WATCH: Gormley’s Late Run Enough to Prevail at Santa Anita

Gormley did just enough at the end to win the Santa Anita Derby. Can he do it again at Churchill Downs on Saturday?

This feels great. It never gets old. We were hoping that he can rate and not get too far behind the speed and Flavien just rode him perfectly. He responded well in the stretch and we knew he tries really hard and he lived up to what we thought he would do. So, we’re really happy. We’re hoping that he can stretch out. We’ll find that out but I have a feeling we’ll try two turns and will see how it goes.”
