The Inspiring Story of Margaret E. Knight

"So margaret louise night. She was a prolific american inventor of machines and mechanisms for a variety of industrial everyday purposes. Margaret was nicknamed maddie mit. She lived with her widowed mother and older brothers. Charlie and jim in a little house in york maine. she was born in eighteen. Thirty eight by the way so after her father passed away mattie had inherited his toolbox and she liked to think of things that could be made with these tools and she drew them in a little notebook that she labeled my inventions. Mattie demonstrated knack for tools and mentioned from an early age making toys kites sleds and household items in as little girl. She preferred to play with woodworking tools. Instead of dolls saying that quote the only thing she wanted whereas a jack knife gimblett and pieces of wood. She knew she wanted good for her so when she was eleven. Maddie's finley moved to manchester new hampshire to work in the textile mills there and so matty was going to continue going to school only going so far as a complete her elementary school education and she got to know the head engineer there while wandering around the grounds after school waiting for her family to be done with their like fourteen to eighteen hour shifts. Sure textile mills. Yeah including like her twelve year old brother and fourteen so at age twelve. She started working the mill herself and aloom ow function and injured a worker So it turns out that one of the leading causes of serious injuries at the mill that she had observed was the propensity of the steel-tipped flying shuttles so those were manipulated by workers to unite the left in the warp threads in their weaves. I'm so these shuttles would come free of their looms and they would like shoot off the machines high-velocity even at like the slightest employee error. So like there were people dying from this. There are people like you know basically like you're getting almost shot. Yeah basically tipped metal thing like flying off a machine you know so it was really dangerous and so matty what she did. She created a guard. That would stop the shuttle from coming off of the machine if it malfunctioned. So like the exact details of this device have kind of been lost to history but mentions of it came out throughout published stories of her work and her Mentions articles that will get into so again because this was the mid nineteenth century. And why would anybody document what they actually did anyway. So workman who installed these types of guards all the looms and all the males in manchester. So this sounds like a big deal. She clearly didn't make any money for sure. You know maybe save some lives so after she turned eighteen. Mattie left manchester for better opportunities She worked in several different factories on new england along with other short-term technical jobs too so that she could keep

The 'Superfluid' States Of Matter

"Science concepts. We're going to unpack. Today is states of matter. You know some of those other states of matter. You didn't learn about in science class right. So the physicist. I called up to explain. This is martin's veer line at mit. And what. i find hilarious pout. Martin is he said when it comes to his own kid. He actually prefers to keep this particular science lesson. Pretty simple to my son. I'm like oh yeah you the gas liquid solid bam. Leave it at that you know. He's seven and states of matter is really just a way to describe how a group of particles think atoms or molecules etc move which is sort of beautiful and collective and different from what you would guess by looking just at a single particle and changes in temperature and pressure can cause those particles to move differently and change their behavior right. We see the super easily with water. That's right in the liquid phase water molecules slip and slide past each other but we humans quickly learned that if you lower the temperature the particles slowdown bam. We see is appear and we build bridges. And we're very excited about that. Actually that was a huge deal hundred years ago to make ice and if we go in the opposite direction heat water up. The particles move faster and farther apart and eventually the h. Two molecules breakaway and dissipate into the air as water vapor aka humidity. That's right it is already a miracle in itself like that. Water exists in these three different states. And that we can see those states at temperatures that we can reach as humans in the kitchen. But here's the thing. We can only do so much in our kitchen speakers there. But there's a limited range of temperature and pressure that even you can achieve in your kitchen mattie and there are states of matter beyond

So what you're saying is you couldn't just stick to one species because you've got excited and distracted by all the facts about all the species is that right. Maybe i did. Maybe i didn't. You'll be happy for it. I'll say that so. Who did you talk to about. This constellation of creatures. I called up. Stephanie vice a phd student in rio de janeiro. She's an entomologist who studies firefly's and just like us her love of firefly's started in childhood. I have a great memory of my childhood summer trips with my family and also i love to say they shining the forest when i do my field words. She says that there's one thing that applies to all firefly's and that's that firefly's have different lay stages and the larval stage in my opinion is by far the coolest firefly's spend most of their lives in the a lot of ro stage in when she says most she means like almost all of their lives are spent as larvae. I mean some spend one to two years just being voracious low babies. So the adult. Firefly's that i see flying around on the east coast china flash and find a mate. That's like a short period of their lives. Yeah yeah i mean. Some only live as adults for like a few weeks total. They're just out here. Trying to find a mate fertilize some eggs and die.

Breaking Down the New CDC Mask Guidance

"Right alison just two little months ago. You and i were on the show talking about how the cdc said vaccinated people should feel free to lose their masks in almost all settings including indoors. Yeah i mean this guy was basically based on the honor system in most places you just kind of had to take someone's word for it whether they were vaccinated and every member matter. You and i shared some concerns about vaccine equity rates. Vaccinations still being low. And how this might affect people who are most vulnerable now here. We are today amid a surge of cases here to talk about how the cdc is now modifying some of that guidance. Can you tell us more about how the cdc made this decision. Sure it really comes down to two main factors. I mean the delta variant and slowing vaccinations about thirty percent of adults remain unvaccinated in the us. Meaning there's this huge group of people who are still vulnerable to the virus kids under twelve can't be vaccinated people with compromised. Immune systems don't always get full protection from the vaccine. So they're vulnerable to and there's something more here mattie new data suggests that vaccinated people who get infected with the delta variant could transmit it to others here. Cdc director rochelle wolinsky back fascinated. People infected with the delta variants after vaccination may be page and spread the virus to others. This new science is worrisome. And unfortunately warrants an update to our recommendation and she really points out that this is different from previous variants unlike the alpha variant that we had back in may where we didn't believe that if you were vaccinated you could transmit further. I'm this is different now with the delta variant and alison. We should be clear here right. The vaccines are still doing their job. Against the delta variant these vaccines are designed to prevent vaccinated people from getting really sick or dying and they are still doing a stellar job of

"Alison. Over the weekend rhode island became the eighth state to reach a goal set by president biden to get seventy percent of adults vaccinated with at least one shot by july. Fourth is the rest of the country on track lost so far. Many of the smaller northeastern states have reached this goal. I including maine massachusetts vermont and new jersey nationwide about sixty one percent of adults have received their first dose and very close to half are now fully vaccinated so this is all good news but in states. Vaccinations remain much lower including alabama mississippi. Arkansas utah it's kind of unclear. I mean nationwide. The number of daily. Vaccinations has declined over the last month. Part of this. Is it a lot of people already been vaccinated. Now we're at about one point. Seven million shots a day so we have a ways to go as a country. General vivek murthy has pointed to survey data showing that more people would be motivated to roll up their sleeves if their employers gave time off to get the shot and recover from it so employers not only have an opportunity to increase fascination rates. It turns out that they can also help the close. The equity gallon. Vaccinations and you know.

Too Soon? The CDC Relaxes Mask Guidance for Fully Vaccinated

"Okay ellison aubrey. Since the new mass guidance from the cdc came out different groups. Industries have responded. Let's start with businesses. Sure i mean. Many of the big retailers are dropping their masking requirements including walmart. Costco starbucks walmart says. It supports employees. Who may choose to continue to wear masks. Even if they're fully vaccinated and all of these chains are encouraging people who are not vaccinated to continue to mask now over the weekend cd. Rochelle walinsky was pressed about the new policy and she cautioned. That masks will be with us for a while. Likely said a lot of people are not vaccinated and they should be masking in many settings. He or she is on nbc. This was not permission to shed masks for everybody everywhere. This was really science driven individual assessment of your risk. And now we all need to work together and cdc is hard at work now saying what does this mean for schools for travel for camps for businesses. I think what she's getting at here. Mattie is there is more guidance to come now. They've shifted this strategy unmasking. A lot of the other guidance for what to do in the office what to do in schools will need to get looked at again reviewed now given how hard it is to police the new policy. I mean it's hard to know who is or isn't vaccinated. This really just comes down to the honor system and dr walinsky ask people to be honest with themselves because people who are not vaccinated are putting themselves at risk. Yeah i i mean alison. This was the part kind of blew me away. I mean this puts the burden on individuals to do the right thing by themselves and also by others. And i i don't know i don't think we have evidence that an honor system will work in the us especially with the stakes being this high. Well there definitely are critics. Marc perron is president of the united food and commercial workers international union which represents about one point three million frontline retail and grocery store workers. He says the guy insists confusing. And that the cdc has failed to consider how it will impact essential workers who face frequent exposure to people who are not vaccinated. And some refuse to wear masks. I think that the guidance should busy. People should wear masks at least until we get to that herd immunity number. We're not there yet. We only have about forty percent of the population fully vaccinated and i. I think that we could have waited another couple of months. And there's also similar concern from nurses mattie leaders of the national nurses united which is the largest union of registered nurses in the.

The Origins of the Phrase 'Badgering' Will Surprise You

"Mattie we are back with an episode of a fan favorite animal slander this series where we look at common phrases about animals and find out if there's any truth to them that's right so today we are looking into the term badgering and this one isn't as straightforward of the others. I was trying to figure out. You know our badgers particularly tenacious. Are they insistent. Like do they know each other more than other critters. And what i found is that there's absolutely no badger driven reason for this phrase The experts that i talked to said generally speaking. Badgers are pretty conflict. Avoidance actually in the origins of the word. Badgering are pretty dark and not at all. No no all right. It sounds like we're to blame for what is it. So what. I have been able to find at least is that the phrase probably comes from this horrific practice of badger baiting which has a history in a few places including the uk where people sick dogs on badgers for sport like the dogs are trained to find and pull the badgers out of their homes or confined space and attack them and over again. So the word badgering is probably actually based off. Doug behavior not anything. The badgers have done. That is objectively horrible. Yeah yeah the badgers are pretty much always killed. The dogs can get injured and killed two. It's awful and it's been legal for a long time in places like the uk but even with increased protections for badgers throughout the years. It's still a problem. I guess case closed yes. Slander mattie this has been very dark and very bleak. Did you put us through this.

Here's what the CDC says fully vaccinated people can do

"Safai here with npr health correspondent. Alison aubrey hale. Said they agreed to be here mattie. So you're here because there was a press briefing by the white house. Covid nineteen response team on monday with some long awaited guidance. A morning. and thank you. I'm glad to be back with you today. Let's get started that. Cdc director rochelle walinsky and she said after weeks of steady decline new coronavirus cases. There's been a leveling of that decline the country's averaging about sixty thousand new cases a day. Yeah i mean it's not great caseload wise. We are pretty much where we were right. Before the winter surge and the most recent seven day average deaths is slightly lower than two thousand deaths per day. So that's pretty troubling but we'll landscape also said she was hopeful and she pointed to the approximately thirty one million people. That's about twelve percent of us adults who are fully vaccinated and is more americans vaccinated a growing body of evidence. Now tells us that there are some activities that fully vaccinated people can resume at low risk to themselves and mattie she went on to detail new cdc guidelines about what activities are considered safe for fully vaccinated people. Because everyone wants to get back to something. That looks kind of like normal or normal ish. I mean this is the news. People have been waiting for right. Vaccinated people can have a little more freedom to socialize but before we get ahead of ourselves. Alison let's make sure everyone knows what we mean. When we say believe excavated shirt so a person is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after getting the second dose of either the pfizer or a modern of vaccines because those required two shots or two weeks. After the single dose of the johnson and johnson vaccine because for that one. You only need that. Single dose to be fully vaccinated. That's right now. These new guidelines are not the final word. There's sort of a baby step towards a return to normal doctor will linski made clear during the briefing. The science of covid nineteen is complex and our understanding of the virus continues to rapidly evolve. The recommendations is today are just a first step so as more people get vaccinated the understanding will grow about what activities are safe to do and this guidance will be updated so today on the show we talk about the cdc's first set of public health recommendations for fully vaccinated people and why it's still important for all of us to remain vigilant. This shortwave the daily science podcast from npr ellison. I am very glad to have you here today. And we are going to go into the caveats and the guidance and we're going the sectors you know. I have to say this does feel like kind of a moment to celebrate that we are getting you know a little bit of freedom back The cdc guidance is relaxing about what vaccinated people can do So i just wanna start off being like this is pretty awesome You know what i mean. Yeah i agree. There's a sense of optimism. we all feel it. We look at these vaccination numbers taking up and thank you know. The new normal is right around the corner. But i just have to say hang on folks like there are still sixty thousand cases. The date musto dolts haven't been vaccinated yet. So there's a lot of vulnerable people out there and the pandemic is not yet in the rear view mirror. Absolutely absolutely so. Let's get into it. What does the new guidance say that fully vaccinated people can do the agency says that fully vaccinated people can gather indoors with other fully vaccinated people without wearing masks and without social distancing they can also gather unmasked with people from another household who are not vaccinated if everybody. There is at low risk of serious illness. So it's really a green light for scenarios of like grandparents who want to gather with their children or their grandchildren right. I mean this guidance gives the example fully vaccinated grandparents can visit indoors with their unvaccinated healthy family members. And that's without wearing masks. Or physical distancing provided of course that none of the unvaccinated family members are at high risk of severe covid nineteen. So let's break that down for a second alison sure who is considered high risk for severe covid. And who's considered low risk people. At high risk include older adults remember the vast majority of data people seventy five and older another high risk group pregnant individuals and people certain medical conditions those at lower risk include kids and healthy adults people who've had minimal exposure to other people bottomline risk goes up with age and the guidance from this week also says that the should be confined to one household. Right yeah right. They're very specific about this. And they give some scenarios The dividing line in your mind sort of be private spaces where you control. Who's around your home and public spaces. So at home if you are fully vaccinated and your friend or member fully vaccinated green light here to gather do at unmasked with knows distancing required alleluia. another scenario. my parents are vaccinated. Now they can come to my house even though we are not fully vaccinated and my ten year. Old daughter is too young to be vaccinated. We are considered low so vaccinated people can go visit unvaccinated people as long as everyone. There is considered low risk. Okay so that's all the good stuff. Let's talk about areas to be kind of cautious around sure. This is where there are some caution flags vaccinated people visiting unvaccinated people from people households at the same time. This is where the risks starts to sort of add up or accumulate so in this kind of situation. Everyone should wear a mask and visit outdoors of possible. Or if you are indoors make sure it's a well ventilated space and maintain physical distance when it comes to medium or large gatherings say baseball game a wedding. It's recommended that everyone including fully vaccinated people continue to avoid them. Yeah i mean. Let's talk about why we still need some of these precautions. Sure i mean officials say there's a growing body of evidence to show that people who are fully vaccinated are less likely to become infected and also potentially less likely to spread the virus to others. They use that word potential because the risk appears to be quite low but this is not completely nailed down yet. So as science evolves there will likely be more updated guidance and the guidance even talked about how in rare cases vaccinated people could get sick could have symptoms. Yeah i mean the risk is low but it's not zero mean the clinical trial showed. The vaccines are very very effective. They're not a hundred percent effective. And so the cdc says if fully vaccinated person has symptoms they should isolate and talk to a doctor and possibly get a test but they also say if fully vaccinated person has a known exposure. Say go to work and they later find out that a close contact was infected. They do not need to quarantine or get tested because they're infection risk is low though they should sort of monitor themselves for symptoms right so if a person who's vaccinated feeling sick they should isolate and talk to a doctor but if they get exposed to somebody who said that doesn't necessarily mean they need to you know go into quarantine. They just need to kind of monitor themselves. That's right

Vaccine Distribution: An Equity Challenge

"Okay paying we are talking vaccine equity in the pandemic and just a quick note. We are focusing a just here in the united states for this episode. So let's start with some top line numbers three covid. Nineteen vaccines have been authorized for emergency. Use in the us one very recently. How many people have actually been vaccinated so far well. Since vaccine distribution started in mid december around fifty million people have gotten at least one dose of a covid nineteen vaccine that includes about twenty five million people who got into doses means they've been fully vaccinated with either the pfizer or madonna vaccines. And that's some real progress over the past few months. Still just around eight percent of the total. Us population has been fully vaccinated. So there's still a long way to go. yeah i mean. Do we have any demographics on who the people who got the vaccine are like. Do we have any data on race or ethnicity well. Last week i spent some time at a cdc conference which was online and a bunch of public officials talked about it including dr marcela nunez smith who we heard from earlier. People of color are getting vaccinated rates below their representation in the general population. We know these challenges reflect longstanding deeply rooted systemic rallies. But here's the thing. The data that she's talking about is still pretty limited. You know so far race. Nothing to see. Data have only been collected for about half of the shots given out. Wow only half the thought i mean. There's a little bit frustrating. That's that's not enough data. Yeah it's it's really not and the biden administration pointed this out themselves and they acknowledged that it's pretty abysmal. Doctor rachelle will lansky. She's head of the centers for disease control and prevention and she says the problem is coming from a couple of different directions. Individuals may choose not to report. It may not be required of or requested by providers and some providers as well as jurisdictions have restrictions on data sharing so some of these data gaps are due to the fact that we have inconsistent systems around data gathering. Which you know is something that has been in quite a bit with this pandemic. Yeah that's certainly part of it and there's reasons why people might not want to share their personal information about race ethnicity especially people of color you know. The federal government has a long history of exploiting and under serving minority communities and that extends to this day but now there are government officials saying that. It's up to them to try and convince people that it's important to give their information. Here's neurath shaw. Health official in the state of maine in public health. What gets measured gets managed and if we measure the right things then we will manage the right issues if we measure the wrong things. Then the did that we collect. That may not bear resemblance to current present. Elf challenges is actually what we will end up managing. Yeah so early. On in fact vaccine distribution the only metric that was available was the number of doses sent out in the number of doses administered which basically measured speed and so if the biden harris administration wants to achieve both and equity with axiom distribution. They're going to have to get more comprehensive data on race ethnicity to get a handle on the problem. Yeah i mean. I want to talk about what the biden administration is doing specifically to address this issue of a vaccine but first let's talk about some of the ways. The general rollout has put. Vulnerable communities added disadvantage. Because that's definitely happening. Yeah and to be honest. It's been hard for everyone including health reporters to keep up with the changes that are happening. Daily and weekly with axiom distribution. I mean every single state has its own rules about who qualifies and had a sign up. Obviously that confusion is compounded. If the information isn't coming to you in the language you speak or you don't have access to computers and email and even for people who may have read up on how to book an appointment. It's taken them hours to actually research in book one. So if you don't have time to figure that out and if you don't have access to transportation or time off work to get an appointment and was places you probably haven't been able to get vaccinated yet. Yeah i mean and that's when you know for sure that you want the vaccine. Exactly dr christian rumors. He's a physician and executive that family health centers of san diego. He points out that people also have questions that are very specific to their own circumstances and we want those answered before they feel like they can make an informed decision to actually get vaccinated. Here he is speaking to. My colleague yuki noguchi residency is not just one thing. And in many cases. They're very unique to their own situation. Like i just got treated for cancer. Or i'm on a certain medication or i've had an allergy in the past and those are questions that'll be answered most likely from talking one on one with a medical professional or some other trusted person. Which again if you're part of an underserved community is hard to access. If you don't have the time to seek out those answers it'll be much easier if the vaccines and the resources were coming directly to you right right okay. So ping what has the biden administration specifically announced or done to address vaccine equity so at that. Cdc conference. dr marcellina smith acknowledged that this is a huge issue. And it's not gonna be easily solved. Must attend the underlying social structures arborist as we look ahead to building resilience into our recovery. What we do believe now. Is that the way we get american vaccinating and the emphasis he placed reaching the hardest hit communities attached just as important as being the goals the number of people that's needed so their strategy to get to those goals basically amounts to increasing a couple of different things number one the number of vaccines available number two the number of people giving vaccines and number three. The number of places people can get vaccinated and specific to equity. They've launched a few fema supported mass vaccination sites. These are huge operations set up in stadiums and parking lots that are aiming to give at six thousand shots a day and they're putting some of these in places that score high on something called the social vulnerability right which is a cdc measurement of how vulnerable community is based on social factors like poverty for example. They've also started sending vaccines directly community health centers which serve around thirty million people over. All many whom are rural belong to minority groups or are low income and the centers can also offer outreach in different languages and support for signing up. I mean are they also leaning on non-medical sites to i mean like i know working with community leaders and partners be especially effective. Yeah well they're also talking about sending out that nation trucks to job sites and setting up clinics and local churches and high school gyms and ymca's those non-medical sites that you were talking about and these community clinics might not be serving thousands of people a day but they will make the vaccine available and convenient for people in those communities to get gosh so the vibe administration is really trying to take a both and approach. They're supporting mass vaccination sites to get a lot of people vaccinated quickly and they're also realizing that some people will take more time and more effort to reach so they're also trying to figure out ways to gather better data and target underserved areas. Okay so you know. Most of what we've been talking about today paying as the government is handling this which i would argue is the most important facet but i mean. Is there a sense of individual responsibility here. I know there are a bunch of stories out there about people line jumping or like going into communities outside their own to vaccines how we have all heard the stories and it's hard to say how much it's happening but it does make people feel like the system isn't working you know and what bioethicists have said to me is. That cheating happens for sure but it's probably not happening enough to undermine the system overall i mean. Is that all kind of a short term problem. I mean there's a huge demand right at this point and not enough supply but the hope is that you know in the coming weeks or months the situation will change as vaccine manufacturing and distribution ramp up even further right. Yeah and that's been the hope all along. I mean for weeks now. We've been hearing about a flood of vaccines that will be coming online in the near future. That will make it less. Cut throat to vaccine appointment and we're not there yet but there are some promising signs. The government has now ordered a total of six hundred million doses of pfizer in modern of vaccines to be delivered by the end of july. Which is enough to cover three hundred million people and that's more than all the adults in the us right right. Plus we've got the newly authorized. John jay vaccine which will eventually make a difference right and getting all these shots in urgent right now because we're kind of in a race between vaccinations and variants. Which means that. The more people protect right now. The fewer people will catch the virus and the fewer chances the virus will have to keep mutating in ways that might make it avai the vaccines and the treatments. We've developed so that's why it's still super super important to keep the other measures that prevent the virus from spreading double masking staying physically distant. You know we're all excited about vaccines but health. Experts are saying right now that in the middle of the vaccination campaign is not the time to let up our guard okay pingpong we appreciate you as always thank you for coming on the show things so much. Mattie appreciate you to

Why Tech Companies Are Limiting Police Use of Facial Recognition

"All right emily kwong so. We're talking about this announcement from a string of tech companies that they are going gonna put limits on their facial recognition technology especially when it comes to law enforcement amazon microsoft and ibm yes on june eighth. Ibm said it would discontinue general purpose facial recognition or analysis software altogether. Get out of the business completely and it made an impression after. Ibm's big letter. Amazon announced a one year moratorium on sales of they're very popular software recognition spelled with a k. To law enforcement to give congress time to implement appropriate rules so a one year ban. Yes microsoft took it a step further saying it wouldn't sell products to law enforcement at all until a federal law is in place. Here's microsoft president. Brad smith speaking to the washington post we need to use this moment to pursue a strong national law to govern facial recognition that is grounded in the protection of human rights and for matali in conde who has been pushing for regulation changes in tech for years. This was a big deal when these words were coming out of silicon valley. She felt all of the feelings. My initial was thank god. Thank god i was. I was happy. I was pleased. I was optimistic. I was short of breath. I was exhausted. Tally is the ceo of ai. For the people a fellow at both harvard and stanford universities for her. These announcements shifted the conversation. But that's about it. So i'm pleased. It's got us incredibly far but we're by no means the woods not out of the woods because for all of the advancement and facial recognition systems. Still get it wrong. They'll incorrectly match folks what's called a false positive or fail to associate the same person to two different images of false negative. Yeah and what's vaccine. Is these errors are happening. More often. when the machines are analyzing dark-skinned faces and that can disproportionally affect already marginalized communities prone to unconscious bias at the hands of law enforcement leading to false accusations arrests and much worse so until there's action on this metallic said words just aren't enough gotcha. So let's unpack this a little bit. Let's talk about how biased gets into facial recognition systems in the first place. I'd love that okay. So it starts right with how the systems learn to do their jobs. A process known as machine learning so to make facial recognition systems engineers feed algorithms large amounts of what's called training data in this case. That would be pictures of human faces. Yes the way machines learn is that they repeat task again and again and again and again and again developing a statistical model for what a face is supposed to look like so if you wanted to teach the algorithm to recognize a man you'd put in like millions of pictures of men you got it. The machine will then measure the distance between the eyes on each picture the circumference of the nose for example the ear to measurement and over time the machine starts to be able to predict whether the next image it seeing is quote a man which sounds okay right here comes the but but the machine is only a smart as its training data so remember joy ghulam weenie who i mentioned at the top of the episode. Yeah the the mit yes. So she and her colleague timid gabe developed a way to skin color in these training sets and the two they looked at were overwhelmingly composed of lighter skinned subjects. Seventy nine percent for ibi dash a and eighty six percent. For etienne's these are two common data sets that were largely as joy. Put it pale and male. So basically the training data used to create these algorithms is not diverse. And that's how that bias gets in The diversity of human beings is not always being represented in these training sets and so faces outside the systems norm. sometimes don't get recognized. Here's matala explaining what the research meant to her. That goes back to this other issue of not just hiring but a bigger issue of those no one in the team to say that you haven't put all the faces you haven't put all the digital images of all human beings could look like in the way that they sharpen society in order to recognize these faces. And it's so. After realizing how unbalanced these training sets were joy intimidate decided to create their own with equality in race and gender to get a general idea of how facial ai systems performed with a more diverse population so basically they fed it more diverse pictures to to look at. Yeah it was kind of interesting. They used images from the top ten national parliaments in the world with women in power specific yes specifically picking african and european nations and they tested this new data against three different commercially available systems for classifying gender one made by ibm the second microsoft and the third by face plus plus an running these tests joint him knit found clear discrepancies gender and racial lines with darker skinned faces getting mis classified the most. Here's mut-ali again. So one of the things that joy blue armies amazing work looks. That is the coloration between short hair and gender so many many many black women with afros where mislabeled as men mis gendered because the system had trained itself to recognize short hair as a male trait and this research project mattie produced a massive ripple effect further studies legislation in december the national institute of standards and technology or nist published a big paper of its own testing one hundred eighty nine facial recognition algorithms from around the world and they found biases to looking at one global data set some algorithms in their study produced one hundred times more false positives with african and asian faces compared to eastern european ones and when tested using another data set of mug shots from the us. The highest false positives were found among american indians with higher rates in african american and asian populations again depending on the algorithm. Wow yeah that is not what you want from your data. And i'm guessing white. Men benefited from the highest accuracy rates. Yes they did now. The knicks study did conclude that the most accurate algorithms demonstrated far less demographic bias but for multi. This evidence of bias raises a bigger question about the ethics of relying on. Ai systems to classify and police at all the problem with ai. Systems machine learning is that they're really really really good at standard routine tasks and the issue with humans is that we are not standard. We're not routine. Were actually massively messy right. We're not the same but when a police officer searches face in the system. They're not making arrests based on just spat match alone are they. Oh absolutely not. Yeah it's a tool for identifying potential suspects but if you think about how there's already implicit bias in policing critics. A facial recognition are basically saying. It doesn't make sense to embrace technologies riddled with bias to right if all this research has shown. These tools are capable of misidentifying black people. We cannot use biometric tools that discriminate against a group of people who are ready discriminated against within the criminal justice system but policing most specifically mattie. When i first spoke to mut-ali in march she was open to moratoriums on facial. Recognition like amazon is doing buying time for these systems to improve regulations to be put in place but the protests have her views. Because why why am i being moderate with completely reimagined how we interact with technology so now she wants to see facial recognition banned from law enforcement use which some cities in the us have done. Moutallos has tried to push for legislation to outlaw discrimination in technology before but it seems like now people are paying attention and have a language for talking about structural racism that they just didn't have before whether why america listened to me or not. I was gonna continue with this work. I believe that technology should be an empowering force for all people and that's my work but now having old and new ala not just allies but co-conspirators bright. I'm so happy. Because i didn't think would happen in my lifetime and it's an it's

When Defending The Land Puts Your Own Life At Risk

"So emily why did you want to focus this story on. Columbia am the philippines. So remember that report i mentioned earlier. Yeah the one from global witness yes. So they're an ngo tracking threats against grassroots environmental actus subsistence farmers opposing mining tribal leaders condemning logging. Journalists lawyers organizers the un calls these folks environmental defenders and most of the murders that global witness documented took place in just two countries columbia and the philippines and in columbia indigenous communities are especially targeted. including the. Why you me known. His and nicole's piece this is on halacha or ortiz. A member of the y. You in northern colombia. In luck waheeda heater. We spoke over a secure video chat. She told me we raise our voice in defence of the territory and that the land is so much more than territories little walmart. It's wolman cup or mother.

When mining operations appeared dedicating the only stream the community had turning it into a better london. They have lan local on her community. Not only lost a source of water but a community meeting place where women would gather and do laundry and talk. Gauloise will come through and she became an activist because she doesn't want other communities to go through what she did. Okay so tell me a little bit about the activists work that unhealthy code does in columbia. So she is the secretary general of where side they mujeres y you mounting protests against mega mining projects in la guajira particularly. This project called l. said horn and what else to hone. That is the largest coal mine in latin america and it's right in her backyard. This is illegal operation owned by multinationals digging up coal that's exported to other countries but the practice of open pit mining. Mattie has proven really disruptive to the people who live there and harmful for the environment right. I know open pit. Mining can mess up local water resources absolutely and can create pollution that is physically harmful to communities that live nearby el cerro hone overall is really polarizing. Its construction has provided jobs and wealth to some in colombia for decades but it's also displaced indigenous and afro colombian communities forcing them from their lands without real resettlement consequently they are exposed to violence largely at the hands of paramilitary groups and criminal organizations groups that harass and target defenders like on helicopter who out against human rights abuses and environmental issues like those caused by the mine and this is on top of the violence. Colombians have already faced right. I mean. I know that colombia's kind of coming out of decades of conflict a conflict. Some say is an over because of armed groups still active in the region. And how does the government there respond to these attacks. Yeah that's a good question. I mean they often dismiss them as localized crimes and perpetrators are

"Know if there isn't absolutely not having the issue anyway Take us from the camin performance on. Well you know. I do want to start a little bit with national because you know. I think that the track was faster than ki-moon's plates they've gone back away from the synthetic but it wasn't extremely fast. You know. I think it was too much talk about how it was biased or Or how a fast track was playing. You know when you have horses that run one hundred and ten buyers. Which would national should have and get me certainly did in minus three third graphs. These are these are fast forces. And they're going to run fast when they get things semi in their way or just. You know that things don't happen to them and you know and fast is gonna is gonna run fat. You know run the race it's gonna maybe create an illusion that there's a speed bias or something but you know the only argument that i would make for anybody who thinks it was a speed by on saturday is that the rates is that state together. Were the faster ones. You know anytime a race closed. That was the ones that the kind of were on the slower. Said if you had if you're doing figures but i actually think that's more pace related than it would be buys related but if somebody wanted to make the argument i i guess i would give him that but i think too much was made out of it. In general you know the the track record four or five years running once a month you know a couple of distances that only. They run because of the breeders cup. They never ran a mile before the breeders cup at keeneland they almost never run a mile on a quarter. That turf race. That was the track record. I've never seen a race at a mile. Three sixteenths at keeneland besides the breeders cup. You know it's kind of you know you got you got the best forced the world. There's what they're going to run fast especially when slow track you know it You know knicks goals had run one of the fastest rates of the year. And minute run. The fences rates of the year and nashville run at furlongs figure in the year. Before that you know they're gonna they're gonna run you know it's there's no way around it. You know so so a little bit. Was i think too. Much of that and But you know baffert winning the race before you know kind of put the pole barn valid things out of my out of play for me so get mean became more of a us at. I actually kind of flip flip-flop where i was going in that race. And i kinda was against sharon getty because i just thought that there was a good chance that the tourists run run together. But they're very good horses in. I i did. I made a good play there. I think i. I had a pretty good to nine. That wasn't playing that bad. And you know. I just didn't get lucky. There and syrian. Getting empress are really good horse and obviously mean as exceptionally good so it was It was was pretty foreign. I mean based on figures in pets performances. You know almost exactly what they always run. Yes yes press four. And how did you approach. Did you approach the turf sprint or sprint. I think this is the first.

"Old. They're still height. They're off of one race two races. You don't know how they're gonNA react when things. Don't go the way you know. Usually you've seen a an outcome when things went their way and we don't know enough about those horses yet so oh that was a race. I really wasn't interested inventing at all and by the time sharing one I was knocked out of everything else so As a as a betting perspective I I know that some of the winter was a habitable horse so I know I think I believe Jonathan hard doing them and some other people might have Come up with them. He wasn't impossible for his. Is it just was it was Not a race I was gonNA find but I the thing that you take out there. That don't necessarily buy the hype in especially the two year olds. We see this over and over again. You know it's it's hard to do because they look so good and they look visible but it's they do get over. Bet It's not like you know it's it's not like it's you know they're already Seattle slew or something. You know what I mean. Yeah there's no potential in there and things can go wrong and you don't other react to things that go wrong on the big thing about the juvenile day is what I tweeted about. Is that the discrepancy in the Times of the two races. And I don't think anybody's going to be able to land these figures correctly because you know if you believe that the track didn't change the storm of the two ran faster than the Breeders Cup classic. So that isn't true. That's obviously not true or you can go the other route to say that they were both races. Were the the the the juvenile. This was terrible and that they were. They couldn't beat amazing fifty race. I don't buy that either. I thought that was was it. I actually think that's a pretty good group. They may not be you know they're not. I'm Brian you know half bridal or you know or metal star but they're But I don't think they're a bad group and I think that the the BAFFERT horse ran pretty well being in the pace. That was was pretty hot so I can't. I can't by the fact that that that race was that slow and it's such a discrepancy that everybody's GonNa have it a little different so you know I think use your own judgment of of of It's a it's kind of like racist where you can't use figures you kinda gotta go off of more traditional handicapping and navy matching up forces. This is when they come out of these races. You know in the future. Let's see how good these races wondering I think. We'll maybe we'll know more at a later date. I think it's hard to To make any any conclusions off those those two races from all the well. Some final thoughts Paul about What the take away from mm-hmm You know I I'm always taken. How great you know to get all the horses together and these cards cards are you know? There's such a spectacle in there so there's so much fun the handicapping part of it you know and I wish there was more you know the I do. Notice that a lot of the horses that like show up on these other big cars. Nowadays a lot of the same horses ran on Wicky Day and and you know and ran on Belmont stakes day ran on perks day in the future of the way this is going to go. I think and I'm not sure it's a bad. The thing is i. I used to think it was a bad thing but I'm I'm after thirty some years. I'm I'm going to. I'm going to like it a little bit. You know I was say that the you know the thing would mind going room at the end and what you know offer you know everything else has gone pretty well. You know up until that point and I don't think that we need certain venues. You know if we I know that everybody the people want to be happy you know and have the eighty degree weather and you know like you. You WanNa mingle with the you Brad Pitt and and you know spreading the races around and keeping making sure that the horses are safe on a surface to save is got to be the paramount. I do think that anybody who does is critical of anybody among going brooms really re second guessing. You know you know. This is a horse. Who even that day performed at a high level for a mile? He didn't come out of He. He didn't run a quarter of a mile. One was obviously obviously sore. I think that you know being people being a little critical on on the decision to let the horse run. Listen it's never GONNA be zero. These are high Howard the horses that are bred to run. And you know this is This is what they were they were to do and they they're very fragile. Animals off and Mon going on the day he broke down would've won ninety nine point nine percent of races in this country. You know he he. He performed at a high level for a mile. He ran one. You know over that track you know I do pay speakers and stuff. It was in two hundred for mile so you can't say that injuries ahead of time were affecting his performance. A great point they want He. You know but these things can happen you know and they will happen at at a at a at a low rate doesn't matter what surface we run at. You know it's it's they're gonNA happen and it's just unfortunate and there's nobody. I don't like people who pretend to be said. There's nobody more sad than the racing fans. I okay. I just feel for Mr Gambit there. I can't imagine what he's going through at all this You know he's gotTa be just totally distraught you know and and that's a group group of people who just love racing you know they show up and it's a big celebration every time one of the worst is brought to you know it For something like that happened to those the people. I couldn't think of anything that was you know but I don't want it to take away from the day either because I do think it was a great day. You know. Great Days of racing. Well said Paul on all fronts and as always invaluable insight to have these races unfold what to learn from them how to be that much more prepared prepared for next time. And I'm never going back in right. I'm not going to bump here. I know I know the deal now. So in my calendar if there's fever I'll keep it I keep track. That's is a great point. Actually I'm glad you brought that now. Now I see that you're right. I can understand now the one. I'm back in the area. That's when I can thank you. Paul everybody and just invaluable always.

"Somebody could have been a second easily in that race. I did take small flyer with. It's a with war of will to and I thought he was gonna I think he's you know he's he did show speed and You know that that's what happens. Sometimes you know courses it take chances and are sometimes blow up you know so i. I don't think that that was a mistake. Yeah I think there was some value in there and you know as it turned out ongoing Roman. Mackenzie went with them but taught over scenarios where he could get a trip so he was Kinda my by oddball. Shut third horse to go with them. But but which wasn't a sole executive box but I think that You Know Rosa was a very logical horse and I sometimes get suckered into what little Andy Cole's the. The last time was the time horse but I often aware of it. I don't I don't get suckered into each race. There's a new race and it's a new out you know it's a new situation and not try to to The compare his last race to this race ace. You don't rose a went forward in his last race significantly and figures and I and I knew he would repeat that. I was a little suspect that maybe he went for that. He was able to get the lead in the race in the Jockey Club. So we're so I wasn't like all allow Russell can't lose this race mistake on my part because he's the type of person who obviously doesn't need the way but I just thought it might have you know increase. His you know his ability in that race and the head of maybe had a factor on why he ran so much better in the jockey club and and But there was no doubt you know he had. He had run at Santa Anita he had shipped in and by that time and the track it was pretty apparent he was going to get a good setup you know and so you know the person I was sitting with Venus rose. That's GonNa sit perfect this race even though You know I had delta before so I was pretty solid also it also gonNA show up and run good. I was a little disappointed in power that I thought he would get more back towards his Pacific classic race and didn't but But you know that's that's racing. You know sometimes they don't always just you know get all all the way back you know and the and the next especially in the Breeders Cup type race so but I think that was I think that was the race in a nutshell. I don't think it was a much more to it. You know your bomb. I didn't want to tell you you're you're seeking the sole was on the rail so if I'm if I'm right about the The rail not being the the best part and I'm I'm pretty sure by the end of the day it wasn't he could be a future horse to that. Could maybe get into things in a big prices down the down the road. He ended up six. Then we're still. We were still waiting for a horse. Above the age of five to winter. Breeders Cup classic that continues to be one of those one one of those bugaboos that Seeking the sole was looking to overturn and looking at the campaign and I didn't use as these exact words with todd on Monday. I probably should have. This may be the best training job with a with an an individual horse for a for a goal series of goals that he's ever had I mean talking about older horses and you know we think of Todd. God is has having most of his chances with precocious types and young horses and and the classic season but when he put him him away when they called it quits after the travers and brought him back for that three race scheme. That was the stymie the Carter and the Gold Cup then put him away again for another forty five days for the Whitney Jockey Club and classic they hit most of the marks and they ran into a ran into a buzzsaw in world of trouble in the Carter and they ran into a McKinsey in on Whitney Day but otherwise I mean this this is really. They should be very proud. I imagine todd was happy and proud of course but this one is going to really stand the test of time as as Fletcher's a masterpiece and his first classic win over Utah. You thought there on on the job when I agree with you. It was very very good training but I think in a lot of times. He doesn't have a lot of times to let the horses develop because they wanna make the horses stallions and that's where unfortunately the money is and I'll tell you I don't understand. Exactly why would I know you gotta go halfway across the world but the money that's involved with these four races low. It's getting up there to keep horses in training you know and But anyway the so maybe his lack of success as a three zero lead to to the ability to do what he did with the source. Some you know he. He hadn't he hadn't gotten a grade eight one you know. Because they switched that with memorial to a great too so they they had to in order to be successful as a stallion or or thought that the keeping running so gave tied an opportunity that sometimes he doesn't get you know that's one comment The Carter was a race. That was a weird small pace. I actually like being a row. Somebody random when he went out and actually made a score in that race when I met him out I. I didn't think he was as good as he was at that time. I you know but as nobody emerged in the older division and he did you know talking about work reports. I mean here's a horse. Who never was inspiring the workouts and all of a sudden was getting as and you know big law and you and you just watch them and you knew you know the source at at at turned a corner you know and going at going forward so There was some there. Were definitely things where you could predict it. You know going forward and I also think todd is caught up to maybe some of this other you know the modern day training and I. I don't think there's going to be a one off I. I would expect that you know. He doesn't get. I mean I know origin. Say That because he gets lots of good horses but You know there. It wasn't like in maybe ten years ago when he was getting all of them so I mean he'll get the opportunity they get a good horse and I. I think he'll this sort of thing might happen again. You know he was a rare opportunity where he had a chance. Gets you know he had a chance with the. That wasn't his lack of success at three zero to happen. Well and you know with John Gunther and I'm looking forward to get probably get to John next week. And obviously as a breeder and owner it was a great Breeders Cup for for Gunther. Between Vino. Rosso winning this and and his own without parole third in the in the mile. But this is ors you look at these. PP's his three best efforts of the year came at ten furlongs. And I. It's just you know it's just a rarity we just how many how many horses do you get the opportunity to say that about these days. Well Yeah I mean. He's a real horse. You know I wish there was. I wish there was more opportunities because I think you'd see more. That could thrive you know at the end of the court we just. There's just not enough opportunities for them. You know you don't and and and the horsemen. I wouldn't I wouldn't say it's all on the opportunity not chances. Excuse me they you should be i. I feel sorry for some. They don't get the opportunity to actually run these races more than they should. That's it's fair to Absolutely well there's a there's a full brother That we won't we won't see until twenty twenty one but Vino Rosso full brother Bike Carlin dropped this year out of mythical bride. There's an uncle Colt as well. That will come. I you'll see that one Next year as a two year old. No name yet for that Mo- baby back speaking of babies. Let's get a review of a Friday. Paul before we wrap up op and I've come to love the the juvenile turf races. There's so much fun The two dirt races obviously The situation with Dennis's moment Race was over one second after the gates opened the juvenile turf sprint. Wesley Ward Dominates. And I don't think the euros are GONNA come back and try that race anymore. They I think the lesson has been learned that they can't win that race period. Roughly beats them over there. And a Lotta Times. Yeah exactly here exactly. Did you wrote for races. You know it's a good card. I think the one thing that that I take. They're gonNA take by it. Is that you get so excited for the Breeders Cup when it's here on Friday you definitely have to pace yourself on Friday He's races are are difficult. You know it's kind of like a the senator Togo the two year old turf races even though they're a little bit over and they're better and you got a lot of good ones there you know a lot of things can happen. I mean The the the juvenile turf race was a wild scramble of a race. If you haven't watched aged decorated invader. I know that the horse from Europe didn't get a great trip either but the decorated invaders the horse to watch you. Couldn't you can't possibly get worse trip and this show and and still be able to show how brilliant he's going to be He. He had a humongous turn of foot and still kept coming. It was the the race. Wasn't I'm very fast. So that's that's the problem of of some of these therapies. I don't I'm not gonNA take that much into it. I know these how equality faces they come up slow especially when Davies. It's all a fully. Because the circumstances sources go forward and they get you know so my guess is that you'll see a lot of him. Am next year and And and some others in that race because there was a lot of that didn't get an opportunity to show what they could show the The philly race was more more of a true race. I that was my worst opinion of the whole Breeders Cup probably. I didn't like sharing. I was actually at Laurel and I. I watched the running I I was. I was wrongfully unimpressed. With her when she when she won the race at Laurel today she did and I couldn't have been more wrong about her so but I thought she was over. Bet because we're breeding you know and as it turns out. She wasn't really over bet and she was what much better than I thought she was. So I couldn't have been more long. They're the So that that I am not turf. I don't think it was a what and another mistake Canadian the on the Philly turf just real quickly is that the I thought that European horses were impressive in the in the races when I watched them and I thought it was a high quality bunch and as it turned out. I'm not so sure they were so so that way to like. I said if you're going to be wrong. In my way off I was completely awesome and any anything to take away On the on the Philly and Juvenile Colt the front storm. The court got a nice nice figure and the just when you see a race like this and all the favorites are in the back of the chart it it it just sorta takes tobacco a little bit and of course you know you feel terrible for Brendon Walsh. Who you gotTA assume field? I mean assuming that Max field runs a race is that that he probably Was As likely to win that as anybody was the only I would take from the juvenile. Is that you don't be so sold on a horse.

"I I wouldn't fall for that horse. You know because was because he was one in your in you know wasn't closer than anything well and that gets us to the Turfan. And we'll we got the turf classic to discuss from Saturday before a serving the the juvenile's and Richard Mandella and united are the same kind of story Richard mid that was not going to run this source with the raw sitting there to get humiliated and he's a horse that has consistently at all levels where you know. Whenever whatever situation situation he's been put in? He's acquitted himself. Well I I kind of glossed over him. One horse that I didn't miss was Zulu Alpha. Who you disappointed last time but I had confidence that you know that may then when he drew the one I figured he's GonNa get all kinds of ground? Saving Journey I was. I didn't didn't have a lot of interest in in Anthony. Van dyck singled bricks and mortar on everything et. Bricks and mortar doesn't win I you know my weekend is is I had a couple of prices including sharing but bricks and mortar. Winning made a big difference in all the Maltese. The two-day bet well. I'm GonNa make a comment undo of two comments into what else but I do Alpha doesn't like Belmont so that that was one reason to get to use them to make sure the Adam and also he got a terrible right in in this race so I don't know if they're gonNA keep running him on the soon they are but he's a he's a follow eastgate. I liked certain. He's a little particular on what he likes and Ah But he's a good horse to watch because he's very talented and he didn't he didn't he. got a horrible I in the third but going into the race I think the race was. You know I had a diff- I had. Maybe the wrong take. But but but The race wants. Let's break bricks and mortar versus anthony. Van dyck that was that was going to be the race If if the race had pace had more of a pace you know united lighted like others was a lot of words to get in especially if they've got a trip to the united got but the race was going to be those two if they if they got into a you you know a real dash you know it didn't it didn't really work out that way and I want to raise it. Sandinista don't even mile and a half races. The dash shorter shorter and You know the the argument could be made that bricks and mortar. Got A better than Anthony. Van Dyck I'm not so sure about that. And and and I mean I was strongly in the Anthony Being Camp before and I thought that he would improve more as a three year olds at the end of the year. Like we talked about earlier. I was a chance that he could explode at the end of the year being a three year old and I don't think he did so I'm not all that disappointing. That he didn't get the clitoris of runs in the in in the race but but I thought the race was a two horse race. It was going to be come down to which one was better I think what we were talking earlier was or even though it's O'Brien money's no object and they run two million dollars He definitely pointed for this race. Yes and the the say the need a mile and and a half versus the Epson epsom mile and a half have a lot of similarities You know And so any horse. Who Runs? Well I'd absence going to run one good Santa Anita I I would I would think and in the future going forward it just You know I don't think this was a great Breeders Cup turf which may have led to be able bricks and mortar. Get and the race was a little bit because it wasn't a huge dash and then they go Very very fascinating probably work to his advantage. You know maybe maybe on his so called distance limitations here if he has any. I don't know if that was oh nonsense or not but but he is you know the way to work in his advantage but I've been very very logical that he could win this race and Like I said I don't think they're the greatest. It's the greatest Breeders Cup turf and probably it's probably on the lower side but who cares. I mean that's you know that's for if you want to you know talk up with Different panelists ten years from now and you want to compare winter. You're not going anywhere you're so you'RE GONNA be around ten years if I am We will we. Could we can do this. And we can compare them to Stein Lynn and you you know it. Whoever whoever you WANNA pick out from Breeder's Cup history I do WanNa mention You go back to the United for a second and and Pratt Ed Pratt had the one win on on Friday but he had four seconds and four thirds. And I don't know if anybody if you saw my tweet from sat Sunday morning I was doing stats and and kind of digging through sifting through looking for things ball and his record in these four breeders cups. He's got three Winston in thirty eight starts but then he's got he's got fourteen seconds and thirds. I mean he gets your horse into the money and he gets your horse. And and a lot of cases if you go through his all his mounts The particularly the previous three years he was on longer priced horses forces and his first couple years you know he was thought of as a turf writer so he was in all these turf races where you know the win winners and trips determine everything everything I mean. He is without a lot of heralding. An absolute elite writer in this country. Right now I mean the the only got to go to the people in California love. He's GonNa he's GonNa Continue. He went you know we wanted Kentucky Derby Right. He's going to continue and get the grades. Says he's going to he'll he'll be forced to come a harness racing right. I believe that's right. He he he. He owns some. I discussed that with last year. I'd like to see him become the first I. I know winner Breeders Cup and the breeders crown. He's gotten into bike of times. Yeah absolutely comfortable Eh. Without discussing the classic there was Matola midnight. Be Sue and bricks and mortar are going to be the three three finalists for horse of the year. That is without question did bricks and mortar. Seal the deal as worse of the year with that one. Yeah probably Roy you know I I I don't know I don't think he's seal the deal in that race. I think code of honor of quote of honor had one was going to be here in the in the classic. You know you run second in the Derby. You win the travers. The Jockey Club Gold Cup and Breeders Cup classic here so you know. I don't think it was over. It was my might have been some Premature celebration when he had twenty one. But you know I think at this point you're there you go now. Let's go to the classic and to some I'm degree there was. There was speculation that this was wide open and You know that there's a negatives about you so all of the favorites and certain horses are clearly ten furlong a potential and really the winner as you as you you already alluded to. The winner was much the best and frankly the runner up for all the abuse. He's taken as not that good or to my not really a mile. mylan quarter he. He did all he could do to to hold off. Vino Rosso but your thoughts on how the classic unfolded ended. I Made A. I made a big tactical air industry. I you know I don't know if I did or not You know. In retrospect it did. Because you know we don't roasted did win by for lengths so I was I never got beyond because you were with all those movie stars Down California. I would've told everybody the wrong thing. I was completely we against Mackenzie in the race. Not necessarily because of the mile and a quarter. I didn't like the way he was coming into the race And I saw that. I thought he'd the over bed and I thought he was a little over the top and I think his race was solid. But it wasn't as good as whippy you know. In retrospect so I don't think I was completely wrong but You know I was joking. There was a lot of the sheets guys in the third breath people who who rightfully so he had the highest numbers and they thought he was going to bounce back. But you know th there's a thing called an ex uh-huh that the third graph sheets people Mackenzie was literally no to that was his last two figures. Yep We're all too so if you if you subscribe to the X. Factor you had to predict on a sheet not necessarily in the third. You know thoroughbreds higher but she was all all too so anybody was thinking Oh to wax you know You know you had to think there was a possibility that he was going to go forward. I'm not I'm not saying that's a huge thing. But you know that factor in but I that gave me more more print so what I thought was going to happen. That he was already over the top. And let's just GonNa go that direction and also I didn't think the pay scenario was going to be great form and it turned out it wasn't it wasn't ideal but it wasn't terribly either because the other two sources went and he was able to set off a little bit the You know my friend are neutral friend. John Nichols Crocker. Here it's been on your show. Made the point that that he was against code of honor. Because he didn't he you know he watches these horses trained on the normal and didn't think he would be the type of work that could handle the deeper surface at the Santa Anita and he was spot on and that. If you could get to at that point you know which which I followed his lead. I thought the race was higher Higher Power and Beano Rosa when I made a huge watch the two and you know I ran first and third but not really good. Never had a chance to really win and didn't use Mackenzie at all in any of the gimmick so I kind of that's why I say I blew it a little bit but you know we don't also won by four Lang and if I think if there was somebody else in the race or another circumstance where are.

"The one thing that I that I'm starting to learn by seen more of these mile turf races at watching other tracks at other places set different from dirt racing and something that that's different for me and probably for some of the people listening I. It probably never thought of things like this. That coming up with is that I'm worrying. That wake means more and turf races. This is an even in sprints. I sprinted even means more because I think the wait actually has more effect on the quickens of horses and the perfect the one with the quicken you know whether it be the quicken on the lead. Scoot you away or the one that that rose you buy and I don't think I think it's a coincidence that these phillies have dominated mile races. All over the world because they always getting await break and it's getting to the point where now it's not. Oh great philly running with the the boys. I mean. It's happening everywhere. It's happened over and over again. You know. Even even recent time going from goal the Cole Haan and I'm I'm going to start taking notice more of these of weight in in mile per phrases. I think it's much more of a factor and these phillies because they get a break. Get have a huge ED sweat. Go through the list of time Pepin the Allman You know the horsemen Japan winks the Australian these two phillies. It even going back yet. They're they're there It's not a coincidence. I I've come to the conclusion. It's not a coincidence. And the and the way phillies are are are made the way they're built probably have a little bit of advantage on a quick but I think it's more so there's an an oddball Perception of readers. I came up with that. I feel like I actually done that. I hadn't thought about this before since I've been watching. This happened for thirty thirty years but I I think there's more to the fact that it's just phillies. I think it's there's a wait and I'm going to try to use that more. My in my day to day handicapper your your reference to the sprint side of things John Route with me years ago and because I brought up wait and how you know the scale has shifted and there's the the weight for age discussion or the weight for age practice a broad but I asked him for his thoughts and he said that counter-intuitively he felt that weight. It's in sprints was even more significant than over a over a route of ground because the ability or the or the Cecil of weight out of the gate and horses start in a sprint and that weight came concept. You know. It's the same concept wha- what he's saying is the same thing that that I'm saying I'm I'm glad you brought that up because you you know. There's nobody more knows sources more than than he did and you know that That would that. Would that would go right along. With what what we're saying you know because it's not speed from the gate when you're running a mile turf rate you know. It's it's where you use the speed and the strikes which makes the which wins the race you know in in a in a sprint race and certainly back in their neighborhoods time sprint. No the the strides that would be important would be the ones from the gate in a sprint race. Ace the You know it differs in a mile. You know. Go Hand in hand. I that's perfect. We'll turn to the DISTAFF and this yesterday. The conversation we had with the natural courageous. You know I I had sort of gone into this Paul thinking that That she had once again. Run her her staff in the spinster. But then when you saw her leading up on track all week weeklong she just looked incredible. Same Way Vino Rosso did leading into the classic But it still. It was hard to to to look get this field and you know even though midnight. BC did not have a a edge on figs. She you know she had so regularly. You know I've been able to overcome circumstances that I it was tough to you. Know to see her getting beat. You could reach in a lot of directions if you wanted to take a stand against her. She goes off at even money and she ends up surrounded by a nine to one shot a ten to one and a twelve to one for the super factor and some people reached for Dunbar road. there was the seren getty empress wire potential storyline Paradise Woods who was disastrous? Chris and didn't get that she was. She was almost twelve to one and the board told the story on her well she was going to be in in a bad predicament. Because you knew they're getting impersonal is going to go all out to get the league and she didn't care if it didn't matter what was going to happen so I thought because of the presence of Saragan impress the race became somewhat simpler. I made a huge mistake and I'm not exactly sure why I got I'm going to think about this in probably for more time. And when she comes out and wins next year even more mad but the Syrian and get the impression in the race. I think wiped out the California nurses which left I thought four contenders her. The you know the favorite midnight Blue Prize and Dunbar road. You know. I made the wrong assumption. That Dunbar road was GONNA beat blue price so use blue prize a lot in the race and use their weather. I'm I'm still not sure why Dunbar road didn't show up it doesn't make sense to me. That blueprints wins and Dunbar does run in that I know there was the phillies and she's thrilled. Philly and cheese shipping across to. She's not running from from her style but I heard her performance is probably the most appointing to me because you know the fact that Blue Prizes does win and Dunbar road was as good or if not better in the race keeneland and I'm just I'm really. I don't quite understand I mean done by road was on the rail for a little bit in this race but not enough to really The you know to to to have her that not show up at the way she did. Otherwise I think I had the race. Pretty much A spot on I used the Dunbar road three one. Two three I think it was pretty logical midnight. Be Weird Horse because you know you have to respect actor in. She was A. She had an awesome year but her her performances were pretty much there on the forum. If if you look at it she got good. Setups in the races says that she ran really big and then the racist where she overcame Trouble and overcame things the the figures were lower and it was a good lesson just in just look at her form and look at her figures and you get to see what how horses will perform when things golden away and when and when was don't go their way you know and she was there you knew what you like and you know midnight. Blue price were work far apart. Most years this staff you know and both of them were coming in in good form and as and you and you knew both we're going to run one so why wouldn't they be close and as it turned out prize. Got A got a great ride. I'm not saying midnight these. We've got a a bad ride but he didn't get an ideal trip trip and And the other got a tremendous ride and beat to the punch and not that surprising that she could beat her. I you know I. I don't see it as being all that. You know all that shocking you know especially for the price you're getting on the the two of them seemed a little out of whack but But not way it'd be interesting. I get normal logical normal logical result and Personally I the only thing I found a little weird about this race. Is that Dunbar road sub forms. There's a couple of things that I WANNA ask. As follow ups part of it includes the classic result. Salt should a late have run in this race. How would she yeah? She should run and I get that at all. You know that was crazy to me but I don't know how that you know she. She certainly would have been in the in the mix you never. She wouldn't have been one-two-three three. I mean those. Those horses beater all year. So it would be hard to You know the tourists that beater all all your were were decent and blue price. So I mean I think I think based on performance you could make the argument that could Beatles doors you know With the way the race with the way the race unfolded. There's a case to be made that she could have sat where all these candy was. She could have sat a comfortable third or fourth north. And had I jump on the tiring leaders and then faced bid NYPD blue prize late and I never made any an talked about this two weeks ago and he was. He was a guest that they that they would fall for that concept that she was better. Ah Ten furlongs. It's better yes. She's better at ten furlongs beating tomato cans. I mean it's well I you know I I. I don't WanNA could be a hair too strong but I I just I didn't get it and on top of everything else you know I. I was more in tuned because that was You know Looking at one two run in what races he could run and I was more in tune new of what how much money it costs to run any trace and the and the And the winning. You're in which I make a point about the winning you're into I know we're taking all your time up this morning. the Wait how to win your into this race so not only today run in the classic they follow the money any up the run in the in the classic it didn't cost him anything to run in the in the press which is which made that made that decision even even a little bit more crazy to me but one thing that I did find and I'm GONNA I'M GONNA keep this in mind in something you can do wherever in that you can do in future years cups. Is that if I have negative thoughts on horses that are win. You're in that are running. I think people will run more more if they're if they are winning. You're in specially shippers especially European or so. I'm going to be more in tune to that. You know like yeah which European horses are pain? The come and which ones are winning. You're in might be using the vacation as well as you know as a chance to win and and because it's a free role it's the old yup and you know a free role is the intent is is not not as strong in a free role and I'm going to start using handicap in the future. Breeders go then we go back and sift through some of them that you know like a Fan Logan for instance that that had that had to come and they were paying make no doubt sources in those races Like were glitters. Whatever was when you're in so everybody's saying well? Why would he run off bad performance? I I wouldn't fall for that horse. You know because was because he was one in your in you know wasn't closer than anything well and that gets us to the Turfan..

"That was going to be a fairly short price. Ends up four to five on sister Charlie. And for those that we're taking stock of. How did you know how to utilize the Chad? Brown's bricks and mortar in the turf and sister Charlie in Philly and Mayor Turf. And if you we're you know if you're on a budget there are places you know to make stands on Saturday and for me. It was bricks I only use sister Charlie arly and basilica when it came to this race personally to try to stay narrow and spread elsewhere but Sister Charlie really never really never mounted mounted much of a of a challenge in here it was all the silica. She ran a race really too good to lose But you gotta give. I've Wayne Lorden. And Joseph O'Brien all the credit iridescent. You know ready to run. And Lord matter well positioned throughout and and she was is up to it in the late stages even basilica did not want to let her by another tough before me. I had a big double going Silica and I think you knew that I liked this. Okay I don't know we. We texted something about it but I made a good decision to go to her. And I'm really wasn't against sister Charlie. I wasn't enough off their to go against the right thing because of the the race was slow and even though it was a weird pace and she had a different rabbit. I think think even other people mentioned maybe nick or little Andy mentioned that was not her a game that she one coming off this you know in that race you know I i. I don't know what it meant. That was the hard part so I don't really. I wouldn't second guess anybody who was for or against in that race it was. It was a tough one to decipher race. The Belmont but a little bit there at the time was slow and she had to work to beat that Mississippi. I wasn't a believer in so made that easy. I think that that was a negative. I know some other people were high on her but she had had perfect triplets. Third Togan and I wasn't really buying the fact that she had gotten better. So I I kind of use that as maybe a gauge that She had gone a little backwards and it was enough there to to not trust. They're completely but I. I never was under the assumption that she wasn't going to run. He just knew that she would run. She wouldn't be out of it. You know so that is a tough one no now. There's enough there to bet against there but you're not completely against you know so I think the nature of the race kind of played out for the horses who ran first. And second to you know. In retrospect you know because the horse that Merthyr whatever went opened up and You know it was a kind of a race where the leader down lines but nobody else does and nobody believes the pace. Nobody chaser so they were kind of like. It was almost like that. I wasn't even in the race and the speed held up. You know and that was kind of the way they wait was and I might in the future give courses that were off the pace maybe a little bit extra credit. Even though it's GonNa look it was a fast pace because the personal stuff I would look at it at that race horses in it. You know and that everything's stayed together together behind her you know and that As far as you know personally that was a tough beat me because the smoke and also just from a band walk of race facing and everything that was a pick five. That was the big pick five in never playing a lot of money to pick five so when the rain came up I had a death in the mix I it could hit that executive You know it but when they came up I just kind of took the silicon top and said if I I don't WanNa put a lot more money besides the besides the ray so I felt like personally. That was a missed opportunity for me. Because I could've hit the tribe really good probably but And also just the vissel would've been a good result so it was a tough one for me but you know it was happy to see basilica run good to A. I didn't I didn't know going in and it was going to be a relapse rate but But that's all goes well and Pratt Pratt. Had the unenviable position he got her out of the gate and took position early on. And then you're in that awkward that awkward spot halfway down the backstretch of deciding when to start art to go get The leader and even though he didn't aggressively go chase mirth. You're still you. You become become the target and Lorden. I thought he did a masterful job of of assessing what was going on in that regard. I mean he was a good two three months just sitting and waiting and when Pratt made the you know his initial move Lorden just very casually started the gear gear up and meanwhile the Horse I with on their edessa and I I was kicking myself later. The horse that I fell in love with going into this all leading up from pre-entry even before pre entry was fanny Logan and she had the look to me of Queens Trust from three years ago and she ran a a terrific race from an impossible post and is going to be a really nice Philly As as a four year old hope she comes back to Keeneland next year dettori gave gave her as much of a chance as he could and she ends up fourth and she took money to she got fat. She was just under ten to one the the Public Paul it. It seemed like they were mixing and matching all of these. The other euros you know that builds a Don Brooke became talking talking mayor as the week went on on Villa Marina had some you know. Some people Mississippi Castle lady did not get that and did not run which I thought was notable notable as well and that was off the good performance at keeneland beyond Cambier Park. You know so money spread all over the place when it came to try to you know. Pick the euro you like you. You like the best chromebook because You Know Bennie. Logan headed run against high-quality horses. But you knew she would go left handed you did. And you knew that she'd show up thousand wasn't gonNA come up in or wasn't gonNA run good in in new that and you know we were talking about the race I just I. There's no way you could be critical of it. I think you're spot on that IRIDESCENT got a great right but I think Pratt gave great right two inches. That's racing sometimes blue. You know. Sometimes it's a drag. I thought it was a great right. It would be hard Anybody was critical. Him is making a mistake. It was a you know. No Ah I haven't heard any criticism talk about the sprint. The Not a lot to say here. I mean it came down. It seemed when imperial hint laughed the scene. It was coming down to the two horses. And do that's how it happened. That's I would ran. The scratches came up this changed completely and the other scratch was important to when the Doug O'Neill horse came out 'cause that that kind of changed the face You know they knew that the Japanese horse which show speed but He wouldn't be He wouldn't be able to go with chance or even even even attempt to. I don't think so in new kind of how the race was going to go. I was impressed with training. Job that Steve Asmussen Matola and his strategy of this race. Uh You know. Sometimes he gets lost in the super trainers about out great job they do You know you make the argument. He had a great horse. And you know and the Great Horse One and I understand that but he trained that horse in a different way laid the horse off Book did the gate work and then had the the confidence into to who rate and just say all right. We're going to get to this point and we're still going to be able to run down. SHANTZ lab. We're going to take our chances. We have that much faith than I thought that it was a Extremely confident move and I I was. I was impressed by it all even though you know technically it was the favourite beaten you know the best source beating the second best source. I think there was a little bit more there but like you said I know anybody who had an opinion in the right. I don't blame new if you took a shot on one or the other you know like if you wanted to sing on these gifts because you could create value if you were right but I thought pretty much going in the that was race where you just be safe and you take the two you know. That's the that was the strategy there. And that's the way played-out well same thing could be said really of the the result in the mile. Paul the story going in was all the two mayors the Philly in the mayor got stormy Uni and then as we were handicapping and the field took shape. People started to make you know cases for all kinds of other horses but then when I think when anybody sat down and really made decisions. You basically we're going to take out stormy and then maybe add in and you know whatever whoever you thought had a little bit notable look. I was against Circus Maximus. I tried to I. I kinda got caught up in the Hague hysteria and La Colon. I thought Ah Kuan. When he drew the two was going to get a great trip and he really offered little but this race ended up? Being couldn't be more formal. Well I think the scratch played a part in this race to one of the problems with detainees captain in the of doing it all ahead of time is that you you gotta you gotTa be prepared. But you don't WanNa get sold into some opinions of a racist GonNa win you know and and I think that maybe there was an overreaction overreaction to it in this race obviously some reaction but I think the the the nervousness of this race was that with bowl allows that somebody could get the lead easy you know whether it be mcallen or or you know Hey give them on grounds or even There was talk that that story was going to go the lead. You know That made the race tougher to decipher. Because as has great as UMI is and the turn of foot that she has and there was no doubt going in that she she had the highest figures she was she had the best quicken and and She has a little pace dependent. You know and so you had some doubts that that she was going to get you know. Get a piece to run at especially when bowl okay came out. I guess that would be the only thing that you could say.

"There'd be there'd be somebody that would send from the middle you know and get their you know given the middle so I envision belvoir baby and you know hung out Presen- you know and and You know that was. That was my mistake so I am very familiar with lots of horses. Incorporate Gore Bay wasn't one of them so I can't even tell you how many I use. It was a lot of them and a and and she wasn't she wasn't one so she busted me out of everything and it was a sad race for me because my horse ran. Well he'd and yet You you know I wasn't I was close but I wasn't. You know by not using her. So that's you know that's that's the nature though spiteful and turf races you know going in you knew that was going to be good at on the race and then just the way sort of course as we're playing it was gonna be you know whoever got the lead was going to be in it. I'd never really thought of it that way and I probably should've I by the time retires and we discussed with Peter Your Miller that you know that he is a horse. He's not a gelding seven years old and he's by Munnings so he he was particularly taking get him a great one win. He's multiple multiple grade. One placed several distances and including the Jaipur and this he of of course was was second coming down the hill when obviously beat him. He's been in at least three. Maybe four breeders cups. He beat American Pharaoh in their debut. Race I mean he's a remarkable horse in a Lotta ways one four believable. He's now made I. I hope he doesn't get the opportunity but If they you know these rumors I don't. I don't like this. You know this idea that that they're going to a solution to all this stuff that synthetic I hope they don't make that mistake again but for but if they do on on would be a horse that could benefit by it but I just I'd I would say some things that I I just I don. I hope that horse race. He doesn't make that mistake again. But into and it would really have a humongous impact on the breeding. I guess that would be the reason that and I'm not really into the breeding but I don't think they realize how much of a If if it if it goes to all synthetic you know I mean that would just be the end of of Kentucky Breeding. You know maybe the end of it but it would. It would ruin their their advantages and I hope I hope that there's some smart people realize that and You know the time and money that To make these tracks better you know would be my solution instead of putting more money for for synthetic I just hope. That's the way that they that people see you know it's We have the tradition of their racing. That and that's what makes American racing so special good and that's why we know who the best horses are. I mean I'll give you example that they ran the Melbourne crop at two miles in Australia. And you can make a case that the fourteenth was the Best Course Championship the fourteenth anybody question at all that you know Rosa wasn't the best source event. I mean you know so you WanNa start breeding some of these forces and synthetic courses and think you're GONNA end up with Kirwin Ecuador type forces. You're crazy we may have to revisit this discussion when when when the time comes. Let's Press forward into the dirt mile and you know. I had been kind of intrigued by spun to run Paul going back to the Haskell press conference when Guerrero was over the top about how good this source was and was going to be and the best ever trained the best he'd ever laid his eyes on in an Amazon. And you ran a good enough third that day but in in the Pennsylvania Derby again you know a kind of a distant didn't What was he fourth or fifth that day? Yeah fifth beating the length and a half so we're kind of waiting for a performance. He won the Smarty Jones nicely and then after that blessing mile and I you D- texted or or or tweeted that that may have been the best performance former spy a three-year-old in you know in the year and I of the year and I mentioned it on the air repeatedly and kept telling everybody to watch that he he was gonna be a danger and I this. was you know for Saturday. This was a really key performance and he just did not look back a rat Ortiz on a mission. Shen out of the gate. Well that was. That was another sparkles that I read made uh or or or Carlos Mate but Pretty pretty good for me. You know I had You know like you said. I think I've got two lights on that one. Originally it went off after he won the dirt mile. They're getting some whites on the fact that he was the best three-year-old performance. After the fact I think when I when I originally tweeted I got to. I don't so kudos deliver the two people that liked it originally but You know it was obvious if you you know another thing where you know in this day and age you get to watch replay so even if you missed spun two runs race race you could go watch it and if you watched it. There's no possible way you could. You couldn't come away being impressed with with the run You know and then I was. I was surprised on some of the some of the figure makers. Didn't go with the figure which I was a little surprised. And then even the ones who did like vire our he was on something you know doubting the validity of it because at park so you know even though they did they did get a correct in in the and the forum rightfully so but the you know it. It shouldn't be. It shouldn't shock to anybody that that he was able to beat You know a good horse like Like Omaha Beach He. I like we talked about earlier. It's a good example. You know this is only three weeks ago you know. I wish there was more racist so that you can you. You can have confidence in you even care about him working. You saw him three weeks ago. You good he was you know. Could he could ship and run and have that same performance. We didn't know no you know he did run. Good in the half. The one thing you didn't mention about the Haskell was that he was like a long way off in that race you know and At that Hassle Bay hey was a was a memorable day one hundred degrees and They cancelled Saratoga. And my friend Martha Graham and I Rented a Boston. We went down to To to the Haskell from from Saratoga and during the during the right down mercer was telling me about how what you said calls girl loves source and he thinks he's the best stories ever training one and I'm just I'm thinking under the real. Yeah he's GonNa win this race off eight months you know and then afterwards I I was very impressed with and so that put me on to him a little bit ahead of time so I've been watching them I'm not I'm not completely critical of rides but I know some other people don't don't necessarily agree with this. I don't like the way he was handled in the in the Pennsylvania Derby. I don't like the way a lot of the horses. We're handle the Pennsylvania Derby so I think it was tricky and I think it was to To make too much out of that race so it was easy for me to give him the benefit of doubt especially when he came back one at such A. You know in such a manner any other race beach you know I. I was critical but the way they handle doors. You know I I don't like it. You know that the this the way they were going to go now some people will say you know. He reacted off the wind. He wasn't good enough. Everybody's going to fit their agenda I would have liked to run the classic and and run differently. I maybe we'll get a chance down the road to see how good is running out of time and you know I. I think people think that he'd brand poorly is probably. It's probably probably too hard on them. You know one thing that was missed in the race that he did win when he beat chance a lot he did get a perfect trip so you know the fact that that the no the railway was probably good today he they wanted in handicapped in terms. It's one of those things where you got to separate something that was an incredible performance versus. What would it took to do it you know? It was such a great thing just to win the race but he got a little. You know so when you're you got a three to five Scott who got a perfect trip it doesn't it doesn't change no. It's same thing because if you're betting claimer later on so you know acquaintance a regular claiming race on on a on a Tuesday afternoon. A perfect trump is the perfect trip. And if the if he's GonNa get over bet because of it you you gotta you gotTa take notice of it. You gotta use it in your and your thanking. You know it was such a great race it was it was impossible to ignore but but it was. It was enough there for you to be where you could be a little. You know. And I'm ensured. The other the balanced people were going to say that he bounced in and there was some of that as well. I think it's more of the other that And the only thing that that that nobody really talks about this was was a really good race. He's got mile you know. Everybody thought they were taking an edge by by entering the Breeders Cup Mile. They weren't taking any edges. You know I mean as we saw a lot of people have mentioned. The horse was high quality ores blue chipper. I mean the pleasure horse at one in Dubai you know had come off a win at the park in the park phrase it spun. The run list is that money improbable. I mean. I mean Jane expectations who didn't run good to put the but it's a very classy. This was a real race you know and to just assume that he was he was going to win this race. Because it wasn't the was the classic mistake and Maybe maybe it wasn't for anybody going forward. I'm not sure we're going to be a lotta horses in this circumstances but you know similar things might happen happen and they happen every day in there there were again. There were a couple of things here that that work in in general terms TMZ using a horse like blue chipper where there was just one positive indication after another all week along. I mean everybody that that we talked to the only guy that was sort of negative From a principal standpoint was Ron Anderson but Mike Welch Welsh Gary Young Derek Lawson talking a separately about about how good the blue chipper. How Pratt how confident Pratt was on him immediately? After doing a two minute liquor they basically went around a couple of times and Pratt reported back and I told everybody this last week. Courtesy of Derek that the the horse didn't wasn't tiring all over that over the deep surface office and so at at sixteen to one with the favorite the even money and the horse that to me was was the right price ended up with one hundred and seventy five dollar. Try it three hundred and fifty dollar try for a buck and if you were you if you were clever and yeah the horse that I didn't hear discussed all week ball. I didn't bring them up myself. snappers Claire Ends up fourth in here as the the second. Longest shot on the board. To put the Spurs to the the Super The super paid five seventy for a dime. I missed the super but I did it to try and but you blue trip or you know. We talked about earlier the amount of information. It's unbelievable I was watching Korean. Replace you know watching these races and It was it was apparent. You know how deep to try to the in in in Korea that He wasn't going to have any problem with depression. You know that was a good thing for him. You know so if you if you were under that under assumption that that was another reason to push this too that he would run well so and like you said he had he had trained so good and everybody the reports. You know you watch them. He's he's a beautiful horse. Oh you know. He's a high quality to book. That was true going in it was just a you know a good rape. And that's what the reasonable about. Well we get to do one of the horses for the whole weekend..

"He's not gonNA catch him today. Quote Unquote so that got the under since we since we're very very very Very trained for my brother Myself For since for twenty some years do you the We met him in Las Vegas and the mid nineties and he started trained for. That's right away and we hit it off and You know he's just a great guy. So you know any set a lot of hard hardship fear and I saw him out in out in Santa Anita maybe a year or two ago and You know he just. He's a tough guy. He just keeps going literally. Literally the he echoed he echoed the Jimmy Wingfield story Essentially walked essentially walked out a Russia. I as a young man and made his way the United States and is just beloved. I mean the the outpouring on Saturday Saturday really got the day from start to finish. It was an emotional day. Let's turn let let's stick with Saturday. We'll do the juvenile's afterward and dive right right into the action you brought up kaffee terrific ride by Rosario Outta that one hole and the horse you know the first reference point the horse that really early ran under five to one Bella Fina and you know it's not a form reversal really but Kind of getting back to what she's meant to do. Paul all you think partly and getting back Running out of her own stall I mean she's run. She's run five nearly flawless races at Santa Anita in her career. That rings was a Was An odd one. I kind of went the wrong way. This is one of the things that was probably tough on this day for some people I in including myself that you know predicting shapes and taking that That that approach instead of taking the fastest horse you know type of thing. I think you could sit in this day and second guess yourself either way for not playing. They were playing 'em you know just a little bit different and confess. It could have been in trouble double. I mean like you said Rosero Rodent Rodent perfect. I think they got a little bit of a break. When selkirk didn't didn't break and then show her speed I think a little bit? I know what it would have been. It would have been much more difficult for her to do what she did. With the strategy they chose you know with with her breaking bed. It really worked out You know really worked out for them and Elefsina was the only interesting horse in the race. You know I didn't make that. I didn't fall for anybody else in that race. which was pretty good but I got to the point where it was just Bella Fina with one of the two favorites and and the bet against both of them? You know another another thing. I think that you might have to that. I've kind of processed. Just you know bet have forced him to Bechtol. He's better races Has got to try to handicap. You know these horses were used to horses. Horses shipping from their out of their own stall but we with big trainers who have have divisions everywhere. So they're shipping but they're really really not you know whereas a horse come. Dancing is really shipping old school Chevy and the one thing that really never thought of that. I'M GONNA we'll have to start thinking more of this that she had never successively shipped and random. I don't think she ever ship them. Ran Anywhere period. You know and you never did it successfully. And that I think in Breeders Cups I'm GonNa use that more as a factor you know and you could use that conversely with fina she has been shipping and running all over the place all year. Here you know and this was a time where she wasn't going to have to do that. You Know I. I was disappointed in seven on race which led let me Nafta go one hundred percent with her but I wasn't strong enough with her that it wouldn't have mattered if she had one. It would have been an okay result for me anyway. Anti Anti Ram Charan Greg and but I don't think I think those are lessons in that race. I think it was a pretty simple race that it was easy navy to be fooled by some other. But if you really dug into it you would you would have got to the point. Were really only three. Horses have won that race. Well and I don't disagree. Sorry I tried to. I tried to jump through some hoops and I had two ideas to kind of notions going into Saturday that I wanted. I wanted to play with the A to baldness horses in the Philly and mayor raises in the distaff and in this race and Lady Ninja in kind of looked like she was. She was baby babysitting on a on a point where she would go forward and this has been so good in big spots and and getting horses to run and she never. We're really lifted off. I I will make the point that there were a lot of people when we use the reverse try key concept. We talk about a lot horses that that are gonNA clunk up for a share at a big price and there were two horses in the sprint races ball that both came through with more in the six furlong sprint and and dawn the destroyer here. If you were a person that was looking for a clunk up twenty to one shot you you won the and you got paid pretty very good. It was. It was ninety five dollars basically for for a buck in the try and there were a lot of people thought don the destroyer was the right closer in here and they were right well very logical and and and to to go back to what we said before that You know there were reasons why maybe one of one of the favorites could run out empty. If they didn't run they could be out. You know so a horse like that could definitely Get in I've always liked that on this dreyer I came to the conclusion including that race at Keeneland was a slow race so I didn't think that her or spice affection really had a chance to win. I was surprised how how people are the veterans are though I thought they were going to fall for the other one might twice perfection Because he had such a bad trip. You know those tapers is that you know the the traps that sometimes in the past people would fall for but You know we have the greatest cameras in the world. Nowadays they in fall for her either But it was a pretty logical rape and I agree with you. said she was the one that probably fill the the bottom of the gimmicks before we turn to the turf sprint. What was your assessment from Thursday into Friday and then Friday into Saturday at this point evaluating? Are you waiting the racetrack. Because there was plenty said going in about the depth and about how slow they wanted it. And you know there's plenty to say about this coming out. But what was your tracks speed thoughts and in terms of race flow and any any good part of the track bad part part of the track in general because when we talk about the the juvenile races And I know you did see your tweet about this About the the way. Hey the track changed between the juvenile fillies and the juvenile boys but what was the overall assessment of the way. The track was well on Friday. It started started off real slow the track and it didn't it didn't appear that the rail was was bad at. You know we get to that horse of the hammers that one way or the wire and And I it was an unusual on the fact that I thought that was pretty even when it started off and You Oh so you didn't worry about bias or anything. Even though it was tiring you know so I thought that I thought that they were gonNA. They were gonNA leave it alone. I actually I made the mistake that they were gonna they were but evidently. I'm sure there was complaints that the track was too slow from horsemen and And I'm I'm assuming that's why they've changed it and I think it was very hard to keep in real time to go. What's going on because you know you had this even even slow tracks and then with the with the nature of the juvenile raise the horse breaking bad and the the the bust out results you know kind of the times weren't really at the top happy your thoughts or the fact that the other way or to wire and it It did hit me in the last race on that day that the tracks had had clearly sped up and that the that the track was different so going into the race on Saturday. I didn't know what to expect but I thought they were pretty formed full results. And maybe that the If anything you know it was more like this week. Rail that we that we see I into Saturday and at this point I wasn't one hundred percent there but I was getting there by later on in the day. I knew that at the that you wanna you WanNa be right pinned on the rail you know. I'd be end of but certainly by the end of Saturday but but I also so don't think it was a huge factor. I think it was Pretty difficult you know to to follow that. I mean it's easier. In retrospect. Ah come up with that solution. I'm I'm pretty solid on it now. I you know. My brother probably scoffed at me. A little bit on on a few things but you know But that he agreed with me. I'm pretty sure of what of what you know what it is now but but as far as going from race the race was very well on Saturday. The first the first Breeders Cup turf race of course is the sprint. And whether you were sprinting. Or whether you were going long you you you you have to keep in touch with the with the front end then. Of course the two sprints ended up being wired jobs the juvenile sprint on the juvenile sprint on Friday. And then the you know. The elders on Saturday and here is a race that that Peter Miller is clearly on an annual basis picking out horses. I mean stormy liberal of course for two years in a row by basically cultivating the horses from the shadow that might be logical for this and I he's just he's just terrific doing this and Belvoir Bay. There were plenty of people who were smart including Mark Mark Assertion on Wednesday night at the turf writers dinner and we were going through races. Marcus says belvoir Bays GonNa wire that field and gosh was he right. Personally I made. I made one good choice in this race. One choice because I was on some kind of podcast. a Three weeks out and I said that I like to own in in the race. You know they and we didn't even know post position revealing who's going to be in the race it time and then when Eh drew post eleven I was I was you know understandably upset about going with them but I actually made a good move in and stuck with them and not and not worried about the post and figured that he would show more speed. Unfortunately I didn't make the right conclusion. That the twelve could actually clear. I think it's the this this one is really a red board retrospect that you know Good pick by Marcus but You know we got lucky. That pure sensation broke bad. You know I it would have been a totally different racist if he if he didn't I guess you could. You could go with the idea that maybe person station would. Not You know might have problems with the gate when California. You'd have to be really good to meet to come up with that theory but but even so I think they'll it probably would have been in it the way she ran even if he did break though. I I do think there might a one if it especially if the two Hooked up right from the get-go 'cause excursion station ran well. After he broke back he he he did run good so it would have been a different race. Unfortunately I didn't see that that possibility for her clear. And I thought there'd be you know with a phone rates with like you said with the horse going to wear yesterday speed. I thought by some of these other horses. Even though there were no rockets in there we talked about that. There was no rockets in that race. I thought that you know some of these five for a long sprint type. Forces can show speed..

"We're back at the races I just I just saw traumatises tweet trumpeting. His his visit he. He says that I've bumped him twice. I think only really once I think just one other time was was. There was some question whether whether the timing was gonNA work but either way it's one of the most anticipated separated conversations after Breeders Cup the Paul Matisse Postmortem and getting into all the vets that work the vets. That didn't didn't what we were right about. What was unexpected? Go morning on the that. You're finally want let me out beyond California and you hang around with those movie stars and you've had the great gambler philosopher only the battler says. You've you've changed if I'd really changed I would've I would've stayed out there because I do love. I do love being out there and this this series of races Paul it always. It's always dissipated disappinted. And some of the best typically some of the best betting opportunities of the year but one observation. The came up. The last couple of days is is that the money was pretty smart about a lot of a lot of horses and that included Bella Fina and without parole role. I mean not necessarily winners but horses that that were bet and ended up running well first before we talk specific races. What was your overall impressions Russians? Well that's one of the overall impressions I had was that even though we've heard that the The horses didn't handle the the tracking and whatever the the you know the force of the highest figures fared pretty well and you know for the most part form held up pretty good. You know a couple of horses you mentioned there. We live in a different world. You know with Workout reports and and such. I would add spun. The run probably a little bit to that category too. You know the You know we have better information. I mean a horse like Without Parole The the Chad Brown horse you know all every these workout people were on top of the fact that he was working working with bricks and mortar you know and add holdings beating them actually beating them and you know and you can watch it to you know we have. XP TV TV which is a an incredible service. I know we probably are a little jaded and take it for granted nowadays but you know this stuff was is unheard of not even that long ago so so you gotta expect a little bit changes where the money is going to be. The money is going to be better. You know we're doing on an everyday basis. The money's better that's a great point that's a great point and I I would also include the understanding that is certain horses says aren't working at as well as might have been anticipated and people. I see people that are dismissive of the workout information. And they say well everyb- everybody's working good. Everybody is working well L. enough summer working significantly better or noticeably just a little less and that might be enough differential when you're building tickets other. You know the other thing where we we. Don't get to see the horses as much you know work out with you and I've talked about this before. Workouts are more important now. Because was it used to be you. You saw the horse run two weeks ago so he didn't care about how he trained. You know. I mean if you watch the Seattle flu win the you know the the Marlboro you don't worry about how he's training into the Jockey Club. It was only twelve days ago. You know fourteen days ago You know it's different now. I mean a lot of these sorts of hadn't run since some of them hadn't runs in Saratoga or Delamarre so you have to You know you're you're look it. You're you're looking at a completely different horse in some cases so you need you need that kind of information you know and you trust especially especially that the the crackers. A- ah they'll probably on some you know on this on a daily basis the clocking information we get should be better but when it comes to the good horses did you know you. You can't fault it. I mean it's incredible my favorite part of for the invariably. Is You know it was with the young horses purses and on an everyday basis on the first years and then when you combine for you know for me to try to sniff out a price thing about Saratoga season for for instance in del Mar it helps to see an obscure horse. That may come from less high profile L. connections that's working well and then when I see that combines with positive sibling Information is that you know that were precocious and and one early. That's for me. That's a the go-to and that's where I find that. It really helpful on a day in day out basis. I I gotTA bring up before. We talk about the series of of races. A Friday and Saturday that comprise the Fourteen Cup events. There was a horse each day. Paul Friday and Saturday that if you played the early pick five and the early pick for that absolutely absolutely would have made your Breeders Cup. That was Mo- fours of course on Saturday Berry Irwin Barrier Berry Abrahams and Doc Peter Miller. That was eight thousand nine hundred ninety one and then there was the Bondi horse on Friday. That Rick Hammersley gave everybody and I and I left off the ticket tap back at fourteen to one and so if you sniff out those two horses either day you were off to a big star. Well I didn't I didn't Tap back got me pretty good on Friday at the race that I did that. I missed and and and I don't know if you if you you probably know on Friday and Thursday night early Friday morning most togas power was out so Friday was the oh no I was out of. You Know I. I had to leave my house because I didn't. I couldn't see the races on Friday so I I didn't didn't get power back until Friday night but So Friday was a little bit of a tough thing. I never would have been able to add. Probably somebody texted me and said Tapa back one. If they it came back from the future is still probably wouldn't. I probably wouldn't got the message even though I really can't complain about that when he was he was a hardcore door savvy he you know he he definitely ran Iran much better. I guess the one thing you could say that race is that that it was it. was there for the taking it. Wasn't it wasn't a great face. It was a very weak. We grace and it was a hard race to figure. I just I never I never would have come up with him on the on Saturday. I actually think the horse that the other race that's going to be important on. The undercard is the flagstaff rate. And I you know I singled him pick five and me too I I use bury a little bit With most whereas even though that wasn't a great result for me but Later on I didn't have I needed home in her in the In the last leg but Flagstaff is GonNa be interesting race. We probably won't get to it later on so you know. The the time that race was was I wanted to mention that the the time of that race was basically the same as Kofi and for whatever reason some of the places that I've seen have already projected that figure down but I I think that's a huge mistake and I would really take notice of the two three year olds. Who wrote ran behind flagstaff? Coming forward They they they definitely improved without many people noticing. Though I think Bob Baffert already had made a comment about roads how happy was with them roadster. We're in the Mandela horse. Extra hope ultrasounds ran really well and are going to be a factor probably next year especially in the early part of next year in California. That's a that's a terrific side bar and you would think that given the distance they'll both be pointing for the Malibu. Yeah I would I would thinks thanks over. The the great thing about bolt sources can definitely go along. Yeah so if they if they go a different direction I may not be great for us if they all end up in the same in the same race. You know but we'll see how things play out there. They're definitely to definitely keep your eyes on point well taken and flagstaff lack staff buy out by every measure on figs. I mean it was a was a single in a stand out and it was weird though that in the early wagering Who was roadster that? That was an early favourite in a strong early favourite before very slowly and steadily flagstaff. Came down to even money and roadster off just a tick under under three to to like you started off with somebody in somebody in those camps must have thought that they that they both have improved. You know that's a general rules about this time of year that I start. I always give Three year old the second look you know and Not just for not not just for stake races but this race is I think in general handicapping when it gets this time of year. Lots of lots of three year olds make big jumps forward. And you know I'd I would I'd that some of my better handicapping at the end of the year I think going forward people should be looking at you. Know is there is a tip off that the sources has gone before no it you know and those to be coming but you know. I think it's a good lesson. You know for racing. We're hearing that extra hope Already will point. For long races Eric Lawson weighing in and I appreciate that would make sense for Samantha. SEGEL's in fact Samantha. The made that race go. I saw her earlier in the week. And we were talking about I said hey you're running this weekend. And she said well extra hopes going to go in the Damascus. Yes and I think they kind of hustle doesn't and we made the race go so that was There's I'd be faded about how he how he ran. I'm sure they are to to keep you ran real well. Well actually. I know it's I know it's turf but I'm just looking down. I forgot what kind of a number Mo four zero came back with. What a ninety six I think he just he just went forward as well? You know again another. I think he was free as well. I guess you could have predicted that it was a you know. It's a lot of red boarding to do that but You know we needed to go forward to win but He kind of figured to get the the trip that he did. So and the three year old forces If you've read any my tweet issue there. They've been hungry bunch you know now so you know looking for an outsider in that race probably made sense but That was a that was a tough race but one that'll work like that could certainly went. Well well I can tell you that. What one thing? I was so happy for Berry Berry Abrahams. who was such a special moment and of course Rosario part of that story but I had sniffed out succeed in surpass? Who I ki- I you find? I like that at eight to ten to one and you think you got something and then I was is like Oh yeah not gonNA catch. He's not gonNA catch him today. Quote Unquote so that got the under since we since we're very very very Very trained for my brother Myself For since for.

"But i but i didn't like his odds for winning and going into the race. I wasn't one hundred percent what was going to happen with the blinkers on you know so it was a little bit of a question mark there to take a what did he end up eight to five. I know he went nine to five right before it <hes> <hes> he ended up. He ended up at appropriate a one. Oh yeah absolutely ended up at two forty so i mean at that price. I guess it was he he wasn't there. I was worried when he went nine to five that he was going to work <hes> but i did it the exact i thought they were. I thought it was the other way around. I tried to get bombs in the gimmicks and fail you know behind him. That was kind of my strategy of the race. Try to get to to make any money you know. I'm always looking at that type of type away and i thought there was some interesting horses that maybe couldn't win but maybe could run second third or fourth and unfortunately fortunately i was wrong. The <hes> gustav got into a good spot. He's he's a pretty good horse. I don't think he's he didn't surprise me that he ran. The ray said he did that either. You know i think the race was very but with the fact that would take the the point of showed so much speed and the way he was ridden otherwise the actual result isn't all that <hes> surprising to me the going in. I mean you could see what happened. I do think code of honor in this race got a good setup. I heard some stuff that maybe he overcame anything. I don't believe that i think he he got the s. Trip out of all the contenders would that being said. He beat them fair and square. He beat them pretty soundly. I don't know exactly how good you know the thing. That's interesting to me about these free year. Olds is that this year we've had a lot of after the derby and even beforehand or hand you know what it gets the modern day year tentative schedules with these three year old and they've all come along and they're all pretty good. You know nobody's had his breakout. I mean i was looking at it last night. You know being prepared for you. Know talking to you a lot of these three year. Olds are running. The same exact that figures to me was going to be really interesting going forward now. I think it's a good thing that maybe this year. There isn't a gun runner where the three year olds. Maybe maybe go against each other and we could have some great races. This would be a rare case where the where the <hes> the breeders cup derby actually would be <hes> very highly anticipated so stop. Stop stop that. Stop that because i mean we have three everywhere that soot and the obey. You're not yet anyway. I think when you've got so many of them are good. Somebody who's gonna is going to take that next step. You know it's going to be really interesting to see you know which one it is but <hes>. I don't think that these two are separated themselves from other sources. I don't think there well all right. These are the clearly the best to the in thrilled circuit but these are the tourist tours the i don't see that i think it's very good horses. There's they have both have upside. I think i don't i'm not sure we've seen the best of them so i think taxes might have more upside than code. I just get the feeling he hasn't figured out exactly how to run where code of honor i think he's got it down. You know he's he's good orbiting in. You're seeing what you know what he's got. You know chug chug train them. <hes> you know as everybody said he you know in certain technical job training them to the racist but i think it's what you see is what you get. He could go.

"What a important win win for for him when it came to code of honor and the travers get an american. I mean this is. It's a quasi classic mile quarter this time of year and we talked on monday was sug- about <hes> we really didn't get in other than and other than to reference the slight the slight amusement that sugar had it receiving a noble mission and he said what is sending me this for sending me an old mission well. He's made the most of it and i am not to mention the fact that the colt made made late late late may fall and for him to do what he's done already kind of exceeded some expectation. I imagine there's said fernando joining us sire watch pedder refocus brought to you by hill and dale save good morning morning said he first before we talk about noble mission and what this means for for him and for his prospects ex <hes> going into next season but your overall impressions of the race <hes> it was <hes> i get something every we touched upon several of these voices the week before you know kind of an open race and <hes> i guess i was the most surprised that <hes> you know maybe i shouldn't have been the gary speed of facets <hes> which is kinda surprising you know he's a horse that it should eventually get a grade one race and he's on his resume and each potential standing for who are jet mont but the rates really set up for <hes> double mission seen mike got out of part of the track easily anyway was playing <hes> really well and getting why he's yeah great words are just kind of confirming you pointed out to delay foale joy align confirming last year rates to those always a worthy winner i and in a lot of ways is it just a display of sheds just tremendous mendes management of of a horse and you that that to me knowing for starters i mean the the way in which he broke out as a two year old and you didn't necessarily you know we are pointing pointing out that he was a may foale and and physically in terms of age younger than anybody in the field and all that and really younger than any of the prominent members members of the crop however he broke his maiden august eighteenth that last year as a two year old they did at first asking going six furlongs and ito given the way shook trains and given that pedigree you really wouldn't you wouldn't necessarily expect him to be successful. I mean a lot of times that quickly <hes> because notably we've talked about this with him for years said when he's got a precocious horse with some speed.

"Hi, mattie. Welcome to the Stockholm school of economics. One meets a lot of people who may be have started off running a company sort of on the side. And once that businesses up and running then they take a leave of absence. That's very common. Among entrepreneurs, particularly highly skilled entrepreneurs who go into high tech firms and build high tech firms. What does this right offer people in Sweden won't to become entrepreneurs that they just wouldn't get in other countries to my knowledge. This is the only country that offers a legally enshrined right to take a leave of absence for entrepreneurship. So I think one has to zoom out a little bit. And look at the Swedish labour market and observe that it is actually seen as a source of security to have a permanent job because it is so difficult to fire someone once they've been hired. So for many Swedes giving up a job completely to pursue some. Thing uncertain and insecure like entrepreneurship must be very very difficult, and allowing for this leave of absence means they can have the best of both worlds. I'm now on my way to meet Samuel England head of policy for the Swedish confederation for professional employees to find out if the right to unpaid leave his any challenges to the Swedish labour market. Well, for the employer, of course, the risk that you will lose an employee that you value, very highly. And especially situations.
