Shuvee Handicap (G3) Quotes


Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Antipathy (No. 3): "It was a great performance. Team McLaughlin needed a win; we haven't run that many live ones. We were real happy to get a win.

Lake George (G2) Quotes


Graham Motion, trainer of winner Daring Dancer (No. 2):
"[Jockey] Alan [Garcia] said she never picked up the bridle [in the loss at Belmont, when fifth in the Wonder Again]. I honestly believe it had to be the soft ground. I was having kittens in the paddock here when it started to rain, because it held off all afternoon, but she was a different horse today. Right from the beginning today, she was on the bridle. Alan gave her beautiful ride and was very patient for her today."

The bay Tapit colt looks to continue his progression and extend his win streak to three in Saturday's Grade 2, $600,000 Jim Dandy for 3-year-olds at Saratoga Race Course.
