Riskaverse Quotes


Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Midnight Watch (No. 6): "I told him [jockey Irad Ortiz Jr.] not to rush her too much, just ease into it, and we got a nice :23 4/5 first quarter. He did a great job riding her. She is difficult and wants to go fast. We're just happy to get this stakes win behind her. It has been a great meet. Horses are running well. A lot of them were second early in the meet and came back to win. We've had a great meet."

Irad Ortiz, Jr., winning jockey aboard Midnight Watch (No. 6): "That was easy: break, and she has speed. I tried to get her relaxed as much as I could. She was pretty good all the way and when I asked, she picked it up. That's all I did. I thought it would be tough for them to run me down because I was going easy. She was always going :46, :47 and she was still running."

With Anticipation (G2) Quotes


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Bashart (No. 1): "Javier kind of let him run away from there, and he made the lead and relaxed. The turf course has been playing that way like the past seven to 10 days, so it was a good spot to be. He responded every time they came to him. He found a little more."

Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords Stakes Quotes


Janet Elliot, winning trainer of The Grey Express (No. 5): "We bought her last year, actually, specifically to run in Saratoga. [When she was turned out] the other mare kicked this mare in the shoulder and gave her two chips, so that was her out for the rest of the year. .So, this has really been her first year. In a way it's helped, because she's had a year to acclimatize. She's game; she really tries. When she's on, it looks like she digs in and does her best. She did a nice job. She's a good girl."

Ross Geraghty, winning jockey aboard The Grey Express (No. 5): "She's very good. She's not flamboyant. She's just very efficient. She gets in tight and pops away. I didn't ask for anything from her, apart for the last two. When you do [ask] she gives you everything."
