$400,000 First Lady (G1)


Jimmy Bell (president of Darley, representing winning owner Godolphin Racing LLC, lessee)

“Today she was ‘Better Lucky.’ Last couple of times she’s been a little unlucky, took wide trips and ran great races. We’ve been looking at this race for quite a while. Julien (Leparoux) gave her a great ride and (trainer) Tommy (Albertrani) had her to the minute tuned up. We were Better Lucky today and got it done.”

$400,000 Darley Alcibiades (G1)


Mark Casse (winning trainer of My Conquestadory)

On whether he was worried when she had to check on the backstretch

“A little worried? My thoughts were, ‘Here we have this great filly and she’s not going to be able to show how great she was.’ I wasn’t upset or worried for me, I was worried for her, because I wanted her to be able to show you how great she was. That was my concern.”

$200,000 Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix (G3)


Tom Amoss (winning trainer of Sum of the Parts)

“I made a grave error with him last spring: I brought him back too quick and tried to do too much with him before I ran him, and it cost me. That’s how training goes. When you make those kinds of mistakes, you’re going to have to sit and wait, which is what we did and he came back really good this spring. I told the group I was with, ‘This the most athletic horse I’ve trained. He’s the quickest horse I’ve ever trained out of the gate.’ He really showed that today. All the credit goes to the horse.”

$150,000 Elkhorn Stakes (G2) Quotes


Ken Ramsey (owner of winner Dark Cove)

“I can’t believe we’ve doubled the old record of 12 wins (in a single Keeneland meet). To win 24 is unbelievable. The low point about today is my wife (Sarah) had to be taken to the hospital yesterday. She’s not doing that well but nothing life-threatening. That’s the only sad part, that she’s not able to be here with me. But this is almost like heaven.”

$150,000 Bewitch Stakes (G3) Quotes


Graham Motion (trainer of winner Strathnaver [GB])

“I thought she was very impressive that day at Gulfstream (winning an allowance race on March 16 in her first U.S. start). Like I said to Joel, I just wasn’t sure about the mile and a half. But clearly she handled it pretty good.”
