Aljamin Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Shanghai Bobby (No. 3): "It was the first time [John Velazquez] has ridden him. I cautioned him before the race that [Shanghai Bobby] kind of has a tendency to wait when he makes the lead. He was trying to time it and not get there too soon, and not cut it too close, either. He ran really well off the layoff. I thought he ran well enough today to put us in the mix for the Breeders' Cup Sprint or the Dirt Mile, but we'll see how he bounces out of it."

Lonesome Glory Steeplechase (G1) Quotes


Leslie Young, winning trainer of Gustavian (No. 4): "Last year we opted to skip Saratoga. Not that he can't run over firm ground, but it gets a little firmer over the summer. We opted for the same plan [this year]. We freshened him up, happy and healthy coming into Belmont, a big, galloping track. He liked it last year, so we thought, 'Why not for a big Grade 1 like this?'"

Ashley T. Cole (NYB) Quotes


Timothy Hills, winning trainer of Kharafa (No. 1): "I had been watching the races and it seemed like pace wasn't holding up. I started to tell that to Javier [Castellano], but I didn't think it was possible for him to take him back [off the lead]. He said, 'You know, this is a good post to just go.' And I said, 'You know something? He's a good horse. You ride him the way it comes up.' As strong as the horse is, there is no way he'd be able to get him off the pace."
