Waya Quotes


H. Graham Motion, winning trainer of Qushchi (No. 1): "I think she had been a little unlucky. She was just nailed right on the wire at Churchill last time. She actually was interfered with by my other filly, Strathnaver, at Keeneland."

Shine Again Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Holiday Soiree (No. 5): "We got the pace setup that we figured. We sat a good trip and she really ran super. It's the first time we've run her; we've only had her a short period of time. She's trained really well since we had her; I'm very pleased with the way she did it. She's a straightforward, professional filly, a little aggressive to gallop. We worked her one time and she worked lights out, so we were just happy to find a nice spot for her."

John Velazquez, winning jockey aboard Holiday Soiree (No. 5): "We ended up having a perfect trip. I stalked those two horses on the lead. It was kind of easy, and then by the quarter pole I asked my horse to start running and she responded right away."

King Cyrus Maiden Win Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of King Cyrus (No. 6): "We felt like he had been training well. We originally put him in a six-furlong race on Saturday; we thought seven furlongs might be better for him. He's an obvious two-turn kind of horse - bred that way, looks that way, trains that way. We were happy with the way he came into the race but didn't really expect him to blow them away like that."

Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap (G1) Quotes


Steve Asmussen, winning trainer of Justin Phillip (No. 4): "Last year's Vanderbilt was a good opportunity for him, and I thought he was unfortunate not to win that day. For everything to work out, to have him in this position today - a good draw, a good set up - was very rewarding. I can't say enough about how much respect I have for Justin Phillip as a racehorse. He hasn't held any of the mistakes we made with him against us. We were trying to win the Derby with him when he was 3! He has a lot of talent, and you want to get that done. For him to travel as much as he has, run as fast as he has, and probably put up his best race today - 1:08 2/5 in a Grade 1, put him over a million dollars - it's very rewarding."

Whitney Invitational Handicap (G1) Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Cross Traffic (No. 4): "The plan was to let him run to the first turn. Being outside of Mucho Macho Man and Fort Larned - the other two speeds - we felt like we were in a good position. It worked out really well. We got a great run into the first turn. The first quarter was key - Johnny was able to get to the position he wanted without overdoing it, and kind of picked it up from there. It was a strongly run race throughout, and we were just hoping he could hold on the last part after the two losses we had at Belmont. Those were heart-breaking losses, to run as well as he did in those two races and miss by a whisker. Turning for home, I thought we had a big shot, but I was still wanting to get there."
