$100,000 Housebuster Quotes


Trainer Larry Bates (Black Diamond Cat): "He prepped really well for this. He went in 47 (seconds for a half-mile) for this. The weather really helped him and the way the race set up. (An off track) has helped him in the past. He nickers when it rains. He’s such an honest horse. That’s a lovely field that was behind him. He’s a little underrated, but we think a lot of him. We’ve had some problems that we’ve ironed out over time. I’d like to say he’s like a good whiskey – he improves with age. It’s great that he’s getting a little recognition. A horse like him keeps you going.”

Jockey Jilver Chamafi (Black Diamond Cat): "Everything went perfect. He broke good and everything was fine. The only thing the trainer told me was don't fight him too much."

Jockey Edgard Zayas (Swagger Jack): "We had a perfect trip, he just came up empty in the end."

Sportech Caress Quotes


Dale Romans, winning trainer of Silverette (No. 8): "Her two breezes on the turf were phenomenal. The early fractions were fast but she was doing it really relaxed. That's phenomenally fast. We have three horses for [owner] Paul Pompa, but this is the star of the barn. [Jockey Robby Albarado] has worked her the last two times and it worked out. It was nice to see her have that target in front of her. We'll see if she keeps moving forward."

Robby Albarado, winning jockey aboard Silverette (No. 8): "If you've watched me ride long enough you know my body movement, I was still as I could be. She was doing it very within herself. She's very deceptive; it doesn't look like she's doing it that fast, but she's moving. I worked her on the Oklahoma grass course, and she went really fast. I thought I went 49 or 50 [seconds] and she went 47. She does it real easy. She had a nice future on the dirt, but hopefully she continues to excel on the grass."

John’s Call Quotes


Chad Brown, winning trainer of Hyper (No. 2): "We took a shot. It's a very odd race; a mile and five-eighths. There aren't many of them over here. This was uncharted territory for him. It seems he was finishing his races well. He trains like a horse who has some stamina. More importantly, he likes firm ground. When we had an opportunity to run on a firm turf course today, you take what you can get. In a race this far, for him to come home that well, that's pretty good. I'm sure there is a graded stakes race with his name on it. It seems he's gotten better as he's gotten older."

Javier Castellano, winning rider aboard Hyper (No. 2): "It was a great trip that I had. Perfect trip, dream trip. I stalked on the inside. We had three turns. The first two turns I saved a lot of ground, and that's exactly what Chad Brown told me to do. He said, 'The first two turns stay on the rail and the last turn you decide, use your own judgment.' That's exactly what I did. It worked out perfect; beautiful trip."

Whitney Invitational Handicap (G1) Draw Quotes


Ian Wilkes, trainer of defending Whitney champion Fort Larned (No. 3, 7-5 morning-line odds): “That’s why I’ve got [jockey] Brian [Hernandez, Jr.]. He’s tactical; he can sit behind. Don’t forget Mucho Macho Man is a fast horse, as well. All three speed horses drew on the inside here. It’ll be up to Brian. He can sit; that’s not a problem.
