Nashua (G2) Quotes

Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Mohaymen (No. 7): "We were a little worried about the kickback, how he would break, and the others that have had more racing experience than him. But he's a very talented horse and I'm glad he lived up to the betting public's odds. He's got a great pedigree. It's just great to win for Shadwell Stable, Rick Nichols [General Manager of Shadwell Farm] and everybody in Lexington. I've been with them for 22 years, so it's a special win. We definitely have Derby fever. [His next race] would be the [Grade 2] Remsen [at Aqueduct] or the Kentucky Jockey Club at Churchill Downs on the same day [Saturday, November 28]."

Junior Alvarado, winning rider aboard Mohaymen (No. 7): "He was a little upset warming up. He didn't want to be around the pony too much today. Once we got to the gate he didn't want to load and inside he kept rocking back and forth, but when we got to break I just tried to get him in the best position. After the half-mile pole it was all him. He took me on a nice ride, all I tried to do was not fall off."
