Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1) Quotes

Christophe Clement, winning trainer of Tonalist (No. 8): "I probably should have removed the blinkers before the Travers. He, obviously, was a bit too aggressive in the Travers. Even so, he didn't quit. I love the way that, even when he got beat in the Travers he went on to the wire."

Flower Bowl (G1) Quotes

Chad Brown, winning trainer of Stephanie's Kitten (No. 9): "She got a beautiful trip, and I'm really proud of this filly; she deserved to get a good, clean trip. That's the third race in a row for us that I felt she ran terrific. She was a little unlucky in the Beverly D. and Diana, and this time [jockey] Johnny [Velazquez] got away from the gate really well and gave her a beautiful trip. The filly did the rest."

Kelso Handicap (G2) Quotes

Rudy Rodriguez, winning trainer of Vyjack (No. 3): "Today, the key was coming out of the gate. Today, he broke good. I was very pleased with the way he was working in the morning, and I was happy to see him win because he'd been training very, very well in the mornings. Going a mile, he doesn't have to break as sharp [as he needs to] going shorter. Today, he broke well, put himself in a very good position and the pace was good for us. He did what we wanted him to do all along; he's a nice horse. To see him get beat was kind of hard, but he was running against some nice horses. To see him show up today was very, very special. Our main goal had been the Cigar Mile [Grade 1, Aqueduct Racetrack, November 29], but now I have to talk to the owner and see what his plans are now."

MIKE SMITH, SHARED BELIEF, WINNER: “They tried to use some tactics on me which made the win today even sweeter. They just kept taking me wide, taking me wide, and I believe if you want to press the pace or take me out a little bit, OK. But doing it at all costs just to get me beat isn’t the way it should be done. It was to the extreme, I thought it was ridiculous. You just don’t do that.”
