So you've been at Churchill Downs this week, you're there last week as well. Have you been able to pick up anything from just catching these personality of these horses? And then also, how would you like, how would you wait? Like these types of our reservations versus the race results we talked about earlier. Um it's definitely something that, that I place a lot of credence on. I mean, I, being a horse person myself, I've ridden horses for over 20 years and um, all types of different horses show horses for the most part, but I did gallup resources for a little while. Um and you know, you want to make sure that the horse that you are interested in is handling things well that they are kind of taking everything in stride. They're very professional, they're very workmanlike as they go about. Um they're training leading up into the race and schooling in the paddock and how do they deal with the crowd and how are they during the morning works? How are they with the weather if it's really hot or cold? Um, so there's a lot of those kind of things that are hard to quantify per se. Um, that I think go into deciding if this horse is going to be able to perform when it comes down to game time. Like I said, there they are individuals, You know, you mentioned Nascar, I guess it would be kind of the same thing as like, say, a driver that gets nervous or something. I don't know where isn't able to handle the pressure of the heat or whatever. It's kind of the same thing, you know, so it's very, um, you have to take all of those in stride and I tend to, I like to watch the workouts of the horses. I like to watch them school. Midnight bourbon has gotten loose on the backside. He got away from his handler the other day. He was acting up in the paddock as well. So there's a little bit of a bad actor. We're hoping he kind of relaxes as we look towards the race and I don't think there's anybody else that's been too terribly keen in any way, but you definitely notice the ones that are professionals, okay. Maybe the best human. Yeah. And you have been a bourbon and you have a verb onek as well. So if you're looking for a bourbon, exact if that's your drink, that's your play. This is my kind of bet, I like this. This is, let's talk about some more individual horses here. Essential Quality is a favorite. There are 2-1 and then there's a decent gap back to rock your world, who you mentioned has done well in the prep races. Let's talk about essential quality. First. Do you think that they are deserving of the super short odds of 2 to 1? I mean, this is a horse that's undefeated. So yes, he's done anything wrong, You know, he has, he has passed every test that he has been given with absolute flying colors. And you know, the one thing I guess that people are saying, and this goes back to our earlier conversation, is that okay? He won the blue grass stakes coming into this race. But how, how tough was that field? Really highly motivated was a tough horse. He's also in the Derby and they went head to head down the lane, but it was pretty much those two horses and then everybody else. So, you know, was that race good enough? Were the numbers he ran in that race good enough to say he should win with these, you know, as the favoritism implies. Um, but still he is undefeated. Nine horses have exited the Kentucky Derby undefeated. He's hoping to add himself to that list. Um, He's got to turn back around here in about three or four weeks, which is normal for a horse, but one must wonder as well, you know, how tough was it that he really dueled with, highly motivated? How much did that take out of him to now turn around and, you know, run another marathon? So to say if you had just done that a couple of weeks before you're going to really be at the top of your game even higher, you know, in that amount of time. So I think he certainly, um, deserving of being the favorite. He's handled everything very professionally this weekend to see him up close and personal trainer brad cox is really excited about him, He schooled great, so he's
