Quotes for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile


Jose Lezcano (jockey, Wise Dan, 1st) – “He stumbled at the break and I had to go easy with him for awhile until he got his stride under him. About the five-sixteenths pole, I could see I could make my move. He ran really great coming home.”

Quotes for the $1.5 million Xpressbet Breeders’ Cup Sprint


Jimmy Barnes (assistant to trainer Bob Baffert, Secret Circle, 1st) – “He’s an amazing horse. If you look at his form, you’ll see he’s only been beaten twice. That last race of his, he ran in 1:07 (1:07 4/5) and the race didn’t take anything out of him. He’s a big, strong, resilient horse and the way he had to run today, coming from out of it, just is all the more amazing.”

Quotes for the $3 million Breeders’ Cup Turf


Ryan Moore (jockey, Magician, 1st) – “He’s one of the best horses I’ve ridden in a long time. He switched off nice at the beginning. I was a little farther back than I wanted to be because he got a bump at the turn and he lost his back end, but he leveled off nicely, got his balance. From there he took me where I wanted to be.”

Quotes for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile


Martin Garcia (jockey, New Year’s Day, 1st) – “My horse doesn’t have that much pace. I was exactly where I wanted to be. I saved ground at every corner. The rail was open and I took it. I didn’t panic. My horse was ready to start running. I thought I had a lot of horse. I had never ridden him in a race, but I have been getting on him in the morning most of the time. We’re starting to get to know each other. It looks like a good team.”

Quotes for the $1 million Geico Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint


Mike Smith (jockey, Mizdirection, 1st) – “I broke better this time (compared to last year’s race). Much more alert. I took advantage of the break and I took the rail right away, which is the best place to be turning right. You get a lot of momentum coming out of that turn going left. Man, she was right there. I was worried I might have been a little too close, but I’m glad I was because the lead horses weren’t stopping. Reneesgotzip wouldn’t give up.”

Quotes for the $1 million Filly & Mare Sprint


Rajiv Maragh (jockey, Groupie Doll, 1st) – “It set up just like last year. Good trip and when we got to the quarter pole, I was like ‘Whew, we’re passing horses.’ And I haven’t even asked her yet. She ran great.”

Quotes for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf


Ryan Moore (jockey, Dank, 1st) – “She had everything right today and I could ride her that way. I didn’t have to take too many chances because she was the best filly in the race. She wasn’t as brilliant today as in her last race (the Beverly D. at Arlington Park), but she still ran a very good race today.”

Quotes for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies


Javier Castellano (jockey, Ria Antonia, finished 2nd and placed 1st) – “I had gotten by Gary (Stevens) but when he came in to me, he bumped me off stride.”

Jeremiah Englehart (trainer, Ria Antonia, 2nd and placed 1st) –“Javier (jockey Castellano) says she got bumped right before she was going to go by. It’s right there; you can see it on the replay. After that, you have to take the horse down. If that horse changes course and doesn’t make contact, you say, ok, leave it up. But once you make contact it has to come down.”

Quotes for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Distaff


Richard Mandella (trainer, Beholder, 1st) – “We trained her this way (to run from off the pace.) We’ve just never had to use it before. She’s so naturally fast, you don’t have to train that into her and she’s made the lead so easily in many of her races. Today, she had to come from off of it and she did it – and boy do I love it. I’ve been lucky enough to have many good mares in my years of training, but this mare might have to be the best of all.”

Quotes for the $1 million Juvenile Fillies Turf


Richard Hughes (jockey, Chriselliam, 1st) – “She’s one of the best fillies I’ve ridden and she proved it today. She had no problem adapting to the firm turf and had a nice rhythm going down the backstretch. I won a Group I (Shadwell Fillies Mile) with her the first time I got on her at Newmarket. The trainer asked me to gallop her after that and I told him after the gallop, that if I hadn’t ridden her before, I would have never thought she would get a mile because she had so much speed. This is one of biggest wins of my career. It’s a pity my family couldn’t have been here.”

Quotes for the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile


Rafael Bejarano (jockey, Goldencents, 1st) – “I wasn’t worried at all (about the fast fractions) because I know how good this horse has trained. He broke so good from the gate, but the six horse (Broadway Empire) wanted to go the lead and put pressure on me. I made sure (my horse) got clear and then at the three-eighths pole, I knew what he would do.”

Quotes for the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf


Mike Smith (jockey, Outstrip, 1st) – “The trip was really good. I managed to get covered up, just make my way, and follow the right horses. I was following two of the greatest turf riders here in America, Gary Stevens and Corey Nakatani. They showed me a great way to go, and it really worked out for me.”
