"Especially this time of year, there are always memories of Barbaro," Matz said. "One minute he wins the Kentucky Derby in front of 160,000 people, and on Monday afternoon he's out in the paddock rolling around in the grass and having a good time. Those are the things that stand out."
"It's a great feeling to be here after six years, especially with a horse that has a good chance," Matz said. "This doesn't happen too many times and I was lucky enough once. It's hard to believe you can get lucky twice."
