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. That’s why he stayed out a little and not try to engage him, but still he dug in.

$200,000 Fort Lauderdale (G2) Quotes


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. They were all sort of scratching the leather to get to him and his little ears pricked and he opened up. He always has an opportunity to steal a few lengths as they straighten for home and I think that’s’ where he gets it.”

There was no question involved, it was ‘fix it.’ You just go on, you don’t think about those things. It would have been nice to have him for the Sire Stakes but we did pretty well in the Sire Stakes and now we have a fresh horse with a bright future.”
