HALLANDALE BEACH

 

David Brownlee (Bim Bam) – “It didn’t look like there was much speed in the race, so our plan going in was to go to the lead and hope to slow it down, which is the way it went. From there it was up to Eibar (Coa). He knows the horse very well. We know he’ll fight back like he did the last time (beaten a neck in Dania Beach) and they went 1:08 (six furlongs) in that race. We’re going to stick to turf with him and he’ll come back in the Palm Beach here (Mar. 6).”

 

Eibar Coa (jockey, Bim Bam, 1st) – “My plan was to sit right behind the speed, but when they let me go I was able to make the lead and then go that slow. And I know my horse is a fighter, and he doesn’t like to let horses go by. I knew if they challenged him he was going to fight back. When the other horse (Interactif) went by, I knew my horse was going to try, so I kept riding and digging because I knew he could come back, and he did.”

 

Kent Desormeaux (jockey, Interactif, 2nd) – “Was it the trip I wanted? Yes. It went very well. But I’m shocked. I didn’t think I could get beat from the quarter-pole.”
