The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


Edited Churchill Staff Release Brian Hernandez Jr. (jockey, V V’s Dream, winner): “She sat in a perfect spot just behind the two pacesetters. She got a little bit of a breather around the turn and really went by them own her own. She’s won impressively in two starts here. I think stretching out around two turns shouldn’t be a problem in the future.”

Greg Geier (assistant trainer, V V’s Dream, winner): “She’s still young but has shown a lot of talent already. She spent the summer in New York training for this race. It’s been the plan to run here in the Pocahontas and then to the Breeders’ Cup. I don’t see why she wouldn’t improve stretching out in distance after this.”

Tyler Gaffalione (jockey, Youalmosthadme, runner-up): “She was second best today. She traveled well early on the lead but just couldn’t hold that pace late.”
