TYLER BAZE, COST OF FREEDOM, Winner: “He’s back to his old self, huh? He’s just incredible. He’s 100 percent right now and if they can just keep him like this for the rest of the year it’s on to the Breeders’ Cup again.”
GARY BARBER (Co-Owner), COST OF FREEDOM, Winner: “They did us a favor the first half by laying off him. We’ll look to see if we can find one more race or we might go straight into the Bing Crosby. We’ll keep him six furlongs, but I think he’ll go further. What a neat horse. The main thing is to keep him healthy. If everything goes right, we’ll shoot for the Breeders’ Cup.”
LARRY BENAVIDEZ (Assistant Trainer, John Sadler), COST OF FREEDOM, Winner: “Before John left for New York he said ‘I’ve got this horse in prime shape.’ He just said ‘win.’
Notes: The win was a record fifth in the Los Angeles for Sadler. He had been tied with Buster Millerick for most victories in the race….It was also the second in a row for Sadler, who won a year ago with Red Arrow.
