New York (G2) Quotes

Leana Willaford, assistant to winning trainer Bill Mott, of Starformer (No. 6): “She ran great. I think the ground was a little too soft for her the other day, so we were pretty confident going into this race. She had a beautiful work last weekend and she certainly fits with these horses. Edgar [Prado] rode her perfect; he always does. He knows her well and he’s a very smart jockey.”

Edgar Prado, winning jockey aboard Starformer (No. 6): “Well, you know, the last time she had an excuse; the ground was very soft and I don’t think she was very happy. Today was firm ground, she broke running out of there and I was able to sit behind the leaders most of the first part of the race. When I called on her, she fought hard and kicked in strong.”
