Trainer Tony Dutrow continued to marvel Sunday morning at Rightly
So’s impressive front-running victory in the Ballerina, and said that both
she and A Little Warm, fifth in the Travers, appeared to come out of
their races in good order.
“A Little Warm is a little quiet this morning, but physically
they both seem like they’re very good,” Dutrow said. “I’m not surprised at what
[Rightly So] did. She is capable of going that fast and keeping it going. She
performed brilliantly, so impressively. It looks like she’s getting better. I
couldn’t be more proud of our gang that’s hung in there with her and helped her
become what she is – a Grade 1 winner at Saratoga.
A lot of people in our camp have worked very hard with her, and they deserve
the credit, but ultimately Rightly So deserves the most credit.”
Dutrow added that he was not closely analyzing A Little
Warm’s race in the Travers.
“I’m not going to come up with anything,” he said. “I’m
feeling like we had a real chance going into the race – we couldn’t have been
happier with the way our horse went into the race. I’m not seeing any excuses
before or after, and we certainly don’t need to apologize for A Little Warm,
he’s been fantastic. He’ll get another chance someday. Congratulations to the
