JOEL ROSARIO, RAGING BULL, WINNER: “He broke well and it looked like there was a good pace, he was very controlled. He just came with his run like he does all the time. He put in a nice run.
“It is beautiful, nice to be back here and be back in action.”
JOHN VELAZQUEZ, NEXT SHARES, SECOND: “The plan was to be mid-pack with this horse, but we got wiped out at the start, so we were way back. He still ran a great race.”
JUAN HERNANDEZ, ASSISTANT TO CHAD BROWN, RAGING BULL, WINNER: “He ran a super race and he always runs good. He had trained well here and he was acting good. He’s just a very special horse.”
NOTES: The winning owner is Peter M. Brant.
