Kathy welcome to the airplane gigs. Podcast hang smack. Thanks for having me now. Really astute and longtime listeners may actually remember kathy's name or it might sound a little bit familiar. That's because well she's australia and she has been known to hang out with A few of our australian friends from plane crazy down under grant and steve. So it's really exciting to have kathy. This is a an very interesting very amazing book. And we're going to start off talking with kathy and then come back to the news after that. So let's let's get right into it. A kathy in the book you tell us the story of i believe ten women that all have really fascinating remarkable stories. And we'll talk a little bit about how this came together and in how you found these stories but to give our listeners. An idea of the kinds of stories that we can find in this book. Maybe let's talk a little bit about the first australian woman to fly around the world in a single engine airplane solo. Maybe give us a brief version of gabby story. Thank he Gabby cannot in non nine nine was a single mother of two children. And she had this burning desire to fly around the world for probably some personal reasons. Various reasons Who knows what caused pushes somebody to do these things and she drew back on. A mortgage bought a single engine. Saratoga had kitted out with long range fuel tanks and everything that she could afford and think that she needed borrowed some survival gear and hit it off in august nineteen eighty-nine. She intended to be gone for three days and she came back. Nine thousand nine days later so it was quite a remarkable fates and it's some was a long trip. Yeah yeah and she more or less followed. Amelia earhart erhart's route but as to her motivation. It seems like she was doing it for the the love of flying in. Not for some promotional purpose or to seek notoriety particularly. It seemed like it was kind of a humble flight. She had absolutely no desire for the publicity other than the fact that the publicity provided sponsorship. So that was the only reason she got tangled up with that side of it but became a big thing and because the country was pretty gripped by this housewife fit. Who's at forty is some. Lift the kids with some friends some reliable friends and taken off around the world and She was intrigued by merely earhart actually and she loved immediately hop story. She'd been flying across the pacific with a guy named jim. Hazelton who's well known. Australian aviator and when i go to majority or the marshall islands he said this is about where we think. Amelia earhart went missing and it really got gebbie thinking again about it. And she dived into any books she can find on earhart and other female aviators when she got back and that really sped or on say. Someone gets a good idea but forgetting to do that trip. I think it was about finding soft confidence. And she just felt she really had to do something for herself to take control of her life and you know how it can be being a wife and a mother

One Page At A Time, Jess Wade Is Changing Wikipedia
"So today. We're speaking with just weighed in experimental. Physicists at college. London and every night for the past three years just has written a wikipedia entry about a woman or poc scientists. And if this sounds like a big commitment that's because it is. But what motivates. Just keep with. It is the possibility of using wikipedia to combat the bias. In science. We see it in who gets through peer review. We see it in who gets big papers. Cited we see who gets big grants. We see it and who wins awards. And that means that the people that we celebrate and champion incredibly homogeneous and when wikipedia launched the internet was a very small space and it was very dominated by particular types of people. This kind of you know. Tech bro attitude that we still see in silicon valley and places like that majority white majority western a lot from north america some from western europe and those were the first people to start using it engaging in contributing to wikipedia backed according to a twenty twenty study. Eighty seven percents of wikipedia. Contributors are men with media includes wikipedia wick wicky quote a bunch of other platforms and for just this bias in. Authorship creates a bias in who gets a biography so this huge systematic bias against women against people of color against people from the global south against people who are from any kind of particular marginalized group. So it's kind of two things when we have a very diverse editorship and to the things they writes about a not very diverse and this is obviously impacted by the way that science celebrates people and who took about who we define as notable. Right right just to confirm by. Now you've written what nine hundred articles for the site. Oh no no. How many i've written i've written one thousand two hundred one thousand two hundred whatever so sub usually get a bit excited so obviously that's not three hundred sixty five times three so sometimes i get a little carried away but in general i try and stick to one a day sometimes. Yeah yeah. I mean. I've been going for three. Yes so i've done a pretty good job that in those i. We thought a lot about how to ask you this question. Because twelve hundred articles is an extraordinary accomplishment as far as contributing to this encyclopedia. And so the question we're going to go with is if you could build a quarantine bubble with some of the people that you've written about living or deceased who would you include and why should question so so for sure. I'd have to have some of the people developing vaccines enough air. The person who created the oxford vaccine which is is the vaccine this just been approved for use in the uk. A viral vector vaccine is a phenomenal professor. Sara gilbert sara gilbert has had this kind of fascinating rich directory working on the development of a whole bunch of different vaccines that can walk in different corona viruses and kiss kubat. I don't know if you've come across any of your reporting. She's she's a young african american women who is at the national institute of health and had walked back scenes for for sars and mers. So has this really great legacy but also alongside. I kind of scientific research. An extraordinary publication list works to support people from undeserved communities and walks to really amplify the voices of scientists who too often overlooked but also to support young people and getting into an ethic about science. So that people at different ends of that curric- his kizzie is still very young. Where saratoga established professor but both of them have this kind of extraordinary pathway to really ultimately creating the thing. That's going to save the entire world so suddenly. If i if i had according to about they would be in it. I think that. I mean how many people might out in my quarantine babo because i could keep going. There's no official guidance but the often cited wisdom is less than ten. I'm so primed and ready to tell you stories about everyone. I'm so excited about them. So mainly because i have been. She's someone who i wrote about right at the beginning of my wikipedia. A mathematician who gladys west. She was born in virginia in the thousand nine hundred and she went to college. She went to a historically black college and university to study maths. She goes off in becomes the teach She then eventually what the us government. Wes she did the early computations and calculations for gps so for all of the technologies that almost everything that we do day to day relies on. Now you know you get in your car keys your phone. You try and navigate took particular location. You use the technology that gladys west created. And when i made gladys west page in two thousand eighteen is really hard to find. Information about. Her book is what for the us government so lots of things are adopted. A couple of months. After i put the page live so after i'd finished writing it and put it onto wikipedia. She was selected by the bbc is one of the top one hundred women so she went into the kind of top one hundred women in the world for any intentional creation. Contribution ebba and when you're on a web page like fat when you're on a page so much traffic and insight people hop over to the wikipedia page really quickly so you could just see the numbers of page views of of the wikipedia. Page going up and up and that meant that more and more people contributed to it so grew story grew. How did that make you feel. I just loved it. I was reflecting on this a lot with with my parents lockdown wife. I kept going live. I kept doing this. And i find nothing more rewarding honestly than seeing other people get recognized then champion for what they've done so absolutely love to have quarantine bubble that so many things that i want us. Yeah and you're collecting. I suppose historical information across different websites and books to write these biographies. Has it ever feel like time travel. Yeah completely does feel like time travel. It's it's so it's so interesting. The things that i find kind of thrilling and exciting now feels such a kind of privilege in a rush to be able to get access to all of the resources that we can do. Now you know online libraries. Nine archives sites archived magazines scientific journals extraordinary places that that turn to for this and there are times when you just feel like fantastic achievement. So so if you see in a lot of the world's when women get married they take their partner's name so sometimes it's quite difficult to find out things about their lives if they got married and all of their publications in this new name. And when you find that one link that one connection that tells you that maiden name and then you can go back and find their phd thesis or who was there examining all this extra level of information. So when i get to that. I'm like jump off the sofer like this is great and say yeah. It's completely like a portal into another world. Right i mean. I've chills just listening to you. Talk about this kind of forensic reconstruction of people's lives and who they were outside of who. They married or other kinds of societal markers of that. Yeah a big part of it. I think a big part of my efforts wikipedia. Who i've met the people that we've trained editor phones is to not just make pages about women no make pages about people of color but to make them as good as the comparable page would-be about a white man. Yeah yeah you've been amazing way of connecting all these dots. I really appreciate hearing that I wanna ask you one one last thing. Which is i know that in a lot of ways just talking to you. It sounds like this project is part of such a bigger desire to see science really include nbc driven by all kinds of people. And what do you think it will really take to bring more women and poc's into science so that they stay. Oh such a good question and such a huge one. I mean they're very preliminary simple things that low hanging fruit. If you will know why we don't already have in place you know proper care and support for people who have caring responsibilities so whether that's you know elderly parents or sick parents or especially now in the pandemic who seeing the importance of the childcare and how that skin influence women scientific careers if they're having to work from home but i think more than that we need to really look a scientific institutions and ask really critical questions about why people are leaving. Why do we see. So few black professes. Why do we see so few women in position of leadership. Why do lgbt he. Plus scientists not feel comfortable being out when they're in the scientific workplace and then really put money to and take action to address those individual needs. But i think from a kind of how you get more diverse people into science. I really honestly think the answer is improving our education systems and really support our teachers better. Pay them as well as we pay are bankers so that they stay and so that they create kind of inspiring science lessons. Then go out and got this next generation to come in who keep pushing for this change that we want
Cuomo, de Blasio urge federal restrictions on flights from UK to New York
"The brakes on flights from the U. K. As England heads into its strictest lockdown yet due to the fast spreading Corona virus variant, we need the federal government to step up here and ban all travel from the United Kingdom to the United States of America. I'm obviously specifically most concerned about the three airports serving New York City. It is time to stop the half measures. Governor Cuomo had a different take just test all international travelers before entry. Held the airlines. You have to test them before they get on a plane to come to this country.

The Next Generation
"Recently. The washington post published an article about how young adults twenty-somethings called generation z. Are creating a real shift in how viewers connect with sports. And how many connect with sports if you think of the traditional ways of consuming sports you root for a team you watch and attend their games. You might be completely disconnecting from generation z. As an example the post cites. Espn's internal data that says that the percentage of twelve to seventeen year old stick and ball fans who call themselves. Avid fans has dropped from forty two percent ten years ago to thirty four percent today. What if i was to tell you that young people care more about what an athlete binge watches on net flicks. Then what he or she thinks about the next opponent or that viewers might not care about the athletes next opponent at all only that the athlete is a culturally significant. Figure if that sounds ridiculous to you then you might not understand this new generation of consumers. But if you're a decision maker stewarding the future of this sport you'd better learn to understand these jen's ears and give them what they want or you won't have a sport left to oversee now. The washington post article talked about gen z as relates to stick and ball sports. But we're going to do is spend this time talking about how horse racing relates to generation z. And what leaders in this sport can slash should do in order to reach them to do that. We have invited guests from a number of different viewpoints. I we have a racing executive looking to market his product. He is gregory. Vincent who is the vice president of marketing at gulfstream park. Next we have to young people with us. One became so hooked on this sport that he's now going through the race track industry program at the university of arizona. He is michael sand duly and full disclosure. His father matt has been a longtime espn event producer. Our third guest is madison. Bregman the founder and ceo of girls spelled with a z. At the end she consults with clients trying to reach young people. Young girls in particular. According to her linked in page she's worked with a number of clients including the nfl and she's the perfect person for this discussion because she can self reflect if you will on trends involving generation z. So welcome to all three of you. Let's start with mattie when it comes to sports in general how would you describe the differences between what appeals to gen z irs versus older generations. What degen's ears care about. Yeah i think the big thing is that where older generations would sit down and watch an entire football baseball basketball games. This generation is so much more driven by watching clips or highlights. The way that we're consuming it with that. Being said is different too because we're not watching it on tv watching it on mobile devices on different platforms like twitch and and snapchat instagram. And really the way that we're interacting with teams and players as different as well where older generations once again. We're fans of specific teams because you grew up in that city or whatever have some kind of connection to it and this generation more fan of individual players can so for example. If i'm a huge fan of baker mayfield. I may not necessarily love the cleveland browns. But i liked baker and would wear a skirt near water. Whoever it may be michael san duly. You've heard what she just said about your generation. This is your generation. How does that jibe with your thinking as you were being attracted to horse racing. Well horse racing is the number one sport in my heart. But i but i'm a fan of all sports so i completely agree with matt in the sense that our generation likes players rather than teams a lot of my friends like lebron or curry and so on in horse racing. You can kind of do that. You pick your hero for the year for lack of our term. Unfortunately nowadays everybody gets sent to orderly and this year you've built a brand of this year you could arguably make the case for to the law in tis. The law garnered a lot of fan interest because he came from a grassroots fail. I think it was the saratoga. Select that nolan in toga. Bottom out of and he grew into this the big story line. And that's what everybody likes. Everybody likes a big story. That's what attracts fans.

"And he testifies against the four guys who ended up going to the gallows over this robbery murder and so the Saratoga Guy, his name is Adam Perello he spends. Eleven or twelve years in jail for his part in the crime he's released in August. He comes back to Saratoga. Springs. Gunned down in September shot full of holes dumped at the hospital so and it's kind of a long too long probably to tell on A. It's a fascinating story. Tokyo loudest to get these books. Gun, running out of time here Greg. But now that your second one gangster's Paradise GonNa, give us an overview of that. Will Gangster's paradise is the story of the gamblers and Gangsters Insert Toga Springs from prohibition Kief over. Still. The first book is kind of historical look at frankly more interest of your from Saratoga and it has the story about Ross team, but it really tells more about circle is history a gangster's paradise cells. There's a chapter in there about fixing horse races how they used to do. It tells the story of the white houses gambling with Lansky in Joel Donnas. Fellow tells the story of the Kief our committee and the local investigation tells about that murderer the guy from Montreal and then there's a chapter in there. That's all about the various guys that came in during the time that they didn't necessarily own a share the casinos. Only Madden would come here. He's on the cover of the book. FBI's public enemy number one he was chased through Saratoga Springs Alvin carpets at the time the two guys that. Offered to be go-betweens the kidnappers in the underworld. If necessary, those two guys always used to vacation in Saratoga, I kinda tell their little bit of their stories. So that that's what gangster's paradise is. It tells all about prohibition with focus on Saratoga, springs and sort of. Prohibition agents, some of the stories that every community I think has these where the prohibition agents would go in and then the neighborhood would. Sight them off the locate local police would have to go in and rescue from the local speakeasy. So. It's kind of..

"So you know it was just different times and I tell people in Saratoga looked it worked for the gambling all those years Saratoga might a died as a community now because it brought so much money that it was able to survive and it almost did one after kief our came through. They had the investigation here up in Saratoga the count almost did it go under? So there's a lot of lean years in the fifties and sixties seventies in Saratoga Springs rich rebounded sends it again, it's a mecca of. Tourism again so I I didn't really realize that KIEF offer commission looked at the situation in Saratoga Springs I didn't really realize that. We're jumping way forward. Now that's true. We've gone from all. Right. So let's play a little bit. Okay. Prohibition comes allow. What happens during prohibition? There's even more money to be made by rusty and all these guys are already ensconced and have joints and everything it. So now prohibition unless you're halfway between New York City and Canada so there had been action probation. ranked. So Saratoga Springs is essentially the midpoint between New York City in Montreal in it sits right on the bootleg trail, which it interstate eighty seven is what you can see on a map today but there's a smaller road that was the primary roads called route nine, and that was the bootleg trail allowed people don't know this but northern New York specially in the early years. Of Prohibition made more arrests more seizures than any other district in the country because that liquor was just flowing over the border from Montreal in Quebec and certainly sits go ahead Greg I have an idea the state of New York should have some historical markers and mark out the bootleg trail Brown handed from the border down to New York City that would be interested wouldn't it? I think they should I think I just had that thought. I have these thoughts jumping by I. GotTa get him out. So the bootleg trail comes right through Saratoga Springs and actually ran right directly behind the police station. So all of that liquor came down the local community kind of develop their own organized crime group here in Saratoga and was led by guy named Louis Farrakhan, and he had influence in Saratoga up to the border over to like UTICA area. So upstate ADIRONDACKS, area, New York He. Was Pretty Powerful. It kind of kept the violence out of Saratoga Springs with few exceptions though in the twenties during Prohibition Nats when Lansky Luchino Joe Don us when those guys started to come up and they started taking interests in these gambling places. So like you were talking about in Kansas City on the outskirts of town, they would have these carpet joints while Saratoga. Springs city. Is Actually, thirty two square miles but the downtown is just a small harbour, which is where all of the people live out by Saratoga, which is still within the city they built a bunch of carpet joints like you said. So they had the benefit of having the city police in their pocket, but they were sort of five or ten miles outside of town where they could kinda gamble in be left alone in these plush joins and at the time they were spending. Hours eight hundred,.

"Now in the newspaper is right across the street from the station and they must have got tipped off as a reporter writes the whole story says it. It were running down the street and one of them trip to drop the poker chips all on the sidewalk though they scattered all over my head to pick them all up. So. Couple of interesting things about this is they steal the evidence right out of the police station and three weeks later, the police go rate another joint in sees back all of the evidence that was stolen from. Week. One of the guy, one of Ross teens underline things a guy named, Rachel? Brown. Was the headman at this place on. South. Broadway this raid took place in July of nineteen. Nineteen. Rachel Brown in September or October was part of the guys that fixed the nineteen nineteen world series he got indicted for fixing for the black socks game. So in Saratoga Springs before that black SOx scandal. There's some evidence that that conspiracy was sort of developed insert over springs at the Brook involving the guys including the manager of the Brook Ferocity. Those are the guys that got arrested they. So they were gambling in. Saratoga in July and by world series time you're in Chicago fixing. I thought that was kind of an interesting little coincidence. Yeah. I would say that that plot was hatched up there. A rusting was up there and other people connected to that. They had just hats at plot out overnight they had seven. Series of months and sort of had to send out the reformers to find out what players might be amenable to taking bribe who was mad and know those gamblers professional gamblers. They are constantly trying to get sources into professional sports. That's why they have such rigid rules about no association in joints. For example, they'll have a list of when they come to a city I know at one time with the posing teams. Came to Kansas City. There's a series of about five joints. It they were told do not go into those joints and of course, some of because we caught some of ability but but you know there's like an attraction kind of fast lifestyle, young athletes they got beautiful loose.

"He Event Morse eventually died in a man named Richard Canfield, took it over. They call it the Canfield casino today, it's owned by the city, and Canfield actually turned into an even better location. He bought the property around the area put some Italian Gardens in added a restaurant and they would call the place in Monte Carlo of America. So it was the place to come gamble one of the hotels call the porch, the million dollar mile where all the millionaires of the country would come do their business in the summer. So Saratoga had this reputation as being a wonderful occasion town amount of visitors came that spent money. There would sustain the town for the rest of the year and a lot of it was centered on the gamble. Now of course when you allow one person to gamble other people are GonNa want again. And make even a longer story short. Eventually, the town fathers said listen we can have the high end gambling at the Canfield casino, but we just can't have all these dives around town. So they started to shut down all the gambling places around town in the mayor had a gambling joint right on the main street. He got into a political battle with the state senator eventually lost the pressure they put on Canfield for him to give up in nineteen zero seven was his last year. Now I tell you all that to tell you this Saratoga then went clean for about ten years. Until Arnold Roasting. Leonard Winter again to get Arnold. Rothstein. It would be a natural. You know the big gamblers in New York City would look up to this Mecca of gambling it with all those rich people come at the end. It would just be a natural has guard drawing. Those guys is they can smell at buddy for miles hundreds of miles off. Yeah. Yes. So Rothstein he had been coming since one, thousand, nine, hundred, four. And he actually pawned his wife's jewelry in Saratoga Springs because he had a sure bet. He was he was married at the judge's house right in town and when he pawned his wife's jewelry, he went made the bat and then he went got his wife's jewelry. So I tell you that whole story about more seen. Canfield. Just to kind of set the stage because what they did for corruption and graft, they would pay the townspeople like they would donate to charities your church needed new.
"saratoga" Discussed on Gangland Wire
"Mo- at Gangland wire by me a cup of coffee shot in a bears as times. I have on the line today on zoom. So we'll be on youtube as well as on the podcast here if you're listening on the podcast, a retired police officer. Greg Bates retired as a chief, a place of Saratoga Springs New York. is written two books about the dark seamy underbelly absurd togas brings Gregg welcome.

We'll talk about them more later on. But I as all these listeners know Greg I'm retired copper too. So tell us a little bit about your career law enforcement. Gary Well, thanks for having me. I spent twenty five years enforcement. I started when I was twenty one years old started in. BURLINGTON. Vermont. Actually in beaten at work there for a short time before I got hired by the Sir Toby. Springs. Police Department and I'm born and raised Saratoga. Springs fifth-generation my family been there for five generations and. decided to go back home and become a police officer. Want to be you know regular routine patrol worked in the Narcotics Unit? For. Several. Years and. After about eleven years or so and patrol and narcotics I ended up you know working my way up the chain Assistant Chief, and then finally I became chief in two, thousand, twelve or two thousand thirteen was chief for six years, and then I retired last year so. Chief I think nationally, the average is three years ago. You did pretty good double the national average on being cheap ablaze and. I couldn't retire initially. So I had to wait till I get. Hit you gotTa gone. That was part of it for sure early. I enjoy it. Generations Togan work in my hometown. So go I just one point I decided, hey, there's more to life than being a police officer. Now decided to pull the plug pursue some other options well as all the listeners out there people that know me pretty well off a lot of them that I did the same thing after twenty five years I just decided I wanted to do something else. Maybe I should have done when I was younger I went to law school. Practice Law for I got into this creative endeavor, writing books and making.
Interview with Jim Seimas Sports Editor of the Santa Cruz Sentinel
"A very special guest the sports editor for the Santa Cruz Sentinel 23 time Associated Press sports editor award-winner Jim seimas, Jim. Welcome to the show off you drop. Thanks for having me. Appreciate it Jim and I have had the awesome opportunity of meeting each other in a couple of different capacities over the last year or so first. I met you as an intern for the pajaronian wage when I was reveley scholar studying under Brad kava at Cabrillo and then later, you know in my role of sports and Information Specialist at Cabrillo and you obviously still with the Sentinel we wanted to be on the show today because Danny and I are both making money in our careers as writers, you know, we do writing here and there and I guess you could say that we had an innate interests in people who not only right but also write for the Sentinel because we've had on Ryan Masters before a former Sentinel writer who body surfed at wage. Rick's back in I think 2006 that Joe is that the year that he at Mavericks something like that. I'd have to double-check his old writings, but it was early mid two thousand. This may be late home or remembering and Ryan was an amazing interview. He was really fun and we kind of learned our lesson that when it comes to having guests on the show, you really want to look for people who are comfortable using their words took a story and who have a lot of experience kind of funneling down their information, but for somebody like me who grew up reading Hunter Thompson and a lot of writers that came originally from a sports writing background. I've always had this this Romanticism if you will of of what a sports writer is and that was kind of pushed ahead by working for Tony Nunez who was at the time the sports editor at the potter onia now, he is the managing editor and you know working with you and meeting Julie and leading one and I guess it's really cool meeting these people who spend dead. The the bulk of their time living in sport and and kind of articulating and taking sport out and a big part of what I've tried to do during my time to Cabrillo is digitized r-sport make them available for streaming online. Mostly for the purpose of trying to let more people get a chance to a common experience that activity as we enter a world following this covid-19 Choice. It's not following yet. But has we live in this kind of post covid-19 world the time before fans will be allowed back to watch sports happen will probably come after Sportz get back underway, which means that people like us are all of a sudden going to be really pushed back to the Forefront and be creating this bridge to connect people with this activity that they truly love and care for or players or teams or whatever. So kind of from that launching point. Where where did you first get started as a writer and what made you decide that that way? Are you were going to you know, keep the bills paid? Was funny cuz I interviewed so many kids that are college committed and asked what they're going to major in and half of them don't know and I'm fine with that. But I and then there's other kids who do they knew in fifth grade that I wanted to be a sportswriter. Excuse me. I have some allergies here. So I, every now and then around fourth fifth grade page and initially wanted to be like the San Francisco Giants announcer and there's only two of them and I know like connection to baseball whatsoever other than being a fan and I kind of even figured out that age like hey there I you know X ball players are getting these jobs. You're not going to get one and then, you know, just taking radio television type stuff and you know if I had a face or voice for neither, so I just kind of jumped into you know, a fifth grade. We did a little writing project. Would that where we had our books published or bound at least and I can't remember it was unbeknownst to me boss. So maybe in a contest and I wasn't a very good writer, but it won an award and I was very happy about that. I still have that book in my basement. I would like to say it was probably like Game of Thrones before Game of Thrones happened, but far simpler only three pages. So, you know, I did my own artwork for it with you know, drawings and swords and blood. Anyway, that was awful. I was hooked. I obviously don't like didn't read recently like a large audience at all, but I have so much fun writing that I really enjoyed creative writing in junior high school besides that my writing was absolutely atrocious growing up all my papers were covered in red ink from the teachers and that kind of was like the kitchen me ask to like. Hey, let's let's try harder at this. Let's try and figure out how to construct a sentence a little bit better and and your thoughts and I'm specimens. I'm still battling today, but I remember I try not to be sports editor wage. Junior High and the junior high paper is pretty much all song dedications and this and that and very little of substance but I got beat out for that position and took still enjoyed writing and then I did I did a couple of years on my high school paper at Westmont high and Campbell. And again, I did poorly in this like a British literature class. So I actually took off journalism twice you're only allowed to take it once but I knew that's what I was going to go into and you know, so and after that I went to West Valley College in Saratoga and I did far too many semesters on their page Church went to San Jose State did far too many semesters on their paper. I wasn't really like set on graduating. I was having so much fun on each step. Excuse me, boss. So on each stamp learning so much, you know when you were
Final Derby Dress Rehearsals
"The favourite for Saturday's travers stakes is the Belmont stakes winner Tis the law, the owners of the law, a group of fairly regular guys from the Saratoga area they go by Saka. Toga stables are the same guys who owned funny side the winner of the two, thousand, three, Kentucky Derby and preakness they showed up to each triple crown race in a yellow school bus, not a limo. It was a scene to which many of us could relate but I'm going to give you a comparison of two other. Owners of horses running in Saturday's travers they are and Lori Hall who owned the Third Place Finisher in the Belmont Max Player and Orlando and Jonathan Noda who liked their travers entrant I line are the longest of longshots George Hall is the founder of a Hedge Fund, the Clinton Group that company's assets reached a high of five and a half billion dollars in two thousand, sixteen. Orlando Noda is a thirty one year old trainer who co all of his horses with his brother. Jonathan who's in the car business? George Hall and his wife Lori sold a six level. Manhattan penthouse in two thousand seventeen for somewhere around thirty eight million dollars. Orlando notice biggest return on investment so far has been the horse not loves a fight who not claimed for ten thousand dollars in May of two, thousand nineteen and whose win a month later represented his trainers I ever. T loves a fight won four races for his trainer and finished second last week in the John Morrissey at Saratoga. You. Get the idea Max player for George and Lori. Hall won the withers stakes back in February and finished third in the Belmont. STAKES IN JUNE FIRST LINE FOR ORLANDO. Noda just earned his first win in four tries and he's returning on only ten days rest to take on an imposing field. But if his trainers story is any harbinger, don't count first line out and we are pleased to welcome to win the game for the first time the trainer of First Line Orlando Noda what went into the decision to turn this horse around in just ten days. The horse came out of it good and I nominated him prior to even run especially. Like figure that especially wasn't GonNa go I was I was GONNA test my luck there and restaurant him because. The horse had shown me talent ever since I had him and I think got strike while the iron is hot right now and everything is just clicking on all cylinders. So I. Think we're just going to give it a go is not every day that we can have a three year old peak at the right time via because of this corona virus that maybe I might might just be able to pull off the upset and get my derby points that that I high horse up about the beginning. You would said to a couple of racing aficionados over the winter that you had a derby horse and first line what made you think that then Oh no the horses super talented it from the first time that we breathed him. We knew we had something special. I'm not the lightest of riders and horses just noting on track with me and I just can't picture it. Any other way because everything has played out to where it should as he broke his. Maiden here in Saratoga and I think the past two races, six furlongs, it was just the the too short for him for his long strident. He just went comfortable and those fractions buying the mollering Nathan not many horses hold up biting the whole time that they are at the top of the stretch hometown in first line and they've been at it. Right from the START I line on the outside pokes ahead and front hometown continues to battle down at the rail. Now, they're at the eighth bowl it is first line and hometown go to battle for a mile and a furlong here first line hud and front hometown not giving up they come for the finish and first line is first under the wire. Race I'm wondering if he's even cooled out yet from that race, I mean that was affirmed and Alydar Rier Dan Against Jaipur was neck and neck for a mile and an eighth I mean, how do you think that part of a racist going to affect him the ten days notwithstanding? Even fresh I'm not doing much with him and. Keep Afresh to the to the race. Then you gotta show up on the race checking in, and that's how he is all game once it gets onto the track. IS A. Very level-headed. Once once he gets into training just like train I'm just giving just. Keep them -freshing raider fire. For for the drivers.
"saratoga" Discussed on The Final Furlong Podcast
"Ellen Degeneres you're talking about has anybody ever said anything to you? Nice about her ever I knew somebody who worked for her. And she she was tough but I always thought it was that I always read it as that kind of thing where you know to be to be female to be a pioneer to be the first sort of out female television personality like you need a tablet a really thick skin and not take any crap from anybody I I was surprised she's not a warm and fuzzy character, but you know neither David Letterman. I thought it kind of went with the and I think back to just the portrayal of talk show hosts in media whether you're talking about the you know Garry shandling show or all the way back to the king of comedy I think that job we personally Last thing I thought I was going to be doing on the show today. I've it was coming to defend Ellen Degeneres and I'll probably get canceled even just for saying these coming for they're coming for the leftist. But I always thought that tip to be that on. And look even our jobs I, think we feel at subtypes to be when when you're that on sometimes you know you're not it's it's a little bit like a stick of butter, right? Like you're cutting off pieces of the of the stick of butter to to be positive to have good energy and to just be on all the time and the idea that you wouldn't be on for your staff flight. I. Mean. Isn't that what the money is for? I don't know maybe maybe I have it also read all the stories hopefully there's nothing too awful to I've missed that but what's about it? But I I will. I will do that. So let me let me just get out ahead of myself and say I don't know what I'm talking about here about this situation. I'm just talking generally about the idea of talk show being on versus up. It doesn't surprise me that they would have dark side and we've seen this in many real and fictional house over the years. But I guess, I, guess this became a bridge too far in your perspective. Yeah. It's. It's terrible the the thing that's very interesting about this is that the man who's replacing her? Is arguably as bad if not worse. James. Corden. Is hase's in the UK and I rarely say anything about another broadcaster very very rarely he's not a pleasant man. He just isn't and and that's that you can like illegal. They're own you his show. He's a very good actor. But with him and Ellen. That point that you made about having to be on when you're on the air. You don't WanNa come on and and bring your problems to show. You don't WanNa come on and burden anybody. We're here to to try and distract people and we're try inform and entertain our audience but we all have burdens and we all have issues and wonder. If. For a show like Ellen's. Two hours a day isn't it daytime TV? So she's doing a two hour show five days a week. If the only way you can do that doing that. Zany. Quirky. Sort of nonsense coming out dancing onto the stage like an idiot. If the only way you can do that and be Super Nice. The whole way through is if you have been faking it all your life. But that's the only way you can do to our show like that five days a week is that you have just been faking it. The whole way through because nobody can be can be like this. and. It's just it's wild how I mean look the whole cancel culture is not something that came for Gina Carano. Gino today. Because she was making a very valid point about love. And they came for her. It's nonsense boss in in terms of Ellen. I'M NOT GONNA lose any sleep over. It. And she's apparent from what I've heard has treated her abysmally over the years Bush. It's mentioned but. It is. That's upset about Geeta Khurana Big Fan of hers her turn in the man delorean, which I contend. One of the best things I've seen on TV. Agreeable ever agreement was fantastic. Hopefully, she'll be able to beat back the she's she's she's dealt with really well, I mean what she did was she just took them on and she's she's been able to identify that most of the people who were having a goater are using boss accounts. Yup and she's been able to identify that and she's Janet Reno she would kick our asses left right and center but you also seems to be nothing but a decent person and she uses our platform for good and she was genuinely making a point about love and somebody just took offense to it and went for her it's it's wild. Highly recommend catch up on all this stuff. All I do. It is reform I'm not I'm not into these pop culture goings on on the social media. I need to now that I've said some. Things that could be considered in defense of someone who sounds like they've done some things that are talking to the fan. I'll read on story to be clear prepared for Natale was not defending Ellen at all. I just don't know the store I mean, yeah, I, was defending the idea of a talk show host being a kind of a jerk and as a boss that idea has been around as long as there's been talk shows but I you know maybe there's some things in here. That are rich teeth. It's almost a given I think that. Somebody who is a megastar might be a jerk. And then when you discover their nausea, it's such a bonus. But when you hear what she's done, it's dear you know. You mentioned the mental oriented. So we're all trying to binge watch shows I would highly recommend that as well and Disney plus season two's coming out soon I think it's September October, which is so glad they were able to finish. It in the shooting under the gun. Yeah I think they fill them the seasons back to back I. think that's what they did. So they just there in postproduction pretty much done. Whereas the marvel shows aren't quite complete yet they have to go back and do some other stuff What else have you been watching her that? You could recommend to our listeners in the UK and Ireland and indeed stateside. I my watching has been extremely limited. So I did just start my third rewatch of orange just because I can't I can't get enough. Right. Reminds me though the being in that world is just so enjoyable to me and I'm noticing new things every time and it reminds me of when I was a kid and my dad, my dad shot a TV pilot I. Don't know if you've ever talked about my dad on the show he was he was a himself. We tell about that ballot not the team put it though while it was shortly I mean it didn't it was it was just a pilot but he ended up. Just obsessed with various things on TV to like hone his creative. Acts or whatever you want to say that to make some metaphor. But anyway we had we were like very very early adopters of having a a VCR and he somehow got like what must have been more or less bootleg star wars VHS tape up Circa Nineteen, seventy, nine and. I must have watched it a hundred tops. So it's fun for me to get back into that rhythm of of just like watching watching star wars show over gives me all the feels I absolutely love it. I did also recently do a full rewatch of madman for a just just re watched that whole thing in order that was that was my that was largely my pandemic viewing and that's another show that his age very, very well. So fantastic character stuff and world building. I'm in that and then and then just to go completely laughed on you to go to another medium. So invention or I think we're talking off air about future cinema and the bummer of not having cinema. The you know what? They do still have drive-ins and there is a drive in movie theater in need in one town from Saratoga? The Malta drive. So Susan I went I went on a proper date the other night for a double feature of Greece and American graffiti on watching A. Video movie keep I can't get off talking. George Lucas Tie. The. American graffiti on the big screen for the first time in like on the car stereo it through the magic of the drive in was this is another movie obscene maybe not one hundred, fifty times I probably have seen it five years absolutely mind blowing I've been meaning to write an essay about it..

"Be those to you'd need the type of meltdown that I don't see happening pace-wise in terms of this race but that those would be those will be the three that I end up mentioning in my various videos and columns and and that's how I. See it. It's going to be a fascinating year this year strivers also with the angle that it is an important preparation for the Derby. Yeah and it's just so weird that that's the way it's GonNa work at it. So Chuck for the Burger King himself the Maestro. Mr, I got superstar buffet. We'll have to see a bob forgets on nice to see the rapper Nelly having a runner country grammar. So, I couldn't resist it. I. Couldn't resist it ride with me. Berlin to from back in the day Look you've been all over Tis, the law for as you said, some start to the year in the final podcast and he's already a very short price like he's odds-on with one firm. For the Kentucky. Derby, he's eleven to eight is the top price you can get in the UK, and Ireland about and. We'll see on Saturday it'll be live on sky sports racing it's going to be interesting race I. Guess the the simplest way of breaking the down is you are with with Tis the law. If you want to have a bet right now take uncle chuck and when you're next asked this question who's going to win the travers stakes your answer will be well in my opinion racing racing linens. Proper fencing lighting proper sense of yeah. I'll I'll I'll steal that lied for sure. It's just so tough. You know there's always this pushing poll in punditry between being selection oriented. What's the most likely thing to happen at being value-oriented? Where is there a rick between the percentage of something happening in what the prices and that's where it's Very, very tough. Usually I lean on being very selection oriented. What will give up a point in the odds to pick a horse? That is my will I think is going to win but this is a weird one where where that worst for me I current odds is is just a tick too short into the teeth of this uncle chalk who not only has there's only run twice but he's got terrific speed figures in and don't. Discount the fact, the absolutely demolished thousand words within then went onto the shared belief at del Mar and beat honore key who is second in the batting before that for the Kentucky Derby. So so this is this is serious form in figures for horses only twice, and we've seen before what baffert can do with with justify that with a lightly source doing things, you're not supposed to be able to do in your third career start. Uncle Chuck fit has a similar profile and speaking of Mr Burger King himself. I do have to put in a little plug for my friend and colleague Jonathan Kitchens J K plus one podcast on the network sat down with Bob for two and a half hours this week nine and. They have a rapport and it's it's an interview with him unlike any I've ever heard really fun interesting listeners out there. If you like American racing, you presumably do because you're still listening when I'm on and I would I would suggest that you check that out you may want to investigate the one point five times speed option for the show just because of the time that it takes, but there's a Lotta great in-form. God that's happened to to listeners before it happened to me. Or I've been listening to how did this get made or football? Why aren't they sending look there on helium? Why are they talking all hit the one point five but by mistake. That happened to us as well. Take me to the two earlier races. So we'll start with that race eleven fifteen our time on sky sports racing from Saratoga travers stakes. That's GonNa be a fascinating race particularly leading up to the Kentucky Derby and indeed for the classic as well. It's a must see race the bell arena stakes the grade one handicap for three year olds, fillies, and Mares on the main track over seven furlongs. Phillies in on this one. There there's very interesting story lines in this race is selling Gaddi empress still the same horse she was when she ran. So well up here in the test stakes try matching. We'll be talking about in a bit last year she ended up just losing to Cathy in that one, but it was really one of her best races have a really on par in my view with her amazing run in the Kentucky Oaks. If not a little bit better and figure turns but the last two days she hasn't been the same horse now granted getting the cutback today maybe she's just been running a little bit too far the mile on the sixteenth and the mile and an eighth of the last two starts maybe the burn along since her between the is she can get away from there and go on with definitely a scenario that I could. See happening, and then you also have the questions surrounding Bella Fina Elefsina who's got fantastic pass race. When you look at her overall form, this is where it gets tricky because in California, her native California, I shouldn't say native her home base of California Twelve for twelve in the forecast and it out of California has run four times and never run in the top two I'm GonNa, go ahead it. So yeah, IT'S A. Little, interesting. Can She? She just does she really just love cooking I think she's going to get an absolutely great trip. I Trust Simon Callaghan be making the right decisions. I'M GONNA go with Bala Phen- pheno in this race which I think fans of come dancing may disagree with me but it feels like is supposed to play out like a match between these two rivals I'm GonNa give narrow preference develop fina. Come down to worth just another quick man should just because she has looks like she may be coming back into form and has done her best running locally act. Saratoga she won the Ballerina last year and is certainly deserving of consideration but I'm GonNa hope that the narrative about Bella Fina and our inability to. Get a piece of the market and gives us a little bit juice and lets us bet this one who should really get a great trip against Sharon Getty. APP percents rest in this year's Valerie. Bella Fina is currently to one. You can get the full race card for Saratoga at racist DOT COM..

"If that's the way it goes I don't know I I WANNA hope against hope that like Kempton kept it story was reported as a done deal yet. It was pointed out that there's that that was worked out. So perhaps there's some way to develop land around but somehow Keep a racing presence. I don't know maybe I'm just hoping against hope, but I'm not quite willing to to give up the idea just yet. They'll be racing there but it doesn't look good at the moment and there is the culture that you've alluded to, and you could you can look at the Saint Louis Rams, you know they were gone to to A.. Franchises get picked up and moved that happens in America. It's an alien concept was like there was uproar when Wimbledon genes yeah there we've both Senate at the same time. Good look for US hopefully but there was uproar over that and they're still isn't and rightly. So by the way. But it's not something that we really have to deal with their. So when you have a racetrack like Arlington that has such a rich history and even at the top of my head I mentioned storming home already so that that race was won by Sulamani still remember side been sewer being interviewed. About being congratulated on winning the race and then the Tannoy goes and it's telling the fans that storming home has been thrown out and it's Soula. Money's been given the race and the crowd boos the Chicago goes nuts and sight bits and were trying to talk to NBC's Apu. At the passion of the American fans but that that race was wild Jamie Spencer, losing the race on power scored a year later, the jockey second celebrating winning the race, which just looked so bizarre to me as well because as a as an Irish in UK racing fine getting used to the American rules and then a year later Kieren fallon comes over in power scored gets his revenge and Spencer would get his revenge a few years later as well for a in that Rice. It's it's such a rich history of international raiders. It said such a rich history for for big name trainers to go and target the idea that that's going to be gone now just seems so weird. But the idea of moving it doesn't it doesn't feel right but maybe maybe would be the half-measure solution we're going to have to deal with it. It's obvious that meaning in recent years has turned into a little bit of a benefit for for Chad brow and I get the idea of wanting to do something get the idea of this year not having had the of trying to get local horseman a chance to get a bit more of a piece of the Pie. But there's no doubt about it that that that day is great and should live the idea of a midsummer turf festival. Breeders. Cup. Crap it deserves a place on the calendar and if not Arlington I, think that concept. In perhaps even name to live on somewhere else. But again, I'm not fully willing to give up yet that we can't the somehow polo rabbit out of a hat here. But again, it's just not not looking like the way it's going to go before we leave. Arlington though I. Do after talk about the history of it, John Henry, legendary, USA runner, winning the first ever edition of it is another one that should just get named along with some of those others well said, well said, is there a fear that this could spread that other trucks endanger as well? I think one of the lessons we saw in the pandemic with horse racing is the benefits of consolidation. And it it's. It's an awkward topic because I don't like H positing a world that's ultimately a better world for the sport and the Horseman Who Are. Allowed to have their their jobs continue. I don't WanNa be the guy whoever tells somebody they can't do their job anymore. But from a purely economic point of view now, we were down to whatever it was four tracks fewer at points during the pandemic. And grant granted. It's a tough equation because there were another sports going on but you saw the overall handled diminish only something like seven percent it's not hard to conceive that. It would be better for fans and the sport of racing to have less racing staged more. Strategically shall we say it doesn't make sense that every track runs its best racist between foreign aid on a Saturday, and we've seen some of the pandemic lessons be applied by the likes of Lone Star Park. Now, running cards months Sunday through Wednesday, and it's great as a racing bed i. good racing to watch seven days a week and it's not doesn't take much imagination to envision a world where you had. Sort of a minor, a major mid level and minor circuits coordinated and that the betting handle could actually would believe go up under such a circumstance and it would be an easier sport tomorrow and follow. This is a pipedream in that it required there's no governing bodies year it's all every state controls its own racing and getting them to work together. You know better lock with with the Arabs and Israelis but. It is it is a world that I can I can envision. But again, even if I were made the the boss tomorrow, I'd hate to have to decide which tracks could no longer which trucks could no longer operate or which which forsman could no longer breathe or whatever. It's very like UNAMERICAN ideas get tossed around here. But if you were just doing, this is a mind experiment as a thought experiment, I think racing would be better off with some consolidation. Of course, Arlington Park would never be the place that the WANNA start with with with getting rid of in in any case. Let's move onto happier thoughts Saratoga. And in this weird and wonderful world, the travers stakes takes place before the Kentucky Derby Tis the laws that we've talked about quite a bit on the show and here in Ireland and the UK he's seven four on the best prices eight to eleven about him. You've talked about a lot on the podcast. He's that you like an awful lot. Does he deserve to be such a short price going into the driver's? I mean, that's probably short enough. He deserves he's more than fifty percents win the Rix I will say that if there was odds against about I would I would hoover it up but I mean that's That's a little intense when you've got a arrival like Bob Baffert ankle chalk who looks truly like you could be any kind in amongst at against him. So you've got whatever uncle trucks chances and then whatever the longshots chances are I'm not gonNA I wouldn't be laying that, but I wouldn't be in a hurry to be cutting in line in backing it either enforced to give atop Hickey bit at current prices. I'd be very much torn between Tis, the law's number and uncle what. I'm guessing uncle chuck's numbers. What are you? What are you seeing right now? Eleven to four but uncle chuck and the best price you can get about says, the law is eight to eleven, but he's generally four to seven. Yeah I mean those numbers it's it becomes a real jump ball. It's one of those things where my punch hat and my pundit hat it depends which wear cause for my pundit hat I've been with Tis the law the whole time. So unless you tell me the numbers something insane like totally insane like two to five I'm tempted to stick with my guns I've been touting his law since he won his first race. We sat down over the Brentwood hotel in Saratoga with Maggie. Wolfendale the naira paddock analysts last year and talked about two year olds who press the most is the law was at the top of the list. So we've been we've been talking about him since his very first race it feels almost churlish to get off him now as long as the price isn't comically bad. But if I didn't have that baggage of having talked about the history year as a potential Kentucky Derby Travers horse just looking at the raw map uncle trucks a better bet at those two prices I'll I'll be honest with you on and I say this fully realizing I'm probably not going to pick him but I know you have a lot of serious punter listeners and At Eleven to four is is rock solid price. He'll be shorter on the USA tote come Saturday whereas I think Tis law will be around that price or even possibly take high you know I could see a full I'm four to five. When the time comes? So we'll have to see We'll see what they what they do in the modern, the betting markets internationally and on the USA tote. With apologies for being UNCREATIVE. They're really the only two I can see winning this race. The other cases I'd may be the case where it's like. Well, it's racy and anything can happen and that's not the kind of analysis I like to give I like to talk about things I think are going to happen not just deal with the full universal possibilities and in the realistic world, it really feels to me like it's uncle chuck and it's the law and then there's everybody else I. We'll give a quick shout out for Max Player Very cool and I think we'll be suited by the mile a quarter and should be running late but I I just feel like for him to.
"saratoga" Discussed on The Final Furlong Podcast
"Special moments going to be joined by at the races pundit and good friend Mr Peterson. Atoll. How are ya I almost missed my cue there. I. Don't know how I missed my cue on the INTRO. Maybe, you can tighten that up. For for everybody listening the wasn't really a gap but in real life was like a ten second gap there it was like. We were just talking. How did he did Peter? Drop away I was waiting for. A man or something like that. You know as as a host I was just I was thinking it was coming and then I realized it wasn't and basically, I need another cup of coffee. It's a busy week around here with all these great ones in Saratoga the same for me man of God caffeine loaded up by the barrel load here right in front of me in the in the studio The reason we decided to do a standalone episode of the American discussion is because there's so much to talk about in America right now. It's Kinda crazy trump. PORTLAND. Ellen. Getting canceled. James Corden replaces Ellen then he gets canceled because he's a jerk to. Wait. No, we're talking about Arlington. Aren't we? Sorry? Yeah. Our it's Mad America is. please. Don't make me talk about any of those things unrelated to racing I may just start weeping openly about the state of our of our of our land here but the racing still puts a smile on my face and we've got some good stuff happened. Yes. Some really good stuff and we'll build to that but we need to deal with the dark side of first of all because I genuinely Arlington is one of my favourite race courses in the world. I love the Arlington Million Meeting. You broke the news on the podcast a few months ago that the Arlington million was gone this year that it wasn't going to happen and you also you were suggesting that there was a problem there that that things were not looking good. But even when you gave that warning I had no idea how stark. The Times really were for Arlington and now it's Gone Arlington Park is no more and Chicago has lost its Premiere Racecourse. How did this happen? Well. It's. We're not quite there yet. If that is the way it is going a there is racing Arlington right now but basically the parent company Churchill downs, they're very famous. Or full disclosure a new partner on my podcast. Denver's doing some work with the folks at CDI. To that gravy Peter get that grave. I don't think I'm saying anything that anybody doesn't know who follows these things they you know they're they're publicly held company and they feel obligations to their shareholders over the Gatien's to the sport of race and it and I'm not an expert on Arlington exactly. But it does seem like they've decided not unlike with Hollywood. Park afford them that this land to potentially be developed is going to be a lot more worth a lot more than as as a racing property and they've got other properties in the Midwest and it looks like they're going to be selling this off and unless something. Unpredictable happens and racing interests are somehow able to to compete with the developmental interest and be able to to make an offer that that's competitive. It does seem like Arlington is isn't GonNa be racing anymore it's just a terrible loss obviously for for American racing's this is a place we've seen so much history over the years annually like you I find that Arlington million meeting to be one of my favorites and had to so many great memories some scary memories to some of the things that have gone on down there storming home. All Miss It. I'll miss it terribly if it ends up that this is the for Arlington. It's still a little bit of a moving target in terms of no, no sale has been made, but the intention has been stated and it doesn't look good for the future of racing at that story. Chicago venue, I. think Everybody involved is GonNa be feeling the Bielema loss if you're a racing fan so Probably. Slightly jumped the gun there with my comments but that as the feeling though in America like the feeling within the US press and your colleagues in the media rooms virtually obviously because of social distancing is that it's done and this all comes from quarterly earnings call where the CEO said the long term solution is not Arlington Park and they've talked about licenses go and they're going to sell the land. When Kempton was being floated for for similar things that they were going to sell dot. And the racing King George would move to San down and it was all going to be redeveloped. There was uproar. I was one of the people very much against that whatever attendances to the racecourse it's the prestige of the King George and Saint Stephen's Day and boxing day in that race meeting being there and the Christmas article, and there's obviously other massive races that take place at Kempton as well. But also it's a city truck, its London. So if you properly promoted and if you work it, well, you can get racegoers there and you can. You can build the brand even more if you proper to properly utilize what you have Kempton has been saved. Chicago and racing is it's a famous history for this to go. Look what is the reaction from fans? What's the reaction from your colleagues? What? You've already said that you're gonNA miss it. But what is the the underground reaction? I'd love to talk to some of my friends in Illinois, about this because I have a lot of trans who really. Illinois racing is their thing and I I've been so busy dealing with things up here that I haven't done a good call around that. There will be much eulogizing if this in fact does come to pass by the people I've talked to I I mean I've seen a blind rage I think would be the best way. But, I mean these from from a friend who grew up in Chicago is his connection to the sport has grown to include house in Saratoga Buddy grew up going with his dad to Arlington and people. People aren't, GonNa, be knocking to be happy about it, but it's not gonNA sock it to turn them off the sport forever anything but it's very much like you start to see the racing fans are such a unique, not unique research a tiny. Piece of the market in the sports landscape in the United States, we're almost like a cult and you compare that and you think about Major League, baseball, and American football, and you can see how some of these owners I'm not in favor of publicly funded sports stadia. I do not like the idea of billionaires getting sports, fans, the average people workers to finance their. Their grounds essentially through taxation it doesn't seem right to me but this kind of how they get away with it you see the emotional reaction people have one of these things does go away. You could see how these. Billionaire owners in other sports are able to fans well, tell you why? Unless we can get this bill approved to get some public money? WHERE GONNA move to Seattle or wherever whatever nothing gets the out whatever whatever other city is available, and you could see the deep connections we have to the sporting venues where we will weaned on these great games that make up a such an important fabric of our life and help us. Go from from year to year and count out our lives and give us so much joy. It's it's a tremendous loss when one when one goes away And it's not going to be easy to get over for a lot of people..
Weekend Stakes Preview Presented by NYRA Bets
"The victory ride kicks off the stakes action here at Belmont Park tomorrow afternoon grade three early in the caught has just the feel of five phillies. GOING TO GO Six and a half furlongs as for the three year old's warning line favors one francs. Rock Cat Hall of Famer Bill Will Give Fellow Hall of Famer John Velazquez a leg up and this phillies done very little wrong on her career. She's three for seven. With four second-place finishes ran second in a couple of graded stakes, including the grade one spin away up at Saratoga last year last seen winning a third level allowance optional claimer. She uses stakes. Winner took the any limit kick off three year old season three starts back. and. Probably the only reason that this race isn't later in the card is that it's a five Horsfield and Franks? Rakhat is three to five on the morning line, and she may be the the loan speed in race, so she's going to be tough to beat at three to five, but that's a pretty short price, considering there some pretty good up and coming phillies near now I think number four center. I'll I'm going to give her another shot for. For Chad Brown and Joel Rosario Sheila Great Getting Her Maiden Win Gulfstream Park, when bet down to three to five at the end of March then came back in a tough allowance race at Churchill downs where she was really over bet, she was three to five that day against another very impressive maiden winner of this one for Steve Asmussen in casual casual ran a great race that day center I'll had all sorts of problems. She didn't break that well. She had trouble during the race, and she was just really never in at any point. I think it's a racy can kind of draw a line through? If she runs closer to the way she did and her debut. I think she's the one that could give Franks rock cat. The biggest problem Franks rocket will probably get the lead I would think Rosario would have center I'll sitting justin behind her and seeing if they can outgun into the line going six and a half furlongs. With you I'm going to take a shot with center. Rile planner. If? When I plan! Early took five tomorrow I will use both Franks rocket and center, but I'll tell you what I think. You can make a case also for up in smoke was undefeated and sprints. She's four five and a career. Lone blemish came when George Weaver tries to stretch her out Hollywood wildcat. Go at Gulfstream Park. She's raced exclusively of Gulfstream, in fact, steady diet once. Once a month February march April may June now. She gets a race in July. Here over Big Sandy, she wanted the game face overboard last time out for weaver Rod Ortiz Junior. Who wrote her in her debut against fellow Florida breads down at Gulfstream Park's in the climb back aboard for the first time. Since that day looks, you'll need a little help up front if Franks, rockets able to set an easy pace I. She's going to be very very tough. I think Senator I'll be the first one to come calling. Those are the two up in smoke. If you're looking to three deep, I don't think you need to center for Bobby and I race number three goes as the great three six and a half for a long victory ride go to the end of the card. Eleven race card like I said earlier, and the final four races make up an all stakes pick four, and it starts in reasoning with the greed three poker. Flat Mile on the turf for many years. This was the fourth of July staple. On the naira calendar here it is now as part of a super five stakes card. In, the poker though. On the widener, so they come out of that shoot. On the clubhouse turn we get a field of eight entered for the turf as a main track. Only it's all relevant with the way. The weather's been here. I would imagine you know there's supposed to be some rain. We're recording the show Friday afternoon supposed to be some rains rather day on Friday and into the evening. I can't imagine it enough to take this off the turf, so let's say it will be a field of eight.
Tiz The Law Owner Jack Knowlton On Belmont Win
"Will here it is Jack Knowlton visiting with Anthony's to bill on. Red Brand radio. Congratulations on a fantastic win. A lot of people feel like it was seventeen years in the making my friend. Well we finally got our triple. Crown for Sakho Toga for Barclay tag and took us two horses and seventeen years, but from what I understand. It's still kind of fight for Barclay There aren't a lot of trainers at You know is one three legs of the triple crown in recent years. Yeah and you know you guys together. Seventeen years apart, and with New York breads and I know that's the. The mantra over attack a Toga. You guys support that program as well as anyone. Well I was pretty fascinated to learn that it was one hundred thirty eight years since the new. York breaded, won the. Belmont stakes now I know a lot of people are going to say well, then really count you know at you know. It wasn't a mile and a half and Yada, Yada but. In my mind, anybody who watched that race, who questions who would have won that race? It has been a mile and a half. I think the outcome would have been exactly the same as it was at amendment eight. And, Barkley had gone on record is before the race saying you know I would have liked a mile and a half of the source, and he's a horse again. New York Brad and that's what you guys do, you? You've been high on this horse from day one. Well. I watched them train at Saratoga. I mean you're up there and I'd go over at six o'clock in the morning 'cause. That was a time of day that Berkeley landed of track. It was almost darker. She got near the end of the need of what's dark. And not only did he. You know have a good works, and you know work quickly, not crazy fast, but you know good works. But the way he galloped out, I mean they couldn't pull him up. He goes around the second turn. After you know going, pass the finish line and writers just added tremendously difficult time pulling them up junior. Alvarado was riding. Mine is is raised back then, and when I saw that we went into a first range of six and a half furlong maiden mates for New York. Badge I really had a lot of confidence and He's lived up to it so one little bump in a road when he got stuck down inside and the worst part of the race track and Kentucky Jockey Club At. The end of November other than that He really has been flawless. Yeah. That's lobby. Track back in November. He's just been He's been impeccable. The rest of the way the covid nineteen outbreak of course forced post moment of the Kentucky Derby the preakness to. The. Bom obviously the biggest change with the Belmont was not only the two weeks, but the distance. You've mentioned the ASTERISK. We'll get to that in a minute You guys pretty much. And gals I don't want to offend anybody in Saratoga those thirty-five parts of this. Is that accurate? Seven and funny is that I was that six or seventy? You guys and funny side. We had ten ten. Okay, okay only. The same folks lieutenant. And I the only holdovers class. You guys Gus Williams. He passed away several years ago as dead one of our other great partners Dave Man but Ruined I gave remaining to. Stay with it and never in the world expecting that we would get the kind of horse that we've gotten here with the law. And this was an important race for you to win Jack Not that you don't want to win. The Derby again or the preakness again, but the Belmont stakes with your dedication to new. York, Brad's and New York, and let's face it. you know in a game where horses changed hands an awful lot. You and Barclay have been together two decades at this point. This was a very important race for you guys to to tick the box on. It was, and now he's got one more coming up in my hometown Saratoga Springs I've lived thirty five years I know Barkley wants to win it badly as do I and. Really if we can you know, check this box. would include the champagne, which is the the most important two year old race. The Belmont stakes obviously being biggest Belmont. Race and We get the travers at Saratoga. That's quite a triple. And that's pretty remarkable. When you consider you know you started this twenty years ago. As pretty much. Just some friends getting together and buying some horses. We had six guys and Sackett Cyber. I find the eastern end of Lake Ontario I went to high school. We were having our usual. Memorial Day weekend, bearing barbecue, and my wife and I would go up there and visit and I had been in the harness. Business Standard Bread business I guess for about a dozen years and got out. In in ninety four. And somebody up there said well. Why don't we buy a thoroughbred and I said you know figuring I've never gonNA hear anything about it again. I said okay. I said you know, let's each put in five thousand dollars. I knew Tim Kelly at that point who's a trainer and works at is never now. so I got a hold of me and he found this a New York Brad for twenty two thousand dollars. We named him the second sex after the six of us. From Sackett Cyber and came up with the name sack Toga stable after sack I Saratoga and made ourselves Maroon and gray, which are high school college. So. That's how it all started.

"You know that will look at that that that's a theme that you hear a lot in a lot of places attract. I think you hear it a lot at a place like saratoga. 'cause you here it certainly in the sale. I mean you hear everybody say every sheets great every dams great every second dams great but then you've got that wow factor and you know we're talking about saturday friday. Some of the worst is that just walked out of the paddock. We're just clearly like you know wow. That's a different animal when you see that and you make that mental no no. That's the benchmark that you forever. You know sort of measuring your eye up to right yeah you you see those horses and you know they may not run good that day but they'll run good sooner than later yeah and and you get that feeling and it's fantastic mike i remember sitting here with you last year and you just opened your new store on broadway here in saratoga springs so we were talking about that and the concept and how it was gonna play out now. You've had a year under your belt. Now mission accomplished. I would say <hes> yeah. I think so i mean i think you'd never you know you've never really in a situation where you were you. Feel like you've arrived per se but i think the idea of opening their being there you know <hes> getting our logo and such a prominent that location and the recognition that comes with it and i think the biggest thing that we've seen and and you know some of your guests tonight talked about what is the idea of racing is is alive and well and healthy but it's so aspirational we see a side of the sport that many folks even here don't even see because here's so much on the industry side right which is great and huge big fabulous amazing industry. Sorry we see a lot of the other side to we probably have over a growing half of our customers who are who are truly just enthusiasts and they they may not even own or bet they just love the spirit of what the racing stands for and when you combine that we think with an amazing logo on a cool phrase that just hits you in your soul if you get it you know that's an electric thing so you know this weekend was a great example. I mean one person after the next thing you didn't know if if it was aidan o'brien's crew or or two dollar better or you know people from manhattan or california chicago are free and it was literally one after the next wow and they all really wouldn't have much in common except for fortunately for us.

It always emerging any business <hes> but i think that you know we certainly have a commitment to the industry and commitment to customer service and i think the other thing is is really nice and is part of what we while. We do a hopefully a good job is that we love the game. I think many women that work here are engaged in the a game. I mean even when you're not having sale. You're watching the races and <hes> and i think that really spreads throughout our organization and hopefully it shows and how we approach approach jobs. I'm glad you mentioned tony california because i was going to ask you how the maryland and california people felt about me leaving him off of that list. Those are pretty good sales to absolutely and you you know the one thing to keep in mind is that every time a horse walks into the ring that some man or some woman's property they've taken great pride and raising horse or they bought that horse with the intention of recent and you have an obligation that commitment to them to the very best that you can whether it's a five thousand dollars or fifty thousand dollars or five hundred thousand dollars horse give you have a personal favorite memory sticks out to you and you think about the saratoga selling the moments. You've been part of over the years. Is there that one special moment that for whatever reason is special boyd browning you know. I think that there's not i can't name one in particular. I think that the one sale that probably resonates more than anything else was. It's probably been fifteen years ago now. <hes> when when the power went out in saratoga i mean like literally the power went out in saratoga <hes> we had the we have the facility equipped with emergency urgency generators and backup plans and within about four minutes. The sale is back on again. <hes> folks were flying over. It was really weird because there was one little beacon of light throughout like a forty mile radius and it was the sale here at saratoga. We had a hell of a sale that night to i mean they. Everybody got pushed into the pavilion. It must have been about one hundred and twenty degrees as an enemy people were bidding <hes> so they didn't pass out from heat exhaustion but that was fun. <hes> you know and you're always proud of your of you. Remember the horses that went on to achieve success and unfortunately there's too many of them to name and i hope we look back in three or four years and say that two thousand and nineteen so it was pretty special. Look at all those is fantastic horses that were on those sales around and and went on to be you know fantastic performers. I can't wait to see what happens. The next couple of nights good luck. Thank you very much appreciate it. All right basically tipton president boyd browning love the story told about the night that they lost power immediately got back on had a heck of a sale and the planes flying <music> overhead that saw this is the only light within like a forty mile radius pretty cool story. Yeah it is and you can imagine because saratoga is a mountainous area yeah and i'm sure the pirates violence appreciate having some kind of beacon to what was going on yeah. It's it's amazing all the things that have happened here over the years and that just adds to the lore it does the lure of saratoga the law is alive and well across the street at the race.
