Trainer Alan Goldberg, via phone (Awesome Speed): “It looked like he got hit one way and then got hit another [at the start]. He had a pretty clean trip after that, so I’ll talk to [assistannt trainer] Jorge [Duarte] and see if he got banged up.
“I bought him out of the sale and he ran terrible the first time; that was pretty much a big disappointment. He seems to have really gotten it together, but I’ve liked him all along.
“He’ll stretch out to a mile and a sixteenth, but I don’t know if he’ll stretch out with good horses. We’ll see. I’ll be down there Monday and spend a week down there and I’ll talk to Jorge and we’ll lay out a plan for him. Before the race I was thinking we would pass the Holy Bull and just try for the Fountain of Youth but we’ll see.”
Jockey Joel Rosario (Awesome Speed): "He got pinched a little bit at the start. I saw the two horse going to the lead and then the four horse was going to the lead so I eased him out a little bit trying to get him to the outside pocket and then he had a nice cruising speed, nice horse, easy to ride."
Asked about the day he's had so far, winning four races: "Yeah it's beautiful. They've all been different [the horses], sometimes they are kind of the same, taken a little bit to figure it out. I feel good, kind of working hard and then take it from there."
Trainer Juan Rodriguez (El Charro): “I think this is one of the best horses I’ve had, but I think he needs more distance. We have to wait and see what’s next for him here.”
