Jockey Garrett Gomez added, "Ben told me don't rush him too much because then he won't come home. So I was back there twiddling my thumbs, hoping that he (Wildcat Brief) would help me a little bit. Especially when they go that slow up front, you'd like to see a horse encourage you and want to take you up to them, but he wouldn't want to do that. Then when I did squeeze him he came home. He's just the type of horse you just have to get after and then he delivers."
