$200,000 Claiming Crown Jewel Quotes
Trainer Nick Zito (Catholic Cowboy) – “Gulfstream is always good to us. We were talking today, my son Alex and I, about how Gulfstream’s been good to us the past decade, longer than that. It’s always been a good luck track for us. Our horse seemed to like it.
“What I need to do is try to win another Kentucky Derby. But at the end of the day, if this is what the Good Lord wants, and I can win these things every year, it’s not so bad.
