Musquin: “Coming off two wins and going into Triple Crown format, you know it’s going to be intense. I showed great riding in all three Main Events but unfortunately, I had issues in the first two that kept me from taking the overall win tonight. The last race, I put it all together with a great start and rode like myself. I was so happy to have a clear track ahead of me and it was super enjoyable to ride in the lead.”
