Gazelle (G2) Quotes


Rudy Rodriguez, winning Trainer of Condo Commando (No. 5): "She broke well today. I was very happy. I told Joel [Rosario] if she broke good, just take it from there. She's a very nice filly. I don't know if [we will have the favorite for the Kentucky Oaks], but hopefully we can make it. It's still a long way to go. Hopefully, she stays sound and we take it from there. That's our goal."

Gravesend Quotes


David Jacobson, winning trainer of Salutos Amigos (No. 4): "He was spectacular, as usual. The race laid out just the way we thought it would, with Dads Caps and Green Gratto setting the early pace. [Jockey] Irad [Ortiz, Jr.] did an amazing job again; there's not that much to say. We were hoping he would get through [along the inside], and then [Irad] lost his stick. It gets to be a concern, but this horse went into the race as good as he's ever gone into a race. It was a great performance and a great ride by Irad."

Queens County Quotes


Mike Repole, winning owner of Micromanage (No. 1a) and third-place finisher Misconnect (No. 1): "It's like being a 13-year-old kid again. I love it here at Aqueduct. We really didn't want to run the two horses together, we kind of wanted to split them up. [But] they were both training really, really well, and if they're both going to stay here, this is the spot. I thought Misconnect ran really, really well and Micro, getting off the turf and back to the dirt, at a mile-and-an-eighth, is really, really good. Manny Franco rode him very well for the first time he rode him. They'll stay in New York. There's another stakes on January 19 [$100,000 Jazil]. They'll get a little bit of a break over the holidays and bring them back in January."

Fall Highweight Handicap (G3) Quotes


David Jacobson, winning trainer of Salutos Amigos (No. 1): "I wasn't concerned at all with the wet track, because he was 3-for-3 in the mud. I wanted it to keep raining all day - I was doing a rain dance. Cornelio did an amazing job as usual. We'll take a look at the Gravesend [Dec. 26] next, but it's up to the horse to let us know."
