NEW YORK STALLION SERIES “THE FIFTH AVENUE DIVISION” QUOTES


Rudy Rodriguez, winning trainer of Kelli Got Frosty (No. 3): “She’s very nice. I was very glad the owner gave her to me to train. She’s tall, but I don’t think she’s finished growing yet. Hopefully she’ll keep improving a little bit.”

Joel Rosario, winning jockey aboard Kelli Got Frosty (No. 3): “I just followed the horse on the lead. She was going easy on the lead, and I tried to take my time before I made my move. She’s a pretty horse and she does everything right, and I have a lot of confidence in her. It looked like a little distance should be good, too.”

NEW YORK STALLION SERIES “THE GREAT WHITE WAY DIVISION” QUOTES


Dominick Schettino, winning trainer of Meeker Avenue (No. 2): “Ramon [Dominguez] said [Meeker Avenue] was a little nervous at the break; he didn’t get away as well as he wanted him to. He ran well. He was a little intimidated along the inside. He’s still maturing and learning. He’ll get better with more racing. He was in tight the whole race. It’s a learning process, but he ran a hell of a race.”

Ramon Dominguez, winning jockey aboard Meeker Avenue (No. 2): “I was pleased because that definitely wasn’t the plan. I was looking to be on the lead or close behind. When he didn’t get away that well I was concerned because he was on the inside, a little shy, with a horse outside. Turning for home, he had to squeeze through a pretty narrow hole. He kept on trying. He’s already a pretty decent horse, but he’s going to prove to be even better.”

OZONE PARK, N.Y. – There was a large deficit between the winner of Friday’s sixth race and the rest of the field as Unlimited Budget ran away to a 9 ½-length debut victory.

After brushing off a challenge from 1-2 favorite Brilliant Jewel near the quarter pole, Unlimited Budget needed only moderate urging from jockey John Velazquez to stretch her advantage as Squeal came from off the pace to nab second.

LONG ISLAND (G3) QUOTES


Rodolphe Brisset, assistant to winning trainer Bill Mott, of Starformer (No. 1): “Nobody knows [how they will handle the soft going] until you try. We scratched her from the Flower Bowl thinking she may not handle the soft going. She then ran a very good race in the Spinster; she was fourth. I guess if you have to take a shot, it was today.
