Empire Classic Handicap (NYB) Quotes

Jimmy Jerkens, winning trainer of Effinex (No. 5): "Today he ran with [ Wood Memorial winner] Wicked Strong's blinkers, the same little black ones [Punkin Pie winner] Classic Point wore. Since I've gotten him, he's gotten stronger. He ran very well in Saratoga. We didn't have a lot of time to get him ready. We threw a lot of work at him and he handled it and ran very well [second in the Albany]. His last race [third, optional claimer, September 28] was a little bit of a disappointment. I think it had more to do with the track, when you couldn't gain on anyone and horses got discouraged coming from behind. But he's done everything right since then and we figured we'd take a shot. We figured the extra eighth of a mile wouldn't hurt, either."

Empire Distaff (NYB) Quotes

Mike Hushion, winning trainer of Princess Violet (No. 5): "It was sweet. She relaxed better than ever and when [jockey Jose Ortiz] stepped on the gas, she came on. It was perfect; pretty simple. We didn't really want her on the lead because we were afraid someone would take premature runs at her, so we were glad to have targets. [Ortiz] said she felt better than ever. After today, [two turns] are certainly not out of the question."

Flag Flies Half-Mast to Honor Memory of Juan Saez

Flag Flies Half-Mast and Jockeys Wear Black Caps at Gulfstream Park West to Honor Memory of Juan Saez

MIAMI GARDENS, FL -- Gulfstream Park West honored the memory of jockey Juan Saez Thursday, when the U.S. flag in the infield flew at half-mast during the 10-race program. The jockeys also wore black caps through the entirety of the program to pay tribute to the 17-year-old apprentice jockey who tragically died Tuesday evening from injuries sustained in a racing accident at Indiana Grand Race Course. Gulfstream Park West jockeys and employees also participated in a moment of silence to honor Saez’ memory in a winner’s circle ceremony following the sixth race. The younger brother of popular South Florida and New York jockey Luis Saez began his riding career in Kentucky in June and had won 89 races from 440 mounts.

Quotes from the $500,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup

Bill Mott (winning trainer of Crown Queen)

“We ran her a couple of times as a 2-year-old, and (owner) Mr. (Ben) Leon wanted to give her some time over the winter to mature and grow up a little bit. It’s worked out perfectly. He made a good call, and she’s undefeated this season and now she’s a Grade 1 stakes winner. It was a very special win for me since I trained her mother (Delta Princess) and her grandmother (Lyphard’s Delta) and a lot of the family (including her multiple champion half-sister, Royal Delta). It’s a very meaningful win for me.”

Knickerbocker (G3) Quotes

Niall Saville, winning trainer of Legendary (No. 6): "This is my first graded stakes; this horse won my first stake a month ago [Japan Racing Association Stakes at Parx Racing]. I'm very, very pleased. I was a little nervous with the long stretch here, but they weren't catching him. It's a huge honor to train for Walter Swinburn, and for them to send me a horse like this it's just been great. I'd won at Saratoga Race Course and at Aqueduct Racetrack, but until this year I hadn't gotten it done at Belmont. This race had been the goal."
