Bay Ridge Quotes

John Morrison, winning trainer of Saythreehailmary's (No. 4): "She was coming into this race well and I knew she was going to run well and everything worked out. Jose gave her a perfect trip and I'm just happy about the results. We'll see how she comes out of this before we decide where to go next but we were looking at the Winter Showcase Day in February as a possibility. She's honest, she gives you everything she's got every time."

Thunder Rumble (NYSS) Quotes

Mike Hushion, winning trainer of Loki's Vengeance (No. 2): "He's consistent in the mornings. He keeps himself looking like a million dollars. Everybody always says, 'boy, you've got him looking good today,' but he always looks good. A lot of good horses stay like that, tough horses."

Cigar Mile (G1) Quotes

Christophe Clement, winning trainer of Tonalist (No. 5) and runner-up Red Vine (No. 3): "I'm always a little bit worried when I run him. The race was run in a funny way; they went so slow early on, which I didn't think was great for us. But that's what good horses do - they win and they overcome things. Great ride by Johnny [Velazquez]. I'm a very lucky man. They both ran very well. Joel [Rosario] came back and said he was very unlucky [on Red Vine]. The fun thing for me, as a trainer, was having the two best horses in the race. I'll have to talk with Mr. [Robert Evans about next year], but no matter what, they're both going to have a break."

Comely (G3) Quotes

Dallas Stewart, winning trainer of Forever Unbridled (No. 9) (By telephone): "She has been a solid horse all year; ran second and third to I'm a Chatterbox a few times. We gave her a break after the [Kentucky] Oaks and she'd been training great. She came up there ready to run. There are a lot of Grade 1's next year and at Saratoga and I think she's capable if we handle it right."

Remsen (G2) Quotes

Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Mohaymen (No. 3): "He's a very nice horse. Junior rode him great, he did everything right and it's a big win for the team. He did trickle [blood] a tiny bit last time, so we actually wait right up until they require Lasix to use it and today it worked out great. We also schooled him a lot at the gate after the way he acted last time. It was so unlike him, he had never shown anything like that at the gate when he reared up in there, so we did school him a bit coming up to this race and it worked out well. I was a little anxious when they were turning for home but it's great to win for Shadwell and I trained [Mohaymen's dam] Justwhistledixie, so it's special to have this horse be this good."
