From the Keeneland Media Team:

Valorie Lund (winning trainer of Bodenheimer)

“We are so thrilled because this means we have an opportunity to take him to the Breeders’ Cup. I’ve never had a 2-year-old that I thought early in the year was good enough. But when this colt started breezing, I thought ‘He is good enough’ so that is where we are going.”

(Lund said Bodenheimer will train up to the Breeders’ Cup at Ashwood Training Center on the northern fringe of Lexington in Fayette County.)
Brian Hernandez Jr. (winning rider)

“My wife (Jamie) watched this horse at Kentucky Downs (where she is a track photographer and where Hernandez rode the colt to a fifth-place finish in the Juvenile Turf Sprint-L on Sept. 12). She said, ‘You know that horse is going to win the Indian Summer.’ She said it all week, so I’ve gotta give her all the props of knowing how good he is and to Valorie for doing such a good job. He’s a fast horse. He left there good – he did that with me at Kentucky Downs as well. He leaves there fast. He kinda puts the race to ‘em, and that’s what he did today. He was the fastest horse in the race.”
