"What happens when you get a second chance? That question is at the heart of the new TV show, queens, about a 90s hip hop girls group that reunites for a second chance at fame. And for Nadine Velazquez, who plays valeria, the only member of the group who is still in the limelight, that question is deeply personal. You know Nadine from her roles on this is Earl and the league, those gave Nadine a taste of success and left her feeling lost anyway. Took being fired from a job and being given a shot at a do over to grant needing the clarity she needed to go after the things she wants most. Nadine, thank you so much for doing this. Thank you for having me. What is sort of the dates that queens hooks into is 1999? And watching it, I was wondering, what were you actually doing in 1999? Who were you in 1999? In 1999 I was cool. I think I was a junior it Columbia college. I was living with a man who was older than me. I was working for talent agency as an assistant, and then I think I was also waitressing or hosting or something at night. That squares because it seems like you're the type of person who's always living 5 different lives at the same time. Oh yeah, there was definitely a time I had 5 jobs at once. Especially when I was I moved out when I was 16, I became very ambitious at 16. I knew I had to survive. So I was determined to finish school was determined to get a degree. I was determined to have money because I knew I could be a statistic and just be a deadbeat. All the odds were against me. You know what I'm saying? And there have been a lot of detours along the way. My understanding that you really in your heart wanted to be a writer, but got redirected. What was that redirection? Acting? It's a very long story, but when I was working for the talent agency, I thought I was going to become an agent while I finished school and after I graduated at Columbia. I wanted to get a master's in writing. And so part of that was television writing, fiction all kinds of writing. And that's the year that I met my husband. My second husband, because I was married twice. And he was an agent in Los Angeles. For a literary agent writers. So it was perfect, but then the agency that I worked for as an assistant, the agent there told me that I had to be an actress. That was my calling. Why? What was it about you that made that person say that? Thought I was. She was like, she's the one who actually pushed me to get my head shots and 'cause she kept saying to me to this day. Her name is mirna Salazar. She lives in Chicago. She had a Latino agency. The only Latino boutique agency in Chicago for a long time. And she was also like a mother figure to me because I left early at gravitated to just her sense of business and the fact that she was a strong woman. And so I really enjoyed working for her. And one day she was just like, when are you going to ask me for your headshots? And I'm like, I'm not planning to be an actor. I feel like that vote's gone. She's like, are you kidding me? You belong in Hollywood. This is the perfect time for you. And so my thought was, if I'm going to be an actress then I don't want to be in an actress in Chicago like then take it all the way. And she was like, no, you have to go to Los Angeles, and I thought I don't know how to get to Los Angeles. I only know Chicago. I have this job here. I'm going to school. That didn't make sense to me. And then I met my husband who was a literary who was in Chicago happened to be working with one of his clients I was working there for a weekend, and then we just connected. There's a whole long story of how we actually came together 9 months later after September 11th, we were brought together again, but this time I fell in love with him. Before I didn't. And then that's how I ended up in LA. I did end up and I didn't know how I was gonna end up in LA, but I ended up in LA and then when I ended up in LA, I thought about what she told me. And I was like, this is the time I'm here. She said that I should be here. The universe got me here, so I had an agent and a manager like this overnight. And I'm like, so it's right here in my hand. What do I do? And then so I started pursuing that more than the writing. I was taking writing classes in LA for a little bit. You're letting me talk way too long. I got all the time in the world. You're the one who's got a heart out. Yeah, okay, so anyway, more of the story is, I follow signs. I've lived my life that way. I do want to get to the moral of the story because I think there are a lot of us who are not going to be Hollywood writers or Hollywood actresses, but your story as I understand it is very much one of being ushered in a direction and then after you had achieved some success, ushered down that path. Sort of do hit a dead end where you start to wonder for yourself, is this really what it is that I want? And that is a very familiar feeling for a lot of us, right? Whether we feel like we have been ushered into partnerships into motherhood into careers that somebody else picked for us. And for you, that realization comes pretty dramatically and at what could have been a incredibly high cost. You're on this film, you're acting alongside Will Smith and as I say just burn out. Another breakup coming off of a TV show, I hated being away. I hated being in North Carolina. I hated being in Vancouver. I was questioning everything. Why did I take the job? Why do I think that I have to just take any job? What am I going to do if I don't take the job? I'm with the guy only because I'm 37 and I think my time is running out and I should just stay with him because he's going to want to hear her. A lot of ideas that were false that I bought into because I had a plan. Sometimes I told this story, I saw my life up until I was 30. When I was a teenager, for whatever reason I just saw two 30. And I didn't see past that. Maybe I thought at 30 I would be going so well that I would then think of the next ten years. But I never saw my life passed 30. I just knew I wanted to be professional and I wanted to be a millionaire by 30. That's what I said. I would always say that. My 30, I'm gonna be a millionaire. And by 30 I was. I was on my name is Earl. It was several seasons. I was making really good money. I had a husband, he also had incredible income. We had home in Los Angeles. We had car. We had everything. I had it all. The way that I envisioned it. But.

"That's just that's the end of the world to me, where your rivals are poaching players from you because of Instagram. Just the downfall of society. What else do we got here guys? Good things to come, maybe. Roll the Chapman look good and that save effort on Wednesday against the angels. Doing some digging, some help from talking yanks. And I was just looking because he was locating his velocity was there as splitter look good. Everything was good. Last 16 outings, dating back to July 6th for the left hander, 15 and a third innings, three earned runs, 9 hits, 24 strikeouts, 11 walks, 8 strikeouts, a one, 8, 8 saves, I'm sorry, not 8 strikeouts. 24 strikeouts, 8 saves, 1.76 ERA. I know it hasn't felt like that because Chapman's gotten into a lot of trouble. Notably in Atlanta when he loaded the bases and then wandy Peralta had to come in and save the day. But hey, dude, that's a lot better than what we saw from Chapman from like what June to end of May to what I don't even remember when it started because I need to erase it from my brain. But nonetheless, it was his first 19 outings or 20 outings that were nails. And then every outing after that was a disaster. He gets back on track, I don't know. Defense trust him. I don't entirely trust him. I'd like to see him get back on track for sure. I'd like to see his regular 9th inning outings where he's pumping gas and overwhelming hitters. But do I trust him in the postseason? I can't. I simply can not. Will it be a problem for the Yankees in the postseason? Probably, why are we going to think this is going to go away? At the very least, on a positive note, we're looking at glass half full. He's getting on track at the perfect time. We're in September. Here comes the stretch. Need to win games in September. So you gotta treat September as the postseason. You're only a game and a half up for the top spot in the wildcard. He had home field advantage, especially if it's going to be the Red Sox man. I really don't want that to happen, but the home field just needs to be a thing..

"So now we got this series against the Orioles coming up in The Bronx guys. What else do you want me to say? It's simply has to be a tweet, a tweet. It simply has to come on Twitter. Sorry. It has to be a sweep. They can not settle for anything. It's the rays lost again to the Red Sox, not entire. I don't know what's ideal for the Yankees now. You know, do you want the raise to keep losing and the Red Sox gaining ground? The Red Sox are a game and a half behind the Yankees now. It's just three in the lost column. And the rays are 6 and a half up on the Yankees for the division. So luckily the Yankees have this three game set against the Orioles that they truly have to take advantage of because the Red Sox next 9 games, oh, I'm sorry. Red Sox next 12 games come against the Indians, not bad, but not great, raise White Sox and Mariners, and those latter 6 are on the road. So ground to make up here for the Yankees who will have the Orioles, the Blue Jays and the mets in the mets, the one makeup game against the twins and then the Orioles again. So this is it, guys. You can really kick the Red Sox. You could really kick the Red Sox down by taking advantage of wins here and watching them lose some

It's a home wildcard game. That's what you want. that's what you play for. What they have the control their destiny right now but on the off chance that he doesn't like you can't tell me that this team has never been more prepared for situation like that with a guy like nestor and he'll behind him who can easily just absorb the next like six innings between them and get it too low iza and get it to chapman like there are a ton of dudes who right now are in the the rotation and have been like borderline ace level guys. Who if you need them to. The playoffs can easily be the is. Just give you three all out. Innings of weirdness and think about think about following kohl with nestor and then falling. Nestor with he'll that's fun. I mean that's very fun. And even just nester. And he'll that's a fun playoff game. Maybe one goes for one goes three like it's funky. It's fun it's interesting. i don't hate anything about it. I let's let's talk a little bit about you. Know let i mean. We're going to talk about luke voight agan before we sign off. I do want to give the twins credit. though wh- mean we beat the shit out of them. three dominant victories. They almost came back from six. Nothing down in the first game kind of sort of six nothing to six four six nine six three two six four two seven four seven five then went with squad and the game the next two games. They were nowhere close but a lot of people are doing all you. He's always beat the twins. It's true the twins it's hilarious. It's weird makes no sense but a lot of people are following that by being like they're worse than normal this year they're terrible. You know what that's said nothing about anything. Prior to coming to new york which again the twins always have problems here but prior to coming to new york the minnesota twins who have struggled this season foreshore went to cincinnati early august august third and fourth split that series seven five and lost six five since as now in the wild card. That's like one of the hot teams in baseball. Split that series on the road went to houston took three from the astros minnesota twins. Oh sorry took three of four from the astros. Nari read that wrong one. Another gate got another game. One it white sox come to minnesota. Minnesota takes two three raise. Come to minnesota. Minnesota takes two three indians golden minnesota minnesota takes two of three. One of those wins was a walk off. Two of those indians wins. We're walkup so the twins are coming in having split series with the hottest team in baseball taking three or four from the astros beating the white sox and raise and indians and three series in the yankees decimate them in three games. Great job yankees. Twins are at their hottest. The hottest the twins ben all year twins are supposed to win the division easily. Are i mean. I don't know people like the white sox playoff team. They aren't and that's fine but they've played like a playoff team in august and he just took them.

"On this roster for more than like another couple of days. And that's insane but again what i mean. How do you demoted him. But also how do you keep him. What do you do unless you pretend. Laboratories is a season ending injury. You can do that if you want. I mean somebody's gonna get hurt at some point this roster never stays all the for that long but how can you justify demoting but you can't justify keeping it gets tough too because look. We're expecting corey. Kluber back in the next couple of weeks on. So that's gonna how you home ed's to have the free up and klay homes have to free up other roster spot so i really don't know what you do Velazquez obviously is not going to stay. I would like him to stay. I i love his defense. It's a shame because we have been watching him over these last A week it's been about a week and a half or something like that. No long And you can just tell the you could tell the difference you can you can look at gleyber torres botched you can watch them both play and you could just tell labor towards is not a natural shortstop and that's not really a knock against him. I don't i the the organization is right. He's a better second baseman than he is. A shortstop i understand. He came up in the minors playing a lot of short but The natural instincts aren't there. It's more passive defense than it is. Aggression you've seen velazquez Take charge a ton of balls in the infield and rip him over the first base so many times glacier towards it feels keys aiming to throw to first base or waiting the ball to take that extra bounce to him This is simply the tests if you've been watching yankees baseball all year and it just goes to show that the gifts that fielders have a shortstop it's very instinctual and andrew velasquez very much has that instinct. It's also helpful that he's switch hitter and he is obviously not the greatest city in the world but he's certainly aggressive and he likes to try to hack at pitches when he when he thinks he's getting the right one Thirteen games not overly impressive with a to forty two average. But he's homered. He's got six guys. He stolen a couple of bags. He's got a triple in their six runs scored in those thirteen game so stuff's happening when when he's in the lineup and you know what when you're when you're glove is excelling in the field. Not everybody's going to really be zoned in the microscope on you when you're you're in the batter's box and that's kind of what's been happening with labor torres. His glove hasn't been great is defense is look very passive and then everyone's expecting oh but this guy's got thirty five home or power so we can expect something very good from him on offense. Can't we not this year. I don't know why I hope labor's going through the motions and trying to figure out what's wrong. The conventional wisdom would suggest that it the the problem is. He's playing a he's back at shortstop full-time and He doesn't really have confidence down. And it might be affecting his approach plate So it just. It's crazy because velazquez really not not blowing not blown away with numbers on offense. But he's he's.

"Pitch the have germany petric's registers look good. I feel like we've been saying this sort of even since the off season that i think the key starting pitching is better than people think. And it's not to me what we're like what's gonna worry me come. The playoffs is the same thing that worries me every year. Are they going to be hit. Really good pitching in situation lavas. They've been great so far but in really good in against really good pitching runners in scoring position and stuff like that. That's what's gonna worry me. The soaring picking. I feel pretty good about. I feel good about yes for me. My number one concern is the bullpen. Just audio that's my number the editions of rizzo And gallo and basically void. You can cowboys in addition because he really just wasn't here very adamant rule of trade deadline thoughts right Those three edition assists lineup. That really weren't here all year. Have just you know this lineup is horrifying and then you're looking at gio or shallow. I think back next week Which would be massive. Because the i want him there for the oakland series badly. That's a four-game set. That starts on thursday really need. Go back for that. And hopefully he's on track for that. But i don't know he hasn't maybe he's not but he should in my mind he should be but i feel like that you probably want to make they wanna get him a rehab start a reappearance so i guess you could technically do that in early part of next week. I don't know what their schedule is. Invaded announce anything Today Maybe the rain fucks everything up with that. But i really want she back for the oakland series badly even bringing them back friday or something. Maybe he's not there for one day. The oakland series but he should have time to get a couple but if he plays Tuesday wednesday rehab games or something. Yeah i just want him back for that edge of alaska's. Just a just a really really really awesome. Awesome story unfolding here in the bronx with this kid. I don't know if we talked about him enough. but squid is awesome Continues to come through for this team. He's a great defensive shortstop. He's literally want us games at shortstop in his time here Smacks his first career home. Run on saturday with his family in attendance to make it. I think to make it seven one. And as he's running around the basis he can't help but smile too crazy story that's unfolding. I mean kit born. The bronx is dad is a new york. I think so. Now i couldn't tell these kerner former but Nypd detective. And i think he wears his like golden medallion on on him when he plays He's living with his parents right now. Like in the bronx 'cause just to save money and all that so and he's like why would i am twenty minutes from the stadium and yeah i mean everything is just so genuine about this kid and i you know i feel like i'm going to insult labor here like he's kinda done more. Tv than glaciers done all year in this little span of time read hebrew like it feels yes. I don't know statistically whatever it just feels like. He's already had more moments. And i. Although i will say labor did ha- labor's had like three couple walks off. Yeah fair but the andros blazquez. This whole story is a story you need and like a special season stories like this are are part of like not know world series. But whatever it's like you need a story like this to make this season special ipad next man up twenty seventeen. It was like all the young guys coming up. You need like those weird little Stories that just helped make season feel more exciting. And he is like the perfect example of that. Is he going to be hitting fifth in the lineup. Should they make the postseason now will be on the roster who knows but for a few weeks now he's giving the yankees a much needed jolt of energy and just like a spark that they need. Yeah i i'm a little worried. What happens when labor does come back. Because i do five. I know it's september right so okay. Maybe that's a good point so remember you're not expanding rosters right but it's forty but it's like three more. I believe right for like three or four more. But you'd imagine they they're going to load up on pitch. Yeah but i would think he's played his way to have the they'll still on utility infielder and that's got to be his spot. But there is wade who continues to just hit right. But he's like the roster back up i think okay i see your side i think wade let me pull up. Wade's last i mean. It's like five hundred over the past thirty bathroom. He legitimately is. Let's impose game while real quick so once was. When did he start to really cook. Started to cook okay. It had been the miami series july thirty a- so dating back july yet. Holy shit dating back to july thirtieth. He's hitting four twenty five with a five twenty one on base percentage forty nine plate appearances. That's crazy holy shit. I mean we've been wondering what the inky see in tyler way in wada's you keep surviving. I don't think they saw this. They never envisioned tyler. Rib's gonna become this just behemoth at the plate. I mean at some point deejays mccook and lately his over the last like two weeks. She didn't like a cost of four hundred people. Been saying like we're why isn't weighed leading off. And like i mean if you're a five twenty on base percentage and he seemed you've seen the balls. I mean his over his oath. Ps was last for planning. Parents is is ten forty six. What's what now like. He's now his his bip is five sixty seven so sure is he getting lucky. Okay but you know what you're being fast is something that contributes so he's someone that should have an above average ab-. Yeah his last like five years or whatever the hell was he. I bet his was like one hundred. So you know it's been starting to balance out where he's getting lucky now He's also beating shifts. He's taking a balls It's crazy crazy with it jim. Lena amway's doing this. He's playing every position. he's playing left. Swing short like center is pulling third. Second it's crazy. He's just done that that alone. I know velazquez is crazy. Special story that like just makes you feel good but like makes this like the tyler wade. Resurgence were swallowed watching right. Now that doesn't happen in like an anon- special year like this is something that's like. He's having out of body experience right. Something's in the water right now. The fact that his average right now is to seventy eight inside Very good modern day. Mlb over one hundred twenty two plate appearances it's like it's not like a fluke three fifty five p. It's just a good season. He's having he'll he'll never have. Rbi he'll never hit home but that's not his game like his not hit his game into play with the joey gallows of the world. You know his game is to get on base steel basis Which is also alaska's by the way mean. He just like so fast. When he hit that ball on thursday night in the gap i was like i said triple right away because and he made it show easily like. He's just adding speed to this team. Gave him such a new life on top of gilmer's but like the speed edition that they just did not have in the first half of the season stew in the wonders. Is it in a weird way all the injuries and the cova right after the all star break almost help like dinky started to play differently. They started to play more scrappy. More small ball with more energy. Like the by the way greg allen. Rip think we'll ever see him again. Well he could be september true exactly what they. They're shaving him for september but.

No jockey announced at Showtime Number seven Rock Your World who have bounced around like a billiard ball in the Kentucky Derby. Joel Rosario takes another crack and number eight overtook who's got some past races, including it's known agenda that might make her man make him a contender on his best day. So that's the Belmont field. We'll talk about the other races, uh, in the course of the show, But right now, let's welcome Roger Neubauer from thorough graph to the show. Good morning, Roger. Good morning, J. How are you doing? I'm doing well, sir, Are you all ready for this huge, huge day. Yes, I've been getting ready for a couple days actually had you are correct. This is quite a card and really looking forward to getting into this today and I think the track is going to be much better. I think everybody watched yesterday and that they lose of rain that came down and, uh, but I expect the track to be fast today. They're dry, it dries out pretty quickly. It certainly does. So, uh, yeah, I I would say Thorogood half had a couple of nice scores throughout the weekend before, uh before I forget, not that I ever forget anything. But let me just mention a couple of your your exploits at Gulfstream Park yesterday. 10 40 winner in race eight at a $38 exacta and you scored last week at Churchill delivering a 55 80 exacta. The 91 combination Array six and then last Sunday and raised one of Churchill $25. Winter Nice and Race. Six of $42. Exactly, So you certainly did a little damage for the fans. Yeah, it's been. It's been going from track to track. But Churchill has been pretty good for us, uh, this year, so it's a It's a shorter me. I believe. I think they're only run until the end of June. But It's always It's always a good track for us. Yeah, Yeah, definitely So, And it's a nice full field. So before we get into your picks, Roger, I asked both you and Steve if you might come up with a Belmont memory or two, and you came up with one that you're you finally remember if you can Please tell us your father's Belmont memory. Yeah. So my fondest memory. It's uh um Is of the 2000 and four Belmont and Smarty Jones. Um we were fortunate enough that year to see all of his preparation is, um In Arkansas, the Southwest rebel in the Arkansas Derby and then wasn't at the Derby or the Preakness, but got a chance to go to the Belmont, especially when it was clear it was going to be a Triple Crown. And there was 120,000 people there that day. And that horse. That horse was a rock star. I mean, they had a camera back in this stall, and every every time the camera went on that horse 120,000 people stood up and started cheering. I mean, it was just nuts the entire day, the second he walked on the track to come to the saddling ring. It was just it was an amazing thing to be around. And it was amazing to hear be able to hear a pin drop with 120,000 people around you after they crossed the finish line. That is the quietest I've ever heard a crowd go ever Yeah. And, uh, certainly, Smarty Jones had the Triple Crown on the line, and, uh, Certainly gave it everything he had. Yeah, you know, coming into the stretch, She still had a good read. Nobody was paying attention to anybody behind them. They were just looking at him, So the crowd was just it was mayhem. And it was really just a fun day to be there. The cards. The card was still very good. You know, It's not like it is now with eight grade ones. But card was still very good. It was a fun day to be around. We actually had a horse in an earlier race on the card that day, so that was really nice to And it was just It was a lot of fun and horse that we got to watch, Sort of mature at Oakland Park. And then unfortunately, the they didn't end like we wanted it to. But it was still an amazing experience. Someone I'll never forget. Yeah, so Roger, are we going to start today? Well, we'll start at Belmont, and we're going to do the Met Mile as you mentioned earlier. And the thing we like about this race, we're not against Nick's go, but what we are against our two horses that are going to beat that rather heavily. The 2nd and 3rd favorites. And the first one. We're against his mischievous Alex. Um The one post is not the best post in the world for a mile race at Belmont. But besides that this horse jumped way up to a lifetime Top negative. 4.5 last time out. And we're really expecting this horse to react to this today and at 5 to 2, maybe even 2 to 1. This horse. This horse is a play against as well as the third favorite silver State at 72 Morning line. This one is different. This one is just not fast enough to go with the other The other horses in the race, So the main play here is we're against the the one and the three. Yeah, that was gonna go with that We're going to go with, um three horses. Well, then we can't toss Mexico. He's just too fast. He used to run two negative quarters in his career. Each time that he's bounced a little bit. He's come right back to that number. Now you're throwing something new into it here with the ship overseas, and we'll see. But anyway, we have to use him. But we're we really like Dr Post number 2 92, who ran a negative. 1.5 hasn't had a lot of career races, then really looks to be second started his four year old career sitting on a big A big race. And the last one will uses by my standards who ran a negative to last out. I like courses like this. I don't even don't know what your thoughts are, J. But as I courses that are proven that a mile and an eighth and and further and then they're cutting back to this mile distance, they just sometimes to me seem to have a better foundation in a straight Mylar. But that's just my opinion. Yeah, I agree. Certainly at your favorite track in Oakland Park in that Oakland Mile, just really took to it. That was by my standards. First tried a mile.

House approves bills offering citizenship path to ‘Dreamers’, asylum seekers and farmworkers
"The House has approved legislation to carve out a path to citizenship for young people who were brought to the U. S illegally as Children and for migrant farm workers. NPR's Claudio Gonzalez reports the bills passed in largely party line votes. House Democrats wanted to move forward with the broader immigration bill from President Biden but did not have the votes needed for passage. So the House has approved to smaller provision, The Dream and Promise Act and the Farm Work Force Modernization Act. Here is New York representative Nydia Velazquez. This view is the morally right thing to do is the fiscally responsible move a muscle. It is the American way forward. But most Republicans oppose the measures, along with the bill, reflecting Biden's vision form or sweeping changes, and Democrats leading the efforts in the Senate say they still don't have the bipartisan support to move any of the bills forward.

Three and ten years I think that's something that's getting overlooked here. animal kingdom always dreaming. authentic. Things did not go as planned when that gate opened on Saturday? Well I tell you. I was expecting that the we're GONNA break a little slow and I? Even said it. Before they raised a couple of his did I did you know? I get in like the position that we had just because being last one indicate normally once you get into gate. kind of like to get a sausage facets of canned really wants to live circuits. So horse is not. Hundred percent spending properly, and You Know Eight, hundred, ten, th there for jumping number good and even. He's not very quick from the gate. So with watching he's prior races and being the last one and go into the I I was back to not. On the other hand I knew he was going to be quick. you know to to get too close to the lead or BMW before we get, we get to the to the turn. So you know I didn't wear so much and I think even if you the way broke, I kinda wane gradually you know going into the lead before we get to the first time. Were you surprised that no one took advantage of the lackluster break and that you were able to clear by the time you've got that I I. Well I. If we look back at the race really there was only one. One speed horse in and teeth the law and I knew he was not wanna go to delete or you know that's not the way they they actually wanted them to you know and listened to Berkeley and and and prior to that you know the just like to suck somebody and so on. And other words Park elope is I thought he probably go to the lead and and I was willing to let him go if you wanted to do obviously when we pass it pass the wire for the first time in and see him and he wasn't going to delete it. So that was my turn you know to. Okay. Let me go ahead and do what Mars you want to do. You always talk to us here on the network about playing you leave the paddock with plans a to Z with a horse like authentic. There's really not much and you know you know he's GonNa break a little slow at least you did he's not going to break that sharp. You're going to be on the lead I'm sure after you watch the Haskell. You. Likely. Did you have some concerns about the mile and a quarter after watching the Haskell? We always have it. You know and and. Talking to by he, he's just like you know what I think I haven't much ready this time know for going on quarter. We always had a question whether he can't go out on any tips like, but you you you bob. You have to carry the source now he goes to putting the pressure. And he says that when you get to the stretch I, want you to to get you let handed ready for this. Okay. Make sure you get you get his attention and I mean to territory worked out. Perfect. You know talking about we planning with we were just rubies. Have dinner like three, nine, five bike and we keep talking about it. Then it's like you'll make sure you haven't left hand to you know get attention and if you look back from the house cold to the Derby, Mike, Never hit him though Mike he just GonNa kick. Showing the weapon and kind of top him this time you know I got the. Price Him and he responded right away i. that was the difference dry. They're actually afterwards Bob said to me if he makes had hidden his left handed in this house. You would never be on him on the Derby because I don't think he would have got off of them. You know what I mean, and that's why they thought. It was that he might not want to go the distance and. He's a little quirky so he kinda gets distracted very very, very easily and he looked he looked like he was GonNa win easy and and the has over. So it kind of you know the other horses going back to him so. If he had, he had a ham handed I think he would have gone on and You would have been in these stories. So I'm glad he did. Now Three Kentucky Derby wins that that is rarefied Air Bob said after the race when he wants six, it never gets old, you feel the same way. Absolutely. You know. They ask me that the obviously when month derby ends like if it gets old you into something else go and retire and something now absolutely that that feeling that you get. The satisfaction you get, it's incredible. There's just no worse due to this drive it you know and I mean if you get up to to be in this kind of thing, Menendez GonNa. Racist It's incredible. It's just no words to describe it. You know. Got To be. Blessed.

I'm new to this. I didn't understand. Okay. Okay. Well, I'll just do a good job. I didn't settle right with me. I didn't like that.

Rock Cat Hall of Famer Bill Will Give Fellow Hall of Famer John Velazquez a leg up and this phillies done very little wrong on her career. She's three for seven. With four second-place finishes ran second in a couple of graded stakes, including the grade one spin away up at Saratoga last year last seen winning a third level allowance optional claimer. She uses stakes. Winner took the any limit kick off three year old season three starts back. and. Probably the only reason that this race isn't later in the card is that it's a five Horsfield and Franks? Rakhat is three to five on the morning line, and she may be the the loan speed in race, so she's going to be tough to beat at three to five, but that's a pretty short price, considering there some pretty good up and coming phillies near now I think number four center. I'll I'm going to give her another shot for. For Chad Brown and Joel Rosario Sheila Great Getting Her Maiden Win Gulfstream Park, when bet down to three to five at the end of March then came back in a tough allowance race at Churchill downs where she was really over bet, she was three to five that day against another very impressive maiden winner of this one for Steve Asmussen in casual casual ran a great race that day center I'll had all sorts of problems. She didn't break that well. She had trouble during the race, and she was just really never in at any point. I think it's a racy can kind of draw a line through? If she runs closer to the way she did and her debut. I think she's the one that could give Franks rock cat. The biggest problem Franks rocket will probably get the lead I would think Rosario would have center I'll sitting justin behind her and seeing if they can outgun into the line going six and a half furlongs. With you I'm going to take a shot with center. Rile planner. If? When I plan! Early took five tomorrow I will use both Franks rocket and center, but I'll tell you what I think. You can make a case also for up in smoke was undefeated and sprints. She's four five and a career. Lone blemish came when George Weaver tries to stretch her out Hollywood wildcat. Go at Gulfstream Park. She's raced exclusively of Gulfstream, in fact, steady diet once. Once a month February march April may June now. She gets a race in July. Here over Big Sandy, she wanted the game face overboard last time out for weaver Rod Ortiz Junior. Who wrote her in her debut against fellow Florida breads down at Gulfstream Park's in the climb back aboard for the first time. Since that day looks, you'll need a little help up front if Franks, rockets able to set an easy pace I. She's going to be very very tough. I think Senator I'll be the first one to come calling. Those are the two up in smoke. If you're looking to three deep, I don't think you need to center for Bobby and I race number three goes as the great three six and a half for a long victory ride go to the end of the card. Eleven race card like I said earlier, and the final four races make up an all stakes pick four, and it starts in reasoning with the greed three poker. Flat Mile on the turf for many years. This was the fourth of July staple. On the naira calendar here it is now as part of a super five stakes card. In, the poker though. On the widener, so they come out of that shoot. On the clubhouse turn we get a field of eight entered for the turf as a main track. Only it's all relevant with the way. The weather's been here. I would imagine you know there's supposed to be some rain. We're recording the show Friday afternoon supposed to be some rains rather day on Friday and into the evening. I can't imagine it enough to take this off the turf, so let's say it will be a field of eight.

We have in Columbia. Being abandoned is an honor. Velazquez delivered this incisive quote. Only a few years ago but the government corruption. He alludes to has a very long history one that is deeply entwined with the rise of the cartels in the Mid Nineteen Ninety s Columbia's then presidential candidate a Nesto. Some pair was accused of accepting six million dollars from a drug cartel though. Some pet narrowly won election and survive to impeachment proceedings. These signaled the corruption had reached the very highest levels of the Colombian government. It didn't end there in the two thousand six para political scandal. Five congressmen were arrested for collaborating with a paramilitary group that was responsible for killing thousands of Colombians civilians and as recently as two thousand eleven. Thirteen members of Columbia's Tax Authority were arrested for embezzling millions of dollars from the country's taxpayers. Over the US. This level of rampant corruption has undermined public faith in the Colombian government and election process within this context. One can see how Velazquez mine ocoee that compared to these politicians being abandoned is an honor however it must be pointed out that Popeye Alaska's was much more than just a bandit. He was a ruthless and prolific assassin. Beliefs Kaz began working for notorious drug lord. Pablo Escobar at the tender age of seventeen before joining the cartel. He had tried out the navy where he got the nickname Popeye for his strength and prominent jaw but Velazquez quickly left the service in search of a more thrilling line of work becoming Pablo. Escobar's enforcer was much more in line. With what Young Velasquez was looking for. He took to the bloody work with. Gusto over the course of his criminal career Velazquez claim to have personally murdered more than three hundred people as well as participating in the killings of thousands more in the midst of escalating violence Velazquez masterminded the deployment of upwards of two hundred car bombs against rival druglords and government officials and in Nineteen eighty-nine ve Alaska's targeted a Colombian presidential candidate by planting a suitcase bomb on a plane. Which killed all one hundred seven people aboard as well as three more on the ground he later described this mass murderer as a work of art. Even rampant government corruption begins to Pale in comparison to the level of Violence Velazquez. Took pleasure in meeting out. Presumably Popeye would have happily continued on as a hitman indefinitely but his exploits eventually caught up with him. In nineteen eighty. Nine Velasquez was sentenced to thirty years in prison for drug terrorism and the murder of a Colombian presidential candidate. He only served twenty two years before his release in two thousand fourteen with prison behind him. Velazquez publicly renounced his old ways and embarked on a new career as a kind of pundit and public figure he launched a youtube channel called Popeye Arab Pentito or remorseful Popeye in which he held court on various political issues affecting Columbia. The channel quickly racked up more than one point two million subscribers and Alaska's parlayed the online popularity into to book deals and a movie about his life which he directed and starred in Popeye also gave private tours of medicine highlighting the sites of cartel escapades though. Velazquez claimed to repent for his sins often and loudly. There is some evidence to suggest that his apology tour was more about attention and notoriety ben contrition in some videos. Popeye posted. He visited the graves of people he murdered and described in vivid detail. Exactly how he killed them. Perhaps as a way to relive his glory days also Velazquez reacted poorly when people didn't accept his apology for example when the son of a man who died in that plane bombing refused to forgive him. Popeye called him a bad man with an evil heart ultimately. There's no way to know pies true motivations but whatever Velasquez was he could certainly turn of phrase for example. Popeye once said it is better to die of a bullet than of a disease in bed. Ironically in February twenty twenty Alaska's passed away at age fifty seven from stomach cancer. It seems death is the great

Jose Ortiz Interview - October
"Welcoming Jose Ortiz who is a native of Puerto Rico and his one more than nineteen hundred races in what has been just a a stellar career and that career still going strong and he's with me now here on H. R. N. Jose Good Morning My friend Mike give having yeah. Thanks for taking a little time. I know you're a busy working horses. This morning. Never ends does it does not if you want to be the best which right now you certainly are my friend Brendan. You know it's interesting. I mentioned being a native of Puerto Rico one of the jockeys who mentored you when you came here and one of the people that you looked up to is his hall of Famer Johnny Velazquez who last week set the record for most greatest stakes victories by jockey in the history of the sport and that has to make you very proud. I know that yeah yeah we are happy about it and it keeps going throwing you know hopefully he can give winning some more on winning out much again until you know until heater dyers what makes him so good then you got a lot of these. Atlanta for the sport and I think that having taken to the next level where he's been for awhile you know yeah he certainly he's been doing it for a long time and still doing it at a very high level. How many great stakes victories are you behind him now. I don't know I have made the way to go yeah one day well that win yesterday and the Phoenix was impressive. This is a horse. You've you've been on before you knew him. You get back aboard him yesterday and he's able to hold off Whitmore who was putting in that late run. Take me through the race Jose. Well we broke. We broke very good. expect expecting a much faster pace but they did in in came out of five dollars. I thought they would and I was able to be closer than I than I thought. I was going in two weeks so I think that well We have a very pain trip when I ask him to. Well what they're for me the whole time. You know he's a horse worse by intimacy if that when you were riding him last year and even this year at Saratoga he was trained by Chad Brown now he's trained by Steve Asmussen. Ah when you were riding him before he was always knocking on the door but he couldn't quite get past horses like promises fulfilled you yesterday you beat him and everybody everybody else. Is there a difference. Did you feel something different now with engage than you did last year. He always been a ah very nice or worse. I think some more mature before others on. I think he'd take a while but I think he finally figured out you know. Did you know that Moore was gaining on your yesterday. I didn't knew what Whitmore Kabaya fell somebody coming out. You can tell yeah I could yeah. Did you know you had enough left in the tank. He very game he always has been and I knew what GonNa try but you know something this all horrors you know he's just turned four so there's all live orders season and they are very good. You know they they come in. They coming at you like wait Marino. He's very nice or you know that win. In the Phoenix was part of a Multi Win Day on opening day of Keeneland then you you've had several days in your career where you've won multiple races like that. I asked you what makes John Velazquez so good. What makes Jose Ortiz so good. I don't let somebody out of that. Answer that question. I guess right to be myself on gave that horses the best chance to win but you also worked very hard I mentioned you're out working in horses this morning. I know you're being humble and and that's what's part of makes you part of. What makes you so good but Jose you work your tail off and put me the in in the saddle with you for minute if you will if I can use that term take me through like your routine in your approach to riding races. How do you get ready to go out there. Every day and ride was everything star on the when the overnight comes up so I have to see we shorts on on quantum there I go the R F and and they got the raises and I put him whatever I think they should be and you know I have to talk to a trainers on and follow their their instructions but at the same time I want to I want her to be relax and that's that's what I try to be happy and I think they control and relaxed. We'll give you a running the end of it yeah you know. Johnny will always tell tell me about his different plans that he has going into the starting gate the plan a plan b the Plan C. and you hope you don't have to get any further than that but once the gates open you can listen to the trainers instructions all day long but once the gates open things can change quickly right very quickly. What do you you do at that point. Do you say Oh my God. I gotTa follow his instructions or do you say I just gotTa. Let my instincts takeover in and try to ride this race the way it needs to be ridden now so you've got to let your instincts they over because it's very tough to execute a plan when their plan doesn't work from from the gate you know. Yep You gotta change everything so I think you just gotTa Julia uh-huh. Yeah everything you could do everything changes in and you just have to adjust and that's why I've always said you know jockeys in terms of there's always that debate are jockeys true athletes athletes and I think you know I've said for years but pound for pound jockeys the most gifted athletes that we find in all sports and I have no doubt about it and you're certainly right there Jose. Let's talk about the horses that you're going to be aboard today. You're in all of the great stakes races at keeneland which is to be expected matter of fact. Thank you might be riding every single race at keeneland today. nice to be in demand extravagant. Kid is a horse. You're going to be aboard in the WOODFORD stakes. That's is the first greatest stakes today. What can you tell me about. Extravagant kid very nice hard. I had the opportunity to ride him. One time before and we won he's doing very good very fox. Horse doesn't need to be on the late which is very helpful full on way like junkets. Today we think is very life so right to win all right and then in the next race in the TC a talked to me and I think I'm saying that name correctly but talk to me the horse. You're going to be aboard there. You've been aboard her. The the last two starts second last time out in the Press Kyle downes master stakes on September sixteenth. Tell me a little bit about her. It's very nice to write very easy last time. She has run very very very good. we are expecting seeming to or better than last two times. I think she got shut all right and then the first lady turn our attention there you go to the first lady stakes miss bad behavior for Richard. Balta says the Horse Year aboard. What do you know about her. I won on her Kentucky Down She got some sleep but he's he's also stayed on the race so let's see how they're they're in writing about her because she he doesn't need elite. Also g come come on. We gotta go pole so let a break and make sure shade in a winning position I during your yeah how much different is writing this keeneland turf of course then of course like Kentucky Downs Kentucky down says the undulating up and down configuration. How much different is it run getting more like we do every day. You know saying Kinda you you know over same thing by Kentucky different. Go Up and down left right so I think in Kentucky and it's all about the horse like it you WanNa be okay. It doesn't like nothing you can do about like well. Let's hope that this bad behavior likes the keeneland turf course later today in the classroom breeders futurity Max Field for Brendon. Walsh is the second time that Brendan will give you a leg up in a greatest stakes today. Tell me about Max field. You went on him last time out to very nice coat a win first time out very nicely actually that day a he was a speed favor drug. Nobody was coming from behind and he did which is very impressive to me so I think we have something here. We got very nice coats so hopefully put it together and stay undefeated talk to for to all right and the last one admission office This is a horse who you road last year but haven't been on them for the last four starts you get back aboard admission office and that is in the the shad while Turf Mile. Tell me about him. What you remember about writing him before is on very cool hope to ride very easy going on to be honest? I love him. I think we had a huge show the winds along really how come because I think he's is a nice source if their truck come from behind and here something other threats you about to rush these sorts. BEC- they're stretchy short here. I wouldn't have to we go. We got our loan stretching so I think it was the drug I mean he. He did alright at one eight zero. He don't good with Y'all yup so he's got big right now. You can tell what what makes Jose Jose Ortiz so good. He knows every race that these horses have run before he gets aboard and he did indeed win. Three starts back at Keeneland in the spring which Joel Rosario Dario Award winning an allowance race getting up by neck and admission office the Horses Jose will be aboard in today's Shell Turf Mile Jose. I know it's a busy morning. I know you've got horses assist works. I won't keep you thank you so much for spending a little time. Congrats on all your success. My friend and I'll look forward to catching up with us. We make our way to Santa Anita in about a month. Mike thank you.
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 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
