"A network, the equine forum presented by twin spires right here on the horse racing. Radio network. Mike penna baron in the backstretch happy to have you in the starting gate with me right up until 11 a.m. eastern all across North America. On Sirius two 19, XM two O one, affiliates and Lexington Louisville and across the country and streaming worldwide on our website, horse racing radio net and podcast on a multitude of major podcast platforms, which include Apple podcasts and pod bean. Well, just about a month ago, on April 20th, I brought you the incredible story of young trainer will Walden, the son of windstar CEO Elliott Walden, who had just gone out on his own, starting his training career after hitting rock bottom overcoming overcoming drug addiction, going through rehab, and he even brought in some of his friends that he met in rehab. To join him and work with him on this new venture of training race horses, and it's been therapeutic for all of them. Well yesterday, was a magical day for will Walden. It was his first victory as a trainer, happened at Churchill downs when their Philly, dazzling Dominica. Won her second start and won by a length. In a 5 furlong maiden special weight race. Pretty special stuff. I was texting with will this morning he's fired up, meant an awful lot to him, and it's just the first of many victories to come. I know that. But that story on trainer talk check it out. It was April 20th. And what a story it is. It's powerful. And congratulations to will and to his team, and to everybody that has had a hand in getting him to this point in his life and now in his young training career. You know, I opened last week's show on Derby morning, talking about secret oaths win, in the Kentucky oaks. It was number 5 for Hall of Fame trainer D Wayne Lucas and it came 40 years after his first oaks win in 1982. And if you recall, I said that would likely be the moment of the year in thoroughbred racing, and it was going to take something pretty spectacular to top it. Well, about 11 hours after those words came out of my mouth, rich strike pulls off the second biggest upset in the 148 year history of The Kentucky Derby. And every year, fans are asked to vote on horse racing's moment of the year. And I always side with the one thing that you will remember. About racing when you think back on a given year. For example, last year, Japan's two victories in the breeders cup ended up being voted the moment of the year, not a bad choice. But it's not what I think about when I think about 2021 and the year in racing. The first thing this is going to come to mind for me, and I think for many of us, is the situation surrounding Bob Baffert and the disqualification of Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit. That was the story last year. The moment, and the moment Bob Baffert held the press conference at Churchill downs to announce to the world that the betamethasone overage was found in Medina spirits, post race test, that's your moment of the year. Like it or not, that's what 2021 will be remembered for in thoroughbred racing. That was the dominant story of the year. That was the moment. And believe it or not, that wasn't even among the choices, given to voters by the NTR last year, didn't make the list. I have no idea how that happened. And I know we still have 6 and a half months of racing left this year. And as much as I love the storyline, of 86 year old Wayne Lucas winning the Kentucky oaks and equaling the great woody Stephens, I think the moment people are going to remember from horse racing in 2022. Is rich strikes 80 to one upset in The Kentucky Derby. And I usually hate hate voting for a race as the moment of the year. Because I firmly believe that there is a huge difference between a race of the year in a moment which defines a year. Rich strikes upset second only to Donna rails 91 to one, 1913, is likely going to be the thing we remember about racing in 2022. The reason being, it happened in The Kentucky Derby. When NBC reports, 16 million people were tuned in. To see that upset. Many of those folks aren't going to watch another race this year. That's just the reality of it. There's only one Kentucky Derby. They may have tuned in to the Preakness, had rich strike decided to go. That would have been great theater. Can the upset or do it again? Can you take another step toward the Triple Crown? But for a good percentage of those 16 million viewers, they could care less. About races that we all love so much. Like the Preakness, like the Belmont, the Travers, the breeders cup. There's a reason that the NBC producers will remind their talent in the production meetings each year. That for that particular broadcast, The Kentucky Derby, they are broadcasting, not narrow casting. So many people are.

"Your way this week to get you ready for the 148th run for the roses. Mike penna Jude feld and Bobby Newman with you here this morning. That was Dave Johnson with the call of the 1999 run for the roses. The last of four victories in The Kentucky Derby for the great Hall of Famer D Wayne Lucas, who is kind enough to spend a little time with us on this show this morning, he is at his barn, so he joins us by phone, Wayne, good morning, happy Derby week, my friend. The hell of a call by Dave, you know, I met charismatic race. That was great. I liked the part where it was one, two, and then all of a sudden got to be one three, but it was still a great call. Wayne, you've always said that you have to be in it to win it, and nobody is better in these big spots than Wayne Lucas. Ethereal road is now in. You got to shop my friend. Well, you know I was saying some of your colleagues earlier today. The thing about it is it's an achievement to get in it. You try to get this clientele, but you represent in give them this opportunity. It's so important to so many of them. When they get in the third race and they really want to then say, try to get into one of these classic races, especially The Kentucky Derby. So I think it's an achievement to get in it. The other thing that you can't overlook is that if you run third and that you get 300,000, if you run forth and that you get a 150,000, so you get 600,000 runs second. It's quite a lucrative economic decision also. One of the things that you've been noted for your whole career is having horses in these big races and you're one of the guys that can get you to The Kentucky Derby, isn't that kind of how you've acquired a lot of clients. They know that you can do this and they want to be in the Derby. So they get Wayne Lucas to train for them. Well, I.

"On the first Friday in May and it is going to be an incredible couple of weeks and thoroughbred racing. It's a great weekend of racing this weekend too. Lots of action coming up later today. I told you about all of the top horses who are returning to action this weekend. Not just oaks and Derby horses, but older horses too. Horses that we saw in the breeders cup in November, swinging back into action this weekend. And you have the privilege now of hosting the program with my special guest that is TV G analyst Kate and radar who is nice enough to spend some time with HR and nation. You can call in and talk to Kate and directly 888-966-4776. That is 8 8 8 9 6 6 hr as you are now the host of the show and I couldn't be happier to welcome Kate and to the program. Kate and thanks for taking a little time. Oh, Mike, it's my pleasure. Yeah, really excited for this segment and I know our listeners are excited to get the chance to talk with you. You've been you've been analyzing races and handicapping races at a high level for a very, very long time. And this is a very special treat for our listeners. Well, you know, it's always fun when you get a chance to connect because a lot of times we're so often on the air that you don't get the time to mingle with everybody else and all the race fans that are out. So that's almost been the hardest part about keenland lately is not being able to get out there. So this is a great opportunity for me. All right, here you go. 888-966-4776. The number to call you be the host. I'm Mike penna, but you're hosting the show now. Not me. And Kate and radar is your special guest. Kate and we have a couple of questions from email and from social media. So I'll start with the email question. LT from Louisville wants to know, he said, okay, he knows that your husband Doug is a jockey agent and he wants to know what some of your favorite moments or maybe your favorite moment is of one of his clients, whether it's a race or a moment that stands out to you. Well, probably the most immediate one was the very first breeders cup victory that fleuron got because he, you know, you dream of something like that, but when Doug took on Florence book and started working with him, you know, it's kind of pie in the sky, right? To ever achieve on that level. And when he came to the breeders cup, it was in California with work all week for Midwest thoroughbreds. He didn't necessarily have the opportunity to ride internationally or on that highest stage as regularly as he does now. And so even though we had confidence in work all week, it still was sort of an out of body experience when we watched him win. And everything just went like clockwork from the time the gates opened. And I just had a very confident good feeling about him. I really thought he was good enough to win, but when it all unfolded that way, I don't think I've ever been more excited in my life. I mean, it's almost as if you own the horse yourself. That's how exciting it is to watch and see that come together. I was so happy for a dog. I was so happy for florent. I was happy for the connections. The horse was a cool horse. That we had spent a lot of time back at the barn with two. So that's probably the first one that jumps out, but we've had an awful lot. I mean, I am so grateful for the ride, which I was very skeptical about when Doug, he wanted to do it, and I was a 100% behind him trying something like that, but you just couldn't have ever even cooked up how well everything came together and how great the ride has been. So gun runner in the Pegasus gun runner in the breeders cup classic. Monomoy girl was really, really a special horse. So any of those wins are also extremely memorable. Yeah, great question, LT. Keep them coming. You can email the show. You can hit us up on social media or you can call in to talk to Kate and radar directly. That is what Bobby and bayside has done. Bobby go ahead, you are hosting the show. You're on with kaiten. Hey, good morning, Kate. Being the father of three daughters have always been a great fan of the female species and you watch all the shows now and the insight given by the girls on all the different platitudes around the country is fantastic. And I think it's probably my favorite horse of all time. And I walked out of Belmont on July 6th, 1975, with tears in my eyes when we're up here broke down. I broke her maiden, and I followed her. Religiously. But you know, the females on the back stretch are everywhere and it's so, so different from when I first started in the 60s with the game. And you girls just do a wonderful wonderful job. Oh, well, thank you. You know, it's different from when I started, too, as far as the number of women that are on the back stretch and involved in the sport. And you know, I've never felt uncomfortable or out of place, but it sure is wonderful now to see so many more women out there and I think earning the respect of people from the top trainers through the ranks of whether it's women that are galloping horses, women that are training horses, you know, I think that it's just been a real pivotal moment to be involved in the sport for women in general to see how quickly they've been able to move into every aspect of the game and have some success. And I think that they still have a ways to go to have the numbers be equal. But at the same time, I really feel we've come a long way in a relatively short period of time. I like to think of it in terms of my life because even though I've been around an awful long time, it's gone by awfully quick. Yeah, Bobby appreciate the phone call 888-966-4776. The number to call and talk with TV G analyst Kate and radar, Kate and here's another one that comes from Twitter, Carl and New Jersey wants to know what you.

"And animal kingdom is pouncing later the jungle Asuka is now animal kingdom on the outside who goes to leave the jungle out against and he's going there by telling and running to the line animal kingdom wins the narrow in seconds in third game mucho natural man in fourth with shackleford and then master of hounds and fever, brilliant speed and then pass on fire and dialed in never got to them. It was animal kingdom for grand ocean and John Velasquez, who took 31 37. Welcome back to the equine forum presented by twin spires here on HR N Mike penna baron in the backstretch with you right up until 11 a.m. eastern on this Saturday morning Mark Johnson with the call of animal kingdom's victory in The Kentucky Derby. That was one of many big wins for Hall of Fame finalist Graham motion in what has been a magical career for him and he is a very deserved member of that Hall of Fame ballot. We'll see if he gets in. It is his first time on the ballot. I know he would probably love it more than anything, but let's hear that from him. He's with me now here on HR N Graham, good morning. Hey, good morning, Mike. Congratulations on that honor of being a Hall of Fame finalist, my friend. Well, thank you. It's very flattering. When you got the news that you were a finalist this year, what was that phone call or that message like? You know, I think I saw it on social media, actually. Come on. You know, obviously it's something that you know, I really try not to think about it. I remember a long time ago when I was training for dog with stable, mister Campbell sent me a really nice email and said, you know, one day you'll be in the Hall of Fame. And I kind of thought of that time. That's crazy. That's crazy talk. So it's a little surreal. Well, you look at your resume and you see that you're closing in on 2600 career victories per earnings in excess of $136 million and you've trained a 181 graded stakes winners in your career. Do you view yourself as a Hall of Famer now? I'm not really. No, I mean, look, I've won some amazing races and I feel incredibly fortunate to do that, but there's an awfully lot of good, really good trainers out there. Who may not have had the opportunities I've had. So I've been lucky to be around some really good horses. It's really good horses and really good people too. And you mentioned cock Campbell and dogwood. Who are some of the people Graham, that if you were, if you were putting together some thoughts for a Hall of Fame acceptance speech, who are some of the people that you want to make sure, first and foremost, that you're thanking for getting you to where you are. Well, I mean, look, obviously, the trainers that I worked for for Jonathan shepherd and Bernie Barnes, I never would have gotten the start I had if it hadn't been for either one of them. You know, and then as far as owners go, I was talking to somebody this morning, you know, misses abercrombie was incredibly loyal to me and she passed away a month or two ago, which is very sad. It's kind of the end of an era. So I've been supported by some really good people who have stuck with me and they become harder and harder to find these days. You know, when Todd pletcher was making his speech this past year, he made sure that he thanked his owners and the people to help them. And he also wanted to make sure that he thanked the horses because without the athletes in your care, you're not in this position. Who are some of the horses we mentioned animal kingdom we heard that call certainly he's going to hold a special place in your heart, but some of the horses that when you think back over the years, you're never going to forget. Well, look, there's a couple of horses that help put me on the map. The first one was a horse called Gale has been away who was just a real hard knocking warrior in Maryland. And I really don't think I would have had to start. I had if it hadn't been for him. You know, he was a horse that I kind of inherited from Bernie barn when Bernie retired, and then obviously better talk now. Winning my first breeder's cup, I really think he put me on the map. I think that's what brought me attention from some international clients. And I think those three horses animal kingdom who you obviously mentioned better to now and gayla spin away. They really were the three that kind of put me on the map if you like, or took me to a different level at that stage of my career. You know, so many trainers Graham would give their right arm to have the type of career that you have had. Are there, I'm sure there are, are there things that you would still like to accomplish in the sport that you've yet to do? Well, yes. I mean, obviously, you want to be performing at the top level. And I guess in the last couple of years, we've tried to scale down a little bit on numbers and try to concentrate it on quantity. And that's something that takes a while to do. But I think it's not a secret that I'd love to win an international race. I'd love to win a race in Europe. I think that's really a bucket list item for me. In order to do that, do you have to shift your approach and do you have to scale things back a little bit in order to focus on that goal? I don't think so. Look, I think Wesley has been kind of a pioneer for all of us and getting us to go to Europe with these turf horses. And. I think he's really changed the face of the way we do things. And like I said, he's a pioneer. I mean, I don't think I would have gone to ask if Wesley hadn't gone before us, and he's done an outstanding job at it. I've just been knocking at the door, but it's something that I think it goes to show how hard it is to do it. And how remarkable it is, what Wesley's accomplished over there. What's the race you would love to win most in Europe? Oh, I don't think there's a particular one. I mean, obviously I'd love to win a graded race over there and ask it's kind of the meat that we're focused on just because it's something that sort of falls into our hands. We came close with sharing with temple city run really well over there. So we've come close, but we haven't quite got across the finish line yet. Talking with trainer Graham motion here on the horse racing radio network, Graham, I've always said that one thing about you is that you represent.

"This week's unsung hero, the segment presented by our friends at woodbine entertainment and as you can hear, she does remarkable work, not just working with Joe sharp, but certainly behind the scenes as well with horses and placing them in a good home or at least a good facility after their racing careers are concluded. That relationship with Michael blowen, who now runs old friends. And I've gotten to know Michael over the years too. He's fantastic. That relationship is kind of like a father daughter relationship for you, isn't it? Yeah. It's really funny. Everybody asks and you know, I refer to him as dad and he refers to me as his daughter and it's like I was looking for a dad and he was looking for a daughter. He has a son that's my age, I think a year younger than I am and has nothing to do with horses and like is that I'm everything that he ever wanted. And same that goes to him. I mean, I don't unfortunately, I don't know my dad. And yeah, I mean, what's a perfect combo? How many horses larita do you think over the years you've been able to steer in the right direction to a good home after they leave you or after they leave the racetrack? Well, when we were back at Suffolk, we had counted back then about 200 at that time. And that was several years ago. So it's a group effort. It takes a village. It takes communication. It's networking. It's all of us. Like I said, if getting involved and finally somebody listening, I have some great people and to thank Sam Elliott who stood by me. He was VP of Suffolk downs. He was a race and secretary. He used to do sports center. I mean, he always believed in me from a small child. And really, really stood by me. So he helped me throughout the years on higher levels with Richard fields when he bought stuff and downs. And really pushed for what I believed in and then he got involved and, you know, just everywhere, we all went, it followed us. And we need it. We need it. We need more people to understand it. When you got the news that you were going to be the winner of godolphin's dedication to racing award. What was that moment like for you? First of all, I couldn't even I didn't even believe that when they told me that I said, you know, I was nominated and I was one of the three. I didn't even like it didn't fabric. I was like, oh, that's nice, somebody nominated. And they're like, no, Joe had to tell me on the phone. He's like, no, you're one of three. I'm like, what? He's like, yeah, no, you have to go. He's like, you know, I just couldn't believe it. And we actually, we all laughed because everybody thought Joe nominated me and we're like, no, somebody else said. And then when I found out who did it, it was very touching. Yeah, and that was narrowed down to three from more than 200 nominees in that particular category, which you think about that and you think about you being the one standing at the end who has given this award and for good reason. That's pretty remarkable, laurita and thank you for everything that you do to help horses in our sport. No, thank you, and like I said, we couldn't do it without everybody. It takes everybody to do what we do on a daily basis. Love of mine, anything else. Yeah, there are several unsung heroes. They don't do it alone. Laurita does not either. And laurita, all the best, keep up the wonderful work and again, thanks for taking the time here this morning. Great. Thank you so much. All right, laurita lindeman here.

"That's 88 9 6 6 four 7 7 6. Now here's Mike penna and Jude fell. What's up, HR, RN nation, ready to take your phone calls here for the next hour on our final furlong listener call in show. Mike penna baron in the backstretch, Jude fell. He's the pontiff of the pick four and the Uber capper Ellis star our producer Lee de la pina all with you in our Lexington Kentucky studios in ready to roll here on in an exciting show. These listener Colin shows always a lot of fun. We welcome everybody tuning in on XM two O 9 and of course just joining us on Sirius channel 93 Internet smartphone 9 61 and we're not going to waste any time guys getting right to our first caller going here to Kentucky. Georgetown and Tom online Tom thanks for calling the show. Thank you. Good. Good evening. Question I have with oak one opening up tomorrow. It's kind of a handicapping question. But for a meat like this where it starts off and it's fairly cold when they usually do lose some days because of the cold. But then they finish up in April when it's from the 70s. You know, good luck in Oakland on specific days, but as far as far as following the track and things like that is the season goes. What's the best way for a handicapper to kind of watch for maybe a track bias or the way that the racetrack changes? Well, I think you've got to look day to day. It helps if you keep a little notebook or punch it in your phone or whatever. You can also if you don't get a chance to see the races, you can go back and look at the charts and make your notes that way as to whether speed was sticking or closers were winning. Oakland is a funny track. There's a lot of clay in it, and it does play different from day to day. Mike and I were there in the springtime and it was a couple of days it was very speed favoring and then a couple of days it was really anti speed bias, big closers were winning. So it is a funny track and it does behoove you to pay attention. Yeah, I would add that if you don't know due to the chart to charge or totally free nowadays and dot com or DRS are all the same charts and you can look at the charts, the full chart and what's really cool is on the echo based chart, there's not only the regular chart you used to looking at. There's also the chart the way it would appear in the PP lines which shows you how many links behind a horse was as opposed to from one to ten. It's by horse and shows you where they ran. So you can get an idea of where the winner was around the track or how particular horse ran. And I think just glancing over it will give you an idea. And I would just break it up really into sprints and routes to anything that's around one turn and two turns, keep those separate for now. Don't worry about specific distances. And that would give you a better idea of how it's playing. Okay, thanks, guys. I guess by a different tracks and that one just seems to always confuse me as it goes through and I'm glad you're coming to you because I always thought maybe it was just the fact that some of the horses have been off in the winter and developed in the season went on. Well, that's always a problem, you know, golf streams kind of like that, the first few weeks, very unsettled. I've never done well gambling the first part of Gulfstream. I always do much better late in the meat. And a lot of meats are like that. It's really hard when you have horses coming from everywhere and so I would say tread a little lightly at the beginning of the meat, make your notes and then get more serious as time goes on. Okay, thank you, Paul is very chill. Tom, thank you so much. Thanks for the call. Thanks for listening. Tom leaves the line open 8 8 8 9 6 6 HR, RN that's 888-966-4776 give us a call if you want to weigh in on what we were talking about before the show. If you have a opinion and horse of the year and maybe how races are weighted, maybe in particular, the breeders cup. If you think that in instances that's been weighted too heavily on the voting at the end of the year, if you think that horses kind of become out of sight out of mind, it could be the case with all have another way in, give us a call 8 8 8 9 6 6 hr and great question about Oakland. I actually used to do that. I used to, when I had a little bit more time on my hands, I would sit there and go through charts and I would save the charts every day and I had them in a notebook and I would circle horses that got into trouble and I'd make a note of those horses and put them in a separate file. And then I would circle horses that ran well against the bias that day. If I saw like two days in a row, where speed was winning everything, but horses came flying at the end. I would wait for those horses to either go to another track that favored horses coming from off the pace or I would kind of make a note of that and say, okay, when the track changes, this horse comes back, look out because they really ran a big race, even though they didn't win. Right. Right. And that's important. It is a lot of work being a good handicapper. It's not super easy sometimes. All right, next color on the line, chips, calling from Missouri,.

"Talk, presented by facing tipton on the horse racing radio network. Trainer Todd Fletcher has reached the stratosphere. It was all have another that dug O'Neal. Spoon over Miami for Bill Matt. 3000 for trainer Mark Cassie. Lucas a 6 win. Barefoot with another incredible milestone, but it was old for shutting the game with number 1000 for the great Trevor McCarthy. Here's 2000 for Nick zito. Steve asks him is now North America's all time leading trainer. Now here's Mike peda. Hello again, everyone and welcome to the show, trainers listen to. It is trainer talk and it's all presented by phasic tipton right here on the horse racing radio network. Mike penna baron of the backstretch, excited as always to have you with me for what promises to be an exciting hour on today's show should be a lot of great information and a lot of things that you'll enjoy hearing over the course of the next hour. You are listening all across North America on Sirius two 19 XM two O one and streaming live or podcast on our HRI website and of course you're doing that at horse racing radio dot net. Well, today's guest began his training career in the early 1970s. And he is fast approaching the 1300 win milestone. And if his recent success is any indication, it's not going to take him long to get there. The 70 year old conditioner has come out firing at the recent fairgrounds meet currently tied for second in the standings behind Ron faucher and Jose Camus, whom, by the way, you heard on this very same show a couple of weeks ago. He may be best known for one very special Friday afternoon beneath the twin spires on May 2nd, 1997, when his talented three year old Philly blushing KD added her name to the long list of memorable Kentucky oaks winners. And it is my true pleasure to welcome trainer, Sam David junior to trainer talk presented by Facebook tipped in here today. Sam appreciate the visit. Thank you, Mike. Yeah. You know, we're going to spend a lot of time talking about blushing KD in that run that you had with her. But let's start by looking back on the role that you've been on at fairgrounds, which has been bolstered by, of course, that four wind day on December 5th and I think what makes that even more remarkable Sam is the fact that you entered 5 horses on that 8 race program. One of them was an also eligible and with scratched, which left you with four, and they all won. Incredible. Yeah, that was a really big day. Like you say, a lot of people win four or 5 races a day, but they usually have 8 or 9 in there. So to run four and win four, that was really a special day for us. I don't think I've ever done for a day. Now I was trying to think back and my brother who's been with me for years that said, we won three in a second one time, but I don't think everyone for. So I'm assuming that he's right. Yeah, I know you can be confident going into a day and you can like the horses that you're gonna send out there. But look, there's more ways to lose a race than there is to win one. When you sat back at the end of the day and said, oh my gosh, we just went four for four. What's that like for a trainer? Oh, I mean, really exciting. It was great. And like you said, we knew we had four live shots, but even with live shots you don't usually have everything go your way or horses don't fire or something like that. But that day, everything just went perfect. We rode marcelino Padres, who won 5 for 5 that day. So he was riding really heads up and good competitive races and that really helped us a lot, I think he did a great job for us, but the horses all ran well and that's something you don't usually get one of them out of the four that throws in a clunker throws in Delray so we were really excited to have them all around that good for us. Horse players will play a pick for, and they'll get to the final leg after winning the first three, and they're anxious to try to hit the full pick four. They have their fingers crossed. They're calling on every superstition that they've ever thought of. How about for a trainer? You get to that last leg. You've won three. Are you thinking, okay, it's been a great day. No matter what happens here, we've had a wonderful day or are you thinking, man, I want to go four for four. Well, I mean, we want to go four for four, of course, but and the horse in the last leg was a live horse. I felt like he was 5 and I was a little concerned down the backside when he got back a little further than I thought he should be. And I said, we probably ran out of luck, but he did he dug in real good for split horses and came running probably his best race for us. So that was something that we were really excited about, but you never you're hoping to go forward before, but you're really happy. If we don't want to three, we sure have been really happy with it, you know. Yeah, it's so hard to win one. Yeah, it's so hard to win one and I've heard jockeys and they've talked to me on this show about getting in the zone. And they'll have a 5 win day. Like you said, like you said, your rider did that day. And you just get into the zone. Do trainers ever kind of find some kind of zone where everything you're doing with horses just seems to be clicking at a certain time in your barn? Oh, definitely. There's an old saying, when you're doing good, you can run the pony over there and he'll win for you. So you get in the same kind of zone. It's just one of those things you just can't seem to do anything wrong and hopefully we have a meat like that instead of just a day. But everything's really running good for us here at the fairgrounds. We came in a little different this year. We didn't run quite as hard over the summer because we felt we're going to be down at evangeline. So the owners of most of my horses, the Hernandez and Jon dug we all said, let's just kind of press it them all up and get them ready for the fairground. So we knew we felt like we could come in here and have a big meat. But we're just still got to work here even though you feel like it and you do everything you plan on a lot of times it doesn't come together for you, but so far we felt like everything we've taken over there is run the race. So that's a big plus for us. Yeah, it gets better because those four winners actually capped off a stretch where you won 5 consecutive races at the fairgrounds going back to your previous winner there. So it was quite a stretch. And I mentioned earlier that it put you near the top of the trainer standings now. Do you have enough firepower to stick with some of those guys throughout the meat? Oh, probably not. But as long as our horses run good and continue to win, I'd really like to see my owners when the leading owner titled more than I mean not more than me. I like where to, but I just don't think I have the horses that they have or the tech forces that can continue on the win. But my owners really they've been in for a long time. I'm talking to Keith and Earl Hernandez and John duvel their partners shipped here that breeds towards their own and they've been in the game for a long, long time. And it would really be a feather in our cap. They could come away with the leading owner title here at the fairgrounds. They're pretty much strictly campaigning most of their home.

"To value a horse when purchased out of a public auction. The insured value would simply be the auction price. But ensuring home breads can be a little more involved. How so? Well, factors such as a stud fee, confirmation, pedigree, sales and race records of siblings, even popularity of the stallion, all come into play. How closely do you work with owners in determining a horse's value? Well, the owner has a pretty good idea of the horse's value. So generally, it's just a matter of agreeing to the request and having the policy issued.

You of course are tuned in all across North America on Sirius two 19 XM two O one and you're streaming us live or podcasting at horse racing radio dot net. Well, today's guest is roughly one month or so into her training career. One week ago, she came within a nose and I mean it was a flared nostril of finding out what it feels like to settle her first career winner. It's a feeling her father Joe knows extremely well. He's coming off his first ever leading trainer title at emerald downs this past summer. Her brother manages Waldorf farm in upstate New York. So for her, horse racing is and always has been a family affair. Please join me in welcoming trainer carat toy to trainer talk presented by facing tipton. Kara appreciate the visit. Thanks for having me. Yeah, excited to hear your story. You know, it's interesting when you see your name on Equis or in the program, it says Cara Lynn toy. So do you prefer Carolyn or kerato? Well, my mom was also a trainer. So before she met my dad, she's carried toy and there's always our mail would get mixed up in all sorts of things. And we're one letter off. So later on in life, I was kind of angry because bills would come later, whatever and she said, well, just go buy Carolina. I'm like, why didn't you name me that? So I guess it was just my way of differentiating, but honestly, I don't care. You can call me Kara. Yeah, I mean, your mom a trainer, your dad, a trainer, your brother, working, managing the farm. Was this all you were ever going to do, Kara? It's all I wanted to do. I mean, I went to college, my dad was kind of mad because he wanted me to continue to work for him. But I wanted options in life, but I knew they were just options and the thing that I really wanted to do. I'm finally doing it. So here I am. I actually have another half brother who runs a feed company. And so high end alfalfa and on the West Coast. So even more so. All the bases. Yeah, that's the place to be if you want that Washington what's it called three tie or what's the name of the hay that's made out there? It's a really good area empathy producing hay, right? Yeah. Timothy. Yes. High quality Orchard grass and alfalfa. Yep, yeah, that's what I thought. You know, you think about that and you think about your family background and I mentioned in my open that it is a family affair for you. You said you went to college, though. You thought about keeping your options open? Where'd you go to school? I went to school in central Washington University. I figured the whole I really just wanted to avoid math and so for some reason I chose a business program, which was shows how much common sense I might have. But I figured the whole world was in business and supply chain. So I figured that was kind of all encompassing. So that's where I ended up. When did your last 7 years? Yeah, I was going to say when did you realize that college wasn't going to be well, I guess not for you, but that you were going to be back in horse racing and not pursue something else. I tried it. I got hurt so many times. It was really the main thing. I had always ridden and kind of resold repurposed all my family's resources and kind of put myself through college doing that. And you know, I got hurt a lot, so I broke my back, I broke both my ankles, both my wrists, all this through this hobby of mine and I was like, you know, never been heard on a racehorse and that's the one that's actually going to pay me. So, you know, I just never could really get away from it. Yeah, you still getting on horses today? All of my own, I definitely, I've taken a meandering path to where I'm finally at and I'm happy and I've, you know, kind of turn both feet walking forward into this career path, but yeah, I was breaking babies and thought, well, might as well do it for myself, so here I am. All right, so this show is all about you and I don't like to talk about me very often on this program. But I'm going to tell you a quick story. I don't know how you do it, because I've been on a horse twice in my life for a trail ride, both times. It scared the hell out of me both times, thinking, if this horse wants me off their back, they're a lot bigger than me. I'm gone. And I was very, very nervous. They say that's not good because horses can sense that kind of stuff. I never did get very comfortable. Why, after everything you went through with all the broken bones and this and that, why would you still want to get on a horse, Kara? Well, you know, the more everybody I kind of encounter, I'm learning from, right? So part of this meandering path was dressage lessons that I was taking and I really learned that like some of the greatest outbursts and things like that is really just insecurity in a horse. So it kind of learning why things happened and thinking it through and I guess pure obsession, I just wanted to master it. I mean, I've written with Olympians and things like that and had some success at the show horse world, but nothing really transferred right through to the horse racing and the breaking and the riding until I kind of really got interested in why horses acted the way they did and things like that. So I guess I'm just fascinated and obsessed. Does it get to the point where you can tell when a horse is going to misbehave? Yeah, I would say that that's one of the greatest ways of keeping horses safe and riders safe is just that anticipation. They really feel your energy kind of thing. So if you're listening, you know, they're speaking. Would that be the same thing for a jockey too? Do you think? Yeah, and the good writers just have feel. It that ultimately can settle one or two steps ahead of them. They can spot a situation and say, I'm not going to run up on these heels because I'm going to have to take.

"But you never know how about you. I've been to the derby. Lots of times, I have absolutely no desire to go to the Daytona five hundred other than to be in Florida. I guess. Maybe the Super Bowl, I think that would be fun to go to the Super Bowl once, but it's not really high on my list because I'm I'm a real television football fan. Yeah. I mean, I like watching the replays, and plus Akashi an arm and a leg to go to the Super Bowl inventive. I almost went once with Mike Mitchell. Didn't wasn't able to pull it off head too many horses running heated too, but he was big shot. Yeah. Just a little guy. But the maybe the Super Bowl Super Bowl would probably the masters would be fun too. I enjoy golf I enjoy going to golf tournaments.

Then you probably should keep your mouth shut. But note, no cameras. You can't even bring a camera into Gusta, which I think is actually kind of cool. Look, I mean, here's the deal. I've been to the Kentucky Derby like you every year since nineteen ninety eight missed one year. And I guess when I was thinking about this question. I said, okay. How would I answer? It. It depends on if you're talking about which might penny. You're talking about is it the pre nineteen ninety eight Mike penetrated never been to the Kentucky Derby, or is it the one that's been there. Multiple times sense that that Mark. Take nothing away from the derby. But if you're talking about the pre ninety eight Mike penna, I'm all over the Kentucky Derby, and this one because that was the one thing I wanted to do more than anything was go to the Kentucky Derby at this point having been there. So many times in only to the masters once I think I think now voting on that poll questions probably the masters, I would like to go back there again because it was it was right up there with any Kentucky Derby that I've been to it was it was that good. I rank those two one in one in terms of the two greatest sporting events that I've ever been to. Well. Yeah. It's a good recommendation. Yeah. So interesting poll question there. Let us know your thoughts in the second one. I'll throw this out very quickly. We'll have two of them out there for you to vote on. We'll update those throughout the program. This was a prop bet you bet prop bets in Vegas on just about everything. So here you go this prop bet if you're going to bet on a trainer to saddle the Kentucky Derby winner this year. We'll give you Bob Baffert or we'll give you all other trainers. Bob Baffert or all others five time derby winner. Bob, Baffert or all of the trainers. Those two choices keep in mind Baffert has juvenile champion game winner out there. He has mutual Gustavo roadster improbable Desmond kingly, much better. And he's probably got a couple of others waiting in the weeds who knows maybe a horse. It hasn't started yet could win the triple crown. He says noted. So those are two things you can go to at H R N Twitter horse racing radio network Facebook, let us know your thoughts, and we'll pass on the results of those two questions later in the program.

There's grey sky. As far as you can see. But anyway, we'll use the words of chichi Rodriguez. The great golfer God makes the day, and I lived through it. And that's where we're at today. Gonna take a little work to live through this one in some aspects here today because it is going to be rainy. It is going to be windy. It'll be cooler than what we're used to here in south Florida as a matter of fact, right now, I'm not even sure if we reach the sixty degree Mark and believe the high for the day is predicted to be right around sixty eight.

The nine million dollar Pegasus World Cup and the seven million dollar Pegasus World Cup turf in total twelve races nine stakes six of those graded and a total of more than seventeen million dollars in purses up for grabs. What day it is going to be? But JT nobody told mother nature that this was going to be a special day here in south Florida. She's not cooperating to say looks like it's not going to change much. There's grey sky. As far as you can see. But anyway, we'll use the words of chichi Rodriguez. The great golfer God makes the day, and I lived through it. And that's where we're at today. Gonna take a little work to live through this one in some aspects here today because it is going to be rainy. It is going to be windy. It'll be cooler than what we're used to here in south Florida as a matter of fact, right now, I'm not even sure if we reach the sixty degree Mark and believe the high for the day is predicted to be right around sixty eight. The main track is now sealed it was raining throughout much of the early hours this morning. So the main track is sealed the the training this morning was cancelled. They're trying everything they can to keep this tracking good shape for this afternoon's races special guest co host Mark auto from red brand fences sitting with us here this morning for the two hours. Mark look, the Gulfstream is gonna take all precautions. They're gonna do everything they can to get this tracking good shape by race time special. I post of eleven thirty. But when you get the rain here, south, Florida, it can come down heavy. And it can come down quickly. Absolutely. When the radar. It's stretched back to the west about as far as you can see in building. Yeah. The momentum building. That's the good news. Yeah. So when you're handicapping handicap for an off race track and handicapped more than likely for turf that's going to have a little bit give to it. Which is something Jude that we're not used to seeing here in south, Florida. No, not at all. This is very. Rare to have a day like this, and and especially this time of year. But you know, it is what it is. I was up mystic, I pack them swim trunks not going to be in use. We flew out, so pack. My passport though, case I made a big score. And then I'll go to the bomb. Well, played Barbados, maybe Barbara's. Absolutely. That would definitely work. It has been a busy week, Mark. And you know, it better than anybody..
