"6 is the grade two Appalachian, one mile on that beautiful turf course at Keenan. Tough one to figure out here, which way are you going to go? Well, Mike, I am a little bit dubious of Cairo concert at some of the consort and some of those horses been running down in Florida this winter. It might be wrong about that, but I've got a new face in the mix. There's obviously two of them in here. Number 6 B or best, the number 7 pleasant passage. And I'm going to give the edge to number 6 B your best. I use this silly last year last fall at Keenan on November 4th and the greater scope juvenile turf Phillies. And to say she had the worst of it trip was would be an understatement. She was basically had a ton of horse down the back stretch into the turn. I hate to criticize jockey rods, but I thought Jose Ortiz had ample opportunity to angle her out on the far turn and entering the stretch and set he held his position and tried to find racing room and that never happened. She got point blank stopped, checked repeatedly. And basically just sort of spit the bid angle in towards the outside that day. And the thing about the way that race wound up was, I don't know if she was going to be meditate for Charlie appleby, but she won by about two and a half months. It was two and a half lengths from second to third. I think that be your best would have been in the top three. And she looked a lot better on paper. In fact, I thought that her two races last year, when she broke her maiden on firm ground and won the PJ Johnson on good turf on turf with some give to it, or just spectacular. And I thought that in that mix reload, that was just a bog that day at aqueduct, the ground was so soft that she just wasn't striding out in the stretch. She won't get that kind of soft yielding ground in Appalachian this afternoon. And I think the best getting we say yes was up on pat who just ran second and be Cairo concert in the here comes the broad last time. He takes off her to pick up the mounts on B your best. So I think that Billy's training in real forwardly for the pause, McLaughlin and say, know that she's poised to run a big one. And I'm going to give her the ad. She's 8 to one on the morning line. I'm going to better to win an Appalachian stakes. Do you use her inexact as with pleasant passage just to her outside? I do. I really do. And those Phillies, to me, pleasant passage got the best of it. When she was on that yielding ground last fall. And she really got the best of it. She just basically followed meditates in the juvenile Phillies. I mean, I give her credit for running second, but it was a real belated second. And she just doesn't have the turn of foot that be your best pass. So I think be your best is going to get first run on pleasantly pass it, but pleasantly passage. And I'm going to give her the edge at a better price. The other horse that's going to get some respect is number three, Cairo consort, who you mentioned earlier at the beginning of your analysis of this race, James, and you said that you weren't really high on her or at least thought that she's vulnerable in here. What gives you pause with Cairo contour because she's going to take a lot of money. She has and you know, it was a thing where by Mike, I'm just like, you know, I thought she got great rides from irad Ortiz in the Ginger brew to barely get up on a little bit of a dubious field that day. And I just wasn't like, I just wasn't blown away by the competition in the Swedish chance. Both alpha bell, who ran second, and it was a Todd putcher Philly and heavenly Sunday was third in there. And I'm just a little bit dubious that those Phillies are the best three year old tar Phillies in America and so I'm looking for a little bit of a new face against the likes coming from Gulfstream. All right, and again, you'll be rewarded with the price. Be your best number 6, 8 to one on the morning line in the grade two Appalachian race 6 at keenland today. All right, one more to go. The final leg of this week's twins fires triple play. James, you've chosen to talk about the grade two shaker town, 5 and a half furlongs on the turf, all eyes are going to be on the breeders cup turf sprint winter caravel who makes 2023 debut in this spot. What do you think? Caravel, or can we beat caravel later today? I think we can be caravelle. And I thought the key for caravel in that terfs sprint was being drawn inside. Obviously when Colton Powell missed the break, the other horse showed speed was Artemis city limits. I thought he really ran a good second last fall at Kentucky downs in the great two terse sprint came back was a good third and a great two Woodford akilah to golden Powell and he really ran a solid 5th. I mean, he only gets beat two and a half lens. He got the little bit the worst of it like being I thought carried wide, whereas Caribou got to save ground on the turn and into the stretch. But I thought that was a really respectful really respectable effort. And the thing I like about Artemis city limits Mike is that he's getting irad Ortiz junior up on him. And to me, this is a race that just, I mean, for a 5 and a half 5 and a half furlong terse friend, I expect to see a lot of horses with the like a lot of ones that like the first call in their run lines. And this race did not come out loaded with speed. Obviously caravel has speed, but she's too is outside. I think I read our teeth junior is the most aggressive jockey in America. I think he's going to hustle Artemis from the starting gate. I think he's going to hustle Artemis city limits and going to get out there and set the pace and that horse is just going to keep on rolling the gelding. We'll just keep on rolling. I'm going to tab Artemis city limits wire to wire with our expertise in the grade two shaker tower. I love it, some great value there from James Scully with this week's twin spires triple play. James, before I let you go, I'll recap very quickly for our listeners, race number 5 at kilin, you're going to go with number one hoist the gold. It odds of 8 to one, race number 6, you'll go at number 6, be your best at 8 to one, and then in the 8th race, the shaker town, you'll go in number three, Artemis, city limits at 5 to one. You know, every time I see that Artemis, I want to say our team is because of Ken Ramsey, right? His hometown in Kentucky where he calls it Artemis instead of Artemis. I had forgotten about that, but I know what you're talking about. Absolutely. Yeah. Yeah, Artemis is a pretty good wine, by the way. Stag's leap wine. It's not too bad. Give it a shot if you've never tried it. What a great tip. Thank you. Thank you. There you go. James, I appreciate it, man. Again, we'll encourage people to head to twins by dot com to play those three races any way they like. Real quick, what's happening at twin spires with this keenland meat opening weekend. And what's happening at bris with this opening weekend? Well, I mean, at barista at home,

"Three victories in the race. A matter of fact, the first of the three victories in the race for owner Ken and Sarah Ramsey and Ken is back this year taking another swing at it with a couple of entrance trained by safi Joseph junior, safiya native of Barbados and someone who is known all over the island. He trained a Triple Crown winner in Barbados before coming to the United States. So certainly has plenty of credentials coming into this year's edition of the Barbados gold cup and I'm going to welcome dean Springer to the program here momentarily. We are working on connecting with dean in Barbados and should be a lot of fun. Sing this field a lullaby. I want to ask him about that. That's kind of his signature phrase that he uses in many of his races. And it kind of what he's become known for and it's a great day of racing. Ten races slated on that program at garrison Savannah, the Barbados gold cup is going to be run as race number 9, 6 10 p.m.. I believe that's local time, so it would be 5, 10 p.m. eastern. They're one hour ahead of us. And dean is indeed with us now. We have made that connection. Dean, good morning. Great to hear your voice and happy gold cup day. Hi, good morning. Good afternoon here. Really excited to talk some gold cup with you. It's been a while because we haven't been able to celebrate the gold cup the past couple of years with the COVID situation. How great is it to have the gold cup back again? It's fantastic. A lot of people are really excited. We've got quite an interesting bunch of horses. There are at least two or three of them we know very little about as far as local form goes. And it appears wide open on paper. Well, it's definitely wide open on paper. I was just referencing the fact that our good friend here from the states Ken Ramsey is back taking another swing at trying to get a fourth gold cup win. And saffy Joseph junior, a Barbados native, is back at his home country again. He's not going to be there in person. I was texting with him earlier this week. He won't be there in person, but he sends over both of those forces for Ken and Sarah Ramsey. Yes. They're both here. They look absolutely amazing as expected.
