"Account within 48 hours of race day get your bets ready and of course you can watch all the action. All weekend long, a little bit of a complicated schedule tomorrow. They start on FS1 from one to three 30, then they move to FS two from three 30 to 7, take a couple hours off, come back at FS two from 9 to 1130 p.m. eastern standard time. All right, Dave, a dozen races to get into and we're going to start at beautiful Belmont park. They've got a double header while not a double header. But a two bagger going on and tomorrow's card two stakes highlight the card. Starting with race number three, it's the wild applause $100,000 on the line for the three year old frills going one mile on the turf a short but sweet field of 5 in this one mile event. Most of the action is going to come to the outside part of the starting gate in number four breeze easy and number 5 eminent Victor. Yeah, eminent Victor was purchased by Mike del privately out of the debut at Arlington park back July of last year, a win at nearly 40 to one in a 5 furlong race on a synthetic surface and then bought by dub given a Chad Brown came back and really an ambitious spot in a grade one up at woodbine in September and ran pretty well at 11 to two at about 5 and a half to one. Finished behind a couple of pretty good horses and now has been off since the fall eminent Victor probably not good enough if he repeats or if she repeats one of her previous two, but I think given that long time off between the ages of two in between the ages of three, blinkers come off in here, you can expect a better imminent Victor and I think it's a reasonable to think that eminent victors should be the favor. Breeze easy who you mentioned for Christoph Claude and Joel Rosario wasn't a superstar in Europe, ran kind of okay pretty good against solid but not spectacular fields was just one of 8 last year and then came to this country and was almost 11 to one when just missing by a neck and had some traffic issues in a grade three at Beaumont in May and comes back a month later here and goes from 7 for longs to 8 furlongs and also off of that race even a little bit of improvement maybe a repeat of that could win this, but the horror side like best is a different Chad Brown on the rail oakhurst. I thought the race last time out at keenland was terrific and I know that this is tougher competition in here. I think a repeat of the race in April, the win at keeneland would do the trick in here and I think it's a fairly open race. I'd rather the 5 to two, the 9 to 5 or two to one. So oakhurst for me. Ochers the only multiple winner in the field. Everyone else just a one time winner ochres has won two of her four starts. I went to eminent Victor. I like that race behind wild beauty wild beauty. It's just much better than that field that day. She didn't break all that well still was able to beat pizza Bianca and eminent Victor very easily pizza Bianca has come back to be a nice feeling, not an overwhelmingly good Philly, but a nice filly as a three year old after her win in the breeders cup juvenile Phillies turf last year as a two year old. The question I have for eminent Victor and for oakhurst and febreze easy is, where do you expect them to be early on, David? It looks to me like Al kahira is the only one who resembles any sort of early speed. I'm just not sure she's good enough to beat these. Yeah, I think I feel the exact same way from a pace standpoint. I'm concerned because there's just not a lot of speed outside of the two horse Beaumont Philly. She just hasn't run a race quick enough to really compete with this group. I certainly think Mott has the opportunity to get better and Javier should have a perfect trip. I just haven't seen it in the 5 races or race that looks like compete with oakhurst and breeze easy and eminent Victor. Well, Chad Brown has three of the 5 chances in the field. Dave and I both think Chad brown's going to get the job done just with different runners. Dave likes oakhurst. I like eminent Victor in the wild applause race three tomorrow at Belmont park. Jump forward to the 8th race on tomorrow's Belmont card and it's the grade two mother goose. Quarter $1 million for the three year old Phillies going a mile and a 16th on the main track. And of course, a myelin is 16th at Belmont park. A little bit different than a mile in the 16th that just about everywhere else. It's around one turn. No doubt about it, though. Number 5 juju's map is going to be favored. She has been very impressive in her 5 star career thus far. Yeah, she was about as easy a winner on oaks day as you can find. And she was facing significantly less and first off a layoff was terrific. Just dominated that group at Churchill downs. And now off the layoff, I expect to see, if not an a effort, a pretty darn good one from juju's map. So the question is it even money is she vulnerable and can someone beat her? And I'm not sure I know the answer to that. I do think there's going to be some pace pressure in here and venti Valentine has proven to be a good but not a great horror. I think a New York bread who probably does best against state competition last time out was outmatched in the Kentucky yolks and really didn't have a great trip that day, but was 36 to one against secret oath and nest and that group. I think juju juice map probably fits closer to that group that grade one oaks group that then this kind of lesser group or what venti Valentine has consistently beaten the state bred types. I'm a little interested in on the rail. It's more for the connections than anything else. I think Todd pletcher and flavian Pratt are terrific and its second awful long layoff. We know that I hate the horses coming back from the Middle East. That's what tried to do in the Kentucky yolks. Well, I think the second time back, the second time in North America, you often get a much, much better effort. I don't know how good is though. And then gerrymander for Chad Brown and Clara vich stables, you get a nice price faced matter ray of last time and it matters too good for cherry mander, but the previous one was pretty good at Belmont park. That being said, Bobby, for gerrymander, it's a maybe she's good enough for venti Valentine. It's a kind of doubt but possibly she's good enough for shaham. It's maybe she's going to improve second time in North America. I know what juju's map is. I trust her, I believe in her. I think she's far and away the most likely winner. Okay, I'm going to try to beat her with. I think comes out of the best race by far in the Kentucky oaks. We didn't know what to make of in that race. She was one of a few Todd pletcher Phillies in the race, obviously he had nest in there as well. And she didn't really get any publicity and we didn't know what to think of her coming out of four straight races over in Dubai. Now she was very impressive in those races, but we never know what they're facing when they're facing that competition in Dubai. I thought ran well in the Kentucky oaks. She didn't have any speed at all. She didn't have the cleanest trips. She made up a lot of ground past about half of the field, finished 6th, beaten only 5 and a half lengths by secret oath would be one to 5 in this race. Nest was second, she'd be one to 5 in this race ran a great place against boys in the Belmont. This is an easier field for. And if there is pace like you expect there to be Dave, is going to come running. I don't think she lays over this field. I don't think it's a great two field. It's not a grade one field yet. I think she has a chance to run.

"Show Bobby Newman James Scully for your hour HR RN nation. Online still open, 888-966-4776, the number to get in and speaking of getting in, let's go out to New York Seth in New York. Welcome to the show, my friend. Hey, thank you. Nice to be on. I've heard I've heard multiple people, including some clockers talking about venti Valentine, but I'm intrigued when no one is really mentioning nostalgic who Bill Mott certainly knows how to train a top class Philly, even though she started with a low figure. I mean, you generally doesn't win first out by 7 or 8 lengths. And when he does, they've turned out to be some of his top ones. She's steadily improving. And while she has to move forward in this race, I think if she's anywhere near 15 to one, I think she's a great double prospect going into the Derby. And I just wanted to know your thoughts on her. Okay, before we let you go, Seth, so you like nostalgic a little, who's your Derby pick as well? I mean, my Derby pick, I hate to be boring, but I do think and I never pick Chad, but I do think sandin, it seems relatively obvious to me. If he gets a trip, there's plenty of pace. I do think zozo is interesting, but I think the 19, I don't think the horse can win from on the lead. That said, I don't know if he really needs the lead. So I'm kind of intrigued by him hitting the board. I'm throwing out the Florida race entirely. And if the pace entirely falls apart, I'm thinking zand in modale and I did think a little smile happy, but I hate the way he looks. So maybe a little crown pride as well. So that's a sorry. I'll listen to what you guys have to say. Thanks. We appreciate your call, Seth. All right. So he likes sandin as his top choice in the Derby. He's interested in nostalgic. As a Philly who's kind of under the radar and really has done very little wrong wondering why she's not getting attention. Yeah, I mean, that's a fair point. I said, her last two races were really nice efforts. I think a little bit of it is like there's a little bit of a class concern. Just for the general public. But to me, she's trained well. I've heard other people talking about her. And she's won both dirt starts this year. You can throw out that race on the turf. Yeah, and she's another one who, if they go as fast as a lot of people think they will early on with the Geary and echo Zulu, she should be closing question is, is she good enough to close and beat those good Phillies while holding off these other really good Phillies who are going to be closing like secret oath like Kathleen O like Nas two is the morning line favorite. Let's go back to the phone's Paul in Connecticut. You got Bobby and James on the brisket dot com calling show. Hey guys, I think that Phillips said what I was going to say. So with nostalgic in my logic is backed up a little bit further by in my view that if the track comes up, we don't know how the horse will do on a wet track kind of like we do with the. Now I forget her name, but the bottom line is that there's upside and I'm going with Moe donegal in the next race and they both came out of the same down to wood. And I remember you guys had a call or talk about the times on the day of the wood. And the difference is profound between the two, the Philly and the colt, but I think there's upside with the horse and I didn't want to get into the value part and I did want to ask you a question about modon ago. I don't study these post positions, but if he's kind of a lazy out of the gate horse, isn't that to his advantage coming from the one post? Well, first of all, we appreciate your call, Paul likes nostalgic in the oaks and he likes modon ago in The Kentucky Derby. And he asks a very good question there. The inside post for the most part is considered death when it comes to post position draw in The Kentucky Derby. Ferdinand the last one to win from there. Ferdinand kind of the same running style as Moe donagh or vice versa horses that aren't going to be in the mix early anyway. So if they're not going to be in the mix early, he's already over on the rail. He doesn't have to worry about getting over to save ground. He's almost assuredly saving ground at least around the first turn. Right. He's just got to figure out how to get past 17, 18, 19 other runners possibly in the body of the race. What do you think of a horse like modon ago and his running style drawing that inside post? Well, I mean, I know that he showed in the wood memorial. He loves to save ground. So I thought that was a little bit of a advantage. I mean, I think you could also save ground and not be mired down on the rail. I mean, I think he's going to get the trip. But he's right a little bit in the fact Paul is that if you draw an outside post in your labor, you're running diagonally a little bit at first instead of straight. So it's a little bit of a ground loss factor. If you're going to get to the inside part to be saving ground, I just wonder if even though he's a late runner, I don't want to see him 20th early. I've been saying this about all these labor runners. I'm saying there's like a vantage to horses like sand and even if he could be like 14th or 15th. That's a lot better than me in 1819 or 20. And to me it's a little bit the same thing with modon ago. He doesn't have to be behind happy Jack in every single horse in the field. How far back do you expect Moe donegal to be when they hit the first turn? Well, considering the way he's come out of the gate and stuff, I would say, definitely like ten plus lens. I mean, maybe they're going to be, I mean, everybody's just running hard in that opening quarter mile. So maybe 15 lens. All right, so he's going to have some work to do, but he will be over to the rail. We'll see what kind of trip he gets under irad Ortiz from that inside post. Let's go out to the phones once more. Larry from Philadelphia if you got Bobby and James on the bris net dot com call in show. How's it going?.

"Well, James, we finally get to do the show side by side. I mean, I mean, your backyard or maybe this is your front yard. You can not get much better of a view than where you and I are sitting right now. And explaining to the people we are actually 7 floors up directly above the finish line here at Churchill downs, we're right above the mansion. We're on the same level as track announcer Travis stone NBC announcer Larry Coleman, the stewards, the cameraman, the equibase folks, who do all the charting. And that's it. We have the best view on the track and I think we can make a lot of money selling tickets for this booth for the next few days. We might be able to make 5 figures. I mean, yeah, that seats would like this would go for a pretty, pretty penny. It's a bird's eye view, like you said. Other than maybe being on the roof, like photographers are during the race Derby and oaks. Yeah, it's just spectacular here. And I've never watched the oaks or Derby up here, but I know it would be fantastic. All right, so the phone lines are open, feel free to give us a call 888-966-4776 is the number. James, we've got a lot to go over and obviously anything that anyone wants to talk about is great. Got to meet one of our callers Dave from Chicago. He came by the back stretch this morning and watched the oaks and Derby runners in that dedicated 7 30 to 7 45 time frame. A lot fewer of the runners came out this morning and I think what it was is the crowds are back here at Churchill downs and I know Todd pletcher specifically was not comfortable with the amount of people that were kind of around when oak's favorite nest was getting her bath yesterday morning and not that they're standing milling in through an out the barns, but they're walking on the main roads that are adjacent to the barns. And there's just a lot more people now than there were. So people like pletcher like Steve asthma, like I almost said Bob Baffert, like Tim yak teen, sent out their oaks and Derby, hopefuls earlier than normal today. You know, to get that final jog in. There were still plenty of them that went out in the 7 30 to 7 45 time frame, but less today, you've been able to watch not only these final works, but all these cold skeldings, Phillies, whatever on the track for the better part of the last week, ten days. Has there anything that's really caught your eye good or bad? Let's start with the yolks. Well, you know, as far as the yolks, it's more of like a, there were some of these, you know, the top four in the oaks are easy to identify, but I didn't have a good feel for the underneath a horses. And I think there's been a couple of those that have trained well, namely like, who could run well for Todd Fletcher in her first U.S. star. She's just trained spectacular. And she trained actually with goddess of fire. And every workout person I talked to just said, I mean, she was way better than her. So there's a Philly that's moved up a little bit. Then he Valentine, I've heard a saw her on the track. I thought she looked great. And then I have read two different clockers that are Raven about her. And they're like, hey, the last race, she needs to target, you know, throw that salad in a sense. And she'll run better. But those are kind of horses that, to me, there's a couple as well that I haven't been too impressed by, like secret oath. I'm not really sure about her training, you know? There are all these days off like she didn't like she's had these huge gaps between the works and then he takes her out, he works at 6 for a walk and she doesn't go back to the track for a couple of days. And that's a little bit of a concern for me. You know, it's interesting you mentioned venti Valentine, she's kind of come out, whereas most of them come out as soon as the gap opens at 7 30 and they flood the track for their dedicated 15 minutes. Venti Valentine's more coming out around 7 35. And she comes out on her own and today, you know, they're just two minute licking these other than the ones that actually kind of surprisingly worked yesterday. Most of them are just kind of getting their feet beneath them and stretching their legs and going around the track a few times. Venti Valentine rider on her this morning couldn't get her to drop over to the inside. She looked like she was kind of staying in the middle of the track and she kind of had her head cocked and throwing her head around. So and I asked Jude fell this morning and go, you know, what do you make of that? Is that a bad sign or does that mean she's full of herself and it's a good sign and even he said, you know, it depends what she normally does. It's not necessarily, it's not necessarily bad, but if she's normally not like that, it may be that she's not used to these surroundings or she doesn't love the track compared to maybe where she was, where it could just be a sign of she feels great and she's really full of herself. But she looked a little rambunctious this morning. The other ones, you know, nest is looked phenomenal. Kathleen O, she is not the biggest Philly in the world, but she certainly looks very composed and like nothing bothers her at all. Very classy. She can fill her frame out a little bit. Yeah, I mean, she got real long legs, but her top half is a little bit. I mean, she's going to grow into her body some some more, I would think. Yeah, you look at her and she wouldn't be the pick of the litter. Let's put it that way. If all of these were at the same sale, but boy, for what she is, she looks like she's taking it all in very easily, like nothing distracts her at all. And she's looked good in the morning. And people have questioned her work. She had to work here. She worked with the maiden who was like, oh, for one. And didn't really wow people. But she's a late runner. I don't like be too critical of the late runners. Let's go out to the phones. Tom and St. Louis, you've got Bobby and James on the brisket dot com call in show. Gentlemen, how are you guys the same thing in your great seat?.

"For a few days. Not true. You've become one of my favorite people. I never know what you're going to text me. I laugh several times a day because of you. I love that. Well, we're going to get a chance to catch up with some more Hall of Fame connections on today's show. And that's been the recurring theme over the past couple of mornings. Hall of Famer Mike Smith is going to be with us coming up in just a few minutes right around 8 15 Eastern Time. Hall of Fame jockey John Velasquez will wrap up the show with us right around 9 40. So we bookend today's program with Hall of Fame jockeys in between Jared berdan, who was the general manager at hillendale farms, the sponsor of this particular show, each and every morning and we can't thank them enough. Jared's going to be here at 8 35, 8 50 Byron king from blood horse will share his thoughts on this year's oaks and Derby fields. And then at 9 O 5, Aaron wellman, who is the president and founder of eclipse thoroughbred partners and the co owners of nest the Kentucky oaks favorite will stop by for a visit too. And look, nest has made a wonderful appearance every single time she's been on the track this week. Again, we didn't get a chance to see her this morning because she went out. Well, we were still snoozing. But she is a beautiful, beautiful Philly, and she is going to be a handful for those horses in the oaks. Yeah, she's doing really good every day that we've been out there Bobby and I have been wowed by her and she's very athletic and just has a great temperament so looking forward to watching her run. You know, it's such a strange Kentucky oaks this year. How is it that you have an undefeated two year old champion in echo Zulu who's not one of the first two choices on the morning line? That's how good this field is for the Kentucky oaks. Really wide open. By the way, speaking of the Kentucky oaks dude, I wanted to ask you this. One of the Phillies who was on the track this morning was venti Valentine. And she just looked like she's got her head in another space the last few days. And when she was kind of two minute licking this morning, she was way out in the center of the track and throwing her head around and looked like she was giving the exercise rider really more than he wanted to handle. What do you take when you look at that coming up to these kind of races? Well, there's two things that happen to horses when they get close to running. They either do that type of thing where they get really headstrong because they're needing to run or they go the other way where you think is my horse sick. What's going on? Because they calmed down. I prefer the calmness that really, to me, shows me the horses doing well in his mentally prepared. When they get a little rambunctious, you have to make some adjustments. So tomorrow's the race. So there's not a lot of adjusting to do. It's here. Yeah. It's here to either you're ready or you're not. It's that simple at this point. You're just trying to keep them happy and healthy. When you have this many horses in a race, a big race and a lot of these horses are not used to competing in large fields. And then the stress of training every morning, you know, some of them like to go out in the dark. I mean, maybe she's a horse that actually likes a dark and if you wait till 8 o'clock when it's sunny outside and a lot of horse on the track, I don't know her individually. I know she's a runner. She's very athletic looking. Nice Philly, been running super racist. So hopefully she settles down and shows her breath tomorrow. Yeah, and let's face it, these horses that the preparation for the oaks and for the Derby is done, right? They are just now trying to just ease into the race and make sure that they're on their a game when they finally get to game day coming up tomorrow and on Saturday. Bobby, you were trackside this morning with all the oaks and Derby horses came out. What stood out to you? Anything in particular? Well, zanden has looked phenomenal every day he's been out here and whether he's just enjoying himself and going around the track a couple times in the morning or just kind of trotting bias. I will say this smile happy didn't look great yesterday to me. He looked better today than he did yesterday. He was, he was really getting wet yesterday on what was not a warm morning and doing very little work in getting that way. He wasn't like that today. So if you're a smile happy fan, he looked, he looked significantly better today than he did that. Let's face it, none of them. None of them have looked. Bad. These are some really good three year olds from around the world. I don't know, Jude, we didn't get to see messier today. He's looked as good or better than everyone, the last two mornings, zanden has not turned to Harry. He looks, he's an amazing horse. He goes to a different racetrack everywhere, you know, every race he runs in is somewhere he hasn't been before. And he can't really look better than he's looked. Philly Kathleen knows she's not the most biggest brutish kind of affiliate, but she looked like she was enjoying herself and she looks really calm cool and collected and she broke her maiden on a muddy track sprinting in her debut. I don't know what that means as far as what could be a sloppy track tomorrow here for the oaks, but wet track probably won't bother her and she doesn't seem to be bothered by her new surroundings at all. All right, well, the oaks is tomorrow. You'll hear exclusive radio coverage here on the network four to 60 eastern Bobby Newman will be joined by analyst Dave Friedman to bring you that to our coverage..

"One minute, 44.46 seconds. Welcome back to the equine form presented by twin spires. Once again on this Saturday morning, Kurt Becker had the call of the Ashland stakes at keeneland nest getting the victory that day for ripoli stable, eclipsed by partners and Michael house, nest was one of several horses that were on the racetrack at Churchill downs yesterday as she prepares for the Kentucky oaks 13 days from today. She went for a furlong's 49.80. She galloped out the 5 furlongs in one O 2.60 and Todd putchers barn was busy yesterday morning, including the likes of charge it who was sent out 5 furlongs in one minute .40 and modern ago winner of the wood memorial for furlongs in 50.20 and the man who has been watching all of these workouts and keeping on top of everything and matter of fact he tweets them out on his social media too is Kevin Kirsten, the publicity manager of Churchill downs and he is with me now here on HR N Kevin good morning. Good morning, Mike, how are you? Good, good, happy almost Derby week pre Derby week, I guess. Yeah, 13 days, like you mentioned, it's pretty Derby season is here as you just alluded to with the Todd squad being in town and the facility looks like it's ready for Derby. We've got the tents and the same as porta pods and the infields coming in and so it's looking like Derby around here today thunder over Louisville in the city and so that's really the kick-off to The Kentucky Derby festival. This afternoon. So 13 days away, it's hard to believe it's right around the corner. It's not Derby week until the port of pots arrive, right? 220 of them to be exact. Hey, listen, I told listeners you're on top of things there. If you know the number of porta pots that are showing up, then your insight into the workouts is going to be fantastic. What have we seen over the past couple of days that we mentioned, I just went through a couple of the Todd horses that were out there, but who else have we seen on the racetrack? And is anybody really jumped out at you and caught your eye? You know, it was busy last two mornings, obviously mentioned Todd and a couple of his sources. He worked 5. There would be an oaks contenders yesterday. You mentioned nest and mode Donald and charges. You also had two other Phillies and God is the fire who breathed in company. They had a little bit more of a serious work than the nest did because of how close nests just ranch a Hama. We haven't seen since the UAE oaks and goddess of fire. Of course, running down in Florida in the Florida oaks. And so they had a more serious work. They went 5 eighths, so they've been they've been doing well Todd is going to keep an entire barn here at church without throughout the entire spring and summer. So he has 34 horses about back here right now and are all eyeing Derby week. Of course, an oaks and Derby. We saw cyber knife this morning for trainer Brad Cox. He went three quarters and one 12 and one and company with a horse named cool house and you'll see the video like you mentioned on my social media channel. It was sort of maybe a little bit of an optical illusion because his workmate went 5 eighths, so he galloped out the three quarters of the work they went 5 days. A little bit of an actual illusion, but he worked very well this morning his stable might do those went yesterday morning. There were ten total Derby and oaks contenders that went yesterday morning and doing the math right now in my head. I think there were 6 or 7 this morning. Yesterday, Barbara wrote, he went three quarters, one 16 and changed. We mentioned that the charge it who went with Suzanne 5 eighths in a minute and two fifths. This morning, we went to ojo 59 and two, tis the bomb and smile happy to the bomb actually started about a length back of smile happy who was on his inside. And they finished even at the wire. I don't think he necessarily meant to start that length back, but they both went well together minute one minute and two for the bomb smile happy venti Valentine for Jorge abru. 47 and one out a minute and one nostalgic for Bill Mott went 48 and four out of one O two and then hitting connection with regular Gutierrez had a more serious work. She went 5 eighths and a minute and three out one 13 and one all smiles for ray Luke Gutierrez and connection said that she's ready to go. It would be a fun Kentucky oaks Mike even a better Kentucky Derby tomorrow. We'll see at the center of the likely favorite breeze early first thing tomorrow morning and as well as top oaks contender echoes of those lots happening here at Churchill downs horses are converging here at the track and we'll have them all here by the draw day on Monday by noon of Derby week. So I have to feel that I think is here, but now for both yields from the Derby. And you mentioned your social media page, Kevin, that's horse racing KK on Twitter. So at horse racing KK and there are videos that you post of the workouts, there are all the updates in terms of the times and all those things. It's a really wonderful resource for people if they want to keep up to date on everything happening with the oaks and Derby horses. We saw stakes winner at Keenan this morning. You have that tweet out there. It won't be his final work, but he's closing in on that final work and he's a horse that a lot of people are buzzing about right now. Yeah, absolutely. And just seconds ago, I got a text on my phone that xan Don actually ships over to Churchill down tomorrow and so we'll probably see him back on the track Monday morning. And of course, that Kentucky Derby, Kentucky oaks, window for training that we've all been familiar to over the recent years, 7 30 to 7 45 a.m. each morning that started this morning, but Monday, the official Kentucky Derby morning work show will start, we'll be able to follow that on The Kentucky Derby social media channels YouTube as well as Kentucky Derby dot com. So I think in Monday, you'll probably get your first glimpse of zan Don after he worked this morning over at keenland here at Churchill downs. What are some of the things Kevin that you're watching for when the oaks and Derby horses come to the track, whether they're working or just galloping, what are some of the things you're hoping to pick up on to kind of lead you in the right direction on game day? You know, it's sort of interesting. In more recent years last year, we saw how well a horse like mandolin was doing just thriving in the mornings and really working well, but also galloping well. And so, and he showed that after his sort of enigmatic finish and the Louisiana Derby and then came back and rallied to of course trust the wire second in The Kentucky Derby. So, you know, all these horses should work well because they're very talented horses, both oaks and Derby contenders. So you're probably going to see these sources of times maybe a little bit fast and they're moving well over the track. But the important thing for me is how they do out of these works and in their gallops in the preceding days. And so cyber and I this morning he had a huge Gallup out in one 12 and one 25 I think was the 7 8th time and out of mile and one 39 or so. And so I'm really going to see how it comes back to the track Monday to see how he handled that work as most serious work and next weekend it's only going to be 7 days or 8 days out when most of the sources are working for the Derby. So they're not going to do a whole lot next weekend. This is the most serious works that we see two weeks out leading into the Derby. So tomorrow like epicenter is supposed to work and you usually see in a Steve assets and workout pattern that he's going to have a pretty serious phytates work tomorrow and so if he does that time and he's a pretty serious on the track, I want to see how he comes out of it and the day is to see if it really took out any energy or if he's still bouncing over the track just as well as you did in the work. Had some anxious moments this past week with crown pride, the Japanese horse who has been there for a long time. I want you to talk about him for a minute and what you've seen from him. And then update us on what happened this past week. Yeah, you know, it's very interesting. We've seen crown pride actually here one of the first contenders to arrive on the ground. He came back after winning the UAE Derby on March 26th. He then flew over with all the horses that were coming from North America to Dubai and coming back..

"Is now up to 6, but with an awful lot to do as they hit the top of the stretch. Three quarters went in one 11 and two. It is early voting, trying to take them wire to wire here early voting in front, Moe donegal comes on throw down on the inside to grab second. It is early voting in front, a challenge here from Moe Donna go early voting trying to hold on with a 16th of that finish. Moda go bearing down on the outside. It's mowed down and go at early voting and it is Moe done. Moda go won the rem sit here as a two year old and he comes back to win today's 97th running of the wood memorial. So modena winning the wood memorial stakes in, you know, after his last effort, I think this was a very, very worthy representative effort of his ability. Certainly stamps him as a contender. You win the wood memorial, people are going to think of you as a contender. And I thought this was a lot of talk after the race about the ride up by Joel Rosario and how great it was. And my initial instinct watching the replay back the first time because I'm bad about, you know, when I watch a race live, I'm watching, you know, just kind of watching the races as a fan and curious and all that. I'm going to be a little more watching it with my more critical expert podcast I after the fact. But oh, I forgot to rant about keelan. I'll do that in a second. Maybe I'll do that at the end. Save it for the end. But anyway, so mo donegal. Literally my Monday night, it's like I have rant about my annual rant about Keenan. Anyways, but moda gets the win for Joel Rosario, but I watched it again the second time and I go, okay, why was this a great ride? And my initial reaction was kind of like, I feel like people are over hyping. The horse did the work and won the race. And I think where people are coming from. Because there wasn't like to me a definitive move. But what there was was a series of, I think just, you know, smart decisions. And I think that gets amplified a little bit because each decision seemed to work out. At no point did he really get stopped or stymied, he went down to the inside, he saved ground. He went inside of I believe it was golden code at the top of the stretch. No, who was it? AP secret. He went inside of AP secret and at that point it could have gotten a little tight form, but he got past AP secret quick enough to where he then had room to kick out and get the win. And so the more I watched it, the less I thought great ride, the more I thought good, right, which is just totally splitting hair is probably, and so, I don't know. I just didn't see a definitive move, but I saw a series of smart decisions that worked out. And maybe that is truly what is representative of a great ride. I'm not a good judge of writers in general. And so, you know, I'm not going to hold it against anybody that said it was a great ride or anybody but it's an average ride, whatever. I mean, that's your opinion. It was a winning ride. We know that much. And early voting, I thought Jose Ortiz put on a wedding ride, set the fraction, so I thought he was maybe, you know, I know that moda was coming off not the best effort and maybe he needed to kind of stamp himself, but I thought early voting proved a lot of doubters wrong just because, you know, his last race didn't come back all that fast. Speed figure wise and all that stuff. And yeah, he got caught late, but I thought he ran a pretty damn representative good race. Now he's not going to be a length in front in The Kentucky Derby, but actually, you know, the pace scenarios change because it was announced forbidden kingdom is not going. It's announced that classic causeways not going. And so I feel like two of the primary logical pace setters are now not there. Simplification obviously can go early and epicenter is a major, major early factor. I feel like things kept getting better for epicenter with those scratches and early voting. I don't know where he's going to fit on that patient are very curious to see when the optics plot comes out. And you know, I know we over analyzed The Kentucky Derby like by a hundred fold, but you know, it's part of the part of the gig. So we got to do it, but yeah. After the wood memorial was the Carter and it was a speaker's corner who was absolutely insanely good, winning this race. It's funny because he was bet so heavily in his debut at Saratoga, and he ran fine, but he wasn't that impressive. He got in a little bit of a bad start. But three to 5 in a maiden special way to Saratoga, like word was out, right? And then he comes back and dusts him at two to one, beats cattle river in his maiden race at Belmont. They tried the Pennsylvania Derby, as we said, no, no problem with that, but I mean, he just really came to hand this winter and now he's just throwing up stupid speed figure numbers. I think he had a one 14 buyer, haven't seen the bridge yet, but I'm sure it is in the high. The high at the high stratosphere of horses. And, you know, he just completely blew their doors off. Reinvestment risk who he was up there with early on actually ended up staying up for seconds. I mean, nobody ran on from the back. It was not a complete merry go round, but not that far from one. Green light go, I guess, was a little bit close up there for a second. Before fading, but yeah, monster effort in the Carter for that one. And then later on, the final race of the card, the gazelle stakes. No, not the final race, but oh God, they went, it was so weird because they ran the wood kind of early, and so I remember thinking, oh, the day's over, but then they just kept coming, but nostalgic, Jose Ortiz rallying from off the pace and Jose would have a good second part of this card for Bill Mott winning that race catching venti Valentine who again loose on the lead at even money and just could not quite finish the job. Jose is also one with wit in the bay shore stakes coming off the layoff hadn't been seen since Belmont last fall got up in the last jump to beat highly respected who kind of kicked away there in mid stretch for Chad Brown, but Jose and Todd Fletcher able to get them at the final jump. What did they do 18, 19 million, I guess, for racing in aqueduct on a Saturday. A distant second tequila, though, man, keenland just had a big, big day. City man, Joel Rosario scoring for Christophe Clement in the dangers hour. We didn't really talk about that race. I didn't look at it much to be honest. I did want to talk about the early pick 5 sequence, always love watching those races just always love that sequence in general. And you know, you had a tiny upset a third choice winner in the second or the first leg, but I thought a big upset in the scope of the early pick 5 because there was two legs that looked either very chalky or a real logical top too and the second race was one of them and this was a little bit of an optics play for me just because I thought world gone wild look like potentially the speed of the speed, along with the one, but drawn to that one's outside. I thought it was gonna sit a good trip while instead, you know, got the lead and you can even see the comment on the one horse is beaten to the lead got to the inside and Ruben silvera and world gone wild just able to kick clear at almost 14 to one. It was a really, really impressive effort. Third race you get a 5 to one beat one of the favorites and then giggle factory in the fourth race the allowance, this was like a classic New York walkathon up front. 24 and four, 50 and two. Long shot who last ran at Tampa, shout out Tampa. And just kind of nobody took a run up. There was a favorite entry for Chad Brown. There was a Clement horse that looked pretty good. The three horse elara who was first time locally Clement had another horse in their timeless journey, but I mean, just nobody put any pressure on giggle factory, just able to walk up front. And then the last race, search results gets beat in the distaff. By glass ceiling, who I said, on Thursday's show, you know, you're playing a horse off a layoff can be short priced, like both the 6 and the 5 were coming in with three straight wins and incredibly good form and they run one too. And it wasn't even close..

"By Sunday silence he would go on to win The Kentucky Derby not as the favorite defeating the favorite easy goer that day. In fact, he would defeat easy goer three of the four times that they matched up. Welcome back to the weekend stakes preview presented by naira bets, Bobby Newman, Dave Friedman, getting through a lot of great races on the Saturday afternoon cards from around the country. We've got two more to look at over an aqueduct Dave and let's start with their tenth race on tomorrow's card. It is the grade three gazelle for three year old Phillies going a mile and an 8th on the main track. Nice field of 8 going to post here in the 7 to 5 favorite on the morning line is number 5 venti Valentine. Yeah, and you can't really knock venti Valentine gives you an a effort every time. And then last time out off the layoff in March was just tremendous, blowing out for other horses clearly the best race of venti Valentine's career posting a good fig, a good final time and very, very impressive. At 7 to 5, this is a horse that was not legally bred. And I'm wondering if there's a price out there to be had venti Valentine is never gone off at less than 7 to two before and it's going to be the favorite in here. I'm wondering what the pace scenario is going to look like. I think venti Valentine could end up close to the pace. There's not a ton of speed in here grated two number two for Todd pletcher. Maybe we'll be the pace setter. The horse I wound up on was classy edition first going to turns for Todd pletcher. One is first three races or one her first three races. Those were all in state bred races in New York, then went to Gulfstream park last time out and ran up against maybe the best three year old Philly in the country this year and ran a credible second and I think classic edition fits really nicely. I see no reason why stretching out is going to be a problem. She's by classic empire who himself was very good around two turns out of a bernardini mayor, so I agree with that assessment. I agree with classy edition as well. I put her on top. I don't think she lays over this field. I think she's as good as venti Valentine. You can probably take even money on venti Valentine or about 5 to two, three to one on classy edition, partly because she hasn't been around two turns and because she is in New York bread facing elders. Now venti Valentine is also a New York bread facing open company I should say. But she's done that twice already, whereas classy editions only done it once. Let's face it, they both run very well against open company. We also just give a shout out to the New York breads because they've shown it's not even just recently, but it's gotten even more pronounced recently. How good the New York breads are and how they more can more than can hold their own when they face open company. So we've got two very, very good New York bread Phillies here who are probably going to be one, two in the bedding in this edition of the gazelle. Number 5 venti Valentine, number 6 classy edition, Dave and I both leaning to the 6 classy edition who should be a slightly better price of the two. 11th race tomorrow at aqueduct is the grade three bay shore, three year old's gonna sprint 7 furlongs here, $200,000 is the purse. We've got a field of ten going to post. Dave, I don't know about you, but this was the one of the more head scratching type of races to handicap for me. The morning line favorite is the Todd pletcher trainee witt, who we have not seen since running in the champagne last year at Belmont. This is a horse who started off his career like gangbusters, slow out of the gate, still winning by 6 in his debut, then winning by 8 in the grade three Sanford, and having some trouble, but still running credible races in both the hopeful and the champagne. Question is, what are we going to get from wit off this long layoff and do you think his gate issues are behind him? Well, I don't know how we can possibly answer that question. I mean, you would think that pletcher is as good as anybody and he's now had a whole bunch of times since running on October 2nd to now running at the beginning of April to try to deal with those issues, but whether it has taken to that or not, no real way of knowing. I don't think this is a very good grade three field. I was looking, actually, I spent more time than I would like to admit trying to find someone to beat who looks very, very susceptible and vulnerable as a horse who hasn't run a long time who can run himself into trouble. And I just don't love everyone else in here. Number 6 highly respected for Chad Brown and. This is not one of those really expensive horses who had huge hype behind them. Certainly went out and ran a really good race at debut at aqueduct in February, solid time of that race and beat probably a so, so sort of field, but now stepping up to face graded stakes courses. Number 5 dean's list and number ten, life is great. Both put together decent races against Morello. Now, weren't particularly close, but solid credible races. I just feel like if Whit comes back as a three year old and has taken the steps forward that you would expect him to, you're going to see a horse that's really tough to beat in this spot. I kind of pick wit out a process of elimination. There's no one else I want to get excited about. Okay, so Dave's going to go with the favorite wit two to one on the morning line. I went to that trainee that you mentioned highly respected who wasn't real respected in his debut as he was 7 to one, but I got up to win going away by almost a length and a half covering 6 furlongs on a track rated good in one O 9 and three to be perfectly honest. I think if he runs the same type of race tomorrow in the bay shore that he did in his maiden race he has a chance. And maybe he'll be even better. Second time out he's four to one on the morning line. I think mainly because he hasn't faced the competition that wit and dean's list and some of the others already have. Highly respected for me, wit for Dave in the bay shore race 11 on a power packed aqueduct card tomorrow. Let's fly out to the West Coast Dave. They've also got a multi stakes program on tap tomorrow, including two big races for the three year olds. We'll start with the Phillies race number four, the grade two Santa Anita oaks, mile and a 16th on the main track just a field of 5 and we've got a couple of former Bob Baffert trainees now in the barn of Tim yak teen under the stars and a dare manner who are likely going to be the two favorites in the race..

"I'd do the post parade and then I could learn our horses when they're on the track and then it made for the announcer slash podcaster available to catch everything. But I did watch San Anita once I got home, especially the latter parts of the car. So we'll talk more about that on tomorrow show. So aqueduct, the Tom fool and the Gotham and the bush are all part of the big program. The Tom fool early on in the day. They ran it as the third race. I remember back in the early mid 2000s like aqueduct used to always or not Akron, I've just naira period. They would always run like a good quality race in the third. It would be like, you know, a maiden race to kick it off or a cheap claimer or something like that. But then the third race was almost like a good allowance or something like that. I don't know why that always sticks in my head, but I just remember that. But they had the Tom fools their race and officiating, coming from off pace beating the heavy favorite chateau, the rob actress runner, safi Joseph junior, scoring with Manny Franco, a open links, like they were really strung out. I know the aqueduct surface it seems like the general consensus has been, it's a bit of a tiring surface right now and just, you know, maybe you're not going to get fast times, but you're also, I think tiring surfaces just lead to more strung out fields just because once the horses are done, they're just done. The bush stakes end up being a strong field because venti Valentine just crushed them radio days did not fire at all, man. I couldn't have been more wrong about that. I was just real high on that horse and I saw David aragone even tweeted before that race happened there. He's like, boy, I don't get it on read it is. I'm like, well, David, all the fish like me like him, so something must be good. Sure enough. The sharp guy was wrong. It was right in the dumb guy was wrong, so kudos to David. I was respect David's work and he was right on venti Valentine. The next 5 to one winner of the bush are in the Gotham stakes. Now, I actually pulled audio for the Gotham, but my audio puller thing was like not converting to MP3s right. So I'm having to abandon that. So you will not hear John embryo's call of Morello. Winning from just off the pace, you know, got away pretty good from the outside kind of slowly crept up into things as dean's list went out and set the pace and then just pounced on him and gradually pulled away. He just he just seems to be a little better than this crew. That he's facing in New York right now. And he certainly got a little bit upside, right? He's perfect three for three. They've all kind of come in pretty, you know, pretty ideal stocking type trips, but it's hard to ask more of a horse than just a consistently go out and win by four lengths, which he's done. Every time he won by four, what he wanted by four and they opened four and four and a quarter 5 and now four and a half. So it's really hard to knock those kind of horses. Out foxed, I try not to be too much of a speed figure guy, but out foxed in that race at Gulfstream. You know, I looked on paper and she just looked not as fast speed figure wise. And I know that they can vary from track to track, speed for your speed figure and all that kind of stuff, but sometimes there is something about a horse just not being fast enough, but I don't think that's the case with Morello. I think he's, you know, I mean, I know he hasn't been beating up on maybe top tier talent as of yet, and certainly the risen star and the fountain of youth and those are probably deeper preps, but it's hard to knock for me what Morello's doing. Jose luska and a Steve has been pointless Kano had the weirdest ride on Sunday. If you go watch the first race, it's late Sunday now and people were talking about it online. I haven't seen any interviews or quotes or what happened, but he's on a horse, it's a cheap kind of maiden race, I believe. I only look at the form for two seconds on this race, but you know, looked like speed type or horse that wanted to be on or close to lady breaks beautifully. Immediately grabs a hold, that's two others going, okay, you know, maybe they wanted, they didn't want to leave for whatever reason. But then he starts gliding up next to him and he's just under a hammer lock, like totally just not asking the horse at all. And then when he gets even with him, he starts looking to the inside, like, over and over again. And then Trevor McCarthy comes up to his outside, heads him, and then he starts riding and he gets beat ahead. If that, like, it ended up being a pretty close margin. And he spotted the horse probably a half length or so at one point in mid stretch. But it looked not great. Whether it was fishy or whether it was stupidity is I guess the question. I can certainly entertain arguments for both. And people were arguing for both. Some people were saying, look, it's nothing fishy going on and it's just, you know, the looking over constantly. I don't know if he thought he dropped someone or if maybe he just thought that was his all of his competition. He was leaving him in the dust. I won't. I'll never understand, though, like in a cheap type horse race, even if you're kind of easing away at the top of the street. He was even with those horse at the top of the stretch. This isn't like, you know, a grade one horse that's one to 9. It's a two to one shot in a cheap maiden race. At that point, you kind of need to be riding, right? Like almost no matter what. If you're even at the top of the stretch with your competition, even if you're edging by them, you need to be riding at that point. So I'm real curious to hear if anybody talks to him or asks him or if he faces suspension because obviously the suspension if it's a fixed ride is way, way more severe than if it's a boneheaded ride, but to the better is the accountability part is kind of the same, right? Like your result is the same. He ran second. And if you had that horse to win, I'd be infuriated whether it was intentional or just dumb. I'd still be infuriated. And you know, again, it just goes back to that thing. Even if it's just a dumb ride, it just looks so bad..

"Watch. Go follow David. Great guy, big fan. He's made glider 8 to one. He made favoritism toward the outside with Morello out in post 9 three to one. You have 7 O two for dean's list and Manny Franco and a four to one Rockefeller toward the outside Morello obviously has been very, very impressive in a couple of starts. First time stretching out to a mile, which aqueduct on the outer track is just the one turn, right? Boy, I hope I ride on that before. It's kind of funny that they still at this point are only running a mile. Prep. It feels like it should be longer, but I guess they didn't even run a mile 16th at aqueduct. I don't think they do. So maybe it's just kind of stuck that way. But Morello just been super impressive in those first couple of starts raided in both of them nicely set off. Kind of had, you know, nice in behind trips, but covered a lot of ground last time in the week feel was just much the best. And life is great, not life is good, but life is great, also in here with second that day. But I wanted to mention glider just because we saw this horse at Tampa and was beaten by Emanuel who, as I said earlier in the fountain of youth, I'm really high on, but this was the one we can wear, I thought Tampa's course was somewhat biased. It seemed like the rail was very dead. And horses would start making moves they jumped out of the rail and they'd stop making moves. And I saw a lot of that that weekend renter brothers and I remember talking about it during the car and it's just like, God, horses that look like they're going to rally up the rail and win are just kind of stopping. And glider was chasing inside and Emmanuel stayed out in the three path because I think Emmanuel's writer realized that I think it was Pablo Morales who was writing. Realized that you don't want to be down inside. And so the fact that this one stayed down there lost ground Emanuel late, but still ran pretty good. And interestingly enough, Antonio Gallardo was going to go up and ride for Mark Cassie. In this race, obviously, Antonio based down here at Tampa and I don't know, I'm really excited to see what this horse could do because I thought that was first of all, like I said, I'm banking that emmanuelle is very good. And so that also makes me kind of think that maybe glider is pretty good, but this is a this is a fun prep honestly for you. I feel like the New York prep sometimes feel like they're a little bit short. At least with interest from me just because the aqueduct so many of the top guys are down at Gulfstream. But with Rockefeller coming out here for baffert, Morello, who's been sensational, I mean, even horses like bull journey for Bill Mott, you know, second in the Gander after kind of opening up last time out. I mean, there's just a lot of interesting horses in this race and a lot of upside dean's list perfect two for two for pletcher down at Gulfstream. He's obviously got, you know, he's going to want to spread out his hand a little bit. Ray handel has from another mother too, who is a nice winner last time out against maidens, but handles on fire in aqueduct this meet. 14 for 63, 22%, go ray. I want to say we had rayon 2019. I think I was at Monmouth when we had him on. I mentioned earlier radio days who was coming out of that forward Gallup Gulf Stream, and she is showing up here in the busher, which also a one turn mile race, which the four were gal was as well. And she kind of just got away not great. There's no comment on it. She was just far back in a race where 7 furlongs they were going and honest clip, but the horse up front was just cruising. And she wasn't able to run that one down, but she took a serious run at her. I think this is actually a really good horse. In radio days. And she gets back to New York too. I mean, Gulf Stream is always a little bit peculiar, but she ran perfectly fine. She just didn't catch a loose on the lead horse. Dylan Davis went down there to ride that race. I think he's obviously very high on the horse. They spent a ton of money for radio days. And so it makes sense that the horse would be talented and obviously comes from very, very good connections. Venti Valentine, who was so good behind nest in that demoiselle stakes nest obviously came back to win at Tampa a couple of weeks ago in I should know the race I called the damn thing. What is it called? Holy crap. The sun coast. Boy, don't let my bosses hear that I forgot the name of the sun coast stakes. But validate that race. The sun goes in a top top field. Certainly I don't think some of the talent that venti Valentine would is going to see here. So I don't know how much you like move nest up off that wind. I thought it was very workman like. And we haven't seen venti Valentine. We're still in that phase where, for some of these horses, we're seeing them for the first time as three year olds. Sterling silver was one of the New York prince I was mentioning earlier on in the show as well. I mean, very humble beginnings of $13,000 purchase. One made in special weight state bread and then $100,000 the Franklin square for Trevor McCarthy and Trevor and time albertrani, going to try their luck in the bush here against the open company here. So that is just a quick little preview of so much that's going on. Like I said, we had to skip around a little bit because there's just, there's just too much. I didn't have a chance to look at all of it to be Frank. And we'll certainly try our best to recap as much of it as we can on Monday. That will most likely drip into Tuesday, but big weekends. This is such a great time of the year for, you know, all the Derby lead up oaks lead up like that stuff's all fun, but what comes along with those is good cards and good racing and fountain of youth. I was thinking back my favorite fountain of youth is 2004, the saint Valentine's Day massacre, it was dubbed, which is probably a little bit of an extreme name for a horse race. But it was on Valentine's Day and read the footnotes and 2nd of June, man. They hooked up real early, not early, but early in the drive and they just went ahead and had the whole way down the lane and it was real memorable stretch call. There used to be video of it on YouTube and I looked around and the old video that used to be up there was no longer up there and so you can't seem to. You can't seem to find it so if you can find it out there if you know where to watch the 2004 found of youth watch it because it is a awesome race. But real big thank you to you guys for tuning in this week as always you guys are just the best so appreciate you guys listening to our show. Big thanks to Darren Rogers yesterday Danny Gibson who joined us back on Tuesday. We will have some new guests next week, maybe old guests. I haven't done any booking yet..

"And you know, it's that distance around too. It's a my own 8th, so they figure to get a little bit tired to me, but it was just a lot of 25, 25, 25 and three, 25 flat, 25 and two, and 13.74, which is on pace, of course, for plus 27. If they would have kept going. So again, not the prettiest addition of this race and nest all out to beat venti Valentine, who I kind of thought venti Valentine was a little bit interesting in this race. Obviously very lightly raced for a Brady and Johnny V, but in a good effort. These races are funny because I know that we love to discount the remson and there's all the jokes. It's not like it hasn't been a productive race. It just seems like every time they come back, they get a high speed figure, they get over betting their next start and then they get beat. That just seems to be a little bit of the pattern. But I read Ortiz and nest scoring in the demoiselles. In the ramps and betts certainly is a two horse race as an ends up going off your slight favorite modale motor was like two to one, I think, a little bit before they went into the gate. So obviously the odds kind of came back to reality, but those two very much bet as though it was a two horse race and it certainly turned out to be such. Let's take a listen back to Johnny eyes call of the remson stakes from aqueduct. And they're off in the ramzan from another mother is going out for the early aid. Mo dono is down at the rail, who that's me. And on the outside, it is a midnight a chrome along with a zandan. The two year old colts go into the Clubhouse turn from another mother is challenged here by midnight chrome from another mother holding on to the lead by three quarters of a length midnight chrome runs in second. Zanden on the outside runs in third modon is down at the rail next and fourth, who that's me next then 5th. Mister Jefferson is sex that's three likes to a judge Davis and three more to eloquence who trails the field in 8th and the opening quarter mile 25 seconds. From another mother leads here by a half length midnight chrome in second zanden, his next and third with O'Donnell down at the rail. Then it is mister Jefferson and who that's me as they race midway up the back stretch from another mother, three quarters of a length, half mile posted in 51 and two from another mother is the leader. Midnight chrome is next in second. Modale and zand and the two favorites are right together third and fourth. Then mister Jefferson and who that's me father back judge Davis and the trailer is eloquence as the field goes around the far turn from another mother narrowly midnight chrome now moves over alongside. It is midnight chrome on the outside from another mother down at the rail. Now Xander begins to pick it up far outside as mister Jefferson, modon is in behind horses, then who that's me and judge Davis, the field is at the top of the stretch. Here's mister Jefferson. Here's zanden on the tram outside his Moe Donna called who's coming on now. Here is Moe Donna go to take the lead from Xander inside the 8th pole. Zanden battles on, modal on the outside. It's mow down ago and..

"Greatness. And it seems like at that top level, kind of horse come back into form, of course. I mean, yeah, but it just seems like he's not quite fire and what he used to. He used to fire some big shots. You know, back in 2019 and I guess even into 2020, but it just doesn't seem like those shots are fired. I mean, that is one that he wanted. He was supposed to win and he was much the best in there. And I guess he wasn't, he wasn't ashamed in the Woodward stakes, and when he ran fine, but it was a smallish field. I don't know. I just think he's just on the other side of his peak, which in a grade one race. I don't know that you can, can you win a grade one race even a week one if you're not at or close to your best? I'm sure it's been done, but I would think that you have up and comer types. I mean, obviously independent calls coming off the big race J nobly is a better horse than he's ever been. Following C is very, very good. Following C did not show up well on the optics plot. And that was concerning to me. As someone who uses that software and appreciates it, but it's also a red plot fit, which means that it's just the numbers or whatever do not it's not a good. One thing I really appreciate that optics does for this is they literally tell you when it's not maybe a great plot when it's not a race that has all the information or produces what they think is a good plot. I appreciate that about him. We talked a little bit about what we've talked about that over the years. Like, you know, picking your spots, knowing your spots are doing all that. Like you don't have to play every race. You so don't. Obviously, if you're gonna play the late pick 5 or late pick four late double or whatever, this race is a part of it, but, you know, you don't have to play. Every race. I think that one of my biggest weaknesses is a younger man was that idea of the long game. I had zero concept of that. Everything was based on right now how I'm doing for the day right now. You know, what I'm doing, am I down a 150? Am I down 200? I got to get that back. Even if the last race was a race that, you know, sometimes you'll run into a track where a lot of tracks they, of course, save their biggest or best races for last. But sometimes you'll have a track where the last race is just kind of a stinker, right? But if I was down, I would bet that, as though I had to get that money back, instead of really just treating it as I would, you know, on the races merit and on my opinions mayor, which a lot of times would have been go home. But that was just such a big weakness of mine and it's something that an age I'm sure this is the case for lots of people too. I think you start to realize the long game idea of things. And I don't know. It makes I think it makes saying no to a race, a sequence a day, a lot easier. But again, I don't know how you I think you kind of have that or you develop it, but I don't know how you specifically develop it because I mean, I have an action gene, right? I need action. I'm actually Jackson. And so turning that off and being more disciplined, I think is not an easy thing for a lot of people. And so I think to be aware of as you're playing, you know, are you playing the upcoming race because you just want to play a race or are you playing it because you have a good opinion or like the sequence. I would ask you to think about those things as you look at the race, but as I say in the cigar mile, I really did like following CE and I do like following see. I guess I was a little bit turned off by how he shows up on the optics plot. Now it's just one piece of software. It's something that I use in value and have trusted in terms of the results. But, you know, there's also times where I'm like, well, I just think this horse is better for this reason or whatever. So I'm kind of curious to see how it plays out just as a comparison of that. Of course, part of the aqueduct Saturday program. The demoiselle, and the remson, and I thought, to me, both of these races kind of look like they have not the top end superstars, I guess, which makes sense, right? Like this race is about a month after the breeders cup, a lot of the better ones, especially with the travel out west. Maybe they're just going to wait until the holy bowl and those type of races give everybody a little bit of time off. But I just for some reason it just seems like this year in particular maybe I'm wrong on this. I'm not going back and looking, but it just seems like it's a very lightly raced group in terms of a lot of the headliners in the demoiselle. Nest is a morning line favorite was a nice debut winner at Belmont, came back in the tempted at Belmont on breeders cup weekend and ran a decent third was making up ground at the end just kind of ran out of room. Tap the faith was a nice winter for Christoph clot first time out at Belmont on November 7th. You just have a lot of these horses who have made one or two or three starts. In fact, I think 5 is the most of anybody in that misinterpret down on the inside for Todd Fletcher, who won the PG Johnson and then was finished pretty badly in the alcibiades, the comet even just says never involved. But that was first time two turns first time, graded stakes, like, you know, I think there's reason to, especially when you get that far back, like it's just hard to kind of get going, I guess. That was that race sequence kind of looped up and ran on for third Jude's map and distinctly possible where one two there. I don't know. I guess I could be a little forgiving on that race. To me, misinterpret was kind of one of the interesting ones in the demoiselle, but there's so much upside for all the other horses. It's not a race that I I'll be honest. I didn't find the late sequence here, particularly interesting, not from a, I'm not excited to see who wins. And I just didn't have any sense for it. Who might move forward who's the best, venti Valentine, of course, been running against state bread runners? Obviously, this is different with the open company. Nostalgic for Bill Mott was a huge maiden winner. Didn't get the biggest of figures that day, but was very impressive doing it. I mentioned nest and tap the faith came from off the pace to win, going to mile at Belmont on debut. Magic circle's been pretty decent was second in that tempted state beaten nest after kind of a well beaten effort in the fris, but was well beaten by echo Zulu who would be one to a thousand, not one to a thousand, but would be short price odds on more than that. Like one to 5 or two to 5. So, you know, there's certainly a lot of contenders..

"Saw Alan Schneider who had the show wacky goes, oh, big brother must be proud, and I looked up and the mayor was delightful quality and I'm like, oh, wow, okay. Well, horse was a good second on debut. And then this time at two to 5, just completely jogged. So obviously he's going to but but the thing is is it's like, you know, how aspics and goes is kind of how Ricardo's going to go. But the O four 81, it just seems unreal. Jose Ortiz was only one for 23. So he had not the greatest Keenan meat Velasquez, Johnny V two for 23. Colby Hernandez two 31. I feel like both Colby's wins were stakes races, though. I might be wrong on that, but I think that's the case. That always helps. But oh for 81. That's just, I know it's the longest ever, I think he had even tweeted this out like it's the most futile keelan meat by a rider that you know that we could find. What do you put? Yeah. The worst ducks at keenland, oh for a James Graham had a one for 81. And he also had an O for 63. I remember there was a little period there where James Graham would always be really bad at keenland. But, man, and I don't want to beat up on him, but it's just, it's like I said, it almost defies the laws of how cold a rider can go. Especially considering it's not like he's riding long shots. I mean, there's a lot of 5 to ones and two to ones and shorter. And some longer obviously, but it's truly an incredible thing. Like I said, I don't mean to, you know, Ricardo's fine. You know, we don't need to feel bad for Ricardo, but man, I mean, that is just a. It's a incredible achievement of futility. I mean, again, I know that's a harsh word, but it's just unbelievable. And hope he gets out of it. You know, I don't know him at all, but certainly never done nothing to me and I, you know, wish him the best. Going to be really interesting to see, you know, I'm going to ask some top flight type horses coming into the breeders cup. It's going to be interesting to see if, you know, if this is going to have any effect on Ricardo and it's like I said, Steve's ice cold too. His horse is obviously rented other tracks, so he's not just at keenland, but I mean, what did he go one for 57? I mean, that's pretty tough. Cox went 14 for 49, 29%. Wesley ward 34% of keyword for the meat. Fausto Gutierrez is two for 7. That's not two for seven's not quite as crazy if a 29% as 14 for 49. You know, you can win two races at a short period of time, and it helps when you have the truth in your part. He had another horse his other winner was a real nice one. You know, a lot of times races run together, but I specifically remember his other one being a pretty good one. Over to Belmont park real quick, we do want to talk about empire classic day and the empire class itself going to American Revolution in a crazy good performance drew off as the two to 5 favorite and you're supposed to win. They bet mister buff down to 6 to one and he got eased. You know, I don't know if he's retiring or if they're going to keep running him or not, but obviously his best days are behind him and such a cool horse, but I'm shocked that he was even bent down the second choice just given the form that he's kind of kept as of recently. But American Revolution on the other hand is his form has been pretty incredible any stretched out so nicely and just continues to get better and better, and I think he had a 108 buyer speed figure number for this win. It was big. And, you know, he is he's winning a state bred race here, but I have a feeling his future might be beyond state bread ranks. I don't think that's even remotely hot taking your controversial considering he was just third beaten by 6 lengths by hot rod Charlie, but you know, he had been sensational in a couple starts against a breads. They tried the Pennsylvania, like I said, he did not shame himself at all. And I just have to think that they're going to try. I mean, you can make so much money though as a good New York bread, so I gotta think they'll pick and choose their spots around that state bread steaks schedule because he can clearly make piles of dough. I mean he made a 165,000 for winning the empire classic. That's probably enough for his entire training career. I know they paid 275 grand, but just the training part of things, even if it's, you know, 40 grand a year. I don't know what Todd Fletcher trains, maybe he's 50 grand a year, but that takes up three years of training form that he made this afternoon. And he's made now 500,000. So I mean, he's certainly paid for himself and from here on out. It's just sugar. And so we'll see what happens with him but he is very, very nice New York bread and really, really impressive win. Bit of an upset in the distaff the almost an emerald to staff. The empire to staff ice princess made the ice princess was kind of who I liked in the race even though it was the favorite, just from a wind perspective and looked like turning for home was going to run away with it and then all of a sudden sharp star and Jose Ortiz come out of the pack and 16 to one upset. When there was a couple of nice long shot runs throughout the day, we talked about how sometimes he stated days can chalk out a little bit. Venti Valentine won the maid of the mist coming from off the pace, but a couple of horses who were way off the pace, big long shots, captain's daughter, and dufresne rallying up for second. Third, sandy's garden was that finger Lake's horse I told you that it had kind of a lot of buzz and broke to the lead and I just, you know, obviously the company was deeper here. But it just seemed like going to the front was not the greatest thing, but we saw the Iroquois one going gate to wire by the important one, so maybe it wasn't that. You know, I just it just seemed like for a good chunk of the day there was a decent flow of off the pace, closer types. There was a maintenance special way to early in the card candy Monet that came from way way out of the clouds. There was a couple I thought trip horses in that fourth race. It was a maiden special weight. The 12 submarine who was coming over from Prairie Meadows for Steve asthma, actually, of all things. Kind of broken a tangle in the comments a step slow, or no, it's bumped at the start, where is it? There we pumped it to start taking up. Yeah, we just looked like broken a tango was wide and kind of made a nice move. I mean, looked like it was stalling out a little on the turn, and then really accelerated nicely before flattening out just a bit late. I thought as a maiden type, maybe one to watch for another start. The sleepy hollow stakes it with ship station. This was two pretty good horses hooking up in here. Ship broke really sharp and got to the front overstep didn't break a sharp and was taken back to fourth, before almost getting up and get the win. I saw a lot of folks pretty critical of Iraq's tactics and not being maybe a little more aggressive early on, but ships with a very nice one. I thought these were two pretty good horses. I didn't see what the figures came back for that particular race yet, but I thought a couple of a couple of nice ones..
