Man o’ War (G1) Quotes


Tom Albertrani, winning trainer of Twilight Eclipse (No. 4): "It's been very satisfying for everybody that's involved and for his connections to [finally] get that Grade 1. I know we've been beaten in a couple of spots but he shows up every time. I think [in previous races], the horses were just that good; you know you have horses like Main Sequence. Without a horse like [that] in the race, this horse looks like a champion himself, but to his credit he did train really well coming into this race. I thought we would have had a little bit of a harder time, especially with the slow fractions, but he was able to get there."

Today, I liked the race shape today and the way he rode her. She's a pretty talented filly.

Peter Pan (G2) Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Madefromlucky (No. 2) and third-place finisher and beaten favorite Two Weeks Off (No. 4): "The Belmont Stakes is something we'd talked about a while back. We felt [Madefromlucky] would keep going and going and going. We wanted to find out where he fit and the Peter Pan has historically been a good prep for the Belmont. He earned his way in if he comes out of this well and trains accordingly."
