We worked him on the turf for the first time at Saratoga and it was like turning on a switch. He was a totally different horse on the grass.

I wouldn't have taken it personally even if he was. I've got more important things to worry about than what he does with his horse.

Let's just hope we can keep following.

We shortened her up at Churchill with this race in mind. We'll start thinking long distances again, but for now, we're just going to regroup before we get back to Kentucky.

He's just a fast, fast horse. I know he's a New York-bred, but he's a well-bred New York-bred. He does everything right. He's got a real high cruising speed.

I honestly don't know if he's the same caliber as some of the best 3-year-olds down here. But if he's not, hopefully we can make some money with him in some of the Grade 2's or 3's later on.

We thought he was the horse with the best stallion potential in the sale. He was pretty cheap for a Storm Cat out of that kind of mare.

I don't know what those races are yet. I wasn't thinking that far ahead.

Like many young horses, she had her ups and downs at 2. She was good early in her career, had a little lull when going through a growth spurt, but she's on top of her game right now.
