Quotes from $100,000 Shakertown (G3)

Bret Calhoun (winning trainer of Marchman)

“We thought the firm turf here would help him a lot. He’s a big, heavy horse and we thought the firmer going would be good for him and he obviously likes the grass. (Jockey) Robby (Albarado) made a great decision right away from there. The horse was going very easy the first quarter mile and I think that won the race. Robby made some split-second decisions and obviously made the right decision this time.”
