Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1) Quotes


Christophe Clement, winning trainer of Tonalist (No. 6): "We're back here, we won this race a year ago and it's great. I thought that even when he got beat this year, he never ran a bad race. He's a top class horse. We're back on top. I'm delighted for Mr. Evans. Obviously, he believed in us all along. And mostly I'm delighted for the horse, I've never lost my faith in the horse. I never thought he was disappointing, he was a bit unlucky for the year, but the way he won today was very impressive. I was very happy with the way Tonalist was travelling. He always looked very comfortable. I thought that at any stage of the race, he could've taken them on. He's back to what I always believed. He's a top class horse. It's a wonderful race, it's great to win it two years in a row. Every start this year, I wouldn't have traded my position with anyone else, even when we got beat. People forget about him, but I never forgot about him."

Quotes from the $1 Million Shadwell Turf Mile (G1)


Brian Lynch (winning trainer of Grand Arch)

“Great to see him, as he gets older, just keep getting better and better. We had this race in mind this year after a game effort last year (second by a length to Wise Dan), and (jockey) Luis (Saez) seems to get along with him fantastic. I was worried about the turf getting a little soft today, but he handled it well. Very exciting finish – makes for a great race.”

(How long race been on radar): "Since the beginning of time, since they broke her. They had this race picked for her and so they weregoing on with this one.

Champagne (G1) Quotes


Dominick Schettino, winning trainer of Greenpointcrusader (No. 2): "He was training good up to the race. His first two races, even though he won, he had tight trips down inside. We talked about the track, being inside, I basically left it up to Joe. He got a little shuffled back at the break and the rest was up to Joe."

Frizette (G1) Quotes


Steve Asmussen, winning trainer of Nickname (No. 5): "Alex Solis and Jason Litt purchased this filly as a yearling. I met with them this winter in Ocala during the sales about the possibility of getting to train for [Larry, Nancy and Jamie Roth]. We went out and looked at the 2-year-olds that they had. When this filly walked out of the barn, it was hard to believe she was one of the 2-year-olds. She just had that look and that feel about her from that moment. For things to come together so nice for our stable, the Roths, Alex and Jason - from thinking and looking at her and hoping to being in the position we are today, a Grade 1 winner of a race of the caliber of the Frizette, is wonderful. In the paddock, she looked like she ran.[Assistant] Toby [Sheets] has done a wonderful job with her. She's a beautiful mare who just ran a very good race. For her to go from three-quarters [to a mile] I definitely was concerned about the off going, mainly because of how big she is. That's a lot of weight to get through the mud. She looked so good coming into the stretch; very professional. I'm extremely proud of her."

Kelso Handicap (G2) Quotes


Peter Miller, winning trainer of Appealing Tale, via telephone (No. 1): "He broke slow, and kind of had to rush up. It wasn't what I was hoping for but once he established himself on the lead he really just ran a great race. Really a super ride from Joe [Talamo] and this win is a credit to our whole team. Stephanie Quarter, my assistant over there, did a great job deputizing. We are all elated. [It's] on to the Breeders' Cup next. We'll cross enter in the Breeders' Cup Sprint and Breeders' Cup [Dirt] Mile but we'll probably lean more on entering in the [Dirt] Mile."
