"Bet. Is the naira beds best bet. All right, Dave, where are you headed? It's raised 11 at parks that cotillion. I just think Dwayne Lucas has found the perfect spot for secret oath as in not facing boys and not facing nest. The two to one morning line is a bark in you suggested maybe we could get 8 to 5. I think that's a bargain too. I am interested to see what a dare manner does is a nice horse. I think secret oaths resume towers over this field and I expect her to win. All right, so secret oath for Dave in the grade one cotillion. I'm going to go north of the border to the grade three vigil on Sunday at woodbine and I think there's so much to so much reason to think that AV's flatter can be better Sunday than he was last time out in the grade three bold venture. He just did not get out of the gate very well. He was much further back than he wanted to be and he was very wide as date of alluded to coming off the turn and still only got beat a half a length that day by a few of the other horses that he's going to be running against once again on Sunday. Better start better position for AV's flatter and I think he gets the job done 7 to two on the morning line.

"Yellow with the call of the Florida Derby white a barrio winning it for trainer safi Joseph junior, the native of Barbados. He is here at The Kentucky Derby, and he is with us now here on the Derby countdown presented by hill and Dow at a lapa, this conversation, by the way, with safi brought to you by our good friends at jellyfish water. Safi, happy Derby week, my friend. I might thanks for having me, your honor. Yeah, it looks a little different here than garrison Savannah, doesn't it? A lot different. Judas dressed ready to go to Barbados. He's ready to roll. He got a barbarous gap. The Olympics have got the flying fish. I get the whole country. He was so excited to dress like this for you today. Oh, absolutely. Yeah, you were at the Derby trainer dinner last night, and I saw a picture of you up on stage. You had the hair down. You're in a man bun today, but the hair was down. Why don't you wear the hair down for us? Save him a special occasion. We're just happy to show it up today, by the way. Happy to have you with us. What's the experience been like this time around? I mean, it's much different than the last time it was Derby, no one was basically on the backside. It was a cool video. And even the front said, there was no fan. So you see the atmosphere this whole week. Today, yesterday it was a little quiet because it was raining, but today atmosphere that I want to be here every year, hopefully. We were talking earlier that way to barrio came by us today. We were standing at the rail, which by the way, it's just about 20 yards in front of us here. This is a fantastic spot to do the show. And why did barrio walk by? He went to the starting gate first, and then he went ahead and galloped after that. Talk about your strategy there. Yeah, this is routine normally in Florida. Let me go ahead and jog a bit. And then we go to the gate. We stand in the back out and then we yell up and so we kept the same routine today. He jogged to the gate, stood back out on had a good gallop, moved well, looks well, and so for things that have gone well. Yeah, he certainly was very smooth this morning and looked happy and glad to be at Churchill downs. That's a good.

"Going to be the first of the three big races, if you will. The three points races today with a post time of four 45 eastern. The bluegrass stakes goes next at 5 ten, and the Santa need a Derby will be the final race in the trifecta 20 minutes later at 5 30 eastern that's two 30 local time for our listeners out there on the West Coast. Last week, I asked you in our poll question, which of the three major points races appeared to have the deepest field? And remember, last weekend, you had the floor to Derby, the Arkansas Derby, and the Jeff ruby steaks. Really not a big surprise. The Florida Derby was your overwhelming choice. Why the barrio proved that his holy bull score was legit. And boy, he pulled away from that very deep and contentious field in the Florida Derby. Does that mean considering the results of the poll? That white a barrio is now the strongest Kentucky Derby contender because he won the race, most of you regarded to be the deepest prep. Interesting question, interesting way to look at it. I'm going to ask trainer safi Joseph junior that question when he joins me later in the show at 9 20 eastern safi will also send out AP secret and Skippy long stockings. How's that for a name? In today's wood memorial. So I'll talk to him about those horses too. But it's an interesting way to look at it. If most of us were thinking that the Florida Derby, at least last weekend, because that was the way I phrased the question. If we were thinking that the Florida Derby was the strongest prep race, and why the barrio dominated the horses that were in the strongest and deepest prep race, well, he has to be, if not the strongest among the strongest contenders coming to Louisville. And we know the Florida Derby in the success that it has had in producing Kentucky Derby winners. So it's really not a stretch. It's kind of a captain obvious type of statement. But there are plenty of people that are not buying Still don't believe in saffy Joseph junior. Still don't believe in this horse. We won't know for another 28 days if, indeed, why the barrio, assuming that all things stay on track because let's face it. The next 28 days for the connections of these Derby horses are going to be nerve wracking. Many trainers over the years. Many owners over the years have told us that every time that phone rings your heart leaps just a little bit. Just because you don't know if you're an owner over the next 28 days and you have a Derby horse. Or an oaks horse. And you see your phone ring, and you see your trainer's name pop up. You almost don't want to answer it. Could be good news? It could be a setback, it could be him telling you or her telling you that that horse is off the Derby trail. So close, and it is so difficult. I say this all the time. So difficult to get a horse to the starting gate. In a maiden race, in their first career start, forget about making it all the way to The Kentucky Derby. Of the thousands of foals that were born three years ago, only 20 will have the opportunity to run for the roses. It is extremely difficult. It's like winning the lottery just to be in the starting gate. And those connections are now so close. They can taste it. And you're going to hear a fantastic story. Coming up at 9 o'clock eastern. Very emotional story surrounding bluegrass stakes long shot fenwick. I had the chance to visit with owner Jeremiah rudan and trainer, Kevin McCarthy. They sat down with me together. And their story is fantastic. Their bond, their friendship, the way that they have been able to overcome their own personal tragedies, to be here on the big stage in a grade one with a horse like fenwick. You're going to love this story. That comes up at 9 eastern. You will not want to miss that interview. Today's poll question, kind of along the same lines of what I did last week, where I asked you which of the three races you thought was the deepest field, going to do it slightly differently this week. If you were only able to watch one of these races today, which one are you choosing? The wood memorial, the bluegrass, or the Santa need a Derby. You can only watch one. If that was the case, and you were only able to watch one of those races today, which one are you choosing? The wood, the bluegrass or the Santa Anita Derby, you can go to our Twitter feed at HR N you can go to our Facebook page. Horse racing radio network on Facebook to let me know your thoughts and I will pass along those results later in the program. The bluegrass stakes has produced 23 Kentucky Derby winners. Second only to the Florida Derby. The wood memorial has produced 20. That's not too shabby either. But it has been 15 years. Since street cents came through the bluegrass and won The Kentucky Derby. It has been 19 years, nearly two decades. Since funny side went on to win the Derby after his runner up effort in the wood. Which of those droughts appears most.

"That he wasn't going to get that kind of rosy trip again, but let's take a listen back to Pete's call of the $1 million grade one Florida Derby. And there are Florida Derby. Excellent beginning for classic causeway from down toward the inside. Simplification was way away in good shape today and he's up to challenge from second. Papa cap gets away in third wider on the first turn as white of barrio and race favorite charger drops in mid flight. He's about four lengths behind that it's own captain racing ahead of Clapton and king of truth. Cajun's magic is third last steal sunshine is second last and 11th and last is strike hard as they chase the Tampa Bay Derby winner classic causeway to the backstroke run. Classic causeway relaxed up front he leads to half the leg. Simplification will not let him get four second three wide popping cap third. We say this has charge at fourth at the rail. He's racing together with the great white of Oreo, a gap of another two to Clapton who's outside of old captain, and it's a length and a half to Cajun's magic. King of truth and steel sunshine race together about ten lengths off the pace and still at the back is strike hard. The opening quarter was 23 and three the half mile was 47 and one half a mile ago in the 2022 kerlin Florida Derby. We have a new leader simplification is powered past classic causeway who backpedals papa kath looms a threat on the outside. What a Mario takes third up to fourth is charging, dropping back his classic causeway then clapped in an oak captain as they run to the top of the stretch up front papa cap doing battle with simplification. Three wide white of Oreo charges getting ready to launch his Vinny's three legs off the lead but gaining ground with a quarter of a mile left to go. Now off the top of the stretch simplification bracing for an oncoming white of orio papa cap is very game between horses and charge it swings into action on the far outside. There's an 8th of a mile to go. White arborio takes over from simplification, charge it with the late say down the center 16th to run white of Oreo almost home. Charge it ships ground light of Oreo still there and white a barrio wins the Florida Derby for sappy Joseph junior from charging in second and simplification third papa cap ran fourth. The time for the race a minute 50 and three. So why do barrio victorious here? His fourth win from just 5 starts for trainer safi Joseph junior and.

"Hold on. Laura king and I were talking about this on Twitter the other day. I was like, yeah, just change that. Stop, stop, change it to just being stolen numbers. What's the point of why does it need to be just a what, a number for the sake of being a number? No, let it mean something. Help us out here. Okay? Let it actually be the number. The Americans have the right idea. You're very considered the right. We can go completely used to that. We can figure out the way ourselves. We don't need it based on the weight that the horse is carrying. Exactly. We'll look up the weight just let us know where they are in the stalls, okay? That's really important. Train the clock is in here for trainer safi Joseph junior as well. Apparently reports are saying that he's quite a tricky horse to train, Chad summers was mentioning that to me. I've never been on sight to seem trained, so I obviously didn't know as much aside from just watching him raise where he's just a very, very fast horse now he can read though, he can kind of just sit off it, which is the kind of thing that you love for a sprinter and not need the leap kind of type. And look, he has been up against the best of the best sprinters in the U.S., was able to turn, you know, was able to best Jackie's warrior, Jackie's warrior of course, very, very strong sprint who was able to come back to an HL and jerkins, best thing life is good, might I add? So drain the clock to me looks very, very interesting..

Welcome back to trainer talk presented by facing tipton on the horse racing radio network, Mike penna Jude feld visiting with trainer safi Joseph from Barr number 7 on the backside of Gulfstream park. It is a first on a couple of levels here on this trainer talk, our first visit with a trainer born in Barbados and our first ever broadcast coming to you from the actual office in the barn area of that particular trainer and it's been a great visit with safi Joseph so far. We're looking forward to the second half of the program. Do want to remind you that if you missed any portion of this interview or any of our trainer talk shows, simply go to radio dot net, you can download a podcast of each and every show right there on our website and we'd encourage people to do so because there have been some amazing programs and this one ranks right up there, JT. Yeah, it's been a lot of fun, but we've done some great trainer talks lately. And most of you are a jolly last week. Last week, we were jolly was awesome. If you have a chance to download that while you're listening to it while you're running or driving around or whatever. It's worth listening to is really cool. Safi, how many of the American Hall of Famers? Guys like Leroy jolly or Nick zito or a future Hall of Famer like a Todd pletcher or even a Bill Mott. How many of those individuals have you had a chance to kind of get to know? I actually haven't really met many of them. I see them around, but I don't know any of them personally. Or anything like that. When you were growing up, I know we talked in the first half of the program about your family being such a tight knit group and handling the family business of being involved in the sport together. But were there other trainers that you looked up to, whether they were in America or in Barbados that maybe you said, hey, someday I'd like to like to be like that. Oh, like growing up as a little boy in Barbara's and watching the Derby in America. You always look up at that time. It was like, Bob Baffert. Nick zeta and Lucas, there were the three stars. When I was like 9 and ten and 95, 96, there were every year to seem like they were always on the triple cultural. And then I was like, oh, they're like 16 and 17, 18, 19, I used to come up with a Gulfstream and you would obviously tell Fletcher and operation he runs his second and none. Yeah. How about when you saddle a horse, you get in the starting gate with those guys. And you're in the paddock with them. And what's that like for you? Well, if I have a better horse than a race, I feel good. It's great when you meet them, right? Correct. Sometimes it can be a little shocking. I walked into Pomona fair in California one day and Charlie whittingham Las barrera and Eddie Gregson are all sitting on a bench in the paddock and I thought, I thought this was Pomona. I'm not Belmont park, you know? I was like, craziness, but yeah, it's tough. It's tough when you have to go up against those guys usually you're loaded for bear. When you first came here, I started training in the states. Did you automatically feel like you belonged? Well, any new transition is any time you go somewhere new, there's always that sort of uncertainty that happens. So when you run your first words, you never know what to expect. And then once you started first year, we got off to a really good start and then after that, everything came easy. You felt more secure. And yes, we know we could do it. Now we could compete as nothing different. But there's always uncertainty until you do something in life. And then you realize we were just as good as any or I think when we first came, we came from Barbara. Most people were like, yeah, Barbados. You should be surfing, not trying to horses. And then believe it or not, you would see some people, they wouldn't be as friendly or thinking as far as I don't think they really respected your ability. And then over a couple of years, the same people that were actually respect here because they see what you're doing. They say that you could train a race or so you can take care of a horse. It's kind of funny as you're traveling around. People don't understand, I think that the caliber of racing at Barbados is very, very good despite the fact that the persons are not all that great. But I mean Barbados has had some great trainers that Bill Marshall was like he was like the greatest trainer of all time in Barbados. Is that correct? Yeah, he was probably been in a moisturizer with us. Yeah, and there's great horsemen there in people that take the game very, very seriously, despite the fact that nobody's ever going to get rich racing horses in Barbados, but it's not because the quality of horsemanship is bad because it's very, very good there. Yeah, I think the quality of horsemanship is pretty good from all levels of grooms the trainers. Even produce a lot of good writers too. But it's easier for the writers to get into Canada than it is to get their marker. Safi Joseph joining us on trainer talk presented by phasic tipton on the horse racing radio network. When you came here to train, that wasn't your first trip to America though, right?.

"But if you're buying horses in that range, in the mid to lower end kind of thing, you've got to find that the athlete instead of the page. Because like you said, you'll never be able to buy the fancy pedigrees. And if you do, if you can't afford one of those, usually they've got one leg pointing towards Barbados already. It's a tough racket. Yeah, and nobody's right a 100% of the time in this game. So when you go to a sale, you're looking for the athlete. You think you have them. It doesn't always pan out when you get them to the racetrack, right? No, of course not. This is the only game that you're probably right. What, 15 to 20% of the time and considered a genius. That's a good percentage, right? How important are percentages for a trainer today? Well, I think in America is huge. For everyone that everyone handicappers and even the public percentage yet to have a good percentage, you have to, it's very important. People that look up percentage and they don't even care if you claim a horse for 20,000 and drop them at 62 50 and your percentage is high. They'll notice that more than if you actually claim the horse or say 62 50 and you run it in a second and a third in a state percentages. I think that's key in America to get attention. You know, there's no question about it. That's the first place people look when they go to hire a trainer. They go to the trainer standings and the first 5 or 6 guys are who they go to. Everybody else is chopped liver even if you're doing a great job with a small stable people don't pay attention. Visiting with trainer safi Joseph here on trainer talk presented by phasic tipton on the horse racing radio network coming to you from barn 7. At Gulfstream park, which is where you can find safi Joseph junior and his father, safi Joseph senior and they are a great partnership and they're really going well right now here at Gulfstream park, safi trained more than 70 winners here in the United States now. We mentioned the other winners that you had in Barbados. Tell me about your first horse that you ever got involved with when you first started training. Well, the first first we ever got involved was a horse named wacom but she was a Philly. I should be before I took out my license. I was working together this guy was trying to hate and Nichols. I was working under him. And she was actually a good Philly. She did what she did for us too. Yes, she earned a good amount of money, too. She won a couple of locally bred races going to mile and a quarter. And she won it twice to tanglewood. It's on goal company. When you go to your website, you have your bio listed there, and you have a quote in your bio. And I'm going to read it to you. It says, it's not what you do, but how you do it. What's that mean? I think anything you do in life is where do you put into it? You know what I mean? If you put what do you put into it, is where you're going to get out to get out of it. If you put a lot into it and you're constructive thinking and you put your heart and do it constructively, you're going to get the results. So what's the key to being a successful trainer then? The key is having good.

"And the team, handicapping all the big races coming up this weekend. And there are plenty of good ones still to come including that Sam F Davis down at Tampa Bay downs and you heard earlier from trainer safi Joseph junior talking about make it big and you just heard a short time ago from Patrick O'Keefe, the owner of classic causeway, who was the likely favorite in that race. That's a pretty solid field. And we talked last week about the holy bull stakes being maybe the strongest prep race that we've seen to date and every year it seems like when we have a race like the holy bowl or at some point every season, we're talking about it being the strongest prep. Time will tell if it was. But why do barrio? Looked really good winning that race. And safi looked back on that effort. So that will be up as a podcast later too. If you are just joining me, by the way, well guess what? You missed Jessica peifer, who was with me in the first part of the program, you missed Mitchell merle, who was here talking about his milestone win number 1000, I mentioned safi, and ago, Steve asimus. And so you can go back and listen to all of that on our podcast when you get a few minutes here. Really excited about this third hour in Brad Cox kicking things off to have a person like Brad take time and answer your questions is pretty cool. Kurt Becker stroll through racing history coming up at ten 25 and I asked they answer with Daryl Romans Tim wilkin at the end of the program ten 35 eastern segment now presented, by the way, by our Friends at the university of Louisville equine industry program in the college of business. So they'll be bringing you that all week long and they'll be sponsoring the podcast of this equine forum show all year long. So really looking forward to their involvement on that particular segment and on the podcast of this show. A couple of the things that I'm going to bring up with Dale. We'll talk about it with him. We'll talk about the surprises at this year's eclipse awards. And I don't know if there were many. I think most of the favorites that we expected.

"19 seconds until the run for the roses on Saturday May 7th beneath those fabled twin spires. I'm going to have plenty of Derby conversation coming up this morning for those of you who, of course, have already come down with a little touch of Derby fever. But I want to start with the eclipse awards. At the top of our three this morning, that's 10 o'clock eastern. You are going to have the opportunity to call into the show and ask two time eclipse award winning trainer Brad Cox, your questions when he joins us on this week's edition of you be the host. Brad received his second consecutive outstanding trainer title this past Thursday night. And it wasn't even close. Tomorrow is Super Bowl Sunday. And unless you're a fan of one of the teams playing in the game, you're just hoping that it's not a blowout. So at least it's a good game to watch. Of course you're hoping you win your Super Bowl squares pool, too. While the voting for Brad Cox was a blowout. He received 189 first place votes. The next closest was Steve asmussen, with 33. I think that qualifies as a blowout. And if you recall, on January 8th, the January 8th edition of this show. My poll question asked you which trainer should be champion trainer of 2021. I gave you three choices. Brad Cox, Steve asim, and Todd Fletcher. I also said I thought this category would be closer than it appeared. It wasn't close. It wasn't close in the voting that morning, and it wasn't close in the voting on Thursday. I was wrong. I really thought Steve asim and even Todd pletcher. Had some credentials. But I suppose, when you train both, the horse of the year, and the champion three year old male in the same season. You deserve to be champion trainer, and Brad Cox certainly did. I voted for Brad Cox. But I thought that the voting would be a bit closer. I didn't think the margin would be quite as big. And by the way, the aforementioned Hall of Famer Steve asson, runner up in that voting is also going to be with me here this morning at 9 40 eastern. I wasn't surprised to see essential quality, when the three year old male eclipsed water as a matter of fact, I thought he probably would, but I told you a few weeks ago, my vote went to life is good. I was one of 18 voters who shared that opinion. And I really thought a snowball had a better chance of surviving hell than Medina Spirit did to win the eclipse award. And I think that's disappointing. Not because Medina Spirit wasn't deserving. I think he was very deserving, as a matter of fact, I put him above essential quality in my votes. I went life is good, Medina Spirit, essential quality. But it's because voters were penalizing Medina Spirit. And I knew they would penalizing him for the situation surrounding his trainer Bob Baffert. And I don't think that's fair. I don't think that's fair to the horse. Who showed up and was all heart every time he ran and say what you want about what happened in The Kentucky Derby? Doctor Mary sculley appeared on this very program, the week after. And said that that was not a performance enhancing substance. It did not cause Medina Spirit to run faster. The betamethasone. Medina Spirit won The Kentucky Derby on his own. Regardless of what you think of that situation. Doctor Mary sculley, a leading expert said that that did not cause Medina Spirit to run faster. And by the way, for all of you who thought Medina spirits death was the final nail in the coffin for bob effort and were immediately calling for him to be banned from racing. The news came out yesterday that the necropsy performed a Medina Spirit, showed no definitive cause of death. Nothing nefarious was found in his system. When the news about his death was first reported, I told you that I would be shocked. If there was something found. Considering the fact that all of bob's horses had been under extreme scrutiny. Since The Kentucky Derby, they have undergone extensive testing. And if something were to be found, well, then I would agree with you, then that's it. It's the nail in the coffin. But I told you, as soon as the news broke on the same show. That I was going to be shocked if something was found. And I'm not surprised that nothing was. So can we please just take a breath and stop with the bashing until due process has taken its course. Tim wilkin who's going to join us later with devil Romans on I asked they answer the final segment of the program at ten 30 eastern, has said it multiple times during that segment. That it seems as if bob is being tried in the court of social media. And that's skewing a lot of people's opinions. That was just one of the topics that came up this week. It was also an historic night at the eclipse awards for apprentice jockey, Jessica piffer, who joined rosemary home oyster. I can say that. Rosemary, home Meister junior, and Emma Jane Wilson as the only female writers to take home the eclipse award for top apprentice. It was pretty cool. You're going to hear from Jessica coming up in just a few minutes at 8 15 eastern. She's up early doing her thing on the West Coast. So it's going to be 5 15 California time. She's going to be here in just a few minutes. Also a pretty good day. For jockey Mitchell merle, last Sunday at the fairground since we're talking about jockeys. Mitchell will call him mister 1000 is going to be here at 9 o'clock eastern. He reached that milestone. In the 6th race of the day, last Sunday, aboard yin Yang. Trained by who else. You guessed it, Brad Cox. It's always fun to catch up with Mitchell the native of mobile Alabama should be a fun conversation at 9 eastern. Last Saturday trainer safi Joseph junior put yet another three year old on the Derby trail. When white a barrio scored in the holy bull stakes at Gulfstream, sappy also has undefeated springboard mile winter, make it big in today's Sam F Davis at Tampa Bay downs, make it big, currently sits in 7th place on the Derby points list. And saf is going to.

And I'm really into Graham motions or rika. I thought last time out versus boys ran well in New York, I thought they figured it out. The horse wants a turf sprint. I think it's gonna be really, really competitive here. Great sign that won Hernandez does not go to Northern California to run in the el Camino real for a pricey horse that he had an opportunity to. I don't think this is an amazing field. I think arika is in a really good shape to score to decent price. All right, so nice price there and I like your comment. It's not an amazing field. I think we can all agree with that. It's definitely not an amazing field for a grade three effort, the suite life at Santa Anita. I'm going to go to Tampa Bay downs and race number 8 the sun coast. No, I'm not going to put number two nest as my best bet of the weekend. My best bet is going to be exact as in the race because I'm going to try to beat the second and third choices on the morning line. I don't love number three. A little love and luck who's one dirt start was just fair at best. I don't love number 7 hot penny who's coming off a fourth place finish in the gas barilla. I thought both of the Phillies who were coming off maiden scores in their debuts ran very well and have every right to be even better second time out. Those are number 6 peaceful surprise at ten to one. Number 8 princess elin at 12 to one. I don't know if they're good enough to beat nest yet, but I think they're definitely good enough to be second at decent prices. So I am going to hammer a couple of exact in the suncoast two 6 and two 8 hoping to get a good mutual if one of those bigger prices runs under the big favorite nest in the sun coast stakes. All right, Dave, all 12 races in the books seems like we're done for the weekend, but we're not done for the weekend. As there's another huge addition of the equine form presented by twin spires coming up tomorrow morning. And to be honest, I don't know how Mike Pence is gonna fit all of this in on tomorrow's show 8 to 11 a.m. Eastern Time. First of all, two time eclipse award winning trainer Brad Cox takes your phone calls in this week's edition of you be the host, champion apprentice jockey, Jessica pyfer looks back on her award winning season. Hall of Fame trainer Steve asimus and talks about echo Zulu who's back in training, as well as super stock and his top Derby hopefuls. Trainer safi Joseph junior discusses the holy bull winner white a barrio, as well as springboard mile winner, make it big. Kentucky west racing owner Patrick O'Keefe looks ahead to classic causeway in tomorrow's Sam F Davis. That's not all. Jockey Mitchell murrell talks about his milestone 1000th career win plus another edition of I asked the answer with trainer Dale Romans and turf writer Tim wilkin, Kurt Becker stroll through racing history presented by lane's end and keenland and calling all three year olds presented by spendthrift. I have no idea how Mike Pence is going to fit all of this in in just a three hour span. It is going to be a fantastic addition of the equine form presented by twin spires tomorrow morning 8 to 11 a.m. Eastern Time. And I know you're a huge fan of that you be the.

And of course, tune into America's day at the races both tomorrow and Sunday two 30 to 5 30 Eastern Time on FS two. All right, Dave, they've got two stakes on the Gulf Stream card tomorrow. They were off the turf at Gulfstream today, hopefully they'll be back on the turf tomorrow because both of these stakes are scheduled for the turf. It says it right in their names. And we'll start with race number four. The sunshine turf stakes. This is a race that I believe at one point was called the sunshine millions turf, but the millions have gone away. And now it's a $75,000 purse for the four year old for the Florida bread four year olds and up, going a mile and an 8th on the grass. We've got a field of 7 and wait a minute. Didn't we just see sham rocket run last week trying the main track at Gulfstream in the sunshine classic? In fact, we did. He got a perfect trip that day to get up and win, and he's coming back 6 days rest for Todd, something that I don't recall ever seen for Todd Fletcher. He is the 7 to 5 favorite getting back to his preferred surface. Yeah, I like shamrock last week because I thought it was a really, really soft field and he just towered over that group. This is the first time since 2017 that Todd is bringing a horse back in 7 days or less. And I think this is a really, really beatable favorite. In fact, I love the idea of betting on this race and maybe shamrock gets better and maybe shamrock it's gonna win the race and if shamrock does, I'm going to lose because there are so many things here that I think point to I don't know about that. I think there's I think there's some value playing against shamrock. Going to be the chalk has the biggest figures in the race, but ran just a week ago, like you said, got the perfect trip, the fake in that race was very, very low and I don't think this is the distance shamrock wants. This is a horse that wins stakes races at a mile and a half. A mile and a quarter, we're going a mile in an 8th here and I think the race is too short on the turf for shamrock. So the question is, how do you try to beat shamrock and I'm going to play a bunch of them being Frank about it. The one I like best is max KO for safi Joseph and Ira Ortiz and I read as a piece of the equation these two hooked up for a win at Kentucky downs back in September. Bottom line is I think max KO is going to be in front on a very soft pace and I think it's going to be able to kick on and win. That being said, I'm using lure him in coming from California. First time out since November I'm a little bit interested in what that's going to look like moving from Southern California to Gulfstream, but had a good trip at Gulfstream park as one at Gulfstream park before and I'm the use kachina on the rail for Mike maker to stretching out. But max KO on top. I agree with number 6 max KO, and I rat Ortiz is a big factor in that decision. Last time he rode max KO was the last time max KO got the job done. He loves it there at Gulfstream. By interesting to note, this is actually the first day back for irad Ortiz after that. Incident, the starting gate that you and I were on for a few weeks ago originally looked like he may have a broken kneecap and we would be out for a month or so. You got a second opinion, an opinion he liked better, apparently, and they said, no, it wasn't. It wasn't a fracture. It was just a knee contusion, which, as far as I'm concerned, sounds like a bad bruise. And he's back riding this weekend, sparingly tomorrow and Sunday before he really gets back into the swing of things next week leading up to the Pegasus. But max KO for everything that you said, I think that this race is his to win or lose, and to be perfectly honest. I wish we could get fixed odds wagering. Because if you're going to tell me we get 7 to two on max KO and shamrock at a 7 to 5, I am running to get to the window. Max KO for both Dave and myself in the sunshine turf race four tomorrow at Gulfstream park. Jump all the way forward to the tenth race on the card. This is the sunshine filly in merit turf. Also a $75,000 purse also a race that I think at one point was part of the sunshine millions. These are Phillies and marriage that are Florida breads going one mile on the lawn field of 7 here, Dave, and it marks the return of number 7 sugar fix. She has done very, very well over the last year or so for trainer safi Joseph junior and last time out, one of the claiming crown races right there at Gulfstream. Yes, second off a layoff and coming off arguably her best career race. So you're certainly expecting sugar fix to run well in here. I think there are a lot of ways you can go. I thought the morning lines were going to be a little bit higher on like Kelsey's cross. I think Kelsey's cross who was in that race against sweet Melania last time and his run against summer in Saratoga. I think this is an easier field, but I need a decent price to bet on Kelsey's cross who quite frankly hasn't won recently just one win last year, one win in 8 starts and you have to go back quite a bit further to find another victory out there. I think Kelsey's cross can win, but I'm hoping to get a better price. My pick is sister tool on the cutback for Graham motion and Louis syz, ran last time out in a grade three event at woodbine on synthetic surface. And I think is better on turf. I think has some races that fit very nicely with this group. I like the layoff. And I think it's a competitive race, but I like Cicero tool marginally the best. Okay, so Cicero tool for Dave, I went to the favorite number 7 sugar fix. I don't have any real good reasons for liking this favorite. I just think that she is the most consistent of anyone in this field. I don't think she lays over this field. It worries me that she's coming off a big win last time out. And I certainly don't love 8 to 5. I think she's the most likely winner in the race. I will not be betting one dime on her tomorrow. So while I'm in a number 7 sugar fix on top Dave, I can unequivocally tell you, I am rooting for you with number two, sister O'Toole. I will not have any action in this race. It's just not my kind of field. The sunshine filling in mere turf race ten tomorrow on the card at Gulfstream park. 12 Saturday races in the books. We actually have one Sunday stake to look at. And it's from the big way. It is the $100,000 busana stakes aqueduct myelin and 8th on the main track. These are three year old Phillies and a field of 6 going to post and.

"The nyra bets best bet. Is the Nairobi's best bet. All right, Dave, take it away. The dawn vowel Prado Cal cup at Santa Anita the sprint race number 9 on Saturday. I just think brickyard ride towers over this field. You mentioned brickyard ride is not one you like to rely on, not consistent enough. I think against this class of horses, state bred $150,000 stake sources, that's exactly what brickyard ride does and does well and does well pretty consistently. Bottom line, this is not a great one or a great two stakes race. Brickyard might not be a great one or a great tour, or even a grade three stakes source. But against this caliber field, I think brickyard ride is better. And I think brickyard ride will win. I like your thinking, my man. Even though I'm trying to beat brickyard ride, it may have simply be as one of those 50% type of things. Either brake yard ride is going to show up or he doesn't. And if he does, it's Katie bar the door. I like the way you're going with that. I'm going to go to the sunshine classic tomorrow at Gulfstream park. I'm going to try to beat the heavy favorite sham rocket with number one sir Ali. I loved what I saw from him, stretching out to the one turn mile first time for new trainer safi Joseph junior last time out. He's come back to work fast since that race and being by quality road. I don't know why he can't go even further than a mile. He's got the advantage of the inside post with a very short run to that first turn going a mile in an 8th at Gulfstream four to one on the morning line, sir Ali, my best bet in the sunshine classic race 6 tomorrow at Gulfstream park. Last few minutes of the program, my friend, of course, tomorrow, another huge morning here on the network. It's the equine form presented by twin spires. And David, it's the second rendition of UB the host. I know you got to listen to last week with Mike Smith as the inaugural U be the host, what can fans look forward to with Ramon Dominguez tomorrow? They can look forward to anything they want. That's what makes the segment so fun. You can call up or you can send a message via social media and you can get the response of a Hall of Famer. It might be a favorite memory you had meeting them. It might be asking them about a favorite horse or a favorite track. It's really an open ended free for all of whatever you want it to be. So if you've always wondered, what would it be like to talk to a Hall of Fame jockey? Did they like riding this style better or that style? You can get any question you might want answered. I thought Mike Smith was really refreshing to listen to very willing to answer any sort of question and I'm certain Ramon Dominguez will be the same. Was there anything you learned from listening to Mike Smith last week? They say, wow, I never would have thought that. Well, I didn't realize that.

"Advantage Johnny V he's going to get a leg up and Laura Lopes from Gulfstream's leading trainer, safi Joseph junior, she's ten to one on the morning line. And historically speaking, a solid upset candidate because those are the only trends that really fit with the sugar swirl. The Harlan's holiday was inaugurated in 2011 and Hall of Fame trainer Todd Fletcher has two wins in the race, which is one more than any other trainer. He can pat his record when he sends out 8 to 5 morning line favorite fearless later today, Jackie's Javier castellano and Louis psys have each one three runnings of the Harlan's holiday. So you have to take a look at them. Say, is actually in search of a third consecutive victory. And he rides the favorite for pleasure. Good team there. Castellano last won this race four years ago would fear the cowboy. And at 8 to one on the morning line, he's going to be hoping that I of a Jedi can instill some fear into today's competition. The historical verdict? Well, watch out for a fearless eye of a Jedi exacta in today's Harlan's holiday. And finally, no jockey or trainer. Has won more runnings of the great two Fort Lauderdale. Then Hall of Famers Jerry Bailey and Bill Matt respectively. Neither of which, by the way, is going to be participating in this year's race. History doesn't really help us quite as much with this one as it did with the others. But I did find a couple of tidbits which might help narrow things down for you. Among the 11 trainers who are saddling horses in this year's renewal. Only three. Have ever won it previously. And no. Amador Sanchez is not one of them. Chad Brown might maker and Barkley tag have all settled one winner apiece, which if you look at it from that perspective, it narrows the field down for you. Narrows it down to doswell, limper, media blitz analyze it, order in law and a tone. Got it down to 6. So it makes sense that the winner is going to be among those 6 horses I just mentioned. But if you're still not convinced, and maybe you want a little more help from history,.

"Like this whole weekend I mean it's open and weekend so everyone just wanted to run and their full fields and their competitors feels. Yeah, those are tough races. When you think about the claiming crown and I always refer to it and we have for years, the breeders cup for the blue collar working horses of the sport. What does it mean for the connections of these horses to compete for this kind of money? I mean, I think people really look forward to it has become a daily, especially reclaim a lot of horses and we have a lot of owners that look forward to it. They're always trying to find that came in from horses as a whole person dream. And their aspect is their burrito scope for the strength for the payment owners and the horses. It's been a great day. It successfully produces good handle and it produces competitive breezes. You look at a racist today. It's not easy to make these single horses in any of these races today. You touched earlier, safiya about the team. And how important it is for the team to work together and develop together and grow in the way that you've been able to do it in the past few years. And it's been a big part of your success. Edgar zayas is part of your team. You've brought him into the fold. He has become kind of your John Velazquez, if you will, if you were Todd pletcher, he's been your go to guy. Why is he such a good fit? Let me write a great year round where we run most of our horses. So he comes over basically every weekend. He works a lot of our horses for us. So he has a feeling we get into a good rhythm and it's been working on hopefully he can keep continuing and we're not going to fix what's not broken. So long may continue fingers crossed. Yeah, visiting with trainer safi Joseph junior here on the horse racing radio network, looking ahead to the rest of the championship meet staff. I know you said the numbers are big. They certainly are today. You're going to make a run at that leading trainer title, at least you hope you are. Tell me about some of the horses that folks can look forward to from the barn that could have an impact later in the meat. We run a nice two year old tomorrow one first. I'm always named as AP secret. Kind of the trends like he's our best to really one first time out more in work like fashion, hope and tomorrow, a human he can make that jump forward and of course in the next level. And as you're thinking, as you're thinking of big races of tomorrow's going to be his judgment call to see if you can step it up a notch. That's one thing that's so cool about this championship meet is you start to find out if you belong. If you're a contender or a pretender looking ahead to next year's classics. No, most definitely. All these allowance racism if you win any of these allowance racism the next step basically you're going to stick So I'm going to some of the ones where you just come up just as some of the other prep. So if you're fortunate enough to win one of them, you're definitely going to give a horse and tray going long. I'm looking at those entries tomorrow 13 horses, entered on the program tomorrow. You certainly do have the numbers, my friend. Hopefully we can pick up some weathers, get some momentum. I think if we could keep pretty close to thoughts of December last year, he got away from us in December. Because they're pretty close, we're going to give them a rental money. But overall, we just happy to be in this position. Thankful to have the arms we do. And we just want to win every race that we run. Obviously, we lose a lot more than we ran, but we just keep moving forward. I try to do our best and keep winning. Is dad here helping you now or is he back home in Barbados? No, he's there. I'm at palmetto this morning. All right. Well, safi Joseph junior, his dad is a major part of that team and his success and staff. I wish you guys all the best this upcoming me. Good luck with the claiming crown today and go in some races, my friend. Thank you very much, Mike. We're going to try. All right. They call him Baba back home in Barbados and Baba is going to be looking to see if he can dethrone one of the greatest of all time and Todd Fletcher. We'll see how this plays out. You heard him say, just going to try and keep Todd close into here in December and try to let him get too far away and have to play catch up interesting the way that trainers look at those things. Isn't it really interesting? And Dale Romans pointed out what we were having that conversation a couple of weeks ago. We were talking about safi. He said, you know, for him, the money titles and the big races have become more important. Dale said, when he was a young trainer, he always focused on the training titles. And he always, they meant they still mean a lot to them. But it was a goal of his early on. It's not so much a goal anymore, trying to be leading trainer. But winning the big races in the big money events has become a goal. And I think that just comes with experience..

Welcome back Mike Penn baron in the backstretch with you on this Saturday morning. Pete Ella with the call of last year's davana Dale and totalist shape getting the victory it was part of a huge 2020 season for trainer safi Joseph junior he has continued that momentum throughout 2021 and is now poised to take a shot at the leading trainer title at the upcoming championship meet to do so. He will have to get past perennial leading trainer Todd pletcher who goes in search of a 19th championship title, but sappy hoping to dethrone him. But he's hoping to get past the claiming crown today. He has several horses entered and he's with me now. Here on the horse racing radio network, this interview presented by our friends at jellyfish water. Saf, good morning. Good morning, Mike, thanks for having me on. I was talking earlier in the program about trying to get past Todd pletcher. And some people would say, wait a minute now. That's blasphemy. Safi Joseph junior leading trainer at the championship meet. That's pletcher's meet. You admitted that, but you also didn't hand him to trophy. You said, hey, I think we can give him a run for his money. No, most definitely. This has been his meat for many years from the time I grew up. I've been a fan of it. And last year we got with an 8. I think this year we have more numbers, which always helps you win titles. We're going to give it and try to go after it. It's not going to be easy, obviously. You show these time it comes out of the champion and hopefully, if we don't beat them this year, we'll give them a run for the money and hopefully in the near future we will. We have a segment at the end of the program that's called I ask they answer and Dale Romans and turf writer. Tim wilkin joined me to debate various topics for about 25 minutes or so. And a couple of weeks ago, I posed the question to them. And I said, listen, is it really conceivable that safi Joseph junior could overtake Todd platform and be the leading trainer? And Dale said, you know what? He might win more races than Todd, but Todd's going to walk away with the money title. He's going to win the big races. Yeah, that's why I obviously don't have higher quality horses than at the moment. But our quality is getting up there also. So we're not we don't have the quality he has yet. But we're getting there and our goal is to continue to build here and we have to be trained for great owners and we're taking that more and more on as each basically to weaken our own together eventually. We're not there yet, but we're trending in the right direction. Scott 20 years experience on us with around 34, then he's 54. So I like where our progress will be made and I think we're trending in the right direction. Each year, safi, you have continued to build and you're right, the arrow is pointing up and it has been for several years now. What's been your approach to getting better quality horses and winning better races? How have you been able to do it? Try to get better every day to try to make the team earn this dependent on your team as you kind of or that's the reality of it. There's no horse racing for a reason you need the horses and the owners provide the horses. After that, you have to do your job, but you have to hire good people around you to work with you and just try to make everyone better that you compete against yourself and if you can improve every day yourself and you can improve someone that's on your team every day, the whole team is going to become a unit. For the betterment of the horse. And that's what we try to do with this. Everyone tried to improve rekindling that one. Just keep working hard. Those words sound good, saf, but how does trainer go about acquiring better horses and developing relationships with owners who have the better horses? What's the key? The key is running a simple. You got to run when you win, everyone loves you. You don't want to go wild they forget you and they throw you under the bus very quickly. So that's the reality. When you win everyone, everyone wants you to win. And that's what you have to do. But overall, you got to communicate with your owners. You've got to talk to them and give them honest feedback. The horse is not good or can't compete, you gotta let them know. Sometimes it's a true part, but the truth is only you get better in life and that's where you go to face reality with horses. This is not good enough when you need to drop in class. You got to give the honor the feedback and let them decide if they're going to let you drop the orders a lot. And thankfully we have honors our real estate to trust our opinion and just judgment and it's worth it. You know, you start off with a bang because you come out in the claiming crowd today. And I think you have a total of 8 horses entered on the program today, am I right? Yeah, we got 8 runners today, 7 and a claim is I don't want to in a normal race. Yeah, yeah. Walk me through the horses in the claiming crowd. I'll mention the name you can kind of walk through and tell me about the horses and why you think they're a good fit. I'll start with the 5th race face.

"Joel Rosario is if I was a trainer and I had to have a go to win. I had to have a win. I had to have, I think I put him on horse right now, just the way he's riding. He's just so three weeks ago. Three weeks ago. All of a sudden, a rad's been into slump for three weeks, right? Yeah, you see what I mean about polls? That's what that's media people do, Dale. I'm gonna start a poll about how many Christmas presents Dale Romans is gonna buy this year. Right, there's gonna be a hell of a lot, a lot more to receive. But in flabby and prop. I mean, I think that, you know, he's deserves to be on the list, which they'll hate, but you know he's he's a guy that, you know, a lot of people really don't know that much about. He's only been riding here in the U.S. on a regular basis since 15. And, you know, he's he's he's become a go to writer and out west. He's got a bunch of writing titles that delmar, but he's not in the household name if you will. Category like maybe Joelle and my old friend, I read, and Jose artis, Louis sias, but, you know, yeah, I think that if you're going to have to have these polls, which Dale hates, I guess they did get it right. All right. Final topic for today, again, you can listen to I asked, they answer every single weekend here, ten 30 eastern is when we kick it off on the equine form. If you miss them, head back to our website and check out the podcast of each of these segments. They have been really informative. All right, final segment and it involves Gulfstream's championship meet, which begins on Friday. Trainer safi Joseph junior comes into the meat with a ton of momentum having just captured the fall meat title and the spring summer meat title before that. Saffy finished 8 wins behind Hall of Famer Todd pletcher at last year's championship meet, of course, Fletcher recorded his 18th title for the championship meet last year. He's been unstoppable. Joseph was quoted in an article this week, guys, is saying the championship meet is Todd's meat. Last year we were pretty close, but we didn't have as many horses as we have this year. I think we can give him a run for his money. What are the chances safi Joseph junior walks away with the championship meat training title this year? He's got a solid chance he wins a lot of races, but I will say one thing, Todd pledge to walk away with the money title. So it'll be about show me the money. I don't think he was concerned about the number of wins anymore. So he just went in the big ones. He went all the big ones down there. He's powerhouse getting stronger all the time. Yeah, I mean, Todd is mister Gulfstream, just like he's mister Saratoga. You know, he wins all those meat titles. It was almost shocking to some people a couple of years ago when she had Brown started is running back Tod off. Can saffy Joseph do it? Yeah, why not? I mean, he had he actually started more horses than Todd during last year's winter meat. But, you know, it's also like, I don't want to say, like in this to the JVs trying to take on the varsity. And I'm not saying that safiya's a JV trainer, but the analogy is that no, he's got to step it up a little bit and, you know, he's got more horses, but Todd's got a bunch of horses and tabs quality is usually always been more than SAP. But, you know, Seth is a good horseman and he's going to get his shera wins. Does he have enough in his barn to knock off Todd? I don't know about that. But if I was going to do a poll on this, I think I put Todd on top. What about you, Dale? Yeah, I'll put him on top anyway, but he's way on top. I mean, soft, we can win the title for winning the most races, but Todd went to title for winning the races. You know, that's an interesting point because so often there's press releases that are sent out after every meat at racetracks and they say, oh, so and so was the leading trainer. So and so was the leading owner. So was the leading jockey. What do trainers covet more? Is it that leading trainer title by number of wins or would they much rather finish second or third in the standings and walk away with more money? Well, I'd speak for myself. I think earlier in my career training titles were very important. They got less and less important. And I'm sure same with Todd and more important about trying to win the right races and develop the right horses and you start thinking about your legacy a little more. And I think that more be remembered more for big races in multiple races. But isn't it more important though to also put money in your pocket too? That's the big races. Show me the money. Well, we'll see how it plays out again. That championship meet kicking off on Friday at pletcher safi Joseph, both going to be loaded and coming down there with the best horses. As will Dale Romans Dale looking forward to your horses strutting their stuff at Gulfstream, my friend. Yeah, we're gonna have a good winner. I think we had a great fall and some good two year olds coming on to beat three. We're just gonna be a fun winter. All right, we'll see if gael Romans can dethrone Todd Fletcher. What do you think? I don't think so, not a number of ways. So I just wanted to beat this first time you ever won a race where you beat me. I seem to beat me from the very beginning. His first race I ran second. Maybe this will be the winter of Romans. Who knows? I like that. The winter of Romans. Well, Dan, we'll talk to you next week. Timmy will talk to you next week. Appreciate the time guys. I ask the answer, we'll do it all over again. Ten 30 Eastern Time next Saturday. Fun stuff. Interesting point by Dale, though. What's more important? Is you heard him say, in the early days of his career, those leading trainer titles meant a lot more than they do today. He'd rather have the money today and who can blame him. But yeah, that will be interesting to see how this plays out in terms of the number of wins. Can saffy Joseph junior challenge Todd butcher in that category. He gave him a little run last year he thinks he can give him an even bigger run here in 2021, 2022. When I come back, I'll wrap up the show tell you what's ahead on.

"trainer safi joseph" Discussed on The Horse Racing Radio Network Podcast

"Mean, I think that, you know, he's deserves to be on the list, which Dale hates, but you know he's he's a guy that, you know, a lot of people really don't know that much about. He's only been riding here in the U.S. on a regular basis since 15. And, you know, he's he's he's become a go to writer and out west. He's got a bunch of writing titles that delmar, but he's not in the household name if you will. Category like maybe Joelle and my old friend, I read, and Jose Ortiz, Louis Sia's, but, you know, yeah, I think that if you're going to have to have these polls, which Dale hates, I guess they did get it right. All right, final topic for today. Again, you can listen to I asked, they answer every single weekend here, ten 30 eastern is when we kick it off on the equine forum. If you miss them, head back to our website and check out the podcast of each of these segments. They have been really informative. All right, final segment and it involves Gulfstream's championship meet, which begins on Friday. Trainer safi Joseph junior comes into the meat with a ton of momentum having just captured the fall meat title and the spring summer meat title before that. Safi finished 8 wins behind Hall of Famer Todd pletcher at last year's championship meet, of course, pletcher recorded his 18th title for the championship meet last year. He's been unstoppable. Joseph was quoted in an article this week, guys, is saying the championship meet is Todd's meat. Last year we were pretty close, but we didn't have as many horses as we have this year. I think we can give him a run for his money. What are the chances safi Joseph junior walks away with the championship meat training title this year? He's got a solid chance he wins a lot of races, but I will say one thing, Todd pledge to walk away with the money title. So it'll be about show me the money. I don't think he was concerned about the number of wins anymore. So he just went in the big ones and he went all the big ones down there. He's powerhouse getting stronger all the time. Yeah, I mean, Todd is he's mister Gulfstream, just like he's mister Saratoga with, you know, he wins all those meat titles. It was almost shocking to some people a couple years ago when she had Brown started is running back Tod off. Can saffy Joseph do it? Yeah, why not? I mean, he had he actually started more horses than Todd during last year's winter meat. But, you know, it's also like I don't want to say like in this to the JVs trying to take on the varsity. And I'm not saying that safiya's a JV trainer, but the analogy is that he's got to step it up a little bit and he's got more horses, but Todd's got a bunch of horses and Todd's quality is usually always been more than SAP. But, you know, safiya's a good horseman and he's going to get his shera wins. Does he have enough in his barn to knock off Todd? I don't know about that. But if I was going to do a poll on this, I think I put Todd on top. What about you, Dale? Yeah, I'll put him on top anyway, but he's way on top of me. Sophie could win the title for winning the most races, but Todd went to title for winning the races. You know, that's an interesting point because so often there's press releases that are sent out after every meat at racetracks and they say, oh, so and so was the leading trainer. So and so was the leading owner. So it was the leading jockey. What do trainers covet more? Is it that leading trainer title by number of wins or would they much rather finish second or third in the standings and walk away with more money? Well, I'd speak for myself. I think earlier in my career training titles were very important. They got less and less important. And I'm sure same with Todd and more important about trying to win the right races and develop the right horses and you start thinking about your legacy a little more. And I think that more be remembered more for big races in multiple races. But isn't it more important though to also put money in your pocket too? That's the big races. Show me the money. Well, we'll see how it plays out again. That championship meet kicking off on Friday at pletcher safi Joseph, both going to be loaded and coming down there with the best horses. As will Dale Romans Dale looking forward to your horses strutting their stuff at Gulfstream, my friend. Yeah, we're gonna have a good winner. Think about a great fall and some good two year olds coming on to be three when I'm just gonna be a fun winter. All right, we'll see if gael Romans can dethrone Todd Fletcher. What do you think? I don't think so, not a number of ways. So I just wanted to be beaten his first time he ever won a race where he beat me. I seem to beat me from the very beginning. His first race I ran second. Maybe this will be the winter of Romans. Who knows? I like that. The winter of Romans. Well, Dan, we'll talk to you next week. Timmy will talk to you next week. Appreciate the time guys.
