Quotes from Sycamore (G3)


Danny Peitz (winning trainer of Najjaar)

“I didn’t really know what to expect (after the race was moved from turf to the main track because of rain earlier in the day). The only time he’d run on the Polytrack was in his (third start, in October 2011 at Keeneland). He was a fast-closing second that day. We thought he’d handle it. He’s trained all summer long on it.

Pebbles Quotes


Christophe Clement, winning trainer of Discreet Marq (No. 8): "She's a very nice filly who belongs to great people. I'm delighted for them. I've always thought she was a top-class miler. We've been stretching her all year long but she's good, and she overcame me, which is wonderful. Irad [Ortiz] rode her great. He's a very good, talented young jockey."

Irad Ortiz, Jr., winning jockey aboard Discreet Marq (No. 8): "I raised my hands a little bit because she [fought] a little with the mouth [at first]. She relaxed very good for me today. I got a lot of filly, I got a lot of horse, so I went little by little [after No. 6]. I asked her a little bit, and she gave me what she had."

SPEAKEASY STAKES QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

MARTIN GARCIA, CAN THE MAN, WINNER: “They took the blinkers off today, which I think helped. I think it will be good for him to run without them. He took the lead today and was just waiting, waiting, waiting and was just playing with them. He felt that horse on the inside coming (Agapito Delgadillo on Hi Fashioned) and once they got close he took off again. He was just playing out there today.”

$400,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (G1)


Mike Maker (winning trainer of Kitten’s Dumplings)

“Good ones are easy to (train). She’s a little tough to deal with. She needs more schooling in the winner’s circle. She looked a little nervous in there.”

On why jockey Julien Leparoux rode the filly onto the track early while the remainder of the field stayed in the paddock and walking ring

“With the crowd today at Keeneland (32,717, a record attendance for the fall meet), we thought we’d get her out of there and play it a little safe.”

$100,000 Buffalo Trace Franklin County (L)


Eduardo Caramori (winning trainer of Queen’s Award)

“We knew she was running at the end, but we didn’t know if she’d be in time to catch (the leader). We got lucky today.”

On whether he was concerned when she was far back early in the race

“No. That was the plan. Kent (Desormeaux) knew the filly; he rode her in Chicago (in which she was second in the Grade 3 Chicago Handicap on June 29). He rode her with confidence. We needed a Hall of Fame rider to do a Hall of Fame ride, and he did it today. We got it today because of Kent.”

Athenia (G3) Quotes


Cherie DeVaux, assistant to winning trainer Chad Brown of Pianist (No. 5) and third-place finisher and beaten favorite Samitar (No. 3): "This year, Pianist has been outstanding for us. I think she ran similarly to last time [second in the Grade 2 Ketel One Ballston Spa]. Jose [Ortiz] watched the replay of that race, and watched her sit off Laughing and she hung in there. He did the same thing today, and it worked out."
