LEXINGTON, KY (Oct. 14, 2016) – 

Graham Motion (winning trainer of Miss Ella)

“Great that this (race) was graded today. This filly, she’s very tough. She can run on either surface. It’s ironic that this is her first win on the turf because I think she’s actually better on the turf.”

Joel Rosario (winning rider)

“I had a perfect trip, a beautiful trip. It looked like they were going very nice up front. I was just behind them, hoping to make one run.”

Jose Ortiz (rider of runner-up Fair Point)

“She missed the break a little bit, but other than that she ran really hard in the stretch. We almost got there.”

James Graham (rider of third-place finisher Smoke Signals)

“I had a lovely trip sitting there in the second flight – just beautiful and on the bridle. I asked her and she ran down the lane. She was happier to get through the hole (on the rail) than she was getting to it. Once she got into it, she was gone.”
