Quotes from the $1 million Toyota Blue Grass


Todd Pletcher (winning trainer of Carpe Diem)

“The horse had trained really, really well. We were excited coming into (the race) and happy to see him deliver.

“I’ve got respect for Ocho Ocho Ocho, and I think all the California horses are strong. We kind of anticipated (Ocho Ocho Ocho) might be the pacesetter. He set a :24 (first quarter-mile) and :48 (half-mile) and you don’t expect to put a horse away easily with those kind of fractions. But I liked what I saw (from my horse) the last eighth of a mile.”

Fantasy Quotes


Rosemary Homeister, jockey of winner Include Betty: “This is an amazing little filly. I was in the 11 hole, but I wasn’t all that concerned because she is a closer. I had so much horse down the backstretch, which is unusual for her because she likes to drop way out. I decide to go wide into the stretch and Joe (Rocco Jr.) and I did start going at it around the turn. I was trying to keep him in because I knew he was on one of the horses (Achiever’s Legacy) to beat. Down the late it was just race riding. I just had so much horse. She really dug in to win the race.”

SANTA ANITA OAKS QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

VICTOR ESPINOZA, STELLAR WIND, WINNER: “I thought it was good to be three-wide. I thought it was going to help me get the speed in front of me. It didn’t look like much but those two went and I was able to move out a little at the half-mile pole.

Carter (G1) Quotes


Rudy Rodriguez, winning trainer of Dads Caps (No. 1): "Very nice day. I said to Jose, don't go crazy. It worked out perfect. To win this race back-to-back is amazing. This is a good horse to be around, and we've had him since he was a baby, so it's special. A day like this means a lot to all of us; you work hard, and it pays off. Hopefully, it can just keep coming."

Wood Memorial (G1) Quotes


Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Frosted (No. 4): "This has been a top, special project for my team, my brother, the grooms, etc. We know he has a ton of ability and the last race really made us scratch our heads, asking 'why?' He would go to the lead and throw his head up and stop. We did everything we could to change everything we possibly could that we thought went wrong, including the jockey just because we were changing everything. It all worked out and it's just a special win for our team and Godolphin because he's a homebred [by Tapit] and it enhances his resume by winning a race like the Wood."

Bay Shore (G3) Quotes


Cherie DeVaux, assistant to winning trainer Chad Brown, of March (No. 5): "It was a little nerve-wracking [waiting on the inquiry], but I feel the stewards made the right decision. I think he ran really well. After being in the Withers, Chad [Brown] said maybe try him as a come-from-behind sprinter. It was definitely the right call. He sat nicely in the back and came with a really good kick. We'll see how he comes out of it and go from there."
