Empire Classic Handicap (NYB) quotes


Tom Albertrani, winning trainer of Empire Dreams (No. 8): "We always thought that the 1 1/8 miles might've been a little out of his realm, but he was so much the best today. It worked out perfectly. He came into the race doing really well, a little time off helped him as well. Manny [Franco] gave him a perfect ride, just nice and patient. There was a good pace in front of us and he just reeled them in. He's always run well at Belmont and we got what we needed today. We got the right pace. He loves this track, so it just worked out."

Riker/Plenty of Can-Con for Breeders’ Cup


TORONTO, October 21 – “We’re dreaming the dream.”

With his undefeated, ultra-impressive colt slated to take on the world nine days from now in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, it’s easy to understand why trainer Nick Gonzalez is dreaming big.

As he watched Riker in the final yards of the Grade 3 Grey Stakes at Woodbine earlier this month, Gonzalez marveled at the ease in which the dark bay went about his business in the 1 1/16-mile feature, while notching his fourth win in as many starts for owner Tucci Stables.
