Matriarch GI Quotes


Jockey Quotes

MARTIN GARCIA, EGG DROP, Winner: "The race set up as we planned. I let her break cleanly and she was running very comfortably and when I asked her to go she responded. (Discreet Marq) went by me very easily at the top of the stretch, but my filly never gave up and came back. That was a very tough race and she was able to get the job done.’’

Hollywood Derby GI Quotes


Jockey Quotes

COREY NAKATANI, SEEK AGAIN, Winner: "I was extremely confident. Any time you see the Juddmonte colors and a horse shipping from England, you know they’re going to have a big turn of foot and it’s just a matter if they can handle the tighter turns. He seemed to handle it. (Gosden) said he had trained him on the left handed tracks before shipping him here. I was very excited to get the opportunity to get to ride again for Juddmonte and try to win a Grade I for them. My main thing was to try to get him into a rhythm, get him to break decently and get him in a rhythm. (Gosden) told me he had missed the break a couple of times and left himself with way too much to do. My main concern was to try to have a spot to run at and not get him stopped.’’

$100,000 PULPIT QUOTES


Trainer Chad Brown (Storming Inti, by phone from Aquduct): "The horse ran great. He’s better on the turf, but it all worked out. I was a little surprised to see him on the lead like that, but it was probably better to keep the slop out of his face.”

Remsen (G2) Quotes


Shug McGaughey, winning trainer of Honor Code (No. 4): "We just said we were going to let him run his race. When [front-runner Master Lightning] went that slow, we went on and engaged him. He got down on the inside of that horse [Cairo Prince in the stretch] and he got by him. He showed a lot of guts. I'm proud of him. I think the horse in second is a nice horse, and it was a peculiar race. We'll give him a little time and take him to Payson [Park Thoroughbred Training Center in Florida]. He's going to run that far [Triple Crown distances], we just have to figure out how he wants to do it."

Cigar Mile Handicap (G1) Quotes


Bill Mott, winning trainer of Flat Out (No. 9): "This horse, I can't say enough about him. He's just been a real tough, durable horse, a horse that I've always felt may be as good at a flat mile as he is at 10 furlongs. Although he has won the Jockey Club Gold Cup twice at 10 furlongs, [he's] versatile enough to get up and get the job done at a mile."

Comely (G3) Quotes


Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Wedding Toast (No. 2): "She sometimes doesn't break so well, but today she broke well and [Javier Castellano] put her on the lead. She was very game. It looked like the other filly was going to go right by her, but she dug in and showed a lot of gameness. We won a tough photo. She's a very nice filly. We'll discuss plans for her."

Demoiselle (G2) Quotes


Todd Pletcher, trainer of winner Stopchargingmaria (No. 6) and runner-up Got Lucky (No. 1):"I was pleased with both of their races. Big effort by Got Lucky in her second start. The thing I thought [Stopchargingmaria] had going for her is a good foundation and the fact that she has a good mind. She's very ratable. She's kind. She's not the kind you have to worry about getting too headstrong, but it's a mile and an eighth, and it's a long way for 2-year-old fillies."

Miesque Stakes Quotes


Jockey Quotes

VICTOR ESPINOZA, FULL RANSOM, Winner: "I didn't really have any plan going into the race, just leave her alone and make her happy. It just depended how she broke out of the gate. I took my time, swung her to the outside and it worked out well today."

Generous Stakes Quotes


Jockey Quotes


JOE TALAMO, GLOBAL VIEW, Winner: "Before he left for Hong Kong, Gary Stevens (aboard for maiden win Oct. 27) told me a lot about this horse. He said this horse is very classy and pretty push-button. He sure was today. We had a great trip. I just took him to the outside and he did the rest."
