Toyota Saratoga Special (G2) Quotes
Tony Dutrow, winning trainer of I Spent It (No. 1): "His second career start, so impressive. You've got to be a good horse to do that. Bad horses can't do that. And he's always led all of us to believe - especially since his last race - we really thought we were going to see something like this today. They're nice horses he ran against today. Obviously, you look at him right there, and he's sitting, sitting, waiting his turn. He tries to get out a couple of paths, and there's nothing there, so he stays where he's at. He needs somewhere to go, he's waiting, waiting, and when there's a little hole there, he goes for it like he's done it a million times. And he hadn't. I watched him gallop out, and it was good. Not many horses [can push the button] like that. Isn't it wonderful? That's just wonderful. I don't want to trade places with anybody. It's one step at a time, but, so far, so good. Obviously there's been no conversation about it, but I [am] hoping to wait for the Champagne [Grade 1, $500,000, October 4, Belmont Park], but that's not my decision to make."
