Coronation Cup Quotes

Chris DeCarlo, winning jockey aboard Jewel of a Cat (No. 2): "She broke really sharp, and the two speed horses really ran away from me, so I knew we must've been flying. When we ran into the straight nobody really kicked on. I knew I had a shot because I still had a lot of horse underneath me."

Ben Perkins, Jr., winning trainer of Jewel of the Cat (No. 2): "When they went out there in 21 1/5 [seconds], Chris [DeCarlo] had her, then once he got her in gear, I thought she had a shot. She ran really well last year on the turf. When we ran her at Monmouth [in her last start], she dropped back and had a chance to get running. She wants to be clear, but she never got clear and just ran even. She came out of that race really well and she had two good breezes, so we decided to try this."

Saratoga Special (G2) Quotes

Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Corfu (No. 4): "I thought [Wired Bryan] certainly would have been one of the horses, if not the horse, to beat. [Wired Bryan] ran a courageous race; we were just on the fortunate side of the head bob."

Adirondack (G2) Quotes

Dallas Stewart, winning trainer of winner Designer Legs (No. 5): "She ran a great race. Very nice filly. She's going to get better. I give a lot of credit to [owner] Murray [Valene]. I had her early and he sent her to Minnesota because his father is up there. She ran up there and of course she ran in a stake in Iowa. Murray called me and said, 'Hey, we're going to get that filly back. She's the real deal.' A lot of credit goes to Murray and [former trainer] Gary Scherer. She was ready to run; I try just not to mess her up.

"She fought back and forth with that horse [Who's in Town] and it came up the right way."

Fourstardave Handicap (G2) Quotes

Charles LoPresti, winning trainer of Wise Dan (No. 1): "As I told some of you today, to prove that he's a great horse like everybody's talking about, he had to carry that weight. I think he proved that he's a very good horse. He was cruising up the rail. I was worried about that front-runner. When he cruised up to him on equal terms, he had so much horse he just went right on by him. Johnny [Velazquez] just kind of rode him out. The :24 and change worried me; you don't let a speed horse get out there like that. Johnny had so much confidence in him. They started to pick it up and ran fast the last part of it. I know that horse of ours has a great kick. And he proved he's a great horse today."

NYSS Statue of Liberty Quotes

Dominick Schettino, winning trainer of Frosty Bay (No. 7): "I'm very proud. She's a very versatile filly. She gives you everything every time she runs. I left it up to Javier [Castellano]. She can be near the lead or close from off the pace."

Javier Castellano, winning jockey aboard Frosty Bay (No. 7): "I had a great trip. The pace was great. It was slow, but I knew my horse was comfortable in behind horses. I didn't have a good break, but that didn't affect the result today. It was a good performance. I saw a couple horses near the lead struggling. Sooner or later I knew it would back up really quick. I just wanted to avoid any traffic, and that's the reason I kept her outside horses and let her finish quick."
