The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Edited NYRA Staff Release — Flavien Prat, winning jockey aboard Domestic Product (No. 3, $3.40*): “He was traveling very well. I felt in control the whole race and he responded really well turning for home. He took a very nice breather around the turn – I didn’t know how much the leader [No. 1, Billal] had left, but when I called on him, he responded very well.

“I do think he’s better with the cut back in distance.”

Paco Lopez, jockey of runner-up Hades (No. 2): “That was a good trip. When I moved, I took him out a little late. And the other horse [No. 3 Domestic Product], he is known to be a good horse, he broke his maiden here. We ran very good. My horse, I’m pretty sure that a little longer is better for him. For sure two turns.”

Winning margin: 7 1/2 lengths

Final time (one-mile): 1:33.54

Fractions: 23.51, 46.27, 1:09.68, 1:21.38

Order of finish: 3-2-1-4
