Odd prices. $23 superfecta with Point of Entry winning. That is as low as I have ever seen.
Pletcher said this after the race about his win with Graydar:
"You see horses win grade I races early in their careers, like 2-year-olds, with not very many starts," Pletcher remarked. "But I'd say it's extremely rare for a horse in his fourth lifetime start against seasoned horses like this to be able to do it. It's a real tribute to the horse. It was fun for us. For these connections we lost a tough head-bob with Mission Impazible in this race (in 2012). It's sweet to get one for them the next year."
Not an impressive ride on Animal Kingdom, Johnny V was some spot on criticism:
"I know Animal Kingdom well," Velazquez remarked. "If (Rosario) would have waited behind me he probably would have beaten me from the quarter pole home. He made a move so big that he changed his style to my horse's style, so it worked out to my advantage. I had my horse running so much by the time we got to the 3/16 pole my horse got his momentum going. It worked out for us."
