Thomas Milford, Owner Milford Farms: But that's exactly why you're here, Shawn.
George Carson, Head Trainer at Milford Farms: Oh, brother! Why, we can't even tell when they're two-year-olds. Even after we've tested them plenty against each other we sometimes let a future winner go to the sales.

Monk Claxton: I still wonder how a thing like that could happen.
William Peterson: Well, people who have had freedom for as long as we've had sometimes take it for granted. Come election day, they're lazy, or callous. Same thing. However, it's done. Our job is to get it undone.

Gen. Ulysses S. Grant: Have you thought about how you're going to get back?
