All was quiet at Mike Mitchell’s barn Sunday morning after an emotion-charged score by Camp Victory in Saturday’s Grade I, $250,000 Triple Bend Handicap.

Phil D’Amato, Mitchell’s longtime assistant trainer, said the Forest Camp gelding returned in fine order. According to D’Amato, Camp Victory was feeling so good that he tried to kick him. “It was a fairy tale ending,” said the 35-year-old assistant. “I talked to Mike last night and he was just thrilled. He said it was supposed to be quiet time in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit), but they were going crazy and rooting. Everyone wanted to know what was going on”

Second-place finisher The Factor also came back well, according to Bob Baffert’s assistant trainer Mike Marlow. “I thought he ran great,’’ said Marlow. “He put away the other speed and was running strongly at the end. He came back good and sound.”

Jeranimo, explosive winner of the Grade I, $300,000 Shoemaker Mile, emerged from the race “really good,” according to Miguel Gonzalez, who saddled the 6-year-old in place of trainer Mike Pender, who is vacationing in Europe with his wife.

Tammy Fox, wife of trainer Dale Romans, said Little Mike, who finished third as the favorite in the Shoemaker, was fine Sunday. “He ran hard and those were two good horses who beat him,” observed Fox. “He’s leaving for Kentucky at 1 a.m. Tuesday morning.”
