Rosie Napravnik, Vicarâ€™s In Trouble, winner: â€œYou know he is a tiny horse but heâ€™s got a great big heart.â€
Mike Smith, Intense Holiday, 2nd: "The inside horse jumped-out, right on me. But the race was over at that point. She (Rosie Napravnik) rode a great race. A brilliant race actually. It turned it into a two furlong sprint not a 3/8's type race where we can run out."
Robby Albarado, Commanding Curve, 3rd: â€œHeâ€™s progressing every time. I got eliminated at the start, but he ran on so easily. Thereâ€™s more there.â€
Kerwin Clark, Albano,4th : â€œHe broke okay, in a bit, and I straightened him up. We were in a great spot. I had Rosieâ€™s horse clocked [Vicarâ€™s in Trouble], and I had the #9 clocked [In Trouble], but when Gerardâ€™s horse [Rise Up] came up on the outside and then dropped over, In Trouble wheeled out and he hit my horse so hard, it knocked the air out of him. He just couldnâ€™t recover from that.â€
Joe Rocco, Jr., In Trouble, 5th: "After Rise Up moved up to the outside, I thought I had the room to get outside of him. It happened quickly, but he relaxed well and tried very hard."
Kent Desormeaux, Flat Gone, 6th: "He was like a 9-year-old. He's bush button. When I pushed the button 3/8's out he took off. Going a little shorter he'll be good. He gave us a run."
James Graham, King Cyrus, 7th: â€œHe struggled the whole way. It felt like he was outpaced the entire time, but he stayed on in the stretch. He just struggled.â€
Shaun Bridgmohan, Gold Hawk, 8th: "We got squeezed a bit at the 3/8's pole other than that everything else was pretty smooth. It was a pretty good trip."
Gerard Melancon, Rise Up, 10th: â€œI donâ€™t know what happened to him today and why he has turned into such a terrible horse at the gate. He was standing perfect, and then he broke straight to the inside and got really aggressive. I donâ€™t know whatâ€™s causing that.â€
