"Perhaps late for a minor war, but I'm sort of against him in that race. And. I thought that that race with smile happy in the risen star that you mentioned it with epicenter. He was loose on the lead. I don't think he was going to beat him regardless. But I really thought watching that race and going back and watching the replay of the races are that Corey lantern just flat out just doesn't ride. Smile happy until he gets on the far turn. He basically just really tried the last three eighths of a mile. He really I thought finished pretty well. And what was going to be key after that race was just seeing through his works like kidding me P tighten the screws. He's got a 5 for on bullet. He's got a fast half mile, this is the race they're trying to win. So it wouldn't surprise me to see him run faster because he's going to just move forward off that resistance star. Look like both the second and third place finishers in that risen star did not have the greatest of trips, a smile happy in zanden. Turns out they show up against one another once again this time at Keenan, this Saturday in the bluegrass and they figured to be the two favorites in the wage ring. James, let's look back at one of the other big races from this past weekend, the marquee event at Oak Lawn park is the grade one Arkansas Derby where the three year olds went a mile in an 8th and it looked as far as what a lot of better thought to be coming out party if you will for the Philly secret oath trying the boys as she was sent off the 7 to 5 favorites she did not get out of the gate very well was much further back than she's ever been in her career made an eye catching move around the turn to the top of the stretch and then flattened out, but never really challenged cyber knife who was very impressive winning by almost three lengths. Yeah, he certainly was. And cyber knife was a little bit keen for the lead. So when they went by the wire, the first time he was four wide, all four horses across the track. But he angled in slightly and dropped back to fourth going into the far turn and really settled there until making a little bit of an early move on the backstretch. He went split horses, went up and engaged kavadh, who tried to battle back, but he had put him away by, you know, by the time they were like straightened in for home and spurted clear for, you know, by a couple of months and held it all the way to the wire. So considering, you know, he's a horse that, you know, when he ran in the earlier this year he ran 6, he really ran poorly. He had underachieved and lost a bunch of main races as the favored, has always trained well in the morning and then not run well in the afternoon. His last two races have been a big time improvement for cyber knife. And he's the type that looks like he could be a very productive three year old this year. The dead a little bit of a concern, Bobby. I will say the facts, the fact that that race didn't come back fast only in 94 speed rating, but cyber knife, he's got tactical speed, so he has something going from that perspective and, you know, even the runner up, you know, he's a horse that never wins seemingly Barbara roe, but he always gets a piece. And if you're playing like tries or supers in the Derby, he's got to be one you would consider. Those two both headed to Kentucky after their one two finish in the Arkansas Derby, the Philly secret oath could do no better than third. She's being rerouted back against Phillies in the Kentucky oaks. So I ask you this. We don't know the winner of the Santa Anita oaks yet a lot of us think that it will be a dare manner. Is secret oath still the favorite in the Kentucky oaks or is she just one of the favorites? You know, this was a question that we were talking about. And I do. I think she's gonna, even if a dare manner wins, I mean, she's only facing four horses a day or man or now I'm granted she could real run real fast doing so and that might change my perspective. But I think that secret oath is going to be a slight favorite over echo Zulu Kathleen O and I might be overestimating echo getting bet because maybe a lot of people will be trying to beat her at the distance, but I do think she's a candidate to take a lot of money and Kathleen O I think we'll get bet for sure and a dare manner as well as she impresses. I actually think as of now a dare manner has been the fastest Philly. I don't know what she's been beating. But I think as of now, she's the fastest one. I expect her to win on Saturday. And I think she'll be about two to 5 in that race. So I'm not really coming up with some genius idea right there. This is something I don't think any of us thought we would ever say. Tim yak teen has the has the favorites in both the San Anita Derby and the San Anita oaks. He does. He may have the fastest three year old Philly and the fastest three year old cult may. I'm not saying he does. He may. Yeah, and he's got like not only messier who could compete for favoritism in the Derby if he wins unless good. But he's got this taiba who's a little bit of a wall card at sanity the Derby. And then you're right, he's got two Phillies in the San Diego. It's interesting because all these guys have multiple races. There's 11 horses total, 5 in the oaks and 6 in the Santa Derby. And four trainers have all 11 of them. Tim yakin, Doug O'Neill, d'amato and Mandela. Yeah, certainly not the biggest fields we've ever seen. But still going to be fun racing and obviously big opportunities for those former baffert trainees to finally earn points on the road to the Kentucky oaks and The Kentucky Derby. And should mention this that they're going to need one, two finishes to guarantee spots in those races. I mean, adair manor is going to be one to 5 or two to 5 in that race. But it's not like she can run third and then run in the Kentucky yolks. Messier has to win or be second to have enough points to guarantee to run in The Kentucky Derby. So these races in addition to being a lot of money on their own and being very prestigious races in the grand scheme of things, you know, we've seen tremendous Santa need a Derby in San Diego oaks winters throughout the years. These are not just prep races. They need to perform well in these races to have any chance at the quote unquote bigger prizes a month from now. All right, we're going to take another break. When we come back, we'll look back a little bit at the Jeff ruby steaks and look forward to the three big three year old races this weekend. And of course, anything you'd like to discuss, phone lines are open, give us a call 888-966-4776 is the number. This is the bris net dot com call in show on HR.

"Twin spires weekend recap edition of the show and looking back at a busy weekend. Man, we talked about one race. In the first 20 minutes. And there's like 12 more races to talk about. So we might have to turn it over to her. I feel like every time there is, I'm doing it right now. Every time there's like a busy weekend recap, I feel like that's when I go on a tangent and talk about other stuff. Just to either torture myself and make myself rushed at the end or just because that's how I deal with these things. But let's head over to Oklahoma park where does vicar was say the sun always shines or it never rains at Oklahoma park. Well, it didn't rain and they had a nice day for their big day. The claim 60,000 intense, I don't know how to be fair and I'm sure I'm wrong about this, but I've been Oakland. It's good size, but I don't know where 60,000 people fit right there. 60,000 people is what is in a full NFL stadium. And I just don't see that at Oakland park. So I don't know. They always say that. Yeah, literally the attendance just says 60,000 like even on the charts. So first of all, we know that that is there wasn't exactly 60,000 people that showed up. I would take the under in a bet, and I'm sure some of my Oakland friends are probably mad at me for saying that, but I just, I don't see how it is possible. I know there's people in the infield and all that, but I don't know how it's logistically possible. And I'm sure that it's an approximation account because there's no way that it was exactly 60,000. 6 zero zero zero zero is what's on the chart. Divided by 2.7 million. What does that equal for handle? 40 bucks a person? And I know people bet on their twin spires app while you're there if you can. A lot of tracks kind of make it see you can't, but anyways, it was a good crowd. How about that? Good crowd at Oakland park for the big day. And the Arkansas Derby a field of 9 set to go the mile and 8th over the fast track $1.25 million and maybe more importantly. More importantly, than a $1,000,000.25 is Derby points. Secret oak ends up going off as your 7 to 5 favorite second choice we the people on the outside at two to one. For flavian Pratt and real per se. 5 to one on cyber knife, 7 to one doppelganger, Barbara rode once again, ten to one, just doesn't take a ton of money that horse. Doppelganger was a 7 to one. Let's take a listen back to vix doffers call. Of the Arkansas Derby. They're off. Good start. Kavadh and chasing time, a hard scent doppelganger, cyber knife is in the mix, and we the people could be 5 wide at the Clubhouse turn. Flavian Pratt will not have any of that he's gonna take him back and drop over. Then comes Barbara rode secret oath and onojo and the early trailer is Ben diesel. Around the Clubhouse turd. It is kavadh. He's a length and a half in front of chasing time and doppelganger. Doppelganger wanted the lead he's done no better than third early. Two and a half, two cyber knife, then comes we the people, secret oath is outside of him and outside of her as Ben diesel. Then a length two, the rebel winner uno Ho and Barbara road is between horses, only 6 lengths first to last. Up the backstretch in the 86th, Arkansas Derby kavadh is the leader. He's 5 furlongs from the wire and leads. Here's an early move from cyber knife. He's gonna split horses and be a joint second outside of chasing time. Doppelganger is four deep, and he's two from the front. Secret oath is last, leaving the backstretch. Then comes on oh Ho they round the far turn and kavadh has the lead, but cyber knife is right alongside. Now secret oath is unwinding. She's just gone from last up into third and look at this move from secret oath. She's within two of the lead. There's a quarter of a mile to run in the Arkansas Derby, cyber knife, has put away kavadh, but he has to deal with secret oath in the center, then comes Barbara road, a final furlong, cyber knife, here comes secret oath on the outside, she's still too late behind. Cyber knife secret oath is not gonna get by. The Arkansas Derby winner and his name is cyber knife. In front. So cyber knife lives up to the billing because the billing was, I feel like there was a lot of buzz about this horse has been for a little while. I know her, buddy, shap cap has been a cyber knife fan. I remember having him and we talked with him, we talked with Joe Christopher about cyber knife, as he came up, of course, from the fairgrounds in his last start. Last three starts. And so, you know, word was out and the 8 to one morning line did not last was bet down to 5 to one, just under 6 to one. He was 5 80 to one. But a couple things in this race. First of all, as you heard vik say, like going into the first turn, they really stacked up. Flavian Pratt looked like, right when Vick said it, flying started to try to drop back and drop over, but then he kind of didn't. He stayed out in the 5 path. And so I thought that was an interesting move. But the way it kind of set up, you know, they were going at a pretty honest clip 22 flat. They did slow it down and down the backstretch. And I wonder how much of that slowing it down aided in what maybe looked like an aggressive move by cyber knife. Perhaps they slowed it down a little bit and he just kind of kept where he was and that was how he got up into that hole because the move was aggressive and it was lauded afterwards, you know, I think in part because of the result was positive, right? The horse won..

"I like when we get to have folks on from some of these small tracks. I know there's often times people who a majority of you haven't heard of or interacted with. I know, of course, some of you have, especially folks who listen up in the northwest, but that's one thing I really like doing on this show from time to time. I mean, obviously, when you get big national name guests, it's a good thing, but I really, I love to get to speak with because there's so many great people at these smaller tracks and circuits who are believe me, just as invested monetarily, effort, love, passion, sweat tears, as anybody at the bigger levels. And we just don't hear very often from them. Appreciate that. And they're going to have different perspectives, different thoughts on things, and I appreciate that. So shout out doctor Jack good to talk to him and looking forward, of course, to what John Doyle going to join us tomorrow. Former NHC champ magic partner of optics, we're going to talk a fair bit of optics. We're going to talk a little bit of. But more so, the idea of the handicapping and stuff behind utilizing it and I feel like because I just did the interview before I'm taping this last segment of this show. But I feel like we use the optics discussion to have bigger handicapping discussions if that makes sense. So if you're not an optics user, you will still, I think, gain some hopefully good insights from him. Probably not many from me. But I look forward to that conversation. Do you want to talk a little bit about Arkansas Derby, which is coming up this weekend. It's kind of strange having this not be, you know, the last one. I'm so used to this being like the last big prep, right? Like it would normally be the April 9th prep, but I guess they moved it up. I don't know if it was this week or this year or last year, but I feel like it's almost always been the last weekend major prep. And then usually it's the Lexington right after that, but this year, it's in the earlier spot. It's 5 weeks out. And a secret oath certainly the attention getter uno obviously victorious in the rebel stakes secret oath has been incredible winning the Martha Washington, the honey bee. These are deeper waters. Talking about optics and stuff looking at the optics plot. She certainly looks to be in a pretty snug spot, but there's some other interesting horses in here. Certainly Barbara road has been extremely consistent. There's not, to me, it doesn't look like a lot of speed. I think kavadh down toward the inside is going to be sending. Similar was on the lead last time in the rebel stakes. What happens with cyber knife and we the people who I think are some pretty interesting horses? Well, we'll see, but yeah, I think it's secret oath obviously adds a lot to it because this is kind of been, you know, this has not been, I don't think the strongest year for this class in this division at Oakland. And, you know, we've seen obviously over the years, a lot of the best baffert horses have prepped there, I mean, American pharaoh comes to mind amongst others, but it's been a lot of years. A really salty group and to me, with the excitement about secret oath, obviously she adds to that. But also like, you know, I think she figures to have a legit chance. She certainly she's top on prime power. She's got an experience edge over a number of horses in here. You know, doppelganger for Tim yak teen who was with Bob Baffert. Coming off a couple of defeats to forbidden kingdom. Obviously won't have to chase that one around. Kind of curious to see where that one fits in terms of this race just because of, you know, trainer aside, I'm really curious how that gauges against what forbidden kingdom has been doing, 'cause I feel like for me personally, I've been dismissing forbidden kingdom a little bit just 'cause I mostly because of running style, which seems stupid because so often The Kentucky Derby it's rather, you know, it's rather favorable to be close up, right? Or to be on the lead. And so, but I guess he's just so on the lead and so quick early. You know, he's throwing up 22 and change. 45 and change going and I know standing need it can be fast. Going to mile and a 16th. You know, is he going to be able to keep going? Well, we'll certainly learn more as we get closer to the sanity of Derby. But I don't know. I feel like I've been pretty dismissive of him and a lot of it is just because of styles just because I don't see that happening in The Kentucky Derby. But I'm very curious to see kind of how forbidden kingdom's competition doppelganger does against this group, 'cause like I said, no offense. I mean first of all, we gotta get over needing to say that, right? I don't need to say that. I don't need to say no offense. If I'm critical of a group or something, it's just my opinion. And by the way, they could be more than happy to prove me wrong. Because if they prove me wrong, it means they ran huge in The Kentucky Derby. So they definitely want to do that. But, you know, Barbara road super honest type horse, right? Uno Ho has been decent and then won the rebel. I wasn't impressed with the rebel as a whole. But, you know, I guess these guys, I just don't see this as a very scary class. I mean, obviously cyber knife adds a little bit of intrigue and we the people add some intrigue coming in from cybernetic coming from fairgrounds, we the people has been here at Oakland, but we the people has that kind of zozo look coming into this race, right? He's been just trouncing quote unquote lesser competition. I mean, obviously jumping up to a grade one is different than a non grade one. You know, not even listed. I mean, an optional 80. But his number is with this group. They seem to fit and you have to project that you don't have to project that he's going to improve, but I think you have to project it. It's certainly possible. And so in flavian prat getting on board, certainly doesn't hurt things. Florence Giroud had been riding the horse, but he's obviously going to be loyal to mister Brad Cox because Brad paced bills. And so I don't see that as an endorsement of cyber knife by fleuron over we the people..

"Ethereal road, a final charge from on. I love how when they edit that video, they get Victor in the end now. That's one of my favorite victims. When he's doing the post parade, it'll do the talk up. Ladies and gentlemen, Oklahoma, gaming, casino, resort, library, roulette wheel, and racetrack are all proud to present. The 62nd running of the rebel. $1 million guaranteed grade three, and then he pauses, waits till the pros free starts and goes, and now. It's so good. It's one of my favorite Vic things is his whole post parade lead up. But okay, now that we're done with that, uno Ho with a shocker now, you guys know, I'm sure a lot of you know the story behind this horse, but uno Ho, you know, in Spanish translates to one eye. A single eye and then you know why, just like patch a few years ago, if you have a horse with one eye, you're almost, I mean, Pollard's vision, like you almost, you almost have to name him something about his eye, right? Like let's point out his disability in his name. That's what people do, apparently. But, you know, very lightly raced. Second in that withers behind early voting and second in the New York stallion race at a big price and really other than that, just a maiden winner had run for Ricky corville, went up to Anthony Dutch rose barn when he was in New York back to Ricky corville here, whose I'll be honest, trainer I've never heard of, assuming he's a delta guy, just based on the horse running at Delta. And remote Vasquez obviously a very well-known writer there at Oklahoma park, but who know, you know, kind of had that deep closing style, at least in most of his starts and, you know, figured to be a long shot, right? Well, he was 75 to one. And sitting a lot closer down on the rail. I thought ethereal road was the winner. Obviously we'll talk about D Wayne Lucas and secret oath a little bit later on. But Dwayne almost made it a banner day. I mean, he's obviously had some monster days in his career, but it would have been pretty amazing to win the rebel and the honeybee because, you know, spoiler alert secret oath won the honeybee. But man, I thought ethereal road was kind of home there. It made the move. Kavadh was up there early on with newgrange newgrange, kind of, you know, really no excuse kind of trip was just sitting right outside the long shot leader and was going into the turn. You could tell it just didn't have it. And Barbara wrote kind of came with his run from the back and he's kind of sneaking in this race because, you know, the big finish at the end, a theory road is clear, and then you're watching uno Ho's rallying best, but Barbara wrote is also kind of rallying between them at no point does it look like he's going to win the race, but he's also only beaten half a length. In the end. And so I maintain he's kind of one to watch. Now this race didn't come back all that fast from a speed figure standpoint. And it makes sense, right? Like we've talked about this a few times. Like where do long shots come from? How do long shots happen? Well, sometimes they move way up. Sometimes they just improve, right? Sometimes everybody else regresses and comes back to them. Sometimes and I would say most times, it's probably a combination of the two, right? I mean, a 75 to one shot, longest shot in the race, theoretically, everybody needs to come back to him, combined with him moving forward. And, you know, was it was it that? I don't know. I have to see the bruised net numbers because that's what I have in front of me to compare it to his previous starts. His last two efforts in New York were solid bridge numbers. They weren't as good as some of these top horses. They certainly weren't as good as a theory road last outer barber road last out or newgrange last out. So it makes sense that he was, you know, longer odds than them. And smaller barn and all that kind of stuff. Kenny mcpeek on Twitter pointed out that the top four finishers all carried a 117. The three that carried a 122 because there's kind of allowance conditions to a lot of the weights. They ran 5th 6th and 7th. And I saw somebody else reply to it. Well yeah, but what about the 8th 9th and tenth finishers? They all had a 117 as well. They've got beat by the one 22s. I think what happened here was you had a couple of the better horses not fire. I think first of all, you didn't have nearly as good of a group top to bottom as we saw in the risen star. A week ago, and I think you had a very vulnerable favorite who, as I said, kind of grinded out a win last time, but was not like impressive doing it. And you had, you know, dash attacks coming off a bad start, so he's one that needs to improve. And you know, obviously that's probably part of the reason why Kenny was upset. Does 5 pounds at a mile and an 8 or -16th rather? Does that make the difference between four and a half lengths? Well, I think the general rule of thumb wasn't it that like a length is a pound. Not for like for when you handicap, like if you think a horse is four or 5 links better, you make it four or 5 pounds more. I forget what the exact rule is. There's a little bit of a guideline on that, but it's nothing official. It's just kind of the horse racing term. It's the way we've always done it. And so, you know, does it make a difference? That big of a difference. I don't put that much stock into weight when you're talking about 5 pounds. You're talking about ten pounds, maybe it's a little different, but what people who like me who will discount weight, we will say, well, you're talking about a three or a thousand pound or 900 pound or 1100 pound in that ballpark animal. So we're comparing it to what that would mean for us. You know, for me to carry around 5 pounds around a mile is probably noticeable. If anything, my arm might be more tired if I'm holding it if it's just strapped to my back, my back might be a little more tired. I think it's noticeable. And I'm a big, big guy. So but is it noticeable on something that weighs three or four times as much as I do, and is theoretically in a lot better shape. You know, I think it's not a big deal, but a lot of horsemen do. I mean, I remember from working in the race office, like when they can get some weight break, they will take it. They love it. So it's certainly a debate to be had. My thing is, I want races to be as even as possible from a betting standpoint and a competition standpoint. So if there's things that need to be done to make that happen and I realized that you can make the argument that, well, you're penalizing horses who are who have done who have done more and who have done better. And I guess that's probably true. I don't have a great argument. I just know that in the end, I want good open competitive betting races. And this kind of became that, right? Exact page $708 if you were right. I mean, that's pretty tasty. The dime super was $7084. Oof. Monster. You got 1360 to place. And yeah, an interesting addition to the rebel. Like I said, I don't think the best prep. And I don't think there's anybody I'm like, you know, if I was one of those Derby top ten guys, like old shap cap over there. Twins fires. I might not have any of them in there. Just a thought. Why don't we take quick break? We come back, we'll talk about the honey bee. We'll talk about the royal delta, and we'll continue our weekend recap. It's the Jason beam horse racing podcast brought.

"They're off. Good start for all, but Kyra. Newgrange and kavadh right to the front, chasing time very close to those two and those are the three early. Then comes onojo, Texas, red hot end to the outside ethereal road. Next comes barber road, followed by stellar tap and Ben diesel at the back of the pack our dash attack and the slow starting Kai Rama. To the backstretch kavadh now sprints away and he leads Newton Grange by a full two lengths kavadh the leader. Newgrange is second by a length and a quarter as chasing time has moved to the inside and he's third and two and a half from the front. Ethereal road is close to the pace. To the inside he's fourth now and alongside chasing time. Two lengths to stellar tap Barbara road is at the rail and he's moving up. Then comes Texas red hot, Ben diesel and dash attack. They're all about 7 from the front. Kai Rama has trailed throughout at the half mile marker of the 62nd rebel in its kavadh in front. Kavadh leads newgrange. Now only three quarters of a length. On ojo, chasing time between horses and a three wide ethereal road. They're all two from the front. Barbara road still has 5 lengths to make up Ben diesel's outside of him and so is stellar tap and kavadh has the lead. Kavadas in front, but newgrange is alongside in second and ethereal road is running a big one three wide in third. On a whole host back to fourth chasing time is 5 off the lead and here's ethereal road outside of kavadh and these tour matching strides, and they put two lengths on new grades. Barbara road is next to the outside chasing time. It is ethereal road and kavadh coming to the wire ethereal road has the lead. Kavadh. To the inside,.

"Ends up being on the lead and just doesn't quite run her best race. You know, gets caught and both Emily and Darren kind of pointed out that a lot of times, that is not what horses like to do is to be out of their comfort zone now. She's usually just got a little bit of a target. In fact, you go back to the way or the why I forget which one is was on the lead and didn't really fire her best race at Gulfstream all came when she was just a little bit off the pace and had a targeted stock. And so, you know, the fact that it played out that she was on a coasting on an easy lead is odd it sounds maybe not the best thing for her and did she lose by much no. But even money favorite you look for some vulnerability and got that swing shift was a maiden special weight when earlier on the card and a little controversial kind of lugged out and a lot of folks thought maybe the DQ was worried that it weren't, but promising debut effort, I guess, was mostly what I wanted to talk about. But as I said, a lot of racing as a whole at Gulfstream on a Saturday for Pegasus day and you know big days at Gulfstream in particular maybe, but at a lot of places. They can often chalk out and it's just, it just seems kinda tipping. But I say that and then there's been a few times where that's not been the case. But obviously favorites are going to win their percentage of the time. And when you have the best horses, I guess it's funny. I had this conversation like, what are the best races for long shots? Well, part of me thinks it's good races because, you know, if you have a good field of 12, it doesn't take all that much for a 15 to one shot to step forward a little bit, maybe have a few others regress and have a win. In cheap races, you obviously have a lot of horses who don't have a ton of heart or ability. And so, you know, just they let a long shot loose on the lead. Somebody improves a little bit. Everybody regresses, just scramble. You can get big prices there. So I think you can get prices in every type of race. So I don't think it's that good races should be more formal than cheap prices. Certainly those horses are more reliable. You know, they're less likely to just not turn in. They might have a bad day. But they're not going to just play over like you see sometimes with a cheaper horse. Why don't we quickly before we in this show talk about the southwest stakes in the king cotton? And like I said, we'll talk more about these in depth tomorrow because Nancy holtz is going to join us on the program. But the southwest takes big fields end up being a field of 12, set to go to post favoritism, newgrange, the baffert runner who was two for two breaking out in post ten. Dash attack goes off to three to one second choice, 5 to one, Ben diesel, who was drawn way outside last time, ended up down on the rail this time. And let's take a listen back to Vic stoffers call of the Southwest. They're off. Perfect start. Newgrange and classic moment shows speed. Kavadh and Ben diesel at the rail. Osbourne going to take back and so did Ben diesel as John cord takes a hold. Jamal call me Jamal is next. Then to the outside and don't cross the devil, dash attack is midfield. Costa terran and ignitis then Barbara road and the early trailer is vivar. To the backstretch and kavadh is the leader from classic moment in second, kavadh, three quarters of a length. Classic moment is second by a length and a half to new grain, who sits third for John Velazquez, and eyes the frontrunners. A three and a half length margin back to to the outside don't cross the devil, Osbourne between horses and Ben diesel at the rail. Here's Ben diesel to take fourth and four from the front. Three and a half more back to ignitis Barbara road call me Jamal and Costa Terra. They're all about 9 off the lead. Vivara is still the trailer a half mile to go in the 57th southwest and kavadh is the leader three furlongs from the money. He's a length in front of classic moment in second. Newgrange has asked to go after the frontrunners now. Ben diesel stays at the rail. Osbourne is between horses. Dash attack has 5 lengths to make up. They run towards the top of the stretch. Here's classic moment outside of kavadh. Kavadh is still ahead in front. Classic moment, newgrange and Ben diesel in striking position if they're good enough. Top of the stretch kavadh leaves the rail open if Ben diesel is good enough to go through. Classic moment is there. Then comes Osborne in newgrange, kavadh is still there. Kavadh's dressed it out just a bit. Ben diesel is trying to move through from the inside in newgrange to the outside in Barbara road. Newgrange has now taken the lead. Barbara wrote in Ben diesel newgrange barber road, newgrange in front. I'm curious now what percentage I could probably look this up pretty easily. What percentage of the points races now has as baffert one where I remember somebody emailed me about this and there was a whole dispute and then what I saw was emailed about when I saw online said that they're wrong. The horses get the points, they just can't use them if preference the trainer, and then I heard they can't get the points and so but I almost I was thinking about this right when the race was over. I went to the gym, humble brag on Saturday night after our races and I watched the southwest from the elliptical machine I don't know, yeah, yeah, yeah, the cool machine because I do weights and then cardio. No, no, no, I don't. No, I was on my warmup on the treadmill. That's where it was before weights, and then not a big deal. I'm a gym guy now. But I had the thought like I'm sure in bob's head like he's probably just thinking, I'm gonna show you guys, I'm gonna win all these points races. And I'm gonna go around and just take every point away from you guys or I'm gonna win all the money and then have all the top contenders and then not be in your Derby race. But you know obviously the owners are still going to run for it. I'm sure there's still you know because I hit that case going on a bell but maybe there's still hope that there's an appeal. I don't know what everybody's thinking in that camp, but he certainly been winning a lot of them as of late. But yeah, newgrange, I thought kind of a vulnerable favorite, just because, you know, try a new stuff, new track, longer distance, not going to be on the lead. And really, I thought on the turn was beat. I thought in the stretch was beat. I mean, he's fourth the stretch call. You know, the race was, I don't want to say it was falling apart. They got it somewhat honest pace early on. So, I mean, they came home 26 and four and then 6 and a half for the last quarter. I mean, they were not flying at the end there. It was a little bit of a war of attrition that newgrange won. You see the comment asked for white at the quarter found more because he looks beat. And kavadh who was kind of a long shot leader was in front got, you know, very tired late. Ben diesel, who was kind of down on the rail, got a little tired late and barbaro just kind of followed newgrange for a lot of the journeys. So it was I don't know, we all say after every prep, do we see the Derby winner in that race? I don't think so. Dash attack really didn't fire. You know, he kind of loomed up for a second on the turn where I thought he was going to make a move and then just flattened out and obviously disappointment for his connections and vivar the long shot I like never end jump. He was pretty much last the whole way around. Past a couple of tired horses. But newgrange gets the win three to two over a Barbara road and Barbara ode I had said was he was the one horse I thought people were gonna kind of bet because he's consistent well they didn't. He ended up going off at almost 12 to one, and he consistently ran a good second. So congratulations to John Ortiz and those connections. The king cotton stakes, it was bob's edge and an upset win 7 one from off the pace beating logs at home base and 7 Asian army. Favoritism Nashville, he didn't come out great, rushed up a little bit and then they kind of battled early on..

"kavadh" Discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast

"The equine forum on HR RN, presented by twin spires and we have a new leader at the top of the stretch. It is kavadh and he leads by a link. Ben diesel in second all in sync is third Barbara road to the outside in vivar many chances final furlong kavadh has the lead here comes dash attack in the center of the race track and dash attack. It's going to roll by. And now he's three in front of kavadh and Barbara road. Dash attacked to win the smarty Jones. Dash attack beat Barbara road close for third, maybe kavadh. Well, the past few months have been pretty good for trainer Kenny mcpeak and that is probably the understatement of the year. Three horses currently in the top ten on the Derby points list, including smarty Jones winter dash attack. You just heard Vick stauffer with the call of that race that was at Oakland park back on New Year's Day, January 1st. And dash attack has been really, really good. He is two for two lifetime. He's going to look to keep that perfect streak intact on Saturday afternoon and he would, if he can do so by winning the southwest stakes, he would give trainer can make peak his very first win in that race, which is surprising to me, it may be to some of you as well, considering that Kenny has settled over 1800 winners in what has been a brilliant career. But this race is one that he hasn't added to his resume, but dash attack has a really good chance to give him that first win. He also has the talented grade two winner tis the bomb gearing up for his three year old debut. So Kenny, if I say what's going on in your world, it's probably going to go a lot of different directions. Yeah, there's no doubt. We're good position. We're trying to keep some good three year old cult separated and I'm real proud of this cold bash tech because we've already been raised in the magdalena farm in Lexington, the hormone and it's hard to do to breed a horse and train it and race it on it. So it's kind of an extra bonus. Take me back to that mating and how that all came together. You know what? I bought his mother, Cersei K at auction. And she was a hard spun filling and she was very talented. She broke her maid in the keenland and then and then subsequently got injured and we retired and decided to keep her as a mayor because she's got a good female family, but we have bred her to a list of different stallions and Rick Greenberg and I agree that money we thought was a really good stallion that would suit her, add a little speed to the program. She wanted a model in 16th herself, but she's had some failures. She slipped on and she also said a fold or two year old got injured in the paddock, so that's unfortunate. But she's got a full sister on the ground to dash attack and we're excited about that one thinks she's actually very similar looking Philly's dash tech. So fingers crossed that he keeps rolling. Yeah, both of his wins have come and convincing fashion, so he's obviously ultra talented. Were there things that you saw in him in the early stages that led you to believe, okay, maybe there's something about this horse that kind of sets him apart and he stands out a little bit from the others. Well, you have a lot of physical issues as a young horse because he's big. And it's taken a little longer than some of my other cults. He's a cult that we stopped on three times as an earlier two year old on stopped on him in the spring, stopped on him again in the summer and then even in the fall, we weren't quite ready for the Kentucky races. So subsequently he ended up running at Oakland and was and has been a little bit behind the curve, like I said on the physical and then he's really come around. He's been a pleasant surprise. He's always been very workman like and he always and a good really good doer or he eats really well. But these last two races have been like I said a real pleasant surprise and I'm not going to tell you that we anticipated it going into it. He's just always done everything right. We are so used to seeing young two year olds start out in short sprint races. You didn't do that with dash attack. You ran him in a mile maiden race. He wins that one and then he comes back in the mile smarty Jones on New Year's Day. Now he goes a mile in the 16th. Did you ever think? Okay, he's big. He's strong. That's the reason we're going to run him at a longer distance as opposed to sprinting him. Well, if you're around the horse, like we are, he is a big horse. And I don't think that he was going to learn anything by running him 6 for longs. I didn't think he was going to be what I call 6 for a long fast. And he would have gone a sprint race. He would have probably laid. I don't know. 6 8 links behind, maybe more, and then come running late and then gallop out in front. That's what he would have done. I prefer to give an opportunity and if the horse has got enough enough work schedule under him to be able to go my own first time out, I'm all for it. I think that the sooner they learn to negotiate the two turns, the better off they are and then in his maiden win, he had a nice set up and came running. And in the smarty Jones, he had the same whether it gets at this weekend to be another question, but we're probably going to ask you to lay a little closer this weekend than he has in past because of kind of anticipating that he's going to need to. It's interesting you bring that up because I was going to mention that. He's been very professional, usually with young horses. They can be kind of the type that will run off and have that good early speed. But you have to teach them to rate. You've never had to worry about that with dash attack. While the grinds it out, I'm not known or actually I'm not known to win first time out. Matter of fact, they probably let me off it pretty long odds for some of that. But we're certainly capable. If we press that button hard. But I think that horses need to learn to get in rhythm and they need to learn to finish, and I think they like to learn the repetition of that. And then as they get deeper company or tougher tougher races, you're going to need to ask a little more speed so that they can get a kind of a cleaner trip as opposed to being a little too far back. But he can go out there this week, this thing is third race under his belt. He should be able to lay closer and then you really see how good he is. I like to consider myself kind of a progression trainer, first race is okay. Second nice is better, third race is best. And he's going to need his third race best race this weekend. Less dash attack, by the way, visiting with trainer Ken mcpeak here on the equine forum presented by twin spires on the horse racing radio network. I mentioned that you had three horses currently in the top ten, and of course it's early. Those standings will change, but you're hoping that all three will stay where they are. Rattle and roll sits at number three smile happy sits at number 6 and smile happy is kind of become a buzz horse. A lot of people thinking that he's one to keep an eye on as we get closer to that first Saturday in May. Both of those horses Kenny are owned by lucky 7 stable. Tell me more about that relationship and then we'll talk about the two horses. Well, I had horses for the Mac and on and off for over 20 years. We had horses formed back in the early 2000s and trained the stakes winning filling administered baby for the Mac and family..

"Multiple leading jockey and other mid Atlantic tracks. Daniel Santino was going to join the show very much looking forward to talking to Daniel, but watching him as a writer for years, in fact, he just has 50th birthday a week or so ago. So we'll talk about not about these 50th birthday, but just about writing later in his career. Obviously, still riding good and still got years left, hopefully, but very excited for that interview, looking forward to talking to Daniel. Joseph mcglory is going to join us tomorrow. Joe MiG we've had on the show before, we had him on after he had a big run in the World Series of poker a few years ago. So we had him on. I think at the time he was kind of just Richard big leor he's kid. But he had a big run of the World Series of poker. I thought, well, that'll be fun to talk about. Let's talk about that. Everybody loves the World Series of poker. But since then, he's got kind of a wide expanding career as a young Joe. He's worked for West Point thoroughbreds. He's now a bloodstock agent in New York. He's an agent for Trevor McCarthy. They've had a little bit of a quick start since teaming up and working together. So we'll talk about all Joe's new ventures on tomorrow's show. So looking for that and then Thursday it'll be me by myself as I said, I got some horseplayer stuff I want to talk about some betting stuff we want to talk about and more. So as I said, I'm going to kind of find my groove. I haven't decided yet what we're going to do with the jury. If that'll be something that comes back every Thursday, maybe just a once a month kind of thing, maybe just Scott and James on occasion. In that spot, we'll see. We shall see. But I'm just going to kind of feel the things out. I found that in my life. In my work life, I got to kind of just go with my gut and what I'm feeling. And I'm a planner, but I'm not. I also kind of like to let things go a little bit. So we'll see how we do. We'll see what you guys think, what I think, and we'll go with it. Speaking of creative I did another year and video. And it's just the same as the one last year, which is different jokes, I guess, different lyrics, but we did the we didn't start the fire is just the best song for songs parents because there's so much in it and it's so such a fun song. And so I did the end of the year one for that and people seem to get a kick out of it. So you can find that on my Twitter app beaming awards. If you want to check that out, but appreciate everybody who shared. I think it got like 40,000 views or something, which was better than last year's one, I believe. Not a 100% certain, but that was good. So I appreciate everybody for checking that out. But let's talk about some of the weekend that happened out on the racetrack. It was a busy weekend. And it was a busy weekend for Kentucky Derby preps and trail and you know kind of getting started with these points races. What's funny is I always think of the Derby trail really up until the last couple weeks as being pretty much almost every weekend, it seems like we got something going on, but we actually have a little bit of a gap here because we had three points races this weekend and we had the gun runner last weekend at fairgrounds prior to that we'd have the springboard model you know we kind of had and then there was the low southwestern like there was one a week. You know, there really was. Like if you go back and look since November, there was one week for the last 5 weeks. Three races this weekend, the smarty Jones, the Jerome and the sham for points races and now we have a little bit of a break in The Kentucky Derby trail points stuff because we have three weeks until the lecomte and that's the only one on the weekend of the 22nd and then the Southwest is on the 29th and then the holy bull, the bob Lewis and the Sam F Davis. Hey, that's me. I get to call the Sam F Davis. So that's all coming up. I thought the same 50s was on the 12th. Maybe I'm I got a double check that. Let me look. Let me look, let me look. Where's our stakes? I'll do that when we're off the air. But to anyways, it's coming up. How about that? We know that. So yeah, I wanted to start with what I thought was the most impressive of the three Derby points races. And I was hesitant on doing it on doing this one first just because it seemed like you know it was muddy and sloppy and a big field, a little bit of a fall apart type of race, but I really thought that the performance by ash attack was the best of them. The smarty Jones, big old, full field of 14 runners in that race, the short stretch race. Again, it's kind of a peculiar race. I should say feel the 13 there was a scratch in there. But homebrew ends up going off as your favorite at 5 to two. Ben diesel got some good support with coming off a fourth place finish at a stakeout at Churchill. Draw it way out in the 14 hole dash attack I mentioned the winner drawn down on the rail, but kind of got shuffled back and you know it was a little bit of a fall apart race. Let's hear Vic's call of the smarty Jones. They're off. Good start. All in sync Ben diesel in the center and home brew shows speed. Vivar in rugs are on the move as well. All in sync will set the pace at the rail, but rugs is between horses and Ben diesel is only in the two and a half path early. Home brew is shuffled back. He is passed in the center by kavadh, who takes over in fourth. Then comes dash attack at the rail to the outside and cool papa G another two lengths further back to bureau and towards the back of the pack. Is all kaira as they turn up the backstretch in the 15th smarty Jones Ben diesel has the lead from rugs and these two go right along and go quickly. Rugs is inside Ben diesel is outside. They are three lengths clear of kavadh. All in sync is fourth at the railing two and a half lengths in front of home brew who's at the rail home brew right now is 5th with about 5 lengths to make up. Then comes barber road dash attack has 6 to close, two and a half, two kaira. Then comes a length and a half back two bureau and they've round the far turn in the smarty Jones and Ben diesel has the lead kavadh is about to race up three wide and here comes kavadh tried for the lead rugs is still right there at the rail. All in sync is moving up. And we have a new leader at the top of the stretch. It is kavadh and he leads by a length. Ben diesel is second all in sync is third barber road to the outside in vivar many chances final furlong kavadh has the lead. Here comes dash attack in the center of the race track and dash attack is going to roll by and now he's three in front of kavadh and Barbara road. Dash attacked to win the smarty Jones. So dash attack is now a perfect two for two in his young career and both of them as prices. He was almost 11 to one in the debut. He was almost 8 to one here, paid $17 and 40 cents for Kenny mcpeak and and David Cohen. But again, just a little bit of peculiar racing. I'm sure some of that is the track. Again, I don't know with a sloppy sealed track. Like, does dash attack does his effort move up? Because to me, I mean, he hasn't done anything wrong, right? He's a perfect two for two..

"And our total iser board can handle 14 betting interests. And it's going to be interesting also, Mike, because the weather gods, I don't know who ticked them off or who did what. But a lot of possible severe weather is predicted for tomorrow morning. Hopefully the skies will clear up later in the racing afternoon, but we could potentially be racing over and off track come post time for the smarty Jones. Yeah, and of course you and I and Nancy catching up here on Friday. So as we're talking about this and you mentioned the weather coming in for Saturday morning, that's certainly a concern. And of course, by the time that this interview is playing folks can check the weather and see how that's playing out and it could be a wet race track. How would that affect the horse that second on the morning line? That's Barbara road, who is four to one under the red hot raw Gutierrez John Ortiz is the trainer. Barbara road seems to have a pedigree that would be okay with a wet track. Yeah, being by race day that tap at sire, certainly supports it. And he does have that two turn experience and broke his maiden for 30 at kaelin going around of ground very impressively gate to wire and that race came when putting on blinkers. Now he has sprinted in those two start since and actually became stakes placed in that lovely shively sent at Churchill downs and there's actually a lot of horses in the smarty Jones that are going to be testing two turns for the first time. Also a lot of horses that are going to be testing enough off track for the first time. So there's a lot of different variables going on in the first leg of our three year old series. So a lot of different variables. So it's going to be interesting to see how this one plays out Dallas Stewart also has been diesel. He's the only horse in the field of 14 that actually has a point going towards The Kentucky Derby. He earned that one point, but it is a point in the grade two Kentucky jockey club. He ran forth in that event in late November and you got to give him respect because he does have both races at a mile and a 16th. And I asked Dallas the other day, it looks like it got a little bit tired in that late stretch at Churchill. I said, you know, do you think the cutback and distance is going to help him? He says, well, it could, but I think he's a horse that wants to run all day long. He fired by will take charge who actually won this event back in the day in 2013, also campaigned by Willis Horton John court in the irons who also campaigns Vin Diesel. So it's kind of a full circle moment for Willis Horton Willis Horton always a huge supporter of Oak Lawn park. You can't not root for mister Horton. So it's going to be interesting. If it is a full field of 14, with bin diesel drawing that far outside post because he does tend to have that very early kick out of the gate that he is definitely going to have to pardon the pun jockey for position. Yeah. Yeah, talking with Oakland handy capper. Nancy holt is here on the horse racing radio network, the equine forum presented by twin spires. Nancy, let me ask you about another horse in here. That is a horse that has the most experience of any of these three year olds and we're so used to seeing most of the contenders with two or three lifetime starts to this point in their career. Well, number four and I hope I say his name correctly kavadh is so intense. We'll go with kavadh, making his tenth lifetime start in the smarty Jones. That's a lot of experience. It is. And it was a damn good claim. I hope I can say that. Chris took him for 50 back in late November at Churchill and he is battle tested as he has seen four graded stakes in his career as a two year old and he claimed it for 50 one by three and then he came back here in the advent states on opening weekend. He broke from the rail came a little bit from off the pace and got the score by a length and he actually beat a horse in here by the name of karima, who is also returning who was one of three, asked me some runners not to be not really surprising to see that. But Chris Hartman has a fantastic eye when it comes to claiming horses and jumping them up in the stakes. Remember several years ago, necker island that he gave a lot more money for. But yeah, not a surprise to see kavadh coming back in here. I know he wanted to enter kavadh, kind of take a look at the race, see how it shaped up. Right now, as I mentioned, we are a field of 14. We don't do early scratches this year. So I'm hoping for a field of 14, but we'll have to see how that one plays out. So I do post scratches on my Twitter page. So scratches are at 8 30 when I go into the steward's office. So you might want to follow me on Twitter and if there are any updates, but we do know that you can scratch up to around an hour before post. So trainers might want to see how the track is playing on as the race the races lead up to smarty Jones. Yeah, by the way, that Twitter feed for Nancy holt this is at Nancy eerie hold this you are why Nancy Erie holt this on Twitter and you can follow her and get all the scratches get all the information and make sure you get the latest on everything happening down in Oakland..

"The Saturday in Sunday afternoon to be sure to catch America's day at the races on FS1 this weekend tomorrow FS1 from two 30 to 6 Eastern Time Sunday FS1 from two 30 to 5 30. Okay, bob. Let's start it off in New York tomorrow, and I guess the road toward the wood memorial and ultimately toward The Kentucky Derby starts with the Jerome. One mile, one turn at aqueduct, $150,000 on the line. We heard in the start of the show, the replay of the stretch run of the grade three Nashua one so impressively by the Bob Baffert trainee Rockefeller, we're going to talk a little bit more about Rockefeller later in the show. He runs in the sham stakes tomorrow at Santa Anita the runner up to Rockefeller was cook creek and cook creek is the morning line favorite in the Jerome at 5 to two. Yeah, I mean cook creek definitely on all known form appears to be the best horse in the race. My biggest concern with him going to one turn mile would be that inside post, I don't love that. That being said at this point in his career he's probably the best horse in the race there's a very interesting entrant and hear corps of the 6 horses $600,000 colt by tappet out of take charge brandy, of course, won the breeders cup juvenile Phillies a few years back and who's a half sister to Omaha beach as well take charge brandy. So it'll be very interesting, core velocity 8 took four starts to break his maiden he's now going in the right direction the best race of his life December 2nd here at aqueduct. I think he gets a stiff test from the already more seasoned cook creek, many Franco and up and coming trainer, Jeremiah, dwyer here, have a very live horse. So he gets out of there, gets cleaned up out of the wood and always should be tough. Well, that's the biggest question. Is that one turn mile in the inside post? It's a roundly regarded as the worst post to have. And even if you're a speed horse, it doesn't seem like anyone really wants that inside draw in these one mile one turn events, whether it's an aqueduct or a Gulfstream park. It seems like the inside is not where you really want to be. So if you're betting on cook creek, what do you think is a fair price? And what is the trip you're looking for? I used 5 to two in the morning line. Hopefully gets out of there. It gets to a forward position. I would like him to be with a length or two of the front end. I think that anything above 8 to 5 would be would be fair two to one ideal 5 to two, I think would be a gift. I just think, at this point, he's got the most upside, he's beautifully bred himself. He's uncle mo out of a bernardini bear. He spread to stay much further than this and many Franco wrote him a great race last time you just got beat by a better horse and Rockefeller who I think will be very tough to beat in the sham. Cook creek already a stakes winner winning the rocky run at Delaware park two starts back in a bang up second last time out in the grade three Nashua. He figures to be tough to beat in the drone bob and my top selection in the Jerome is cook creek, but I agree with you. I don't want to take a short price and I'm afraid of that inside draw, but I think cook creek has done enough to warrant favoritism and he looks very tough tomorrow in the Jerome goes as race 8 on the card at aqueduct. Let's head over to Oak Lawn park and their road. I guess toward the Arkansas Derby begins tomorrow with the quarter $1 million smarty Jones, three year olds going a two turn mile at Oak Lawn park and we've got a huge field of 14 going to post. And I'll tell you what, bob, whereas cook creek stands out as a very logical favorite in the Jerome. I'm not even sure who will be favored in the smarty Jones. Yeah, and I couldn't agree with you more. It's really hotly contested race here. I was really impressed with the Chris Hartman trainee kavadh, the four horse mikata horse horse that cost a mere $3500 as a key on September yearling a son of a Leah out of the Pope at mayor weekend connection. Really, really tough effort determined effort to win the advent, which I believe was the first stakes of this new December Oakland stake schedule and it just looked good doing it. Interesting I'm sure we'll talk about that. This is an interesting angle on this race in particular. There's a lot of horses who have brought on Lasix once now coming awfully 6 for this race, including kavadh. I think he's tough. I think the favorite is going to be just one pose to his inside home brew, who's a Gary and Mary west home bred by street sense. He was very impressive last time and optional claimer allowance race at Oakland going the course and distance sud of the stakes tomorrow the smarty Jones one mile Terry Wallace in the fame short stretch of the mile run. He's three to one, I think considering his connections of Brad Cox and the Giroux he'll probably go off favorite and the fact that he's done it before, albeit against lesser, I think he's the you think he's the worst beat. I think that all in sync the morning I don't have 8 to ones a little bit silly. I think he'll be much shorter than that. I think it's gonna be a hotly contested race, like you mentioned at the start. I'm gonna go with a home brew to beat kavadh. Okay, three and four bob selections in the smarty Jones. I'm gonna go a little off the rails with the Remington park in Vader. Number 9 don't cross the devil for new trainer filled the motto, Jalen clary had this one at Remington park and did a great job with the son of cross traffic. A couple of impressive wins at nice prices and runaway wins at that bread to handle the extra distance being by cross traffic out of a devil his due mare and filled the motto always a high percentage trainer, wherever he is mainly out in southern Southern California, but obviously going to have a string at Oakland as well. I think don't cross the devil's overlooked on the morning line because he's coming from Remington park, but he brings his rider with him lane Leslie and I like what he's done over there in Oklahoma City. Don't cross the devil. For me, ten to one on the morning line in the smarty Jones. Let's head down south. They've got 5 stakes on the Gulfstream park card tomorrow, and we're going to start with race number four. This is the $100,000 cash run for three year old Phillies going a mile on the main track. This is a one turn mile at Gulfstream. And I'll tell you what bob, it's a very intriguing race here because you've got a morning line favorite number three surreal fantasy who looked very good, beating basically nothing at Tampa Bay downs last time..
