COREY NAKATANI, BLUE CHAGALL, Winner -“It feels real good to be back home. I’ve got my family and everybody back here now. Things are picking up and everything’s great. They slowed it down pretty good and I was wanting to get him to turn off and switch off for me because I know what kind of turn of foot he has. I worked him many times for Julio (Canani) and I was very pleased with the way he ran. Julio just told me there’s plenty of speed and to sit third or fourth and to make a run with him. And I said, ‘Okay boss,’ and that’s what we did.”
JULIO CANANI, BLUE CHAGALL, Winner: “You have to get along with this horse. He’s been running with tougher horses and he has a lot of ability but sometimes he just doesn’t feel like running. You just have to take him back and make one run. He worked in: 59 4/5 just galloping (Oct. 27), but he’s done that before and didn’t fire. He’s very sound and I thought he had a chance with better horses the last two times, I just don’t know.”
