Regarding Pletcher's quote.
The only way a horse like that wins is on the front end, then run your eyes out.
He probably wouldn't been able to track down much more seasoned horses.
Gulfstream has always been a speed favoring oval with a short stretch.
I watched the turf race on TVG right after it had run.
This was one of those impossible races for a closer like Animal Kingdom to win. The pace was 50 for the half on a rock hard fast turf.
The rider sensed this and moved on the rail. Johnny V saw what was happening and picked up his pace at the exact same time.
Animal Kingdom had no shot with that pace, especially against a 4 time Gr1 winner who had tactical speed.
