Gambling problem, call or text 805 two two 4700, Caesar's race book get bonuses right out of the gate. Okay, so the morning line favorite gets the job done and raised to at San Anita violent runner getting her second consecutive win, but we're going to head on over to Belmont park where they also have a short field going to post little faster runners than what we just saw at Santa and nita. This is an allowance optional claimer for three year olds and up that are non winners of three other than or in for a claiming price of $80,000. They're going to go 6 furlongs on the fast main track field of 5. By the way, number three fire sword races with blinkers off today. The morning line favorite was number four chateau and chateau is a horse who has been running against stakes caliber competition. Most of his recent career. And he's actually been favored against and beaten stakes caliber competition several times. He gets the lead every time he goes to the races, and then you just have to hold your breath once they get to about the quarter pole through the stretch on whether or not he's going to keep going. He was 6 to 5 on the morning line. At that price, I thought he was a horse that you could play against. He's probably going to get the lead. I think new bomb is going to at least try to press them a little bit from the outside. Number two, three two zone. It looks very logical coming off a two other than allowance win last time out. He destroyed that field. He looks like he's ascending, whereas chateau looks like he may be going the other direction. The problem is, the prices are not what the morning line is. Three two zone was 5 to two on the morning line. He's 6 to 5 right now. I'm not interested in 6 to 5. It's not that I'm never willing to take 6 to 5. There are 6 to 5 shots that have a there's a horse running tomorrow. In the poker at Belmont in mason, one of two that Chad Brown trains, who 6 to 5 on the morning line. If that horse is somehow 6 to 5, I'm betting. It's probably going to be about one to two or three to 5 in the race. But this one at 6 to 5 three two zone. Yeah, he looks really logical in the spot. It's hard to take 6 to 5 when you thought you might get two to one or 5 to two. And that's where I kind of am with three two zone. Three two zone moving up the class ladder. He's been in the money ten of 14 career starts. He has run in stakes competition already several times. In fact, they thought he was a state horse last year, and he was good enough to run second or third in some minor stakes at Belmont and pimlico, but worked his way back down into the allowance ranks, and I think it's helped them. And his first race for ray handel was that allowance race last time out and in my mind, it's far and away better than we had ever seen from him. He was going from a trainer in Mario Montoya who was zero for 26 for the year to ray handle whose winning 30% of his races at Belmont park not only having a great Belmont meat, but just having a great 2022 overall winning at a 23% clip. I say day in and day out, ray handel is one of these guys. That's just sneakily haven't, you know, he's never going to get the accolades that Chad Brown and Bill motten Todd pletcher and Christoph Clement had because he doesn't have quite the caliber of runners. He doesn't have quite the number of runners that they have, man, he and his staff are doing a fantastic job and it seems like anything they get their hands on runs better than it was running before. So good on ray handle, good on his team, and three two zone. I know this. If he runs the same type of race today against three other than competition, that he did against two other net competition, he's going to win, and he's going to be in a stake race for his next start because they don't really, they don't really write four other than competition allowance races. You know, this is it. You win this race and you either need to you need to find a stakes race to go in. Whether it's in New York or somewhere else. We're going to find out horses have made their way to the gate for this 8th race at Belmont park. Number one happy farm, former steak runner who's worked his way back into the claiming ranks going into the inside gate still running some good races now and then. Three two zone is in, fire sword. Here's chateau in those yellow and pink colors of Mike dub. Chateau figures to show a speed, new bomb will try to keep him company early going. John embryo with race 8.

"The winner was number four, mischievous Diane. She's a three year old chestnut Philly by practical joke out of the Lion heart mayor lioness lar owned by thoroughbreds and trained by ray handel. Boy, he is just winning left and right this minute at Belmont park. Dylan Davis with another win. He's also clicking at about a 20% clip, so good meat for Dylan Davis, great meat for ray handled thus far at Belmont park. Number four, mischievous Diane returning 6 33 ten and two 52nd number one Jane grey, big run off the layoff for her $3 and two 60, third was number three rubies and time at three ten fourth was number 5 Baba dollar exact to pay $10. The 50 cent try $18 37 cents. And the dollar super $79 and 20 cents. Okay, taking a look at what we've got coming up at Belmont park. Horses are on the track for the upcoming 8th race. It is the grade two, $400,000, Belmont gold cup, four year olds and up two miles on the turf at delmont park. We've got a field of 8 with no scratches or rider changes, and they're just parading in front of the stands right now. Before we get to this race, it was kind of listening to what Anthony's to be had to say and listening to the stretch run of nest winning the Ashland. Of course, last time a Philly beat the boys in the Belmont stakes was the Todd pletcher trainee rags to riches who did it in 2007 as Anthony mentioned. Todd pletcher has won three Belmont stakes, not only rags to riches, but palace malice in 2013. Tap it in 2017. So this is a race that he focuses on and obviously he has had great success in this race over the years. Interesting to note some of the records in the Belmont stakes. We all know, even if we weren't there, whether we weren't weren't racing fans back then or if we weren't alive back then or we all know the story of secretary back in 1973, not only winning by an unbelievable 31 lengths and of course the call of him moving like a tremendous machine and setting the track record of two minutes, 24 seconds flat. Do you know who the second and third most biggest winners of the Belmont are? I'm talking about lengths of victory because these are ones that you don't hear of very often and I'm going to give you a hint. It's way before secretary it did in 1973. Back in 1943, count fleet won by 25 lengths in 1920, the great man of war won by 20 links. And by the way, when he won, he was going a mile in three eighths. So we went a little bit of a shorter distance than secretariat did back in 73 and what they do now at a mile and a half. The Belmont stakes has not always been the distance of a mile and a half. In fact, this is the 5th different distance it has been in its history. It's been a myelin three 8, a mile and 5 eighths, a mile and an 8th. And a mile and a quarter, but for the most part, for most of our lifetimes, we've seen it at a mile and a half, and that's what we're going to see it once again tomorrow. By the way, most wins by a trainer, James Rowe, did it 8 times between 1883 and 1913, I'm going to guess none of our listeners have ever met James Rowe. Just a guess. I don't know. If you've met James Rowe, I don't know how I could dispute it. I would guess you're a little older than I am. Or James Rowe lived a long, long time. Okay, let's get back to some live racing. By the way, if you'd like to call into the show anytime you'd like to call in 888-966-4776, loved hearing Anthony stabile's opinions, I would love to hear your opinions on some of the big races today and tomorrow at Belmont park. We've got a big one coming up three minutes from now. It's this Belmont gold cup at the strange distance of two miles on the turf. It's just a distance. You basically never see in this country. It's not like you see it very often in big races in Europe either, but more so there than here. We've got a couple of European invaders in the field. In fact, two of the runners have been running exclusively or mainly in Europe of late. Number one loft, who is co favorite, in fact, second choice now at 5 to two for Marcel Visa Andre starved has been renting in Germany in some group races and actually won a group two race in Germany in his last start. I'm not really sure what that means. We all know how good the racing is in Great Britain and Ireland and France when you start seeing these group races in Germany and Italy, we respect them, but we don't know if they're quite the level of the group races in France or in Great Britain or in Ireland places like that. So I don't know what this means by loft being able to beat these kind of horses in Germany. He's been very good in group two and group three races of late in Germany. We'll see how that equates to running in a grade two race today at beautiful Belmont park. The other foreigner that's invading and this is something you don't normally see is number four out box who's 7 to two right now on the board. He is a 7 year old. You do not usually see horses of that age coming over to the states for the first time. He's another one that has been doing well in group competition. Now he was good enough to finish third in a group two race at newmarket in Great Britain two starts ago. He won a group one race in Qatar or Qatar, however you want to pronounce a QAT AR. I'm guessing that's not quite the level of the European graded races or even the American greater races. So I don't know what to expect from outbox other than outbox does bring his regular writer Holly Doyle in an outbox has something in his past performances. You don't normally see from these Euro invaders..

"Good start for Jane graves from that inside post position. Mischievous Diane is right there in between horses and Baba was on the outside. So the three of them right together here in the early going. I will away is running in fourth followed by ruby's in time and it's 5 lengths back to fight on Lucy. Mischievous Diane leads by a half length. Baba's on the outside in second. And then it is a big long shot of will away, who has up into third now with Jane grey down at the rail and in fourth, the quarter 22 and four. Ruby's in time runs in feb for the back, fight on Lucy. It is mischievous Diane, Baba in between horses, a will away on the outside and Justin behind is the favorite Jane grey and alongside is ruby's end time. They head for home now with mischievous Diane, room for Jane grey. She comes on through now on the outside as Baba a wheel away and ruby's in time, mischievous Diane, trying to hold off Jane grey. It is mischievous Diane in front, two and a half lengths. Jane grey all out in second. Mischievous Diane and Dylan, Davis. Jane grey was second. Ruby's in time, up for third. Unofficially four one three 5 in the 7th race at Belmont park final time for the 6 furlongs, one ten flat. Ray handel had mischievous Diane ready to roll off the layoffs. She took the lead and never looked back the favorite Jane grey looked like she had a perfect ride from junior alvarado tucked in saved ground in behind the speed, got clear sailing at the top of the stretch. She just simply couldn't catch mischievous Diane. She was way better than the rest of this field. The top two were well clear of the others, but mischievous Diane just kept on going 22 and four for the quarter 46 and one for the half, sped it up to 57 and four for the 5 furlong split and out the 6 furlongs in one ten flat four one three 5, the unofficial result in race 7 at Belmont park. We're going to take a break. When we come back, we're going to.

"Going 7 furlongs at that tough Saratoga meet. We haven't seen her since. I don't know what happened to Jane grey, obviously. It was something bad enough that she's been gone for almost two years, but they're betting her like she's going to win. She's 6 to 5 on the board. I wouldn't take 6 to 5, but she certainly a major player in here. And number four, mischievous Diane is never interesting one for trainer ray handel and jockey Dylan Davis. We haven't seen her since early December last year. It was her third career start, and she went wire to wire on a sloppy track. It's funny. She's raised three times once on a fast track once on a muddy track once on a sloppy track. And she ran well in all three. And she's a Philly that can show speed, but she doesn't need the lead to still run well. Ray handel is one of these trainers that is never going to be as respected as he should be. He doesn't have the big name horses. He doesn't run as much as some of the others. He's only winning 31% this meet at Belmont park in 23% overall for the year. This guy knows what he's doing and can get horses ready to run. Now, off extended layoffs, 14%. So not as high as his overall percentage, that's the question, Mark. Plus you got to take two to one. It's not like she's an 8 to one shot in here, but those are two Phillies who we have not seen in quite some time, that if they're ready to run, could be dangerous. They are arriving at the starting gate now for this 7th race. It's the only non steak race that we will be covering today. And after this race, we're going to bring on Anthony stabile to preview the other stakes on today's card as well as look at some of the races on tomorrow's card as well. Phillies and mayors have arrived at the starting gate for this 7th race at Belmont park. Once again, it's an a other than race going 6 furlongs on the fast main track, 6 to 5 favorite right now is the Bill Mott trainee owned by godolphin Jane grey. She's by into mischief out of the bernardini mayor crowned, ran super in her career debut better than what you see for most Bill Mott trainees and then something bad, obviously happened for her be gone since September of 2020. They have started the loading process for this 7th race at Belmont park this race actually begins their pick 5 today, races 7, 8, 9, ten and 11, fight on Lucy, ruby's in time, mischievous Diane, have gone in. Here's Baba in search of her 6th career win. A will away completes the line, John in brielle at Belmont with the call. And they're off. A.

"Course, podcast on major podcast platforms all over the world each and every week and really appreciate everybody tuning in. However, you're listening to trainer talk here on this Wednesday afternoon or maybe even a bit later listening on the podcast. Well, throughout the history of thoroughbred racing, there have been some incredibly successful partnerships among trainers who have taken private jobs for owners in the business and names like suge mcgahey and the FIPS family immediately come to mind. Neil Howard and his magical run with the Ferris family and lane then, and then you had Kira McLaughlin in the maktoum family and that relationship that worked so well for so long. Well, my guest on today's show isn't ready to count himself among those legendary pairings just yet. But he's also just getting started in September, he took over as private trainer for Katie rich farms in midway, Kentucky. He has saddled 6 winners from his first 26 starters. That's not a bad start. And at just 27 years old, the sky certainly appears to be the limit. As a matter of fact, how about this, in his first 8 months on the job, the native of Lexington, Kentucky, has made such a powerful impression that George Barnes, the president of Katie rich farms, took time to email me and had nothing but praise for their young trainer. Please join me in welcoming trainer Daniel leach to trainer talk presented by phasic tipton. Daniel appreciate the visit. Oh, I appreciate you guys calling me. Fun. You know, in his email, George made it a point to say that you've done a fantastic job and the team at Katie rich is convinced that you have a really bright future. It sounds like the perfect marriage. Oh, I mean, I love everybody out there and you know, they've given me an opportunity of a lifetime and you know stuff like this don't happen to people like me every day and when you get opportunity like this, you got to run with it and you've got to, I mean you got to make everything possible happen and if it does it's good, it's all good if not figure something else out but I just get in a really good opportunity and I love everybody over Katie rich and they're like family to me. When did you or what do you remember about the moment when you got the news that you were going to be promoted to head trainer? Well, it was kind of all in the work within probably four years, 5 years. So I started taking horses for Mark with the old trainer and I started shipping horses around for him like the Ohio to Virginia to just different little tracks that would needed to run and I'll run in for him, satellite and then bring him back and then I wanted to start doing more and more and so I got another job with ray handel down in Florida and I went down with him for a little bit and I wanted to stay with rape for a little bit longer, but they called me. They wanted me to come back and Mark was getting older and I just they wanted me to be around the barn more and help him ship and that. So I just decided to come back and it would just all going all good and you know it was you know I knew it was gonna happen but I just need to get my license so once I took the test and passed the test and actually got my license, I just figured it would be a matter of time before it happened. So you mentioned Mark and that's Mark Hubble who was the longtime trainer at Katie rich and he trained right up until last year. Is he training anything this year at all? No, he's not, he's actually retired. I think he's in he has also had the house in Colorado and breckenridge and I'm pretty sure he's out there right now. I've seen him every once in a while. He texted me after races every once in a while. He's like a father figure kind of and you know he helped me out a lot and I always loved Mark so he had some pretty good horses too for Katie rich. I think he saddled well let me see, I looked it up on echo base. It looks like 275 career winners more than $5.2 million in purses. So Mark Hubble was around some pretty good horses too. There was that one, I'm trying to think, was it your round? Was that the name of the Katie rich horse that he trained that was so good? Yeah, he had your round. He had missed Mary apples. He had misread delicious, which those are a part of the same family. Yeah, those are the better ones that he had, yeah. What things did you learn from Mark that, you know, that you're taking with you now is you're the head guy. Just a horseman, a lot of just a lot of horsemanship. Marquis, he always figured, you know, if the horse did want to do it, or just figuring out the horse and figure out what the horse liked. That's what I've learned a lot about that from Mark. How do you do that? You know, if they go, I mean, if they're going out, if they're going out and training and they're come back happy, I mean, they like it. And if they come back with their head and between their legs and they don't seem to give their refusing or if they're going on the track, spinning around and that they don't, you know, they don't like it, something's going on. You got to figure something else out, some to do something different with them. Is that something you can figure out relatively quickly? Or does it sometimes take a little time to do it? No, it's just all about the horse if it's whatever the horse likes to do. If the horse is training really good then keep on going with it, if not, then you gotta figure something else out. You know, you mentioned the name ray handled too and ray has been on this program, this trainer talk show. Tell me about working with ray and what you learned from him. Ray, he's also a really, really good horseman. And I've learned really just pick your spots with horses. He's.

"Curry. They've come back to run okay. Chad summers has champagne poetry. Remember Chad summers? Mind that biscuits, mind you know, mind your biscuits, fame. Well, he's got one in here champagne poetry, who just missed by a nose in the ruthless last time out and draws into post 9. Jonathan Thomas Barnes seems like it's heating up here as of late, and he's got Katie for August and stable, who was a nice maiden breaker at Gulfstream over the synthetic. Last time out Graham motion sends out Vergara, it's a full field of 12, but Vergara was a winner on turf and the tepid steaks last time out. Well I actually think it's kind of interesting in here if she takes the synthetic, but the bourbon head oaks is a doozy. And I think the ruby steaks is a bit of a doozy too, right? It's a big field. It's a pretty competitive field. It seems like a lot of horses are pretty well bunched. You have tawny port coming back who was I don't want to say was really impressive in the debut was good enough in the second star, which was the first time it gets winners and then got beat by 7 and a half in the risen star, but that was first time on dirt, first time graded stakes and lost epicenter who's pretty good. And there isn't star has been pretty touted as a big race. And so I got to think that tawny port is worth a look in here. Many Franco rides of time. I was talking to somebody the other day and they were saying that Manny's been pretty cold. I haven't been watching. I don't pay attention a ton to riders. I don't want people to get mad at me when I say that. But I'm always more interested in a cold rider than a hot rider just because the hot rider, you know, are they making great decisions all the time? Yeah, I'm sure they're I used to think that that was kind of malarkey, like in the sense that, you know, oh, so and so she's hitting on all soldiers now. I'm like, well, yeah, but he usually riding live horses and, you know, whatever. But I guess it's like anything, right? Like a baseball player. That's a cold streak hitting. You know, they start pressing, they start making bad decisions. They start thinking too much. And I got to think in jockeying as much as of course you want to be a thinking man's rider thinking women's rider. I would think that a lot of it is feel, even though you obviously have a plan. But that same as baseball, you have a plan going into the batter's box. You know, I have days Colin races where it's just not in sync, like everything's just kind of not right there. And it's a weird thing to have happen. And like for me, I remember I made a mistake at colonial, I guess it would have been two years ago. I just thought the horse on the inside was somebody else called the wrong horse, which I'm happy to say has been a rare thing in my career. I'm pretty good about that stuff. But I remember afterwards, what it did to me. And I've had it happen a few times since then, we're not where I called the wrong horse but where I maybe said the name wrong or called an 8 wrong name. What it does to you in the immediate aftermath is you start second guessing yourself. Because when you're calling a race, you're relying on your memorization. You don't want to be looking at the program. And so once you have the wrong name in your brain, you're kind of screwed because you're really not going back to the program. But just getting at with the rider thing, you know, if things are not going your way, and you start overthinking things, I think that's where you can make mistakes, and it's true with baseball store with an ounce is true with a lot of things in life. You know, when you're in something that is very fast paced, something that's quick requires a lot of feel and skill. You don't want to be cold. Going into something like that, for sure. Tis the bomb who was the winner of the Patagonia, which is of course the big local prep. Now that was his first start on synthetic. I didn't think I mean, it stolen base was right there with him. And obviously stolen base deserves some attention in this race as well. I didn't love that race as a whole. And so I'm kind of more intrigued to look around at some other horses. You know, rich strike was fourth behind those horses. They kind of got the jump on him. A little bit, maybe that's something to look at. I don't know. Royal spirit from the inside is a little bit interesting to me just because drawn on the rail and figures to be close up. Turfway is a course where if it's not if you're not going good on the inside, it just gets terrible to be on the inside and be on the lead. So that's where I think watching those early races is going to play important for people as they bet on these later ones. Random horse that was at Tampa a couple starts to go off to go go it was a nice turf winner at Tampa. But then they went out to San Anita for the Pasadena and got beat pretty good and now show up here. This seems like a very strange entry for opti Gogo. Ray handel has constitutional lawyer and who was we talked with ray a couple weeks ago. He'd kind of said they wanted to be on lead. They just couldn't quite keep up and then drop back, but he obviously still has some faith in this horse. Interesting that they show up in this race on the synthetic and then black adder is the first I guess of the recently shipped out baffert horses to run back, right? We haven't seen any of the other ones. I don't think yet. I mean, that's just all happened a few days ago, but real per se will train this one. Won the el Camino real Derby.

"Up, Hollis to the final furlong. He leads by a length over Greeley and Ben in second. Bob's edge is flying in the center of the racetrack, but he's still two and a half from the front, but he does have momentum. Hollis has the lead. Here's bob's edge trying to go last to first and look at him blue boy. Bob's edge two lane trist bob's edge. Wow. So bob's edge, Larry Jones, back in the graded stakes winner circle scores here from well off the pace he was last early on and he kind of was a little more of a stalker he type last year. Obviously it's smaller fields that sometimes tends to happen more. But it seems like this year, at least his last 5 starts, you know, he's been a little further back at least positionally and comes with that big run and this was another one where, you know, I think that that fact that they kind of stacked up up front. They went 21 and four while they were stacked up, so they were going quickly, but Hollis was covering ground out wide there. You know, three wide into the turn. You heard vik say accurately in the call, like Hollis looked like he wanted to try to get over and then all of a sudden Greeley and Ben slips through and then needing to know slips through and he needed snow was between horses. To me is one of the worst spots to be in when you're between horses and in this case there was one to his inside and two to his outside when he kind of steadied. But when you're between horses and you're a little behind him, I always think that's the worst place. Now, on the turn, I think it gets amplified 'cause on the turn is where everybody kind of wants to try to keep tucking in more, right? Down the back stretch sometimes you'll see geisel. Horses will be three across the track and then you look at the head on and there's two paths between each of them. So yes, there are three across the track, but they're not in the tight quarters that they are going into the turn. And I think it's a much more distressing position to be and when you're just behind and between horses or when you're just behind and you're down on the rail and the other horse is right you're outside. Like to me, it's so rare that horses a, come back through there and be don't end up kind of pulling themselves out of there or just backing up. It's just a tough spot to be in. But Luis ketones and bob's edgy, a big, big close, a telling tryst also came from off the pace, just kind of got outrun in the last 16th there, but ran a very good race. And really Ben was a part of that early mix and was still battle in a way. Just a super game horse greeting in Ben and then Hollis actually ended up fading back to fourth after the somewhat wide journey in my horse faded back to last. But yeah, very cool day at Oakland park, the whitmore I just thought was just kind of a neat event we'll say. Kudos to them for a fun day of racing. I watched a fair bit of Oklahoma, which I hadn't watched a ton this meet again. They kind of run as we're, you know, as we're going and then when we finish, they're still going by the time I get home, it's kind of over. Talk about a couple of the other stakes races going on from around the country over at aqueduct. The cicada stakes it was lady scarlet, Kendrick Carmouche rallying from off the pace to get the win. This was the race I talked about, you know, it looked like there was a fair bit of early speed and then something kind of had to give and lady milagro and maldon, who both showed a lot of speed in previous starts all at mansion, of course, only had. The one start for ray handel, but they ended up going out and kind of going after it a little bit, 22 flat 45 and three, and kinder Carmouche kept lady scarlet just out in the clear, you know, 5 wide and rolled by him and really poured it on down the stretch to score nicely for Mike maker. Ray handel's horse should hold on nicely for second. They were way clearer really, really super strung out field. And, you know, I was going to say two year olds, but they're not. They're three year olds and at this point, but lightly a lightly raced group of three year olds how about that. But Kendrick good to see him get a nice win. I feel like we haven't had kit. We had Kendrick on once and it's been, it's been a few years. Maybe he maybe Kendrick's a guy to add to the guest list here. Down at beautiful Gulfstream park in Florida. I was trying to think if I'm going to be able to get down there once more 'cause I'm going down to the pop for the Gabe versus Pete match race, which is only two weeks from today. April the fourth, I believe it is. But it's going to be on a Monday Tuesday, so no Gulfstream running. We do have a Sunday off the week before Kentucky Derby at Tampa. So I thought maybe I'll go down there, but then I'm going to drive home or back to Oregon to grant's pass like the next week. So do I really want to drive four hours each way to Miami after I did it three weeks before, just to then drive across country? I think that feels like that feels like a lot on the old car. So it might not get down to GP again, but I had a nice day there before Christmas, and then I got COVID. I'm blaming, I'm blaming Miami for giving me COVID back before Christmas because when I was down there, I came back at like two or three days later. Boom. And they said that the only crime was a faster transmitter. So I'm blaming Pete and the team at Gulfstream. Actually Mayo, you were my tour guide there, probably you. No, Ashley's great. Love Ashley. The talk also in part, the Hutchinson stakes, which a lot of people kind of made no to this. And I kind of agreed, you know how, you know, races do this, right? Race is ebb and flow. In terms of their history, their importance and what have you. And the hutcheson was kind of erased that, you know, this used to be a grade two race for a lot of years. And then it became a grade three and now it's listed. And I mean, you go back and look at some of the horses that want it. Okay, Gladiator kings, but he's a nice little sprinter. But the funny bone, captain candyman can, wildcat red,.

"Subsequently, he's running some major races and he's made $700,000, like he's, you know, it's kind of earned that spot. I think that's I think I'm thinking of the right horse. I could be wrong, but I'm almost positive at three years. But yeah, I think a fun addition to this race and like I said, there's a little wrinkle because we've seen a lot of these horses running against each other. Now the whitmore stakes, which is a grade three event goes off a couple races before the Essex, there's certainly a little bit of overlap, but there's a lot of like allowance optional claimer types that are kind of trying to jump up and see if they belong in this space. Hollis to the outside figures at least on the morning line this year, your favorite at three to one. I know he's not bob's edges. I'm sorry because bob's edge be Hal's two starts back house came back nicely last time at an optional lady, but hollows to me is the, I guess, the proven class of the field, but if you look at it really, I mean, he's just he's won a lot of optional 80 type races. So he just seems to have a bigger name because he beat Nashville a couple starts ago. And so, you know, whether or not he's proven at this level, I guess he is kind of unproven still. But bob's edge, who is the favorite, you know, won the king cotton last time out. And has run it a few other Oklahoma type stakes, but same thing. This is a race filled with a lot of optional 80 horses. I mean, if you go through the PPE, you see that condition a lot. And then we have really in bed for Carl broberg, who's been on this insane winning streak this horse. He's won 14 of his last 18. He lost four back at the Thanksgiving at fairgrounds behind just my, then there's not really a whole lot of, you know, losing to just might ain't the worst thing in the world, but back up to try. In fact, I think for the first time, try great at stakes competition and hot horse and good form, going to a track he's only run once happen. He ran pretty darn good last time, but he was one to two. He's supposed to win that race and he did. So I'm real curious to see if Hollis can kind of turn things around just because he's been so impressive at that lower level, but making that jump is a different thing. There's kind of a hot horse in here as well to lane tryst for a cheri devoe who got off to a pretty good start and one nicely in his second career start. They tried the woody Stevens. He didn't run horrendously. I mean his beat ten links, but Jackie's warrior drained the clock. I mean, that's deep waters. And then one is non two at Churchill became right back in one option of 40 here fairgrounds by a lot and it just seemed like that move from three to four like he took a bit of a step forward there and I think in a little bit of a price kind of belongs in the spot, you know, looking to be a little contrarian here where from Hollywood because I think Hollis and bob's Edgar are going to take a lot of money. I know they're 5 to two and three to one, but it seems like they would take a fair bit of money. The optics has me really interested in knee deep in snow, the number four horse for Mike maker, who, as I said recently, has not been, you know, I guess he just has not been the dominating Mike maker that we thought, but I mean, his percentages aren't down that much. It just seems, you know, 16%, but I always thought of him as like a 2022% guy and he's 16% for last year and a half, but it seems like every meat I look at, he's like, you know, 13, 15%, which, you know, I don't know, it just seems like the horses aren't quite where they were in years past. But this is kind of a classic mic maker thing, right? Claimed somewhat older horse, the source was 5, was running in turf sprints, moved into the dirt, ran okay first time for them. We got beat by mucho, who's very, very good. In a non conditional allowance at Oklahoma, but then one optional 62 5, they tried some stakes, got beat by Greeley and Ben and others, but was in the hunt. And I think just kind of if he could take that one more step forward an interesting horse there at Oklahoma park. One of the race wanted to touch on before we leave you for the weekend, and as I said, that they never drew the Gulf Stream park race. I wanted to look at the hutcheson before before I go, but it's not been drawn and showtime needs to be posted here shortly. But the cicada, I think, is that how it's pronounced cicada like those bugs? Cicada steaks at aqueduct. Like I said, aqueducts got a pretty good little Saturday card kind of intrigued by that. But three year old Philly steak at 6 furlongs, so sprint for the recently turned, I guess they're not newly turned. Anymore. We're almost a third of the way through a quarter of the way through the year. They're no longer newly turned. But sweet solari for a horacio de Paz and Trevor McCarthy, of course, been kind of fun to watch Trevor have a big winter there in aqueduct, and this one had a pretty nice maiden breaking effort. And it's one of those races where you're getting a lot of horses who have broke the maiden kind of seeing if they belong in stakes combination, ray handel has monsoon, who was a good maid breaker restricted against or one again restricted company at Saratoga last year as a two year old, but we have not seen that horse back. So she comes back. So you're getting a number of those maidens kind of coming out of, you're trying to match up who had the better maiden race. But there are a couple who have proven against winners, lady Scarlett from Mike maker, has won against winners, lady milagro for Carlos Martin has won against winters, winters. It's the end of my week. I get a break. I just want to guess winners twice, but is a total need to lead type and as is the case with a lot of younger horse races like there's just a ton of speed in here. I mean, almost everybody has been on the lead early in their races or right off of it. And so I just don't know where the plot's not out yet for optics. I'm really curious to see because I don't know where and who is going to prove that they can come from off it. Now, lady scarlet did come from just off it. She was basically part of a three way duel though. She just happened to be third at the first call. She's only neck behind. So I don't necessarily consider that coming from off the pace. And something is going to have to give somebody is going to have to be able to come from office. Now, exalt the Chad Brown horse did come from a length off, I guess. So maybe she's the one to move forward and come off that. But something has to give and I look forward to seeing what it is. We will wrap up this edition of the program appreciate you guys tuning in all week long, big thanks to Joe Christopher, big thanks to Brian net out for joining us this week. As I said next week we'll have two guests plus a roundtable with Gary palmisano and Frank mcgoey. So technically we'll have four guests, but it'll be over three days. We'll recap all the weekend action that comes up on Monday and look forward to doing that. Everybody have a great rest of your Thursday. We'll see you back on Monday..

"Right, a good Thursday morning the welcome in to the Jason beam horse racing podcast brought to you by twin spires happy to be with you here as we close out a week of shows this week went by so fast. Marty McGee. Ray handel. David Harrison NHC champ got to join us today a little Thursday guest appearance. I will tell you that David and I went a little longer than our normal interview too, which so, 'cause I really thought about this. I mean, I could sit and talk about this Tampa Bay Saturday card for a good 40 minutes. Like I could do a regular Thursday preview show. But I think I'm going to stick with the plan and have David come on. I'm going to talk about the Tampa card. I'm going to give some initial opinions. And I'll try not to do the obvious ones just because I feel like I've seen a few of these horses. So I kind of want to just give you my opinion as the race caller, which isn't always the best for my handicapping standpoint because we're we miss so much during the race. I've explained that many times, but there are some intriguing entries throughout the day. It starts out there's a couple little handicap type races and a claim or an $8000 cleaver and stuff. So it's a pretty basic card early on, and then we start getting some big names. What I thought was really interesting. Is a couple of the entrance in the 5th and 6th races are like eye opening types, including command performance who was second behind Jack Christopher in the champagne. Fourth in the breeders cup juvenile only beaten 5 links. Well, he's showing up in a maiden race. Again, and on brisnet, he's a prime power one 44, the next closest is one 16. You do not see a lot of 28 point gaps on the prime power. You know, I mean, I guess, you know, maybe like a horse just has a really good debut and nobody else has numbers, but you know, most of these other ones have numbers. You got a $1 million Chad first or in the 6th race for where did it go? There we go. Gina romantic have Peter brand. They've been debuting like we're talking with Marty. They've been debuting a lot of horses over here. Iraq can ride that one. One of the horses they debuted on Sam Davis day ended up entering into the Tampa Bay Derby, and that is money supply who drew post 1112 horses set to go in the grade two $400,000 lamb home south Tampa Bay Derby. Mile and a 16th, the same distance as the CMF Davis. And classic causeway, drew post four, morning line will be out some time today. I think you can programs usually go final one 30 eastern on. Thursday, four Saturday. If I was a guessing man and technically I am. I would venture that classic causeway is 7 to 5 or 8 to 5 on the line. Maybe 8 to 5 just because of the bigger field, there's a full field of 12. And I think that similar to the Sam Davis, you can make a pretty honest case for almost everybody in there. Classic causeways are deserving favorite. He should be favored. Golden glider was one I kind of liked in the Sam Davis. He was 8 to one that day. You know, he's going to be maybe a little higher than that this time. Major general is going to take some money undefeated Todd pletcher horse. We haven't seen since the Iroquois, so he's making that big step from two to three. Money supply I mentioned now he won on Sam Davis day. It was in a sprint. He came from way back. And I remember being rather surprised with what a big figure that got. Got a 92 brisnet figure, a 91 buyer figure. And I just thought that was a lot. Now it's a sprint. So this is, again, a way different game. My guess is, is that they're, oh, that's a clear of a choice. I thought that was a Peter brand horse. Sorry, mister. Man, I think they just, they saw the big number, Porsche ran a Tampa good. Let's take a shot. You know, we're late, obviously in kind of getting into the Derby trail of sorts, but you know, if he jumps up and runs good, you still got time to run one more if you want, if you need points, if you run second or third or something like that. And if he wins, hell, you can take the ultimate crack and try to win the Derby career start number three. Off a maiden win, and a Tampa Bay Derby win. And so I do think he's going to take some money though, just based off the big figures. And the connections. Jose Ortiz is in to ride. Graham motion has Belgrade, who's undefeated, who I was not that impressed with his last start here. Tampa. Now he did not have a good start. It was a 7 furlong race, and so I didn't really see the bad start because we have those trees in the way. But it was a noticeably not great start. Made a bit of a move on the far turn and had to really work to beat a horse named Morgan point. I just think that this horse has too much moving forward to do. They paid a lot of money, the horse could have some ability. I just think it's asking a bit much in this spot. Ship stational coming out of a second place finish in the Sam F Davis. It's a great story, Edward Barker, a longtime horseman, smaller barn in New York based, sent a couple of Tampa, ran a really good second kind of burst out of the pack. What is my question about this race, at least right now, is who is going to go with classic causeway? Because somebody's going to have to. Little Vic, who went with him last time. You could argue, I mean, he went with him. Little Vic, they didn't really let him go on with it. But a little Vic had like sprint speed. I mean, he had really fast sprint speed, and they went an okay clip in the Sam Davis 22 and three 46 and three. But to me, classic causeway looked very comfortable doing that. You know, you could maybe make an argument that trademark will try to go, especially from drawn and post two. He was in the Sam Davis, didn't get out amazingly and faded back through the pack pretty fast. You look at his two previous starts before that, a Churchill, wired a wire both of them. So with the inside draw for trademark, I have to think they want to go. I also wonder if classic causeway wants to stock. You know, based on his past performances, his two wins have been pretty much on the lead. He ran third in that breeder's maturity after being on the lead, got passed by rattle and roll, and then ran decently when stocking in the Kentucky jockey club. So, but I just, I wonder if I know you don't want to be teaching horses lessons in 50 point Derby preps, you want to get points and now he's a horse is already accumulated a few points, so he's a second or third for him, puts him probably in the show, right? And so maybe they take a chance with just getting him to sit second off of trademark if that's who elects to go. I mean, I won't be surprised if somebody tore the outside. Tries to send ship stational had gone gay to wire two starts back in the slop. Now, the slop. The weather is going to be something to watch on Saturday here. Because for a week straight now, ever since Saturday.

"Jump in too. Yeah. So last thing, kind of a weird spot. We're taping this interview before the city of brotherly love steaks at parks that you're running in on Tuesday. It's going to air after that though, so should we just talk about how your horse probably won easily? Oh man, I wish you won't believe what happened to the they had a herpes. I heard about that. But I thought that was getting kind of solved or something. Well, the horse, he tested positive for the respiratory one. It wasn't the neurological neurologic, it's the respiratory lung but we're still putting them under quarantine. It's going to be a week and the whole reason we're running in this race was to try and get back kind of on the Derby trail potentially. Prescribe some will probably going to run I nominated them for a stake at Laurel on the 19th. Jeff ruby and the bluegrass. So all those races are kind of up in the air right now. We're just trying to figure out what's best for everybody. So kind of regroup and see what we can do, but he's a nice call. So I'm excited about it. That was a kind of a dead performance the other day, but I just know he's a better horse. Ray handle, joining us here on the program. You find ray on Twitter at handle racing. I really appreciate the catch up best of luck to you throughout the rest of the spring. Thanks brother. I appreciate you having me on. Thank you so much. We'll be right back after a short time out of today's horse racing podcast brought to you by to inspires. This is the Jason beam horse racing podcast brought to you by twins fires. All right, big thanks to ray handel for joining us. Appreciate the conversation in the time ray. Best of luck to him at the big a it's ray ray at the big a see, I would totally use that in a race he won. But I appreciate his time, but tomorrow, David Harrison gonna join us the NHC champ from this year. Looking forward to hearing the story of David's big tournament win and more. So we'll do that a little Thursday interview. Like I said, we had my fault. The way I did it and so, but it kind of works out good this week is with Tampa Bay Derby week. I'm a little extra busy and kind of makes it easier for me I guess to have the extra interview. And like I said, we don't get entries for Tampa Bay Derby to later. I talked to Marty McGee texted me on Tuesday morning, I guess it was saying it looks like now charge it is not going to go into the Tampa Bay Derby. And I told him, I said, well, Marty, we'll find out tomorrow. And I said to be fair, you did caveat it. You said you heard he was going to, but you might see him in the entries, and I said, you know, we didn't commit Marty. We're not on the line. You know, it's Todd star that's on the line. So we'll look forward to seeing who is going to be joining classic causeway ship station and others in our big race also the hillsborough now. I haven't wanted to mention this. Because I have a big strong belief that you never mentioned the weather till it's like three days or less in. But since the Saturday March 12th, like showed up on the iPhone app, like 5 days ago, there's been a rain cloud over it. And as I sit here today, I went down to honeymoon beach this morning at like 10 a.m. 75° on the beach for two hours. It was amazing. It's supposed to be amazing Wednesday, but start raining a little bit Thursday, 50% chance Friday 90% chance. On Saturday. So I don't want to put that out there, but as a responsible broadcaster and host, I feel like we need to at least keep an eye on it. Till Wednesday or Thursday because like I said, weather changes and in my experience in Florida weather changes fast. So we will see. It's supposed to be 74 for the high Saturday. And then the lowest 37 that night. So there must be a storm coming through or a cold front or something, but it's also supposed to be windy, so. But we've crossed our fingers because, you know, the hillsborough and some of these other races are, you know, Florida oakes, graded stakes events on the grass, and we have such great grass at Tampa. It's beautiful. Looks like a fair way. So hopefully the weather cooperates and we'll have a good day for Saturday. But we'll talk about that on tomorrow's show along with welcoming and David Harrison. Big thanks to ray handel, big thanks to you guys for joining us and we'll see you back tomorrow..

"I am Jason beam, your host, of this here show. I appreciate you guys tuning in as always, looking forward to our guests who I didn't tease yesterday, did I? I don't think I did. Ray handel can join us, trainer in New York, have any banner aqueduct meet, he's looking at 12 or 13 wins. I think already and 5th in the standings from like 46 starts doing good. Got some good horses running in the Gotham. Okay, didn't win, but you know, was in it. And we'll talk with this funny thing when he picked up. He said, just so you know, I got my two year old with me sitting here. I said, okay. He's like, so if there's any problem with noise, just like, eh, come on. It's funny because, you know, first of all, I'm like, you know, you're doing me the favor. You're coming on my show, and do you get some publicity out of it? Sure. I guess, but you're doing me the favor you're doing our audience favored by joining us. If there's a gentle cry or a baby's noise or a dog barking, so be it, we'll deal with it, right? You guys aren't mad. If anything, I always feel like little stuff like that, like it adds a sense of realness to the interview. Just because, you know, our sight of a lot of people within the game, maybe people at higher levels, but I think just everybody, really, you know, we see what we see on the track feed or an interviews or on social media that they put up. And you know, it's generally, I don't want to say a facade, but it's, you know, I don't think a lot of people put out their true selves on those platforms. And to me, when I'm interviewing someone, you know, we have, I usually tell people we shoot for a 20 minute interview, and sometimes we go longer, and other times we go shorter. But do we have time to really get into the super depths of a person, probably not. But I do like to shoot for, you know, those occasional moments of realness and, you know, things that aren't, I guess, just expected during an interview. And I don't know that you could just, especially the first time you interview someone, it's always hard to kind of try to get a little beyond that. 'cause you know, people are comfortable sharing what they're sharing. I'm certainly, you know, I try to, in anything I do, I try to be an open book, in part reasons because for selfish reasons, like I just, to me, it feels beneficial in rewarding to be heard and to also just to communicate. Like I wrote a blog about my weight loss the other day and kind of about self esteem and a lot of things tied into that. And you know, for me, I feel better when I purge on to the page, and there's sometimes I write stuff like that where nobody reads it, this one I share, but you know, I think it's I think it's good to be open and honest. And I find that for me, it also connects me with people, you know, I talk about life stuff on here. And I often hear from you guys on Twitter or email and you say, oh, you know, I've dealt with that. Oh, I appreciate you sharing that. You know, we're all going through something. At pretty much all time. You know, whether the severities obviously, you know, less or more, I saw someone on Twitter who I've known for years, they were tweeting about, you know, they have a parent who's ill and their caretaking. You know, brought me back to what I was doing that with my dad and, you know, it's that shared human experience and I know that this is a horse racing podcast and so I try not to take myself or our content too seriously. But I also realized that there is a little bit more going on with the path of communication and that we have these connections that we make through communicating and podcast as a form of that. And you know, I always say that I'm thrilled when I get to be a part of someone's commute. Just a little sliver of their day. If they laugh, or if they find something insightful or if they just are distracted from whatever they're dealing with, like to me, that's like such a blessing to get to do that if someone's live. And, you know, when I get messages from listeners, it's that same way coming back. You know, it's a blessing for me to hear there was a connection and or that you'd listen to the show or that you just like horse racing and wanted to talk about it or had a question. Like what a great thing to get questions from people who are new to the game. I remember during the pandemic, I would get those emails all the time. Like, oh, you know, I just discovered horse racing and because we were the only thing going other than South Korean baseball. What an honor to get those kind of messages. So as I mentioned, so ray handel is going to join us with his child. That's where you won't hear from his child. I think there's like one or two little little blips, but not too much. I remember we had Nancy holt to sonic a couple of weeks ago. She's like, just so you know, my dog is here. And I was like, Nancy, your dog is fine. I love when dogs make guest appearances on the show. But we'll talk with ray about his very successful winter at aqueduct about his barn. You know, he's 7 I think 7 or 8 years in now to his training career and he's kind of been growing the business and get better horses and so it's exciting to watch that path. I've said all along doing the show that, you know, now going into 6 years of doing it. We've now been following some of our guests that have come on multiple times for many years and you know, it's kind of cool to get to follow along their journey. All of our interviews are archived and you can find the last time we had Raya, which I think was I want to say June of 2019. The only reason being because I remember I was staying at a friend's house. So it would have been right around Haskell of 2019 because I stayed in a hotel like an extended stay for most of my trip at Monmouth, but the week I was back at the Haskell I stayed at a friend's house. And I remember interviewing ray at that friend's house. So now I want to Google and see if maybe I was maybe it was somebody else that I was thinking of. Maybe it was cruise kit sweezy. Another young handsome trainer, but looking forward to talking to ray handle here in a few moments. I mentioned yesterday there was a little Twitter thread that I wanted to share and that I really enjoyed..

"Watch. Go follow David. Great guy, big fan. He's made glider 8 to one. He made favoritism toward the outside with Morello out in post 9 three to one. You have 7 O two for dean's list and Manny Franco and a four to one Rockefeller toward the outside Morello obviously has been very, very impressive in a couple of starts. First time stretching out to a mile, which aqueduct on the outer track is just the one turn, right? Boy, I hope I ride on that before. It's kind of funny that they still at this point are only running a mile. Prep. It feels like it should be longer, but I guess they didn't even run a mile 16th at aqueduct. I don't think they do. So maybe it's just kind of stuck that way. But Morello just been super impressive in those first couple of starts raided in both of them nicely set off. Kind of had, you know, nice in behind trips, but covered a lot of ground last time in the week feel was just much the best. And life is great, not life is good, but life is great, also in here with second that day. But I wanted to mention glider just because we saw this horse at Tampa and was beaten by Emanuel who, as I said earlier in the fountain of youth, I'm really high on, but this was the one we can wear, I thought Tampa's course was somewhat biased. It seemed like the rail was very dead. And horses would start making moves they jumped out of the rail and they'd stop making moves. And I saw a lot of that that weekend renter brothers and I remember talking about it during the car and it's just like, God, horses that look like they're going to rally up the rail and win are just kind of stopping. And glider was chasing inside and Emmanuel stayed out in the three path because I think Emmanuel's writer realized that I think it was Pablo Morales who was writing. Realized that you don't want to be down inside. And so the fact that this one stayed down there lost ground Emanuel late, but still ran pretty good. And interestingly enough, Antonio Gallardo was going to go up and ride for Mark Cassie. In this race, obviously, Antonio based down here at Tampa and I don't know, I'm really excited to see what this horse could do because I thought that was first of all, like I said, I'm banking that emmanuelle is very good. And so that also makes me kind of think that maybe glider is pretty good, but this is a this is a fun prep honestly for you. I feel like the New York prep sometimes feel like they're a little bit short. At least with interest from me just because the aqueduct so many of the top guys are down at Gulfstream. But with Rockefeller coming out here for baffert, Morello, who's been sensational, I mean, even horses like bull journey for Bill Mott, you know, second in the Gander after kind of opening up last time out. I mean, there's just a lot of interesting horses in this race and a lot of upside dean's list perfect two for two for pletcher down at Gulfstream. He's obviously got, you know, he's going to want to spread out his hand a little bit. Ray handel has from another mother too, who is a nice winner last time out against maidens, but handles on fire in aqueduct this meet. 14 for 63, 22%, go ray. I want to say we had rayon 2019. I think I was at Monmouth when we had him on. I mentioned earlier radio days who was coming out of that forward Gallup Gulf Stream, and she is showing up here in the busher, which also a one turn mile race, which the four were gal was as well. And she kind of just got away not great. There's no comment on it. She was just far back in a race where 7 furlongs they were going and honest clip, but the horse up front was just cruising. And she wasn't able to run that one down, but she took a serious run at her. I think this is actually a really good horse. In radio days. And she gets back to New York too. I mean, Gulf Stream is always a little bit peculiar, but she ran perfectly fine. She just didn't catch a loose on the lead horse. Dylan Davis went down there to ride that race. I think he's obviously very high on the horse. They spent a ton of money for radio days. And so it makes sense that the horse would be talented and obviously comes from very, very good connections. Venti Valentine, who was so good behind nest in that demoiselle stakes nest obviously came back to win at Tampa a couple of weeks ago in I should know the race I called the damn thing. What is it called? Holy crap. The sun coast. Boy, don't let my bosses hear that I forgot the name of the sun coast stakes. But validate that race. The sun goes in a top top field. Certainly I don't think some of the talent that venti Valentine would is going to see here. So I don't know how much you like move nest up off that wind. I thought it was very workman like. And we haven't seen venti Valentine. We're still in that phase where, for some of these horses, we're seeing them for the first time as three year olds. Sterling silver was one of the New York prince I was mentioning earlier on in the show as well. I mean, very humble beginnings of $13,000 purchase. One made in special weight state bread and then $100,000 the Franklin square for Trevor McCarthy and Trevor and time albertrani, going to try their luck in the bush here against the open company here. So that is just a quick little preview of so much that's going on. Like I said, we had to skip around a little bit because there's just, there's just too much. I didn't have a chance to look at all of it to be Frank. And we'll certainly try our best to recap as much of it as we can on Monday. That will most likely drip into Tuesday, but big weekends. This is such a great time of the year for, you know, all the Derby lead up oaks lead up like that stuff's all fun, but what comes along with those is good cards and good racing and fountain of youth. I was thinking back my favorite fountain of youth is 2004, the saint Valentine's Day massacre, it was dubbed, which is probably a little bit of an extreme name for a horse race. But it was on Valentine's Day and read the footnotes and 2nd of June, man. They hooked up real early, not early, but early in the drive and they just went ahead and had the whole way down the lane and it was real memorable stretch call. There used to be video of it on YouTube and I looked around and the old video that used to be up there was no longer up there and so you can't seem to. You can't seem to find it so if you can find it out there if you know where to watch the 2004 found of youth watch it because it is a awesome race. But real big thank you to you guys for tuning in this week as always you guys are just the best so appreciate you guys listening to our show. Big thanks to Darren Rogers yesterday Danny Gibson who joined us back on Tuesday. We will have some new guests next week, maybe old guests. I haven't done any booking yet..

"ray handel" Discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast

"A ride it was for constitution lawyer and for Dylan Davis that was back on January 2nd. At aqueduct, John embryo had the call. Cruise to an easy three and a half length win over a muddy surface that day. It was a mile and an 8th, the same distances today's withers. Constitution lawyer is trained by ray handel, who was born in Sacramento, California, grew up in Kingston, Jamaica, but from the age of ten, he knew. This is all he ever wanted to do was be a horse trainer, and now he is in a position with a very talented three year old starting on the Derby trail that could make his dreams come true. We'll see. This interview is presented by the way by our friends at jellyfish water and ray handles with me now here on HR N ray good morning. Hey, good morning man. Thanks for having me on. Yeah, happy to talk with you again. And look, constitutional lawyer, he is talented. He has improved with every career start. Tell me what you've seen from him from even from a very young age. Well, we bought him at keeneland September sale, and he was very raw like talent, I thought he was kind of going through a little bit of a growing spurt. His high Dan was kind of it was higher than the front end, and he just kind of looked a little awkward. But we loved his pedigree. He had all the right points. You want to see what the racehorse is really high forward hip, big gasket, great angle behind it and a good shoulder on him. And I thought, you know, being he's a may full, maybe we take a shot here. We knew he was going to be expensive. He was obviously by constitution and who was bit hot for a while now. So we stretched to our max budget for and we were able to get him. I believe actually Steve asks, it was under better on the horse. And you know, just early on, even when they were breaking in with the farm, we kind of knew he was going to be all right. Nick Kessler at Sanders down in Ocala was breaking him and saying how nice he was, but he was always just a little bit mentally kind of green. He took he took a bit of time kind of coming around mentally even though he kind of had those physical attributes that we always really like. So he actually came in about a month or two later than all of my other babies and you know what they came in. He showed us a lot of time in the morning, but he was always the thing with him was always at the mental game. And that's what I've noticed coming has he's been racing and getting the experience mentally he's really coming around and really putting it together. And I'd say especially since that last race, he's really kind of I think winning just he figured out what his job was and the proverbial light came on. And he's just been very forward, very plugging up my rider, very willing to do whatever we want. And yeah, no, I'm excited. I think he's got a big shot today. As a kid growing up in Kingston, Jamaica, wanting to be a horse trader. Did you ever think ray that one day you would be outbidding the sports all time leading trainer on a young horse at a yearling sale? I've just been dreaming this dream for so long. It's wild that every time I will raise it, I feel like it's a big accomplishment. So I mean, you can imagine doing some of the things that we're doing and we're not going to let anybody stop us. Do you already have a little bit of Derby fever? You know, I've done I've gone down this path with some horses before. I've actually got three different Derby horses I've sat on the horse in The Kentucky Derby when I worked for Tony tetra and yeah. You know, you know, you just got to keep a level head and not get too excited because these horses are just they're like cherries that can just go bad overnight and strawberries. It can go bad overnight. So just trying to keep a level head and go day to day. But yeah, you know, it's exciting. It's exciting to have a horse that's at least as a talent that might have a shot so you make his way there. Because I tell you one thing about Dolores, he's a star, and that's the hardest part, I think, with these having the talents one thing about having a stay or a horse that can go a true two turns is hard to come by these days. Who were the three Derby winners you had the opportunity to gallop? Derby contenders. Nobles promise for Kenny mcpeak. Finish for Tony Dutch and visionary who actually from Michael Matthews actually the first grade one winner that I ever way back in the day. Wow. I actually just sent me a picture of me leading him off sighting him in the bluegrass keelan like that look like I was like 12 years old. So you obviously are very familiar with the characteristics, physically and mentally that it takes to go through the Derby trail to get to the first Saturday in May and be in the starting gate, right? You know those who those types of horses as well. Does constitutional lawyer have some of those traits? And.
