"Budget stakes. Nita will start in re number four bobby the desert code named after the two thousand eight turf, Sprint winner I believe we just kept turf sprint winner down the hill. I believe it was two thousand and eight five and a half wrongs. Maybe, it was oh seven, not sure five and a half furlongs. No more hill We feel the six. And it's unfortunate I wish they were still running down the hill, but now we get five and a half furlongs on them were conventional turf course, and there's plenty of speed as you may expect in this race number, one Phantom boss number five party town both the speed of the speed plane, and simply I think number. Four rookie mistake is better than this field. She's been in the money. All four tries on the senator turf course to. To wins two thirds. She's learned how to sit a little bit off the pace and come with a bit of a run. Six furlongs looked like it was a little too far for her last time out five and a half furlongs. I think it's a right between the eyes or hit. It's m right between the eyes and I think rookie mistake at five to two is a horse that I would single if I'm playing horizontal wagers. Bobby Newman, perhaps saying. She because the number two, she's so special on the boys. She beat them last time in an entry level allowance optional claimer where it appears. She was in for the tag. She'd runs through conditions. She was in for the tag. Nobody claimed her now. She's two to one morning line favorite. Boys in the desert coat. She is a perfect two for two at five and a half promos. Don't let the distance marker in the region form full you. They clump in the five furlongs in the five and a half. She's a perfect two for two at five and a half furlongs Peter.

"Which you know which was over in France and in France a mile and an eighth is probably a little bit closer to an American mile and a quarter And then he also wanted. Milen quarter race over in France In his best American-run was also at ten for in the Derby. So He's definitely going to appreciate the distance however that the weird thing about the Mile and a quarter on the grass Starting point is it's downhill from from the break it's downhill and we've seen a lot of times in raisins like that forces you don't usually Who WHEN GET STIFF MY OWN QUARTER OUT OF TRACK? Belmont are able to to carry that Day at the SPA is probably the biggest one I can think of even in the Philly in mirror going back to last year horse like era. Desa PROBABLY BETTER. Meyler bill because of that Santa Anita Start is able to get a bit of a solid run-up to kind of save some energy that does point horse like the six original air who At a mile and an eighth one and allowance by five lengths at Santa Anita last time out and does have Umberto Rissoli who is writing the standing needed. Per Course as good as has in the history of Santa Anita. You've been on fire there Since since coming here in at the beginning of this year so I think Even the top two united in rock emperor or the most proven They're also not the best horse in the world and you have a horse like originator. Who's been running some pretty good races? getting a little bit more distance which might just be Something he needs. He's run probably best races. The longer you've been allowed to go Good connections right.

"In stakes races at ease. Really just getting beat by horses either. Get better tips than or Either get better tricks that can were probably just better on the day. Herodotus being one of them but Majora sorry is a board obviously can't go wrong to El Rosarito and He always comes running late no matter the pace in front of himself. Pick slate on per second for me in third. I will say billy. That's a his. His grassroots is obviously much better than that lasts. Dirt race in I think the miles probably going to be his destiny for the rest of his career tote if he can you know a good stockton trip? He'll be there late no matter what and the final race ligaments that we're going to get to on the Churchill downs card. Wasn't that win again? Eighty-five Derby points for grabs fifty for the winner in mention start. This does bring back the return of Max Field You know I think everyone like I mentioned the beginning. Everyone's pretty much under the especially with how poorly that Breeders Cup juvenile field. Turn out. Pretty sure it's a universal opinion that Max `field would have won that race by a lot of lengths and basically would have had the rest of field begging for mercy in that You know but he. He is off a layoff but aside from that he's been working good lot sign show. That McAfee is going to be in store for big year here. The one problem with him in years that there is not much speed. The only real speed factor in this race would be the number six New York traffic now. New York traffic did run a really good race in Louisiana Derby last at two run second but that race was kind of merry go round race that feature the one to going on the lead the entire time so I I could see a situation where he gets where maccesfield get stuck in a situation not having a paste run into that also factors into another horse major fed who was second in one in the division of that was won by modernist and was four last. Start out in the Louisiana Derby. He did not have a pace to run into at all and he close really nice to get four. That was really impressive for for him to close from last to fourth in that race with having zero pace to run into. He's another one that is dependent on a good pace trip And if it doesn't pan out which there's a possibility it could not fan out then there would definitely be problems with him there but you know maximum is GonNa be the big horse in here There's some other horse in here that I know. Eric wants to mention but Chino. I can't go against Max `field because of how impressive he was last year. The two year old The one concern to concerns a layoff and the pace but I'm going to swallow Lavenham. Swallow the pace and I'm going to go with McAfee here. Just because I know that he has all the talent in the world and I've always said Makhdoom probably in in the conversation to be with I guess heart top four. Tis The lost an adult Charlotte authentic. I think he's in that I guess you could make in the five and that's your top.

"Really nice races up in New York and I think Dan jurgens starting to really figure out what this horse needs though. He's a six year old with a lot of experience hard so the next. We'RE GOING TO SKIP OVER THE MATT. Win and go on and talk about the war chant. We'll come back and do some solid horses in this race. That headline out. Billy Batts is the first one on billy. Batts was second in the Breeders Cup turf behind structure last year. You also have field pass. Who in his most recent start won the Jeff Ruby? A TURF WAY. He's get back on the grass of her son. Like I've mentioned in the past horses that can run on those synthetic another twist of fate. I know those. Those are two completely different sources. Another twist of fate always struck me as grass roots and he ran a really nice race synthetic Golden Gate and I would not be surprised in here to see Fueled passing ran that nice race in Jeffrey. Become back here and run really well in a race like the war champ again. This is another another wide. Open race lottery routing. There's a lot of shots you can take in here. You know this another type of research you look at it and you say. I don't know who I'm going to go with. Because the favourite probably is definitely has a potential to get beat. So lot of routes. You can go very very wide open. Like I mentioned and Eric Probably GonNa have a long shot to go within here. I'll take one of those two Billy batts or pass but again you know I I make mention here longshot. Play take take a shot in here because this is definitely race it you take a shot in. I take favorites a lot. More than the average handicapper does saw that. That's just my two cents on. That is a wide open race like an obviously wide.

"All right so we're back this week on racing on episode number sixty two. We got a lot of stuff to get to on this show so much sakes action this weekend. They're like I mentioned Gulfstream kind of filled up the calendar last weekend. But this is the first real weekend where everything gets back into it but I just want to. We got a lot of stuff to get to. So we're going to very briefly. Just take a look back at some of the some races down Gulfstream and also talk about the couple of allowance racists from Churchill. This weekend that are we're talking about as well as hit on the desert stormer out at Santa Anita so just to recap from last weekend Friday Saturday Sunday done at Gulfstream on Friday. Total a shape back in the winter circle in that race Double Crown on Saturday when the war stakes. Jakarta won the powder break and musical. Romance went to Lady's Island and then finally the Sunday silence on Sunday was won by just whistle so like I mentioned we wanted to just get through these a really quickly but we will just hit one one thing until the shape. She's back in the winter. Circle runs while golf stream in lower level stakes. So you know. We picked against her both of US air. Eric has been the king of Ping against a toll shape but just briefly mention Yoshi in races like this really hard racist like this Gulfstream. It's really hard to doubt her. She's got to do it at some other. Some other level Whether it's in another graded stakes race or at another track which That still remains to be seen whether or not she does that. So that's just the one comment that we have from this weekend and maybe also the other thing is don't Right off the fact that green like Oh might in fact the horse wants to go longer. that those are the takeaways that I had from this weekend. Also worth mentioning the powder. Break Him off the turf. So that's why got stormy did not run this weekend. So that race kind of lost a lot of its luster there. So that's my take wisdom. This weekend I'll let Eric. I Know Eric Mall just one thing quickly on God stormy before we move onto some of the other races from this weekend forgot storming race came off the turf so obviously he was running. Took a lot of the town away. We also saw the to Chad Brown horses. Scratch from that spot We'll see wherever they decided to come back. Churchill probably as a couple race we could see.

"Horse of the race gets taken off his only dirt race After his first start he's only dirt race with a six and a half length win so he's another good horse but I think it goes through four wheel drive nevertheless so now we're going to go back to golf shrink. Pick it up with three straight as I mentioned. Golf shoots put together some. Nice listed races Friday Saturday and Sunday all have a those listed stakes. And the first one that we're GONNA talk about easy one on Friday the Hollywood wildcat and this is going to bring back one of our favorite pastimes. Specifically Eric's one of his favorite pastimes on here is to not pick totally shape in race. Where she's going to be a big favourite end and the thing about toneless shape is that you know going into the Gulfstream Park Oaks. She was undefeated had answered every question. But there's just always been that aura of uncertainty around her and told US shape kinda showed us why she wasn't why we've all consistently had doubts on her. Her effort effort in that race was not very inspiring left a lot to be desired. Seven place behind a horse. Swiss skydivers gone onto a couple of really good races but Aside from her. You've got some other horses in here up in smoke a horse that I like in this race that she's undefeated three for three for George Weaver This is the first time she does starting to but Her her last three races have been pretty good so she is one to consider also cheer meisters another one that strikes me a- as another one who she's ruined some good races at Gulfstream couple wins lasted out. She was second before that two wins in grade. Three races oh she's got talent as well as some other horse in here that I'll let airtouch but again the thing we're told the shape is she's going to go off favored but you know it's just there's always been that uncertainty around her and you know really whether or not really. I've been reluctant to pick her as of late and I'll continue to be reluctant to pick her. Because you know that the Gulfstream Park didn't encourage me very much about her at all and Jack.

"Be intriguing to see where they go with him and little paranoia I think he'll be running. Those big Be graded stakes. This was a one-off raised. I imagine todd pletcher wasn't too upset considering He had the he had the winner in this. So that's it for several last week. It was a pretty light weekend for racing across the country. But before we get to where we're GONNA lead golfing for a minute. I want to go to Churchill downs and talk about the the pair of allowance races that we got coming up this weekend brings the return of Mon girl. Obviously as we mentioned earlier who has not run since her win in the Breeders Cup distaff at the end of her three year. Old Campaign She's been she's won or been second and offer starts only second two times one nine so obviously you don't need to tell me how consistent. Montemar girl has been you know. Her record speaks for self Breeders Cup. Distaff winner Kentucky Oaks Winner Eclipse Award winner champion three year. Old Filly in two thousand eighteen. She did not run last year but she's been working up to this point and I think it's a good move by Brad Cox to start her in a race like this as opposed to maybe running in a race like the Shawny I start back off of a layoff as long as the one that Montemar girl has had and you know there are some girls. Not The only horse in this race There's a couple other horse in this race. That are fairly solid horses but I just don't think even with the layoff As concerning the layoff is with Manteo girl even with the laugh. I just don't think the ninety one really is going to be able to step up and beat her. She's equality horse and I just. I don't have any concerns with her. I realized that you know the layoff. It definitely it would be a turnoff for a lot of people but just I would not be super inclined to say that you know just because of the layoff. Montemar girls are not going to be able to come back and turn on a plus effort. We've seen her win a lot of big races and I think she is going to start back up and have some some kind of good campaign. Whatever aid ends up being this year but layoff is a concern but not enough to not pick her. I agree with that with that sentiment. There Wall Wallet is a group Group. I mean the three fashion pope hot is a stakes where he's taking dropping in class here off of the big layoff and she's been good In addition to your his life Talk to me the Civic Su Usually at one point in time was considered one of the best three year old phillies in the country a couple years ago. Same Year Manuel girl was a three year old..

"All right so we're back this week. Episode Number Sixty one we got a lot of listed races are listed six down all over the country as well as a couple of very interesting allowance races at Churchill downs. Just kind of passing along some news. That has happened over the course of this week. A lot of you know as we mentioned last week. A lot of tracks were beginning the reopening process Santa Anita has as of yesterday got their clearance to reopen Racing without spectator so we will have all the races insanity to that. We have missed over the course of time. We'll have those on there as well. Some races that had been planned for the beginning of June end of May beginning June. So we'll see all those races at Santa Anita comeback in one way or another also worth mentioning the updated Kentucky Derby points races those come out from Churchill down so very interesting to see some of the some of the races that have gotten Kentucky Derby points a lot of lot of tracks around the country have races that are now at the very minimum ten up to the Belmont sticks which is a hundred fifty point race for winner of that race. We'll get one hundred fifty points toward the Kentucky Derby so a lot of research can go check that out. If you're curious to see what races are what races at what tracks have what amount of points so you know. There's that as well as I already mentioned the large amount of listed races at Gulfstream. Put together for us as well as a couple nice allowance races at Churchill downs featuring the comeback of monoploy role and the return of Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint Winter. Four wheel drive up. He looked very good in his win. The Breeders Cup Juvenile. It's GonNa be as I start of the year but before we get to talk about that stuff we're gonNA talk about Just the one race. We talked about on the show last week. which was the sunshine forever stakes up which we talked about going into that race. Saw that war will was going to be the big horse running in it and Unfortunately the morning of the race war of will was scratched. So that kind of blew the the segment that we had on that Basically saying that we thought were of will was not necessarily a cinch but this is a really good spot for him but aside from more of will Defecting from the race a very good very good race run by one by a horse holiday who has run a couple nice Racist down a Gulfstream. In obviously the aforementioned sunshine forever and then before that getting an allowance win and then prior to that Also at Gulfstream on December. Twenty eighth he won the Tropical Parker Resell so nice racist for him. At Gulfstream mixed in a fourth place effort at Tampa Bay downs. But it was a nice race for him. Social Paranoia Guppy by decent group of horses. Not exactly what you wanted to see. But I'm not ready to say that. Social Paranoia is a one off or anything like that. He'll use fine. You know obviously a bit of a setback. But he'll come back that's not going to derail a campaign for him.

"March. Thirty first two thousand nineteen at the Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia California the San Simeon stakes horse race was well underway the greed. Three competition at Santa Anita Park was shaping up to be yet another exciting outing but not for the right reasons as the competitor sped into the final turn. The horse named arms runner tripped and fell into the dirt as the animal went down. Horse named Lazar Dane fell with it. Miraculously loss Dane was unscathed. Arms runner on the other hand suffered a broken ankle. When the track cleared arms runner was taken to the stables and euthanized. It was the twenty third horse death at Santa Anita in three months and it wouldn't be the last welcome to sports criminals. Par cast original. This is the thirtieth episode in March Madness. Special non this month. We're counting down the top thirty one sports scandals from nineteen ninety. Two Thousand Twenty. I'm Carter Roy and I'm Tim Johnson in today's episode. We're going back to two thousand nineteen when Santa Anita Park experienced dramatic increase in horse deaths. Racehorse deaths are not uncommon between two thousand nine and two thousand eighteen over six thousand horses died in America but in two thousand eighteen the death rate dropped thirty seven percent. It was a hopeful. Sign that the sport was getting safer. Then at the beginning of two thousand nineteen things took a dark turn at a race track in southern located about seventeen miles from downtown Los Angeles Santa Anita Park had been in operation for over eighty years legendary horses like Seabiscuit Secretary and John. Henry all famously kicked up. Santa Anita's dirt as they charged victory but in early two thousand nineteen the historic race track was struck with a crisis from December twenty. Sixth two thousand eighteen to March second two thousand nineteen twenty horses died nine out of ten times the Horse was euthanized after a serious injury. When a horse brexit's ankle or leg it has a difficult time sitting still long enough to let the bones heal and because these majestic creatures can weigh over one thousand pounds. Even a healed leg has trouble supporting so much pressure. Re Breaking the original fracture is a major risk rather than subjecting. The animals to excruciating. Pain veterinarians generally agree. That it's more humane to euthanize them. However horse racing officials had no idea what was causing so many horses at Santa Anita to suffer these life ending injuries. The problem was so severe. The park had to temporary shut down for the first time in its storied. History many believed that the abnormally rainy winter was to blame. They suspected the dirt track had become too soft after three weeks of investigation. New Rules and regulations were put into place and the park was reopened at the end of March. However the horse deaths continued by the end of. May Ten more horses died with the sunny so cal summer in full swing course conditions were no longer a concern instead. Training tactics went under the microscope. Apparently four of the horses who died were trained by Hall of Famer Jerry Holland door for despite his impressive record in June. Two thousand nineteen all indoor for received a lifetime ban on all tracks owned by Santa Anita's parent company the stronach group and yet the deaths continue to mount. It seems like hall door wasn't the only trainer using dangerous methods but in their December two thousand nineteen report. The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office concluded that there was no evidence of animal cruelty or criminal activity taking place at Santa Anita. Instead the report recommended the continued implementation of new rules for the animal safety as well as harsher penalties for those who violated them. Some of the rules put into effect included restrictions on steroids race day medications and anti inflammatory drugs. Despite the increase in rules the death still continued at an alarming rate. In the first two months twenty twenty nine horses were euthanized. After sustaining injuries bringing the toll to nearly fifty since December two thousand eighteen time will ultimately tell the new regulations put an end to horse deaths at Santa Anita but if they continue to escalate public outcry may close the famed race. Track for good..

"Mcglaughlin have been their whole career so they in their east coast based so just looking at one through six who are all based out west and just kinda shows you how weird this this handicap divisions in America not only but also out in the west coast Considering many of these horses have been clamours sold at horses of racing obeyed sales just a very bizarre group of horses to say the least but nevertheless a good group or I'm not gonNA deny that it's a very talented group. Definitely all had very strange careers. I'm going to focus on the east coast forces because I think they're both more talented than Maybe not more talent. I should say more talented. I think they're as talented as the two west coast hopes here gift box midcourt. We talked about gift box extensively How we think he's how we think he's legit but we thought he was going to Saudi and he did and that gives me confidence that he's going to run big. Here is the highway though and gives eleven pounds to Hawford in endorsed which to me is kind of insane. Hockberg is no slouch at all to be carrying one hundred fifteen pounds which is actually less than the two thirty five. He's been very average eighties. California stakes races seems very disrespectful. To me I think cough break. This is make or break time for him for sure You know he's coming off a big layoff in the mine shaft which is why ag- knocked y kind of have to throw that race out and he's only ran two times since the fall of two thousand eighteen but when he puts his best foot forward. He's a very good horse. He's he was second in the Florida Derby and I As three year old and gave back that up a really good reason to Kentucky Derby just an awful trip and then the Belmont. He ran a really good third before he came back into chrome to win by. Maybe maybe ten weeks so I think he's a good worst nineteenth that he's getting to an optimal distance a mile quarter probably his best distance. So I I think it's just because I like hoffer lot now have that I'm denim citing within here but I just think that this race went in. I do like that flavor of Support Flavian. Pratt rides out of his mind every time he's at Santa Anita so I'm GonNa go Hockberg on top of Midcourt I don't know facing this kind of group is because we talk. We're going to give it to them. That was before we knew gift box in Hoffer in endurance. We're going to show up in the spot. We didn't know that we were going to give it to face off the back that none of those three showed up those three showed up. I think he's the best horse in this race so I'm GonNa Cau- On top and that's fairly gift box fairly being exciting gift boxes. I mean he is the class this. This west coast handicapped did and endorsed of youngest horse in the race. The only four year old which is pretty pretty weird to save at least in a great raid one race but he came back in the grocery mouths race in rain. Huge definitely underrated based off of the factory ranch fourth in the travers to starts back against the likes of Mutual Gustavo WHO WANNA PAY. His task disarranged huge last time out in the Saudi Cup and the winner of that race code honor. Who went onto win Jockey Club Gold Cup not to mention finishing ahead of some pretty solid horses as well so on. Go Hawks on top Over the Fox over endorsed Midcourt. Listen if those three weren't showing up I would. I would definitely given give him all the praise in the world but he's just not at that level so that's about it for this episode looking ahead to the next couple weeks we got to. Arkansas is coming up next week. Obviously the rebel big grade one race. We'll talk about that. We'll talk about all the stuff that happened this weekend. A one thing. That one other notable piece of information came out. This week is the annual nominations for the hall of fame. So if you remember back from the early days of this show over on Youtube I chronicled. All the cases looked at all the cases of the fever all the horses in all the people who are up for consideration law fame. We're going to do that again. This Year Eric. Split that up. Eric's going to do the horses that I did last year. and also he's going to take a look at my. Guy Doug O'Neill goes you know as much as I could put aside buys. It's much easier to to let eric do it So so those will be coming out over. The course of the time between This week and all the way up until the May sixth one when we find out who is inducted Hopefully we'll get we'll get into that toward that points or not really gonNa just wanted to mention that. We're not get into big hall of fame stuff on this show but we'll get to that down the road as well so that's coming up. We'll see you next week on racing run out..

"The Breeders Cup. Still Seems Fluke Seems Fluke as it happened and it was backed by that Dole effort in the San sentate coming back to two terms. I have a little bit more Respect for him but even that it's it's hard for me to see this as a horse. Second contend with the two baffles. The horse I think is the most legitimate of legitimate threat to the beverage. Despite the bit of a layoff is wrecking crew You don't run I know he said that. The breeders don't list fluky but he was consistent before is third in the Breeders Cup juvenile second in the del Mar futurity which yes another week. Race But he has the talent. He's he's been consistent. Nevertheless Lasalle futurity was just a weird race in general so I can't knock him for that but he he ran really well in the best pal is his third start in Iran wound down Murphy Charity Herein. Very well in the Breeders Cup and destroy lines that Lewis healthy turtles a weird race for him. He's been very consistent. And Peter Miller Kinda Guy who can move a horse forward off of the layoff he gives. Horses lay off for a reason. He thinks city time you giving a horse time so I think he's maybe the the biggest threat however I don't think he's going to beat him. I think it's definitely authentic one thousand words to wrecking crew is gonNA run a good. I don't think he's GonNa get blown out of the water here. I think he's only get beat. A couple of weeks set him up for Santa Anita Derby run and moving onto the libraries. We're GONNA talk about on this show. Today is Sanity Handicapped Not necessarily didn't necessarily play out how eric and I were expecting after the San Pascall Eric and I were basically handing this race to mid court With the assumption that gift box was gonna go across the ocean of Saudi Arabia. Now that did not happen in gift boxes here. He's going to try to repeat win in the Senate any cap and not you and I were a little bit too quick to hand midcourt this any handicap because as a gift boxes. Of course you know if you're already talking about how how well he's done at Sanaa Nita in the past. We Want Sanity handicapped last year very tough race for him to win very very nice win. A Mackenzie pushed him to to the limit in Santa Anita Handicap last year and You know gearbox show that he was a really classy horse in that one You've also got combatant. Who was third in that? I don't think combatant so win. Contender in the spot but He John Sheriff says tournament or Excuse Me John. Sadler has turned him around a little bit. it will be interesting to see how How mid courts can be able to do when he runs against another horse of high-calibre? Eric cannot have both said mid courts. Not a high caliber horse. But he's the type of that could definitely benefit from the the star horses being overseas. Now that give vox all. It is not overseas though it will. We'll have to see how he's GonNa Handle. That still could be a worse. It could win but I'm not not at all ready to hand him. This race The the to the degree that we were at the San Pascual. You've also got endorsed. We talked care mcglockton already. This could be a final. Like last Hurrah. Great Win for Karen McLaughlin If you're sentimental type of person rooting for this force also bill much brain out. Hockberg on he was seventh in the mineshaft. Not a great start for him but Hockberg has been a horse that looked to have something not really sure if it's there but You know he's out here. He's in the race. He's got a chance to do it. we'll see if he can yeah this horrid only further. I just want to talk about how interesting this group of forces their eight horse in the race. Horses one through six have all switched trainers at one point in their career to. I four for the first five of I. Six horses from one to six posts in order have changed ownership at some point in their career the seven and eight. Hof Offspring endorsed From Judd farms and Godolphin Belmont care. Mcglaughlin have been their whole career so they in their east coast based so just looking at one through six who are all based out west and just kinda shows you how weird.

"Belongs on the grass despite that pedigree of which has tons of dirt graded stakes winner in it He's kingly is a very nice horse on his best day and one reason I think he has a big chance in this race it. There's not a lot of release fees and this is a horse. Who has maybe sprinter's speed that he can carry a very long distance. He sets pretty quick fractions for Mile Races and is able to carry it. A evident by hiccup win last summer at Del. Mar Touching on got story. I think that last rates. I'm drawing the lines for now Obviously if she doesn't perform this upcoming Saturday I know that that is definitely. I definitely regressed from last year but I have to give her credit. You're in super good at Santa Anita in her in the Breeders Cup a little while ago and I just think she has the talent and I don't think she's regressed. My pick is going to be river bowling. He's he's a favorite of mine. He always has been super consistent as ever since he came to the United States. As a as a late two year old and She just carry. That is one last time kind of just prove that he has a he still hasn't. He's coming off five six straight losses. A dating back to last year and yet his last bounceback super super incredibly winning by two and a half lengths over a pretty solid through multiple coming out of Multiple coming into this race out of that same last race. So he's going to be my pick. I think God stormy runs big but I just think because in like Santa Anita as much as he does it's going to benefit them just slightly more so river going. My pay always been a favorite of mine over got stormy over kingly for third moving onto the San Felipe in this race is obviously rightfully so going to be dominated by Bob Baffert. You know I've had the conversation with Matt many people about this just pointing this out my own time. It's kind of like the way Bob Baffert going about the Kentucky Derby this year. It's like he's playing a game of risk Trying to figure out what horses to put where get the most amount of points in what particular races. And you know we always knew that the two California stakes winners. Authentic thousand words out would be sticking around at Santa Anita and would run in the San Felipe and it's an now that they're both entered. It's very likely that these two horses both run one to At this point. I'm not sure which one does when this authentic Stephanie. The more flashy one thousand words still Very Nice Babur. So Up in the air as to which baffert horse wins this race. But the the prediction that I have for this reason and Eric talking about this agreed with me on this. Is that the fact that Bob Baffert most likely is gonNA run into in this race but Not to only focus on Bob Baffert some other horses. Obviously Breeders Cup Juvenile Winter Storm. The court didn't have the greatest performance. Last start out. The Sanford sent day. He was fourth of five horses. Excuse me four to six horses. Not The Obviously not what you wanted to see from the defending too euro champion coming up but certainly not anything that would keep him from running well in this race in a potentially get getting to the Kentucky Derby. You've also got honor. Ap Son of Honor Code. Who was a really nice made? When a lot of people really like him for John Sheriff's Mike Smith And then you also have the big the big yearling purchase Fort McHenry the three fourths relative. California crump now under new ownership new trainer. Doug O'Neill and Doug is GonNa take a big shot in this spot with Fort McHenry. Both Eric and I are very doubtful on this. But you know admire Dougie for taking a shot here and who knows maybe it will pay off but And also to mention wrecking crew. Fora Peter Miller is also in this. He was stirred Breeders Cup juvenile not in his last night but he was started. Breeders Cup juvenile fourth in the low self utility. Last start out yet. I I definitely agree. I think the bathrooms are the two best race. I can go fantastic. I give more of an edge over thousand work at this distance. They're going a little longer. A kind of flip that good authentic Hatami on a sixteen. He should be fine. I think he's the winner here Obviously thousand words. We talked about him a good amount. I think he's definitely a really good horse so I'm going to focus on a couple of others. I think there's three others in here with a chance. I'm going to throw out four mckenry in seven swag seasonal who Don't even know how he's why he's in this race. I mean I understand why is in this race. It's small small connections trying to get a big success story. It's not gonNA happen so I'm GonNa Start with on repeat. He's a maiden winner in his last start super impressively over at Del. Mar or attend Anita. Excuse me last ball. So it's a bit of a layoff which I don't think he's GonNa put his best foot forward But I think he's GonNa run good in. It'll set him up well for another star probably third or fourth storm in court. I really liked that. Getting back to two turns but once again it's just it's it's very interesting to see that he's he's in this spot in.

"Who already came back and won a stakes next. One broke his maiden last time out as a good candidate for the the withers for his next start further back and Field Express Barrow. Who's been a really consistent down and goal three and a unconquered Lee switched to turf in his next start and won by six lengths of very impressive airforce one to watch out for down the road and he was able to beat this group and like. I said it's it's todd pletcher. People seem to have lost their respects form a little. I certainly am not. I think the sources prime for a huge race dot a really nice post gonna sit the trip Johnny Velazquez in this adult one of my favorite writers of all time. Maybe the greatest of all time when he calls it a career so market analysis. My top pick. I'm going to go chance at for second and Santi for there to rather talkie but I think that's kind of what the the route you have to go here With so much unproven talent here however I will mention two other horses with probably chanted hit the board let me know the aid from the in. Wilkes born has been rather consistent throughout his career Spa City the two for Kern McLaughlin. Who It's if it'd be interesting to see because we haven't touched on this CAIRN McLaughlin if you didn't hear announced today he's retiring from training to become a Louis sizes agent At the end of March. So it'd be interesting to see spot city win this race Get a guaranteed spot in the Kentucky Derby and then I'll have a completely different trainer and based off the owners Dolphin I mean they employ one to two trainers they. They don't employ a lot of trainers in the US and the ones they do they spread out so it'd be very interesting to see if maybe care. Mcglaughlin extended that for another month through SODA. May Have One last crack of all hypothetical of course but definitely interesting plotline Source for to make the Derby another interesting front line plotline that I wanna just quickly mention You know I don't WanNa get into all the recent politics in everything. I could not time for that today. But as eric was like Johnny Velazquez if you did not hear Johnny Velazquez his longtime agent Angel Cordero Up to put this in perspective Eric and I are believe Eric and I are the same age. Angel Cordero had been Johnny Velazquez agent since one thousand nine hundred. That was four years before both Eric and I were born. So that Those who had been a partnership for a long time and You know it was one of those things that it's like That that everyone would think you know. You never think that a partnership like that had lasted for that long would end. But you know that that's the way the business so also worth mentioning that Johnny Velazquez did partways with former agent Angel Cordero and is now going to be moving out with basically horse racing version of Scott. Boris in Ron Anderson. Just wanted to mention that as well moving out. Now we're GonNa talk about some of the racist at California before we get to the big the big three races. I do want to mention the Senate the Santa Isabel and this will feature the return of Donovan who this time will not have to run against a top horse like British idiom or a top horse. Like bast or any of them. It's all her own in this spot. This is very likely going to be where she gets her. Kentucky Oaks points and Does get into that race. No Venetian harbor for her to go against up to this point Entries are not finalized but You know this'll be big for her to get her points and not have to have a Kentucky oaks spot on the line going into Santa Anita oaks against Venetian harbour There's a couple of other good horses industries that are gonNA touch on but Very light very hard to see Donald Loach not winning this race. It's a solid group into looking at the history of race last year the race was cancelled because the sandinistas issues but before that midnight. Visi unique Bella Song Stellar with like. That's that's real on the low Jay. Her name can definitely be right up there with this group in sources behind That should come to face her. Good jettas probably the big one Broker maiden over Some well regarded horses of mainly a Baffert Philly who hurting Muni type belief and was a huge purchase at sales has yet kind of worked out to be a good runner yet but she's been running good races so jeff beatty good deals in. She definitely has talent however Donald J has been running huge racist time and time again. And I think this is going to be her breakthrough and I think she's GonNa easily at herself to that. List of a prestigious winners of this race page on is another one that right Challenger from the Simon Callaghan Barn as well But once again it's IT'S DONALD AS TO LOSE ONLY. She can be herself in the despotic unless.

"Could easily make their way into the Kentucky Oaks Conversation. It's a tough Kentucky. Oaks this year whether or not every single top I mean we've already lost two of the prime contenders for interest in bast. But even that toneless shape who had a huge weekend In winning I think maybe her Fist v race in a row never no matter the number. She's been just lights out. Recently of the runner up from that race spices nice easily could consider herself a Kentucky IOS contender We already talked about Lake Avenue Santa Anita out in California still tons of good horses and I was the fairgrounds finite. Probably your favorite right now. so the. Oaks folks trail is still very strong. So we're these were. This group fits in. It's kind of a bunch of not rejects but horses that are yet to prove themselves on a stakes level alters awards coming off a window in her last start over portrait who was graded stakes placed behind finite and some other really good horses and Sheer Ultra award in a really big race coming from a second last way off the pace to win by just ahead in an allowance race in her last start. She's been pretty in President I he starts of her career and this Rupe as I said not a lot of you know talent on paper she might be the best of the second horse I really like is turtle tracks. She's coming off of her. Last start. I think it was the reset Tampa The the The Sun Coast Sheeran second was coming late but she wants to straits to restrict race or maiden race an allowance race last fall in a lot of people thought she might be a wonder really.

"Tax rate. Another horse who likes to be near the lead worst offer kind of likes to come from just off the pace maybe mid pack which once again boats from my argument with him. I really liked this horse. His maiden win impressed me a lot. I even texted Jack The week of the weather's when they were thinking of maybe running him that if this horse runs in the weather's I might. I might have to go with him. If if you were to win here he would shoot right up my derby list to the top three or four even though this is a one turn race Because he has the ability to move forward. It will only be his second start. And if you wins here it would set up. Mice keeper attorneys Some other options mischievous out starting mentioned tons of speed. Will he be able to carry it a mile? The connections didn't seem so confident after the The win in the soil. So I don't really know I can be competent sixto. The seven is another horse coming. Awesome maiden win. Who really impressed as well. So he's one Montauk. Traffic is a stakes winner at aqueduct. And as I said he likes to come from off the pace and the right setup he should be coming and the ten untitled was a high force from the mark. Cassie Barn Has It kind of lived up to Kassy's expectations but this race does kind of seem fit for him? Based off of pedigree other factors so worse APAs mytalk picking the spot. I'm GONNA go Montauk. Traffic second in sticking around for third untitled does like to run a good race. Just never win it so I'll go him for so before we get out to California. We do just want to hit on one more race in the east coast degree to grade. Three Honeybee down at Oaklawn Park and I did make the comment with Eric. That this race does kind of feel the me very obviously. Unfortunately with the passing of torot she will not be running in this race. This was the the race that they had picked out for her that she would run in and probably get into the Kentucky oaks off of this race so I I. It's not a race. It doesn't have any talent in it but definitely you know. Obviously it feels like there's something missing in this race but to all an Eric introduced this race. I just want to make that point about that. You know this race does feel empty without without the presence of Toronto's so the Honeybee this year it's maybe not is lacking to star power. Obviously that were missing in Toronto's in but it's a group of horse that could easily make their way into the Kentucky Oaks Conversation. It's a tough Kentucky. Oaks this year whether or not every single top I.

"All right here we go. We're back on racing down today. Episode Number Fifty. We got a lot of stuff to get to today. Three fifty three fifty point preparations on the docket for this week. In one hundred Fifty Kentucky Derby points up for grabs three more horses will be on their way to Churchill. Downs weekend. There's also a bunch of other stakes around the country this weekend most notably the grade. Santa Anita Handicap. So we'll get to all those book. I we gotta get to the action from this past weekend in Saudi Arabia and the conversation is coming up at. I've seen it come up in multiple different areas is about the winner of the Saudi. Maximum Security You know that is probably the most the Kentucky Derby incident and you know. I'M NOT GONNA come on here and you know say that the Saudi Cup has anything to do with the decision that was made at Churchill. Downs or anything like that or argue that the disqualification now because he's one twenty million dollars. Saudi Cup shouldn't happen I I am not gonNA come on here. Make that argument I just off you know really looking at it. It's unfortunate that happened because maximum security is really just such a tough horse. And you know there's not enough good things you can say about maximum security and you know that raise really showed that maximum security is one of the best horses in the world and obviously right now. The leader of the pack in the United States for older horse. Right now and be really cool to see this horse competing for your old year and you know depending on where he goes from here. Obviously you know. They already mentioned that. He's not going to Dubai. But just where MAC security goes from. Here I'm excited to see that. And what he has in store you know. I'm sure Eric will have some of his things. Say about maximum security. But that's something not lost museum. Fortunate -ness of the disqualification at the Kentucky Derby. Because you know this is a really really fantastic horse for sure. I mean he's slowly and steadily starting to shed that tag of being the Horse Sector disqualified from the Kentucky Derby even though it will always remember that way. If you were to continue what you did last weekend easily going to be more remembered as one of the better horses heading into this decade in this early part of the century the obviously he's now ten million dollars in earnings in at this stage career. It's only getting go go higher. It'll be interesting to see where he gets brought back. I met in. Saratoga is kind of the midseason point. Four the connections there But honestly I think he's already cemented. His legacy added great horse. Just you know like cigar did way back when of when he won the inaugural Dubai World Cup. Maximum security is going to be able to say the same thing for the Saudi Cup where he'd be a really good group of Horses. I might add Definitely was not lighten any sense I think every horse for the most part Ranta form in the Saudi Cub ibew. Probably the biggest surprise people contend but definitely not be By a quarter of a lengthy Iran. Huge She's also in so many other horses from the race but maximum security Kind of a rough trip was definitely a target especially for teas on Mutual Gustavo. Louisa has had to get created down the stretch. But you work down in that. Horses has tons and tons of heart. I don't really know I've seen a horse. Who Does Not WanNa let him worse by like maximum security does. It's quite impressive. How this works bears down to every time he races and I just think I I I think we all know. He's in pre twenty twenty if he stays healthy yeah. That was another thing that I didn't quite get that opening. Bid Is the fact that you know. Maximum security did all that won the race while Iran Ortiz was basically writing interference. I made the comment to Eric Baxter. Excuse jokers still out there kind of looked like a NASCAR and now you can say all you want about. How you know. Probably wasn't the best rider. You didn't have good character of Iraqis. I thought it was a good strategy on his part to do what he could to be. Maximum security obviously probably definitely in this country If he would probably would have been disqualified but I thought it was good on his part to do his best to win. Win The race. And try to keep maximum-security away because I don't think I if you run that race normally maximum-security just goes by with the rules over there. They run category One rules which unlike in America the disqualification rules are if you preventing a worse from running their best race. You get disqualified. There is. That's worse when when you run interference or not so if mutual Gustavo Iraqis does dat but the horse wins by Lincoln half. It's not a problem. Give what was within the rules so it was a good ride? Bhai Iran It was definitely a little malicious. I certainly Jason Service not lease with IRA. Teaser was on the first things. He made a comment about after the race. In the in an interview shortly after On national television I might add But at the same time that's I mean the races aren't one you know like a track meet where you can necessarily go between the lane. This horse racing and that kind of stuff can fly to an extent maybe a little over the edge. I think especially when acting security job inside. I really started to hurt an inside but I was happy that I read never intentionally drew contact although he was doing some blocking like you said NASCAR ask He never intended to make contact which I think was probably the safest thing and when he when he knew the horses about to go by he kind of backed off on trying to get through so are running more interference so while maybe was maybe a little militias It definitely was good race riding on his part all right so that. That's it for this stuff with the Saudi Cup Stripping back over Cross sees out before we get to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks preparations that you want to highlight a Horse Zulu al folk who is turning into his own. You know I will highlight at about this point last year. This is were bricks and more bricks and mortar was not not saying that Zulu Alpha is going to be the next bricks mortar. Or anything like that. But you know he could do similar things to where it's very likely he's going to do similar things to what bricks and mortar didn't very likely that this is probably the top tier force in the United States. This year. You know at this point last year. Bricks and mortar was a great one Winnipeg World Cup turf and and then he had a great to race. I believe it was either at fairgrounds are one of the tracks Louisiana so to this point Zulu Alpha grade one winner Pegasus World Cup turf now. He's agreed to winner The Mac Ramadan down at Gulfstream. This past weekend. I think Zulu Alpha's in for a really strong really really strong two thousand twenty Keep your eye on him. Come for race like the turf classic the Kentucky Derby Undercard. That's where I would him go but not saying Zulu Alpha is an expert in order. But I'm not saying that he isn't either into Rena. Bricks and mortar was able to have consistent success last year is because all the worst is behind him weren't consistent. I mentioned on the show last week. That Group of forces that Zulu Alpa was facing. He actually used to be a part of that group they never were able to consistently put together strong back. That rates it's bricks. Mortar took it to a new level. Easily able to string together back Multiple consecutive good races in a row. And that's what God in his horse of the year title. And if these keep going the weather going is do. The wealth is going to be able to do the same thing last year Even though I was Kinda surprised after neier introduced the Turks Trinity Series that no horse really emerged from that as premier career force and to be chair. I mean we see that with Dirt horses as well on the on the Derby trail. They don't always shape out after the triple crown trail to be good and that kind of creates inconsistencies in the handicapped division like we saw maybe back Towards the end of maybe before the end of two thousand seventeen that you're got stronger as it went on but nevertheless China look into Alpa. Maybe like an expert in order. I wouldn't be surprised because once again the turf division isn't strong and If I'm going to throw one out there vitality is probably the best grass three year old male out there And I know. The connections are keen. Distract him out so he could be wanted content we know. He has loads talent. So at this point Zulu Alpha is primed at least stay home maleter force because so far. There are no challengers within a mile oven. So I'll also want to mention very quickly. Law Wasn't a good weekend for Dale Rome overall at Gulfstream. He does have a really fine horse in Mr Freeze. You know I talked about him. Pegues World Cup. That was a really fine performance by him. A second place now. He wanted to Gulfstream Park Mile. Go not to do by. He'll run on the good often mile I could see this horse is a horse could potentially get a great one win. I don't think he's a top older horse but he's in that second tier of you know very good horses. That could get a grade two. Maybe you know if favorable circumstances happened upset a great blonde but you know Mr. Freezes that kind of horse that you know. That's a great one race that is GONNA be a viable type horse. Probably doesn't win but he's still very fine horse so some good news out of the deal. Romans burned but on a day. That was supposed to be Denis's moment day. I texted Eric after that race. In you know I was a person who I've been on Dennis's moment since really since I saw him when the earthquake especially after Dale Romans on the show and I had mentioned that I liked Denis before I talked to Dale and after Dale. I love this horse. Something's clearly not right with Dennis's moment I mean you know there's you can lose a race. That's one thing and even. Dale said this. You know losing races one thing. But running last in Fountain of Youth Stakes like that. Dennis's moment is obviously better than running last in a stakes race like that so obviously something's not right with him whether he hasn't fully progressed from his two year old year or could be something physical we don't know They're never gonNA check that out and we'll hear from that one day they figure that out but something is obviously not right with Dennis's moment and he should be a lot better than that and we'll see where they go go with him going forward. I'm not overly optimistic. That he will get to the Kentucky Derby. He's still got a chance at one more preparation if they do decide to go that route with him but not overly optimistic. But there's still a chance you don't tug on Dennis's MOMA BEFORE I go to Mr Freeze del Romans. He said the still can't find out what was wrong with him and maybe he needed the time or maybe he hasn't taken that necessary step forward of two to three years old either way. There's a one more race to kind of prove that he's a derby horse that'll be wherever Romans puts him. I hope it's Bluegrass. That'd be the easiest fought for him and we've seen we've seen horses run poorly in the Fountain of Youth and come back and run a really huge race next time out. Addict of former champion is the first one that comes to mind is saying that Garam just other horses that performed poorly first off of a layoff from their two year old campaign. Brody's 'cause lost. The Tampa Bay became back. One the Blue Rask. So the IT'S NOT. How pressing is heavy from the Romans?.

In the in an interview shortly after On national television I might add But at the same time that's I mean the races aren't one you know like a track meet where you can necessarily go between the lane. This horse racing and that kind of stuff can fly to an extent maybe a little over the edge. I think especially when acting security job inside. I really started to hurt an inside but I was happy that I read never intentionally drew contact although he was doing some blocking like you said NASCAR ask He never intended to make contact which I think was probably the safest thing and when he when he knew the horses about to go by he kind of backed off on trying to get through so are running more interference so while maybe was maybe a little militias It definitely was good race riding on his part all right so that. That's it for this stuff with the Saudi Cup Stripping back over Cross sees out before we get to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks preparations that you want to highlight a Horse Zulu al folk who is turning into his own. You know I will highlight at about this point last year. This is were bricks and more bricks and mortar was not not saying that Zulu Alpha is going to be the next bricks mortar. Or anything like that. But you know he could do similar things to where it's very likely he's going to do similar things to what bricks and mortar didn't very likely that this is probably the top tier force in the United States. This year. You know at this point last year. Bricks and mortar was a great one Winnipeg World Cup turf and and then he had a great to race. I believe it was either at fairgrounds are one of the tracks Louisiana so to this point Zulu Alpha grade one winner Pegasus World Cup turf now. He's agreed to winner The Mac Ramadan down at Gulfstream. This past weekend. I think Zulu Alpha's in for a really strong really really strong two thousand twenty Keep your eye on him. Come for race like the turf classic the Kentucky Derby Undercard. That's where I would him go but not saying Zulu Alpha is an expert in order. But I'm not saying that he isn't either into Rena. Bricks and mortar was able to have consistent success last year is because all the worst is behind him weren't consistent. I mentioned on the show last week. That Group of forces that Zulu Alpa was facing. He actually used to be a part of that group they never were able to consistently put together strong back. That rates it's bricks. Mortar took it to a new level. Easily able to string together back Multiple consecutive good races in a row. And that's what God in his horse of the year title. And if these keep going the weather going is do. The wealth is going to be able to do the same thing last year Even though I was Kinda surprised after neier introduced the Turks Trinity Series that no horse really emerged from that as premier career force and to be chair. I mean we see that with Dirt horses as well on the on the Derby trail. They don't always shape out after the triple crown trail to be good and that kind of creates inconsistencies in the handicapped division like we saw maybe back Towards the end of maybe before the end of two thousand seventeen that you're got stronger as it went on but nevertheless China look into Alpa. Maybe like an expert in order. I wouldn't be surprised because once again the turf division isn't strong and If I'm going to throw one out there vitality is probably the best grass three year old male out there And I know. The connections are keen. Distract him out so he could be wanted content we know. He has loads talent. So at this point Zulu Alpha is primed at least stay home maleter force because so far. There are no challengers within a mile oven.

3 Horses Die in 3 Days at Santa Anita, Prompting Fresh Criticism of Racetrack

"Three three more horses have died within the past week at Santa Anita racetrack bringing the total to forty two more sets at the track since December of twenty eighteen Santa Anita had promised a series of reforms in its operations and animal welfare practices the strong group owners of Santa Anita reached out to KNX offering to come on this program to talk about those reforms that was supposed to happen today but yesterday they cancel the interview and only provided a statement which will read a little bit and park later we do have with us to critics doctor Catherine path is a thoroughbred racehorse veterinarian and owner of Hillcrest meadow at Kline in Harrisburg Pennsylvania and Patrick the twelve who is founder and president of the activist group horse racing wrongs thank you both for joining us and Patrick let's start with you so we hear enough for southern California has been I have been hearing lots lately about course deaths at the Santa Anita racetrack but this is not just something that is is at that track this is something that is an issue all across the country is it not absolutely it's initially why Charles so centimeter has averaged fifty dead horses a year going back to two thousand seven but we have similar numbers throughout the country you know Belmont Park just last year forty four dead Gulfstream in twenty eighteen fifty five dead Charles town West Virginia has sixty dead in twenty eighteen I'm just finishing up my twenty nineteen for your request so those numbers are complete yet but this is an industry wide problem horse racing has always kill courses this is nothing new the only thing that's new here is that they've been exposed all right so Dr cancer pap wanted to ask you why is it so dangerous for these courses but what is it that that's causing this many doubts and and why is it seem impossible to get to a horse racing in general or a race tracks in specific to do something about it well I don't believe that it's naturally all horse racing that result in or causes tons of death there are it's four three thing in many other countries besides the United States a ninety nine point nine percent of the horses that race there do not break down they do not die they do not have catastrophic events so it is particularly unique the United States racing industry right now that we are having the outing basically as Patrick has mentioned of death and more transparency has come across in the industry not just with the public outcry about animals and what happened with in and nida but in general our industry is trying to be more transparent and talk about what's going on we can figure it out and fix it but most of the staff they're coming due to pre existing injuries in these animals have come down to basically that there's something small and it is become something big when they race at high speed so and this is for either one of you either doctor pap or or arrive at Patrick about twelve hi if I'm hearing what the doctors saying this is something that really is unique to the U. S. horse racing industry not so much that it's not nonsense I'm sorry to interrupt but it's nonsense we hear this all the time from the reform minded people and doctor pap is one of those not to say that she doesn't care about animals or care about horses but she does like course racing she wanted to survive we hear this all the time about the U. S. death rate being so much higher I don't know that to be true there is no one like me in France say or in the UK or Australia Hong Kong independently confirming the number so anyone who thinks and horses are not breaking down and dying wait a minute yes but when it but by your own admission since there's nobody you say like you in other parts of the world you don't really know if what doctor Pappas saying he is risen tree you don't know what I'm not a term from a professor of veterinary epidemiology at the university of Glasgow him park and he has to physically set out of Glasgow that another approximately ten in every ten thousand start in Britain and Ireland result in a fatality that was a source and not talk to Pat what is the source for that I you know this call in the industry today glad it is published in pod Matt I pulled up the article it has been done through their data they collect they they have a Jockey Club just like we do right who the Jockey Club here in the U. S. lies about the true death rate they don't count training that's the only count doesn't happen within seventy two hours of injury all tracks do not participate in the database for the Jockey Club it's an industry it's an industry tool and the same is being done in these other countries so if you believe these numbers you take them at their word I'm sorry I don't that's why I've only had an Australian seen it myself I've been to the Melbourne Cup I watch the race name amount of races here as I do there and I can guarantee you that there are less deaths in the U. K. and not to mention there's many less racing and they have season so for a fact there are less deaths will both of you hold it I'm going to ask you both to hold your fire for a few minutes we are going to come back and continue this discussion but before we go for a break I mentioned at the very top that we did get a statement from the this tronic group that owns Santa need although they backed out of being on the program today in park their statement says our Klein athletes of the life blood of their support and their health and welfare is our top priority we are disappointed that we were unable to reschedule our interview with KNX today and anyone that the station is welcome to come to the track for tortious see first hand our commitment and care for courses that train and race at Santa Anita Park KNX in depth continues after this

Who's the Champ?

In The Gate

Who's the Champ?

"Bobby? A halt of the New York hot list is our first guest of two thousand twenty here on the gate now. The horse that won the Breeders Cup dirt bile beating Omaha beach is spun to run and he will be facing Omaha beach again in the Pegasus World Cup. The first major race of two thousand thousand twenty but maximum security will not be there and code of honor will not be there. Maximum security is waiting for Saudi Arabia. The world's richest race the Saudi Cup in February. It's very tempting to make this a political discussion. I'll only do it to the extent of saying with what's going on in the Middle East right now. How do you think that is going to impact whether trainers bring their horses over for the Saudi Cup and or the Dubai World Cup in March or maybe they take a look at that Pegasus again and say maybe we ought to just stay here that that's a very hard question to answer? Ah It's hard to understand how people feel I will say this. I am confident in saying that the people especially in Dubai. We're ruler of the country behind that I think they're going to bend over backwards to provide security and take care of the park I I would hope the same thing's going to happen in Saudi Arabia race and then just not become a outer tech or anyone but that is a question question that you just can't answer. I think it's very hard. It's an individual decision to a Lotta funny. I understand when people go play a lot of people who have no dog in the adviser to come up with answers of morally questions. And what they're gonNA do when not to you. Gary West was all set to run his voice Independence when it was nine nine billion dollar I. He was happy to take the fourbillion winter. Share the person. Just go to the Middle East but when you cut the first out of nowhere to three billion winter I'll get one point five billion something like that and you have just wants to you know once in a lifetime could easily win ten million dollars and probably turn around that month and win a twelve million dollar right I. It's hard because this is an expensive sport and as much as these people arrested of of money that goes into this so You understand it as of now. I haven't heard anyone saying they're going to change their mind about going. I'm sure people are a little bit nervous but I mean let's be frank. I think anytime you over. There is probably reason to be nervous. So it's just an individual decision and I wouldn't chastize anyone. Whatever they they decide because it feels like them? That's their call. It's not it. I make my own decision on my life. You make your own decision on your own life and I think that's the way it goes. Oh by the way. I think you're under selling the Saudi Cup. I believe the purses twenty million dollars. Well it's ten million the whip you get ten billion but it's it's one that that that's what I'm saying he gary West is looking at it. I will get sent. Don't get out of the home and billion dollars if I say in that term so you can when you look at it now. You basically have to win the Pakistan that in line with at one point I for share of the first compares to the ten million that he will win. Take home for winning the Saudi Cup where he will be the favorite and a one term mounting great definitely. I Dunno betting Saudi Arabia. But I know American pools. He's GonNa behavior and you running for stabbing tons of money. That's a pretty compelling nonetheless in the Pegasus World Cup you do have. Some horses is with some credentials including higher power. The Pacific Classic winner. We mentioned Omaha Beach. roadster for Bob Baffert is aiming toward the Pegasus. And you will be there. How do you see this first? Major race of the year shaping up that force right now in training maximum very doubt after that case to be made then Omaha Aubenas bunch of wrong especially violent eight might be the second and third bout with McKinsey right there with them so when you get fun to run and Omaha Beach I think he got a pretty darn good race. I mean it's interesting possibilities. Are the horses doing nominated at the box He's done. I'm very well. This is of course. A lot of people east might have remembered with Chad Brown Barrasso. And you know he was good you know. He got coming up. In the minor spot that West to John Adler Verona's ray thing all of a sudden. He's winning all these steaks and eat it. You can't east to Churchill even lost or any blocks. We'll see if he's going to be the ones that they decided to send into the race. It'd be a good one back wizar- people know this story. That fifteen thousand dollars who ran against maximum security and the world's most famous Amos. Sixteen Thousand Dollars Eight lamer and it'll be in there. I think it'll be a big competitive fourth. It doesn't I think have the superstar. One runner arrogate powerpoint chrome Omaha beaches in that category But it's interesting. It's good to get back into talking about racing and Bobby Hall. Nobody better to do it with so. Thank you so much barry. Thank you always chat that with you so when we come back here on the gate. The site of the world's first million dollar horse race is short on dollars and short on time time to secure them. Welcome back to win the gate in July of two two thousand. Nearly twenty years ago Churchill. Downs home of the Kentucky Derby purchased Arlington Park in Chicago for nearly seventy one million dollars. Arlington's owner Dick Duchossois had closed the track in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight and nine hundred ninety nine saying that he could not compete with other gambling businesses. The opened again in May may of two thousand presumably with the knowledge that a sale was coming at the time. Churchill was in something of an arms race against the stronach group. When it came to buying up tracts the idea was to create networks of tracks for simulcasting and cross promotion of races and Events in nineteen ninety nine Churchill bought calder race course in Miami and Hollywood Park in California and then bought fairgrounds in New Orleans in two thousand and four? This was meant to counter the STRANA group which began its buying spree in nineteen ninety eight with Santa Anita then they added Gulfstream Park in Florida. Both major Maryland tracks Laurel and PIMLICO as well as golden gate fields and Portland Meadows and Oregon stronach versus Churchill. Wasn't exactly the Cold War. But the battle lines had been drawn it it seemed that Churchill was the first to blink Churchill dumped Hollywood park like a hot potato in two thousand five just six years after buying it. Churchill said at the time that California has forsaken racing and its needs reports came from fairgrounds in two thousand thirteen that the turf course was too dangerous juris to race and that the track had been poorly maintained ever since the churchill purchase at the same time Churchill was trying any maneuvering possible to get out of its obligation obligation to operate racing at calder. Eventually the STRANA coned Gulfstream Park worked out a lease agreement to run the calder meet in October and November this year. Two Thousand Twenty is the final year of Churchill's obligation to lease the meat after which it may convert the track into a shipping logistics center. Or something like that.
