"Towns. And getting to our favorite rates from the past weekend speaking facetiously, of course, this was once again, the finest debut of American turf racing as we talked about with the sword dancer a couple of weeks ago American turf racing at its finest or clothes grizzled veteran. You know just an example. Eric and I were talking about this before that Europeans are going to have to come over to save us from having this in the Breeders Cup but no disrespect to the horses but this is just kind of been. Running the same in the same. Rut and these horses beating up on each other and no one really being able to be consistent. Arcola hadn't really had the best of luck. This year didn't really look like. He would get a win in a race of a caliber like this. You know the Louisville at Churchill downs was definitely something and I was really discouraged by if he couldn't beat a field like that. Then you know at that point, I didn't think he would win a stakes race remainder of the year. Obviously things are changed but does Zulu Alpha who you know there were some high hopes for him coming into this year and even into this race, you know he did get beat. In the stake at a Gulfstream, the Panamerican but came back ran a good race and the elk but got beat on the spot here at Kentucky downs and you know this is just been the story of American turf racing the entire year. No one has been able to be consistent. I'm not confident in any horse. Turfs or excuse me going distance on the turf distance of a mile and a half. So Europeans are probably any Europeans who are GONNA come over a probably really happy to see the inconsistency of this because they're going to be a really I don't WanNa say tough to beat. But for lack of a better term, really tough to beat on Breeders Cup weekend. Certainly.

"That incident and I don't know he was going anywhere at that point in time but that raise didn't sit up for many way because it was dominated by horses. Especially those that road, the rail. So I think standard deviation is better than he seems and kind of like secret message that we were talking about in that earlier rates for the phillies and mirrors. He just seems like one of these horses that is going to benefit from the Kentucky downs configuration needs a long stretch run to get going. He's got a lot of stab. He can just kinda grind away at his foes and I think he's going to run a better race here if he's good enough to beat Zulu Alpha remains to be seen that's going to be a tall order for him, but it's going to be a price in this race. So I'll use him as the the value play along with Zulu Alpha. Good. Info on the trip with him I just kind of read the Equa base comment and it doesn't really say anything like that. So it just shows a can pay to watch these races and sometimes jeff to dig a little deeper go to that head on view. It's close things out at Kentucky downs with the run happy turf sprint grade three events seven hundred thousand dollar purse going just six furlongs on that Kentucky downs course. This is arguably the most interesting and difficult handicapping race on this car because it's drawn many of the top turf sprinters in the country. Some horses who go shorter distances more often than this have to stretch out to the six furlongs here and some more serandon this race last year. So really deep field, it's hard to know where to start I mean I guess bound for nowhere towards the is going to take some money as he always does for Wesley Ward he was beaten as the favourite last time as one of the favorites last Ivan that Shakur town but I don't think the six furlongs is a big problem for him. It's just a matter of can work out a trip with potential fast pace from the outside post. Yeah I found this the most interesting rates on the card and it's full of interesting races. But this is one where I really we need to work my pick five ticket because I WANNA be pretty wide in here because I think trips could play a big part several different horses could win a bound for nowhere certainly one that I'm going to use but I mean I don't think he's essentially by any means I. Don't think will be that five to one morning line but there's some others in here. We've seen a stubborn says run well over the Coursey he's run. Okay. His first couple of times we saw can't Daca with that big win..

"He wanted Churchill downs leading every step of the way. Again, he wasn't facing the strongest field but for a horse that was debut in early June I thought that was a pretty solid effort and just seems like maybe step forward since then racing on a surface that might not be as preferred surface so I would definitely use him. And the other interesting horse is the number six, Bodenheimer a who won his debut at Canterbury Park just destroying a field by more than eleven lanes. He'd all too often see margins like that in five furlong turf sprints it's just shows the disparity equality but he between him and the rest of that field, we only gave that eighty six time formula speed figure. That's one that's I mean it's hard to critique the speed because nobody else has run back on the turf. But it's hard to know how good that field was. They came back on the dirt next time out, and this is actually ran pretty well setting a faster pace and just holding out against the tougher field. He really is ready to be more of a turf on the damn side. The one reservation I'd have about him stepping up in class that they're just is plenty of speed in this field as you mentioned. So he's going to have to deal with that, but this does have real quality. So I would use all four of these horses county final Bodenheimer around the two wards. I will just mention for remove on about that speed figure. It was the only turf sprint on the day So I don't believe any of the horses have run before maybe one horse had run, but it was on dirt. So there wasn't a whole lot to go on i. kind of had the look at the turf routes as well when you use the usual rate relationship between sprint some routes on the turf at Canterbury so it's no question. That's not the most solid speed figure ever going to say. Yeah, it's hard to know because there's just nothing to go out of that race. But if you watch the race to the horse was visually impressive and he looks like a horse with quality. So we'll see if he can handle the step up in class and if he's GonNa be a decent price. Onto the tenth race on this card that Kentucky Turf Upgrade Three event with a one million dollar purse going a mile and a half and the big favourite in here is going to be Zulu Alpha who just was on territory in the early part of this season winning the Pegasus World Cup turf winning the Mac. The Armada was upset in that pan-american off for a little while. But came back in July the alcorn and got back to his winning ways with an impressive victory from off the pace. If he runs his race, he's going to be pretty tough to beaten here. Yeah he also he won this race last year it was kind of it's coming out party, set him off the to better and bigger and better things earlier this year and you know no real knocks on him. He's clearly the horse to beat and I couldn't blame anybody that's singled i. very well may do the same just we'll see how scratches are and how it looks I think the obvious Horsey has the beat his our quo they seems like we talk about him at least once a month on this show, he keeps showing up these races, but he always gets bet he's usually disappoints a little bit but to his. Credit he has been second last year in this race and he wanted the year before. So he obviously likes the course and I'm not sure I'd want to get beat if he won this race in, get knocked out of a pick five for him..

"Gets a ninety seven buyer gets beat by fat man and then he runs the goes through. Park Mile. Fish six right beaten ten but he's still picks up a ninety buyer so these races have come back extremely tough for him. And and so you're gonNA look at these horses not close but the numbers. I mean look like Harvey Waldinger getting four to one picked up ninety six fire last time out can six buyers so my thing is like you're getting fifteen to one. Which as you know I don't pill Romans short prices but when he's fifteen to one it's fair game especially when you pick up. Lewis is I also liked it. Last two efforts she picked up Brat. Obviously guys he's getting good. Were good good jockeys. I guess the only hesitation here is a is the distance horse I imagine will be on the leader very closely. How far will you go? That's Kinda the question here but I do think he's worth the price or were shot at this price. Considering his numbers are comparable the rest of them site to me. Would I'd rather take fifteen to one source or four to one on on Harvey Waldinger. I mean give me a break so I'm on number ten rare form but I think if anything if you learned anything from that little segment there is like this is a race. Rini to spread because we're both picking fifteen to one shots and didn't even know it so you're on What number is that number? Eight or Anthony. I've got ten rare form right race with the most winner. I don't even need to ask you. I'M GONNA guess we're on the same race same force. I went with race. Twelve the Panamerican Number Nine Zoo Alpha. Tell me you're going there. Yeah absolutely if you listen to the Fountain of Youth. I told you this as well as Zulu Alpha on that day was the best bet and are the most likely winner and he won under wraps in to me right now. He's the best in the country. If he wins this race I will vote him number one in the in the stupid ass. Poll is means absolutely nothing that we vote in. Every week I would vote Assu Alpha number one no one from NPR as listen and NTR April that is meaningless Zulu Alpha will be number one in my spoiler. All you fans out there that follow that. He'll be number one if he wins this race and I think he will. I tried okay so i. I tried to beat him admittedly that day. He did nothing. Bullshit I picking Lofa I. I tried to beat him given this price last time and I was. I knew halfway through the race I was done because he I mean he just looks like a different horse this year. He's he's he's the way he won. He got one. Oh six seven buyer last time out one of six in the in the Pegasus All of this works does put.

Having referenced the Breeders Cup Turf Michael Zulu Alpha ran a sneaky good effort in there at nineteen to one he was fourth beaten two lengths and was also coming at the end and kind of you know had other you know other issues to deal with and with a different trip might have been might have been involved with the the decision.

"All right here we go. We're back on racing down today. Episode Number Fifty. We got a lot of stuff to get to today. Three fifty three fifty point preparations on the docket for this week. In one hundred Fifty Kentucky Derby points up for grabs three more horses will be on their way to Churchill. Downs weekend. There's also a bunch of other stakes around the country this weekend most notably the grade. Santa Anita Handicap. So we'll get to all those book. I we gotta get to the action from this past weekend in Saudi Arabia and the conversation is coming up at. I've seen it come up in multiple different areas is about the winner of the Saudi. Maximum Security You know that is probably the most the Kentucky Derby incident and you know. I'M NOT GONNA come on here and you know say that the Saudi Cup has anything to do with the decision that was made at Churchill. Downs or anything like that or argue that the disqualification now because he's one twenty million dollars. Saudi Cup shouldn't happen I I am not gonNA come on here. Make that argument I just off you know really looking at it. It's unfortunate that happened because maximum security is really just such a tough horse. And you know there's not enough good things you can say about maximum security and you know that raise really showed that maximum security is one of the best horses in the world and obviously right now. The leader of the pack in the United States for older horse. Right now and be really cool to see this horse competing for your old year and you know depending on where he goes from here. Obviously you know. They already mentioned that. He's not going to Dubai. But just where MAC security goes from. Here I'm excited to see that. And what he has in store you know. I'm sure Eric will have some of his things. Say about maximum security. But that's something not lost museum. Fortunate -ness of the disqualification at the Kentucky Derby. Because you know this is a really really fantastic horse for sure. I mean he's slowly and steadily starting to shed that tag of being the Horse Sector disqualified from the Kentucky Derby even though it will always remember that way. If you were to continue what you did last weekend easily going to be more remembered as one of the better horses heading into this decade in this early part of the century the obviously he's now ten million dollars in earnings in at this stage career. It's only getting go go higher. It'll be interesting to see where he gets brought back. I met in. Saratoga is kind of the midseason point. Four the connections there But honestly I think he's already cemented. His legacy added great horse. Just you know like cigar did way back when of when he won the inaugural Dubai World Cup. Maximum security is going to be able to say the same thing for the Saudi Cup where he'd be a really good group of Horses. I might add Definitely was not lighten any sense I think every horse for the most part Ranta form in the Saudi Cub ibew. Probably the biggest surprise people contend but definitely not be By a quarter of a lengthy Iran. Huge She's also in so many other horses from the race but maximum security Kind of a rough trip was definitely a target especially for teas on Mutual Gustavo. Louisa has had to get created down the stretch. But you work down in that. Horses has tons and tons of heart. I don't really know I've seen a horse. Who Does Not WanNa let him worse by like maximum security does. It's quite impressive. How this works bears down to every time he races and I just think I I I think we all know. He's in pre twenty twenty if he stays healthy yeah. That was another thing that I didn't quite get that opening. Bid Is the fact that you know. Maximum security did all that won the race while Iran Ortiz was basically writing interference. I made the comment to Eric Baxter. Excuse jokers still out there kind of looked like a NASCAR and now you can say all you want about. How you know. Probably wasn't the best rider. You didn't have good character of Iraqis. I thought it was a good strategy on his part to do what he could to be. Maximum security obviously probably definitely in this country If he would probably would have been disqualified but I thought it was good on his part to do his best to win. Win The race. And try to keep maximum-security away because I don't think I if you run that race normally maximum-security just goes by with the rules over there. They run category One rules which unlike in America the disqualification rules are if you preventing a worse from running their best race. You get disqualified. There is. That's worse when when you run interference or not so if mutual Gustavo Iraqis does dat but the horse wins by Lincoln half. It's not a problem. Give what was within the rules so it was a good ride? Bhai Iran It was definitely a little malicious. I certainly Jason Service not lease with IRA. Teaser was on the first things. He made a comment about after the race. In the in an interview shortly after On national television I might add But at the same time that's I mean the races aren't one you know like a track meet where you can necessarily go between the lane. This horse racing and that kind of stuff can fly to an extent maybe a little over the edge. I think especially when acting security job inside. I really started to hurt an inside but I was happy that I read never intentionally drew contact although he was doing some blocking like you said NASCAR ask He never intended to make contact which I think was probably the safest thing and when he when he knew the horses about to go by he kind of backed off on trying to get through so are running more interference so while maybe was maybe a little militias It definitely was good race riding on his part all right so that. That's it for this stuff with the Saudi Cup Stripping back over Cross sees out before we get to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks preparations that you want to highlight a Horse Zulu al folk who is turning into his own. You know I will highlight at about this point last year. This is were bricks and more bricks and mortar was not not saying that Zulu Alpha is going to be the next bricks mortar. Or anything like that. But you know he could do similar things to where it's very likely he's going to do similar things to what bricks and mortar didn't very likely that this is probably the top tier force in the United States. This year. You know at this point last year. Bricks and mortar was a great one Winnipeg World Cup turf and and then he had a great to race. I believe it was either at fairgrounds are one of the tracks Louisiana so to this point Zulu Alpha grade one winner Pegasus World Cup turf now. He's agreed to winner The Mac Ramadan down at Gulfstream. This past weekend. I think Zulu Alpha's in for a really strong really really strong two thousand twenty Keep your eye on him. Come for race like the turf classic the Kentucky Derby Undercard. That's where I would him go but not saying Zulu Alpha is an expert in order. But I'm not saying that he isn't either into Rena. Bricks and mortar was able to have consistent success last year is because all the worst is behind him weren't consistent. I mentioned on the show last week. That Group of forces that Zulu Alpa was facing. He actually used to be a part of that group they never were able to consistently put together strong back. That rates it's bricks. Mortar took it to a new level. Easily able to string together back Multiple consecutive good races in a row. And that's what God in his horse of the year title. And if these keep going the weather going is do. The wealth is going to be able to do the same thing last year Even though I was Kinda surprised after neier introduced the Turks Trinity Series that no horse really emerged from that as premier career force and to be chair. I mean we see that with Dirt horses as well on the on the Derby trail. They don't always shape out after the triple crown trail to be good and that kind of creates inconsistencies in the handicapped division like we saw maybe back Towards the end of maybe before the end of two thousand seventeen that you're got stronger as it went on but nevertheless China look into Alpa. Maybe like an expert in order. I wouldn't be surprised because once again the turf division isn't strong and If I'm going to throw one out there vitality is probably the best grass three year old male out there And I know. The connections are keen. Distract him out so he could be wanted content we know. He has loads talent. So at this point Zulu Alpha is primed at least stay home maleter force because so far. There are no challengers within a mile oven. So I'll also want to mention very quickly. Law Wasn't a good weekend for Dale Rome overall at Gulfstream. He does have a really fine horse in Mr Freeze. You know I talked about him. Pegues World Cup. That was a really fine performance by him. A second place now. He wanted to Gulfstream Park Mile. Go not to do by. He'll run on the good often mile I could see this horse is a horse could potentially get a great one win. I don't think he's a top older horse but he's in that second tier of you know very good horses. That could get a grade two. Maybe you know if favorable circumstances happened upset a great blonde but you know Mr. Freezes that kind of horse that you know. That's a great one race that is GONNA be a viable type horse. Probably doesn't win but he's still very fine horse so some good news out of the deal. Romans burned but on a day. That was supposed to be Denis's moment day. I texted Eric after that race. In you know I was a person who I've been on Dennis's moment since really since I saw him when the earthquake especially after Dale Romans on the show and I had mentioned that I liked Denis before I talked to Dale and after Dale. I love this horse. Something's clearly not right with Dennis's moment I mean you know there's you can lose a race. That's one thing and even. Dale said this. You know losing races one thing. But running last in Fountain of Youth Stakes like that. Dennis's moment is obviously better than running last in a stakes race like that so obviously something's not right with him whether he hasn't fully progressed from his two year old year or could be something physical we don't know They're never gonNA check that out and we'll hear from that one day they figure that out but something is obviously not right with Dennis's moment and he should be a lot better than that and we'll see where they go go with him going forward. I'm not overly optimistic. That he will get to the Kentucky Derby. He's still got a chance at one more preparation if they do decide to go that route with him but not overly optimistic. But there's still a chance you don't tug on Dennis's MOMA BEFORE I go to Mr Freeze del Romans. He said the still can't find out what was wrong with him and maybe he needed the time or maybe he hasn't taken that necessary step forward of two to three years old either way. There's a one more race to kind of prove that he's a derby horse that'll be wherever Romans puts him. I hope it's Bluegrass. That'd be the easiest fought for him and we've seen we've seen horses run poorly in the Fountain of Youth and come back and run a really huge race next time out. Addict of former champion is the first one that comes to mind is saying that Garam just other horses that performed poorly first off of a layoff from their two year old campaign. Brody's 'cause lost. The Tampa Bay became back. One the Blue Rask. So the IT'S NOT. How pressing is heavy from the Romans?.
San Felipe, Santa Anita Handicap
"All right here we go. We're back on racing down today. Episode Number Fifty. We got a lot of stuff to get to today. Three fifty three fifty point preparations on the docket for this week. In one hundred Fifty Kentucky Derby points up for grabs three more horses will be on their way to Churchill. Downs weekend. There's also a bunch of other stakes around the country this weekend most notably the grade. Santa Anita Handicap. So we'll get to all those book. I we gotta get to the action from this past weekend in Saudi Arabia and the conversation is coming up at. I've seen it come up in multiple different areas is about the winner of the Saudi. Maximum Security You know that is probably the most the Kentucky Derby incident and you know. I'M NOT GONNA come on here and you know say that the Saudi Cup has anything to do with the decision that was made at Churchill. Downs or anything like that or argue that the disqualification now because he's one twenty million dollars. Saudi Cup shouldn't happen I I am not gonNA come on here. Make that argument I just off you know really looking at it. It's unfortunate that happened because maximum security is really just such a tough horse. And you know there's not enough good things you can say about maximum security and you know that raise really showed that maximum security is one of the best horses in the world and obviously right now. The leader of the pack in the United States for older horse. Right now and be really cool to see this horse competing for your old year and you know depending on where he goes from here. Obviously you know. They already mentioned that. He's not going to Dubai. But just where MAC security goes from. Here I'm excited to see that. And what he has in store you know. I'm sure Eric will have some of his things. Say about maximum security. But that's something not lost museum. Fortunate -ness of the disqualification at the Kentucky Derby. Because you know this is a really really fantastic horse for sure. I mean he's slowly and steadily starting to shed that tag of being the Horse Sector disqualified from the Kentucky Derby even though it will always remember that way. If you were to continue what you did last weekend easily going to be more remembered as one of the better horses heading into this decade in this early part of the century the obviously he's now ten million dollars in earnings in at this stage career. It's only getting go go higher. It'll be interesting to see where he gets brought back. I met in. Saratoga is kind of the midseason point. Four the connections there But honestly I think he's already cemented. His legacy added great horse. Just you know like cigar did way back when of when he won the inaugural Dubai World Cup. Maximum security is going to be able to say the same thing for the Saudi Cup where he'd be a really good group of Horses. I might add Definitely was not lighten any sense I think every horse for the most part Ranta form in the Saudi Cub ibew. Probably the biggest surprise people contend but definitely not be By a quarter of a lengthy Iran. Huge She's also in so many other horses from the race but maximum security Kind of a rough trip was definitely a target especially for teas on Mutual Gustavo. Louisa has had to get created down the stretch. But you work down in that. Horses has tons and tons of heart. I don't really know I've seen a horse. Who Does Not WanNa let him worse by like maximum security does. It's quite impressive. How this works bears down to every time he races and I just think I I I think we all know. He's in pre twenty twenty if he stays healthy yeah. That was another thing that I didn't quite get that opening. Bid Is the fact that you know. Maximum security did all that won the race while Iran Ortiz was basically writing interference. I made the comment to Eric Baxter. Excuse jokers still out there kind of looked like a NASCAR and now you can say all you want about. How you know. Probably wasn't the best rider. You didn't have good character of Iraqis. I thought it was a good strategy on his part to do what he could to be. Maximum security obviously probably definitely in this country If he would probably would have been disqualified but I thought it was good on his part to do his best to win. Win The race. And try to keep maximum-security away because I don't think I if you run that race normally maximum-security just goes by with the rules over there. They run category One rules which unlike in America the disqualification rules are if you preventing a worse from running their best race. You get disqualified. There is. That's worse when when you run interference or not so if mutual Gustavo Iraqis does dat but the horse wins by Lincoln half. It's not a problem. Give what was within the rules so it was a good ride? Bhai Iran It was definitely a little malicious. I certainly Jason Service not lease with IRA. Teaser was on the first things. He made a comment about after the race. In the in an interview shortly after On national television I might add But at the same time that's I mean the races aren't one you know like a track meet where you can necessarily go between the lane. This horse racing and that kind of stuff can fly to an extent maybe a little over the edge. I think especially when acting security job inside. I really started to hurt an inside but I was happy that I read never intentionally drew contact although he was doing some blocking like you said NASCAR ask He never intended to make contact which I think was probably the safest thing and when he when he knew the horses about to go by he kind of backed off on trying to get through so are running more interference so while maybe was maybe a little militias It definitely was good race riding on his part all right so that. That's it for this stuff with the Saudi Cup Stripping back over Cross sees out before we get to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks preparations that you want to highlight a Horse Zulu al folk who is turning into his own. You know I will highlight at about this point last year. This is were bricks and more bricks and mortar was not not saying that Zulu Alpha is going to be the next bricks mortar. Or anything like that. But you know he could do similar things to where it's very likely he's going to do similar things to what bricks and mortar didn't very likely that this is probably the top tier force in the United States. This year. You know at this point last year. Bricks and mortar was a great one Winnipeg World Cup turf and and then he had a great to race. I believe it was either at fairgrounds are one of the tracks Louisiana so to this point Zulu Alpha grade one winner Pegasus World Cup turf now. He's agreed to winner The Mac Ramadan down at Gulfstream. This past weekend. I think Zulu Alpha's in for a really strong really really strong two thousand twenty Keep your eye on him. Come for race like the turf classic the Kentucky Derby Undercard. That's where I would him go but not saying Zulu Alpha is an expert in order. But I'm not saying that he isn't either into Rena. Bricks and mortar was able to have consistent success last year is because all the worst is behind him weren't consistent. I mentioned on the show last week. That Group of forces that Zulu Alpa was facing. He actually used to be a part of that group they never were able to consistently put together strong back. That rates it's bricks. Mortar took it to a new level. Easily able to string together back Multiple consecutive good races in a row. And that's what God in his horse of the year title. And if these keep going the weather going is do. The wealth is going to be able to do the same thing last year Even though I was Kinda surprised after neier introduced the Turks Trinity Series that no horse really emerged from that as premier career force and to be chair. I mean we see that with Dirt horses as well on the on the Derby trail. They don't always shape out after the triple crown trail to be good and that kind of creates inconsistencies in the handicapped division like we saw maybe back Towards the end of maybe before the end of two thousand seventeen that you're got stronger as it went on but nevertheless China look into Alpa. Maybe like an expert in order. I wouldn't be surprised because once again the turf division isn't strong and If I'm going to throw one out there vitality is probably the best grass three year old male out there And I know. The connections are keen. Distract him out so he could be wanted content we know. He has loads talent. So at this point Zulu Alpha is primed at least stay home maleter force because so far. There are no challengers within a mile oven.

"Before that. Soak what obviously shut it on gay he. He's very respected Horseman. Us Obviously GonNa make the right decisions matter where he runs her. So it'll be an intriguing prospect. No matter where she runs so now getting into a race. I know Eric was really upset about the pisses turf. We talked to have talked a lot. About how well Joel? Rosario has come along and not that he had crappy years in the past but how last year was really coming out for Joel. Rosario that race's not in the Pegasus turf is not going to go on Joel. Rosario is highlight reel to quote shape ribbon Zulu Alpha surprised. Everyone the horse that I was really into Magic Wand we said choosing win by five lengths or wind or run second. Because that's all she can seem to do and that's exactly what magic wand ran. Second Barely beat instilled regard but Talking about talking about the winners who alpha. What looks interesting to see what is going to happen with him. He's not among the horses that are going to be heading out to Dubai. He's going to stay stateside. Which would is a good move in my opinion on the part of Mike Maker Eleven to one winter not wanting to discount his ability but looking at the races that are going to be going on Dubai specifically the Dubai Classic and the Dubai Turf. Those races could feature superstar horses. Like Almond I and some of the other top horses in the world so and I don't think Zulu Alpha is in the class of beating horses like that so definitely the right decision to keep him stateside at what happened with Mo four once again arc. Low and Sadler's joy horses that I have been over for a long time. Did they didn't run bad. Fifth and sixth respectively for ARC loans joy but they didn't run bad instill regard. Eric's horse ran a very good third as I already mentioned but A lot of surprises in the Pegasus turf with the exception of magic wand running second. I'm not sure any person would be surprised by that. Nailed it right on the head there. magic wandering second. You know you just gotTa hope you're going to break through at some point. She's going to be running on the dirt in a Saudi cups. He's not going to win that race. We know that so now to start.

"Over six hundred sixty thousand dollars in career earnings owned by Rupp racing trained by Brad, Cox bread by Stonestreet, thoroughbred holdings, LLC in Kentucky rid victory by flora, giroux. You'd see the pedigree at the bottom of the horse card. He is by intimacy, if and a Bernardini MIR named Aspen, light. The figures came back strong for this race. Ninety nine Beyer speed figure own Dale one fourteen pace adjusted and non pace adjusted time formula's ratings really big figures, no matter how you wanna chop it up a little bit of an interesting dynamic when you look. I can see how this race was run and how time for US assess some of the pay situations, the three quarters and the mile call were both color coded blue. But when you take a look at the chart you see that the top two finishers came from last and second to last throughout the first half of the race. And I think a lot of that had to do with the early fractions maybe took their toll. So maybe those, those middle to late fractions. They may have been on the slow side, it's time for US stating but I think the damage was done in the early portion of the race where you had horses like dare day in Bethlehem road and going for gold out there and long, range toddy was relatively close about four five pads out in the clear, the twenty two in three forty seven three say what you will about forty seven and three for a half not blistering. But after a twenty two and a piece opening quarter think you're gonna start to feel the effects of that. And keep in mind, a lot of those horses stretch out sprinters. So I wonder if things did sort of play into the advantage of horse like Owen Dale, as well as math wizard, but you can't take anything away from the way. They ran. I like both of them moved in this spot. Math wizard ninety buyer and one twenty two time a pace adjusted time form US rating one Twenty-three raw. These were two big efforts from these two horses now Owen Dale, perhaps, you wanna look at it and say, okay, we'll comes from a little bit more high profile connections, not that saffy Joseph junior is not a good trainer. We know him predominantly from south Florida Gulfstream Park. Those sort of situations now looks like they've got a nice three year old on their hands. If he continues to improve this way, maybe even comes a player in these these races over the summer, but I think that for me is really the takeaway from this race. I said leading into the Ohio derby said it talking about the Breeders Cup Classic top ten ranking that I do every week in that. There's a poll that number of people are pulled on these three roads, just feels like it's a very muddy picture. And sure this is a relatively formal result. And maybe this is going to be the beginning of something for oh and deal, maybe he's going to be the whole. That sort of, you know, I don't wanna say takes control. But, but at least, you know you can count on to show up with his effort because really with the exception that one race down at the fairgrounds. He hasn't done anything wrong. He went out there. Very impressive in Lexington ran a really nice race in the Preakness comes back your wins this race. You would imagine based on the timing. You're going to be looking at possibly Saratoga campaign. I suppose you could try the Haskell be very interested to see how much time they wanna give him. Because again, those dates those races are going to be pretty nice about four to five week stretch between the Ohio derby, those two races so fascinated see where Cox decided to go with this horse the distance, you know, whenever I see intimacy, if I don't know that I love the idea of going much much longer, but he ran find it a mile and three sixteenths. I don't see why he wouldn't run. Well, certainly he'll run find at a mile and we know that maybe he'll run find at a mile and a quarter as well. If you think Travers down the road or. Or keep in mind, too. We're at a point in time, where I think it's going to be very interesting as more and more time goes by, we've already seen the effective. But with the Pennsylvania derby being great one it's restricted to three year olds and it's nine furlongs. I do think you're going to get those connections as prestigious races. The Travers, you're going to get some of those really nice horses that if the connections are not sold on ten furlongs for them. They'll just sit it out. I think and wait one more month. You know, it's, it's an instance where is it ideal to have two months leading into your next race? No. But at the same time, I think if there's real distance concerns for some of these horses, and these connections, there, probably better off waiting, look to both of them are seven figure purses, and they're both grade ones, and maybe you'll see some of these connections, I'm not suggesting that's going to happen here with any of these. But I think you're going to get to a point where you know what the Travers is much as I love as much as we all love it. Maybe connections. Look at it and say maybe we'll be better off running in a race. Vania derby at nine for a long before we have to stretch them back out if we're thinking bigger down the road. The Breeders Cup Classic so good effort from own Dale followed math wizard, who was the first one to make that real move. But again, I feel like they both took advantage, perhaps of the circumstances owned L finishes in twelve o to math wizard and twelve thirteen long way back to long range Taty. He was wide. But I thought this is a little bit of a flat effort from him. And those last three horses, they were all sort of Overmach coming into Bethlehem road was mildly intriguing sort of the fresh face, but he was relatively close to that pace and he paid the price. So he formed full result for the most part at this'll down on Saturday afternoon. It'll be very interesting to see where we go forward with horse like Owen deal with a horse like math math wizard as well as long range Taty, because I don't wanna totally give up on this just yet, you know, on his best day he can fire a big shot. So we'll see where all of these horses end up going when forward, but we do know right now Owen Dale another graded stakes win. Maybe he is coming into his own for Brad Cox, and maybe he is going to be. Interesting, sort of I don't want to call him a fresh face because he's already running triple crown race. But maybe he'll be that, that newer face that may be a little bit more late developing horse that will take over as we go through the summer races. Big numbers Owen del ninety nine buyer one twenty four time. Former us rating winning this year's allow derby the loan grade, one of the weekend. The United Nations down. Monmouth park, mile and three eighths on grass Sehgal the field eight of them signed on post time. Favorite was channel cat for Todd Pletcher but down odds of nine to five. This is a nice horse. He is a lightly raced four year old, he did some good things as three year old but he always felt like one that wanted more ground. Just stay any distance that you threw it him. The, the question really always boil them to talent was quite as good as some of those other horses that could stay just as well as he could erase like this, though. He stacked quite favorably, and that's, including Chad Brown. Having a horse, including Bill Maher having horse including my maker having to horses in here. None of them got the money, the big money went to Jim. Toner. Here's the stretch run with hundred Riley process the track as they come into the stretch just behind them trying to get going catch.

"Well, I think that hidden girl deserves another chance I'm sure the Billy's working right now thinking right now about how to getting rate more kindly and not go chasing hundred thirty to one shots and. Jays the couple of hundred thirty. The bourbon, I really do think that bourbon war will be the favourite Florida theory, people extrapolate, you know, if if they'd gone, another sixteen miles, you know, when open legs, so Johnny Johnny lashes of I mean, if you if you give him any kind of opportunity he's gonna he's gonna put the right ride on. And so that was good. There was I was real surprised like Marcus hearse wash on Twitter that Zulu alpha paid for twenty. I mean, Mike washing our sitting there watching on the monitor and they they run the race. We were busy with our post found us stuff, and they flashed up there number nine was even money. I'm like what how did that happen? So you figure the mon- horse channel make was gonna be the favor. Thirteen whole Ed wasn't doing him any favors anyway. Yeah. The gelatin thing was a complete shock. The bridge jumpers got burned. I think it was like two hundred seventy thousand. Three twenty or so show pool went down the tubes. And I should always be more vigilant on seeing when that opportunity presents itself because it does like to bet twenty dollars on a couple of the other ones or whatever. But you would have had to this one. We we've discussed this this week in terms of the least the multi-race wagers you had to hit the button to get the gelatin. And because. And I know there's people that are saying, you know, the even on the sheets. Well, she was she run a nine on third graph the horses that were closest to jaywalk it run eights. So it's not like gel Trinh made this mammoth leap from you know, from double digit teens down to a basically about a three on third graph. The that was a. That was not if there was going to be somebody other than Jay walk. It could've been any of them. Yeah. You had to you had to go. But it was only seven horseface exactly that was the one thing and between presi use and Zulu alpha. I mean, anybody listened to the show. I mean, we we all piled on Zulu alpha, frankly, Nick Tammaro who singled him toward on doubles. And Nick Bailey a lot of people out on on Friday last week and. James scully? We all we all kind of knowledge that that if Zulu alpha, you know, if he ran his race in and had a clean trip that that he was much worse debate. So absolutely there were there were ways to engineer when ended up being a decent more than a decent payout. So lay out mardi after this weekend. And of course, two weeks. The we got the Gulfstream sale phase Tipton and Florida derby week, and then it's home for Keeneland actually Dave grindings coming in starting about Sunday the twenty fourth I'm going home. There we go go week early Dave spot, and he's it's all him and Mike quote, Florida derby week actually next week.

"And he's not one of those reclamation projects that maker got for thirty five thousand this was a horse claim for eighty thousand in a race for one hundred and three buyer. So this is the worse that was in very good for when the got him. John Ortiz did a good job to get him to win the sycamore. And I thought to McKnight was a real step forward racing somewhat close to a pace that pretty much fell apart and he held off stablemate slowly very nicely two mile and a half. So I think a mile and three eighths might be just exactly what he wants distance wise, and he seems to be. Be clear alternative to channel maker who let's not kid ourselves. When channel maker was victorious last year. He was sort of in control of his trip. He either went to the lead and was able to dominate on the front end on a wet turf. Course like he in the Joe Hirsch or he raced close to a an isolated leader in the bowling green that he ended up that heating with. So that circumstance may not present itself. It's enough for you to use an alternative channel maker. And to me, it's very clearly the Wylfa. Well, and I thought Zulu alpha was the key. Because there is also the matter, you know, the where the three turn race it starts on the right on the turn. And from you know, from the outside post, there's a little bit of a, you know, an added burden for channel maker the rail is at twenty four feet, and that does not help the outside horses, the the two alternatives that I I basically wrote this up I went six with oven for five eight, and I would just point out. Out hundred Riley, inventory, kin as the very least for those of you play in exotics, those your exotic players at at, you know, decent numbers, actually. And when I did that I hadn't seen the the pricing but hundred Riley's ten to one inventory kin twelve to one and that actually the those prices may hold in an eleven Horsfield. Yeah. I think so. And I think you're gonna get a tremendous amount of support for the favorite. And and what you alluded to is accurate, which is at I would imagine while resign. We're going to have to ask channel maker for a little bit of speed right out of the gate at risk of of losing his way a little bit and being wide, which you obviously don't want to do. So, you know with with village king, and this kind of Dobie Heim he a horse in the race that probably should inject some pace. You could see it being a legitimate pace for my own three race. I'm not gonna go so far as to say it's going to be fast. I will say that users of time formulas will notice that that this is is rated. On the pace projector race should have a fast pace. So if you believe that you you definitely want to have Zulu alpha you obviously want to use highlands guy. I think is a backup Highland sky is a horse..

I like Zulu alpha. I think he'll win right back. He's got my top marathon figure the other horse. I like is Mel mic. He's only been out of the money once and his last ten starts which fly in last week. Remember brass on the grass, and maybe he's a grass horse. He's only run twice on the turf. So I think he's got a better chance and a lot of people give them. We know one thing he's a distance horse. He's run plenty of those Milen three-quarter races in mile and five sixteenths a mile a quarter races up would on the all weather village. King might be wanna take a look at his turf races. Here. He he's never gotten a chance to run on firm ground after his first start here. And that was a nine month layoff. I'm gonna look at him a little bit too close out the pick for I'll use Melnik. I'll use hunter O Reilly at a big number for Jimmy toner and Tyler gasoline. I'll use Lou alpha, and I will use channel make I'll make channel making my top pick. I think he's the class of the race. He gets Rosario back his to best races in my opinion came with Joe L save that's classic classic invitational.

So the six has to seize breaking lucky four and the nine on on very good the McKnight big bulky field. And this group. Talked a little bit with with the Martin McGuinness just now and the the maker the maker horses. I thought down inside so Cleo and Zulu alpha certainly hunting horns presence in a part of the the weekend festivities on the European import front. What are we doing in here in the McKnight? Actually, use all three of those. You just laid out both makers, obviously you won this race last year with Oscar nominated and was the horse. That's improved quite a bit. Since he's gotten is Kerry, certainly turned him into one of these long, winded routers, and the mile and a half should be the the odds mile and a half cutback this going on here for soli. Oh, I think certainly makes him a a big player. I'm gonna use Zulu ALPHA's well who faced much much tougher in the Fort Lauderdale, and we talked about that race back in December and said that it was a great to in name only. Absolutely had agreed one caliber field. I think he was just in a little tough but getting back to a mile and a half. Like, he didn't a sycamore when he was a great trip and ride that day feels like he's going to be a good spot to out and his major player. I think you have to use hunting horn, you know, looking at hunting gorens to to most recent races in North America in Jayson sanely festival in the secretary before tiring and made a big middle move in the Breeders Cup Turf in a race in that fast paced. So I think that in a slightly slower pastry. Against much much weaker competition, and he really in both of those two more. So the Breeders Cup Turf. I think he becomes a major threat. I'm also a little too scared of Canessa, and I'm going to have to use him as well who rally into a modest pace and the stars and stripes now Dhaka for layoff. Of course, thirty one percent with her routers, a hundred eighty plus they layoffs good for to ally..

"If this distance ends up being an issue for some of these horses, which I think it could team colors. I have no concerns about the mile and an eighth. I think this is really what he wants will find out if the pace compromise ZIM, but should be a little bit of a decent price in the river city. I'll go with team colors now it's time for a look at the time formula spotlight, David Arrigoni. He's going to go up to act would take a look at the red spin. Everyone. I'm David Aragona coming to this week's time formulas spotlight, I'm here at a pretty snowy New York City, and whether it's been a pretty difficult thing to deal with New York as of late so interprets it has been in jeopardy for the past few days. We're going to discuss a trophy race on Saturday at Abbott, but we'll see how the weather plays out. Hopefully, this race stays on the turf does stay on the turf, it's likely yielding or soft. I'm talking about race eight on Saturday. It's degree three red Smith handicap for older horses going the mile and three eighths on the turf around three turns of the Ecuador turf course and you pretty diverse field large field. It's a full field of horses. If you may trek only are also drawn towards the outside, but thirteen hundred turf only ten we'll get to run because that's the limit placed on the body of the field in this race, the horse that's likely to go favored Zulu alpha who's one of the forces that is like the Ford the place in this race. And you take a look at the time when we must pay projector while it's not predict a pace that's necessarily going to be fast or slow. There are a few horses industries to prefer to play out towards. The front of the pack. One of those obviously the number two or village came along shot in this race. But he does his best writing up towards the front. He's gonna have to improve a horse that is I think is going to be a bit more for Lee placed in the pace Jeter, really indicates is the number one horse Teodoro. He only has one racing netted states where they said pretty slow paced, the turf classic route very software, of course. That's not really a true indication of where his page pace figures might be if he had a large body of work in the US. So I think he's a horse that might be closer than the projector actually indicates and do the of he's the number three horse Hupa. I race up close to the pace doesn't really need the league, but he'll be up near the front of the pack. And we'll take a look at the zoo. Because I really do think he is the horse to beat in this race. His last to speak figures have just been very solid one twenty six one Twenty-three probably a number somewhere in the mid to high one twenties. It's going to be good enough to win this race on the time for speed figure scale Zulu alpha has really been on stoppable since they took the blinkers offer later this year. He's trying to third race in a real actually for third different trainers. Mike. Maker takes over for John Ortiz who will within last time the sycamore Keeneland. He got a very good trip at sycamore just kind of stock on the inside the entire way the rail opened up at the top of the stratagem seemed like there was really good fresh round for him to come through the inside. And he went through that whole in just proved better than Arklow actually actually team back render well Breeders Cup Turf finishing fourth net very tough spot. But Zulu alpha he's going to have to bring it forms, New York. He's going to have to face some really tough horses, which he hasn't really done before going distance that he hasn't done that much because while he did handle returns in the sycamore last time. He's really been more of a tutor worse for the majority of his career. He really up going at distance last time. So we'll see if this is what he wants to do. I think he is the worst to beat a project store at a pretty good trip that short price only take a look at some other horses one horse that I'm kind of disappointed is drawn..

"To the racist day page on DR dot com. Mike fingers crossed this race stays on the turf. But it sounds like there's some pretty significant weather rolling through the New York area. It wouldn't be surprised at all. If this is still on the turf, it'll be run over a rather soft going at the end of the day Chad Brown, look, he usually shows up with pretty good charge in any of these great stakes races on grass this race. No different call provision. He almost got there last year at I wonder with a little bit of a cleaner trip. Possibly was he best in there. You know what there's an argument that he was tennis race last year with the replay up. Now. I mean, this is him, you know, he sort of gets these kinds of trips. And a lot of his racist. Because he's always at the back of the pack, but you're gonna see in significant traffic here through the upper stretch about really running in this race. He drives through between here. He's going to get up behind leaders have to go through between horses again. And then he's just going to miss. He's finishing like a wild horse here. This was a really nice performance. He's come back this year as a five year old Matt he's only one for six, but he was run four triple digit buyers in a row. He's been is good this year as it was last year. And he's getting back to a more appropriate distance for this race in getting back to act with up to three for four lifetime. Never been out of the exact in those four lifetimes guards, we respect to me concertedly Runwell in here you and I are seen this race. Very similarly tell us a little bit about Zulu alpha. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I mean, he's he's just. just really improved his last two starts. So this is where I'm gonna wind up. You know, you've got over here from Ireland last year as a four year old. I thought he looked like a horse who had a lot of potential in his first two starts over your both winds, and he sort of lost his way after that never really improved. But he's turned it back around especially in his last four starts blinkers of come off. And he's really upped his game. Let's go go back to his most recent win here in this more Aki. He got a perfect trip in this race. I realized that but he also really runs in the stretch. You're gonna see them slip up the rail here that's bigger picture now stablemate who's trying to rally behind him. But he wins this race very easily mad back to back triple digit buyers for the source now he goes into Mike makers barn. I liked the way on this one right now. And I think he's really well in this feels and I think it might have another trip like got in this race right here. I agree with you from tactical standpoint, it just feels like Zulu ALPHA's is gonna work at another really good situation in here. He can handle little bit given the ground. That's not gonna be an issue for you know, the distances and the problem is you made mention. He's just in career form a couple of triple digit buyers back pocket in each of the past two races. I think he's actually the hours to be in here. We'll find out what kind of price we get into fingers crossed. This race stays on the grass, Mike, and I are both going to go with the number three Zulu alpha in the red Smith, Nicole Russo taking a look at her pedigree picture, you're gonna go out to del..
