey Derby after winning The Kentucky Derby. So they ran in that. By the way, the Jersey Derby is this weekend at Monmouth park. Other than that, nothing. Gato del sol, I think, was the last one was a 1980, something like that. The last one who willingly skipped the Preakness to run in the Belmont. So this never happens. One time it happens, this long shot horse, 80 to one who almost nobody thinks is going to win. Wins and they come up with, well, we're going to skip and wait for the Belmont. Now everyone thinks everything needs to change. I don't think anything needs to change. I don't think you change everything because of one outlier like this. Let's go back to the phone's Eric in Texas. You've got Bobby Newman here on the brisket dot com, Colin, so tell me I'm wrong, Eric, or even better tell me I'm right. Thank you, rap, Bobby. I like to listen to you guys and I really like to listen to Charles and why he has to say about it. And I too was at the Preakness. I went there in person. And. I.

"One, his youngest baby, has a loan three year old that we read a few bears and by then they're a little bit more difficult to get pregnant, but he does have a three year old. Yeah, I was going to ask if he had many horses running period. 'cause I know he'd been shut down for a little while. Yeah, not too many. Our three year old year old is emerald, his name is stone. So we're looking forward to him running. I really want to see him stretch out. He did okay in the fall even at grant's past Wolverine track, but we are very high on him. And he just has a kind of done what we'd hope. But I think maturity and distance, I'm looking forward to see what he does anyway. So we're excited about him still. As far as choosing to retire as stallion from studying, I guess, pension is the proper term. Are there things a horse will show you as a breeder and a vet that maybe they're ready to move past that part of their career? Oh, I think, in large part, they sometimes are fertility declines in grindstones case. What happened to him as much as anything is that he got fairly neurological with time he got really arthritic in his neck and he just physically it was just very difficult to breathe and notice that weren't very cooperative. So any rate. And then by that time, was kind of rewinding now and with grindstone, we had gotten Jocko and so he kind of took over some of the interest from giacomo and then as you said, a while ago that the Oregon breeding industry and I'm not sure that declining is a good workforce, more like collapsed almost gone. There's very little thoroughbred breeding going on here now. Just almost. Yeah, I wanted to ask about giacomo and obviously I got to see him last time I visited two and he's still kind of a picture to behold and watch him and, you know, are you guys getting much breeding interest from him? Like you said in Oregon there's not a lot of me to get interest from Washington or California or anything? Not too much. Just because babies are known primarily as routers. And then his fertility has kind of declined somewhat over the past few years. He still gets marriage pregnant. It takes more time than that, which it seems like. But so he doesn't have a lot of infrastructure now, but then we got a new stock and he'd be bringing all of our mayors, but Mike's sudden been obtained a new styling partnership to three quarter brother to smiling Tiger and some are kind of banks to him, so I think we'll do most of our grading to him this year probably. What was known for a little more speed. I was going to ask, what was the most stallions you guys had because there was a time I remember there was like 6, 7 or 8 or something in there, right? I think we had about ten for a while. Oh wow. We became, you know, kind of involved with Aaron and ree Jones. They had a lot of stallions that they've spent a lot of money for. They were attempting to get to have Kentucky stallion when they got one name forestry, and they did, well, but him, but they bought a lot of really nice pedigreed horses. They didn't have resources. So we had those over the years. So that's the most we ever had though at once. I think ten. And at that time, the most mayors we ever read, I think of 234, one year. And so they did pretty well for us. Yeah. It would be the most successful sire you guys ever stood there. Oh, probably, you know, for the long run, although grindstone is certainly pretty good for us. But the Carol only and then, of course, I always say the biggest mistake I made in the breeding industry was I didn't keep reading everything to be Carol. Because they would run short and long and all of them would be useful race horses almost and then part of his problem or just kept getting competition moved in to burn with him. Yeah. He was good. Yeah. So we've been quite last week. We've had several that kind of touched on being the Bedouin soon. Just didn't quite get there as most animals don't. Doctor Jack Ruth joining us here on the program by grindstone of course, going back to him was trained by D wade Lucas. I know you've had some horses and winners with Dwayne as a trainer. How was it working with him? Wonderful. He's one of the finest human beings I've ever been lucky enough to get to know. And we did sorry right now we don't have anything good enough to have with him. But we did pretty well. Have you seen the Phillies got going in the arcade Derby this week? The Arkansas Derby. I'm sure looking forward to that one. Oh man, she's been incredible against the girls and he's trying her against the boys, which I also think is kind of fun. It adds a little bit of a wrinkle I think to this year's Derby chase, putting her in that race and obviously we'll see how she does. But it wouldn't be fun to see Dwayne. That would be just amazing. Well, I mean, especially everything that's happened with the other white haired trainer. Darn. I'm going to say non therapeutic levels of science and stuff to the testing results. So thank you for that and find this stuff that they used to. We have no consequences. And so I think it's not for practical here. Not good for racing in general and I don't know. It's pretty sad. As far as owning horses, you guys, you know, you vote horses since I know you. How many active racers do you guys have right now? I don't know. You're supposed to know that kind of stuff. Probably three or four. Okay. We own some small percentages in a couple that are in Arizona right now. And then we have, I think we've got three at emerald that are getting ready to run for the upcoming meets. So I'm not too many right now. Is the uncertainty about grant's past future? I mean, has that caused you talked about the collapse of the breeding industry? I mean, that was kind of coming before any news about grant's pass in the last couple of months that's come out. Has that changed anything as far as your guys situation? Well, that's hard to answer, I guess, probably because nobody's breathing hardly. Yeah. Not many people in Oregon are still breathing thoroughbred. Race field. Well, and I know that I know obi harbor became a big thing, or no, I'm sorry, not it will be hard. It'll be harbor was harbor the gold is at the stallion's name. Is he still around because he became a big deal for a little while there? I got harbor that girl did very well. And in the northwest, very, very well. They had a lot of speed and make it straight to that a little bit. So I needed extremely well. And he stood in eastern Oregon, and then he kind of represents almost more of a Washington style in the Oregon style. He had way more runners for I think the Washington industry a lot more in the Oregon did. But he's passed away. I think I don't even know time flies. I don't know. There's some time last year. So it's been more than a year now. Yeah. All right, doctor Jack, I appreciate your time. Like I said, I was bummed to see the news about grinds so I know how important he was to you guys, but I wanted to talk. I wanted to talk to about him and we'll catch up soon, okay? I'll see you probably at grant's pass. Okay, well, I'm looking forward to Jason. Thank you much. All right, doctor Jack ru joining us here on the program. We'll be right back after the short time out it is the Jason beam horse racing podcast brought to you by twin spires. This is the Jason beam horse racing podcast brought to you by twin spires. All right, big thanks to doctor Jack for joining us..

"It's kind of nice having the race is sponsored by twins fairgrounds because I don't have to I don't have to do my little edit at the start when it's sponsored by. Oh yeah. I always love doing that though. And they're off in the twins bars, haskells. I actually had to have to do that at Tampa this week because I'm recording I recorded the first part of the show last night Saturday night after the Louisiana races and do it because we have a 12 race car Tampa Sunday, so I just didn't know how much I was going to be able to get done. So anything that happens Sunday will be at the very end of this show. And so I'm recording this one Sunday morning. But yeah, it's a little three piece weekend recap. Hopefully if I wouldn't have said that, you wouldn't have known. You would have just thought, oh, there's Jason's normal weekend recap. I should mention, we got some good guests coming up this week, John Doyle, gonna join us former NHC champion, one of the head guys, founders of cofounders of optics. We'll talk some handicapping stuff with John, a little bit about some optics as well. I use it, I recommend it, I like it, I am not paid to say that or anything like that, but I do enjoy the product. And so I always like to learn more about it. I think it's a good handicapping tool. So we'll talk a little bit about that, but I was just some good handicap. I want to talk some trip note stuff with John as well. He's very good at that part of the handicapping puzzle and game. I mentioned last week when grindstone passed about doctor Jack root, who had the horse for the last ten years, doctor Jack is going to join us this week. You guys will like doctor Jack. We had him on years ago. But he's just a fun guy to talk to. I love doctor Jack. I consider him in the root family. Close personal friends. So I'll excited to talk to him on the show. I don't know who's going to go which day. I think Jack will go first and then John Doyle will be on Wednesday. And then Thursday, we obviously have acres and acres of stuff to look forward to. Now, I'm thinking Gulf Stream in the past here recent past at least has entered for their big days a little bit early because normally they enter Wednesday and it doesn't close till like 6 or 7 o'clock. And so I'm hoping that they do Monday like they did for the fountain of youth. And so then we'll have the ability a to look and discuss the big races coming up this weekend because they are they are big they are important and so we'll look forward to that. Also we got to recap the sunland Derby later today, but that might be that might end up into Tuesday, 'cause like I said, it's a little bit late. We will continue with the weekend recap here. Well, I guess it's not Dubai's a part of the weekend recap, what am I reading? I'm going on some tangent. Dubai is part of the weekend recap. I watched the nice thing about being on the east coast as you can, you know, it's a normal hour when this thing starts because out west starts like 5 30 or 6 in the morning or something crazy. But definitely watched most of the races, obviously a huge night for Japan. Winning several races. And that was kind of one of the big sentiments of people. You know, I don't follow international racing all that much outside of kind of the three, four, 5, huge days that kind of leak into the American psyche. For the general American race fan, I know there's a lot of folks who fall under national racing all the time. But the big point of conversation was how good Japan's product is, how good their breeding program is, how good their horses have become. And because I don't follow that much outside of the U.S., like part of me was like, well, I don't really care. Okay, so we don't beat Japan. We run against the three days a year. Like who cares? But they certainly stamp themselves in the breeders cup this year. And there's been good Japanese horses. I mean, you know, I always talk about cesario, the horse that got me to become a race car. That was 15, 16 years ago. But, you know, I suppose it is a story. Like I said, it's just not, it just doesn't register on my radar all that much. But they were certainly the story of one of the stories of Dubai World Cup night. The other one, of course, was country grammar winning the Dubai World Cup. In kind of a funny race, like the main track there seemed I think Marcus hirsch tweeted it was the slowest ever World Cup. You could tell at pretty early stages of the races and the race caller who I don't know his name. I know it's Alistair something. He pointed out going into the turn, like there's a lot of horses that are just not picking up their feet. And one of those was hot rod Charlie who looked like he was not picking up his feet until he started to. Life is good looked like he could not lose. I didn't think turning for home. And if he was going to lose, it was going to be midnight bourbon because really country grammar kind of came under a drive, you know, pretty early on in that final turn. And it was kind of a funny shape race, the way it looked. I guess, you know, with American dirt racing, you're so used to those FrontRunner types, coast and leap. Now, the myelin a quarter, very, very likely played a significant role. In the way this race turned out. At a track like Gulf Stream, that's not slow and tiring and all this kind of stuff. I think that I think that life is good probably even wins at a mile and a quarter. Now, he was getting pretty gas there at the end. And so was it the distance was the track? I mean, you can certainly make your case. But as I said, country grammar and hot rod Charlie like they were both under drives. And I didn't think either one of them was going to beat midnight bourbon, let alone come get life is good..

"Of the Kentucky oaks as well. You can go to our website horse racing radio dot net to check out the complete broadcast schedule for Kentucky Derby week. Well, I told you that there are 8 major prep races coming your way over the course of the next three weekends, at least 8 that are going to offer the winner 100 points in a guaranteed birth into The Kentucky Derby, starting gate. I'm calling it horse racing's elite 8, much like the NCAA basketball tournament. This is the elite 8, and it begins today with the UAE Derby coming up in just a little bit in Dubai. And then you have the Louisiana Derby down at the fairgrounds, part of a stellar 12 race program, and John Dooley is the man that you'll hear calling those races. He's been doing it for many years and he joins me now here on HR N John good morning. All good morning, great day here in New Orleans, sunny skies, fast and firm, so really looking forward to our big day of the meat down here in New Orleans. Love that voice. Love hearing John Dooley here on the program and can't wait to hear you call those races. Yeah, what a day. Louisiana Derby day is always so celebrated. Certainly in New Orleans and nobody throws a party like New Orleans does. Tell me about the atmosphere there on Louisiana Derby day. Well, you know, it's great to have everybody back. I mean, this year, carnival 2022, we had the cruise and the all the Mardi Gras celebration, everyone thinks of course, New Orleans around Mardi Gras bourbon street, the French Quarter and all the celebrating that goes on down there. But you know, traditionally, Thanksgiving Day was always the Thanksgiving Day opener here. It brings out a lot of fans to the racetrack and so does Louisiana Derby day. So with all the events in 2021 and great to have everybody back and fans coming to the races on Louisiana Derby day. So it's pretty cool. Before we get started talking about this year's races and that, you know, the 8 stakes races that are part of that 12 race program. I want to just ask you for a couple of thoughts on a Louisiana Derby winner and a Kentucky Derby winner that we lost this past week and that is grindstone who was so brilliant in his racing career. He won the Louisiana Derby in 1996. He is still the last horse to win the Louisiana Derby and go on and win The Kentucky Derby. Again, he passed away this week out in Oregon. What do you remember about the great grindstone? Well, you know, I mean, actually, Lou Hodges is our tract photographer here at his father, who Hodges senior and now there's Lou Hodges junior there on the bell ground press box Hall of Fame. You know, Lou shared a photo with me with grindstone and you look at the faces in the winter circle and the former owners of the fairgrounds Brian and Vicki kranz that just see the likes of Dallas Stewart Jeff Lucas thinking back to the Wayne Lucas is so trainee grindstone. I was just one of those horses, you know, hard knocking horses and, you know, yes, they had to see the news that he passed away at 29 and of course last year we had hot rod Charlie who running running today on the Dubai World Cup. So we've had some great past winners that have gone on to quit themselves well in the run for the roses. Mandolin, you know, while the course of around in 2021 named The Kentucky Derby wetter, of course, this year already in 2022, you go back to gun runner and we've had some good ones here at the fairgrounds. Look forward to seeing which epicenter takes that step forward here today in race broke. As I was getting ready for the show today, I was thinking about that a little bit. And I said, you know, John Dooley has called two of the last three Kentucky Derby winners on their way to Louisville. Yeah, you think about it, mandolin, and country house in 2019. Neither one crossed the finish line first in Louisville, but they are Derby winners. Yeah, and you know so many people, I mean, a lot of times, of course, and rightfully so. I mean, personally, I think, you know, either the Rachel Alexandra steaks or fairground soaks today, of course, we have the champion echo of Zulu, she's four before. It could be a grade one race down here. I certainly think a racetrack, fairgrounds racecourse, a 150 years. When celebrating this year, but we think so many times I think of the three year old Phillies that go on from here to win the Kentucky oaks. But in recent years, the three year olds that have raced down here in our series, even last year midnight bourbon, a little companion won the risen star, hot by Charlie the one Louisiana Derby. And of course, now mandible making his way back here to the U.S., but two of those sources talking about hard rock Charlie and midnight bourbon, they're competing against life is good. You know, today on the Dubai World Cup. So we've had a really great three year old series not only for the boys, but for the Phillies as well. Talking with John Dooley, he is the announcer at fairgrounds. You're very familiar with his voice. I'm sure this interview presented by our friends at jellyfish water. John, let's go ahead and start by taking a look at there are 8 stakes races. I want to make sure we have time to get through the greatest stakes. But I do want to begin by asking you about the Tom Benson memorial because it is named in honor of somebody who had a huge impact on racing not just in New Orleans, but nationally. And really a huge impact on the lives of so many people in that community through his relationship with the New Orleans Saints and the pelicans. So tell me a little bit more about this particular race. It's race number 8. Yeah, I mean, you hit the nail on the head there, Tom, and of course, his wife, but Yale Benson is still involved with the New Orleans chains organization down here and we've.

"Commander's palace third running time one 42 and three. That was a stretch run of the 19 96. Grade three Louisiana Derby won by grindstone. He is the only horse to have won the Louisiana Derby, then to go on and win The Kentucky Derby and unfortunately he passed away just a couple of days ago, but grindstone. It's been a long time since the Louisiana Derby Dave, the winner of the Derby, has gone on to win The Kentucky Derby will this finally be the year that had happened. By the way, it would never happen before grindstone either. There have only been three horses to win the Louisiana Derby that have gone on to win Triple Crown races. Master Derby in 1975 won the Louisiana Derby and went on to win the Preakness that year, risen star in 1988, of course, famously won both the Preakness and the Belmont for training the Louis Russell after the winning Louisiana Derby grindstone, though, the only one to win the Louisiana Derby and The Kentucky Derby, and they've had some pretty good Louisiana Derby champs of late hot rod Charlie won it in 2021, by my standards in 2019, gun runner back in 2016. So there have been some good horses, but more often than not, they don't have success when they get to the first Saturday and may we'll see if that changes this year, and obviously we first need to see who actually wins the grade to Louisiana Derby. Once again, welcome back. Weekend stakes preview presented by naira betts, Bobby Newman, Dave Freeman, that Louisiana Derby with a $1 million purse this year for the three year olds going a mile in three 16th. It's race 12 tomorrow at fairgrounds approximate post time is 5 44 central standard time. And the Louisiana Derby anchors the pick 5 and all stakes pick four and it really is a race with a 9 horse field that on paper Dave looks like it goes through epicenter. He looked so good wiring the field in the grade two risen star, and now the horses that were closest to him that day in the risen star runner up smile happy third place finisher zanden. They've flown the coop. They're going to go to keenland and run in the bluegrass instead. So now, epicenter, you would think would be facing maybe softer competition. Yeah, there's no question that epicenter is going to be the favorite and deserves to be the favorite. Not only did he run a big fig, did he look really, really impressive in the risen star, but like you mentioned, he beat horses that are legitimate Kentucky Derby contenders. Now that being said, he's not going off at 7 of 5. He's going to go off at four to 5 or something like that. And other than the risen star, there is no race in his past that says he is way better than everybody else. He also does not need to win this race. He could come back and run a second or third or even out of the money and still make it to The Kentucky Derby. He has the requisite qualifying points. So what's the motivation for Steve ask me? And he does not need to do it. You mentioned grindstone won the Louisiana Derby, went on to win The Kentucky Derby. I think that happened a century ago to I think black gold in 1924 one, the Louisiana Derby and The Kentucky Derby as well. You're right, my friend. Good catch there. Good catch. Epicenter has the opportunity, but who else? If not at the center, then coup. Well, call me midnight, ran a terrific race at fairgrounds out of nowhere, really, beat epicenter, came from the clouds and won the comp in January. Ten to one, I'm sorry, 6 to one on the morning line, but I think I'll be closer to ten to one. The horse though that is terribly mispriced in the morning line is zozo for Brad Cox, who's 8 to one and I think will be four or 5 to one when they go off. Yeah, I understand so this hasn't run against anyone. He won a maiden special way to sprint race fairgrounds, came back and won a optional claimer at Oakland, but those races particularly the two turn race in Oak Lawn was massively impressive. He posted a huge figure he won by ten and a quarter lengths. Yeah, the horses he beat were nothing spectacular, but if zozo runs that exact same race tomorrow, he's going to be in the race. He's going to be he's going to be right there and the price is going to be a lot better than that. And this is a one shot deal for zozo. He needs to run first or second to get into The Kentucky Derby. Pioneer Medina is a maybe. I mean, we saw the improvement in the risen star wasn't close to epicenter, but if you see more improvement for Todd pletcher, maybe rattle and roll on the outside for Kenny mcpeek wasn't great in the fountain of youth but certainly ran well last year at keeneland to me other than that zozo is the one with the upside. Epicenter is the most likely winner. I'm going to try zozo that somewhere around 5 to one. Well, I'm going to try another one with some upside and maybe a little hidden upside. And that's number 8 galt, who actually didn't finish the race in the fountain of youth. He was one of two Bill mot trainees that ended up not finishing the race because of the mishap, they're right around the quarter poll, but he's come back to work since the race. He wouldn't be in the race. I don't think Bill mount would run him in this race if he was not a 100%. This is a horse who looked like he was improving with each and every start. The one time that he actually crossed the wire against graded stakes competition, he ran a decent fourth behind white of barrios simplification of no donegal, and my guess is, if any one of those three were in this race against epicenter, they would vie for favoritism with epicenter in the race. So the fact that he was fourth in that holy bull, I think that was a better than looked effort. Don't know what to make of his last race. He was out of it early. He was making a run and then unfortunate circumstances happened on the turn. I think this horse will be closing and at 8 to one, I'm going to try galt as my top choice in the Louisiana Derby. I'm going to spread, I'm going to use epicenter. I'll use rattle and roll, I think he'll run better. I'll use zozo. There are a few in here. But I'm going to try galt on top to spring the upset in the grade two, Louisiana Derby. Let's go to the other side of the country, Dave. They got one graded stakes tomorrow at San Anita. It's the grade three Santa Ana for Phillies and mayors going a mile and a quarter on the turf. This is where they start on the hillside turf course,.

"Edition of the program happy to be with you guys here as we wrap up a week of shows and we're gonna do our Louisiana Derby round table. Now, you don't need me talking about the fairgrounds, which is normally what we would do today. I'd tell you about, oh, here's some thoughts on the race is maybe how the late pick fours can play. No, we're not going to New Orleans. Frank mcgoey, longtime New Orleans handicapper. Actually on the clocker team at fairgrounds now. So he'll talk a lot about some of the morning works leading up to this race for some of these horses. Gary palmisano, raised at fairgrounds, his dad, Gary Paul misano senior trainer, for years, and we're going to have Gary on the show with Frank. We're doing a little round table. We've done this four years in a row. This is the fourth year, so I'm very excited to have them back and to talk about the big race and epicenter year 7 to 5 favorite now. We talk about this. I don't want to talk too much about it because we talk about a lot of it. But the risen star was so highly regarded, both before and after. And really, the only one we're seeing is the winner. And the second third fourth place finishers were actually not worth, but slow down 80 who was kind of the fourth choice in the race. He's at sunland park for their big race coming up on Sunday and yes, mile happy and zanden are going to be elsewhere. So a couple of new shooters, a couple of, you know, so so for Brad Cox, you know, figures to be a bit of a player in here, but we'll talk with the guys. Is it as simple as epicenter? Is it as simple as echo Zulu? Is it as simple as that's it? Those two, it's all you need. We'll talk about that in more coming up to guys. And we'll get to it pretty soon here. I don't want to hold you up. I did want to talk, though, first about the passing of grindstone, the 1996 Kentucky Derby winner. Now, I often refer to the years of 1993 through about 2002 as my non horse racing years. Like I really did not follow it much outside of maybe watching the Derby or something like that. You know, our local track closed long ages. We didn't have live racing until 96, and even then I was, you know, if teenagers in the baseball friends and all that kind of stuff. But grindstone, I actually got to know because, you know, in his later years of retirement, he was retired or not retired. He was an active stud duty at oakhurst thoroughbred farm and oakhurst is owned by some friends of mine, doctor Jack and cookie root. Their son Ben root is a close friend of mine. He was my trainer when I owned my own horses, but grindstone passed away at the age of 29. He only for less than a month was the oldest living Kentucky Derby winner because go for gin passed away on March 8th. I had gone and visited grindstone when I went and saw giacomo. If you follow me on Twitter, oh gosh, when would it have been last fall? I think it was last fall. I made a video about maybe it was the spring. I forget. Fall or spring. But it would have been the spring because yeah. And I made a video about things trainers say like a comedy joke video. I thought it was funny. But it was that old cursed and you'll see this beautiful farm where I do the video if you go look it up. I'm sure if you just Twitter search my name and trainers, it'll come up. But I met grindstone that day, I had met him before and gone out and visited him and saw him that day and doctor Jack had said, you know, he's older. He's, you know, you know, it was no longer non active stud duty and stuff like that, but you know giacomo on the other hand is very much still in duty and was oxide and running around the paddock, but grindstone was an old man at that point when I saw him last and doctor Jack and cookie were we had doctor Jack on the show back when it was the bad America show. Probably back in 2016 or 17? Probably 2017, for sure. It was 2017. Maybe 2018. But whatever it was, one of the great people you come across and he was so excited when they brought grindstone to Oregon and grindstone babies are still running at grant's pass and we've had a few that are still running. I can't remember when grindstone stopped stud duty. I don't think it was that long ago, but maybe it was. But anyway, but there's still some grindstones running around in Oregon. And doctor Jack was so excited to get grindstone to his farm. Doctor Jack is a dreamer. He is a horse racing dreamer. He's a very smart man. He's a good man. Good family man. I always love in him and his wife hold hands all the time whenever I see him at the track and stuff. I just think it's sweet. They've been married for probably almost 50 years. I mean, Ben, their oldest is 45. So, but doctor Jack, you know, he bought this beautiful farm. I mean, he was always telling me he's like, I want to breed a Kentucky Derby winner. Someday, you know, in every baby he had. Every Oregon bread he had, which you don't surely think of Oregon breads as, you know, be in Derby contenders. I guess jump Ron was drummer on an Oregon bread. I know he raced at Portland Meadows, but I forget if he was actually Oregon bread. He ran forth in the Derby, it's pretty good. But he was this permanent optimist. He still is, you know, Jack still alive and he's still, he's still doing good. I just love that about him though. He always thought the next horse might be his Derby winner. And you know, was he naive about it, maybe, but he ended up with a Derby winner at stud. In fact, he ended up with two. He had giacomo end. Grindstone. And I remember going out and doctor Jack is he's a natural tour guide of sorts. If you meet him, he's a talker. And so he's giving me the two around and this is years ago and he would walk up to grindstone and grind so it kind of come up to the end of the stall and Jack would pet him on the head or give him a little pat real quick. You know, there's studs so there have been a winery. And he'd say, did you win The Kentucky Derby? Did you? Yes, you did. You won The Kentucky Derby. And he told me he goes, I say that to him every day. And I thought that was the best thing ever. Like how great is it? Because he did. Grindstone did win The Kentucky Derby, and just wanted to acknowledge his passing and share some notes of my interactions with him and, you know, like I said, I only met him and his later years. I guess I probably met him at the first, well, we had Danny Gibson on the show a couple weeks ago, her and I were talking about how we had gone out to that farm together to meet grindstone, and that would have been 2014. So, you know, he was 21 or so that year, so that would have been the first time I met him, I guess. And I've met him a few times over the years, so rest in peace, grindstone, certainly a member of or part of horse racing history. Here in the states, you know, when in the Derby and obviously for us locally in the northwestern Oregon with being a stallion up there. So rest in peace to grindstone. Why don't we take a one commercial break since it was a short open and we got a long round table. We're going to go right into it. One little commercial, tiny one, little 30 seconds. And then we'll have Gary palmisano Frank McGill right after this. It is a Louisiana round. Louisiana Derby roundtable edition, sorry. I just called 9 races. My brain is tired. It's a Louisiana Derby round table edition. On the Jacobian horse racing.

Only the third indian to amend singles match at the olympics by beating dennis. Estermann who you know. I have a big dennis fan. So i was bit sad but i was pleased at dennis managed to make it to the olympics. That was that was nice but yeah it's a great win for nicole. First indiaman winner. Olympic singles since leander paes ninety-six india. Absolutely fantastic fantastic chiba again. The olympics does give that platform for these sorts of situations to happen. And it's great to see you know. Players be inspired and achieve victories. That could've put i think. Put tennis on the map in that country. And you know. I think we see not in office. Boards is great to see that. I think with you know nations as massive as india. This is gonna be something live long in the memory firm. Absolutely end Yeah i mean we have an on. The side had too many sort of sensational thrillers. I suppose the most exciting match was dot chile each match against meneses where he it was a bit bizarre. He came well he. He came back from sort of a breakdown. Second-set then in the third set was five. Lavar had eight match points then. Went to a tie-break. He then had to save him matchpoint from minutes met. I can't say his name josiah mundus to wait into law set tie-break so after matchpoints marriage. It is fine legal three that one. That was an incredible batch. The just eds at ever experienced a roller coaster match like on the men's side. A a wild and it just came out no way i would've just thought you'd i manage allege experienced pay. I will know how to handle relatively unknown player a brazilian in singles. But how main three hours. It was ready ready swap walkway and then the other. I mean i guess the one fondue point is came. Let's talk bond murray because he dates you know. He is in the doubles. He had that fantastic win. Which are salisbury against moore. Who and who's ebba but he decided to kind of pull out of the singles. Now i thought was kind of interesting. 'cause now he's oversee Told you can only play one event. And he has decided to go in in on the doubles which i think in a situation other plays may be in. That situation might have done the opposite. And the you know the doubles two to one side. We see that in you know in grindstone's if if players get far enough impact on the want wanna commit to one. It's only the doubles. The gets put the on the shelf. I thought was interesting here. The even though he is double olympic champion in this event. He's decided right. That's the event. I just well. He must be thinking may be the you know he doesn't have. He has a better chance of meddling in the doubles and singles. Yeah i mean. I think he'd be a fool thing andy. Murray could have probably defended his olympic title in singles here I think he's definitely made the right decision. I mean he's got two goals already but if he was to pull out the doubles poor de paul. Joe's you know he wouldn't like his whole build. An endo would have been story right. Yeah exactly. And if i was doing so it was probably well annoyed that been the case. So yeah i think. I'm absolutely roy to pull out the singles. What if you've got all best world class opposed to play with in the doubles. He can kinda help. Carry you if you've got like a new onset of injury so i think that's absolutely right cool. I was just a bit annoyed. That maybe andy had been given that advice day prior to the games perhaps someone else to come in and take in his single spot in advance from from the british team. I oversee cam nori had decided already that he wasn't going play I know we were going to have done evans posi. He's out because of it so i take. Nfl would have been out coming anyway but so over bet like oh bad..
Freedom Is Not a Free Ride: Taking America Back With Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
"I really think that you know when you when you see what's happening in america today you realize this is kind of a classic pattern. God allows things to go too far as i said earlier to wake his people up and the enemy always plays in his hands and goes just a little bit too far and then suddenly people wake up. I never thought it would get this bad this quickly but it seems that it has taken the madness. I mean whether we're talking about antifa or the transgender madness. I mean most americans if they can finally focus they look they say. Wait a minute. But bruce jenner is a woman. You're telling me. I have to use this pronoun. You're telling the people burning down buildings aren't doing anything wrong. They're peaceful protesters. Notice your average american voice the way you do. I do looks around and says this has gone too far. Madness has been unleashed on the land. I need to do something for my kids for my grandkids. I thought freedom was a free ride. And i realize now have to pick up my gun and go to the phone lines. Maybe not literally. But it's a similar thing you realize that everything you held near and dear is being threatened directly when your kids are being threatened. Said you don't care you're gonna do whatever it takes. It's about the kids. You know the instinct you know what the lord and teaches us about parenting. The parents aren't about to take out a lot. They're not about to allow this to happen in their schools. They may not seen it. 'cause they worked but you know. I think the combination of having the kids at home during kobe. I think the left's movement. I think the idea somehow that our country was founded the sixteen nineteen project. This this idea that we're were racist because we're white this is some parents are not going to sit back and allow to be propagated. And so it'll take a little time to regain control of the city. Councils of the school boards of these state boards reaches that ladder university system to become american universities today. They're largely not american and frankly not the kind of university anybody would be proud of. I think people are gonna take this all back in. What they need is good leaders. Who are fearless. Helping them figure out where to apply their shoulder to the grindstone. We know choices

We really came to the conclusion as we listen to. A lot of people like elon. Musk for example which has done amazing things in the world. But when he advocates that people should be working eighty to a hundred hours a week and he's done that at numerous entrepreneurial conferences because he said if you can put in that kind of time you can do three to four months what your competitors will take a year to do and that will give you a competitive advantage.

These are the unsung heroes horse racing full of unsung heroes including my special guest here. This morning lena lori l. who is the longtime exercise. Rider for hall of fame trainer. Shook mcgahey began working with sugar and nineteen eighty-four after moving from her native sweden. She is still with him today. Shook says she is an integral part of his success in his hall of fame career. And lena this week's unsung hero. Lena thanks for taking the time. Appreciate the visit. Our you know thirty seven years is an awful long time to do anything but to be an exercise rider for a man of the stature in an operation the stature of shook mcgahey boy what a ride. This is ben Yes i mean. That's the. I'm so lucky because i get to work with some of the very best horses. Then we have all the best resources so that makes my job easier to the come from the yes. Go ahead. I'm sorry to interrupt you. Go ahead no you go. How does a girl from sweden ended up working with such prestigious operation like shook mcgahey as far as I traveled in europe for a couple of years with a girlfriend and then my girlfriend need to go to america to so i said okay. I'm gonna go for six months. And then when i came over here As far as i freelance for a couple of months and then shook needed somebody to go to florida. And that's why i approached him about coming to where the job while still thirty seven years later the relationships still stands and still going strong. He sings your praises when i reached out to him and asked him if there was anybody who could think of that deserved to be an unsung hero on this particular segment He immediately sent back to me and gave me your name and your number. And he is so proud of you lena. While i'm proud to be part of the things that we can work together and the have because it seemed work. Everybody's important has to design work and that of course you have to have good verses to get to the top level which is why we like to be. How do you describe your role as an exercise rider. I'm a little bit of teacher like you. Work with the horses. Like young children and my job is to get them ready for the racist. Now some of them. You can see them in bombay. You just show them one time and they know exactly what to do and some of them you have to practice over and over and over again just like that like how children can be not everybody learns the same way so my job was something going on. Yeah it's such a great way to put it. I love that being a teacher working with these young horses. Getting them to to develop mentally and physically i i would imagine. It's about both of those right. Oh absolutely and that's i think that's the biggest difference between regular horses good horses and really great tortoises that great horses have special mind they have a special mindset. They used it really enjoy their work. They understand what you wanted to do. So a lotta times my horse. My job is easy because they already wanna do right now and out the other horses that you really have to practice with and have to do the things a lot more slow as it's as more of a challenge because towns on if you are yeah yeah there has to be more development. If you're the teacher tell me about some of your your price pupils if you will.

"Grunts trump walks to. Carl crowds trump. Now here's your host. Jesse cohen were kings. Gave up yet. Another third period lead to the minnesota wild. But this time jack this time they took the lead again and held on for the wind joining me. Minnesota native jackson lonski harry doing in a jack. I'm doing all right jesse. It's good to see the kings hold onto a third period while lead for a while me get what they needed. And that was the two points for minnesota. So good night for the kings You know everybody asked mccollum sitting anybody who watched the game. would would say that. It wasn't their strongest game of the season. Honestly i thought they played the first Let's say thirty five forty. No trying to think of how mathworks doggy diverse. Thirty five minutes. I thought they played pretty evenly. I thought it was a pretty boring. Typical minnesota kings game then. Obviously the wild came on strong in this last quarter maybe last third of the second period and then obviously they tied up early in the third But then the kings get a a really nice goal from carl grindstone. It's good to see and then hold on. You know without getting too deep into it like did you feel like the kings earned that win or deserve that. I don't know if i would say they completely deserved it. But hey i mean it's a fifty six game season you know when you're talking about your average you know season there's gonna be some games there you completely deserve to win or you completely deserve to lose in. The opposite happened. So i mean listeners. Get used to these type of games with the wild because we're going to see them a handful more times in the in the coming days and These teams like to play tight games. They don't play very different types of styles so No surprise again that it's a one goal game but overall you know i think you hit the nail on the head when it comes to you know the first half of the game was pretty back and forth in pretty slow but yet even and then young kings ended up getting that first goal in in. That obviously was huge. Given the fact that they wouldn't have the third period of lead. Obviously that lasted a minute or so. But hey Phenomenal penalty kill by By the kings thereafter the the loss challenge and They're able to to gain the momentum back Slowly after that an ended up working in their favor this. Yeah i referenced. The money puck dot com deserve to winnow meter in the past. And i just loaded it up here after thousand game..
"grindstone" Discussed on Bit Storm
"Something like that but you lose the fought yes And then yeah. I'm picturing like it could actually be really cool sitting there throwing vr and and you know here because the door organs in some some not comes in who has come back from adventure potty. Whatever to tell you what they found and you make some decisions and then yet peasants farmers or whatever like hey we need money for this would want to give it to us. I heard that you stole some bread graded by we'll let did eventually set like everyone who comes in. There's an option to just eight. And sometimes that not just completely cut off storylines that you otherwise sane. Sometimes the prime minister come comes to see you and it was like so we've got some problems of exactly and so you never find out about the army amassing at the at the border. Well then maybe that maybe you know obviously if you if you knock of key people it might just make the rest of the game really difficult because you're going to be attacked in five days and there's no time to do anything again but then if you've eight enough peasants than you get big enough you can literally just roll over the whole lomb in so it's a cross between the yes migraines and category democracy but instead of picking up link tipping peasants love it. I reckon this is the last one of these and then we'll go into something a little bit different show. Brave device accumulated flexibility. What's the device. Well i was actually thinking when when i saw the would accumulated and flexibility that. It's almost like a fantastic full sort of thing where you've gone flying through space and the gamma radiation or whatever it was gave you the these stretch armstrong likeability of must've fantastic. Know a lot about it. But why don't we literally just do. What a fantastic four game with look like that was what was going to say if it was good we might not make a good one but if it was designed by us who we got. We've got Stretch armstrong yup richard Richard rate raid riches raid richards We've got the stolman sue storm. We've she can do false. Go to right. she's yet. Essentially violent is based on from incredible. We have thing the rooker easy to photos. The thing and i was like. That's something else all right but we have the thing and then we have five kid. I remember in fantastic full cartoon. I seem to remember. That was actually a cartoon that had like. Oh yeah little. Herbie the the fictional remote but we can put it in the robot so look fantastic polls usually against doctor doom right. That's like the main cutter. Yep of the pace so i think the cool idea is actually instead of having johnny stole. You've got herbie humanoid experimental robot b type integrated like electronics. Okay instead of instead of because for some reason maybe maybe johnny psalm like didn't want to be out of fantastic universe pre show. He ended up going to hospital the packers that may be when he was getting high school. Diploma okay so that brings the devising all right. Got ya reason why i'm bringing media. Religious is like some yuba scientists. I feel like covid device but now we can go with. Who would like we'd like niskanen thing of herbie. The bought his neighbor the episode title. So i think we are again because mind on not going on this. Because i don't know how stretchy arms are going to work with be at the. I know how it's gonna work. I want like forward and as move your hands around. They moving on the end of your arm over there and you can like crawl up wohl grindstone and then suck them back. Okay so is this a full planet coop. Oh shit paiko via okay. Let's see let's think mechanics stuff and how it would work in vr. So yeah. I think i think obviously reed riches yet you can sort of fling your arms out. You've probably going to like if you're holding down the grip something they go out and when you know the they like on whatever you want wanna be at a group stuff while they while you hanes essentially you flinging your arms around and you can do like they could do like grapple points and stuff that as long as you sort of fling towards grabbing swing. I mean there's just something about like you're in the middle of a battle and you've storm character creating barriers and know we still essentially got like just on your on your hands. You've got sort of fairly lodge each varies that you can move around two block off very long that you can do that but they need you know if you pal up enough then you can. You can create like a a barrier of when you go out to the side and you bubble around. All of these are randomly. Yeah them then. You've got the thing who just goes into smash it. Yeah he's just smashing. She had he can just pick up stuff in the i and israel's because because of vr is awesome with scale like throw it can be like big hagan. Just be bigger in like have to duck down getting into doorways and share the fuck this herby do what ability. Maybe it's maybe it's a three play cole.

Kim Ng Makes Baseball History
"We'll somali i. Can you talk about your own relationship with kim hang. How did you get to know her. I started reporting on the dodgers around two thousand eight or nine with espn. And i'd see her on the field and she always was just kind of calmly standing there and you know just seemed like whatever interaction she had with people were seemed to be efficient and short and so it kind of intrigued me. Who is this person. So we just got to talking like. Oh this is this is coming. She's says gm and all of a sudden she's telling me stuff like we've got this kid kenley jansen as a catcher. You really can't hit those we put them on a mound and the results are interesting. Clayton's working on a slider molly. You should really check it out. But the where she would say it was so matter of fact and so dislike whole-home that that's kind of what stood out to me about her and then we've kept in touch over the years. How would you describe her personality. What she like completely unflappable. I think the first thing that needs to be done is. I've got a really familiarize myself with all. The ins and outs of the players. Deadpans are totally cool under pressure. Like the person you gonna call if you were kidnapped and needed the ransom delivered by noon with no you know without tipping off the police or anything else you. She won't be there. Where are we who these players are. And you know. That's that's at this point. The nuts and bolts of the job. Well for those. Who don't know that much about kim. And can you tell us about her career path so she played softball diversity of chicago. She was an infielder. She was really good. I was really a a sports nut love to play and she then became an intern with the white sox and twenty one years old working in the white sox baseball ops as an intern and at the time the other white sox were very good club had a lot of good young players and it was really just about learning and soaking it. All in absorbing all that i could and by the time she was twenty nine she was brian. Cashman the yankees assistant general manager and that was in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. They won titles ninety eight ninety nine and two thousand now. Let's be clear here. That had she been a man she would have gotten a gm job somewhere else. But that didn't happen. Molly you about saying and how. She operated differently than her peers in l. a. Can you tell us about that. I mean that that dodgers organization was by a bunch of guys who were so emotional so yell at each other so in their feelings she was just sort of just like standing there. Like i can't believe you guys and so it was just like toddlers running around at her feet. Two thousand five. The gm position becomes open and she interviewed for that job. What happens there. She was by all accounts. She was right there and franklin court the former owner of the dodgers wanted to hire her her pedigree spoke for itself. She had three world series rings. She had sixteen years in the business and the owner frank mccord. He wanted the credit of hiring the first female general manager. But what i was told later was that he was scared of the backlash of being the first guy to fire a female general manager. Because as we know it's a cutthroat industry n. gm's they don't their shelf life long even talented ones and so that was one of the reasons he was too scared of that. I guess the mcchord years got really ugly and about i say i wanna say two months before. The dodgers filed for bankruptcy. Because of a court drove the team into the ground. She got out of there and went to work with joe. Torry be again demonstrating how smart. She is molly. You know as well as anybody that kim has been talked about for basically twenty years now as the person who is going to be the first woman. Gm in baseball. Do you have a sense. For how many teams have considered her or interviewed for this position. Because yesterday when i wrote my story i published. I said as far as we know. The dodgers angels the padres the giants the mariners. They've all any reader and within like two minutes. My story going up. Somebody with orioles texted me. Oh we interviewed or to like it was just like everybody is interviewed her. Just sit there going through this anymore. They're just putting me through this so they can fill their quota or whatever i'm not gonna put myself section but she just did not give up and that's really the way a lot of my career has gone is just every step of the way it working as hard as i could give you my nose to the grindstone and just you know getting to the next level but i think this is so valuable to any of us who do have specific dream in mind about something. We'd like to do one day. And that's you know when you call close and you don't get that job that you desperate for just got a flick flush it and let it go and not let it break you to the point where you're not going to try again.

Will PS5 Be Affected By All These Game Delays?
"Are here of course to talk about playstation games and one of the big things I wanted to talk about. This week is sort of all encapsulating topic that does has tie back to last week's episode and the irony of it which is delays there have been so many delays not just for last week's episode but since then Two of the most recent recent ones include dying light to being indefinitely delayed. It was originally going to be coming up this spring. It is now coming out sometime in the future ironman. VR was supposed to come out in February right around. My birthday was really excited. It's now been delayed until May Fifteenth Twenty Twenty of course last week seven remake was delayed by a month marvel's avengers was was delayed until September and cyberpunk twenty. Seventy seven was also delayed from April to September. So we're looking at many of the end of this generation's biggest games james coming later very close to this new generation. Of course that's not to mention these smaller delay that the partout also got a few months back into may we're seeing a lot of delays. The big first opening question I wanted to ask both of you guises and if we're on too much conversation last week stopped me are are you guys worried by any of these delays women OI D- yeah. I don't know so I'm annoyed as someone who wants to play Games when it's not nice out you know like that's one thing I hate is is like Oh cool like March like I'm not going outside March I hate that month it's a crappy and then they're like no good news is getting kicked to like September. It's beautiful outside. Good news is like cyberpunk cyberpunk coming on April. I would've I would've been outside being. I wish I was inside playing video games and oppose inside plans. It's beautiful outside to go outside but like I don't know it's it's frustrating. It's stupid both in terms of like as a Gamer but also someone who has to talk about these things talking about delays is not exciting. Yeah dramatic cancellation. It's just a mild inconvenience convenience. It's like Oh we have to wait longer and we have to. We have to tread water and be like. Oh this vamp what do we hope to see. I don't know what do you think it's going to happen next. The sequel who knows there's also this fallacy also that delays inherently by the team more time and the by and large from. What we've seen in red anecdotally is that they don't they actually extend crunch which it doesn't make it so CD project? Red Has like an extra six months or something to work on this game. It just means that they're like pedal to the metal nose to the grindstone and other stupid things uh-huh harder than ever for even longer which is like unfortunate. I know a lot of people. Don't really think about that part and in many ways I don't blame them like they don't really want to know how the sausage is made they. Just I want to have the sausage and I get that. But like digging into it and like following deb's on twitter. A lot of them were really saying a lot of the same stuff here. which is this is not necessarily necessarily giving them more lax creative freedom more space sort of like spread their wings a little bit? It's actually making it harder for them and extending their work hours. They want to ship projects. They WANNA get these projects out and not that this makes it so that that finish line is further down. And that's disappointing. The thing that I've have been saying is it sort of in this obviously feeds into the crunch culture as well. Is that at this point. Like just put the make the Games next launch games and I understand. It's not as easy as dragging dragging and dropping but something like Saturday. Of course yeah right so then like Sabir. PUNK is being developed concurrently with high end hardware which means that hypothetically there are versions of it that exist that are way better looking than the ones that. We're all GONNA play on our councils that we bought five years ago or three years ago.

Elon Musk should get more sleep, Arianna Huffington says. I can't, he replies in 2:30 a.m. tweet
"Were talking about last week about Elon Musk and this interview he did with the times and he just seemed like he was a mess and it. Showed, on Wall. Street yeah that's right so now we have this question whether or not must face a range of penalties from the FCC. Because of this tweet so we talked about. The tweet last week, we talked about what what he. Followed it up with so ultimately he has a tweet, that says funding secured then it turns out that he'd had lots of conversations with the, Saudi sovereign wealth fund but the. Words funding secured haven't there's been no signature, on the dotted line but he says he left his meeting with no question that the, funding had been secured but that doesn't really live up to the the level of secured funding. That people would expect if you, say funding is, secured. Then that means There's actual funding lined up there's a signature on. The, dotted line. We got the money so now there's a question what happens plus you know you on muskets has now talked to than. Your time since then this interview there's the. Open letter from Arianna, Huffington telling him he needs to. Get more sleep this is this is becoming quite a, soap opera well I want to say that the the I think Elon Musk attention the, spotlight was on him ever since. The tiger cave rescue if you remember he, a pretty derogatory comment against one of the British divers who was involved in that and, that was the first real indication that you saw the cracks well yeah along with this the. Brilliance that this guy obviously harbors, in his brain It's something started to. Take, a toll on him and and my, question is is it better. For him to take a break and just say listen I'm. Not doing anything for three months or two months or whatever it is or is it better for him, to keep his nose to the grindstone and continue to push the. Company, even. If that comes, with these, random tweets that are getting him in trouble I mean I think that's that is a a such a tough call because of course they're going to be people in both cats who are either long or short the company of tesla I think there's going to be a lot of people who would probably say you know what just take a break from the Twitter focus on the big stuff that's. In front of you focus on making sure that. Your, car are, coming off the line that you're getting them to customers on time and that you're solving any issues on the operation side and his his comments to the New York Times that he's working, around the clock every single, day to figure out that part of the whole thing to figure, out, how to make sure that his business is running smoothly I met what's happening, on the business is happening
