Cool Coal Man galloped 1 1/2 miles under exercise rider Megan Smillie. Trainer Nick Zito explained how he got his name. "(Owner) Mr. LaPenta was running out of names. It was hard for him to name because every name he put in (was rejected). So I told Timmy (Poole), my assistant, 'Put down Cool Coal Man, because he's kind of a cool horse and he's by Mineshaft.'"
