Quotes for the $5 Million Breeders’ Cup Classic


Martin Garcia (jockey, Bayern, 1st) – “It’s an amazing feeling, a dream come true. To compete in these races, especially this day, is a big thing for everyone. In this situation, you don’t take away when a horse likes to run on the lead. We let him run, and if anything happens, you make adjustments. In this race, he broke really good and I took advantage.”

On the inquiry: “I was pretty sure that I didn’t do anything. In racing, these things happen.”

Quotes for the Breeders’ Cup Mile


Stephane Pasquier (jockey, Karakonite, 1st) – “Emotionally, this is the biggest win of my career, to win a Breeders’ Cup race here in America. The trainer didn’t give me any instructions. I just rode him like the quality horse he is. A mile is his distance.” I had a bad draw on the outside but got a good position. It is easier when you are on the best horse in the race and he gave me everything and quickened very well.

Breeders’ Cup Sprint quotes


Florent Geroux (jockey, Work All Week, 1st) – “It feels great. It is a dream come true. To compete in these races and win on the first try is unbelievable. Especially with a horse from home: Illinois-bred and for Roger Breuggemann. A great trainer nobody knows because he flies under the radar and improves horses a lot. Work All Week has always been so good. Today was the real test to see if he can go with the best sprinters in the country, and he just did it. It's funny because when he made the lead he really put the breaks on, and I had to say ‘No, don't stop!’ and get him going again and he gave me more.”

Breeders’ Cup Turf Quotes


John Velazquez (jockey, Main Sequence, 1st) – “(Regular rider) Rajiv (Maragh, who is injured) told me all about the horse and how to ride him. He told me everything good about the horse and he (Main Sequence) did exactly what he said. It was the perfect trip.”

Graham Motion (trainer, Main Sequence, 1st) – “This is a very emotional day. A year ago on this day, I was in hospital with Johnny (Velazquez) and he was in really serious condition. It’s a powerfully emotional day.

Quotes for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile


Kent Desormeaux (jockey, Texas Red, 1st) – “I hadn’t even asked him yet and the others started coming back to me at the quarter-pole, so that made it real easy. You know, we were real poor when I was growing up but we always had horses. I don’t know how my family ever fed them, but my education in horses came all together today with this win.”

Quotes for Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint


Joel Rosario (jockey, Bobby’s Kitten, 1st) – “I was kind of worried with my position in the beginning. There was a lot of speed in the race, but I thought I could have been closer.

Quotes for the Filly & Mare Sprint


Mike Smith (jockey, Judy the Beauty, 1st) – “Absolutely dynamite. I couldn't have asked for a better trip. Almost every step of it, except for almost getting caught. She broke extremely well which at times can be very crucial for her because sometimes she gets away really bad. I was happy about that; one of the best she's ever left the gate. We saw that work at Keeneland. We knew she was ready.”

Quotes for the Filly & Mare Turf


Javier Castellano (jockey, Dayatthespa, 1st) – “I thought she could get the distance if we could get away with a slow pace. I was hoping we could go 24, 48, 1:13, and that’s exactly what we did. When we got the three-quarters in 1:13 I thought to myself, ‘We’re going to steal this thing,’ and we did.”

Chad Brown (trainer, Dayatthespa, 1st and Stephanie’s Kitten, 2nd) – “(Jockey) Javier (Castellano) did an awesome job. He was able to set an easy pace. We knew that if she got a little tired (on the lead), Stephanie’s Kitten would be coming, so we had it covered either way. I just wish there could be two winners. Both mares ran terrific.”
