Hutcheson Stakes Quotes

HUTCHESON

 

Rick Dutrow (D’Funnybone) – “I’m happy to get him back and run so well off the layoff. He’s our next little Benny the Bull. He’s a lot like him except for his color. We’ll definitely consider the Florida Derby. At this point, I’m not ready to concede that his race in the Breeders’ Cup (last of 13 after showing speed to far turn) was attributable to the distance, but rather the track (Pro-Ride synthetic at Santa Anita). I don’t think it was as bad as it may have looked because Edgar (Prado) did the right thing and didn’t push on him after a certain point. Like any 3-year-old at this time of the year you think about the (Kentucky) Derby, so unless something develops to change mind, the Florida Derby (Mar. 27) is likely where he’ll go next.”  

 

Edgar Prado (jockey, D’ Funnybone, 1st) - “He was training very steady for this race, and we were very confident going in. He broke good and I was always very comfortable. We had a nice outside post so he was in a good attacking position down the backside, and it was just a matter of turning him loose in the stretch. And when I did, he just took off.”

 

Jeremy Rose (jockey, A Little Warm, 2nd) – “I had a beautiful trip today, but I knew Edgar’s horse was the one to beat.”

I think people are going to be very surprised how well D'Funnybone stretches out. It's telling that Dutrow is willing to go in the Florida Derby and not opt for the one-turn Gotham or stay in the 7f Swale. Besides, it's not like you need to be a 9f horse to get 9f at Gulfstream when you're out near the lead...
  • thedodge · It's telling that Dutrow said he's our next Benny The Bull. Benny was a top sprinter, i to was wondering if this horse could route but not now. Remember Artax could route. · 2256 days ago
Or a bus ticket...
Hope Dutrow has a taxi cab waiting for D'F-B after 7/8.
Will be the speed in the Florida Derby...has all the looks of a one turn specialist.
Solid comeback win. Looks like Dutrow wants to go to the Florida Derby next.
