From the Santa Anita Media Workforce:
FLAVIEN PRAT — UNITED (1st):
“Hat’s off to Mr. Mandella, he had him all set to run a mile and one 50 percent currently. He was touring nicely the total way and he responded very well when I asked him to go. My horse likes to be in the race and he likes it when there is a great rate. I wished to continue to be shut to Acclimate, I didn’t want him to get as well uncomplicated of a guide. Like I say, we have been touring well and at the a few eighths pole, I was in handle. He likes the turf programs out here and with the Breeders’ Cup at Del Mar, that is fantastic. Hoping to have a superior calendar year.”
RICHARD MANDELLA — United (1st): The work out rider that rides him weighs about 250 lbs, so placing tiny Flavien Prat to go a little even further is not going to make any difference.
“It’s usually great to be home he’s received quite nicely at Del Mar also, despite the fact that we like The Terrific Race Location.”
SIMILARITIES Amongst THE TIN Male & UNITED: “Apples and oranges. They are two unique horses, but the two incredibly personable. They are virtually like animals. So lucky to have them and have house owners that are affected person. And I can say that the proprietor of the Tin Guy, Ralph Todd, took good recognize for them working the Tin Man Series and had viewed it and been incredibly enthusiastic about it.”
