Dale Romans (winning trainer of Mr Freeze)
“Today he ran like his old self. That was a rough trip for him. I wasn’t expecting him to be four wide on both turns and stalking horses, but he showed what a good horse he really is.”
Is the Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Keeneland on Nov. 6-7 under consideration?
“We’re going to have to talk about it. We talked about the Dirt Mile (G1) before, but we’ll have to talk about everything (Mile and Classic-G1). Everything’s on the table.”
Javier Castellano (winning rider)
“I had a beautiful trip. I like the way everything unfolded in the right place for my horse. Usually my horse goes to the lead, but they got the jump on us in the first turn. I was in really good position outside. Turning for home, I was very encouraged that he would get it done. He fought all the way to the wire and never let the other horse pass him. I am very proud of him. “
