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


Mike Stidham (winning trainer of Her Emmynency)

“She had two really tough defeats in Grade 1s previously (second to Sunset Glow in the 2014 Del Mar Debutante and second to Sharla Rae in the Del Mar Oaks in her last race), so this was well deserved for her. (Jockey) Florent (Geroux) did a great job.”

On whether she is improving
“I really think so. From two to three, she’s come a long way in maturity. She’s a very nice filly.”

Statement by Keeneland Regarding Uniform Medication Policies


Statement by Keeneland Regarding Uniform Medication Policies

In a year that our industry and all of our participants are enjoying incredible excitement in racing, medication issues continue to dominate discussions. It is evident that a collective resolution to medication issues is essential for racing to continue the momentum we are experiencing in this historic year.

With the lack of action among many state jurisdictions with regard to uniform medication policies, it is apparent that federal legislation is necessary to provide our industry with a level playing field across all borders as well as adequate testing measures to ensure the integrity of our sport. That is why Keeneland is proud to publicly support HR 3084 and become a member of the Coalition for Horse Racing Integrity.

Quotes from the $150,000 JPMorgan Chase Jessamine


Bill Mott (winning trainer of Harmonize)

On whether Harmonize is good enough to advance to the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf
“I think so. It’s nice to see that she’s versatile enough to come from back in the pack like she did. She struggled with ground early and once she got down the backside, she got a little better, a little better. When (jockey Junior Alvarado) turned for home, she turned on the after-burners and was good enough to run them down.

Quotes from the $1 Million Shadwell Turf Mile (G1)


Brian Lynch (winning trainer of Grand Arch)

“Great to see him, as he gets older, just keep getting better and better. We had this race in mind this year after a game effort last year (second by a length to Wise Dan), and (jockey) Luis (Saez) seems to get along with him fantastic. I was worried about the turf getting a little soft today, but he handled it well. Very exciting finish – makes for a great race.”
