The inquiry was that the two (Stubbins) was trying to squeeze in between the one (Sparky Ville) myself and the five (Cistron) all at once. We were all pretty tight in there. I did a pretty conscious job of keeping him straight and then (Sparky Ville) started to drift out a little bit and made it worse. Fortunate for us he was able to stay up and he ran extremely well.”TRAINER QUOTESDOUG O’NEILL, TRAINER, WILDMAN JACK, WINNER: “He came back from Dubai in perfect shape and he continued to train well.  This race came up tough, like a Breeders’ Cup race.  It’s nice to have Big Money Mike, I can tell you that.  Mid-way through the race, it looked like maybe we were dropping out of it, but he still had horse.  I know this is a big win for Glenn Sorgenstein, he owns the horse and he bred him.  This is huge.”NOTES: The winning owner is W C Racing Inc.last_img read more
