The sale and for you got hurt earlier this spring and kind of inbetween coming back and seeing where you're going next yet so have been taking vacation. This summer spent unfortunate. These repetitive concussions. Takes time off. Hopefully this full get reevaluated. And hopefully back in the saddle soon enough but you know taking his time to enjoyed -joyed reysen been up to saratoga of osama unless they enjoyed the sales now beautiful september day so nothing better really hurricane keeneland. It's got to be hard to not be riding and wondering your next. I guess yeah you know. It's funny the first month is nice to be able to eat wherever you want. I assume whereas off you know yeah. It's definitely been pretty hard last couple months. You know missing it and you know when you go into a racist and stuff. It's weird watching it from the ground and and you know you feel like you're out the socal bill facade and so yeah i'm pretty to get back back to for young guy. It's hard. I mean you get this kind of your role and things were going well and then all of a sudden rug gets pulled out from under you basically. Yeah you know. i've been last couple years out a couple of foods and stuff and go stop and go and lie finally got back gun good again. I hooked up with trading downright. Shane wilson and i was wrong. I cool for him and we have really good meat at fairgrounds and stuff happens. Pod game unfortunate. You know isn't a matter of if is a win and much jockeys have to go for at some point in their career so heartfelt woman. I look out the way my a clear sailing for a couple years. At least yeah. How hard is it mentally. I how do you deal with the not riding in the the uncertainty. Oh it's it's tough. You know because you know especially foul amino ohio is worried about my weight. Getting control you know with time off in Assess always a thing is like scary being like okay. Maybe i'm fit to get back right. And i'm physically able to because you know if my way gets high but luckily keep down over the summer so i'm pretty confident we'll get back down around the thing because west on you've done your whole life and the only thing that i were to do your whole life. It's especially because i'm young. I haven't really had retirement in the plans in the future. So voice things get sprung upon you and you like have to think like what could i do. What what else is that you know. And i mean that's the good thing is what about whole chasing is so many different avenues. You can take it. So that's made a have taught and played with different ideas as summer what to do but only i found was takako more years at least ride in may go down a training route eventually. You crazy train. I always said as that trained back in england and always watching growing falls. I don't wanna do that. Like i is just miserable. I don't know it probably be natural mafia. I know trainers of romy because I think more. Because osgood wholesome and a good jockey they like my feedback and stuff so i think they have a natural touch for anyways and yeah you know. It's it's for your nice job of haven as for in europe being trained not say and yeah you know it's it's good. You get stay in that you know in the racing group you know i mean and the very shock every day and you know be around the horses which is the things i love so it be a good happy medium anyways. That sounds like a good plan. Takes us back to the beginning. Grown up in england from of racing family racing background of his. There always something. You always wanted to do it. A jackie oh yeah. So you know in england yards alot people. You know we live on the yards everyone as individuals and the backstretch here. So you know. Mom and dad would trade him before i was born and so i just grew up. I was in the in the shedders every single day from the push you know i mean know obviously wanted to racist from a very young age and just i don't think wants to be anything else on the jockey. Remember you know salma first racehorse on ause like for years old you know and had ponies and ended pony racing and then you start writing out before school When i was like thirteen and a half was ed and a ride out set for my dad before school every day and just been prepared for been planning for my whole life you know. Hey it's school can wait to leave. And i say two weeks after i graduate right before the race in sixteen Don ever since. I guess it's called born in a way but you know i'm lucky of you. Know had a dream vanilla to do it. You know which people don't get that so i've been very lucky. I was one of those kids. I'd gal for my dad in the morning. Go to go to school when you're sitting there and watching the clock. Oh backward ride just sitting there like waiting for the three o'clock bell right exactly you know it's It's like when it gets you know when when you get the get the the h. for you know you just. It's just nothing nothing else. Occupies your mind. You know you just wanna do it. Live and breathe it and it's it's nice feeling and it is funny. What'd you doing it as a job. Condoleeza a little bit. You know there's times when you struggling or you know just times he career and you forget that you know sometimes it's cop and good homelessness but tom off africa's cotton make me take step back and appreciate really. I think a lot of people called lose. Why the reason why we do it would just doing it. You know it's one of those things. It's good to take a step back every night again. Kind of appreciate what you go you know. What great privilege is ready to ride them. And you know being such a good sport like this takes us back to working for sir mark prescott. How that that was amazing. So at the time A i struggled. It was so much hard work. I mean he was old. School at school is still longer seven trainer newmarket and he does everything the way it should be in the way it was done back in the oj days and it was tough. You know i You know obviously what woman ad and safai but you know. He did things way things normally done..

"Sean clancy. And i'm in the room with jackie david flores. I would've said retired. Jackie became back in. I had a good second the other day. Take me through the process of coming back and riding the race at fifty three. Well sean thank. You is a pleasure to be here with you. Yeah it'd be retire officially from racing as a jockey. But i've been active. You know i've been breaking babies and then these these The season is over for me in about may from breaking babies and babies in the two zero sales so that keeps me in good shape but Wesley keep calling a you gotta come with me. Gotta come with me to badmin- so so i did. I come to money and i was assistant trainer. Form over there which i. I didn't have a chance to ride over there. But i wanted to them. That was you know. I should like us per fab. Brees all the horses and and it's just keep working so Being active. I think it's one of the things that you know like i have a paternity here too for wesleyan. Say they'd have a horse for me to write us a sure. I know i'm no problem so Bed breathing horses helps in. So i get to ride this horse. And if you're like. I never left that. That is not the same you know fifty three and she's is not this i to say it is not the same but but i'm very grateful that That i feel still in good shape. And i keep myself where i work out a little bit so i. I don't wanna little you know. I don't want to like i'm really really tired then. But but It's a privilege to be able to to be my age and still doing. It went on like once in a while but anyway wesley was is pretty much. The one they put in my head that i that i was going to write one horse so i had to be ready for it. And if have an opportunity to write you know of course. So what's different. Is it mentally physically. What feels different. I it's more physically mentally man. I had dreams that. I waited raises and all these but by when it comes to To be there physically and it's just it's definitely physically mentally. We probably think that we can still do it in all these ideas but now it's not the same but when you have a good horse put your back and adrenaline kicks in. And it's a magic. So i believe the horse makes the difference too. Yeah what was it like being in the gate again and you get that same adrenaline feeling. I guess so right. I was excited. I was ready. And then i got a bet star. Why got bombed by the gate and that put me back in a bad spot. And i'm thinking this horses so small. Then he got bam sword and boy i was for soy for him but I took my time. And i kind of let him get into stride and finally got him out and seem like when i got him out. Look like i pointed out there and he feel like he was. He had something in the tank so i i was patient and when i was sent to go i i asked him and he was responded. And i'm thinking boy. I have a chance you know. And and that's kind of mentality we gotta have. We have a chance in. And when i didn't see at the top of the stress when i saw that the the the horse horse on the lead. I'm thinking oh boy we in trouble here. But i at least i encouraged him. And and i drove my best least to run a good second. Look good buddy. I promise you you're strong. You didn't override. He didn't it was like it was actually look like the david floors of all. I appreciate. That definitely means a lot to me. I guess begging me hope maybe the win another race sometime. Take me back to the beginning. Dad road races and gaff towards. Was it something you always wanted to do. From from early age. I was born around horses and in where by the time i got on a horse i was four years old and says then i remember says in love with animals in it was natural. I guess for me to to have the privilege to have a dad that it was a cowboy. It was a horseman. So he gave me a I will say that foundation the basics in in that was sixteen when he when he decided. I was going to be jockey and us. Okay you but because by then i was already i went forty. Two races and measures Outside the track and so that he come easier for me in. I don't even know to be honest. that what. I was doing Till i wrote at team for the first five years. I think and i think this is why i'm going to do for the rest of my days so you know it's just i guess it was there in That was that was a blessing. So your first ride. I winner was in mexico. Is that right. Marsh was march third and nineteen eighty. Four sweet dog. That was trainer was west gain And i was i remember. I had a contra. we'd has that which He was Training that he helped me in apprentice in my age in he entered a horse would me against the contract and they got they got fine. My agent and my in the trainer that i wrote for that. I was writing for and i got. I got suspended two weeks. But i win the race. It was worth it. That was weird. Yeah what was raising like it. And i had to be very different than america yes it definitely was Rough i will say.

"With steve. Big raising and becoming interviews. This is stupid. We're back second-half on this kind of damp wednesday. It's it's just annoying enough here to have have interrupted the opportunity to stay on the turf for the you know the whole card So it tina said team said there was. She woke up at some point during the evening. And we're just talking about it and she said it was raining pretty good But when i got up this morning it didn't. It wasn't that what here again east of the hudson. It's funny we're only worth thirteen miles from the racetrack and there will be occasions in both directions. When i'm at the track. And i'll tell you know caught heater at home and and i'll say boys porn she goes. It's not raining here and the the the opposite where we're getting you know in green which we're getting clobbered and and it's not raining at the track and for years going back to the barbecue days we track it attracts storms or come and see. We're kind of prepared and these are not thunderstorms. This is more of a off and on kind of rain and the thunderstorms are funny. Because they sometimes they track and with with the mountains where they are the storms will sometimes ride high and kind of head into you know into the hills and to the lake. And sometimes they'll also dive down It's it's very strange. so you're almost. You're almost better off with with thunderstorm. Activity and rolling the dice rather than what we've got here for the next few days which is sort of a You know off and on rain that that could accumulate But as i said to bill gallo the way that courses right now. Sean clancy joins us. And i'm sure he'll confirm it right now. Sean that that course is perfect for today's grade. One yeah for what we do. It's fine and i think there's a few words out that might have wanted it Rock hard like it has been but But for the most part it's good safe sound course It should be perfect. Well it For the most part. It's been a pretty perfect saratoga season and here we are with these last three weeks. The midway point and this first running of jonathan sheppard you've got to river d. players here city dreamer and deborah farro And I don't want to add to the nerves but feels like you know..

"This is in the room with sean. Clancy sean clancy. And i'm in the room retired jockey. Robert landry here at saratoga. What's being at saratoga. No place like it. I mean you know. We weren't able to come here last year because of the pandemic but glad happy to be here and you know would have been nice to have a winner here last week but You know we're in saratoga. What more can you ask for. Yeah you retired and became racing manager for chiefs twitter. You road road races for before. Take us through the the the the difference between rydin races and managing horses. Well it's a lot more work Managing horses that's for sure You know not only. We have them spread out amongst a whole lot of trainer. So you know todd. Pletcher shug mcgahey. jimmy jerkins Mark cassie and graham motion. So you know you're running around you're you know obviously as you know in the horse business. There's always issues here and there You know and You know usually when something goes wrong or they're getting in touch with you so like it's twenty four seven you know when you have as many horses as we have but You know it's nice to be part of it but You sit here and you watch these sources train and a lot of the time you. You'd like to be out there. Because i do think you have an edge sitting on their back to evaluate their ability. Yeah no doubt. When the same thing for me. When i'm watching and it's like man if i if i was on that or is might be able to tell what's wrong with that orser. What's good with that horse or whatever should be doing exactly exactly. I mean it's it's really a disadvantage. When you're sitting on the ground for sure but i think i'm i think i'm starting to adjust and in and have a better idea you've been retired for how long ten years eleven years and on the twentieth of august is eleven years so it's been a while but you know i miss the big days obviously Riding but You know this is a new venture. And i'm enjoying it. It's got fuel your competitive spirit to and it's good to have that after being so competitive for so long. Yeah exactly and you know. I'm very fortunate to be around a lot of well. Bred horses. In a lot of great horseman. And you know this game. You always learn and it's just nice to be able to chat with the trainers at trained for us and learn even more things back to the beginning. How did you become a jockey size. More than anything. I was a real small guy and very light And i always liked animals and my dad used to go to the races. He was a two dollar better but he just really enjoyed the horses. And i used to go to the races with them all the time and he had a buddy that owned a couple horses and his buddy kept pushing me. You should be jockey. Should be jockey. And i used to always ride on the weekends and stuff Just you know pleasure. Horses and stuff and i ended up at the track at a thirteen years old working on the weekend and through the summers and before you know it i was getting on horses at the track and the rest is history becomes kind of natural in a in a strange kind of way. I guess it does. And i'm you know i. I don't regret it for one minute Obviously i had a few bumps and bruises along the way But you know it was. It's been a great life and met a lot of really interesting people and you know still meeting a lot of interesting people so it's just been very good life for me. It takes back to your career. Who is the best word. I wrote a lot of really talented horses. I would have to say. Obviously neagh on win and the plate was was a big thrill for me for cheese would stables and won the alabama careless jewell. Who was a really nice philly. I think the best horse i ever rode was affiliated only ran a few times for sampson farms. Her name was hello seattle. She wanted i start you by about fifteen or second start was a steak and she one and then she was She was a horse. It was going to head to the breeders cup juvenile and you know she was out working older great at stake winners and anyways Her third race. She turned down. The backside switch leads and her leg We were able to you know. I got her pulled up pretty quick and they were able to save her You know she ended eventually ended up dying a call unfortunately but i think she was probably the best horse i ever rode. She was a deputy minister philly. How about careless. Jewell when you come now it comes to saratoga to Ride the alabama. Everything's perfect and then she dumps in the before the race. Yeah she got me twice. Actually she got me just leaving the just stepping onto the racetrack. And then i was warming up and she She kind of propped and got me off. I was off on the other side hanging onto her. She got away from the pony. And i knew she could run. So i'm running alongside or making sure she didn't get Get loose but Obviously she was She was a very very talented philly. I mean she ended up getting squeezed into the first turn as well. She overcame a lot. But tell you and you know to be able to win a race at saratoga is great but to be able to win a great one at saratoga is awesome and i mean that's all i ever wanted to do is is win a race at this track and the last one i wrote was the one so obviously a very very special memory. Take us back when you come to saratoga. You have a moment where like wow. I'm in saratoga. Or what's that like. Yeah i mean you hear a lot about it as a kid and and You know obviously saratoga has a ton of history And you know just to come here. I mean as soon as you you know we drive through amsterdam. You know you're getting close and You know it's just it's just a special place to be just. It's hard to explain but you know it's just such a great vibe here no doubt you spend most of your career bind in In canada didn't make that many trips but yet to come here and win win a race like the alabama efficient horses at saratoga and and total most of them were stake races and a lot. They ran well. A lot of them ran well. But like i say i was lucky enough to win a grade one at saratoga. And that's a pretty tough thing to do. She wasn't easy to ride. Obviously mish dempsey twice post spray. What did you. What did you do to try to help her. I mean what was you had. I think you kinda soft hands kind of just try to get her to settle. I think that was probably one of your best rates. Maybe i think so. I mean you know. I got along with those wiry type phillies. I think you know the the best thing i could do is stay on her because she had a tremendous amount of talent. And i mean obviously unless your mouth that you know. Jockeys job is very difficult You know but i was really good at pointing them when they were good enough. It was your best ride. And like when i wrote the best horse. Exactly one hundred percent. One hundred percent take us through retiring. How tough was that in the process of kind of getting over. It wasn't that difficult. Because i did retire on my own terms You know i had had you know quite a few spills. I had broken my back a couple of times and you know. I had a lot of head trauma and about two two and a half months before i retired. I had had another fall. And i didn't break any bones but You know i had hit my head pretty good and and I ended up taking a month and it came back and rolled for a bit. And i could just tell that it was time and i always wanted to retire when i was still having some success. My last winter was a stake winner on things. We're still doing going well..

What were your thoughts going into. The belmont ave the longer race was that better or worse for firmed. Obviously it's an unknown for any worse but You know obviously you felt like it was probably not not better I didn't know it would be that it would be worse either but it was a big question mark and you know he had. Obviously you know they. They've gone through a couple of tough races obviously are kind the bigger more stronger looking horse. So of course those guys you know. They're paying saying oh. Yeah this time we're just gonna run running into the ground And i knew that's probably what they were going to try to do. But i knew affirmative heart and that You know he was just a extremely talented as well. So you know there were there was as you say there was never that much between them And then you're the races that they ran. It was a little bit kind of getting the right tactics and A new firm would always try to get it out. You know if he was good enough. So i was optimistic without being over confident because i never overconfident whenever i wrote against alydar worse for sure. Yeah and take us through the right was. Did it go as planned to me. Were there moments where you thought. Oh trouble here. What was that like well. Did you know the big thing was to try to slow the pace down you know. Obviously we want to be more like a mile quarter race than a mile and a half race you know so we got away with the first half of a mile and fifty which was good and then that was the end of the alydar said you know off of that but you know the thing was when dr came to me I just thought you know. I know he doesn't wanna go on. He doesn't want go to lead a mile out I'm just gonna sit here. You know if he goes on this follow him you know. Write it from there but You know in my heart. I knew he didn't want to go on. So you know once got up to me we just kind of look at each other for a while and You know but then at some point probably about you know five out george. The pace picked up and Yeah would the race be really began and Obviously from that point on it was you know very contentious and the head of the stretch Yeah i i was a little concerned. 'cause you know i could feel the l. Are affirmed underneath me. Just feeling a little bit you know tyre just kinda felt like he was Not really. I didn't feel i wouldn't feel confident about it at that point. I'll put it that way but You know obviously. I just kept riding him and then i hit him left handed and responders and Once you got head back and trunk you know it kinda felt like he was gonna keep it in front no matter if we went another mile or the feeling yeah feeling. It's a lot of emotion. You know i think one of motions was Exhilaration and also like an exhale of you know. Thank god that's over and Also you know just pr- pride in you know the horse and myself you know. Basically i realized that you know i couldn't make one mistake. You know during the whole race and still win it and that's really what happened. You know and So you know it's it's kinda gratifying more gratifying to win it. that way. although it's very you know you know. Get your nurse going let you know it was a great race. It was pr- with. I'm you know in my mind. It was the greatest race. I was ever involved in and i wrote it in a lotta tight finishes in one. A lot of big races and tight finishes both that was just you know the epitome of put racing's all about and seven years later you've moved your tax england. You ride slip anchor and that's and darby your sense trying the race the favourite for for while he wasn't sir henry so then but later became sir henry so but but similar feeling pressure similar is affirmed or what is now the. Obviously it's more you know once you get to that stage of your life and everything it's more the your desire to do something you know. Then the pressure of. I'm worried about not doing. It was just like i really just want to achieve this goal. You know and obviously You know. I had a lot of on the horse. I called my dad. And i think i can win the derby this year. The darby Now come over so he was there so that was cool. Wow and You know lord howard to walden on the worst who also was one of the wealthiest guys ending england and owned about half a london. It never won the darby before so he was. It was like you know. Dream visit to the things on his bucket list and So it was nice to do it for him. It was henry's first darby When and Yeah so there was a lot of. I know a lot of things that were you know exciting for everybody. That was involved and it was nice to be correct about you. Know the horse knowing that you just did really improved on the last couple of months leading up to the derby.
