JOE TALAMO, FLIGHTOFALIFETIME, Winner: “My flight was 45 minutes delayed in Louisville and by the time I got to my connection in Charlotte the plane was long gone, so I had to wait for another flight. That was a flight of a lifetime. I’m glad we got this one…it definitely made up for it. This horse is so quick, I just had to sit on him. He dragged me right to the lead and got it done.”
BOB IKE (CO-FOUNDING PARTNER, SUMMIT RACING LLC), FLIGHTOFALIFETIME, Winner: “Bob Baffert and (assistant trainer) Mike Marlow talked it over and thought it would be a good idea to run here. We knew he was short last time (April 21 at Santa Anita) and and the only worry was coming back in two weeks. Marlow had the horse over here (Betfair Hollywood Park) most of the time and he loved his blowout (three furlongs in a bullet 35 1/5 May 1). It all worked out. It’s great to take down a purse like that.”
