New York Turf Writers Cup Steeplechase (G1) Quotes
Jonathan Sheppard, winning trainer and owner of Italian Wedding (No. 1): "He's a tough, honest little horse. He seems to like Saratoga. He won up here two years ago. Obviously, he ran well in the Smithwick [second]. It's a handicap, so he was getting a little bit of weight from some of the top horses. Bernie [Dalton] seems to really suit him. He is a horse that I bred myself. I own his dam and his grandmother, and it means a lot. It was a fun race, and I was really proud of him."
Does winning this (race 14 times) ever get old? "Not really, no. I hope I can do it again."
