Peter Pan (G2) Quotes


Christophe Clement, winning trainer of Tonalist (No. 4): "Joel [Rosario] makes all the calls on track. Obviously, he broke a tad slow so he sent him and showed more speed than expected, but he was just galloping along easily. You could see he was striding very well. What impressed me was the last eighth of a mile, when he opened up again. I thought he was fit [coming off the layoff]. I was very worried about the wet track. I don't breeze my horses on the wet track so that was a complete question mark. He answered that pretty nicely. This win is nice, it's great; Mr. [Robert] Evans is very happy. Let's see how the horse comes out of it, but of course we have to think about the Belmont Stakes [Grade 1, $1.5 million, June 7]. We're New York people and we're at Belmont."
