BUFFALO TRACE FRANKLIN COUNTY ATTRACTS OVERFLOW FOR FRIDAY

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.”
