Flavien Prat (winning rider of Silver Knott [GB])

“He was pretty forward going into the first turn, and after that it was just a matter of getting him to relax. He was traveling actually a bit strong. But it worked out well. I was very pleased when we were going down the backside, and then horses came alongside of us so that made us go a little bit. But it gave him a chance to actually get a nice breather, and once I called on him, as you could tell he had a great turn of foot. I’m very grateful for the opportunity.”

Irad Ortiz Jr. (rider of runner-up Missed the Cut)

“Good (trip). Pace went a little slow for us. For this style of horse, I would have preferred to go a little faster, but it didn’t work out that way. I tried to break and sit right behind the speed. It didn’t work out; those horses broke good inside and they took that spot and I had to sit behind those two horses in front of me. I thought for a second that I would (get in front). When we turned for home, I was right behind the winner. I had a good chance if the winner was coming back a bit. (Missed the Cut) gave me a good run in the lane. My horse was running too but just couldn’t get there in time.”

Frankie Dettori (rider of third-place finisher Bold Act [IRE])

“I was slowly away in the pocket all the way. No way to get out at any stage. We walked, we sprinted. Flavien (Prat) nicked it from the front.”
