"Could say that, you know, people don't want to see jockeys using a whip and race. And I'm all for. Things like Ramon Dominguez and his new riding crop that he is introduced, which is very, very gentle on the horses. It's not like the old days when angel Cordero and those guys would wail away at horses. It's different now. The equipment is different. It's evolved. It's better. And jockeys will tell you it's a safety issue. Having a crop in their hand in case something goes wrong during a race and they need to correct the horse. It's a safety issue. They need it. I think this is a really good move by Monmouth. I'm in favor of this one. I know they caught a lot of heat last year, especially from the jockeys guild. For banning the whip all together, this is a nice compromise. There are limits. I want the jockey can do. And those should be enforced in an enforced stringently. This allows 6 strikes per race, and no more than two in succession, before a horse has a chance to respond. That is in line with a lot of the other racetracks and jurisdictions, and their approach to jockeys using the whip. It assures that those jockeys can't go overboard when encouraging a horse. Or correcting a horse. I like it. I like the move. All right, coming up next, I'm going to turn my attention back to Churchill downs, the oaks and the Derby horses. They've been on the track this morning. Kevin kirstie has been watching them. He's been watching them. Since they've been there, that's his job. He's the publicity manager at Churchill. He is fantastic, and he's going to keep you up to date on everything happening..

"But what makes a different than the rest of the crops is down the area of contact with a horse, the last part of the crop, which we call the popper. Is actually a cylinder. So therefore, there are no edges. There are no corners that can cause harm to the horse's skin. And it's made out of a form that absorbs the impact very well. So when the impact when the jockeys use it, it does produce loud noise. It's sort of like taking one of those sandals that are made out of form that if you hit yourself in the leg, you process like a popping noise. And that is something that is cool because it's just noise, but it's also one of the ways that we also incentivize the horses. So it is a win win to have something that doesn't really cause us harm to the horses game, but also produces noise. So that was an idea that came to me back in 2002, I believe. And I was writing a Delaware at the time. I created a prototype, got a pattern, and then put it aside because I was writing now a couple of years ago I brought into reality just by connecting with another jokey who like me is from Venezuela Carlos Marcus, who writes in fairgrounds right now in him and I call our operating in his house a team of people who help him produce him. There's Ramon Dominguez, you be the host, my thanks to everybody who took time to call in with a question for ramone. Remote listen, I got to get to another break here, but I really do appreciate you taking some time here this morning, always great to hear your voice. I can listen to you talk for the full show. I just wish we could pot you up and let you go. Well done. Thank you so much, Mike, and you can have any time. I very much enjoy speaking about racing, but also interacting with our fans and thank you also to Jim telling doctor Mike for other call in a, I hope we can get to this again in the near future. Yeah, absolutely..

"You can call in right now 8 8 8 9 6 6 four 7 7 6. That is 8 8 8 9 6 6 hr and anything you've ever wanted to talk to Ramon Dominguez about in his stellar writing career, you can do it right now here on the host. Poll question today, I do want to update you on that before I do get to ramone. The poll question this morning at HR N on Twitter is how you can vote horse racing radio network on Facebook, which three year old male should win the championship, the eclipse award for the 2021 season, Medina Spirit, essential quality or life is good and essential quality continuing to be the leader in the Clubhouse here. 66% of you saying it is essential quality 26% for Medina Spirit and life is good 8% of the vote coming in for him. I told you that's who I voted for was life is good. Ramon Dominguez is indeed here. This is you be the host. It's your chance to call in and ask questions or remote. Ramon really appreciate you taking some time. It's great to have you on the show again, my friend. Good morning, Mike. Thank you for having me. Yeah, I'm excited for HR and nation to get to call in and ask you questions. Like I say, Mike Smith was here last week and we ran out of time. I couldn't get all the questions in for Mike. Actually, I'm not surprised. Yeah, no, not at all. Hey, so I have to ask you, your post writing career has included you getting into running more than you were even when you were in training as a jockey. How's that 5 K time coming along? You getting that knocked down a little bit? Yes, it's coming along gray and I'm actually although I just turned 45 my times have been increasing and so I very much enjoy it in last year. One of my last races and there are breaking the 70 minute for the 5 K so I ran out low 16 minutes, which is very good. Regardless of the age, especially for somebody, I guess I can consider myself an amateur running, but I absolutely love it. When you were riding, you were one of the hardest working riders in the sport. And now that you're transitioning into these other hobbies and things that you enjoy doing, do you take that same work ethic and put it toward, say, running and trying to improve and get faster each and every time you go out? I do and it's something that it doesn't really at this point I realized that it sort of ingrained me. It doesn't require a lot of effort for me to get up and like today, for example, is single digits out here in Saratoga in I don't have a problem at all after our podcast after the segment we are running outside. I'll be well dressed, of course. But it's something I feel like it's non negotiable in order for me to reach my goals this summer, I want to run even faster. So ethic is something that becomes sort of a way of life you don't hesitate in your mind. There is no obnoxious. You just go out there and do it. Ramon de megas is here. This is your segment.

Hopefully we'll have time to get to all of them with Ramon coming up in just a little bit. Well, this is a special day. It was 53 years ago today, 1969 that Barbara Joe Rubin was named to ride in a race at tropical park. There were 13 other male riders in that race. They all boycotted the race. They were fined a $100 each and they'd rather pay the fine than ride with a female jockey. And Barbara Joe Rubin is with me on this very special anniversary here on the equine forum. Barbara Joe, good morning, appreciate the visit. Good morning, how are you? Doing very well. You know, I was talking earlier that when I called you yesterday and asked you if you would be willing to join me to look back on that day and on your career, you weren't even aware that today was the actual anniversary day of that occurrence. No, I wasn't. I always remember the day that I won my first race, but I don't really think about the other. Yeah, that was about a month after the race at tropical park, right? Yes. Yes, it was. Yeah. Well, let's start with the tropical park race. When you get named to ride in that race and then all of the other riders say, hey, you know what? We're not riding with a girl. What was that like for you? Well, they all were going to ride with me and they were all congratulating me. I went through all the tests, breaking from the gate working with them. You know, down the stretch. And so I was sure the race was on. And even if they boycotted, we were going to do a walk over. So if they decided not to ride the race, then I would still break in the gate and ride the race. But they boycotted like four races before. Oh, wow. Wow. So did you end up having the walk over? No, because it was four races before it was the last day of racing at tropical park. The crowds were going crazy because, of course, they won to gamble. And so they had to take me off my mount. If it was that race, it would have been okay. But it was four races before when they decided to do the boycott. And jocks came down from New York came up from California, all the jocks came to help out with the boycott. Wow. So if they were congratulating you and the race was supposed to take place, why all of a sudden the boycott? Oh, I'm not sure. I think it was just they got into a group frenzy, you know, about or you are not going to ride against this girl and everybody is going to support it if you're a member of the docs guild. And that's how it went. Were they afraid that you were going to beat them in that race or was it more a matter of, hey, girls don't belong in races. A little ball, I think. And before actually, before I was supposed to ride you know, I was in a trailer and my trailer was backed up to the lawn behind the jockeys quarters. Where they go out and sit out in the sun and all. And one of them through a breakthrough the window or the trailer, that didn't bother me. I thought, oh, well, let them have their little tantrum. But it's still, they had to take me off the horse. Wow. Well, you know, I described you as being a trailblazer. And I don't know if you look at yourself in that fashion or not. But how does Barbara Joe Rubin view herself and the things that you had to go through early on in your career? Yeah, I had to work twice as hard work get there before everybody else in the morning. I couldn't really, nobody really told me a lot. I had to just, I had to just watch and learn through my own experiences, a lot of horses I would get on for free and freelance just so that the more horses I got on, the more I learned and just like the gate, I'd go back there and the afternoons and sit and watch them break from the gate and devise my own way of breaking out of the gate. You know, you mentioned the brick through the window. Were there other incidences too where they tried to keep you out of a race? No, just when I was riding a race, they would go and hook me into a group or a couple of them. It would hit me with whips when they could, like, by accident, but it was on purpose. And I never said anything. I just look over and smile and keep riding. Yeah, did you ever think? Okay, maybe I'm not supposed to be doing this. Maybe I shouldn't be riding or did it just strengthen your resolve even more? Oh, no. I just made me want to work harder. And you certainly did. We'll never deterred me because I always thought.

"So Joel is going to be here to talk about that. He'll be here to talk about what it was like last year just showing up and winning all those big races looking forward to that conversation. This is also today the 53 year anniversary of jockey Barbara Joe Rubin. Entering a race being named on a horse in a race at tropical park, there were 13 male riders scheduled to ride in that race with Barbara Joe Rubin. January 15th, 1969. All 13 male riders, boycotted the race. They all got fined a $100 each. And they would rather have taken that fine than ride against a female jockey. I called Barbara Joe yesterday and I asked her to join me on the program. She didn't even realize that today was the anniversary of that event. It was about a month later when she would come back and be the first female writer to win a professional horse race in America. That was in mid February of that same year. And she's going to be here at 9 40. To tell her story to look back on that day and what that was like for her. Trying to make a mark in a male dominated sport. She truly is a trailblazer. I'm also going to visit with Dell Romans and Tim woken in the final segment of the show at ten 30 eastern. I asked they answer. And that's one of the topics we're going to bring up. We're going to talk about female writers and I'm going to ask them if they were going to give a leg up. To a female jockey, I wanted their horses. Which riders would they pick up the phone and call first? And I think their answers are, I think you're really going to enjoy their answers. Because I know they're both very passionate about that issue. That comes up at ten 30 eastern. Of course, Ramon Dominguez, I mentioned 10 o'clock eastern, your chance to be the host and talk with Ramon. You can call in. You can email your questions. You can hit us up on social media, whatever you like to do. All right, here's the poll question for this morning. Who should win the eclipse award for champion three year old male of 2021? Who should win the eclipse to war for champion three year old male of 2021? That's another topic. I will debate with Dale and Tim at ten 30 on I asked the answer. Give you three choices. Medina's spirit, essential quality, or life is good. Which of those three should win the eclipse award? For champion three year old male of 2021. I told you last week on the program, for me, its life is good. That's who got my vote. A lot of people were posting their selections, their votes on social media this week. I didn't have to. I told you last week who I thought should be three year old champion. Life is good. I don't think you will be. I don't think enough people are going to give him that respect. But to me, it came down to life as good and Medina Spirit as the two horses that had beaten older horses in their three year old campaign, essential quality didn't do that. So that, for me, eliminated him, it gave the other two an edge. And then I looked at life as good in Medina Spirit and what they did head to head. Life is good. Beat Medina Spirit twice. Early in the season, before The Kentucky Derby, and life is good if he didn't get hurt. I think he's the favorite for The Kentucky Derby, but of course you can't let that weigh into your decision. But simply the head to head. Life is good, beating Medina Spirit twice, and really handily in the second one. I think it was the San Felipe. So for me, it's life is good. I'm curious to hear who you think should be the eclipse award champion three year old male of last year. You can go to HR N on Twitter, horse racing radio network on Facebook, or you can email the show. Mike get horse tracing radio dot net if you want to do it that way. So a lot of things to get to when I come back, I'm going to talk about the NTI moment of the year voting, which is now open as well. There are 11 choices, but there's one choice that is not on that list, which is shocking to me. I'll tell you about it next. This is the equine forum. Presented by twin spires on.

"I think that there needs to be an education like you say, not only to educate the public about the need and how this has evolved into a much better piece of equipment or much safer. But also within the sport educated trainers and the owners so that the joke is can also be educated and do the right thing by the horse and no use the crop as much as sometimes they feel like they are under pressure because if you don't use it too much, maybe the trainer or the owner may say that you didn't try. So that perception needs to change. You mentioned me being one of the jokes. I really didn't use it too much. And that is true. However, in the beginning of my career, I would say way too much. I did reach a point after growing after getting a little bit wiser in connecting with a horse the right way where I realized that in some cases you can do more harm by horses just giving you all they have in their ears and they're like, okay, I don't want to run if you hit me. But there are other cases where the horse definitely, if you don't use it, they just don't put their best air for. So again, I think we need to come to the table as I said in the beginning, willing to compromise and watch yet to do that in the sport. All right, the number to call in, talk to Ramon Dominguez on UB the host is 888-966-4776 Dale in California. Go ahead Dale. You're on the line with Ramon Dominguez. Hi, Ramona, a big fan. I got a question regarding some horses you rode. What horse surprised you the most with his success and would horse disappointed you in a big race? So as far as surprising me, with his success, I feel like most horses that I wrote at least at the high level, it was always typically was a process and a progress where they just continued to get better and better. So you were not totally surprised when they achieved a high level victory. But then if I think about in the beginning of their career, for example, a horse light topic. I had the opportunity to write in early on in his career and he already showed how amazing he was going to be. A horse was very precautious and a horse, you just move your hands and he was ready to go. And however, if you would ask me in other time, I was running for Michael Dickens on topic, and I was writing another horse by the name of Soto. White horse, what you want to have a breathing right off. I would have said without hesitation. I could not have foreseen desire that he has become. And Soto was a special horse to me. He was another incredible athlete. He was amazing. And I actually follow up after he retired as well and I was told that he was actually a very good start that he didn't cover too many mayors. I don't know he wasn't too far, but the mayor said he could actually produce a lot of steak winners. So but again, these necessarily the question that you asked me, but in terms of being surprised with the type of stallion that they became, I certainly was somewhat surprised. Anybody could have foresee top it becoming the Sarah that he has become. And in terms of disappointment, there are so many days. I mean, I remember writing both geopolitical and one of the best horses that I ever wrote. I actually anytime that I asked the first one that comes to mind, which is fabulous strike. What an incredible aptly he was. He was a sprinter that could do things that were no normal at all. And I wrote both of them into big races in New York and it was a sloppy track in a very soft turf course, and both of them got me. And that was the day that I was basically just anticipating that I was going to win both races and that was a tough day for me. The phone number to call in 888-966-4776. That's 88 8 9 6 6 hr and you have about three minutes left to call in and ask a question of Hall of Fame jockey Ramon Dominguez, who is here to take your questions on UB the host next week. We'll welcome in another guest that you can call in and ask questions of maybe I'll try to get what do you think remote? We think Dale Romans maybe Dale would be good to have on this segment. What do you think? Lisa and del is, he will be my first choice by far. I absolutely love Dale. Nothing to do with the little mic. He just one of the best storytellers in the sport. He is somebody who is extremely knowledgeable about this. The stories alone, oh my gosh, I will be one of the callers if you have him on the show. Yeah, 888-966-4776, the number to call. If you have a question for Ramon Dominguez about his riding career, maybe about what he's doing now. I thought that was an excellent question to Ramon the things that you're involved with now with the sport. You do an awful lot behind the scenes that people don't even know about now, but it's a passion and it's a lifestyle for you. Yes, and that was part of the question that Jim had and I fell to answer. So yes, after my retirement, I have a continue to stay involved in this sport in many different capacities with in terms of thermodynamics phone. I am just a retired jokey. I am no part of their board, but that is when organization that absolutely is extremely close to my heart. For obvious reasons, I'm a retired due to an injury thank God. I know I disabled jockey. At the same time, I know firsthand, what is it like to walk away on your own by your own wheel sort of speaker from the sport of the profession that you so much love? And I know many of the jockeys who unfortunately have been primarily the table and that is something that we certainly need to do better so anytime that I can donate my time today formally they say what is phone more than happy to do it after care for the horses is something that also I love the fact that in the last decade, a lot more has been done and anytime that I can also turn in my time I'm happy to.

"Call right now and he's here to answer your questions for about the next 15 minutes. So you have to get those calls in now. 888-966-4776. And Ramon, I'll ask you one. When you think back on that career, I played the call of little Mike winning the breeders cup turf in 2012 earlier in the show. I know he also won the Arlington million with you aboard that year. When you think about some of the top horses that you had the privilege to be around, where does a horse like little Mike stack up for you? Because I can tell you I have his bridle here in my house right now. He was one of my favorite horses. So it's hard sometimes to really when I'm being asked, who are your favorite horses or is really hard to put into it? And one hand horses that were your favorite because it probably becomes easier to talk about the horses. I will say what to accomplish the most weight or when the biggest racist but sometimes those are not necessarily more important than other horses that were in lesser levels or lesser competition, the really main just as much to me because I learned lessons through them or we had just a very high connection. Having said that, when we talk about little Mike, he definitely has a special place in my heart. He was a very consistent overcomer because he really defeated the odds in so many different times. We were able to win the Arlington to meet him, which was great, but then winning the British scope that day there were two things that were against those number one. It was really super to be beyond his reach to other, but also he had a proven style that he or at least we thought that he was much better when he was on the lead and that day we tried to order the lead, but right away we had to go to plan B because that position was taken. So now he's going farther distance of more ground than he has before. But also coming from third position. So two things against him and despite that he was able to overcome it and it was just an extremely gratifying moment for me. We had just great trajectory up to that point when in some go races, but that was that one certainly after we crossed the wire was extremely fulfilling and I was so so happy, yes. That was a day that I will never forget very special. Well, Jim and Delaware is on the line with a question Jim go ahead, you're on with Ramon Dominguez. Hello, Ramon. I just want to comment. Congratulate you on the brilliant career you have and the dignity and the respect that you brought to your sport. The professionalism you always showed. I want to ask you about the no whip rule in New Jersey. I know you designed a kinder and it seemed like when you were riding you weren't a big proponent of a lot of the with anyway. You got a lot of running out of horses without the whip. How do you feel about that lip rule and recommendations for how you can improve that perception to the sport? And also I wanted to ask you, what you're doing now in this world. I know you must have something to do with the department disabled jockeys fund and what other contributions that you're still making to the sport. That's a high level mission. Thank you. Well, first of all, thank you so much, Jane for your great comments and certainly when it comes to the writing crop this is something that has been so polarized. And I feel like by now, I understand we should be able to say we, the industry as a whole contour table, open minded and willing to compromise to achieve the ultimate goal, which is to do the right thing by the animal, but do the right thing by this part as well. So in Jersey, I'm not crazy about the role regardless of where crop is being used. The fact that you can carry it with you, but you can not use it at all. You can not defeat the purpose, but one of the issues that I foresee that are going to even greater the problem is in many cases in horse racing, we are so divided also fragmented in terms of you have, I don't know, 17 different race interest in everybody have their own set of rules. And that applies also to the writing crop or the use of their writing crop that is going to be impossible to follow by the jockeys, even if they want to obey. They want to comply and what to do the right thing. Think about these gyms you are writing in new years and you can not use it at all. Or even the opposite, I think is a better example. You're writing in New York where you can use the crop using your judgment. And then you go to New Jersey and you're in the heat of the moment in a big race and you want to win. Chances are you're going to pull your crop and you're going to try to hit your horse. And so now you're going to be punished for that. But then there is one element of one group that we don't really talk too much about, which is the very public. I feel like in order for us to have a level playing field to have a product that is fair for the betters. The writing group should be part of this equation, because sometimes you have horses that are very good, but they really don't put their west if they are incentivized with the writing crop. Having said that, yes, you need to be conscious in terms of how it is used..

"Network Mike Penn baron in the backstretch really happy to have you back in the starting gate with me right up until 11 a.m. eastern on Sirius two 19 XM two O one affiliates in Lexington Louisville and across the country. And of course streaming, worldwide and podcast on our N website horse racing radio dot net. Well, it's not the strongest weekend of racing that we've ever seen. But I guess they well, I guess they can't all be, right? Yeah, they really can't. Aqueduct canceled today because of the frigid temperature is expected in the northeast. So that takes away a couple of the stakes that we would have seen later today. And if you don't think that is cold in that part of the country, take this into account, received an email from a listener just a short time ago as I was getting ready to come out of the air. Steve from Baltimore said that he is going to be tuned in to this morning's equine forum from the chairlift, he is skiing in the berkshires in western Massachusetts, which is where I grew up. He sent me a picture of the temperature, the current temperature in great Barrington, Massachusetts, which again is in western Massachusetts. Minus one is what the temperature reads feels like -21. And Steve is going to brave the elements and get out there on the slopes. He's a tough guy. I don't know. I did a lot of skiing growing up in western Massachusetts. And I don't know if I ever skied with the temperatures were like that. Because forget about the actual wind chill, right? You start going down the mountain and that creates its own wind chill. As you're barreling down through the moguls or whatever. And I don't know, Steve, good luck, man. I appreciate the dedication on both accounts. Listening to the show on the chair lift and you being out there skiing in western mass. Chilly day. But that's why ended up canceling today. You can see why. You know, you do have the sunshine millions program down at Gulfstream, but those races certainly aren't what they once were. And if you don't believe me, all you have to do is rewind the clock back to 2012. That was the year that mucho macho man won the first of his two sunshine millions classics. Jockey Ramon Dominguez, you just heard his name in the open to the show. He was aboard for the winning ride that day. And Ramon is going to be aboard with you later in the show for our brand new segment we debuted last week, which was, by the way, hugely popular. And want to thank all of you who took time to call into the show last week during that segment at 10 o'clock eastern to talk with Hall of Famer Mike Smith. Today, you have the opportunity to be the host of the show and call in and ask your questions of Ramon Dominguez at ten eastern. So make sure you stay tuned for that. Do not miss it. If you don't want to call into the show, you can certainly email them to me. Mike, horse racing radio dot net. There were many of you that emailed your questions to me last week and I couldn't even get to them all. It's about a 15 to 17 minute segment at ten eastern. And we ran out of time. So many of you had questions for Mike and I'll try to do better this week with the ramone. We'll see if we can squeeze them all in, but you can send those questions to me now. The sooner you get them to me, I'll put you in order. And I'll ask them in the order that I get them in here this morning. But again, you can call into the show live and talk to Ramon at ten eastern with you be the host. Now back in 2012, when mucho macho man won the first of his two classics in the sunshine millions, that year, there were 6 sunshine millions races. And you're going to recall that was also the year that the event was renamed the Florida sunshine millions because the California breeders had opted out of those races that were being run in California. So the 6 races run only at Gulfstream offered total purses of $1.3 million in 2012. And the sunshine millions classic was worth 400,000. This afternoon, there are two. Sunshine millions races at Gulfstream. The sprint and the classic and both are worth just $75,000. So yeah, not quite what that event once was. But regardless, you'll still have good betting opportunities. I saw that Mike Welsh and we tweeted this out from our HR N account. I saw that Mike wells from the daily racing form had sent to post a short time ago that races at Gulfstream, keep in mind. It's been wet down there in the past several days and they've been off the turf. But races at Gulfstream are now on the turf today, good news, down there, all three scheduled grass races are on the turf at Gulfstream today. And of course, that card also includes the two sunshine millions main track stakes. You have Calcutta at Santa Anita, which is actually pretty decent. And you might even see a Derby contender emerge from those races..

"Mike. Yeah. I got a question in the early days. When I got in the horse racing at Canterbury park, and also, did you ever run in smile handicapped or only graded race what's the button time? You know I didn't ever ride in a smile handicap unless they renamed it because when I was their smile, it was actually still running. But man, I tell you what, Minnesota was one of my fondest memories of my career. I absolutely love going there. You know, the city really embraced us. It was racing for the first time there in Minnesota, and I'm telling you it was the track was just great. It was beautiful. The people were great and beautiful man. And I had a blast in Minnesota. Every time someone brings up Minnesota, I just smile, man. It was such a wonderful time. He forget about Mike Smith being in Minnesota. Not only me, man, look at some of the riders that were there the first few years. It was incredible. There was some extremely talented riders that went down there in the first few years that they opened up. I think sandy Holly was leaning right at their time or two as well. Wow. Wow. 888-966-4776, the number of the call and ask your question of Hall of Famer Mike Smith and Chris is on the line in Saratoga. Chris go ahead, your honor with Mike Smith. Thanks, Mike. A little corollary for Mike Smith. When he won the Travers with arrogate and broke the track record of general assemblies, a bunch of us on a backsheet screaming to him the broken. I don't know if remembered, but you have a clock in your head about thinking that maybe you had it broke the track record the way that horse rain that day and an ancillary that day with the holy bold day, which one the account of rank above the other. That's an interesting question. Great question. When you go, mild quarter, it's tough to tell, you know, if you broke on a track record record or not, but I can tell you this. I knew we went very fast early and we continue to go fast arrogate was like a train man. He just kept going faster and faster and faster and faster and faster. So when we hit the wire that day, I mean, he was running underneath that wire. So I knew he ran fast. I didn't by no means think I broke the track record, but I do remember everyone hollering coming back that you broke the track record. I just couldn't believe it. You know, he broke a record that Saratoga has been running for geese. I don't know how many years. You know, and he's got the fastest mile in court there, which is pretty incredible. Out of the two races, holy bulls with just so much more dramatic, you know, with concerned, of course with Tom durkin's call as well. This is a brilliant call with concern running at him like he did and that rabid in there. And being my first drivers, I'll always take that one and just like I said, I always have a special place in my heart for holy bull. He was just amazing. But the fastest horse that I've ever been on going on a quarter would be arrogate. All right, let's go to Nashville, Don is in Nashville. He has a question from Mike Smith, Don go ahead. Okay, hey, Mike, thank you very much for taking my call. I was at Churchill downs when you rode zenyatta and it was the best racing day of my life. My question is, how do you control your weight? You seem to be one that's always been trimming up and stayed in shape. But just solid workouts or your diets are both. Well, you know, being blessed with just being small to start with, I've never been a big guy or had a whole lot of trouble with it early on as I've gotten older. Of course it gets a little harder to do. But to be honest with you, I tack one 20 one 18 every now and then if it comes to me natural. And that's it. So I don't have to really necessarily die. I eat what I want. I don't eat a lot. I have one really good meal a day. And that's probably it. I might munch on something early on or just something like here and there, but and I train a lot. You know, as you know, I train it, at least 5 times a week. So I could easily go into the gym doing an hour of cardio, training with my personal trainer and then I get ready for the races. So I just naturally say about one 16 one 17 all the time. Pretty blessed. Yeah, absolutely. For those of us that aren't as fortunate, Mike, I can tell you that you are in a very good position, man that you don't have to worry about your weight. Trust me. If I had to check, if I had to go places where they were the attack a little lighter, it certainly would be harder to do, but here in California, like I said, I just started to 20s my norm unless it's less I can get, you know, get down naturally and 18 comes along every now and then. But as long as I can tag one 20 state one 17, that's pretty. I want to say easy to do, but it's pretty manageable. Down to the final two minutes or so of this segment where we have to get to a commercial break again, Ramon Dominguez is going to be here to take your questions next Saturday.

"To value a horse when purchased out of a public auction. The insured value would simply be the auction price. But ensuring home breads can be a little more involved. How so? Well, factors such as a stud fee, confirmation, pedigree, sales and race records of siblings, even popularity of the stallion, all come into play. How closely do you work with owners in determining a horse's value? Well, the owner has a pretty good idea of the horse's value. So generally, it's just a matter of agreeing to the request and having the policy issued.

"But they don't do that but they do say to people that do have hands on experience with horses or you can't be an official unless you have administrative offices of experience but kind of backwards if you people sitting up there monitoring the rate that knew exactly what a ride is doing on ours is you. Don't need a special with rule you need qualified officials. Bats what you need. But you know you get me going off on a tangent and you pumped me up listening to al and i know he's you know he's really he's a lawyer and he's certainly a qualified opinion absolutely and i guess the best i can say for his explanation of this is it was a starting point. It's a starting point to know where. And when it came to the gill getting involved with this day late dollar short. They should have been involved with Crop rules when it first was implemented in california when you have named riders and riders with a prestigious Performances names behind that behind their names. Like mike smith and said listen. This is what we're gonna do. You don't boycott races. That's for sure because that's that's a stand against source owners and trainers what you do. Is you let the officials. now we see. There's a role we're gonna try to buy buy it but we're going to use our to the best of our knowledge i riding experience and we're not going to go and let this will affect our performance. We're going to ride if you see. After the grace that we phrased on the authority of this rule find suspend or do whatever you want and we're going to appeal and appeal the commission the stewart's decision if they do find an suspend riders when it goes to the commission that the commission doesn't agree that you wrote your horse to the best of your ability to get the most forward position to accommodate the betting public and the horse owner. If they don't agree that's what you did then. You appeal their decision then at the guilt. Wanna get involved. They should say we're going to get involved and represent you guys legally in commonwealth court and you go to a court of law. You explain it to a judge what you did. I wrote to the best of my ability to get the most forward position with this source in order to accommodate the owner end betting public that the commission go and tell what their credentials are in making these rules and let them go and tell a judge that well you might have got the most forward position for the public newman. But he preached on the authority of this rule and he hit him seven times the stip instead of hitting them underhand hitting ten times but he did use it in a way that was humane and it was used in a way that god is worth the most earning capabilities that he could get his watch the most with division but go to court and let the commission and these people that make these explain to everybody what this rule beans and why you are penalizing for doing his best. Used to penalize docs because they didn't do their best. Now you're penalizing them. 'cause they're doing their best. And you know what if these rules get into place. And i told some riders. But you know i'm not affective or representative anymore just about there and ride to the best year ability never abuse horse but used a stick in a way that get yours smokes scored projection. That's what you do on horse back. He don't follow some blanket rule. It doesn't fit reset circumstances that are jock faced with writing ray source now. Does that explain my position. Back of course. And you know it's actually the way you phrase that the couch it that really fits a lot of the elements of the entire of the entire sport and and the industry and actually Kind of an interesting corollary. To the conversation we had with allen forman And really ties into what. I was trying to bring up with him. Which is the challenge of changing with the demands of the societal and cultural shifts. And i mean the when it comes to the stick it it's one of these perception things and you know. People people think that any encouragement with an implement it is abusing the animals and of course the stick. That's being used now. Compared to what snapper garrison used it. I mean it's crazy but but even if you even if you. I don't know maybe maybe i have ramon dominguez s ramon can we. Can we get a few thousand of these and mail them to these critics and let them see the foam core. Stick and and what what it is and realize. Oh this is just way to to kind of like problem along You're not abusing them. It's the challenge. The challenge continues to be how do educate and enlighten critics. But the problem is. I don't sense that the the people that that you're trying to appease any interest that they don't you know it's it's a group you know it's a group that's got minds made up a a and and plus the problem is they're also being influenced by you know The documentation some case. You know some cases. They're just running the same videos and using the same graphic material that that isn't a fair representation. All you gotta do is look at the numbers that allen presented yesterday. I mean you've had fatalities cut in half and half in ten years and it's a constant you know the constant effort now. Some people will say well. That's still too many and and that that that means that there's no. There's no good reason to do this. I i'll reiterate that the good reason to do this is because it employs and sustains a million people's lives and families. I mean there's there's a business attached ear. We're not doing this. The like you know like a sideshow. I don't feel that they you know. They might advertise against certain industries that they don't like but they don't say put them out of business. You don't like the tobacco industry but they still sell cigarettes. You know because his voice millions and millions of people that big industry it creates employment it creates revenue pat. They don't they tax you on you cigarettes but i don't see anybody other than advertised against it. Yeah that's fine. But nobody's banned it where they've shut these companies down. Don't shut horse racing down because you don't. You're not a fan and think it's inhumane you know what about more. What about alcoho- alcohol. You ll ruin my life. Yeah what about alcohol. Smoke is your brinkin. Maybe i didn't smoke. But i did a lot of franken i didn't. They didn't shut down. But the bud miller Fight i think it was mostly miller wasn't but it was miller right in nature. Shut that industry down. Maybe i wouldn't have been such an alcoholic and eight or nine years here. Good example smoking drinking and that you know when it comes to horse racing like you said it's it's an it's a viable thriving industry. You know i don't see him. Well people gamble on these horses. Why don't see him shutting down casinos people gambling casino shutting down. You gotta do one on one one on every street corner yet but You know the the thing about the really irks me. In the tent to change people's perception of the sport you are actually hurting the fans and the people who already embrace the sport. Let's not step on their toes and say well you don't count. We gotta change this betting with public opinion of the sport. The people you're never gonna get these people to be your fans.

"And Tony th the crop question that Ramon Dominguez developed I. Got I should get Ramon and He. And Sharon Gupta Saratoga. it's called. The three sixty gentle touch is is what it is, and it physically. It looks different. It's got that you mentioned that that hollow Foamy Tube and it's funny because. But it works yes. And Ramon of course. Ramon in his day. If he had come up in an era when they had nicknames the. slasher would have been I, mean he? He wielded a serious crop of the. Let's be frank Yes. Being called Chapman. Remind a? Bigger and heavier. The mine and I didn't use. Mine is like. He did. That is worthy of being adopted in in. Every racing jurisdiction. I don't know why they haven't allowed it to be adopted and you even on a trial basis by every rider. Writers oppose it well, then they better get back up with the the century because he better not post something like that. That type of stack this rule. What gets me? Is The jocks guilt steps in after the fact and that should have been. Friday they've been they've been. The problem is Tony they they've been and and we'll get johnny to discuss this. Maybe next week would be you know once we get this data the way at Belmont Day. I Wanna get Johnny and maybe Terry makes to discuss it because they've been at the table. They've been involved the frustration that they're expressing is that. It's essentially. Their seat at the table is is strictly an illusion that they're leading the part of the discussion, but they're not. They're not listening to anything. They say, and they're just going ahead and doing something that they think is going to placate. Let let let let's be honest. Nothing's GonNa placate these people. They'RE A. They got Tony if you're if. The when it comes to the guard kills representation. It's weak at best it used to be a stronger organization, and there were things that jockeys could do that gave the guilt strength and it and it was only the of the money that he's jockey contributes guild on a daily basis. At this particular time, the guild has no bargaining power because the bargaining chip was taken away when Reid is used to get together and say if you WANNA run today. And you want to have the participation of jockey colony. You won't do this or you won't do that, but now racetracks don't care if you're run or not. As long as the casinos open, they don't care jocks. Stand together and say we're not right. And that was the only bargaining chip that the jocks skills ever had were riding were not right. We wound up getting hundred dollar Jacksonville where we wound up getting ten percent of win and five percent per second and third. That was because we stood together. We we, we really band together as writers that you want to run this what we want and you had a bargaining chip, but really. Really those days are over and the the whole representations of jockeys. Is We at best, and the yield outlived its usefulness. Really, that's the best way I. Can put it and I tell me that I said if you, so, if you're so, you're yourself as well to managements and had is much strengthened management. As you think you have what riders you're selling yourself and your story to riders. Times I, even said it just BS in these writers. You know I have some more respect, but I don't have much respect because all you're doing, is you're you're selling an idea? The jockey that doesn't exist anymore and you don't have any clout of screens to sell the management or lacing commissions. Racing Organization doesn't. That's. Tony, I'M GONNA I listen I you you've over the years and then this goes all the way back to proximity of the Gert Manian fiasco. And you and and several other. Experienced lie detectors had had tried to warn everybody what was happening and they didn't WanNa. Listen and that that's a that's. A key. Point in in Guild you know in the travails of the guild that that has kind of put them in a in a in less a spot with less authority A. Explain and I'm going to send this link from a story at thoroughbred. A story that Ramone wrote last April about the three sixty gentle touch I think people will will appreciate the story And he, he explains the safety elements of Y. You guys have to carry a crop at all and eat a what portion of its use. You know beyond trying to get a horse to to give more other than that. How else it's used and I got two questions explain. That element about the use of of a stack and what it's doing, and how you utilize it beyond trying to exhort the horse to to give more effort and. At the same time part of that the story line. Well. Let's start with that and I've got a follow up actual okay. just yet understand how they see things. Their eyesight is a big part of their performance. When you have a stick in your hand, and it's down usually keeping it out of the eyesight of that horse, it's it's cops down. It's not caught up caught down. It's it's the proper face pointing to the ground when you want to get your horses attention, yeah, you could snap on the shoulder while proper pointed down, but a lot of times. What you do you cock your stick up? That's when you'll see. A jockey throws forward and comes up that. The He will be paying attention to the movement of your hands in that Dick now. Let's say horses get now. You're going to try to do is handle the horse with the rain and the mouth. What you know certain things they have. A ton of different bits out there, but it doesn't help you that there's a ton of different bits out there. That maybe would help. You Control that horse if he's getting out, reset man while you're riding the race in that bit back in the room, and it's not on that horse, so the US the reins as you hearing device well, guess what it's not totally working sources still getting out real bad throw by stick up cockpit and I'll wave it in front of his eyes. Wave it just the wave it, you know he'll sees a pop, or and that's the Nice thing about Ramon stick. It's It's about a six and a half seven inch proper. It's a tool and it's a high density foam. You can't help but to see it, so you wave that opera now. He's still getting out, but he's thinking twice about. It sees years looking at the sick. If he's like look in the sick, you wave it now. You WanNa. Get his attention. You reach down in your cracking on the shoulder with it, and the shoulder might make him if you need like crazy. On his great lead around attorneys on as long lead might make pop over to his left the top. Lead running strayer well now he comes threat. You signed to bear out again. You might be over on his shoulder.
