Quotes for the $1 Million Toyota Blue Grass

Dale Romans (winning trainer of Brody’s Cause and third-place finisher Cherry Wine)

“(Brody’s Cause) started off his three-year-old season really slow. To run so bad in the Tampa Bay Derby, when I thought we were leading over a winner, it was discouraging. But if you look at his first race, he ran terrible that day, and I had thought he would win. I think he’s just a horse that needed a race.

“We’re going into the Kentucky Derby (G1) in perfect form. He’s already won on the track, which you know is important at Churchill Downs, and the farther the better.”

On his other trainee Cherry Wine, who ran third
“He ran a huge race, too. We’ll take him too and take a one-two punch in the Kentucky Derby.”

Quotes for the $500,000 Central Bank Ashland

Rusty Arnold (winning trainer of Weep No More)

“I thought she’d be that far back, and I told her (my wife, Sarah) about the half-mile pole, ‘I think she can get up for third from here.’ She just kept going, and they backed up a little bit. It was nice for the (owner) Bromagens, and we’ve been pointing for this race for two months.”

On her keys to big improvement
“Two turns, and she just came around. Each race she’s been better and better. Did we expect this? Not quite, but she’s a step ahead of us.

“We’ve got the mile and eighth in the (Kentucky) Oaks (G1) coming up. Jack Bohannan did all the work with her. She was under quarantine at Payson, and he trained her two months. Great job.”
