Trainer Stanley Gold (C. Zee): â€œHeâ€™s that kind of horse. I knew he was capable of it. Look at the races heâ€™s run and the things heâ€™s done. He had a terrible trip last time; he was taken out of the race at the quarter-pole and by the time he recovered he was a half-length short. So I didnâ€™t lose faith in him. It was a tough race, and he got it done.
â€œEdgard (Zayas) showed a lot of grit trying to get out. He got him there, so youâ€™ve got to give him a lot of credit. I told him before the race to get off the rail and go for the lead and go from there, and thatâ€™s what he did.â€
Jockey Edgard Zayas (C. Zee): "We had a bad post position and when they scratched the 1 (Prudhoe Bay) it got even worse. We decided that we had to get out of the gate fast and try to get a good position. I saved all the ground that I could, but coming into the stretch I saw Happy My Way open up a little bit. I got the opportunity to go outside a little bit and he came on strong. I felt good in the stretch. Once I took him outside, he just started running and running. I knew I was going to get there."
