$100,000 Buffalo Trace Franklin County (L)


Eduardo Caramori (winning trainer of Queen’s Award)

“We knew she was running at the end, but we didn’t know if she’d be in time to catch (the leader). We got lucky today.”

On whether he was concerned when she was far back early in the race

“No. That was the plan. Kent (Desormeaux) knew the filly; he rode her in Chicago (in which she was second in the Grade 3 Chicago Handicap on June 29). He rode her with confidence. We needed a Hall of Fame rider to do a Hall of Fame ride, and he did it today. We got it today because of Kent.”

Athenia (G3) Quotes


Cherie DeVaux, assistant to winning trainer Chad Brown of Pianist (No. 5) and third-place finisher and beaten favorite Samitar (No. 3): "This year, Pianist has been outstanding for us. I think she ran similarly to last time [second in the Grade 2 Ketel One Ballston Spa]. Jose [Ortiz] watched the replay of that race, and watched her sit off Laughing and she hung in there. He did the same thing today, and it worked out."

Knickerbocker (G3) Quotes


Christophe Clement, winning trainer of Za Approval (No. 7): "He got the firm turf. Great horse, nice horse. He's won three graded stakes this year. He's a fun horse. When I ran him in Grade 1s, he got beat by two of the best milers in the country. He's been getting better all of his life. He's been a great credit to the Live Oak team and Mrs. [Charlotte] Weber because they have been very patient with him, and it's wonderful when it works out."

ANOAKIA STAKES QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

VICTOR ESPINOZA, BAJAN, WINNER: “It was a great trip, a lot of fun actually. She set up the way I wanted. She’s amazing when she runs on the dirt. The last couple of times, when she ran on synthetic, she was a little bit down. She really loves to run on the dirt. Later on, she might stretch out. I think she’s improving right now. I’ll have to keep riding her a little bit all the way to the wire so that I teach her for the future, so hopefully we can go long. She’s a young filly now. We’ll go race by race and wherever they decide to run her will be the right choice.”

CALIFORNIA DISTAFF HANDICAP QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

COREY NAKATANI, QIAONA, WINNER: “That’s her, that’s her style of running (coming from off the pace). You try not to change it, or leave her too much to do. She came with her ‘race face’ on today and I knew she was ready. I kept her happy, and let her run. She was ‘spot-on’ today, she has that racing fight in her. I know that six and a half probably isn’t her best distance but the race set up for us and I knew she was going to put in a big kick. I rode her with a lot of confidence, she put in a big kick and we got there.”
