I was trying to go outside, but when I saw him move up a little bit, I got plenty of room inside. So, I just took a chance to go inside.“My horse responded really good. I’m excited, my horse is running really good.”TYLER GAFFALIONE, GOT STORMY, SECOND: “It’s definitely a step forward from the last race. We would have liked to have won, but hopefully she comes out of the race fine.“We didn’t see much pace on the form, so we figured we’d be a little aggressive out of the gate – she usually breaks well. I let her run down to the first turn, and it looked like the seven (Kingly) wanted the lead, so I just took back on the outside of him and sat beautifully the whole way. I had a ton of horse coming into the stretch, and she kicked on, but she just got run down.”TRAINER QUOTESJEFF MULLINS, RIVER BOYNE, WINNER: “A perfect trip. I told Abel to try and get the same trip as he did last time. This time he had to go inside instead of outside. Abel has done a great job keeping him in position, that is the way he likes to run and he’s got a really good kick down the lane. I couldn’t say anymore about Abel. I do want to wish Jeb Cohen a happy birthday.“He’ll go anywhere you want him to as long as he’s got enough energy left. Abel has done a great job of saving it until it counts so a lot of credit goes to Abel.“When I brought him back off the layoff, I wasn’t sure he was coming back. He threw a dud the first time and then he had some troubles, but he’s back.”MARK COHEN, RED BARON’S BARN, RIVER BOYNE, WINNER: “Congratulations Dad and happy birthday. This is probably the real definition of a racehorse. When he was turned out for a little while he was not happy. He did not like being at the ranch; as soon as he came back to the track it was straight to business. This is what he loves to do. If he didn’t hit the board our plans would have definitely changed. There are no plans, as always the horse will tell the trainer what to do and the trainer lets us know what he wants to do but it is always about the horse.”“I am thrilled for the horse and thrilled for anyone who has been involved with him. He is a super nice horse, and everybody has just done a great job with him, Jeff (Mullins) in particular.”NOTES: The winning owners are Red Baron’s Barn LLC or Rancho Temescal LLC.
