"Good field of 6 going the post and it brings back last year's winning colors Victor. She's making her first start of 2022. Yeah, in the last couple of years and bell's the one in Kentucky, both the keenland and Churchill has been one heck of a rivalry. It will not continue unfortunately on Monday as bells the one is going to take a pass after running. Not too long ago, but maybe she needs a bit more time. I haven't heard any news from the pest and camp. I imagine that's a lot of times in racing new news is good news. So imagine that bribe will be rivalry will be renewed at some point. All that being said, Wisconsin who've in the intro one O 8 and change look. I think 6 furlongs at Churchill downs is her best ball game. She crushed in this race last year, she won by over three lengths. And even though the situation is a little bit different, this is our first race in a while, and she might need a race. I just think that Greg foley's mayor, written by Tyler gaff Leo and is just too good for this bunch. She has really, really, she's very versatile, but generally as she turns to tends to lie very close, get first run on them. I expect her to kick a few legs clear at the 8 pole and it would take a heck of an effort to mow her down and that effort will usually come from bells the one and she's not in your side. I think it's just too difficult to oppose the three horse constant in here. You know, better assured price in a long face. All right, I'm going to agree with everything you said. This is just far less of a field that she's facing than what she's normally runs against. Let's face it. There's no bells the one in here. There's no game, no CC, no Monday call. Frank's rockette, any of these other big names that would normally be in the same starting gate Wisconsin are not here in the winning colors. She's facing a bunch of up and comers. She's where they all want to be. I'm with you, bob. I find it tough to beat her. I don't want to take sub even money on her as far as a win bet, but I am Wisconsin fan. By the way, trainer Greg foley, who does a great job all the way around, actually excels maybe the most at these extended layoff returners. I think he's winning at about a 14 to 16% overall over the last few years. He's up to 17% with these layoff runners. So basically means when they return they're ready to fire their best shot and best shot is better than this field can handle bob and I both think she gets the job done. In the grade three winning colors race 8 on the Monday card at Churchill. Let's jump over to the lone star state. In fact, we're going to go to lone star park, where they've got a big day of racing on Monday afternoon, including the $300,000 Texas Derby for the three year olds going a mile and a 16th on their main track, field of 8 coming together here, bob, morning line favorite drawn out on the outside is the safi Joseph junior trainee AP's secret. Yeah, I know they put up $300,000 for the Texas Derby and I think they're team and their stakes coordinator did a good job. I've got a really interesting field of 8, I think that once this race is run, there'll be some interesting three year olds to follow from the screw. Definitely looks like a couple that have the potential to climb the ladder a little bit. So it's definitely a race worth watching. AP secret looks like a very talented horse, he seems especially with the short run into the first turn, although his amount of 16th as opposed to the next race we'll talk about, which is a mile. AP secret could get hung around the first turn. He's tends to do his best work going one turn. So the two turns, I think, might be as undoing. Although safi Joseph, of course, puts up incredible numbers and Edwin Gonzalez and other young writer to watch in this country. I love cover me cover me up in here. The 7 horse has been working really well. He's got good tactical speed. Giroud rise of Richard Baltus, he was a good second and a very quickly run allowance race at Churchill downs behind the horse that really impressed me in the Preakness of worst a completely under the radar even after the Preakness that Kenny mcpeak train creative minister a horse that will be interested to see if he turns up in the Belmont. But anyways, I think that covered me up got beat by a good horse and in his career covered me up said to face the likes of messier ironworks coordination American sanctuary. You won't see anything like that in here, including AP secret. And I think at three to one in the morning line, if he's anywhere close to that, he's a very good play. All right, so bob likes cover me up who I also think has a big chance. I didn't get past AP's secret, similar reasons to why you like cover me up. I just think he's been facing better competition, whether it's Moe donegal, early voting simplification, horses like that. He really isn't shaming himself against those better horses. And I think that that wood memorial this year came up as a really highly rated race. Who won the race, came back and ran a better than looked effort in The Kentucky Derby after trying to overcome a very tough trip in a very tough post. Of course, early voting who was second in the wood memorial came back and easily won the Preakness Skippy long stocking didn't run a bad race in the pretense. He's probably headed for the Belmont. None of those in here AP secrets my top pick in the Texas Derby race 11 Monday at lone star. The featured race on the Memorial Day card at lone star park is their 12th race, the grade three Steve Sexton mile. We've got a big field of ten how'd you see it? Yeah, I think it's a race that's got a lot of speed in it. And especially if a lector turns up, you know, which he very, it'll be interesting to see what he does. Because that definitely definitely changes the face of this race because he's a major pace factor in here. And what would be his two turn debut? From the 5 hole, the 8 horse shaz is interesting. He rates just off the pace. I think he's got a big shot. It just looks like it's going to be a really, really live pace. I'm sort of amazed at one of our old friends rated our superstars made 61 starts. Virtually all of them in the Midwest and this will be his first race Everett lone star park. Obviously he's done his best work at Oak Lawn. And then in recent years, at least he's left Oakland park for owner Danny Caldwell and who Prairie Meadows, he does not seem to perform as well at praying Meadows. I don't know if that means you just needs a break or he just doesn't like the track..

"I was thinking, I should have shipped earlier. But thankfully, we didn't work Saturday and then I was hoping to work Sunday morning. I looked at a forecast, and it had rain again. And I was like, if you missed this work, we're in trouble. And thankfully golfer and step, I call the Mike Lake, though, and I asked him for permission if he could work. And he says, yeah, he loves the idea. The fans will get to see it. And they accommodated us. The track crew did a great job, and we got to work in they worked out well because the next day, it rained at Gulfstream. I couldn't work any horse, so it was a big, it was an important fact. Hopefully it's important for us within the Derby. Those sirens you're hearing in the background are the sirens that go off during training if a horse gets loose on the racetrack and this is where the outriders come into play and really earn their money in Churchill downs as some of the best outriders in the game. So we'll keep an eye on that. This is always a situation which, you know, you just rely on those outriders to do their job and they're, again, fantastic here at Churchill and hopefully they'll go ahead and rectify that situation out there shortly. But those are the sirens you're hearing in the background. Saf, there are a lot of people when they flip through the Derby program. They're going to see names like Todd pletcher and Steve asthma and they're going to be very familiar with those names. They're not going to know safi Joseph junior all that well. Although that's changing the past few years, you have really emerged on the national scene. For you, this is a family operation. Your dad works closely with you. You're very close with your entire family. And that's really important to you. Let people know about safi Joseph junior and your operation. Yeah, I think racing in general, that's what it creates. It creates family bond and it creates memories with friends and there's highs and as low as just like a family there's housing your family is losing your family and the heights you got stronger and it loads you, you get stronger by building the character and that's what makes it truly special to be in the horse race and industry. You talk about those guys they're Hall of Famers and to just be competing against them. It means a lot. I grew up watching them watching all of them and always look at them to try to learn ideas. Now we're competing against them. We want to beat them. You're very emotional person. You were very emotional after the Florida Derby. As you were being interviewed, I think it was on TV G put yourself there. He crosses the finish line first in The Kentucky Derby. What's that moment going to be like for you and your family? I don't know. It's a moment of dream my whole life of you kind of want to keep it intact till you get there because I don't know what will happen, but it's definitely a moment I hope to experience if not necessarily soon, but I think we have a good chance of experience in it. When the Triple Crown, when you were 19 years old in Barbados, talk about that event. But in the triple chrome and Barbara that time, it was a big thing for us. And obviously in the world it's not a big thing to anybody else, but we had a great horse and his name was already talking to me. And I think he trained me more than I trained him. And that's what good horses do. These kind of horses that is level. I mean, most people could train them. There's not two ways to put out about it. You need the horses. I'm not saying there's not good in trainers and bad trainers, but when you get to this kind of level, these kind of horses, these are elite horses that you could select ten, 15 trainers, and they'll be just as good with any of them. It's important to get the owners and the horses. Yeah, savvy Joseph junior has been on a roll the past few years and he's one of the good guys in the sport of thoroughbred racing, saf, all the best coming up on Saturday. And go get him a way to Barry. Thank you very much. All right. And that interview, by the way, brought to you by our friends at jellyfish water..

"Know? No, most definitely. Even in the summer, if you're coming from somewhere else in the summer in Florida, it's very hard to come into that heat. Sapphire have you noticed anything different with the trip to Churchill downs with white a barrio this time as opposed to last year as a two year old, he ran in the Kentucky jockey club. He ran a good third that day. It's actually the only time he was defeated in his career, but it was a very highly rated race with smile happy and classic causeway also in there. Obviously a lot more people this year. But his demeanor, that trip to Churchill compared to this time. He's a changed horse physically. That day, I thought he got a trip. It was a little keen early and then he got bottled inside and he didn't get up to like the 8 ball. It was never going to win at that point. But you stayed on steadily. From a number of perspective on that day, he ran his race. I mean, I think he ran like an 81 buyer and the race before when he had won the around 81 bar. So he ran his race as far as tracking everything is concerned. I don't think he's a problem. He's changed physically as a horse. So he's got taller. He's got a lot more leg to him and he's definitely changed physically from last year to know. And he continues to change for the better. Even from January to now he's changed. He's changing. And he's changing in front of our eyes, we're seeing him every day. So that means he's really changing. He looks so much stronger than a lot of the other three year olds. I mean, he looks like more like an older horse to me. When you watch all the horses galloping at 7 30, some of them are very diminutive and they're not filled out. He looks like he's got his body already. He looks really, really good. Yeah, he's not an overly big robust kind of horse, but as I said, he's keeps growing. He kind of more liking that kind of way. And he's holding his weight well and his coat looks good and that's what those are the kind of things you want for a horse coming into a race. You drew post 15 in the 20 horse field. Is that, is that what you were looking for? And if you kind of mapped out who's the speed inside of you, who's outside of you, where you'd like to be early on? Yeah, for the post, you kind of, you know, you could draw any kind of policy pause was very important. We were hoping to be between 5 and 18 at worst, and then you're better numbers were probably like 8 to 16. We got 15, we were very happy with it. There's a little speed outside of us, but most of them are inside and we're drawing out wide enough that gives Taylor options a big breaks important. He needs to break well. He has brought well in the past and once he could break well and utilize his position into the first turn. I think once he gets into a good rhythm, he'll have a very good chance. It's been a pretty good post position to historically 10% of the horses that have broke from post 15 have won the Derby 6 for 60 so far the last to do it was authentic and 2020. So there's some recent history there too. So that has to make you feel pretty good. Yeah, someone sent me a stat after. I think the three highest winners posts are post 5, post ten and 15. They're all like 10.6. I think 10.4 and 10%. So it's the third highest post percentage wise in the history of the Derby. So it definitely shows the post is good. Talking with safi Joseph junior, the trainer of Florida Derby winner, white a barrio in that Florida Derby. He beat charge it. He beat simplification. He's beaten modern goal before. Those are horses that are back in The Kentucky Derby with him. We've had people come on the show and say, oh, I love the way charge it looks. We had Sean burn on in the last segment or earlier in the show. And he said, I like simplification to win the Derby. We've had people talk about more donegal. You've beaten all of those forces. Size up the competition for me. And I know you're worried about all of them. But how good were those horses you were beating in Florida? We beat some book face and a holy bowl. People said that he didn't break roll and then we came back and we beat him in Florida everywhere. He said about a better trip than us. So we beat him for a square and then charge obviously in the Derby had a tough trip. He was kind of a trip to white barrier hot into the jockey club bottle up and then he got out too late. So you would think we'll move forward a lot. Madonna go we beat him in a holy ball where I don't think we were our best and he was coming, he was a favorite in that race. So I think he really had much excuse in IRAs. We beat these horses legit and now because we beat them before it doesn't mean we're going to beat them again. But it does give you confidence to see the form work out. I'm a big believer in who you beat. We've been some good horses I've come back to accomplish good things. How much confidence is Taylor gaff Leon give you? I mean, he's got the best attitude. He goes out there and tries every time. Does that help you relax a little bit? Almost definitely. In general, we write Tyler and the championship meet a lot we write Tyler. I read on Edgar's IRS. Those are our three main writers, so to have a main writer on our horse that we've had a lot of success with. Voting for a while, it gives you confidence. It feels like you're right into horse and he's obviously two for two on him and he's 6 times champion, a Churchill, not a last meet, so no one's ever beaten him. So as far as writer goes, we're in a good position. And he wants to win the Derby as much as we do. Safi, why do barrio was one of the final Derby horses to arrive here at Churchill downs at what goes into that that decision there'll be some trainers who immediately after their prior race will the Monday after flyer van the Louisville and try to be here for three or four weeks, whereas you got all the work done at your home base at Gulfstream park and basically just here for less than a week. I think shipping ways you didn't want to be in very early or you want to be in the very late. You don't want to be in between and shipping very late for us has worked out well in the past when we were shipped. So we kept it to that. A lot of other trends do they have more than a one horse in the race and Todd has horse coming out of the wood Florida Derby. So it makes more sense for him to get all the horses in one location because he can't be in all those locations. So I think that's a lot some of them will come here earlier and not in general, some of them are based here. So I think if you could stay in your home where your base and ship was late as possible, I think it's the best end of the ship a horse. You barely got your last work in. Getting late when you were that was a crazy day, huh? Yeah, that was getting nerve wracking. I was thinking, I should have shipped earlier. But thankfully, we didn't work Saturday and then I was.

"Know, why do borrow he shipped up to Churchill he had won two one turn races over maiden and allowance company for safi Joseph by open lens. He was like, he went off 6 to one. And he showed speed from an outside post. He was up there like challenging classic causeway for the lead. And then like Vince said he dropped back. He had a little bit of trouble and then he came again in the stretch for third. Really a non threatening third behind smile happy, but it was still a gutsy courageous effort in your stakes and two turn debut. A great cult. I don't know about the mile and a quarter distance as well. First crop, I think of race day, white a barrios from, but yeah, to me, you're looking at, if you lock in a horse like him, you know, you always have to be happy about that heading in a Derby because like I said, this is a year where I do think that a lot of people will be going in different directions. Once again, the number to give us a call 888-966-4776. Talk about whatever you would like to talk about. We saw three great, I guess you could call them Derby, perhaps this last weekend. I'd rather call them Derby qualifiers because it sounds less like they're just stepping stones for the Derby. I think the most eye catching of the three was the bluegrass James, and we saw a phenomenal run from nowhere by zanden and a great ride by flavian Pratt. Yeah, absolutely. And whether it's prep or qualifiers, I'm gonna push back just semantics there, Bobby, but yeah, zing it in really, he broke from post four in that race. You know, he hasn't gotten away that he's gotten a way slowly and both starts this year, didn't get away fast in that race. But he wasn't dead last early. He was about 8th or 9th. He was towards the back. He really started to launch his move. I think going in the far turn and he just ran into a wall of traffic. And that resulted in him getting like shuffled back to last with a half mile remaining. And from that point forward, he just exploded to win going away. I mean, one thing about him was, you know, you can just watch him in the stretch and his stride looks like a cold that was his fourth career start. He's taking a big improvement from the risen star and I love the way he finished. I like I just like to look at that horse, you know, to me sandin is this long lanky athletic looking horse that is just going to keep growing into his frame as well. And I think he's improving for Chad Brown and I think he has a lot going for him in The Kentucky Derby. With that being said, that break is a little bit of a concern and I'd like to see him get out a little bit cleaner and not be like 17th or 18th in the early stages, but be more like 1112 13th or something like that towards the impact. Yeah, he puts a lot of pressure on himself and a lot of pressure on flavi and Pratt if he's got 17 horses to pass and 5 eighths of a mile to do it in The Kentucky Derby. Let's go to the phone's Paul in Connecticut. You got Bobby and James on the brisket dot com call in show. Okay guys, I'm going to take this a bit differently on the point made about what a barrio. I'm not a big fan of the trainer, okay? And I just was watching queenland all day today. And a point was made that he has won maybe one of 16 starts there. And he had a heavily bet favorite last race, I believe, and he came in third on a stretch out. You take him on a Florida and I don't separate this equi based data at this level of detail. But by and large, the guy doesn't do well outside of Florida. And I called in a couple of weeks, three weeks ago and made a point about the PA Derby win a few years back that was a big deal. And he got one of those silky Sullivan on runs. And the other point, and I'm not trying to get you guys in a corner here, but in a way I am. About 44 years ago before the Navarro service big bombshell right before then I was on a website called pace advantage making a comment that I felt that Carl broberg savvy Joseph junior, George Navarro, Norman mcknight, and one other guy who escapes me. In my opinion, we're suspiciously better than reality winning well in the low 20s percentage of races. And I follow this extensively. And I was proven right by Navarro, but I don't think that was rocket science. Okay. Now, I didn't have service in there. But I bantered with people about Joseph until you have data to prove it. I know people are clean. But why is it that he, for example, doesn't seem to do well outside of Florida and as a point of note and I'm not defending baffert here. I'm simply saying when you're given the best dirt runners for a half a million to a million by default, you're going to win a 30 year races. And I'm not defending them. And of the opinion that Chad Brown can win on dirt and he's a superior trainer the best in the country on turf. And I'm also going to make the observation that Brad Cox is far superior around dirt and turf. And I love the guy. But when you get right down to it, there's no way this guy's going to win the race in my opinion because it's Seth he Joseph. You take him down to Churchill, he's going to blow.

"That he wasn't going to get that kind of rosy trip again, but let's take a listen back to Pete's call of the $1 million grade one Florida Derby. And there are Florida Derby. Excellent beginning for classic causeway from down toward the inside. Simplification was way away in good shape today and he's up to challenge from second. Papa cap gets away in third wider on the first turn as white of barrio and race favorite charger drops in mid flight. He's about four lengths behind that it's own captain racing ahead of Clapton and king of truth. Cajun's magic is third last steal sunshine is second last and 11th and last is strike hard as they chase the Tampa Bay Derby winner classic causeway to the backstroke run. Classic causeway relaxed up front he leads to half the leg. Simplification will not let him get four second three wide popping cap third. We say this has charge at fourth at the rail. He's racing together with the great white of Oreo, a gap of another two to Clapton who's outside of old captain, and it's a length and a half to Cajun's magic. King of truth and steel sunshine race together about ten lengths off the pace and still at the back is strike hard. The opening quarter was 23 and three the half mile was 47 and one half a mile ago in the 2022 kerlin Florida Derby. We have a new leader simplification is powered past classic causeway who backpedals papa kath looms a threat on the outside. What a Mario takes third up to fourth is charging, dropping back his classic causeway then clapped in an oak captain as they run to the top of the stretch up front papa cap doing battle with simplification. Three wide white of Oreo charges getting ready to launch his Vinny's three legs off the lead but gaining ground with a quarter of a mile left to go. Now off the top of the stretch simplification bracing for an oncoming white of orio papa cap is very game between horses and charge it swings into action on the far outside. There's an 8th of a mile to go. White arborio takes over from simplification, charge it with the late say down the center 16th to run white of Oreo almost home. Charge it ships ground light of Oreo still there and white a barrio wins the Florida Derby for sappy Joseph junior from charging in second and simplification third papa cap ran fourth. The time for the race a minute 50 and three. So why do barrio victorious here? His fourth win from just 5 starts for trainer safi Joseph junior and.

"Also going to talk Arkansas Derby with trainer Rudolf preset, who will be with me at 9 40 as he sends out the undefeated we the people. In that race later today, we the people making his stakes debut in their hoping that it will be an impressive one. He certainly has talent, now he has to prove he can do it at a higher level. Rudolf also has yugiri in the fantasy stakes. And great escape and black adder. In the Jeff ruby's takes at turfway, the latter, another transfer from the barnum Bob Baffert. In Florida simplification, while he figures to take a big piece of the action down there. He's going to be among the favorites, the fountain of youth winter is fine to two on the morning line. That is a very deep and highly contentious renewal. Of the Florida Derby. He and the other contenders are going to be relieved to know that there will not be apocalypse sighting in that race today. So things do have a chance to play out cleanly. Classic causeway white of barrio and the up and coming charge it from the barn of 6 time Florida Derby winter Todd pletcher all figure to give simplification a run for his money later today. That is, that's not a give me for simplification. Like I say, that's a deep that's a contentious and a talented group of three year olds in that Florida Derby. Tammy Bobo is the owner of simplification, and you're going to hear her thoughts when she joins me coming up at 9 eastern this morning. And how about this a heartfelt congratulations to my good friend safi Joseph junior? His father, whom they call big saf. And their entire team on their first championship meet training title.

"But if you're buying horses in that range, in the mid to lower end kind of thing, you've got to find that the athlete instead of the page. Because like you said, you'll never be able to buy the fancy pedigrees. And if you do, if you can't afford one of those, usually they've got one leg pointing towards Barbados already. It's a tough racket. Yeah, and nobody's right a 100% of the time in this game. So when you go to a sale, you're looking for the athlete. You think you have them. It doesn't always pan out when you get them to the racetrack, right? No, of course not. This is the only game that you're probably right. What, 15 to 20% of the time and considered a genius. That's a good percentage, right? How important are percentages for a trainer today? Well, I think in America is huge. For everyone that everyone handicappers and even the public percentage yet to have a good percentage, you have to, it's very important. People that look up percentage and they don't even care if you claim a horse for 20,000 and drop them at 62 50 and your percentage is high. They'll notice that more than if you actually claim the horse or say 62 50 and you run it in a second and a third in a state percentages. I think that's key in America to get attention. You know, there's no question about it. That's the first place people look when they go to hire a trainer. They go to the trainer standings and the first 5 or 6 guys are who they go to. Everybody else is chopped liver even if you're doing a great job with a small stable people don't pay attention. Visiting with trainer safi Joseph here on trainer talk presented by phasic tipton on the horse racing radio network coming to you from barn 7. At Gulfstream park, which is where you can find safi Joseph junior and his father, safi Joseph senior and they are a great partnership and they're really going well right now here at Gulfstream park, safi trained more than 70 winners here in the United States now. We mentioned the other winners that you had in Barbados. Tell me about your first horse that you ever got involved with when you first started training. Well, the first first we ever got involved was a horse named wacom but she was a Philly. I should be before I took out my license. I was working together this guy was trying to hate and Nichols. I was working under him. And she was actually a good Philly. She did what she did for us too. Yes, she earned a good amount of money, too. She won a couple of locally bred races going to mile and a quarter. And she won it twice to tanglewood. It's on goal company. When you go to your website, you have your bio listed there, and you have a quote in your bio. And I'm going to read it to you. It says, it's not what you do, but how you do it. What's that mean? I think anything you do in life is where do you put into it? You know what I mean? If you put what do you put into it, is where you're going to get out to get out of it. If you put a lot into it and you're constructive thinking and you put your heart and do it constructively, you're going to get the results. So what's the key to being a successful trainer then? The key is having good.

"For the naira bets best bet. It is is the naira beds best bet. Take it away, buddy. It's the 9th race at Santa Anita on Saturday the sweet life handicap $100,000 grade three event. And I'm really into Graham motions or rika. I thought last time out versus boys ran well in New York, I thought they figured it out. The horse wants a turf sprint. I think it's gonna be really, really competitive here. Great sign that won Hernandez does not go to Northern California to run in the el Camino real for a pricey horse that he had an opportunity to. I don't think this is an amazing field. I think arika is in a really good shape to score to decent price. All right, so nice price there and I like your comment. It's not an amazing field. I think we can all agree with that. It's definitely not an amazing field for a grade three effort, the suite life at Santa Anita. I'm going to go to Tampa Bay downs and race number 8 the sun coast. No, I'm not going to put number two nest as my best bet of the weekend. My best bet is going to be exact as in the race because I'm going to try to beat the second and third choices on the morning line. I don't love number three. A little love and luck who's one dirt start was just fair at best. I don't love number 7 hot penny who's coming off a fourth place finish in the gas barilla. I thought both of the Phillies who were coming off maiden scores in their debuts ran very well and have every right to be even better second time out. Those are number 6 peaceful surprise at ten to one. Number 8 princess elin at 12 to one. I don't know if they're good enough to beat nest yet, but I think they're definitely good enough to be second at decent prices. So I am going to hammer a couple of exact in the suncoast two 6 and two 8 hoping to get a good mutual if one of those bigger prices runs under the big favorite nest in the sun coast stakes. All right, Dave, all 12 races in the books seems like we're done for the weekend, but we're not done for the weekend. As there's another huge addition of the equine form presented by twin spires coming up tomorrow morning. And to be honest, I don't know how Mike Pence is gonna fit all of this in on tomorrow's show 8 to 11 a.m. Eastern Time. First of all, two time eclipse award winning trainer Brad Cox takes your phone calls in this week's edition of you be the host, champion apprentice jockey, Jessica pyfer looks back on her award winning season. Hall of Fame trainer Steve asimus and talks about echo Zulu who's back in training, as well as super stock and his top Derby hopefuls. Trainer safi Joseph junior discusses the holy bull winner white a barrio, as well as springboard mile winner, make it big. Kentucky west racing owner Patrick O'Keefe looks ahead to classic causeway in tomorrow's Sam F Davis. That's not all. Jockey Mitchell murrell talks about his milestone 1000th career win plus another edition of I asked the answer with trainer Dale Romans and turf writer Tim wilkin, Kurt Becker stroll through racing history presented by lane's end and keenland and calling all three year olds presented by spendthrift. I have no idea how Mike Pence is going to fit all of this in in just a three hour span. It is going to be a fantastic addition of the equine form presented by twin spires tomorrow morning 8 to 11 a.m. Eastern Time. And I know you're a huge fan of that you be the.

"Well by TS. Happy to be with you here on this February 9th and not looking forward to talking to petty south street today, some trip handicapping talk. Little bias talk. I want to ask him about gallop outs, something he tweeted about recently, something I never talk about. And never really look at, but I know a few handicappers who it's definitely a part of their puzzle in their information that they like to get. So I want to ask him about that. You know, it's funny. I realized as an announcer, like the second, the second I call whoever finished fourth or 5th, depending if there's a super high 5 in that wager like I click right off. I have to look down to click off my mic, right? Because I obviously need to get off air. And usually I have to take an exhale, a little breath, get myself together. And then they're already galloped out. And I always like to look at the graphic at Tampa at least of when they post the pools after the gallop out and so that's kind of the next thing I'll look at. But my reasoning for it, I guess, is I'm like, well, if they're not, if the jocks aren't pushing on them, like, is there anything to glean? Because if they're really not being asked anymore and so really curious to ask any about that because it is something he's mentioned and obviously doing tripped out handicapping for a living. He's looking into any and all parts involved in the trip. So looking forward to that conversation that will be coming up here in just a couple of minutes. Of course, tomorrow we will start to look ahead to a busy weekend. We got entries coming out today for the Sam F Davis, looking forward to that to expect in a big field. I saw Marty McGee said classic causeway expected to now come over for that race. He was he's one of maiden debut and then his subsequently been hit the board a couple of times against some very, very good horses. And so nice one there. We have, I think, make it big for safi Joseph who won the springboard mile, undefeated the three for three. Golden glider was a nice allowance winner here. Still a little bit green, very lightly raced, but I think there's some talent there from Mark Cassie, and then nest, I guess who won the demoiselle at a mile an 8th is going to come over for the sun coast. So we get at the old TBD. We'll talk about that on tomorrow's show. I know we're off the turf already. We are recording on Tuesday and it's been just pouring rain all day. That's your Tampa weather update here. I'm in clear water, so I'm a little bit I'm over by the beach. Which the beaches was not nearly as exciting when it's gray and Claudia. It loses a lot of its luster. But yeah, looking forward to a big weekend coming up here and some other spots as well. Of course, San Anita kind of in the meat potatoes of their, you know, they seem like they got good stakes races coming up each weekend. We'll talk about some of those. This weekend, they have the suite life on Saturday. We never get to talk about Sunday races really anymore unless it's something that draws way far out. Even when we had the Friday show, Sunday races were tough because the entries would come out Thursday late afternoon and it's like, you know, no morning line, no, you know this, but like you know some big races run on Sunday. The queens played always used to but I think didn't they move it now to mostly Saturdays. I forget. It's also el Camino real Derby day. Hopefully we'll get to talk a little bit about that. That's another one where the West Coast, the entries come out so late that I don't know if I'll get a chance to look much at it, but I want to give mention to the el Camino. I got to go to the el Camino real Derby last year. Which was very, very funny. I love Golden Gate fields. I've said that on this show many times, I know you guys have heard me say it many times. I really do get a kick out of going there. I think it's a really fun race track to visit and I always try to give them a shout out. The Gulf Stream park TERF sprint coming up this weekend and then Oakland's got a couple of big races. The razorback, which is $600,000 for the older route runners and the buy co a quarter $1 million for the older Philly may runners. Same grade, same division one female one male and one runs for 350,000 more than the others, man. Good to be a good to have a male horse, right? Jeez. What do they call harness? Don't they call like the three year old, I forget if it's trotter to pace, but they call like glitter boys or glamour boys or something? And I don't know why, but I'm assuming it's just because that's like a marquee division. I mean, obviously three year old boys because of The Kentucky Derby in the Magna what the hell was I going to say? Not magnification. Some of you are screaming at your radius right now. It's this dummy. Magnitude. Boom. Got it. The magnitude of the Derby, you were screaming magnitude at the radio, weren't you? Admit it. Minute. Yeah, so. A couple other news things around the world of racing. You know, dark day Tuesday on Twitter, so everybody was fight with everybody else, but I didn't see the NHC NHC kinchen thing has been very strange to watch play out. As I said when it first happened, my initial reaction was like, okay, well, just DQ from the tournament, he broke the rules and it's over. And I kind of thought that would be the case. And then a lot of stuff got into, as I said, we hit talk recently, the optics of things. And I get that and, you know, he issued his statement and the NRA should understand why they issued another one today saying, but it's so funny. They don't name him, which is like, well, who cares about the statement unless people know who it is? Like, who cares if somebody suspended if we don't know who it is? I mean, obviously we all know who it is. But it's just kind of strange, but said he suspended for two years from the NHC and NHC tour. I just found the whole the whole thing. Start to finish with just kind of weird. I will say it did make for some funny memes on Twitter. There's a guy I follow. His name's crazy George or something on Twitter, but he was having a field day with all the you know he likes to do photoshops and stuff. And he did one and it was like right after the news of all this stuff came out. And you know, I've always got along with Jonathan. You know, I don't really have, I don't have any beefs with him, and he made a mistake. That's kind of my thing on this. I don't know how awful it was or what, but that's for other people to decide. But he was a Photoshop. It was a, it was the movie poster. It just kills me. It was the movie poster from leaving Las Vegas with Elizabeth shooting Nicolas Cage and he left Elizabeth shoe on there and he has leaving Las Vegas on there. He Photoshop Jonathan's face over Nicolas Cage's face on the thing..

And of course, tune into America's day at the races both tomorrow and Sunday two 30 to 5 30 Eastern Time on FS two. All right, Dave, they've got two stakes on the Gulf Stream card tomorrow. They were off the turf at Gulfstream today, hopefully they'll be back on the turf tomorrow because both of these stakes are scheduled for the turf. It says it right in their names. And we'll start with race number four. The sunshine turf stakes. This is a race that I believe at one point was called the sunshine millions turf, but the millions have gone away. And now it's a $75,000 purse for the four year old for the Florida bread four year olds and up, going a mile and an 8th on the grass. We've got a field of 7 and wait a minute. Didn't we just see sham rocket run last week trying the main track at Gulfstream in the sunshine classic? In fact, we did. He got a perfect trip that day to get up and win, and he's coming back 6 days rest for Todd, something that I don't recall ever seen for Todd Fletcher. He is the 7 to 5 favorite getting back to his preferred surface. Yeah, I like shamrock last week because I thought it was a really, really soft field and he just towered over that group. This is the first time since 2017 that Todd is bringing a horse back in 7 days or less. And I think this is a really, really beatable favorite. In fact, I love the idea of betting on this race and maybe shamrock gets better and maybe shamrock it's gonna win the race and if shamrock does, I'm going to lose because there are so many things here that I think point to I don't know about that. I think there's I think there's some value playing against shamrock. Going to be the chalk has the biggest figures in the race, but ran just a week ago, like you said, got the perfect trip, the fake in that race was very, very low and I don't think this is the distance shamrock wants. This is a horse that wins stakes races at a mile and a half. A mile and a quarter, we're going a mile in an 8th here and I think the race is too short on the turf for shamrock. So the question is, how do you try to beat shamrock and I'm going to play a bunch of them being Frank about it. The one I like best is max KO for safi Joseph and Ira Ortiz and I read as a piece of the equation these two hooked up for a win at Kentucky downs back in September. Bottom line is I think max KO is going to be in front on a very soft pace and I think it's going to be able to kick on and win. That being said, I'm using lure him in coming from California. First time out since November I'm a little bit interested in what that's going to look like moving from Southern California to Gulfstream, but had a good trip at Gulfstream park as one at Gulfstream park before and I'm the use kachina on the rail for Mike maker to stretching out. But max KO on top. I agree with number 6 max KO, and I rat Ortiz is a big factor in that decision. Last time he rode max KO was the last time max KO got the job done. He loves it there at Gulfstream. By interesting to note, this is actually the first day back for irad Ortiz after that. Incident, the starting gate that you and I were on for a few weeks ago originally looked like he may have a broken kneecap and we would be out for a month or so. You got a second opinion, an opinion he liked better, apparently, and they said, no, it wasn't. It wasn't a fracture. It was just a knee contusion, which, as far as I'm concerned, sounds like a bad bruise. And he's back riding this weekend, sparingly tomorrow and Sunday before he really gets back into the swing of things next week leading up to the Pegasus. But max KO for everything that you said, I think that this race is his to win or lose, and to be perfectly honest. I wish we could get fixed odds wagering. Because if you're going to tell me we get 7 to two on max KO and shamrock at a 7 to 5, I am running to get to the window. Max KO for both Dave and myself in the sunshine turf race four tomorrow at Gulfstream park. Jump all the way forward to the tenth race on the card. This is the sunshine filly in merit turf. Also a $75,000 purse also a race that I think at one point was part of the sunshine millions. These are Phillies and marriage that are Florida breads going one mile on the lawn field of 7 here, Dave, and it marks the return of number 7 sugar fix. She has done very, very well over the last year or so for trainer safi Joseph junior and last time out, one of the claiming crown races right there at Gulfstream. Yes, second off a layoff and coming off arguably her best career race. So you're certainly expecting sugar fix to run well in here. I think there are a lot of ways you can go. I thought the morning lines were going to be a little bit higher on like Kelsey's cross. I think Kelsey's cross who was in that race against sweet Melania last time and his run against summer in Saratoga. I think this is an easier field, but I need a decent price to bet on Kelsey's cross who quite frankly hasn't won recently just one win last year, one win in 8 starts and you have to go back quite a bit further to find another victory out there. I think Kelsey's cross can win, but I'm hoping to get a better price. My pick is sister tool on the cutback for Graham motion and Louis syz, ran last time out in a grade three event at woodbine on synthetic surface. And I think is better on turf. I think has some races that fit very nicely with this group. I like the layoff. And I think it's a competitive race, but I like Cicero tool marginally the best. Okay, so Cicero tool for Dave, I went to the favorite number 7 sugar fix. I don't have any real good reasons for liking this favorite. I just think that she is the most consistent of anyone in this field. I don't think she lays over this field. It worries me that she's coming off a big win last time out. And I certainly don't love 8 to 5. I think she's the most likely winner in the race. I will not be betting one dime on her tomorrow. So while I'm in a number 7 sugar fix on top Dave, I can unequivocally tell you, I am rooting for you with number two, sister O'Toole. I will not have any action in this race. It's just not my kind of field. The sunshine filling in mere turf race ten tomorrow on the card at Gulfstream park. 12 Saturday races in the books. We actually have one Sunday stake to look at. And it's from the big way. It is the $100,000 busana stakes aqueduct myelin and 8th on the main track. These are three year old Phillies and a field of 6 going to post and.

"Of this year's pleasant acre stallion's distaff turf, one impressively by summering and summering will be one of the major players in the 5th race tomorrow at Gulfstream park. Welcome back to the weekend stakes preview presented by nyra betts Bobby Newman Dave Freeman on this Friday evening taking you through a cool dozen races from around the country and they've got a 5 bagger tomorrow Dave at Gulfstream park and it starts with that 5th race, the grade $300,000 swane river stakes. Phillies and mayors going to strut their stuff going a mile on the turf at Gulfstream full field of 12, had you see it? This is a great betting race. You can go in a lot of different directions. You're going to get a fair price and it's not crazy to see it in a lot of different ways. There are two of my favorite horses in this race. I can't think of a time that sweet Melania has run that I haven't bet on her. And that probably hasn't been great, though, she's hit the board in 11 of 14 career efforts and made over half a $1 million. But I think sweet Melania on Saturday is going to be involved in a speed duel shifty she number three likes to have the lead sweet Melania wants to be near the front, same story for princess causeway and I think it sets up for another favorite horse of mine. God dolphins all who started her career for for four and has not won since, but has been facing very, very tough competition. I think a good second last time out in a stakes race at fair grounds. I think all this will be running into quick fractions and very well may get there and could score for ten or $11. Okay, so alms for day four to one on the morning line also a filly that I think has a huge chance in the race. I had it down to whether I wanted alms or long shot number 9 summering and I went to summering coming off that win at Gulfstream last time out and just kind of an overnight handicap race, but a solid race where she went one 33 and one for the mile. She's won two of her last three starts. She's in good form and that and she's also pretty versatile and that she can lay close to the pace or a few links out of it and like alms I think she can come a running. So I'm going to take summering at 8 to one to continue that good run of races and get the job done in the swane river. Alms for Dave summering for me, race number 5 tomorrow, the grade three swanny river at Gulfstream park. 6th race on the card tomorrow begins there a pick 6, or their Rainbow Six, whatever you'd like to call it. It's the $100,000 rampart. These are Phillies and mirrors going a flat mile on the dirt. And of course, with the move to the dirt, mile becomes one turn instead of two turns. We've got a short, but sweet field of 6 here, Dave, and the favorites on the outside, number 6 dream Marie for trainer Matthew Williams and jockey junior alvarado. Yeah, last three races, second at colonial downs, fourth at Delaware park in a win at Delaware in a $100,000 stakes race over 6 this year because was disqualified from that race at Delaware and a horse that is consistently putting up really good figures. I'm against, I need to see the horse beat. Horses of this caliber and quite frankly, 9 to 5 on a horse, it's zero for 6 this year facing horses that are about the same as this. I don't like that price. I don't like that morning line at all. Maybe dream Marie is gonna be the favorite. I thought the play here was Ralph nix's dance to oro loose on the lead. And I was pretty convinced that was the way I was going to go with this. But the more I looked at it, the more I liked the rail horse all worthy working really, really well for safi Joseph. Has faced better horses the last couple times in graded stakes races. And I think all worthy is going to sit just off dance to oro get first run and I'm hoping that all worthy is going to pass dance to Europe and hold off the rest at the wire. Okay, so number one all worthy four to one on the morning line for Dave in the rampart. I went to your first inkling. Number three, dance doro. Just because of what you said. I thought she might get loose on the lead and you know what, when she gets loose on the lead, it doesn't guarantee that she gets the job done, but her good races are certainly good enough and maybe she'll fire one of those good races tomorrow 7 to two on the morning line. Both of us taking a shot against the morning line favorite number 6 dream Marie Dave going with number one all worthy. I'm taking number three dance doro. Race number 6 at Gulfstream park tomorrow the $100,000 rampart. Well, unfortunately, instead of having all the stakes as part of the late pick 5 and the pick 6, Gulfstream is kind of split it up and they saw fit into putting a synthetic track racing for race number 7 tomorrow, which as far as I'm concerned means that I'm not handicapping the pick 6 or the late pick 5 because that's not what I'm interested in playing. But we jump ahead to the 8th race on the card at Gulfstream tomorrow, and it's the grade $300,000 sugar swirl stakes. These are Phillies and mirrors, and they're going to sprint 6 furlongs on the main track. We've got a field of 8 going to post here, and two to one favorite on or rather 9 to 5 favorite on the morning line is number three Frank's rockette. I'm going to tell you this, Dave, and I've said it before. I am fairly convinced that Frank's rockette is a Philly who bleeds. I think she is significantly better when she races with the medication Lasix than the races where she doesn't run on Lasix. It's not that she's awful in those 6 races. But I don't think they're good enough to get her to the winner's circle and she can't run on Lasix once again tomorrow. Well, that's really interesting, because I think Bill Maude is as good as it gets..

"60 $2 and 50 cents. See, I can add. I can do math in my head. But $62 50 cents is not a crazy amount for a lot of players, right? Like it's somewhat reasonable for pick four players. And that's giving them 5 by 5 by one by 5 or in this case 5 by one by 5 by 5 coverage. And obviously there's different ways to go about it. But to add in that fourth difficult leg where you might have to go four or 5 deep, it literally jumps the ticket cost up to $312 and 50 cents because it's 625 combinations. And so I would argue that there's a pretty big prohibitive cost to go from $60 to $300 for a lot of players. A lot of players, I would say a majority of players, 300 is on the north end of what they're willing to spend or lose in a day. I think it's way on the north end of that. Most folks are playing, you know, 5, ten, 15, 20 bucks a race max. And so you know, it's that much more difficult to hit that pick 5 for a lot of reasons. And I think when you add a 5th race that's not only an extra leg, but a tough leg like that first race was that's why you get a much bigger payout. The feature at aqueduct on Saturday, the Garland of rosa steaks, and I was so, so wrong. This race in terms of how I thought it could play out versus how it did, but I should say I was right on how it how it was right on how I thought the race would set up. It just didn't finish. I thought I thought city lady looked like very dangerous lone speed. I thought just Reddit was a really good long shot to come from off the pace. Both those happened for the first half of the race, but not so much the second. Let's take a listen back to John and brielle's call. Here is the garlic of roses. And they're off. It is Citi lady who goes out for the early lead. It is Sadie lady in front. Let me take this call runs in second song rivers on the outside and third call on mischief down at the rail and forth. Just read it as next day and 5th, star front far outside and the early trailer is glass ceiling in 7th. Sadie lady is the leader here by a length and a half. Song river up on the outside, second by ahead. Let me take this call down towards the rail and third the quarter one in 22 and one. It is Sadie lady, the leader here by a little more than a length. Let me take this call down at the rail in second, then comes song river star front on the extreme outside, call on mischief. His advancing now in between horses. And then at the back is a glass ceiling. As the field comes into the stretch, still Sadie lady there, the half 45 and three glass ceiling is gobbling up the slop on the outside. Here comes glass ceiling, who has now taken over the lead. Call on mischief has moved into second. Let me take this call and Sadie lady. Last ceiling with a less to first victory in the Garland of roses. So glass ceiling super impressive took to the slop and rallied from off the pace. They went Sadie lady. I thought, you know, could be dangerous on the lead, 5 and a half to one thought the price was all right and just got overwhelmed by him down the stretch in a glass ceiling, Dylan Davis, who continues to really do well lately. It seems like it seems. And I feel like I've said that for a while now. So maybe he's just doing maybe he's just good. But yeah, really, really nice effort from a glass ceiling, you know, has just gotten just been, you know, they claim for 40,000 back in the spring and as I talked about when we preview this race. You know, this horse was very solid before the claim and charm baker Charlie baker is a very like just one of those incredibly good New York trainers that's year and year out of very solid numbers kind of bar and obviously we talked about the success of Saratoga points toward that meet yada yada yada. But this horse in the Cantor Macy barnum actually is a kind of Machiavelli. But you know, was running high 80s low 90s bridge numbers was competing with that first level allowance. They finally drop in for acclaim. Charlie takes horse jumps up to pretty much that same allowance condition, run second, runs a low 90 number, runs an 81 in the start after like still takes a while to get through that first condition. In fact, took four starts. Finally got through it in pretty big fashion at Belmont and then last time and then the pumpkin pie ran very good behind lady rocket who we know came back in one and it just seems to be in good form right now. And a four year old horse has been around a little bit, but it just seems I mean and it's like I said, the move forward from a numbers standpoint like it's not it's not that much. Like it's not that big of a move forward, but just, you know, that extra little step sometimes at that higher level, it's the difference between winning and losing when they all can run. But really, really nice effort from glass ceiling to get the wind. Down at Gulfstream park, but he's down there in South Florida PETA yellow and Acacia back down at Gulfstream and love all the folks down there. Ron nicoletti, I always do my Nickelodeon impression whenever safi Joseph wins because he'll do it on the show and go. Mister safi Joseph junior so I always do that anytime so everyone's a race wherever I'm calling, which of course is pretty much only here at this point. But you know he's a mom with a Calder and stuff like that. But anyways, the feature, the mister prospector steaks. Let me get back to horse racing and not my run. Nicoletti impression. The mist prosper kind of the first big graded stakes race in the championship meet and obviously sets the tone here as we get into several pretty fun months of racing data Gulfstream, a lot of big Saturdays and looking forward to it..

"If you remember the fountain of youth, he had run so bad in the breeders cup juvenile, then he came back in the fountain of youth and just never ran a step was beating like 25 links. And he came back and had that decent effort at Ellis didn't run very good at Churchill and then one at Keenan and I hated him that day. I just did not think he was that much. I didn't think it was better than he got up late. He had hard work and win for two to one. But he's two to one again on the morning line and you know he certainly fits on his best day and I wonder if this is an example of me kind of being I don't want to say prejudiced, but against a horse, like I just said it in my mind that like, nope, Dennis moment was a total flash of the pan two year old Romans often to me is not the kind of trainer that will move a horse up later. You know, he's usually better early on having the horse, but there's clearly talent there and the horse is clearly in better form than it was in 2020. Is he two to one better? I don't think so, but you know there's there's not like a ton of town this race endorsed is in here who seems to always take a little bit of money and often shows up. It hasn't won in quite a long time. Wind of change toward the inside for safi Joseph a lot of speed, a horse who hasn't done amazing at Gulfstream. That to me was a little bit of a concern was one for 7 with a couple seconds. But seems to make the lead a lot and then get caught a lot. So just not sure. And has kept pretty solid company, but this is solid company. This is the mystery prospector. And it's funny because this horse actually ran in the other mister prospector at and won the other mister prospector at mama, so looking to sweep the 2021 mister prospectors, even though one's greater than one's not. I'll get a kick out of that. Flapjack shows up in here for Jack sisterson. I thought I kind of liked this horse against Dennis moment two starts back and Dennis moment beat him when he was kind of widely loomed up like he was going to make a big move. But I don't know, Gulfstream is such a funny track too, right? That's another reason I'm kind of against Dennis's moment now. I know like I said this was kind of back when he was in that funk of whatever kind. And so maybe just something to miss, but Gulfstream to me is one of those tracks where a lot of times you'll get horses who just will completely relish it or just won't fire at all. I mean, they just totally no show and I wonder if that's the case with Dennis moment. In a short price, like I'm just never gonna take a horse like that with who I think has questions, but also just I don't think it's that great. I'll see you Monday for the recap show when he wins. We'll talk about it then. I mentioned earlier gold gate fields with a nice card on Saturday, the bear fan stakes the feature event day a field of 13. And I know a lot of folks don't like all weather. That's fine. You don't have to. You don't have to play. There's no rules. But I just thought a contentious group, there's a fair amount of speed. It's a 6 for a long race. You know, you'd think that. I don't know that speed is some necessary weapon at Golden Gate fields. We've talked to a couple of writers who have been based there over the years, and a lot of them say that it's, you know, just getting your horse to relax, whether it's on the lead, whether it's back, that seems to be a big part of the secret for success there because you've seen slow paces and, you know, horses still closing from last and getting up and winning. It's just, it's not, you know, it's just doable. Also, I was kind of intrigued that daffodil sweets in here who's kind of been the queen of emerald downs over the last couple of years is a wickedly fast early type or has been at least on occasion and it seems to have kind of learned to come from off the pace a little bit if need be. And the two local races were in non condition allowance and they weren't great. A second and a fourth, I don't think she's quite at the level of some of these. There's some good horses in here. Tim McKenna has that horse and he also has revelation who's a pretty good turf and synthetic sprinter. Tip top gal quit Miller's horse was kind of the one I liked the most. This horse just seems to relish Golden Gate fields and the all weather 9 for 13 in the exact. It just tends to be forward the place kind of a grinder type. I don't know if the most dependable on the win end, but she just seems to always be right there and with the big field should be at least a decent price. Baltus Baltus has a couple in here. He's got hot he claimed last time, but the other one he's got. I think is probably going to get the most attention, right? Where'd the horse go? Oh, I was thinking a nardini. That's not the vault. Sorry. That's Andy Mathis. Who comes up from del mar, this horse is run at Golden Gate before and as fared very well over the all weather surface and I think a logical logical wind type here, the southern cow horses, they tend to often do pretty well when they come up here. Grants Pass is represented by a square Peggy. Got to give a shout out to the boss. Travis bores, but we had on the show last year, or in the spring, at least. This horse at grant's pass was didn't really fire very much in the stakes races where up there. And then.

She does nothing wrong and wins by a leak and a half. Twice as nice for second three Marie with a huge effort for third and one 36 and three. Welcome back Mike Penn baron in the backstretch with you on this Saturday morning. Pete Ella with the call of last year's davana Dale and totalist shape getting the victory it was part of a huge 2020 season for trainer safi Joseph junior he has continued that momentum throughout 2021 and is now poised to take a shot at the leading trainer title at the upcoming championship meet to do so. He will have to get past perennial leading trainer Todd pletcher who goes in search of a 19th championship title, but sappy hoping to dethrone him. But he's hoping to get past the claiming crown today. He has several horses entered and he's with me now. Here on the horse racing radio network, this interview presented by our friends at jellyfish water. Saf, good morning. Good morning, Mike, thanks for having me on. I was talking earlier in the program about trying to get past Todd pletcher. And some people would say, wait a minute now. That's blasphemy. Safi Joseph junior leading trainer at the championship meet. That's pletcher's meet. You admitted that, but you also didn't hand him to trophy. You said, hey, I think we can give him a run for his money. No, most definitely. This has been his meat for many years from the time I grew up. I've been a fan of it. And last year we got with an 8. I think this year we have more numbers, which always helps you win titles. We're going to give it and try to go after it. It's not going to be easy, obviously. You show these time it comes out of the champion and hopefully, if we don't beat them this year, we'll give them a run for the money and hopefully in the near future we will. We have a segment at the end of the program that's called I ask they answer and Dale Romans and turf writer. Tim wilkin joined me to debate various topics for about 25 minutes or so. And a couple of weeks ago, I posed the question to them. And I said, listen, is it really conceivable that safi Joseph junior could overtake Todd platform and be the leading trainer? And Dale said, you know what? He might win more races than Todd, but Todd's going to walk away with the money title. He's going to win the big races. Yeah, that's why I obviously don't have higher quality horses than at the moment. But our quality is getting up there also. So we're not we don't have the quality he has yet. But we're getting there and our goal is to continue to build here and we have to be trained for great owners and we're taking that more and more on as each basically to weaken our own together eventually. We're not there yet, but we're trending in the right direction. Scott 20 years experience on us with around 34, then he's 54. So I like where our progress will be made and I think we're trending in the right direction. Each year, safi, you have continued to build and you're right, the arrow is pointing up and it has been for several years now. What's been your approach to getting better quality horses and winning better races? How have you been able to do it? Try to get better every day to try to make the team earn this dependent on your team as you kind of or that's the reality of it. There's no horse racing for a reason you need the horses and the owners provide the horses. After that, you have to do your job, but you have to hire good people around you to work with you and just try to make everyone better that you compete against yourself and if you can improve every day yourself and you can improve someone that's on your team every day, the whole team is going to become a unit. For the betterment of the horse. And that's what we try to do with this. Everyone tried to improve rekindling that one. Just keep working hard. Those words sound good, saf, but how does trainer go about acquiring better horses and developing relationships with owners who have the better horses? What's the key? The key is running a simple. You got to run when you win, everyone loves you. You don't want to go wild they forget you and they throw you under the bus very quickly. So that's the reality. When you win everyone, everyone wants you to win. And that's what you have to do. But overall, you got to communicate with your owners. You've got to talk to them and give them honest feedback. The horse is not good or can't compete, you gotta let them know. Sometimes it's a true part, but the truth is only you get better in life and that's where you go to face reality with horses. This is not good enough when you need to drop in class. You got to give the honor the feedback and let them decide if they're going to let you drop the orders a lot. And thankfully we have honors our real estate to trust our opinion and just judgment and it's worth it. You know, you start off with a bang because you come out in the claiming crowd today. And I think you have a total of 8 horses entered on the program today, am I right? Yeah, we got 8 runners today, 7 and a claim is I don't want to in a normal race. Yeah, yeah. Walk me through the horses in the claiming crowd. I'll mention the name you can kind of walk through and tell me about the horses and why you think they're a good fit. I'll start with the 5th race face.

"Joel Rosario is if I was a trainer and I had to have a go to win. I had to have a win. I had to have, I think I put him on horse right now, just the way he's riding. He's just so three weeks ago. Three weeks ago. All of a sudden, a rad's been into slump for three weeks, right? Yeah, you see what I mean about polls? That's what that's media people do, Dale. I'm gonna start a poll about how many Christmas presents Dale Romans is gonna buy this year. Right, there's gonna be a hell of a lot, a lot more to receive. But in flabby and prop. I mean, I think that, you know, he's deserves to be on the list, which they'll hate, but you know he's he's a guy that, you know, a lot of people really don't know that much about. He's only been riding here in the U.S. on a regular basis since 15. And, you know, he's he's he's become a go to writer and out west. He's got a bunch of writing titles that delmar, but he's not in the household name if you will. Category like maybe Joelle and my old friend, I read, and Jose artis, Louis sias, but, you know, yeah, I think that if you're going to have to have these polls, which Dale hates, I guess they did get it right. All right. Final topic for today, again, you can listen to I asked, they answer every single weekend here, ten 30 eastern is when we kick it off on the equine form. If you miss them, head back to our website and check out the podcast of each of these segments. They have been really informative. All right, final segment and it involves Gulfstream's championship meet, which begins on Friday. Trainer safi Joseph junior comes into the meat with a ton of momentum having just captured the fall meat title and the spring summer meat title before that. Saffy finished 8 wins behind Hall of Famer Todd pletcher at last year's championship meet, of course, Fletcher recorded his 18th title for the championship meet last year. He's been unstoppable. Joseph was quoted in an article this week, guys, is saying the championship meet is Todd's meat. Last year we were pretty close, but we didn't have as many horses as we have this year. I think we can give him a run for his money. What are the chances safi Joseph junior walks away with the championship meat training title this year? He's got a solid chance he wins a lot of races, but I will say one thing, Todd pledge to walk away with the money title. So it'll be about show me the money. I don't think he was concerned about the number of wins anymore. So he just went in the big ones. He went all the big ones down there. He's powerhouse getting stronger all the time. Yeah, I mean, Todd is mister Gulfstream, just like he's mister Saratoga. You know, he wins all those meat titles. It was almost shocking to some people a couple of years ago when she had Brown started is running back Tod off. Can saffy Joseph do it? Yeah, why not? I mean, he had he actually started more horses than Todd during last year's winter meat. But, you know, it's also like, I don't want to say, like in this to the JVs trying to take on the varsity. And I'm not saying that safiya's a JV trainer, but the analogy is that no, he's got to step it up a little bit and, you know, he's got more horses, but Todd's got a bunch of horses and tabs quality is usually always been more than SAP. But, you know, Seth is a good horseman and he's going to get his shera wins. Does he have enough in his barn to knock off Todd? I don't know about that. But if I was going to do a poll on this, I think I put Todd on top. What about you, Dale? Yeah, I'll put him on top anyway, but he's way on top. I mean, soft, we can win the title for winning the most races, but Todd went to title for winning the races. You know, that's an interesting point because so often there's press releases that are sent out after every meat at racetracks and they say, oh, so and so was the leading trainer. So and so was the leading owner. So was the leading jockey. What do trainers covet more? Is it that leading trainer title by number of wins or would they much rather finish second or third in the standings and walk away with more money? Well, I'd speak for myself. I think earlier in my career training titles were very important. They got less and less important. And I'm sure same with Todd and more important about trying to win the right races and develop the right horses and you start thinking about your legacy a little more. And I think that more be remembered more for big races in multiple races. But isn't it more important though to also put money in your pocket too? That's the big races. Show me the money. Well, we'll see how it plays out again. That championship meet kicking off on Friday at pletcher safi Joseph, both going to be loaded and coming down there with the best horses. As will Dale Romans Dale looking forward to your horses strutting their stuff at Gulfstream, my friend. Yeah, we're gonna have a good winner. I think we had a great fall and some good two year olds coming on to beat three. We're just gonna be a fun winter. All right, we'll see if gael Romans can dethrone Todd Fletcher. What do you think? I don't think so, not a number of ways. So I just wanted to beat this first time you ever won a race where you beat me. I seem to beat me from the very beginning. His first race I ran second. Maybe this will be the winter of Romans. Who knows? I like that. The winter of Romans. Well, Dan, we'll talk to you next week. Timmy will talk to you next week. Appreciate the time guys. I ask the answer, we'll do it all over again. Ten 30 Eastern Time next Saturday. Fun stuff. Interesting point by Dale, though. What's more important? Is you heard him say, in the early days of his career, those leading trainer titles meant a lot more than they do today. He'd rather have the money today and who can blame him. But yeah, that will be interesting to see how this plays out in terms of the number of wins. Can saffy Joseph junior challenge Todd butcher in that category. He gave him a little run last year he thinks he can give him an even bigger run here in 2021, 2022. When I come back, I'll wrap up the show tell you what's ahead on.
