Trainer Patrick McBurney (Just Call Kenny):

“Our plan was to back off horses and pick up a little check here. (Jockey) Joe (Bravo) said he really took off when he asked him.“There was an allowance race scheduled for today, and we wanted to get a sprint allowance into him before stretching him out to a mile. When the allowance didn’t fill, the racing office said this race is here, and we went in. It worked out well.“

Getting ready, he acted like he could really run, and he’s a huge colt on top of it for a 3-year-old. He had a huge turn of foot coming off the pace at Monmouth, which was a speed track also, so we had high hopes for him.“No plans yet. We were thinking of going into a one-other-than allowance going a mile next time. Now we’ll have to come up with a new plan. John Forbes manages the partnership, so we’ll have to get together to see what there is for him.”           

Jockey Joe Bravo (Just Call Kenny): “This horse has really had a lot of talent all along. We always had high hopes for him, but if you look he’s a big playboy. Flashy horse, always had other things on his mind. Today, when he had those other horses run away from him he was like, ‘Hey, where are they going? Let me catch up.’ Man, you saw the move he did to catch up. That was a pretty eye-opening race that he ran today. His better races are going to be going further in the future. We don’t know about the future yet, but hopefully we’ll find out.”
