Because farrell is the first one that did it since a firm that was those are magical moments for everyone that follows thoroughbred racing and everyone that covers over racing. Because i've been to a you know a handful of a bunch of those Belmont stakes were the triple crown. The line and there was so much in patient saying this year filing be year and never was you know what the likes of funny cide. Kroll and I mean easy. Goer beat sunday sunday. silence In the belmont there was just so many of those moments that you know you would be. The people were waiting to explode.

"Third and was unplaced in the future already. Only one horse has won. Both the los alameda futurity and the kentucky derby can you name him. That's our trivia question for today show. Usually i do a poll question today. I thought it would be a fun trivia question. Who is the only horse to win. Both the los alamitos futurity and the kentucky derby. Let's see how many people in our nation get it right. I can take it a step further and say name. The horse that was unplaced. The only horse. Let's do it that way to all right. Let's let's have a little fun. Who is the only horse to win both below saleh meet charity and the kentucky derby and named the only horse to be unplaced in the future already and come back and win the kentucky derby the next year. Yeah that's fun to part question. They're the only horse to win. Both the los alameda sturdy and the kentucky derby and then name the horse the only horse to be unplaced futurity and win the kentucky derby following spring. Cianci's gonna love me for that one you can go to. Hr in twitter horse racing radio network on facebook. And let me know your thoughts. I'll pass those along later in the program. See how many people get that right. Today's field in the futurity is relatively small. Just six horses. And if history is any indication you would be very wise and we can say this about a lot of races including the kentucky derby by the way you would be very wise to keep an eye on any horses trained by hall of famer bob baffert and this year that arrow points straight at spielberg. Who was second choice at odds. Five to to. Bob has won the futurity a record twelve times there are there are trainers who work their tail off in this sport every single day and they would give their right arm to win twelve stakes races. Let alone graded stakes. Bob has won this particular race twelve times including each of the past six years. Now that streak that streak. It's not a chip shot this year for bob. That street could be in jeopardy because of the morning line favorite red flag who comes from barnard trainer. John sheriff's he throttled spielberg earlier this year. And they'll get a rematch in the grade to loselle futurity later today. That's race four on the card in southern california four twenty eight pacific time seven twenty eight eastern is when you can catch los alamitos. Futurity should be a good one. How about our old friend mack. Field remember him boy. what a career. It's been for max 'field already. The undefeated street cents returns again at the fairgrounds today in the stakes. He broke his maiden first out in september. Two thousand nineteen. He comes right back in the second. Start and wins the grade. One breeders futurity at keeneland. Everything is coming up roses from ashfield and that's exactly what his connections were. Thinking goes to the breeders cup juvenile in two thousand nineteen at santa. Anita get scratched right. Before the race with a bone chip he returns on may twenty third of this year to win the matt win at churchill. Downs great training job by walsh. And he would have missed the derby on the first saturday in may but with being moved to september because of the pandemic was one of the likely favorites will in june. Max 'field suffers yet another injury. This time a counselor fracture that required surgery. He's off the derby trail for the second time. Brutal absolutely this is a tough game. You better have your big boy pants on. If you're gonna play in this game off the trail for a second time. He returns today. We'll see him in action later today at the fairgrounds. And i'm going to talk with jimmy bell. Who is the president of us godolphin. Operation's he's going to be women coming up at eight thirty five eastern time to talk about the return of max field.

"Don't know where the thirty five years gone. I mean it's just like yesterday. I was Going up and just trying to find my way to the saratoga press box for the first time. And i you know i i mean i i seven years in the business. I was working for the saratoga newspaper. So i've actually had forty two years of of saratoga coverage and just seems it's mind boggling that thought that law doesn't feel right doesn't feel like it's been that long but it happens so here we are. You know the the call we just heard. I said chief's crown traverse. That was your first travers in eighty five. That was creme fresh winning the belmont stakes eighty five.

All these years later that back then. I would just eighty five. I was hoping that. I would say i never had any illusions that I'd still be doing this. This long but I guess i'm like a river. I just keep moving when you think back on these thirty five years and there was a a piece that appeared i was in the albany times union. I saw it on twitter That had you looking back on some top memories not just with horse racing but the other stories and people that you covered over the years. What are some of the things on the racing side. That truly stand out to you. Why i mean i could probably talk to you on that until opening day at saratoga There's just so so many obviously covering saratoga. There's just not only been a pleasure but it's been a treat to be able to go up there every morning. Which is the best part of the day for me to go up to the in the mornings and you know watch workouts. Talk to trainers. I mean w i started. I'd be out there. Listening to woody stevens sitting on his poli telling every day at the end of his conversations. That wanna remind me. Did one five belmont in a row and it was always special talking to what are you talking about the way lucas. His office Dwayne would tell me that he'll yet. He had not shutters but Yes even have as windows shut so no one could see in but he said that he could see out and he was always telling me that when he saw me he would allow me to come in because he liked me and and that only you know resonated with me that you know i got respective somewhat like him and just down the road for him at an oklahoma trans nick. Zito always had plenty of great conversations with saint nick and You know and still do to this day. And the list goes on and on and on with the trainers. I've talked to when you know. I've gotten relationship by baffert helped my calls. And so he'll talk about everything ranging from you. Know his horses to his his His critics and also the people that You know with all the problems. He's had with the positive very very frank with me about that and again and the horses too. I mean who would love to be able to do what i do. Being able to go out there and see these great animals Perform in the mornings before they look at the to work in the afternoon. You know rachel alexandra she or she pops up as one of the most impressive ones and said yeah during the breeders cup though when you're able to see her and listening to john sheriff's tell the great stories about ziada You know i could name for this year. Swiss skydiver I got to get close and personal with and she's just inquisitive friendly animal. Who's just a beast on the on the racetrack. So you know i. I just can't You know tell you. How grateful i am that i've been able to do. All of that does with tim wilkin. Who as you heard me say wraps up a thirty five year career with the albany times union.

Because fair was the first one that did it since firm that was those magical moments for everyone that follows thoroughbred racing when everyone that covers racing.

I credit the nineteen, eighty, nine travers with easy goer as being one of if not the reason that I became hooked on the sport of thoroughbred racing and everything Kinda just grew from there and. I've missed very few travers stakes in person since that day nineteen eighty-nine and to not be there today is really kind of heartbreaking. We're providing coverage will do it remotely and safely, and that's all you can do. But let's update people on the change to this year's feel we are down to a field of seven. You reported on twitter just a short time ago there has been a scratch. Yes I line I from Orlando. Not who was thirty, two one and a morning line. announced. On twitter that he just wasn't going to run he didn't say that there's anything wrong with you just said if if the horses one hundred, ten percent, he can't run him and this was rumored for at least last couple of days that he was not going to run. I line was, of course that broke his maiden earlier in the meet that you know and I think this fourth try he was in really deep I think they were just. Trying to hit the proverbial home run out of the park which I don't think what's going to happen and they wanted to be fair to the force, and so they're leaving them in the Barn I. Think they're going to come back and. Try to Jim Dandy on closing weekend, what you'll be Kentucky Derby Day Labor Day weekend. So it's field of seven. Now he was thirty two one in the morning line longest. Choice with chivalry. So not yet now announced. Yeah. Yet I've been following your tweets throughout the morning here, and by the way if People WanNa follow you on twitter, it is at Tj Wilkin W. I. L. K. I. N.. That's Tim Woken with the Albany Times Union You also posted a picture of the morning line favorite Tis, the law and his connections, Jack. Knowlton. The Barclay tag was that from this morning those pictures tamp down. Those were stuff that those were things that I. If gather during the meet with my. Visits with Barclay and Jack during the meat and there's been plenty of them. And i. feel the heat a little bit. Feel a little pressure on this one because of. One horse coming from the West. Yeah. Well, you had a chance to talk to the trainer that is saddling that horse coming from the West Bob Baffert. You had a couple of quotes that you put out there. Yesterday would bob have to say about Uncle Chuck. Robb is. I. Mean. It's Kinda scary when he's when he mentioned Uncle Chuck and also mentioned arrogate in the same breath. And he says, he reminds them a little bit of arrogate with his stride is. And just the way he moves it he just jumps well and. You know. Bob. Thinks there's just a huge huge upside on this horse I don't know we're going to see today I mean remember now this is only his third career start and going I was going back. Looking, doing a little history lesson I went back as far as nineteen seventy and there's been no horse since nineteen seventy. That has won the travers with. Less than four starts. arrogate did it with four a couple other that did it but you know uncle chuck would have to you know he he he would become a a record breaker in the fact that he's. Only had two starts. You know he didn't race at the two year old but that was by choice it was nothing wrong with them but Babas coach tickets time with him and he did. and. You. Know this is this horses. To me, it reminds me of I. Mean You got plenty of talent don't get me wrong I. Mean there's two races. You know the main breaker than the law low loselle therapy I mean he'd beat I think a combined total of seven horses. He did beat thousand words come back to with when shared belief and beat honor AP. So that should make people stand up and take a little bit of notice but to me, it seems like. Uncle Chuck is like a high school superstar who's coming in and playing against an established, really good college. In, Tis the law and I think I think that the laws experience? Wins this race I mean he's the only one in here this one, a grade one,.

"Radio DOT net. Timmy Woken from the Albany Times Union. Tim We're GonNa talk some eclipse awards. And we're going to look back on Dan. The life of the Great Mary Lou Whitney but before we do welcome to the program and a very happy new year my friend. Hey Mike same to you all as well yeah. Everything is great and looking forward to another hopeful big year of racing here in twenty twenty. But it you know. Let's start with Mary Lou for a minute because because when you look at the choice that have come out for the NTR. A moment of the year voting goodbye Mary. Lou is one of the selections in it of course focuses. This is on the passing of the Queen of Saratoga. She died at the age of ninety three earlier this year. I know that you were very close. Mary Lou you've got to spend quite a bit of time with her being up up there in that same region When you think about Mary Lou Whitney and what she meant not only to Saratoga but to racing? What are some of the things that come to mind Tim? Well it's just that every I don't know where to start with just done so much baby you start with The things a lot of people don't know that she did especially especially for the backstretch workers. I mean she. She and her husband Jon Hendricks and when they Stopped having the the gala Allah then they really focus their attention on making life better for the backstretch workers because Mary Lou always thought that they were the bad but they are the backbone of the industry and something should be done for them and you know they would come out. They would have an activity for them every night out at the At the Jockey y area at Saratoga. I'm just talking about Saratoga. Here and they have movie nights. They'd have dinners. They'd have yeah Bingo they do Bring Raffles for gifts. And you know and the the Whitney's they would show up to these things things too because I remember being there. 'cause Mary Lou would always picked the horses for the Albany Times Union because we have a guest handicapper every day and she would pick on on Whitney Day and we would always have a bet if I would win the bet they would take me out to dinner with whatever I wanted and if she she would win the bet I would have to do something that she figured out when she beat me more times than I beat her because she did take real serious and one time she had become over and call Bingo with Tom. Durkin the heck stretch workers thing and she showed up set in the front table and just laughed and laughed laughed laughed I mean she just had so much you know her. Her body was ninety three but her mind was still twenty five. She had an awful lot of fun and she pack that into Every day of her life I mean she was just a treasure to this area and Remember what Nick Eggs Ito said to me about it. He said Very Lewis to Saratoga. What Joe Dimaggio? As the Yankees and Tommy lasorda with the dodgers. And there's probably some truth to that back yeah I would say so and it wasn't just Saratoga. Of course that's where she spent a lot of her time and she did a lot of that. Great Work that you just alluded to but I mean when you think about her impact on the sport of thoroughbred racing in the way that that she handled herself throughout her entire life but certainly in moments where the the racing world was completely distraught when Smarty Jones was defeated by bird stone and she was all class through that entire process. Yeah she's she t- apologize for winning the race. Yeah you know. Little Burke stone shattered the hearts of life. People onto onto that triple crown for thirty was just such a popular horse but you know you. She's in the game to to win it but she just felt horrible food. The Chapman's and John Service and Stuart Elliott is that you know they had snatched the triple crown away wait for it and and it was genuine. It wasn't like it was a made up thing. She was genuinely sad that it had to be them that glue the triple crown to see that they have Belmont Park to me. Why do you think she was able to have the kind of success that she did on the racing side of things with her racing operation? What was it about her philosophy? Her approach to the game that allowed her to have that kind of success but she loved the Horse. I mean I think that's that's the first thing comes to mind with her. She loved the animals. She loved thoroughbred. I mean she was. You don't see every owner in the world that has a deep genuine love for the animal. Like like this woman. Did I mean she would come out to when Nick Zito training for she'd be out there every morning or most mornings watching the horses train and she'd be telling Nick what she do what. She thought that he should do which was kind of cool. I mean she She just had the the affection for the game. Aim and you know. She told me stories about when she used to have these big parties up at Katie Hill and Saratoga and you you know five o'clock in the morning comes they're still up and they had at the head down to the Oklahoma or the main back switch to watch workouts and their party forty gallons and stuff and now. That's a throwback to a different area. You don't see anything like that anymore. I mean it's she just And he goes back to the over I and Cornelius Vanderbilt with the was was a stalwart in that game he was he's he. I mean it's not like Mary. Lou was the were new thoroughbred. You Know Kinda we're Kinda woman she married into it but once she married into what she really loved it. Yeah visiting with Tim Wilkin from the Albany Times Union here on the horse racing radio network again if you go to N. T. R. A.. Dot Com you can learn more about the moment of the year voting. And the passing of Marylou Whitney certainly a moment that stands out to me when you think about two thousand nineteen and that is one of the choices among the fourteen that you have to to cast your vote at Interior Dot Com. So head over there and do that Timmy also that the eclipse award finalists are going to be announced in just a little less Austin two hours from now. They'll do that Gulfstream Park. And you have a vote. I have a vote Many people that voted for the finalist had put their selections out there on Social Media. I prefer to do it on the airwaves here. So every year with this program I spend time talking about the horses that I feel are worthy of being being considered as as finalists in this in the individual categories And you put yours out there on your social media page on your twitter and you. When I agreed on most of the categories there are few that we were different but I think in terms of the ones? We agreed on a two year. Old Filly Yuki British idiom the nod there and in and I'm just going with the top selections three rolled male maximum security. I I agree with you. There older dirt male Vena Roseau. I went that direction to Tails Sprinter Matola female. Sprinter Kafi Bricks and mortar for male turf horse and Uni for the female turf horse and of course we both. I had Winston see as the steeplechase horse. All were in agreement. The three categories where we differed one in particular the two year old male which I said on this show earlier earlier I that was a pain staking category for me because you could have gone so many different directions. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out my choice. I went with Struck tour tour on top over Max `field and storm the court. You went storm the court. tis The law Dennis's moments. We were pretty much on opposite. Sides of the fence is on that one. Yeah I mean. Instructor does deserve to get a lot of consideration. I mean the thing with me he is. Maybe I'm more of a traditionalist. I don't WanNA usually give it to a grass horse. Even though that's probably not the most popular our way of thinking with this category I mean struck. Did nothing wrong in three starts camping in the Breeders Cup the juvenile turf race. But you know I I I. I thought that his Tisza Law who has local some local connections up here. He says the Second Togo horse for Jack if he If he would have won the Kentucky Jackie Club I think he would've he would've gotten my vote at the top. He would have been undefeated. Three starts on the champion but he finished third and that sort of put the whole category going to me in. I don't know in sort of a mess so I went back to the Breeders Cup and even though he wanted forty five to one I I I gave my top Selection to storm the court handed that race which also featured the highly he touted Dennis's moment in Africa. Eight rings both didn't do anything so that kind of their chances but I just thought thought that You win the Breeders Cup Juvenile. You'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA get my book. I did struggle with this category timmy. For a lot of the same reasons that you just alluded to I mean the horse like Tis the law if he did win the Kentucky Jockey Club. He does remain undefeated. Then I think for me. He would have warranted even more consideration than what I gave him but because has he got beat. I got off of him Storm the court. I wanted to give more weight to that win in the Breeders Cup Juvenile. I just I couldn't do it. I. I guess because he was beaten in the American Pharaoh before that and I was with I I kind of started mapping out. Okay which are the horses won. The most great ones the most greatest steaks and I started to kind of break down that way and everybody had very similar resume with the exception of of structure. Who as you mentioned undefeated and won the Breeders Cup? I thought that was like you. I fought myself on giving it to a horse race exclusively on turf but then I looked at my horse of the year ballot. I voted for bricks and mortar. Who went all of his races on grass this year so I tried to be consistent in that respect I guess I I guess I wasn't consistent in that I mean when you get when you had When you look at the horse horses a year I mean I just don't think anyone anyone did with bricks with mortars did you look at the horses on dirt? There was no one that really put me away to say that. Yeah this is the horse of the year Yep I I agree one hundred percent I it would have been much more interesting. Had Midnight Zoo. Won The Breeders Cup distaff. Then you would have serious debate as to which way.

"Welcome back ESPN one thousand in Mesa. Arizona starting to warm up a little bit son is out of David Caplan, Jason McCaw. Vice president of the cubs kind enough to come by. And to see us Jason how are you doing? Well wish we could take off the coats. But we'll take it. We're we're we're in spring training. Everyone's excited to be here. Looking looking forward to get going. All right. So they have talked about the cubs leading an influx of young pitching common. Do you see that wave of pitching around the corner? I really do. Yeah. We've talked about it over the off season. I mentioned that at my panel at the at the cubs convention a couple of weeks ago. I think we are at that point now where when you look at our double and triple AAA rosters. We have starting pitching options that I believe will be readily available for us should be there. Whether it be this year, certainly in the next sixteen months when you look at now, we've taken a lot of pitching. And so we should have some of those guys. But now, I have viable options. If we need to. Go down and get it. You'll see guy here in majorly camp this year on a Dunkin Robinson, but when you look at Thomas hatch. And Keegan Thompson macgyver like Matt's. Former who is our minor league pitcher of the year last year. We still have an Alec mills. And those guys that we have the major league club needs. Some that will have guys ready to come up here and help a kid. That was interesting by the name of Dakota meccas six foot seven two hundred whatever to sixty this. He factor in at the major league level this year. I think he certainly could if you look at his minor league track record the last couple of years. It's been a a lot of strikeouts. He's one of those guys that despite his his height. He throws from a lower slot without elevated fastball. Hitters have really just had a tough time getting swings on. And when you look at the the strikeout rate over the last couple of years, but it's indicative of that. It's a really tough ball to pick up. He'll run it up into the mid nineties. But he's also that guy gets wings and MRs at ninety two in the zone. And so it'll be fun for him to to come into major league camp. And have our have our major league staff lay eyes on them. All right. So in terms of the pitching staff, I I've said on the year. I think the bullpen still concerns me a little I love the starting rotation if they all stay healthy. What happens to a guy like Tyler chat? Would I think it really it's up to Tyler? You know, I think a lot's going to depend on how he throws this spring. Obviously they didn't have the year that that he hoped that we had hoped for last year coming in. It was it was a struggle for him. To say the least. Yeah. The thing with him is he's such a good athlete. And this is a guy that as an area scout in southern California. I've seen them for a long time. It was a two-way guy obviously had some success there in Colorado had success away pitching away from cores and just got going bad for him last year, and it snowballed on them. And we certainly still believe in the stuff and what's coming out of his hand. We certainly believe in the athlete, and ultimately, you know, he's going to have to come in and and put twenty eighteen behind them and and pitch well for us in terms of looking at your system. How would you characterize it because Kris Bryant from the system you developed him guys that you trade it for also Kyle Hendricks Addison Russell you drafted Schwarzer. You trade it for Rizzo. He was in the system a little bit. We'll stick it trailers in the system hobby by is in the system, but that's all at the big league level. How would you characterize your systems health right now? Yeah. I'd say it's probably better than what's what some of the publications are saying out there. Yeah. Obviously when we had that run on those first round picks through twenty fifteen Indian hap-. All do really well immediately twenty sixteen we didn't pick until the third round. Yeah. When when you signed Dexter Fowler and science and free agent guys, you know, pick two one four, and we took a Thomas hatch who we we are still bullish on our twenty sixteen draft. And what we think it'll be but now going forward a couple of years coming out of last year's draft really excited about Nico Horner, obviously really excited about Miguel Amaya, and those are the names that you'll be reading about and some of these publications, but also a braille in Marquez the death of the organization, I think is very good right now, we just don't have the. Yeah. The Kris Bryant in the Kyle Sobers the guys that you're going to be that were bandied about a lot a couple of years ago and at the same time, we also know that we've got to do better outside of the first round. And certainly some of our pitching that we did take after the first round in those first few years. Haven't done as well as we had hoped. But when I look back at like later in the draft, especially from sixteen seventeen we're real excited about last year's draft. And some of the high school kids that we were able to take after Nico hoarder and deeper war certainly more bullish than than probably the industry is right now. Do you take a player? Let's say you go see this guy. Danny and you go boy, he's got great baseball makeup. But I'd still no athletically or do you look at go. But at a great athlete, but I gotta teach him baseball. How do you make that determination? Yeah. I mean, that's that's kind of the art of it art and science of it. And look at the end of the day. We're trying to get the most impact for the organization, and you're a guy that. That doesn't have the the athleticism or just a pure skill. How much is he going to make the most of his ability versus the guy that can leap tall buildings in a single bound at maybe doesn't have that skill level. Yeah. He might have the just the natural tools. So you always blending those things. Of course, we always want to hit on upside. We don't want to we don't want to take away from the possibility of really getting a superstar type caliber player because if a player ceiling is axing can never get above that. Then that hopefully his skill level. Is that great that it's going to be able to play out on the major league field for us or a trade to get? But certainly it's a blend of that. When when you're going in you you certainly want some certainty depending on where you're picking in the draft. But you also want. Of lottery tickets so to speak as well. So you can try to catch some upside. So how does the guy like I'm looking at the online draft and the cubs pick Brett Jackson at thirty one. The white socks though at twenty three take Jared Mitchell and the angels take Mike trout at twenty five. Okay. How does a guy like Mike trout, take us through the scouting price? How is he sitting there? Twenty five picks. It's it's a strange thing. And luckily, I'm one of the scouting directors that can say did not pass on Mike trout because we were picking the hide them. But truth be told, you know, Mike was a high school outfielder from a cold weather state there in New Jersey, and I think as a scouting community, you tend to to bang those guys a little bit because they're not playing the best competition. You're not getting them in warm weather all year round. Now, the one thing Mike did was when he when he went down played in the the Jupiter event in the fall. He clearly was one of the better players down there. Yeah. Yeah. You're looking at Jared Mitchell, who is the tooled up athlete two-way guy. Believe played football going into college might have played in college, but super athletic outfielder there at LSU. That you could really dream on. Now, the one thing with him is he did swing and miss a lot too. So you're always trying to balance is that just a byproduct of the fact that he hasn't played as much and once he gets out. He's going to the strikeout rate will come down. So you're always looking at again like the tools guys like the Brett Jackson's have big tools. Jared Mitchell big tools, Mike, trout, probably just a high school thing worked against him a little bit. And it angels hit on two guys. He, but he was their second pick one. Which I mean in both those guys might trout's one of the best players of all time. But I think it was just the combination of cold weather right handed high school kid from the from the east coast. And if I'm being honest with you, which I will be we probably would not have taken him at our pick. We ended up taking a high school further from Puerto Rico lefthanded hitting center fielder who'd certainly didn't pan out the way that we had hoped, and it's just one of those things where industry wise, the industry as a whole lot of teams missed on them. And we would have missed on them to you had mentioned remember telling me this too. He said we're picking at nine, and you've told me the story before when I wrote my book where you're talking to Tim Wilkin. You're like dude who you taken at nine because I'm picking ten so it doesn't matter. You can't trade picks. He's not gonna take it at shortstop. And you're like, Linda or won't be there. I'm taking havi by as you went. I would never have taken him. Yeah. Same thing. And again, it's like stank goodness. Tim took. Tick hobby. Yeah, we really wanted to pick Lindores ten when I was with Padres at year. And obviously Cleveland took him I believe and your hobby again, it's it's you saw the tools on the field. You saw unbelievable unbelievable ability. But you also saw this wild swing? It was there'd be a lot of swings and misses as well. And at the time. Yeah, he was definitely playing short some teams Saudi might catch. And the end I think there was questions on just how consistent about would be how many swings and misses or would be because I mean, there are some wild wild swings with hobby in highschool, not unlike imagine, you know, in the processing setting, so I think the industry as a whole to had questions there on how much is he going to hit? You get this. Tremendous power is tremendous bats beads gonna play with the swings and misses we're seeing now. So when THEO says to you, all right, I'm trading whoever it is a lawyer Jimenez, Dylan sees.
