Jimmy Barnes (assistant to trainer Bob Baffert, Secret Circle, 1st) – “He’s an amazing horse. If you look at his form, you’ll see he’s only been beaten twice. That last race of his, he ran in 1:07 (1:07 4/5) and the race didn’t take anything out of him. He’s a big, strong, resilient horse and the way he had to run today, coming from out of it, just is all the more amazing.”

Martin Garcia (jockey, Secret Circle, 1st) – “I had a really good trip. My horse was outside and the whole field was inside of me. I took advantage from there because I knew I had the best horse. I saw the other horse (Laugh Track) coming up on the outside and my horse started messing around, but by then it was too late to beat me.”

Mike Smith (jockey, Laugh Track, 2nd) – “I should have lost ground (taken back) and I think I would have won. Cutting the corner, I lost momentum. I think momentum would have been on my side if I had lost the ground.”

Mark Casse (trainer, Laugh Track, 2nd) – “This is the story of my Breeders’ Cups. You can’t ever be unhappy when a horse runs the kind of race he ran. They run the Filly & Mare Sprint at seven-eighths, gee, I wish they ran this race at seven-eighths. He ran a great race.”

Harry Rosenblum (owner, Gentlemen’s Bet, 3rd) – “I’m happy. I told myself I wouldn’t be disappointed if we ran third or better. He’s a great horse. We hope to bring him back here next year.”

Javier Castellano (jockey, Gentlemen’s Bet, 3rd) – “He ran a great race today. He was running very smoothly down the backside. When the hole opened on the rail (inside of Sum of the Parts), we went on because I didn’t want to take a chance of getting trapped inside by tiring horses. When we got to the quarter-pole, I still had a lot of horse and I thought I was going to win, but those other two horses just flew on by me. I was pleased with him.”
