RAFAEL BEJARANO, RAIL TRIP, Winner: “Unbelievable, he just galloped. This was the first time I’ve ever been on him. He surprised me a lot. I knew I had a lot of horse at the end. I thought I was going to win easy, but not this easy. It was really good. I think this horse is going to be the best horse around.”
RON ELLIS, RAIL TRIP, Winner: “He was still learning how to run last year. He’s a much more mature horse now, physically and mentally. He’s filled out. He’s a fresh horse and he’s happy, but he’s got to win the Gold Cup first to say he’s better than last year. He sure acts like it with the way he’s training and acting. In last year’s race (the Leroy), it was the first time he’s ever been behind horses and it schooled him real well. He learned a lot from Ball Four. He put it together each time after that.”
