Lee Einsidler Joins the TDN Writers’ Room
    The tough old pro Casa Creed (Jimmy Creed) has now won four Grade I races, plus two more graded stakes over a career that began in 2018. There’s been a lot of highlights, but for his co-owner Lee Einsidler, one stands out, and it is last Saturday’s win at Saratoga in the GI Fourstardave H. To get the inside story on this year’s Fourstardave and the remarkable career of Casa Creed, Lee Einsidler joined us this week on the TDN Writers’ Room podcast sponsored by Keeneland. He was the Green Group Guest of the week. 
  “You’re running in a Grade I at Saratoga on national TV defending your title with a seven-year-old in an important race,” Einsidler said. “During the running of the race everything went against him. He had every reason to lose. He had every reason to run a good second. Annapolis was in front of us. He got the jump, which we knew that he would. We tracked him. He opened up three and it didn’t look good. But Casa Creed has the heart of a champion and just ran him down and got there by a length, not by an inch. So I have to say, what we did on Saturday was the best. The best so far. As a seven-year-old to win back-to-back Fourstardaves and get his fourth Grade One under very unfavorable conditions, that’s why it was the best one.”
  Elsewhere on the podcast, which is also sponsored by the Pennsylvania Horse Breeders AssociationKentucky Thoroughbred Owners and BreedersNYRABets.comWinStar FarmXBTV.comStonestreet FarmsLane’s End and West Point Thoroughbreds, the team of Bill Finley, Randy Moss and Zoe Cadman discussed the latest developments concerning the Triple Crown. All three agreed that the Preakness should be moved and called on NYRA to fall in line and push back the date of the Belmont. Two of the most exciting performances over the weekend came in two-year-old races as Rhyme Schemes (Ghostzapper) romped in the GII Saratoga Special S. and Prince of Monaco (Speightstown) was sensational in the GIII Best Pal S. for trainer Bob Baffert.
