"With Steve. Big Horse racing handicapping interviews. This is who was stupid very good Tuesday race fans serious to thousand except to a one sports zone night sixty four could listening to Siriusxm online and at our website as well the DOT com. And I've got a bit of a kind of a hodgepodge of stuff today. I didn't get a chance yesterday to do something that I wanted to include. Knowing that we were going to have a very quiet week and somehow I actually it occurs to me. I managed to avoid having to disappoint. Sean clancy without the Iroquois Saturday so did avoid. I did avoid having to figure out the trip to to Nashville for this year. That just that just occurred to me but I I was looking on Saturday through Derby History Derby Media Guide and I wanted each day week particularly this week and potentially even at the next week to feature some of the the connections on the anniversaries of their various Derby's with the with the first Saturday being September September this year September but You know being on the second it it provides a you know pretty good canvas when you look through each of the days and today as it happens. Bay feth particularly incredible list of of Derby winners on September fifth We are going to get a fourth of September. This September thing is in my head now the the May fourth date we are going to get the May fourth date in so this way. We'll have a collection of of five this week. And the strike the gold and with Nick winning that maiden the other day closing day at oaklawn. I thought it'd be great to get nick. Nick Zito is GONNA join US early and Carl. Nascar is going to join US midway through the show today. Ten thirty because not only is it the thirtieth anniversary of unbridled. But it just so happens that may fifth was also when street sense won his Derby. So both of Carl. Have Scher's Derby wins came on the fifth and thirtieth is a nice robust number. And it's always great to talk to to Karl Nascar and in fact Nascar for a long time has been kind of a go to. We've had a lot of conversations derby weeks when Carl hasn't been involved. Ask Him for his observations and he's picked. He's picked a handful of Derby winners when we When we talked to him based on what he sees in the mornings but one of my absolute favorite visitors and you know the conversations in in two thousand and seven. I mean that that's as good that continues to be as good a triple crown sequence and for our for people of our age and you know for a for a sequence of triple crown races. That had three different winners. It certainly among the best ever. If it isn't the best ever I mean what what what went on in the three races were each indelible in their own way and then you know for the drama that they produced Street Sanson Morales first win and the getting off the Breeders Cup Juvenile Jinx ending that then cullen bursting on the scene and then followed up and of course street. Sense waited and pointed from that point for the travers. That worked out perfectly as well. We've told that story many times On the air with With Steve asking and and how that decision was derived the the Belmont that year. Of course and tomorrow I should mention at eleven bryant is GonNa join us as the hall of fame. Inductees are announced rags. Riches among the nominees. The finalists as it were and but those three races. I mean that was as great a triple crown as you're ever GonNa say at half and then unbridled and what ended up being kind of a book end season for him The Derby win first half of the year the Breeders Cup Classic Win at the end of the year derbies on May theft had these winners in going back. A few years monarchos was also. That was my first. Derby and Monarchos went on a fifth swail. Eighty four on the fifth spectacular bid. The Fifth Secretariat was on the fifth and from all reports virtual secretary continues to do well out of his virtual derby. Seems to have snap back and citation to citations citations eager for eager for a rematch. The the other may fifth Derby winners decidedly in sixty two. There's there's actually a couple of somewhat obscure the lesser known and lesser celebrated Derby Winners On the September fifth date but decidedly in sixty two and that. That is one that you don't. I don't know why that was a great happen to be a very good season and Ri- Dan Part of that. He finished third but Hard tack and decidedly the Derby winner that year and any one decidedly decisively and decidedly over Roman line. Of COURSE HORATIO. Loro go back a little further. Needles needles is well celebrated certainly Absolutely needles nineteen fifty-six with Dave herb and fifty one go back another five years fifty one count turf conn McCreary. That's a somewhat that that that's a somewhat obscure group to. Actually you look at fifty one count turf Royal Mustang Ru Phil de Fanfare not a lot of the counterpoint. Who went on and won to counterpoint win the preakness Belmont perhaps the best props the best name in the in that in that fifty one derby Mama Luke was last for for CV Whitney. That's Great Mameluke. Pretty good nine thousand thirty four cavalcade the UH the winter over discovery and certainly That was a actually. There's a few solid performance out of that group With with with cavalcade and discovery one too but then only one more stonestreet in two thousand nineteen Await stone streaked. Two words. Not like our stonestreet today. Just eight horse field and that is Picture of stonestreet gotTa look up a little bit. Know very little about stonestreet. One of those turn of the century winners. That isn't as I really just as not not as well known. So there's your historic perspective on Derby's and so zero and Nascar today and if this was scrabble it'd be a big day because you've got Z's and both of them Zito Carl Asker. I put up the video. That you'll enjoy mean we'll listen obviously will listen to A couple of Derby's this morning but had to put up the the amazing capture that is one of the most winning moments in racing history. I would I would guess. I mean I was at not Carl. Nascar giving the play by play to Francis Gender and the ninety. She was ninety one ninety two at the time and it. It's tough you watched it this morning. And when I in Wilkes said I connected and and any Nah once he connected with Carl to make sure he was. GonNa be around. I mean who who isn't around right now but I went and I pulled up that that youtube clip. It's about a minute and ten seconds and it's and it's funny because there's two different versions of it one They they used when later when Mrs Gender is being interviewed but the the one that they they go to you you can tell that Dave Johnson and Jim McKay and whoever else is on the broadcast. I there's I think there's definitely a case of voice and maybe Al Michaels.

"Doubt about that. There's a whole list of different methodologies that can be chosen from And the one thing that I think is clear though if you look at the reactions on social media yesterday and you alluded to it for. Its a very popular decision with the horse players. One that they have been heard and to that it You know as far as the Jackpot and just the perception being that the track is not getting too greedy Some people use the word robbed which you know. You see things like that out there. But as far as the their feelings about certain jackpots and methodologies of wagers the most important thing is that they feel that. We're being fair to the horse player so beyond that we'll have to see what else we can do. For the wager well It was a very welcome turnabout and it was instantly recognized and people were actually very gratified. Surprise John at at how quickly and the opportunity I I I think it really the way it played out was fortuitous because the fact that united towed could not get the programming done in time for the start of the sequence that that ended up being really fortunate and then in the interim Obviously you and management sat down and I do have to ask about an increased the opportunity out of Yes for an increase social media a communication vehicle. Because there's very little information on the website about the racing product and really a a meager presence on on twitter for instance in terms of communicating to players. So I have to speak to that in two ways. First of all social media that twitter has been a little bit slow to catch on in this region. That's the first thing that's not an excuse. It's just the fact second of all everybody does need understand something that they may. Not Wild horse racing does go on. Will.

"Whatever the year I guess it was and spoke to him about a year or something and I always run into the Steinbrenner family. They say you talk to Hank lately. I said you're not too sales oriented Jessen Kevin runs. You know they help sell James in the Yankees and the same family to me. It was always close but hank and I had this incredible relationship with reading and talking about breeding. He was basically one of the guys that I would say was right up there. The mind inbreeding was beyond belief and he was responsible over. The years has so many good horses that kingsman has we talk about the inbreeding and components and chromosomal how works and he was in like a genius type of guy when it came to breeding. Nobody I don't think anybody knew that I wanted to share that with your audience. Because obviously you know you think Steinbrenner's do you think about the Yankees and you know the Great Dynasty. They had but he was into horses and he was just great and is fantastic. It's funny story about when I told you hard to get to. I think Dan Pride at the time was working for Darley and he goes to the MIC. I need hanks I I don't how do you know we're friendly he goes? I need hanks but his number and I remind number Daniel kids trainers and felt that a place and later apologized but that was because there were Darlie I think families working for Darley and I think they were trying to buy and coolmore got involved as they wound up with adjusted worrier. But Hank was pretty sure. Hank was did the meeting on that one and He was just a very interesting very interesting. I'll tell you another quick. Who Thousand Nine Pool with men ride service to the two thousand nine World Series game and he? I saw him walking on the field. You know I guess you know Steinbrenner family Jess and Jennifer and Hank and HAL. Obviously they will go and get the trophy and I had called them because it looks to me that he was so proud of that night. I call them right after the late night and I had driven from upstate with the guys where you live in Saratoga and and It was a great night that night. The two thousand nine world series but the little special guy really guy was more people would have known him but stay by himself it. It seemed that the you know the consensus out. There was obviously given cigarettes sixty three years old. And you know the fact that actually George lived to a fairly ripe old age himself and so this I think seem to really shake people up and and and you know not a you know. It's not corona related But He he is among the family as the spite being involved in all the different areas He he was the least visible. You know the one that You know I'm glad you mentioned. I'm glad you mentioned Tom. Jimmy Ventura because I mentioned yesterday. I mentioned that Hank is on the board of OB S and You know his his the the farm. The kinsman the forces in Ocala and really tied and and like like George I mean he seemed to really enjoy the horse side of it and it seemed like a F- a real outlet Both for his father and for him. Yeah I you know. It's funny because when I talked to you know what he'd say to me say and did you talk to George lately. He never call him. My Father Daddy. Talk Georgia.

"Sirius Xm ports presents. With Steve Horse racing handicapping interviews. This is stupid a very good Wednesday. I'M GONNA say baseball fans how. `Bout that baseball and racing fats. We may have. We may have a a baseball special you today. You're saying what do you mean you'll it'll it'll come together it'll come together and some of it Sad tinged with sadness Because Nick Zito is going to join us after the first break and nick will talk about his really is is his whole professional career and the relationship with Hank Steinbrenner. And of course nick One of the trainers that had horses For the Steinbrenner family and kinsmen and so Nick is going to join us. And you know. Obviously there's the there's the baseball tight and then later actually an hour to I don't know how many of you are enjoying these greatest games of all time segments that are turning up on a lot of sports networks but last night game one of the nineteen eighty eight world series and Kirk. Gibson's home run. And whether you whether you heard and remember the Vin. Scully call I suppose if you're if you're La Basin than dodger faithful locally or whether you remember from the national side and Jack Buck. I don't believe what I just saw either way. Either way it it is one of the most memorable moments in baseball and then really in in sports history certainly from the last you know forty fifty years. And there's a very distinct Tien from your saying. What could this possibly LASORDA? Turns up that you know it at the racetrack. Now and then but no. It's not it's Mitch. Pool who you may have read about yesterday in USA. Today Mitch at the time was the clubhouse attendant the Batboy essentially at the time and is now decades later the longest the longest tenured employees of the Los Angeles dodgers. And he's an owner. He's in on fast. Pharaoh with Jeff Bondi and Mitch was instrumental. Because Kirk Gibson wasn't gonNA play. I'll let him tell the whole story if you'd some of you probably saw the piece in USA Today and then watch the game last night. I Know Mitch. Watch the game last night. So we'll talk to Mitch Pool and potentially I'm waiting for the confirmation Victor Martinez Victor Martinez King Guillermo. Who had a very nice work this morning as he prepares for the Arkansas Derby and we didn't get a chance to talk to victor in the aftermath of Tampa of the Tampa Bay Derby. But this is you know another interesting horse. That bubble to the surface and given the circumstances you know has been a little at a sight outta mind so maybe a baseball team the at the races. Hank Steinbrenner Mitch Pool Fifty Martinez all right. So in addition Seth Merrill later. We'll probably look at Tampa with seth. And I think Steve Haskins today because Steve's tied up tomorrow with with Joan and her she's got a Steve explained when I was having my issues. Steve explained the Joan has had her share so she's got an appointment tomorrow that Steve is taking her to now. I said why why not today. So Steve Ask probably today as well and we'll get his impressions of the. The Oakland stake winner and start to You know whatever whatever topic as as we discovered yesterday with the I mean not that that's new but I think andy well Andy Johnny really all the regulars the never know where sometimes we're the conversation leads but Steve asking today John Lewis is going to join us and call call it mea culpa Wednesday. I don't know last last Tuesday. Of course here was the fauner force out on their five and the D Q sent people you know on tilt and it has actually actually interesting as Marcus Hershey yesterday and makes the market's for the visit yesterday which included a very good couple of very nice pushes although that one horse that one I got back down to nothing at will rogers that eight to one shot Bill Maurice and had the best last race buyer there were there were reasons the Vet Sukhoi Su Eichel Berry but didn't expect didn't expect him to go off to one as the favorite but still Marcus Marcus zeroed in on him anyway. Yes last week with the founder Park. Pick five and Chris CA- to lack nice enough to visit with us. We're we got a similar situation but a little different and with a a happy resolution. Frankly as to what happened yesterday. With will rogers and when we were talking with. Marcus and I had heard from Eric on twitter that there had been discussion and I guess. Tv G had said something about it on Sunday or Monday. That will rogers was going to move their jet. They're pick five to a jackpot and it was supposed to start as a jackpot a cruel yesterday and I asked. I reached out to John. Lewis right away and then he got back to me a little bit later in the morning confirming that that yes. I mean that the tote company was working on the technical aspect of changing the programming. But that yes they were going to start yesterday. Well then then and I. I wanted to make sure to get that information out to people who were curious before the sequence started which was the second race so I sent out a tweet confirming you know the speculation. That will rogers was going to do this and and as we talk yesterday when it came up particularly with Andy You know we both. We were both disdainful of Jack Jackpot. Bet For all the reasons that you would be down on. The concept in holds money out of circulation builds itself on the back of smaller bettors is advertised as a bit of a come on no twenty cents or fifty cents and you can win. Yeah yeah sure And you know. And then the worst part is that when we get to distribution days invariably the sequences impossible for anybody with small money. That that to me is a lot of times. The you know the most irksome aspect anyway. Mid-afternoon John Lees came back and said that a couple of things I mean. There was a Utah outcry when I put out that confirmation of the Jackpot concept that they were moving to people. Were just astounded. They were aghast at it. Because it's been an instant hit they'd only run for five cards and and the thing is pulling two hundred thousand in handle a day so everybody was like. Why would you do this? Well fortunately and to their great credit and John John's going to join us they saw and they don't have they really do not have a you know they got the Cherokee Casino moniker. But they don't have a real social media presence at will rogers but they saw at John showed management the backlash and the outrage on twitter. And it just so happens that united tote could not get the programming done in time for the second race yesterday and so the bets were not processed as Jackpot so the Jackpot did not start and then as they discussed it over the afternoon. Management said okay if the public if you know if the public doesn't want it if the horse players are turned off we won't do it so well done and then people So then when John tweeted later that it would remain a conventional pick five and then I you know I echoed it and tried to get it out to the people that had seen the news from earlier in the afternoon and people were really impressed and rightly so that that will rogers responded the way they did and saw that this was a mistake and then they just a stick with the conventional daily pick five and yesterday actually kind of chalked out and they give you an idea. It drew one hundred seventy seven thousand five hundred on Monday yesterday. Hundred Ninety four thousand and it It ended up paying two hundred and eighty dollars. And it had a sequence really of you know of mostly favorites. Although the the three to five favorite woods of Congress in the anchor leg sex failed to win but the second choice came in and So the sequence the sequence went like this honest and lucky. Who was the third choice? Eight dollars winter And then second choice at just under two one sedaris and second choice. Concrete Finisher Verizon. Oh gelding trainer Ron David and the fourth leg. It's yes the near second choice just over five to a yes. It's true Coul- for math. Yates before Burr back from our bureau area again Mark Beers couple of days in a row..

How a 'Flipped Palate' Affects a Racing Horse

"Nick Zito sent out Kentucky. Derby runner-up is box in the Belmont stakes. After having won the Florida Derby icebox went off as the three to one favorite in the test of the champion. But he finished ninth after the race. Zito said that icebox had flipped his Palette which caused his dull finish. So what does that mean. Take the tip of your tongue and tickle the back of your mouth make sure due to keep that soft tissue back. They're soft don't stiff in your throat. Okay that soft tissue. You're feeling with your tongue. Is Your soft oft pallet with race. Horses that soft palate can flip up and sit. On top of the EPA Gladys the EPA gladys is the little flap of skin skin in the back of your throat. That makes sure you don't swallow food down your windpipe or breathe into your stomach instead of your lungs. So when the soft palate sits it's on that EPA gladys the airway is partially obstructed. And the Horse isn't getting all the fuel it needs now. Typically the cure for a flipped pallet. Hallett is a minor surgical procedure to lift the Palette. So it doesn't flip up. It sounds relatively simple and in theory the horse should return to form thereafter rafter. But in the case of icebox after that throat surgery he finished off the board in the Haskell travers and the Monmouth Cup in fact icebox never won another race and finished in the top three in one allowance race over the next year and a half his final start. Art was an eleventh in the two thousand Eleven Breeders Cup classic. So here's the question. Is there a little more to it when a horse flips. It's pallet. It seems that that some researchers at Cornell University have been investigating that very question and one of those investigators. Dr Norm Ducharme joins us here on the gate with some surprising results. It's alternate and one of those investigators. Dr Jonathan Chatham joins us here on the gate with some surprising results. Alternate Ed and one of those investigators. Dr Martin Bucer. Coney joins US here on the gate with some surprising results. Your colleagues and you have spent a great deal of time researching researching what causes the soft palate to be displaced. What have you found so we found that in the earlier about historically shortly? We used to think that I was always the pallets fault that something was wrong with the pallid itself and that's led to a lot of treatment targeting the pallet but we found that it's the position of the larynx voice box that stabilizes the upper airway horses that exercise. This is and this is Pacific to race horses or horses that do more than just trotting any horse. Galloping race of the our study was focus on them as horses and we found that one specific muscle and they could be others as well. Just one that there's more studies on fatigues a few seconds before the Horse Displaces Palate is upper airway become loose quote unquote. And then the polit spices. The Racehorse In the second career often can become a sport horse and being the same greed so but if you relate into other functions that complained and many of the sport anymore says on a horse that this thing is talent is the normal noise. He's so the displacement of palate causes an obstruction to the airflow but unless the horse needs maximum airflow flow capacity the obstruction does not interfere or is unlikely to interfere with the performance of the Horse. But the horse the second thing that a pal how displacement does in the vast majority of horses as it creates an abnormal up arrest story noise often referred to as snoring or gurgling really. It's the same structure that people that snore vibration of the palate and horses is that displays the Palette of vibration of Palate as well and have normal noise affects the perception of judge. This writer in in the sports world. Can you please explain what the common surgical procedure is. How does the Pallet get lifted up? It's the airflow during excellence. And that lifts the Palette and causing obstruction during excavation and that's opposed to most other obstruction in the worst is anyway which happens during installation so during acceleration wants to the boys boxes below the Palette. The Palette is like Cassandra or spinnaker in an airflow get caught and the airflow and and lifts it up and vibrates just like you and I. We were snoring. The that's probably the proper metaphor accepting happens while racing or galloping horses now if the issue is muscle fatigue in the soft palate is that indicative negative of General Muscle Fatigue in the Horse in other words is the horse just destined not to run that fast no there. It's and then muscle fatigue in the muscles that controlled the position of voice box. We don't know that the soft palate actually fatigues south excellent. Maybe a an innocent bystander in that area were too soft pilots natural strength and fatigue May may not be able to prevent displacement. When it's an in nonsense illogical position meaning it sticking stuck on the air flow in the middle of the airflow but to come back to the fatigue? So so we've and this paper here that we're referring discovering muscles. Fatigue is is the likely cause of displacement and most forces right forces that is but they sit in their first. I'll answer question to through faith. The first question is is the muscle the horse just fatigue and this is just one of many muscles that are fatigue and and the answer is it's no. This seems to be specific to the muscle that controls the upper airways not the entire worse. There's different type above muscle their arrest story muscle which are meant to function all the time. And there's muscle us When the horses are galloping the skeletal muscle and the training of horses is focused on training them to be able to compete athletically? Let it quickly really focusing on their cardiovascular fitness as well as their skeletal muscle fitness. But we're not sure that the upper for airway current training at that are optimized for the upper airways voices and they might not be optimized optimizing for this group of forces that are predisposed to it because they have the wrong muscle fiber
