McLAREN “He’s got that much speed…” “He doesn’t know how to harness it yet. That’s the exciting thing… he is going to be a very good horse because it’s all on raw ability at the moment, but I think he’s going to go the whole way. “I love his acceleration. He has a great will to win. He is a real racehorse and it will take him a long way.” James McDonald after his Canonbury win
