Woodward (G1) Quotes


Eddie Plesa, Jr., winning trainer of Itsmyluckyday (No. 2): "It's like when you have a child that does something out of the ordinary, exceptional, that you know he could do; that's what it felt like. I mean, horses aren't your children, but we take great pride in our horses; we take great pride in our craft. He did what he needed to do in a manner nobody would dispute was spot on or that he was the best horse today."

Forego (G1) Quotes


Linda Rice, winning trainer of Palace (No. 6): "[Palace] is a really talented horse, and when he is good I need to use him because on several occasions I've needed to stop on him, turn him out, and give him a break. When a horse is doing as well as he is, I don't know how long I can keep him that good."
"He's such a special horse, and [owner Antonino] Miuccio has allowed me to stop on him, turn him out, and give him a break whenever he needs it, and it's obviously paid off."

Riskaverse Quotes


Tom Albertrani, winning trainer of Miss Frost (No. 2): "Her last two races she's made steps forward; it was a tremendous performance from her. We weren't planning on being on the front end, but it's just the way things worked out. She was just dragging Edgar along. Down the backside I thought maybe she was doing too much for her own good, but once they came to her she just re-broke again. Edgar had a ton of horse the whole way."

Moreno seeks second straight Grade 1 in 61st running of the Woodward


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - What a difference a race makes.

Southern Equine Stable's Moreno has long held a reputation as a fast and dangerous horse that fights hard all the way but gets caught at the end of the biggest graded stakes events. The 4-year-old Ghostzapper gelding changed that way of thinking in dramatic fashion August 2, winning the Grade 1, $1.5 million Whitney, the richest race of the Saratoga Race Course meet, in front-running fashion over some of the top horses in training.

P.G. Johnson Quotes


Chad Brown, winning trainer of Partisan Politics (No. 3): "We spoke about it in the paddock, Javier and I, and we really wanted the spot the No. 1 [Ancient Goddess] was in going into the first turn. Handicapping the race, I thought there were two speed horses, and I knew that European horses generally don't break well first time out, so I said, 'See if you can break and get right in the pocket.' That's the trip I wanted, and maybe wait for a hole turning for home. When the No. 1 got my spot and [Partisan Politics] was four wide, I was not happy. I'm really proud of this horse, for her to go wide the whole way and still power home and win convincingly. I wasn't positive she wanted to go a mile and a sixteenth quite yet; that's why I debuted her sprinting. I thought today we would have had to save a little more ground to win, but she didn't need it; she got a wide trip and still won."

Mike Hushion, winning trainer of Artemis Agrotera (No. 1): How was she training after finishing eighth in the Grade 1 TVG Acorn? "Just lightened up on her a little. She's a filly that apparently does better off of light training than five-eights [of a mile] in a minute every six days."
