Grasshopper Allowance Quotes

Alan Garcia (jockey, Grasshopper, 1st) – “He was impressive. I was on the horse the last two times he breezed and he was very honest. Today he showed just how nice of a horse he is. He was in hand all the time. I was galloping along; he was confident. And when I asked him to go, he took off. Then I decided I just wanted to hand-ride him, so I could save something for his next race.”

 

Kiaran McLaughlin (Grasshopper, 1st) – “It was great to get him back and run a big race after the layoff. He drew well (post 7). The pace was slow, but he was right up there all the way. Alan (Garcia) said he got a little tired at the end, which is what you want to see off the layoff. I was surprised the race came up so tough. It looked more like a Grade 2 (than allowance). We’ll look ahead to the mile race here on Mar. 13 ($300,000 Gulfstream Park Handicap (G2)) which would fit well on his schedule. A big objective for him this year will be to try and win a Grade 1 as a prospective stud horse. We’ll also look at the Carter (G1) at Aqueduct and the Met Mile (G1) at Belmont as options for him.”
