Trainer Stanley Gold (Sing Praises): – (On tying Frank Gomez for most training victories (14) in the Florida Sire Stakes) “I’m in good company. We’ll put an asterisk there, because it’s a new series, a new place and a new time.

“He ran right back to his last race. He broke good and was well in reserve and had plenty left. He went 57-and-change for five-eighths and kept going. Of Course was inching up to him but he wasn’t going to catch him. (Jockey) Ramsey (Zimmerman) had him measured.

“We’ll look to the next Sire Stakes race ($250,000 Affirmed on Sept. 6) and go from there.”

Jockey Ramsey Zimmerman (Sing Praises): "I was home free (at the top of the stretch). I had so much horse. It was awesome. I really appreciate Mr. Gold riding me again."

"I went on an easy lead and kept him relaxed and moved when we got to the head of the lane. I never did hit him, so he probably still had some horse left."
