My only real concern coming into the race is that he did not run well over this course last year. But that was only the second start of his career, and he was still a little green back then. I guess we can put that worry to bed now.

Everything unfolded the way we thought it would and the way we hoped it would. This was a home run.

What I really like about them is they're 7-for-7 since I had the two. They like to win, that's obviously the most important thing.

Bluegrass Cat is a tremendous mover, very athletic. Both horses are pretty easy to train, pretty straightforward and obviously very talented horses. With Keyed Entry, we've tried to work to get him to relax a little bit and we're hoping that he can carry his speed a little way.

Keyed Entry is an exceptionally gifted horse. He's got loads of speed, he's very willing and he's obviously done everything we've asked him to do so far.

The surface has a bit of a quirky reputation, so it's important that he already has started there. It can be tiring for some horses the first time over it, but he handled it. It has the reputation of being very safe and if it rains, since it's sand-based, it can handle the moisture.

His best distance is probably a mile-and?an-eighth to a mile-and-a-quarter. It's good to see that we can stretch him out from here.

Six furlongs is a better distance for him, and he's a New York-bred - he runs for bonus money.
