Original owner-trainer David Cotey, who sold the horse to the current owners for $400,000 prior to the 2008 Breeders' Cup Juvenile, said from Woodbine, "I am so happy for him. I'm ecstatic. I'd love to be down there to give him a big kiss. "We were all screaming down here in the Finish Line Bar. When I saw him closing on the rail, I yelled, 'Here he comes!' I almost lost my voice. I'm just so happy for him and his connections."

Cotey had purchased Mine That Bird for $9,500 at Fasig-Tipton Kentucky in October 2007. Mine That Bird is the second Canadian champion juvenile to win the Kentucky Derby, after 1983 winner Sunny's Halo.
