"jose ortiz" Discussed on Blinkers Off
"If you run a forty five half it least every month the league you know because after that i think you're gonna over correct if anything In this spot. I definitely i definitely think he can get that pharaoh trip if you wanna talk about that where he can run the half and forty eight east eastbound himself in the half those and forty eight. I think we're all going to be looking at each other like well. He's gonna be really tough to be a bit is raining forty eight. You've got to think that you're gonna have hot rod right on his throat. You're going to have hot rods kind of the key because you know how it's going to be right so quality will be right there on. Yes he should be close in the the worst from japan the we don't i don't even count because i just i just think he's i don't think he'll play a factor Nuts steve we don't know yet As far as who's gonna ride note agenda the report that would say paul. Maybe going to let us know that they're expecting announcement tomorrow. Probably probably was literally isn't so we're hoping tomorrow we know right. I read comes out of the tunnel. There's like smoke around. Notre jumped up on why. That's a good question. Though iran. we talked about it a little bit before show right. What do you do tomorrow guys on. Thirteen mounts. he's fantastic writer. And there's one getting forces that you have to take that into the equation and me. This is the worse all all day tomorrow. The horse i think is affected the most by a jockey. Change is not gentle iraq. Find the boarding yoke different horse. He's got a great job. I off the contract was still great. Young host one. He finished strong he was there. I'd like the worst yo to use. Definitely maybe in third other for sure. Now i don't even like you say three straight with with iran and Y'all we you know. We used him underneath Because he's a horse eyesores for a young. If you guys probably know remember one the biggest source of his race also. I didn't but i'm glad i did now. Because you're right. I mean i who's it going to be like s llano. Maybe this pletcher or jose ortiz of the two main contender now. Jose ortiz surprisingly does not have long. Now there's only eight horses so that that's on huge surprise but yeah that's the two main contenders as i think david renting Tweeted that those are the two that are most likely to give. Yeah and given it its brother makes does alia now Let's see who athenee longshots out. And i guess overtook or you're kind of both fletcher's both horses that One one finished third of the peter pan one finish thirteen in the kentucky. Derby wood memorial robotic wanted a huge price. Take any of these courses seriously Even if it's like a dry play or something now but it's the belmont right. So you wanna play overtook underneath. I wouldn't i wouldn't talk you out of it because the belmont always usually always usually always has a horse in the top three radio. I don't know where that came from. You know so is personally. Don't take him serious. But if you wanna throw a crazy in there. I i certainly wouldn't you off of it. I i love like as much as you're comfortable playing a straight exact on a wall. The overhaul ride like just pound the shit out of it. Because i just think those horses are going to run the race. They're gonna go to i. Guess if you're feeling you really like hot rod reverse it. But i just feel like those horses like is a field of eight. So you've got to horses that you need to finish top two out of the aids and through the easily the two most consistent as far as you know at the end of the day you're gonna get that run but the good not good enough or not you know you'll seek and they run down rocker. Rocker minoza your unknowns. Of course but i just feel like those are the ones you can count on the most. I love those as an executive i. Okay i'm not as compensator straight exact. But i am confident. That essentially ball in hot runner going to make up the try right and then it's just finding that another horse we play. Well north. See that by the guy if you want to play. But i am really hardy man awkward. I am really black listened. Somebody's got to pay for my lap dance inning. Meaning it'd be paul but she said something but anyway. I am really confident that those horses are so on saint page. I am competent. They're going to run the races. So you're you're unite both on each you. Yup paul Land on to win in the race off. I undertake cow rocket love on that bureau. Bo- you're you're you're just think it's too good. I think you're going to get the one. I don't think he's gonna make at sixty one. I think you're getting five one soon. N if you look at the rest of the card the aggressive part has chance to chalk out somewhat break races horses. Thank you everything. Is there for that horse. The one he's gonna go to france. If you think about charlie last time outlawed for every one louisiana derby a liar who was on it. Those are you does on rock the world. So he's gonna know they look at the same things we know Chance probably has be heard saying reason. You frustrated rock-n-roll in this race. Is you wanna love to seeing hot rod. Charlie out front wire right exactly. Rosario is gonna know that would be the green with the frat on blah so with arias to go and i think erin. You're right whether it's a forty five in change half. He has to be enrique fast to me if he's on the lead and this is a race. That historically is not closures race. So it's gonna and that's why i think it's gonna come down to one of those those three to each world i don't take your rock-n-roll because i think he's going to be on. Leave any separately best price. I think people like you and really anyone. Even if you're hoffman. Whose nestling quaint against so to speak or at least you're gonna know top the turn whether we're right arar is he executive he's a you'll have an idea like okay. This is tough to catch right now..
Racing Without Gambling
"I'm guessing you've heard of the Kentucky Derby Abi to this race that's run usually early in May we haven't yet talked about the Kentucky Derby this year but that's about to change as we're finally starting to get into rounds of prep races that will winnow the field down to twenty for the run for the roses on May the second so to help us do that. We bring in voice. We haven't heard on this show for too long and and that's Jonathan Listener who writes for horse racing nation. Welcome back Jonathan. So before we get into a few specific horses. WHO's impressed you the most so far on the triple triple crown trail? I think Dennis moment to start the list. Dentists moment strikes to lead right at the top of the stretch at Delta. Two lanes lead our three lately for the final final furlong. Dennis this moment with five length lead scabbard with clear sailing up the second but Dennis moment kicks off the road at the Kentucky Derby in a big way. He barely moved a muscle. That we we have it. RESTRAINING NATION DOT COM user generated Kentucky Derby contender rankings and despite his trouble that experience career dentist moment has not left that number. One spot. You talking about a grade three winner. Who was going to be the favourite the Breeders Cup Juvenile L. Stumbles out of the gate? You know he could be undefeated if you look back at his debut he lost his jockey was really no fault zone so he has the two losses and between between them. He's sandwich to really really nice. Looking victories including his debut at Ellis Park they won by like nineteen and a quarter lengths. I think it was so there's a lot of potential there and he's one that I feel like every once in a while you hear about a derby prospect before they make their debut and then we kind of latch onto them I wanna say it was probably roadster roadster last year because Baffert said he could be his next justify American Farrow and obviously it didn't work out there but they'll Romans has talked up Dennis's moment since before he he ran a race. And so we're we're kind of going to the same thing here As far as a couple of other runners eight rings also out of the Breeder's cup juvenile. He's a really interesting. One didn't really run his race. You know the last time we saw him but I think the way he's going to be handled this season. You have to keep paying attention trained by Bob Baffert. He's he's GonNa run him in the rebel at Oaklawn. And then the Arkansas Derby potentially there as well and then another one that you know kind of on the fence about that you know. He's got a lot of towns. Is Max `field scratched from the Breeders Cup Juvenile. He had a little bit of an issue. There it turns out we found out a couple of weeks after that that he had had a minor surgery for a bone chip. But he's not even in serious training now. Well he's he's he's apparently galloping No works yet and so I think they'll have to do the to A. Ah kind of schedule where you hope to get race out of them and then you have a more serious race which I would expect to be something like the blue grass stakes if everything works out well and he's undeniable town. I'm and I think he's GonNa win a major race somewhere down the road. I don't know if it's going to be the Kentucky Derby and then the other one I feel like it's gotten all the conversation is independence hall at at Independence Hall now makes his move. Independence Hall is the leader getting away to lead by two prints of Pharaohs has moved up on the outside. It's Bourbon Bay Independence All L. linked and a half as they come for the quarto prints of Pharaohs on the outside Bourbon Bay. It is independence hall with the lead and now a furlong to the finish Jose Ortiz showing them the whip now goes to work on independence hall. WHO has a three likely? Just a sixteen to the finish at. It's the constitution called Independence Hall. Tailwind Jerome by four Knights won the national stakes by open links came back and won the jerome. It was a little more workmanlike. But he's going to go. Oh into the new year here as another one of the favorites and if I could talk about one more that has sort of attracted my attention a little bit. It's this ancient warrior horse. I don't know what his path is going to look like. He's Jerry Hall android or for trainee. And if you follow racing at all the last year or so. You'll know that. He's SORTA become embattled. Dan from the strike. Group's tracks out in California But I of all these horses that have won maiden races and we'll be going to the stakes. I want to watch that one closely. He's moved him over to Oakland Park. We should see him in an allowance. Race coming up at the beginning of February and then from then on he should be on the Derby trail else. That's one that that I definitely want to see more of well. You mentioned Bob Baffert. And it's tough to talk about the Kentucky Derby Trail Without Bob Baffert and he has a lot more than the one you mentioned. There's thousand words who ran a big race in the low sal futurity. I'm a Roger Federer Fan but you have to give it up for an doll who is also ambassador trainee. Who looked really really good? So I mean you know Bob Baffert certainly knows how to get horses to the Derby mean how many of these prospects aspects of pan out. I see a path for all of them. To be honest. You know and we also have mentioned authentic. It's still authentic coming to the three the eight ball. He's been in control throughout leads by a length and a half to uncaptured hero. It's all authentic as they pass the quarter pole and turned for home authentic and complete Khaliq Command turning it on. He's in front by sex with a furlong left to go. Zimba Warrior and Assault Coast as authentic is putting on a show. Here is a little green gene shifting about but long gone authentic strolls home in the sham. He'll win by about eight lakes green. It's Grafton stretch and just kept going there and another extremely impressive Horse Nidal I. I wonder about him a little bit. You know we've only seen him one time on Sunday and that six and a half for a long race he he looks like Dortmund Ortmann if you go back to two thousand fifteen big horse. That wasn't extremely fast out of the gate but once he got into stride he went straight to the pace and never really let up there. Yeah it's not not really the kind of horse you want to win the Derby but I think you could get to the Derby and then thousand words certainly has every reason to move forward his last race. I think they had probably a little bit the too much blinker on him and he ended up going head to head with that no door that ran in the Breeders Cup juvenile second. I think it's SORTA legitimize both of those horses that they ran so closely in the future. But I think thousand words is probably at least a couple of lengths better then a no door. He just probably didn't see him in the stretch until Flavian Kinda guided him out and it's like Oh with the blinker. The horse realized he had something to run against a win on. So I guess when you talk about horses that I'm looking at in the new year. Thousand Words is definitely on that shortlist list to Jonathan Listener of racing. Nation is with us here on the gate. We've talked a little bit about the Breeders Cup juvenile which was a topsy turvy race. You had three big horses that we've mentioned into all had their problems that day. We haven't talked about the horse. Who Wanted Storm the court for trainer Peter Martin and that would be a very popular win in the racing business? As you know what chance do you give storm the court to back up what he did in the juvenile. Oh probably not much not a lot of black type in the family. I'm not sure if there's any black type from Stanley I'd agree wise. And then you know he was obviously the beneficiary of other horses stumbles in that race You Know He. He goes gate to wire was not really pressed a whole lot and at the same time. I think they took the blinker. They put their blinkers on. I'm sorry and I have not a fan of lemon. That put blinkers was on a horse at that point in their career. I feel like you should be taken them off so that they can relax. Prepare to go a little bit longer. I think that race and the circumstances just all all came together for storm the court and allowed him to upset that race. It's forty five to one. Whatever he ended up that day I'm sort of in agreement? I think with everybody else that the the the better Derby Derby prospect was no door and second in that race going forward. I want to mention because these races have just happened. Enforceable label for Mark Cassie. Who is not missed? A beat after a son norm went out on his own. He had been his father's chief assistant and enforceable. Really good winning the Lecomte. But we haven't seen too many Lecompte winners. Go on to run well in the Kentucky Derby. Where do you put me as a tap it colt out of a dixie union in marriage? The breeding is good. I put him a really high on my list. As far as forces will be in the Derby but I would not put him on my list of forces that I think can win the Derby and I say that because of his running style you know if we go back to almost every year that the point system has been effect and obviously gets rid of those pure your sprinters. It's the horses that can put themselves near the front at the beginning of the race and keep that pace up and never be caught by closers that tend to win the Derby enforceable enforceable is one of those closers. It's inevitable that he's GONNA run into traffic problem you know. I almost hope he sneaks into the Derby and everybody overlooks. Because I feel like he's the kind of horse could come into the super factor. That's probably going to be a really common line of thought. Though I mean I'm thinking a few months out but the soup perfect You know in the era of a favorites winning the Derby is as remain because it's pretty high minimum of really profitable wager for people nonetheless so yeah for me. He's a super effective player. I I I think he's GonNa be okay as the distance is longer obviously is a full brother Mohammed and a half years day. There's a lot there in the pedigree just really impressive on paper and it was good to see him run as well as he did you know He. He broke his maiden at nine furlongs last summer at Saratoga and it looks like okay. Here's a real two year old and I you know he ran into you. Go into a little bit shorter and the breeder security at keeneland and Max field because two things came together and got him beat but he's definitely better horse than he showed that day and it was good to see him back it up the trump
Thousands in Puerto Rico without power after earthquakes
"The recent earthquakes importer Rico have caused widespread power outages on the island leaving thousands of residents without electricity and while the power authority says it's restored electricity to around ninety six percent of the population intermittent outages remain the damages particularly severe in the southwest where officials say it could take more than a year to repair a major power plant in the region and but it bother Porter Rican electric power authority has been in crisis for years dealing with crumbling infrastructure frequent power outages and bankruptcy and that's why some community organizations like the Porter Rico community foundation are taking matters into their own hands they've started installing micrograms in low income areas after hurricane Maria Nelson Cologne the president of the organization says they've already completed for projects serving sixty four communities Weber whole land was global back in those for a proud day war powers by solar so they didn't have one day of corruption they didn't have any major style and they keep moving forward under former governor regardless say you'll Porter Rico had made an ambitious commitment to get one hundred percent of its energy from renewable sources like solar by twenty fifty but since Rosales resignation last summer those plans remain uncertain I'm joined now by Michael diapered an author and journalist based in San Juan and Sergio marques watch a policy director for the center for new economy also in San Juan thank you both for joining us thank you Michael you've been reporting on the aftermath of last week's earthquake tell us what the infrastructure looks like in the places that you visited so far I mean it's striking really I mean particularly in Quantico which was I would say the community most of your he hit on the south and the ironically also with the US military first landed in eighteen ninety eight when they when they invaded Puerto Rico you you have pretty widespread destruction and I would say the population as well you know there's quite a bit of of collapsed buildings and very few people still actually living in the in the center of the city a lot of people have moved elsewhere or living in you know make shifter temporary accommodations what is the power situation like in that region in the southwest part of the island I think it's come back in in some places but so many people are living in such kind of improvised accommodations I mean I don't think a lot of people have regular access to the fruits of electricity as there is you're used to having when they're living in their own homes and of course prep service can be somewhat spotty in normal times so to speak so that's been something that's been an ongoing problem even before the earthquake Michael you mentioned but I by which is the Porter Rico electric power authority there been calls for the executive director Jose R. tease to resign that's been hash tag Jose Ortiz great noon see ya tell us about that where does that stand I mean I think people are are pretty upset with his performance in an interview he said that you know he was called to lead prep and he didn't send the CD and anyone which I think gave a not really great impression to people about his attitude towards the crisis Sir your what it where his famous stand I mean we know they've had a spotty record with that the island so far since hurricane Maria are they able to repair the grid Congress actually appropriated two billion dollars just after you Ricky Maria twenty seventeen and they were your market specifically to modernize the grid that money unfortunately has not been disbursed yet deferral garment I don't know if it's for you must fault if it's the office of management and budget but something you definitely is holding up the money in Washington DC so you don't last may we said put Rico announced a very ambitious plan this is under governor because but our CEO who since stepped down after protests mounted on the island he set out an ambitious plan to get all of the islands electricity from renewables by twenty fifty what progress has the island made since then unfortunately very little approximately around five percent of all the electricity produced and put a recall right now comes from regal sources it's going to be very difficult to reach that target at this space we need of prep and the private sector to start investing a lot more aggressively in this renewable sources or otherwise we're just probably gonna miss it at all and not just the deadline I mean Sir do you do you think that this is ultimately a solution for these infrastructure issues given that there been natural disasters like hurricane Maria like the earthquakes going forward well it would certainly help as as we listened to doctor call on it he did mention that you know those communities that have access to many greats that were connected to solar panels did not suffer an outage and and that's the whole point I mean we're trying to change the system from a centralized system where you have five or six big units around the island to a lot of smaller generation capacity heated in many points across the island so when we have an earthquake say you want to go which is in the southwest part of the island these girls for example doesn't have to suffer a complete outage we mentioned that since oversee your has stepped down and there's been a lot of change importer Rico not just said natural disasters but also politically one bass was is the new governor of the island and she's got a new administration is their political will Sergio to continue to push for solar at that level that's going to be an interesting question Mrs basket is is from the same party as going across the yellow so in theory she would not have any political constraints in terms of pushing forward however she hasn't been very clear as to what your plan is going forward and of course we have elections in November so that could change everything Michael when you talked to residents of the island have been affected by this most recent wave of earthquakes our people all talking about solar energy directly are they talking about what one to Vasquez's saying or not saying or or are there concerns much more basic than that I think one thing is that people feel like they've been extremely battered in recent years but these natural disasters and it's really you know kind of rocking them back on their heels yet again and I think you know one thing that a lot of folks on the ground here is that they're just wondering I think English perhaps the state as a whole could be a little bit more responsive to their needs I think a lot of people may be feel that you know that the political parties in San Juan and it's an interesting figure that I always remembers that like seventy percent of the energy importer Rico I think it is is created in the south of the country and the usage is seventy percent of the north so it's kind of with this reverse relationship that places have and I think a lot of these people who don't necessarily feel like the political actors in in San Juan in the capital or really necessarily advocating for their interests all the time so here we've seen that to that point that some communities have decided to take the situation into their own hands and build their own solar power networks without government help how common is it for folks to do that and how effective is it it became a big part of the solution if you will just after here in my area because they were communities as you know that where without power for almost a year after the year Ricky so there there was a lot of interest mostly from the private sector and NGOs to try to get some independence from the government owned you know electricity company and there has been some success in terms of getting electricity many greats in some of the most isolated communities but we still have a long ways to go it's not a a hundred percent solution right now given that you know solar powers and agreed that we have it's really old so the greed will have to be modernized in order for poor regal to really scare up to the goals that were set up by gore and offers a yellow but it's it's a good start and also as I mentioned earlier we're still waiting for a significant amount of money that will be used to rebuild it read which is an essential component of reconfiguring the whole electricity system yeah Sergio marques watches the policy director for the center for a new economy and Michael divert as an author and journalist based in San Juan thanks to you both I
Early Thoughts Before Pre-Entries
"Gossip Good Morning Good Morning Steve. How're you doing good to be back home glad to whatever you want you know it's open open mic DOC whatever is ready and of course you follow gusts through everybody's followed gusts forever from day one on at the races and got a couple of plays maybe for the weekend gus but some some early thoughts before pre entries as we look Toward Cup it's always talked before pre entries but breath just looking at the races exciting exciting racist to get excited about it I think cameras just said I think the sprint and the dirt mile probably the two right now but I mean we have three solid juvenile's with noon Dennis moment eight rings and and Max Bill which I think three of those are very quality horses and just looking to see how these fields shape up but I mean I'll see you know some great opportunities in those fourteen racist for sure what we haven't obviously we haven't had a chance to talk anything on a consistent basis but what do you like to do when it comes to terms of a ticket structures and and focus in how many how many multi-race wagers which one's the utilize the most I'll tell you what you know you get these big fields I had the most success with exactly is in doubles to tell you the truth sometimes simple the up keep it simple and You get I mean you get a lot of value and those plays with the you know arch fields in and actually pick a couple of wide open races I usually focus on that I do tickets with the you know the picked force and I like to find at least one single maybe to deepen the other one and maybe spread that's what I kind of look forward definitely a single though in the pick four pick five I definitely need one host but I think even the pick threes you know the pick threes are they paid handsomely in the last few years as well but I think people you know who spoke with the exact in the doubles I mean you can get some real value if you if you got a good opinion onto racist back to back you can get paid well and we were in fact last week with Jeff Siegel this came up and when I was asking Jeff about his preparations and when it comes to the a ticket building and and we'll remind everybody that as much time as we spend handicapping the gotta spend a hundred percent the maybe not maybe not practical to spend as much time building the tickets but there's gotta come a point Wednesday Thursday where you you've got a pretty good idea of of the horses you're going to key around take a break from I'm from the handicapping and put pen to paper and write down the your perspective wagers and budgeted out and and you know take a look at the you know once we get the announcement I think it's on the twenty third by the way runs day the twenty third will be the race order official order announcement the Breeders Cup has a tendency to the tinker with it based on on the way the field size shape up you know look at that structure highlight the spots where you've got your strongest opinion and then back up on either side of those strong opinions if you're a mother erased player and you know we keep suggesting you know if you if you typically pick four player okay fine you're going to play your series of fake force but this is where you take a step back to and play more pick threes and the doubles and I I I think it's advice that I try to drive home every single u a year that you you don't WanNa have some of your best ideas the horses that end up winning that you had a good feel for an and then you didn't cash because there's some upset in the third or fourth leg of a pick four and you you didn't leverage your good idea as strongly as you might have oh I totally agree with that you know like you said once the the race orders come in just pick your spots we have your strongest opinions and then you go from there I mean that's I mean horse players nightmare there were your your ten to one shot twelve the one shot comes in and then you're single maybe a three to one shot you know doesn't come in the last leg and you didn't have anything on on on your your strongest opinion the price that's that's tough pill does Walla sometimes no doubt gusts will obviously you know get a chance to direct people toward you and and the analysis at at Brisbane that and Talk Again Cup Week maybe you know pick out a a a spot that you know the to discuss what what he did complain of of late how much keeneland action you taking it definitely on the weekends for sure and dabbling a little bit during the week I mean some great racing the weather's been fantastic and big fields they're coming to an end here this weekend but got a couple of plays today actually Keelan let me here let me let me see got hold on I got the where's where's my keeneland Friday Thursday AK with Saturday I keep the Friday about what's going on down believable there's so much there's so many things here did you play Gulfstream yesterday by the way did you play the pick five thing a little bit I did I did and got knocked out pretty early believe it or not you would not price horse which is Kinda it'll happen yeah oh yeah it was over quick so it's pretty full paid well for me though for the for the amount of low prices that were that were at three was a signal and the third leg so I know it's funny that that was the that was the horse that gave the opportunity to to to tip toe to turn it into a pick four but yet I do get the sense a lot of people got tripped up either on the in the first leg or the last leg where the two spots we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA get the one side of the other well let's talk about Qinglin go ahead what are you got today seven just my best friend today force MS coming out of the Woodbine Mile Bill Seventy eight to one mile with a chaining hill started the outside somehow he he maneuver beautifully coming into the turn but down the stretch is totally got shut off had nowhere to go I thought he had nice I made a move just didn't have enough to go this horse has been running good all year up at Woodbine five draws the five here which is which is ideal nine to two is very fair price is a loaded racist could be a stakes race disallowance this allowance race but I like plot I think he's going to get a good trip there's enough speed in front where he's going to be right in stock and right behind I mean he's faced some nice horses I think this is the time to to get in this at somewhere of now ninety two would it be beautiful if we can get that and I think we will because you know the outside you have a few horses that are going to take some money especially Colin Road for for Michael Maker Jose Ortiz that was gonNA take somebody coming out of ah graded great three but ms I think is the wholesome and a key on all over in in starting reporter and race seven and Connor Murphy for whatever reason Connor Murphy does not does not draw money and wins I mean he wins plenty does a good job interesting to see Mark Glatt come to keeneland souter shows up here yet pick source interesting ski Churchill last time kind of finished pretty decent but it's a nice horse was nice races earlier in the year so and you got Roselle Rosario on board into feature the feature very nice race today again the the greatest Devali view fulfilled I think by horses winter sunset four eight to one on the morning line think might get a couple of clicks down I mean she's versatile I don't know if she wants to go nine furlongs I think she kinda flattens out at nine furlongs the mile amount of sixteenth which is I think this is her her best distance coming off a win at Indiana ground at any grant she's got a nice post and she's just a nice trip there there's some speed lined up to the inside I think she can get I run and I mean the twelve is going to be flying late this lady the prince a lot for Baltistan she's eight to one I think she comes down from that I can see here making a big move middle of course coming down the lane but winterson that's it for me eight to one would be great I think she gets I run on on on the closers and should sit a nice trip there again for channing hill it's now and Bhartiya earlier to Mardi landed on winter sunset yeah I'm not sure what the price I think she might down from Chad you've got to chat horses that are Ya Chad takes money like you you saw yesterday focus group was was really over bet yeah I like him but it's too crazy I'll tell you what I have a bomb in the second race so a bomber I'm GonNa take just fly the one horse abstinent for Ian Wilkes make third start first time on on the turf going to turns Bravo Bravo couple of wins from six starts the meat this horse broke the last couple of times I starts his career broke out think the inside post and Bravo might be able to as well she's fifteen to one in the morning line you might get fifteen twenty to one hundred Meta take a flyer on her and also gotTa pick for tonight at down coming

"Welcoming Jose Ortiz who is a native of Puerto Rico and his one more than nineteen hundred races in what has been just a a stellar career and that career still going strong and he's with me now here on H. R. N. Jose Good Morning My friend Mike give having yeah. Thanks for taking a little time. I know you're a busy working horses. This morning. Never ends does it does not if you want to be the best which right now you certainly are my friend Brendan. You know it's interesting. I mentioned being a native of Puerto Rico one of the jockeys who mentored you when you came here and one of the people that you looked up to is his hall of Famer Johnny Velazquez who last week set the record for most greatest stakes victories by jockey in the history of the sport and that has to make you very proud. I know that yeah yeah we are happy about it and it keeps going throwing you know hopefully he can give winning some more on winning out much again until you know until heater dyers what makes him so good then you got a lot of these. Atlanta for the sport and I think that having taken to the next level where he's been for awhile you know yeah he certainly he's been doing it for a long time and still doing it at a very high level. How many great stakes victories are you behind him now. I don't know I have made the way to go yeah one day well that win yesterday and the Phoenix was impressive. This is a horse. You've you've been on before you knew him. You get back aboard him yesterday and he's able to hold off Whitmore who was putting in that late run. Take me through the race Jose. Well we broke. We broke very good. expect expecting a much faster pace but they did in in came out of five dollars. I thought they would and I was able to be closer than I than I thought. I was going in two weeks so I think that well We have a very pain trip when I ask him to. Well what they're for me the whole time. You know he's a horse worse by intimacy if that when you were riding him last year and even this year at Saratoga he was trained by Chad Brown now he's trained by Steve Asmussen. Ah when you were riding him before he was always knocking on the door but he couldn't quite get past horses like promises fulfilled you yesterday you beat him and everybody everybody else. Is there a difference. Did you feel something different now with engage than you did last year. He always been a ah very nice or worse. I think some more mature before others on. I think he'd take a while but I think he finally figured out you know. Did you know that Moore was gaining on your yesterday. I didn't knew what Whitmore Kabaya fell somebody coming out. You can tell yeah I could yeah. Did you know you had enough left in the tank. He very game he always has been and I knew what GonNa try but you know something this all horrors you know he's just turned four so there's all live orders season and they are very good. You know they they come in. They coming at you like wait Marino. He's very nice or you know that win. In the Phoenix was part of a Multi Win Day on opening day of Keeneland then you you've had several days in your career where you've won multiple races like that. I asked you what makes John Velazquez so good. What makes Jose Ortiz so good. I don't let somebody out of that. Answer that question. I guess right to be myself on gave that horses the best chance to win but you also worked very hard I mentioned you're out working in horses this morning. I know you're being humble and and that's what's part of makes you part of. What makes you so good but Jose you work your tail off and put me the in in the saddle with you for minute if you will if I can use that term take me through like your routine in your approach to riding races. How do you get ready to go out there. Every day and ride was everything star on the when the overnight comes up so I have to see we shorts on on quantum there I go the R F and and they got the raises and I put him whatever I think they should be and you know I have to talk to a trainers on and follow their their instructions but at the same time I want to I want her to be relax and that's that's what I try to be happy and I think they control and relaxed. We'll give you a running the end of it yeah you know. Johnny will always tell tell me about his different plans that he has going into the starting gate the plan a plan b the Plan C. and you hope you don't have to get any further than that but once the gates open you can listen to the trainers instructions all day long but once the gates open things can change quickly right very quickly. What do you you do at that point. Do you say Oh my God. I gotTa follow his instructions or do you say I just gotTa. Let my instincts takeover in and try to ride this race the way it needs to be ridden now so you've got to let your instincts they over because it's very tough to execute a plan when their plan doesn't work from from the gate you know. Yep You gotta change everything so I think you just gotTa Julia uh-huh. Yeah everything you could do everything changes in and you just have to adjust and that's why I've always said you know jockeys in terms of there's always that debate are jockeys true athletes athletes and I think you know I've said for years but pound for pound jockeys the most gifted athletes that we find in all sports and I have no doubt about it and you're certainly right there Jose. Let's talk about the horses that you're going to be aboard today. You're in all of the great stakes races at keeneland which is to be expected matter of fact.

Horse doesn't need to be on the late which is very helpful full on way like junkets. Today we think is very life so right to win all right and then in the next race in the TC a talked to me and I think I'm saying that name correctly but talk to me the horse. You're going to be aboard there. You've been aboard her. The the last two starts second last time out in the Press Kyle downes master stakes on September sixteenth. Tell me a little bit about her. It's very nice to write very easy last time. She has run very very very good. we are expecting seeming to or better than last two times.

How much different is it run getting more like we do every day. You know saying Kinda you you know over same thing by Kentucky different. Go Up and down left right so I think in Kentucky and it's all about the horse like it you WanNa be okay. It doesn't like nothing you can do about like well.

Hotshot Anna Scores Second Consecutive PID Masters
"The race last night and we will talk the the Dick Powell so I won't put do put too much into because we'll talk about it with Dick but you Robertson congratulations to him this hotshot Anna I mean she just it was an as she pleased victory sixty five and just you know I couldn't have been couldn't one easier super super impressive hotshot Anna two years in a row. Oh Talk to me as as we talked with the with Doug she ran very well and the Topeka certainly didn't didn't hold her back. Jose Ortiz come into town to ride and really had no had no answer her when China just cruised up under a Ardo and one how about the log on the board running a mammoth race the rudy the colts neck at the Horse George Duarte these are Concordia visit accordia under Julia Toledo. Although third at sixty three to one didn't do a whole lot I try though because a little bit got it up to eighty seven dollars eighty seven thirty for a buck and it boosted the try because Regal Chan Tim Ham source gotta get a hold of Tim him it timmy hung in in Ohio and kept Breeden Ohio breads and saw things through who well before there was even any hope that gaming would come to Ohio and he does a very good job and is it. He's got started partnered up the at a lot of horses and I think I saw three chimneys to these got the some horses with breath powwow really didn't take the pizza that didn't really work for her so doc hotshot. Anna moves on the trap shot five year old. She's now with record is Gaudy that this point eight hundred over eight fifty fifty thousand and she's one ten of twenty two starts tremendous. I'm a fan
"jose ortiz" Discussed on Daily Racing Form
"Ridden to victory by Jose Ortiz the pedigree she's by go sap route of a distorted humor mayor named Magical World Ninety two by or one on thirteen pace adjusted time form U._S. rating one fifteen raw number for time form U._S.. For Point of Honor Ninety one buyer one thirteen pace adjusted time formulas rating one fourteen raw number for her. This was an interesting race for a number of reasons. <hes> Guarani gets out there sets what I think are soft fractions for this level and at this distance <hes> twenty four and one forty nine into for a half thirteen and two or three quarters they stopped the clock and forty nine and three. She's out there on the front. Yes she's taking token pressure pitcher but affiliate of this quality should just be able to go on with it and she did just that. I found it interesting that she ducked out pre significantly when she was hit left handed by Jose going down the lane now. I don't know to me anyway that signifies that she he was tired. I think she's still green Kim my she. This is our third lifetime. Start her first time going to turns probably the first time she even felt stick left-handed because when you take a look and see usually in an instance like that I'd be looking for a horse to hop back door left lied or I'd. Looking at the final eighth of a mile to see her slowing down significantly that wasn't the case <hes> the final eighth she came home and twelve forty nine compared that to a horse point of honor who came home in twelve thirty two so yes point of honor was finishing better but it's not as though it was coming to a crawl she didn't changed leads back to her left which is to be a positive sign. I think she just green figuring things out now having said all that I don't know that I love her going out to a mile and a quarter. I don't know that the Alabama is a race that would be just chomping at the bit to go and bet her on the flip side of horse. It's like point of honor. I would be all in on that because when you look at the way this race was run. Yes it was a relatively tight field so how far back when she you know when it was all said and done but point of honor came from last was wide going around the first turn she's about three or four paths wide out in the clear a compare Goran who was on lead setting off fractions glued to the rail basically throughout in the fact that point of honor came out. I mean when Goran drifted out there under the left-handed urging. I don't WanNa say the point of honor had to stop running or she had to take up but you know she was. Definitely you can see a little bit of a movement there so she acknowledged that the Philly came out into her. I thought she finished really well into me with Gal about you. Combine all that put it all together. I think point of honor to me is a prime win contender already for a race like the Alabama hopefully she gets there and everything seems okay mile and a quarter that seems right in her wheelhouse Gore on. I'm not suggesting she can't get it but I do wonder if this sort of distance if this is going to be her bread and butter a mile an eighth you know a mile those type races so I don't know what the connections will choose to do. If I were involved in against the only thing I can do in an instance like this. I talked about with maximum security. If I were involved just my two cents Fi were involved with Goran I would probably wait for erased. The CASTILIAN runaround Mile Sixteenth at parks degrade one just continue to add that to the resume and you know that a mile and an eighth is going to be within her scope she can get that and that's the Breeders Cup distaff is run at there aren't racist. This is really run at a mile and a quarter of really giant significant races at a mile and a quarter for for fillies and Mares. I get at the Alabama I get it the Delaware Handicap but really other than that there's really not a heck of a lot. That's run it those sort of distances anymore so I just I don't know what they're really is to gain by running around a mile a mile and a quarter and writes like that because she's realistically not going to have to run it those sort of distances a mile and an eighth of if the distaff is your goal runner anorexic the Castilian slight turn back get a little bit more to turn experience and then decide does she need one more prep before the Breeders Cup distaff or you content just training her up to it you know the two terms is an issue you know she has the ability to sit or go. That would just be the way that I would approach and on the flip aside with point of honor I would just be saying I don't care who shows up the mile and a quarter is going to be my friend. The Alabama is my race to win. As far as the rest of the field is concerned. I spoke about it a little bit when we talked about this race and the preview show off topic Nice horse don't think she's quite as is good these other ones champagne anyone nice philly not a superstar okay. You know this race didn't work effort box. I don't think this is her surface. I think she's four so <hes> really just boils down to those top two horses and that's how it played out Gore on prevail she gets the job done answers the to turn question. I think she just a little bit green. Whether you agree or disagree let me know many video player on Youtube or on twitter at Bernier underscore Matt. I think her ducking out on left handed whip was just should not used to it. I think he gets a little bit more experience. It's going to turns. I think she'll be just fine. Gore on it gets the job done here with a ninety two buyer. A one thirteen pace adjusted time form U._S. rating in the C._C._A.. Oaks I'd like her to go to the CASTILIAN. I really want point of honor in a race like the Alabama a mile and a quarter so let's throw it into the stakes montage number of races to go over there. You've got racing from del. Mar monmouth would bind Saratoga you name it. It's all in there. We'll go over those when it come back. Some quick thoughts rapid fire then we'll go into the weekends best as far as buyers concerned. We'll wrap things up so here we go further ado sticks montage mu-chou unusual hope today extreme outside but running on the whole picture changes come hope Apache says gets delayed electron from Sarah Easter mu-chou unusual Joe Moot Jau unusual flying on the outside mu-chou unusual Apache predecessor got ahead. Take a boat show on usual great ride from Joel Rosario top of the line now and Catalina Cruiser E._S._p._N.. Back has to bring out audis best. Jerry.
"jose ortiz" Discussed on Thoroughbred Racing Radio Network
"You've got a very very deep strong riding county here but there have been a couple of guys that have just been writing at another level in junior being one of them. I've been so impressed rest with him. Obviously Joel The you know I read and Jose Ortiz Heavier Kesse. Johnny Velazquez has done everything there is to do as a writer all time winningest rider money one and he's still rides with an enthusiasm awesome net frankly is hard to keep up when you have very few mountains to climb sale right and and so to see him plying his trade watching Dylan developed my brothers writer Dylan Davis Villain has is really really put himself in the upper echelon riders and they've done it through hard work and so as a former writer you know doing this as a jockey's agent and with a guy that I feel fits in very well with this comedy. It's fun for me to watch a guy I I have such an appreciation for what I'm seeing and adding ridden with a incredible hall of fame colony through the eighties into the nineties.

Can I won the first two races of the meat we the early double and I was thinking about that yesterday. Dominic probably would be getting a kick out of Gary went into on opening day and I was happy for him. I thought the the car alright itself.

"I just had seen in. I was like, I don't I don't totally get it. She's fine. But I have a hard time imagining her winning this race. We'll guess what she came darn close. It was a big effort from her to come from the back of the pack. I feel like a digital distance the way that she finished here. Anyway. Is probably good for. But at the same time some of those other races. I looked at it and said she was just kind of moving up and down. So I still don't have a very good read on her. There's some ability here again, I thought it was a great ride from Jose Ortiz, midnight zoo, John Velazquez had the mount here, she was wide throughout, but I don't think that really cost or too much in the grand scheme of things. I'm not totally convinced that the rails where you wanted to be on the main track on Friday or Saturday and she finished with some interest. I still don't think this distance is ideal for I think she's better going shorter. Probably seven eighths of a mile. I think is best distance. She's going to remain in training. I don't think she can win any year end awards. I would still at least consider running her in the libra if she is all good and sound and ready to roll on opening day. At Santa Anita seven eighths of a mile an age restricted grade, one end you couple that again, you look at it strictly from breeding standpoint, she's already agreed one winner going longer. I'll be by disqualification winning that can tell you. But then all of a sudden if you could add a grade one sprinting just thing that helps her overall resume, I would personally if I had anything to do the horse. I would be pulling to race like that. If she is ready to go if not you put her away, and you bring it back for the big races next year as a four year old and blue prize. Luke prize honest for a minute there turning for home looked like she was involved with a big chance and she just flat out down the lane.

"She defeats wildcat who comes with a very very nice late finish for Jose Ortiz. At odds of six to one and midnight runs. Third at odds of five to one blue prize rounds at your super fact at odds of eight to one let's discuss monta Moi girl a little bit more. She is a three year old filly and she's done. Nothing wrong. This far she has nine of eleven lifetime. Eleven for eleven in the exact the only loss. One of them was last year is a two year old and one of them was that disqualification placing her second behind midnight zoo, just under three million dollars in career earnings owned by a whole slew of people dubbed monoploy stables LLC, the elk stone group LLC in Bethlehem stables trained by Brad. Cox spread by F PF LLC and Highfield ranch in Kentucky individual by flora is ruined. You can see the pedigree at the bottom of the horse-cart. She's by tap is our that have a Henny Hughes mayor named. Drumet- the flow gave her the perfect ride. But you know, what it is one of those things when you have a horse. Does this upwardly mobile you're going to work out a pretty darn good trip more often than not? But again, this is that trip. I keep going back in there's a theme. It's many of the best horses that we've had past five ten years. It's the American pharaoh trip. It's the justify trip. It's the wise Dan trips the Tappin trip you name it. It's the California chrome trip you go there. You can go to lead if it's given to you. It's the beholder trip. It's the Rachel Alexandra trip or yes, it just off target off their flank and really whatever you're ready to go. You go. She's really there's nothing to knock about her. She's really really strong. You look at some of the figures, perhaps they're a little bit on the light side for this staff. But in the grand scheme of things the ninety six by the one twenty two time formula's rating, I don't know that they they entirely tell the story here. I feel like I don't think she was ever going to lose this race when you watch to travel out there. And I think if they ran to run it again, I know out kept finished with the flurry. But I should say Maan girl was just much the best in there. And look I was trying to beat her because I looked at it and said Abel Tasman, I thought her best was better than anyone else's best. We'll get able to has been in a minute. We certainly didn't get her best Manuel girl. I again, really. I don't have anything to knock. She's just a professional. She goes out there. She gets done. Brad Cox biggest win of his career flurries zero. It's not the biggest one in his career. Boy, all the sudden flow in the past two years got a beautiful sort of resume put together here all those big three year old filly races that he's had with here with monoploy girl. You got the Breeders Cup Classic last year with a gun runner. You got a number. Of big grade ones gun runner really got a couple of nice horses over these past few years and good. He's a nice guy floor. I like him. It sounds like there's a possibility that runs in the Pegasus World Cup against the boys down at Gulfstream Park. At the very least the distaff would be a long-term type of goal in two thousand nineteen for her mama girl will be back. It's like four all going to be back wildcat likely to remain in training. I thought this was a beautiful ride from Jose Ortiz. The pace may not have been just really like smoking up front me consider Twenty-three in one forty seven to twelve for three quarters. So perhaps a little bit far back. But I liked the he just weaved through that traffic on the far turn angled or back down to the inside.
