"But they have always been discrepancies. You go around for the last few years go around the north of England and watch handicaps with Irish horses coming over and it was like two races a lot of the time and quite frustrating. So I'm not going to say the round. With regards to cheltenham, I'm not clued up enough to really have a strong opinion. I have noticed this year that British based novice hurdlers and for me I can only speak mostly northern novice hurdles are definitely acquiring lower rates than they have in the past. We would run a horse in a northern novice hurdle. You'd probably be taking on one, maybe two other horses with a chance, three or four, be floated now and getting a mark as is what everyone seems to do now, the second horse had disappointed you'd win on the bridle and get one 40. You know, and have absolutely no chance of even being able to compete in the South of England, never mind with Ireland. But that does seem to have changed a bit. Now, I'm guessing that means that there's horses, there's horses not going to get in some of these handicaps because they have a more sensible Mark. So they're going to be swamped by Irish horses again, I guess. That's where the problem could come. Touch on just a few of your children runners in a moment if you don't mind. But previous successes overturn was an absolute legend. I mean, you alluded to him there the Galway hurdle. He won the tumble in plate, the fighting 5th, placed in a champion hurdle, just to go, how can we forget the Chester cop? To be a dual purpose horse and to win as much prize money as he did and to succeed at the level that he did. He must have been a real thrill to train. Yeah, he was just a pleasure to have around the place he's still at Tim Leslie's now in the field and we're going to see him in the summer and that sort of stuff and he comes back now and again but overturns a funny little Aussie just always always turned up. Always turned up and just had that way racing that was just so thoroughly likeable you know had a very different view. I had two awesome second in the champion hurdle peddlers cross I was absolutely distort. Overturned I was absolutely thrilled because he wasn't that good if that makes sense. He had no right of being second in the champion hurdle, but because he always turned up he was. I remember how highly you regarded peddler's cross and he was a fighting 5th when they were as well. You did come up against hurricane fly in fairness of 5 time Irish champion hurdle winner in the end, but you were saying you were distraught that day. Yeah? And it was the first time we'd ever been beaten. If you saw people still ask me now because everybody will talk about overturn, but if people actually saw the things he did here at home, they score scallops, et cetera I can't tell you. I will struggle to ever have a horse as talented as him again. And I wasn't distraught that I got beat because I can handle that arms every day of the week. The bit that got me was they were up size jump in the last and hurricane fly went and length up on him and I was for some reason I was stood down by the chuck and you could see the physical effort that he put in to try and get back upsides him again. You could actually see it in front of your eyes and that was a very humbling thing to see a horse train so hard for you. Sounds a bit wet, I suppose. But I could just see he'd never been beaten and he didn't want to be beaten and to see that come out, look, you see it in fights, you see in all sorts of sorts of but you actually see that come out in one of your horses was a really humbling experience and I couldn't really speak afterwards and I was in hindsight. He was probably never the same horse again. It nearly finished him. He won lots of more lots more races, but he was never quite the same wars after that day. Yeah. I remember him going for the now brown advisory. Now the Turner's got it right, sponsorship names are changing so much. And it just didn't quite click from over there. No, no, no. Jump fences, no problem. He was just never his wind and physically he was never as strong again. There were frailties ever since that day. Do you think that regular listeners to the show will just be screaming at their speakers if I don't say this to you? Massive hurricane fly fan. From the day he made his debut before William Mullins, I my jaw dropped, it was like this horse will never be beaten. And frustratingly, he missed two children, first of all. But that was on him. And I was in both horses because it takes two to tango. And I thought the boldness of ruby to hold onto him in the way that he did coming over the last. And then the way that peddlers cross battles back, but equally hurricane fly still pulled out more when people were saying, oh, manju can't get up the hill at the cheltenham. And he goes and does it. There was something just quite special about that race. But is that an example of when a horse who had been unbeaten meets defeat that it something cracks in their mind? They're like no, it wasn't mental. It wasn't meant to be. Is it physical? Yeah. He was just never the same was again. Now, I would argue, and I'd argue quite strongly, but there's no point because nobody in I don't believe me anyway. Overturn on his merits ran in that race. That year as well. And because he was running on his merits and Jason normally rode him as well, Graham gave him a quality ride, but didn't go hard enough on him. Grammy. If he'd gone hard on him, from start to finish, I still think pedals cross all the one. Well, maybe we'll never know. And I'm not speaking from a position of strength to God. It's a nice hypothetical. Overturn things about 7th or 8th that year he was second the year after because he was ridden to his positives and his positives would have helped bring out the best in peddlers cross and maybe blunt a little bit of hurricane fly. Yeah, because it took it took something out of both of them. I mean, it's a huge credit to hurricane flights constitution that he bounced back, but he wasn't right the next season. No, and he didn't run the next year, did he?.

"It was just an incredible experience, you know? And it was just great just to listen to your articulated there because sometimes we do forget these kind of important things. And it's like what I always blabber on about, do people just talk about bets and horses and prices, whereas that's just such a good representation of a race and a family history that I can nearly touch now at this point during the conversation and I have my own little memory of it as well, and it's just it's fantastic and to go back to your question about Michael O'Leary, I think I don't know. I think sometimes he delivers things in let's call it a Michael O'Leary way, but the man has his point, right? And you know, I think that if the horse takes a bio after a victory next week or in ten days, then that would be it. And then we've all got to move on. Like, racing fans love to just argue something to the death, but if that horse wins, then you put a line under it and you respect it and enjoy it. And you don't talk about whether the handicapper was doing the right thing. Should they have campaigned the horse to drop it a little bit in weight or whatever. I think it would just be an incredible thing. And treat the national this year for what it is, not what a load of what ifs. You know, thrown in, but I suppose the way that kind of mister O'Leary delivers it, it is kind of contentious in some way. And you nearly feel like arguing about it. But he's just making this point, and as I say, I don't know the man at all, but he's entitled to it, but a little piece of me would go. He's known for a long time. He wasn't going there. They could have run up last year and they run him in the grade one, then he was tailed off, and then stayed on as Nikola pointed out on racing TV stayed on really well towards the end. But like we forget that he wanted to triumph. What year was that? They could he do? Okay, so, you know, like the horses had a great career. And I had a great career. So yeah, we shouldn't kind of focus in on those sort of things. And I think just to enjoy that sense of occasion now in the type of race that it is, it's awesome. I think it's a shame. I think it's slightly belittled as achievements with what's gone on. He's a wonderful little a source, but I think with all the flow and so on, it's quite quite quietly belittled bodies at what he's actually done. I can, I can understand this year, I can't understand last year. Last year, to run him in the great one doesn't make sense. Sorry for coding across you there, but is that not what Michael O'Leary does? Like he kind of, by Jesus, I just know that the guy kind of has his way of arguing things, like I understand exactly what you're saying, but it wouldn't really affect me. I kind of, when I listened to it, I go, that's my totally there, giving out about X did you know what I mean? I would be thrilled to have the top weight in every year's grand national. Yeah. 'cause it means you've got the best horse. You got the best horse. I can understand that a 100%. Yeah, I can relate to that. Yeah. But look, if it does finish next week, or in ten days time, then yeah, you had an incredible, an incredible career, and we just move on. That's a pleasure when you go to Gordon, season box one. And I was cheeky enough to open the door and go in. You'd probably toss me out of here. A bit thrown out onto the streets of Liverpool, but I opened the gate and just went in and gave my hog and got my friend Jim Delaney to take a picture of him with me. And Kevin O'Brien was there, and seeing the events was the all about Sunday open day. And he goes, listen, he knows about horses. He knows how to be on horses. It's okay for him to open. Everybody else don't be doing that now. Don't be following his lead. Speaking of the grand national, you acquired mister Whitaker. Very shrewdly. And these entered in the grand national, I presume. It's not looking quite true now. Is it at the moment? No, it's not really worked out. I was hoping to be honest, I've always wanted to get a good national and for Tim Leslie. And we will do, but I was trying to find a bit of a shortcut and he had a big rating. This season, the rules changed in this country and horses were getting dropped for not running even if it was just for summer and that sort of stuff. What's your take on that? Because that's controversial for cheltenham at the handicaps as well. Yeah, I mean, because it only applies to British horses. There have always been discrepancies in handicap in between England and the half, I guess we were one of the last people to take an English also when we're in Irish handicap. Gaba hurdle? But I was told by whoever the I was handing up was at the time and I apologize that I had to talk with him and he said the further what you ate in the ratings you go, the less discrepancy is like it's a pyramid. And he was going to carry very near top weight, so it was irrelevant. And as it turned out, he was a grade one horse anyway..

"That's dangerous about the t to is that i don't have the edge. I don't have the coffee edge. That i feel like i usually have at the beginning of the show where anything can happen. I can say anything you know like somebody no. You can't compare just doing a line of crack right before the show. That's god as for me. But i don't have that day. I don't have the energy. I know i can see line. Yeah i i think we we balance each other out pretty well I woke up like at nine. And i missed all my alarms. I don't know what the hell that was all about. I just haven't been sleeping a whole lot lately last night. I stayed up in plain. Death's door to stand up like three in the morning. And i'm so close to one hundred percent and there's like to fucking secrets. I cannot figure out man. I cannot figure them out and it's will help you out because that's all you tweeted. Let them know they did not they did. Not i got the true ending true ending but there are still two extra secrets that i cannot figure out and ladies and gentlemen let me tell you in the way that you inspect items and souls games and you can bring up the item and rotated similar to resident evil games. Couple of couple things in some of these items that you need to look around for the i hate that. That's like my least favorite thing even when it comes to solving shit it's like oh the whole time to rotate this item. Look at the bottom. Because there's a button there reason that no but there's no button or anything bullshit like that. It's just more of a this thing that had been looking at and trying to figure out since episode one of the places that i put up of like this has got to be a puzzle. There's no way this is not a puzzle. Couldn't figure it out and said screw it. I'll move on and then one thing when you beat the game. Every door will shine pink. If they're still a secret there okay and the doors that you're cleared are no longer sort of emanating this light and sound like god. Damn what is the secret. I know the and i just happened to go through the items and then i rotate. It was like oh and one of those moments blessed. That's awesome moments. i real. I really wanted to get back into the plane. Death's door last night. Because that's all we talked about a little bit on the games catherine. I'm gonna talk about in a second boat. Roger re tweeted how long to be in there. Like oh yeah. It's a six hour long game to be in. Rogers like yeah. This is true. But i kept playing and realizing that it doesn't take that long. Beat maybe go okay. Cool i can sit down with this in one or two nights and just knock it out and probably get addicted to if you're doing that but hopefully be able to get through it so i can get onto other games. And so they also i plan last night but i got by little game a little indie title. Gt online. Oh jesus end up playing for three hours last brand new game twitch new game they did have a brain update though that is kind of fire. I'm feeling the gpa or online update. It's basically basically include this fast and furious like a cartoon or culture where you go to this. Carney you can. You can a pimp out. You're ride and you could show off your ride and hang out and do races like underground races. All of this stuff that makes it feel like a frisbee underground combined with facet furious. I've been absolutely loving. I think i'm gonna play more of it i mean. Gt online a lot of time but this one might be the one that has been for quite quite a few hours. That sounds kind of sick. Actually that sounds really cool. As you make the call on twitter and be like anybody wanna hop in and and i politely declined and i said no thank you doug to get snug slacks in chat says don't you i do but i wouldn't really go as far to say that. Death store has super puzzle. Type moment they are so quick and so easy to figure out. And i think the game would be a bit tougher if the puzzles were a tiny bit tougher. A lot of the times opposes that you're doing death store. I think are just more about doing it unless about figuring them out. Because it's obvious. I shoot that thing i shoot that thing and this brings me here as opposed to there being something you need to uncover like when i think. I think this game is more about uncovering mysteries than it is about solving puzzles. Yeah yeah i'm with. I'm with you. I'm trying to find a trailer for this interesting kevin able to find it and pull it up. That'd be that'd be great because it's actually really fun last night onstream. I spent thirty minutes straight just tuning of a car in the garage. Like adding all these customization features making it look dope dope as yellow car with a dope ass livery to it reminded me a plane for its horizon a bit. It's a really cool thing. I can't wait for for it's a man. I can't wait before it's either but for now. Let's get into housekeeping. There's a new games. Cast that i was talking about just now where we won reviewed door but then also we talk a lot about melania solid and so check that one out of my favorite those games cows. We've done so far because is legitimately the second half of just us nursing out because if you've been following some playing mega solid on the twist rooms trying to go through all the games we're halfway through one right now i. It's kinda re-live into this melody solid culture. I kinda funny which. I cannot be more happy about because all of us here for the most part really love melody solid and i think it's like the one game where i think we're all different kinds of gamers right like andy loves. The hyperloop drifters in the valley and the indie games right. Greg loves his weird narrative games and avengers division. Shit right tim leslie the intendo stuff. I love this stuff. I love right but millio- solid is like the one thing where we all hold hands on and we were all big fans of this thing. So for the second. Half of the games catch doc about that and i cannot recommend that episode enough so check that out on dot com. So that's kind of funny games and also youtube dot com is.

"This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm David green. And I made Martin police can seize someone's property cash or cars, even if they just the specked it's associated with a crime and the property owner may not even be charged with anything. The practice is allowed under a powerful tool called civil asset forfeiture. It was revived in the nineteen eighties activists on both the right and the left say forfeiture is routinely abused. And in February the supreme court gave them a win. So far though there's little sign. The ruling is preventing police from taking people stuff. Here's NPR's Martin Kosti when Tyson Tim's was caught selling about two hundred dollars worth of heroin. He pleaded guilty and served six months of home detention followed by probation. He accepted that what he didn't accept was at the police also seized his Land Rover. I want my truck back. I've always wanted it back. He bought the forty two thousand dollar vehicle with insurance money. But the police kept it on the theory that he'd used it to transport small amounts of heroin. I didn't feel like it was right? I wanted to. To try and do something about something. Because I thought it was kinda ridiculous that they could take my vehicle like that so easily he fought the case for years right up to the supreme court during oral arguments last fall, the justices seem to agree that something is out of whack with forfeitures. Here's just as Sonia Sotomayor, many of them seem grossly disproportionate to the crimes being charged. And Tim's won the case unanimously, but the ruling itself was pretty narrow it simply says that the eighth amendment's protection against excessive fines applies to the states to and estates already had that protection their constitutions says Lisa Sorenson. So presumably the case will have no real impact at all sorts executive director of the state and local legal center, which took Indiana side in this case sure, she says the court has now made it crystal clear that excessive fines are unconstitutional, but still not clear is what that means ten verses in the Anna is like. The skeleton. So now, we know there's bones in the closet, right? But there's no meat on the bones. And the meat will be when the supreme court defines what excessive is we're just not there yet. She expects this process will take years just as took the court years to define excessive force, but others think Tim's may have a quicker affect in Georgia lawyer named Mathew Cava Don says it strengthened his hand when he challenged the county seizure of his clients moped. This was actually his main mode of transportation. He was the Goshi with the prosecute over the moped around the time that the Tim's case was decided being able to bring in part of the Bill of rights and say that that prohibited. This seizure that mattered a lot. But the prosecutor denies that. Tim's made the difference hall county assistant district attorney Wanda. Vance says she gave the moped back because it simply wasn't worth her time anymore personally hits prosecutor day working on this out that forfeiture. We just got to be where we made kind of decision. It wasn't an interest of Justice. Anymore for us to continue, and that's an important detail here it costs money for both sides to contest forfeiture. This is civil law. So you don't get a free lawyer and a lot of people just end up abandoning their stuff to the state. That means fewer forfeitures get challenged and fewer cases, get to the high court's that might help to define what excessive means Wesley. Hot is the lawyer on the Tim's case, he's with the Libertarian-leaning institute for Justice. He says Tim's could take this case all the way to the supreme court only because the institute was willing to cover the cost three quarters of a million dollars is his guests. It's hard for the law to develop in a way that favors property owners when the amount in controversy is going to be so much less than what it costs to live gate instead of waiting for the courts, he wants lawmakers to step in and some of them are in the Minnesota legislature. This year Representative John Lesch says the Tim's ruling has lent moral support to a Bill limiting forfeiture, though. He says some lawmakers in both. Parties are still hesitant to cross law enforcement that I got an Email from a democratic Senator forwarded to me just the other day. And it was copied by his local sheriff said if my local sheriff is against us. There's no way Bill is getting my vote law enforcement says it needs civil forfeiture, especially to confiscate drug money. When the traffickers can't be found and prosecuted Dakota County sheriff Tim Leslie says the Bill in the Minnesota legislature would make it harder for him to disrupt the growing meth networks this region, but he also acknowledges the political importance of high profile cases, such as Tim's those outrageous examples, we have to face Bose, but we just don't want to pendulum swing too far who want to still have some tools for the outrageous things that we see as to Tyson. Tim's whether he ever gets his truck back is still undecided. The supreme court left that decision to the courts and Indiana, Martin Kosti NPR news. And some other news. Federal prosecutors say thirteen parents charged in college admission scandal have agreed to plead guilty in Boston federal court also pleading guilty is a former coach at the university of Texas at Austin. He is admitting he took bribes to accept a student on the tennis team for Thais from member station. W in Boston has more one of the parents is actor, Felicity Huffman. She's admitting she paid fifteen thousand dollars to have someone else take her daughters. SAT exam Huffman sent a letter to several media outlets in which he says, we've deep regret and shame over what I've done I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stemmed from those actions the maximum penalty for the charge to which she's pleading guilty is twenty years in prison. But prosecutors recommending Huffman serve a much lower sentence in part because she's admitting her guilt law. Professor Douglas Berman teaches sentencing at Ohio.

The practice is allowed under a powerful tool called civil asset forfeiture. It was revived in the nineteen eighties activists on both the right in the left say forfeiture is routinely abused. And in February the supreme court gave them a win. So far though there's little sign. The ruling is preventing police from taking people stuff. Here's NPR's Martin custody when Tyson Tim's was caught selling about two hundred dollars worth of heroin. He pleaded guilty and served six months of home detention followed by probation. He accepted that what he didn't accept was at the police also seized his Land Rover. I want my truck back. I've always wanted it back. He'd bought the forty two thousand dollar vehicle with insurance money. But the police kept it on the theory that he'd used it to transport small amounts of heroin. I didn't feel like it was right? I wanted to. To try and do something about something. Because I thought it was kinda ridiculous that they could take my vehicle like that so easily he fought the case for years right up to the supreme court during oral arguments last fall, the justices seem to agree that something is out of wack with forfeitures. Here's Justice Sonia. Sotomayor many of them seem grossly disproportionate to the crimes being charged. And Tim's won the case unanimously, but the ruling itself was pretty narrow it simply says that the eighth amendment's protection against excessive fines applies to the states to the states already had that protection their constitutions says Lisa Sorenson. So presumably the case will have no real impact at all sorts, executive director of the state and local legal center, which took Indiana side in this case sure, she says the court has now made it crystal clear that excessive fines are unconstitutional, but what's still not clear is what that means. Ten verses in the Anna is. The skeleton. So now, we know there's bones in the closet, right? But there's no meat on the bones. And the meat will be when the supreme court defines what excessive is we're just not there yet. She expects this process will take years just as took the court years to define excessive force, but others think Tim's may have a quicker affect in Georgia lawyer named Mathew Cava Don says it strengthened his hand when he challenged the county seizure of his clients moped. This was actually his made mode of transportation. He was negotiating with the prosecutor over the moped around the time that the Tim's case was decided being able to bring in a part of the Bill of rights and say that that prohibited. This seizure that mattered a lot. But the prosecutor denies that. Tim's made the difference hall county assistant district attorney Wanda. Vance says she gave the moped back because it simply wasn't worth her time anymore personally hits the prosecutor day working on this one for her. We just got to be where we made kinda decision. It wasn't in the interest of Justice. Anymore for us to continue, and that's an important detail here it costs money for both sides to contest, the forfeiture. This is civil law. So you don't get a free lawyer and a lot of people just end up abandoning their stuff to the state. That means fewer forfeitures get challenged and fewer cases, get to the high court's that might help to define what excessive means Wesley. Hot is the lawyer on the Tim's case, he's with the Libertarian-leaning institute for Justice. He says Tim's could take this case all the way to the supreme court only because the institute was willing to cover the cost three quarters of a million dollars, his guests. It's hard for the law to develop in a way that favors property owners when the amount in controversy is going to be much less than what it costs to let gate instead of waiting for the courts, he wants lawmakers to step in and some of them are in the Minnesota legislature. This year Representative John Lesch says the Tim's ruling has lent. Moral support to Bill limiting forfeiture, though. He says some lawmakers in both. Parties are still hesitant to cross law enforcement. I got an Email from a democratic Senator forwarded to me just the other day. And it was copied by his local sheriff said of my local sheriff is against us. There's no way this Bill is getting my vote law enforcement says it needs civil forfeiture, especially to confiscate drug money. When the traffickers can't be found and prosecuted Dakota County sheriff Tim Leslie says the Bill in the Minnesota legislature would make it harder for him to disrupt the growing meth networks in this region. But he also acknowledges the political importance of high profile cases, such as Tim's those outrageous examples, we have to face those will we just don't want the pendulum to swing too far who want to still have some tools for the outrageous things that we see as to Tyson.

"IAS's by the way, that will only work for so long. A group fighting the legalization of recreational marijuana. Minnesota took their arguments at the state capital yesterday where they were met by hecklers who support the drug don't guys don't do that. What are you doing their arguments? Knock it off already smart approaches to marijuana smart approaches to marijuana Minnesota Sam. An answer. That was also a very good. Minded community members and law enforcement officials to speak to the risks of marijuana at the capital press conference. And at least a dozen pro pot active is interrupted the speakers with their own views. You guys you're you're being dumb. We're heading this way. We're we're we're we're heading this way. You don't need to be stupid about it. This is an advocating either way this is just in terms of tactics. This is a really dumb way to go. And try to get what it is you want. When you have the wins, you know filled with pot smoke blowing your way. By the end. You know, this is what annoys me is. Like, I drives me nuts when you have groups that are so sure that they're right. It doesn't matter if I agree with them. They're so sure they're right. That they think anybody who opposes them as an idiot. This Guinea buddy who opposes them as an idiot. And they and they just mock and make fun of. It's that same. It's that city-pages tone. Yeah. Where it's like, you're aware. So right. And we're so righteous, and we know we're smarter than you. And so we don't have to engage with you when it comes to the merits of your arguments, we just get to mock you and and make fun of you. I mean, there are there are legitimate. And while I tend to lean towards the legalization or decriminalization side of things. I don't discount that there are real legitimate concerns and arguments from the groups that are opposed to it totally agree with your commentary. You know, it's a good thing that we're not like that at all just tell you know, we never do what say rise above it. Was six we do as an idiot. And you stop shaking your head in there. Blondie? By the end of shouting match erupted and those on both sides of the debate grew frustrated with with one another I think we do have a bit of audio of that this is a lot of noise. Right sam. Yeah. It's a lot of noise. You can hear a little bit of the dialogue. But mostly just noise. Here's the here's the setup Dakota County sheriff Tim Leslie called marijuana powerful. Narcotic say urged lawmakers to take their time if they do choose to push for legalization nothing wrong with that. It's actually a very sure. Yeah. It can be the potency of of of today's modern pot is very very strong. And by the way, just click on that. That's I think that's what gets lost a lot of the debate. And this goes, and this is again, not taking a side either way because this is going to sound like, I'm I'm anti and I'm kind of more withdrew I'm leaning more towards freedom in this particular issue. But a lot of the concerns that those that that anti pot active. Vists are those that are concerned about legalization is the potency of it. And there is relevancy to that the the the marijuana that you get now is a heck of a lot more potent than the marijuana was back when when when we were younger activists, John no activists artists been told activist John Thompson chastise, Leslie and other speakers who spoke against the legalization he shared how his friend full-on Casteel shot and killed in two thousand sixteen by an officer who smelt Burt marijuana in the vehicle, and that's when everything God does that control..
