$150,000 Hal’s Hope (G3) Quotes

Todd Pletcher (Trainer, Mshawish): “I have a lot of respect for Valid. I know him from running against Liam’s Map and Madefromlucky this year, he’s a tough horse to get by. I was a little concerned when he made the lead. You know when you go to fight with him he’s going to fight back. I think Javier (Castellano) knew that as well. That’s why he stayed out a little and not try to engage him, but still he dug in.

$200,000 Fort Lauderdale (G2) Quotes

Trainer Brian Lynch (Heart to Heart): “He’s tough when he makes the lead and gets to dictate the terms. I’ve always felt he’s a superior turn runner and he showed it again today going into that bottom turn there. They were all sort of scratching the leather to get to him and his little ears pricked and he opened up. He always has an opportunity to steal a few lengths as they straighten for home and I think that’s’ where he gets it.”

$100,000 Mucho Macho Man Quotes

Trainer Alan Goldberg, via phone (Awesome Speed): “It looked like he got hit one way and then got hit another [at the start]. He had a pretty clean trip after that, so I’ll talk to [assistannt trainer] Jorge [Duarte] and see if he got banged up.

“I bought him out of the sale and he ran terrible the first time; that was pretty much a big disappointment. He seems to have really gotten it together, but I’ve liked him all along.

$100,000 Hutcheson (G3) Quotes

Trainer Stanley Gold (Awesome Banner): “He got the chip the first time after we breezed him after he broke his maiden. He showed something was wrong, we x-rayed him and it was there. There was no question involved, it was ‘fix it.’ You just go on, you don’t think about those things. It would have been nice to have him for the Sire Stakes but we did pretty well in the Sire Stakes and now we have a fresh horse with a bright future.”
