(SOUNDBITE) (Hungarian) OWNER OF RACE HORSE OVERDOSE, ZOLTAN MIKOCZY, SAYING:
"He has a mission. There hasn't been a horse in Hungarian training for many decades that is up to international, or Group One standards. So we would like to prove to the world that although horses here are training under much poorer and simpler conditions than elsewhere, a horse that has real talent is also able to achieve at world levels."

(SOUNDBITE) (Hungarian) TRAINER FOR OVERDOSE, SANDOR RIBARSZKI, SAYING:
"Already on his first serious jobs he showed that he had a fantastic talent. When he raced in Kincsem Park in July, and won by 16 lengths, then we left him in races because he is so explosive. He wanted to race so much that we even had to hold him back from training. So we actually have to hold him back carefully as he knows his job."

"Overdose and his success came in the 24th hour for the Hungarian horse racing, because the horse sport is almost dying and it is thanks to Overdose that the media interest is now directing people's attention to the sport of horse racing."
