Gallant Bloom Handicap (G2) Quotes


Linda Rice, winning trainer of La Verdad (No. 2): "I think she needed the race. She's been carrying a little extra weight with having had that issue at Saratoga. We missed a little training. I thought she broke just a tip flat-footed today. She's usually much quicker away from there, but she hadn't run in a while. I've had to work hard to get her here and we lost some time, but I think this race will do her a lot of good. She'll move forward and will be harder to beat next time."

Jose Ortiz, winning jockey aboard La Verdad (No. 2): "She broke well. She took the lead easy. I had a little pressure from the outside, but after that she settled down and she was fine."

Beldame (G1) Quotes


Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Wedding Toast (No. 2): "[The layoff was] not much of a concern if you saw her worktab. Last week, she worked three-quarters [of a mile] in 12, so she's been fit. She just had a little foot issue and we had to skip the [Grade 1] Personal Ensign [at Saratoga] and then, thinking about it, we thought this was a better spot anyway because she loves the one turn. As good form as she's in, she'll be able to handle two turns [in the Breeders' Cup Distaff]. She's won at two turns. But this race was here and it's a Grade 1, so it worked out well. I don't say it very often, but I asked him [Jose Lezcano] not to give her a hard race if he didn't have to because she looked that good on paper. We have a big race in five weeks. Couldn't have asked for better, it really went perfect."
