We got a clear trip around the second turn and he was just finishing fast. He's a very classy horse, very laid back, and very enjoyable to ride."

Left: Second place finisher Stormy Len heads out to the track before the race. Jockey Alex Solis said, "I can't complain. We sat exactly where I wanted to be, and he is the kind of horse who just keeps on at that same pace when he gets going. I was really happy at the top of the stretch, with them having to come and get me. He ran great."

Right: Third place finisher and beaten favorite Jack Milton in the post parade. Jockey Joel Rosario said, "He broke slow, and I had to rush a little bit to get position. Then we steadied a little bit turning for home, but he ran his race once we were going. With a better break wed have done better. It hurts your momentum to have to use him up early and not relax."
