Besides being a true horseman, lover of the sport and animal, great trainer, Graham Motion is also a delightful guy and a total pleasure to talk with.
We were fortunate to have Graham join Jonathan Stettin on this episode of Past the Wire TV for a chat about several topics in horse racing. Graham and Jonathan are both extremely passionate about racing and the current state of the sport and share a deep concern about its future.
Graham and Jon talk about everything from horse individuality to training on a farm as opposed to at the racetrack. Lasix, race day medications, HISA, shipping, and on track pharmacies work their way into the discussion.
The show ends with Graham talking about Mean Mary who we are scheduled to see in the Grade 2 New York Handicap on Friday. Wanna know if Mean Mary is mean which could be a good thing for a mare or if it is just a name? You'll have to listen to learn that and how Graham points for the races he is after.
Graham Motion has reached the pinnacle of the sport. With wins in the Breeders' Cup, Kentucky Derby, Dubai World Cup and many other graded stakes Graham was kind enough to share his opinions and some of the vast wealth of knowledge he brings to the table. If you're a student of the game like we are you will soak it up like a sponge.
Once again thank you for tuning in and we hope you enjoy the show:
