Once again we take you Past the Wire on another great episode of Past the Wire TV and our Gate to Wire podcast!
How do you get a horse into the Kentucky Derby? You call up and ask Churchill Downs…….
Dean Reeves loves thoroughbred horse racing. It is apparent as soon as you meet him and start talking horses. We are pleased to feature Dean talking with Jonathan Stettin on this episode of Past the Wire TV.
Dean has had tremendous success in the game. He campaigned Mucho Macho Man to run in the Kentucky Derby and win the Breeders’ Cup Classic. He also has an Eclipse Award for Channel Maker on his mantle so he knows a thing or two about playing this game at the highest level.
Dean’s passion for the horse and sport is part of why he is willing to deep dive and tackle some of the issues plaguing the game today. He is eager for things to improve and offers ideas and hope on how to make that happen. You won’t find many if any more passionate people about the sport we love and the two discuss how the owners and bettors are the ones putting in the money, and at times it seems as if they have the least say.
Dean describes the unique way he got into the game, his philosophy on running his stable, and his thoughts on keeping the playing field level for all.
Of course Jon brings up a horse Dean owns he has his eye on, and that part of the show is definitely paying close attention to as is when they talk about some of Dean’s horses to watch.
Mucho Macho Man is one heck of a story and is part of two great comebacks, Kathy Ritvo and Gary Stevens. Tax who Dean is also partners on is on the comeback trail. Channel Maker has taken them around the world. This man is obviously doing things the right way is and surrounded by a lot of talented people.
Thank you for watching!
