Evening Attire Quotes

Jonathan Thomas, assistant to winning trainer Todd Pletcher of Understatement (No. 1): “There wasn’t that much speed in the race, so we figured he would be out there – especially since that’s been his best style at Aqueduct.  He’s run some of his best races over the inner track.  I thought that when he was still on the bridle and everyone else started falling off the bridle we were going to have a pretty good chance.  I think it just gives him a big heart to be out like that.  He’ll stay here; we’ll talk to Todd to see what he wants to do next.”

 

David Cohen, winning jockey aboard Understatement (No. 1): “That was really the plan from the get-go, just go to the lead and let the other entrymate trail.  I think this horse seems to obviously show that the way he wants to run is get on the lead and open up a little bit.  He’s a big, long horse, he’s got a long stride to him and he was very well-prepared.  Thank you Todd Pletcher and Mr. Pompa for the continued support.”
