Quotes from the $150,000 JPMorgan Chase Jessamine


Bill Mott (winning trainer of Harmonize)

On whether Harmonize is good enough to advance to the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf
“I think so. It’s nice to see that she’s versatile enough to come from back in the pack like she did. She struggled with ground early and once she got down the backside, she got a little better, a little better. When (jockey Junior Alvarado) turned for home, she turned on the after-burners and was good enough to run them down.

$1 million International Trot at Yonkers Raceway


Norman happy with Invitational Trot draw for favorite Bee A Magician


New York, NY --- Following the draw for Saturday afternoon’s $1 million International Trot at Yonkers Raceway, the phrase of the day is “Girl Power.” Converting the expression into multiple languages might prove tricky, but it is unlikely Bee A Magician’s prowess gets lost in translation for the world’s harness racing fans.

$500,000 In Reality (Florida Sire Stakes) Quotes


Trainer Stanley Gold (Fellowship): "I was hopeful for all three, but I was looking for Abercorn and Brighton Lane, but this one, he jumped up and did it. You never know with the babies. He had a really outstanding work last week that surprised me, and I thought if he ran back to that work, there's no telling.

$500,000 My Dear Girl (Florida Sire Stakes) Quotes


Trainer Marialice Coffey (Flora Dora): "We had faith in her. She's a big, very well-within herself filly. She's always been very relaxed about everything so we thought it was worth a try."

(How long race been on radar): "Since the beginning of time, since they broke her. They had this race picked for her and so they weregoing on with this one. Even though we didn't do what we wanted to do at Saratoga, we at least wanted to keep up with the plan and come here and the rest is history."

Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1) Quotes


Christophe Clement, winning trainer of Tonalist (No. 6): "We're back here, we won this race a year ago and it's great. I thought that even when he got beat this year, he never ran a bad race. He's a top class horse. We're back on top. I'm delighted for Mr. Evans. Obviously, he believed in us all along. And mostly I'm delighted for the horse, I've never lost my faith in the horse. I never thought he was disappointing, he was a bit unlucky for the year, but the way he won today was very impressive. I was very happy with the way Tonalist was travelling. He always looked very comfortable. I thought that at any stage of the race, he could've taken them on. He's back to what I always believed. He's a top class horse. It's a wonderful race, it's great to win it two years in a row. Every start this year, I wouldn't have traded my position with anyone else, even when we got beat. People forget about him, but I never forgot about him."

Quotes from the $1 Million Shadwell Turf Mile (G1)


Brian Lynch (winning trainer of Grand Arch)

“Great to see him, as he gets older, just keep getting better and better. We had this race in mind this year after a game effort last year (second by a length to Wise Dan), and (jockey) Luis (Saez) seems to get along with him fantastic. I was worried about the turf getting a little soft today, but he handled it well. Very exciting finish – makes for a great race.”
