$100,000 Dania Beach (G3) Quotes
Trainer Shug McGaughey (Mr Speaker): "He ran good. He’d been training good. His first two races were better than they looked. When I ran him at Saratoga, Javier rode him and missed the hole, but came back and told me that he liked him a lot. A bug boy rode him after that, probably moved a little bit early on him against Request; he might have been best that day. We were what, 10-1 today and Request was 2-1? Then he came back and broke his maiden—everyone took back and he just found himself on the lead.

$100,000 South Beach Quotes
Trainer Mark Hennig (Baffle Me): "I have to give Javier (Castellano) credit, he’s gotten her to relax well. A year ago at this time you could have never dreamed that this filly would sit off of a 48-and-change half mile and, like he said, ‘I almost rated her too much today.’ She was like ‘when can we go, when can we go?’ But that was perfect. It was closer than we wanted it to be, but I think she had something left if they had gotten to her.
