Quotes from Steve Asmussen:
"We've had a tremendous year, made possible by some tremendous opportunities and my outstanding help."
(on watching the record-setting race via a feed that he did not realize was on tape-delay) "I was watching the race, and my wife called to congratulate me. I said, '"They're at the half-mile pole!'"
(on possibility of becoming first to win 600 races in a year) "Churchill closes this week and Woodbine and Remington are right behind them, so there aren't a lot of opportunities (remaining). Five-ninety, maybe."
(will this be the last time he breaks the record?) "Definitely."
