Riskaverse Quotes


Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Midnight Watch (No. 6): "I told him [jockey Irad Ortiz Jr.] not to rush her too much, just ease into it, and we got a nice :23 4/5 first quarter. He did a great job riding her. She is difficult and wants to go fast. We're just happy to get this stakes win behind her. It has been a great meet. Horses are running well. A lot of them were second early in the meet and came back to win. We've had a great meet."

Irad Ortiz, Jr., winning jockey aboard Midnight Watch (No. 6): "That was easy: break, and she has speed. I tried to get her relaxed as much as I could. She was pretty good all the way and when I asked, she picked it up. That's all I did. I thought it would be tough for them to run me down because I was going easy. She was always going :46, :47 and she was still running."

With Anticipation (G2) Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Bashart (No. 1): "Javier kind of let him run away from there, and he made the lead and relaxed. The turf course has been playing that way like the past seven to 10 days, so it was a good spot to be. He responded every time they came to him. He found a little more."

Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords Stakes Quotes


Janet Elliot, winning trainer of The Grey Express (No. 5): "We bought her last year, actually, specifically to run in Saratoga. [When she was turned out] the other mare kicked this mare in the shoulder and gave her two chips, so that was her out for the rest of the year. .So, this has really been her first year. In a way it's helped, because she's had a year to acclimatize. She's game; she really tries. When she's on, it looks like she digs in and does her best. She did a nice job. She's a good girl."

Ross Geraghty, winning jockey aboard The Grey Express (No. 5): "She's very good. She's not flamboyant. She's just very efficient. She gets in tight and pops away. I didn't ask for anything from her, apart for the last two. When you do [ask] she gives you everything."

Travers (G1) Flash Quotes


Luis Saez, winning jockey aboard Will Take Charge (No. 5): "I want to say thanks to God, [Mr. ] Lukas and everyone who's coming here to see these champions. This horse was training good. Last time, when he finished second, I saw the replays and I knew how to ride him. I tried to ride him like he runs."

Travers (G1) Quotes


Eric Guillot, trainer of runner-up Moreno (No. 6): "Brutal, huh? Last jump. He couldn't have done any better - stay in the three-path, stay off the rail, make them come to you, don't let them go inside you, don't let them pinch you on the rail. The kid [Jose Ortiz] rode him just like I told him. He knows the horse and he rode him perfect; we got beat. He said the horse kind of waited on them that last part. What are you going to do?"

Foxwoods King’s Bishop (G1) Quotes


Todd Pletcher, trainer of winner Capo Bastone (No. 3): "He's shown, on his good days, that he's good enough to compete in a race like this. He was pretty close to Forty Tales in the Derby Trial, and it seemed like he was training better than ever. Based off his breeze with Verrazano [on Sunday], we felt like it was time to take a shot. It seemed like everything was gelling at the right time, and he was sitting on a good one, so we felt like, 'Let's try a big one.' It seems like he has found his niche. I think he gets a mile, no problem, but this was a good set-up for him today."

Ketel One Ballston Spa (G2) Quotes


Alan Goldberg, winning trainer of Laughing (No. 1) [by telephone]: "It was a great race. She ran well, and hopefully she'll come back well. She's a trier. She's real healthy now and I think she'll be a pretty good force in the filly and mare division. She's pretty tough. I actually thought she would [do it]. The other filly hung in there pretty good. Looking at her form, it looked like [Pianist] wanted to have the lead. She'd run her best races on the lead. It was a good horse race; it turned out really well."
