"A little bizarre you you for affiliate was so good. Last year You know kind looks like this was her again she would driving this year. Obviously, she got really really late start but but nothing was really indicating shoot around as bad as she did here so that that's a head scratcher. Hopefully, she can move forward office bad effort. And, now we're GONNA move onto the final rates from Belmont Park Jockey Club Gold Cup, which. Was a race that I didn't really think very highly of many of the most of the horses coming in here. This seemed like the race where Tacitus A. was if you've ever going to win a grade one race, this was the race that he was going to do it and I know that we've said that about the last two grade, one races, but this one. More so than the Woodward because I do think looking back on it, both of us under sold global campaign going into the Woodward he was better than I. Think both of us gave us gave him credit for this field tacitus. If he was tacitus coming out of the woods memorial, last year should have beaten this group, no issues, and this is really kind of the race where if you are someone who stuck to tacitus through this whole thing, this is kind of the racer you're off of him I was off of him going into the race. And you know I think it shows now that Tacitus the horse it's GonNa run good races in races like this but isn't GonNa Win Nice run from the winner happy save I was not impressed at all with the Federico Seo and I didn't really think that he was horse that coming in here. You know maybe he would run obviously he would run something good because it was a five field but I didn't really believe too much him and I was wrong with him there he gave credit to him he ran the ran the winning rates mystic guide. was ran a really good race in the stretch and you know I was taught myself in a really liking Mr guided was originally something were just to go against Tacitus I picked him. But as I looked more into it, I thought that he had a really good chance to run a good race. He did run a good second. Did have some excuses being wider than misdemeanor happy saver was but regardless nothing excuses for Michigan. Happy. Saver ran a really good race here. You know it obviously opens up the question what happens with him now in Breeders Cup and you know in terms of his placing among the rest the three year olds but good race for him. Good Race for Mr Guided? Really. Just a really discouraging at for from Tacitus I. Know He has a lot of fans and for tests fans out there that has to be a really discouraging loss..
A Closer Look at Sundar Pichai: From Middle Class Indian Upbringing to Google's Head Honcho
"Google and its parent company alphabet on the precipice of several major challenges regulators are expected to file antitrust lawsuits as early as this month and other example some faith company isn't as innovative as it used to be. A CEO of alphabet sooner Pechanga will play a key role in how the company navigates the headwinds, and while Pichai, is not nearly as in the spotlight as the other tech leaders. He's already had a long history Google, and by taking a look back, we can try and get some clues about how he might move the company forward a reporter Copeland joins us with an inside look rob. Thanks for joining me. Thank you. So, at the tech hearing before the House antitrust subcommittee earlier, this year Pichai himself as an immigrant sort of the picture of the American dream. And wonder if you could start by telling us more about the Chinese upbringing shore so Definitely outlier in many ways in Silicon Valley perhaps the most famous way that he stands out is that he was born in. India. So he grew up middle-class for India but not necessarily add western standards. He famously talks about growing up and getting in his first. Rotary phone. He is in such an older guy that the technology was just a lot less developed there. So he speaks frequently about the connection that he feels to technology and the knowledge that new technology can really change someone's life. So pettah eventually came to the US for Grad School. How do you find his Google? He worked relatively ordinary corp jobs until he joined Google right after its IPO google was not the Google that it is today it really was just a search engine. Quickly impresses people for his ability to one build consensus, which is true to this day, but also get the job done his first major job at Google. toolbar product. So before there was chrome there actually was an add on on your browser to search google. So his job was to convince companies like Dell when they sold you a laptop to have an automatic google search bar on there. So he's moved through the ranks since then becoming CEO of Google and then last year taking over as alphabet. CEO How did he make his way up the ladder? What's so remarkable is he's been at Google for sixteen years and we even though we're the Wall Street Journal have never done a full profile of him. So a big part of my task for the last few months was really unpacking who he is and how he got to this position and what really emerges is that Google was a place and still is a place with big personalities people who scream at each other people who say we should bet the farm on this or that and what sooner sort of did. was stay in the background, but he was also very careful that whatever he did it worked starting with toolbar but that extends to chrome the browser which he co lead and is now by far the most used web browser one of the big reveals of this reporting for me was that he's a very strategic person. It's not an accident that he stayed in the background for instance, someone who used to report to him. Told me early on in a meeting with with Larry? Page. who was CEO of Google before soon Dr Sooner made sure that they never disagreed in front of Larry. He really didn't want anyone to see any cracks and this also emerges in a lot of the people I spoke to some of whom sooner himself suggested that I speak to. But then when I got on the phone with them, they didn't seem to know him personally well. So he he keeps it very close to the vest. So it sounds like he's pretty deft at navigating the company politics now that he's in the top spot. What's he known for as a leader? So to a man to a woman ever and I spoke to said that sooner has a tendency in the middle of meetings to stand up and begin pacing in the middle of your presentation. He won't say anything necessarily sign that he likes or doesn't like it. It's just signed that he's thinking. So you can imagine people have spent weeks preparing for the CEO and he leaps up in the middle just starts pacing it can be quite disarming frankly this comes back to the criticism. Of Soon Dr to standing up in the middle of meeting and pacing as you think is not necessarily your traditional hey drive the car forward leadership. There's a big knock at Google today it's that and this comes from investors analysts even some executives of the company it's that the company is pretty much operating on autopilot. It makes almost all of its money from online advertising and you don't really have to do much besides sit there and the money comes in adding an extra add to youtube isn't exactly a high level. Decision. So the criticism is that sooner hasn't necessarily made the big move to position Google for the next decade on the other hand. When you have such a head start that Google has just not messing up is a billion dollar proposition. And what about as a coworker? What's he known for that? The best thing that's has going for him is that people genuinely like him in fact, one of his deputies Caesar. Gupta told me he loved sooner Pichai. He said the reason I stayed at Google this long as because of Dr He's someone that I trust. He moved to Jakarta because soon are asked him to. People. Say in this world where everyone is obsessed with Silicon Valley with what is happening in Menlo Park and Palo Alto and San Francisco that soon Dr a truly global outlook that he cares for instance, about Google pay in India where there are many multiples number of people using payment products in there are in the US. But tacitus surly had as much investment and one of the really fun things that is in the story is he's very much a creature of habit. You can imagine your CEO of of Alphabet you're traveling the world whenever he's in Korea he goes to the same burrito place an orders, the same Veggie Burrito. And in this world of he's hard-driving CEOS who appear in TMZ or go through high profile divorces. Everyone says that sooner Chai's legitimately just a kind nice guy.

"McGee Jay Brennan and Dave Greg Good Morning the hard act to follow right there well. I think you're up to it and much like we did with Jay. Hey we didn't get a chance to talk last week. Day I saw some of your thoughts on paper and on twitter but quick hit from last weekend the Jockey Club Gold Cup Diku and everything that came with it didn't agree with the call but that's par par for the course for me and the stewarts here good rates by both horses of Abu kind of the call takes away from the performance of both you know Roseville in sort of honor. I thought it was Kinda. Overshadowed what how well they ran I thought it was in solid effort. You know Roy Moore your skin and people give them credit for so he's tactical enough that you're going to go back to the race. In California that he won he was four why but right up on the pace so he can be he can play from the start and still finish finish which is a good thing for him to have going into the classic and Code of honor you know stepped up against a couple of quality older horses and and still continues to show improvement as Shug shoveling transfer your kid and I'm glad they didn't go into stuff. it'll it'll spice it up a bit very much and we talked to show yesterday what turned into a was supposed to be a you know. Tell us about the decision ten minutes turned into forty because because show and you can talk about the current horses and then you can talk about his Breeders Cup record you know he's he's run horses in the Classic Eight Times. He's got two seconds and third and I asked him if he thought you know this was as good or the best one of the best chances that he's had in a classic and he kind of feels it is I think so in part because he's got a quality improving horse and in part because I don't see a real stand out in the division there you know I I was even if Mackenzie had one last week is still affected him at a mile and a quarter. I think come back with a pack a little bit and now I think he's you know emit commit pack there. I you know he he he was not impressive last week and and right now he doesn't have a jockey so that could be a hindrance so I I think the the you know I I think the visual the classic is releasing. My is right now pretty wide open well it it certainly enhances the classic and we got some. Jay's thoughts will also wait for some other news in decisions. Tacitus you know who I could send as many as three with a late and Yoshida. We'll see what the tacitus call is but have you talk to Jimmy later in the week about preservationists. I don't think the preservation and the clock berry good yeah. I kind of. They were Iffy iffy. Even before we got through the jockey there pretty traditional people. You Know Oh you go to the classic going for a good race. You don't go you don't travel cross country now. It's in your own backyard. Maybe maybe say okay. I'm hearing but the put him on. A plane ain't off that race. just doesn't make any sense to me and. I'm not sure what it was tales right now. I wouldn't be surprised if maybe they they just you know. Have you know conclude are dealing. Just say thank you. Thank you for the memories. They were well some other thoughts thoughts about the weekend the the two year old swept by Chad Brown and not necessarily by Chad Brown surfers Dave that were all that highly regarded regarded coming into the early fall. It looks selflessly ran a decent race when she got in her debut. She was a bit why she was just what about a half length behind her stablemate and you know. She got a very nice trip. The other day and you know you beat a field that I didn't necessarily I think was seller but that didn't necessarily like her either so I can't you know I'm not saying that I choose my choice but look it's very you know. Handicapping is hard art. When it comes to the Grillo it's simple to spend on Chad Brown. It just just do it. Does it seven and eight. I've never seen I've Nev- I don't know of any race that he may be bad for our security security and and and dumb or something that just a guy dominates the race like Chad Brown at least in New York dominates the race Jeff Brown dominates the Mus Grill and just you know next year when it comes. I'm just circle the Chad. He's got more the ones at about boxing and you'll walk out with a little more money so any payment structure solid rates you know. I I liked about structure that he showed you different dimension in the first race. It was a slow pace. He was up on it and then he finished and then they got a bit of a faster pace and close close so you like versatility show. I need to know more about what else is in that race before. I say an annoying Kim and enter a the you know a victory in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turpin juvenile fillies served interesting I said they were aware of it at the time but selflessly not nominated to the Breeders Cup now looks set clemens got that money hidden in his closet somewhere so he can easily put up the supplementary see but it it was a weird kind of a strange thing maybe just crack but be supplemented for the raiders stuff to run and I'm sure she will do well. beyond the two year old stakes stakes midnight zoo in the Belle Dame and got you got you got her legs stretched and did what was necessary. The race as that ended up surprising to some degree aside from everything that went on in the Gold Cup four Horsfield in that Vosper that ended up being really exciting and forensic fire and imperial put on some show down the stretch cool horses you know he's still still Harvard have trouble taking that race threatens fire and last year the parts race horse averaged one the rate just a cool towards I mean that's a super cool horse right there in so small but he's got such big hardy so fast and you know I think they call it a little bit adviser prize when Friends Fire Collared Him and he still had something more to offer and he gave it to him and you know maybe maybe hard race before the Breeders Cup will help him in the Breeders Cup opposed to a couple of cakewalks that he had especially last year Vosper. You just walked around there and now last year Frears Cup. Chances may have been compromised the fact that he just doesn't run it and go to Churchill downs I mean I think he's on there three times. The probably three worst races throughout the worst rates is I thought he may well enough to del Mar a few years ago when he was in the Mitch Breeders Cup and second. I believe but maybe there's hard rates will help him. battle tough because it's a tough rate expensive very very competitor's. Maybe one or better rates on the car to the totally and chance a lot on you know. I guess you have to see what Omaha beach that rates for tomorrow how he runs. A and B what they use it for work. the the the sprint has potential to come up here one of the best races on the card and I think that race will have imperial head registered. Well turn our attention attention to tomorrow and there's a lot there's a lot of intriguing match-ups paper going into Saturday at and there's actually a nice set races on Sunday with the thirty the flower bowl in the present. We gotta start with Champagne and a green light. Go Ah to forego the hopeful. After the track was a a a slop. I don't blame Jimmy Jerkins at all for taking that route however he comes into the champagne now having to go a mile and there are at least is three others that are are major players here not the least of which is Barkley tag and Saka Toga the last time they had a two year old like like this. They kept funny side against New York breads until going to Florida for the holy bull this time they're going to go for an early open company opportunity the and it's at the highest level the first thing. I want to say that this race is there is a major scratching the race three technique. Jeremiah texted me this morning and I put it up on twitter a little while although has a lung infection and we'll come out of the race and I thought he was a significant player in the field so it's down to six source field going at that. Tis The law law you know of course is very impressive. Beating New York reds first time out had shin issue that Barkley took care of list about three weeks total of training but it's gotten back in I saw I saw at least two if not all three of his three of his works here and they're very solid workout you just wonder if the layoff going a mile with the one rate is going to happen ready to do it now. The layoff is very similar to green like oh the day difference so it's not that sort of balances out but green go with tested in stakes company and also has races opposed to one and I just like I just really liked it. I I don't know what he's going to become. I don't know how far is GONNA WANNA run but I just like the way both starts getting solid well built for uh-huh hardy type of horse who just has a great hind end you know where the power generated from and I think like the mile and beyond and I think this has a moment for Jimmy. Sake that the horses say how down and continue on the campaign Jimmy. He says out born whatever that might be but I think it'd be awful strongest training like that rate.

"Now the short oppress horses. I think Tacitus is obviously someone that's going to be heavily bet in for good reason his fantastic breeding everything points towards in handling the distance. Well, and I think he's going to be one of those horses that work out and absolutely perfect trip. I think is going to be quite a bit of speed. And I think like we saw the Preakness war of will just have a perfect perfect trip is just one of those horse racing is all about pace and the trip. And I think you know speed. It alone on the front end is so dangerous just like getting that perfect stocking trip. And in his case Tacitus case, I think he's going to be a little bit off the pace, but I just think that, you know, having the added furlongs which he would've loved in the Kentucky, Derby just going to do him. So many favors the price is short, but I can justify that. I like him and bourbon Warren, we'll just box them. We're not gonna overcomplicate this keep it simple and my throat, the Tri box, but in kind of said, ever fast and bourbon war, but I I'm leaving even ever fast as the winner because, you know, in your blog posts you bring up a great point, where that's ever. Fast is last start in the Preakness was by far is most impressive closing from as many as twenty two lengths back to finish second. That's what you want from a horse in this kind of race. Right. Absolutely. It you know, at the end of the day with the Belmont Stakes. Just you're gonna have so many horses that are going to be tiring on the front end and wit speed entered. It's very likely that there is a pace stool fast, fractions upfront, and that just benefits closer so well and I tend to for horses on a weekly basis, I love to see their last race. And I like to see them entering off their career career-best race or off victory and just to see his last race. Was it kind of came out of nowhere for me just before his best speed figure his best placing outside of the maiden win. It's just it looks like maybe are clicking. So you're gonna get a fantastic price on hand. So I mean, I can't blame you you're gonna be getting probably twenty to one somewhere around that range. So that's definitely. Well, that's great.

Here's Kirsten gillibrand saying the exact same thing about the Hyde amendment. Would you say to taxpayers out there who say, look, I support everyone having their own freedoms. But when it comes to my tax dollars, abortion, isn't something that I want to support I do not believe that that is valid argument. I think that Hyde amendment should be repealed and that we actually need to make sure that women, regardless of their income level have a basic right to reproductive care. It's about our humanity and it's about our basic civil rights. And so I will work to repeal the Hyde amendment. I would also work to codify real.

It's not a moral quandary. It is morally good thing, according to the modern Democratic Party position you back, both for it. But if you happen to think that at the very least it's moral quandary, I don't know how you support a party that says that we should be celebrating and using taxpayer money to fund abortions, the second to study they cut against everything.

War of Will tops riderless horse, rest of field to win Preakness Stakes
"War of wills s for a little more around still four to make up at city ground a quarter together Pimlico, warriors charge leads the way. Well, they're at war per long war of willa Tyler athletes, slipping through the inside shifting out just a Tenet or left-hander here comes ever fast on the inside. And oh and Dale allayed bitterly outside war of will. Wow. War of will who said there, wouldn't be any story lines in the Preakness. That's all I heard all week and all the radio interviews, I was fortunate enough to do. There's nothing going on in the Preakness. Well, well, I think we can change all of that after war of wills victory one who was there to witness. It is Keith sergeant dementia advanced media, who we welcome for the first time here to win the gate. So talk to me about the vibe from the Mark Cassie barn after war of wills win was he feeling revengeful or was he feeling very matter of fact. Well, he downplayed revenge actor. I mean dismissed the question a little bit. But then you would hear him and he you know, you'd be how you could tell I think the one thing that really bothered, the most was the way the Gary west and a maximum security connections. And you can understand where they're coming from. But they the way they almost turned it around and tried to blame hinge jockey, and his horse for the way they wrote the Kentucky Derby, I think he. He kinda got a little ticked off about it. I mean he admitted he got ticked off about it. I think that bothered him a little bit. So, you know when when it came down to it, he just wanted a chance to, to as he put it. He just wanted a chance for fair shot. And I think he got it, you got a pretty clean trip. It does not often these days that when you don't have a horse going for the triple crown that a trainer and an owner commit to running in all three races, three races, and five weeks is not how horses are trained anymore. Yet, it seems that were of will is going to show up in the Belmont Stakes. What did marquess he say about that? Yeah. He said, if all things are ago he indicated after after eight ago, his his intention is to do it, and it kinda makes sense. I agree with you. That typically you don't see it, but I think a lot of these owners and trainers are kind of aiming for the three year old award, the horse of the year award. And that's probably a part of the motivations for Gary west and teach services. Well, when it comes to maximum security now that, you know, the Kentucky Derby, was what it was. And now. You the Preakness I think they're going to aim for, you know, maybe trying to prove themselves in the Belmont. Now, I don't wanna get too far ahead of the Belmont, but six weeks after the Belmont comes this little race on the jersey shore, you know, really, well, Mr. sergeant might that race the Haskell have a bit more juice, in it, this year, if that's the first rematch of maximum security, in more of will. I think so I it's a great point. And now mind, you Haskell was pushed up a week from their last Saturday, July, who the Saturday beforehand, certainly enough time. If more will does do the three races in five weeks. You know, you don't know how he's gonna come out of it, but it does set up is one of the, you know, grade one race is one of the final ones that a summer, certainly, a lot of history there and maximum security. He's being stalled there now. So he working out there every day, I certainly expected if you tell the he's going to be running in it, then, you know, you're going to see a couple of maybe of the Baffert over since he loves running there, maybe not improbable, but you know he had a couple live contenders as well. So yeah, it setting up to be a full field and really good field. Keeps sergeant avenge advanced media. Joining us here on the gate. He was at the Preakness and felt that vibe now we were talking about the three year old picture going forward. The Belmont is coming up. I said, I didn't want to get too far ahead of that, and it seems like we're going. Get a good field there, including Tacitus who wound up third in the Kentucky Derby, and some others from the derby. How do you see the Belmont shaping up right now? He'll have to hold out a little bit of hope that maybe he can balanced back. We haven't heard much from their camp in a while. Certainly, if he was the run, I would be intriguing but I again I think national security right after the derby they gave him about a week off. He's been training for for last week since Thursday. He plans on running again, I be surprised if they don't try to point them, pointing their Marquette again into ready indicated that you're got try to run worm will Baffert a couple of pitchers didn't run in the Preakness. You would think that one or two of those guys will, and then obviously always has a couple horses that he's high on tries to the toward the Belmont as twelve. So the Preakness when the bigger field that I kinda thought it was going to be I don't know if the Belmont, gonna have thirteen where but yeah, I could see ten really really talented worse than a really good field. Wait, did you say maximum security may point towards the Belmont? He had started training again. He had taken it like a little bit of a retrieved surgery against Asian service had indicate. Did that he'd like to read them a little bit more? And now we're talking three weeks. So all things being equal. I do know that big part of their motivation is horse of the year. How do you do that? You know, it'd be awfully hard for, for him to win horses a year without running in another triple crown race in and proving himself and proving the derby with the fluke, and now at twenty million dollar bed, which I'm sure you've probably talked about a little bit where he'd like to try to get a couple of these tours is an improvement salve against word will, and long range Coty and a couple of those horses as well.

Welcome back to the coin forum that was Larry Coleman on the call of the Wood Memorial. Tacitus made a big move forward in his career in that race. I thought he looked very sharp winning. And he's definitely a major player this afternoon. In the Kentucky Derby, we had forty two people so far vote in our equine foreign poll of the day who was the most impressive winner on Kentucky oaks day.

Well, you know, Bill Maat is hall of fame trainer. And he is. Never won the Kentucky Derby, he's seeking that first Kentucky Derby score. He's got two chances this year. Tacitus who you just heard be ridden by Jose Ortiz and country house in by Flavian Pratt and country houses a horse. That's been doing very well in the mornings at Churchill Downs. He's flying under the radar. He's going to be a big price in you may want to include him on your exotic tickets. He's got a better chance than you might think. So Mike and Kurt we're able to catch up with Beaumont this week, and and talk about his two entrance and how they're coming up to the race and what's happening in their lives. And here's that interview right now. You and I were just talking about the possible pay scenario in the Kentucky Derby in a horse like country house may be coming from further back, but a horse like Tacitus ideal trip for him. If you could write the script for that race. Well, you'd hope you get the ideal trip. I mean, there's a lot of traffic problems in the German. I don't think you can prepare for it. You know, really perfectly. I don't think you can you know, map out a map out a trip. I think that's that's what develops from the gate opens. I mean, there's so many different things that can happen. You know horses. Breaking good breaking bad, you know, in everybody's kind of fighting for position.

"Can see the post positions for the one hundred forty fifth Kentucky Derby. So it was very exciting. I still isn't it? The the number nineteen holders never been a horse went out of the nineteen whole it seems right? And I was looking to see who that is. That's spin off thirty two one. You're dead. Spinoff. It's over for you. I don't think that's ever happened. It seems like that's what we talked about last year at this time. Thirty two one for spinoff. No, no. Thank you. Roadster? Everybody loves roads to not everybody. When I say everybody. I mean, a lot of people it's gotten a lot of notice many people like roadsters six to one not everybody loves game of thrones. But lots of people do ratings big on that one. We'll get into that a little bit later on broadcast. I'm trying to watch my words carefully. But I liked the name win win win. I just do it. Just sounds like somebody who's just they're just so confident it's just bursting from the seems win win win is fifteen one. But all the way out in the number fourteen post position. What's it's very unreal. As war of will. Twenty two one. And that's always the toughest spot because all those other nine hundred horses immediately start moving over to crush you. So unless you just come out of there like a cannon shot you don't have much of a chance. Anyway, don't he's going to be along a little bit later today here in my boy, blue puff say is thirty two one out of the nine the whole I like that right next to superstar Tacitus tend to one. So anyway, I love that French that French name on that horse that everybody says, well, we're going to we're going to Kentucky size it and just say, plus q Parfait. So I guess that's what we're going to say. This reminds me of the Paul Penton days, and he was governor and he couldn't pronounce fousiya Chee Pegasus the horse that went on to win. And the governor was that the new chief fish? Yeah. Anyway. None of that problem. We do have a Japanese horse in this race. That's always exciting because it makes the global interest in the Kentucky Derby that much stronger when we get them from other parts of the world, so good on everybody for the twenty that made it, and of course, the listing of the horses for the Kentucky oaks on Friday.

"You're gonna be alone on the lead. When I say on the lead. I mean in front I think he'll have a host of them right behind him chasing him, and you know, tax two three four starts back debut was on a lead. He's always been forwardly placed than last time. Not that Brady and Joe via ran away from them and puts a lot of separation between. The front two and the next two who were tax Tacitus. I think Danny thinks he got beat because Tacitus had a better trip than he did. I think tax probably hit a trip Tacitus did. Definitely you can find listen. They're a worse longshots out out there. Sources by arch out of giant's causeway, man, he's gonna be a big number on the board. He's always been competitive. He's got plenty of foundation with a couple of mile in eighth races under his belt this year alone including and then one last year in a room. So he's got three mile in eighth races. I haven't done them math on that. I'm pretty sure he's the only one that's three mile three just off the top of my head under his belt. Yeah. He is. He's the only one with three mile Neath racism. There's belt so. That's like sorry. That's good. Yeah. Another horse. I like is a win win win. His last performance closing against those front runners, really like the way he closed and got traffic to really big there in the blue dress. He's a little slow for me. I think he's a sprinter. Your biggest problem if this the kind of year where it's kinda hard to talk anybody off horses. I think your biggest problem with him. Josh, thanks for the call. You're not going to get what you should get on win win win. And maybe you have a different price in mind that I have I look at win win win. I feel worse. One three times. None of beyond seven furlongs. Yes. He's making up ground at the end of turn races. But he still never won around two turns his to turn races are considerably slower speed figure wise than his one turn raises especially as best one turn race. I just don't think he's that good. The problem is everybody and their cousin. Love the move. He made in that bluegrass and for a horse that I look at his form. And I say to myself I want thirty two one on that ores. If I want about it. I don't wanna bet them. But if I would bet them if you said to me, what price would you take on win win win. I wouldn't take a dime less than thirty two one. You got no shots in thirty two. One win win win win win. And Jude wrote up good point yesterday in the afternoon, by my standards, been the other horse that's gotten a buzz as a wise guy horse. And he's in other words, I look at him. He runs third maiden racist three times. He runs second or third and maiden races three times. He wins his fourth start. And then he wins a very mediocre Louisiana derby, I need thirty five to one on him. And he thirty five one win win win. They won't be more than twenty twenty two. Now, you could say. Be very happy with a forty five dollar Kentucky Derby winner in you'd be right? Anybody would be happy with a forty dollar when in any race. This you know in this race these horses are their prices. They should be. They will they won't be the prices. They should be should say if the tote board plays out the way, I think it will, you know, talking earlier to to Jim in Delaware. Jim talked about spotting how I spot their horses. Those wiseguy horses are easy to spot as well. Especially in this day and age of social media. I mean, I almost had a win win win for my Twitter feet after the, you know, it's very rare you see a horse like a coma win by three and a half lengths.

Oh, nine and chains. He's right there. Yeah. Sixteen foale. He's right there. And funny thing is that when you look at the head of the stretch said all right outshine looks like a lot. I mean, he's moving up. He's the only at the time was anywhere near the Batley leaders up there, you know, between between you know, Zenden and and well-defined. You know, who's who obviously well defined only win when he's on the lead by himself. But when you can't get the lead, but but the only going after him out shine, and he he's gonna just blow by these horses. And I thought outside it was an absolute lack and he had a tough time because. Good sense in a way to like. Well inside the sixteenth pole. You know? And then Tacitus finds that seem on the inside, you know, in and gets up to beat them. But like you said I thought trying to end it terrific rates. But if you what he read it to decrease. What about the fact that the Zenden ran terrific ways? And you know, the thing that you know, I never really liked to see on.

And that's Tacitus first full out of multiple ones takes when close hatches ran in loaded. Maiden race. First time out got beaches to couple of Lancs was attending very very hot piece and ran well. Came back broke his maiden right here. It's a big a grinded one out the horse. Ran third Mata. Golly is nice Chad Brown three year old now. I'm looking for the improvement. He's been training with it in scroll. He's getting his but with by throw. But we all know how I feel about training. I'd rather see the bulk of the training. He's been training. Well, he gets Lasix Jose Ortiz sticks. I don't love the draw. He stuck out in post ten but Jose is as good as it gets at getting over. And you know, we talk about some of these other preferences, and how seen a lot of speed there's no near as much speed in here. So I don't think it's going to be hard for Jose to get over the top. And maybe get a little trip in here. He's a big number on the what he's not going to be twelve to one almost golfing park morning line in this instance, I if Tacitus twelve the one, and he wins them all I'm gonna be here next week. So. Because I'll just be all have so much money on the deal with it. But he's going to be a good price. He'll be six to one. I really liked Tacitus. I think you have to respect outshine. I liked outshined to racist. Blinkers seem to help. I think his pedigree. It's going to be just fine getting to turns. And you'll certainly help that along. I think you have to respect well, defined, you know, he ever those blinkers last time it was the best race of his life. It's not like he hadn't run something close. In fact, the two civil efforts. I know they came against restricted Florida reds in the stallion series races. But he's been good. And if anybody gets loose little probably be him, though. I don't imagine that's going to happen tomorrow. And Sir Winston, sir. Winston while he saved Brown. And that was the place to be speed was really good with his day. And. You know, he he made from Brown on a track that it was tough to do. So he might be the horse of price. You wanna sneak in the number or, hey, if there is a pace and collapses, I wouldn't be surprised if Julian Peru's picking through the field to get their whistling Winston to the money. I like Tacitus a lot obviously some other contenders. Stir Betim, that's how normally goes. We'll see if Tacitus can get Bill Maher on the trail with another. He's twelve to one from post tan.

I'd never heard of him and he lived a very. Short life but Lordy he's blunt ten must've scared them this language attacking its own guts with. Victorian victorious soared he made it very clear that.

We'll Guston writing in the fifth century centuries you say I, think is the lost of the great Roman historians he was drenched in salads. And Tacitus and indeed Lucan as well he writes for the normal cooling on the city of God which is initially sponsored by the invasion of Rome. Itself by its external enemies and he tries to justify how this has happened in particular responding to the challenge that was, Christianity, so which would weaken the ethical foundations of Royal and so, the whole book is a. Polemical defense all Christianity not least by turning that challenge on its head and, say no it's not the Christians who sacked very foundations of Rome itself which had unsteady unstable foundations and he shows that by threading through the hundreds of pages of his work. A history of civil war drawn from these rather than poets and. Historians to show precisely that it was not Christiaan Entity that, undermined Rome but Rome itself that had these talking foundations. And the Christianity had been carried by the pilots throughout the Mediterranean.
