Heartbreaking, that's what it was," said trainer Carl Nafzger after his Kentucky Derby winner was beaten. "We only needed a nose. Curlin ran a hell of a race, but we had Curlin. We should never have let him come back and get us." .... hey, my horse ran a great race today. He just got beat.... Still, Nafzger said his jockey had run the race "beautifully," and both men congratulated their victorious rivals. Borel said if he had to lose to anyone he was glad it was Curlin's Robby Albarado, and Nafzger talked about his fondness for Curlin trainer Steve Asmussen. "Steve is a friend of mine and his horse ran a hell of a race," Nafzger said. "Steve didn't go cry in a car when I kicked his rear in the Derby."....There's more to horse racing than winning, guys," he said. "You know, you've got to appreciate a great horse. When you see a good horse, you better appreciate it. I just think [Street Sense is] as good a horse as he ever was."
