Lonesome Glory Steeplechase (G1) Quotes


Leslie Young, winning trainer of Gustavian (No. 4): "Last year we opted to skip Saratoga. Not that he can't run over firm ground, but it gets a little firmer over the summer. We opted for the same plan [this year]. We freshened him up, happy and healthy coming into Belmont, a big, galloping track. He liked it last year, so we thought, 'Why not for a big Grade 1 like this?'"

Ashley T. Cole (NYB) Quotes


Timothy Hills, winning trainer of Kharafa (No. 1): "I had been watching the races and it seemed like pace wasn't holding up. I started to tell that to Javier [Castellano], but I didn't think it was possible for him to take him back [off the lead]. He said, 'You know, this is a good post to just go.' And I said, 'You know something? He's a good horse. You ride him the way it comes up.' As strong as the horse is, there is no way he'd be able to get him off the pace."

Noble Damsel (G3) Quotes


Mike McCarthy, assistant to winning trainer Todd Pletcher, of Peace Preserver (No. 5): "She'd had a little bit of rough luck this summer. She obviously has an affinity for this place, and it was nice to see her put it all together.
