Quotes from the $400,000 First Lady


John Velazquez (winning rider of Dayatthespa)

“She came out of there (starting gate) very well. (One of the owners) told me (trainer) Chad (Brown) said make sure to drop inside going into that first turn. He didn’t want to be three wide early. She broke really well and the other speed went to the front, so it worked well. I was just holding it together and when I let her go at the quarter pole, she was all fresh. She finished unbelievable – really, really good. She started to look around a little bit around the sixteenth pole, so I hit her one time to keep her mind running but she was doing really well.”

Quotes from the $200,000 Thoroughbred Club of America


Josie Carroll (winning trainer of Leigh Court)

On returning Leigh Court to a race on the dirt
“(Breeder and owner Eugene) Melnyk was hoping for a horse for the Breeders’ Cup. We sat down and talked about it, and we thought this was the best direction to take to get there. It worked out just fine.”

Quotes from the $150,000 Woodford


Wesley Ward (winning trainer of favored No Nay Never)

On whether grass is No Nay Never’s forte
“No, I think he can do both. This turf course here is just so kind and forgiving. He’s a big, blocky, extremely fast horse – I thought this would be a great spot to bring him back and springboard him back into what we’re going to do. We’re going to sit down and talk with (co-owners) Dave Reid, Frank Antonacci and the boys at Coolmore and see what direction they want to go. He’s equally as good on the dirt. I just wanted to bring him back into this, see how he comes back, and more likely than not (go to) the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1).”

Quotes from the $400,000 Darley Alcibiades


Olly Stevens (winning trainer of Peace and War)

“We purchased her at Keeneland (at the September Yearling Sale) then took her back to England. She won her first out then we caught some bad ground at Ascot in England, which is one of the main reasons we came over here.

“She’s been back 12 days. Julien (Leparoux) breezed her here on Sunday, the day I flew in, and he really liked her. He jumped off another filly to ride her, actually.”
