$150,000 Ben Ali Stakes (G3) Quotes


Charlie LoPresti (winning trainer of Successful Dan)

“He has tremendous heart. He’s got a lot of talent, and his injuries here lately haven’t been very bad. At Saratoga, he had some filling in his pastern. Probably I could have run him, but you want them to be 100 percent with a horse of this caliber. It wasn’t that hard to get him back to this race. (Jockey) Julien (Leparoux) has breezed him these past two times, and he’s told me he was as good as ever. And Dr. Larry Bramlage checked him and gave him a clean bill of health.”

The plan was to go ahead and let her run away from there and finish up nicely. It seemed she controlled the race from the start, set some nice fractions, didn’t overdo it, got the job done. I’d have to think this will [set her up for the Acorn] (Grade 1, one mile, Belmont Park, May 27). That’s been the plan all along.”

Todd Pletcher (winning trainer of Winning Cause)

On whether he was expecting this type of performance
“To be honest, we weren’t sure. We were stretching him out and stepping up into a graded stakes off two weeks’ rest. The main reason (he was entered in the race) is he’s two for two at Keeneland going into this. We know he likes the surface and thought it was worth taking a shot.”
