Hollie Hughes Stakes Quotes


Mike Hushion, winning trainer of Rereadthefootnotes (No. 3): “I was quite surprised when we made the lead that easily. The final time was pretty good, considering how easily he went the first quarter. But he’s been on his ‘A’ game. He’s such a pro. He always tries, and if he does lose, you usually know why. He’s improved with age; he’s really grown up. It’s nice to get all these West Point people excited, to see them with enthusiasm about a pro like him. It’s nice for me, too. I don’t know what’s next for him; this has been a target for a while.”


Ramon Dominguez, winning rider aboard Rereadthefootnotes (No. 3): “He’s really like a quarter horse out of the gate.  A lot of times horses who are that quick out of the gate are also a little hard to rate – they’re kind of speed bullets.  That’s not the case with him at all.  Obviously he’s got a lot of natural speed, but in terms of rating, he’s excellent.  We were fortunate to get away with a pretty comfortable – even slow – first quarter, but I was very pleased with the way he picked it up from the three-eighths pole home.  On command, he was just picking it up and getting faster and faster.”


NOTE: This is Hushion’s fifth victory in the Hollie Hughes, having won it first in 1998 with Thepromonore and three consecutive years with Papua (2003-05).
