JAMIE THERIOT, HOLY LUTE, WINNER: “I knew he was going to run big, he’s been doing well. Third race off a layoff, working very well, very nice. He ran phenomenal today. I told Jim he would run big. I told him I’d be very disappointed if he didn’t but, he did.”
GARY STEVENS, BOOZER, SECOND: “He ran great. My horse ran great.”
JAMES CASSIDY, HOLY LUTE, WINNER: “I knew if this horse had a good break, a clean trip, he’d run well. It was a little awkward at the start, the way he broke, but it turned out very well.
“More than likely I’d say the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint is where we’re headed.”
