Pletcher has done some amazing things with his house and he has certain pictures around the house. That means so much to him He told me that a couple of weeks ago. How about you if. I walk into mike.

That i got to watch right. It's just amazing. And even now watch the younger right and it just seemed to step it up and take it to another level man. It's pretty neat. I couldn't honestly name name a mountain big enough. That's a great way to put it. There have been so many great ones over the years and mike smith certainly among them. How about the horses mike. I know there have been so many great horses and we'd be here all day trying to talk about all these big name horses that you've written many times that as i was growing up i had to favorite jockeys there was chris mccarron and there was mike smith and you were my holy bowman is you know i'm a massive hole fan and still my favorite horse of all time and I'm just curious. Outside of the you know the horses that everybody thinks about like justify the horses that are gonna come to mind for you when you think back on your career. Well lower the one you showed first of all. He was just in really special horse to me. There's a horse that you might not remember you. One previous on. And he was brilliant horse he maiden race record A pray by you back in the day that was was really special horse in need but You know. Of course man. I i i just so many wonderful horses. I've been so blessed to ride. I be hard to say would be at the top of tea. I think everyone would always remembers indiana's well. She was just an amazing credible maryland. Probably one of the fastest courses for mile quarter. I think that. I've ever been on that at least with tied. Did that fast. As a horse called arrogate who ran speed figure that was out of this world at times Pretty incredible force but again you know been so many good ones. I can't. I can't just name a few of them. They're all they're all special in their time. You know every time you think that one's retiring or they're going rarely never have another one like that and then man here comes another one and it's just amazing so they all deserved to be the best They were during their era during their third time.

I've ever been involved in part of if not the greatest one besides always beat the boys and the classic you know. And then you look at the horses it that that arrogate beat that day after getting just annihilated leaving the starting gate and basically spotting them anywhere from ten to fifteen links it seemed like and you may run by a horse called gun runner.

That were two thousand dollars claim irs and you worked your tail off and you work your way up. What were the early days. Like for mike smith so fun you know. I think we always were who were.

You don't go to work. You know you you go out to play almost every day and it's it's it's it's been that way from from from day one. I mean excluding the injury you know. That's the only time that you might have an incident that the quite you know that you might not you. You're not gonna want of course but the but the rest of it every part of it the upscale teaches you about life and just it's just you have such a passion for you never felt like worth really really hasn't i was like i am going to play around every day. I'll tell you. What was the moment. When mike smith knew that he wanted to be a jockey for a living we know always was raised around morse's Their new mexico on my grandparents rationed both sides of my family were involved in in in racing at some point My father even wrote a little bit My uncle thomas bagels training just recently stopped Training i mean he trained up and he's eighty eighty two years old now but it was just involved with horses all along and really athletic. I love sports. You wasn't growing much and remember walking secretary win the derby On tv and as a little kid and thinking that. that's what. I wanna do that from that moment on it started. Started practicing from that from that day on. Do you remember the first horse that you were aboard. I've been writing for since. I can't remember the impact. The walk just about as far as a horse. But it's a first racehorse. I was on was probably my grandfather's her name was on the saint caller daisy for short. But she was really pretty black philly cole quarterhorse and actually my first match. Where was that in new mexico. New mexico a believer. The race probably ran at Tj new mexico. Long island yeah. That's so cool. Though i mean we hear about jockeys come from louisiana and riding in the the bush races there. You're writing in match races in new mexico to get started. What were those like. They were and they're always run on sundays and had gone to church. I my grandma said after that we ran home and loaded them up and went off to the races man. It was so those kinds. i'll never forget. They were just amazing and the ones that got me going with got me started. What your first. Big break mike. That launched you into another level is my first big break was the day i decided i wanted to be a jockey. Honesty like every day was a break from me. And i just love doing what i would. I do every racetrack. i went to. I thought it was the greatest place ever been Especially when you win like just in some pretty easy for me. I mean i. I don't know why that was why it is. But i can just say this fall in love with horses. My first break man. it really was. It was huge. And i've been blessed to have done wonderful things and i can name one specific race or one specific Horse that i thought. Wow you know that this is my big gray. Made it i. I thought i made it from day. I went to santa fe down the first day we pulled through stable gate. I've made it. Yeah it's so special to see where you are today after those humble beginnings and it only comes from hard work right. You mentioned that you knew that this what you wanted to do from the very beginning but you have to work your tail off. Who are some of the people that helped you kind get started with your career. You know early on you know my my uncle l. I yeah host thomas by one starving back home and then you know i went into once i started riding in jim curried way back in india. Mexico really helped out a lot. And i moved on into oakland and know i in love with pat damon. I met him in washington and was just at all of them in this very blessed that he became a big influence in my life and really really helped me out kinda did and showed me.
Why Would Jaguars Sign Tim Tebow?
"We are back final hour. It's been a fun show. We appreciate you being here. A lot of conversation with my Mike smith earlier. We also talked to dennis dodd. Another conversation predictably has been tim. Tebow we've given you a lot of reaction on that in the mike cannon bom from espn former gm jets dolphins. He's been here a couple of times. He had this to say earlier today. On keyshawn jay will and zubin about understanding the signing. I don't like it. I just don't see the upside in this move. He's thirty four years old. He would be a backup. I just don't know of thirty four year old players that can come in and be back place special teams and you're taking away a roster spot from hopefully a young developmental player that could grow with a young nucleus obviously led by trevor lawrence. And to me this is probably through the lens of urban. Meyer saying a decade. And a half ago tim tiba was the most competitive guy i've ever been around and he can help set the culture. If i was in that building what i would be pushing back saying coach. That may be true but in the nfl as you well know. Players needs to be led by players. They believed can take them to where they wanna go and as a backup tight end. I just don't think tim tebow would have that same credibility as he wants dave when he was the starting quarterback in florida. He also questioned whether tibo could even makes a team. I just don't see how he makes the team or urban and he's a really good coach he he's been historically great college but i just don't know he has to earn a spot and he's given a spot. That's gonna cause a big problem because players weren't have a chance to win and again to me just putting on my lens of a general manager and roster construction if you're not a starter in the nfl with only forty six players dressing you have to play special teams so my question. is tim. tibor thirty four years old going to cover cover kicks that remains to be seen. Now if he doesn't earn it does a totally different discussion. But i don't think you could sign him and say hey. He definitely has a spot on this team.

I totally agree that you know the stick, the type of stick that being you should be focused on and not how to carry it, how to cock it and change your whole riders point of view of how you have to. Count the number when you're in the middle of A. Players having account at the same time. It. Just makes. Them. And and you know Mike when it comes to using the stick like you said, there were times you have to cut that stick up in order to show it properly to the horse. Skill enough yet see enough of it, and then sometimes you know I went through an inside Ben's once and I wish I had it in my left-hand and could've tapped him in the nose just so I wouldn't have gone through the invite then but the same situation can occur going through the outside bench where the bit no longer steamer source the bitten rain no longer stairs doors, multitude of reasons that could be a bruising doors, his mouth, and the more you pull on the left rain, the more they get out and you're less. instinctually thinking is re cocked the step tapping on the nose when you plant seeds of negative thought about using stick in jockeys mind he might get away from thinking instinctually what is the right thing to do and it could result in an accident and my whole? Thing is who's going to be liable for a job getting hurt because you put these negative thoughts of use of sticking in his mind and he goes outside fence you get. To, use property Bruno again it could. It could. It could. You know you're you well, no, we're letter your letter was. GonNa come up and then what's going to happen Your letter was beautiful. It was right to the point and you touched on every area that needed to be touched my hat's off to you and you know what they but. Again. As much as you dad, me were friends. I'm sure he's looking down and say, that's my boy. That's what am I? That you made my day. Buddy you. Guys I. I love to talk, but I've have in the middle of a training session here. Go ahead go. Now. This was perfect. I love it Mike Smith everybody and for those for those that are curious because. Tony. You're saying wow Mike Mike. Smith and and and Tony Black over over one hundred years worth of writing experience and. The total number of wins between Tony Black and Mike Smith. As of today. Ten Thousand, eight, hundred four between the two you. We've been around. Their. Budget as about sixty seventy, thousand times we been around that oval and probably hundreds of thousands of horses we've been on in the morning. Maybe you know what's maybe This. Tony Lee. This is amazing. Actually. This is really quite something you have had. Thirty three, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, four mounts. Mike Smith, thirty, three, thousand, seven, hundred, and seven. So seven thousand outs, sixty, sixty, seven, thousand, six, hundred, sixty, and seventy one. But you both have had essentially you know thirty three thousand almost exactly two, hundred miles apart two, hundred fifty and you've got five, thousand, two, hundred and eleven wins Mike Scott Fifty Five, hundred and ninety three wins your your careers. Are Really. In terms of experience, there are almost identical. Left him I'll tell you what I remember when he first started and I said I was real good friends with his dad's calling every day that a lot of conversations that we were both. So proud of Mike when he went to California and fit right in with the jockey colony but we weren't surprised with Mike has been a world class writer for a long time and he's been someone that I have total respect for and I just hope. That these organizations that try to pass rules when it comes to riders, performances starts to get started to get a sincere. I'd be s communication but sincere communication with Mike and People, liking, because it will benefit them in the long run and it will benefit the sport and right now we have to, of course, make sure that the betting public is you know accommodated, but we can't do that by putting these rules out there that just be. The enter just put out there to Schmooze the public we have to put rules out there. That really are factors. They really fit circumstances and we need people monitoring the sport that really know what they're looking at. They just didn't wear suits and ties and shiny shoes everyday. Moore's is back Samba least somebody and we have to form another ruling body with a person that works of all with the steelers that auditors Kreider performance on his back. Let's do that. You know have another only body or have someone out there. That's a can just the stewards in a way if he's not a story out of course thirties and he's a socio Stewart.
"mike smith" Discussed on Thoroughbred Racing Radio Network
"Claim. Thanks Dave. Take Care Steve Ascot everybody Tony Black standing by we gotta get I. You know I don't know how many times how many weeks in a row Tony we can talk about these whip rules but certainly Mike Smith stepping up and taking a stand and you know at. Drawing attention to the topic regarding California and the to the. R.. Be To state officials. Good Morning. Good morning, Steve Yeah, I read Mike Smith's letter and he hit on every important point that was the hit on You know it's a safety issue. It's an integrity issue when it comes the horses finish and it also becomes an issue with the paper crop that is used. So he was hitting all what hearts of these ripples which believe me that there are detrimental to the business into a jockey. And Orleans safety but we also kind of put people on notice guy who is going to be liable if you plant the seed of negative thought in a Jockey's fine, we're he allows ease with rules to overtake his instinct and what he knows ride on his back and it's not doing. So you know not reacting instinctually versus back because we planted the seed of thought about a wit role in his brain WHO's to be liable if that results in injury to that jockey who's going to be liable you're going to be the racing organization. It's authorities commission. There's a liability at somebody's going to have to Be On notice and this letter that he wrote kind of places out at. and it seems to me that in many cases, liability lawsuits get more done. to put people on notice that they might be subjected to one. Then it does all the screaming and yelling does about a rule like this. The only sad part of it is somebody get hurt before that he people who implement. These rules are being liable for an injury to a writer and a horse it's ridiculous. The bottom line is you just need people up there monitoring the race monitoring a jockey's performance and use of the whip that knows something about riding a horse. You can't put a blanket rule out there. That fits every circumstance that a horse subjects a rider do in his performing on that as a jockey that horseback I can cited incident and it was better years ago my first incident of going through the inside fence at Pimlico and I. I had been my right hand and is usually closer to the outs insight bent. Then you are to the outside France, because you know you're running on the inside of a racetrack not on the outside. So there was this horse and I'm never forget his name last Les T. was in the Seventies. He decided going into as Paul was gonNA, take a shortcut and go through the thirty eighth call. I didn't have a chance to get my stick over into my left hand. 'cause you carry it right in and he went right through the inside bench PIMLICO and I've done my teeth out and landed in the cement garden that used to be a debris as for maybe still there and never forget the blues and scrapes and cuts. I had all over my body and And it was that day I said Jesus was trying to boat. I would have had enough time you know to get this took over was in my right hand and do one thing and you know what you do horse that is uncontrollable with the bit and the rains At Lot of times what will save you in a save me from going through the outside bench was your stick is cocked you. You wave at them, and then at that does they don't respond the way it Adam your region you smack him in the soft muzzle of their nose because there is a sensitive area and the WHO has stopped trying to get out the bit is controlling because you created a a Jewish in that they don't like a stinging to the left to the right side of their house. And data you need to do with a cock stick when you're telling Jonky can't caucus did and the only reason you're saying, well, he can snap on the shoulders much want because you can't tell when a stiffer gun car if he snapping him on the shoulder and they feel that that's not granny That's nothing is going to be engine to a horse by snapping on his shoulder with a non cock stick, but you have to be able to calculate how do you show the stick really really show it with an uncoxed stick on top of that when it comes to switching sticks. Usually when you're switching to your left hand, your stick is cop and you pull it right grow. The one thing that they're all missing me racing jurisdictions and the commission. If you want to pass rule that says you must use the gentle touch three sixty that Ramon moving the whereas has. been. Experimenting with and it has a good stick out there. It's being widely used. That's what you have to. Enforce that enforce that it's being widely used bank show. Every jurisdiction uses it but don't come up with his BS you can't walk it. Don't come up because I'll hit you with sleeve and my my my my saw touch sixty will be caught and you'll say man that makes a lot of noise bertone. Could. I really liked this deck, but this is all BS and his letter was right to the point and I don't know if it's going to serve any purpose and you know the other thing we discussed jogging basically stereotyped as little dummies that don't know anything except putting a leg on each side of divorce, and they've yet to come to a jockey's a be a part this discussion with the commission be a part of it but they don't do that because we're stereotyped as little dummies at the only thing we know how to do is put boots white pants on and funny Lookin' College.

I'm not sure if If everybody knows that have how how famous he is and I'd interacted with Dr k before actually in the number of conference and educational settings where I got no chance to hear some of his abbreviated or bridge Lectures on the history three anti making. Yeah it's pretty fascinating stuff. I'm sort of curious. Maybe when I retire I'll come up the Audi the history of course it just. I'm very curious anyway. The the the Let's see here I.

So that'll be a fun segment after some pretty serious stuff stuff right off the bat and let's start with my good friend. Mike Smith good friend of this show. Certainly former host of the of this Be called open mic. Now the Dave Graham Show on WD WD EV FM and am. Mike thanks for coming in good morning. Good Morning Dave. And thank you for having and Let's let's get right to this This discussion that that really got launched last week by seven days around the problems at the chicken and regional correctional facility. A lot of these things are not new. I mean I think there had been some previous this coverage in years past about some of these issues all the not quite as I don't think focus stand Pauline's rarely put in a lot of good Good journalistic shoe letter on historic talked a lot of people and And really pretty pretty well nail the story. I thought what are your what are your. What was your initial reaction on seeing it? Well when I saw it I said look if we need to when I first saw this about eight days ago and I'll talk about what we did and what we've done since the those eight days. I said we have a problem. That was my initial response. We have a problem. It's our responsibility. My responsibility ability to fix this problem. That means if we have to change Systems will change them if we have to hold people. Accountable will to hold people accountable. That was my initial reaction. So you know there's been a lot that's gone on in the last eight days and I just like to sorta outline outline what's been happening Last Friday I met with the Attorney General's office and his team along with Vermont State. Police I wanted to ensure that. Ah that anything that I do. doesn't interfere hinder. What's an ongoing criminal? Investigation at the Chipman Regional Correctional facility ability so I do want to express my thanks and appreciation for the Attorney General's as poor. I want to thank my thanks and appreciation to the Vermont State Police Commissioner Michael Shirley and in all talk about the. US Attorney's office too. I WANNA thank. Thank them Everybody and the State Attorney's office inches and county I wanted. Everybody has been very cooperative. As I've sort of launched into this in the last eight days I've I have met with the US Attorney's office And to explore their involvement in assistance in this investigation. I think it's important Morton that we have and I've said this publicly that we have an independent entity outside of state government To conduct an investigation of the Chippenham CECILLIA perhaps even the entire correction system as well to make sure that the rights of employees and the rights of inmates are not violated and they are protected elected. I've set up a mechanism Outside the Department of Corrections and the Agency of Human Services. I've set in progress the mechanism. We're still working on that for employees and inmates to report misconduct retaliation and retribution or coercion. I think it's important at that. There are avenues right now. You know employees animates can take within the correctional facility within the agency. But I think it's I think it's important important that we have avenues that go outside of the agency. Those are hotlines We have one set up for employees. Now we're looking for a place to house house outside the agency An inmate hotline. There is a current inmate hotline but it goes to the Department of Corrections. I want to change that in terms of where reports. I'm also Setting up And it has just started this morning. A timber temporary move. Where the Deputy Commissioner Corrections Judy? Hentgen Will move has moved to the secretary's Office Right outside my office. Her responsibilities as will be to oversee the operations at Chinon regional correctional facility and the superintendent. That facility will report to Judy Judy was selected By me for this assignment. Because she's relatively new to the position you've started at the end of February and and she has served mostly outside corrections during her career in state government she had a lengthy career in the state and is an attorney. So I thought that was because There are things that because the the chicken and Correctional Center. Is I gotta get the name right. Children Regional Correctional Centres. It's not the foresees anymore. Like we we we you and I remember reminiscent of previous names right Because the Chippenham him facility as part of an overall correction systems there are some operations. I just couldn't separate out Those include you know escape inattentive escape escape evacuation facility lockdowns Life threatening activation of the special teams in in and the and or the use of restraint for more than two hours those will be coordinated with the Department of Corrections but for the short term temporary basis. The facility will will report to the secretary's office also. If we we have a sexual harassment training I want to reintroduce sexual uh harassment training and obviously from the article. They're Paul did I think what well I know. We have to look at whether that's been effective. And how do we make it more effective. I have conducted First round of interviews with the Commissioner Superintendent that facility to try. Try to figure out because Paul's article and we shouldn't shy away from that you. We should congratulate Paul. You know as as an agency for bringing running for bringing this all to light. It didn't happen overnight it. It's something that we wanna fix if it's a cultural problem let's fix is the cultural problem. But what what I think what. I what I WANNA do is find out from the commissioner and the superintendent who have been in their positions relatively short periods of time. What do they know about these things? And what did they do about them. I'm we're doing some interviews right now. So here are the next steps. David that that I That that I WANNA do will continue to interview corrections officials and individuals and provide information in that could benefit sort of the review. That I'm doing will look across the country to make sure we find the appropriate third party entity or entities it could be multiple entities has to Complete an external independent review We will continue to coordinate with our partners the the Attorney General's office in the US US Attorney US Attorney's office. In as I said Last week I need to get a report on this review to the governor For for the recommendations of ours sort of outlined. Some of the recommendations are going to be in there. We're going to you know I think it's important to have an independent external review of our of our operations operations It sounds like we may end up leaning for the first time really toward a a sort of standing external review process For or the Department of Corrections or at least for the for the chicken and facility in and and all of that is we've had for a long time places like the prisoners rights office. We've had the remark protection and advocacy We have had external Organiz organizations Within the state that I I sort of assumed I think a lot of people did have been the ones that would be in the role of keeping really writing. Heard on this kind of situation have they fallen down. I don't think so I you know what I'm looking at is making sure that we don't have a culture internally that that that can be invisible by the way that That needs to be changed. That is that is something that we need to do. The more by the way the more more people that are looking at the operations corrections and I think corrections When we talk corrections there's a whole sort of sea change in how we look at corrections corrections especially women's prisons and how we look at Corrections if you remember about fourteen years ago when I had this When I had this job previously we had what was called the incarcerated women's project? What we were seeing was we had to handle women prisoners a little bit different than we handled male prisoners in? It was pretty successful. I may reincarnate that program which surrounds people would not only sort of the punitive aspects of of but the social aspects of. How do you correct This issue so people do not re-offend and How do you provide support mechanisms? uh-huh throughout okay great call from rich from Huntington Good morning rich morning. Good Morning Gentlemen Obviously we have a broad cultural problem going here. It's not not your average workplace prison system. Okay so we have problems with sexual harassment sexual abuse also elements of Illicit drug use as far as specifically the problem of sexual abuse either involving other staff or other or inmates Again you have to you realize. There's a uniqueness of the situation here being prison now we have generally in this country gender segregated prison facilities and and I think a lot of the problem of the sexual abuse going on specifically the problem. We have in South Burlington. I'm going to suggest. I know the people are going to have a problem with this but if I could suggest that in a women's prison probably shouldn't it be staffed exclusively by women and vice versa for the men's prisons Mike Smith. What do you think about that? I think we need to diversify our workforce I mean there are as the caller rich and high rich. I'VE NOTICED YOU'RE A. Ah I notice your name and your call before but I think we definitely need to diversify the workforce You know I can't can't remember the specific numbers but there may be eighteen women as opposed to sixty six males in the Chicken facility. I think that has that has to be more diverse in terms of what we have for workforce in there. I not only saying gender diversity but also Race diversity ethnic diversity in our correctional officers in and I think we've got to reflect more of the population that we're covering and riches right I if I really believe that there should be more diversity versity in there now whether it can be all male female that you know I'll leave that up to the lawyers. On how how they do it but I i. I agree with rich. There needs to be more diversity. The second thing is I really think we have to look at some of the employment practices that that we have..

"You know it's there. There's a whole long list list of items that get better under democratic administrations as opposed to Republican ones. And they'd never you know but the price and in what people have to do the problem is the historical context has to be repeated as often as events of today do because otherwise these people just lose sight of it and and what you're saying as true as it is but unless it's repeated every time that that somebody gets out and says oh the Democrats rats are just as corrupt as the Republicans unless something like that is actually repeated. People don't understand that you know. Listen the truth is very obvious. You know and I and it's opposite from the statement that everybody does it Here's here's one last point before we we do need to break shortly. But I I just want to say again that the One of the issue here is that the press get beat up all the time particularly from the right. I mean if you turn on Fox News which is you know. Very heavily watched cable Cable News Network out there. You constantly hear that the the left-wing media that are destroying the country or the enemies in the American people just as the President says and so on so forth. And so there's this constant drumbeat that I as we as a working reporter for more than thirty years. I I I heard all all the time and and you know when one one analogy or metaphor I would use would be safe. You're driving down a road and your the person in the front passenger seat. Let's say your spouse is harping on you all the time about driving too close to the center line. You're going to tend to drive to the right. You know you're GonNa you gotTa Start Heading over toward shoulder just to keep the peace. And just because you know you're getting this constant drumbeat of criticism of hewing too much to the center and and they were really did seem to be this concerted strategy this talk about how the press were way too liberal and all during in this era when this is happening you know there was one person in the national media who had a regular seat on on this week show on ABC who had a regular. I'M GONNA Weekly Column in Newsweek magazine. And it was the leadoff op ED writer for the Washington Post. His name was George will And and you know a major major major player in setting the opinion climate of this country was George will has George wildman mostly liberal mostly conservative. Would you say. Obviously he's a he would consider himself a conservative. I here's the headline my final comment on that. Is You know because the descriptions since you're using as part of the problem this left that's middle this right and it really doesn't hold up and people understand this and by the way the press us is made up of adults and you guys. If in the process he can't stand the heat on just like I'd say to other people get out of the kitchen but It's it's a matter of getting out there and telling people what's going on and over and over staying true to your mission and not worrying arena about who's going to be the latest name. I agree I mean you know and and I say that for the most part. I've tried to withstand EH criticism but I I'm sure that the atmosphere full of it just has to seep in occasionally Anyway Rama I gotta go. I appreciate the call and let's go to day from plainfield. What do Dave I want? First of all I wanted to tell you. I'm I'm my family's from Ukraine and I still have my parents and I still have family that lives in Krakow and family that lives in northern Iran. And I've been on the radio for thirty five years. Greg Hooker knows me Greg Seoul station and I wanted to ask you. You've been through. It said I just turn on the radio. So you've even here for thirty years. I was asking I ask everybody just questions. How many times have you said the name various Touro when you as thirty years you've been on the radio first correction? I haven't been on the radio for thirty years. I worked for thirty years more than thirty years for the Associated Press Bureau. In Montpellier mainly print out that we did ransom broadcast copy. Happy but it was mainly the work that went under my violin and so on was was all for for print consumption. So there's that I've been on the radio as regular host of this show. Oh since March or late February I guess it was a twenty eighteen so almost two years. Now it'll be my second anniversary upcoming a couple of months So let's go to your question again though. I didn't catch the name. You're asking Berry Berry Sotero. I go around asking I. I've done radio for thirty five years on the first person into my same. You understand my family's immigrants. We don't understand your country we know. My family lives in my film. Iranian Kurds Roma and They lived in Ukraine Ukraine. See people getting fused about Ukraine. I was told them my life. I was Ukrainian and No it's a big place like California and my family wandered into Ukraine from northern Iran and my oldest son by some miracle actually found. I don't know why they helped. So that's what I'm saying Ukraine's a very complex issue and I've never heard anybody. Anybody studying Alexis on Ukraine. But anyway I just go around asking I just I'm quite I'm GonNa Hurry this. Okay my answer your questions. I've never I don't I don't know this name. I don't think I've ever invented it. Okay well this is okay on this is all by by the Way Greg O..

"From the press pray and you know. Listen this isn't personal but I do think you're one of the people the blame for it along with many others who at like the The national and local press has never had a position that it's taken can on on issues throughout the history of this country. And if you go back to probably person who could be called one of the granddaddies of Modern Day Newspapers the papers. Benjamin Franklin used to actually write letters to his own paper under a pseudonym just so he could go after his political enemies without put in his own name to wait and the press has not gotten any better about this since then and even in the news coverage and if there's been one major failing or no not not one there's been multiple major feelings in the press but if the biggest one is probably the lack of trying to provide any historical context for what gets reported on on any given day and leads to this attitude that Oh this is what's happening today and nobody's thinking about well. How did we get to the point? We're this is happening today. And when you try to have that discussion. The press is absolutely incapable of getting into that discussion. BECAUSE THEY WANNA keep well. This is what this person said. This is what another person said. But there's a history behind our politics of today trump. The Republican Party is not the trump party. It's the Republican Party. Trump is part of this Republican Party. And what they've been building up over decades of time period and by the way I'll say the same for the Adama crafts because they've been such a bunch of weaklings I call them surrender monkeys that you know they built. They've helped get us to the point where we're at two you and people have to understand this is what's so important about these impeachment hearings in that over the last half decade where we've seen extreme amount amount of power gets shifted over to the executive branch of our government. We need legislative branch. And frankly I don't care if it's Against the president is it and I like or former president or against the president. I don't like we need a congress. It will reassert itself because historically they've given up so much power we we have seen a suffering because of this and when people look around and say Obama was acting like a dictator. Well you mentioned in your press he was trying to shut down the leakers big time. So Yeah Obama did have as bad sides and we never got to address it Because the Democrats and now finally we have somebody they they just push it to such an extreme. Maybe we can address. You know protecting understanding that our governments for ourselves but anyway the main point I wanna make just historical oh contacts you one caller called in about the Powell memo. You know having these historical context and presented regularly in light of today's events. Well I mean that's that's one of the reasons why I I. I think it's important to look at. The statistics related related to criminal convictions by administration over the past fifty years. This is what I'm talking about a couple of times on the show recently and And and you know and I think you see I have a very good friend who said to me repeatedly over the last couple of years both sides do it. They're equally corrupt. And and if you look at criminal criminal convictions and and again. I chose that category not indictments not not charges made by people. But this is an independent judiciary right either. The person pleading guilty and admitting they did something wrong or or an independent judiciary the courts determining that. They've done something wrong and it's more than a hundred to ten And you can look at the economy's I I mean I don't care how you want to measure it. You look at any part the economy whether it's national deficit National Debt Wall Street returns.

"Official word from. CBS News about their plans their coverage plans for this week and it looks like tomorrow Wednesday Wednesday and Thursday the three days of the impeachment hearings upcoming Get to be really riveting stuff I think. Especially when Gordon Silent is testifying about his Phone call thinks restaurant and Keith to president trump and several other really interesting witnesses upcoming as well and some of them some including Mr Sunland he of course is the Ah Embassador to the European Union. Who got himself involved in some of the Ukraine dealings earlier this year And we'll have some important stuff I think to say providing he's truthful and so on Anyway these hearings are going to be broadcast live via. CBS On wd next three days all three three days starting at nine. Am and let's see. CBS is talking about them going into the afternoon. Each occasion I think that means means yeah. It looks like it. Looks like that means that the Dave Graham show is gonNA take a break but That's okay I gotta get a painting project on at home so we will We will Maybe get some of that done this week and one moment. Pardon me we Continue into our final hour of the program this morning. I'm one of the folks to weigh in here about what they heard last week. From from Mr Taylor Mr Ken on Wednesday to State Department officials William Taylor now the current Sort of acting ambassador in Ukraine. I think I think official titles Shares of the fair or something like that which basically means he's in charge of affairs as they sometimes throw some French at you and that diplomatic core but the Mister Taylor was testifying along with George Kenton of the State Department official on Wednesday Friday very interesting stuff with Marie Ivanovich the former the former Ambassador to the To cave to Ukraine and she was ousted from that job back in May She says after a sort of a smear campaign launched against her and carried out by a A Rudy Giuliani that president. Trump's personal lawyer and She was very compelling witness. I thought on on Friday. I mean I was watching with the hearings and boy it struck me that the The Democrats that have sort of prosecution here in the House could not have asked for a better witness She was poised careful and it was on the moments when she seemed to be invited or had an opportunity. This kind of go out on a limb him and Perhaps say some things which were more speculative or more critical she resisted. She was just the facts Ma'am and it was Quite an impressive impressive performance by Murray Ivanovich And as I mentioned the hearings resume tomorrow. Nine o'clock each day on broadcasting live here on WD Dav And I'm curious to know we got about twenty minutes to go here and they've Graham show and I want to open the phone lines and ask you listeners out there to tell me what you make of what happened last week. What you expect to hear this week And the phone number here in Waterbury two four four one seven seven seven. The toll free number is one one eight seven seven to nine one eight two five five Is this whole thing a sham. Do you think it's just basically a democratic Life performance playacting here in trying to gene outrage where none is deserved at Cetera. A toward this president. Obviously he's not had been the favourite of most Democrats in Congress or or at large in the country in the last three years that he's been in office and so maybe maybe that's the best way to view thing. This is just somebody saw an opportunity to watch what they hoped would be the final fatal attack against against this presidency and That's certainly something we hear from a lot of commentators on the in the more conservative media out there And so I'm curious to know what folks think about about all of this Once once again two four four one seven seven seven or one eight seven seven to nine one eight two five five Meanwhile you know it's it's interesting when something like impeachment hearings are going on that how the news becomes dominated by. Hi this one sort of narrative but Other stuff has been happening and Other you know some media there are some reporters who aren't assigned to cover these areas. They you gotta figure out something else to do. One thing and outfit called Marketwatch did they. Actually went and looked at some of the economic indicators. As I mentioned this briefly back around the top of the hour I think but I think it bears looking at a little more carefully and the The market watch piece especially especially was talking about you know looking at the performance of the economy since president trump came into office. He is talked many many times about how it is the the strongest economy ever. And it's a truly remarkable thing that he's been able to do with the economy a lot of a lot of President trump supporters are are buying that and and And they really They're really calling this his strong suit etc And they think that his is the the trade disputes with China are going to end up being being a good thing for the US economy and trying to reverse some trends that the that the In our in our trade situate our foreign trade situation the market watch which is an online publication of looks looks at At the economy at the markets. I think you you would understand from its name has been doing some analysis on economic conditions and Now one thing that you've got to say that the the stock market the Dow Jones Industrial Hit A new record. High on Friday surpassed the twenty eight thousand bark. That's that's a very very strong performance. And if that is the the sole measure of of the economic performance in the United States of America. You gotTA say boy. Things are booming German and But then there are other other issues in the economy's well For instance How how are we doing on providing jobs for folks and Here's a His really looking at a very interesting chart in Market Watch The the job performance formats here. This chart indicates is following the trend. That was in place in the mid teens of this decade and of course we had it different president up through up through twenty sixteen and According to this market what watch chart there's a line here for Reported number of jobs obscene millions and number of jobs if the previous trend had continued the previous trend of course being the one that existed up through two thousand sixteen and the line signed for the previous trend. Continuing is actually slightly higher. Just a bit higher Not not remarkably so but Then the line for actual job performance points since two thousand sixteen job growth performance. I should say and so that that to me is quite interesting. It says that that This is not really been A giant transformation of our economy is as some people have tried to paint it including. I think it's fair to say the President of the United States Donald J trump and You you know I I. I think that you've got a measure that also against federal spending in the efforts to stimulate the economy that the president is put in place The the big tax cuts at the end of two thousand seventeen Were it was said designed to stimulate job growth in the country It looks like we could have done without them. Frankly and And the country would have been just about where it is in terms of actually a little better in terms of job growth. So I don't know I think that there is some some reasonable symbol skepticism. There I have another another area where I wanted to explore a little bit but I'm GonNa take a phone call here from Rama. I Rama from Williamstown. Good Morning. Hey Good morning if I had a trillion dollars that I could just borrow and throw out into I economies. It would look look like a trillionaire wouldn't I I. That's it's interesting. You bring that up. Because that's exactly the point. I wanted to get the next is that is that normally. See The old style Keynesian economics the government. uh-huh spends a lot of money when the economy's doing poorly I mentioned this on the show. Pre listen closely. I'm sure you've heard it. And and here the the government the chief you spoke to the government the president of the United States is telling us the economy's booming more than it ever has before in American history. So why do you need a trillion dollars worth of stimulus. He allies anyway. That's all I mean. Basically that's that's what he does is is live. So you know I. It's it's what it is it something helping people. I think are finally coming to an understanding and I would look for to him actually having some courage in his life for a change in showing up in front of the a House Committee for the impeachment hearings so he can be questioned under oath. The one well Oh you listen now. He's not the one that started already. Did all remember this started decades ago and this is really the point I wanted to get to. I was making a semi humorous. I hope reference to Peter Welch his comments last week. Actually actually the Jim Jim Jordan reference. But go ahead. You're not interested in their cutesy little comments decades ago. But you know listen. This all started decades ages ago. But what I really call Dope Abou was a bit about the press. You've been talking about earlier. And and how the press started doing different coverage over the decades each and started trying to put in this phony you know we gotta give both sides equal airtime and how it and it didn't really work out that way and there seems just to be this constant push by people.

"The sort of the atmosphere about government has changed in those times That time period the tone is different in that and it will get to my philosophy here in a minute but the tone is that I see the tone shifting to government is the enemy and and I don't believe that I believe there is a proper role for government to intercede into people's lives to to make their lives better or to protect people in the state of Vermont. And you know that's why I'm I thought this position originally was so rewarding morning. That's why I am so grateful to have this position again because look in earlier in my life I have been homeless i. I haven't been out on the streets But I I didn't have a home I've been broke You know in my younger year my High school year I would I would say I was rowdy as As you look at the various things that I used to do I used to act out in dangerous and unproductive ways but there was always a friend there to help me to guide me to take me under their wing into help me get through those times. I've you the agency just like that just that friend for people. That don't have the friends that I had an able to really help people and I view the agency all all three thousand five hundred of those people that are in the agency as willing are have the same sort of mindset that I do how to help people and move forward wardhaugh be that friend and move forward and the people that I've met both then and now they're dedicated to doing that. I think that is That is something that really Rewarding to me when you hear that The government is the enemy kind of stuff. Do you feel like that. There's any any any is at an echo or trickle down from the famous comment that the scariest nine words in the English language are I'm from the government and I'm here to help at Ronald Reagan quote The one thing that I I don't think so I think a lot of people I think. Social media is part of it that there is is this sense that you can criticize anything and do anything And you know part of our business my old business. Your Business is is to evaluate various public policy pro- programs to do various things to to in some cases criticized but it's gone beyond a different level than I I remember. I guess that's the tone change that that that I'm talking about it's gone to a level You know where we were happy. You too have a nation full of criticize irs but not a nation full of doers. And I think you know I really respect the people that are out there doing things. It's the very hard thing. So like the people that worked for the agency the DCFS an apartment for children and families. came in for some criticism. Just a couple of weeks ago long long. Piece in seven days for instance about the OPIOID epidemic. End Did you think that was fair. You know one of the things that I think we have to look. Do we do things completely right. No but do we do on a daily basis is the preponderance of what we do. Good for Vermont Monitors and I think the answer to that is yes. For example there was a a death of county of where mother was Allegedly murdered heard and her two kids as infant and toddler were in that apartment building for a couple of days before the woman was found and it was RDC RDC F- workers that went in there. Took care of those kids made sure they had medical care made sure that they were placed with a relative and they spent the entire our weekend almost twenty four seven making sure those kids were were okay. Those are the stories that don't get into the news but those are the stories that happen every day. And that's it's something that I think is Is Things we lose. Focus on as we. That is tough work Just it's amazing other times flyer we got about at six minutes left here Mike but we have a caller will go quickly to Michael from Barry Town. Good Morning Michael. Good Morning. Good Morning Mike Wall. Since I've talked with you you good morning Michael. I admit that I do not know enough to evaluate this current debate on health insurance and the idea of Medicare for all if structured so that literally. Everybody is protected protected for for everything that they have to deal with. You have an opinion as to whether that's the best way go here. It seems like whatever we've tried has not worked worked well and I can't compare apples for apples and any of this. I don't know enough. Well well let me let me try to answer the question. Perhaps without getting into the debate of Medicare for all. Because I'm not as familiar with that debate as perhaps I should after three weeks but three weeks ago. Yeah so and I'll give you a sort of a general philosophy. I think we have two choices in healthcare. Do nothing or continue to watch. Healthcare costs climb uncontrolled or at least do something and not worsen the condition but do something to attempt to control healthcare costs and When we talk about controlling healthcare costs I think you really have to look at it holistically and how we receive care? We a half to control healthcare costs. I don't care if it's Medicare for all or if it's private insurance if we don't if we don't control healthcare costs then we're all sunk sunk in terms of Of where we're going. So what does this mean when I say control healthcare costs it means to me concentrating on primary care. It means per van of care means looking at the patient in treating a patient before they get sick with preventable diseases. Such as A heart conditions heart disease Aziz Diabetes it means reimbursing provider for those activities in a way that doesn't That concentrates concentrates on preventive medicine and and doesn't reimburse them for how they how many tests that they do. How many procedures that they do you like the all payer model you know I? It's it's still an experiment. I think there's been some Medicaid budgeting that has made it predictable predictable because of I like to call it the all you know. I don't like here. I like to call it. The accountable care model same idea. We're just hour's discrepancy but all paired it just goes over people's heads accountable means that he is that. Somebody is looking at accountable. So has it made Medicaid budgeting more predictable. Yes has it Made more providers that are joining. Yes however One care for example apple needs to put more accountability into the system and they need to tell people what they're doing in order to do that. So that's That's a short answer to a long quest. Yeah boy and say this is why we're going to have you back Mike Smith if you're willing and at a later date to talk about a lot more of this stop because So much going on human services just quickly in the last couple of minutes here your thoughts. On the justice reinvestment efforts the The correction system really trying trying to cut the number of inmates and Do we need to do more of that. I think so and I think we there's a couple things that we need to do We we need to look at our correctional facilities. This was fourteen years ago. Dave Our correctional facilities from an infrastructure perspective were pretty Rough shape rough shape. aped they're still the same now. We have to address how we're going to Move Corrections in the future. Bring people home and House those people I would think in fourteen years Ibn rougher shape because they are eventually I mean that that population frankly is going to give a beating of a building beating. Don't you think I I do. I've been to northwestern Western I've been to new poor. I plan on visiting all our correctional facilities and get a better evaluation. Better knowledge of what's going. I thought you were going to say the biggest is changing your between two thousand five and now is the impact of the opioid epidemic but I wonder. Do you getting a handle on that. I think we're starting to to look at. It was starting back fourteen years ago and we started the deter program for example and those sort of things heroin was was rampant in the state eight. And we're trying to address it opioids in a broader sense. Now I've had An impact on the state. I think the hub and spoke in what we've done in that and try to treatment and it's a it's a it's a systematic Attack that we have to do from education to rehabilitation and to enforcement as we move forward. There's so much on your plate Mike Smith I I remember talking with Al Gore Bay once your predecessor and he was maybe having a rough day or something but he just looked like he was really it was a struggle and and And I think that it's man what a what a job and I admire anybody who's willing to take it on as thank you so much for coming in Mike Smith the new New and old secretary of Human Services And we'll have you back Unfortunately we're about out of time for now now but Thanks.

"Our second hour here on Monday morning folks Going to have a really really I guess I'm excited about and just a few minutes Mike. Smith's going will be joining me. He's the secretary of the newly returned to Secretary of Human Services for the state of Vermont and one special aspect of mice careers. He used to sit where I'm sitting right now. It was a host of the Dave Graham. Show wd EV. For for two or three years old. We'll get these specific dates when Mike joins being just a moment but Wanted to you. Go first to Steve Futterman. CBS News we hear his voice a lot on the top of the hour and bottom of the hour news breaks here on wd and it's really great to get talked with with him. One on one Steve Good Morning. Thanks for joining me. Great to be with you. Hey let me check in with you. I just wanted to kind of get a preview of coming distractions or whatever recall that The impeachment hearings resume tomorrow. They go Tuesday Wednesday Thursday this week. That's right there will be eight witnesses testifying this week and up. I think they're going to be interesting. Witnesses of I thought last week. Catch some interest as well but these may actually be more interesting in the fact that some of these people may talk about about more firsthand dealings. They had with some of the issues. Involved you may recall that one of the Main things the Republicans tried to show so was that many of these people did not have first-hand connections with any of the dealings many of these things were second hand And they brought it up quite a bit. We have people closer to the top. I think this week and we'll see what happens. I mean obviously we know the tactics that are being used by both sides and We'll see what they can can do. Will there be anything new coming out. That's hard to say Much of the information that we heard last week was things that hit emerged before through either syrup leaks or the transcripts that were released from the closed door hearings. I the the the one one witness they seem to be generating a lot of headlines. Already one of the upcoming with Gordon Silent. He was on the he was on a on the phone with the president. We're told From a restaurant in Kiev correct correct. That's right now one thing that's interesting about him is that he's over to Europe while to Change Your testimony at times it may sound strange To your knee me but you are allowed to change your testimony. He has changed his testimony from the first time he appeared before the closed door hearing he adjusted his testimony only to revise it. Just say well on this issue I was on and the thing that he was basically talking about that he adjusted for was. Did you ever hear the president talk about a quid pro quo. Initially he said no and then later on he seemed to indicate that he has heard a quid pro quo offered by the president so that could be just went and brushed up on his Latin. I don't know but Oh yeah did you ever write I. Now I know what a quid pro quo is. I can but he also didn't mention even even even in the second round The July twenty sixth phone call from the restaurant. Whoa yes like? We did not even know about that until last week. So maybe he wasn't even questions about that so interesting for them as well. I think you got a question about you know. was there anything else you needed to tell us. Certainly I mean he got a pretty good invitation. You should whether whether he's not taking it as as he might have is going to be open to any culpability. I don't know we just have a couple of minutes left. I wanted to run a theory by and see what you think about it. I've I've often wondered whether this idea of getting dirt on Joe Biden or hundred Biden would be worth so you know basically risking your presidency over. I mean it just strikes me as pretty right pretty small price. Yeah looking back at it. Obviously not I mean Different people different ways. There are people who think it's I've heard. Republicans who support the president say. It's not such a big deal what he was doing doing your allow. You know. It's all part of the the the the though the gamesmanship of campaigning. The fact that you had a foreign country involved though and and the fact that some people feel that that was what was being offered. There you're going to get the military aid the the military eight the US. If you help us that bothered lots of people but of of course looking back and it probably not the best idea. This and Could the bigger prize slot problems. I mean I just I get this question. Could the the bigger prize really have been making Putin happy. Because imagine if you if you end up cutting off the military Ukraine that would fit right in this pattern of. There's is an hour Russian flag flying over a former. US based in Syria NATO's been greatly weakened from the very beginning of the trump administration just by his comments and his sort of you know very apparent lack of lack of support. I mean in so many ways. He's done things which might be seen as as essentially pleasing Putin and I'm wondering if this could have been part of that same pattern. Oh no definitely I mean when you have dealings with Ukraine yes that can sometimes get involved but I I'm not sure that this was one of those things where He was talking about the nine. The military to to fleas prove obviously Putin with pleased if he didn't get the aid Putin you would think the way putting up his not want a strong Ukraine. He wants to control Ukraine. We we know that. But I'm not sure that I I don't think that necessarily we've seen any indication that that was necessarily the driving gene points for this remember. Giuliani was talking about almost openly. They wanted to get dirt and unbinding was very very open about it at some points. I don't again. I don't know if that was really what he was doing there. Many times what the president has done has been interpreted by his critics and even supporters sometimes as exactly what Putin wants and it's not really in the US interests but it's in a Putin interests. Yes if this it happened if he denied the claim the Yes. There would be some Putin more. But I don't think we've ever heard anything to suggest that that was really the the main reason he wanted to possibly not deny the eight. It did seem that he did want to get some jurors or continue the investigation on the man who at that time and they continue Oughta be because the biggest obstacle to win a reelection if he gets the nomination all Steve Futterman CBS. I I WANNA thank you so much for joining me this morning. I I think I've used up your promise time so I'll let you go but let's do this again. You have that sound hearings. Pollini are very fast fascinating. I'm old enough to remember the Watergate hearings scale and I think if you approach them in the The the right way I agree with the president. You can district person still very interesting hearing well actually one last question on the hearings. Yeah do you know what time they start the next three days. I believe they're going with the start as I'm not one hundred percents believe they're gonNA start like nine eight am nine am. Well thanks for telling me. Because I'm actually trying to figure out the impact on my little radio radio program here which usually goes from nine to eleven so it's just a little bit logistical question to wrap it up with a thanks for. Thanks again Steve. Ten and they went to nine. Nine dollar hold me to that. But that's my guess okay. Great thanks Nice. You had next gas is. I've already advertised a couple times on the program.

It was called so And he did a really credible job with it and I. It's it's great to have him back. I might and if you got a couple of pointers and ask them one or off the air in a few minutes. So what do I need to improve my quit Instead of we'll we won't talk about that on the ends then we'll talk about this really important the job Mike has Heading up the the largest agency in state government and Mike. Thank you so much for joining me this morning David. It's a pleasure to be here. Dave I really appreciate the opportunity and nothing. Nothing S- well daynuss board has changed.

All sorts of things I tell people I take no credit or blame blame for any the interior decorating his office. Because my two hours a day just come and go and I and I really have not had time to paint the place or anything so it would hold your right anyway. Mike You are This is the second tour of duty as Human Services Secretary you. You had the job under the governor Douglas. Back in the mid I part of the first decade of this Millennium Right. That's right in two thousand five. I was originally. The secretary of Administration went over to Secretary Human Services for a year and then came back as secretary of administration and and it was I say this David I I mean not many people get the opportunity that that I have gotten an I. I feel blessed in order to get this opportunity and I thank governor Scott for pointing me because back then it was the and still is to this day. One of the most rewarding experiences that did I ever had is being secretary of Human Services and during that year I was there. We did a lot of things global commitment for example some of the things that are still in place place global commitment. We looked at blueprint for health. We we did vital That year we did the catamounts health. We did a lot of things that were very very interesting. And I just feel Privileged to be back. That's great now global commitment. Of course that was a healthcare scare Adam as well to refresh on what that was. Basically what happened is that the state looking at its Medicaid program in how it it was organized was projecting an over six hundred million dollar deficit global commitment allowed us to get a little bit more cap space. What is called a Cap At the same time allowed US flexibility. In how we could spend it and we in in doing that. We were able to eliminate the a six hundred twenty million dollar deficit. I remember hearing some legislative testimony wants about cap space and I was thinking to myself or are we talking about an NBA payroll i. It's as complicated as that. Believe me. It is complicated is that it is really interesting that some of the issues. I'm I'm dealing with now. Are the same issues that I was dealing with fourteen years ago. Including we're going to have to renegotiate this global commitment waiver which has been negotiated negotiated one time before. But now it's coming up for renewal in twenty twenty one. Wow Okay so that's that's GonNa be a big project Tell me broadly sadly what else has changed about a variety of human services posture in the last fourteen years. Let me The tone has changed. I think two into things if I answer your question directly to things one well actually three things the size of the The let may start with their the size of the agency. I mean it's three three thousand five hundred employees. That's relatively the same when I was here. The budgets bigger two point. Five billion billion dollars has The same departments the was it. What was the budget previous? You know I can't remember it. I think it was like one point seven. Maybe one point a commensurate with inflation. I think health care is really Taken some of that Ah You know growth in into consideration. I WanNa talk about that in in just a minute So you know the department. The agency has six departments Dale DCF director Department of Corrections Mental Health Health and then diva which is the Medicaid portion of of it where there has been a lot of growth in that area and if I had to say one thing that's changed back fourteen eighteen years ago. Thirteen years ago it was fourteen years ago it was healthcare was probably thirty. Five forty percent of my time Now it's probably fifty eighty five to fifty percent of my time to fifty five percent of my time so that has changed the other thing Dave that I think has changed. I just just..

Three Wins in 4 Years Is a Record
"James Good Morning. Good Morning Steve. Thanks for having me on hope your weekend. Well it did. It did and I thought I saved I wrote I write down as many selections. It's always tough for Breeders Cup because then the paper gets all gets a little a little sloppy and sure enough here. I'm looking now and yeah I do have it. Actually there we go there we go home. You were a Vino guy and and bricks and mortar and and then spun to run so yeah your share of winners Too Key around I thought was on higher power. Though I didn't have you know I got you written down for Dino. I took higher power stirred Flavian Pratt. What's up on them? I'll tell you play the Heidi wrote one favorite Donna Duluth below she. The brewers Juke juvenile given up Phillies runner-up but he had a win. had four seconds and fourth earners. I thought that was a really a great performance by him and You know he has the Kentucky Derby win on his resume junkies like have that really just A good showcase for an upcoming star in our rank agreed and and I tweeted on Sunday. I've discussed this a couple of times this week. His record is stunning. And he's got people would say. Oh He's only got three wins. WHOA WHOA three wins? Thirty eight mounts and this is only his fourth year as fourth year riding his sixteen seventeen eighteen nineteen at-bats. Ah But another fourteen in the money finishes and then a handful of fourths and fifths I mean the percentage is frightening. I mean considering considering the level of competition really outstanding and he gives he gives every virtually every horse. If he's got horse to work with he gives them a chance. It's definitely and you know I mean I think Santa Anita and hosted the Breeders Cup eight times previously and and and he was writing a lot of california-based debased horses and one of my takeaways was definitely that this this year's Breeders Cup with completely unlike any out in California before I mean just uh-huh it just. It really started on Friday where the first four winners had all raised it Aqueduct Belmont and by the end of it I'm you know I'm looking at it it it. If you'd looked at the charts that Saturday at at Saratoga you wouldn't be surprised to see our ad or ts in four races Castellano and Rosario win into each and then Jose or ts Manny Frank Ricardo Santana All winner races well and Joe Bravo and that's what happened. They took twelve to fourteen races and and all twelve of those horses that race in New York this year now very strong on that on that front and ah not to say that Just had the conversation with Nick. Lock about the euro's and there were there were solid efforts and solid board hits in addition to Iridescence win but The you know the and there were solid performances from west coast sources to bell. Athena's Bella Fina. At under under certain circumstances dances might have won. The united almost looked like a winner hundred yards from the wire There were there were plenty of of solid performances from every region In some cases. Look at Vino. Vino having been into California. I think counselor a lot. You fold in folding would ask. Did you know getting there early with Matali Actually Navarro to I mean in Navarro got there early with a chance. A Lot A lot of times the a Lotta Times. The juvenile turf sprang can be like locally based sources can do all your top two in that race were both based in California with Peter Miller and you the one hundred and thirty five bucks. That's right that's right. That's right his second his second in the race in three years. I'm just looking at the list to spun to run from Philadelphia. So you get you get a a regional kind of a B.. Track player are sharing sharing holiday for new. New York's thunder run actually ran in a mate. Nice at act backer. And the winner but I mean the parks and mom Sharing base at Far Hills at far hell and Maryland bred. That's a couple of times Toga. Yeah yeah everybody everybody got their Lixin. Actually when you when you kind of go through this And I'll just say I I came away. I mean granted. I thought the four big stars coming into enforces with the serious horsey. Our aspirations Bricks Mourner Corner Sister Charlie and Matola two of the four one I think it really does come down horse a year two bricks and mortar and Matola Louis. But I'm giving the edge bricks mortar. I thought it was fantastic campaign. He had been a mile or previously. Before you know getting hurt and undergoing that surgery and I like the fact that Brad Cox I mean Brown ran him. You know he never ran he. Random and six different courses six different states. You went from Florida to Louisiana to Kentucky Hockey to New York to Illinois and the California To win a mile and a half for the first time in his career so to me. He's a deserving of the year well and and driving home the point about the mile and a half for people that because they always beat all the same types and didn't stretch himself then no he did and and you know the there was even people that were incredulous about him going the mile and a half so you know that that score extra points Without a doubt yeah definitely and you know to me One of the Mike Smith that made the point After a couple Oh. He ran second on a pair of privet favorites midnight zoo in Omaha Beach. And he's made the point that he'd right like those races back because it was hard to 'cause over that track track but to me it was more so that those horses were caned on the rail going into the first turn. Blue Prize was tenth early. You know tolley Holy Arosa could be five or six minutes off the pace. But they're jocks really at. That did a great job keeping them in the clear and I really thought midnight. These to you You know continue just to be in traffic through into the far turn. And when she got out she finished great as a case I mean they the great job on on TV and other highlighting it where I think of a blueprint. It's got the jump on her because of the trip the greed and it and it it also. It should be noted for people that are you know insisting that the track nobody could close well. WHOA that's not true? which is simply me? Just look at the chart for the distaff. What do you mean nobody could close at that? Just you know Omaha. Beach closed closed In in as well came from often and others whitmore made up. I mean it wasn't going to get to the winners and the the exact pair But he closed Idiom really had down below chicken that juvenile fillies and that's when the track was absolutely at its worst deepest pissed most impossible right based on based on the figure and in fact. It's funny because yesterday. Paul Matisse was talking about how difficult Friday was to make figures and then it was echoed by Jerry Brown on His On his experts board board. Somebody brought up. Paul's conversation and Jerry also echoed that the way the track changed from the you know the middle part of the day to by the time even the the juvenile boys ran so typically you would if the juvenile of the males run more than two seconds faster than the phillies. You'll get say their way better than the nose Philly but I do think it was. It was a track getting off faster later. And I. I'm I'm not down on British idiom or Donna Boise at all even though that right they came home. I think they should be still terrific runners. And you know it's it's hard to gauge coming out of the juvenile being real adobe guy Exactly what that means going forward so into court definitely Nice Horse Court Vision You know hasn't isn't had much success at Stud but he's bread You know fire. Classic types with that pedigree of his female family has a lot of stamina influences. It just doesn't have much class. You won't find any stakes winners really in that immediate female family well your final the final takeaways. My final take away so I just you know I you know I was. I thought you know it was a tragic end McGowan crew. I mean it was just a Really hurt to see that happy at the very end After a thirteen of the Breeders Cup races have that happened in the ashtray and and racing. Definitely I think has some issues and concerns going forward. the people in the industry maybe do a better job messaging but I still remain. Optimistic is the horserace fan about the future and I was. I came away like in the Breeders Cup. I thought there was some great performances and Looking for work once again the next year very good well. We're looking forward to the action this weekend give us some thoughts about Churchill had terrific card even today yesterday and Wednesday were good and of course the Commonwealth on Saturday the feature the Grade Three Mile and a sixteenth. The three year olds on the grass. It is an absolute war. Some thoughts about what's been going on while everybody was paying attention to Breeders Cup and and we got to look forward to this weekend.

Looking Back: The 10th Anniversary of Zenyatta's Big Win
"Ten years ago two thousand nine the ten year anniversary of Kenya's unbelievable performance that day and to look back on that day and so many others is hall all the Famer. Mike Smith now on the Horse Racing Radio Network Mike. Thanks for getting up early this morning. Good morning thank you. I swear to wake up yeah I bet but it is to listen to to some of those calls you boy Xanada. Can you believe it's been ten years already and now it just it doesn't seem like Oh you know he was so so special. It just seems like it was yesterday. Every time you think about her it'd be honest with I know you're going to spend a lot of time talking talking about over the next several weeks if you haven't done so already but when you think back on that performance in the Breeders Cup classic that day at Santa Anita what are some of the first thing that come to mind for you you know I've been involved in a lot of a lot of incredible races but man that was one that it was just different different It's hard to describe as something he had to. He had to witness. You know you had to have been there to understand how how special it was that they in the you know just the way the crowd reacted in. She went on for like a fifteen to twenty minute ovation. They just kept kept on it. Kept on cheering for you know it was it was pretty incredible though I think it will go down even think even breeders couples as one of the top five breeders cups of all time yeah. I don't think there's any doubt is she's. He's starting that run that day and beginning to to lengthen her stride and gained ground but what's that feeling like for you is is it as a guy who's been aboard so many top horses you know. I I literally turned into a fan about the eightfold when I knew once she got out she got you know moving forward and running. I pretty much knew she gets there. She had it she had every time never have that sound so I became a fan about the pool and it was just an all her just cheering for myself to be honest with that was writing there. Is that your thompson yacht a moment or whether others she yeah every every every moment with her was amazing but yeah you'd have to say that that that was the one right there. He became something something bigger than than than a event tastic rate for she became an icon and a household name for sure just just one of the greats of all time and going on to be voted horse of the

Like he had kinda had last time now gray attempt in there, you not so yeah, it'd be very very curious to say back to the phones we go. John and Connecticut. John welcome to the prisoner dot com. Call show. Good to talk to you again at work today. We were we are drawn up our our derby pool. You know, we picked twenty spots and everybody throws a little money in there. And then when the draw comes out, you get your horse, but we were talking conversation came up about the jockeys, and like, Mike Smith, roadster or al-muhaya beach. You know when they make that decision. And you know course, some of the guys there said, well, I if my picks roadster he doesn't think Omaha beach could win or he picks beachings roaster of roadster can't win. And not the case that may not necessarily be true he rides allow for Baffert. So I think he's you know, he might be obligated to. Let's say John give you an example. It's funny Jude and I were talking about this during the afternoon today. There's only two guys right now. And I don't even know if that if that number would change there's only two guys right now that yeah, it doesn't really look like that number would change. Mike Smith, Jose OT's.

"Our she starved the week, presented by Stuart Morris that. Equine form presented by red rant fence as well. We'll kick the stakes action off here in race six at acworth. Tomorrow. The grade three Bayshore seven furlongs right at the base of the shoot here at the big a just a feel the five with one real long shot the five Mt travelers, but boy Jude try separating the other foreign here yet. It's a very good race. I kind of think it's really between much better and mind control, but Muccio call Paul certainly would have say in the outcome. Much better has the California speed. And I think that's a big factor especially at the seven eighths distance. He's he's a very quick horse and victory Spinoza taking them out since Mike Smith is writing in California. And I think that that's going to spell success for for much better in Bob Baffert. They're great when they ship especially with speed horse like this. It's amazing. We talked about how mount Travers and be a big price, you're leaning towards much better in mind control. I'm leaning towards Mu-chou when all of the four Muccio out the Lasix last time, it was his first start starting six months when he couldn't get to mind control, the grade one hopeful and his prior start was a big one when he broke his maiden and he's been good. He hasn't missed the board. Four has a misty. Exact four starts. I think he's going to get a good setup behind much better. I like mutual call Paul, you know, at the end of the day, much better. They I don't think Bob Baffert really knows what he wants to do it. He's running along. He's short. He's tried on a turf, you know, mind control is cutting back with a series of mile and a sixteenth in mile races. Essentially off the Kentucky Derby trail concentrate on the one races and Mu-chou Motte didn't really know what he was going to do with him originally he was much Turbie horse. And now, he's sprinting call Paul. Now is the sprinter. He they've never they tried the mile a couple of times it didn't work Jason services. Very quick to bring him back to sprints. He's a perfect four foreign races seven furlongs shorter. He's the real danger in the funny thing is he might be the biggest price of the four so Mu-chou and call Paul for me, which will be the top pick. That'll goes race six grade. Three bayshore. Let's go to racing number seven. The gray three Excelsior mile and an eighth four the older horses. We get around the two turns in here wide open field of eight features to return of great one jockey club. Gold Cup winner to St. lover..
