"Be the smart money, the most advanced handicapping system on the market. Okay, welcome back. 12 big races from around the country that we're looking at on tonight's edition of the weekend stakes preview presented by naira bets and they've got three goodies right here in Altoona, Iowa tomorrow night bob, race 7 on the Prairie Meadows card is the grade three $225,000 Iowa oaks three year old Phillies going a mile and a 16th field of 8 set to go to post here where you end up. Well, first of all, it's a shame to me that both horseshoe Indiana and pray Meadows have their big races on the same night, especially when you've got three year old colts and three year old Phillies going long on the dirt, I mean, it just basically digging from the same pool of horses and I would think horseshoe Indiana has a bit of an advantage. Geographically, it's interesting, like you mentioned in the previous segment, the two colds that decided to raise it Indiana what I think is a tougher race than the Iowa Derby. But this race is pretty interesting. It looks like a very competitive renewal of the Iowa oaks. Grade three status. They always draw a decent field of Phillies for this. I was intrigued by the 8 horse in here, a no silver spoon here, she's a three year old connect Philly, when she when she debuted April 27th at Keenan, she was claimed, by Jeff hiles and rocket ship bracing LLC, not a big stable. Off of Brad Cox for $100,000, and they must have felt pretty good when they watched the race, knew they dropped the claim and watched her waltz in, geared down under flavian Pratt by 8 and three quarter lengths. They knew they got a good one. The original owners paid. A 125,000 when she was a two year old, they got her for 25,000 left. They have a very nice filly on their hands. She then ran June 11th at Churchill, she trains out at high point training center. Three to 5 favorite they ran a very good race and got reeled in, time was good, solid Philly, could be interesting to see what she does in her stakes debut, the 8 no silver spoons here. My selection is the four butter bean. Butter bean ran a monster raised the prep race for the Iowa oaks the Panthers and I think it's just an improving Philly getting better all the time has proven herself on the race which actually ran her best race here by some ways and I think in her 8th lifetime star she's got a big shot to be a grade free winner in the Iowa oaks. Number four butter beans my pick. All right, she is 5 to one on the morning line. We're both going to try to beat the morning line favorite candy raid who's 5 to two. I'm not sure she'll be the favorite in the race, but she did run in the Kentucky oaks two starts back. It was only beaten 7 lengths by secret oath and only 5 links by nest and either one of them would be one to 9 if they were in this field. I went with the pletcher trainee falconet, liked what I've seen from her in her last two starts. I wanted a mile and a 16th to won the one turn mile at Churchill last time out. She's really bred to run all day being by uncle mo out of a summer bird mayor and looks like she's headed the right direction Javier castellano coming out to ride her amongst others on the big night tomorrow at Prairie Meadows. So falconet for me and butter bean for bob in the grade three Iowa oaks. Race 8 on the card tomorrow, the quarter $1 million Iowa Derby for the three year olds going a mile in a 16th. This is a not a graded race, which may have some of the reasoning why actuator and rattle and roll did not run here. We saw stiletto boy win this race last year, very impressively catapulted him to being sold for $420,000 and he's become one of the better handicap horses out on the West Coast for Billy mowry since then. So now with the two likely scratches down bob, we're down to a field of 8 set to go to post here. Morning line favorite is Todd pletcher's major general. Yeah, first of all, I remember when stiletto boy got purchased last year and we thought they paid a lot of money four 20 now it looks like great value as it turned out really, really shrewd auctioned by. He wired the field and the Iowa Derby last year for trainer Doug Anderson. We thought he was a nice cold, but when they paid for four 24, I thought that was a little exorbitant, but he's proven me more than wrong. The three major general here is a very, very difficult read, obviously. He was a precocious two year old, he won first out at Saratoga. He then stepped up to a route for the first time picked off the grade three Iroquois, stumbled at the start, lost his chance in the Tampa Bay Derby, ran in the form of his Lexington has been Frank he finished second by a length beaten by tawny poor, of course he impressive one of the Ohio Derby. Any ran into a monster called Jack Christopher and just quit, spat it, no interest, tried the turf, didn't seem to like the turf, he gets Lasix for the first time. High level connections here at Todd pleasure and Javier castellano, he's a very interesting entrant, as is Conor, who's just running really, really fast races sprinting for Mike Tomlinson's son of Jimmy creed, question whether he can go the route. I went ahead and picked big blue line. The two wars and here is versatile horses, one is last two starts on the lead knowing parameters well. It's always important to have tactical speed. Paul McGee over the years when he ships up to parade Meadows, has a very, very good record. I think this is a very talented horse and in a wide open race like the booking of David Cabrera as well, outstanding local writer. And we'll see what he does, but I'm going to go ahead and select the two big blue line. I'm going to use big blue line as well, but I'm going to pick number 5 kanaga on top. I think even though he's been nothing but sprinting lately, he shouldn't have much trouble stretching out a little bit, even though he's by Jimmy creed, or you think sprint when you think Jimmy creed. But out of a Niagara causeway mayor, that sounds like he's bred to run all day at least on a damn side and I didn't see anything in his 6 or 7 furlong races to make me think that going another furlong and a half is going to be a big problem for him. He just looks like he's better than these right now. He's Michael Tomlinson has found himself a speedy horse and a very talented horse as a three year old, he's much better now as a three year old than he was as a two year old, so we'll see if he handles the two turn test in the Iowa Derby release 8 tomorrow.

"Can preview addition as I said, we talked a fair bit about the big races at fairgrounds earlier on the weeks. I didn't want to dwell too much on them. I do want to remind you again about that $500,000 guaranteed. Late pick 5, but it's funny I use optics EQ as a tool. And I like to use the plot in the trip notes the most. That's kind of the two things I use the most. And I looked up the plot of the risen star and it was like, it was a little confusing to me. I just was not, you know, I think with a lot of handicapping software or just basic PPs, like you have, you know, you have your comfort zone of those things, but obviously you see patterns you like or you see a race you might like and there's different reasons for that. And with the plot, there's kind of that too, right? There's certain plot setups that you're just like, yeah, like this looks really good for this horse or this horse and what I ended up coming away with was I think epicenter. Who I like based off that, but it's kind of a funky plot. And so I was just with it I looked and it was a red plot fit. So I was like, oh, okay, well, that's one thing I like about them. They will tell you, like, hey, this isn't the best race to use our software. So big shout out to that. In fact, I got to get John Doyle from optics on sometimes soon. Shout out, John, we haven't had him on in a long time. Good guy too. The Rachel Alexandra we talked a fair bit about again with Marcus. I did think I noticed just might is back in after that DQ last time around. And I'm a little surprised maybe I shouldn't be. It's the colonel power. It's race 7. Starts in all stakes pick four. I don't know how just might gets in a turf sprint. And it's the only speed horse in there. Like there's just really no other kind of which a turf sprint you just think there's always a lot of speed. Now there's a Todd pletcher horse that's coming in from overseas, who very well could be could be desperate. You see a lot of the comments towards the rear of midfield, midfield on the near side. Attract leaders. So, you know, it doesn't look like a heavy speed horse. And I just feel like this horse is just gonna go out and do what he did last time. Now last time, as he was crossing over he apparently cut in front of that horse because that's why they dequeued him, but he's going to have to be double tough in this race. If he runs to his ability, because he just looks like he has such a pace advantage. And if you watch his, you know, he's had this nice little win streak going other than that Phoenix steaks, but his grass race is even going back to colonial. Like, you know, he kind of hits, he doesn't have like a huge passing gear. His best races seem to be when he is up front and clears off. You know, when he won the mighty bow at Churchill, he was a length in front the whole way. His two wins at colonial Churchill over the summer, one he was on the lead and held pretty game. That was the lady shiver. No, Louisville, third red society. The Chesapeake like he had to really work for, didn't get to leave mucho. That was a dirt race, though. But if you look at his last couple, the last three, they've been these big open length winds dirt and turf and it's just because he's getting out front clear. And so I just think he's got a real big advantage in this race. Cowan, who was second behind him last time and got promoted to the win shows up in this race as well. And then strike me down who's a stablemate of just mites for Michelle level, Jerry Romans. Dinner with Jerry Romans one night last year in colonial. He was very nice. We had some fundamental disagreements. On some racing stuff, but like in a great friendly debate kind of way. So shout out cheery. But strike me down kind of a cool horse, so. Excited to, it's just a cool car at all together. I mean, it really is. The Alstom memorial is what starts that half a $1 million guaranteed pick 5. Pass the plate Paul McGee coming off a nice win in the krantz last time out and draws down on the rail. This horse is kind of just been plugging away for a little while. I remember he was third this race last year, but I remember him when he was first getting started. There was a little bit of hype around this horse because we had Paul McGee on and I feel like it was early in that horse career like when he was kind of getting the hype. I saw Paul's brother Marty. He was at Tampa Bay downs for the big Sam F Davis weekend, but yeah, again, that late pick 5s that do the mine shaft is they still haven't gone fine. I think it goes final on Thursday for the morning line and stuff. I'm curious to see how this race gets set because I kind of think olympiad off that last, but big figure Gulf Stream horses always scare me. Like big length big figure golf tomorrows. And he was three to 5, right? So he was supposed to try out some of that race and he just kind of freewheel a really good trip, but Chad brownson's over miles D I know we talked about this Marcus, like I said, I don't want to dig into these races too much because we already talked about it. I feel like every show is just going to be preview and fairgrounds, all weekend. So they're the home team. We want to give them a moment. Over Laurel, the Babs fritzie and the general George. Part of a stakes laden card in Maryland obviously but a tough winter for them. We haven't talked a lot of Maryland and other than obviously pimlico where the Preakness day. I mean, they're big days. They kind of cluster a lot of these like hundred grand or stuff, but this is usually kind of a big, they're big winter card, I guess. And there's a few very excited for cord maker who we saw at colonial this summer who's really, really nice runner. Glass ceiling for Charlie baker comes down from aqueduct, and I thought, on the optics plot looked very, very dangerous in the Barbara fritchie steaks. As kind of a just off the pacer, but all the speed is coming from the outside and going to come down. So again, it kind of depends on how it maybe sets up, but if glass ceiling kind of May be able to secure a spot forth in behind the top three horses because it looks like 5, 6 and 7 all kind of have some good early foot and regal retort for asthma and I think another one who is a little bit interesting. In the race was a 12 length winner at Churchill. Those big wins, they're so they jump off the page and a lot of times they jump off the page from a figure standpoint, but I swear sometimes it's just that the other horses don't run..

"Don't want to come on radio, that's cool. You can email your question to me might get horse racing radio dot net and I will ask Dale the question for you. So either way, we're about 20 minutes away from you be the host and Dale Romans. So keep that in mind and get ready to call in here. I'll give you the number shortly. James Scully is with me now, James good morning, my friend. Good morning, Mike. You know, so many listeners have had the privilege to listen to you along with Bobby Newman on the brisk dot com call and show the past several weeks. And first of all, I want to thank you for taking time to do that every week with Bobby. Your insight is fantastic. Well, I appreciate that, Mike. You know, I love talking about horse racing and Bobby is a great, I think he does a great job host in and I think we have a good report together and really enjoying working with him so far. So yeah, this is the time of year or two to really start getting excited. We got these Derby qualifiers this week and then really February and March is when I like kids a little bit of a different schedule this year where there was a break from January 1st, till this weekend. And I think so back loaded a little bit some of these stead races and it makes for a more exciting February and March. You know, I got to point out the fact that it wasn't easy for you to step into that brisk dot com college show. You had done it prior filling in from time to time for Ed derosa, but isn't that like kind of following Derek Jeter when you have to move into the lineup after that? Well, you know it. There's no doubt about it. It did a great job. And you know, I'm good for I'm Friends with Ed and really respect him and wish him the best in his future endeavors, but you're right. He did a great job. And I mean, Bobby as well. You know, he's still relatively new to that show. And I think he's doing a fan job fantastic performance hosting it. So per se had to become words, Mike and look forward to I'm excited to talk about some horse racing with you. Yeah, I'm excited to see who you like in these stakes races. I mentioned there are 6 stakes races at the fairgrounds today. The first of which is the Duncan F Kenner stakes that's a $100,000 5 and a half for a long turf sprint. It's race number 8 with a post time of four 25 eastern that's three 25 locally in the New Orleans area. These 5 and a half for a long turf sprints are always a head scratcher to me, James. How did you see this one? Well, I mean, success on spreading on the turf is obviously a plus, but I usually look at these tarp sprints, Mike, when I'm handicapping them just like they're 5 and a half for a long dirt races. I think TERF spurning is different dimension from turf routing. And I sort of played accordingly. I looked at looking at the doctor Kenner. I mean, just my is going to be extremely difficult to beat it appears to me. This 6 year old gelding has really come into top form over the winter. He started getting good last fall for Michelle level. I love how he has won on both the dirt and turf so far this mean it's fairgrounds. And he's really going to take some beating. Now there is some other speed in the race and while I don't think any of the other speed will beat just might. There is a little bit of a potential for mania wall to get a good setup. I know I'm being a little bit chalky with my take on this Kenner with the favorite like we favor and second choice, but to me, I really don't think I'd be surprised if any of the other runners wanted Mike and I think just my source to be. Oftentimes, we talk about the fact that these 5 and a half furlong turf sprints are not won by horses that race on the lead, but by horses that come from further back, you don't think that's the case in this one. You think just might is just too good. I do. And I really think you're looking if you're trying to beat just my you're really hoping that sort of alford James catches a fire from the rail switching from a synthetic win to the turf. He's a versatile gelding. He's run second on the turf before, but it's been a long time since he's been on the grass and once you get past him, there is like some horses might like to run up close, but they don't have a lot of gas. So if there's a potential for just Mike to get clear early, that would make his task a lot easier, I think, Mike. All right, that's the 8th race, the tenth race on the card at the fairgrounds today is the Marie krantz memorial, which is a mile in the 16th and the turf it's for the Phillies and mayors, four year olds and up $100,000 purse. And this is a really well balanced field. It's a big field. And James to me, when I looked at it, I thought it was a really good betting race. Yeah, absolutely. I thought this race number ten kicks off the $250,000 guaranteed pick 5 and there's two turf races in the sequence of the krantz in the Bradley and they both got fulfills my 12 horses. They're going to have favorites in them, it's gone and two Emmy, so we'll get to it a little bit. But you can make a case for a lot of other runners in there and definitely the current is a race where I'll just say first off about it. I heard yesterday hasn't been confirmed yet, but I heard that there was a good chance that summer and Saratoga might scratch over concerns over the footing. She doesn't like ground or apparently, but still don't quote me on that so you see it. My first take on it was just looking at the race. I thought number one of Scott, you have to absolutely respect her. That class might travel, it'll be our first start over the fairgrounds tarfa Eddie canally. But this mayor kept outstanding company last fall and summer and just last year. And sort of drop it down a little bit, not sorta. It is dropping down in class in the spot. Merits respect. I know the inside post mic have been real favorable on the main track. The terfs a little bit I'm not sure if it's going to play that way as well, but I wouldn't be surprised if in fact post reform boil on the grass and Scott definitely merits serious. However, I did go my top choice in this race while you have gone on almost I race tickets. I like number ten pass the plate. This is a 5 year old mayor for Paul McGee that last year coming off of a decent effort on the main track at Churchill downs, won the pago hop in her first race at fairgrounds on a good course at off course. She got up that day to win by a nose, she likes fairgrounds, hit the board at three or four starts to turf at fairgrounds. And I just think that her race is last fall. Paul McGee freshened her in July after a third and a stakes at Ellis. She came back with a fourth in the one dreamer against the Hindi Woods a pretty solid field a fast closing third against the stakes caliber allowance field at keelin princess causeway one that. And then last time erased a little bit evenly, but did pass horses in the stretch to be forth in the. I think she's more than capable of carrying her form forward. And if anybody be subscribed, I like number ten pass the plate. She's gonna be in my top choice Mike. Yeah, it gets back to what appears to be her preferred surface. So we'll see a pass the blade at 6 to one on the morning line could bolster up some of those pick three pick four pick 6 tickets. Why not? The silver bullet day is the race following that one. And three year old Phillies looking to take the next step to the Kentucky oaks, mile and 70 yards on the main track. Another pretty well balanced field. Al stahl was with me earlier talking about his contender, fanny and Freddy, who will break from the inside post 5 to two on the morning line, but there are a lot of ways you can go in this one. Yeah, absolutely. I thought Fannie and Freddie moved perhaps a little bit too soon last time in that on top of all, I mean, you can obviously make that case. He stuck the lead in upper stretch opened up and then got nailed late by north country. And it's a solid effort. It didn't come back extremely fast. I look at it at this race. It has a little bit of intrigue because number four sweetest pie is shipping in from for Todd pleasure from Palm Beach.

"And we're just going to focus on the numbers and you always look for that hope. I always look at see where you can develop the course that you are looking to claim, obviously. John T's joining us here on the show. Last time we had yonjan, I think, was right after the sycamore win with Zulu alphabet in late 2018, so it's been a while it's obviously had a couple great stakes wins since then. You guys have had a career year in terms of earnings this year. Zulu alpha was a horse. I think he only had him for the one star. If I remember, what was it kind of known that that was going to be the case or did you think you might get to keep him for a while? You know, it's a little bit of a little bit of both. I know mister Michael hoy is a great friend of ours and made him to a great connections through Jared Hughes and mister hooting Moore. In the past. So we had that connection that had trained for both hoy and hoodie at the same time. So having the option to claim for almost ahoy, that type of horse, you know, you don't turn it down. We had them, we're looking to run them. I think it was in the shadow of mile. But he got I don't think he got any kind of eligible, I believe. So luckily for us, he we skipped that race and ended up in the sycamore and obviously it's just a race that we'll never forget. He is a horse that will never forget. It's an experience that will never forget. And something like that, I'm very grateful that mister hoy gave me the opportunity to be a part of this horses beginning in wonderful career. When the horses decided to move, he went to a track a circuit that I was not ready to go to yet just didn't have the quality or the numbers, of course, just to go back out to New York and Florida. So Mike maker was the right choice and mister Lloyd and maker have a good history. So listen, it's a team playing game here and I'm a team player. So I was very happy to just be a part of it. Yeah, and just retired not all that long ago, right? I mean, it was incredible running at. Yeah. Science is a great word, but we followed in. We cheated on each other. So I'm a team player with everybody. I would share for fellow trainers, you know, I'd like to see you, Jason bark, they won the same race this year and was his first greatest steak space and I was so happy for him and we were both sycamore, great three winners and brothers at this point. It's funny. Earlier this year, shari deva won her first graded stakes race and it was the same race that norm cassi had won his first graded stakes race at Churchill a turf race. I forget which one it was, but it was a grade three and I always loved that kind of stuff comes up and Barkley. I've had him on the show and got to know him a little bit and seems like very, very nice guy. So I agree. It is neat to see your peers kind of experience those successes because you know in reality and hope and what you hope for is you're going to be competing with those folks for 20, 30 years if everything goes right, right? Absolutely. And that's the thing that I always tell my guys my Friends and anybody that's in coming into the training game right now. We're not foes. We're not enemies. We're competitive and competing against each other. But I also like Jason, I always tell him I'm always cheering for him when he wins. I'm cinematheques and all my Friends back in New York raised handle a guy Lacey got that call to David. I mean, I am a friend out just because this is a new era right now. And you're starting to see the new generation of trainers coming up. So if you see these young trainers coming up and winning and doing well, they're going to be looking for the next better trainer. The next young trainer. Who else is doing well? So if we have Jason Barclays doing good, it's very handle. It's lazy got the Carlos David, you got Matt charge, you know, they're doing good. Who's the next guys coming up with doing well, just as good. Let's look up Johnny Ortiz. It's a fairly competition and we're all will end up getting the business because I guess as you know it's a game that always changes the decades always changed. So we're starting to see a new change. The game has changed it itself. And I think that the new generation coming up is pretty sharp. You mentioned mucho a little bit earlier and wanted to talk about him more. You guys played for 80,000. And obviously, you know, it's a high price claim. You want an optional claim or Churchill with him first after the claim. I gotta fix that to makes the whole claiming price thing a little bit easier to get one of the bank right away. Oh, absolutely. I mean, that's the only key goal. We haven't had a lot of fun with mucho. We try to drop on him for 62.5 when he was cleaned off by I think Mac and cheese was it. And we got out shook. I think it was Paul McGee, wasn't it? Yeah, sorry. So Paul McGee claimed the horse to 62 5 and he came back in 12 days later for 80. And I called a couple of guys and one guy decided not to go in for him. So I call my regular crew crew. Mister Bill.

"A Tara for Brad Cox's in here, the horse was in great form, ended up trying to locust grove in a mile of 16th, didn't fare as well. That was against she dares the devil, and in futon, who were obviously very, very good and probably at their best better than what she's going to be facing today. I do think the cut back to the one turn mile is somewhat interesting, because this is a horse who hasn't run the one turn miles done a lot of two turnout. Now, the groupie doll is a one and a half turn, because remember at Ellis, they start on that turn for the mile races. But I'm curious to see if maybe this is something that helps her. You know, she's such a high priced yearling type, for Don Alberto, but, you know, she's just taking a little while to get going, but after that long injury and after 2019, she's been pretty darn good, so curious to see what happens with that would pass the plate comes into the chalukya has been running on turf primarily, but this one's fair and I'll write on main tracks before, had a win in an allowance race and then second the misses revere, which were both off the turf events for a Paul McGee and the silverton hill folks. Obligatory is also in the chalukya and she was in the Raven run last time out and you know she ran very good in the cotillion behind clearer kind of was close up early on. Last time just got she was back last breaking from the outside post and I was really surprised getting bet to favoritism there. That was the one caramel swirl one. Got a sick head bob over Joyce rocket who was a big long shot and kind of fired a big one. I just think she was too far back to really make any damage or to do any damage. You'd think with kind of the quote unquote lack of a true pace set in here that maybe this is the kind of race where she can be closer up and if she fires could be a little bit dangerous. I mentioned earlier the native diver at del mar, the grade three feature for the Saturday program and a Larry Coleman back to Mike. John Lisa, who filled unless we I think John does a really good job. I don't think he gets talked about enough as being a very good race collar. Just extremely accurate. I feel like he's one of those guys like I feel like you can really trust what he's telling you. And Larry is too. But I don't know. I just think he does a really good job and doesn't get mentioned enough. Shout out John Lee. You do a really good job. The native diver. Grade three event 100,000 at a mile and an 8th mid court back after really laying an egg in the awesome again. I mean, essentially was just eased out of the race. And at one prior to that in a non conditional asset, which seemed at the time to me a little bit of a let's get him some confidence back, type race, because you know, he had gotten beat pretty good in the San Antonio. He's run really good at delmar in the past. In fact, he was second in this race last year, but he was two to 5 that day. On his best days, he's pretty tough. It's best days seem to come when he's honored right near the lead, though. So I don't know if with a little bit of an inside drop, that's what they'll try, but he's got 8 rings and axe man to his outside a baffert to headed monster. Baffour also has Azul coast in there. And as a coast was kind of in the, you know, the blocker roll last time out. As you know, sometimes the third baffert will be. So I don't know what that means for how this race is going to shape up for a pace scenario. They're all drawn right next to each other, the three baffert. And you know, I don't, I do think that sometimes trainer intention handicapping it is part of the equation, but it's not the most fun part because these axeman and 8 rings they kind of have a little bit of a similar style. Sometimes they go to the lead and when they do, they tend to be better. And sometimes they try to stock and they don't tend to be as good when they do that. So, you know, it's going to be interesting. Bell harbors in there too, who I've always had a bit of a soft spot for. He was in the first grade at race I ever called. He ran a huge 30. It's funny, the comment doesn't even mention how it says weighted at the quarter rail rally. Oh, that was the no, no, no, that was the wrong. He ran in Salvatore two years in a row. Never mind. The comment was right. Apologies to Richie rich. The chart. But the year I call them, he walked out of the gate and still made a big, big run out of it. But man, he just hasn't won in a long time. He runs a lot of thirds, 9 thirds from 28 starts. But I think kind of a fun little addition of the native diver. You have the baffert question marks with the three horses. You have the midcourt question mark, and then you have some kind of numbers that are trying to cement their status in the stakes ranks. 8 rings is actually the favorite and probably deserving so. I mean, I feel like he's, you know, he was very good the day I saw him at Santa Anita two starts back, but it was a four horse field and he was complete lone speed. But on his best day, he's like, you know, he's pretty capable talented runner. He ran a monster one behind doctor Shiva in the Bing Crosby stakes. So I got to think he is the one, but we'll see. Anyways, just a quick look at some of the stuff coming up this weekend around the world of horse racing, big appreciation to our guests this week inside the pylons and Sabrina more. Appreciate you guys for tuning in and we will be back with you on Monday. As I said, pat cumming is going to join us next week from the third brand idea foundation. Who else is on the show?

With keen linden and churchill and that gets us mar to the churchill meet kicked off yesterday with kind of a Twilight card kind of a kind of grueling scenario between a a thursday e- e- evening scenario into Into a saturday night card so everybody a little tested here.

With the with the winter for samantha jam demand for seventy five. One horse acclaimed out of there. And it wasn't him which kinda surprised me but Thing was cox first time starter.

"Seven furlongs on the main track. Friendly fire figures to be favored in here now. He's a horse where an abundance of moisture might affect him. I would imagine the main track is a little bit Is is trending good fast. He won the true north on a good track. If it is entire know. And i'll talk to kelly green about this tomorrow. If it's off i would imagine he scratches after that forego last year's less poor effort really The the two racist since the only to poor effort. He's put forth since being moved from. Jason service. have been in the slop. The corner and the foregone. You could also argue. That they were the corner in the forego. He faces a field of seven. You don't wanna call great to winning. You're in horses overmatched. But if friendly fire brings his a game say this about a lot of horses run against him. They're all running for second. That may be but there is a horse in here. Who i think has a right to be better tomorrow than what we've seen recently or should i say sunday and that's number two mind control. Who is making a gigantic barn. Change going from greg sacco. Todd pletcher just like going from almost anybody to todd. Pletcher is a big barn. James there are a few that maybe it's on. You know it would be kind of a an even thing but just saying nothing about the personal. You know personally about the two guys you know. One of them wins a lot more races than a much higher percentage than the other. And i'm wondering if mine control in the new barn is better than what he was in the old barn. Todd's had them for two months now. Looks like he's working well at belmont for his return to the races and he actually has races in his past performances. That could give forensic fire trouble. He doesn't run those racist very often nowadays. But maybe this will wake him up. And because i think forensic fire will be three to five. I'm going to try mind control as the one chance to beat them. And i'm gonna box the one two in the exact okay. I i worry that mind. Control has has had enough. That's my biggest concern with him. That it's just it's time no no of a trainer channel of endings. Help at this point. And i'll tell you this. I'm not that encouraged by racers off the lasix which could be his biggest issue going forward To wrap our friendly fire tomorrow. I think wicked trick is a little interesting around the exact. He gets a wet track. He likes seven. We could share a little one five from me on sunday. I think maybe even a little top seed see was second behind hobbies every random tabbies. He might be better. I know as wins have come. Going a mile is is is is allowance. Win came at a mile I he might be better cutting back to so i'll probably play a little one. Four one five one four in race ten on sunday the grey to john eight narrow down at ellis park will end the races with a mile and a sixteenth feels poked her for the phillies and mair phil of eight action. Figures to be inside. I would imagine domingo brad cox shown dram pass the plate. Paul mcgee and joe talamo. I put them in gone top look like they gave her a little bit of a break last time out of confidence builder after she hadn't been doing much stake. Races put her back in a higher level allowance. She sent off the nine to five favorite and she won impressively beating joy at before by over two lengths so pretty good feel that she beat despite it not being labeled a stake race and her good races. I think are good enough. I like the inside post and not a lot of speed in this race. I think she could have a pace advantage over some of her main rivals. I liked them. Inga this covered up inside. Maybe you know just off the pace or on it. I like the finger on a fan of hers you know to starts back behind warlike goddess. She actually ran. Well i just don't think she wants to go a mile and a half. She almost got the money in the benson. Now the fairgrounds off the layoff. I think she's kind of philly wearing now with a little couple of reasons under about things you might be. Okay that's all they mingo A lot actually race eight goes as the ellis park turf.

That was a bit of a trailer for a film called Foster Boy, starring Shane Paul McGee and Louis Gossett Jr. Executive produced by Shaquille O'Neal. It was inspired by the true story of a young black man seeking justice for the abuse he suffered in the foster care system and just one of many perspectives on the black experience you can see right now at the Toronto Black Film Festival, which recently returned for its ninth edition. Pretty much every big film event this year, The festival has had to move all of its programming online as a result of the pandemic, But this year's Toronto Black Film Festival is the biggest one yet with over 150 films from 25 countries. And that growth is largely thanks to the drive and determination of my next guest. Fabian Column is an actor from Haiti who immigrated to Montreal in 2003 with hopes of furthering her film career but was shocked to discover that very few people on Quebec watch TV and in film Look like her. So since then, she's made it her life's work to provide a platform for black creators who lack the means and connections to break into the entertainment industry. After starting the Montreal Black Film Festival in 2005, she expanded to Toronto in 2013 she now overseas and nine black film festivals around the World and Fabian Koala Foundation provides financial support and mentorship. The young filmmakers all that to say I am so excited to be joined. Live right now by Fabian Cola. Hi. Welcome to the show. Thank you to get so much done for having me It's nice to have you. What's it like? I mean, film festivals are typically red carpets. Ah, party, maybe a glass of wine every now and then. What's it like having the festival happened from home? Wow is the cause. He asked addition ever because I invite everybody to just be in their favorite PJs s o. They can really enjoy these great films and discussions. Um, you know, in the comfort of their home, but, you know, you know, there's a Something great about that thing. It's because everybody now from coast to coast to coast can really diving, too. You know this great programming and support black history month and celebrate and watch all these films, you know, without having to buy a plane ticket to come to drone unnecessarily right now, So it's a great thing to Gotta tell you being able to stay in my pajamas, not going to play in any popcorn. Watch films. All these things sound great to me. It's pretty amazing what she managed to pull off here in spite of the pandemic, But I'd like to talk a little bit about before the pandemic and how you got to this point. You were a really successful actor and model in Haiti of actually won the Miss Haiti pageant in 2000. You went on to win awards for your film work there, But in 2003 you decide to make Montreal your home and you pursued work as an actor there. What was that experience like? Well, first of all, when I when I When I landed in Montreal, Tom, it was beautiful. It's still beautiful on Charlie's one of the best places on Earth right away. It's just the vibe that first getting on the streets and people with all accents and ethnic backgrounds. And I thought it was gonna be like that on the screen as well because Cinema and television should me where society's demographic reality everywhere you go. So Unfortunately, when I turned on TV, I was shocked because everybody was white, and everybody was talking with the same accent in. I kind of thought. Okay, either everybody's gonna find me as a sensation, and I'm gonna be working every day because I'm the only black person. In the in the industry in the market on the market, or nobody would be interested because there's just no place for me, you know, on TV, and unfortunately that was the latter and that was very hard. It's very hard. It was very tough reality to face because I was really considered as a young black woman immigrant with an accent. Um And yeah, they said, Yeah. You have to change your accent. I did You have to, um, you know, have an agent. I found one. You have to be a member of that trying new D A. You know, these actors in French? I did each time the bar was being raised higher and higher and higher. Um, and nothing happened so By the time I had completed everything they told me well, now you have to be patient. It's not gonna be overnight. It's gonna be maybe in five years. Five years later, it's gonna be in 10 years, you know, and Thank God I'd never stopped and just waiting for the phone to rank to ring. So I really decided that you know what if my frustration that Montreal deserved a new platforms for people that look like me that can definitely not find themselves out there reflected So you start the Montreal Haitian Film Festival, which became the Montreal Black Film Festival. And since 2013 you've hosted a Toronto addition to and as we're saying earlier that the film festivals are more than just red carpets, or even just opportunities to take in movies. What do you think your festival gives? Filmmakers gives audiences that maybe other film festivals. Don't Oh, my goodness. These festivals are the very I would say. I call them the necessary festivals in our landscape, especially today because black film makers of their black creators, they are the most marginalized group in the arts industry. Artistic industry, so they don't they don't really have their voices reflected their films being shown all over the place, so they need strong platforms like this festival. To really, you know, meet their audiences, you know, showcase their work, and also it's the you know, period admission. It's also the fact that you can win awards. It's also the fact that these festivals are Recognized by the academy, the Canadian Academy. That means once you've been selected there or or you've run award at this festival's you are eligible to. You know for that, for example, the Canadian screen awards, So, um it's just one example. But it's also a way to network away. You know, to meet other people in the industry. It's also you know, a way to learn because we have, you know, workshops. We have a panel discussions conferences. We have stars. You know, I'm coming to these festivals we've we've hosted. We welcome Spike Lee three times and then Danny Glover, and then you know Harry Belafonte and you know Solomon, si se and, um, from Mali, and so many people from all over.

"Website to Steve Dot Com and yesterday some interesting racing at three ovals and then unbelievable set of of of pills were pulled at Oaklawn for Saturday. And if you haven't looked ahead yet you're in for a treat because the apple blossom the grade one and of course. The the traditional racing festival of the south is a little bit elongated given the circumstances with Arkansas Derby and fantasy and everything you know everything spread out here which is fine which is fine. All it does is enhanced these weekends and really gives everybody a an opportunity to to focus on some stake races. There are some steaks coming up at Gulfstream. They're adding a couple of three year. Old Seventy five thousand dollar types But I mean these are. These are the the prime spring season and hot springs and the Apple Blossom not disappoint fourteen. A field of fourteen. Yeah for the six hundred thousand dollar grade. One and candidates are spread throughout and I will obviously tomorrow for the most part dig in But it's hard to envision that Saron getting empress we'll have as you know as I wanNA say easy time but won't have as much or or less resistance. Then she saw you know in the Zaeri and cookie dough right inside of her. That's not gonNA that's not GonNa to help and then to the outside go google yourself. For Paul McGee and Samantha Single One. And how important would would this opportunity be a grade? One for Samantha home-bred than into mischief mayor that has already banked six hundred thousand seven for nineteen in her career. Michael McCarthy sends Bo Hershey's home-bred. Cc The boulder mile winner already. Obviously a great one winner and in prime form. She's drawn all the way outside so victorious spinoza going to have a tough decision. So there's some speeds drawn outside bought. This brings back. Harare largest off the one turn mile at Laurel and she generally you know even when John Massa Hatter generally would be in the race flow but I mean everywhere you look. There's horses that at least WanNa be sort of involved and you got a couple of deep closers like point of honor and cold water then. There's the horses that are going to try to sit an interesting trip behind the speed and from that standpoint it. We'll see what sophie doyle does with street band. Who of course came up yesterday? A Lotta people enjoyed the Mitch Pool visit yesterday. The the baseball special and I really enjoyed having them. But maybe maybe Espinosa can drop in before the turn. This is a mile and a sixteenth. So not a lot of time to you. Know to find a slot But see see a candidate to maybe you know maybe sit sixth if she can find a place very very good even mentioned. Ali's candy for the grits and Emma Dallas Stuart News. I was there when Mr Fifty one actually fact Mr Nikki was standing right behind me. That day Queen Nekia in here to Coming out of the Royal Delta where she and cookie dough and Golden Award were all within a length of each other. This is this is dynamite. And there's also a Sarah Cosa who's making second start. The veteran mayor Bernardini the mayor. That was with Brendon. Walsh and now with the Cipriano contract was third in the ZAERI. It's just unbelievable head turning. Yeah you'RE GONNA have to look at this. I don't know how many times to figure out how how much you know. How many how many of the pace players you WANNA keep involved dominy in the mid pack in the closer will see. Of course one thing. I haven't done this. Check the weather yet. It's been very difficult to get a decent day at Oakland in the in recent weeks Saturday. The other big graded stay. Of course the count fleet and this drew eleven and plenty Apace in here. If you're looking for a closer fleeing looking for I don't know nitrous or Tonkery Castle Outta come marauding late. Some interesting players Besides those that you expected like Whitmore of course That was targeting this hidden. Scroll coming out of that. Six Furlong Romp in the return and you know feels feels live in here and and tactical it. Doesn't you know he was on the lead but the think he has to have it? I? I don't know if that's the way he wants to approach this Val Valerie Lund. Brings you know the the hard hitting Mr Yeager Meister. Al Stall. Who was with us on Monday? I'll talked about Bobby's wicked one. Who's got a pair of wire-to-wire open length? Wins Miguel Mania comes to town with? Bobby's wicked one in this spot. Lexa Tony Ian. Hui came to have plenty of affection for after that stunning upset in the Chick Lang at Pimlico for Jack sister sent flagstaff coming off the Carlos win with. He's got Rosario draws the to and and could save ground. I mean this is. This is really going to be fun. Shared the upside for Hillsdale. Their home bred Mcclain's music whose continued to rack up. Placements did not didn't really fire in the in the hot springs chasing the the pace but he certainly attended hot paces before and finished. So maybe he snaps back for John Secure and the team and so on. I mean really fun Wendell. Fong for our man Al Gold and my Engelhardt an Jeremiah's had a bunch of solid seconds. He's won four races at the meat. Thirty four starts seven seconds though and it feels like You know he's a he's a pendulum. Swing away from another another two or three wins so in addition to the count fleet and the Apple Blossom. There's a couple of allowances the seventh and the ninth as part of the Big Five and or pick four and a close out with a very nice quality straight fifty claimer with a lot of good horses a lot of good grade three and money allowance. Sin Starter allowance type runners including Spike Shirley who think curl up feels like remember when he came to when he came to North America feels like he actually seven so I I guess I guess he has been around for you know for a long time. Anyway we're going to have a lot of fun. I think Going into Saturday when we dig into these cards and we'll have more than one oakland guest. I'm sure nickel also look at At the sequence but Probably Nancy Holt is gonNA join us and we'll we'll card. I'm sure I'm sure Ed. And James will dive in so you'll get plenty of looks couple of other things obviously to talk about including two passing before we talk about the results from yesterday Including the the according to twitter the four hundred zero one shot that they wanna Tampa before we get to that very sad colic episode took senior. Swinger Who has won three straight Maryland Timber Championships For Joe Davies and IRV Crawford and arguably I- is this outrageous to say the best son of domestic dispute might be he might be the most accomplished But we talked to Joe Davies last year after. I think this was the conversation where we talked about the retiring of of the trophy for the Maryland Hunt Cup. And if you didn't see I tweeted yesterday. Joe Clancy's piece. This was really. This is really bad. This was a courageous horse. That overcame a few number issues and became a star. So very very sad and I sent out a note to Joe Davies. The colic I mean you know it's such a it's such a random you know it in sometimes You know no matter what you try can get them so very very tough senior. Senator said swingers senior. Senator have gone will not get. It wasn't going to get a chance anyway. The is his chance to win. A fourth hunt. Cup was derailed in a by circumstances anyway so it was going to have to wait until next year but Parts go out to everybody. You know he was. He was the horse that was featured in in that was CBS. And got a lot of notoriety for frankly for timber racing and for you know just for the the whole chase scene in general very sad the other passing and we will have at least one visitor and maybe more a name that you literally have seen forever it seems and PP's milt Wolfson. At the age of eighty seven died in Fort Lauderdale yesterday and in Mill Wolfson had always a limited number of courses that he looked after and he just one at a consistent basis for decades and We've got. We've got calls out to several calder. Barn have the TWOS That that were very close to mill. Wolfson yeah the mill. Wolfson had tons of friends and he was just stay quiet. The gentleman leave considerate horsemen. I mean just the hard pressed to find anybody. That's got a bad word to say about Bill Wilson. And you know the the big courses that he had it too long associations as a as a trainer with both says and of course the judge says who who was a multiple graded stakes winner and stride right and you know the stride rite the stride rite team had extended success and a bread and and they they also bought. And I yesterday I I I I was going to call them. The frolic sisters and there were there. Were the two sisters Is it Lindsay frolic? And whether it was Lindsay's FROLIC summer FROLIC FROLICS. Revenge There were like a half a dozen of them and they were all not all but a lot of them. Were were stake. Winners and fabulous frolic Lindsey frolic and so forth stormy frolic. I think if I'm not mistaken fabulous I think fabulous stormy we're sisters and then they produced runners and more frolics out of the other folic. He also burned the maestro very tough Stanley gold. Bill Kaplan and others have been have been requested at because milk was not. Wilson wasn't somebody. I think a lot of people knew well but he was just a institution in south Florida originally from Philadelphia and If you saw the the Open Air Force Veteran University of Illinois Bachelor of Science Degree and later a master's from temple and he had the he had the the tack business the Shamanic Turf Supply in the Florida and in the mid Atlantic lovely guy at a at survived by his wife.

The Israel Guide Dog Center for the blind. Very nice very nice. If you WANNA remember milk Wolfson we'll hear will hear from a Bill Kaplan stay gold. Mike Lay cow. I mean there's so many people that had long associations with looking quickly at yesterday. You know seth south was seemed like he was on his way to pick four and in that seventh race. How about how about the eight to one shot? Unbelievable I'll make you famous congrats skelding for miles signing and Hainan racing with Alma Mater. It's unbelievable otherwise.

racing at Belmont kayode but the good news is the weekend should be very nice and once this storm but if you haven't if you haven't utilized your your radar equipment on your phone Oh my God like a gigantic like a blob just this enormous thing and you know it it was tracking this way and then a lot of times you say well they never right right well they got this right and of course last night the preemptive canceling of the of the Yankee Astro game so mattress mack mattress Mac the going to be stretched out another day or two I don't know Astros yeah yeah I haven't even had a chance to talk about that with the with Jim McConville but his promotion that set him up to get clobbered on mattress sales I'm betting sales and he's covered himself with straight bats on the Astros to win the world series and so the either way he with the astros win customers win and Mac is covered himself but racing for the weekend looks okay and that includes the New York bred showcase day they drew that a yesterday down in Maryland as well the Maryland million that card game upgrade to a big yet we talked about Remington Morrow and Louisiana's got another Louisiana feature so it's a big weekend for the state bread programs around the country and of course at far hills and the guy coarsely Burien and Bill Gallo yesterday laid out this this weather this rain good soaking rain and turf should be absolutely perfect going to be in the these on Saturday and it looks completely sunny and gorgeous so at meanwhile Qinglin Sycamore today yesterday yesterday and this has really been the case affect the didn't Jeremy Plonk talk about this quite a bit in when he visited Tuesday the opportunities to nail down the multis have been really tricky and yesterday it was of course the feature where the the Chad Brown for shadwell that Emirati you know very much was the horse to beat at all but could not get past louder than bombs the three year old for at Fox certainly kept good company and this really was a it's gotta be a career-best I can't imagine it's not but he had been off since May came back in August in an off the surfer and then at Churchill ran evenly at came forward significantly would not let Emirati get by and whether you say Emirati hung or you know louder than bombs dug in either way it it made it really tough depending on how you approached that sequence and you know it had it had a couple of good at a couple of good hits intern around that sequence and that included cofactor the Kelly Breen for Stone Way Kelly I saw Kelly actually a couple of horses earlier on the card for himself the sequence also included a very nice two year old winter for Paul McGee and in December tannehill the familiar pink silks with the floor delay pass the plate you know certainly was one of the the two or three horses that that look prominent I actually tried to get the first time starter are involved that really had every reason to on paper pedigree wise to run well but really didn't just kind of locked along the back of the pack that was partygoer will look for we'll look for partygoer down the road I guess that Philly but then the nightcap actually to I'm a barn cat that I got knocked got knocked out of the pick for Kind of keyed in and here again I I was trying to get some prices and I'm a barn cat seventy one so some good multi-race neutrals because of the forty dollar winter for David Fox ah violence gelding louder than bombs and you're right you remember him from the winter at Gulfstream danced a lot of the the big dances and and was respectable but this was a step forward when was he gelded he was gelded in August so look down the Road Fun Day yesterday Keelan and then again today you got another nice set erases the sycamore the grade three oh you these next next couple of days to into the Raven run and the Valley View Nice cards live each of these days at King Linda also got a nice allowance you got a two year old and other two year old breath race where Brian Lynch has got complex fire who had made some noise as a potential juvenile all turf participant or juvenile filly participant and not you know cult excuse me but there was mutterings that after he broke his maiden at Churchill since September that you know there was something maybe there but he's GonNa stay short for now this is an overanalyze out of a afraid mayor for four springs racing I five two and I thought very much the the it's the beat in that two year old allowance and the you got a second level allowance on the turf as well big full field of Nice horses is going as the start of the pick for so another day another nice they at keeneland and up some opinions in as the as the morning goes and then I mention your New York you've got Saturday's Card set and it looks like we're good love get our own voltaren started on Saturday in the in the third as part of that steak sequence the maid of the mist and the Milwaukee the empire classic the Hudson the Empire Classic the Empire Staff Ticonderoga and the sleepy hollow this is always a fun day all the all these state bread days yes there's some heavy favorites like we talked about with Mary Ramp Alenia yesterday that'll be true in Maryland two in the Maryland million but you also you also get your share of of cookie prices that kind jumped up in these spots and in some cases it's horses getting back against their own kind maybe they were facing open company etc so we'll tomorrow particularly I'm weekend preview will dig in to the weekend action today we've got visit coming from Nicole Russo who promised yesterday Nicole is doing the juvenile turf sprint so we'll talk to Nicole get her report Mike Welch is in the air he's on his way to Louisville and he'll be clocking Churchill this weekend any number of readers courses that are making most cases probably a pretty important near final serious preparations I mean they'll be horses that have easy easy works in the in the two weeks leading up when you're when you're two and a half three weeks out the serious works get put in Mckinsey what a six furlong with the extended Gal about etc midnight BC you as well out at Santa Anita all of those are in xp we'll talk to Jeff Siegel tomorrow on that front but Michael Join US tomorrow we'll get the sprint report from him and the sprint this sprint has as we've been repeating the sprint is looking like it's going to be top heavy with talent and after a few lean years this is a sprint that you know lives up to what had really from the origins of the Breeders Cup as an event was always was always one of the most important and most -ticipant it and then it it you know it's been kind of wandering in the Wilderness we'll talk to Nicole also about the few sales pieces next week you've got the October sale phasing we'll get some other quick hits in on the sales front with Nicole Russo Dick Powell's GonNa join us after the first break we've got plenty to do we'll wrap up the two thousand nineteen press kyle season and the Mcdermott we'll save that result my trump better and today the state disclose it out at the press will also get a Hong Kong report in with Dick as well talked to Steve asking last night and the in agony frankly I don't I don't feel I doubt he'll put in a full visit later this morning but I do want to get him to talk a little bit about what a special week it was after we left them last Wednesday he got it out and he's paying the price for it now with his leg I it's just WE WE KID Steve but he's really not a complainer in in the you'll sense but this it's obviously the obviously didn't do the leg favors with that with that week in Kentucky trumping around the farms and and doing the tours and and so forth so we'll catch up with Steve we'll have Tony Course talked to him a little bit and rich and we'll see if there's a chance that set the feeling better and we'll get him back in after that scratch yesterday a couple of couple of news items including that situation that feels it feels like another bit of of ambush to be honest The the story that emerged from West Virginia about the mayor left at eight landfill and actually when td Thornton rose got a piece in td Dan and saw the name I remember her as a New York bread that at the beginning Korea had a long career and there is a very incomplete picture about what inspired here and yeah the image is horrific the impression is just awful I wait for full a full picture to be aw come complete on this fingers being pointed at the racetrack for those who don't know what you know what happens to a horse when when they've been euthanized certain states obviously you you everybody goes for an roxy if that's not part of a mandate in a in a jurisdiction horses go to a rendering facility a render the abattoir that's pretty standard so it's a little strange inch there's the steps to be retraced because certainly this you know this is not the first horse that has been put down and AH typically taken to the renter so how how did this transpire the question let's let those let those dots get connected and then we'll be appropriate response from all parties involved I you'd like to think Jerry Halldor for turned away from the court in Los Angeles County Superior Court but the judge pointed he Andrew Cuomo in direction of how to proceed against Santa Anita let's take a break dickel start us off at the racers back after this apparatuses with speed on Sirius Xm Radio hey what's going on Mike here and I'm going to tell you about an offer from my good

"Lot of people have perceptions about what funding the workplaces some of you may have been traumatized by creepy team building stuff. It's not that it's really really not so. I think you'll be surprised and pleased that there's there's alternatives to that and establish fun as a process. Ask Not an event and that was one of my moments years ago when I was doing this in the workplace. We'll we'll talk a little bit about that. that God wouldn't it be better if you took those euphoric but fleeting feelings that you get from an event once or twice a year and break those up consistently throughout the course of the year wouldn't that yield better revette better results and in fact it did and that's that's how we really got started with this model and then finally teach you how to easy effective affordable programming again. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised tries so let's get into it so the agenda terms you will not recognize that's because we made them up. The first is easy. We're going to talk a little bit about the evolution of fun the work place the why and the Roi So so why is fun your competitive advantage thankfully. There's a lot of people out there today. A lot of brilliant mind Sean Acre Simon Sinek Tony Shay others who have done a lot of the the research and have the experience about the Y. Fund and we're going to talk about that it. It's usually frames frames up a conversation about the health too but know that our expertise really GonNa talk about today is how to successfully implement fund or place place so after we do the the the evolution of wine or why the laws of fun in these are the things that we learned over the course of a more than a decade of delivering of funding workplace in every conceivable vertical market that you could imagine any is companies doesn't matter these laws or universal truth. I WANNA call them our our standard within any application and then the shared experience agreeance and this is where the model really gets different. We talk about what's fun for you. Your culture your environment not inflicted fun on on you as some people may have experienced in the past and then how to develop your creative inventory. This is literally how to put it together and create brief but organic in fun activities in the workplace that really will get you moving on your way to establishing a culture of funded happiness at work and then finally finely design activate and sustain so you know it's all words and talk unless you actually make the commitment to do it and put it on the calendar even make it happen so that's the agenda. Let's let's get started so the first peers the Lucien end of the why are are alive fun at work. I'm going to spend a little bit of time just credentialing if you will so what makes us the experts and you know why is this information meaningful and what I want you to take away in this piece of it is that this is all based on practice and experience right so it's not a theoretical this is based on practice and experience it all started many many years ago at a company. United Electric Supply or there for many years and they had a work hard play hard ethic act before culture was even a term that was used in business but work hard play hard ethic ethic and I just naturally gravitated towards the play hard. I already knew how to work hard so but my my hunters suspicion was that that was was this companies competitive advantage that play and fun. I'm led to all these wonderful results. This company had on high productivity high retention high profitability on paper. They shouldn't have even been in business because there's a lot bigger competitors that could take them out from a pricing standpoint but wonderful customer service great place still is today but we formed the circuit club and many of you may be on on committees at at work trying to fund plan fun activities in the workplace or engagement committees culture committees so we had the circuit club we met every two weeks ten people and we learned a lot through that process but I started to see that it wasn't just appropriate to have fun after work work while we did those events in Annual Holiday Party and summer picnic as many of you made may still do what I noticed over the period of years as they became Louis and less popular as people's demands for the personal time just became more and more evidence. There was less attendance at at those events so I thought Jeez. Let's plan things brief but consistently throughout the course of the year and we did in that model really seemed to work so my fascination continued. You'd I started to research fun workplace and this guy came up so if anybody can guess who that is and you can type it in Dan. I'll give you send you two dollar bill or a book or something. I don't know but that is Dr Paul McGee and he's one of the foremost authorities is on fun and humor laughter and very well published and just really awesome guide. He happened to live in my home town or when house research in it. I thought what the heck this guy's from my neighborhood so we met and you know he he really thought that this theory theory I had about starting a company called the fun department to to change the model of of traditional team building you know was was a good one but he he said be prepared for a long haul. there's a lot of nonbelievers out there and then before. I got started. I thought wow jeeze. Maybe I should get some professional help. Somebody who really cleaners deliver fun so I got this guy so Dave Raymond is the guy who who created the best mascot of all all time he lived as the philly fanatic for many many years and it was a friend of mine and I thought Jeeze if anybody knows how to have fun at stave so God together with Dave and and we created this this company fun department back in five did this team building events for many many years until today and we still do lots of team building events and then wrote a book documented or process. We wanted to teach people this model in process that you're GONNA learn today so we started a training consulting part of the business and then we got out into the product business in two thousand seventeen actually shipping subscription a services as of boxes of fun and then finally in very proud to be partners with delivering happiness twenty eighteen we started a partnership with the age age and if anybody knows that company born out of Tony Shays experience with ZAPPA's starting a company based on culture the happiness and fun and taking a very tradition no boring business online shoes and making it mega successful so one of many examples of companies today that are disruptors in the marketplace that are starting with culture starting with happiness happiness and fun and and building a company from there so much like the experience at United Electric where nothing fancy or glamorous about electric electrical supplies allies but they had this amazing culture that was based on funded happiness at work so that's enough credentialing sorry if it seemed like a commercial just wanted to give you a little history and background and and why you know why it's important to recognize that this again is based on practice and experience so the more data and we're going to again talk about the how to but I I want to cover the why because most conversations about funded happiness happiness at work. Somebody's gotTa be convinced. It's leader you know. CEO CFO somebody's gotta say Jeez. Why do we WANNA do this. What makes it important so this. Is You just one statistic and it's one of my favorites because it says eighty one percent of employees not this is not from leaders. It's not for management. eighty-one birth sign of employees in companies denoted as great in fortunes one hundred best companies to work for say they work in a fun workplace. Environment Arment so that's significant because from an employee standpoint fun has the highest correlation of any other thing that makes up a the culture and what people think denotes a great company so it's important to know that from your employees perspective that fun ranks very vary hi it's sixty to seventy percent correlation to a great company so important to notice if you're GONNA start with culture why not start with you know with fun

"Picking Rosen high screens all day day. You gotta hit three pseudo. Gotta find some people that could hit shots from probably a piece that's e not unless they easy to find, but it's one of the easier definitely gotta find them, though. You gotta by somebody shoot more than forty percent. But they didn't even try to find him last year. That was the thing they wanted to different. They didn't try to that wasn't what they thought the team needed to be built this and it's not easier now because of what the Golden State were have influenced to. They were influenced NBA guys are working harder on three point shooting. So the not as rare as they used to be say ten seasons ago where it's like if you had on your hand for the guy shooting over thirty five percent. Those were considered great shooters. A lot of guys now working at three point shot. Let's go to sprint people's hotline the show. The people in LaPointe and the morning show. What's going on? Going on. So I wanna talk earlier ball. The whose thing you guys have rain below bonding room, which I think, is totally unfair. Those guys had the opportunity, Robin, as you put it all year last year and made in step it up until until the Brian Wayne down and Couve much. He was ready to go from the start you use in that role. He was trying to do that, from the beginning, and he has a real mom of that's what we need right here at the Lakers, move for the three points union. I dunno out. It'll be Paul McGee on Instagram. Don't laugh at me, but he's working on three points. Doing three point guy energy. He has great hires, and he's working on three point he'd be like Kenan road the other day. He was posted on Instagram. Keep your eyes on the road all keep guys on the roadway driving in the car. I'm busy work right now. Listen. I'm with you in terms of looking at guys who are we're going to have three point shots. I say culture has changed remark assault got into the league. He shot outside of the paint. Now studies at three point shooter when when DeMarcus cousins came into the Lee, he was boogie down low. Now, you gotta garden three dues do shot. I'm not sure if I want Jovana McGee to be the do that we bring in. But I hear what you're saying. In terms of there are guys continue to work on that shot that you can. I mean brook, Lopez book, low pants down low score who worked on his gaze whereas some guys with some touch even around the basket. They had a little touch javale McGee is not a touch guy. Jail McGee an athlete. He's a leaper. He's an energy guy. He's not a guy that has a great deal of finishing ability around the room, even from short range to have step back to twenty five feet. But he's a decent free. Throw shooter, so that's your precursor right there. A guy who's going to descend free throw shooter. Yeah, you can look and go, you're never be able to shoot a three but a guy who's a decent free throws. Shooter tells you one there's a degree of touch and two. There's enough form there to hit a jump shot when he's left wide open. I don't need to spend a whole lot of money in a whole lot of time on the do try to teach you how shoot threes. If you can't come into the league already doing it to some degree, that never mind..
