"Another woke struggle session this one out of ESPN. Apparently from comment in 2020 and the New York Times reported As the NBA playoffs started in May, the Stars of ESPN's marquee basketball NBA countdown discussed what they refused to appear on it. They're objecting to a production edict from executives that they believed was issued to benefit a sideline reporter and fellow star Rachel Nichols. Despite comments she had made, suggesting that the host of NBA countdown Maria Taylor had gotten that job because she's black. Nichols is white. Pretty sure call with Taylor and the other commentators. Jalen Rose, Adrian Watch Hrabowski and Jay Williams, as well as NBA countdown staff members had turned acrimonious, and Jimmy Petero, ESPN's president, had several phone conversations while at a family event helped try to smooth things over. Some of those involved saw the initial maneuvering as a sign of network favoring Nichols. Despite the backdrop of criticism from employees who complained that the sports network has long mishandled problems with racism. It had declined to discipline Nichols despite fury throughout the company over her remark. Which she made during a phone conversation nearly a year ago after learning she would not host coverage during the 2020 NBA finals and she had been expecting. Here's what she said quote. Wish Maria Taylor all the success in the world. She covers football. She covers basketball, Nicholls said. If you need to give her more things to do, because you are feeling pressure about your crappy, long time, record and diversity, which, by the way, I know personally from the female side of it, like, go for it. Just find it somewhere else. You're not gonna find it from me or taking my thing away. So I have a question. What did you say? That's wrong? Was it? Was it wrong because she was somehow suggesting it was caught in a live mic, suggesting that her job was being taken away from her because she's the wrong color. Is that Is that the thing that she said that that requires dramatic apology because my understanding that Rachel Nichols had been assigned to the NBA Finals, like for years and years and years, and now she is being removed in favor of Maria Taylor. That's wrong for her to suspect that at all, even though ESPN is beginning tremendous internal pressure. And more than that. We are now living in a situation in which she said it on a mic not live on air publicly, but she was on a mic for her network, and they somehow got around at the network. Number one fire the sound guy like seriously. Whoever made a recording of that and decided to distribute that fire that person because, realistically speaking as a person who works on the show all day long, I got to my gone all the time, and I say stuff off the air. If somebody were to record what I say off the air, and then and then you start distributing it. That person gets fired and sued. Right? Apparently, that is not the way that it works over at ESPN. Whether or not ESPN and Taylor agree on a contract, internal damage from the passenger has been substantial. Apparently more than a dozen current and former ESPN employees have been speaking to The New York Times. By the way, this is how woke employees take control of companies just pick up the phone number of the New York Times employee call them up and start whining about all the internal deliberations at ESPN and ESPN caves. It's that simple. Again. We're somebody from my company to call up The New York Times and start leaking internal information in violation of contract they would find themselves on the breadline immediately. That is a violation of contract. Apparently, that's not the way it works at the world Corporations anymore. In mid July, Nichols was staying at the Coronado Springs Resort, while Disney World in Orlando, Florida. She had with her video camera so she could continue appearing on ESPN shows primarily the jump, a daily NBA show She's hosted since 2016, but she was eyeing hosting duties for ESPN's pregame and postgame shows during the playoffs and finals. That host is the face of ESPN NBA coverage before the pandemic. She and Taylor hosted different versions of the show. About the time Nichols arrived in Florida, she was told by executives Taylor would host coverage during the NBA Finals. Nichols discussed her career on a phone call on July 13 2020 with Adam Mendelssohn, longtime adviser for LeBron James and James. Asian Rich, Paul Nichols was speaking with Mendelssohn to request an interview with James and also Anthony Davis. During the conversation. She also sought advice from Mendelssohn because she believed her bosses were advancing Taylor at her expense. She says. I just want them to go somewhere else. It's in my contract. By the way, this job is in my writing is in my contract in writing, referring to hosting coverage during the finals. Okay, so They broke her contract to move her off a job without explaining why she suspected it might be affirmative action, and this has caused a massive uproar at ESPN. Dozens of ESPN employees have access to the company's video servers as part of their normal workflow. At least one of those people watch the day on the server, recorded it on a cell phone and share it with others. Soon more copies. The conversations are spreading around ESPN. Within hours it reached ESPN executives, in part because of some of the comments from Mendelssohn. Is a prominent political and communications strategist. Let's work for the giant private equity firm TPG. He's a founder of James's voting rights group, more than a vote. Mendelson said. I don't know. I'm exhausted between me too. And black lives matter. I got nothing left. Nichols left. How dare they? Also, Mendelson said, You should be careful at ESPN because they're a snake pit..

But in order to do that, I had to understand where this belief came from who started it. And what was this town anyway? Man who started California City was named Nat Mendelssohn. Now Mendelssohn was a real estate developer who's 60 years ago decided to build a city from scratch in the Mojave Desert. What were his intentions? Was he really trying to build a city or was he just trying to make as much money as possible? Intention matters. Intention. This professional poker player once told me is really the only difference between a dreamer and a con artist. And when someone is dead like that, Mendelssohn is, it could be a really hard to figure out what his intentions really Woz. I realized I had to talk to the people who knew him well, but that made things even more complicated because talking to them made me realize that there are so many versions of not Mendelssohn. By all accounts, Nat was whatever you needed him to be. There was not the prophet Nat believed with all his heart that God gave him the vision for the city. There was not the dad. I remember calling him up and asking him if I could call him, Daddy. There was not the founding father. He was a dreamer. He made dreamers of us all In the beginning, he let our torch and there was not the scoundrel. If you profit at the expense of people who are being duped. Then your evil literally.

Antonio Vivaldi 3: Violin Concertos Through the Ages

"Some people love to show off or perform in front of other people. A concerto is a piece of music. Which one or more solo instruments get to show off in front of a larger group of instruments and also in front of an audience? The starring instrument in Vivaldi's Four Seasons concertos is the violin. The violin was invented over a hundred years before Vivaldi came along but not the concerto concertos for Solo instruments were born in Italy in the late. Sixteen hundreds soon composers in other countries wanted to write concertos in the Italian style. Johann Sebastian Bach Pot himself to compose concertos by copying out the Valdis music as he copied out the parts box. Study what he had done and how he had done it based on that. Bach wrote his own concertos for most of his life. Franz-josef Haydn held a job that involved composing music for the Court Orchestra that he conducted in Haydn's Day conductors didn't stand in front of the orchestra waving their arms. The way they do today back then. The head Honcho violinist or concert master. Who is a member of the orchestra was also the conductor so heighten was also a very good violinist and wrote concertos for his instrument by the Time Felix? Mendelssohn came along. The conductor of an orchestra didn't play in it anymore. When Mendelssohn became conductor of one of the best orchestras in Europe. He hired his good friend segment. Davi to be the concert master head. Honcho violinist then. Mendelssohn wrote a concerto for his friend to play. Mimbo Cement Dhabi also helped popularize an earlier violin concerto. One by Ludwig van Beethoven Beethoven's Concerto never caught on during his lifetime which may have been because at the first performance of the piece. The violinist hadn't bothered to learn his music. He was sight reading seeing the music. For the first time. Which you're not supposed to do in concert. People don't sight read Beethoven's Concerto in performance anymore some violin concertos got labeled unplayable. Because they haven't found the right violinists to play them. The first violinist Tchaykovsky asked to perform his Concerto. Said it couldn't be done turns out he was thrown. It makes sense that the history of Violin concertos follows. The history of great violinists Joseph. Yokneam was the greatest violinist in Europe in the last half of the nineteenth century was happy to give advice on how to get around the violin to composers. Who wanted to write concertos for him? Like Max Bro. Up until recently most great violinists also wrote concertos for themselves to play. Not many of them do that anymore today. But Mark O'connor does you can definitely hear bits of folk music which is what. Mark O'Connor grew up playing in the PC calls his fiddle concerto. Fiddle is what folk and country musicians call the

Johann Sebastian Bach 1: About Johann Sebastian Bach

"One of your parents doctor or lawyer and maybe as far back as they can remember everyone in their family has gone into the same profession while that's how it was with the Bach family all of them were musicians Johann. That's German for John. Sebastian Bach was born in sixteen eighty. Five in the German town of is enough. His father was the official town musician. There by the time was ten. Both his parents had died so he went to live with his older brother. Who was also a musician? Of course Johann Sebastian. Bach turned out to have very fleet fingers. He played a mean violin and by the time he was eighteen. He had a job as an organist. Bach held three main jobs over the course of his life. You can tell where he was working by. What kind of music? He wrote the first box. Big Jobs was official. Court organist for the Duke of Weimar so a lot of box great organ. Music comes from early on in his career. That Weimar job also had box serving as concert master. The head Honcho violinist of the Duke's orchestra when the Duke of Weimar decided not to make him conductor of the Orchestra. Bach was pretty unhappy. Then a visiting prince offered a job directing his orchestra but when Bach tried to quit his job in Weimar. The dukes said no way he even threw in jail for a month to try and make its point but it didn't work when Bach got out of jail. He headed straight to the town of curtain to work for the prince the prince had a wonderful orchestra so Bach wrote lots of instrumental music. While he was in curtain eventually balk moved onto his last job at the Saint. Thomas Lutheran Church. In the city of Leipzig. His title was cantor. That's what they called the choir and music director and it was a huge job box trained singers organized music for several churches in town and for the University of Leipzig and he composed new music every week for services at the Saint Thomas Church most of Bach's great choral music was written in Leipzig the choir at the Saint Thomas. Church still performs box music every week. One of the coolest things I ever got to do was sit in the church where Bach worked and listen to the choir sing. His music while Bach was alive. No one outside the towns in Germany where he worked had heard of him and people thought of him as just another working musician after he died people pretty much forgot about him until a century later when another composer Felix Mendelssohn dug out some of Bach's music and performed it after that the whole world recognized what a genius had been and Faulk may even be recognized beyond this world in nineteen seventy seven scientists sent the unmanned voyager spacecraft off to explore the galaxy. They put examples of the best that planet Earth had to offer on board and one of those examples was a recording of Johann Sebastian box. Brandenburg Concerto number.

Gioachino Rossini 3: Overtures

"Hello welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Win. Overture comes from the French word for opening vow to. That's what they called the piece of music that opened ballets and operas in Seventeenth Century France. After French overtures became popular all over Europe non-french composers started pending the name overture onto larger pieces of music those overtures or sweets as we now call them consisted of alternating fast and slow sections but they always started off with an overture in the French style. A slow introduction followed by lively second section today the kind of overture we know best is the dramatic overture a piece of music. That gets you ready for a stage. Work that follows sometimes. Those overtures consists of a bunch of hit tunes. That work like the overture to Jacques Oven. Box Operetta the Grand Duchess of Charleston. Dramatic go all the way back to the days when trumpets announced that some royal entertainment was about to start. That's the opening to one of the earliest opera ever written or fail by Claudio Monteverdi. Good overtures really. Get you in the mood for what's coming up for instance you can tell from the very first note that something serious is going to happen in. Mozart's Don Giovanni overtures set the stage for plays to Egg Mont by Gooda is obviously a tragedy as you can hear from the overture that Beethoven wrote for it but when you hear the overture Felix Mendelssohn composed for Shakespeare. Play a midsummer night's dream. You know it's a comedy. Actually Mendelssohn didn't originally right. His overture for production of the play. His midsummer night's dream is yet another kind of overture. A concert overture as the name says it's meant to be performed on a concert and doesn't have to have anything to do with anything. Theatrical lots of times when composers were asked to provide music for a special occasion. They'd write a concert overture. So that people who were sitting for a long time at some ceremony didn't have to sit through a long piece too when you're honest. Brahms composed music for the ceremony at which he got an honorary university degree. He made all the students happy by putting their favourite drinking songs into his academic festival. Overture lots of concert. Overtures were intended for patriotic purposes. Like the one Tchaikovsky wrote for the dedication of a church in Moscow. Tchaikovsky used that occasion to celebrate Russia's defeat of Napoleon in eighteen twelve tchaykovsky certainly knew how to put a rousing end to an overture and of course Soda Gioacchino Rossini. With one he wrote for his Opera William. Tell one of the things where Seaney put into his William Tell. Overture was a musical thunderstorm

How NBA commissioner David Stern helped shape the league

"This is a very sad day for the NBA For anybody associated with the League I think for anybody who is a fan of this league fan of the game. Ah Game of basketball period Here or anywhere around the world because David Stern was. I don't WanNa say singularly but certainly of very much responsible for everybody around the world Loving and appreciating this game being able to see this game the expansion of this game and David Stern of of course is No longer with US and Kind of knew this day was coming a few weeks ago when we got the news that he had suffered a brain hemorrhage throughout all of that I kind of stubbornly Felt like this is David Stern. He'll come out of it. I can't imagine I I can't imagine the League has already you've been without him. I can't imagine the world without David Stern and I'm still not sure how to process that. But I did know that when the moment came to have a podcast to discuss thus David stearns legacy and all the complexities of the man That the first person I would wanNA talk to the person sitting across from me in the studio right now. That's my good. The friend former colleague at the New York Times and of course hall of Famer Basketball Hall of Famer Harvey Aronson. Thank you for being good to be here good to be here solemn occasion I I agree and But it's good to be here. Thank you this is. This is tough so we were talking about this a little bit before we started recording and as I just said I can't imagine it's just the the idea that David Stern would Just that he's that he's not among still. There are certain people who you have in such high regard who are such titans titans who are such just just giants of their field or of the world at large that I feel like they're almost unkillable. David Stern like I would not bet on the David Stern versus death. I'm betting on David. Stern like literally going to punch death in the face and said get the fuck Outta here. I ain't ready yet and I I truly I believe these last few weeks ever since the news of the brain hemorrhage that he was going to rally because he is he's as we know he's a fighter and he's stubborn as hell and I figured that would be That would apply across the board and Yeah I still. I still can't quite believe he's gone. You have known him much longer than I have starting in late Seventies. He made his presence felt he was. He was lead counsel will when he came over from his law firm. Proske our rose in these four. Names and FRESCA Rosen Mendelssohn. I always forget the third one pro scour they always I was just called but he made his presence felt around the league and particularly with the media long before he became deputy commissioner in the early eighties and then commissioner in Nineteen Ninety Four. And you know I always found it interesting especially as we went on into the ninety s and into the new century that people looked at the NBA. And they would say you know. David Stern became commissioner. Larry Bird and Magic Magic Johnson entered the League one thousand nine hundred nineteen eighty season and it was a rocket to the moon right from there. And you know it's just a revisionist sense of history because David did not become commissioner until Nineteen eighty-four and bird and magic. Were already in the League. For four years the league was still a very troubled entity. You know almost you know almost a half decade into the bird magic era. There are a lot of issues. There were teams that were said to be on the verge of close of folding there was no salary cap op. There was no drug testing drug plan. A lot didn't happen until David actually became commissioner but those of us who cover the league regularly knew to him and I knew him I knew him from being around but I got my first as we all know our first David Stern phone call. Aw when I was working at the New York Post and I want to say it was probably around. Nineteen eighty one. Maybe and. He's he's Deputy Commissioner Deputy Commissioner or just about to become deputy commissioner and I I had decided as the Knicks beat writer that I was going to befriend Larry Fleisher. Who is the director of the Players Association and fancied myself as pro-labor Grew up in a labor union household and I was going to side with the players before for even knew anything right so I actually let turned over. My story wasn't a column. I think it was a story. Larry Fleisher who proposed doing away with the entire entire NBA draft. Why do we need to draft right? And I'm like you know that makes that makes a lot of sense to me so I write this evolutionary even now much less and you know for several years I kind of win alone and you can kind of make an argument for it. You know. Sort of a free enterprise system right but I wrote the story and David Stern and get a call the next day from Secretary and I pick up the phone and like I said I probably met him three or four or five times and and I answered the phone and he said he gets on and he goes this harvey and I said yes and he goes. I'm going to educate to. I'm going to educate you you for a few minutes. You fucking idiot and we went from there you know. He was merciless but yet always I pulled it back just enough to make you know that you know there's a possibility of lack of actual relationship here. But that was my first recollection of my have of my first. I Real David Stern W up and renew phone call and we all got those. I considered it. I don't know what point I realized is. This was the badge of honor. But this is a badge of honor. And it's funny harvey when we just seeing all the twitter tributes reading everybody's calms the last twenty four hours and we all have as as journalists. Cover this league so much. The same story these very very similar stories of our relationships with David these kind of love hate push rush poll frienemie type relationships where he was both In some ways mentor and Educator especially for you and Ah David our little closer in age so for some of us who came up and he was already well established as the commissioner for a long time before I come into the League or others is that WHO's pieces of red. He's very much kind of almost father figure and besides that he's the keeper of of all the NBA's history and secrets secrets and everything. So he did he would take on this role of like I want to educate. It's funny that he's saying this to you who was basically his almost pure at that point of. He's still doing his job job. He's not even commissioner yet and and you're covering the league but like that's just who he was I guess from the beginning and it certainly is the experience that I had with him and we all yes at some point. Got f-bomb to desk us. I'm glad we can curse on my podcast because David Stern wouldn't have wanted it any other way than for us to say fuck a few times because it was certainly one of his favorite words I I do think that it was probably very different to work for David. I mean reading a lot of the posts today on facebook and twitter twitter from people like Terry Lions and who's part of the communication staff for many years You know saying things like you know you you you didn't arrive at the NBA. Until David Curse you out in for doing something or doing something wrong and our cases I think it was a different different dynamic because to certain extent we did hold some leverage in power. David was marketing his league and it was important Kim particularly in the early years. You know to get the kind of press that he wanted for the sport and the kind of coverage for the athletes. He was trying to sell. So I think to a certain to a certain extent that you know that pullback from the total annihilation that David was capable of was inevitable because he wanted to Always maintain that relationship I remember in one of the Ninety S lockouts. He had a press conference was an update In the middle of lockout and the Times who's had a sign just kind of out of the Blue Murray Chasse who was a chroma generally baseball writer writer and columnist to cover the NBA lockout and Murray was long known to be essentially an ally of the Baseball Writers Association Association. I mean practically slept with ball them going too far but with G.. Those guys I mean it was. He was clearly pro row union in just about everything he wrote and Murray had written a series of articles for the Times that were clearly anti-star anti league and supporting the players. And I remember I was talking to David but after the press conference and Joel Lipman one of the attorneys attorneys with standing nearby and David started to say something to me. That sounded like you know one of these. I'm going to tell you in confidence. You know what's really going on. And y'all grabbed him by the arm and said David David Wait. Wait wait and David turned around and looked at Joel and said this is not Murray. Hey this is harvey and implicit in that or not. So implicit was the notion that I'm on their side. Not that I'm always going to write it the way they want want. I'm one of the regulars. There was a real difference if you one of the regular news who covered that sport and he kind of understood because I I will say this. We all WANNA be impartial. You'll want to write what we think. But it's particularly in the early eighties. Through the the end of that decade as League began to push more and more higher and higher and out of that ditch that it was in you know in the late seventies that all of us who covered the league felt a real pride that we were part of something that was growing. That was something special and David Sense that in all of us I could name you know whether there is Bob Ryan Alien Verizon you know Jan Hubbard Jack McCallum. I think it was. I think he looked at us. Not Addis he's guys or his writer so we're going to. You know who are going to adhere to is disciplined. Alright well what he wanted to but ultimately that we were pro. NBA Hey we believed in the product and we loved it we love the sport and believe in it and that was the difference. I think some of that changed in the later years when he felt this. There was some people coming along. Who are sort of interlopers? Who didn't necessarily have the League's best interest at heart? You know it's interesting too because you're describing you know a- and a general atmosphere in terms of the media and the sports world in general that that I think maybe a lot of my listeners or a lot of fans today probably don't have a true understanding of just because it was a very different world back then basketball was a distant third at best and you know baseball was still the national pastime and football was already a Bima and the NBA. You know forget whether the teams that were possibly going to fold in in the early eighties. When David I took over as commissioner it just the sport as a whole just didn't have the foothold in the capture of the of the collective the public's imagination that it has today this sport is a global a phenomenon of its own and that wasn't the case back then so it was probably really important and earlier on for David to to be able to identify that right? That's a that those of you covered league on a regular basis. Did so because you believed in basketball and believe in the NBA is a sport that that it wasn't just this little niche sport in America that would forever be overshadowed by football and baseball that it was that it had its own distinct identity in promise and and could be on on equal footing with those sports. I mean today. We don't have that discussion that the NBA is here and it is huge and it is to be reckoned with maybe the predictions of overtaking the NFL were a little premature but the NBA. It's I think people today might take for granted not realizing ising how far it had to come and so I think probably did shape a lot of how David saw the coverage and why he was so protective of it and when you talk about or any of US talk about David Redeeming us out and dropping dropping f bombs and whatever else. It's not because it was ever personal and it's not because we had fucked up that badly. Although occasionally we might have. David was just very protective protective of an advocate fierce advocate for his league. And so that's why I didn't mind badge of honor thing is like I kind of understood where he was coming from after awhile now cinder understood that if I pushed back and held my ground and especially if I did have a solid ground extent.

Part 3: Jeff Siegel, Ed DeRosa, James Scully

"Jeff Good Morning Good morning how you doing excellent and lots to digest. We've already talked to the J ribbon earlier this morning morning. I want to get your take on what went on about the racist we discussed last week including the the upset which I think is less shocking talking than people. The people are are feeling. It didn't seem upon further review that Mongolian groom was all that impossible well. He wants to me I mean I thought he'd run well but I I really I'd watch McKinsey working. I thought he was ready to roll. Oh and just looking at the form I thought that he would win and he he moved to the top of the stretch like he was going to pounce and then he kind of flat out and I I always had a little sense of doubt that maybe he wasn't quite amount of quarterhorse but this is only a mile and they and I was disappointed and I think Bob Baffert with two do I really was an he's made in announcement that he's going to replace my Smith with a writer that we don't know who's going to be. I'm sure all the the agents are kind of hanging around trying to throw their hat in the ring but yeah I mean I it was I mean it's it's just it's the nature of the game here. We've you see this happen a lot and perhaps the real the real important racist coming up a month from now but if you've you know food for thought as to whether or not the horse that we also at least I thought was the number one older horse in the country. is really that much better than everybody else and amount of quarter. I think it's anybody's game now fold in as well the the result at the Jockey Club Gold Cup and what did you think of the takedown and who do you favor of the two of them coming out west well. I'll tell you what that I I was kind of hoping that it didn't come down and even I thought the three year old is going to win the race going in and what am I ran well. I thought he I thought he had every chance to get by but it was a tough. It's tough to lose a race lightweight like way when push came to shove and unfortunately for her also did come to push he he hung in there I think both both of those are deserving the universal. I'd come already come out west a winner racer over the summer so we subtract and so they'll meet again it's I I. I was talking about this. The other day was Zoe on our podcast and we we were pretty much not baffled. I don't think that's the way but kind of open to in trying to figure out who might win the plastic doors so many possibilities now so many horses that look like they're capable title stepping up some of them that look good or maybe vulnerable so I duNNo. We'll be watching the next couple of three weeks to see who trains the best. Maybe maybe we can come up with a conclusion but right now now. It's really a mess we'll wait till they get the decisions. The final decisions horses like a late and late would add another wrinkle visit I think they're thinking mile and a quarter and the boys aren't that top much tougher for maybe the midnight DC would be if he ran against her again and and a mile an eighth in the in the the staff so that would that would certainly make an interesting well a couple of other thoughts jeff about last weekend the reasons we discussed filled D'Amato just a of magical a couple of days pee wee reese on Friday mirth and Cleopatra Strike in the Rodeo drive and the John Henry able to Geo Story. I keep coming back to it because what can you say and then Sunday Paradise Woods and I ask you the same question that I brought up up with Jay and I asked Sadler too Sadler Sheriff's the other day if she runs that race of the distaff she's she's a major major player and I know she's a notorious in and outer but I thought that was a terrific effort it was it was accomplished under under pristine conditions sitting right outside a speed horse with nobody all rounder nobody in front of her nobody beside her with kind of like a workout for but she did feel the deal as she finished strongly and she earned a beyer speed figure that was something like eight or nine points better than they were not that that means anything but bottom line is she ran really well now whether or not she can do that again I don't know if he pointed out not exactly your model of consistency and I thought maybe your best days were behind her but boy did she work well and I I I yeah I mean you have to go. You have to think that going into the dispatch. This definitely has a legitimate chance I mean if she decides to show up with a game the thing that we're going to start talking about Jeff when when when I'm at clockers corner and and we're watching horses work and when we analyzed the the XP TV workouts leading up to the race between you and Millie Ah Zoe is going to be fitness levels and the one thing you're not going to have to worry about John. The sheriff's Baffert and Sadler is is fitness of these horses on that racetrack and that's going to be a huge factor and I'm I'M GONNA keep referring to the east coast horses that went to del Elmar for the Pacific Classic and God drowned on that deep surface and Steve Asmussen asked me to his credit with with tenfold he learned his lesson and went out early with Mottola because he is not gonna get caught on that element he wants his horses. This is ready to travel over that surface and it's going to be something we we really focus on and then I'm sure in the recap you know after breeders Peter Scott. It's GONNA come up well down. Mars is eat but it's it's not it's not any deeper than in Santa Anita where this is not the old Santa Anita track backwards you know three quarters in eight and change all all day long I mean you have to be did fit to run on. This track is deep. You just tiring you you have to train over it. I think I think it really helps and yeah I think it's going to be very important to to to watch the works and I I do think it's going to be a great advantage for horses to get in early and get a beast of one or maybe even to work over the drag your possible because it's it's not it's it's tough. It's it's it. It's deeper than New York and Belmont Park is I'm convinced of that and I know Belmont to be called the fanny and all that but this track is is big heavy. I mean it's the faith it's safe and that's why they made it so deep but you've gotta get through it and you gotTa. That'd be fit well. Let's get set to look at the weekend and before we talk about Saturday any any day maker ideas for today well. You know it's yeah I mean I I did do a couple of San Anita and I can give the a little bit of an insight today's tough but I like the Philly name swirling in the fourth race she's not the favorite averaged five to two zero six two five in there she's a late running turf sprinter that that I that likes attending through force and they're starting to run five and a half now in the first we've got a couple now they extended the shootout there so she'd found five furlongs on this course a little stripe and she was hitting the boy and running well but just running out of room now she goes five and a half and I noticed in the few couple of five and a half long since we've had so far that the closers have a better chance and she's she's good enough to win. and I think that extra half for a long we'll give her the edge that she needs so I'm looking at number two swirling in the fourth race to kind of heightened me over for that's my play play today. It's an okay car not a great guard but I think we can we can get some value there because she's not going to be the favorite it's excellent all right swirling today and Let's let's go to the weekend and obviously the steak the steak side of things Let's talk about talk about the city of hope I because it it it really is intriguing and I brought up with Jay earlier. Jeff the mixing and matching of older horses. I mean really veteran in six seven eight year olds like synchrony and Ohio and Bolo and catapult facing off against some horses that may be emerging What's your angle in the studio? It's really hard. I handicap this this race and I came up with about four or five that on their best day could win. synchrony is intriguing to me I think he's intrinsically the best of the group but he doesn't have a lot of tactical speed and going a mile on this course even though he's running the tool aww theoretically he could maybe draft into the mid part of the mid packing and save the nangle out and get through he tends to give himself a lot to do and I remember when he came out here for the CBS del Mar last November. The same thing happened. Do that was sixteen. He fell back. He he had some traffic trouble he got. That's where we finished. Fuller Ronnie finished thirty one but but he didn't get there so I I like him at five to one at synchrony shipper I I hope he gets the trip. If he doesn't then you can make a case for a number of these. I mean looking for fifteen to one shot number four on your program. Aziz restrained vengeance. He's GonNa get loose in the lead and if he does that he can be dangerous. TAT upholds training really well but he's form doesn't look all that well you gotta go back to the Kilroy Mile Back in March the finding good but at least it was over this turf fourth and he could pop up Sadler. He's five to one the raises a bunch of the race basically is is a bunch. That's a five to one shots hoping for good luck but I think maybe if he gets through synchrony can win I wanted to I wanted to like River Boyne off the lay off and then John White made him four to one and that that cooled my ardor well you know I looked at him him and he was a very good three year old and he hasn't won at four and haven't made a lot of progress at least according to his numbers and he goes from practice and I'm looking elsewhere. Let's put it that way you know a to go back to an angle from last week as that in fact Jay also came up with and Dash the other filled D'Amato player and here's able to do who the things that just seem to be running for Jeff at at least from what we saw last week while they they ran for a golden gate when he was leading rider up there and I talked to them for a number of years actually we had horses up there and he he wrote for us always felt that he was good enough but he was kingpin up there era and then he decided to make the leap and I thought it might be tough for them but it really hasn't he's really falling favor with the with the horsemen down here and he's a strong writer but he's a good rider as far as and dishes concern. He's coming off a nice win. Del Mar.. He's obviously never beaten this this group although he did run second Mendelssohn and his racing debut of that matters which it doesn't that was way back in two thousand seventeen at the Curragh but but he's he's he's developing. He's he's coming around and the way the model is going. I mean I wouldn't put anything past him and especially in a race like this in which really there is no standout and anything can happen so hey why not wanting to watch a couple of other thoughts. what do you make of this chance Salat Omaha beach matchup the very very different set of three year olds against elders in the in the sprint championship wells twelve sheds lots four to five in the morning line because he's not only the fastest horse in the race in terms of numbers but he's also look controlling speed and he doesn't even have to go that fast my my concern was and it's kind of happened in the Jerkins a little bit then I know that the inside part of the wasn't particularly hit that day but they kinda slowdown down twenty three flat forty five and and he's fast horse and I think you gotta use his weapon and I think going three quarters. They don't have to worry too much about you. Know saving reading anything so I I would suspect he'll bust out there and go. He had a nice breeze over the track. I think Navarro did the right thing by bringing them out early and breezy had a half and forty. He's seven and one third fastest at sixty five last week and he lied did it. The right way looked like he was relaxed like he got over the track very very well so he's going to be it really hard for Omaha Beach the rundown although I my theory about Omaha beach is that he's always wanted to be a sprinter and because he was so good and all the money's going long long that Richard Mandella kept running them wrong and why wouldn't he won the rebel in the Arkansas Derby any may have even able to win the Kentucky Derby had come down with the trap Levada brought his only sprint race of his career only race of seven that he actually sprinted
