35 Burst results for "Rafael"
Based on Data, The Tyre Nichols Case Is Truly Rare.
"So the article in the great city journal by Rafael mangual, who has done three PragerU videos as it happens, speaking about what happened. He gives a perspective on the Memphis police force. So listen to this. According to data compiled by police scorecard, a website built by left wing police critic, Samuel Welsh, Memphis police have been involved in 25 killings, mostly justified, between 2013 and 2021. 8 years, 25 killings, three a year. Okay, doesn't sound to me like that's over the top. A period in which Memphis police officers made some are you ready? 288,706 arrests. To say nothing of other encounters such as traffic and pedestrian stops, that doesn't count that. A 2018 study of both deadly and non deadly force found that over a two year period, in which officers across three police departments feel that over a million calls for service, police made 114,000 arrests. And used force of any kind in less than 1% of these. But for the despicable people on the left, who, among other ideas, to increase human suffering, said defund police, the hatred of police is so deep that they're using this truly awful murder in Memphis as another way to attack police.
Djokovic beats Tsitsipas for 10th Australian Open, 22nd Slam
"And emotional Novak Djokovic has beaten stephanos to extend his Australian open record to ten victories from ten finals, the Serb who battled injuries earlier in the event closed out a 6 three 7 6 7 6 win that took a fraction under three hours to complete Djokovic climbed into his team box after the victory and broke down in tears before returning to the court to accept the winner's trophy. He's a huge relief because, you know, it hasn't been hasn't been smooth sailing. In addition to the title, the victory returns him to the top of the world rankings, and more significantly, secures his 22nd Grand Slam singles crown, Johnny Spanish rival, Rafael Nadal.

Analysis: Stakes rise as Iran can fuel 'several' atom bombs
"Diplomatic efforts aimed at limiting Iran's atomic program appear more unlikely than ever before. Rafael Mariano grassi, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, told reporters Iran has enough enriched uranium to build several nuclear weapons if it chooses, but he says they're not there yet. That doesn't mean they have a nuclear weapon, right? That doesn't mean they have a nuclear weapon. So they haven't created yet. While Iran arms Russia and its war in Ukraine and as unrest shakes the Islamic Republic, tensions with the west are high. However, grossi believes Iran still has a long road ahead before Iranian nuclear weapons would become a reality. And I'm not saying we should be complacent or believe that nothing is happening. Trajectory is certainly not a good one. Whilst Iran hasn't responded to grossi's comments, the head of the country's civilian nuclear program stated it would welcome a visit by gros to the country.

IAEA mission starts work at Ukraine nuclear plant
"The International Atomic Energy Agency has established a firm presence of nuclear safety and security experts at a south Ukraine nuclear plant. IAEA director general Rafael grossi, while visiting the PF dollar Ukraine's power plant, says the mission aims to cover all of Ukraine's sensitive sites. This is a part of a set of missions. We are starting today here at south Ukraine. We are going to be continuing. Next week and also journal. Grossi adds a group of experts will stay behind in each location to work with Ukrainian hosts. We are leaving now a group of experts who are going to be staying here permanently. Zappos nuclear plant, Europe's largest, was taken over by Russian forces in the first months of the war and remains under their control. I'm Charles De Ledesma
Will Democrat Senators Vote to Impeach Joe Biden?
"So the question now is, and by the way, you've got Rafael Warnock in the Senate. You've got Ilhan Omar and AOC and several other Democrats now are starting to raise concerns. So is this all just happening spontaneously? I don't think so. I don't believe so. I believe that the powers that be one Barack Hussein Obama and Susan Rice knew all along that Biden had these documents. You think they just you think the attorneys just suddenly one day they're wandering through the Biden pin center and they say, oh wow, what's this? Maybe they were looking for a menu to order Chinese takeout? And instead, they open up the drawers and there you go, there are classified documents. You think that really happened? Come on, ladies and gentlemen. I suspect it's very possible that this was the plan to remove Biden from office if the Democrats had lost the midterm elections by a tsunami. That plan had already been hatched that plan was already in the process of being put into place and shockingly when the Democrats did not lose by a massive tsunami. Well, guess what? The plan was still there. So at this point, we're looking at a couple of things. The investigations are going to happen. No doubt about it. There's a pretty good chance Biden's going to get impeached. Now the question is, will there be enough Republicans in the Senate should that happen? And again, we're a little bit, I don't want to get too far out ahead of our skis here. But if that's the case, you could have some Democrats switch sides. And vote with the Republicans to give Biden the heave hope.
Nadal struggles at times during 4-set win at Australian Open
"Vince defending champion Rafael Nadal was lucky to survive the first day of the Australian open, the top seed struggling against the big serving Jack Draper before winning 6 one in the fourth set of a three hour and 41 minute battle, the Spaniard help when the English man started cramping late in the match. Francis tiafoe Sebastian caught it, Jessica poo goulder and last year's finalist Daniel Collins led the American charge on day one with all but the gola needing extra sense before advancing.

Rumsfeld's Rules: What We Can Learn From Borrowed Wisdom
"Things that I have learned and the discussion we're going to have today is a thing called rumsfeld rules. Donald rumsfeld, if you're watching on rumble or YouTube or you'll see me holding the book, your rumsfeld rules. Non Rafael, amazing career from a congressman to enable aviator to Secretary of Defense. I mean, if you just go back to his career, chief of staff of The White House, just all kinds of amazing accomplishments. Some liking some hating. I mean, he is one of those that there's not a lot of middle ground for. But he over years, he put together what he called rumsfeld's rules. And these were and I love how he starts the book and he takes this and if you've ever heard him speak and he's passed away now, but he would say that borrowed wisdom is a wonderful thing. And I think that is great. This podcast I hope could be considered borrowed wisdom. And because what I try to do is find out things that I've learned, I'll pass them on to you, hopefully you will digest them, apply them in your way and you pass them on to somebody else. That's how borrowed wisdom. It does mean that you have to come up with everything. It doesn't mean that you have to be the creative person in the room. It doesn't mean that you have to be the one that, you know, thanks to the original quote or idea. The question is though, is are you well read? Are you well? Positioned, if you would, to learn. And I love the quote borrowed wisdom, and he starts off, you know, taking in his own father, one of the early quotes in introduction, he takes from his father in which he said he his father was off in World War II and he wrote him saying that he was going to quit boy scouts to spend more time playing sports and his father sent back and one of the mail back then victory mill. He said on the side, once you quit one thing, then you can quit something else, and then pretty soon you'll be a good at being a quitter.
Chip Lake: 'The Voters Always Make the Rules'
"Identification process. Non Republican non Democrat independent, whatever they want to call themselves. Back and forth. From your perspective, I mean, you've been in general consultant for years. You've looked at polls. I've looked at pose. How is that really going to play out? Or do we really know yet? Well, I don't know that we really know. I mean, you've heard me say a million times. You know, that, you know, in this business, the consultants don't make the rules. The candidates don't make the rules. The press doesn't make the rules. The voters always make the rules. And so what we're always trying to do is figure out what voter behavior is going to be in a particular election cycle. And, you know, I'll give you perfect example. And the general election in Georgia in the Senate race, one of the things that everybody got wrong, not just in the Senate race, but overall too. One of the things that everybody got wrong was the turnout modeling, right? I mean, going into election day, November 8th of this year, I mean, you know, we thought there would be around 4.5 million people vote. I know there were three other major candidates whose teams, you know, you had the governor, you had Stacey Abrams. You had Rafael Warnock, and I know for a fact that their teams had had voter turnout modeling somewhere in the vicinity of 4.4 to 4.7 million. And the voters of Georgia decided only 3.9 million of them wanted to show up and so it was a substantial difference. I mean, you're pulling is only as good as your modeling and everybody's modeling was incorrect. And so, you know, Doug, I think the answer to your question is we just don't know. We have to wait to see how it plays out.
Georgia Republicans Had One Job, Stayed Home Instead
"Obviously, bad news out of Georgia and I wish I could spin it. I wish I could tell you that it isn't bad news. Or isn't that bad? It's not catastrophic. I mean, even with Herschel winning, the Democrats technically still had a Senate majority, and I suppose that might have been what caused Republicans to stay home. But stay home they did. Democrats showed up. In Georgia and nearly 200,000 Republicans in Georgia, stayed home. It's really, really stunning because Georgia Republicans had one job. And the country needed those Georgia Republicans. Approximately one point 9 million Georgia Republicans voted for Herschel Walker on November 8th, approximately 1.7 million voted in this runoff. 200,000 fewer Georgia Republicans. And to a Georgia Republican who will call this show and say, well, yeah, I just couldn't pull the lever for Herschel because I just didn't show up because he wasn't a great candidate. I'd say to you, so you want Rafael Warnock? You think he's a better candidate?
Pastor Jamal Bryant Wants to Grow WEED at the Church
"If it had, if it wasn't for good white people who've adopted the American Dream, we would be screwed as a country. Because if you look at the progressive vote, it is destructive to America. We're going to be, we're going to be an internment camps. Messing with folk that only think about emotions when they vote. How come you blend the church with the LGBTQ? How can you blame the church with abortions? That's what Rafael Warnock offers and people eat it up. I got a video. I'm a send it as soon as Nick get my message he'll send it over. You got past the Jamal Bryant in Atlanta. Talking about he needs to go and get land so the church can sell weed. This is what you get. He's the same one criticizing her she walker. And that man had cheated on his wife. Oh no, how many times? At least once had a baby out of whitlock, on his wife, while he was the pastor of the church. This is the best we can do. And they lift that man up like he a king. Eggman is a dirtbag.
Some New, Alleged 'Intel' on Raphael Warnock
"Some new Intel on Rafael Warnock. Again, I just don't understand why in the world the people in Georgia are going to vote for a guy who is pro abortion. He's a communist, he tried to evict a Vietnam War veteran from the apartment building that the church owns and he ran over his ex-wife. Rafi, Robbie, what are you doing, Rafi? Don't you do that, Robbie? Don't you do that, Robbie. Oh my word, Robbie no, no, not my leg. That's terrible. A legend. So yeah, I don't get it. Why would you do that? That makes no sense to me. But the guy got the votes. He's got the votes. The folks down in Georgia. Double went down to Georgia, and now he's pastoring at the ebenezer baptist church. Who would have thought? All right,
OnPolitics: Who will Georgia voters pick?
"Voters return to the polls in Georgia's Senate runoff. Rafael Warnock is the first black senator from Georgia, either he or Republican challenger Herschel Walker will have the distinction of winning a full 6 year term. Warnock says Georgia needs people who are impatient. Content with things as they are. Who know that while we live in a great country, we can always make it greater. Warnock is the senior minister of Martin Luther King's Atlanta church, Herschel Walker played football at the university of Georgia, and won the Heisman Trophy. We, together, can make anything happen. We can win a championship. And championships are a teams individual
Martha Zoller: The Early Voting Looks Good for Herschel Walker
"You would think that he would have done well in those red areas so that he could campaign in places like metro Atlanta and pick up some of those independent voters. If you look at the map by county, basically from I 20 south, he only ran two points behind Brian Kemp. From I 20 north, not counting the metro counties, but like when you get up into north Georgia in hall county in Dawson county and Cherokee county and union county and oconee county and Walton county, he ran like 6 points behind governor Kemp, all the rest of the counties up there he ran about four points behind. So he had a lot of work to do, but gosh, the early voting looks good, and then tomorrow they're predicting rain. So I don't know what that'll do to the turnout. But we'll just have to see. But I think we'll know fairly early how this is going to come out. Like 10 o'clock. So Martha, so people in those counties, they went and they voted for Brian Kemp, but are you saying they did not vote for rehearsal walker? Right. That's correct. Wow, any indication, I mean, has the campaign been given any indication why that is and what they need to fix that for this runoff? Well, there were roughly 200,000 voters that did not vote for Herschel Walker that voted for Brian Kemp. But the gap between walker and Warnock was only 35,000 votes. And you know, if I'm Rafael Warnock and I out my opponent four to one, and I only got 35,000 of those more, I would be unhappy about that. He knows that he's got an uphill battle both Warnock and walker. Polls are saying 52, 48, but ten years ago, we had three week runoff the last several. They've been 9 week runoffs. I don't think anybody knows what a four week runoff looks like Todd. So what I'm saying is get out the vote. It's in your polling place that you have to vote. It's not where the early voting was. Get out and vote. Don't assume your neighbor is going to do it. Get out and vote and bring your Friends and neighbors with you.
Republican Geoff Duncan Calls Herschel Walker a Terrible Candidate
"Big election day in the state of Georgia, Rafael Warnock and Herschel Walker going at it. Just about every headline I've seen is very discouraging for Republicans. And look, at the end of the day, we will know by tomorrow. Who won the day? But my concern is a very real concern. We're going to be talking with Martha Zoller from W D UN in just a little while. But my concern is about getting out the vote. Tomorrow, you're going to have bad weather, but you got to still get out, you got to go vote. Beyond that, I'm very concerned about the establishment Republicans in Georgia and whether or not they will try and sabotage the election. You say, well, Tom, what are you talking about? Well, the lieutenant governor of Georgia, a guy by the name of Jeff Duncan, is out there, and he's saying that he didn't vote for Herschel Walker. He calls Herschel Walker a terrible candidate. Take a listen. Earlier, today, CBS News congressional correspondent Nicole Killian discussed the runoff election with the lieutenant governor of Georgia. The Republican explained why he decided not to vote for fellow party member, Herschel Walker. I'm a conservative. I'm a conservative because I think it's the best way to govern. I've been a Republican a lot longer than a lot of folks. I think I've got kids probably that could articulate the conservative platform better in some of the candidates that Donald Trump and his group supported all across the country. This wasn't the right brand for republicanism. And I think Herschel Walker will probably go down as one of the worst Republican candidates in our party's history. All right, and that was not just some random Republican. That's the lieutenant governor of the state of Georgia, whose out there effectively campaigning against the party's nominee. What in the world are you folks doing in the state of Georgia?
Herschel Walker: Reacting to Comments Made by Barack Obama
"Is really offensive that is mocking you and attacking you. Well, I don't know whether there's offensive, but it just shows you the type of person he is. You know, one of the things about it is that uncle Joe, that's what he called Joe Biden. Uncle Joe, that's what he called him, so he showed the type of man he was. Joe Biden was somebody that he picked me as vice president but now I seem to be talking about it that shows you the type of man that he is and so that's why I tell the Jordan people he's lost not once but twice in Georgia and now he's out there promoting Rafael that he had done anything for Georgia. He's shown that he votes for every bad policy we're going through right now and he's still promoting someone that's going to hurt Georgia that's going to hurt the United States of America. So what type of clout do we give him? None. Right now I want the people of Jordan didn't know. I'm here to fight for Georgia, not to fight for anyone else, but if I for Georgia and the fact that the people are the United States, we got to get back into this constitution, get back into this America, is number one, we shouldn't have America as we're bad people. We're good people. Herschel Walker on the patriot mobile newsmaker line, Herschel, I do want to ask you about president Trump and maybe you can clear this up. What's the deal? Is he going to campaign for you? Is he coming to Georgia? And if not, why not? Well, he has been campaigning for me and we've been doing telephone rallies together. We've been doing things together. We're going to do even more. And I've welcomed everybody to come down and want to help me to win this great seat for the great people of Georgia because we got to win this state. It is so so important because we don't win this seat. They got to change this country. I think we're going to need to realize what's going on right now. And if you don't like your gas prices, you don't like it how grocery prices you don't like to climb. They got on the street. You don't like this open border. You got to get out and vote. You got to get out and vote.
Nonprofits strain to support voters in Georgia Senate race
"Georgia's Senate runoff is Tuesday and Democrats are making a final push to get voters to cast their ballots early. I'm Ben Thomas with a look at the campaigning. In Atlanta. I'm back. Former president Barack Obama. I am back. Rallying voters. For my friend. And your outstanding center. Rafael warm up. Friday is the last day of early in person voting in the Senate runoff between Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker. Voters have already cast more than 1.4 million ballots amid an all hands on deck push by Democrats while Republicans, especially walker, have taken a less aggressive approach that could leave the GOP nominee heavily dependent on runoff election day turnout. Senate control is not in play, Democrats have already secured 50 Senate seats and have vice president Kamala Harris tiebreaking vote, but 51 would make their position stronger
"rafael" Discussed on Entrepreneur on FIRE
"Going to make the difference. Fire nation, I love how Raphael put this. It's a trap. Why is it a trap? Because you're learning about helping people rather than actually helping people. There's only one way you're going to get good. It's actually doing the thing. Going back to what I said at the beginning of this episode, putting in the reps. Real results come from actually putting in the actual work. If I sat around just theorize about how, what would it be like to interview people on a podcast? And let me just research and read some articles of people that interview people. And let me look at some equipment articles and let me do this in that. Guess what? I would have gained some knowledge, but I got better at podcasting because I got on the microphone and I podcasted poorly for a while. And then just okay for a while. And then a little bit better. And now I'm 2200 episodes in. Okay, listen, I put in some reps fire nation and you can too. It's just doing the thing. So let's get down to brass tax Rafael. How can we build a multiple 6 figure coaching business, no matter what age or experience we have? The thing that's really going to make all the difference. The thing that will actually get you real results is talking to clients. You know, this is by far the most important thing. It's more important than content. It's more important than having the perfect websites. Spend less time trying to look good on the Internet, spend less time positioning and trying to be an authority and spend more time actually in conversations with potential clients. I basically focus my entire efforts on talking to people. When I went from zero to multiple 6 figures, it wasn't about trying to make the perfect funnel. And of course, that could be helpful as well, but the most important thing for me was actually messaging back and forward with people that could use my help. And getting to know them, caring about them, asking them questions. And then finally saying, hey, look, you know, if you like this or if you'd like some more help, let's hop on the call. Let's see how I can help you. From there, build some more values, some more traction, right? Some more that better relationship more rapport. And then from there, hey, would you like to work together? It's just a natural transition. It's human to human connection. In 2019 and beyond, it's getting so crazy with all this content and everybody's just putting out videos and putting out all this content. And it's great. It's amazing. I love the content, but we lack that human touch. And when you actually take the time to talk to your people, one on one, and you get on the phone, it makes such a difference because you actually care about them. You're there for them. And that's what I've kept doing, even doing now, whether it's me or someone on my team to talk to my people and actually see if we can help them, not just putting out stuff and expecting people to come and buy and work with us. It's really all about providing value upfront, but in even the more amazing way that most people do really go out of your way to talk to them. Human to human connection fire nation. I mean, what better way can you put it? That's what innately at our core, we crave as humans. We want to be heard. We want to be seen. We want to be relevant. And we want to be progressing. We want to be getting better. We want to be serving others. We want to be serving ourselves. We're going to be serving those that we love, that human to human connection. And let's just kind of break it down numbers wise fire nation. I mean, you honestly feel like if you develop incredible skills, knowledge, and you're willing to help people at a real core level, that you can't find 9 people to pay you a $1000 a month to really help them exceed in that one area that you're actually good at. That's 9 people paying you a $1000 a month. That's a 100,000 plus dollars a year. That is a 6 figure coaching business. It's attainable. It is truly, truly attainable. And it's fulfilling. And Rafael talk about that. Why have you found coaching to be such a fulfilling career? And why do you now today love helping coaches succeed with their career? Because it really is all about helping people, right? It's the most satisfying thing in the world, you genuinely integrate into their life, find out their deepest fears, their deepest problems, and then you serve them. Nothing complicated, nothing fancy, just being there for another person, helping them through what they're going through, that you can add value. And it really comes down to caring about someone. And that is extremely fulfilling. And for me now, helping utter coaches, building their businesses has been so satisfying because for 5 years, you know, I succeeded. And in the beginning, I struggled and I wish somebody would have been there to basically guide me and support me as I was growing and scaling my own coaching business. So being there for other people, now coaching coaches, something I never thought I'd be doing. It feels really incredible because now it's not just me going out there and helping clients now I'm helping someone else that is then going and helping clients and that is absolutely amazing and your ideal client changes over time. This ideal client doesn't stay forever. It's not this person that you can best serve for the rest of your life as you evolve as you improve as you learn new skills, you can help other people and then even more profound better way and that for me, just seeing other coaches succeed it's so fulfilling because I'm watching the impact that they're having, you know, I'm watching them really, really serve from their hearts and that warms mind more than anything else that really does. Fire nation, I hope you remember who you're listening to right now. This is Raphael. He went from a depressed and anxious janitor to multiple 6 figures as a coach in speaker. Wherever you are in the world right now, fire nation, this is possible. You just have to put in the reps. You have to learn from those who have come before you. You have to believe you have to have confidence because you can make this happen. So Raphael wrapped this up for us. What do you want to make sure fire nation gets from this entire interview? Give us a final call to action where we can find out more about you. And then we'll say goodbye. Sure. Really, I want you to remember that the more you serve, the more you earn, the more you go out there and actually help, the more you support other people, the more value you have to the marketplace, the more you get paid. It's not about trying to trick someone into your product or funnel or trying to convince people that they should buy from you. It's about going out there and really, really helping and when you genuinely contribute and you genuinely make a difference in other people's lives, you will always get compensated. You will always get paid more than you need. You know, it's always been the blessing to me because when I serve people, I get rewarded and that wires your brain in a really healthy way that the more you serve, the more you help people, the more you'll earn. And that has been the biggest game changer for me. And yeah, people want to grow their coaching business if they want to start building more momentum. I invite them to actually come over to my website, Raphael eliasson dot com and they can hop on the free call with my team and basically learn how to scale how to build how to start how to get moving in the coaching industry in a very simple service oriented way. Fire nation, the more you serve, the more you earn. If there's anything you take away from this, take away those words.

"rafael" Discussed on Crypto and Blockchain Talk - Making You Smarter
"Hello, everyone. And welcome to this edition of crypto and blockchain talk. Well, it's another fun day in the world of crypto and blockchain. And of course, just in finance in general, the crypto market has now lost 2 trillion in value, and of course have companies who like coinbase who are laying off their employees, which is actually quite sad. But of course, they've put another press release out just recently saying that, of course, the company has no risk of bankruptcy. We'll talk about that just a little more in a moment, but what I will do is first and foremost, tell you that I have a really interesting man on the podcast today. Not only can you give us a wealth of insight, not just into what's happening out there. I think he's going to have a lot to say. I just get this feeling we're going to have an amazing conversation. But he's also the CEO and cofounder of the trust token. Their protocol, which is called true phi, just like D phi. Oh, there you go. So true phi is really doing some very interesting things, and we're going to go over that as well. And I want to introduce at this point Rafael kosmin, Raphael is, like I said, the CEO. So welcome Rafael. Thank you very much. It's good to be on. I hope I don't disappoint. I have a feeling you're not going to disappoint. It's going to have a lot of insights can be very educational and I'm hoping we're going to crack open some of these news pieces and really allow for us to just look around and see how we can bring another light maybe another viewpoint to what is going on out there because you know for people who are just new to the space it's all very scary. You know it is. Absolutely. Yeah. So go ahead. Tell us why you think it's scary. Well, you know, as you just said, the global stock markets are crashing, bond markets are changing massively crypto has crashed a huge amount, but I will say that for folks that have been in the space for a while, you do get used to this. The joke is that in other industries, they call this a recession or a crash in this industry, we call it a Tuesday. And you have to get used to these kinds of ups and downs if you want to play with these kinds of game changing technologies that are inherently going to get overhyped, and then they're going to come back to reality and then they're going to get over hyped again.
"rafael" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Thinking because it just wasn't none of it was panning out how he had planned. But yeah, it was a frustrating watch from alcaraz. Yeah, and look, I think alcaraz will learn from this and I think ultimately it will end up being an experience he will use, you know, think about the way he used that experience against Hugo Gaston at the end of last season in Paris. That was quite a scarring experience or moment you would have thought where he lost his lead and the crowd was all against him. You know, you felt like they could there could be some sort of hangover from that for a few months and he just come out this season seemingly toughened by it. So I think in the long run this will be a good experience for our careers, but from various point of view, this was the Grand Slam performance that I feel like we've been waiting years for. I mean, it's the first time he's beaten a top ten player at a Grand Slam. He was previously Owen 11 against them and yeah, I do think in those last couple of sets, our crew has played well and stuck with him. Played with him and I didn't think this performance was going to come, to be honest. I've certainly not in this match. I kind of thought we knew who's where I was as a Grand Slam player. The difficult thing for him is he's, you know, it's only the quarterfinals. He's still got to do it again against Rafael Nadal if he is to take that next step. Here's one for you. Is Alexander zverev as he made this stride and beaten this top ten player, because he's on probation. And because he can't afford to throw his racket and lose his temper. And hold it together. Has that given him a poise that is enabling him to actually get the best out of himself now? Well, the next one will ask him. Yeah. I'm not sure how that'll go, but we'll ask him. Yeah. It's just interesting because he hasn't pushed the boundaries of that probation. Since he's had this situation in February, and I did think, you know, he's somebody who's so tightly wound up and he usually just explodes, doesn't he? And the racket goes and he'll say what everybody thinks. What he just he hasn't even come close to doing that since then. And he can't afford to, but he also hasn't done it. So I just I wonder whether actually this is in some really weird way has ended up aiding his attempts at becoming the best player he can be. That also incidentally is evidence that hot headed tempers in the heat of the moment can be controlled. With. Rules and measures and consequences. Talking about all this all these other acts of tempestuous headed racket abuse and all the rest of it in dangering members of the crowd and court furniture and all the rest of it. This does make the consequences stiff enough and it works. Look, we'll have plenty time to previews whereof against Nadal. That's in.

"Well, it is nearly 3 o'clock in the morning and we have all just watched Rafael Nadal do something truly extraordinary. Which is a phrase that I and others have said far more than we should ever have been able to say over the course of the last 20 years. But tennis finishing one 30 in the morning and Rafael Nadal doing superhuman things are no longer have never been particularly unusual events and yet we should not take them for granted. We should not take what we are seeing tonight for granted, David Lawrence. No, no, we shouldn't. And I've still struggling to get over the fact that he's here at all and competing properly after what I saw at the end in Rome. That looked too far, gone. And injury or problem, a physical impediment for him to be able to perform like this. Well, that was made to look stupid. It wasn't it. And I think most people felt like that coming into this tournament. I don't know too many people who thought he had a realistic chance. Given given how he looked, but then he worked his way through those early rounds. He's withstood the FedEx Oceania scene match, which he didn't look very good in really for parts of that. But tonight, the way he came out and just took it to Djokovic and just decided, I'm going for it. And I thought he was trying to win it quick and like he did two years ago. A year and a half ago in the October match that they played and it was very similar, wasn't it to 6 two three love just pummeling Djokovic and he was shortening the points and flattening it out and absolutely blistering shots left right and center. But it was almost more surprising what happened after that. How we won when he didn't win that second set. I can't get my head around that. Matt, when we watched Rafael Nadal win the Australian open in January of this year, just doing the completely unthinkable. I mean, a reaching that final in the first place having been in absolutely no formal fitness before the tournament, but doing what he did in that final coming from two sets to love down to win it. We decided we would we would never again back against Rafael Nadal that we would forever think anything was possible. And yet two months later, this felt impossible, didn't it? I know he hasn't won the tournament yet. And he may not, but he feels a little bit like he has in some ways. Yeah. We're idiots. We're fools. Matt did you think like we thought? Because you're usually the one who says, no, no, it's Nadal at Roland Garros. I always say that. Except I didn't say it this year. And that is despite seeing what I saw in Australia as Catherine says, I was so taken by how much pain he was in in Rome. As you said, just a couple of weeks ago and I didn't think this was possible. You then throw in the fact he's playing, playing Djokovic at night. I don't know what we were so worried about. I mean, and again, it's a case of honestly doubting him because I would have had probably the same feelings going into the 2020 final that you mentioned, David. And he came out in this one like he came out in that one, as you said. Just a blistering start. Absolutely vintage Nadal for the first hour. While there was still blue sky above the stadium, he was incredible. And then honestly, the sky turned black. It turned dark. And there was 45 minutes, 50 minutes there. When it all barely won games, as Djokovic fought back in that second set and I did think, okay, maybe these are the conditions slowing down. Maybe this is all favoring Djokovic. He was starting to time his returns and starting to dictate with the forehand and I started to think, okay, Nadal's incredible, but this is the match I was expecting, Novak Djokovic, being able to handle him. And then the start of the third set happened and the doll goes up a double break and I just didn't see that happening at all and then the latter half of the match was the Nadal we've seen this year in 2022. Him doing things which I no longer thought were possible for him to do and yet he keeps doing them. He's extraordinary. It was the third set that was the biggest surprise of the match to me. Their last two meetings at this tournament Nadal has made strong powerful starts in both here last year, and of course he went on to lose that epic match to Djokovic and in 2020 when he went on to continue what he did in the opening set and roll over Novak Djokovic frankly in that October final. So yes, although it was quite startling, seeing him do that given everything we've said about his form coming in here. And I think Djokovic looked quite startled, we've seen it before, Djokovic coming back in the second set. We've seen that before. Rafael Nadal just squashing that momentum that Djokovic had gained in that second set. And as you said, making it look like the tide is his turn here, especially with the weather changing. That was just an extraordinary feat of tennis and of match management, which is such an unsexy term, isn't it? But it's relevant there. Yeah, Nadal Nadal made it sexy tonight somehow, didn't he? He went to double break up in all three of those opening sets..

"We're talking contracts. You know what that means, Alex. We got to bring up the number one story in Red Sox land over the weekend, June Lee reported this for ESPN dot com. Right around opening day actually right on opening day. Last week, and that was the fact that apparently Xander Bogart's not pleased with the Red Sox and he is looking for elite shortstop money and the Red Sox priority is Rafael Devers. None of that surprises me. Not anything that I just uttered in that sentence surprises me. You. No, no. Look, I think that they should try to bring back both if you have to pick one. It's diverse. It's obvious. Yes, I don't think that's any question. So I think Trevor story signing was the writing on the wall. Again, it would have been cool to have all three. You add casses to that. You might get the best offensive infield and baseball for four or 5 years, whatever it may be. We talked about this last time I was on. I think they should be able to sign both. There's no other big contracts on the horizon. The cassus might be the next one. And at that point, Bogart still might be over. But if they have to prioritize one, it's never. That being said, they have to sign Raphael Devers. If they're going to let zander Bogart walk, you can't lose both. No. And Rafael Devers is off to the kind of start that Red Sox fans would like to see one home run. He's got two doubles, 5 hits overall. In 16 at bats, he's hitting three 13. His OPS is 9 78 through four games, whatever that means. But I don't think there's going to be any slowing down. One thing I did notice, and we saw it on Monday again, Raphael Devers has some range now, especially to his left. And that play he made in the middle part of the game on Monday was very, very impressive. And if he can make those plays, then absolutely, he gets his wish of wanting.

"It's not doing things wrong to the horse. You can take it a little bit long to you, but not let go wrong to the horse. I have guys here that particularly, I don't love the guy, but I never laid. He's never catch him beating a horse off. And he treats his horse well. He likes the horses. So that love that I don't have for him as a man as a person. I left it on the side and I just read him well, make sure he had what he needs. And he looked after the horses for me. Rafael my special guest here on trainer talk presented by phasic tipton. Rafael how many horses do you have in training now? Right now I have 32 horses. Based at Tampa Bay downs and then you'll go to Monmouth again this summer, is that the plan? Yeah, I have about ten to two years old. And 2020 other one in some ponies. But I only take ten to year olds and I will take ten other horses to mama and I go with a little bit of a gap to claim some horses over there. And then stuff like that. And I believe we will ship a wholesale due to colon and now if it suits the race for the host. Was in the headlines last year, a lot of it had to do with not just the great racing that they have, but a lot of it had to do with the fact that they banned the use of whips by jockeys in their races. You had a similar situation when you were riding in Norway. So you were really somebody who could relate and understand to that particular issue. Tell me more about what happened in Norway and how it helped you understand what those riders were going through at Monmouth last year. Well, they, of course, they went mad and I make friendship with one or two and I say like you are never going to be the government. Animal defense. This is, oh, we have to talk with the guys. And with John high and stuff up in marmot, because they had to change it. So he's not up to him. If it's up to him, I'm sure he will change it. But it's not up to him. The only thing you can do is go and make sure you can push all the way home because that's how it is. And everybody thought like if they run horses from behind, they could not win that I gave that interview and I say now horse is going to come a lot more from off the pace. Because when you are in front, your horse automatically going to relax. And whenever you want to leave that horse up, you're going to need the whip and you're not going to have it. But the horse coming from behind, he sees your horse in front, he will catch up for that horse. If you have a good hot enough, and that's what starts happening, a lot of horses come off the base there. They think they have the record last year versus coming off the base. We know it. Yeah, that's completely different than what the immediate perception was going to be. I think the jockeys too, they came out and said, wait a minute, this is a safety issue, but as a former writer and somebody who had to go through that in Norway, did you look at it as being a safety issue? I don't know. I mean, the track here is much more safe in over there. That is up and down and stuff. And of course, two years old, this is a little bit risky because they can slide in and out and you kind of need to whip to correct it. But sometimes it's even the frustrated for me because there is some hostess that I'm not taking up to mom on this year because they run three times. They were three times last. And they win already two three races here. Of course, the competition is a little bit low, but still the horse doesn't go without he needs one or two in the eyes to get going to get the gears warming up. So I'm going to leave those horses at home. I'm not taking it, you know? Yeah. Yeah, interesting. Rafael is my special guest here on trainer talk presented by phasic tipton, Rafael. We're coming down to about the final three minutes of the program, and this is really flown by. I would love to spend more time with you up the road because your story is just fascinating. And again, we'll encourage people to check out the podcast on our website if they happen to miss any of this. What goals have you set for yourself as a trainer? I know that you were very disciplined as a writer. What goals do you have as a trainer going forward? Of course, I'm aiming to be to be a well known training and being seen like whenever I put a whole scene like on a stake or something, I haven't won my first take yet, only been second, but I want to be well recognized and have the respect from everybody else that going racing and say, like, okay, when this guy coming, he's coming to win races. And of course, you're not winning everything, but he's a he knows what he's doing and I hope people see and later on hitting on the dollar some new owners and just as good as my owners and let's see what's going to happen and let's say I want to be a shutdown I want to be a top player. I want to be like them. I want to be big. But I know it's going to take many, many years. They did the same. But everybody, they didn't born big, I guess. Yeah. Yeah, Bill Mott tells the story all the time, how he couldn't get stalls at a very small race track when he was starting out because his horses weren't good enough and now here's Bill Mott the Hall of Famer and he's won just about every big race there is to win. So everybody has to start somewhere and certainly you're off to a very quick start. One minute left Rafael in one minute or less. Tell me something you enjoy doing outside of racing that maybe we haven't talked about yet. I like shooting like so normally on Mondays guys the racetrack it is off. It's not open. So we go to the farm. We do a little bit of a barbecue or check the horses there and we go to the back of the farm to shoot some guns. We have some nice different guns. So we should have a drink in chill out. And drive my wall cars. That's what I like sometimes. Yeah, well, it's a fascinating story, and I really appreciate you spending time to share it with our listeners here today, Rafael..

"Talking to a trainer Raphael here on trainer talk presented by phasic tipton. If you are just joining us and you miss the first half of the show, you can check it out on podcast afterwards that's horse racing radio dot net and all major podcast platforms. Rafael the trainer of the month in March at Tampa Bay downs he's gotten off to a fast start to his career as he was just talking about and the reasons behind that. Raphael, it takes a village, if you will, to be successful. I know you're the man steering the ship, but you have to have help. You can't do everything yourself. You have a very good assistant there at Tampa Bay downs by the name of Mina haug, who, by the way, also the mother of your infant son, Rafael. So tell me a little bit more about that relationship and how it all works. If we go back a little bit to Norway, when I quit riding, so I was down in a moment in my life, and Mina we were like dating. So she was the only person heard and her family to support me. And by then, I say, I'm leaving and she drove me to the airport and stuff and I said, like, whatever I go on the wall, I don't know how it's going to be and what's going to happen. But you always going to have a spot around me. Not necessary as my girlfriend. But as a friend, I will do everything to help you out. So after three or four months, you come after and we date a little bit more and stop making a kid. But we are not together, but yeah, she cares a lot about the horses. She grow up around horses and so her family is wonderful people. They are teachers back in Norway. And she's very well educated kid. It's just that is not much to say as a couple, but there's a lot to say as friends and working together. And that is half of my success belongs to her. Very much so. I've had many trainers come on this program over the years and talk about their team because, you know, look, you get to a point where you can't necessarily be the person, you know, putting your hands on their legs every single day. If especially if you get a big operation, and it's important to have good assistance and good help, right? Yeah, a 100%. If you don't have that, it's not going to go forward. Then it's a very difficult thing to do because your help, they have to be scared of you. They have to like you. They have to respect you. So it's all going on. So if they are too much afraid of you, they're not going to work for you. If they are too likely, like you too much, they're not going to work for you either way. And you have to pay well and respect them. So I do that. I paid them very well. All my help, I believe I'm the most paying guys here in Tampa. And I give them respect. I do them barbecues here once in a week. After we done in the barn, even if we win the race, if we don't, we just stick out, have a talk a little bit. And once in a blue moon, if things are going wrong here, I put them together and say what's going on. Can we talk? And we work this out, or if somebody is not happy enough, when you leave, one finds someone on the job, I need people that wants to be here. Not only be here because you need the money. I want you to want to be here as well. And want to do good and want to be seen and I need the help. I need somebody that can help me, not only come get the money and go. That's so such a great way to look at it because people that just see trainers and their names in the racing form. They don't often think that, you know what? They're running their own business. So they have to handle the finances. They have to handle the people that work with them and it's a multi layered profession. It's not just as simple as saddling the horse in the afternoon and watching them run. Yeah, I wish it was like that, but it's very stressful. And especially that is moments that you are not winning as much, luckily, the last environment we did well last year we did well. And now we do it very well. So we haven't go through that moment yet, but I will tell them be prepared because it will come. This is a fact will come ups and down. So we have to go stick together and whenever they don't come, we're going to work out of it. We're going to get out from there. So let's keep everything nice and smoothly. You know, when we win nobody goes crazy, when we lose, we're not going to hang ourselves, you know? Let's just keep things offset like mice income. Yeah, just an even keel one level. What advice do you give to a young trainer that might be thinking about starting his own business today? Make sure you, that's what you want 100% and make sure whatever help you get stick with it if it's good for the horses. Even if the guy is a little bit slow and lazy, but it doesn't beat the shit out of the horses are not mean to them..

"You have to be like very clean. And observation, observation, everything around you. And example, like myself, I'm going to put it myself, bob basil Brown, Christopher Clement. Or a trainer that we in three races a year that these are in a trainer. At the race track itself in the morning, we can not do so much different than each other. You go up there, you gallop, you counter your geography is a little bit it's a fairly you need to gain weight on that horse or take weight off. Of course, you have to balance it and but I think details is where separated the success from non success. The details back in the bar, you know, like you see a shoe crossing three a little bit, you go, you change in the feet of that particular horse that are not eating, you feed that feeling that skinny and sweating maybe four times a day instead two and this is a small detail that with a little bit of a passion and hard work, you're going to get it back in the winter circle. You also look at each horse as an individual. So even though you have your own system in your own program, it doesn't necessarily mean that every horse has to fit that specific program, right? They're all individuals. Yeah, it's mostly like the people have to follow this system. The horses, the horses tell me what they need. I mean, I look at the horse and I see how it's training and I say, okay, I need to take the training back on this horse. So this one I can take a little bit upgrade the training. You know, and I look at the race, try to look a month before, even if the condition books here is a little bit strict for me to get going, but now I'm handing it very well. But I try to you can not train a big Coke and a skinny feel in the same and feed them the same. That's definitely for me, it's definitely wrong. And my horses, they need like a really deep bedding, nice bag of hay in an alpha and clean water, the water has to be like 99% clean. What's been the most important lesson that you've learned so far, Rafael? How to lose? Really? Yeah. But I spent the last year out in the beginning, I couldn't really win a race. I was running hard one second, second, third, my own is one to run them a little bit higher where they like them to be where I was like them to be, but wasn't where they could be. So before that happened, it was a lot. And I was new here. As I say, I don't talk much, but I was hearing a lot of things because I'm detailed, so I have all my matching. I have all my horses with four poles, white balls, white gert, with the hood on, they need to look good. I mean, I like them to look that way. So I was hearing stuff like, for example, what is this cloud coming from? Can't we in a race? Oh, I'm going to claim all his horse and teach him how to train. And eventually I start winning races and in the last month of the meeting over the last 45 days, we won by ten races in a few seconds and thirds. Then I get going again and get my motivation, but it was sometimes that I lived the racetrack here to go to the farm. And like I have tears on my eye and I said, I don't know what to do to make any difference. I do everything what I know. Yeah. It sounds to me like you're still a very competitive person. Is that a good way to put it? I think you have to be, right? Yeah. Well, all great athletes. Like when you were a jockey, you hate to lose, right? It's part of the game. You know you're not going to win every single time, but you have to have that desire to win. And that hatred of losing, if you're going to be successful. Yeah, you know, if you don't win even coming second, second is the first lose. So and winning is an injection of an expiration. Getting up in the morning because this job gets like early, early mornings. And I tell you, I love to sleep from 2 o'clock in the morning until ten. I do believe that's my best sleeping, but at 4 o'clock for 30, we have to get up and go to the barn and get things done. Has that been a big adjustment for you? No, because there was a job always work. But if I tell you that I like to wake up early and go to work like this, I'm going to like you, you know? It was good. A little bit longer. Why do you think you've been able to get off to such a fast start with your career? Because then the owners, they come into an agreement with me. And I told them listening either we run the horses where they belong, what they tell me that they belong, that I can see what they can do. Or I'm going to stop spending your money and you're going to spend my name that I don't even have. So they say, okay, let's go ahead. We are just hitting the board there, but not winning. So let's try to win. And then I say, let me run the show. Give me a chance to make a mistake. And if I make a mistake, I promise you to come and tell you that my mistakes, nothing wrong with the horse. And it's been seems like that is the day we start winning. And I've always been very honest with them and I say, okay, we have to pay the people well, look after our people, which they are likely to do that. And I have the same people mostly since the time I.

"Our trainer talk programs, not just this one, but they're all up there for you on a special trainer talk page. You can go back and binge listen if you want to to every single trainer talk, this is the tenth season of trainer talk presented by basic tipton and it has been quite a ride, began with Ron Ellis back in. I think it was September of 2012, and here we are talking with Raphael, the trainer of the month at Tampa Bay downs in March and he has such a unique story. He told you part of that in the first half of the show, the second half of the show going to feature more of his story. Also want to remind you that you can follow us on social media at Twitter, horse racing radio network on Facebook. If you want to learn more about our programming and keep up to date with what's coming up here on the network. Well, Rafael, we left off talking about the fact that you came to Miami. You took a little time, then you ended up working with Eddie Woods and Eddie is somebody who I've gotten to know over the years. He does a fantastic job with his operation. And I can only imagine getting a chance to learn from somebody like that has been a huge benefit for you. Oh, absolutely. That was now I have my own year in here that I trained. And I was I'm very happy that I took that step. It was very tough, very hard from being a jockey to go in and break hearings. But if he ever listening to this, he knows I was never one day late. I was never sick and I was lucky to not even follow up on one horse in the whole meeting. It was a wonderful, wonderful learning for sure. And he's a money maker. He knows how to make those horses go forward. Yeah. He's incredible. And to see what he's done with his operation and what he does when he brings horses to these sales is pretty remarkable. What kind of teacher is Eddie Woods? He's not a teacher at all. He do things for himself. He has his own system and you just have to follow the system. I mean, that's how it is. And that's what I took into my band here as well. This is my rules. In my system, if you want to work here, it's not like I'm your boss. You have to follow my system. If you follow my system, everything is going to work out. And of course, as I'm young and learning, I need good riders or to give me a good feedback. The other names you mentioned is we were going to the break. You mentioned the name endsley oaks farm. And that's in brooksville, just about 50 miles south of Tampa Bay downs. Bob Jones and his wife Jill are the owners of ensley oaks, and that's been such a wonderful relationship for you. Yeah, that's been probably one of the best thinking life for me right now as a professional. They meet those guys, meet those people. And it's just like, you know, it's on the side. It's a little bit like a family. They are very worried about some other stuff. They are like a grandfather from my kid. And whatever I need from them, I just give a call and say, listen, we're going to do this. And if it's a reasonable thing, of course, they will say, okay, go ahead and give a try. You have to make much mistakes so far. What's their operation like? They have defined. They are very rich. They are very powerful and very kind people. They have another company in Massachusetts and they have cows as well. To beef and they have a broad farm where they start breathing now heavily stronger again and they have, I'd say like bent of money and they've been in the business for a little bit for a good while. But they weren't successful. And it wasn't because they didn't put the money in. It was because the operation was running a little bit left handed. You went from there, well, you're still there. You're still working with them, obviously, and still training their horses. But you began your training career, actually launched your career last year. And you had immediate success in that first year. One thing that you were quoted as saying was that it all happened fast, and it was a lot of work and a lot of things to learn. And then you went on to say that you're still learning as you go into this new endeavor. What are some of the things that you've had to learn? I mean, of course, it's hard to say what I still have to learn, but it will come something. It comes every day. I think that's okay. I didn't know this. So what I have to learn is I put in a piece of a paper I don't really know. But I know there is a lot to learn because I think these, let's say, last week, I thought, I know a lot, but this week I know much more. Last year, I knew a lot, but this year, I know much more. So I do believe next year, I'm going to look back and say, okay, I know much more than last year when I was giving that interview. So I do believe you have to improve and things are changing and systems medications, like now with the shoe, you can not put issue. Everything is like learning and it's a lot small things details to pick it up. And if you're not able with the open mind to learn, I don't I do not think we're going to have any success on this. Have you taken time to talk with any other successful established trainers, maybe at Tampa Bay downs or when you went to Monmouth park last summer? Were there other trainers that you would talk with and ask questions and pick their brain? No, I never talked much with nobody. I'm a very quiet person. I don't talk so much. Some people don't how can I not put it wrong? They're like, oh, who is this guy? You know, he never says nothing. He's just quiet and he's just doing his thing and like I don't bother nothing. I just look after my people and my barn and if let's say if that is a fight in the next barn ain't my problem, you know what I mean? Yeah, right, right. You would never know listening to the show that you are a quiet type of guy because you're very well spoken. You tell great stories and I'm honored now that we're going to get an hour conversation together. That's a good thing. This might be the longest you talk to anybody in a long time. One other thing that I read about you is you said you're a very detailed guy. And that you like the small details, taking care of the small details. Does that go back to your training and the jockey school where it was very structured and very military like? I have one thing like to put that way..

So I was sitting last and they open up I pass inside from last to the first place and we went everybody like 5 horses to the line. Me and Paul versus to the line and the one by like an ahead or something. I like then it was like top chalk is as well. You have a few nice names up in German as well. I mentioned the fact that you speak for different languages fluently. You talked about having to learn English when you were stuck in Dubai after your first horse didn't make it. English, Spanish, German, and of course your native language of Portuguese. It was that kind of the same thing was out of necessity that you had to learn Spanish and German. A 100% was a ghost necessity necessity, as you say, it was not because I was keen to do it or anything. And I think I have a gift from God. I can simulate things and learn things pretty fast, let's say, you know? If I hear two times three times that word, I believe it hardly goes on my head. If I put attention on it. So and that thinks that I can not learn. Example, play golf and the worst person ever. And play guitar. Two things I would love to do, but I never managed to do. I tried, I tried to try it and I gave up. On those two things. You know, one of the articles I read as I was getting ready for the show was story that was done down at Tampa Bay downs by Mike Henry, who is the he works in publicity at Tampa Bay downs. And it was a fantastic story. And one thing he mentioned in there is that you also enjoy driving muscle cars. That's something you're pretty good at. Yeah, I love that. It all goes together with the speed on horse race on a bull ride. I love shooting as well. I think everything goes to one side. I did a few years of MMA as well. To keep my weight down, so all these it helped me to become a good ride and I like that kind of thing. And that's I believe why guitar and the goal of the suit into my system. I don't even know if I'm less hand the right hand when I go to that. How about with the stick, you're left and right, right? You can do both. I can do both very well on the second on riding it. Yeah. What was it that eventually led you to step away from riding and say, okay, I'm not going to do this. I've done it for 14 years. I had to do something different. It was a kind of drama, actually, and if you look on open Internet, you can see there is a 15 minute video. It was the year 2019 August 24, if I'm not wrong, was a day in Norway. And I have 6 rides. And end up winning 5 races out of those 6, but I wasn't able to ride because I took Lasix to get my weight down to manage to get my weight to the race day. And I was some weeks before. I've always got done and adopting. So and then they only gave me the announcement. I could not write 5 days to the race. I have all my rights. Everything was said to I was looking forward for the day. I have even some Australian friends coming over and then the jockey club called me and say you show up in the office because we have a problem. So I say all right. And then when I got there, they say you can not we're going to suspend you for 30 days. And even on the I said, I tried I tried everything to write that there and say you can take all the money I make today, you send it to Syria, Africa. You can keep the money, just let me do my work. This is my living. And so they say, no, so I just quit right. That's okay. Well, that's it for me. The same day the same day as the race day. I showed the track for the jockey who took over the rights for me that day. And my trainer book a ticket for me and I came to Miami. Wow, and immediately started to focus on training, I would assume. No, I went actually, I stayed in Miami for about 40 days, cleared ahead a little bit. And I want to do something that I have never done. I want to break yelling. So I search an Internet and I found stable in Ocala. Yeah. And once you work for him and then I met a friend that also knew him and recommend me to him. So I went to work for him and hold meeting successfully. We did very well there. And then I went to ansley oaks farm to just write some horses for them. They were shorter rider. I was waiting for my papers get ready to go back to France, to train there. And this meaning time and slave didn't let me leave. They just say, okay, it actually work out like a glove because it was kind of a little bit of a mess in the barn there and there was no nothing to follow. It was a mess. Everybody do whatever they want. So I put things in place. They give them the opportunity and I manage it to put discipline into the things and constantly job working on it. And I think workout for both of us. Everything happens for a reason and nobody knows that more than my special guest, Raphael here on trainer talk presented by phasic dipton. Gonna get to a short break, stay with us when I come back. We'll talk more about that segue into training. What he's learned and how he's gotten off to such a fast start. That's next. This is trainer talk, presented by facing tipton on the horse racing radio network..

"Then when you're ready, ready to go. And if you pass it, you pretty good. But that is like every hundred apprentices may be 15 passes. Wow. So it's a very low percentage and as you said, they run it as if it's a military academy. And I guess that's a good thing because you learn, you learn discipline. You learn how to, I assume, do things like this and talk with the media. And all that kind of stuff too, right? Yeah, for a small example, you go in there. So now you don't belong anymore to your family. You belong to school. So they open you an account on the bank and you only have access of 25% of the money you make. The others, the other 75 stays in one account and you only are able to take that money out. The day you pass as a brand is or they let's say you quit, okay I'm quitting. So if I have that $10,000, I take my $10,000 and I go. So the meaning they want to do that is the apprentice to collect some money and leave the school with like 200, $300,000 in cash to be able to buy a house and go from there. Wow. How do you acquire the mounts? Do they do it for you? Or do you have to go out and meet with trainers and get on your own horses? No, it's like we all use the same clothes and that is a rail by the track that trend is made. So that is like in Brazil is probably like a hundred trainers in one spot. And it's not like in bonds like here you go to a bank. There is a center where like a paradox, all the horses go in the morning to the product. And the trend is staying on the upstanding and they say, hey, Rafael, please go on that horse number 13. So okay. I can never say no, even if the horse is crazy or stupid or something. So I always have to say yes sir. And you go there, he tells you what to do. And we probably see things on right between 20 to 30 horses in the morning. Every morning. Then you go back to school, 10 o'clock. And you have like, you look at the least, which you have a breakfast and then that is the least Euclidean you and another guy is cleaning the toilets. The other one cleaning the beds, the other one, cleaning the shadow, the other one cleaning the ponies that you start with. So that is work. And then you have to go to a normal school and then you have another thing which is very interesting for me is so it's 40 races Friday Saturday Sunday in Monday, ten races a day is 40 races on the weekend. Everyone is day, we have to go to a movie room, right? Like moving room and we have with the teacher, because if you go into the races, you have to follow every race. You have to watch ten races if you're riding or if you're not riding, you have to watch. So let's say on the day we look at the movie, the teacher say, because, look, what happened on the last race on a Saturday? Who won? Who was the favorite and what happened in the race? Tell me the story of the race. And then you have, okay, this raise one genre by three legs. It was sitting third right behind the leader. And he beat the favorite or he was the favorite or something like that. And then you say like, sorry, I miss that race. Okay, he gives you one more shot. What happened more than the first phase? If you missed two shots, you get a weak suspension that you can not write. Wow. Look at that means that you are not doing your job. You're not watching races. That's what you do. Yeah, so it's a film study session, essentially, right? With a quiz in a test built in. Yeah. So then he put the replay and then you have to pick as well. The worst ride that you think of over the week. Like, you know, who is the worst rider that we know, and then you say, okay, it's Rafael because he could never get beaten and he makes sure he got fitted with this Ross and why he got pitted. What will you do different than him? Then I said, okay, I will do this way instead. You know what I mean? And you have to go to the gym, training and every kind of stuff like that. And you only can go out on Wednesdays on an Assad today. When is dating field 10 o'clock in the night? And on Saturday until 1 o'clock in the morning, if you are not riding the next day, if you write, you can not leave the school. Wow. Was there ever a point when you were in school that you thought I'm not going to make it? I can't do this. Yeah, you know, because I grow up wild and when I'm coming into that place being taught all these things and have to clean toilets and do all this stuff like that and watch the.

"That was, of course, before the bull riding I started writing when I was 18, 19 and planning early 20s, but I started my first race award when I was 13 years old, quarter horse two and a half full longs. And I went from there to one man races like that and all young kids start that age. So my father passes away when I was 13 as well. And at 16 years old, I got into a brand new school in Rio de Janeiro. There were a one 41 races, I believe in one year. And then I got a transfer to some power school. I also win 50 something races there. And then from there, I went to Dubai. I got an opportunity to go and ride in Dubai. Who had the biggest influence on you as a jockey. As a joke, the guy I follow like. Yeah, the person that maybe had the biggest influence or the one that inspired you to most, you know, outside of your family to want to be a jockey. Was there another jockey that you looked up to? Yeah, there is many jobs as I look up to and I wrote with big guys up in England, what William Bill, Christophe soumya and James Doyle frankly silves the souls like many, many big names you can imagine. And but a guy I always look up for him a little bit who was, I mean, Brazilian guy called G one more data is I find his style of writing wonderful is in Hong Kong now for many years. What's his style? He got like a unique style like he writes very flat on horses. He lying down the horse's neck and he can relax a horse like nobody can relax a horse and there was just one for him and he born with that. And it fascinated me that he couldn't do he couldn't pass the premier school. And as a jockey, a man called Ivan Quintana help him out and he became one of the biggest part in the world. Wow, wow, fantastic stuff, Rafael is my special guest here, trainer talk presented by phasic tipton as you hear it. He grew up in Brazil. Went on to a successful career as a jockey, which we're going to talk more about in a minute, but he comes from a racing family. His grandfather and father both trainers. Tell me a little bit more about them, Raphael. And how they did things. And did your father encourage you to follow in his footsteps and get involved in racing. Yeah, he always say like I was going to be a good jockey. I should watch out my eating things I was young because he wanted me to write and stuff like that. And so were my brothers, what are the jaw okay? And he was my big influence to continue. And to do something good in life after he passes away and stuff like that. So he was my main pedestal. I can call. Yeah, I can imagine that when he passed, you were certainly sad, but I'm sure you were also motivated to want to make a go of this and make him proud. Yeah, a few staff happened, of course, you know, life in Brazil is not as easy in many other countries. Of course, there is countries where life is difficult as well. But the way we went to a period in a life like everything got lost because my father died on a car accident. So from today to tomorrow, everything went, let's say, upside down and my mom didn't hold it very well. So I kind of got adopted from somebody else adopted me, demand call Luis Roberto felco. He was a lawyer and also a trainer. And that meant that men really changed my life. You make me become a good kid and don't try to drugs and he was the man who first bring me to a restaurant. First bring me to an airplane and even put like horses for me to win races like easy. So I could build my confidence right there. So he became a father figure to you. Yeah. We have a very good contact and we talk. We talk a lot. And yes, he's a fantastic man. I will never I will never forget them. Tell me more about your hometown and the racing element in that part of Brazil. That is all most likely spring races two and a half full long two foreign races and you go from city to city. If you have a good horse and it sounds a little bit like calendars in races, but it's actually a legal race. They have batting in stock, not in a TV and stuff, but they do the best in the night before. And the funny thing about that is like, let's say you have a tournament. It's like torn man. So you have 9 horses on a tournament, for example. So you run three races of three on a Sunday, right? And the three horse that won that race on a Sunday, they go to a final on a Monday. And wine Monday. So people can go and change the checks. They put in the table and go to the bank and stuff and get those cash out and stuff to pay the house betting. Wow. Wow, so much different than anything we have here in the states. Yeah, we still have the same tracks like here. In São Paulo and quality, but three racetracks in Brazil. And but the most big thing that is this, they bet cars, the best guns, the best houses, the best everything they just create better. You know, the other thing that's different than what we have in the states is the fact you mentioned the school that you went to to learn to be a jockey. We don't have those. I know Chris mccarran tried to get one started here in Lexington and he did it for a few years and I don't even know if it's still in existence, but we just don't have that same type of concept with a jockey school here in the states. Right. I think that's a very good thing. And the reason it didn't work here, I don't know if they're in Lexington is a whole year around racing. Because this is like the guys to stand. It's like a military in Brazil. It's very, very tough. To go through that, it's like, first of all, you need to be like 113 pounds, 115 pounds and 16 year old, not more than that. And then from the day you come in when you get a green light to ride your first race, the clock starts working like Minas. You have two years to become a jockey professional jockey. So you need 75 winners in two years. Otherwise you are out for whatever reason is. Oh, wow. So you need like, let's say, three months, you need to win 5.

"A bit of ruffalo with the crowd because, you know, there were some calls between serves and when players were in particular deal Medvedev was going to serve. But mostly it had been kept in a lid on, but set number four, you start to see him physically ale, I think he's just a split second slow, but more than that, you start to see the shot selection just go haywire in the most dramatic, almost pretty laughable way. There was the old laugh out loud moment from Daniel Medvedev and just the absolute epitome of a brain cramp, I think, basically. Yeah, there was some weird drop shots. There was some moments where he had the whole core open and he would hit it straight back at Nadal, and obviously part of that is Nadal's anticipation, I suppose. But yeah, I think Medvedev's decision making was pretty suspect and was indicative of someone whose mind had been pretty scramble just by Nadal's ability to stay in that match. And it's interesting what you say about the noise because, you know, tennis matches are so often, you know, silence and then noise, silence and then noise. My overwhelming memory of that was just noise. I can't remember there being that much silence during the match. And maybe that's just because, you know, the noise was so loud it was sort of continuing to ring in your ear even when it was quiet. But it was difficult to think straight. And I think possibly maybe Medvedev was feeling that as well. And obviously, we'll talk about the crowd. But yeah, it just makes it all the more remarkable to me that Nadal did make great decisions because I think actually Medvedev making bad decisions was kind of indicative of the frenzy and at the moment and of everything that was going on around him. But it was Nadal's clear headedness that was amazing. And just the way that atmosphere in the stadium changed as Nadal started making his comeback, Nadal's shot started having much more on them instead of having more effect instead of being more effective. And with that, I think, you know, the crowd sensed it. There was suddenly more noise. There was this couple sitting, I don't know, ten rows in front of us, and at the end of the second set, there they were standing up, waving their Spanish flag so limply and so sort of pathetically that they just were waving it because they had it with them. You know, it was like a sort of prop. It was an apology. It was so apologetic the way we've brought this, we know you need us, but oh, there's not much to wave. But then come the fourth set. I mean, the guy at his guns out. He was fist pumping. He was brandishing his flag. You know, Bobby's head, just they sort of, I think, perfectly encapsulated the way that the way that the feel of the match and the way that the crowd responded to the match just changed through that through that third and in particular, I think the fourth set, because even once the dollar won the third, I still think Medvedev was a pretty strong favorite in the match, but it was the fourth set where really, as you said, Medvedev's decision making Medvedev's physical state became quite alarming for him in the door was just growing taller by the moment. And then after Nadal takes that full set, they both go off the court, don't they, and there's a long enough break that both Matt and I could sneak out to the loo without missing any of the tennis. So thank you, Nadal and Medvedev. For that lube break, we all took a loop break together. So they come back on the court and you'd already pointed out David I think all of our minds had gone to the fact that at this stage it's a mirror image if the one previous Grand Slam final they had played at the U.S. open in 2019. It's a reflection, isn't it? Nadal that took the opening two sets in that one meant that I fight back takes it to 5. And then so often there's that reset going into a 5th set isn't there and so it proved in New York in 2019 and it did feel like, okay, everything's everything is blank slate now from this point forward. But Rafael Nadal did not feel that way because he just picked up right where he left off and immediately started putting pressure on the Medvedev serve. He doesn't break. I don't think at the first time of asking, but he does get quite an early break in that set. And he ended up losing that break while serving for the match. He got to 30 love up, didn't he on his serve. I'm remembering this as I go if that's not completely obvious. And I remember Matt was counting on his fingers. So when he went up to serve for the match, Matt had four fingers up and then I think it was a service winner on the first point and that goes down to three fingers up and then it was another fairly short point to go 30 love two fingers up and never got closer than the two fingers..

Thank you so much for sharing all his insights with us before we let you go is a couple more questions of your space. The you really look up to Bueller inspire you to do what you do here. Good question in the space outside of the space above both just in general what we're trying to build trust. Who are some other trusted. Sources that you rely on for me. Honestly one of my top folks.

Two things that i particularly respect ari that i would really liked to learn to embody more myself.

You know people looking for quick profits and so on but both from a profit perspective and from an impacting the world prospected it.
