On Trust Handicap Quotes

Jockey Quotes

RAFAEL BEJARANO, ROUSING SERMON, Winner: "I knew (Cyclometer) was the only speed and (Mike Smith) would try to take advantage of that. I just tried to get him to relax and at the quarter pole, I could see it was probably him and me. At that stage, I just let him go and my horse showed me a big kick.

MIKE SMITH, CYCLOMETER, Second: "They backed him in and out of the gate a couple of times because he stands better when they do that. I got away in good order, was in front and had no excuse."

Trainer Quotes

DAN WARD (Asst. to Jerry Hollendorfer), ROUSING SERMON, Winner: "Same colors, same owner and same rider (as Tamarando, winner of the Real Quiet Stakes Saturday). Pretty good. He always runs hard and he runs fast. He's sound and happy. I think if he gets lucky he could win a big race next year."

GARY MANDELLA, MOBILIZED, Third: "I was horrified about the pace because there was none on paper. He loves this track, but he has to have a little help. He's seven years old, going on eight. It's a little late to teach him to show some tactical speed."
