Chad Brown (winning trainer of Balance the Books)

“He’s a wonderful horse, wonderful owners – Seth Klarman and Bill Lawrence. All three of this horse’s races have been good. (He is a) Keeneland sales grad (purchased for $160,000 at the Keeneland April Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale); got him here in the spring and brought him back here and won a stakes. It’s been great.

“This horse is getting bigger and stronger, and it’s on to the Breeders’ Cup (Juvenile Turf [G1])”


Julien Leparoux (winning jockey)

“He’s a very nice horse. He didn’t break too sharp today, but he was relaxed and he made his run like he usually does.”


Francisco Torres (rider of Brown Almighty, who finished third but was moved up to second after the disqualification of Really Sharp)

“(The bumping) hindered me a lot. Inside the eighth pole we had dead aim on them and all of a sudden we had the room taken away from us and it stopped his momentum. He picked it up once we were clear.”


David Cohen (rider of Sonofasamurai, who finished fourth but was moved up to third after the disqualification of Really Sharp)

“I think the video speaks for itself.”
