APPLETON Stakes Quotes

Roger Attfield (Society’s Chairman) – “He’s had his share of problems over the years, which explains why he hasn’t run that many times (20), but I space his races and give him time when he needs it, and he runs his race for us just about every time. A mile is probably his best distance and he likes a shorter stretch rather than the longer one at Woodbine. I’ll take him to Kentucky and perhaps run him once there or just wait until we get back home (Woodbine) and run in the Connaught Cup early in the meet (May) again.”

 

Jose Lezcano (jockey, Society’s Chairman, 1st) – “This was my first time on the horse, so I watched a couple of his previous races. It looked like he may have been asked to move a bit too soon, so the trainer (Roger Attfield) told me to take him back and just wait. I knew at the quarter-pole that I had plenty of horse, and when the other horses started to move, it was time to ask my horse for his run. And when I asked him, he gave a big kick from the quarter to the wire.”

 

Javier Castellano (jockey, Rahy’s Attorney, 2nd) – “"I have no complaints. I had a dream trip. It was tough to get beat that way, but they (the connections) should definitely be looking forward with him."

 

Eddie Castro (jockey, Kiss the Kid, 3rd) – “I was in pretty good position but my horse really didn’t like running on the inside today.”
