Quotes for the $2 Million Breeders’ Cup Mile
John Velazquez (jockey, Wise Dan, 1st) – “I just wanted to get him in the right position. When I was able to do that, and you’ve got a horse as good as this, you can expect a result like this.”
Charles Lopresti (trainer, Wise Dan, 1st) – “I was able to use that race at Keeneland (Shadwell Turf Mile) as the perfect setup for today. I didn’t have to do much with him. He proved he was the best horse today. I never had any doubts. I was just a little concerned about how the race would shape up. He’s just a special horse. We’ll probably take him back to our farm in Kentucky and give him some time. We’ll make a plan for him at the first of the year.”
