Kurt Becker <Speech_Male> for his stroll through <Speech_Male> racing history segment <Speech_Male> and Dale Romans <Speech_Male> and Tim wilkin, you just <Speech_Male> heard them a few <Speech_Male> minutes ago with <Speech_Male> I ask <Silence> they answer. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Dave Friedman, it has <Speech_Male> been a joy to <Speech_Male> have you aboard <Speech_Male> to co host the program <Speech_Male> with me this morning. <Speech_Male> Our listeners <Speech_Male> will hear much more of you <Speech_Male> in the weeks have had. <Speech_Male> But really <Speech_Male> excited to <Speech_Male> welcome you to the equine <Speech_Male> forum family and <Speech_Male> man, it's <Speech_Male> great to hear <SpeakerChange> you on race day <Speech_Male> during the week too. <Speech_Male> Well, I appreciate <Speech_Male> you having me. I <Speech_Male> had a great time. <Speech_Male> I just saw Naomi <Speech_Male> on the <Speech_Male> TV where <Speech_Male> 8 minutes away <Speech_Male> from the early <Speech_Male> pick 5 at <Speech_Male> pimlico today, <Speech_Male> obviously pre <Speech_Male> this day is a tremendous <Speech_Male> day of wagering. <Speech_Male> So Mike, <Speech_Male> thanks for having me <Speech_Male> and best of <SpeakerChange> luck in your <Speech_Male> handicapping this afternoon. <Speech_Male> Yeah, okay, <Speech_Male> so I'm not letting <Speech_Male> you off that easy. <Speech_Male> So the pick <Speech_Male> of the day <Speech_Male> from day <Speech_Male> Friedman who <Speech_Male> spends hours and <Speech_Male> hours handicapping <Speech_Male> a single card. And I <Speech_Male> know you put your time in <Speech_Male> today too. <Speech_Male> Who is the <Speech_Male> pick of the day <Speech_Male> at pimlico? And <Speech_Male> then who wins the <Speech_Male> Preakness? <Speech_Male> Boy, you're putting me on <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> putting me on <Speech_Male> the hot seat here. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Don't you wish <SpeakerChange> I didn't <Speech_Male> have two minutes left <Speech_Music_Male> in the show? <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> I mean, I think <Speech_Male> Chad Brown source <Speech_Male> who's going to be an enormous <Speech_Male> favorite <Speech_Male> in the <Speech_Male> galette <Speech_Male> technical analysis <Speech_Male> is a <Speech_Male> stone cold single. <Speech_Male> I don't think <Speech_Male> they're going to beat <Speech_Male> that horse <Speech_Male> today. I'm looking <Speech_Male> to try to find <Speech_Male> a long shot <Speech_Male> here in the first <SpeakerChange> leg <Speech_Male> of the early sequence. <Speech_Male> In <Speech_Male> the late pick 5 <Speech_Male> today, <Speech_Male> though, it's <Speech_Male> interesting to me <Speech_Male> what Naomi had <Speech_Male> to say because I actually <Speech_Male> see several <Speech_Male> of those races <Speech_Male> rather differently, <Speech_Male> but the <Speech_Male> Preakness, to me, <Speech_Male> it's pretty <Speech_Male> simple. It's <Speech_Male> either you think <Speech_Male> Chad brown's <Speech_Male> horse can go wired <Speech_Male> a wire <Speech_Male> or you think epicenter <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> the best of <Speech_Male> the bunch by a pretty significant <Speech_Male> margin. Everybody <Speech_Male> else and <Speech_Male> there are a couple of good ones. <Speech_Male> I really like simplification <Speech_Male> quite <Speech_Male> a bit. I completely <Speech_Male> understand <Speech_Male> why someone would like <Speech_Male> secret oath, but <Speech_Male> to me <Speech_Male> the Chad Brown <Speech_Male> horse with the extra <Speech_Male> rest who's going to be a FrontRunner <Speech_Music_Male> perhaps without <Speech_Music_Male> a lot of pace pressure <Speech_Music_Male> and <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> epicenter. <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> Those two make <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> the most sense. <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> Dave, you're back in the <Speech_Music_Male> saddle with me <Speech_Music_Male> on this show <Speech_Music_Male> in two weeks <Speech_Music_Male> the week prior to the <Speech_Music_Male> Belmont stakes and then <Speech_Music_Male> folks will hear you Belmont <Speech_Music_Male> morning as well. <Speech_Music_Male> And in the meantime, <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> they can head over <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> to our website to <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> get a schedule <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> for our shows the rest <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> of the week.

"888-966-4776, the number to call. If you've ever wanted to talk to a Hall of Fame trainer, here is your chance. I give you access to Mark Cassie here this morning on the equine forum. Mark, we did have another question come in via social media, let's see, please ask mark if he thinks his entry in today's tenth race at Belmont, cotton has shown improvement leading up to his four year old debut today. So what say you, Mark Cassie? I think both those horses are both training good for this year. And our training really well. Right now, I'm one of the we had Trevor McCarthy. He was named on cool Alabama and obviously he got hurt yesterday. So we're still without a rider at this current time. So that's something I'm going to deal with. As soon as I get off the show, man, that's just one of the things, right? We see you in the panic. We see you in the winner circle. All of those other things that go on behind the scenes, the trainers have to deal with. There's a multitude of things. What we have today, I think we have about 15 horses running all over North America and it's just a constant, you know, there's always something going on, obviously we're braised a lot of horses, we bring some papa cap this morning in Kentucky and there's always a lot of things going on. But it keeps me busy, I kind of on command central, everything comes through me. It's my job to help, you know, I talk with the owners and also put out the fires. There's lots of fires. Well, Mark no surprise that our first phone call would come north of the border in Toronto, and that's Lou and Toronto who is on the line now has a question from Mark Cassie. Lou, go ahead. You're hosting the show. You're on with Mark. Good morning. Mister Cassie, a pleasure having you on the show this morning. I have a question with you about the Lexie Lou. I was there that day and I was given the honor and with your grace allowing us and the Bayesian people to come with Patrick's friends and take a photo. And that was my first queen's plate with you. And I would like to know you were beaming that day. So that must have been your favorite moment. Come on, Mark. Really? Well, luckily, Lou, I've had a lot of favorite moments, but I mean Lexie Lou was definitely right up there. I'm really proud of her too. I don't know if you know, but she just she just produced a grade one winner in Japan. Last weekend. So her legacy continues. But I will never forget, you know, Dan Liddell, the old announcer for wood buying, he told me that when he leaned out and when he said, Lexie Lou moves on the outside, he said he's never ever felt the response from the crowd, you know, the cheer when he said that. And I'll always remember that. And it was our first queen's play, which for Gary barber, who has been so instrumental in so many of our successes, including war of will. So yeah, it was a great day, Luke. I'm glad you could be part of it. All right, we will appreciate the phone call. We'll go out to New Jersey next. Eric is in New Jersey. Eric go ahead. You're hosting the show. You're on with Mark Cassie. Hi, Mark. I'm a big fan, and usually make me a lot of money what you two year olds. But I just have a quick question. What win in your career do you cherish the most? Was it worth will or kept in winning the Queen and ask Scott? A long time to think about it. At the time, I didn't realize how big it was. I think probably, you know, the race that royal ascot. It was just such a great performance by tepp and obviously any time you win a classic, it's big. But they run free classics every year. A lot of trainers have won the Triple Crown races, but to win that race, the Queen Anne at royal ascot was, I think, one of our biggest accomplishments. Dave Friedman with you on the equine forum Mike Pena experiencing some technical difficulties and we're joined by Hall of Famer Mark Cassie. What was the whole experience going to ask Scott like? My wife Tina describes it best. It was The Kentucky Derby on steroids. It's just, it's amazing. And then a funny to give you a little funny story about. So we won with tap and the press coverage afterwards was just unbelievable. I did interviews for Dubai for Japan for China. I mean, everywhere at the end of it, I mean, I said, when do I get to meet the queen? And they said, you missed her. And I said, I miss. I wanted to meet the queen. And so the next day, the racing post interviewed me and they said, will you come back? I said, only if I get to meet the queen. So the next year, we brought liberty love Cornell over for a race at royal ascot and I was up in the box and it was about maybe the first or second race and a representative the queen came to our box and said, the queen would like to meet you. And so my wife and my son and I and the oxleys went and met the queen and it was quite an experience. All right, Dave, I am back and apologies for the technical difficulties, but Mark Cassie is one of us here. Mike, yeah, how about that, huh? Try having headsets on when that happened. Oh, my goodness. Yeah, I'm here. I don't know, I might be deaf for the rest of my life, but I'm definitely here. Mark Cassie is still here and you are hosting the show, HR and nation 888-966-4776 and that's the number to call to talk to Mark Cassie. Chris in Michigan sends an email and I think it's the same question you just had from Eric in New Jersey about your top moment in racing Mark, but is there another moment outside of tepin or war will and all the top horses that for whatever reason is always going to be special to you? That's a good question. I don't know, there's so many of my and for different reasons. I don't know. You got me on that one. I'd have to think about that a little bit more. Obviously, the big ones, the world approvals. It was nice.

"Poll question today at HR N on Twitter. So many of you taking time to weigh in on this and I appreciate that. Who wins today's Preakness? It's pretty simple, straightforward, gave you a few choices, epicenter, early voting, secret oath, or other. And if you choose other specify and let us know who you think it is so far, epicenter leading the way the morning line favorite has 37% of the vote from HR and nation 29% going to the Philly secret oath and just 23% for early voting, which is slightly surprising, but I guess not really secret oath looks like she could be, you know, the real deal. She's a major player in there. And I think those are the three logical horses in this year's Preakness. So I guess not surprising to see the way the votes are coming in. But everybody thinking that the Derby runner up epicenter gets his redemption today and we'll take the middle jewel of the Triple Crown. Mark Cassie is with us now. This is the segment where I turn the show over to you for about the next 15 minutes. You can call in and talk to Mark directly. The phone number is 888-966-4776. That is 8 8 8 9 6 6 HR N Mark welcome my friend appreciate you taking a few minutes. Thank you for having me, Mike. You know I was we played a little Montage of some of your greatest wins as we were opening the third hour of the show. And, you know, there have been so many memorable moments, but I was talking earlier about war of will and that Preakness stakes and how special that day must have been for you. Oh, it was for so many reasons. You know, obviously, everything that happened in The Kentucky Derby and the disqualification and, you know, I thought we were interfered with significantly. And then after the Derby, that track was wet that day and his feet really were bothering. So I really didn't, I wasn't sure I was going to run more well until the morning of the Preakness. I had kind of went along. I didn't say much. But I was still wanting him to show me that he was back to himself. And obviously, we did, and it was one of our greatest victories, for sure. Yeah, you know, we did a listener Larry and Louisville sent an email and he said, ask Mark, what on earth he was thinking at the top of the stretch in The Kentucky Well, it's interesting you say that because so what we usually do is Mike we watch the race normally the Derby from the paddock. It's the one way we can kind of get our entire family together. There's about 20 of us there. And at about the mid turn, you know, about the three eighths pull Norman Norman put his arm around me and said dad, you're going to win The Kentucky Derby. Because it just looked like the war will was loaded. And then I had some cameras on me and when the incident happened, I said a really bad word, and I thought, I think my mom's watching. So we went from the thrill of victory, you know, what we thought we had a big shot to, you know, just being happy, I truly, is frustrating it was for him to be interfered with. I was just happy after the race that he was okay. And for everybody, because it could have been ugly. If he went down, it would have been the worst disaster in Kentucky Derby history. Well, there have been so many great moments in the career of dual.

"I think this is a wide open race. I think you can go in a variety of ways, the favorite has won on synthetic, has one on turf is coming off a long layoff and wasn't embarrassed in a grade one race last time out going longer. So if you like that Mark Cassie runner makes complete sense to me, another mark Cassie option a brita number four awful long layoff cutting back. Boy, doesn't this spot look a little bit like what we saw when in October going away, winning by two lengths at a 7 to two, certainly has the races that put her right in there. I think number 5 parlance asked me since horse, the big question is synthetic. Steve is one for his last 62 on synthetic surfaces, but I think the race is at Oakland Parker every bit as good as the ones the local horses have been running in and parlance is interesting, but I went with ward's horse, miss a large city who I just liked the versatility. One on dirt, one on turf. I think he does a good job on synthetic scoring it over a 30% rate. He also does a good job off a layoff and was facing better to back Santa Anita against forbidden kingdom and company. Missile larceny for me and what should be a fun race because he can go a lot of different ways. All right, miss alacrity for Dave number three of the Wesley ward trainee three to one on the morning line. I got a little chalk to wipe off my face as I'm sticking with the favored Mark Cassie Philly diabolic. I just think she's been facing better. She's been off for a while, but she's been working steadily in Florida for her return 6 works down to Cassie's training center in Florida before shipping up to woodbine in a couple of fast works over the mud by and made track for her 2022 return. I liked what I saw from her winning the my dear back in July on this synthetic surface and I think a repeat of that race makes her tough to be diabolic for me, miss alacrity for Dave in the star shoot race 8 tomorrow at woodvine. We're going to take our final break. When we come back, we're going to dive into the Sunday action. We've got a stake at Belmont, stake at San Anita, and one at wood bind to look at.

"Hey everyone, it's the baron with this week's north of the border report presented by woodbine entertainment. Chuck's suppose a four year old daughter of verrazzano goes after her first added money win in Saturday's grade two $175,000 Bess Arabian steaks Atwood vine. The 7 for a long main track feature for Phillies and mayors three year olds and up has drawn 9 starters including juxtapose, trained by Steve Owens, the Kentucky bread, heads into her second straight steak state after notching a third in the grade three Ontario matron on October 10th. That effort came after a 7 for a long grass win, the 6th of her career. The dark bay brings a record of 6 zero and three from 13 starts into the bessarabian where owners James retta cop and step on ferrario.

"You're somebody who looks at those things, maybe she's trending toward one of her bigger efforts on Sunday. I ended up going with the Todd Fletcher trainee. Don't call me Mary. She's another one she didn't run great last time out in the grade two gallant bloom. In fact, she ran right behind Lake avenue that day. The difference is Lake avenue was two to one, and don't call me Mary, was 9 to one. So it was more of a surprisingly not great effort by Lake avenue than maybe don't call me, Mary. That being said, I think don't call me Mary is going to get the right pace scenario to run at. And I like the fact that Luis sias, who has written her in the past, is getting back aboard, so don't call me merry for me in division two of the pumpkin pie, where are you ending up? I'm going with lady rocket. I watched that race 5 times this morning. I watched the head on. I watched the normal look. Lady rocket to me has the worst trip and still performs better than don't call me Mary and Lake avenue. When Lake avenue wins, I'll just put my hands on my hips and go, well, I should have known it's a horse I like. But to me, lady rocket was just clearly better than those two rivals last time out. I'm not sure why that shouldn't be the case today also. Well, there doesn't always work out quite that way. If the horse is always finished the way that we expected them to run every favorite would win every race. And we know that that's not true that the favorites win about a third of the time. So who knows if that'll if that'll work out? Lady rocket for Dave don't call me Mary for me in race number 8 Sunday at Belmont division two of the pumpkin pie. Let's head north of the border to woodbine. They've got a nice grated stake on Sunday as well. It's the grade three $150,000 Ontario Derby three year olds going a mile in one 8th on their main track and of course they have a synthetic main track there. And a good field of 8 here and not the most consistent bunch of three year olds we've ever seen. This is tough. This is some serious handicapping to try to figure out who is going to run well in this particular situation, meaning on the synthetic going a mile in an 8th trying to find a horse with some sort of consistency a reason to like someone, I think it's wide open and the race really lacks speed. So I want somebody that's going to be close up. If you told me who is going to have the lead, I'd probably just go ahead and pick that horse. It's possible that S.W.A.T. analysis from Mark Cassie, I just don't have any clue whether that course wants to go a mile in an 8th and I understand they supplemented S.W.A.T. analysis into this field, but the one that I feel most confident is going to be forwardly placed and have a reasonable run at it is gold or grand also for Mark Cassie who's been running very well since they put him on the synthetic surface three races ago. Okay, so you like the two Mark Cassie runners, gold or grand and S.W.A.T. analysis. I'm going to go with a horse who doesn't have any speed, but I know has races that can beat this field. And that's number 5 rip tide rock. In my mind, rip tide rock is just better on the synthetic main track than he is everywhere else. They've tried them on the turf. He's all right, he's not great. He's fine. They've tried them on conventional dirt. He's just okay. His two races on the main track the synthetic main track at woodbine to me are far and away better than any of his other races, including a narrow defeat in this year's queen's plate, the biggest race of the year and every year up at woodbine for the three year old. So I think riptide rock is just a different horse on synthetic than he is on any other surface. He gets back to what I'm thinking is his best surface on Sunday. And I'm going to look for rip tide rock to find his way back to the winner's circle in the grade three Ontario Derby race 8 on Sunday's woodbine card goes at approximately four 30 Eastern Time. We're going to take our final break when we come back. We'll have to Churchill downs and out west of San Anita for their Sunday action. You're listening to the weekend states preview presented by nyra betts on the horse racing radio.

"Had great affection for. Sleepy eyes, Todd. I've never quite gotten it. I mean, the winds, Charles town, and kind of the second tier races at Gulfstream park, beating forensic fire is certainly not bad, but that's not a huge marker of being an amazing horse to me. And king theory kind of the same thing, right? That was going to be the wise sky horse that Kentucky Derby ended up not running. And his wins are they're kind of fair, okay. Now, obviously, like the fact that he has to win it, king Linda, probably the biggest race of his career was 18 to one in the Lexington. That's what was going to set him up for The Kentucky Derby. So for me, it comes down to the other two you mentioned independence hall and code of honor. I tried so hard to pick coda honor in here. Dropping horse that's made $2.9 million. I just can't get over the fact oh for 5 at this distance and I don't want to take a low price. So I ended up with independence hall almost by process of illumination, which is probably not the way you should be picking horses. No, but it is the way you have to pick them sometimes, especially if you don't have a strong conviction in the race, and I'm kind of with you. I don't really love any money in this race. I think there are four or 5 of them that have a chance on their day. I picked code of honor. I can honestly say, I'm not sure I've ever picked coat of honor in top on any race he's ever run. And since he's one 7 out of his 18 starts, he obviously has proved me wrong. Many, many times. Now, he hasn't won a lot lately. He did win the islan over at Monmouth park, a grade three field that let's face it was not nearly as strong as what he is going to see tomorrow. I'm not sure if his best days aren't well behind him. I know they're behind him. I just don't know how far behind him they are. But he's worked at keenland, even though he's never raced at keeneland. And I like the fact that he picks up the top jock and Tyler gaffe Leone. I think there could be pace in the race. So I'm going to try code of honor for the first time in my handy capping career. Good luck to win. Yeah, exactly. To win the grade two Faye at tomorrow at keeneland goes as the 9th race on their card. Let's head way out west out to the great race place in Santa Anita, where they're going to be running the grade three autumn miss for the three year old Philly's going a mile on the turf, a $100,000 on the line field of 8 set to go to post. And it's another race Dave where even though it's not a big field, there are a few different ways you can go. I think this is a really good race. I think ego trip madone, Spanish love affair and zero tolerance, the four outside courses are all more than viable. In fact, I think you would be well off with any of them. You'd have a good reason to bet any of them. Ego trip is the one that maybe others wouldn't be quite as excited about a maiden over three. But I thought ego trip who finished third in Lake placid at Saratoga on August 21st was flattered by the race that Spanish love affair came back and won. Spanish love affair was fourth in that Lake placid, went off at 30 to one in a $150,000 stakes race at Belmont and one going away. Trainer Mark Cassie said, we're coming out west because the horse wants firm going and that's where I ended up with Spanish love affair to kind of continue what has been a really good response to the firm going last time out at Belmont, but I like zero tolerance too. I think this is a really high end race for this time of year before the breeders cup, but these are good horses. They're very good horses and it's just a matter of who's going to get the right trip. I picked the number 8 zero tolerance on top. She's only been sprinting thus far in her three race career, but being by mizzen mast out of an L Prado mayor, it sounds like she should be much better at going long than she is short, and she's pretty good going short, retains the top jock in flavian Pratt who's only winning at about 39% clip out at Santa Anita. Peter Miller, the trainer, always one of the ones to watch in Southern California. By the way, you mentioned trainer Mark Cassie, I mentioned Peter Miller. They're both confirmed going to be a part of our breeders cup countdown shows that Jude felt and I will co host next week from dalmar presented by hill and Dale farm. So looking forward to those shows 8 to ten a.m. Pacific time, 11 a.m. to one p.m. here on the east coast. Peter Miller will join us one day. Mark Cassie you'll join us one day in a big cast of others, probably about 15 guests and all in those three days and looking forward to those. But I'm going to pick zero tolerance on top. I actually think there's a couple sort of the inside part of the gate that have a chance as well that I would use. Number one, Eddie's new dream is only raced on the turf once in her career. It was last time out, and she was awesome that day and going a mile and an 8th and she gets the benefit of the inside post. I don't know how good she is. She could be as good as any of these. She just hasn't had the chance at 12 to one I'm going to use her. Number three, alley for fill the motto coming off a sprint going back to a route and I think she may be better routing than sprinting. I think she has a big chance as well.

And then it's also a nice Weekend racing at woodbine. And i did mention to people the win by mighty heart in the dominion day on the first and i think also snuck in Super escapes win in the trillium but Bring us up to speed especially especially mighty heart. Who feels like a very popular horse. He's very popular steve You know he's the one. I the horse of the year from last year. He went the queen's plate and the prince of wales he couldn't quite get there in the last part of the triple crown breeder stakes. But he's come back really good this year as even noted i mean he won that The blame steaks to back on the turn of churchill very game in any on the in dominion day here on july first he he got kind of an easy league but which he was supposed to on paper and he just he had a couple couple of horses glide up beside him on the far turn and he just drop in the stretch and i think he got a ninety six buyers so well what a great What agree little horse. He such a trier and Looks like he's gonna dominate the the main track division here this year going on what what What's the schedule call for for him. I did not get a chance this week to talk to josie. Yeah i've been either. I mean i think whatever To turn steak is coming up. We have a few few left in the meat of course and You know. I don't know if they're going to try the grasp with them again. He certainly deserves another chance on the grass. But he's he's he's very good on the topeka and he's no slouch on the dir either. Obviously mighty heart in the dominion day and noting the trillium going back To the The weekend when i wrapped up on friday and Super escape and The win that Denied pink lloyd super stonehenge of beat pink floyd and the that's right in that per steak the for sprint stakes of the media and i think and pink white you know. He got caught up in the race But he did work here the other day. So he's healing up nicely. And i think super stonehenge in Pinquater gonna meet again In what should be a really good matchup in. I think it's a vigil coming up A couple of weeks vigil stakes so and Super escape but was a champion older mare on the main track last year in canada and she came back with a to win the trillium again for charlotte weber and her l'aigle farm won the sovereign were last year top owner so she ran actually ran one two in the trillion. So that was. That was pretty cool. Mark cassie trained the runner up and of course trump better the the winner So that was the interesting. We looks like super case back on her back on her game. After kind of tailing off the second apple last year and She should be good for another couple of races. I think well and mike better has made a habit of of targeting and poaching The woodbine state calendar. Yeah he really has. I mean he he he. He doesn't really necessarily ship in on top of the race from fair hill. But he'll send them to sub trainer here during glennon and they're going in good job with these horses here. they'll come in. You know a week in advance or some of them. Just stay here so He's really done well with them. And i think he's got a few more bullets to fire to this year. A couple of other winners From the last week or so ten days that that caught my eye. I was happy for for Mark cassie dolder. Grand finally broke the maiden and You know it was. It was a short price but the knocking to knock into knocking on the door and i also noted on that card that was i think would have been the fourth right then saturday. Yeah on the foreign admiralty pier Winner as well for barbara mitchell. Yeah that was. That was a split of an allowance. Optional claimer that That admiral cheap your one in the horseshoe one the other division one but the same in the same time.

"All right. Jody Delhi is going to give us the odds on the Kentucky Derby race. Of course we've heard about is the law. Everybody's liked his. The law is the law. Well, there are other horses in the race. Right, Jody? That's right. Says the law is 45. This is current odds right now. They just opened the windows this morning. Ah, 25 minutes ago. This is current odds. Tis a law fortified. And then there is a pretty good distance between him and the next horses. And the next course is there's actually a pretty good distance of who are a pretty good racer. Who's the second choice right now. It would be Santa Anita Derby winner Honor AP at 8 to 1 Authentic, though, is 9 to 1. That's Bob Baffert horse who won the Haskell Tendo one Bob Baffert horse 1000 words Who won the shared beliefs. So you've got those horses? Ahh, right there. All four vying for second choice in the Derby. Let's run from the inside, post position out. We'll give you all of the odds here. A CZ. We go through it finish the fierce. The number one horse, The one eyed gilding has been scratched. He is not running in the race number two Max player, Ricardo Santana Jr. The jockey, Steve asked. Musa is the trainer Max player. Is down. 18 Toe one. He was a morning line. 30 to 1. He's back. He's been bet. Pretty good. So far enforceable. Adam. The skits of the jockey Mark Cassie is the trainer 23 to 1 down a little bit from 30 to 1 in the morning line. Storm. The court who was the breeder's Cup juvenile champion last year, Julien Les Peru is the jockey Peter Kurten is the trainer 26 to 1, Major fed James Graham and Greg fully 34 to 1. They were 50 to 1 in the morning line. Number six. King Guillermo has been scratched. Money moves. This is the one that is interesting to me. Money moves from Todd Pletcher, making just his fourth career start. Was a 32 1 in the morning line and is getting bet. Heavy. Todd Pletcher's Horse Down 15 to 1 South Bend. I don't think all the Notre Dame Ah money has come in yet on South Been 34 to 1, Tyler Gaffney, Leone and Belmont trainer. Mr Big News. Gabriel Sias trainer Brett Calhoun 47 to 1 number 10,000 words as we said 10 to 1. Number 11 Necker Island, who, by the way will have his blinkers off, so he's been running with blinkers on in his last few races. He will not wear blinkers today 51 to 1 Miguel Mania and Chris Hartman is the trainer. Soul a Valon Day. Patrick being cone Lucas Panici is the jockey Volonte 29 to 1 attachment, Right, Dale? Romans 49 the one I thought that he would actually get a bet down. I'm a little surprised that that one winning surprise winning impression is no surprise. He is 52 to 1, the longest shot on the board. Dallas Stuart and Joe Rocco. In the irons, New York traffic 15 to 1, Paco Lopez and Saffy Joseph is Ah Ah, actually, I think he's gonna end up being like the third or fourth choice when it's all said and done. Probably a little bit of a buzz horse here out here among the horseman Honore P. 8 to 1 in the 16 post position with Mike Smith. John Sheriff's is the trainer. Tis the law 4 to 5, Manny Franco and Barclay Tagg.

"Seen upset big races in the past. This is the worst that ran down continuation last time. And did it was kind of a doggedly determined run He's a horse. That's that's typical of of this bar. And he's running a lot of spots that you didn't expect him to be but he's actually run well in them and then he's GonNa be the pace to route so he's one that I wanNA throw in. That's going to be fifteen or twenty to one that that might really light up the board a little bit. I would much rather have him in a horse like war stopper who set a slow pace on a day where you wanted to be forwardly placed and got an inflated buyer figure And I think the likelihood that he duplicates that really ever again is very low but certainly loaded that almost nonexistent that he'll duplicate it in a situation like this where there's other speed signed up the only other contender that I've not talked about we're really to I would say our attachment rate and untitled attachment rates maiden win last time. Obviously throw out the timing on that race and I would be skeptical of the speed figure in addition because it's obviously way off so but that being said anything attached to the rate of says come to hand quickly for Dell Rome and clearly is improving horse and and would be dangerous in a situation where you think the the pace is going to be strong as well and untitled going back to one turn. This is probably what he's really best served doing. So we'll see if maybe an outside stocking trip is going to help him get back to. This is an interesting. This is a hard to gauge. To right because I mean he gets a big figure debut when he said an extremely soft pace against Florida breads. And you know you almost say poor mark cassie and and I would say poor marquette. Because he's got to try and figure out a way to get the source to duplicate that effort when he's not GonNa have an ideal set of circumstances so it looks as if he's taken a big step backwards but we blew the break in the in the swail.

"I'm guessing you've heard of the Kentucky Derby Abi to this race that's run usually early in May we haven't yet talked about the Kentucky Derby this year but that's about to change as we're finally starting to get into rounds of prep races that will winnow the field down to twenty for the run for the roses on May the second so to help us do that. We bring in voice. We haven't heard on this show for too long and and that's Jonathan Listener who writes for horse racing nation. Welcome back Jonathan. So before we get into a few specific horses. WHO's impressed you the most so far on the triple triple crown trail? I think Dennis moment to start the list. Dentists moment strikes to lead right at the top of the stretch at Delta. Two lanes lead our three lately for the final final furlong. Dennis this moment with five length lead scabbard with clear sailing up the second but Dennis moment kicks off the road at the Kentucky Derby in a big way. He barely moved a muscle. That we we have it. RESTRAINING NATION DOT COM user generated Kentucky Derby contender rankings and despite his trouble that experience career dentist moment has not left that number. One spot. You talking about a grade three winner. Who was going to be the favourite the Breeders Cup Juvenile L. Stumbles out of the gate? You know he could be undefeated if you look back at his debut he lost his jockey was really no fault zone so he has the two losses and between between them. He's sandwich to really really nice. Looking victories including his debut at Ellis Park they won by like nineteen and a quarter lengths. I think it was so there's a lot of potential there and he's one that I feel like every once in a while you hear about a derby prospect before they make their debut and then we kind of latch onto them I wanna say it was probably roadster roadster last year because Baffert said he could be his next justify American Farrow and obviously it didn't work out there but they'll Romans has talked up Dennis's moment since before he he ran a race. And so we're we're kind of going to the same thing here As far as a couple of other runners eight rings also out of the Breeder's cup juvenile. He's a really interesting. One didn't really run his race. You know the last time we saw him but I think the way he's going to be handled this season. You have to keep paying attention trained by Bob Baffert. He's he's GonNa run him in the rebel at Oaklawn. And then the Arkansas Derby potentially there as well and then another one that you know kind of on the fence about that you know. He's got a lot of towns. Is Max `field scratched from the Breeders Cup Juvenile. He had a little bit of an issue. There it turns out we found out a couple of weeks after that that he had had a minor surgery for a bone chip. But he's not even in serious training now. Well he's he's he's apparently galloping No works yet and so I think they'll have to do the to A. Ah kind of schedule where you hope to get race out of them and then you have a more serious race which I would expect to be something like the blue grass stakes if everything works out well and he's undeniable town. I'm and I think he's GonNa win a major race somewhere down the road. I don't know if it's going to be the Kentucky Derby and then the other one I feel like it's gotten all the conversation is independence hall at at Independence Hall now makes his move. Independence Hall is the leader getting away to lead by two prints of Pharaohs has moved up on the outside. It's Bourbon Bay Independence All L. linked and a half as they come for the quarto prints of Pharaohs on the outside Bourbon Bay. It is independence hall with the lead and now a furlong to the finish Jose Ortiz showing them the whip now goes to work on independence hall. WHO has a three likely? Just a sixteen to the finish at. It's the constitution called Independence Hall. Tailwind Jerome by four Knights won the national stakes by open links came back and won the jerome. It was a little more workmanlike. But he's going to go. Oh into the new year here as another one of the favorites and if I could talk about one more that has sort of attracted my attention a little bit. It's this ancient warrior horse. I don't know what his path is going to look like. He's Jerry Hall android or for trainee. And if you follow racing at all the last year or so. You'll know that. He's SORTA become embattled. Dan from the strike. Group's tracks out in California But I of all these horses that have won maiden races and we'll be going to the stakes. I want to watch that one closely. He's moved him over to Oakland Park. We should see him in an allowance. Race coming up at the beginning of February and then from then on he should be on the Derby trail else. That's one that that I definitely want to see more of well. You mentioned Bob Baffert. And it's tough to talk about the Kentucky Derby Trail Without Bob Baffert and he has a lot more than the one you mentioned. There's thousand words who ran a big race in the low sal futurity. I'm a Roger Federer Fan but you have to give it up for an doll who is also ambassador trainee. Who looked really really good? So I mean you know Bob Baffert certainly knows how to get horses to the Derby mean how many of these prospects aspects of pan out. I see a path for all of them. To be honest. You know and we also have mentioned authentic. It's still authentic coming to the three the eight ball. He's been in control throughout leads by a length and a half to uncaptured hero. It's all authentic as they pass the quarter pole and turned for home authentic and complete Khaliq Command turning it on. He's in front by sex with a furlong left to go. Zimba Warrior and Assault Coast as authentic is putting on a show. Here is a little green gene shifting about but long gone authentic strolls home in the sham. He'll win by about eight lakes green. It's Grafton stretch and just kept going there and another extremely impressive Horse Nidal I. I wonder about him a little bit. You know we've only seen him one time on Sunday and that six and a half for a long race he he looks like Dortmund Ortmann if you go back to two thousand fifteen big horse. That wasn't extremely fast out of the gate but once he got into stride he went straight to the pace and never really let up there. Yeah it's not not really the kind of horse you want to win the Derby but I think you could get to the Derby and then thousand words certainly has every reason to move forward his last race. I think they had probably a little bit the too much blinker on him and he ended up going head to head with that no door that ran in the Breeders Cup juvenile second. I think it's SORTA legitimize both of those horses that they ran so closely in the future. But I think thousand words is probably at least a couple of lengths better then a no door. He just probably didn't see him in the stretch until Flavian Kinda guided him out and it's like Oh with the blinker. The horse realized he had something to run against a win on. So I guess when you talk about horses that I'm looking at in the new year. Thousand Words is definitely on that shortlist list to Jonathan Listener of racing. Nation is with us here on the gate. We've talked a little bit about the Breeders Cup juvenile which was a topsy turvy race. You had three big horses that we've mentioned into all had their problems that day. We haven't talked about the horse. Who Wanted Storm the court for trainer Peter Martin and that would be a very popular win in the racing business? As you know what chance do you give storm the court to back up what he did in the juvenile. Oh probably not much not a lot of black type in the family. I'm not sure if there's any black type from Stanley I'd agree wise. And then you know he was obviously the beneficiary of other horses stumbles in that race You Know He. He goes gate to wire was not really pressed a whole lot and at the same time. I think they took the blinker. They put their blinkers on. I'm sorry and I have not a fan of lemon. That put blinkers was on a horse at that point in their career. I feel like you should be taken them off so that they can relax. Prepare to go a little bit longer. I think that race and the circumstances just all all came together for storm the court and allowed him to upset that race. It's forty five to one. Whatever he ended up that day I'm sort of in agreement? I think with everybody else that the the the better Derby Derby prospect was no door and second in that race going forward. I want to mention because these races have just happened. Enforceable label for Mark Cassie. Who is not missed? A beat after a son norm went out on his own. He had been his father's chief assistant and enforceable. Really good winning the Lecomte. But we haven't seen too many Lecompte winners. Go on to run well in the Kentucky Derby. Where do you put me as a tap it colt out of a dixie union in marriage? The breeding is good. I put him a really high on my list. As far as forces will be in the Derby but I would not put him on my list of forces that I think can win the Derby and I say that because of his running style you know if we go back to almost every year that the point system has been effect and obviously gets rid of those pure your sprinters. It's the horses that can put themselves near the front at the beginning of the race and keep that pace up and never be caught by closers that tend to win the Derby enforceable enforceable is one of those closers. It's inevitable that he's GONNA run into traffic problem you know. I almost hope he sneaks into the Derby and everybody overlooks. Because I feel like he's the kind of horse could come into the super factor. That's probably going to be a really common line of thought. Though I mean I'm thinking a few months out but the soup perfect You know in the era of a favorites winning the Derby is as remain because it's pretty high minimum of really profitable wager for people nonetheless so yeah for me. He's a super effective player. I I I think he's GonNa be okay as the distance is longer obviously is a full brother Mohammed and a half years day. There's a lot there in the pedigree just really impressive on paper and it was good to see him run as well as he did you know He. He broke his maiden at nine furlongs last summer at Saratoga and it looks like okay. Here's a real two year old and I you know he ran into you. Go into a little bit shorter and the breeder security at keeneland and Max field because two things came together and got him beat but he's definitely better horse than he showed that day and it was good to see him back it up the trump
Mark Casse Interview - January 18, 2020
"When you talk about the three year olds this weekend all eyes on the grade three Lecomte stakes at the fairgrounds and mark? CASSIE is going to be a very very busy man. He has horses entered there there. He has horses entered at Gulfstream Park. And as you might expect he's prominent in so many major stakes races mark with me now here on the horse racing radio network mark appreciate the visit in the time my friend thank you. Thanks for having me now. It just got to win a few. Yeah now you just got to get things rolling. I mean you're pretty. Hey good at that though sometimes so far this year but it's really it's early what's okay so for a trainer when you go through a little stretch like this. You said it's slow. You know things will pick up eventually. But what do you. How do you keep the faith? How do you keep the same approach? Approach everything well. You just know that it's worked and so You know you just you just keep doing the same thing you've always it's done So much of it is is just sometimes you go through cycles and things work right sometimes. I can look at it condition. Asian book a lot of times. And tell you whether we're going to how we're going to do. Sometimes you know you have races that fit your horses better than others and But by the you know you just continue David Care on. I've talked about this many times and that is you just keep doing doing What you've been doing we We won five breeders cups and two classics. And so I think we we I think we we. We know what we're doing so we just keep doing the same thing. Yeah more than twenty eight hundred victories in North America for trainer Mark. CASSIE so. Yeah I think you know what you're doing it hard mark not to start like tweaking. Funny Mike though I will tell you. This is many racist as we went all those. When you start? Start when you do go through a little spell where you're not winning as much as you'd like you know you're like he's still like oh I want to win. It never changes. It doesn't matter whether for me whether it's a five thousand dollar claiming race or five hundred thousand dollars claiming race and I I don't like losing nobody does You know so There you go. Well hopefully things start picking up with the Lecomte Lecomte stakes later today and all the stakes races at Gulfstream tubes. You're well represented there but let's let's focus on the three year olds in the lacob and this is a race that you want for the first time. Last last year with war of will we know it worked out okay for him he went out and won the preakness later in the season. And some people will say maybe he should have won the Kentucky Derby. But that's neither here nor there here at this point So tell me about the two horses you have this year. You have Lynn's map and then you have enforceable and I would say Lens Map. Probably the more highly regarded at least in terms of the the morning line. Well well we just scratched him. Oh okay well there you go. And and that was kind of the plan when he drew the fourteen hall. It's nearly nearly impossible to win anywhere from the fourteen whole But New Orleans is pretty tough to win from the fourteen hole So when that happened when he drew outside their yesterday we Entered him in the Smarty Jones. And he's going to run next Friday at Oakland in the Smarty Jones. That works out okay. It doesn't cost you a whole lot of time right. No no not at all and The the Smarty Jones I think he's number eight of nine much much more favorable Post and Yeah he's a very nice horse he's he's done done well so far We're excited to have him and you know now he. He's he's taken one step. He took another step and now the big except the big step that says. Can you run with the better. Three year olds in North America and We're going to have to wait a week to find out. Is there something mark that you look for for in your newly turn. Three year olds at this point in the season that you say okay they they have that it factor they have what it takes to be a factor moving down the road to the Kentucky Derby. Oh yeah I I mean I think you can look at horses and say you know can again this one go forward a lot of times. It's pedigree a lot of times. It's the and brains So it takes a lot it takes a lot and and more than anything it takes a while back but Definitely by this. It's time you know we're looking at is that we think could You know go on I would say that A year ago today I still had big question backs questions about Sir Winston I wasn't sure how good he was as yet and But WAR WILL I. I was very confident at this time. Last year. I think I can remember doing an interview review Down for Thinks it's name right now but down in New Orleans and he he said What do you think of your chances today? And I said I'd be surprised if he gets beat. And I don't say that very often but I had just the utmost confidence of war in war will well We're not we're not in the same. You know we are not on the same same page right now as we were a year ago so we have enforceable end. Today who enforceable is one of the horses he's gotTa humongous pedigree pool brother Demo Heynen also half brother another really good horse. Can't can't escape me right now. But he's a horse. We liked a lot but he is just been extremely slow to come around His last race was much better than it looks on paper and in David's extremely happy with the way he's trained up to this race so You know we're expecting big things out out of in today I if we don't see him today then he's just not I don't think he's good enough so We're we're looking for big things out of him today. Are there a couple of other three year olds in the Cassie Barn. That people should keep an eye on as we moved down this route short on my three year old colts right now. Um and one that I would tell you that we work game this morning. I'm in Miami today and we work in this morning we bought or recently broke his maiden name's untitled Broke his maiden at cough stream ran a ninety eight buyer One by ten. I'm excited about at him pretty soon this morning out of the gate and I just like so many things about him. He's a big tall lanky cold with a great mind and and Just lucky you know that we were able to get him in and now we need. We need to have some luck with him. He's going to Swail We have two you other cults that are in running allowance races today Strike Appeal and race driver. They're running that fairgrounds right now I would call them the B. Team Hopefully plea. After today we could call on them they will say earlier. You mentioned the name of the Belmont winner from last year Sir Winston. I saw that he had a breeze was yesterday at Acworth. Desert Right which day before the day before a guy for yeah? What's what's going on with him extremely well? We were very happy with the The only issue he pulled the shoe off during the work and then he stepped on it and He's been a little tender on and we're currently Soaking his foot and and insane I would say fifty fifty. I sent him up to run him in Chazal I think it's called and Next weekend right now I'd say we're fifty fifty two run. We're GONNA see. See Our foot response to that and If not we'll wait for the next one. My long term explains for him is is trying to get him to do by which I'm happy. He grew up a lot during his time off. He's a big handsome horse now. And and Training well so expect big things out of in We'll see what happens here with his foot. Just been on the phone with the Cheney Baig Egg who is my main assistant there knows no Sir Winston probably better in any way and he helped preparing for the Belmont and So we're we're seeing. He's he's soaking his foot as we speak what's going on with the preakness winner. IS HE GONNA race in two thousand twenty. Yes eastern well. He watched him train Yesterday morning before I drove down to Miami scrape. He's grown up. Some right now are feeling Is that. He's a great one winner on the dirt. We're going to try to make him a grade. One winner this year on the grass so that that's where we'll be focusing Probably the maybe around March or April April.

Meanwhile, Tacitus, why the whole way, and I think the trip was the big difference in Sir Winston edging out the favourite Tacitus Mike irt moments ago, NBC's Kenny rice cut up with winning trainer Marquette with winning trainer. Mark Cassie who has taken two thirds of this triple crown with two different horses war will in the Preakness and Sir Winston today. Mark your thoughts on the performance of what many people thought was your other horse coming in here. You know, I said all all week long, you know he was doing really well he had a race track. I say it's just exciting. What were you thinking as attorney for home more wills much in the hunt? You see, Sir Winston making his move, I could see where or will struggle a little bit. He looked like he was maybe a little flat today, and I saw Joe health, cut the corner a little bit. I could see where war will getting a little wary. So I went to. Right. And sir. Winston. Tough to do because you have to horses, you know, and, and I love Orwell well as well. But what can I say the farmers? They've been so great to us and to give us opportunity. It's sit drink them. Welcome. -gratulations you take two of the three. Thank you. I love his comments about certain cheer for, Sir Winston, when he saw that war will maybe just didn't have it today. That's that's true. You know, it's, it's a good problem to have so to speak as a trainer when you've got.
War of Will tops riderless horse, rest of field to win Preakness Stakes
"War of wills s for a little more around still four to make up at city ground a quarter together Pimlico, warriors charge leads the way. Well, they're at war per long war of willa Tyler athletes, slipping through the inside shifting out just a Tenet or left-hander here comes ever fast on the inside. And oh and Dale allayed bitterly outside war of will. Wow. War of will who said there, wouldn't be any story lines in the Preakness. That's all I heard all week and all the radio interviews, I was fortunate enough to do. There's nothing going on in the Preakness. Well, well, I think we can change all of that after war of wills victory one who was there to witness. It is Keith sergeant dementia advanced media, who we welcome for the first time here to win the gate. So talk to me about the vibe from the Mark Cassie barn after war of wills win was he feeling revengeful or was he feeling very matter of fact. Well, he downplayed revenge actor. I mean dismissed the question a little bit. But then you would hear him and he you know, you'd be how you could tell I think the one thing that really bothered, the most was the way the Gary west and a maximum security connections. And you can understand where they're coming from. But they the way they almost turned it around and tried to blame hinge jockey, and his horse for the way they wrote the Kentucky Derby, I think he. He kinda got a little ticked off about it. I mean he admitted he got ticked off about it. I think that bothered him a little bit. So, you know when when it came down to it, he just wanted a chance to, to as he put it. He just wanted a chance for fair shot. And I think he got it, you got a pretty clean trip. It does not often these days that when you don't have a horse going for the triple crown that a trainer and an owner commit to running in all three races, three races, and five weeks is not how horses are trained anymore. Yet, it seems that were of will is going to show up in the Belmont Stakes. What did marquess he say about that? Yeah. He said, if all things are ago he indicated after after eight ago, his his intention is to do it, and it kinda makes sense. I agree with you. That typically you don't see it, but I think a lot of these owners and trainers are kind of aiming for the three year old award, the horse of the year award. And that's probably a part of the motivations for Gary west and teach services. Well, when it comes to maximum security now that, you know, the Kentucky Derby, was what it was. And now. You the Preakness I think they're going to aim for, you know, maybe trying to prove themselves in the Belmont. Now, I don't wanna get too far ahead of the Belmont, but six weeks after the Belmont comes this little race on the jersey shore, you know, really, well, Mr. sergeant might that race the Haskell have a bit more juice, in it, this year, if that's the first rematch of maximum security, in more of will. I think so I it's a great point. And now mind, you Haskell was pushed up a week from their last Saturday, July, who the Saturday beforehand, certainly enough time. If more will does do the three races in five weeks. You know, you don't know how he's gonna come out of it, but it does set up is one of the, you know, grade one race is one of the final ones that a summer, certainly, a lot of history there and maximum security. He's being stalled there now. So he working out there every day, I certainly expected if you tell the he's going to be running in it, then, you know, you're going to see a couple of maybe of the Baffert over since he loves running there, maybe not improbable, but you know he had a couple live contenders as well. So yeah, it setting up to be a full field and really good field. Keeps sergeant avenge advanced media. Joining us here on the gate. He was at the Preakness and felt that vibe now we were talking about the three year old picture going forward. The Belmont is coming up. I said, I didn't want to get too far ahead of that, and it seems like we're going. Get a good field there, including Tacitus who wound up third in the Kentucky Derby, and some others from the derby. How do you see the Belmont shaping up right now? He'll have to hold out a little bit of hope that maybe he can balanced back. We haven't heard much from their camp in a while. Certainly, if he was the run, I would be intriguing but I again I think national security right after the derby they gave him about a week off. He's been training for for last week since Thursday. He plans on running again, I be surprised if they don't try to point them, pointing their Marquette again into ready indicated that you're got try to run worm will Baffert a couple of pitchers didn't run in the Preakness. You would think that one or two of those guys will, and then obviously always has a couple horses that he's high on tries to the toward the Belmont as twelve. So the Preakness when the bigger field that I kinda thought it was going to be I don't know if the Belmont, gonna have thirteen where but yeah, I could see ten really really talented worse than a really good field. Wait, did you say maximum security may point towards the Belmont? He had started training again. He had taken it like a little bit of a retrieved surgery against Asian service had indicate. Did that he'd like to read them a little bit more? And now we're talking three weeks. So all things being equal. I do know that big part of their motivation is horse of the year. How do you do that? You know, it'd be awfully hard for, for him to win horses a year without running in another triple crown race in and proving himself and proving the derby with the fluke, and now at twenty million dollar bed, which I'm sure you've probably talked about a little bit where he'd like to try to get a couple of these tours is an improvement salve against word will, and long range Coty and a couple of those horses as well.

"Now, I put him number one on my list. I was gonna put game winner and keep them there. But then I say, well, you know, what all Maho beach did win the race. So I'm I don't really see any reason to put him at number two at this point. I'll go ahead and put him in number one. And I have them number one basically by knows over game winner as far as my top ten so 'cause game winner that was a very impressive race on his part to when you consider hit and run since the Breeders Cup and honestly at the full life on Omaha beach had the the rebel pretty much in hand. Quite honestly, I, but I the way that game winner. So has so much determination. I I thought he might make that belatedly run and he did. And so that was just a very exciting race. I thought and those two are like say that that division of the rebel. They now have the top one to on my Kentucky, Derby top ten so and then you mentioned. Louisiana derby, you just had on one of my favorite guests that you have kind of have a whole of famous steep BIC. And Dale Romans is one of them and Mark Cassie is certainly one of them too. And he is such a class individual, and it, but I was listening very carefully to what he was talking about with war of will. Of course. I mean, you wanna Steve I've seen thousands and thousands and thousands of racism my lifetime that has to be one of the fluky weirdest. Unusual things. Mark used the word unique. I mean. To have what happened to him? And like Mark says 'cause I was watching more will break because with the big field. You know, fairly big field there in that Louisiana derby, the brakes important, and I mean, he couldn't he broke like a shot. Like like, Mark said, I mean, he broke. But I thought he might go right to lead. And the next thing, you know, you see I didn't really see the first time live, and I was thinking, well, maybe they're trying to raise him, you know, to get him. Accustomed to see what he can do well off the pace or what's going on here. But I mean, they went into the first turn. And I was watching the race with my wife, and I told her I said boy, I think he's in big trouble. I just don't like the way he's going. And of course, you know, then he he gets well beaten. And then we find out what happened, you know, insured order after that race. And I say whether freaky fluky thing. But the here Mark talk. So up domestically about him. Smarting? Mark comes up with great observations such as he was saying such a big deal was being made of the six weeks between the Leija derby, the Kentucky Derby, because it's kind of an awkward timeframe as we we know..

"And as I said James we have Tom in Saint Louis with us. Tom welcome to the program. Yeah. James, how are you gentlemen, this evening? Good tower. You. I'm doing fine and still on the sparkling water kicker. We know back in the soda pop today. I actually we have an unsweetened tea that my wife was kind enough to to bring home for me. So really mixing it up. But definitely still on the sparkling water kick. Cool cool question for you. I noticed in watching some of these three year old races that it seems. And I went back, and I remember international star and war will got me started on this thing and the other day with the, you know, back to back wins in Louisiana. It seems that horses in Louisiana in the three zero pressed over the last five years have worn two if not three all three of them. I international started in the preps to where horses some of the other race tracks, you know, have one when here one the win the next one when the next is that just something that cyclical, or is that is there another reason for it like, you know, maybe horses, you know, maybe horses ships Louisiana like they do other places. I know the Baffert ships a lot of orces Duff go on for the rebel. And for the Arkansas jury, but you know, never ships for the southwest or even the smarty Jones is that just a a trend you guys noticed or is it just a Coen? That I'm reading into a trend, and I'll just hang up much, you guys dock someone that knows born me. So yeah, appreciate the call. I would say for handed over to Jane's. I think it's a developing trend in part of it is just with all the options different regions of your Baffert or Pletcher Ashby sending need to spread the law a little bit of but really with all the options. Once you kinda find a path that works for you. I think these trainers rolling to stick with it. So Mark Cassie even though he has horses at Oaklawn Gulfstream, and he's willing to ship not Tempa, and he'll have horses at Keeneland in Woodbine, come spring now were will sorta in the screws, and you know, why mess with it and even Baffert sources we've seen he'll commit to the the Oakland path for some of them, or you know, maybe needs to juggle. But but I do think it's a developing trend where these guys are kind of frayed to to shake away from something that appears to be working. As is the case with war. Well, what do you think James? Well, and I think it's I think it's specific to the fairgrounds. I think you'll see that happen. A lot at at goals place like Gulfstream or Santa Anita whereby. Akwa duct in Oaklawn are a little bit different. Oaklawn seems it's really just tractive horses from all over the Arkansas derby, Alaska, vailable will prep and horses are wintering. Elsewhere typically, it's four two before they come up into New York in the spring. So the memorial will get a different kind of Cass. But I mean just looking at Darby winners..

He doesn't have to be great. Now. Do you wanna see good effort? And as you guys know, you know, our philosophy in this game is to build an equity in horse over period of time that there'd be as the great in a co for everybody and racing. It's not mandatory to build equity in horse. But it's great to get there. And of course, we wouldn't put a horse in a position that you know, that would be it over his head. And I think what we wanna see today is handling the two currents finishing strong. And, you know, learning from it, we'll speak you you you bring up learning done. I think that's a great word to use. I asked Mark Cassie in the first half of the program what he has learned from from going down the Kentucky Derby trail so many times in his career. What things is he learned as a trainer as an owner? What things have you learned about putting a horse on the? Trail and getting him to the Kentucky Derby. I think you just gotta be so grateful for having the opportunity because it is so difficult, and and you know, to have been there before, you know, wicked strong was I think second choice going into the derby in two thousand fourteen ways a lot of people. And you know, there are some sleepless nights. But you know, you're you're very grateful and fortunate to be in this position.
