Angel Cruz (winning rider of Renown [GB])

On scoring his second graded stakes victory of Keeneland’s Fall Meet following the Darley Alcibiades (G1) on Oct. 7 on Dancing Rags

“I love Keeneland. It’s amazing. It’s beautiful.”

On his victory aboard Renown

“I had a perfect trip. The horse broke a little slow, and I just left him right there and took position. In the far turn, I had so much horse that I went wide and just circled the field.”

Jose Ortiz (rider of runner-up Bigger Picture)

“I broke very well. The other horses beat us (out of the starting gate) and I let them go. I felt like I had a chance, but the other horse (Renown) kept coming and my horse kept fighting. He ran a good race.”

Marcelino Pedroza Jr. (rider of third-place finisher Bullards Alley)

“My trip was good. I was behind the speed. It was a slow pace. When the winner came to me, I tried to go with him. He ran good. I can’t complain.”
