"Get up and win that breeders cup mile. Welcome back to the breeders cup countdown presented by hill and Dale at alapa. Bobby Newman Jude fell priest to be joined now by Conrad bander off he's the vice president of Denali stud and their ties Conrad to Royal Academy. The fact that he was one of your yearly sales graduates albeit maybe a little before your time at the helm. But what does it actually mean to be a yearling sales grad? Yes, a Royal Academy was one of the horses that really kind of helped start to put Denali stud on the map and we sold them as a yearling and he was obviously bought by the sanctuary in the magners and went on to be a dual champion and while I might not have been alive to watch him race. I've certainly watched replays. So no, he came through our yearling program and we sold them at a yearling at the July keenland sale. So you mentioned the yearling program. What does that involve? How early are you getting these horses and what exactly does the program entail? Well, you know, it varies really, you know, we obviously are farm in Paris situated on 800 acres and we raise about a full crop about 90 folds every year and probably about 70 to 80 of those or 70 to 75 will go into our sales prep program or our yearling program where we'll prepare those courses for auction, but we also represent some of the major breeders in the industry, the likes of stone street windstar, penno stud, and bridal wood, three chimneys, and the year link program is different for horses like those. They're raised and prepped by their breeders and they've got fantastic programs. And fantastic team and those horses will just ship into us at the sales and we assist them and presenting and selling their horse. So it varies from us from getting the Marin full to following the mayor, raising that ensuing full to taking it to auction to just having the horses ship into us at the sale and then we then we take over. And you have a allegiance of customers that use you every year for their breeding operations and send their horses to you because you've developed that trust over the years. Yeah, you know, our motto is we raise and sell Saturday afternoon horses and this weekend is the ultimate show of that where represented by several graduates, including arrest me red, who was born and raised on Denali and is going to try to be the other Wesley ward horse to beat golden Powell and then on Friday we've got blazing 7s who we sold as a short yearling for Tracy farmer and has been training great. I thought he looked awesome this morning and we're selling his damn trophy girl at the night of the star sale on Sunday Night. She's in full to a central quality on Saturday. We'll be represented by Mao that in the distaff who was a yearling graduate we sold her in book one and in September for a 1 million 50. And I always, it's always funny that just the way things work out, I remember before Mao at that sold, you know, we had a pretty good idea that she was going to sell well. And Todd and Aaron wellman at the time of eclipse came into the back walking ring right before Mao thought was gonna go into the shoot to go into the ring and Todd kind of said, you know, is it me or is there just a little quiet around here and you know we had a we had a decent idea that we thought shake hamdan was on her and we said, no, you know, you're gonna have some competition and shadwell obviously bought her and it's just funny how the way things work out that Todd ended up getting to train her after Kira McLaughlin retired from training. So I love malata, she's a personal favorite of mine and can't wait to watch her compete on Saturday. Yes, she's going up against here in wellman and nest, right? So it's always, that's the thing about racing. You never know what's going to happen or what you're going to end up with. It makes it exciting. Absolutely. It's the ultimate theater. Yeah. Mentioned coming out of break that you guys have not only been involved with several breeders cup runners, as you are this year, but been involved graduating some Kentucky Derby runners as well with animal kingdom and real quiet coming to mind. When it's these big kind of races, the breeders cup championships are Triple Crown races. How big of a feather in the cap of Denali stud? Is it when your grads or horses that you've raised or sold end up winning? I mean, it's the ultimate, it's the ultimate dream, you know, it's what it's everything that we do at the farm at the sales. It's all striving to to try to help horses get to these kind of events and onto this kind of platform and podium. And we're just fortunate to be to play a small role in their careers and when you've raised a horse like animal kingdom, you like to think that, you know, there's probably nothing that we did that made him who he was as an athlete, but we were able to stay out of his way and help him on his path in his early education as far as how he's handled and his mind and his and his mental disposition and a lot of that imprinting that we work with them as a full, you know, they're starting to get handled and you're starting that imprinting from such a young age only two hours old and but it's a testament to your team. It's a testament to your land and your farm and to the program and the type of horses that you that you raise and that you present it market and so to have horses in The Kentucky Derby, the Kentucky oaks, the breeders cup, I mean that's why we get up every morning, you know? This is our passion and raising these type of horses is what keeps us going. It's so important. I mean, people have no idea. They come out to the races and they see the horses run and they think that's just a racehorse. All this stuff beforehand before getting to the track is super important. The way you handle the horses and what you do with them, so many horses don't get the breaks that somebody that sends their horse to you get, right? I mean, they're things that you have to take care of and understand and teach the horse before they get to the racetrack because sometimes people send horses in and you know that they were not handled properly and you have to go through the motions of retraining them and re breaking them and getting their minds right before they can actually even breeze three eighths of a month. Yeah, you know, you've got to you've got to get them ready so that the next person in the process can be set up for success, whether it's the two year old pre training or the trainer down the line and when you think about it to get a horse in the starting gate for the Derby, it's a four year process. You're planning the mating. You know, you got to get the mayor pregnant, then she's got to deliver a live full. And so it's an incredibly long and there's lots of opportunities for there to be obstacles and roadblocks and so just to get here is an amazing, amazing accomplishment. And we're very privileged to be able to be represented by some great horses this weekend. Yeah, absolutely. I don't know if you ever heard of a trainer named Shane knight or not. But Shane knight was one of the first quarter horse guys to come to the thoroughbred business and he used to say all the time you should be able to rent the winner circle. All the staff that you have to go through in order to get a horse to the winner's circle and he goes, you're in there for like 30 seconds.

"Course, podcast on major podcast platforms all over the world each and every week and really appreciate everybody tuning in. However, you're listening to trainer talk here on this Wednesday afternoon or maybe even a bit later listening on the podcast. Well, throughout the history of thoroughbred racing, there have been some incredibly successful partnerships among trainers who have taken private jobs for owners in the business and names like suge mcgahey and the FIPS family immediately come to mind. Neil Howard and his magical run with the Ferris family and lane then, and then you had Kira McLaughlin in the maktoum family and that relationship that worked so well for so long. Well, my guest on today's show isn't ready to count himself among those legendary pairings just yet. But he's also just getting started in September, he took over as private trainer for Katie rich farms in midway, Kentucky. He has saddled 6 winners from his first 26 starters. That's not a bad start. And at just 27 years old, the sky certainly appears to be the limit. As a matter of fact, how about this, in his first 8 months on the job, the native of Lexington, Kentucky, has made such a powerful impression that George Barnes, the president of Katie rich farms, took time to email me and had nothing but praise for their young trainer. Please join me in welcoming trainer Daniel leach to trainer talk presented by phasic tipton. Daniel appreciate the visit. Oh, I appreciate you guys calling me. Fun. You know, in his email, George made it a point to say that you've done a fantastic job and the team at Katie rich is convinced that you have a really bright future. It sounds like the perfect marriage. Oh, I mean, I love everybody out there and you know, they've given me an opportunity of a lifetime and you know stuff like this don't happen to people like me every day and when you get opportunity like this, you got to run with it and you've got to, I mean you got to make everything possible happen and if it does it's good, it's all good if not figure something else out but I just get in a really good opportunity and I love everybody over Katie rich and they're like family to me. When did you or what do you remember about the moment when you got the news that you were going to be promoted to head trainer? Well, it was kind of all in the work within probably four years, 5 years. So I started taking horses for Mark with the old trainer and I started shipping horses around for him like the Ohio to Virginia to just different little tracks that would needed to run and I'll run in for him, satellite and then bring him back and then I wanted to start doing more and more and so I got another job with ray handel down in Florida and I went down with him for a little bit and I wanted to stay with rape for a little bit longer, but they called me. They wanted me to come back and Mark was getting older and I just they wanted me to be around the barn more and help him ship and that. So I just decided to come back and it would just all going all good and you know it was you know I knew it was gonna happen but I just need to get my license so once I took the test and passed the test and actually got my license, I just figured it would be a matter of time before it happened. So you mentioned Mark and that's Mark Hubble who was the longtime trainer at Katie rich and he trained right up until last year. Is he training anything this year at all? No, he's not, he's actually retired. I think he's in he has also had the house in Colorado and breckenridge and I'm pretty sure he's out there right now. I've seen him every once in a while. He texted me after races every once in a while. He's like a father figure kind of and you know he helped me out a lot and I always loved Mark so he had some pretty good horses too for Katie rich. I think he saddled well let me see, I looked it up on echo base. It looks like 275 career winners more than $5.2 million in purses. So Mark Hubble was around some pretty good horses too. There was that one, I'm trying to think, was it your round? Was that the name of the Katie rich horse that he trained that was so good? Yeah, he had your round. He had missed Mary apples. He had misread delicious, which those are a part of the same family. Yeah, those are the better ones that he had, yeah. What things did you learn from Mark that, you know, that you're taking with you now is you're the head guy. Just a horseman, a lot of just a lot of horsemanship. Marquis, he always figured, you know, if the horse did want to do it, or just figuring out the horse and figure out what the horse liked. That's what I've learned a lot about that from Mark. How do you do that? You know, if they go, I mean, if they're going out, if they're going out and training and they're come back happy, I mean, they like it. And if they come back with their head and between their legs and they don't seem to give their refusing or if they're going on the track, spinning around and that they don't, you know, they don't like it, something's going on. You got to figure something else out, some to do something different with them. Is that something you can figure out relatively quickly? Or does it sometimes take a little time to do it? No, it's just all about the horse if it's whatever the horse likes to do. If the horse is training really good then keep on going with it, if not, then you gotta figure something else out. You know, you mentioned the name ray handled too and ray has been on this program, this trainer talk show. Tell me about working with ray and what you learned from him. Ray, he's also a really, really good horseman. And I've learned really just pick your spots with horses. He's.

"Racing radio network on every major podcast platform, including Apple podcasts and pod bean. Some selections coming in for The Kentucky Derby and Kieran McLaughlin going to be with me here shortly to look back on yesterday's Kentucky oaks, but before we do, let me update you on that poll question and it's pretty simple. I asked you, who is your pick to win The Kentucky Derby? And so many of you responding messier getting a vote, why do barrio getting a vote? Crown pride, charge it, moda gall, getting a vote. Keep them coming at HR in Twitter, horse racing radio network on Facebook and you can email the show. Mike at horse racing radio dot net. Well, yesterday was a very special day. And I told you at the top of the show, in my opinion, what we witnessed yesterday at Churchill downs is the moment of the year in thoroughbred racing. It is going to take one heck of a moment over the next several months to top what we saw yesterday with the coach D Wayne Lucas winning a 5th Kentucky oaks 40 years after settling his first Kentucky oaks winner, and it was very special for somebody who worked with the coach at the beginning of his career, had a successful training career and now is the agent for jockey Louis sieze, who was a board secret oath yesterday at Churchill. That is trainer Kira maclachlan. Now jockey agent Karen McLaughlin, he's with me now here on the horse racing radio network. Kieran, good morning and congratulations. Thank you very much, Mike. It was a very special day that will be tough to top for us for sure. It was a special to see Darnell back in the winter circle of the Kentucky oaks, wasn't it? Yes, it was great. I was with him when we won back with seaside attracts and I had her on the wall and so it was pretty wild. I didn't realize it was that long in between without another win because he won so many big races and I was just surprised that it was a big gap for the oaks. How much does Wayne Lucas love winning when the whole world is watching? Oh, he's great. He loves it and he's just like Luis said he's a legend and such a great person on and off the race track and he's been done so much for so many people and he's great for our business. What does Wayne Lucas mean to Kira McLaughlin? Well, he gave me a great education as I used to say he was a great coach. Great teacher, great person. I started with him in January 1985 and I left in February 92 and so it was just he did so much for me like I said on and off the track and everything that I did as a trainer after I worked for him was largely because of him. Even though I wasn't as organized as him, but he taught me a lot about taking care of horses at beating and being organized, but I wasn't a perfectionist like him, but he just is a great person and this is just such a special day yesterday to be able to pull this off. It's amazing. You mentioned the name seaside attraction who was the most recent Kentucky oaks winner for Wayne Lucas. And I say recent, that was all the way back in 1990. Wayne now has 5 and that equals the great woody Stephens for most wins in the history of the Kentucky oaks. Karen put me there with you yesterday. As you're watching secret oath come through the stretch, just walk me through what's going through your mind. Well, when we had talked to Lisa and I had talked about post one being a little bit of a negative, but I said it looks like there'll be three or four clear and go and then you can hopefully have a gap there and he wrote a perfectly and just what we hope would happen. He got her outside down the backside and Wayne said the same thing and I was a little concerned that she was she took off a little quicker than to have mild pull to the three eighths while I was a little concerned that she just goes and runs out 11, 8, maybe a little bit before you want her to. But she took off and it was like, wow, this is unbelievable. My wife and I, Larry, who did work for Wayne two back in 1986. We were just jumping up and down and it just tears coming to our eyes. It was just very, very special. How do you sum up the legacy of D Wayne Lucas? It's very hard to all the people that he has helped along the way. It's amazing. He started with more than one division back in the 80s and it's really he was probably the first one to do that. And the neat thing was he didn't ever have a 101 location. He supported many racetracks, 40 in California, 40 at Churchill 40 at mama at 40 at balmain. And we then had 40 up Saratoga and we would move the horses around. I remember how was that mom that training in one got a source shin and I told him that I needed to stop on her and he's okay let me I'll get back to so he talks around you Brad saw up at Saratoga and Randy said he had a nice New Jersey Brett Philly he would send down to mom at when I sent that went up. So I sent that one up and down came open mind and the van and so it was a good trade for me, but what you end up being champion and that she was in New Jersey brand is why she came to mom. But it was just a we worked so well together his son Jeff at the time Dallas Stewart Todd, Mark hennig. So many of us work together so well. And it was great. What he had a great effect on all of us. A positive. Yeah, and all the names you just mentioned, Mark Henning Todd pletcher, all class acts. Everybody who has represented themselves and the sport perfectly over the years and throughout their career, I mentioned this earlier and this might have gotten lost on some people. Todd pletcher, who is also a very good friend of yours. You're going to ride for him in The Kentucky Derby later today. We'll talk about that in a minute. But Todd, who, as you mentioned, also worked for Wayne. Waited for Wayne to come back from the winner's circle in the trophy presentation yesterday just to make sure that he could congratulate him on that win. And let's face it, he beat Todd on the square yesterday in the Kentucky oaks, but that just shows you the respect, the reverence. And the absolute class that a guy like Todd pletcher and all of those who work for Wayne Lucas have had over the years. Yes. That was says a lot right there. And that's Todd. And he wanted to make sure that he congratulated Wayne and it was very special and that's what he's all about very classy and we all work together and it was really a neat moment. I know Kieran that there were probably some very special things said between you and Wayne after the race and a lot of that is probably very personal. But is there something you can share about those conversations you've had with him since that win in the oaks? Well, it's just probably the neater conversations were he's not a great texter. So it was pretty neat that he I spoke to him almost every day twice a day. Since I was trying to get on the Philly after the Arkansas Derby and then when we made them out when he asked Louise to come and work or at 5 a.m. and he was in Lexington so I had to wake up Luisa three 30 to make sure he got there. So just talking to him every day was great again because sometimes you text him and he didn't text back. But it was great when I was trying to get on the Philly. He told me that he really liked Luis Contreras and he was working with him and I felt that he was coaching him and I said, okay, great. But.

"Of those two horses epicenter or zanden will find themselves wearing the Garland later today. I don't even know if table will. But taba has been overlooked all week long. We haven't heard many people talking about table. They have dismissed taba. Undefeated a perfect two for two, but everybody has dismissed tava because of the lack of experience. Only one horse in the history of The Kentucky Derby and they have to go back to the 1800s. Has won The Kentucky Derby with just two starts. You're saying there's a chance. There's a chance, it's not a good chance, but there's a chance. But I do think taba can be in the mix. Whether taba is good enough to win this or not, is a whole another story. We'll find out later today. But I think tabe is talent. I think the numbers that taba has been running, stack up very well against the rest of the field, but this is a whole different type of race. John Velasquez joined us on our Derby countdown show earlier this week. John Velasquez is going to ride messier, who was beaten by tava in that Santa Anita Derby last time out. Johnny talked about the fact that in the Santa Anita Derby, he had to be cognizant of forbidden kingdom. And not letting him loose on the lead. Messier was about the only horse in the race that had to speed to stick with forbidden kingdom. So Johnny had to ride messier differently than he will ride messier in The Kentucky Derby later today, which may have aided taba. In that race. Maybe. We'll find out. We're going to find out exactly how good it is. But I think that's a little bit surprising, because tava has not been a horse on many people's lists. Not many people came on our Derby countdown program and talked about taba other than his Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who does think he has a chance. He thinks he can put him in a position. Assuming he breaks well, he can get him in a position where, hey, look, he's going to have a shot turning for home. And that's all you can ask for. But taba and epicenter currently the 5 to one co favorites for The Kentucky Derby. I believe when I last looked, I think messier was 7 to one, zanden, who was the morning line favorite all the way up to 8 to one right now, and that's a little shocking to me. Very surprising, because I think zanden has a better shot than epicenter. Although epicenter would be a cool story, too. I started talking about Dwayne Lucas at the top of the show. Well, Steve asim. Probably the greatest trainer never to win The Kentucky Derby. I mean, look, the guy's the greatest trainer in the history of the sport in terms of wins, right? No trainer has saddled more winners in the history of the sport than Steve asim, but he's never won The Kentucky Derby. Another indication of just how hard it is to win this race. And if epicenter wins, that would be another great storyline. I still don't think it tops the Wayne Lucas storyline. We saw yesterday in terms of the moment of the year. But it's pretty good. I'm also interested in horses that aren't getting a lot of respect. Why do barrio, for example? The Florida Derby winner cyber knife, the Arkansas Derby winner. What about mo Donald, the woodwind, simplification, who won the fountain of youth earlier this year. We've talked all along about this being a wide open Derby, and it certainly is. And you look at the early wagering and I'll update you on all 20 horses later in the program. This is wide open. And I'm going to spend plenty of time talking about that. And of course, as I mentioned, looking back on yesterday's Kentucky oaks over the course of the next three hours. So here's what's coming up. We are celebrating dream big week, presented by windstar and we've been doing that all week long on our social media on all of our shows on our two E. Newsletters, which by the way, you can sign up for on our website. Celebrating always dreaming, the 2017 Derby winner, and Elliott Walden is going to join me from win star coming up in just a few minutes at 8 15 eastern. We'll talk about always dreaming and the start that he's getting off to with his stallion career. Now that he has his first crop of two year olds. Scott Shapiro is a twin spires handicapper does a fantastic job. He'll be with me at 8 35 to walk through the Derby and some of the undercard stakes too. It's a huge day of racing, kicks off at ten 30 eastern. So Scott will be here at 8 35. At 9 o'clock, again, Kira McLaughlin going to step into the show and looking forward to talking with him. And then after that, you're going to hear from some of the major players that we caught up with throughout the week. Brad Cox Todd pletcher, safi Joseph junior, Christophe lamer, who will ride the Japanese horse crown pride. A lot of people leaning his direction. Mike Smith and Johnny V, all of those soundbites, and their thoughts on their contenders coming up later today. We'll be heard in our number two of the program..

"Grade three ghost sapper three weeks ago, one by fearless? You'll try to take his show on the road in the Oak Lawn handicap tomorrow at Oklahoma park. Welcome back to the weekend stakes preview presented by naira betts, Bobby Newman bob nastanovich going over a dozen big races from around the country this weekend, including those three big races at Oklahoma park. We already touched on the grade one apple blossom. They've got two others to look at, bob. The Oak Lawn stakes and the Oak Lawn handicap. We'll start with the Oak Lawn stakes. It's race number 8 on the card tomorrow. Three year olds going a mile in one 8th, a $150,000 on the line. Field of 7 going to the gate. Morning line favorite is stellar tap. By the way, the winner of tomorrow's Oak Lawn stakes gets an automatic bid to the Preakness, assuming that he is Triple Crown nominated and the morning line favorite stellar tap fits that Bill. Yeah, no, I think he's interesting in here. On paper to me, this looks like a pretty weak renewal of this race. I don't think it's a very old race, but I just can't see I think it would take a pretty dominant performance by a horse in here to sort of rock the Preakness boat. That being said, I have a feeling that cooch are named after the golfer Matt, I presume. The three horse bred by windstar and still partially owned by them and uncle mo co out of a very good mayor streak early I'm pretty sure one that called her oaks back in the day. Rudy Brissette and florent Giroud when they hook up for years now. They've been a very successful combo. This horse when he won by a nose, breaking his maid on March 13th at Oak Lawn. He might have just been looked like he was kind of starting to get his act together. He definitely finished really strongly showed determination has come out of there with a steady series of works. I think he's an emergency emerging talent. I think it's very interesting that Rudy reaches for the blinkers here, which he's done at least in a recent sample sample pretty successfully. I think that he's going to lay very close to the pace under Giroux and I think he's, I think he's going to kick on. I think he's going to win this race. If he wins impressively enough, it would not be surprised to see him turn up in the Preakness. Okay, so kuchar for bob, I'm also going to try to beat stellar tap with number one, clancy's pistol. Now, clancy's pistol ran against stellar tap in an allowance race on April 1st at Oakland park. Stellar tap was the three to 5 favorite that day and finished second in the race. Clancy's pistol was right behind him at three to one in the price. And he finished 5th. They were only about two and a half lengths a part of the wild, but clancy's pistol had a wide trip that day, and I think with the inside post, he should be able to save ground at least around the first turn, Ramon Vasquez back in town, he rides regularly at Oklahoma, but he's trying to shift his tack for more than just a temporary basis to Southern California, but back for the big card tomorrow at Oakland. He's back aboard clancy's pistol who's going to be a much better price tomorrow than he was last time out. And to me, he's really not that far behind stellar tap and I agree with what your initial assessment vibe is. This is not the most phenomenal field we've ever seen. It's a very evenly matched field. I'd really be shocked if any of these horses were good enough to beat the real good horses coming out of the Derby that run in the Preakness. The winner of this race actually goes to the Preakness next. But we're both going to try to beat the favorite bob going with number three kuchar. I'm going with number one clancy's pistol in tomorrow's Oak Lawn stakes race number 8. That race not to be confused with the grade two Oak Lawn handicap, which is the 11th race on the card. And this is the second of $2 million races on tomorrow's card at Oklahoma and park four year olds and up a mile and an 8th we've got a field of 8 going to post bob. You've got a couple of very consistent runners in fearless and plainsmen who are the two favorites on the morning line for a lack of better to put it bluntly. They almost never run bad races. These two horses. And then you've got the old 9 year old rated R superstar who is back in the best form of his life coming off a nice win in the grade three Essex, his most recent start. No, he ran by rated our superstar ran by plainsman in one convincingly on March 19th and obviously of all the places he's raced and he's in his 59 races. This will be his 22nd start at Oak Lawn park. He'll be going for his 6 win there and he's very close to winning a million of his one near 1.6 million at this racetrack. So owner Danny Caldwell was his last chance to run the 5 rated R superstar Oklahoma this year. And this is his racetrack. So if you like him, I can't imagine him not running a race. It's been a long time. In fact, it was in the Oakland handicap last year. When he just had a wide trip and he ran into a horse that was on fire then went on to win the Met mile. Was something getting the name wrong there. I know silver state was on a roll. I think he came out of this race and won the Met mile. He did, he beat nicks go in the Met mile and I'm not sure if there was a race in between, but whatever. He was, I think, because I think the Met mile was his 6 win in a row, but he was just whatever and rampant form. Since then, with the possible exception of the corn husker last July at Prairie, which I don't think is rated our superstars favorite track. Although he's very capable there, Oak Lawn is. I expect him to fire a huge shot. I'd be amazed if he wasn't in the top three, but my top selection here is going to be the four horse idol. You mentioned just a minute ago that Ramon Vasquez is trying to shift his stack to Southern California while I'm sure he wants to make a big impression on Richard baltis here. And bring home this pretty substantial prize. He won the big cap last year, idol is very talented and lightly raised towards he's just had 7 runs. He's a 5 year old. I think the fault just feels like he's got him back to his best. He's going to take a shot in here. Like his tactical speed and I think he'll make a big impression here and what are the nice price? All right, 6 to one on idle for bob in the Oakland handicap. In my mind, this is a gigantic question mark race for me. I'm convinced that fearless is the best horse in this race. I think almost every race he runs would make him the horse to beat. His regular rider is Louis syes, whose been aboard his last four starts, two wins, two second place finishes, including a 6th victory in the ghost sapper last time out. Luis sayas does not make the trip to Oakland for this $1 million Oakland handicap. He's riding the card at Keenan tomorrow. Now he does ride 7 or 8 horses at keelan, including channel maker in the elkhorn. But if you add up the purses of all the races that Luis say is riding tomorrow at Keenan, it doesn't amount to the $1 million purse of the Oakland handicap. And I don't understand this. And obviously you get a very good replacement in Jose Ortiz, some people would say even a better writer in Jose Ortiz. It seems like an odd thing that Luis si is not writing this horse. And it's bothering me probably more than it should. Because to me, if you're the 9 to 5 favorite in a $1 million race, that's where you're going to ride. And it doesn't seem like it doesn't seem like something where Todd Fletcher just out of the blue 7 days ago said, you know what we're going to run fearless in the Oakland handicap and Kira McLaughlin Louis si as Jason said, I'm sorry. I got 7 calls of keenland. I can't ride them..

"It's not the manual labor and going out to the track and worrying about the horses every day. So it's fun, but it is long hours. You ever miss training? Yeah, at times at times. I went to the Pegasus, my brother and Biden made down for the day to a suite. So letting I went down and Aaron was working. So we got to see her and it was fun to be there on the day and see people and watch the races. I miss it at times, but all the regulations and the expenses relate to visas and things that went on, that drove me away from training. I don't miss. Well, as you can hear, Karen mclachlan working hard, even on the agent side. You heard him say his phone starts going off at 5 36 30 in the morning. I can tell you Karen, if people are trying to get a hold of me at that hour, they're getting voicemail. Yes, I often have it on silent because I do have a wife in the room with me. So I get up. But I don't get up quite as early as I used to, I get up at 5 to add times and then 6 at times, but I'm up pretty early all the time. All right, let's talk about a couple of these other stakes horses that you'll be aboard later today. Girl with a dream is in the forward gal. You're an equal opportunity agent of the 5 stakes races that Luis will be riding in. You were arriving for 5 different trainers. And here we go. Brad Cox will settle girl with a dream. Luis will be a board for the first time. Tell me about this horse. Bradley wise board called me and asked me if I would ride her and tell me about her before the nominations came out. So I agreed to it and then Brad called to confirm a few days later. So just looking at the form and looking at her, I was happy to be on her. Do you prefer to name Luis on a horse that he has never written before or do you prefer to choose one that he's familiar with? Well, usually if we've been riding one, I would have told them where tied up. So, no, I want to ride live horses and eat bits of mall, whether they come from last or and if they fit in a race, we're happy to be on. I'm not just trying to pick a lot of horses. How about opalina in the sweetest chant? That's a good story as aging and goes. The chain are calm and asked me to ride her in the Ginger brew January 1st and I had a call and I told him I'm sorry. I have a call. The two days before entries, my Philly got sick. So I called him back and I said, you know, we're open now. I'm sure you point already have a jockey. He's a no, no, no, I want you. Let me work it out. And the document took off was Paco Lopez and Paco Lopez won a steak that day and we finished third. But I thought there was a few reasons to ask him to ride her back. She was really wound up that day and a few excuses. So I checked back with him and we were able to drive her again today. Talking with the camera McLaughlin here on the horse racing radio network. He's busy. It's a very busy day for him and his rider. Luis Sia, so Kira, I won't keep you much longer. But I would be remiss if I didn't bring up the fact. And I touched on the earlier that you are tied with Nick zito as a trainer for the most wins in the holy bull stakes with three. You are just one behind the record in the withers having saddled for the record is 5. You have had a lot of success in these prep races as we look at giant game in the holy bolt today the type of horse it takes to win these types of Derby preps and hopefully make their way to the twins buyers on the first Saturday in May. What type of horse are you looking for now on the agent side of things? Well, like I said, we were lucky that we were out of time and he has a lot of nice three year olds, but he only was running one of his race. And so Dale Romans is very live horse and we're happy to be on it. He was starting to breeders cup. So he fits very well and should he win today. We'll have tougher decisions going forward, but we hope we get those tough decisions. Yeah, well obviously you know the type of horse it takes to win these types of races and get to The Kentucky Derby. What are some of the characteristics you're hoping to find in these horses as you're looking to get the right mount for Luis? Well, you want to know the trainers and the people person with trainers I like to ride for the trainers that win these type of races and the horses and the pedigrees. And I use rigorous and sheets to help me decide sometimes when it's close between horses and thorough manage or boats. I have two numbers and programs that help me decide which one is the best horse to ride. That's given the opportunity. Kira McLaughlin, ladies and gentlemen, Kieran, all the best today and going forward. Keep it rolling. You're doing a fantastic job and I'm so happy for you and for the team. Thank you very much for having me. Thanks for everything you do for our sport. Thank you, my friend. Always great to catch up. Karen McLaughlin here on HR N I'll be back to get you ready for our number three. I'm going to give you the phone number to call in because the phone lines will open in just about 5 minutes from right now. Your chance to talk with jockey Jose Ortiz and take over the show. You be.
