Futurity (G2) Quotes


Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Annual Report (No. 2): "He got squeezed and dropped back but once he got going he was very impressive. That was a nice win. It ended up an excellent race because he went to the lead at Parx [but today] he took the dirt well and finished strong. We'll probably stretch him out before too long.
