    Jockey Corey Brown said:

    “I can’t believe it. I have been back here from overseas about nine months and slowly and surely getting back to where I was.

    “It is so special. I have my family with me and the girls are old enough to come to the races and enjoy it.

    “I am lost for words.”

    Trainer Joseph O’Brien said:

    “I can’t believe it.

    “His preparation went really good, and Corey gave him an unbelievable ride.

    “The lads at home and the lads here have done an unbelievable job. All the lads at home, all year round, have done a great job with him.”
