The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Edited Del Mar ReleaseABEL CEDILLO (Flashiest, winner ) – “I had a plan for him, but he didn’t break so well and so I didn’t push it. I just let him do his own thing and saved ground around the first turn. But when we went for the second turn, I said ‘This is it.’ I went wide with him and let him do his thing. He did it all. He was the winner.”

LEONARD POWELL (Flashiest, winner) – “I wasn’t happy being so wide, but this horse has always been a bad actor at the gate and never sends speed. And when you don’t have the speed you have to go wide to advance. I thought he was six or seven wide turning into the stretch, but he has a big, long stride reaching out. He was a very immature horse and he came in late to the barn, but he has been a good presence.”
