Quotes for the $500,000 Breeders’ Cup Marathon
Guillermo Frankel (trainer, Calidoscopio, 1st) – “So, so exciting. I had a lot of confidence in my horse.”
Aaron Gryder (jockey, Calidoscopio, 1st) – “I had a wonderful trip. They told me to detach myself from the field at the beginning; that he wouldn’t be in it at all. They said you can close your eyes for the first mile then pick them up. At about the three-quarters pole he began to pick them up and I started feeling good. He was rolling. By the time we reached the half-mile pole, I started to be very confident. I’d seen this horse’s races and I knew he could make up seven or eight lengths easy. I thought that if he could duplicate what he’d done in the past, I’d be sitting good. He just got to going and it was all over from there. It was some ride.”
