Fred “Cappy” Capossela Quotes


Art Magnuson, assistant to Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Maleeh (No. 1): “I was a little worried about the rail [post], watching the races all day today. He stepped it up. It was a tough race, and you don’t know until you try. We were in a very good spot. I was only worried about how much horse [Eddie Castro] had under him, but I liked where we were.”

HOLLIE HUGHES (NYB) QUOTES


David Jacobson, winning trainer of Saginaw (No. 4): “He still has it, and I think, hopefully, this is the beginning of a long campaign for 2013. [We’ll take it] race by race. He might need another two months off, or we might get him back in next week, but that’s totally up to him.”

“You always wonder if you give them a layoff how they’re going to come back. Today, he showed a lot of heart. Hopefully, he’ll only improve off this. He’s not the fastest horse I’ve ever had, but he has the biggest heart.”

AFFECTIONATELY QUOTES


Ray Handal, assistant to winning trainer Anthony Dutrow, of Twice the Lady (No. 5): “This filly has been training great. She stayed up here after her last race, and Tony did a great job placing her and finding the spot. She’s a tough filly to find a race for. He nominated her and it came up nice. She’d been doing so good, I was pretty confident coming into the race. R Gypsy Gold looked tough but our filly showed her stuff today. We’ll see what happens but we’ll probably look for a similar spot.”

Cornelio Velasquez, winning jockey aboard Twice the Lady (No. 5): “I think the Pletcher horse [R Gypsy Gold] is a very tough horse, and I wanted to run a good second, but I had a lot of horse. The horse in front [Stephanie Jayne] wanted to go easy. I wanted to put pressure on at the three-eighths pole, but he had a lot of horse. My filly stayed strong.”
