James Graham (winning rider of Red Knight)

“I saw what was happening around me. Manny (Franco on Ziyad [GB]) moved out around the backside. Brian (Hernandez)’s horse (Eons) started to come out under pressure, and I split two horses and (Red Knight) came right back on the bridle, which was great. And then he accelerated turning for home. Everything went great. He was probably 2 lengths further back than I wanted to be, but it worked out.”

Kenny McCarthy (assistant to winning trainer Bill Mott)

“I had similar thoughts. I wished he was a little bit closer. A wonderful ride by James, a great decision on the turn to split those horses. And then he really picked the horse (Red Knight) up and finished strongly.”
