Big Brown was never far off the pace the entire race, breaking 5th and moving up to 3rd position after a quarter mile.

Trainer Richard Dutrow said on Sunday morning, "He's bouncing around the shed row. His legs are good and tight. He ate everything. I'm sitting in a good spot right now. Every time he's run he's just amazed everyone. In the Kentucky Derby, post 20, five- wide around the first turn, four-wide around the far turn. Yesterday, when Kent let him go, he opened up six lengths in five strides. We saw another little new part of him. He was down on the inside with horses in front of him, a horse outside of him. He was down on the inside. The way he just shuts down in his races, it seems like a mile and a half is not going to be a problem with him. He´s not an aggressive type horse where he wants to run off with the jock early on. He´ll do whatever Kent wants him to do at the time. He just falls into the race. That´s going to help him get a mile and a half."
