Excelsior Quotes

EXCELSIOR QUOTES


Michael Hushion, winning trainer of Goldsville (No. 4): Getting a mile and an eighth for the first time was a relief. He held them safe. I can't say I wasn't nervous. There's a reason my teeth are half the size – from grinding them down.

“After the allowance win … this was the obvious race, the next step. We've gotten quite a few from California. This owner, Marc Ferrell, has sent four or five to us. This horse had his dirt form with Bill Mott.”


Ramon Dominguez, winning jockey aboard Goldsville (No. 4): “We were able to get in good position with very comfortable fractions. He was very tough today, especially in the stretch. He really tried hard. Today, he ran the same way as he did a few weeks ago when I was riding him for the first time. He just settled behind the pace then took the lead. This horse continues to improve.”


Todd Pletcher, trainer of runner-up and beaten favorite Nite Light (No. 3): “It was kind of what we were afraid of; a mile and an eighth is just not his best distance.  He finished up well. He just ran out of ground.”


John Velazquez, jockey aboard runner-up and beaten favorite Nite Light (No. 3): “He had plenty of time, but he didn’t run until the last leg of the race.  This isn’t his best distance.”
