Gotham (G3) Quotes


Rick Violette, winning trainer of Samraat (No. 1A): "This is a real horse now. We knew he had a shot to be a real horse after the Withers; he proved he is a real horse today. This was a good field. It was a deep field of horses. The weight had me worried. We picked up five pounds from last time; that's a big shift. I'd be lying if I said we weren't already thinking [about the Kentucky Derby]. At this stage, we didn't want to do anything that would prevent us from going to the Derby. A couple of races before the Derby probably toughens him, but this was another stretch-long, hard duel, but Jose [Ortiz] never hit him. He's an honest racehorse and there might be a little left. Today, he graduated big time. His last race was a terrific race and this was a notch above that. He was pretty impressive today. He leaves for Florida tomorrow. The Wood [Memorial, Grade 1, $1 million, April 5] is a real possibility. That would be our best option as long as the horse cooperates and tells us that we should get on a plane and come up for it."

Gravesend Handicap Quotes


David Jacobson, winning trainer of Strapping Groom (No. 4): "If he's not quite back to that Forego race, he's definitely headed in that direction. He came out of the Fall Highweight like a million dollars and has been getting better and better. He had a quarter-crack [after the Forego] we were working on. I was being a little aggressive running him, and he still ran well. That's all grown out now and it's a thing of the past."
