With Anticipation (G2) Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Bashart (No. 1): "Javier kind of let him run away from there, and he made the lead and relaxed. The turf course has been playing that way like the past seven to 10 days, so it was a good spot to be. He responded every time they came to him. He found a little more."

Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords Stakes Quotes


Janet Elliot, winning trainer of The Grey Express (No. 5): "We bought her last year, actually, specifically to run in Saratoga. [When she was turned out] the other mare kicked this mare in the shoulder and gave her two chips, so that was her out for the rest of the year. .So, this has really been her first year. In a way it's helped, because she's had a year to acclimatize. She's game; she really tries. When she's on, it looks like she digs in and does her best. She did a nice job. She's a good girl."

Ross Geraghty, winning jockey aboard The Grey Express (No. 5): "She's very good. She's not flamboyant. She's just very efficient. She gets in tight and pops away. I didn't ask for anything from her, apart for the last two. When you do [ask] she gives you everything."

Travers (G1) Flash Quotes


Luis Saez, winning jockey aboard Will Take Charge (No. 5): "I want to say thanks to God, [Mr. ] Lukas and everyone who's coming here to see these champions. This horse was training good. Last time, when he finished second, I saw the replays and I knew how to ride him. I tried to ride him like he runs."

Travers (G1) Quotes


Eric Guillot, trainer of runner-up Moreno (No. 6): "Brutal, huh? Last jump. He couldn't have done any better - stay in the three-path, stay off the rail, make them come to you, don't let them go inside you, don't let them pinch you on the rail. The kid [Jose Ortiz] rode him just like I told him. He knows the horse and he rode him perfect; we got beat. He said the horse kind of waited on them that last part. What are you going to do?"

Foxwoods King’s Bishop (G1) Quotes


Todd Pletcher, trainer of winner Capo Bastone (No. 3): "He's shown, on his good days, that he's good enough to compete in a race like this. He was pretty close to Forty Tales in the Derby Trial, and it seemed like he was training better than ever. Based off his breeze with Verrazano [on Sunday], we felt like it was time to take a shot. It seemed like everything was gelling at the right time, and he was sitting on a good one, so we felt like, 'Let's try a big one.' It seems like he has found his niche. I think he gets a mile, no problem, but this was a good set-up for him today."

Ketel One Ballston Spa (G2) Quotes


Alan Goldberg, winning trainer of Laughing (No. 1) [by telephone]: "It was a great race. She ran well, and hopefully she'll come back well. She's a trier. She's real healthy now and I think she'll be a pretty good force in the filly and mare division. She's pretty tough. I actually thought she would [do it]. The other filly hung in there pretty good. Looking at her form, it looked like [Pianist] wanted to have the lead. She'd run her best races on the lead. It was a good horse race; it turned out really well."

Test (G1) Quotes


Jerry Hollendorfer, winning trainer of Sweet Lulu (No. 5): "I was a little concerned when she got headed, and then Julien [Leparoux] rode hard and she came back, fought back and won. She's done everything we've asked her to do. I didn't know if I should ship her this soon and come back here and try this, but she was doing so well and showing speed, and this is a Grade 1 and a very important race for pedigree, so we decided to try it."

Ballerina (G1) Quotes


Ollie Figgins, III, winning trainer of Dance to Bristol (No. 1): "Her will to win is what makes her special. Book Review had dead aim on her inside the eighth pole. Once she saw her coming, she just wouldn't let her by. She broke nice and clean and [jockey Xavier Perez] just let her get her rhythm. She eased to the outside a little past the half-mile pole, it looked like, and everything went pretty smooth. We knew we had a good horse, and we were hopeful [we could come to Saratoga and win two graded stakes races]."
