I am so proud of this horse,” said Brown. “He put everything together today. He showed his ability, his agility and his class today. It’s not easy to win these races.”

“Winning the Haskell here means a lot,” he said. “To finally win this race is special. I got my start here. I took my trainer’s test here the day after the Breeders’ Cup in 2007. I came back a year later and had horses here. Last year we ran two horses in the (Haskell) and one was the favorite (Timeline) and didn’t win, so it means a lot. You have to come with the right horse and this is a really good horse.”
