Comely (G3) Quotes


Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Wedding Toast (No. 2): "She sometimes doesn't break so well, but today she broke well and [Javier Castellano] put her on the lead. She was very game. It looked like the other filly was going to go right by her, but she dug in and showed a lot of gameness. We won a tough photo. She's a very nice filly. We'll discuss plans for her."

The thing I thought [Stopchargingmaria] had going for her is a good foundation and the fact that she has a good mind. She's very ratable. She's kind. She's not the kind you have to worry about getting too headstrong, but it's a mile and an eighth, and it's a long way for 2-year-old fillies."
