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."

Damon Runyon (NYB) Quotes


Rick Violette, winning trainer of Samraat (No. 1): "I thought the two turns would be right up his alley; pedigree-wise it's supposed to be up his alley, and it was. The pace slows down a little bit, he gets into a nice rhythm, and the only thing that concerned me was his preparation. We've had a lot of bad weather and he missed some training, but he was good enough to overcome that today."

Queens County Quotes


Rajiv Maragh, winning jockey aboard Jonesy Boy (No. 5): "We went in with the intention of sitting back and letting him fall into his stride. I was hoping that the speed would develop, and it sure did. Midway on the turn I saw I had a great shot to win; I only had a couple lengths to make up and it seemed like my horse was just getting into his best stride. At the top of the lane, he switched leads and really put in a good run. I felt if he maintained the run, he was going to win, and he did."

Garland of Roses Quotes


Leonard Dunne, assistant to Eddie Kenneally, winning trainer of Ullapool (No. 4): "She doesn't want company - she likes do it by herself and likes to be up there. When she hears horses behind her, her heart gets big. Like Irad [Ortiz] said, when he turned for home and the other [riders] were hitting them and slapping it woke her up and she went on about her business."
