Hollywood Derby GI Quotes
COREY NAKATANI, SEEK AGAIN, Winner: "I was extremely confident. Any time you see the Juddmonte colors and a horse shipping from England, you know they’re going to have a big turn of foot and it’s just a matter if they can handle the tighter turns. He seemed to handle it. (Gosden) said he had trained him on the left handed tracks before shipping him here.

My main thing was to try to get him into a rhythm, get him to break decently and get him in a rhythm. (Gosden) told me he had missed the break a couple of times and left himself with way too much to do. My main concern was to try to have a spot to run at and not get him stopped.’’
