"Really looking forward to it. It should be a great day. All right, Brian lynch here on the horse racing radio network, Brian going to look forward to seeing you when we get over there next week and all the best with classic causeway over the next 7 days. We'll give them help, Mike. I know you will. Brian lynch here on HR N yeah, you know, it's a great story, right? And everybody that listens to this program knows how high I was on classic causeway going into the Tampa Bay Derby. He delivered. And then that head scratching performance at Gulfstream park in the Florida Derby. It did. It was shades of holy bolt to me. You remember holy bull backing up was the fountain of youth when he backed up and finished through the field after flipping his palate. When a horse flips his palate, they can't get air. They can't breathe. And so they just stop running to protect themselves, obviously. And that's what it looked like to me. And knowing everything is good with classic causeway physically, and hearing Brian say that he's happy with the workouts, gives me confidence that, okay, he's at least back to the classic causeway we saw in the Tampa Bay Derby. Is that good enough to win The Kentucky Derby next week? I don't know. Is he fast enough? Brian said he's going to sit just off the pace if he has to. He's confident that he'll rate and he will. You look at his past performances and he can rate. But is he fast enough? Is he, is he going to be fast enough at that mile and a quarter? To where the roses. That's the big question. We don't know. We'll find out next Saturday. It's going to be one heck of a Kentucky Derby. All right, when I come back, you'll hear from the university of Arizona racetrack industry program have a message for them and I'll take a look some historical dates in racing history as they apply to this particular weekend. And then get you ready to be the host of the show. Randy Moss from ndbc sports is going to be here to take your phone calls live on the show. You can host the show at 10 o'clock eastern that is ten minutes from right now. This is the equine form on the horse racing radio network.

"Back again. Classic causeways back. Tell all your Friends. Oh, I have, if you want to talk about the worst rappers ever. Me. I just don't have the, you have to have such a quick now, obviously there's freestyle and there's written. But like you have to have such a quick brain to mouth skill to do that. Now what's funny is I have that. When it comes to announcing, but it's something that I practiced and practiced and practiced at. So maybe if I spent 16 years working on rapping, freestyle, who knows? I mean, I could be on the Mount Rushmore. You never know. Probably won't happen though. Especially as I age 16 years, my brain capacity will be deteriorating a little bit, you know, I'll be old. But anyways, yeah, classic causeway. How about that? Travis stone is coming on the show today. He is the voice of The Kentucky Derby, of course. He'll make his 8th Kentucky Derby call this year. We'll talk Derby and oaks with Travis. So looking forward to catching up with him. But yeah, now it's classic causeway back in the Derby picture and I know he'd worked over the weekend and I kind of thought I saw some people saying, oh, pat day mile and it made sense. Now, as always, I will preface it. I'm a major, major Homer to any horse that I've called, especially in my first Tampa Bay Derby. Horse has a special place in my heart. So I'm, you know, I'm all in. But Brian lynch said that discussions with the owners and this is Marty McGee's reporting. I should give credit that I was reading some of Marty McGee's reporting. But said he said the horse, he said, I've been looking for every excuse not to run him. I can't find one of the owners, have a lot of age and have never run the Derby. So I mean, you know, I would guess there's certainly a big chunk of it that it's like, hey, when are we going to have a run on the Derby? And Brian lynch hasn't, if you remember, we had him on the show shortly after the Tampa Bay Derby. He hasn't run. In The Kentucky Derby. And so, I don't know. I get that. And by the way, they earned the seat. They earned the spot. And so they have the right. To go back and do that. You know, it's funny I had the points thing on Kentucky Derby dot com. I had that brought up. Oh, they still haven't added class causeway back in yet on The Kentucky Derby dot com points roster. But I mean, literally all this has happened in the last hour or two is we're recording mid afternoon on Monday. But yeah, he worked at Churchill downs and Brian said, we're just going to put a line through the floor to Derby and trek on. Interesting. So I ran obviously had been riding the horse and we talked with Brian about that. In terms of keeping that mound and the bad effort and the fact that they said they were not going to the race, I read obviously went other elsewhere and he won he's got wood memorial winner Madonna. A legit contender, Julian le Peru is going to ride for Brian. They obviously have had a lot of success together. But what I was thinking of, of course, from my Homer standpoint was similar to Brian said, if you draw a line through the floor to Derby, if something's wrong. Now you can't completely draw a line through it. You can if you're trying to just make every positive case for it. But it did happen. He did run not great there. Now, it was a Gulf Stream. He faced some heat early on which, by the way, he's probably going to face here. So I don't know how you complete the limit. But the thing is, I don't know that you're going to have to completely limit it because it happening is going to be baked into his price. What would his odds be? If he didn't run in the Florida Derby, if he went trained up to The Kentucky Derby, after his solid win in the Sam Davis and his solid win in the Tampa Bay Derby, neither one flashy, both pretty unfettered, you get a little pressure in the same F Davis, but not a lot. But what would his odds be, right? He was 7 to two, three to one in the Florida Derby. He's probably like a, if he trains up to it, I mean, you still have epicenter he still have Xander and you still have white a bario. You still have mode donegal. But the yak teen horses, but like he's probably still like, he's probably 12, 15 to one. If he trains up from the Tampa Derby, because in that case, you're talking about a horse who's had a really, really good two race campaign where he easily won. Now, both the Tampa Bay Derby in the same if Davis have not come back strong in terms of horses coming out of those races. And so he would have lost a couple of ticks on that, like people would say, oh, you know, there's race I've come up that tough. And him running back obviously made that race not maybe not come up as tough looking. But other than those top four I just listed like, I feel like his odds would have been lower than tis the bombs or right at or close to cyber knifes. I don't know what they're going to do with the yak teen horses. I'm.

"I told you earlier I was telling you the truth. I don't even know who the hell summer is tomorrow. Oh, he was second in the UAE Derby, okay? That's probably why I don't know who the hell it is. Charge it happy Jack third pioneer of Medina fourth in due time. Who was running this weekend, Ethereum wrote it was running this weekend. Rattling roll on the outside looking in as well. Major general gold glider still deep on the points list. Anyway, that's the rankings, and of course there are going to be still defections, horses who aren't going to go, whether it's an injury and illness, a, hey, I just want to run the path day myelin instead. But the points are done. And so if you're in, obviously, one of the cool things I thought about this weekend was that the Lexington, there was a lotto, and I talked about this last week. There was a number of horses who had points and legitimately needed these points. It seems like most years it's like one horse that's kind of gunning for it. The rest of them are just going for a very nice purse, a prestigious race. I mean, it's $400,000. It's grade three, all those things are important. But with tawny port, major general in due time, ethereal road. Dash attack, call me midnight, like all these horses had some Derby points and we're looking for more jury points and this one obviously is not a huge Derby .1. But if you win this, and you already had a few points, you're in good shape. And so in due time ends up going off your favorite now, he was the horse who was second last time. In the fountain of youth when he was the one that kind of cost that big spill, and then didn't get taken down. So he interestingly enough had, I think, 20 points already. And he ends up going off your favorite. I did see an interview in the paddock before they were shown. I saw on Twitter, I came here if it was Fox or TV or what it was, but they had Kelly breen and they're talking to Paco and discussed the race and the pace scenario and say, you're faster than the one, you're faster than the three early. So he's like, if you're at the back, I'm gonna be my heart's gonna be pounding. I thought Kelly did a really good job of PG versioning what was probably him saying, look, if you're at the back, I'm gonna scream my head off and you're losing them out. But he said, you know, you expect you to be a little bit closer or what have you, but major general obviously looking to rebound. He ended up going off at 7 to one, so people not as forgiving of that poor effort last time out in the Tampa Bay Derby, Tommy port, of course, but very successful over turf way ends up going off at 5 to one. He ended up being your second choice. I mean, in due time was a legit clear favorite. Three of them at 8 to one, Strava dash attack and Comey midnight. So let's take a listen back to Kurt Becker's call of the Lexington stakes. It's the cool more Lexington right now. It's a stone street Lexington. Cool more of the old spots. Sorry. Stone street. The stone street, Lexington. I should edit that. See, that's why I get to record an.

"Work cut out for him because the bluegrass looks like a pretty deep race. Kevin, why can fenwick win the bluegrass stakes later today? Well, I believe I believe if you look at this year numbers and I'm not a direct numbers guy, but this horse belongs in this race. And you take the horse that won the Tampa Bay Derby. He ran two races before him. He was the second faster at every pole. If he was in the Tampa Bay Derby, it just looks like he would have won that race as easy as he won the race he'd won. This horse is always always the previous trainer with Steve as mucin. We thought very highly of the source and all we thought he should run like this. Just bad race in life. Every time he ran, we just got bad race and luck. And that happens. And that's what was happening to him. And every time you're in, first time he was a gallant second going 7, 8, I mean, they ran a great number. And then he came back and every other time he ran, it was just a disaster. I mean, a disaster race. So when he ran a Tampa, when we brought him home, Jeremiah wanted to bring him home, so we did. And when he got home, he was perfect. What am I supposed to do with this horse about Kala now? I mean, I mean, the horse is perfect. He came home in great, great condition. We were able to kick him out, let him relax, we vetted him from head to tail, the horse was perfect. And so like I said, we laughed about it because I entered a maiden race at Tampa, just happened to be on campus. And we hooked a grade one winner that is the one horse in this race coming up. And absolutely, I mean, ran away from me. I mean, a great one Play Store. Sorry. Yeah. And that horse was third in the breeders cup. So he had plenty of quality to him. I know it was his first time back in a while, but our horse, you know, I don't want to discredit that horse, but our horse finally got it his way and showed how easily he could do it. And so I just looking at the numbers, he belongs. He belongs with all these horses from the horses in the wood to San Anita Derby to Arkansas Derby. He belongs with him. And I think you're going to see this is just getting better. He is absolutely coming to himself. He's learned that he's allowed to win. And he really liked it. So I couldn't be more happier with him here. And I mean, he trounces around this racetrack and just absolutely loves it and so I have really, really high hopes for it. Yeah, and that horse who he trounced last time by 5 and a quarter lengths is the Todd putter trained command performance who will break to his inside and post number one later today. Jeremiah wrapped this up with you. It sounds to me like you're in pretty good hands with Kevin. I feel good. You know, I feel like a nagging girlfriend. I just keep tugging on his shirt to Kev, Kev, what do you think, Kev? Kev, how do you feel? You know, and he keeps looking at me and he's like, I'm telling you this horse. We're leading over a different horse. So, I mean, I trust Kevin and we'll see what happens, but I trust them and I feel like we've been here. He's been here. It's only horse we have here. It's not like there's 30 more that he's got to look after. It's just him. So I appreciate it. I appreciate him coming up here. I appreciate everything and I think we're going to just give it the best shot we can and hope for the best. Jeremiah rudan, the owner of fenwick, Kevin McCarthy, the trainer of fenwick, going in the bluegrass stakes later today. Guys, all the best and let's hope all goes well in that race and we can move on to Louisville and we'll talk again. Well, thank you very much. Thank you for your time. I'd appreciate it, guys. Yeah, Jeremiah, Kevin, what a great story. Brought together in a lot of ways. There were a lot of factors that led them to that relationship. And now you can hear how strong it is. And boy, to listen to Kevin talk, no way that horse should be 20 to one. You might want to put them in a couple of bets that you have out there later today. All right, when I come back, we'll turn our attention to last week's Florida Derby and I'll look ahead to the wood memorial with the red hot trainer, safi Joseph junior..

"Derby, Derby, Derby, or Derby, and we'd get like 250% more downloads than we got the week before. It's amazing how much The Kentucky Derby leaves are little world here. But I appreciate everybody who tunes in. Freely do can't thank you guys enough for when you show up and listen to our show, whether it's one day a month, one day a week, or all four days a week, always appreciate all of you who tune in hopefully get some entertainment, some enjoyment, hopefully what else information, maybe? But yeah, big thank you to you guys. Right here at the top of the show, a weekend preview edition we are going to, we're going to try. Now, our friends at Gulfstream park have not put their program out yet, and it is getting close to publishing time for this show. So here's my hope. My hope is that I can talk about turf wake as I had all afternoon. To look at those races, and worst case, I'll publish a show of the late, because I do want to talk about the big Saturday card at Gulfstream. Now, we know who is in the Florida Derby. We know ship stational is not. I saw a suspensory tear. I believe the culprit for the reason why the runner up are actually third place finisher, I guess, from the Tampa Bay Derby, but runner up in the Sam F Davis will not be partaking in the Florida Derby. But the winner of the Tampa Bay Derby, of course, classic causeway. He will be there. He was made your 7 to two co third choice. I saw Pete, who does the morning line at Gulfstream. I saw him tweet four heavy hitters in the Florida Derby, and well, he has four horses between 5 to two and 7 to two. And everybody else is double digits are higher. Pop a cap is ten to one. O captain is 20 to one, strike hard is 20 to one who is supposed to run the temperature Derby, but scratched. And then 30 to one 30 to one 30 to one 50 to one. So a field of 11 yes. According to Pete, more like a field of four with two or three other ones that could maybe make some noise. But that, again, that's just the morning line. And then when you have four horses who were lower on the line, you have to set the other ones up. But yeah, I was definitely because I kind of sang their praises for when they drew early. And so it's a little bit of a bummer that they didn't draw early for the big card. I don't know if there was something negative that came out of the fountain of youth because of drawing earlier or if it was just a change in protocol. I don't know. I do not know, and they go to in fact they didn't run Wednesday because they had a sale, so they're kind of on now there four day a week schedule. Because start next week, I believe Gulfstream starts running Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday instead of Wednesday through Sunday. So down to a four day week schedules, they start the summer meat which leads into the fall meat, which then leads back into the championship meat. Racing never ends. At Gulfstream park. But yeah, so hopefully, sometimes soon here, they will they will have the PPs. So I can talk more thoroughly about the race because I can, I can get through and say, oh, if simplification, you know, bad starting the holy bull. Still ran good. One after the spill in the fountain of youth. I mean, I can tell you what each of these top horses did. But, you know, it's always nicer to have. I think the overnight is out. I think it's just the waiting on the PPs to hit. But, you know, as far as the draw and everything, it's a mile, and you obviously, for the long shots, drew posts 8 9 ten and 11, and so the logical types drew for post two three 5 6 and 7. Which is good in the sense that if you're, you know, if you're kind of wanting the truest running of this race, which as I said the other day, these races are obviously all preps, quote unquote. But they are also $1 million grade one races that are extremely prestigious and important to win on their own. And I would argue that at this level in the points race in the lead up to the Derby, you know, is everybody fully cranked mostly, are there some who maybe just want to run good and then really tighten the screws to the Derby, maybe? But I feel like this is a race that you try to win. No matter what, for a lot of reasons. And classic causeway drawing toward the inside, obviously makes it him, I think, an advantageous thing for him because he breaks so sharply the idea that someone is going to break with him or as quick as him and get to that turn before him when they're going to have to work over if they want to do that. Now simplifications drawn right to his outside. So it could be a matter of classic causeway going and simplification sitting off his hip. I don't know that he wants to, especially after how he ran in the fountain of youth. So we'll talk about that race a little bit more later on. A couple of I should say one new thing before we get going. I saw that the breakage Bill in Kentucky passed and so penny breakage is now here. Obviously they are not going to give you $3, 22.6 cents for your $2 bet, but there's still a little bit of rounding off there, but clearly a significant difference. And I know that often it sounds like it's not that big of a difference when you're talking about $2 bets or your trifecta paying $29, 20 cents. But when you start betting $20 a race or in some cases 200 or 2000, it becomes significant. And you know, you got to remember you're making, if you're a regular player, you're making hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of bets a year. And so it will make a difference now. I haven't read all the fine print on this kind of stuff. I got stuff to do. But I'm sure, as is the case in most businesses, you know, there's cost and lost revenue for some and it's going to be found by charging others. And the others are used to the customers. So we shall see how this all plays out. And in the grand scheme of things, though, sounds like good news, right? I thought so..

"The horse racing radio network, big stopper with the call of the honey bee, the Philly secret oath, another dominating performance. It's one that earned her a spot in the Arkansas Derby, a chance to run against the boys and maybe punch her ticket to The Kentucky Derby if her connections decide to go that direction. It's exciting. It's a great time of year. The NCAA tournament isn't full swing. There are teams, long shots, lower seats, higher seats coming from all different regions of the country. They're all working toward the final four. I guess horse racing is kind of in the same position with horses emerging from different regions of the country. Of course, that one Arkansas would secret oath. You also have Florida. You have Louisiana. You have New York. You have California. Horses are emerging from everywhere and stars are emerging. And nobody knows that better than Marty McGee from the daily racing form. He is with me now, Dave grennan going to be with me at 9 o'clock to talk about the New York courses, but right now Marty will take a look at Florida, Arkansas, Louisiana. Marty, good morning. Good morning, Mike, how are you this morning? Doing very well, my friend, and I should mention too that this interview presented by our friends at jellyfish water. We'll get to secret oath. We'll get to Arkansas, but let's start with the race that you had a chance to attend last week. And that was the Tampa Bay Derby. Really, really impressive win down there for classic causeway. I thought it was Mike. And the fact that it came back in 85, excuse me, an 84 prior speed figure kind of through everybody for a loop, including the trainer of classic causeway Brian lynch. He said to his eyes, he thought visually he ran like a 110 buyers. So the way that classic causeway dominated the race was very much like the way he had done it four weeks beforehand when I was down there for the Sam Davis. And it's pretty clear that once classic caused what comes to the bluegrass of that will be the litmus test because it looks like smile happy and zan Don and some of the other major contenders for The Kentucky Derby are going to be in the bluegrass April 9th it came and be there, Mike. Yeah, I will definitely be there. I'm not going to miss that one. I have been a classic causeway fan for much of this year. I love the way that he won the CMF Davis and to kind of solidify that form with that win in the Tampa Bay Derby. I thought it was justification for the talent that this horse had showed even as a two year old. Urich Gulfstream park now, Marty, so you're getting a look at all the horses down there in Florida, all the Derby contenders is classic causeway, the best horse in Florida right now. Oh gosh. Well, I've been here since the day after Christmas and it's always interesting to per view the Derby evolution, so to speak, how they all kind of develop. You've got Todd pleasure up there at Palm Beach towns and del Rey, where he's got four or 5 legit contenders for the Derby. You've got Kenny mcpeek down here with, well, he had four of them to start with with dash attack and tis the bomb because the bomb of course went up to turfway. And we'll run into Jeff ruby on April 2nd, but his two legit intenders are rattle and roll. Who is going to wheel back 3D weeks from the march 5000 into the Louisiana Derby, which I found kind of interesting and wrote about earlier this week. And then smile happy Kenny is on the record as saying bluegrass or Florida Derby, Florida Derby's here on April 2nd and that's already mentioned in April dying at keenland. I think that he's leaning towards the bluegrass, so we've got the winner of the very roughly run and found of youth simplification who, by the way, worked through this morning for trainer and Tony will say no, who we all know from can have from 5 years killing the therapy. So he looks like he will be one of the favorites along with the end of time in the second with you. And also wide a barrio who skipped the youth after having won the holy bowl February 5th down here. So as always, Mike, as you mentioned, there's low C tie seeds and everything in between. We got all kinds of countries being heard from down here in Florida. So it sounds to me like classic causeway has work to do to be considered the best horse in Florida because there's a lot of good ones. Well, as you know, J preven and I do a Derby watch every week and this Friday we have smile happy as the second one favorite and then there's literally a handful of forces who are 8 or ten to one that's being classic causeway epicenter star and the likely favorite for the Derby forbidden kingdom who we all have our own somewhat skeptical as to what kind of distance he's going to be able to get he was an easy way of sampling today. Simplification is in that group and then zan donn, whose Chad brand it pays instead of running him back in the Florida Derby or the Louisiana Derby. He's waiting for the bluegrass with him. Yeah, you basically got to have dozen up right there together. I am on that Derby watch page as we speak and I'm going through the rankings as you're walking through each and every horse and it's a fantastic page. There's a lot of great information on there. All you have to do is go to dot com slash Derby watch or just search for Derby watch on the daily racing form, it'll take you right to that page. You mentioned epicenter and the likely favorite in the Arkansas Derby. Going to face off with the Philly, who is going to get a lot of attention,.

"Thanks very much. I'll let you take this one, James. Why do you think it is that, you know, forever and ever, that nyra goes from longer distance to shorter distance back to longer distance on their three year old trail. I think it's a history of the Gotham, they don't want to run that race at a mile and an 8th, because they don't run mild in 16th races there in aqueduct. And that race, you know, it has like a real rich history with secretariat, usually goer and all these horses and aren't just part of the landscape. So it's unfortunate, but there's no way to run that race at two turns without it being a mile and a thrace. I think the withers this year really has surprised people because when it looked early voting had everything his own way on a huge lead and just basically just held through the stretch and it wasn't a real fast race. But it didn't look like he was beating a very good group of horses behind him, but who NoHo ran second is come back and won the rebel stakes and grant them who ran fourth has come back and run second in the Tampa Bay Derby. So Tom's right that the sequence is odd, but that withers has been a decent race this year. I'll just say that. And I'll say one other thing. One thing about the Derby is is that, yeah, with the notes with the no earnings and going into the points, a lot of years you do have, you know, you may have fields that don't have much speed in them. But other years, you get horses like promises fulfilled and Danzig candy who go on to become graded winning stakes with sprinters and they're out there winging it and then they just give away and finish up the track. So you do get a legitimate pay still in some years with the point system. We're going to take our final time out when we come back. We'll have phone lines open. We'll talk a little bit more about what's coming up in the weeks to come. You're listening to the bris net dot com call and show on HR N this is the dot com call in.

"And every Thursday night here on the network. James, another exciting week of racing last week, headlined by the grade two Tampa Bay Derby. That's correct, Bobby. Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you and HR R and nation. Yeah, we had the Tampa Bay Derby, 50 points to the winner, 85 total to the top four and classic causeway, really just made short work of his rivals. He spread in a few lens clear out of the starting K and was never seriously challenged, you know, there are some concerns about how fast he ran in that race. And we'll see in his next start, one thing about those kind of performances, Bobby, is that he looked fantastic visually. But he's not going to have everything in his own way and race is going forward this spring. So, you know, kudos to him, but he still has more to prove. Number to call in is 888-966-4776 phone lines are open now. Give us a call if you'd like talking with James Scully and recapping right now the loan Kentucky Derby prep from last weekend, which was the grade two Tampa Bay Derby classic causeway was expected to win that race. He was four to 5 in the race coming off a resounding win in the other big race for three year olds at Tampa Bay downs earlier in the meat, the Sam F Davis didn't quite have it all his own way in the Sam F Davis, but the gates opened in the Tampa Bay Derby James, and basically the race was over right then there, because it almost seems like the gates opened him to a length and a half lead before the rest of the field even knew what happened. Yeah, absolutely. And just like, you know, the way he's pretty clear was something to behold. There was a scratch, I forget who it was, but of scratched out of there. And I thought he might show some speed. But yeah, there wasn't much pace on paper to begin with. And you know, one thing about classic causeway is Bobby, in my opinion last year, he showed some vulnerability in both two turn races. He ran second and third, but he was non threatening second and third. And this year he's come back and he's won both races by open Lance at two turns. So, you know, there's something to be said about that. You mentioned earlier that not only was there a concern about the time of the race or the speed figures that he got and whatever speed figures he used, whether it's the prime power figures, the speed figures on bris net or the other publication or you're a ragged and sheet player, whatever it is, they all seem to come back a little bit slower than I think people were hoping for for a serious Kentucky Derby contender. Now, even though he has enough points now to get into the starting gate for The Kentucky Derby, it sounds like Brian lynch and his team have talked about it and they're going to run him back in the bluegrass. So keeping him on that every four week calendar instead of just having 8 weeks off between races. So we'll see what happens there. But you mentioned not only was the speed figure a concern, but his running style is a concern. He's kind of had at his own way against let's face it, not the strongest competition out there in his last two starts. And when he faces horses like, let's say forbidden kingdom or let's say epicenter who may be as fast if not faster than him early on, he may have to try different tactics. I don't think he wants to mix it up with those horses on the front end. I don't either. And I think that, you know, one story about that Tampa Bay Derby, like you said, it wasn't a proven field. You had a lot of maiden winners and allowance winners and horses that it perhaps, you know, run and stake races without success. The one horse that had won a great advice was major general. He was coming back first races within the grade three Iroquois Churchill. He was two for two for Todd putcher. And he got bit down as the four to one second choice, but he stumbled out of the gate, never ran a step, wasn't a factor. So I think there's a benefit, but the thing about The Kentucky Derby is it's going to be a bulky feel potentially up to 20 horses, 18, 19, 20 horses. You got to carry a 126 pounds and these horses have to go a mile and a quarter. And I do think there's a benefit to having at least one mile and an 8th race under your belt before you have to face that massive challenge. So I think the bluegrass will benefit classic causeway. And even if he gets beaten that race, that could be a race that, you know, in essence, perhaps toughens them up for The Kentucky Derby. So I do think there's some good to be had by Brian lynch in the connections running him back, Bobby. You mentioned Todd pletcher's major general stumbling out of the gate and never being a factor. He really looked like he was never happy at any point. It looked like Javier castellano was urging him basically a furlong into the race, and he just wasn't giving him anything. And the interesting thing was, this was kind of the, oh, the whisper horse as the horse to watch out for. You know, it wasn't tough to find him. I mean, he obviously had good races as a two year old and he was coming back for a very good trainer in Todd pletcher, but this is the horse that I think cost Javier castellano, the mount on simplification in the fountain of youth, instead of working simplification, he already had a commitment to go work major general and because of that, trainer Antonio Sano, I think basically fired him from simplification and said we are not going to come work him. You're not going to come right him. And he lost the mount on that horse. So obviously Javier thought enough of major general to not want to blow the mount on him and he just didn't run his race in the Tampa Bay Derby. My guess is that he's a much better horse than what we saw. He just was never happy at any point. I'm interested to see if they try again in a, in some sort of a Derby prep to see if they can get points form or if they just slow it down and say, you know what? Let's start them at shorter distances and work them back up. We've got a whole career in front of them, you know, we don't have to make this race. Yeah, and be in a stakes winner at Churchill downs last fall. That was his last start he had run since September. Major general a race like the pat day mile on The Kentucky Derby undercard at a one turn mile might be a perfect fit. I mean, one thing about that Iroquois was it wasn't the prettiest win, but he showed a lot of courage and determination to do it..

"In the Tampa Bay Derby, the ownership group is, I remember seeing an interview with him after the Sam Davis from San Anita and everybody said there's some characters, there's some characters well, there's some characters for sure. One guy had like a flannel on and a cigarette and like an old hat and just racing racing enjoys and accepts characters. I'm almost a fan when someone's a little bit out and left field maybe, but they were, you know, they were obviously very excited and they have a chance to go to the Kentucky area after the race, Brian said that the bluegrass is not out of play. You know, the Tampa Bay Derby is in a little bit of a different spot because you have time to come back. I mean, it's 8 weeks till The Kentucky Derby, so it's now a little less than 8 weeks as we're speaking. And do you choose to do you choose to wait the 8 weeks and go in or do you want to keep the horse fresh and also, by the way, you know, those races are worth three quarters of a $1 million or a $1 million. And they're worth, you know, big gradings and all that kind of stuff. And so, you know, winning the Toyota bluegrass stakes in and of itself, even if you don't win The Kentucky Derby is a pretty great thing. And I would love to see him against, you know, just a different grouping of runners. I feel like, you know, this is such a bit of a quirky Derby class. It obviously there's wrenches thrown into the whole thing with the baffert stuff and his horse is not being eligible and everything else. We haven't seen, I don't think I saw a stat that nobody has come back to win out of that breeder's kept juvenile. There was one horse that did win, but it wasn't the first start back, but that was the only win that any of the horses have had. We haven't seen corniche. We haven't seen there was another horse who was 11th and now forgetting the name. I just called the horse three hours ago and I can't remember the name of ors Christopher Davis source. Blue silk's three horse. 6th race at damp on Sunday. But he was coming out of the juvenile to finish 11th. But, you know, and got beat at a shortage price. And so it's kind of interesting to see how horses are not firing out of that particular race because it's obviously normally, you know, a big jump starter. I don't know if it being out west was a part of that. You just didn't get a lot of the horses from the east coast sending out. I mean, I know we had some injuries and all that kind of stuff too, but don't know. Yeah, so I think that's kind of all about the Tampa Bay Derby. Yeah, why don't we take a quick time out? We come back, we'll talk more about the Tampa card. We'll jump into the azeri and more and we'll talk about some of what's coming up this week. I will say for my Thursday column talking about the Derby class I'm kind of going to do a little bit of a state of the Derby and oaks class as we sit here 8 weeks out. We have a few now of these 50 point races, obviously all the hundred pointers loom. And it's kind of a quiet week. There's no Derby preps this weekend coming up. So we'll do a little bit of a state of the state before we head into the bigger preps coming up. So quick commercial timeout and when we come back, the JCP portion is podcast by sponsoring Twitter. We'll continue. Right after this. To.

"What we were going to get rained from like 8 to noon. So I go work out, come back, chow or do all my preparation, my ablutions in the morning. If you don't know what that word is, look it up. And walk out the door at right about 9 o'clock. And it is so dark. It just seems so eerie. It was like total calm before the storm too, right? It was windy, but nothing yet. By the time I started pulling out of my apartment complex, I see a few drops of rain on the windshield. By the time I get on the main road, which is, I don't know, a quarter of a mile from my apartment complex gate. It's raining hard, and by the time I get to a whole foods, which is 5 more minutes away, it is a complete monsoon. I mean, just rain sideways coming in like crazy. And I get to whole foods. I'm wearing, you know, got a nice suit for a Tampa Bay Derby day I'm feeling pretty good. Looking good. You don't feel good play good look at all that crap. So I run in a whole foods get absolutely drenched. The lightning is like hitting, it feels like it's right next to you. Get inside a whole foods the power gets knocked out for only a couple seconds when I was like, oh no. And so get my stuff drive to track by the time I came out of whole foods 5 minutes later, The Rain was just normal. And 5 minutes after that, The Rain was pretty soft, but steady. And I got to the track and I knew the track because of the way the storm was going the track was supposed to be kind of getting it right as, you know, right after I had seen it. And so pulled up there and there was a lot of water on the ground and what happens down here if you're not from here and I guess most of you in the east coast probably know about this too like you get these huge thunder showers and you get a ton of rain in a very short amount of time. Like Seattle back home it just kind of piddles for the whole day and you get slow build up of puddles. Here you get massive puddles right away. And so when I saw the track it was very, very wet but had been sealed and just looked like a wet sealed racetrack. The grass we didn't know. So we kind of started handicapping the card. We did our preview show. Chad Brown had said last week that this was Friday, maybe in the form that he was going to scratch money supply because the post position and the impending weather and he said he probably was going to scratch bleecker street because he didn't think she would like the soft turf in the Hillsboro. She was four for four coming into this race so she was obviously going to be the favorite if not I mean, she was going to be the favorite. She was the favorite because she stayed in. Didn't scratch, but as it turns out, the grass would help us, I think, a lot on the weather wise was the wind was blowing so hard all day that The Rain stopped about noon, maybe a little even before then, and we just had this really heavy, steady wind that kind of dried the track out pretty fast. It seemed like, I know it got upgraded to good before we even started. It never truly got to fast. But it certainly dried out significantly as the card went on. Whether it changed as the card went on, I don't know. There's some discussion about the speed figures that came out for the race and all that kind of stuff, but I just know that by the end of the day, it seemed like both courses looked good, then they both look like they were playing pretty normal. The fractions I thought on the turf were maybe just a tiny bit slower than we would normally see. They weren't slow in the Hillsboro. I mean, they went 23 and one, 46 and four. I feel like we see a fair number of like 22 and change opening quarters. My race, but this was my on an 8th. So, you know, and that first quarter there is almost all straightaway. So it kind of makes sense that it would maybe be a little quicker. But why don't we get talking about these races? The lamb hope south Tampa Bay Derby, of course, classic causeway with money supply and strike hard scratching who were 8 to one and ten one morning. I mean, those are not too favorites, obviously, but they're, I think they were the fourth and 5th choice or 5th and 6th choice, horses getting scratched. So significant and he ends up going off at four to 5. I had said I would probably set the line at 8 to 5 and thought he would go off at 7 to 5 with those other two in and obviously they come out. The odds go down. He was three to 5 for a lot of the wagering period settled in at 80 cents on the dollar. Second choice major general at four to one, you had 9 to two on ship stational and a happy boy rocket took a little bit of money at 9 to one 12 to one giant game who was a pain to load in the gate. He took his sweet time. I was cursing him. I was like, in the game, I want to get this over with. As I was washing out before the race, but let's take a listen back to the Tampa Bay Derby here is me. Race is on in the lamb home south Tampa Bay Derby. Once again, classic causeway caught a flyer and goes right to the front. Grant them away in the second spot here, ship stational up on the outside giant game. He is close up early on as well as trademark off the pace again as 5th as they go into that first turd. It is classic causeway to lead him, grant them trying to slip through down along the inside. Giant game trademark there in that second flight as well, ship stational now back in that 6th position. It's a length and a half more than back to golden glider races mid pack. Belgrade's right outside of that one. Three more back to major general is pushed along in the early going then comes happy boy rocket and spin wheel is at the back as they spin onto the back stretch. 23 and three. Classic causeway once again on a post. Classic causeway just a length and a half in front of giant game, grant them down toward the inside ship stational trademark. Now four of them lining up in behind this favored leader up front as they run past the four and a half. It's two more than back to Belgrade. Happy boy rocket tries to move up outside of golden glider. Major general still being shoved upon is being passed at the back now by spin wheel. 48 seconds flat for that opening half mile, classic causeway to the far turn. A host of challengers just in behind. Grant them down toward the inside. Here's ship stational ship stational starting to launch up on the outside drives within three quarters of a lank. Trademark in amongst horses with giant game Belgrade is trying to wind up on the outside. Happy boy rocket pushed along. Classic causeway continues to cruise to the quarter pole. A length and a half in front. Ship stational on the outside trademark looking for room just in behind with grantham as classic causeway comes to the top of the lane in front. It's classic causeway off the turn. Grantham.

I am sitting in my apartment in beautiful Clearwater, Florida. It was a chilly Sunday that I'm taping this show. And I am basking in the relaxation of the Tampa Bay Derby being over. And how good that feels. I could not do it. It's like, you know, you know how when you were in school and for some of you, this is 5 years ago for some of you it's probably still current for others of you. Long time ago, right?

But it is nice that it's in the review mirror. Glad glad the first one is done and it was Sunday. I was like, I walked into the races. We're just going to have fun today, 9 races. No big pressure. Call them like I saw him and then went home. You know how really great players like LeBron James and Michael Jordan and those type of guys like they just live for the pressure cooker.

And if you choose other, please comment and let me know who you think it might be. Right now, it's not even close. 48% of HR nation saying that classic causeway is going to win today's Tampa Bay Derby. I know that that is music to the ears of my special guest, his trainer, Brian lynch, who joins me now here on HR N. Brian, good morning. Good morning. I like the consensus. Yeah, no pressure there. No, not at all. Hey, I'll tell you what, I think most trainers would tell me, and I think you'll agree that you'd rather be in this position with a heavy favorite than the other way around saddling a 20 to one shot, right? No doubt about that. No doubt. You know, classic causeway is a horse that I have been very, very high on since his two year old campaign. He didn't disappoint in that Sam F Davis. You had to be really, really impressed with his comeback. Yeah, we were lighted. I mean, you know, I hope that when you give him a little bit of time, we gave him and the way he was working going into it that he produced that sort of a comeback race. But the fashion he did it in was just in a very exciting, so leads us to where we are today and I feel like he's going to improve again. And I think it was the hardest race on him the other day so I think he's really moved forward off he's come back around two really strong works and we've been lucky enough to have irad working each time. I think he's going to ride him with a lot of confidence in the course seems to have plenty of one two and his program at the moment. You know, Brian, you have trained a lot of really good horses. You have been in a lot of really big races. But there's only one Kentucky Derby. And when you're on the Derby trail, is it a different feeling when you're getting a horse ready for the Derby as opposed to another major event? Well, I mean, to me, it's always in the back of my mind, but I just trying not to try to stay in a level keel because it's a game of disappointments. One thing I've learned as a trainer, you've got to get good at delivering bad news. So I always try to take one day at a time and one race at a time, but it's certainly in the back of your mind..

"So plenty of ways to listen to the equine forums so many of you do all over the world and can't thank you enough for being with me again here this morning. There have been two horses to come out of the Tampa Bay Derby and go on to win The Kentucky Derby. Street sense did it in 2007 super saver in 2010. Is this the year where we see that prep race complete the hat trick? Well, we're going to find out in 8 weeks, but if you're going to break out the crystal ball and try to predict the future, I'd say there's a pretty good chance of that happening. And it's all because of the horse who is going to be the favorite in that race later today. Classic causeway. He appears to have all of the tools that it takes to win a mile and a quarter race on the first Saturday in May against a big field. He has tactical speed, he has an excellent distance pedigree, and those are, in my opinion, the two most important things. How often do we see horses that come from the back of the pack closers? When The Kentucky Derby doesn't happen very often. You have to have some sort of tactical speed to be in a striking position. I've talked about it many times. The interview I had years ago with Jerry valley. Talking about making two or three different moves during the running of that race. To get yourself in position, have the ability and the maturity to settle. And then move again. That's what it takes. I think classic causeway has that style. And as pedigree, I mean, come on, you want a mile and a quarter pedigree. It really doesn't get a whole lot better than classic causeway. Sun a Giant's Causeway out of a thunder gulch mayor. He'll run all day. And then you mix in that tactical speed. He's one of my top horses on my list right now for The Kentucky Derby. The only thing that made muddy the waters a little for classic causeway. And this is true for all of the horses in today's Tampa Bay Derby. Is the timing? What do you do? If you're the owner of classic causeway, and he wins again today. And let's say he wins convincingly. Just for argument's sake. He certainly has plenty of foundation with three starts as a two year old. And now two more races at three, he'd be undefeated at three. If he wins today, will his connections try to squeeze in another race between now and may 7th certainly could perhaps the bluegrass at keenland in four weeks. Or do they decide to train up to the Derby off of a bit of a layoff? Now you're asking the horse school amount a quarter. Off of an 8 week layoff. It's not like it's a 12 or 13 week layoff. It's not like it's a year layoff. It's only 8 weeks. We know he can run well fresh. He's done it. On a couple of occasions in his career. Broke his maiden at first asking at Saratoga last September. He came off the layoff in his three year old debut to win the same F Davis last time out. So we know that he can run well fresh. Do you take that approach or do you try to sneak in that one more race? That's always been my issue with prepping in the Tampa Bay Derby. The timing of that race really isn't ideal. If you go to the bluegrass, you risk not leaving anything in the tank when your horse gets the Louisville, especially if the bluegrass turns into a knockdown drag out stretch battle. That can be taxing. I'm going to be joined by classic causeways trainer Brian lynch at 9 o'clock eastern. And I'm going to ask him those questions. And we'll see what he's thinking. What's the strategy going forward? Now, he's probably going to give me the standard trainer answer. Hey, we're just worried about today. We just wanted to get past today, then we'll worry about. But you have to be, I know, especially somebody like Brian lynch, who has had so much success, he's thinking ahead. He knows what the game plan is here. Okay, if we run well in the Tampa Bay Derby, here's what we're doing. I'll ask Brian coming up at 9 eastern. So stay tuned for that interview. I'm sure that he's just happy that he wasn't running in last Saturday's fountain of youth against Paco Lopez. So many of you, myself included, still trying to wrap our head around the fact that Gulfstream park stewards took no action against Paco immediately after the race. Allowing the result to stand Paco finished second with his horse, no changes. Essentially, allowing Paco to get away with a dangerous reckless move which resulted in two other riders being dropped off of their mounts. Could have been a lot worse than it was. Four days later, the stewards announced that Paco would be suspended for 14 days. And again, so many of you, myself included, still trying to wrap our heads around the fact that.

"On Gulf Stream park and their big day, of course, we'll talk a little Tampa Bay Derby, which is our big day, of course. Marty even gives us a little news that I didn't know. I mean, I'm a quote unquote insider, right? At least the Tampa. And maybe an exciting new addition to the Tampa Bay Derby field. So all that's coming up and more with Marty. I we might be having a third guest this week. Not a 100% sure. But I think we might be. So I might move back, David Harrison, the NHC champ to Thursday's show, sits a little of an old school horse player Thursday, because really outside of Tampa. There's not a ton to weekend preview. She dares the devil is coming back in the azeri. So we can certainly talk about that. She's going to run against sisi, so 9 horse fields set to go. There. And it's, you know, but so I think it might work out good. What had happened was I had an invitation out and I didn't hear back and then heard back and I'm like, oh, okay. So it actually kind of worked out good. So we'll probably have a three guest week. This week, which is good. And so looking forward to that. But I don't want to say the guest till I tape the interview. Exciting young trainer in New York. How about that? That's what we're going to have on the show. But looking forward to it and looking forward to the next couple of days as we build up for our Tampa Bay Derby, we can expecting a full field. I love to joke with our racing secretary. I was like, are we allowed to have graded stakes races that aren't 12 horses every time? It seems like so far that's been the experience, which is a good thing, right? I noticed that the purses are a little higher, which I think is pretty traditional for tracks on big days. I think you want to try to do. I mean, I'm assuming this is a case I haven't talked to the race secretary about it, but I assume that you want to lure in as many people as you can. I think the main special weights are going for about 40. I think there's two of them on the card, so. You know, if you can get a couple extra horses to show up because you're running for a little extra dough. And obviously all eyes on Tampa that day. So it makes sense to want to put out the best possible product. So looking forward to the weekend. I won't be nervous till Thursday, I feel like the Sam Davis calmed me down a little bit. And actually the two turf graded races before the same Davis helped with that. I was really nervous before those. And now I feel like, okay, I know what to expect. I know I'm going to be nervous for the Hillsboro and the Tampa Bay Derby, but at least know what to expect and my boss made a great point. She goes, it's just the tenth race at Tampa on a Saturday. And I know that that's not true, but it also is kind of true, right? Like, I don't know how many races they're running, but it's probably the tenth of the 11th, the Tampa Bay turbine. So it kind of is just the tenth race tampon. There's just a few more eyeballs watching, that's all. Replay will be shown a few more times. Nothing big, nothing big, nothing I can't handle. So looking forward to that. Somebody I saw a quote recently, I think it was actually no, it wasn't him. But something to the effect of like, you know, things that you worry about now, in 5 years, you're not even going to think about them. You know, much. And it's kind of a good point, right? Like sometimes we get so worried in our day to day stuff that you, you know, you think like, oh man, everything so this is so important. This is so important. And then down the road, it's like, you know, do you think about that day? Maybe once in a blue moon, but it's certainly not something you should. Be all worked up at. So I'm working on that just as you guys are working on stuff as well. We will talk some San Anita, of course, big Saturday there. Monday card there as well with Golden Gate fields, kind of weird watching on a non holiday Monday. As the races are where I'm at there, just about to get started. I'm recording on early afternoon, at least this part of the show. We'll talk with Marty a little bit later. But yeah, so I do definitely want to talk about them. I want to start with the news of flavian prat and umberto rispoli, moving back east to New York, not surprised, not surprised by the one as much as the Pratt one, which sounds od because Pratt's ridden back there more. And we've seen, you know, and he's a he's not success back there, and he's written for Chad quite a bit. I would have to think that that was a part of the thing is just that there's an agreement to ride more for Chad Brown. I was a little surprised in the article I read that, you know, kind of one of the main reasons for it was, you know, wanting an eclipse award. And maybe it's just because I'm not a jockey or a trainer or an owner or a breeder or something like that, but I was like, that would be like one of the last things I would care about. In my career, I would care about winning big races, and I would care about money, and I would care about good experiences and living somewhere where I wanted to. And I think that if you're at the top level and you're doing those things, certainly in eclipse award can come. Is there bias towards east coast New York connections when it comes to eclipses? Well, I'm sure there's bias for turtle total earnings. And winds, and when you run more days in New York, I mean, they run four most of the year, and they run 5 or 5 during Saratoga. Whereas del mar and San Anita, they don't run that much. They usually run three days a week now for a lot of San Anita and del mar. Del mar runs four or are they still at 5 sometimes? I forget. But it's still going to be more days and more races in New York. So it makes sense if that is a proper motivator. But again, you know, if he's going to be riding for Chad Brown and Barnes like that, you know, I get it. And certainly both riders are very talented and we hear so much about them on the turf, and obviously turf in New York is not a huge thing. I don't know if they'll plan on going to Gulfstream in the winter, or if just staying out. I feel like we've had Jose RRTs twice in the last couple of years. So yeah, I'm going to stay in New York for the winter and then he bolts like he's there for a couple of weeks. He's like, it's cold. Why am I doing this?.

"He is a really nice colt and that was coming out of greatest big companies. So, you know, he had a little bit more seasoning than I had the model COVID, but you know what? Like I said, the way he ran the way he finished and with all the problems he had. And he got a really good thorough graft, and I'm not, you know, not something that you're going to react from. I don't think so I think going off that race he's going to be definitely should go forward off that race. Where does he go next? Well, we're going to the Tampa Bay Derby. Yeah. Yep. That surface down there can be a little quirky too, but he handled that surface just fine. Yeah, Tampa Bay Derby seems like the next logical spot. Yeah. Yeah, well, I've had him down there since December. So he's been training over it and he really seems to get ahold of that track and it's a really, really nice track to train over the cushion is fabulous. I thought maybe when I first was down there, the sound a little hard to be, but my assistant told me this is no, no. They bounce off of this track. This is a really good track to train on. Talking with Eddie Barker, who is the trainer of ship stational runner up in the CMF Davis last time out. He is a two time stakes winner as a two year old in the New York bread now pointed for the Tampa Bay Derby. Eddie, he didn't waste any time getting to the winner's circle. He broke his maiden at first asking last July at Saratoga. Did you know coming into that race that this was a horse that could really, really run and he might be a little bit different than some of the others that you had? Yeah, we were I was very confident in the first race. I mean, he was training really, really good going into that race. I actually trained him with an older horse and he just trained like a really good horse. And you know, I was, I was pretty confident. You never know first time out, but he really, you know, he really ran a big race, you know? You know, it's amazing. Eddie, I started by mentioning the fact that you're always a perennial mainstay at the top of the leaderboard with that under 20s claiming challenge, which is for stables that have less than 20 horses there up in New York. And for you to be here with a horse like this, having so few horses, that's really remarkable. The odds are so stacked against anybody that has a small stable. You're right, Mike. You know, in this day and age was three, four, 5 trainers having most of the well bred horses and the extensive forces the guys in this awful lot of good trainers and good horsemen that have ten, 15, 20 horses that sometimes will never ever get the opportunity to get a cult like this. And it's unfortunate because there are a lot of good horsemen back here. All over the country, really, that, you know, they go to work every day and they put the ref it in and it's just unfortunate now those horses don't get spread around to people like that. And it's something I think I think it is an advantage to have a really good horse with a smaller trainer and that's a good horseman and been around a while. He's going to get all the attention he needs. He's not going to be get lost in the shuffle. He's not going to be a workhorse for somebody else. So I think it's. I think he's an advantage. And I think, you know, I think it's going to start changing because he. And believe me, I know all these bigger trends they will do a great job and with so many horses I don't know how I don't know how it's possible to keep track of them, but they got apparently, you know, they have good people working for them and just but I just think there's an advantage for small to train to take care of a horse like this and just guidance iteration. Hope you get there. Did you ever want to have bigger numbers and a bigger stable or were you always comfortable Eddie with having that 20 to 25 number? Yeah, Mike, I'd like 17, 18, 20 losses because I don't miss anything. You know, you got 40 or 50%. I don't know how you could possibly pay attention to every one of them. You know, I get to the bonus 4 o'clock in the morning. I drive, I leave my house like it's three in the morning. I get there four four 15. And the first thing I do is I go to every horse, you know, my room is now to take advantage of and what have you and they get they all get individual attention and that's an advantage for a smaller owner and you try to get the most out of the horses that you possibly can,.

"Obviously tomorrow with Dale as far as the NHC as a whole, but David Harrison, victorious and gets the $725,000 for his winning effort. But again, I think it goes back to kind of an optics thing and I think that I get why there's some heat going towards the Jonathan about it. I get why people some people are upset. I think, as I said, they'll obviously address it more. On their show. And we can come to a little more firm judgments on, like I said, at first, my reaction was, okay, he broke a rule. Got d-q'd. He said, he's sorry. That's it. Some of the other stuff that came out in the subsequent articles reads a little shadier and deceptive with getting a bit runner and saying, you're going to stay in your hotel room because of COVID reasons why flying out there seems a COVID exposure, but I don't know. You know, I don't know. So we'll see what happens with that. But it was quiet Monday and it makes sense that that was kind of the lead story going around, and so we'll follow it, I guess, I don't know. Like I said, I kind of moved on from it quickly, but I was a little surprised that it became as big of a story as it is. And some of that's probably my ignorance about, you know, maybe I need to step back and look at like, okay, if I was a horse player in that contest, you know, I mean, because what advantage was to be gained? I mean, I suppose there's an inherent advantage to being on track, or at least there could be, I don't know if what Jonathan's analyzing of live horse flesh skills are. I don't really watch the Fox shows or listen to their podcast. I don't know, you know, I know him from having him on our show and being on their show and just being in the same Twitter spaces on occasion. But I don't so I don't know about his acumen. I know obviously he's had some great success in some of the tournaments. And all that. But is it an advantage to be at the track? I suppose you could say it is. But really, I don't even think it's about that. It's just that there were rules. And you know, it's the wiggle around the rules that seems to be rubbing people the wrong way. And I understand that. Interesting story. And I will, of course, talk about it as we go throughout time and through this week. Holy bowl week, get excited for that. Starting to see, I feel like the three year old class starting to kind of sort itself out a little bit, as we'll talk about with Nancy baffert won the southwest and he's obviously if if things were a normal year where he was eligible, you know, we'd see a lot of his horses up at the top of this list of points getters. Instead, we see papa cap at the top. We see epicenter of the Brad cock source. We see rattle and roll the Kenny mcpeak cores. So they said might come back in the Tampa Bay Derby. That was announced. Kenny was on with HR and talked about how he thought I thought was interesting is he said Tampa's traditionally attracted can play to off the pace types. And this past weekend, especially Sunday, I thought the inside was not good. And I think coming from off past just being outside was better. I don't think it was so much of a speed or a non speed thing. And I talked about that a little with a manual yesterday. But I think the Tampa what it is and this is true with a lot of dirt tracks. And so I think you have to be in the hunt by the quarter pole. I don't think of it as a track where people are coming from four or 5 links back at the top of the stretch and winning because at least for me this year that has not been my experience. Calling races. Most of the dirt races, I feel like if you're not within two lengths turning for home, you're not in the best of shape..

"I was telling a friend that i said you. Just don't see that like you'll see where horses go by top the stretch midstretch and somebody comes back. It's so rare to see a horse not only go by could go by with pretty good momentum. Who's a great one winning caliber horrors and then in the last fifty yards maybe lose all that momentum and buying control combat. It was strange immediately afterwards. You know i went right to the social. Media's oh god what are people saying about this and the early sentiments seemed to all be that ricardo santana stop writing that he gave up. He cost the horse the race I saw david air go to chime in with something. More to the effect of ricardo. Santana didn't do anything wrong. The horse started to pull himself up. You know. I don't get why people are saying that. Let's see let me get david's exact quote i understand. People saying santana misjudged the wire will. He didn't misjudge the wire That clue was what happened but he said the horse just turned his ear forward like he thought he was done. how can i forget replied graph. Everybody roasted of how can i forget. It's always the writers fault when a horse loses by knows carry on and it seemed like after that common a fair number of people started to not come to ricardo's rescue but just seem to say yeah horse pulled up. i think i saw check simon. Say something. well that's what you get with silver state. I'm like silver wind like six races in a row. Chuck may maybe. He's got a little a little hanging in his game but like you know it's not like he doesn't know worth is there are there there was the essex i think he made the leading idled a little bit but for the most part like he's extent like he extended his lead in the met mile for midstretch to the wire he obviously made up ground to win the oaklawn. But he's kind of a horse that but no i. I just don't agree with that sentiment. But and i love chuck checked him. We can disagree on stuff but you know it was what it was i. I watched it a couple times. And i just to me. It just looks. Like i don't know that ricardo gave up. I just thought i was talking to chris griffin after the racist and i said that horse in that situation i feel like that horse just wins that race ninety nine times out of one hundred. You just don't see that happen that late in the game you know because chris had made it you started to go into the we're kind of processing the call. Because he had said let there be no doubt or silver state leaves no doubt right when he said no doubt the other horse game started to come back and i told them i go. I've called a racist like that a thousand times nor is never comes back so i said you just said silver state. Screw you chris. He didn't he's obviously made a lot of very upset. But i said that was an attack on you because like i said all i care about the race call but i hope you guys know that was blatant sarcasm. Sometimes people don't get my sense of humor. I've had people like message me before they were. Did you say you couldn't tell that. I was laying it on a little thick there. How do you get the rest of the show. How do you get like my twitter account. I'll i'll post like blatantly sarcastic stuff and people will answer it as though it was serious and i'm just like how do you follow me if you don't get that i was kidding around there but anyways but it was. It was a peculiar race. And whether it was ricardo's fault whether the horse pulled himself up whether mind controls just the game is source in the history of the world. A big win for my obviously. It's it's listed stakes. It's not a graded stakes. But you know. He's one that i kind of gave up on and i think he's he's kind of proven to you know he's had a little bit of a comeback year. He won the neighborhood which is great to iran. Very well in the carter back in april. You know it's just been a good year from. I think he's made like four hundred thousand nine quite four hundred but three change. It's pretty good pretty good year for horse. I thought i. I'm i'm probably a little too quick on the trigger to think horses are done at the top level my worst opinion of the day even though i still think it was a good opinion. Just didn't play out the way i thought it was was chubb wagon Total go against for me. A short price ended up going off at even money. But kinda got up. Perfectly cozy trip under joe. Martinez sat right to the outside of the early leader Precious pounced on that one opened up and then was able to hold on Certainly you know. This was the mildest sixteenth. I certainly don't think she wants to go. Mile an eighth and go to the distaff or anything like that but You know to me super short prices on horses trying significantly different or difficult. Things is just not a long term winning proposition. So i stand by the opinion even though it was wrong. chip wagon was decent. Go their But again you know for the the results oriented type. They're gonna say oh you your you're and that's fine. They can think whatever they want. I'm just trying to give you a clue into the process of thought and and also the process of thought after the race. 'cause like i said it was wrong. And what did i miss out on. Missed out on a two or four dollars. Twenty cent winner. There's worse things to miss out on but nice performance. I mean it's such a cool horse right so easy to root for state bread type runners like that pennsylvania brad and just a very very nice effort but big data parks in lots of excitement and And buzz there was there was parks. Buzz on saturday Belmont park will dip in their real quickly a couple of big favorites one very easily. So there's not too much talk about the athena stakes pocket square Rallied from off the pace to score very easily. I think it was Johnny brielle set the call. It was chad. Brown's one hundred graded stakes at belmont to milestone and the kelso life is good Just pounded two rivals. Basically 'cause chant Pulled up out of the race. They said that it was the same injury or same spot that injured himself I think in the tampa bay derby so You know that was a long-term drag to think that his racing career probably over After the injuring that again but life is good continued his march to wherever he's gonna end up next. I don't know he's a sprint. British kept sprint horse at dirt mile horse. I'm sure he'd be a good town in both. Maybe they maybe they try longer. I don't think so but Yeah big performance as expected like i said you know. I don't know what you learn when one nine shot wins like a one. Nine shot should teach learned that the horses. You know if anything's still holding decent form i guess. That's what we learn. I'll go to churchill downs. The bourbon trail stakes. This was i. Should i earlier. I said that chubb wagon was was maybe my worst opinion on the day in terms of result king fury was way worse. He was one to two. And i just didn't see it man. I just thought this horse was over hype. I know he wasn't facing a lot in the bourbon trail. So maybe i'm still write about the top horses but he won by thirteen lands. I mean every every inch that he poured it on down. Because on the turn i own. Now he's running good. This is going to be painful. Stretch and then sure enough every stride. He was pulling further away. And i'm like all right all right brian. You can go ahead and wrap up on this horse. Don't make me look too bad. Brian and just kept running. Away was awesome performance for king. Fury kenneth mcpeek sources seem to be pretty good right now at churchill in king fury victorious in the bourbon trail. The dogwood stakes carry caper now. Five for five. This was a big win. I kinda said that you know. This horse is touted. Obviously it'd just kind of one of those under the radar undefeated types but now under the radar not so much. Great three winner Undefeated five for five. And this. I thought visually was the most impressive Of the efforts just a real real. Wow effort. I thought to me one of the more interesting races on the day. Churchill was the heritz creek and it ended up being everett song. Coming over from pimlico for dale bennett. Pablo morales the race. Fell apart. a little bit they. They want pretty quick for seven furlongs on the main track. Twenty one and four forty four and three and the horses are one-two-three early all finished fifth eighth and tenth The horses who were seventh ninth tenth early finished one two and three everett song.

Derby Hopeful Independence Hall Among The Horses 'Testing The Waters' Saturday At Tampa Bay

"Ocean night for Trainer Care McLaughlin stacking stamping himself as one of the top OP. Three roads in the country at that point is we know he would come back in the Tampa Bay. Derby things didn't go. According to plan that day he would be given a break and then continue on throughout the rest of his career but ocean night. Very very talented and Kieran back in the SAM. F Davis later this afternoon with Alisa. We'd who is another horse. That has a lot oughta talent and Karen with me now on the horse racing radio network here in good morning. Good Morning Mike how are you. I'm well my friend. How about yourself? Great Oshawa lead. This is a horse that you know has ability has shown it throughout his entire brief career. Last time out runner up behind shot ski in New York. Tell me a little bit about Asia. We where is he right now. He's on the van had into Tampa is A really nice big curling colts with Great Mind does everything right and he wants to distance of you know as far as they write the races because we feel like so. That's a good sign for going forward but Unlucky to lose Robson last time it came from well back doc just just missed came out of the race in good shape. I'm talking to Rick Nicholls. We weren't sure what we're going to run. But we're happy to get him back in the talk to that top. Yes it's interesting. You talk about the distance factor in hill as long as they can write the races he debuted at Saratoga. Last August. I at six furlongs. He was fifth that day kind of had an inside trip and then came back at a mile. You stretch them out and boy did he show his true colors that day. He drew rafter win by more than four lancs. Yeah that was a big effort. We knew wanted to go further. Most of the time horses improved. Second can start third start to. Hopefully he'll keep improving. We have to prove today to to beat this independence hall. He's very talented. So we'll see how it goes but we're ready to go. Have you gotten a chance to see independence hall in person. I did see Him I saw his hind feet kicking up The rams no that's wrong. Yeah so tough to the side of my cat is handful Craig job with the horse and these very talented very fast horse today. There's some speed hopefully entertained entertained similarly cross because we'll be well back making along that race track Kieran is different than a lot of surfaces. At least I've been told that Ah from your perspective is a guy who won more than fifteen hundred races in his career that that track at Tampa. Hi How would you describe it vary Sandy. Hi flays Nice job. Sometimes it can get a little bit speedy but today there's there's a lot of patient or raise so a horse going to get an uncontested lead is pretty fair track and the main thing is for us with his source. At this time it was either. Go Up for the withers servers. And you didn't want to go to Al Queda in on a deep hiring tracking them on eight. I start back this year. And and Holy Bull is Speed favoring short run into the stretch at Gulfstream so we didn't really want to that so so we we had to think about it but we side to go here to get started them. We'll we'll make plans after to go next but just this. Hopefully it works out for us. Yeah I was going to ask you. That question is is. You were mapping out his early season course here have you. Have you thought that far ahead is to if if things go well today. Do we stay there for the Tampa Bay. Derby do we go to New York if you really given it that much thought yet or you just get past today not too much but York we will well not do next one. Is the Gotham one mile so We could end up for the wooden Morio there but we have a lot of obsolete in Florida and Tampa so a lot of different options though this take it one day at a time so literally one one day at a time. We'll figure it out. How about the inside post position? Going a mile and a sixteenth at Tampa. Well it's okay It's fine because oncoming from off the pace yep in that one we'll say ground down inside and like I said there's a couple of really fast horses and we might find ourselves even last talks to last but Joel Ario the faster. They go further when I get back. But he's a great rider and times. He's moved well. This hopefully take time at a fast last talking trainer Care McLaughlin here on the horse racing radio network. Karen how do you. How do you approach approach in view these early season prep races? Well like I said we're just happy to get back to the racist. Get Him in a starting gate. Agai- you get a race under his belt and then we take it from there and just see where to go next but you just want to get back to the races and have a good performance. We don't I'll have to win today to still feel like we have a derby horse or of course point that way. It's three zero Tom. Years Great to have a nice. Oh so he'll tell us Where we go and how it goes you know we won't force the Derby on but hopefully takes US A? It's a great eight point and you and I talk well. It seems like every year. Now you and I have a chance to catch up in the spring a couple of times making your way down the road to the Kentucky Derby and that's a great position for you to be in because it means that you're getting live three year olds that are making their way toward the first Saturday in May Have you. Have you changed your approach or tweaked anything over the years in terms of trying to get a horse to peak on the first Saturday in May when you get there. I know how much you want to win it not not really no we We try putting much do the same thing we try to get there. It's a lot about the horse and And you you just hope that you do get there with a nice sound hoarse. And even the best shot to to get their win but We've run fourth three. He Times second once. It's a tough race to win but the price there a quarter of these days also I tell everybody that just to get a horse in the starting gate in our sport is a major accomplishment. And then if you're lucky enough to win a race any race. That's a huge accomplishment to get to the Kentucky Derby current put that in perspective for me. Yes it's very hard to get their twenty horses there and The prep race. It now become come very important because of the money behind them. Two million dollar racing to buy one billion dollars craps everywhere. It seems like so they're important to for a horse down. Nice China when some of these races and the Kentucky Derby the Kentucky Derby everybody everybody dreams about time to win it and It's great to have a horse to that. We think has a chance to get so often when we watch golfers was on the PGA tour. They'll talk about not looking at the leaderboard throughout the round the Kentucky Derby earning spot in the starting gate is based on points as it has been the past ask several years. Do you even pay attention to the points. As you're going down the road or use figure okay. If I got a good enough horse the points will take care of themselves. Yeah that's that's the way you have to look at is. The last crap is so important. And you don't want to run if you're not running well by that but I you know in April roller to you. You made all the points of those races so If the horses takes us there the points of will be earned and you know. We won't not door obviously. We're talking about obsolete because he's in the spotlight this afternoon in the grade. Three Sam f Davis but are there any other cure McLaughlin. Three year olds olds. We should be keeping an eye on. Well we only nominate one other one in that SPA city and he actually runs today and I made some a at Gulfstream and he was second last time and still Green Bay Colt by street cents out of Sarah Louisa. He's that we think he has a chance to to get there. Get his maiden broke today. We could possibly have a horse for the Derby. But it's you know he has to break his bait and that's take us there or the preakness or something or the Belmont. So he's He's a talented code. The only other coat with how he is as good as it gets he is trainer. Care McLaughlin here on the horse racing radio network here and always so generous with your time. I really appreciate it all the best with Odua this afternoon and go get it done. Thank you very much perhaps.

An Interview with Jockey Daniel Centeno

In The Gate

09:24 min | 3 years ago

An Interview with Jockey Daniel Centeno

"He's won nearly twenty nine hundred races here in the United States and nearly nine hundred more in his native Venezuela. Many of those wins have come Tampa Bay downs. Where Jockey Daniel? Centennial was in search of his seventh riding title even earned his first ride in a triple crown race. The preakness where we finished eleventh on it always mining all jockeys have obstacles to overcome. That's obviously the nature of the business. But one year ago Daniel Centennial had an even tougher burden to bear in January of two thousand. Nineteen centennial's longtime partner Ashley. George died after a nearly lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis roses. She left behind their daughter. Jasmine who's now in seventh grade. It's tough enough being a single dad and oh by the way Santana also has a twenty year old son son in college but it's pretty tough to work from home when you do what he does. So let's find out how he makes it all work as we welcome for the first time here to win the gate jockey. Daniel Centeno already. A handful of wins for you at the Tampa Bay. Meet a place where you've had quite a bit of success over the years more so than in Maryland where you ridden over the summer. What's been the key to your success in Tampa I dunno being here for light Fifteen sixteen years now for my first time and I I talk like it. I love the weather. I'm never been relieved. Grind with the cold weather. I never try to stay up on the winning thing and I did year by year. You know writing better courses that train and I got to my support here at the beginning from gaming as Kathy O'CONNELL and ride them for their like. WHO So? Maybe you know. Open a lot of a lot more awesome around the track and you know all my area that had been working for Greg to you split you. Year between Laurel Park in Maryland and Tampa. But now I know we're not going to see you what aqueduct in the winter based on what you just said but what made you choose those tracks supposed to say New York or California well because People that are right in for here in Tampa wants to go to Laurel Delaware and the year see bars. So that's like my shadow. God Nora Bill and it's pretty time so I'm really basically driving them. Everywhere are but We're doing good and a lot of oxygen around jockeys are said to have particular writing styles go for example Paco. Lopez takes horses away from the gate aggressively. Everybody knows that likes to go to the early lead. Pat Day was known as wait all day coming from behind. Nine Calvin Burrell is Calvin Bo Rail. You know where he's taking is horses. What do you consider to be your style? Well I I would say eighty two. I like to be more delay but You know it depends on what kind of house I've gone awry but I would like to be close to my thousand dollars outbreak throats to the Leo to pay Being the lead. But it's a defendant to pry. Sometimes you gotTa Jenny a little bit your style to fit all on the horses you know and then workout good too but I'm I feel more comfortable. Really close to the lay or something. That'd be proponent department of your nearly two thousand nine hundred career wins. You've won five grade three races in your career and a single grade to aboard ring weekend in the two thousand fourteen Tampa Bay Derby. You weren't a ride in the preakness as well in two thousand nineteen. What do those kinds of races mean to you? They they mean a lot for me. You know because I can help your mom. I Don t still down so I'd be doing building my curry of keying in this country like little by little step-by-step working hard right in the for different track The Great State for me the main a lot for me you know like I were so hot. And it's like a bay off for my work and I'm never give up and try you know especially luckier when I wrote a pregnant of like a drink of through. You know the the big horse and it would broaden your really good him. Kelly Rowland the ordinary. They give me the opportunity right. Trading is what so I drink too for me.
