Wood Memorial (G1) Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Verrazano (No. 8): “He made kind of a quick move on the turn, and then idled a little bit, and made another quick move and idled a bit, which he has a tendency to do, but a very good effort. This race was not only a building block but a very significant race in its own right. I thought he handled everything really well. He’s been very professional. He shipped into Tampa the day of the race, shipped in here only a few days ago and came over from Belmont just a few hours ago. Nothing seems to faze him.”

Up the backside I found myself behind Goldencents and (Bob) Baffert’s other horse (Super Ninety Nine) and I thought I was in a good spot, I really did. I thought even if I get stuck in here for a while that I was in a good spot saving ground right in behind them.
