"Hap came through for us then and came through for us again today," Mott said. "It was our first win of the meet and, hopefully, that will get things going for us. Hap looks as good as he did last year. He's obviously more seasoned now. He won this race as easily as he did last year. It is a very good race for him. I'm thinking about the Arlington Million (August 18th). There's a very good possibility that he and King Cugat could run in there. I might give Jerry [Bailey] the option of which one he wants to ride. I know he likes Hap an awful lot, and I'm sure his agent (Ron Anderson) will have something to say about it as well. I think he's better at a mile and an eighth than he is at a flat mile. I have no reason to believe that he couldn't stretch out a little farther, whether he would be quite as effective I don't know. He relaxes well early on and always has a good punch to him. My gut feeling is he could probably get the mile and a quarter [at Arlington].""Hap is a very good horse," said Elliott Walden, trainer of runner-up Royal Strand. "My horse is nice and honest. I thought going into the race we were second-best, and coming out of the race, I think we're second-best. He was in an allowance yesterday, but when I saw there were only six entered, I wanted to run him in here. Plus, the race came off the turf yesterday anyway. We'll shop around and find a spot for him. You have to keep this horse moving."
