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


JOCKEY 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


JOCKEY 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.”

Matron (G2) Quotes


Michelle Nevin, winning trainer of Paulassilverlining (No. 2): "I couldn't have been happier. Jose [Ortiz] gave her a perfect ride and everything worked out for us. She's very smart and responds well to your hands. She'll go easy, and she's got some speed too. We'll see how she comes out of this and go on from there. Right now she's so sharp, we're willing to keep her sprinting."

Futurity (G2) Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Blofeld (No. 2): "I thought he lost his momentum when he got squeezed out on the turn. It took him a while to regain it and I thought it might have left him with too much to do, but he put in an explosive last sixteenth of a mile. The plan going into this race was to go next to the Nashua [Grade 2, $200,000, Aqueduct Racetrack, November 2], but I will talk to the connections and see if that's still the plan."

Quotes from the $250,000 Dixiana Bourbon


Ken McPeek (winning trainer of Lawn Ranger)

“I felt like he needed to go to another level. His race at Kentucky Downs (a 3¾-length maiden victory Sept. 13) was a pleasant surprise. He seems like a horse that’s maturing, and I think he’s gonna be even better as a 3-year-old. Our fingers are crossed that will happen.

Quotes $350,000 In Reality Division Florida Sire Stakes


Trainer Stanley Gold (Sing Praises) – “I told you last time it wasn’t the distance. He just thought he had it. He (Ramsey Zimmerman) rode him smart today and had it when he needed it. I left Ramsey alone and said, ‘Ride it like you see it.’

“I couldn’t tell (who won it) Looking at the other one, his head was higher up and our’s was down. I couldn’t tell. I’m always doom and gloom in those situations, unless it’s obvious. I couldn’t tell.

Quotes $350,000 My Dear Girl Division Florida Sire Stakes


Trainer Jose Pinchin (Holywell): “She ran exactly the way I expected her to run, getting the lead from the one hole. Last time she won, she galloped out five or six lengths ahead of the field, so I knew she was going to get a mile.

“Last time, she fought seven furlongs straight. She didn’t get an easy lead. I knew she was going to get an easy lead this time.

Terry Finley, president of West Point Thoroughbreds, co-owner of winner Ring Weekend (No. 1): "[Trainer] Graham Motion had called me [to discuss about running Ring Weekend over soft turf]. He's over at the Arc. He kind of threw it on me. I've been around the business. I threw it right back on him. We felt pretty comfortable."
