Quotes from Competitive Edge’s 10 ¼-length debut win


Todd Pletcher, winning trainer of Competitive Edge (No. 9): "He has never disappointed us in anything that he has done, literally, from the first time we breezed him. He continually showed us he's a very talented colt, and every time we did something with him it was impressive. So we had high hopes coming into today. You never know when you run one for the first time. We were impressed, but not surprised."

Lake George (G2) Quotes


Graham Motion, trainer of winner Daring Dancer (No. 2):
"[Jockey] Alan [Garcia] said she never picked up the bridle [in the loss at Belmont, when fifth in the Wonder Again]. I honestly believe it had to be the soft ground. I was having kittens in the paddock here when it started to rain, because it held off all afternoon, but she was a different horse today. Right from the beginning today, she was on the bridle. Alan gave her beautiful ride and was very patient for her today."

Tonalist looking to maintain momentum in G2 Jim Dandy


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Late winter proved to be a frustrating time for trainer Christophe Clement when it came to his talented 3-year-old colt Tonalist, whose campaign had to be put on hold after he developed a lung infection while in south Florida.

Given ample time to recover and develop, Tonalist returned with back-to-back graded stakes victories capped by the Grade 1 Belmont Stakes on June 7. The bay Tapit colt looks to continue his progression and extend his win streak to three in Saturday's Grade 2, $600,000 Jim Dandy for 3-year-olds at Saratoga Race Course.

Shine Again Quotes


Tom Albertrani, winning trainer of Better Lucky (No. 6): "I was getting a little bit concerned until I saw the :44 and change pop up there, and then I thought she could close; it would just be a matter of getting there in time. When they were turning for home, I could see she was getting a little closer, then at the eighth pole, I knew she was going to get up there. It worked out perfectly."
