LONG ISLAND (G3) QUOTES
Rodolphe Brisset, assistant to winning trainer Bill Mott, of Starformer (No. 1): “Nobody knows [how they will handle the soft going] until you try. We scratched her from the Flower Bowl thinking she may not handle the soft going. She then ran a very good race in the Spinster; she was fourth. I guess if you have to take a shot, it was today.
Edgar Prado, winning jockey aboard Starformer (No. 1): “It’s been raining and snowing, and a lot of the water goes to the inside. I had the No. 1 post position, so I had to come running out of there and take her to the outside. It seemed like the plan worked out beautiful. She was happy up there, enjoying the trip, and when the other horse came to her she felt the other horse and picked it up at the end. Me and her, we get along pretty good.”
