This -- hero but now you're 38 -- you've got yet another pinnacle to go for.
It -- -- -- -- -- -- that he should never give up because my career have been up and down and we just kept doing what we do land had to move my family around but.
The end result it looks like it's going to be what it already has been it's been successful move.
How is big brown doing everybody wants to know because we heard that there's a problem with his twelfth -- that -- doing well I think this kind of like the simple you know they they they squash it.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You know in light of accidents that have -- does some horses being put down like -- -- and mark -- and everything.
Is is there a problem with with horses being run too hard these days no I don't think so I think it's as simple situation -- an accident happened and people don't got -- know.
We are absolutely from within our industry doing everything possible weekend to make it.
Two way nobody ever gets hurt we're changing taxes synthetic tracks that we we we we started committee -- say bells that -- already.
That's -- within the industry that.
Monica -- how hard was it wasn't on any illegal substance we believe -- -- Very strongly and you guys must really fall in love with the horses don't I tell you what we absolutely -- these animals.
They're treated like royalty and they eat better than me for sure that -- You know they have someone and give -- -- -- here every single day.
You know someone rushed their -- -- literally -- that tell us about your relationship with big brown is is is this -- -- relation you've ever have with a horse I think so I think -- -- he's an old soul.
He's kind of art that looks right actions that that I on them.
But when he looked set.
I mean yes and no.
He looks up and down inside -- -- and he just trust.
Us as human being 100%.
Eat one apple customer I tell you what a -- human being I'd be going out club wouldn't.
You have really love this I love it out now tell us about the strides Belmont is a long track what is it a mile and a mile and a half.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It's a good question David tell you what that fact.
Kentucky and Baltimore very very good at the very -- so speed is of yes but at Belmont.
-- -- -- The fact the very deep it's much deeper than the other two so speed is irrelevant you -- -- heart that -- and will -- determination.
And I think.
Big brown got all those two now you've got to before you ahead you had a derby winner you went on to win at the preakness and you lost out of the about what.
Were there any lessons from that.
Experience that you had missed -- out on the Triple Crown that time that's gonna help you win at this that I definitely think I gained valuable lesson -- real quiet.
Real -- was realize why it was that horse that yet like almost got into the Triple Crown.
I missed it by.
My what was the mistake I think what return -- Instead it just letting -- this drive I went for broke I mean that this that's simulating -- of what you saw big brown have in the preakness.
And that Kentucky Derby I'm not gonna ask -- -- I'm just gonna let him get -- nice rhythm and you've changed and that fluidity bank got -- just power away from I'm not asking for no quick vs DC.
