Trainer Steve Asmussen said, "I don't want to go any further without thanking Jess (Jackson) and Barbara (Banke, Jackson's wife and co-owner of Curlin) for the opportunity to put that much money aside to let this horse develop and to let this happen. To make history - the all-time money-winning horse in North America -- it's very special. The job that (assistant) Scott Blasi and (exercise rider) Carmen Rosas have done with him on a day-to-day basis enabled him to maintain the consistency. For him to be able to carry the weight of expectation, I'm very proud."
