Post Position Draw Quotes


Trainer Antonio Sano (Gunnevera, Post 11, 9-5): “No problem. If my horse had speed, it would be a problem, but horse will be in back, so no problem. From the outside post, [Jockey Javier] Castellano can make his way to the inside and then make his run.”

Trainer Jose Pinchin (Three Rules, Post 10, 8-1): “I would have preferred an inside draw, but it is what it is. You have no control over it. [Three Rules] is by far the fastest horse in the race, but you don’t want to burn [him] — you just want to break and get a good position. It’s up to the rider, totally, I’m not even giving [Luis Saez] instructions. He will have to do what he has to do.”

$100,000 Skip Away (G3) Quotes


Trainer Efren Loza Jr. (Fear the Cowboy): “We made the decision to come back to Gulfstream because the horse has run before here. He loves this track. We really liked the distance, one mile and an eighth. We decided to bring him back to Gulfstream because the owners are from Florida and I’m from Florida. This is my first graded race [victory].

“He runs every time and runs so hard. He runs one mile, one mile and a sixteenth, one mile and an eighth. He is a horse I ship to different racetracks and he always does good. He has heart.”
