Knickerbocker (G3) Quotes
Niall Saville, winning trainer of Legendary (No. 6): "This is my first graded stakes; this horse won my first stake a month ago [Japan Racing Association Stakes at Parx Racing]. I'm very, very pleased. I was a little nervous with the long stretch here, but they weren't catching him. It's a huge honor to train for Walter Swinburn, and for them to send me a horse like this it's just been great. I'd won at Saratoga Race Course and at Aqueduct Racetrack, but until this year I hadn't gotten it done at Belmont. This race had been the goal."

Trainer Hopes to Make ‘Valid’ Point in Saturday’s $90,000 Eight Miles West
MIAMI GARDENS, FL – Crossed Sabres Farm’s Valid looms as a solid favorite for Saturday’s $90,000 Eighth Miles West Stakes at Gulfstream Park West. If the 4-year-old gelding runs up to expectations in the two-turn mile for 3-year-olds and older, he could very well earn a trip to Southern California later this month.

Quotes from the $150,000 JPMorgan Chase Jessamine (G3)
Dr. Stephen Jackson (director of Three Chimneys Farm, winning owner of Rainha Da Bateria)
“I hope we’re going (to the Breeders’ Cup); we plan to, anyway. She ran huge and (trainer) Graham (Motion) had her teed up and ready to go. We always thought she was a nice filly, so hopefully we’ll be in California in about three weeks (for the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf).”

ZUMA BEACH STAKES QUOTES
COREY NAKATANI, LUCK OF THE KITTEN, WINNER: “He’s got a lot of ability. He’s got a high cruising speed which is good for 2-year-olds and he’s a big strong colt. I have to thank Wesley (Ward, trainer) and the Ramseys (owners) for giving me the chance to ride him. I got to figure him out a little bit today and hopefully we can use this as a steppingstone. He relaxed really nice for me and had plenty left so I think the next step could be the Breeders’ Cup. He deserves a spot in there I think.”
SURFER GIRL STAKES QUOTES
JOE TALAMO, HER EMMYNENCY, WINNER: “Mike (Stidham, trainer) and his assistant Chris (Davis), they’ve done such a great job with her, getting her ready. Really, ever since she broke her maiden they were pointing for the Del Mar Debutante and then this so (it was) a plan well-executed. I’m so glad I’ve been able to get on her in the mornings. I’ve been working her since Del Mar. She’s a very classy filly, so professional. She doesn’t act like she’s only two. I’ve seen her turn of foot in the mornings so I was confident that she would get a mile or more.”
