The Easy Goer Quotes

Chad Brown, winning trainer of Economic Model (No. 5): "We've always liked this horse a lot. His race at Tampa was just so disappointing, but it is becoming clear now it was just the track over there. I've never lost confidence in this horse stretching out as well. He's always acted like a horse who wants to run further. We'll stretch him out from here."

"He's a fresh horse. He's still learning. He made the lead there and he got a little green there near the wire, he started to drift from the stick. He has a few things to figure out, but we couldn't be more pleased with his performance today."

"With Cupid not breaking and rushing and a lot of developments up front, that is what we hoped for, a solid pace. I was surprised that Irad chose the inside route, I thought he would get stopped as I saw the race developing, but fortunately it opened up and he got through. He had plenty of horse the whole well. We're going to take a shot in one of those good races going a mile and an eighth, more than likely. I will talk to the owners about it, but I would say the Jim Dandy or Haskell are likely."

Irad Ortiz Jr., winning jockey of Economic Model (No. 5): "I hit him left [handed] and he started coming out. I tried to keep him straight." "He's doing much better. He's improving. He's a nice horse."

Jim Barnes, assistant to trainer Bob Baffert of Cupid (No. 2): "It was a little disappointing. I'm not sure why. Maybe it was the one turn that he didn't like. He was a step slow leaving the gate and he [jockey Florent Geroux] tried to get him off the rail and to the outside, which he did, but it doing so it looked like he engaged early and wanted to be a little aggressive. That's racing. We'll go back and get a look at him and see where we're at."
