Quotes from Connections of Entrants
Jim Cassidy (trainer of Ocho Ocho Ocho, post 1; 6-1 in the morning line)

“The rail is fine. I’d rather be inside than outside in any event. He broke a little slow last time, but he won’t this time.”

Tracey Wilkes (wife of trainer Ian Wilkes, trainer of Gorgeous Bird, post 2; 8-1 in the morning line)

“I had just one instruction for today and that was not to draw the 1 hole, so we are good with both (Wilkes also trains Central Bank Ashland [G1] starter Silverpocketsfull, who drew post 5). (Jockey) Brian (Hernandez Jr.) knows them both and will get them to settle out of the gate.”

Hagyard Fayette (G2) Quotes


Corey Lanerie (winning rider of Pick of the Litter)

“I had a great trip. My horse broke really good. My plan was to try to get behind Departing; I thought he was the horse to beat and to try not to let him get out of my sights. I wanted to stay kinda close to him and see what I had turning for home, see if I had enough to go by him or not.”

Keeneland Statement Regarding Kentucky Race Dates:


Keeneland understands and appreciates the conflicting interests and priorities that have resulted in the recommended schedule of racing dates for the late summer and early fall of 2015. While we accept the decision of the Race Dates Committee for the coming year, the Commission needs to know that we will vigorously oppose any effort to make that schedule a template for future years.

Quotes from the $500,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup


Bill Mott (winning trainer of Crown Queen)

“We ran her a couple of times as a 2-year-old, and (owner) Mr. (Ben) Leon wanted to give her some time over the winter to mature and grow up a little bit. It’s worked out perfectly. He made a good call, and she’s undefeated this season and now she’s a Grade 1 stakes winner. It was a very special win for me since I trained her mother (Delta Princess) and her grandmother (Lyphard’s Delta) and a lot of the family (including her multiple champion half-sister, Royal Delta). It’s a very meaningful win for me.”

Quotes from the $150,000 JPMorgan Chase Jessamine (G3)


Dr. Stephen Jackson (director of Three Chimneys Farm, winning owner of Rainha Da Bateria)

“I hope we’re going (to the Breeders’ Cup); we plan to, anyway. She ran huge and (trainer) Graham (Motion) had her teed up and ready to go. We always thought she was a nice filly, so hopefully we’ll be in California in about three weeks (for the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf).”

Quotes from the $250,000 Dixiana Bourbon


Ken McPeek (winning trainer of Lawn Ranger)

“I felt like he needed to go to another level. His race at Kentucky Downs (a 3¾-length maiden victory Sept. 13) was a pleasant surprise. He seems like a horse that’s maturing, and I think he’s gonna be even better as a 3-year-old. Our fingers are crossed that will happen.

Quotes from the $1 million Shadwell Turf Mile


Charlie LoPresti (winning trainer of Wise Dan)

“His head was turned sideways, and he missed the break a little bit but that’s what happened to him in the Breeders’ Cup (Mile, G1) last year. He stumbled. I was a little worried down the backside. Silver Max got a slow quarter (mile time) up front. I thought, ‘Man, somebody’s got to go.’ He’s just an incredible horse. He’s incredible. That’s all I can say. Thank God.”

Quotes from the $500,000 Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity


Elliott Walden (President/CEO and Racing Manager of WinStar Farm, which owns Carpe Diem with Stonestreet Stables)

“He ran great at Saratoga and then to come here in a Grade 1 like this and put it all together like that around two turns, it’s very exciting. This horse is a beautiful horse, he’s got a great pedigree and we hoping to make a stallion. I think we did that today.”
