$1 Million Toyota Blue Grass (G1) Post Position Draw Quotes


Quotes from Connections of Entrants
Jim Cassidy (trainer of Ocho Ocho Ocho, post 1; 6-1 in the morning line)

“The rail is fine. I’d rather be inside than outside in any event. He broke a little slow last time, but he won’t this time.”

Tracey Wilkes (wife of trainer Ian Wilkes, trainer of Gorgeous Bird, post 2; 8-1 in the morning line)

“I had just one instruction for today and that was not to draw the 1 hole, so we are good with both (Wilkes also trains Central Bank Ashland [G1] starter Silverpocketsfull, who drew post 5). (Jockey) Brian (Hernandez Jr.) knows them both and will get them to settle out of the gate.”
