Hopeful (G1) Quotes

Javier Castellano, winning jockey aboard Ralis (No.6): "He broke well out of the gate today. I thought he was going to be a little too far back. He broke sharp from the gate. He had a great post outside to take a bit of a nice hold and to see how the race developed in the first quarter. He had a great position outside. It was perfect. It was a perfect trip. I'm very blessed to ride that horse."

Bernard Baruch (G2) Quotes

Shug McGaughey, winning trainer of Ironicus (No. 1): "I thought we were laying a little bit closer; he was a little bit off the pace. Javier said he felt like he was sitting on the best horse and he said he wasn't going to go wide today and took a chance and hung out. I thought he rode another great race and a great horse. It was a little bit of a throw away because after the Fourstardave I didn't plan on running him here again, but he came out of his race good and he hasn't really been running that much, so I thought we might as well give him a chance. I'm very proud of the track record, any time you can do something like that it goes on the horse's record and you can get somebody to maybe take a look at it."

Prioress (G2) Quotes

Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Cavorting (No. 10): "Great trip. She broke so sharp and Irad rode her great. She loves it up here at Saratoga, as we all do, but she's 3-for-3 up here so this was great. She was sitting close from the start and there was enough speed up front so it worked out well. We'll train her up to the Breeders' Cup from here because she likes a little more space between races."

$300,000 Florida Sire Stakes Susan’s Girl Quotes

Trainer Stanley Gold (Ballet Diva): “I don’t think she was handling the track (last time out). She was sliding. She handled it today, but the stretch got longer. By the eighth-pole it looked like there was another mile to go. The other one (stablemate Silent Prayer) almost caught her. She put away the ones that were pushing her and had enough to hold off our other horse."

Woodward (G1) Quotes

Todd Pletcher, trainer of winner Liam's Map (No. 2) and runner-up Coach Inge (No. 6): "The Whitney was as tough a loss as you'll experience. He ran an unbelievable race that day and everything he indicated to us from that time until today was that he was ready to come back over and put forth another big effort. I'm just happy to see him get that Grade 1 that he deserves so much."

"The opening fractions were very much in his favor, and he has that style where he can get into a cruising speed and just keep carrying it. The thing that he did after he went that 47 and 1 is he came back with another 23 and change to go 1:10 and change and then 1:34 and change. He just gets into that rhythm and he just runs horses off their feet."
