Foxwoods King’s Bishop (G1) Quotes
Todd Pletcher, trainer of winner Capo Bastone (No. 3): "He's shown, on his good days, that he's good enough to compete in a race like this. He was pretty close to Forty Tales in the Derby Trial, and it seemed like he was training better than ever. Based off his breeze with Verrazano [on Sunday], we felt like it was time to take a shot. It seemed like everything was gelling at the right time, and he was sitting on a good one, so we felt like, 'Let's try a big one.' It seems like he has found his niche. I think he gets a mile, no problem, but this was a good set-up for him today."
