"Well, you know, it's funny because I have a picture of a picture of holy ball, which I've had for a long time. And I have it in my bedroom in my apartment. And I thought about bringing it over to the office. But there's two problems. One is that a picture shows him in the Travis beating concern who the Maryland bird. Yes. So I think it's ban mo Jo to have that picture. And also, as you said, in fully both last start, he lost to cigar with helped you kind of pass the baton over to him. So I think having a picture of holy bull in the office, I can't quite do it. Yeah, I cried that day. When holy bull pulled up and cigar went on to win, because holy bull, I mean, to this day, still my all time favorite horse. And I joke with you, but every time somebody brings up cigar, I have to tell them that if holy bull didn't get hurt, you never hear of cigar. I don't know about that. I mean, he's sort of had a good career, but who knows? And you know what? As great as I was winning streak was, it would have been just as cool to see him do it out with holy ball. Fantastic 95 students. Yeah, it would have been a great rivalry. I agree a 100%. That would have been, yeah, that would have been great theater throughout that entire season, but unfortunately we didn't get the chance and we'll get a chance to witness some unbelievable racing coming up later today at Laurel. The 37th Jim McKay, Maryland, million day. It's going to be special. And John, I can't thank you enough for being here to walk through some of those races, my friend, enjoy it. Thank you, Mike. All right, John P is the communications manager for the Maryland horse breeders association, lots of great action coming up at Laurel later this afternoon.

"Start after putting two years or three years worth of investment. And so I think it's a constant effort because the state of their own program. We're competing space that we're competing with the surrounding states to get business. And so we have to we all respond to each other if somebody adds a new bone as we added a developer bonus a couple years or so ago 6 months ago and which rewards people who develop the horse and started and even if they lose the horse or sell the horse later, they continue to get a bonus. That was new and very innovative and then I think Pennsylvania did it right after we did it. So it's that kind of you've got to keep up with the Joneses, I guess. Yeah, and it's 15%. It's not like you're offering a 5% bonus to the developer. This is significant it's 15%. That's a big number. It is because it's a big number that those people have invested in that horse. Right. Whether they because it actually will reward somebody who buys a horse and starts it here. They have to start here. But if you buy Pinnacle horse and get it ready to race, then you get that. It's a way to get money back in the original investor breeder investor buyer buyers pocket. So they'll continue to stay in this business. It's a tough business. It'll wake you up really quickly when you're seeing some of those bills come in. And if you have an opportunity to return on your investment. And so that's what we're trying to offer. And it's on many levels. You can't just address one group. I think we focus on breeders, but obviously the breeders, for the readers to be successful, you have to have owners too, whether it's one and the same or whether you're for the commercial, people you have to have owners who are going to buy their horses. So it's trying to make everybody make a little money. Yeah. Yeah, and I'll summarize for you. Registered Maryland breads are now getting 30% of a bonus incentive goes to the breeder. 15% to the owner, 15% to the developer like we just talked about. And an additional 10% for maiden winners, let me ask you this cricket. Are you now where you want to be with this program? And if not, what work still needs to be done to get you where you want to be. You want to be. I think there's, I think the incentive program, the bonus program is to a point where we believe it's going to be successful. But then, of course, you work with the racetrack to provide races that give those horses opportunities. So I think there's work to do on the condition book. I think there's work to do on claiming prices. There's other stuff that is not something that our association can actually design, but we can work with the track and the horseman's group to do that and try to get what that, of course, what that does is help them get fuller fields. And that's the goal, too, that we want everybody to race here and have really strong fields in Maryland. And in fact, right now and through the winter, the Maryland breads have been winning and hitting the board at a pretty high rate. And so that's exactly what we're hoping to do. However, you've got to manage the money to make sure that you reward everybody properly. So. Incentive programs, we work hand in hand with the legislature. So in Maryland, we get a little portion of the slots revenue and wagering and so you've got to make sure that the money that you have available, you can spread appropriately, I guess, or to the best of our ability designing it. And that's always a challenge. Visiting with cricket Goodall, who is the executive director of the Maryland horse breeders association, also the executive director of the Maryland million. And this year's Jim McKay, Maryland, million day comes up on October 22nd at Laurel park. Cricket, tell me a little bit more about that day and what that has meant to the state. So that Jim McKay and his infinite wisdom had been to the breeders cup and came back and said, we got to do something here like that. So it really focuses on the stallions. What it does and what we wanted it to do and it is doing is encouraging people to come into Maryland to breed to our stallions. They can then go full in the state of their choice and take advantage of multiple programs. The Maryland million program and their state incentives. So it's sort of works concurrently with the Maryland bred program, but it doesn't necessarily have to. So it's been great. It's been doing what it is supposed to do. Obviously, the stallion colony has shrunk here as it has in every state, so we sort of drill down to a core group of about 30 some stallions in the heyday and originally in 86. There were over a hundred stallions in Maryland and so, but that being said, that's not the Marilyn million's fault. It's just the business. Everybody is concentrating on focusing on what'ss they want to breed to. So it's been a big success. It's turned into a really big event day for Maryland. It really celebrates Maryland locally. The legislators come out and they appreciate all the local color because it really focuses on most of the time, small breeders who don't have an opportunity to run and in the Preakness. They might run on pregnancy. But it's just it really is designed to do that. And I think it's done. It's hard to make big events now because of all the competition from technology and so it's hard to get people to come out to the track, but they still come on mail a million days. So we feel very fortunate and happy about that. Yeah, it's definitely one of the great days of racing in the state. And even around the country, and you can go to Maryland million dot com if you want to learn more about this year's renewal on October 22nd, you can also go to Maryland thoroughbred dot com if you want to read about all of the incentives for.

This process could get sped up by impeaching the president through a resolution and could even continue when he's out of office. The goal there would be Tobar, the president from ever holding office again.
