Quotes $350,000 In Reality Division Florida Sire Stakes


Trainer Stanley Gold (Sing Praises) – “I told you last time it wasn’t the distance. He just thought he had it. He (Ramsey Zimmerman) rode him smart today and had it when he needed it. I left Ramsey alone and said, ‘Ride it like you see it.’

“I couldn’t tell (who won it) Looking at the other one, his head was higher up and our’s was down. I couldn’t tell. I’m always doom and gloom in those situations, unless it’s obvious. I couldn’t tell.

Quotes $350,000 My Dear Girl Division Florida Sire Stakes


Trainer Jose Pinchin (Holywell): “She ran exactly the way I expected her to run, getting the lead from the one hole. Last time she won, she galloped out five or six lengths ahead of the field, so I knew she was going to get a mile.

“Last time, she fought seven furlongs straight. She didn’t get an easy lead. I knew she was going to get an easy lead this time.

Hill Prince (G3) Quotes


Terry Finley, president of West Point Thoroughbreds, co-owner of winner Ring Weekend (No. 1): "[Trainer] Graham Motion had called me [to discuss about running Ring Weekend over soft turf]. He's over at the Arc. He kind of threw it on me. I've been around the business. I threw it right back on him. We felt pretty comfortable."

Champagne (G1) Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Daredevil (No. 6): "I thought it was very impressive. He rated kindly and did everything you would hope one would do. He finished really well and I couldn't be more pleased. His training for us has been really impressive in the mornings. We'd never breezed him on an off track, so I was a little concerned running him the first time [on a muddy track September 13], but we felt pedigree-wise he would handle it, and he obviously does. He trains like a good horse on fast dirt, too."

Frizette (G1) Quotes


Michelle Nevin, winning trainer of By the Moon (No. 7): "She's always been extremely smart and very professional. In her first race she did everything she was expected to do as a racehorse. Even in her second race it wasn't the greatest trip; she had to go a little wide and maybe it was speed biased that day. She still tried to make her run. Today, she just took control."

Quotes from the $1 million Shadwell Turf Mile


Charlie LoPresti (winning trainer of Wise Dan)

“His head was turned sideways, and he missed the break a little bit but that’s what happened to him in the Breeders’ Cup (Mile, G1) last year. He stumbled. I was a little worried down the backside. Silver Max got a slow quarter (mile time) up front. I thought, ‘Man, somebody’s got to go.’ He’s just an incredible horse. He’s incredible. That’s all I can say. Thank God.”

Quotes from the $500,000 Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity


Elliott Walden (President/CEO and Racing Manager of WinStar Farm, which owns Carpe Diem with Stonestreet Stables)

“He ran great at Saratoga and then to come here in a Grade 1 like this and put it all together like that around two turns, it’s very exciting. This horse is a beautiful horse, he’s got a great pedigree and we hoping to make a stallion. I think we did that today.”

Quotes from the $400,000 First Lady


John Velazquez (winning rider of Dayatthespa)

“She came out of there (starting gate) very well. (One of the owners) told me (trainer) Chad (Brown) said make sure to drop inside going into that first turn. He didn’t want to be three wide early. She broke really well and the other speed went to the front, so it worked well. I was just holding it together and when I let her go at the quarter pole, she was all fresh. She finished unbelievable – really, really good. She started to look around a little bit around the sixteenth pole, so I hit her one time to keep her mind running but she was doing really well.”

Quotes from the $200,000 Thoroughbred Club of America


Josie Carroll (winning trainer of Leigh Court)

On returning Leigh Court to a race on the dirt
“(Breeder and owner Eugene) Melnyk was hoping for a horse for the Breeders’ Cup. We sat down and talked about it, and we thought this was the best direction to take to get there. It worked out just fine.”

Quotes from the $150,000 Woodford


Wesley Ward (winning trainer of favored No Nay Never)

On whether grass is No Nay Never’s forte
“No, I think he can do both. This turf course here is just so kind and forgiving. He’s a big, blocky, extremely fast horse – I thought this would be a great spot to bring him back and springboard him back into what we’re going to do. We’re going to sit down and talk with (co-owners) Dave Reid, Frank Antonacci and the boys at Coolmore and see what direction they want to go. He’s equally as good on the dirt. I just wanted to bring him back into this, see how he comes back, and more likely than not (go to) the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1).”
