Frizette (G1) Quotes


Steve Asmussen, winning trainer of Nickname (No. 5): "Alex Solis and Jason Litt purchased this filly as a yearling. I met with them this winter in Ocala during the sales about the possibility of getting to train for [Larry, Nancy and Jamie Roth]. We went out and looked at the 2-year-olds that they had. When this filly walked out of the barn, it was hard to believe she was one of the 2-year-olds. She just had that look and that feel about her from that moment. For things to come together so nice for our stable, the Roths, Alex and Jason - from thinking and looking at her and hoping to being in the position we are today, a Grade 1 winner of a race of the caliber of the Frizette, is wonderful. In the paddock, she looked like she ran.[Assistant] Toby [Sheets] has done a wonderful job with her. She's a beautiful mare who just ran a very good race. For her to go from three-quarters [to a mile] I definitely was concerned about the off going, mainly because of how big she is. That's a lot of weight to get through the mud. She looked so good coming into the stretch; very professional. I'm extremely proud of her."

Kelso Handicap (G2) Quotes


Peter Miller, winning trainer of Appealing Tale, via telephone (No. 1): "He broke slow, and kind of had to rush up. It wasn't what I was hoping for but once he established himself on the lead he really just ran a great race. Really a super ride from Joe [Talamo] and this win is a credit to our whole team. Stephanie Quarter, my assistant over there, did a great job deputizing. We are all elated. [It's] on to the Breeders' Cup next. We'll cross enter in the Breeders' Cup Sprint and Breeders' Cup [Dirt] Mile but we'll probably lean more on entering in the [Dirt] Mile."
