“The trip was beautiful. The horse had been training really well. (Trainer) Tony (Dutrow) always has them ready for races like this. He sat there, took the trip perfect, and I felt like I had the winning horse from the half-mile pole in. I got him outside of everybody, and never had to touch him with the stick. A horse like that, one that rates, will go as far as you need him to go.”
