Strange how the hand of fate can work. If Johhny V had got stuck on the rail with nowhere to go instead of it parting miraculously like the Red Sea then the Union Rags connections would have been burying their jockey again instead of praising him..juste dire.

Matz was more concerned about getting his bottle of Heineken than talking about the race if you watched his press conference.
Dude inhaled that thing between comments.Pretty sure he'd have downed at least three in about fifteen minutes if he didn't have to answer questions.
Seems like a salty guy and maybe a little bitter but he's been dumped on a bit.Jackson/Lael fired him last August,he's had awful rides on his last two with Leparoux/UR and many have questioned his methods/training ability.He only has this one big horse and a lot of expectations not fulfilled until yesterday.Hopefully this win will calm him down some.Agreed not the classiest guy lately but he's been beat up pretty good the last ten months.
