GULFSTREAM PARK SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIP

 

Todd Pletcher (Trainer, Munnings, 1st) – “I was a little concerned that he might not be ready for his best as things didn’t go exactly as planned off the layoff, missing a prep in the Mr. Prospector when we scratched because of the wet track. But he was good enough and classy enough to overcome it and win. We’ll consider the mile race here on Mar. 13 (Gulfstream Park Handicap) if he’s doing well and then maybe the Carter Handicap (Apr. 3 at Aqueduct) after that to get that elusive Grade 1 win for him.”

 

Javier Castellano (Jockey, Munnings, 1st) – “He broke well out of the gate and there wasn’t much speed in the race, so I just found my spot and let him get comfortable with the pace. We weren’t going fast and he was taking everything real easy, and I took it from there. When I asked him for his run, it was actually pretty amazing, because he just took off and found another gear. It was a great feeling.”
