"It's a testament to the quality of horse he is—to go from a maiden to an allowance to a Grade One and to show a different running style and get some dirt in his face and put in an effort like that against much more seasoned horses."

"I told Mr. Walden and Mr. Pletcher, 'That's a super horse.' I've never seen a horse like that, a first-time starter, do that the way he did it. It was impressive."
-Javier Castellano after maiden win
"The more people I talk to about this horse the more special he looks, as everyone who has been in contact with him has nothing but glowing things to say about him, from his physical and mental attributes to the extraordinary things he’s done on the racetrack."
