Quotes - $125,000 Pin Oak Valley View (G3) (1st division)

Jonathan Sheppard (winning trainer of Angel Terrace)

“It looked like a pretty tough spot, but she is a nice filly. She ran in a restricted stakes at Saratoga and she got beat about a length. (Angel Terrace was fourth in the one-mile Nani Rose on July 29.) She was in front after the wire; she absolutely flew through the stretch. I thought if she settled nicely and if the speed backed up I thought she had a shot to get a piece of it. In fact, I wasn’t really looking for the win. It was great.”

Mike Maker (winning trainer of Kindergarden Kid)

“I expected him to run his race. We had a lot of respect for the two horses who just beat him (Ioya Bigtime and Rahystrada in the Grade 3 Kentucky Turf Cup on September 15) and Musketier (GER) – how could you knock him? This horse is coming around, and I’m very pleased with him.”
