Good luck with max 'field later today. I'll shift gears on us here. The news came out earlier this week. That you were elected once again as president of the third red after care alliance and that's an organization that i know from day one has been near and dear to your heart Talk about the importance of after karen this sports. I know sometimes. I think that might get overlooked a little bit when we start talking about all the racing so tell me about the importance of aftercare. Well you know it does exactly you hit it right on the head you know initially for i think we started in two thousand twelve Initially it was about just awareness. Awareness awareness making people aware of the after racing. And what goes on or just stop that day and so initially that just trying to make people aware and then we moved into educating people and now under you know understanding more after you become aware of the educational process and today some eight years into it. It's it's now talking about in terms of the obligation. You know this is. This is not a this this part of owning a horse. This is part of Having the blacksmith come by me these are all taking care of. The horse is an obligation as well so this whole thing has been awareness education obligation. And it's it's not an easy thing. Keep drilling on. But but i think it's become a part of the Sort of a plank in the platform of our industry that i think the industry involved in industry collectively understands and recognizes you know the this is a major component of owning a horse in and what the industry is doing and have made tremendous a tremendous move forward in that regard. I mean if you look at the day we have i think. Eighty one accredited organizations in over a hundred and seventy facilities We've we've generated over twenty million dollars and probably assisted. I think that eleven thousand thurber so yes very very significant and You know. I think that that one of the great things about the third reich after care alliance is is that it's it's sort of gotten the good housekeeping seal when you're raising that kind of money people really wanna worse going. What is doing. And i've jokingly said many times i'm not sure how well we would do when they come to Inspect and accredit your operation to be able to become accredited by the ta. I mean there's an education component. There's go through the facilities. People literally go to these places and look at them and talk to him about adoption policies You know they have to be an operation three or four years before you can even apply to this thing so we've got the confidence of everybody knowing that this money is going where it needs to be which is always a question mark when you're when you're making these kinds of contributions but you know the ta has come a tremendous long way. We got this. This is this is a big big problem in something that we can't just sorta take lightly but it's you gotta you gotta keep gotta keep out for everybody's Perspective what are some of the things moving forward jimmy that you would like to see accomplished by the t. a. n. On the after care. Front in general. Well i think funding you know funding has to be and we've got to. We've got to continue to find ways to be sustainable. I mean we get we get some great spikes in some great Ha moments were gosh. That was great. Somebody stepped up or somebody this but you know this is an industry obligation. Initially when we set this thing up. We tried to make many small touch points as possible. You know at the sales at the racetrack here. There and yonder just a little bit but It it's it. It takes a lot of You know a lotta bookkeeping a lot of communication coordination and you know one thing that i'm excited about is a look at the board of directors and the people that are involved from You know from officials in racing offense to sales companies to people jockey club to know everybody's got some areas of expertise and skill sets. That have made this. you know. Very very Significant operation and to answer your question. You know we've just got we've got to find that magic way to to get this thing sustainably-funded it's it's it's it's very hard going back every time and trying to reinvent the wheel and we can just get some overall by end where people understand is one for all all for one That's where our sustainability comes from and it's all about you know continuing to to fund this. It's as you can tell with one hundred and seventy facilities. And i think this year we we handed rewarded or granted over three million dollars. That's a lot to do every year in. You know it doesn't stop. You've got it every year so it's not like it's one time off and we got that done it's continue. And now you get to work alongside my man. Jeff bloom to absolutely and you know and again. that's glad you brought that up. I mean john phillips was the past president. Everybody's had a real skill set that it's been at the helm of thing and and brought a unique perspective of what they can do. Well you know. Get jack wolf. Initially you know did a fantastic job. It was not easy to get this off the ground then knock came in for a brief stint and pulled up john phillips back again as i said you even step aside which king step away and now jeff is going to go to take over next year after after mass my year. And you know again. There's a guy that's very committed. He understands that he's been on the ground He's compassionate about it and he's got spheres of influence others of us don't and You know again.

"He's so good and so talented that he is a perfect three for three and a grade one winner as the two year old and today he looks to get back on track and proved he is still the real deal in the tenacious stakes at the fairgrounds. And that would be welcome news to jimmy bell. Who is the president of godolphin's. Us operations he is with me now here on the equine form jimmy. Good morning my friend always great to catch up. good morning. You enjoyed here that race call. It feels like we're we're back in action. You're back in action in a big way today. You know i went through earlier in the show. And i just kind of recap that very quickly there but this has been such an up and down career for max 'field and i can imagine this has to be one of the more frustrating scenarios that you've ever been involved with well frustrating. Yes but on the other hand It there's a sense of confidence because not too often nor around horse. it obviously shows that talented maximums. Had you know yourself breaking your first time out going right from there into a great one race And obviously another time out coming back and off the off the bench and in the runner race like that met win. So i mean he's in three races shown so much that Even though it's been a long time between races know which you always hope for. I don't think one thing. We don't question his talent and For that reason we're really optimistic and excited the same back in action and and more importantly as you earlier alluded The patients that everybody has shown this especially brendan and bringing him back and Hopefully we're we're looking for you know very productive for your season with a full body of work did can maybe show The talents of this this time and time again. So very very you know. We're very excited to be back in here. We are ready ready ready to run in the afternoon. You know jimmy. I come at this from the outside looking in. But you are obviously intimately involved with every move. That takes place with max field and i talked about earlier in the program. I talked about that training. Job that brenda did getting him. Back to the races after being scrapped from the breeders cup in two thousand nineteen the breeders cup juvenile. Getting him back for the matt win but not just back to the races getting him back and ready to fire his best shot after all that time. Off and overcoming that that initial injury. How good of a training job was that by brennan. Well i think i think he I think you hit on the head. I think his his whole card is tremendous patience. I think he reads his horses very well. He's the consummate horseman himself. So you know he. He's been both on their backs. And on the ground. And i think he's got an extra sense of of Communicating with horses. That he himself know get on him and he's got that feeling nose and He he really lets the horse sort of talk to him and tell him win and wear and We're on the phone just the other day and he said you know we're going to have to run. He's figured it out he's ready We know they're still probably few cobwebs a little bit rust on wheel but that was the case. Obviously in the win as well and You know it just takes. Probably a very very counted individual to be able to Not only physically be ready to run but mentally be ready to run and that's something we probably don't talk about all the time. It's the mental aspect as well and One of the one of mexico's greatest at tributes is mental toughness and just how he is so professional and how he goes about his daily routine. And i think it makes a little easier for brennan to read him because he's very genuine. He tells you right where he is and You know you you you've got to be able to be picking up on all those signs and and brennan does a phenomenal job at that. Take me through the past seven months. Since that win in the matt win at churchill jimmy what of these past seven months been like from ashville. Well again you know the good news is that neither neither one of the neither one of the timeouts were really you know truly significant. We just we did the right thing by the horse gave him ample time to completely He'll come back get back into his own rhythm. And i think that You know this this game is built on hope and and you know that if you just get the opportunity to get him back you'll take care of the rest of certainly that's are feeling and listen. Today's no easy. It's never an easy spot coming back You know you're in there with with a tough for us from Steve esme you gotta hours respect that. Then there's always the hard knocking older horses ourselves. Got a tougher locally owned So this is a great spot to come back in. But it's not easy spot but there's also no easy spots when you're out of conditions so you can't just exactly dip your toe in the shallow when you gotta jump in and see where you're at and you know we. This is the beginning this. Is you know this is. This is just what it is. This is hopefully beginning of an important Year racing for him. You were kind enough.
