Down the backside, the leaders were all outside of us, and I had the rail. I thought to myself that couldn't ask for a better trip. Then he moved for me, but when we got to the lead, he kind of started playing around, so I had to take a hold of him a little bit and shake him up. Then he was able to hold on.
The first time she ran, she was extremely green, ... She was just hanging on her left lead and looking at everything. The second time she ran, she was very professional and very fast. She's maturing. She's figuring out what she needs to do and, hopefully she continues like that. If she runs like she did last time, she'll be very tough.
I was stalking Jerry Bailey aboard My Typhoon because I didn't want to let him go too easy. The more I got closer to Jerry, the more confidence my filly had. They told me just to be careful if she takes the lead too early because she would pull up. Going to the three-sixteenths pole, we both switched leads and we went 'Oh, expletive' We must have run over two or three geese. One of their feathers was in my foot. It was a delayed reaction. After she went through them, then she got scared.
