Jason Servis, winning trainer of Hangover Kid (No. 1), by telephone: "It was thrilling; I wish I could have been there. I felt really good having [Jose] Lezcano on him; he's been riding unbelievable. The only thing I told him is ride him like you own him."

Lynbrook (NYB) Quotes


Leah Gyarmati, winning trainer of Wonder Gal (No. 6): "There haven't been many maiden races for New York-bred fillies. We hope she lives up to our expectations. She's young, still. She's big, but she's still young. You have to keep that in mind. There are bound to be some bumps along the way."

Belmont Oaks Invitational (G1) Quotes

Suburban Handicap (G2) Quotes


Chad Brown, winning trainer of Zivo (No. 3) and ninth place finisher Last Gunfighter (No. 5): "Jose rode [Zivo] perfectly. We've always put him in races we think fit him. This horse has really come around well and it was time to step out of New York-bred company and try him in an open company race with a big purse. Tom Coleman, the owner, who bred the horse, we work as a team. He said, 'Let's just enter and look.' All the way until this morning, he wasn't really committed to coming in from the Hamptons. He said, 'You want me to come?' I said, 'Let's try it. The horse is training well enough and he loves Belmont, let's try it.' Once I saw the strong pace, I knew he'd come running. That last eighth was definitely as strong as I've seen from him. But then again, he's a horse that's only gotten better."

Belmont Derby Invitational (G1) Quotes


Shug McGaughey, winning trainer of Mr Speaker (No. 9): "He definitely redeemed himself; his last race was very disappointing. He trained well coming up to today and we changed our game plan; I wanted him back. Jose [Lezcano] rode a great race on him. We're tickled that Martin [Panza] carded this race and we're tickled to death that we won it."

Belmont Sprint Championship (G3) Quotes


Brian Lynch, winning trainer of Clearly Now (No. 3): "When he broke a little slow I thought, 'Oh boy, here we go again,' but when he cruised up on the inside near the 4 ½ pole I could tell Jose [Lezcano] had a lot of horse. He had a legitimate pace in front of him, so it was just about finding a hole, and when it came, he went by them."

"We'll look at some spots at Saratoga, and ultimately, the Breeders' Cup would be in play."

Dwyer (G3) Quotes


Linda Rice, winning trainer of Kid Cruz (No. 1): "I was a little nervous about whether they were going to go fast enough today. Irad [Ortiz] made a strong effort from the gate to make sure he got engaged earlier, so we just didn't hand it over to a slow pace. He did a beautiful job. The horse seems to be getting better all the time - perfecting his trade.

Mother Goose (G1) Quotes


Steve Asmussen, winning trainer of Untapable (No. 2): "I'm very pleased with her race today. I loved how quiet she was pre-race and in the paddock. She turned off right after a little trouble at the start and was pretty relaxed. She picked it up when she needed to and appeared to be looking around quite a bit in the stretch, but it was her first time [at Belmont]. All of her previous victories had been where she was training, so I think that this was a pretty good step. I think she's a very special filly."

New York (G2) Quotes


Bill Mott, winning trainer of Riposte (No. 2): "I think the longer distances have probably helped her. She broke a little slow, so she was fourth instead of second or third, but she was still within range of the leaders. She rated very nicely and kicked very well. She punched pretty good off a slow pace."

"We have nothing planned for her right now. It's too close to run her back in the Diana, so she won't do that."
