$100,000 The Montbrook Quotes
Owner James Dodge (Black Diamond Cat): “We’re thrilled to death with our horse. We bought him for $6,000 as a yearling and he’s turned into a really quite nice sprinter.
“In the Housebuster, coming down to the wire, he still had a lot in him. We thought he could get a mile under the right conditions and it looks like he did pretty easy.”
Jockey Jilver Chamafi (Black Diamond Cat): "I was sitting and waiting for a hole to open. When I shook him he just went and drew off. No problems."
Did you know they were going slow? "It didn't matter."
Note: Trainer Larry Bates was in Kentucky.

Bowling Green Handicap (G2) Quotes
Cherie DeVaux, assistant to Chad Brown, winning trainer of Hyper (No. 4): "He's always trained well. Chad has had him for so long, and he's always been a nice horse to train. He always tries really hard, he always looks great. With age, he has been getting better. What's so enjoyable about watching him run is that he seems to get better every time. He always finds a way to find a little more, and as he's gotten older he keeps finding ways to step up."
