O’Brien said of the two-day stellar performance at Epsom Downs: “I never pay much attention to someone else’s horses. We watched them and you’re always happy to see whatever connections do well, because We know how difficult it is to bring any horse to any race and especially derby To test and then race.
“We will always be alert and really respect everyone and that is how we have always done it. I think it is competitive and there are a lot of good horses that go through different trials on different trips and in different places. Have come in different ways. I think all of them should be really respected.
“I think people should respect it (The.) derby) anyway derby is competitive. I can never remember one that wasn’t.
“There are always different stories and different lines about how the horses are transported to the situation they are in. For me, the derby The most competitive (race) and undoubtedly the most important race of all. In fact the breed of the entire breed is called The . is measured by derby Because it is the worst.
“Some horses come out of it and never show their form again because it’s hard. It’s hard in the beginning and it’s turning left, then right and they have to stay and handle everything. Everyone knows Epsom is a very unusual track and that’s what adds to it. It tests them everywhere, left, right, inside out, speed, stamina, mindset. It really is the ultimate for them have an exam. derby is the all and end all and jockeys go out with that in their mind. Not even an inch has been given anywhere.”

Major markets after impressive wins in Group 3 Ballysacks Stakes and Group 3 Darrinstown Stud derby Tested in Leopardtown, both more than 10 furlongs.
“It has been the target of the Bolshoi in every way. This (colt’s last act) showed us that he is happy and well. The plan was always to visit her last year so we wouldn’t have to visit her in the spring/early summer this year and it went well. The plan was to conduct two tests in Ireland, both in Leopard. Both of them were fine. He came out of Leopardstown last time and everything has been smooth since then. This is a new track he has already run on.
“Leopard is a good place – it’s a little left, but not like the big extreme of Epsom. But you have to hurry, go left and down hill and hill and he looks good that way. Last year st In -Cloud (when fifth in Group One Critérium de Saint-Cloud) it was also a different track and he seemed quite happy there.
