Foxwoods Champagne (G1) quotes
Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Havana (No. 3): "Anytime you go from 5 ½ [furlongs] to a mile and do it against the type of horses he was in with today, it's always a concern. We did a similar thing with Uncle Mo, the difference being that was six [furlongs] to a mile. I think it takes a pretty special horse to do it. I'm proud of his efforts today. We knew we were asking him a lot, but we were doing it because we liked him a lot."
