Toboggan/Fred Capossela Quotes

TOBOGGAN QUOTES

 

Tonja Terranova, assistant to winning trainer John Terranova of Wall Street Wonder (No. 4): “He’d been training super.  He showed no ill-effects from running so fast last time. Once he breezed last week and went tremendously, we knew that we’d run him.  He has a tendency sometimes to wait on horses; I know in the last one he drew clear.  Custom for Carlos is a very nice horse and he’s been battle-tested.  This was a very big effort on our horse’s part and we’re really proud of him. The Carter [Grade 1, seven furlongs, April 3] is the goal now.” 

 

Channing Hill, winning jockey aboard Wall Street Wonder (No. 4): "He's the kind of horse who will keep his head in front. Today, he got a real class test with Custom for Carlos, and he passed."

 

Eddie Kenneally, trainer of runner-up Custom for Carlos (No. 1): "He ran his race. We're happy with the way he performed. There are a few races coming up in the Midwest we'll focus on, but we won't make any decision now."

 

Julien Leparoux, jockey aboard runner-up Custom for Carlos (No. 1): "He broke well, and he didn't go too fast the first quarter, which was good. My horse is a big horse; maybe if we were on the outside we would have gained a little bit there, but he was good. We came back on him a little bit at the end."

 

 

 

FRED "CAPPY" CAPOSSELA QUOTES

 

Gary Contessa, winning trainer of Castaneda (No.  3): “It was not my thought to come into this race, but when we heard it was going to be a light field, we decided to enter.  This horse has just found himself sprinting.  He’s a good horse and a New York-bred as well.  He probably could use a little time off after this race, but he might be Bay Shore [April 3] material.  We’ll see."

 

Jorge Chavez, winning jockey aboard Castaneda (No. 3): "I didn't expect to be in the lead but he did it so easily. I said 'Well, I have to do what I have to do.' It wasn't my plan but sometimes if plan A doesn't work out you have to take plan B."
