Trainer Todd Pletcher (Sweet N Discreet): “It unfolded sort-of how we thought it would. We were able to get into a good, comfortable spot and pop outside and get into a nice rhythm down the backside. She was traveling really well. It looked like he went into the far turn with a lot of horse and decided to blow the race open right there, and he was able to do it.”
“I was [concerned about the distance], until about the three-eighths pole, and then I felt pretty good about it. She’s a filly that we always thought a lot of, especially as a 2-year-old. It took her a little while to get everything together, and it took her trainer about two years to figure out that she wanted to run longer.”
Jockey Joe Bravo (Sweet N Discreet): “She ran really relaxed and comfortable the first part of the race. She had a really nice target off those other horses. Because she was able to go so easy, she was able to have that good turn of foot that she shows sprinting and stretch it out to a mile and an eighth. She ran great today. My hat’s off to (trainer) Todd (Pletcher); he did all the work.”
