Quotes from the $150,000 Lexington (G3)


Peter Fluor (partner in Speedway Stables, winning owner of Collected)

“I was very impressed with (the effort). (Trainer) Bob (Baffert) did a very good job getting him ready. Lot of good horses in the race.”

On whether the Preakness (G1) might be an option for the colt
“I think that would be the most logical step, given the distance. We’ll see how he comes out (of this race), but that would be a thrill for us.”

Quotes for the $350,000 Coolmore Jenny Wiley (G1)


Mark Casse (winning trainer of Tepin)

On whether he feels pressure since everyone expects Tepin to perform so well
“A touch. But I have to say something. (Owner) Mr. (Robert) Masterson – if it wasn’t for him – everybody wouldn’t get to see the great Tepin. He wanted to let her run another year (rather than being retired). It puts a little pressure on us. I love it.

“But I just don’t want to let her down. It’s hard.”

Quotes for the $1 Million Toyota Blue Grass


Dale Romans (winning trainer of Brody’s Cause and third-place finisher Cherry Wine)

“(Brody’s Cause) started off his three-year-old season really slow. To run so bad in the Tampa Bay Derby, when I thought we were leading over a winner, it was discouraging. But if you look at his first race, he ran terrible that day, and I had thought he would win. I think he’s just a horse that needed a race.

“We’re going into the Kentucky Derby (G1) in perfect form. He’s already won on the track, which you know is important at Churchill Downs, and the farther the better.”

On his other trainee Cherry Wine, who ran third
“He ran a huge race, too. We’ll take him too and take a one-two punch in the Kentucky Derby.”

Quotes for the $500,000 Central Bank Ashland


Rusty Arnold (winning trainer of Weep No More)

“I thought she’d be that far back, and I told her (my wife, Sarah) about the half-mile pole, ‘I think she can get up for third from here.’ She just kept going, and they backed up a little bit. It was nice for the (owner) Bromagens, and we’ve been pointing for this race for two months.”

On her keys to big improvement
“Two turns, and she just came around. Each race she’s been better and better. Did we expect this? Not quite, but she’s a step ahead of us.

“We’ve got the mile and eighth in the (Kentucky) Oaks (G1) coming up. Jack Bohannan did all the work with her. She was under quarantine at Payson, and he trained her two months. Great job.”
