JOE ROCCO JR., jockey of Valiant Boy Sbfar (winner) – “He ran very well today. The horse in front of me was fighting hard and my horse was getting tired but he timed it right and got to the wire first. The only difference between the horse this year and last year was he had a race under his belt going into it last year. This year he’s come off a long layoff and we were a little concerned about his fitness level, but he handled himself well. Good horses make good jockeys; whether it’s Thoroughbred, Arabian, it doesn’t matter. We’re all in the same boat, we all need nice horses.”


ELIZABETH MERRYMAN, trainer of Valiant Boy Sbfar (winner) – “There were a bunch of really nice horses in there today and it was hard for him coming off of such a long layoff without a prep race. But he fought his way through and his class showed. Joe and I talked in the paddock beforehand that without a prep race, we were going to have to use his energy wisely and he did. We were very proud of him.”
