"So many unsung heroes in the sport and I'm going to continue to focus on those who do wonderful work behind the scenes. But this week, I thought I'd do something a little bit different. I thought I would shake it up. You're going to hear from a not so unsung hero in Hall of Fame trainer Todd pletcher who gets ready to settle in the mother goose later today at Belmont park Todd looking for a 7th victory in that race. He's currently tied with his mentor, D Wayne Lucas with 6 and if he win today, he'll stand alone atop that list, but he is a top so many listen, I was thinking back to his win in the Belmont stakes in his relationship with longtime relationship with owner Michael poley and I said, you know, let's do something different. Let's focus on a not so unsung hero on this sport in this sport this week. With this week's edition of unsung heroes all presented by woodbine Todd pletcher took time to visit with our Bobby Newman on our bedding with Bobby show yesterday and here is that conversation. Please to be joined by Hall of Fame trainer Todd pletcher now Todd, thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule. Happy to do it, Bobby. Todd, we know you've been a busy man. First of all, congratulations on a great finish in the Belmont stakes. We saw so much of Mike ripoli on TV. What are your reactions when you're running one two down the stretch? Well, you know, it's pretty rare in any race, especially a classic where you kind of get to the 8th pole and you're running one two and you feel pretty confident that you've got the race in hand. You know, and I'm always one that waits until we get to the wire to really take it in and enjoy it. But in that case, kind of got to watch the last 8th of a mile with confidence that we were going to win. So it's just really, really able to just sit back and kind of enjoy the moment. Must be exciting, getting to do it for two of your longtime owners, donegal racing, and Mike Ripley. How did those two come together in partner in modale before the Belmont? Well, actually, within Mike, obviously, has been following mode Donna Gould's career from the beginning, partly because I train him and partly because he's a son of uncle mug who might obviously owned when he was running and still owns a part of him standing stuttered Ashford, but so he was always taking a little more interest in the horse because of that, but he was also an aqueduct. I think when he won the rems and he was at aqueduct, the day of the wood memorial. So he was able to see him in person a couple of times and Terry was looking to possibly put together a deal. With someone and when it was presented to Mike, he had interest in it and they were able to come to terms prior to The Kentucky Derby. Fantastic effort by both of your runners in the Belmont mode donegal and the Philly nest of course nest was coming off a second place finish in the Kentucky oaks. That was not your only Kentucky oak starter though. You also had, who was a Philly that a lot of us didn't know anything about going into the Kentucky oak. She was undefeated four for four racing in Dubai, but then moved over to your barn. She ran a better than looked race in the yolks. What did you think about her trip? And what do you think about her and tomorrow's grade two mother goose? Well, I agree with you. I think she did run a race that's probably better than it reads on paper and she was still closing pretty well, hundred legs up underneath her at the end of the at the end of the race and the yolks and still closing ground. Unfortunately, there she drew a really wide post and then the mother goose. She's drawn the rail so we kind of went from one extreme to the other. But I think the one turned nature of the mother goose should suit her fine and hopefully the inside draw it in compromiser. Is she a Philly that needs some pace help ahead of her? Yeah, she's not a super quick Philly, but I think if they don't put on much pace that in this scenario it'll probably be okay she'll be able to lay a little bit closer. Well, we've talked about a few of the talented three year olds in your barn. You have so many of them would love to hear progress or the whereabouts of some of the other ones, not only did you have modon ago running in The Kentucky Derby, but you also had charge it and pioneer of Medina, where are these three year olds now and what's in their future? They're both at.

"Yeah? Yeah. In your dad was stationed there because he was in the army, right? Correct. Yeah. Yeah. It's a fantastic story. Did you have any interest in horses when you were in Germany? No. Not really. I didn't have any events or anything that had me mingle with any type of sporting horses. Horses that I really saw were horses because that was out in the country. That would be used for some type of labor aspect or another means other than this morning. Do you remember the first Kentucky Derby you watched on television? That's a good one. What would have been the first yeah, I'm probably drawing a blank. I can remember many of them, but I don't know who the first one would have been. Sorry, I can't answer that. Yeah, I guess it was probably after you came to the United States though, right? It was. Without a doubt. Yeah. Well, and now you're going to get a chance to participate in it. And you got a chance to learn from some of the best in the history of the sport with Bob Baffert and with Charlie whittingham. Bob certainly come under scrutiny with everything that's happened since last year's Kentucky Derby, but let's face it his record stands alone in terms of the greatest stakes and the Kentucky derbies and all those things that bob's been part of. And then you spend time with Charlie whittingham. Tell me about working with those two individuals and how those relationships came about. My relationship started with bob in the mid 80s and we had a mutual friend and I was wanting to get on bob's team back then. And so I was granted that opportunity through a mutual acquaintance. And getting the opportunity and then shifting over to the thoroughbreds. It gave me the opportunity to work with Charlie. And then very, very blessed to have had those opportunities to work for two Hall of Fame as two great horsemen. That's just to be able to work for one, but to be able to work for two as just a very special and I'm very appreciative of it. How would you compare their approach to training and their philosophy to training resources? I think their philosophy and their approach are very, very similar. And they both are very patient. They both read their horses very well. And they were just great conditioners. And I see many similarities in the way they conducted their training regiment. The difference between the two of them probably was their clientele. I would say that Charlie probably had more breeders that he was training for, he bred more. Trained more for breeders and bob was probably a little more active at the sales. Yeah, I think that makes sense. If Tim yak team were to look in the mirror and say, okay, this is one quality that Bob Baffert possesses as a trainer and this is one quality that Charlie whittingham possessed as a trainer. And those are the two qualities I would love to have as I go forward with my career. What are those two qualities? You know, it's a good question and it's one that I really, I really can't answer because they are both so much a part of me that I couldn't really choose and say this trait was fortunate enough to get from him and I was able to pick this up from the from the other one. I think it's almost like when you're cooking and you have all the ingredients it just the combination of everything just makes the whole meal and maybe it's a poor analogy, but I would say I just can't pick and choose that there's one thing that I feel I obtained more so versus the other. Yeah, I don't think it's a poor analogy at all. I think it makes perfect sense. There is so much of each of those and I'll call them your teachers, your mentors, so much of each of them in you. How do you describe your approach in philosophy to training racehorses now, Tim? Very much along the same lines of the people that I've worked for because that's who's given me all my education more or less and my experience has come from them. And it's basically you treat your horses with confidence and you respect what they're telling you and you try and place them or there are going to be most competitive. When we hear on trainer talk presented by phasic tipton, considering what Bob Baffert and Charlie whittingham both meant to your career. How hard was it Tim for you to watch bob go through everything he's gone through over the past year? Mike, that's something that it's personal and it's really something that I really don't want to elaborate on. If you move on to the next topic. Yeah. No problem. Yeah, it's one of those things that is a very personal thing for many people that were close to bob and worked with bob and came from that same school. And I certainly understand that. So Tim, the experience you're going to have at The Kentucky Derby is going to be second to none. How about your family? Tell me who's going to be represented with you at The Kentucky Derby. So I'm going to be fortunate enough to have my wife with me. My boards are going to be watching it from California. And I've got a huge team of supporters that are waiting for me there at Churchill. So fortunate enough to have some longtime friends, work colleagues that are actually going to have some of their own connections competing in the range and it's going to be a fun week and looking forward to it. When you were with silver charm and we were real quiet, what was your role there? How much interaction did you have with them? I didn't have a tremendous amount of interaction with them because at the time Owen hardy was traveling with them. So I had him at different points in their career, but not to Jeremy week. Or leading up to a Derby. Well, you got a couple of good ones this year, Tim, and I'm going to wish you all the best with those. Before I let you go, I'm going to ask you the same question that I asked Todd pletcher at the end of my conversation with him in the first half of the show. Complete the sentence for me. To win The Kentucky Derby, would be what? Well, Todd, you're already done it. So. When The Kentucky Derby.

"It was so similar to what she did in the sun coaster prep before that where she just put herself in a good stocking position. It's really kicked on at the end. So yeah, just that versatility to be able to kind of lay wherever you need to depending on the pace and then come with a big kick later on. Goddess of fire, is new to your barn after running in Dubai, tell me about those two. Well, is four for four in Dubai. She won the UAE oaks and press came to us and she daughter mornings. Half sister to looking at lucky. So she's got a real real serious category and we're not a 100% sure what kind of class he was facing when she was in Dubai, but she was doing it impressively. And she certainly trained great since she's been here. We've been able to work in company with some of our better horses and she's held their own very well. So she's traditionally not real quick away from the gates, socially to work out a trip, but like what we've been seeing. How long does it take you Todd to get to know a horse when they come in from another trainer or from another region of the country or another part of the world? Well, they're all a little bit different. This case, she's all class. She's been very straightforward, very, very easy for me to get to know and to train and her first work, she did find it, but then the second work is she really caught my attention. I said, wow, this really she's okay. You know, she not only finished up well, but out strongly and showed that those races, I think, were legit. Well, goddess of fire tell me a little bit more about her. I thought she ran in super last time, she lost to Kathleen O and the Gulf Stream oaks and definitely scored for four. And I thought we got to jump on the top of the stretch, but couldn't quite hold her off. But similar to what we were seeing about pioneer Medina, she seems like that she just keeps improving a little bit each race. So she can take another step forward, you know, she might have a shot. You know, I mentioned your other four wins in the oaks and you look at those names. You mentioned Melo thought who won it last year, princess of sylmar rags to riches and a shadow your first one back in 2004. That's one hell of a super perfect Todd. We're blessed. Those are four amazing foods. Yeah, they certainly are and it has been an amazing career for trainer Todd pletcher, who is my special guest here on trainer talk presented by phasic tipton. Todd just a few minutes left before we have to get to our commercial break, Tim yak team coming up in the second half of the program. When you come back to Churchill now, is it two time Derby winner? Is it like a master's winner coming back to Augusta? Is there a bit of a different feel or vibe when you come back there? I mean, the unique thing about the Derby is when you come back, you're coming back with different players each time. And so while maybe you certainly try to learn things along the way, things that might be beneficial to any horse, but at the same time you're bringing back new individuals and so you got to fly some of what you know and maybe forget some of what you know and use treaty to one of these individuals that have different needs for this particular year. So yes, I mean it's obviously it's really exciting and it's great to be excitement that the owners have and that's really what it's all about love to see them. Them getting so geared up for the big races and that's what keeps us going. 59 Derby starters coming into this year. I mentioned this earlier, it's the most of any trainer in the history of the game. That's incredibly impressive considering the fact that getting a horse to the starting gate for his maiden race or her maiden race is a major accomplishment, put that in perspective, Todd, 59 starter is going to be more after this year. What does that what does that mean? Put it in perspective. Well, I mean, I think part of what makes that part of the grade is that we've been able to accomplish some things leading up to that. And a lot of those are Arkansas Derby winners or wood memorial winners or bluegrass winners or Florida Derby winners. And so it takes some big wins to get here and that's part of the part of the excitement as well. But yeah, like I said, to me, one of the most gratifying things about what we do is when you see the excitement of the owners and how much they enjoy participating in these kind of events. Well, about a minute and a half left, I'll wrap it up like this, Todd, complete the sentence for me. To win a third Kentucky Derby, would be. That would be awesome. It would be an incredibly exciting and just never gets old coming back and giving it a try. Now it certainly doesn't and he's done it more than any trainer in the history of the sport and he continues to do it at a very high level. Todd pletcher ladies and gentlemen, Tod I know it's a busy week, so really appreciate the time here this morning or this afternoon. And all the best with this year's oaks and this year's Derby, my friend. Thank you so much. My pleasure. All right, trainer Todd pletcher, the Hall of Famer here on.

"You know. I've been kind of looking at the kirby results and you know the thing that you know that kind of stands out to me is that you know the top three finishers all had very good trips. I mean particularly particularly the top. Two and i you know i. I'd love to see medina. Spirit go under more greatness but boy he he's he he won't get a setup like that again and i thought i thought one of the interesting aspects of the race. You know if you looked at horses who might have been speed in this race midnight. Bourbon speed at the fair grabs watch raise. I mean he broke sharply. And then mike smith just wrapped up on him and he never got into the into the thick of it and medina spirit was Oh i mean it wasn't like he was setting tepid pace of you know all by himself but he you know he had as unpressured a An early lead as as you can reasonably hope for and nineteen dollars kentucky. Derby i just don't i just don't see him the the competition Letting them get away without at pimlico. So it I think we're going to have a different kind of race. I don't I don't disagree at all and some of this. Some of this reminds me of Of the specifically midnight bourbon reminds me of ox bows exploit as well From from a few years ago that He also was piloted by an aging veteran. Jock was gary.

"Record is about one every twenty years. I'll remember this year's derby fondly. But i you know i did have a real conviction on medina's spirit you know. We had a a a dr f. Podcast on wednesday laid out by reasons. They they turned out to be right. Explain explain to everybody what what appealed to you about. You know andy. Serwer like mutual friend talks a lot about horses past performances. Since well this this is all dressed up or this horses a little dirty up. Meaning that the horses last race makes him look either better or worse whitney really as well in the case of medina spirit. I thought the you know the his his loss in the santa anita derby which led most people to throw him out was Was was not a true bill. I mean i watched although the dirt races on that card closely every dirt also six dirt. Races were won by a horse Either on a leading all the way on the rail or who had a rail trip much of way and You know rock your world benefited by getting loosen. The lead on the rail medina spirit was was parked out at least three wide all the way around the track so if you drew a line through through that race and look at look at his record otherwise it was pretty good. He never finished worse than second figure of ninety nine which was as good as anybody else and He had You know the world's greatest trainer court or so You know. I i thought all also that you're not only stafford a great trainer but he is just one one of the few want people who really embraces speed and Recognize how important. It is and i felt confident that that he was he would have this source going to the lead so it it all added up and Work worked out Right according to script..

"All right. Jody Delhi is going to give us the odds on the Kentucky Derby race. Of course we've heard about is the law. Everybody's liked his. The law is the law. Well, there are other horses in the race. Right, Jody? That's right. Says the law is 45. This is current odds right now. They just opened the windows this morning. Ah, 25 minutes ago. This is current odds. Tis a law fortified. And then there is a pretty good distance between him and the next horses. And the next course is there's actually a pretty good distance of who are a pretty good racer. Who's the second choice right now. It would be Santa Anita Derby winner Honor AP at 8 to 1 Authentic, though, is 9 to 1. That's Bob Baffert horse who won the Haskell Tendo one Bob Baffert horse 1000 words Who won the shared beliefs. So you've got those horses? Ahh, right there. All four vying for second choice in the Derby. Let's run from the inside, post position out. We'll give you all of the odds here. A CZ. We go through it finish the fierce. The number one horse, The one eyed gilding has been scratched. He is not running in the race number two Max player, Ricardo Santana Jr. The jockey, Steve asked. Musa is the trainer Max player. Is down. 18 Toe one. He was a morning line. 30 to 1. He's back. He's been bet. Pretty good. So far enforceable. Adam. The skits of the jockey Mark Cassie is the trainer 23 to 1 down a little bit from 30 to 1 in the morning line. Storm. The court who was the breeder's Cup juvenile champion last year, Julien Les Peru is the jockey Peter Kurten is the trainer 26 to 1, Major fed James Graham and Greg fully 34 to 1. They were 50 to 1 in the morning line. Number six. King Guillermo has been scratched. Money moves. This is the one that is interesting to me. Money moves from Todd Pletcher, making just his fourth career start. Was a 32 1 in the morning line and is getting bet. Heavy. Todd Pletcher's Horse Down 15 to 1 South Bend. I don't think all the Notre Dame Ah money has come in yet on South Been 34 to 1, Tyler Gaffney, Leone and Belmont trainer. Mr Big News. Gabriel Sias trainer Brett Calhoun 47 to 1 number 10,000 words as we said 10 to 1. Number 11 Necker Island, who, by the way will have his blinkers off, so he's been running with blinkers on in his last few races. He will not wear blinkers today 51 to 1 Miguel Mania and Chris Hartman is the trainer. Soul a Valon Day. Patrick being cone Lucas Panici is the jockey Volonte 29 to 1 attachment, Right, Dale? Romans 49 the one I thought that he would actually get a bet down. I'm a little surprised that that one winning surprise winning impression is no surprise. He is 52 to 1, the longest shot on the board. Dallas Stuart and Joe Rocco. In the irons, New York traffic 15 to 1, Paco Lopez and Saffy Joseph is Ah Ah, actually, I think he's gonna end up being like the third or fourth choice when it's all said and done. Probably a little bit of a buzz horse here out here among the horseman Honore P. 8 to 1 in the 16 post position with Mike Smith. John Sheriff's is the trainer. Tis the law 4 to 5, Manny Franco and Barclay Tagg. An authentic on the outside Bob Baffert 9 to 1 John Velazquez in the iron, So there's your Kentucky Derby odds for right now and again betting is open. And we've got a bunch of our hot We have 30 minutes to the first post 31 minutes right now to the first post long time before we get to the Kentucky Derby, So a lot of money will be bet on there, Terry.

Dr Post's Rider on Unbridled Win at Gulfstream

"He is yet another late developer who may benefit quite a bit from a delayed and revamped triple Crown Dr Poster respond to urging size all over him with the tax rate top of the lane on the outside attack. But right from between Dr Post Doctor Post now up for the lead attack rated second let there be no doubt doubters best. It's Dr Post Uneven. Money winner that win. At Gulfstream in the ungraded unbridled stakes was the first time Dr Post had run a mile or longer. He'd run into sprints before that winning one this year and finishing fourth in his debut at Belmont Park last July and while his sire quality road one multiple graded stakes at a mile and an eighth doctor posts never wanted longer than seven eighths of a mile. So I'm pretty sure that when trainer Todd pletcher and owner Vincent Viola learned that the Belmont stakes would be shortened from a mile and a half to a mile and an eighth. They were probably not to dismayed. Dr Posts next start might come in the Belmont and Soda Talk About Him to talk about the return of racing in New York and other related topics we welcome in the gate. The man who has the best seat in the House to watch Dr Post his rider the two time defending clips award winning writer Iran Ortiz Junior. Tell us about all that. He overcame in winning that race at Gulfstream. Well he John Hord. I is learning by racist Green Green. Like I'd have to stay on him and but he everything's good in the behin. He wasn't bitching horses. I gotTA using monitor be to keep their then. Golly talk was the intimidate. Then we get through then. What getting now because he was seeing the horse. And what's more comfortable for me to start going because I can ride then. Finally when he gets. Put THE HEAD IN FRONT. You just take off like he got some work. Your go no yet can be a nice sort down the road will. You've said that when he grows up a little mentally it'll help him now. What shows you that. He's not yet mature in his mind. Not You know not Betty Serious on the do can feel it when do right. We'll fill their own horses. Datum care they. They know what they're doing he's Joan hordes talent but he don't know yet what he's doing you know he's looking. He spoke from the hotel sometimes. he running away from from the horse when he go by. When went to go by you look him? He's like drifting earlier so that mainly feel he's agreement. Nothing happen you just follow. Whatever I went through you know you raised it said Anita on Memorial Day you've run at Gulfstream and Churchill and will soon be returning to New York. How difficult is it to go through the testing process at each track to be cleared to come in and race? It better for you know like that's thing. I just really like three or four times. It's not too bad for me and I'm happy because like that. I'm okay to see my family. You know after I check from other also. I'm Don T my baby so I'm glad they do. They do hopefully they keep doing it their way to how challenging has it been to learn the different procedures that each track is taking to make sure that you follow all those safety and health rules.

Post Time: Fountain of Youth is leap day for Derby hopefuls

"Happy Fountain of Youth Day. Thank you thank you starting early today for so eleven. Thirty fourteen racist today so should be a good one. I don't know if people think chancellor card yet but I mean it's just stacked start to finish so we're we're gearing up for a day. How's the weather down there today? Good conditions it's great It was very breezy and on the chilly side yesterday. Obviously not Florida are rolling their eyes at US saying that it's cool but it feels different when it gets colder down in Florida will definitely say that. But it's gorgeous. Today it's going to be low. Seventies son is out a little bit less windy than yesterday as well. Let's start with the Fountain of Youth. That will be the final of the fourteen races on this Saturday program. Twelve horses are entered. There was some conversation about chance it potentially coming out because of the outside post position As of just a little bit ago I think he is still in so some decisions yet to be made but twelve horses set to go. How did you see this one? Yeah he is still and he does have until forty five minutes before the race as is the protocol for Great. It's so he's got some time There was one scratch just of the number two horse in there but This is a tough race chance. It's been really impressive. And Ultra talented and and obviously Fun Horse to watch down here but I did go with the Horse. That actually finished second to him in the Home Watch. Oh man and that is as you know on. Tv For Kelly Brian. I just thought that this course who I had not actually seen him physically before leading into that last race and he really showed me. Both in the flesh needs performance that he was the type that could handle the stroud and distance effectively. I think he's drawn well and he's going to be really tough. Obviously done this moment. It's going to take a lot of attention. Chance it as well and those are some good horses but I'm GonNa land on as seen on TV seen on. Tv Ninety two on the morning line has been extremely consistent. You mentioned the forest arts. Two wins two seconds and that runner up in the mutual macho man last time to to under pokka. Lopez here this afternoon. I'd like to spend more time talking with you about some of the other contenders but in the interest of time here this morning. Let's move on to the race. For the three year old girls we don't want to neglect the phillies The Dow is race number ten one mile on the main track. It will go right around that four o'clock eastern time. Yeah this is an exciting race. You've got tunnel shape city outside Saffy. Joseph's junior has obviously really burst onto the scene this year with the likes of math wizard and then of course potential Derby contender and Chan said and he's also got affiliate that Again is undefeated and turned out to be the first graded stakes winner for Tony. Lists and sire and she even though she's been so impressive it does kind of feel like even in this race that she still has a little something to prove. It'll be interesting I think that the race really revolves around the todd. Pletcher Philly in spices nice. I mean she was just a monster in her debut and I spoke to todd yesterday and he said that she was the phillies but they obviously really had high hopes for given the purchase price and her breathing out of the Dorsey and she not only showed up in her debut. But I watch pretty much all of her recent workouts at Palm Beach downs and I spoke to todd about this too and that she's been training for the most part with some of the really highly touted colts and his part including the point. Who was really well tipped out market analysis. Just some very talented horses. That have won first time out. And she's been training with the colts. A Lotta Sense. Kinda dwarfs inside too. She's a very very big Philly but she has a nice way of moving and they taught it said that was a way of them kind of testing. Just how good is she? And she's really responded to retest. Yeah that I start. She dominated her maiden race on January twelve. She won by twelve ran away from the field. That probably could have been more if they wanted it to be. That was at the same one mile distances. Today's Dimona del Was there a obviously? She was the favourite that day ACACIA but was a palpable buzz around spices. Nice when she walked into the paddock that day there was and you know she would not necessarily be the type of horse that I would pick out in a lineup Just face off of you know looks for a Horse. That would win first. Came out like I said. She's very big she by curl and She has kind of a long stride along next to her and I thought that she was going to win. But I was almost wondering puts. You need a race which you need to turn. And she's just so talented that she was almost kind of able to overcome. Maybe not looking like the precocious sharp I out type of winter so I thought that was really interesting as well. And and obviously this is going to be a tougher spot going right into graded stakes company but think that she is really one of the box. Office potential superstars on the undercard today. And I'm excited to see her. I also use underneath though in Second. I use five reluctant bride. Who I think is good and I like her switching to stay. She's got dirt pedigree and I spoke to Patrick the cone the other day and he said he tries a lot of his horses that he thinks are good. On the turf I F. A. Indian and sold allante being perfect examples and He says he thinks it's an easier trip. And then you switch them to dirt and that just might be where they're most comfortable and that's what he's doing with this one today who just closed so impressively in her first race. And I think that she's got some ability to talking with ACACIA. Courtney from Gulfstream Park here on the Horse Racing Radio Network Again Fountain of Youth Day Fourteen races. We have time to look at one more case you have about a minute or so. Just over that for we have to get to the next segment The Gulfstream Park Mile is race number. Twelve another big field. Eleven horses entered one mile on the main track. And this is a very interesting race gear. Mclaughlin had to including Hi Collin true. Kimber I really like hike. Second also layoff. I think he's GonNa be a big improvement for him today. And I think that it's kind of always flies under the radar is how Creek Hustle. He's actually my top picks some paddock school the other day for Vicki Foley. I think he's actually going seven furlongs. One Turn My. Oh which is what he gets today. just a side note. It's the treat to see Pegasus World Cup runner up MR freeze back. And he'll turn back and distance as well for for Dale Romans who could potentially have a big day. Yeah it could be a huge day for Dale and ACACIA. Has a very busy day ahead of her. So we'll let her go. Acacias squeezed me in this morning. I appreciate you taking a few minutes. Go enjoy the rest of the day and we'll talk soon. Thanks for being here all right. Thanks guys take care. She's the best Acacia Courtney. The little a here on the horse racing radio network do miss having her with us on the network but she's doing good things down there Gulfstream and on some of the other national. Tv

"Elsayed good morning I'm good said I didn't think to ask this accept the fact that The dirt mile fresh top of mind off of Mary's visit a we know that it's been an intrusive edition in a handle generator but what's what's its role really as a contributor into a stallion the prospect it just doesn't feel like it it it's all that valuable or or important from that standpoint well I think if you you know look at what Dick Mandela had told recorder as Lake to build sending in the article in the end his leaning towards sprint because appeals to more prestigious rates in the Breeders Cup Mile Dirt Mile and I kinda tell your you need to know the dirt mile probably lack of You know better word probably you're spot for unquote but he decided to go and sprint because it's much more prestigious rates you know the thing is mile races are important yet cigar mile obviously metropolitan mile those races are a pretty big stallions resume the Breeders Cup dirt mile as opposed to the biggest cup mile on on the glass doesn't have that cachet which basically question and with that idea in mind and absolutely right just looking at the and and here's you know here's the list of winners and of course city alight last year Battle of Midway Thamar coups Lemes map and certainly his his stallion career off to a very nice start golden sense back to back tap czar calebs Ossete Dakota phone furthest Land Albertus Maximus and Carinthian the first of the the dirt mile winners so it it isn't it's not as if you know that list golden sense in recent years golden sense and Leems map can't you can't argue with the with the early returns on hairstyling efforts no you know Liam's math at one of the prestigious Woodward Cutler is like Golden sense showed us forum early by winning Santa Anita Derby Day later cut back in in trips in one the I think he wanted dirt mild lights right no I mean you know both those horses are promising career tally as well obviously you know came into that race Legitimate prospects beforehand you know a wonderfully Catalina cruiser interestingly enough going this dirt mile and I don't know if they will or not because the only blemish is record I believe is that the dirt mile from a year ago the way he's he's perfect but the one thing he's whacking is that great one and that that would be important Chris his careers balancing now that's a fair that's a fair points for for a horse like for a horse like him just getting that yeah just getting that mark is is probably is probably enough and so from that standpoint you you WanNa pick the the race that is more likely to you're more likely to win remember I think when when when Vinnie Viola and and Todd pletcher made that choice with Liam's map it felt a little this pointing I mean because he looked coming off the Woodward way yeah it just felt like go for the brass ring although at the same time going off going off with a slam dunk slam dunk to some degree in the in the so you still have to go out and win it they don't give it away no exactly I so I just hit the big my biggest frustration I have no problem with anybody that goes in this direction it just it it in the breeders cups interest in handing the event it just invariably has taken courses from you know from two of the much more important races the classic and and the sprint although this year it's certainly not going to hurt the sprint this year the sprint which has been kind of limping along with smallish builds and and you know a little less interesting than it used to be not this year it's got every potential to be as as entertaining his any race on on the on the card over the two days said aside from Breeders Cup I've got a bunch of boy a whole bunch of things to talk about

At the Races With Nick Tammaro

"Churchill getting started would bind with they're the first really too big weekends they also course got the international later in the meet later in the fall and and that brings in some international shippers this woodbine mile just the mile either northern dancer the more you look at it. I thought was was was intriguing and there's plenty of other a lot of stars on the card including Holy Khaleda and pink Loyd. WHO's I I for a horse? That's one like twenty seven in a row. Nobody seems the talk about him or pay much attention to him. Bob Tillers streaking sprinter and here's a streaking sprinter victim Rio depends on where the sprint destination is. I think might Tapei at times but shop racing form a yes to the windows. Definitely Pink Floyd is is really sort of a marvel in terms of how he's performed well routinely I of course needed him to at least be third in this race last year in the contest and finished fifth so the pink floyd stop it will be nowhere near Wreck Stale Ontario and so his chances tomorrow we'll probably increase exponentially. He's in the early. They put the bold venture early on the card actually in fact when I went to the stakes together and put them up Derby Trail Oh. I didn't even look that that early on the card so I didn't even have to go back in fact I don't know if I did go back and put it up but there are a couple couple of very nice horses here including Carlin's honor the Jack Oxley Breezy York good old Yordan approaching half a million dollars for a chiefs would and Stewart Simon you know a lot of your a lot of your local players in the sprint scene but pink Cloyd is now twenty one twenty six and it really was late last year September October that he started to show some some frings signs of tiring and Kinda sputtered out at the end of the year could. Could he be beaten in here. I don't think so no it looks like he's he's back where he needs to be and I don't really know I guess other than Caroline's honor who's supposed to be particularly big threat to him in the spot so he he should get the job done. I mean it's always nice to see good. Horses do Well York than obviously was in much better form coming into this last year having run a good second pink Floyd Royd individual and and that was also during a period of time where pink floyd was having a really hard time getting out of the gate so he's a little ornery for a seven year old gelding and he had a little bit gate trouble really about four or five races in a row going into last year's bold venture he he's not he still not they really particularly the obedient or when it comes to getting out of the gate or being trained for it but he's definitely a little bit better spot with that right now so I think given that he's he's inform and should be sitting right off of the of the pace. If you worked in may be line to the front end. I think he should be okay before we talk about the Canadian the end the grade to which does start the cross country and will incorporate the pebbles and the nightcap at Belmont Nixon thoughts about last week at Belmont. We talked about this Jockey Club Derby and oaks and the Grand Prix. I talked to Andy on Tuesday. The Grand Prix was oddly contest than I thought but some some quick hits on opening the opening salvos at Belmont. I guess guess I'll try and keep it as charitable as possible. Given I took my shots at it last week but I think they played out largely. How we expected decide thought was a pretty impressive winner of the Jockey Club oaks overcoming? I think by all counsel was a pretty negative pace setup and winning is much the best running down Wonderman who I thought probably got a little bit more the run of the race and the American contingent as we expected in that race as well as the Jockey Club Derby were pretty much no shows and it could also be that the American continuing is pretty thin out by now. We'll talk about the pebbles and a little bit but the pebbles is going to be the ninth race for one hundred thousand dollars or more for three year olds fillies on turf going back to June sixth six and that's insane so the ranks of American horses that are ready to go a mile and three eighths early in September. We're really not very not very robust and and that proved out on the lady side and I thought Spanish mission I I actually thought he was totally out of position and thought that he was about to have a Jamie Spencer Special before he was able to overcome it and get the job done so a little bit. I know that the horse was capable of overcoming his writer. I I would imagine he he should be one of the better distant sources that we could potentially see over here next year given that he's going to be off now until the spring and there's just obviously connections that have problems shipping over the Grand Prix North American Jockey Club invitational brought to you by whatever most pretentious name of all time that was one of the most oddly run races I've ever seen first of all. I don't know how the hell everybody knew. Marconi was winning that race for fun and then to watch the riders of both realm and roaming union gather a hold of their horses so strongly almost as if they were waiting for Marconi to catch up and take the lead after he blew the break so that he could go one sixteen flat it was basically sort of the epitome of what we complain about left and right about American American dirt racing right now and you know in this day and age of sort of turf occasion of American racing where everybody points to turf races races are run like turf races. It's almost as if one horse makes the lead all the other guys say okay well. They're the pacesetter we're just GONNA go ahead and sit back and wait for them to come back to us and the majority of the time on the dirt that just doesn't happen even so shockingly Marconi was able to set a pedestrian pace and and went on with it and I I obviously would not have been a big fan of his at the price he went off often. We talked about how it looked like a bit more competitive race on paper the other todd pletcher trainee your to blame. I thought ran pretty well. He was able to stop the pace on the inside but you know I don't y horse like roaming union was in there if he wasn't GonNa GonNa contest the pace especially given that he's from connections like Michelle Navin who generally have a pretty decent idea how to win dirt racist so that was is a little bit of a head scratcher. you know look my personal opinion is that if there's any thought given to this turf triple. I really hope that same amount of money is committed to a dirt program and trying trying to incentivize horsemen to get there and run on dirt more frequently really try and build up the claiming ranks again because it's kind of embarrassing through the first three days of racing. I'm I'm sorry through the first three days of Racing Belmont there were seventy eight horses total entered to run on dirt and there are over seventy eight horses enter to run dirt in the first day at Churchill so I if the same number number of races and and that's that's not good. That's a big big problem that creates a big problem in the winter so that's my hope for it as it is. I guess we'll see probably a little bit better from Spanish mission in the Diese Lisa next year well we turn to Belmont today and into the weekend a couple of very good maiden races actually as part of that card and maybe we'll touch on them but let's let's look at the cross country pick five and it is comprised of of the three three of the stakes would bind the Canadian the mile and the northern dancer that you know you the top of your head. You wouldn't have thought it the three of them were as complex as actually I think they are and then the pebbles and the turf sprint claiming nightcap the eleventh at Belmont so let's start with the Canadian you know this is an interesting field the and really they'll competition. Idea should probably go off a pretty solid favorite. I don't really see how tactically you could make a real stand with her and she's a horseshoe. Obviously needs to lay back and make one run and you know those types generally at the mercy of the pace and this race does not look like it's going to have really any pace speak of so so she's going to have to overcome that now. I will say that you'll Rosario getting back on board to me feels like a very good thing. It does seem like she's just a little bit better horse when he's John Her but now the flip side of that is that we know Joel style. He's GonNa take her back and let her make one run so I mean they're they're going to. There's going to have to be some pace in here that you can't really foresee and I guess the hope is that Dixie moon and or starship do believe maybe show a little bit more speed than they have before. That's if you're back competition of ideas with any great fervor because obviously what this is shaping up as a situation where Holy Helena has a big tactical advantage on the other favorite and and she's been effective at Woodbine in the past. You look good winning the dance smartly last time Jimmy was giving a little bit of time since and I think she's a horse that that will really get the run of the race and and that's GonNa make her toffee. This could be a situation where on your your pick five. You're really leaning on those two pretty heavily and maybe you could give a little bit of a nod holy Helena on one one more additional ticket. I did want to try and make a case for to Riga and my hope is the Tyler Galileo. Maybe a little bit more aggressive with her than Johnny. Velazquez was was last time he finished just length and a half behind the competition of ideas did get into a little bit of trouble amazingly. She got into trouble in the three-horse rates which it happens of course and with a little bit cleaner run maybe second off the off the layoff off the ship in we can see some improvement grim oceans been a little the little laid back with her she she ran on July twentieth didn't work until August thirty first but might be one of those horses that can stay fit without doing that. I I'm always very very in tune and was looking at his horses in these kind of scenarios as they they generally overperform relative to their odds so I'm GonNa go ahead and include Theresa's well the and will include could starship jubilee more than likely those two has backups because I think they each offers some appeal at what should be better prices than the two chalks should note that ah Jimmy Jerkins after sending Holy Elena opt for the dance smartly basically is as left her there and oh my Gosh the stronach trainer but my Woodbine what is yes thank you Mike Doyle. Mike Doyle has been handling and Jimmy is on TV with seth deny after after precision is one and he told the story about Jimmy said he got the notification is it is stable mail all that Holy Helena had worked Labor Day weekend and so gets the notice he opens it up and Airy Jerry Sees Holy Elena six longs one eleven and three Jimmy said got on the phone to this is Mike what's going on up there and he said I really don't worry though or she did it easy. Did it easy the track was the polly was slick. It was cold or whatever yeah what eleven at three and you know what I did. I brought up with Jimmy that great story that is his father told about Bo purple and going out to Hawthorn for the Hawthorne Gold Cup on Tuesday the race as was Saturday and on Tuesday he gets a call from a Chicago sportswriter and said Jerkins. I wanted to ask you for comment about outvote purples work and said what about it. He says well he he he went a mile in one thirty. Two and three Korea broke the track record or mile. I think he went to violent at eight and broke the track record. What what forty seven forty six shades or something and and and Jerkin said you know? I'm sure he'll be fine and sure enough. He went out and won the Gold Cup but that was funny. One one eleven and three
