Quotes - $500,000 Juddmonte Spinster (G1)

Todd Pletcher (winning trainer of In Lingerie)

“We were hopeful (of a winning performance). She ran very well at Saratoga against the best 3-year-old fillies in the country and we knew she liked the Polytrack. We were just hoping that she’d transfer that form from Turfway early on. (At Turfway Park, she won her career debut in January and won the Grade 3 Bourbonette Oaks in March.) We knew she was training well, so we were optimistic.”

 

Quotes - $150,000 Bourbon (G3)

Chad Brown (winning trainer of Balance the Books)

“He’s a wonderful horse, wonderful owners – Seth Klarman and Bill Lawrence. All three of this horse’s races have been good. (He is a) Keeneland sales grad (purchased for $160,000 at the Keeneland April Two-Year-Olds in Training Sale); got him here in the spring and brought him back here and won a stakes. It’s been great.

“This horse is getting bigger and stronger, and it’s on to the Breeders’ Cup (Juvenile Turf [G1])”

Mike Maker (winning trainer of Joha)

“It was a tough beat last time (finishing second by a head to Balance the Books in the With Anticipation (G2) on turf at Saratoga on August 30), but I’m grateful for today.”

 

On whether the plan was to take the early lead

“I don’t think we really had an option. He was going to be forwardly placed no matter what post position he drew. But from the one hole, it kind of made it a no-brainer.”
