NYSS Statue of Liberty Division Quotes


David Donk, winning trainer of Selenite (No. 9), fourth-place finisher Lady Kreesa (No. 5), and sixth-place finisher Funky Munky Fever (No. 3):"I really think they're three decent fillies; they all have a future as they get older. [Lady Kreesa] slipped really bad coming out of the gate, I thought she would be up on the pace. [Jockey] Junior [Alvarado] wasn't happy with the turf with [Funky Munky Fever]. They're three decent fillies; I think they all appreciate two turns."


"I think last time - seven-eighths, one turn - I probably can't train a one-turn horse, and they went seven-eighths in 1:20 4/5 seconds. [Lady Kreesa and Funky Munky Fever] ran a really good race last time, and I was disappointed with the way [Selenite] ran. It's nice for one of them to get the money."


Irad Ortiz Jr., winning jockey on Selenite (No. 9): "The day I broke her maiden, she was way back. She didn't break that good that day. Today we wanted to make sure she breaks and got a good trip. We wanted to get the best trip we can and that worked for us today. She won. It was a very good trip, I guess. She was ready today."
