"The Philip called lily moon and that was like a really tough race. And that really she could not get a whip on harass if you hit her she stops. So I was sitting last and they open up I pass inside from last to the first place and we went everybody like 5 horses to the line. Me and Paul versus to the line and the one by like an ahead or something. I like then it was like top chalk is as well. You have a few nice names up in German as well. I mentioned the fact that you speak for different languages fluently. You talked about having to learn English when you were stuck in Dubai after your first horse didn't make it. English, Spanish, German, and of course your native language of Portuguese. It was that kind of the same thing was out of necessity that you had to learn Spanish and German. A 100% was a ghost necessity necessity, as you say, it was not because I was keen to do it or anything. And I think I have a gift from God. I can simulate things and learn things pretty fast, let's say, you know? If I hear two times three times that word, I believe it hardly goes on my head. If I put attention on it. So and that thinks that I can not learn. Example, play golf and the worst person ever. And play guitar. Two things I would love to do, but I never managed to do. I tried, I tried to try it and I gave up. On those two things. You know, one of the articles I read as I was getting ready for the show was story that was done down at Tampa Bay downs by Mike Henry, who is the he works in publicity at Tampa Bay downs. And it was a fantastic story. And one thing he mentioned in there is that you also enjoy driving muscle cars. That's something you're pretty good at. Yeah, I love that. It all goes together with the speed on horse race on a bull ride. I love shooting as well. I think everything goes to one side. I did a few years of MMA as well. To keep my weight down, so all these it helped me to become a good ride and I like that kind of thing. And that's I believe why guitar and the goal of the suit into my system. I don't even know if I'm less hand the right hand when I go to that. How about with the stick, you're left and right, right? You can do both. I can do both very well on the second on riding it. Yeah. What was it that eventually led you to step away from riding and say, okay, I'm not going to do this. I've done it for 14 years. I had to do something different. It was a kind of drama, actually, and if you look on open Internet, you can see there is a 15 minute video. It was the year 2019 August 24, if I'm not wrong, was a day in Norway. And I have 6 rides. And end up winning 5 races out of those 6, but I wasn't able to ride because I took Lasix to get my weight down to manage to get my weight to the race day. And I was some weeks before. I've always got done and adopting. So and then they only gave me the announcement. I could not write 5 days to the race. I have all my rights. Everything was said to I was looking forward for the day. I have even some Australian friends coming over and then the jockey club called me and say you show up in the office because we have a problem. So I say all right. And then when I got there, they say you can not we're going to suspend you for 30 days. And even on the I said, I tried I tried everything to write that there and say you can take all the money I make today, you send it to Syria, Africa. You can keep the money, just let me do my work. This is my living. And so they say, no, so I just quit right. That's okay. Well, that's it for me. The same day the same day as the race day. I showed the track for the jockey who took over the rights for me that day. And my trainer book a ticket for me and I came to Miami. Wow, and immediately started to focus on training, I would assume. No, I went actually, I stayed in Miami for about 40 days, cleared ahead a little bit. And I want to do something that I have never done. I want to break yelling. So I search an Internet and I found stable in Ocala. Yeah. And once you work for him and then I met a friend that also knew him and recommend me to him. So I went to work for him and hold meeting successfully. We did very well there. And then I went to ansley oaks farm to just write some horses for them. They were shorter rider. I was waiting for my papers get ready to go back to France, to train there. And this meaning time and slave didn't let me leave. They just say, okay, it actually work out like a glove because it was kind of a little bit of a mess in the barn there and there was no nothing to follow. It was a mess. Everybody do whatever they want. So I put things in place. They give them the opportunity and I manage it to put discipline into the things and constantly job working on it. And I think workout for both of us. Everything happens for a reason and nobody knows that more than my special guest, Raphael here on trainer talk presented by phasic dipton. Gonna get to a short break, stay with us when I come back. We'll talk more about that segue into training. What he's learned and how he's gotten off to such a fast start. That's next. This is trainer talk, presented by facing tipton on the horse racing radio network..

"Right, day three more stakes to look at. Let's go to race 8 on the Saturday card at Tampa Bay downs. It's the $150,000 suncoast for the three year old Phillies going a mile in 40 yards. We've got a field of 8 and perhaps the shortest price of any of the stakes we're going to look at in number two nest. Yeah, I think Todd pletcher places his horses, spots them better than any trainer. And I think he's found a terrific spot here. This is not a particularly strong field, or maybe what I mean to say is it's not a field that has accomplished a great deal, maybe some of these horses will going forward. I'm interested in Christophe Clement's long shot peaceful surprise. I thought the debut at Tampa was really strong at about three to one, beat 7 rivals, and now we get a second career effort, $300,000 daughter of bladder, maybe don't know yet, but certainly a possibility. We also don't really know about a little love and luck because the horses run 5 times and only one of them has been on dirt. This is a dirt race. The one dirt effort wasn't terrific. I thought last time out on turf and a stakes race ran very well, and if this was on turf, that would be a horrified seriously consider. But this is a dirt route and I believe in Todd pletcher and I read Ortiz and Mike ripoli and that looks the best, the daughter of nest. Okay, so I picked number two nest on top as well. It's just hard to get past the fact that she's already a graded stakes winner and she's going for a barn that's really just firing on great guns, not only having a great Gulf Stream meet, but the few runners that he sent to Tampa Bay downs have been phenomenal. 12 starts 5 win 6 second place finishes, and a third, so no out of the money appearances, nest getting irad Ortiz aboard once again. I think that she's speedy enough that she's not going to be far off the pace. May even find herself in front in a race where there's not a whole lot of other speed and if they let her get out in front, I think it's just all over. She's three to 5 on the morning line looks like more about two to 5 to meet. I'm not going to try to beat her. I think nest is the way to go as well in the sun coast race aid at Tampa. The big race tomorrow at Tampa Bay downs is race number ten. It's a points qualifier on the road to The Kentucky Derby with ten points going to the winner. The quarter $1 million Sam F Davis stakes grade three event for the three year olds going a mile and a 16th and Dave, we've got a full field of 12. Yeah, you know, the more I think about this Tampa Bay card, the more I like that pick 6 because I think that first race the 6th is wide open, maybe you get a price, then nest, I think might be close to a single and this race, I'm gonna use a few of them, but I think classic caused way has a very big chance of winning this race. And if you give me three to one the morning line I'm thrilled, I don't think you're going to get that classic causeway has been the favorite and back to back races hasn't won either of them. Those are grade one and grade two races want it keen on one at Churchill and last time out ran against two of the better Derby contenders right now, smile happy was the winner white a barrio was third classic caused away finished between the two of them and I think classic causeway fits really, really nicely here. I'm a little bit interested in make it big for safi Joseph, who, of course, won the holy bull with white of barrio last week. I don't know what to make of this source. The first two ran against Florida state breds and looked really, really good and last time went to Remington park and looked good and I don't know how good that race was, but you can not knock a horse that's three for three and has been impressive in each of them. And if we're going to get a little bit salty and look for a price on the far outside hidden mischief for Jonathan Thomas, has a little bit of intrigue. I thought was good as a maiden beat a field of 9 others at aqueduct in a race that was taken off the turf and then came back at 6 to 5 and finished a solid second good figs in both of them that second race was at Gulfstream in January. But I like classic causeway the best. All right, I can't fault you there. I think there are 5 or 6 in this field of 12 that have legitimate chances of winning. So although I think classic causeway is one of them, the fact that he may be the favorite. I'm not going to put him on top. I thought Shep stational is all right, make it big, all right, strike hard ran pretty well last time out behind simplification. Little Vic at a big price if he draws in, I think, actually has a chance in this race. I'm going to put number 9 howling time on top. He was two to one against classic causeway in the Kentucky jockey club last time out, the same race that classic causeway was 7 to 5, not a gigantic difference in the odds and those two. They were both, I think bet below was smile happy. And howling time in my mind was not ridden correctly that day. He had shown mid pack stalking, closing tactics, the first two starts of his career and done very well with him. And for some reason was sent to the lead last time out in the Kentucky jockey club, I think that's not going to happen. I think he's better with a target. I'm going to throw that race out. He's working very fast for Dale Romans since that race. If you draw a line through that race, his effort in the street sense would certainly make him one of the ones to beat and he's going to be a better price. He's 5 to one on the morning line..

"But I think he's kind of going his best right now. He's four of his less really 6 of his last 7. Other than the Phoenix, he's been awesome and the Phoenix got beat by special reserve and low ha west, and he was only being two legs. But for him, obviously the distance is the question, right? Being that I have a pedigree expert. Wink wink, not not. Blame could go a mile in a quarter, right? So that means much okay. For this pedigree handicap, it's easy. That's all you gotta do is see what their mom and dad did and then just say that if they're gonna do it and they're gonna. But yeah, fun race, though, the 5th season is very much looking forward to that. Here at Tampa Bay downs, we have three stakes races on Saturday's card and I want to in particular talk about the ones with potential Derby and oaks ramifications. The apasco stakes for the boys and the gasparilla for the girls. I don't try to pick favorites in racism. I'm going to call it, but I am really pumped for the gasp. The Philly race. Oh man. Why don't we start with that? It's the 6th race. They're actually early. The Pasco is the 5th and the gas barilla is the 6. Outfoxed shows up here who's right at Saratoga debuted. Didn't do a whole lot of running, went down to Gulfstream because she's a Florida Brad, and that obviously is part of this equation. Dominated in the Florida sire stakes 7 furlongs dominated even more well not actually actually less because instead of winning by 13 one by 9 and a 9 and a quarter. But it was for 400,000 to go into mile 16. So cuts back here and is going up against pretty good field. So I'm really jazzed about this race because Fox certainly connection wise Bill Mott and L and J and Sammy camacho getting on board Edgar zaya is not coming up to ride. Which I don't know if that's like I feel like that's not like a thing to read much into because it's not a graded stakes race. It is worth more if you're Florida bread in these races. So that's where that's where part of the reason I brought that up. But strategic bird who's on the outside is also Florida Brad and is extremely good. I was really impressed with her when in the sandpiper stakes. Now, the reason I say that is, you know, she free wheeled in her debut when at Gulfstream against state Brad's very easily. But she got pushed and hooked last time by divine charger, who's also in this race and to find charger took a big step forward in the sandpiper. And strategic bird like I mean, like I said, she got looked right in the eye and kicked back very game. It was only her second tour start it would start 5 for divine charger. And you know, this race, there is a lot of that horses with kind of the one good maiden race, pletcher sends and got us a fire who was a maiden winner up at the Saratoga. They tried the Pocahontas ran third and behind hidden connection when hid connection romp that day and then came back and the tempted and didn't do a whole lot of running. The other interesting thing is, you know, a lot of these newly turned three year olds getting Lasix for the first time. I think there's 5 horses of the 8 that are getting Lasix for the first time in the gasparilla. Strategic bird being one of them out Fox being one of them. So, you know, take that for what you would like. My dad used to live by first time Lasix. I used to have to go through in the program and circle all the one else because he used to love that angle. And you know, I mean, I don't know, I don't know that it's like a move forward thing for horses that are already running good. But we'll see. But yeah, fun race. And even a local horse platinum Jim, who was a maiden special winner here at Tampa, back in December 4th, was really eye catching that they came right back in one against optional 75, Maria Bauer sock the trainer is having an extremely good start to the meat and a problem Ralph, the jockey has been insanely hot. He's had 5 winners each of the last two Saturdays, which is nuts. But I just thought it really, really fun addition to this race. I'm excited about the gasparella now. The boys race, the Pasco, which obviously starts the road to the Tampa Bay Derby. Is a smaller field 7 and catan was the winner of the local I don't want to say prep for this race, but the first race in the series, the inaugural. And one pretty easily just kind of stock the leaders pounce on them and it's two actually really good efforts in a row, finished behind octane and those Florida sire stakes for the boys in the last couple starts before that. But other than getting beat by octane is a nice two for two and the runner up in the inaugural did come back to win. The fourth place finisher for that from the inaugural is in this race. But we got some new shooters as far as from out of town. One of those is cyber Viking chantel Sutherland coming up to ride for trainer Jorge Delgado. Three for four this horse is and they've taken their time. I mean, debut for maiden 12 5, one, they jumped all the way up to optional 35 second and then one that same condition last time. Now, the distance I get, I don't want to say the question because they won going this distance last time. And so I don't think it's a question at this point. The 7 furlongs is still it's kind of an interesting little.

"Bobby Newman and James Scully on the Thursday edition of the briss net dot com call in show first Thursday since the Thanksgiving holiday and before we went to break James, I asked you what I think is a difficult question. And I don't want to put you too much on the spot, but it seems to me with the purses growing exponentially almost everywhere. Whether it be places like Churchill downs at Oakland park, the purses are massive at aqueduct during the wintertime. They're decent at Gulfstream, they're decent at fairgrounds. Tampa Bay downs is kind of lagging behind. And they have great weather. Arguably the best weather in the country that time of year certainly right there with Gulfstream park. They've got dirt racing. They've got turf racing. They've got phenomenal weather all winter. Their purses for a lack of a better term stink compared to everybody else's. And I'm wondering if they're far enough their purses are falling far enough behind some of their competition, especially considering Oak Lawn park is starting 6 weeks early and is really not that far away. If this is when the quality drops off a bit, the other choices are looking rosier in rosier with the bigger purses. Well, you might disagree with my take on this, Bobby, you know, you know, a lot about the South Florida racing. But my thought is, this is a phenomenon that they've always had. I understand what you're saying about the person's continue to rise, but I think there's been a there was like an influx of like casino money and other big purse money and years in the last decade. And one thing I'll say about Tampa Bay downs. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I think when super saver came along and won the Tampa Bay Derby in 2010, did that track really? It's reputation like sort of began to change a little bit. Because I thought I always thought it had like a little bit of a reputation of being like a cheaper track and I've always been like there's a lot of like mid Atlantic courses Midwest horses that are gonna win are there. And one of the peels that the track though does have to horsemen that might be a base hit Gulf Stream or a different training facilities like put your Chad Brown Kristoff come on is that they run all these turf races and dirt races at two different two distances. And sometimes they can just get their horses a race there and they don't mind shipping them in and running them in like a two turn made on the turf or on the dirt. Especially on their big stakes days, do you think I'm off course there? No, I think everything you've said makes a lot of sense. And I agree that super saver kind of helped them turn the corner as far as public perception. But what I'm talking about and I still think they're going to get good horses for those days for the Tampa Bay down for the Tampa Bay Derby for the Sam F Davis and for all the supporting stakes that they have on those days, there's usually several it's a multi stake day, both of those big cards. And I think the pleasures and the browns and whoever else and the mots are still going to support them and Mark Cassie, like they always do. It may not always be with the number one horse in their barn at that specific distance or age range, but I think they're going to send good ones. What I'm talking about is more on a daily overnight level. We've seen a lot of it through the last several years. It's not uncommon to see Chad Brown running maidens on the turf at Tampa Bay downs. Christoph Clement running maidens on the turf at Tampa Bay downs. Todd pletcher, Bill Mott running horses at Tampa Bay downs. Jonathan Thomas does it a lot. Guys that are more associated maybe with South Florida than they are at Tampa. And my question is whether somewhere along the line, not every owner is somebody that doesn't care about money. And that's the dumbest thing that's ever come out of my mouth, but I said it and it is what it is. The difference between let's just say it this way. The difference between running for a $27,000 purse there and a $97,000 per somewhere else is a pretty big difference. You know, it's not like, well, you know, in the end, if we win, and we get this, it's probably only costing us three or 4000. No. I mean, this is two, three, sometimes four times the money depending on where you're willing to travel. Gulfstream part doesn't have the monstrous purses that Oak Lawn and aqueduct will in the winter time. But still, there's significantly more fair grounds is not that far away. And if they have decent weather, they have turf racing there too, and their purses are basically twice what they are at Tampa Bay downs. I'm just wondering if the big names and the big barns send their quote unquote good horses there for these non steak races as much as they used to. Yeah, that's a fair point. And like I said, I saw where. Turfway park, at least they put out a press release for the holiday meat, which is like 18 or days or something, it runs to December 31st. But they're made special weight races, Bobby, are worth 62,000. And they're allowances range from 63 to 68. So, you know, their purses are up. They didn't need to be running $62,000 allowances there. And I'll give you an example. We had, I'm part of a partnership, and we had a horse claimed for $20,000 at Churchill. He won. And it was like, that race had like a 50 $5000 purse. I mean, it was ridiculous. How big the person was and it's, you know, we're happy for it. Glad for it. But you're right. I mean, you would think Tampa Bay. I mean, their purses are just not going up at all year to year. And I think there was like a rob renaissance there where like a few years ago, there were some barns that were sending like divisions there and you know to give it a go for the winner and it seemed like it's just interesting that they haven't been able to race their purses. I don't know why that is. And this is the first time that I've actually seen in print people coming out and really mentioning it. Mike Stidham, most nobly said that he can't afford to run at Tampa Bay downs with the purse is the way they are there compared to everyone else. And it's not that he would necessarily base a Tampa Bay downs. He just he's just saying it makes no financial sense for him to do it just to get a little bit nicer weather. Yeah, Ian Wilkes. He's a guy that's had horses there. And yeah, that's amazing. You know, you look at both those guys, those guys have had horses that ran in the Derby that were stable on a Tampa Bay downs, like over the winter. And we're like contenders. Ian Wilkes had mccracken and Stidham had win, win, win. Is that right? So yeah, it's like, yeah, you're right. If those guys bail out on them, it's going to be more like just they're going to be having to try to reach out and get Barnes from my cheaper and cheaper.

"It's like sunny and mid 60s. Little tiny chill in the air as we get set for opening day here at Tampa Bay downs. We will talk opening day at Tampa Bay downs, I'm obviously recording this the night before, so I got a nice not in my stomach going. But we'll talk about the at Tampa card with ren carruthers, who's our analyst at Tampa Bay downs, obviously does selections on the website, along with Luis Acacia who does selections as well as Spanish speaking analysts and looking forward to getting the 92 day meet up and running. So long one, we start three days a week for this first few weeks and then after Christmas. Sundays come into the mix, so we'll be four days a week racing Wednesday Friday, Saturday Sunday 1240 first post, believe is the it says 1243 in the program, but I feel like it's 1240 and then three actual minutes. But I know that our general manager is very active in post times and, you know, avoiding the other folks. This week is actually kind of interesting because there's no, there's no Gulf Stream this week, right? They start the championship meet next week. And I know Churchill does run on Wednesday. I know Charles town runs later in the day, delta's later in the day, Angela's later in the day. Finger lakes runs in the morning. But no, no Gulf Stream. Oh, we do got parks, though. Definitely still got parks. And turf Paradise is underway. I don't know, I have not been paying attention. I don't know when turf Paradise started. I feel like they started not that long ago, right? Anybody been watching some turf Paradise? But we will spend more time talking about the weekend coming up on tomorrow's show. It'll just be me because it's a Thanksgiving addition, didn't want to make the boys have to come jury on because we're not doing a Friday show because there's obviously the holiday. Old chase gets a holiday once in a while. And so I will just do a little preview of some of the weekend racing action that's coming up between delmar and aqueduct and Churchill and us kicking off a Tampa. I feel like it's a pretty good weekend of a stuff coming up, even with no Gulf Stream. It's funny because during the I realized that I hadn't been a part of Saturday racing in a while other than Monmouth park, most of my tracks that I work at are kind of weekday tracks and so but it's funny, I'll go to emerald like when I'm back home and you'll sit in the OTP and watch the Saturday races and you know it might be a big day at or even Belmont still late fall, but you know, Gulfstream is kind of this just omnipresent thing on these weekend days, and obviously a lot of people play the track there. So it's kind of funny to not have them this weekend. Obviously years past we've had Gulfstream park west, Calder for October and November, but with the new all weather course, things pretty much year round at Gulfstream with the exception of this one week. I remembered, when I was down at GPW, they kind of used this time to repaint the grandstand and obviously let the turf course kind of get back to its best. I'm curious how the turf course at Gulfstream will I don't want to say behave, but we'll just hold up. You know, they kind of alternate normally with that inner and outer. And now with the all weather, I'm sure some of the races will go to that. I like the all weather. I'm not, I'm not afraid of it. I don't dislike it. I've noticed on optics. A lot of those races seem to run kind of true to how the pace projector and the plot thinks they're going to. And so, you know, I know the knock on the synthetics, at least from a lot of horse players when they kind of became popular. I think was that they felt unpredictable. And I think of those early delmar days with horses looping up 8 9 wide and keenly was kind of like that as well. I mean, it's certainly a different course, right? It is different. There is nothing about the all weather to me that reminds me of dirt from just a pure race shape and you know, that kind of thing. And even handicapping, right? Even though like biases do happen on the all weather, so I guess that's similar to dirt racing sometimes. There's times in the all weather. It's very good to be forward with the place. You know, various tracks. But I think that it's just different enough from dirt racing and turf racing for that matter. That a lot of horse players get turned off to it. But I've never been one for that. I always felt like you know, maybe it's because I don't have a great handle on any of the three surfaces as a horse player handicapper, but I don't know. It never scared me away. So obviously, I'm curious to see how much they use it during the, you know, the championship portion of that meat, obviously, a lot of eyeballs on those races as they, as they get down to the the finish line here should mention as well, of course that opening day at the fairgrounds is coming up on Thanksgiving. We'll probably talk a little bit about that. I remember there was there was all this talk about the jazz fest, and that was supposed to be like a different part of the because I think they were going to.

"New apartment. My new podcast desk, my new podcast lamp, my new podcast chair, which is pretty comfy, by the way. I think the most comfortable podcast chair I've had. The one at my place near Seattle is the worst. It's so uncomfortable. My one in Oregon is tied for the worst. It's very uncomfortable as well. It's like an old wooden chair. But now I got a nice padded comfy good office chair and happy to be down here. Got all moved in on Tuesday. And you know, I'm a third floor person. So all my I got to furnish apartment, which is awesome. Just coming in and having all the furniture, they set up all like, you know, they have all your towels and soaps and everything. It's almost like checking into a hotel. It's just you're going to live there for a long time. So I just had to haul all my clothes and stuff up in doing laundry all day and kind of getting it to feel like a home, which it's going to be for the next 6 months. So really happy to be settled in here. It's like 73° and perfect outside. I'm I walked out of the grocery store and I was like, God, it's so nice here. This is unbelievable. So I promise that I will get used to that. I will stop mentioning how beautiful it is and how great the weather is and we will just move on with the normal podcast. But let me live in enjoyment here for a little bit of the newness of all this, but yeah, happy to be with you guys. Went out to Tampa Bay downs and visited with Margot, my boss, and talked to some folks out there as we get ready for opening day, which is a week from today. We open up the Wednesday before, Thanksgiving. I hope you guys will join us. For racing at Tampa Bay downs, this winter, I think first entries are Saturday. So looking forward to that, but I went up to the booth and kind of spent a little time up there. I didn't really get anything set up or anything. Just kind of wanted to go and be in the space, keep working on getting comfortable in there. I know that sounds weird, but I always like to I go to work usually an hour or two earlier than I need to just so I have some time up in the space to get comfortable. So I kind of try to make that a practice before the season as well. Just getting used to being in there and getting used to the sight lines. It's a low booth. I want to say it's even lower than grant's pass, which isn't that high, but it's tricky, so. But I'll get used to it and it'll be good. So we'll certainly talk some Tampa on next week's shows. I want to try to get a Tampa centric guest for Wednesday's show for sure. With the holiday, we will have a show for Thanksgiving. It'll probably be a weekend preview show of just me. For next Thursday, then we'll be off that Friday. I schedule snafu this week. For some reason I had it as though this was the holiday week. So we will do a show of just me tomorrow. I did put out a note to James and Scott to do a jury for Friday. So we'll do that along with the weekend preview. Probably a little bit of weekend previewing tomorrow as well. I like kind of like having an extra, you know, we often do the interview format for Thursday for a horse player. Thursday and obviously, with the inside the pylons interview yesterday, we kind of did that to the extreme with the 90 minute interview. Got a lot of good feedback on that. I appreciate everybody who listened. As expected the download numbers were very big. Yeah, blew away all of our breeders cup downloads and all that kind of stuff. So thank you everybody for tuning in for that. And I excited today, welcome to our guest Sabrina Moore is going to join us from greenmount farm in Maryland, Sabrina, one of the breeders of Nick's go. The breeders cup classic winner, they're a small Maryland operation, and I will talk to her about her family's farm about breeding horses about breeding the breeders cup classic winner and mile winner. You won the mile dirt mile last year. So we'll talk about all of that more. I think Sabrina is 32. So I mean, she's been doing 30 to 30 as well. So should not 32, but you know, young. And so obviously having this kind of success, you know, does it mean a lot? I mean, certainly, it means a lot for a breeder to win a breeders cup classic, but does it change their business? Is it, you know, I feel like if a trainer, I feel like if a trainer wins The Kentucky Derby if they're a small barn, it has to change their profile, right? We've talked to a lot of trainers. But I don't know if that's the case with breeders particularly with breeders who are focused on having some brood mayors, breeding them to studs and selling them. And so we'll talk with Sabrina about all of that and more coming up here. In just a couple of minutes, so looking forward to that. A couple of news items out there in the world of racing. It was announced Jack Christopher to resume training in the early 2022 after he had a screw inserted in his left shin by a doctor Larry bramlage, Chad Brown. The trainer, of course, looking to have that horse back and ready for possibly the Triple Crown trail. You know, we're obviously a show sponsored by to inspire, so The Kentucky Derby is a big part of our our content plan. And some of that is just because The Kentucky Derby is a part of everybody's content plan. And it's our big event. But it seems one of the items that gets talked about a lot on that trail is you kind of just can't have much go wrong, right? Along the way. Injuries or missing time. Now Medina Spirit did miss some time, right? Wasn't he out for just a smidge of time? But it seems like the prevailing thought is you kind of have to have everything go smoothly. So I mean, does that mean Jack Christopher can't contend or win The Kentucky Derby? Well, some people will claim that. Also, domestic spending, they said he was pulled out. They said he's going to be out for three months with a suspensory ligament injury. The Chad Brown barn a couple of setbacks there was announced that rock your world was retired. Of course, the Santa Anita Derby winner, much much hyped in The Kentucky Derby had the bad start, never really got going again and then didn't do much after that. Said he's going to stand for $10,000 in yeah, he of course, since that, you know, he was perfect three for three to start, and he was good on the grass. They ran The Kentucky Derby. He ran very poorly. They ran the Belmont, didn't do.

"Pull than one later in the game. I guess a shot of 11 01 right after that. What you like about the way you has responded or guess? What was the mood there? You know, I think for us way had to fight off a couple penalties in the second period. And that got us out of our rhythm a little bit, But you know, like you said, they're obviously going to make a push when you when you get up by three. I just have to make sure that you try toe. Keep playing the same game. You don't want to sit back on leads. And I'd like to have that second goal back that that they scored on DH help Pazzi out there a little bit, but I thought after that, you know the guys. We banded together. We started making more plays, putting pucks in and having him in and we did a great job, Teo, Lock it down. Well, I think he's exactly rights. And that was Kevin Shattenkirk, along with Andre Palat. Greg Lindley with you springing Kaylie Chelios. Check out Papa John's Papa tracked a contract Your order in real time from the moment you place order online. We're on the up to the moment it arrives on fresh at your door. Better deliver tracking now available Papa John's pizza. Kaylee outside of the second period, where they took a bunch of penalties. Five to be exact and gave Dallas some momentum. I thought the Lightning really did what they wanted to do in the 1st and 3rd period's They really did. I think Dallas showed a little bit of push back in the second after they scored their goal, and then they came on desperate for a goal, obviously, in the third period when they're trailing, but you're right. I think the Lightning did a great job. I thought they finished really well and more importantly, they started really well. So they weren't chasing the game. And I know John Cooper talked this morning about What happens when you chase the game and you don't score first, you end up kind of having to get out of your system or your structure a little bit because you're forcing plays and they didn't have to do that. Instead, it was Dallas who took Cem Of some bad penalties early on that cost them and and then the Lightning just kind of did what they've been doing and played a pretty strong defensive game. Through the rest of the third period. They got their looks, but Basil a city was there to make the big saves. Yeah, He was great in closing. What do you expect for Game three? In terms of lineup? I've gotta think John Cooper probably stays with the same 12 and six outside of any news on Steven Stamkos. Yeah, It's tough to break that up once they have success like they have tonight, and I thought it worked really well, they've got some fresh legs in there. Um, I thought Yon Rudo was great card over. Hey, Gyu is really good when he was in his well. I think that he keeps the lineup the same. It's going to be a huge game. Obviously the third one and I think the lightning feel pretty good. This was a great start for them, and I think it gave them a lot of confidence moving forward. They got a few Pask Udo been here and I feel pretty good looking at the lightning moving forward. I think they're going to think they're goingto have another strong game. And with Steven Stamkos in the lineup, it can only get better for them. So that would be a nice possibility for them if they go 12 and six You know, give Stamkos some opportunity to get some minutes in and if they want to use him is that That 12 forward, but also if he has to be in a more limited role, then you give the point coach our of line some extra minutes instead and try to use Stamkos on the power play wherever he could be a value. Good point. Kayleigh will do it again for Game three. Thank you. Thanks, Greg. All right. That is gaily Chelios. We always appreciate her. And her analysis coming up next after news radio or on his radio to be flayed and letting powerfully we're going the last call myself along with Dave and her Chuck. Make sure you stay tuned for that.

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. Was it hard not to look around and just take in the atmosphere and instead focus on what you were doing. How hard list to do? Yeah well I come from Venezuela complete different compare here and then you really have to focus at work workout every day so you can get your business and you know doing your job and you know made me thanks you know and then try to cloud what every day. How hard was it making the adjustment from Venezuela coming here as a young man not sure of the language and not knowing what's at your prospects would be? What was that adjustment like well? There's a big chance you know especially with the with the language that you have to really talk to do every body and understand what they wanna tell you frighteners on there. When I was in Minnesota last dot doing English class and private I went to high school and in a private school so when I came back here I can't hear one time? Nineteen Ninety six. So I didn't really good because language I think more mar and then went back to Venezuela so I wanNA come back yet again and and do the same. That's what I do. Day lift classes private and Eleven when again by Two Thousand and three door. Hi You I was big little be I understand a little bit and then I got it your breakfast every day. You're talking every day so make as you Jackie Daniels. Centeno joins us here on the gate. It's been a year or so now. I belief since your partner Ashley George passed away from cystic fibrosis. What was it like losing her? And what's alive. You know US work together for the book thing and we went to a lot of work on every time Fago. What's getting worse and especially my daughter Yachtsman but I'm blessed my daughter's so throng which Banja La doing amazing and Making it every day you gotta be strong for my daughter and then their best for her. Now I believe when you have cystic fibrosis yes you have it almost your entire life so you must have known when you met her that she had this condition. Is that right. Yeah Yeah Yeah keep telling me from the beginning to doing doing okay. But in the meantime wanting her lungs would getting worse and worse than that was boring. They're are there only chantey how they would've transplant. And the medical cameras are not that both longtime plans doing quake and one day. Keep them back home for Halloween. And she that stroke and she was to call my mom to wake like Lamb and never for memory to talk in everything but no memory and keep going. I asked me and see what's in the two years and and doctors say to her body was rejecting everything again and then get get Her body stop working. Did you say she was in a hospital for two years. was that kind of in and out or was she in a hospital all the time time for two years to two years. Happy because you know she can be herself grandma what they get her. I was flying back and forth some time with me to see her but kick No recognize anybody know memories your longtime memories. The more you so I went to Work Yom okay and too much medication So it was really good time for my daughter and either adopt nine so oh my goodness now. It's one thing to being a dad but it's another thing when those kids are both teenagers because says many of our listeners know teen is four letter word I know I have a teenager and yours are on the opposite end of the teenage spectrums. Just when when you finish the teenage thing it all starts over again. How have you been able to manage all of that and your job well? And that's another the team did it.

A ton of fun to work with the family in horse racing. And there's a ton of out there, but failed to hang out with one for a couple of weeks and put a little piece together pretty cool pretty cool story while speaking families in racing when I put up the picture of you in the background the first fan one of the first families of of Florida racing the millers and Penelope making the scene for APR. And of course, when I first came here. She was worried you were working here. Right six how long? How about that? Absolutely. And I and I can remember I remember meeting Penelope's dad, and you actually at at Belmont originally a long long time ago you were. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. Yeah. And Tampa Bay downs. You know, you know, it's a good racetrack when you can work here for almost seven years, and you still love it does really. I mean, I I'm back for only the second time this year, and it feels like coming home. I can't tell you. How much really love it here. Great pleasant is can be and the atmosphere. Tomorrow will really crackly they throng joint. No doubt. Absolutely. And they're doing an umbrella giveaway to saw that. I saw the umbrella. I haven't seen a yo. It's it's the it's the mother of all rela lending them out to friends in New York when it's snowing so I really need one. I'm going to have to I'm gonna have to spend for it. All right, there you go. Saratoga reference spending a love it the always great to see Penelope and the APR team. And I'm sure you'll be spewing out photos and all the all the nice materials. I'll absolutely I'm uploading photo of mouth, the mascot here. The bachelor horse as we speak love it. I love it. Outstanding. Well, always great to see Penelope, Andrew, let's get to some thoughts about this card, and you know, really the highlight of the season Tampa. And it's been it's been a good season. We end up as always with some of the horses that made their way from the Pasco and the Sam Davis and now here, and then you get the invaders, and it's the it's the typical mix and match group that has come together the last several years for Tampa Bay Derbys. And that's what's so cool about Santa is you have so many top Barnes just in south Florida who ship up some really nice horses year after year four are big races. And just for a big race as I was commenting panel. Before hopped on with you. I said that's the main races tomorrow blow my mind, I may just will read horses showing up and I'm looking forward to the entire car. People should be excited as I am for the the all stakes pick five the all stakes pick for tomorrow. Having said that the first half of the card is pretty darn solid as well. Well, and it's funny because both here and turf way, the slates are very similar with you know, big multi stake race cards, and and then filled out with with maiden specials. Most of the rest of the turf way is maiden special action as well and makes for really a start to finish it really compelling cards as opposed to you know, starting out with the sixty two five and so forth. In fact, the derby itself, let's start there. And we'll work our way backward and hit some highlights have your impressions of how this unfolds. Yeah. It should be a pretty tremendous race tomorrow. You don't have you know, you kind of hope you have a handful of horses. We hope every year they kind of take the progression. Whether it be Pasco same f Davis into the lamb home south Tampa Bay derby this year, really have the the two horses. The winner of the Pasco win win win who I think will be the favourite tomorrow in the lamb home, south him bay derby. And then you have well-defined..

"With Steve on sues. We're back at the raciest about twenty two top of the hours eve Askin swings in from the blood horse after a exciting fountain a youth and the the aftermath of the fountain the pretty much. I think sending the top finishers hurtling toward the Florida derby. And then of course, this Saturday's action lots to talk about and Steve asking good morning. Good morning. Steve. I don't know if you're at hurtling, but maybe slightly moving forward would be more appropriate. In fits and starts. Maybe there you go. I haven't seen hurtling this here. Well, I I'm going to ask you a question as I look out here at lovely Tampa Bay downs. And they're out mowing the the turf course, if you did you ever get here over the years. I never have. I've never been a Tampa and move into Oakland. Is there still would like to go to Tampa looks like a funday of racing? Yeah. Definitely you should we can we can we crowbar you out of out of Hamilton square. And it's pretty tough. Pretty big Khobar. It needs to needs a big crowbar and money. All right. Well, we know what? All right. So we've we know what will grow out. Well, there's still time the bucket list. The the bucket list visits you can still still time to get you to Oakland and the Tampa Bay. Well, I'm here. I'm here in your stead. I'm I. Oakland. I actually had hotel reservations and credentials. And plane ticket? I had my plane ticket glow. That's right at my head by. Already booked and everything set. To go down and cover than Yata versus Rachel hanged in wins in yada stayed home. I stayed home. Neater either of you. Neither of you could cross the Rockies. All right that. Well, let's all right. We're there's still. Of course, the Rockies to get a quote. That's true. I smoke mountains. That's right. That's right. The the cheat is the wet sheet amounts. Well, see it for for our purposes. Let's let's talk Florida will start at Gulfstream last week and your impressions coming out of that found youth. Well, it was you know, it was somewhat classy race, you know, whenever voices come from off the pace. It makes the race. Look more like a legitimate there be prep as opposed to you know, a promises fulfilled like last year. You know, once that ranch was run you say, well, I mean, that's it. I mean, it's no it's no longer, derby prep. So at least, you know, with the short stretch, go stream park, you know, you just didn't know didn't know what to expect expect X. With we hitting scroll. We didn't know what to expect from him. So. My only reservation with the race. Is that it was an absolute perfect setup. For for the winter. Now, I always liked this last year before the Breeders Cup. I wrote a column saying is the Kentucky Derby winner in the Breeders Cup juvenile and I ranked all the horses in the Breeders Cup Cuban as to who. I think the WAC's and that coat of on ranked number one the game winner number two, you know, certain horses that look big going into the race had very far down like complexity Knicks go, but those who might too big WAC's in that race. And then of course, you you know, we threw in a dud in the moot. Macho man, but absolutely love this last work before the founder of us so expecting much improved performance, and you know, show was going to get this horse ready for the race. But the only thing is is just don't know what to what to make of it. You know? Speed figures were we're so so Bris net numbers they actually defect you had late closing in the race too late closing the late paste figures on Britain. We're very slow. So he was an absolute perfect set up with the pace meltdown. So what we got race? I really don't know they came home and twenty six two and seven and it was code of on who ran seven..

"They're going to try current. He's only had the one race on the dirt. It was dull and the Kentucky jockey club. But he's a good horse. Tacitus? What did we get? From this one. You know, there's probably is short a breeding any hoarseness three year old crop tap it on the close hatches monthly this one a long lay-off. If you go back and look at the work, again, XP TV's happiness was working and company some with hidden scrolls. He got embarrassed by hidden go I thought and their most recent matchup between the two of them, but hidden school came back. And I thought, you know, validating himself a really fast and talented ores in that race, you know in the fountain of youth. Lastly tree maker comes in from Florida. That'll be an interesting are in from care gums via Florida for Marquette and the horse who ran behind the dream maker in that fairgrounds race by mouth that feet eight length his name is courtyard. He came back in one or allow race on Saturday for time Amos fairground. So your dream maker steps back up into the stakes rank off what looks to be a pretty good effort. Eighty flatter is a talented horse for the Tampa Bay derby. But you know, the favourite for the queen's plate and this is the first time back for eighties flatter. So I think this was probably be better. Next time. And remember the queen's plate is June twenty eight the goal for this horse a million dollar race is until June twenty eight I can't imagine eighty flatter is gonna be after he's not down to be awesome. He's not running. He's he's not gonna run. Okay. He's out. Okay. I was looking at the Tampa Bay downs probables off a press release that they had so and eighty flatter. I think I if he's healthy would be a really interesting that Ceylan by fire platter? Flutters really well, and that main track your team, and I'd love to see that horse geared up chemo and come here in a couple of weeks. Yeah. The the there were a couple of late movements. You mentioned current an addition poor Duarte for richly to lead the right path Romans with admire Victor Barboza shipped with Zenden a now instead and and also kassy's running Sir Winston, so they're speeding. Those endings got more speed than you know, Nick, go leaving doesn't necessarily change the pace scenario done there. This'll be an interesting race. Thank you know, based on where horses draw how it shakes pace wise. I don't think that there's like a talent gap between horse one two three four. I think this race is going to be very situational. So I think you wanna see how it's going to shake out who might trip and then like we saw last week in the fountain of youth. It'll be set your fair online. It'd be priced dependent. I mean, if you win win win, but given trying to turns, you know, stepping up in class, you know, what price. Do you think is the right price on him? You know, because I think I think he's going to get hammered. You know, I think he's gonna get really hard in here. You have to decide what your stomach will take. Well. And from every indication he's win-win wins been working like a like, a Crazy Horse that the, and that's not necessarily, you know, Trump bed is vote either to the right work. Just like we have last week. What happens when he turns on the backstretch with?.

I don't know if I'm ready to this. Quarter. Oh, you've been listening that long. Up and ready to go rocket, Houston, Texas is all right. Isn't that? Isn't that a great outlook to have on life? We all can look through Romero Mirages is for like a day a month. This world will be such a better place. I agree with you. I saw the tweet, and it's a to have that type of attitude. I I will say the line where he says he says, yeah, I'm ready to get back in the saddle. But the first week I was in conscious. That was really kind of explained it. But I'm just glad that better. And I know a lot of people and social media the behind him. He he's got that great outlook on life and at eighteen to be kind of wise beyond his years. It's really cool to here. Yeah. He's a lot like cousin. Reggie even. And I remember the first time I met Rajiv was was at Tampa Bay downs on Tampa Bay derby day and Rajiv was sitting outside and and we were talking in. He said, you know, biggest goal in life was to win the Red Stripe derby. That's that's the raise in Jamaica. And. I said I've actually been became on his park, and he didn't believe me at first. But I describe it well enough that you knew I had been there. And and then later on you know, I was lucky enough to be there when he won the would wicked strong, and I got to him after the raise in it said this a little bit better than the red stricter. He's awful lot more money. But they've never they've never lost that they they are just still the same way. They've always been Marashi family. It's really cool. I mean, it's unbelievably cool. And black of those stories. There's so many great stories at the race track in so many great people. And that's where sport is headed. And sometimes we we have our our setbacks, but you get back up you settled up and you put press on. And I think that's a a good attitude for him to have a lot of people in she'd have really whether it be attracting outsor- trainer jockey, whoever. Yeah. You gotta be able to land on your feet, right? I mean because this sport will knock you down a lot of times. But you gotta be able to get up and dust yourself off and go right back at it. So exactly no, no question about it. Nice nice Saturday car down at Sam Houston this evening. Gyms orbit and the two alpha to remember gyms over. I remember too though. How's the how's the gig down Sam Houston? Yeah. It's been it's been it's been quite the experience, you know, for me been kind of a whirlwind trip to the last five years to be in this spot to be at a HR P and it's our twenty fifth anniversary season. And it's been a real nice experience. And everyone's just so nice, Houston, Texas and around the track and we've had a lot of good rates in days. And we had a lot of luck as far as getting our turf rates in that walk ended last night 'cause we did get some weather in the area. So we were off the grass, but we're back on as of now it's a little monkey this morning, but we've got nine races tonight's card every you have a couple of stakes races.

"Derby on radio is with us right here on H R N as I was getting ready for the program. I got thinking about what was happening on the road to the Kentucky Derby this weekend. Of course. And you have one derby points race that's down at Tampa Bay downs. With the grade three Sam f Davis ten horses set to go five twenty five eastern as the post. That's a race that JT even though it has never produced a Kentucky Derby winner is a race. That is producing really nice horses. Yeah. You know, Tampa Bay downs, regardless of the fact that they're per structures rather minimal except it's top. Seems to come up with horses every year. I think weather is part of it. I think also it's it's a nice safe track. So trainers liked to go down there, and and get their horses, ready leg up, and and see what develops and one of these days a Sam f Davis horses going to win the derby. Yeah. You look at the quality of the runners that have have won the Sam Davis and not when the derby, but gone on to do good things later in their career McCracken who is our number one draft pick in our fantasy league that we get into every year. He won the race two years ago you had destined the year before that how about ocean night in two thousand fifteen he never went on to do much. I think that went to maybe it's us. Maybe were we're the Jing. We love the Sam Davis winter. We're going to draft them number one every year. I think ocean night was our topic to brethren won it in two thousand eleven yet rule in two thousand ten how general quarters in two thousand nine in any given Saturday two thousand seven. Bluegrass cat two thousand six how's that for a little trip down memory lane? Yeah. Well, that's that's cool. I mean, those sources are all Saulat runners, and and some of them have turned out to be excellent sires general quarters has signalman derby hopeful, he's very nice horse brethren become an excellent sire lot. Lot of winners from him. So yeah. Maybe more of a sires race than than Kentucky, Derby prep. We're going to hear from the trainer of the morning line favorite in this year. Sam f Davis that is Ben colebrook native of Kentucky hill, saddle Knicks. Go who won the great one breeders Futurity here at Keeneland last fall was runner up in the Breeders Cup juvenile. We're gonna get chance to catch up with him later in the first hour around eight thirty five eastern. So we'll talk about the big horse and how he's coming along as he gets set for his three year old debut later this afternoon. The other thing that struck me. I started looking at some of these prep.

"Eight weeks at the spa pontiff awful lot of possession. Mondays this year. Yeah. It's it's gonna be an extended. Meet nothing wrong with that. Great place to be looking forward to. Yeah. It's. So it'd be fun. It's gonna be good. And today's offered a brilliant. I know we had a lot of calls about it on the Colin show last night. And you know, some some fans happy some fans, aren't I if I'm what happy people and not especially if you work in the industry. I mean having that one dark day really is not even like having a dark day if you do handicap and stuff, right? So having the two dark days actually be able to take day off this year up at Saratoga. I'm looking forward to that should be should be fantastic common. Ten more days of fair out of the city in the hustle and bustle down. Yeah. Should prove to think the pros definitely outweigh the cons. All right. Down to old more Florida. We go and Tampa Bay downs. One of that bigger days of the year, it semi Davis day, there'd be points on the line. We'll get to that in our next segment. Got three stakes before that. Or you say is the grade three Tampa Bay mile sixteenth out of the shoot. For the older horses. Get a field of eight hit an interesting bunch to get a grade one winner and heart to heart. We have curb on who won the grey to roof on closing day at Saratoga last year old visit darrow's multiple grade. One winner inspector Linley defending champ. It's a field of eight, but it's some soft power in absolutely in probably none better than curb on. He's he's very talented. And he hasn't had the best of luck. All in all didn't get in the Breeders Cup. That was heartbreaking event. He's a good horse and Karen has loved him since day one. Broke his American maiden in the Bernard Baruch that's a good way to start. How to endure yourself to your trainer? When a grade two I. And he's a couple of rough trips and Joe Bravo knows them. Now Joe's going to ride them. And I think that's a very good sign, and I think him in inspector Linley are far and away the best to horses in this, right? No love for heart-to-heart. I think our heart is about as good as he can be. I mean, he he's he's done everything. They've asked him. But he just doesn't seem to have that that left. If he was minding be standing, it's someplace. Yeah. You kind of feel like maybe. Maybe it's time to send them home. I agree. I just I always worry about these old class speed horses that. You know? May maybe like Irish straight. Bricks chops on the front end. And he he went wide awhile last time and the money allowance race at over the course, and you know, like big on science Colonel. I just wonder if he has that one. You know, they say the price fighters have one good fighting this one more good one left than them. If he does and he gets in front of these horses. Eat might forget to stop and some of them don't wanna pass curb on not one of them curb on certainly looks like his biggest threat, but I think. I you gotta give heart to heart along tomorrow. Making my top pick. See if the old boy has one more in over curb on from me. And was there always gotta get out on mentioned to me. That's unreasonable. Eight the greed three Tampa Bay race.

"To you by the Florida Department of transportation. This is lightning radio. Lightening certainly have some work to do as our first intermission report. Rolls along Greg Llanelli with you lightning trailing the islanders. Three nothing. At the end of one shots on goal. Presented by Yegor Mercer. The Fisher shot of the Tampa Bay Lightning. Ten six islanders leading in that department. Let's talk to our good friend, Eric and send from lightning insider dot com and host of lightning lunch, which you can hear one or two weekdays on lightning power player. I also had the last call after the game and the way it's turning out. Now, we may be very active with a lot of lightning fans upset e that Tampa Bay down three nothing in it really got off to a tough start right off the bat with a penalty by air. Chuck. Yeah. Not an ideal start to have to face, you know, the power play on the opening shift of the game. And and really, let's give credit the islanders. They blitzed. And they were all over them. They were quicker on tack. They require to pox. They were winning battles. I took a while for the line to wake up and unfortunately by the time, they did it was already three nothing. But you know, it's kind of hard to keep yourself in these positions and think that you continue to come back. But certainly this team show McCann. Yeah. Puck possession to a little bit of an issue there. A couple of turnovers e that led to some glorious scoring opportunities for the islanders. Yeah. But let's let's give credit again. We talk all the time about a goaltender. How do you respond to situations like that and Mekelle circuit shaft turns the puck over right on a stick him at bars. Alborz goes down for a breakaway and basil if he comes up with a huge save. I mean, those are the moments that you you wanna see your goaltender still try and give you a chance to stay in the game. And give you a chance to come back. And look that's what the lightning have now. I know it's three nothing. They didn't play a good opening ten plus minutes, but he played pretty good final five or six minutes. I get a power play here to start the second period. And let's hope we can look back at that basil, let's say then say it says, it means something I certainly have a star next to it for sure. And I'm sure it's something we'll address moving forward here any concern with the slow starts. I know we've seen this before. And John Cooper is alluded to it. And he mentioned this last night. He felt like they sleep walked in that first period against buffalo. Yeah. I think you have to start worrying about it a little bit. You know, we're at a point of the season though, it is the dog days of the season. You know, we've mentioned last week going into the stretch of games that they had with the opponents that they have traveled that they've had the fact that you have the bye week coming up at the end of next weekend. There's a lot of things that improved to be distracted. Sometimes. So maybe that plays into it a little bit here during the stretch. You know, let's let's let's judge that maybe more. So by the time the team comes back from the bye week. It starts to get into that stretch drive mentality. And we'll see if they can turn things around that you think we'll see before we let you go. John Cooper, maybe start to tinker a little bit with lines or do you feel like he likes what he sees offensively towards the end of that first period? No, I think he liked what he saw. You know, there was there was some good puck moving. There was some possession. You saw the four check start to get you found some traffic in front of Thomas Christ there. So I I think that I don't think he'll tinker too much with it. It was interesting to note, though, the mckell circuit chef was not out there on the power play off for the second unit. There the first time around it was Ryan mcdonagh. So we'll see you back in ten years. He will do it again in our second intermission report. Thanks, greg. Eric Garland's in joining us there. And if you have some questions you want to ask us use the hashtag ask e to add Greg Llanelli, and at Eric under squirrel, and we'll get to those comments in our second intermission report scores when we return on leading radio..
