Todd Pletcher (trainer, Shanghai Bobby, 1st) I kept going back on the Track Barron (at Belmont Park) in his second start. He went pretty fast early, and it looked like he was in trouble, but when horses engaged him, he fought on and found more. I was hoping he was going to be able to do that today. But I was concerned about the fractions. That was our strategy, to be aggressive, the way the track was playing. We didnt want to get shuffled back.
Its great to have an undefeated 2-year-old and go all the way from April to November; its pretty hard to do. Its a real feather in his cap. Hes got everything you want. Hes fast and hes courageous. Hes handled everything weve thrown at him, from 4 furlongs to 1 1/16 miles. He just keeps coming.
Rosie Napravnik (jockey, Shanghai Bobby, 1st) We were in a great spot. As a matter of fact, down the backside, I was having dj vu of the Kentucky Oaks (win aboard Believe You Can) and being in that golden spot. He outran the one horse (Title Contender) way too early because once he gets to the lead, he gets a little bit lost. I was worried at that point, because he just came to a walk. I was hoping those horses would come up to him sooner than later. They did, and he kicked on again. Hes a terrific horse.
Doug ONeill (trainer, Hes Had Enough, 2nd) To overcome all that trouble, he ran dynamite. Right to the end, I was still thinking he was going to get there. He got beat by a nice horse.
Mario Gutierrez (jockey, Hes Had Enough, 2nd) He ran very good, but we did get shut off twice on each turn.
John Sadler (trainer, Capo Bastone, 3rd) He ducked out a little on the first turn. We lost ground, and that may have made all the difference He got a little further back than the trip we thought we were going to get. But he ran a great race.
Joel Rosario (jockey, Capo Bastone, 3rd) I was a little far back. Thats where he wanted to be. I thought the leaders were going to come back to me, but the winner is a good horse and just went on.
Ramon Dominguez (jockey, Fortify, 4th) It was a good trip, but on the first turn, I was wide. He gave me what he had. I just think he lost a little too much ground. He ran all the way. I was happy with that.
Rafael Bejarano (jockey, Power Broker, 5th) The number eight (Fortify) rushed out of the gate and I tried to get position, but he went out and pushed me way wide on the first turn. It probably cost me the race.
Luis Contreras (jockey, Dynamic Sky, 6th) He ran well, but we got shut off at the quarter-pole and got bucked around.
