Winning trainer Saeed bin Suroor said, "The horse ran this time with older horses. This gives us confidence for
the future to see if he is good enough to run in the Dubai World Cup.
We'll keep out options open for next year. The horse is always improving
in his races. When I saw the pace, it looked like it was really fast.
The horse was sitting in nice position. I talked to the jockey before
the race, he didn't need directions, really. The last two furlongs, it
looked there were two horses coming close to him. But the horse has
plenty of speed and class to make him win the race easy."
Asked where Discreet Cat would go next, he added, "He's going to
run in Dubai, maybe the Maktoum Challenge before the World Cup. There is
also the Godolphin Mile, but we are looking forward to the World Cup. Next year, he will be an older horse. He'll be stronger and
the distance will be fine for him. I'm sure he will improve. The way he
won today was brilliant. He would be one of the best horses next year in
the U.S. This is the best race he's ever run."
