Airline Breeders’ Cup Turf quotes

Ryan Moore (jockey, Conduit, 1st) – “I was stuck behind a lot of horses early but that didn’t worry me. I got a nice spot down the backside and I went inside to move up. Last year went about as planned but this year wasn’t according to plan. I knew I was going to get there.”

Sir Michael Stoute (trainer, Conduit, 1st and Spanish Moon, 4th) – “It’s always a big day for the world championship. It’s a very important race and it was great to see him go and do it two in a row. We’re also pleased with the fourth horse Spanish Moon.”

Elvis Trujillo (jockey, Presious Passion, 2nd) – “The horse didn't want to relax. The first part was a little fast. I know this horse very good. He fights. Doesn't matter how fast we go. The last quarter he'll fight everybody. It's tough to build a big lead like that and try to hold on. Even when he (Conduit) came up to me I thought I was going to win. The other horse just got past me in the last sixteenth.”

Mary Hartmann (trainer, Presious Passion, 2nd) – “I thought he ran his race. He laid it all on the line and he just got caught. He fought back. He just doesn’t like to let them go by.”

Frankie Dettori (jockey, Dar Re Mi, 3rd) – “The race unfolded about the way I thought it would. She really ran super. Conduit beat me a length in the Arc and he beat me a length again here today, so the form is there. The owners are very pleased, so it was worth the challenge.”

John Gosden (trainer, Dar Re Mi, 3rd) – “She ran a great race. It was a little tight from the quarter-pole but that is racing. She ran absolutely great. The first two – well you know what they are – they are fantastic horses. It was a real race. She ran great against the colts and older horses. I couldn’t be more pleased.”
