$600,000 Apple Blossom (G1) Quotes


Steve Asmussen, trainer Untapable, 1st – “I was awfully concerned with how sharp she's been, the works that she's put in," Asmussen said. "I thought Johnny did a great job with her into the first turn. Once they lined out down the backside, I thought she was really in a commanding position and ran extremely well from there. I can't say enough how proud I am ... a Winchell homebred. So much of the family are Winchell family horses.”

Quotes from the $300,000 Maker’s 46 Mile


Tristan Barry (assistant to Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Jack Milton)

“We had two plans. If he broke well, we were going to sit close to the pace and pounce. If he didn’t, we were going to sit back and make one run. Plan B worked well.”

On the next race for Jack Milton
“Todd will talk to the owner (Gary Barber) and see where we go next.”

Oaklawn Barn Notes - Thursday, April 9 - Arkansas Derby updates


American Pharoah Settles Back in to Oaklawn

American Pharoah, a Zayat Stables homebred who is trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, is in ninth place with 60 points so he is assured of a spot in the Kentucky Derby if he performs as expected in Saturday’s $1 million Arkansas Derby (G1).

“He shipped well and has been doing great since he got there,” said Baffert by phone from his Southern California base. “We’re excited about the race and looking forward to it. We’re not thinking about the points. The main thing right now is to take one race at a time. Hopefully, he runs well and comes out of it well. Every time he runs we learn more and more about him.”
