OLIVIER DOLEUZE, RICH TAPESTRY, WINNER: â€œHeâ€™s such a nice horse. He traveled well and he did what we asked of him today. Heâ€™s going to improve from this race so heâ€™ll absolutely be ready for the Breedersâ€™ Cup.â€
RAFAEL BEJARANO, GOLDENCENTS, SECOND: â€œWe broke really well but not as fast as he used to when he was running sprints consistently. I just let him go and decided to tuck in behind the speed and follow. When we came to the stretch I felt I had a lot of horse so I let him go. He opened up but when he got a length or two in front, for some reason he put his ears up and pulled up a little; heâ€™s never done that before. Thatâ€™s why we got caught. When Rich Tapestry came to us Goldencents looked at him and seemed scared for a minute; he didnâ€™t fight back. â€œIt was the same race he ran last year right before he won the Breedersâ€™ Cup (Dirt) Mile, so heâ€™s ready. Heâ€™s definitely going on to the Breedersâ€™ Cup.â€
MARTIN GARCIA, SECRET CIRCLE, THIRD: â€œHe probably needed this race. Hopefully, heâ€™ll get a lot out of it. They went really fast.â€
MICHAEL CHANG, RICH TAPESTRY, WINNER: â€œThis horse is a lovely horse. Iâ€™m very happy to have him. Heâ€™s easy to train, heâ€™s got a big heart. He won a race in Ireland, he won a race in Hong Kong, he won a race in Dubai, and now heâ€™s won a race in America.â€
DOUG Oâ€™NEILL, GOLDENCENTS, SECOND: â€œIâ€™ll check with (owners) Josh (Kaplan) and Glenn (Sorgenstein), but weâ€™re 90 percent plus to run in the Dirt Mile,â€ said Oâ€™Neill who was uncertain as to who would be the horsesâ€™ trainer of record for the Breedersâ€™ Cup as a result of a medication violation in New York in June of 2013.
