Batherson helps Sens beat Red Wings 6-3 for 4th straight win

"The Ottawa senators took down the Detroit red wings 6 to three in their Atlantic division matchup. Drake batherson had two goals and Alex to break it registered three assists. It's nice we can get the power play going and then our penalty kill is pretty good. Only give up a 5 on three, which is pretty good for how many penalties we took. Goaltender cam Talbot made 29 saves in the victory. The two teams traded goals through two periods, but then Ottawa pulled away. Claude Giroux, Tyler Mott and Austin Watson all tallied in the final frame to force the decision in favor of the senators. With three on the power play and two short handed, 5 of Ottawa 6 goals came via special teams. I'm Jeremy cake over.

"Overall, really? I'll ask you about another one that you guys have. How cool is channel maker? Oh, the coolest. Yeah. What a great servant to the barn he's been. I think he's won like four grade ones or something like that. I want to champion ship, you know, obviously eclipse award champion. He's competed in the breeders cup like every year since he was like a two year old. And he keeps on winning. He's won two out of three this year and the third in the one race he didn't win him missed the break. So yeah, just a cool horse and he kind of just kind of keeps looking good and training well as the years go on. So they don't make them like him too often. No, you know, this kind of speaks to the incredible success of your father and his career, but you pick those 5 horses, and that's not easy to do with all the greats that have come through that operation. But the names that you didn't choose, you know, there's plenty, but ascena and close hatches and Paradise creek and the late in Ron the Greek and phrase and I mean, the list goes on and on and on about all the greats that have come through that barn. Yeah, like I said earlier, I mean, the support that my dad has had through the years can't be overstated. He earned everything, he's gotten like sold a couple pigs to buy his first racehorse when he was a kid. So he came from pretty humble beginnings. And yeah, without the horses, what are you going to do? So without those horses, you know, he's not in the Hall of Fame. And yeah, that's all there is to be said. Yeah. I remember him telling the story of when he joined me on this show and he's told me when I stopped by the barn. There were times when he was getting started that he couldn't get stalls at certain racetracks because his horses weren't good enough. And then all of a sudden, a few years later, he's walking down the shed row and there's a champion, a champion, a grade one winner, a champion, so it's a great lesson for all young trainers that are just getting started. Yeah, without a doubt, I mean, there's it would be foolish to think there's only a few good horsemen and trainers out there. They can come from anywhere, and they have come from everywhere. You know, it's just all about getting the opportunity and capitalizing. When you get the opportunity, I think there's been people who probably have had good horses come through the barn or good clients and maybe not have capitalized on the opportunity and that was their chance. So I think it's all about timing and giving it your best shot when the chances there, really. Other than your father, if you could spend the day hanging out with one or two other trainers and pick their brain and ask them anything you wanted to. And pastor president doesn't have to be somebody who's training now necessarily. But what other trainers would you choose to spend the day with and learn from? I've always had a lot of admiration for Richard Mandela. I think he's a proper horseman. You can tell just by looking at him and seeing how he interacts with his horses that he has got a special bond with them and he truly cares about his horses and his Hall of Famer. And I just I really admire him as a person and his success and another guy who I was very, very lucky to meet was unfortunately just passed away recently with Alec head the father of Freddie head and cricket head. What an amazing man. French based race in Europe. I was able to have lunch with him a few years ago. A group of people and he was telling me all about his past Arc de Triomphe successes I'm pretty sure he won the arc as a jockey trainer owner and a breeder, which that's like a Grand Slam like no other, I would say. But yeah, just when you sit down with someone like that and think of what they've seen in their life and the success that they've had, it's pretty remarkable. And you can kind of feel it. They have a bit of an aura about them. So those are two people off the top of my head who I really admire. We said earlier that one of the characteristics that your dad pointed out that's going to make you successful is you're a student of the game. And to hear you talk Riley and throughout this entire show, you've referenced different things historically that have happened. And I think it's very important to have that dedication. If you're going to be successful as a horse trainer, you have to be, it has to be all consuming, doesn't it? It does. And I guess it just boils down to being passionate about it. You know, I could sit here and talk with you for hours about courses and past breeders cups and whatnot. It gets me going. I don't really follow any other sports. I follow golf a little bit, but it's really just horse racing. I'm at home and have family time and my wife's like looking at watching me read the TDN or DRS on my phone and she's like, can you just put it down for a few minutes? And I just say, well, this is what I'm into. I think it's so important just to have a passion for the game and that's really like anything in life. How many major successes or athletes or wonders do you see that are not passionate about what they do? So that's what I have about horse racing and I hope it turns into success down the road. Yeah, I think it will. Riley

"Kind of has that running style. That looks like he can carry on his speed. And for three great partners, a grand view, L and J and every Dobson, I mean, been fun to do well for no doubt about it. Yeah. And that's so important to those relationships that you and you talked about your dad and how he's treated his owners over the years. But those relationships are so invaluable. Yeah, I mean, my dad is always told me it's for him he's finally come to the point in his career where he is training for people that he wants to train for. People that he enjoys doing well for enjoys dealing with on a day to today basis. Good pillars of the turf. Just solid people. And that's pretty cool. And I'd love to come to a point in my career where you have a great clientele base. People who are great friends, mentors, just all of the above. So yeah, it's fun to win with your Friends, no doubt. Yeah, one of the people instrumental talking about owners in getting your dad's career off the ground and taking him to new heights was Alan Paulson. Do you ever spend time talking with him and asking him about what that relationship was like? Yeah, he's pretty open about telling me about that relationship. I think mister Paulson was very much a businessman. I think he started the Gulf Stream plane Gulf Stream aviation company. So he was very successful and it sounded like he was pretty not stern, but a serious guy and. It was fun for my dad to work with him because he was a bit of a life mentor for him. And they had so much success together, not only cigar, but phrase, Athena, aegina, et cetera and yeah, I mean, it was a very sad day when mister Paulson passed away. I know that hit my dad really hard. And yeah, I'm sure he will forever be thankful for knowing mister Paulson. That's for sure. Visiting with trainer Riley Mott, getting ready to go out on his own later this year. Riley, if you could pick 5 of the horses that your dad has trained over the years. From the time he started his career, 5 to start your operation with, which 5 are you going to choose? Man, well, cigar, for sure. I don't have to explain why. By the way, I always say on the show, I just want to interrupt you for a second. You never were to hurt a cigar if holy bull stayed healthy. Just going to tell you that right now. All right. I'll let you think that for now. But I was huge holy bull fan, but cigar was true. I think probably the greatest race call of all time was holy bull in the Travers. I watched that on YouTube every now and now and again when I want to get when I want to get pumped up or something, but anyway. So I think second is theatrical man, he won like, I mean, this was before I was born, but I think he won like 6th grade ones in a year on the turf. It was either it was some ridiculous number, like 6 or 7 grade ones, and he didn't even get horse of the year that year. I guess back in the 80s they didn't really put too much stock in the turf racing, but let's see. Third, royal delta, I would say. I mean, a little bit more personal experience with her. She was pretty special, one, two breeders cups. She was multiple time eclipse award winner, Hall of Famer. Man. This is tough. I mean, you know, I think that's a good thing that I can't. Yeah, think of them, boom, boom, boom. It sounds like this is, again, when I was very young, but elusive quality was a pretty freaky talent. He was a record setter on the turf and I want to say the dirt as well. I think he held the world record for a little while, but he had a 3D talent. And then this might not be the 5th best, but speakers corner. That's my guy. So I got to go to speakers corner. He's my favorite horse at the moment. You know, I was around him quite a bit as a two year old and ever since then, really, but yeah, he's been a pretty special horse for me. So I got to pick my guy at number 5. What is it about speakers corner that really just draws you into him? I mean, really cool looking horse angular athletic, there's a lot to. I mean, he's a standout. That's for sure. Physically, talent wise. I mean, I don't know if I was around many two year olds that had the talent that he had. He didn't break his maiden until the fall, but. I think just personality was physically and just talent levels pretty extreme and he won a great one this year. Ran into a to have the biggest freaks we've seen in a few years. In the last two races. So that was a bit unfortunate, but yeah, just

"The last few weeks here on trainer talk, I have, I have interviewed assistant trainers that work with their father that are eventually going to be going out on their own at some point, I'm sure Ryan Bond was with me last week working with his dad Jim Bond and Blake Cox a couple of weeks ago who, of course, works with his father Brad Cox. There's a new generation of trainers that are going to be coming out. You'll be part of that. Talk about what's going to be different than it was for people like your father back in the day. Well, I mean, obviously, hisses become very big part of the new game, so to speak. You know, I think the idea is to have a uniform rules. Maybe going to be a little stricter on many things for many different people. I think we're going to have to really be on top of it as far as what goes on inside the barn. You're going to be held more accountable. Which is not a bad thing. So yeah, there's definitely a little curve ball that's going to be involved with the new generation, but it's nothing that we can't handle. That's pretty much all I have to say about it. But yeah, I think that, you know, young guys like Ryan, like Blake and myself, you know, we have to be adaptable to the times. And be compliant with the rules that are in place. And it should be pretty easy from there. Yeah, and that new federal regulation, if you will, is nothing that you can control. So you just have to adapt and cater your operation or tell your operation around those new rules. Do you think that will be difficult to do? No, not really. I mean, I've always been a big play the cards you're dealt kind of guy. I mean, you know, you can sit around and complain about rules that are put in place. Or whatever, but just, I mean, you got to just be flexible and adapt, like what else are you going to do? Are you going to sit and complain? Or you can just try to change your routine and make it your routine. And I don't know, I don't think it's rocket science. So yeah, I'm not worried. I'm not sure. I'm not too worried about it personally. Yeah, you can spend a lot of energy worrying about things that are out of your control. Exactly. Exactly. And that's all you can do, control the controllables. I mean, it even goes down to taking care of the horses. You can cry yourself to sleep about a horse getting a temperature two days before a race or something like that, but I don't know if you could have done anything differently to prevent that. So, and there's many things we try to prevent that we can control, and so, you know, like you said, waste a lot of energy, complaining about things that are out of your hands. Talking with trainer Riley Mott to works alongside his father, Bill, they've worked together for 8 years, but that will change this fall when Riley goes out on his own. It's exciting for him for his family, his wife, Megan, and his young daughter. He'll start forging a path of his own. And Riley, there's so many people that are going to be very excited to see you do that. Yeah. I mean, I've been around this game. My whole life. And it's something I've been looking forward to doing. And it kind of came to the point where I'm tired of thinking about it and talking about it and I'm just ready to get to work and basically. When a new president is elected, we talk about their first 100 days in office. What do you hope that Riley Mott's first 100 days is a trainer look like? I want to be in the winter circle, baby. That's about it. I want to get some numbers. I want to get some horses in the entries. I'm not really looking to show up with a bunch of two year olds turning three. I want to go claim a few. I want to go to the November sale and buy some horses of racing age, something I can just diversify the barn a bit. I think that's very important. I think if you come in with a bunch of young horses, you're going to send half of them home and maybe run three of them or something, you know? So I want to get a good mixture of types of horses, ones that I can run and run them in realistic spots. I don't want to. Run horses over their head by any means. And yeah, the only way someone's going to notice here is if you're winning. So it's not too hard to compute. Yeah, you mentioned a good mixture of different types of horses. What does that mean? Is that like turf horses, sprinters, dirt horses, what do you mean when you say a mixture? Yeah, I mean, all of the above, really. I mean, you don't want to be too heavy in one division, really. I guess it's nice when you can be. But I want some older horses that I can run right away. Things like that. It's pretty plain and simple. I think if you have too many of one type that can get you in a bit of trouble and I think the main thing is just being able to run right away. Just sort of keep things flowing in the barn. If you run one, get it claimed, try to claim one back. Just sort of keep the race flow going on the barn because you don't want to sit there. For half the winter and have two or three starts under your belt, you know, I want to get in the program, get in the entries. And that's the only way you're going to win some races if you run. Any chance that they might let you take olympiad with you to get you started? Maybe not that one, but one of the lesser caliber olympiad, what a cool horse. I mean, the day he walked in our barn is a two year old. He kind of stood out. We had to take our time with him for a couple of different reasons, but it's been a pretty magical year to this point. Horse like him

"Special guest today is Riley mocked the son of trainer Bill Mott who was getting ready to go out on his own, start settling his own horses later this year. And he was not working with his father in 2010, but he certainly remembers that day, and we're going to talk about it next. But I want to remind you, excuse me, for my voice, I want to remind you that if you missed any portion of the show, you can go to our website horse racing radio dot net to check out the podcast and you can also do that on multiple major podcast platforms, including Apple podcasts and pod bean. Well, Riley, that moment in 2010, I know you weren't with your dad as his assistant at that point, but you were plenty old enough. You were about 18 at that point. You were old enough to remember. Yeah, yeah, it was actually kind of a funny story. So, you know, most years I would have gone down to Belmont from Saratoga for the Belmont, but we didn't particularly think we had the best shot in the race. We were a bit of a long shot, a bit of an outsider. So I decided to go to a concert in Saratoga. And this was before like any kind of streaming on an iPhone as far as I remember. I probably had like a flip phone at that point, but so what I did, we were about to go in for the concert. So I ran into a car and put it on the radio, and I actually listened to that call live on the radio. And we could tell turning for home that we were like sort of in the thick of it. At least by the quarter poll, but I don't think we got one call within the final furlong until we hit the wire. So me and some buddies were listening to it and then finally they said, oh, and it's draw somewhere at the wire. Totally erupted. Basically got out of the car and started running around and going pretty crazy naturally. So that was an interesting story about draw some wire. But yeah, good day, Belmont stakes is pretty pretty amazing. And definitely won't forget that. Yeah, what a great story. And I have to tell you, I am honored to have been able to do that because that was a broadcast that we put together on horse racing radio network. And I'll never forget drosselmeyer not only because he won the Belmont that year, but we were set up alongside the paddock, was our broadcast location. And Sean clancy was working with us at that time. Of course, Sean, the founder of the Saratoga special with his brother Joe. And Sean was describing the horses as they walked into the paddock before the race, and he said, drosselmeyer just winked at me. So you might want to go put a couple bucks on drosselmeyer. And then he shows up at wins the race. Well, they're good horsemen. They know what they're looking at. Yeah, exactly. And when they wake at you, that's a telltale sign. But that was just one of the, you know, unbelievable moments in your dad's career. I mean, 5229 winners coming into today, Hall of Fame career. Who are some of the horses with those 5000 plus wins that are going to stand out to you, Riley. I mean, we've been so blessed to work around such a nice horses. I mean, a lot of the memories come from right here in Saratoga. I mean, I was kind of a track rat as a kid. Just hanging out at the races every day. So a lot of those wins on hand proviso, she was the first crop of Judd horses we got after Bobby Franco, unfortunately passed away. And we wound up winning, I think, like four grade ones with her. She won the Diana here in Saratoga, didn't think she'd get the myelin and 8th and just got there. My typhoon, she won the Diana up here. She was half to Galileo and see the stars and became a great one winner in her own right. Good samaritans, Jim dandy, was very special. I had a special place in my heart for that horse. Yoshida's Woodward, Tanner and serves Woodward. I can go on, but there's been great royal delta ran here. So Saratoga is a memorable place for many, many reasons, no doubt. Yeah, it's special for a lot of reasons, but certainly with the success that you and your dad and he has had up there over the years. How about when tourist won the breeders cup mile in 2016? What do you remember about that day? I kind of blacked out when he was coming to the wire, actually. So I don't remember, you know, for a couple of seconds of that. But no, very cool. I think that was one of the first breeders cups that my wife Megan and I were at together. We weren't even engaged at the time, but and then a very close friend of mine Rudolph bressett was an assistant with me. With my dad and we were very close friends and it was his final breeders cup with us before he went out on his own. And so special for a couple of different reasons, but Rosario gave that horse the ride of a lifetime came up the rail and just got there. So yeah, it was pretty cool. Pretty cool for several reasons.

"More than just leaving them over there and running them. I mean, there's a lot that goes into what we do. A lot of people get up 7 days a week and before the sun's up and I think it's fun to be able to show people that. How would you compare your dad the father and your dad, the boss? Well, I mean, as far as I, you know, talk to them or communicate with them in the barn. I mean, when we're around everybody and we're working, he's the boss. Like I said, yes sir, no, sir. And I have a great deal of respect for what he's accomplished. I don't want to ring his bell too much because he's my dad, but like, you know, he's a bit of a legend. He's a bit of a legend. So, you know, I have a huge respect for him and those that came before me and the operation. And but at the same time, like I said, it's been a cool relationship for us because on the side, we're kind of jarring back and forth here and there. So he's dead, maybe 15% of the time in the barn, but the boss for the majority of the time. So it's been a very unique and very special and, you know, we're lucky enough not to really butt heads. I know there's been a lot of father son combos that might not click real well in the barn, but there's a lot that do and we're lucky enough to be one of them and it's made us a lot closer, really. If all goes according to plan, when do you expect to have your operation up and running and have your first horses out there in your name? Well, so the plan right now is we keep horses and Saratoga throughout the fall. And we'll ship the last ones out in early November down to Florida. And my plan is to send them off from Saratoga. And then Oakland park opens up for stabling in November. So rally the troops and head to Oakland and they start running in December and they have a pretty elongated meat there. It goes until May I suppose. And that's the current plan. And then for spring summer fall, I'd love to be in Kentucky. Wherever they would have space for me. That's kind of a hot ticket right now. Kentucky racing's obviously on the up and up and there's a lot of reasons to go there. And but that's the tentative plan at this point in time. Do you know how many horses you'll have to get started at this point or is it still too early to tell? It's a bit early. We have some in the barn currently that are training under my dad and myself. Who will eventually break off and come with me? When I leave, but my plan is I want to get up to 20 by the end of the end of the winter and I certainly want to grow. I think that's definitely a feasible. I've been lucky enough to work around some larger strings and I think my management skills are pretty strong and having a sizable stable something out of the realm and if I were to get the support to do so, but yeah, no, I want to apply for 20 stalls off the bat with room to grow and go from there and maybe I won't have as many, but maybe I'll have more and just got to kind of go with the flow and see what kind of cards I'm dealt. Yeah, some trainers would tell you that they would like to have as many as possible, but of course that brings into play different challenges and different headaches, if you will. And then other trainers say, no, I want quality over quantity. So what side of the fence do you fall on there? I think sometimes you don't necessarily have control over the quality that you've received. You know, I always thought it was a bit of a numbers game, but. It's hard to say, I'm usually with the larger string in the operation and we have a lot of success and things are run very neat and tidy and we cross our T's and dot our eyes very well. So I don't think you have to be a small stable to do a good job. I think it's about the attention to detail that you put in and the team that you surround yourself with. So I'm certainly going to try to form a solid team and we're going to just kind of keep on doing what we're doing here and I think things will be just fine. I know you have an officially gotten there yet with going out on your own but what are the biggest challenges that a new trainer faces when going out on his own or her own? I think most people would tell you the help situation. We're extremely lucky. Under my dad's operation. We do a lot of H two B visas. We have some non Visa workers as well. But the majority of them are H two B Visa workers. And we've had a lot of the same guys for many years. Some people were there when I was a kid and they're still here. So we have an extremely good team. You never have to worry about anyone not showing up. So our staff is kind of set in stone at any given moment of the year. But I think probably the staffing part will be a major challenge starting out. Obviously you want to get owners that will pay you on time because that's how you pay your staff and your feed feed Bill, et cetera. So you can't really stay in business if you don't get paid monthly, but yeah, there's several things I think knowing how to run your business in a sound manner is vital and that's part of the reason I have confidence on going out of my own is because I kind of have been in that system my entire life and know what to do and what not to do. There's always things to learn and to get better at, but that's something I feel like I have pretty down. What do you think you will need to get better at? I mean,

"What was your dad's reaction when you told him, hey, I think I'm going to do this now. I think I'm going to make this move. I think that he was very excited for me. You know, he was probably a little bit sad to lose me. We have a very special relationship. I get to spend mostly every day with my dad. And a lot of it is a working relationship. I try to keep things light in the barn. But respectfully, like, you know, it's yes sir, no, sir. But we don't let things get too tense, really. So it's been very, very cool and we've grown very close over the years. With our shared passion and so we sat in that sense as well as I am. It's going to be unfortunate not to be able to work with him every day, but he's known that I've wanted to do this my whole life. And I think he's pretty thrilled for me. When you join me on this show and 2016, you described your dad as your idol, and you said that you hope to one day be as good of a person as your father, as well as a horse trainer. And I called your dad, and I asked him what he was most proud of about you. And the one thing he said that he said, he's most proud that you're a quality person. So I guess mission accomplished. Yeah, I mean, I think a lot of people that know him well would say the same thing that not only is he a an amazing horse trainer, but just a really good person. You know, he's down to earth. He's fair with everybody. He treats everyone with equal respect, no matter who they are. He is empathetic. Just everything that I would want my son to be. Or daughter. And he's done a great job. Both my parents have raising us kids and it's been really special. And I think that's part of the reason why he's done well throughout his career. You know, he's had good relationships with clients and peers. He always told me, you know, growing up, never, never burned bridges with anybody, no matter how wrong they do you. You know, just stay above it and everything will turn out okay, I suppose. And yeah, it's just been great for me on a personal level just to try to emulate him. Yeah, great advice. And I also asked him why he feels that you're going to be successful as a trainer, and he said, well, he's a good horseman. He's a student of the game. He's knowledgeable about horses and injuries and those types of things. And he's a good communicator. And he's great with people. It has to be cool to hear your dad point out those things when he talks about you. Yeah, you know, you're probably one of the first people that I'm hearing. Those things from, you know, he's not really one that he's not cold by any means, but he's not going to sit there and pat you on the back. And tell you how great of a job you're doing all the time. My whole life, all I've wanted to do is make him proud, really. So just through learning and working hard, I've tried to do that. And it's certainly nice to hear those things. But that's never really been his MO. It's kind of expected. You're supposed to work hard. You're supposed to treat horses the right way. And continue to get better and yeah, so from all that, it's worked out so far. How important is it to be a good communicator and be good with people when you're going to be training racehorses for a living? Oh, it's incredibly important. I mean, the people who entrust us with these horses and pay all their bills, they're not all of them have the ability to be here every day and see every little detail that we're seeing. I don't think it's necessary for them to see every single thing that happens in the barn. But it's nice for them to get some sort of feedback from the trainer. A proof of life every now and then a photo or a video or just a phone call. I think is very much appreciated. And I think my life has been easier when I have been a better communicator. All it takes is, like I said, sometimes a phone call or a text message. Just to relay a little bit of information. And it goes a long way. And that's what I plan on continuing to do going forward with my clients. And my staff, and I think being a good communicator is a very good recipe for success. So yeah, it can't be overstated. Talking with trainer Riley Mott here on trainer talk presented by phasic tipped in the son of Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott. Riley, tell me about the similarities with you and your dad when it comes to training horses. And what are some of the differences quite frankly? I mean, similarities are that, I mean, I've grown up in his system that he's been able to perfect and tweak over 50 years of training. So his system is what I know and what I've that's how I know how to train horses. So I think we have a very similar philosophy. We have our protocols when certain things arise. And like I said, you're constantly trying to tweak things to make them more efficient or better for the horses or for the staff. And it's been cool to see things sort of change here and there over time. Just so we can perfect our system and I think I've got a great handle on it and that's what gives me a lot of confidence going forward. I know how to run things from a business side. My mom does all the book work, I work very closely with our bookkeeper. I do payroll every week. So I think being able to see how things are run from the inside growing up and up until this point has been pivotal. So it gives me a lot of confidence, like I said, not only the horse side of it, but the business side. And our difference is, I mean, pretty much what we just talked about a bit earlier. I think it's 2022. And I think communications are really big deal. At this point in time, maybe it always wasn't the case when my dad was coming up in the 70s and the 80s. And he's happy to talk to any owner that gives him a call or they have a planned phone conference once a week to go over the horses. It might not be the best texture on earth, but I would say I've got him on the communications side. That's for sure. He might have me on the training side, but I've got him on that side. Yeah, he's not out there on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram. But I'm sure that I'm sure you will be. I'm sure there's going to be an element of social media that you're going to use to help keep your owners informed. I would assume, is that right? Yeah, and I think it's obviously a good way to promote. It's a free way to advertise. I think horse racing social media is a pretty big community. And it's important because not a lot of people can be inside the ropes with us every day. Seeing what goes on in their day to today training and kind of the husbandry of taking care of horses. So I think it's important to show those on the outside how we do things.

"XM two O one streaming worldwide at horse racing radio net and podcast, major podcast platforms, each and every week. Well, my guest on today's show, first appeared on trainer talk in September of 2016. The son of Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott mentioned his dream was to one day train on his own. Well, that dream is about to become reality. This past winter, he took out his trainer's license in Florida, and after 8 years working alongside his father, he now plans to start running horses in his name later this year. Please join me in welcoming trainer Riley mot back to trainer talk presented by phasic tipton. Riley appreciated my friend. Thanks for having me on again. Man, I'll tell you what, I wish you were some type of voice doctor. I'm going to try and keep my voice together for the next hour here for us. But wow, I had to laugh when I reached out and asked you to join me on the show. And I mentioned that the show is an hour long and you're reply to me was hopefully I have enough to say. And it's the same reply I got from your dad when I asked him to join me on this show a few years back. So I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Yeah, hopefully you have a lot of questions for me to answer. Hey, I want you to do most of the talking There we go. Can do. Yeah. Well, you know the best part about that is that once your dad gets going, he's an incredible interview. Yeah, I mean, just growing up, you know, I've heard stories about his past experiences growing up in the Midwest, particularly South Dakota and cutting his teeth in places like Nebraska and Holly Colorado and Detroit raceway, et cetera so a guy who's up in his 68 years old or so and he's been doing it since he was 14. So the man's had years and years of experience and a lot of stories to go along with it. So, you know, he could probably write a book if he wanted to, but he's always seeming to come up with some new stories I've never heard, which is pretty cool. I can't believe he's 68 years old. Yeah, I might have him off by a year or two or maybe a little younger a little older. But he looks good. He's moving around well. I mean, I think, you know, he's still a full steam ahead with the training and his daily routines. I think it keeps him young. I remember when you appeared on this show 6 years ago, you mentioned that love of horses that you have began at your dad's green tree operation in Saratoga when he used to train at that facility. Yeah, I mean, my earliest memories are from greentree. It's a little oasis here in Saratoga. Currently owned by godolphin and has two big, beautiful barns with a private track and back when we were there. There was a little par three golf course in the middle of the track when it was owned by bob mcnair. Stoner sides tables. And yeah, I mean, it was just very picturesque and a good place for the horses, but yeah, that's about where my love for the game started as a young kid just getting brought to the barn more so just to exert some energy more than anything. They had me fill in a water buckets and picking up the trash and whatever, whatever a little kid can do around there and just being around the team and getting to know everyone in the operation and how to move around a horse and things of that nature. It's just, I just loved it all, really. So it's kind of a love at first sight type of thing. Was this always what you would see yourself doing for a living or was there a time when you said maybe I'll do something other than working with horses? It was really never anything else to be quite honest. Like I said, from a young age, I was there when I could be and it just when I started realizing that people go on and do things for a living or have a career after they're in school and whatever. It was really just like, okay, well, I'll be a trainer because that's what I love. And that's what I want to pursue. And I know many people, especially people that I was around, they always told me how lucky I was that I had found my passion at such a young age. And it's still my passion to this day. And I'm really excited to pursue my goals. Why is now the right time to make the move and go out on your own? I've had the itch for a couple of years now. I mean, is there ever like the perfect time to do it? I'm not exactly sure. You know, just talking to my dad about it. Growing up, he always just said, well, you have to know when the right opportunity for you as there could be opportunities that present themselves, but they might not always be the right ones or the best ones. So it's not like somebody came up to me and said, well, send you 20 head of horses, go out on your own. In this particular case, I feel like I've just been able to see so much in the barn that I'm very confident with the tools that I have knowing our system inside and out and everything in between, I mean, I think I just feel that I'm ready to take the next step and continue to learn from the role as a trainer. I think I'm pretty well equipped and I've been kind of groomed to do this my whole life. So I'm just ready to put what I've learned to the test and just pursue my dreams. What was your dad's reaction when you told him, hey, I think I'm going to do this now. I think I'm going to make this move. I

"Gets an automatic bid to the Preakness if he or she is nominated at the Triple Crown. Same thing with the winner of the tesio. We heard in the rejoin shake him loose able to beat heavily favored Joe when they faced off in the private terms last time out, Joe was defeated at even money that day you're going to get a better price on him tomorrow. Do you think he turns the tables on shake them loose? I think it is possible. I'm not really sure. I think it's a wide, wide open race. If you're a fig player or if you kind of evaluate final times of races, I think you're going to find a bunch of horses that look pretty similar in here. Shake them loose, obviously, is coming off a win in a similar spot. But needs pace and I don't see a ton of pace in here. I love the fact that shake them loose is really, really sharp right now. And I think Joe certainly can turn the tables. I'm trying to find somebody else. Remember Joe is even money when they raced last time. I'm a little bit interested in secret alliance, number 9 for John service, I think the last race was pretty good against maidens at parks, but again, those were maidens at parks. Smarten up number 7 gets the Lasix for the first time. I like that. The last two races at parks, I wish they were wins and not seconds, but they're competitive. In the end, I just trust Bill Mott more than anyone else in here. So a little bit of a curve ball south street 8 to one coming out of a maiden race in which he was rank and won at 6 to one at aqueduct. It's the most expensive horse in the field. It's the best trainer in the field and I wonder if Bill Mott has spotted his horse very smartly here has found a little bit of a soft stakes field and can pull one out at a nice price. Certainly doesn't look like the top notch three year olds in the country, but up and comers as it seems like they're always are in these Federico tesio stakes. So Dave going with number 5 south street, I'm also going to try to beat the locals with number 7 smarten up for Alfredo Velasquez and angel crews getting Lasix for the first time in his career after racing without Lasix at both aqueduct and parks in his first 7 starts. I like his consistency. I think he's going to get a nice trip either on or stalking the pace. And to me, he looks as good as anyone else and he's going to be a better price than some of them use 9 to two on the morning line. So smart and up for me, south street for Dave, we're both taking shots against the favorites into tomorrow's Federico tesio race 9 on the card at Laurel. We're going to take a break. When we come back, we're going to head down to Keenan. They've got three stakes on their Saturday card, including two graded stakes.

"Really appreciate it. Thank you very much. I was a bit nervous while I waited for the confirmation of mister Wilson's criminal record. Not because it really mattered, but all the social cues screamed that it couldn't be true. But it was. Here is the information that I found. When he was 20 years old in 1933, he served 18 months in the Oklahoma state penitentiary for larceny of domestic fouls. That means he stole some chickens and went to prison. Man, that's a tough judge, I guess. His second term in Oklahoma we couldn't figure out what it was for. But I was able to find that on March 22nd, 1940, at the age of 27, he pleaded guilty to breaking and entering and burglary in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He was sentenced to two to three years in the New Mexico state penitentiary. The prison records say that he was 5 foot ten and a quarter, he weighed a 148 pounds, had a vaccination scar in his left arm, and was a smoker. Wilson, woody Rawls. That's what they called him. Was an unlikely bestselling author and his personal story is wildly intriguing and redemptive. He was one of 6 children born in the community of scrapper and Cherokee county, Oklahoma, a fitting birthplace. He was educated by his mother, who was part Cherokee Indian, and as he recounted when a school was finally opened, he had to wait across a river to get there. The Illinois river, which is in the book and movie. He was often tethered while crossing the river with a lariat rope around his waist so he wouldn't wash downstream. He went to school during the summer and only went for four years. As a young boy, he read the book call of the wild, which inspired him to want to be a writer. It was also during that time that he coon hunted with his blue tick hound rowdy. Mister Wilson and his family left the Ozarks of Oklahoma when he was in his early 20s. He would end up living in New Mexico, finally settled down and Idaho for a lot of his adult life, but he died in Wisconsin in 1984. He primarily worked in construction his whole life wherever he went. Throughout his young adulthood, he would write multiple book manuscripts by hand. As many as 6, they say, and some of it on paper sacks. He would later say the spelling was horrible, and that the handwriting included no punctuation. He kept the writing secret and was seemingly ashamed of his moonlighting passion. Before he got married at the age of 45 and 1958, it's believed that he burned many of his manuscripts. Yep, lit them on fire. It was only after he got married to his wife Sophie that he confessed his writing habits and she encouraged him to write. It is believed that Rawls quit his job and in three weeks he rewrote the entire 35,000 word book where the red fern grows from memory. This would have most likely been in 1959. Sophie helped him edit the manuscript and submit it to a publisher. Mister Wilson's story was originally published as a three part series in 1961 in the Saturday evening post under the name, the hounds of youth. From this initial exposure, a publishing company picked up the book and published it under the name where the red fern grows without mister Wilson's input and it's said that it broke his heart because he didn't think it would reach the children as effectively with that name. And this is what's wild. The book was not an immediate success. It wasn't until 1967, 6 years after the book was published, and decades after he originally wrote the first manuscript that he got his first break. Mister Wilson was invited to speak at a children's book conference, a place that ex cons usually aren't invited. This was in Utah. And this would ignite a flame and open people's eyes to the mastery of his narrative. Mister Wilson was in his mid 50s, a construction worker, and had never spoken in public before, and he almost didn't even go. After this conference orders poured in for the book and its hype spread like wildfire. And he would spend the final 20 years of his life before his passing in 1984, traveling to over 2000 schools, making inspirational speeches to children, encouraging them to read and explore writing. An ex convict turned bestselling author turned children's motivational speaker is an unlikely but redemptive path. It's easy for me to believe that he wouldn't be too quick to talk about his past, which seems like he never did. Maybe his fictional story was his way to write the wrongs of his youth. It's pure speculation. Here's a clip from the Disney movie where the red fern grows. You're going to hear the young voice of a man that we're about to meet. Good luck. I'll be looking for a big crew skin on the smokehouse wall in the morning. Bye..

The music making process gets way less Tedious and way. Less like site tricky. Because it's not about the gear. Almost all the gear can do whatever you wanted to do. It says you need to selected on just use it. And why i'm saying is because i've had a huge issue with wasting tons and tons of time and effort into sidetracking left and right all the time realising hours later oh wait i was working on this piece of music and somewhere totally different right now. I think we've gone probably. Maybe maybe that's the thing nowadays. Is that this. So mott's august. You can select. I heard somewhere that you know hall of the maybe more audit fi songs the catalog they never been plagued once so there's so many artists there's so much to consume you can basically get get lost in that. Well it's pretty much the same thing and all that other stuff everything so easy to do nowadays that it's it's so easy to get lost and that's why have to be a bit more unique. You have to find your way of doing saas. Focus on your things start with the basics and get something done and then hopefully lucky as well. I agree with all of that. I think I think like i said as a consumer. It's the best time but for an artist the only well not about the one downside of all of this amazing technology. Which i'm a huge proponent. Of by the way i love my tech i everything is that as an artist. Sometimes now it feels that people are just going from that one hit record to the next hit record and they don't sort of know or care of who created.

Dave he has settled a total of five thousand one hundred thirty one winners in his career. Four of those coming in the forest. Dave more than any trainer in history and he is with me now on a very busy morning for him so we won't keep him long bill. Good morning appreciate a few minutes. Hey thanks for having me on. Good morning he appreciate you taking time. I know how busy saratoga saturday mornings can be casa creed looks to give you win number five in the four star dave today last year. He was third in this very same race. What are you seeing from him. Coming into this year's race well he's coming up a couple of really good races You know we shortened him up. Anyone going seven eighths and then won the grade one jaipur stakes at six furlongs We had thoughts of running him. Five and a half furlongs up here in. Saratoga is see how he would handle that distance But we drew a very bad post. We drew the twelve colon decided to scratch and and run a week later in four star. Dave i mean he has been effective going a mile before and and You know we thought our chances were probably a little better in here than they were coming out of the twelve and the other race so You know he seemed like he was ready to run and we didn't you know we had no reason to wait any any longer than this weekend. So as a hall of famer who is settled so many big winners in your career. Bill what are some of the key things that you look for in a horse coming into a grade one race like this letting you know. He's ready to fire his best shot. Well number one. You wanna be coming in off of a good race. Which he is. He's coming in off of off a two real good races. And and you know you wanna look at the horse and make sure they're you know in good flesh and moving well and sound and you know he checks all the boxes there. I mean he's been he's been doing quite well. You know you know when you come into these kind of races. You don't wanna have to have any hiccups coming into them. You know missing works. Bruce feet whatever you know what i mean you just You want everything to go smoothly and and Feel like things have gone well Leading up to the race as far as training goes and i can say that things have gone nicely for him the race before the four star. Dave is the saratoga special. You'll send out number eleven high oak. A horse just getting started with his career. He broke his maiden june. Twenty six at belmont now comes in to his first stakes effort. Tell me a little bit more about high oak Done everything right. You know ran well in his first race got up looked like they output it in a little bit early which you know they probably will do in this race today But he seems to be determined sort of horse in in. You know we're going to give in the give him the class test today and see what what happens. I obviously there's going to be a good pace in there and we'll we'll see if he if he's if he's good enough. I think you know a lot of these times when courses haven't run but one time it's always kind of a fact finding mission to see what you've got as far as you know Quality in class in and In of course you know ability how you match up with the other horses so We're you know we're i think we're i. I'm cautiously optimistic. About his chances You know. I feel good about him. I feel good the way that he's trained and and You know now we just gotta get him out on the race track and and get the answer out there a bill before i let you go. I'll ask you for one quick comment on paradise creek because this is potentially the final arlington million day in the history of our sport and have been talking about a lot on the show this morning. Your loan win in the arlington million came in nineteen eighty-four with paradise creek. Who's by the way one of my all time. Favourite tur- forces. That was a special day for you. What you remember about paradise creek and that just i. I remember you know paradise creek in his entirety. Because i had him from you know when he was a baby and the two year old and went in his first start at belmont we ran him back on dirt. One time in the hopeful just to give him a try on dirt which didn't work out well and then of course she stayed on the turf the rest of his life but He ran against some of the very best during you know he he ran against learner. He and lur changed places of a few times on the racetrack. I think we beat him. You know a couple of times You know. I can't remember if it was his four year old year but You know he he. He raced against high quality horses and and then in his final race just got beat knows in the japan cup which going a mile and a half so you know he was a horse that was effective at a mile second in the breeders cut mile at gulfstream and when the arlington million at a mile and a quarter and then of course got touched off knows in japan cup so really a good horse.

"mott" Discussed on Charlotte Readers Podcast

"Twenty eleven. yes the jokes. were fun I i definitely poke fun and a lot of people that are in the thing that i find so hilarious and i love telling this part of narrative is my age it and like all the ages her office people that she said this book to like before we sent to editors of stuff and even after we found we were shopping for editors people inside publishing was like nobody wants to hear about publishing. Nobody wants to hear anything about what's going on behind the scenes as i do. Trust me people would love to hear the sanity that you guys are getting into And now when people are now people starting to read the book like everyone loves the publishing stories in the wacky agent and the weird stuff. And so i told him i got a little bit about yourself to my agent on that. It's like see i told you. Love to hear what you're crazy job. And that's i mean i'm an i'm an author. I'm i've been through the pope publishing. I know the stuff. And i'm still fascinated and that was something. I'm glad you brought that up. Because i was wondering do non authors find. This fascinating answered my question. Yeah so far. People have founded really fascinating it really. Which is that was the whole. You know because publishing is esoteric. But i think just the absurdity. I tried to rape those scenes as absurd as possible. And i definitely pushed to level twelve on certain points and really poke. Fun isn't people who hopefully won't come tracked me down to be angry. Because i get you a lot of those scenes as absurd. They are based on real honest guy. Conversations i've had with people and they're all great people so hopefully they'll get angry about it even kelly scenes. Oh dating scenes yes. There's a lot of truth in those dating scene. I'm gonna jump back in here. I've been really enjoying this conversation And it has prompted a of questions. Jason that i have you You mentioned that In addition to the humor. I love the title. Hell of a book but in addition to all that An aunt seeing into a space. The people don't always experience the public space. You talked about how. This is part memoir. Are there any particular sayings That that really were hard for you to write from a memoir standpoint or anything you can tell us that your personal experience that kind of dust show up in the book. Yes and no like so. This is where i'm going to really annoying. You really evasive. That's your that's your prerogative. I just want to go ahead and say it earlier. Just admit and i'm gonna be really evasive. On this part. There were a lot of really difficult scenes to in that in that book Both both from my personal memoir kind of component and then also just from the component of like being able to relate to you know. My father was not shot by police. Bank god But i empathize with people in. It could have been handed could have been me quite frankly. I'm forty three years old. I'm i'm lucky to have made it this far. So so so yes. There were definitely moments that were way personal but i'm not going to nail down exactly which ones are which right now Only because they're you know as an author they're still. I'm still trying to maintain a little bit that vail just kind of a self protection mechanism But yeah so. Yeah there definitely hard moments and hopefully they will find some part of themselves in those moments though had my listeners. All when i heard you mentioned memoir i thought. Take a shot at your. I respect that. I felt i respect that you should get out of that so and since it took you ten years as you said it's the the buck has been in your head for ten years. What do you hope that Readers take away from this out that this book be you know help. It starts in or not starts. There's always the conversation about this about the things within this now. But i hope it adds to in furthers that conversation the national conversation that we have about race and but identity police in interactions between those three. And you know what is to be an american What it means to to to exist in a certain type of body in a country where historically that body has not been treated very well. We'll be delicate and say that way So my hope for the book is that it it finds people can come to it. They can laugh. They can we but they can also leave it thinking when they when they close the book. I want them thinking about something they actually read and want that to move with them as they go forward into the day for however long it can also use the asked this question particularly authors written More than one book. You've written four plus novels now plus the poetry that goes with it so and you may have kind of answered this in in response to ask this question for advice for young riders. But the question. I ask is if you could tell your younger writing. Sell something of value based on everything. You've learned that you think would have helped that younger jason motte through the early writing career Can you boil it down. Anything in particular probably. Yeah probably similar. To what i told alex about be forgiving. But i'll also tell myself to be patient. I definitely underestimated how you're writing takes a long time to learn. It is a much more difficult skill than people. Oftentimes give it credit for And it takes. It just takes longer to learn it really does. and so. When i was younger i was in such a rush to be good at writing and kind of hate it myself for not being as good as i wanted to be. And it wasn't that i was not capable of doing just haven't had time is it's like logging flight miles. If you're trying to be a pilot like you just need time. The seat and you need a lot more hours in seat. You need assess they tell myself that you're as just just be patient. Just get more time in the seat and enjoy the time that you're having like don't don't rush for the next thing enjoy where you are. Whatever stage you're at and you're writing enjoy that and just get the time in the seat. That is really great advice. Something that Myself included probably a lot of people out there. Patients is one of those those things that's hard to master really In fact i had a state berry on e. he's only sold two hundred and fifty million books worldwide and asked him. I said well you know. Tell me about your path. He said well. I was a overnight success but it took twelve years. Sounds about right. That sounds about right. Yeah so as long as we keep that in mind you know. You can be an overnight success. It's just gonna take more than ten years to do it exactly exactly. Oh there's been a great conversation alice.

Android Ostracization - Snapdragon 888

"To kickoff. Finally after weeks of there being practically no news. We are excited. 'cause we've got a bunch of news talk about and i is project mainline Which is likely to get a new module and android twelve and get a big one at that art android runtime. A google engineer reveal the plan a comment within with an sp build This is the default runtime on android says two thousand fourteen us application and system services on android and basically translates an apps code into instructions and like other mainline modules. This would be a major component. That is then updateable via the play store and not requiring a full system update. So i mean this is one of those underlying under the hood. Things that like could fundamentally change the way android works which is fascinating. And if you're into this sort of stuff but then also in some other revolutionary android discoveries thanks to commit to the ao sp or the android open source project. There are plans to allow fonts and emojis to be updateable outside of full upgrade. Which is how it's handled now and note that these commits haven't been merged in yet so it's impossible to know whether this change will make its way into android twelve and it's probably say this is better late than never because he updating emojis wouldn't be something tied to a system update But here it is and more and more. We see things kind of disconnected from the system update from the full version update and being able to be updated via the play store and through kind of individual minor updates. Jason this i mean. Is it hyperbole to say this potentially changes a lot when it comes to android. It certainly moves in that direction. I mean i've loved the promise of main line and before it trouble of which is still active but mainlines the one that i get really excited about right now. The the potential of that You know for the last couple of years that it's existed my concern or my worry when i when i was first introduced was okay. This sounds great in theory. But yeah we'll see what really happens but year after year. It seems like google is really Placing a lot of effort in tackling these core fundamental aspects of the android operating system. That are underlying everything that that you do. And so it moves us closer to a world where android you know is updateable by and large most of these really major core components updateable through a an update on the play store. Instead of requiring an update. And that's kind of the promise of of mainline. And i just i love that. They're continuing to kind of build upon this. It really does did feel necessary if felt a little late because this is something that we've been complaining about for years the fact that you know. Updates are so reliant upon The or the the carriers everybody's got their hands in it and that all slows everything down this allows certain elements to speed up and to still be updated for people's phones to not be so so reliant upon those system updates because like we know very well you know a lot of. Oem's don't care to do the big system update so at least at least we're getting some of these updates somehow and i think art you know android runtime that's a. That's a pretty major component of android that hints. I hope anyways that hints at other major components being tackled in the future. Yeah i mean it seems like this. I must say disenfranchise. But that's not the right word but disengaging of these core components into the system. Update you know. Were really what then. You'll see when a new version is released. It is just the framework or the skeleton and the the components that go into that skeleton will be the ones that can be maintained from release to release Which when you think about it as much it's it's a it's a less bloated system. Update it's a less you know it's it's a then you have the the situation for more because the whole trend in The over the i mean how many years now maybe two or three years now has been iterative updates right the days of a massive like pretty much since mott wants material design role that i forget. What version has since that rollout has been of it has been a slow evolution versus a major. You know everything's different now. Meanwhile while everything everything is different now is a lot more fun to talk about. A slow in iterative is probably safer and leads to better development so this is probably smarter decisions so and then you know on the flip side of this emojis. Updateable without an update. Which i mean you know i. I could make jokes about that. Flows not here to defend emojis of course She probably would be if she were here. But still that's you know that's just another another aspect if that ends up being and and i'm actually this news doesn't necessarily point to that being updateable via main line but it certainly points to it being updateable the less updates which is the way it is now so one could. Maybe you know Imply that that's maybe the direction that is going whether it's using mainline or not. I still think that's a pretty pretty good move to be. Because i mean as we know emoji is is is changing often. You know there's often changes to it so having to wait for the update for people who love their emoji. That's going to be a big deal. Maybe they won't even notice. Actually but i would imagine they'd be happy that they have a new emoji right when it happens other news here. The snapdragon tech summit digital event is happening. it's a two day event at started today. and qualcomm is now teasing. Its next major flagship chipset so based on the brink convention you know a fifty five eight sixty five we would expect eight seventy five. No no no. They teased the eight. Eighty eight so it's unclear whether the eight hundred eighty eight is like more premium than the eight seventy five that they haven't announced yet that i don't even know exist. Just totally speculating. Or if eight eighty eight is kind of the replacement the new one All in we will find out about that You know as we go further but It includes a snapdragon x sixty five g modem so that of course supports millimeter.

Better Late Than Never? Big Companies Scramble To Make Lofty Climate Promises

"A growing number of companies have announced plans to tackle climate change and it is not just companies with eco-friendly reputations. Npr's Camilla Domino reports that. These companies are responding to pressure on multiple fronts. Helping the planet is good for business. That's what Elizabeth Sirkin. The Environmental Defense Fund has been telling corporate leaders. We can't exist as people and we can exist as businesses without clean air clean water a stable climate. She started delivering that message. Twenty years ago it was so fundamentally obvious to me. I really felt like business would just get this. She figured CEO's would cut emissions governments would set new climate policies and she didn't need to get a new job. I never thought that this many years later I would still be doing. This turns out helping. The planet did not seem like the obvious move too many. Ceo's but there are signs of a shift. More companies are now promising to cut more carbon and to do it more quickly. And there's an acceleration in the number of companies setting so-called science based targets in line with the global agreement. The Paris Accord Kevin. Moss runs the Center for Business Sustainability at the World Resources Institute. It's a small fraction of the overall proportion of businesses. But it's lodge impactful companies like Guo. Mott's Light Target Light Hilton Hotels. So what changed while the effects of climate change are becoming clearer not as a future risk but something happening right now at the same time solar and wind energy keep getting cheaper and there's more pressure from investors and from customers from some governments. There might be some more surprising sources of pressure to like kids. Here's Elizabeth Sirkin again. I hear from business leaders all the time today that you know their kids come home and say what are you doing dad? This makes a difference. Employees are increasingly influential to Cam. Kim runs an APP. Called Blind. Tech workers can talk to each other about their workplaces and he says they're increasingly discussing issues like climate change. People talk a lot of compensation of course and the work culture but I think this is a whole new segment in a survey half. His users said companies climate policy affects whether or not they want to work their employees investors customers science. All of that played a role in Microsoft's recent decision to go beyond carbon neutral and pol more carbon dioxide out of the air then. The company admits but chief Sustainability Officer. Lucas Java says there's another factor too. He says it's helped to frame this as an accounting problem. And that really is what I see. Flip executives mindsets around is to just talk about this in terms that they understand talking about a carbon budget quantifying. Exactly how much companies emit and how much they'll need to cut at the end of the day. What companies are really good at doing is making decisions based on numbers of course setting carbon budget is one thing sticking to it is another and some experts say there could be a danger in relying on big corporations to drive the fight against climate change. Chilanga Baker is a professor at Northeastern University who studies the social justice dimensions of transition away from fossil fuels she says communities especially vulnerable and marginalized communities should have a say in the fight against climate change and feel the benefits of a switch to green energy. I'm just not sure if I have the faith given that you know. Corporations are very concerned about expenses and profits that they would really think about something that may add cost but that may be more just Baker says commitments from companies can definitely be powerful but she says government policy can make sure. Vulnerable populations are protected.
