Saratoga Special Quotes

Steve Asmussen, winning trainer of Kantharos (No. 4): “You like a horse a lot, and like how he’s doing, but it’s the variables you have no control over. Garrett said it took him awhile to get into it – he thought he was cautious going over the track when he was warming up. He said that during first 50 yards he wasn’t on the bridle much at all, but after he went a little ways he got into himself. I thought that he came into the stretch well. He hesitated a little bit when he first left [Bail Out the Cat], but late he really looked good and smooth and like he’ll go further, which is what everybody wants to know right now. What he’s done at these sprint distances is very impressive and brilliant, but we want to be greedy and get a little bit more.”

 

Garrett Gomez, winning jockey aboard Kantharos (No. 4): “I’ve watched both of my colt’s races and in one race he was actually behind horses for a ways, so I just let him get up on his feet, let him build, and let him show me the way. I let him tell me what to do and at what time. If you watch his first two races, this is probably an identical re-run of both. I just tried to sit up there, be the best passenger and stay out of his way to let him do his job. He seemed like he handled the mud OK, and he ran fast enough. He’s a nice colt and I’d like to get on him again.”

 

Rick Violette, trainer of runner-up Bail Out the Cat (No. 1): “You know a very nice horse beat us. We were second in a Grade 2. He at least confirmed that he is a pretty nice horse. We will let him cool out now and see. There are a lot of options, but we’ll get him home make sure he is all right and then come up with a game-plan.”

 

Alan Garcia, rider aboard runner-up Bail Out the Cat (No. 1): “This time, he broke much better than last time. He was second best – the other horse [Kantharos] was much the best today. I think my horse will improve a lot off of this.”
