QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Mud didn’t cost AK (Animal Kingdom) the Belmont.  At the break, Isn’t He Perfect came over at the break, intimidated Mucho Macho Man, who slammed into Animal Kingdom so hard that our colt nearly went down. Our jockey lost his left iron, which was not corrected until the turn. We never had a chance. Isn’t He Perfect had no business being in this race and he screwed it up for a lot of horses today. Classics are no place for amateurs.” 
– Team Valor president Barry Irwin.
