Trainer Bill Kaplan (East Hall): "This horse is in tremendous condition. It doesnâ€™t matter where you put him, heâ€™ll run hard all day long. The pace was fast and he was hung out there, so he backed off on him and he was driving on him from the three-eighths pole. This horse has a tremendous cardiovascular system. Heâ€™s a really nice horse.
"He beat him (Wildcat Red) this time. I think heâ€™s improved all the way through the year. Heâ€™s had a couple bad races, mainly because of post position and being hung out and getting in trouble, every race heâ€™s been in the clear in the stretch he runs down anybody.
"We may give him some time now or we may end up in the Clark [Handicap at Churchill Downs], who knows. Anythingâ€™s possible. Heâ€™s that kind of solid horse."
Trainer Jose Garoffalo (Wildcat Red): â€œHe ran his race. He did it good. He did everything right; the other horse ran a helluva race. Iâ€™m happy with the race. It was a good race. The winner is a good horse; heâ€™s been improving.â€
Jockey Luis Saez (East Hall) "I knew the three had a lot of speed. We got in a comfortable rhythm, and we followed the speed, and when we got to the half-mile pole, I wasn't sure if I had a shot, because I saw the horses in front going easily. [Wildcat Red] looked like he was in hand, but when I asked [East Hall] at the three-eighths pole, he just responded. In the stretch, I knew I was going to win the race."
