Waya Quotes

H. Graham Motion, winning trainer of Qushchi (No. 1): "I think she had been a little unlucky. She was just nailed right on the wire at Churchill last time. She actually was interfered with by my other filly, Strathnaver, at Keeneland."

"That was vintage Edgar [Prado] today. He waited as long as he could. She ran a powerful race. She has improved a lot since we had her."

"We'll think about the Glens Falls [Grade 3, $150,000, September 2], but it might be a little quick."

Edgar Prado, jockey aboard winner Qushchi (No. 1): "It looked like there were a couple of horses with speed and they tried to slow it down but they went on, and it made my job easier. I was able to break and get outside and let her do something the first part of the race. I felt very comfortable going down the backside, like at the seven-eighths pole, when my filly was getting closer and closer very effortlessly. At that point, I was very happy and saying, 'Let me find a clear path, turn her loose and see what I got.' She kicked it in pretty strong. She went right on. The way she was moving around the turn, I was feeling pretty comfortable."
