Acorn (G1) Quotes
Jim Barnes, assistant to Bob Baffert, winning trainer of Midnight Lucky (No. 5): “I was expecting maybe the 1 [Kauai Katie] to be on the lead, not the 2 [Momentary Magic], but other than that it shaped up as I expected. I wanted to be sitting anywhere from 2 to 2 ½ lengths off the pace, which we were. They were moving right along, and at no point did it look like she was struggling with the racetrack. She’s just a really nice filly and we’re so happy to train her. The plan right now is day by day. We’ll go back to Churchill and go from there.”
Rosie Napravnik, winning jockey aboard Midnight Lucky (No. 5): “We had a great trip. I really liked the post position and we were able to sit off the speed. Kauai Katie actually kind of had to sit back, so it was good for us, too. This filly just did it very easily and she’s a very, very nice filly.”
