Schuylerville (G3) Quotes

Steve Asmussen, winning trainer (DH) of Brazen Persuasion (No. 4): “She broke sharp, was away real cleanly. The entry tackled her immediately. Coming into the stretch, I thought she got a little separation, and then you saw the other filly coming, but they fought really well to the wire.”

Sunset Handicap

Jockey Quotes

GARY STEVENS, MARKETING MIX, Winner: "(Trainer) Tom (Proctor) told me in the paddock to just take the race to them. He said this mare can gallop faster than the rest of them. I didn't know what the Brazilian horse (Hawk's Eyes) was going to do and (his rider) Victor (Espinoza) was intent on getting the lead. I couldn't have paid to have a better rabbit out in front of me. I just let my mare gallop. I had it in my head to two-minute lick her to the three-eighths pole and set her down and work her three eighths of a mile. I don't know if (Proctor) was necessarily using this as a tune up for the (Grade I, $750,000) Beverly D (Aug. 17 at Arlington Park), but it sure worked out. She was very, very happy."
