Nashua (G2) Quotes

Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Mohaymen (No. 7): "We were a little worried about the kickback, how he would break, and the others that have had more racing experience than him. But he's a very talented horse and I'm glad he lived up to the betting public's odds. He's got a great pedigree. It's just great to win for Shadwell Stable, Rick Nichols [General Manager of Shadwell Farm] and everybody in Lexington. I've been with them for 22 years, so it's a special win. We definitely have Derby fever. [His next race] would be the [Grade 2] Remsen [at Aqueduct] or the Kentucky Jockey Club at Churchill Downs on the same day [Saturday, November 28]."
