Bet on lily t i have a way of saying one thing and the exact opposite will happen. You know fred. Fred was really really well y He was well respected in the racing. Business is you know. Respect is what it's all about. If people respect you they will work with you. They will help you They will put you in in in the right spots where you can be effective and fred ho. Had all those and man. He definitely was one of the best. I've ever been around. And he was one of my favorite people in the entire world. Fred amy rick mclean is with us and rick Of course has had His hands in so many different roles. I mean a quintessential racetrack her and louisiana source. I mean there's so many there's so many people Not just not just louisiana but That that have the kind of Experience around the race track. That rick has had whether it you know whether it's the agent side of things or days as a publicist and and as a track announcer even right for period right. I don't respect called jefferson. Dow's which was right outside new orleans and They're totally closed in. Nineteen ninety two and then i was one of two announces epa fairgrounds. Tony bentley spent a number of years. Is tony bentley backup announcer. I was also the first announcer at sam houston race. Park went opened back in nineteen ninety. Four so i have been fortunate my entire adult life. I have been on the race track in man. It's taken me as i think everybody. Who's been on the racetrack. Tell you it takes you to places and it gives you the opportunity to meet people that you normally would not come across be being outside of the race track and you know going back to jefferson down. That was the first place. I'm kenny bork We were basically close to the same age so we were teenagers on the race. Track back at jefferson downs. And i will have was friends with kenny. I i to say mine tire light but it It it seems like most of my life that you know kenny. And i were really good friends. Talk about kenny. Bork because You know unfortunately his passing the kind of got lost in the holiday season one twenty five hundred races he did he did he was he was another personality. It seems like most of the good ones from louisiana had personality who go along. But i'm at kennedy pork. When i was the announcer at jefferson downs. In what. I was a teenager working on the backside with with the horses. And i'll tell you what kenny in. My opinion is probably very underrated. Jenny was as good a writer. As any writer that came out of louisiana a lot of races at jefferson downs. And for those of you who are not familiar with jefferson down. That was boring and it was three quarter mile bull ring in. It took a lot of talent and it just took something to be really as effective as kenny was on a boring now he wrote. I called back down for a guy by the name of herald. Delahoussaye of course was some kind of way related to eddie delahoussaye. An herro za leading trainer for a number of years have kenny was his goal to rider and kenny. One lots and lots of races at jefferson downs. He was a fan favorite You know randy romero in a conversation. That i had with randy because randy was amazing i remember sitting down talking to randy and him being able to recall certain races to stride prescribed. What happened but he told me he said you know. Rick there's a lot of talent that comes out of louisiana as far as writers. He says but what separates. Riders is a jockey that puts a horse in the position to win and give them every opportunity to win. Kenny board and i bring that up. Because kenny born was one of those writers he was always in the right place at the right time. If his horse was good enough he won. He probably wouldn't more races like a guy like randy romero and correct correct eddie delahoussaye because of being in the right spot at the right time Lot of times. They probably didn't have the best horse but because of the decisions that they made in a race. It made them a winner. And that's what kind of separated those guys and you always. I kinda go back to the saying. I heard.
