Breeders’ Cup - Odds and Ends


Ian Wilkes (Fort Larned, 1st, Classic) – Trainer Ian Wilkes had a not so surprising revelation Sunday morning, a little more than 12 hours after Fort Larned’s front-running victory in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic.

“I didn’t sleep a lot last night,” Wilkes said after his first Breeders’ Cup victory. “It has not really sunk in yet.”

Quotes for the $5 Million Breeders’ Cup Classic


Ian Wilkes (trainer, Fort Larned, 1st) – “We had to be there near the front and he was ready today. He had galloped great over the track. I knew we were good when he broke sharp. That’s where Brian (Hernandez) won the race. We broke sharp and Game On Dude broke bad. I trust Brian because the horse trusts Brian.

“Buff (Bradley) won (Filly & Mare Sprint with Groupie Doll) and Charlie (Lopresti) won (Mile with Wise Dan), and now I won. There was some pressure there after they won. I’m glad we all three did it, because we’re such great friends. We hit the trifecta.”

Quotes for the $2 Million Breeders’ Cup Mile


John Velazquez (jockey, Wise Dan, 1st) – “I just wanted to get him in the right position. When I was able to do that, and you’ve got a horse as good as this, you can expect a result like this.”

Charles Lopresti (trainer, Wise Dan, 1st) – “I was able to use that race at Keeneland (Shadwell Turf Mile) as the perfect setup for today. I didn’t have to do much with him. He proved he was the best horse today. I never had any doubts. I was just a little concerned about how the race would shape up. He’s just a special horse. We’ll probably take him back to our farm in Kentucky and give him some time. We’ll make a plan for him at the first of the year.”

Quotes for the $3 Million Breeders’ Cup Turf


Ramon Dominguez (jockey, Little Mike, 1st) – “I couldn’t commit to being on the lead (because of the distance). I did get a great trip right off the leaders. When I asked him to run, he gave me a great kick.”

Dale Romans (trainer, Little Mike, 1st) – “Our first reaction after the race in New York (Turf Classic) was to shorten him up, but he had been trying to stretch him out all year so we decided to stick to our plan. We talked over the race last night and thought those two horses (Turbo Compressor and Optimizer) would be gunning for the lead. We were going to try to sit right off of them. He showed he could rate. He’s always been an overachiever but he does deserve to be champion.”

Quotes for the $2 Million Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile


Todd Pletcher (trainer, Shanghai Bobby, 1st) – “I kept going back on the Track Barron (at Belmont Park) in his second start. He went pretty fast early, and it looked like he was in trouble, but when horses engaged him, he fought on and found more. I was hoping he was going to be able to do that today. But I was concerned about the fractions. That was our strategy, to be aggressive, the way the track was playing. We didn’t want to get shuffled back.

Quotes for the $1 Million Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint


Mike Smith (jockey, Mizdirection, 1st) – “Before the race, Mike (trainer Puype) told me ‘I don’t care if you ride her around them. I don’t care if you ride her inside them. I don’t care if you ride her in front of them. I don’t care if you ride her from behind – just ride her the way you know you can.’ I was really glad he said that to me because it allowed me to ride her with confidence. When we came across the dirt, I had a lot ground to make up but I was really confident I could.”
