Alex Cole, racing manager for co-owners Jim and Fitti Hay said, "Of course it's not (much of a rivalry), we met him 3 times and we beat him 3 times. Gio Ponti must be sick of the sight of us. You'd have to (return to the U.S.) wouldn't you? The Breeders' Cup (Turf), that'd be under consideration. But we do what Aidan tells us to do." Cape Blanco earned an automatic entry into the Turf with this win, part of the Breeders' Cup Challenge "Win and You're In" program.
