New York Stallion Series Cupecoy’s Joy quotes


Linda Rice, winning trainer of Mark My Way (No. 1A): "I was happy with [his performance]. Cornelio [Velasquez] just told me that he slipped coming out of the gate, but I kind of expected that he'd be off the pace, coming from 1 1/8 miles to seven furlongs. That really worked out fine because my other two horses were pressing the pace, so I was happy to have somebody closing. I thought he ran really professional for a horse who has only had four starts."

Stephen Foster Handicap Quick Quotes


CALVIN BOREL, jockey of MOONSHINE MULLIN (winner) – “Randy (Morse) has been doing so well with him. The first morning I was out on him working him after the Alysheba, he didn’t really work like I thought he should have. But boy its funny, when a horse peaks, they peak. When I came back and worked him again about five days ago he was a totally different horse, like he had gotten his seat back under him. I rode him with a lot of confidence today. We were stepping up today, I know we beat some of these same horses a few weeks back and early on I was afraid it may have taken too much out of him, but as we got closer, Randy had him ready to go. He’s a nice, nice horse.”

Astoria Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Fashion Alert (No. 6): "I thought she did everything we hoped she would do. She got away pretty alertly and put herself in good position. It was an advantage to have the outside post, which we were happy about when the draw came out. She's a very talented filly that ran to her training. I think timing-wise, this sets her up very well for the [Grade 3] Schuylerville [July 18, 6 furlongs, Saratoga]."
