Pin Oak Valley View (G3) Quotes


Malcolm Pierce (winning trainer of Overheard)

On winning the race with a horse owned by the race’s sponsor, Josephine Abercrombie’s Pin Oak Stable LLC

“There was a lot of pressure today because she sponsors this race. We came down here (from Woodbine in Toronto) thinking we had a chance. It’s a lot of fun to win.

“I knew (Overheard would) run big. I didn’t know if she could win this race, but I knew she was ready to run a top race.”

Quotes from Sycamore (G3)


Danny Peitz (winning trainer of Najjaar)

“I didn’t really know what to expect (after the race was moved from turf to the main track because of rain earlier in the day). The only time he’d run on the Polytrack was in his (third start, in October 2011 at Keeneland). He was a fast-closing second that day. We thought he’d handle it. He’s trained all summer long on it.

$400,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (G1)


Mike Maker (winning trainer of Kitten’s Dumplings)

“Good ones are easy to (train). She’s a little tough to deal with. She needs more schooling in the winner’s circle. She looked a little nervous in there.”

On why jockey Julien Leparoux rode the filly onto the track early while the remainder of the field stayed in the paddock and walking ring

“With the crowd today at Keeneland (32,717, a record attendance for the fall meet), we thought we’d get her out of there and play it a little safe.”

$100,000 Buffalo Trace Franklin County (L)


Eduardo Caramori (winning trainer of Queen’s Award)

“We knew she was running at the end, but we didn’t know if she’d be in time to catch (the leader). We got lucky today.”

On whether he was concerned when she was far back early in the race

“No. That was the plan. Kent (Desormeaux) knew the filly; he rode her in Chicago (in which she was second in the Grade 3 Chicago Handicap on June 29). He rode her with confidence. We needed a Hall of Fame rider to do a Hall of Fame ride, and he did it today. We got it today because of Kent.”
