Trainer Quotes

G M Lyons quotes on Brendan Brackan (IRE)

We had Tennessee Heights and Elusive Heights earmarked for this all along and when the rain was coming we decided we'd go with Brendan,. Colin had the choice and with good ground we'd always go with the other horse. I said 'just don't rock the boat and we'll stay with it.'. We had every intention, if the rain came, that Elusive Heights wouldn't run. When we walked the track we said it's not that bad and we'd take our chance with him. It's worked out. You don't like beating yourself but it's a high class problem and I'm delighted for the team. He's been a great old servant for the yard and for Gary Carroll. He owes us all nothing. It'll be more making it up as we go along with him and end up down in Cork for a Listed race. When we step him up to Group 2 we are in trouble so we'll stay listed and Group 3. In a yard like ours we need that and we're lucky to have the horses in the yard so we can have runners in races like this. If the big ones don't turn up we'll pick up the pieces. The other horse ran a blinder and he will get further, which is good. He's a stakes horse and it was a great first run back so it's all positive. We'll have a look at ten furlongs with him. Mrs Patino (owner of Elusive Heights) bred the winner and won with him initially so she'll be delighted.

Trainer Quotes

P J Prendergast quotes on Canary Row (IRE)

I'd like to tell you that was a clever plan but we were frustrated on Saturday and we were whinging and moaning that the rain came on Sunday. He was a fast finishing third on Saturday but unless it's heavy seven (furlongs) is a bit sharp. I knew he was going to run well today, although on the ratings he had it all to do. He finds a leg when the ground is soft and that's his real trip. Ronan gave him a cracking ride too. It's very important for the stud. He's home-bred, and they have the mother and siblings. I've a very happy owner (Rick Barnes). He's in the Cambridgeshire but he's gone up in my estimations. I'm very fond of him at the moment and I think I'll give him a day off. Having said that if I look in the morning and see an outlandish rise in the ratings I could change my mind. He's so exposed at this stage that I doubt he'll get that much. He's the oldest horse in the race by some way, and he knows more about racing at this stage than I do!

Trainer Quotes

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Gymkhana (GB)

He came to me from Ger's. He left Ger's and had then been gelded and had a wind operation,. He came to me and I've just trained him away. I said to Shane there 'I've no idea how fit he is'. He won in France over a mile and that's why we said we'd run him over a mile, though he won over six for Ger. Shane said he got there way too soon. He got to the front and he thought he'd done his job. He was only idling. He loves that soft ground. We might go back for a Listed race on that ground. I'd say he probably has to have soft ground. He's not an over-big horse so I'd say we'll probably go for a Listed race rather than a handicap. He was going to run in a handicap at Listowel but I thought it was too heavy for him.

J A Stack quotes on Onenightidreamed (IRE)

It didn't suit him being in front but he was entitled to do that,. We had to find a way to draw the sting out out of the others and he won snug enough in the end. He has been a great servant - he won't run in the Gladness Stakes at the weekend as the ground is drying out. He could go for the Amethyst Stakes at Leopardstown next if the ground is soft.

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Pincheck (IRE)

He couldn't run when I wanted him to in the Cambridgeshire because he came out in spots. I took him out on Irish Champions Weekend as I thought the heavy ground and a mile and a quarter would be too far for him. I wasn't worried about the ground today going a mile. The bit of time I’ve given him has really stood to him. He's really grown into himself. He's been ultra consistent this year, and he'll most likely be put away now and stay in training next year.

Timothy Doyle quotes on Spanish Tenor (IRE)

I thought that was a great performance off 95. I thought it was a competitive race,. I knew the horse was coming right and Billy said he gave him a great feel all the way and galloped right to the line. We'll consider the Britannia but more than likely we'll stay here and go for a Listed race or Group 3. He wants a little bit of an ease and it was ideal there for him today. It was probably a shade quick the last day in Cork for him. That was a handicap, you could say, today, and he did it fair and square. I think he'll come on more as he's only coming to himself. I'm delighted with that because he showed a lot of promise last year and after the first two runs this year we were a little disappointed. His homework was always very good and he's only coming.

She ran a lovely race last year. I thought the ground might be a little bit gone for her, she is as lazy as hell,. If she turns out as good as her half-sister (Dolce Strega) she will be doing okay. She has a good way of going and she is very honest. She just realised what she was doing in the last 100 yards, and I liked the way she stuck her head down and galloped on to the line. We will try and find a bit of black-type for her somewhere or we might go for a winners of one or a fillies race. I might give her a bit more experience.
