Jamaica Handicap (G1) quotes


Malcom Pierce, winning trainer of Up With the Birds (No. 11): "[Jockey] Cornelio [Velasquez] did a fantastic job to save ground around the first turn. I was a little worried that they were going a little too slow up front, and we were eight or nine lengths out of it, but he's a nice horse and he kicked when he asked him. You've got to give the jock a lot of credit and the horse a lot of credit."

SANTA ANITA SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIP QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

MIKE SMITH, POINTS OFFTHEBENCH, WINNER: “I thought he could win today. Thinking it and doing it are two different things, but I did think it. All we had left was to do it. He’s very talented. Maldonado (on Distinctiv Passion) looked like he was getting away from us and I wanted to try and time it with this horse because if you hit the front too soon, he pulls up a little. Then I looked up and he was going a whole lot easier than he was supposed to be. He has some turn of foot, and I hit the front too soon, but he still held on. He pulled up nice and happy, well within himself. He’s a very talented horse.”

L.A.WOMAN STAKES QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

VICTOR ESPINOZA, TEDDY’S PROMISE, WINNER: “It was nice and easy today. I didn’t want to push or anything since the race (Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint on Nov.2) is less than a month away. I want to win but I don’t want to hurt her, she’s a filly, so she’s more sensitive. Everything worked out well and it was a good race.”

CITY OF HOPE MILE STAKES QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

MIKE SMITH, NO JET LAG, WINNER: “I have a lot of respect for Simon (Callaghan). In the paddock he told me it wouldn’t surprise him one bit if this horse won, to trust him. That’s all he had to say. I have the utmost respect for him and his opinion, so when he said that I knew I was live. I guess he got off a little slow last race, but he broke OK today. Actually, he was pretty aggressive the first part of the race but I just jammed him in behind, European style, like he’s used to and that turned out good enough.

Shadwell Turf Mile (G1) Quotes


Dale Romans (winning trainer of Silver Max)

On Silver Max’s improved form in the past year

“He had management issues. I threw him to the wolves probably a little quicker than I should have, but we backed up and regrouped and he’s strong this fall. We had a tired horse last fall – this fall we’re just peaking.”

Ken Ramsey (who owns the winner, We Miss Artie, with his wife, Sarah)

$400,000 First Lady (G1)


Jimmy Bell (president of Darley, representing winning owner Godolphin Racing LLC, lessee)

“Today she was ‘Better Lucky.’ Last couple of times she’s been a little unlucky, took wide trips and ran great races. We’ve been looking at this race for quite a while. Julien (Leparoux) gave her a great ride and (trainer) Tommy (Albertrani) had her to the minute tuned up. We were Better Lucky today and got it done.”

Trainer Luis Olivares (Sr. Quisqueyano): “Two turns helps this horse a lot. I was concerned when I ran him a (one-turn) mile the other day. He relaxes more when he goes two turns. When I saw :24 and :47, I knew they were dead. I knew how he was training. He was training real well.

$400,000 Darley Alcibiades (G1)


Mark Casse (winning trainer of My Conquestadory)

On whether he was worried when she had to check on the backstretch

“A little worried? My thoughts were, ‘Here we have this great filly and she’s not going to be able to show how great she was.’ I wasn’t upset or worried for me, I was worried for her, because I wanted her to be able to show you how great she was. That was my concern.”

$200,000 Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix (G3)


Tom Amoss (winning trainer of Sum of the Parts)

“I made a grave error with him last spring: I brought him back too quick and tried to do too much with him before I ran him, and it cost me. That’s how training goes. When you make those kinds of mistakes, you’re going to have to sit and wait, which is what we did and he came back really good this spring. I told the group I was with, ‘This the most athletic horse I’ve trained. He’s the quickest horse I’ve ever trained out of the gate.’ He really showed that today. All the credit goes to the horse.”
