Quotes from the $500,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup


Mike Stidham (winning trainer of Her Emmynency)

“She had two really tough defeats in Grade 1s previously (second to Sunset Glow in the 2014 Del Mar Debutante and second to Sharla Rae in the Del Mar Oaks in her last race), so this was well deserved for her. (Jockey) Florent (Geroux) did a great job.”

On whether she is improving
“I really think so. From two to three, she’s come a long way in maturity. She’s a very nice filly.”

Knickerbocker (G3) Quotes


John Velazquez, winning rider aboard Messi (No. 2): "When he ran for the first time at Belmont he was last at the quarter pole and he came running. Going a little shorter today I was a little worried about it, but they were going so slow and he was pulling all the way to the half-mile pole. I got stopped at the half-mile pole and I thought it would be hard not to let him go and catch up. Once he got going - at the quarter-mile pole - it took him a little bit to get going, but once he switched [leads] down the lane I thought he was going to get there. It was little by little, but he had a nice kick coming home."

Devine Aida looks for turnaround in Pebbles


ELMONT, N.Y. -Stronach Stables' Devine Aida looks to return to the winner's circle on Monday in the Columbus Day feature at Belmont Park, the $200,000 Pebbles for 3-year old fillies on the turf.

Making her first start for trainer Christophe Clement and coming off a five-month layoff, Devine Aida gets some class relief and returns to the turf after a fourth-place effort in the Grade 2 Gulfstream Park Oaks in March followed by a last-place finish in the Grade 2 Black-Eyed Susan on May 15, her last outing under trainer Ramon Morales. Prior to that, Devine Aida was undefeated in two starts on the turf in Florida during the winter, including the Ginger Brew at Gulfstream, winning by a combined 10 lengths.
