Stakes Quotes:  Lecomte Stakes & Silverbulletday Stakes

GRADE III Lecomte Stakes

Corey Lanerie (jockey, Mo Tom, winner): “It was good, he broke really good and got pinched a little bit going into the first turn. We got knocked a little off stride there but he gathered himself up really good. Down the backside I was pretty confident, especially when I called on him to get in a little bit better position. On the middle of the turn I was going to try to maybe weave my way through but I had so much horse I said, ‘let me just put him in the clear.’”

$150,000 Hal’s Hope (G3) Quotes

Todd Pletcher (Trainer, Mshawish): “I have a lot of respect for Valid. I know him from running against Liam’s Map and Madefromlucky this year, he’s a tough horse to get by. I was a little concerned when he made the lead. You know when you go to fight with him he’s going to fight back. I think Javier (Castellano) knew that as well.

Trainer Brian Lynch (Heart to Heart): “He’s tough when he makes the lead and gets to dictate the terms. I’ve always felt he’s a superior turn runner and he showed it again today going into that bottom turn there.
