Trainer Quotes

T Hogan quotes on Gordon Lord Byron (IRE)

He doesn’t relish that ground any longer but Chris was brave and said he’d ride him up there as nothing was going to come from behind here today on that ground. He went through it thank God but he’s a good actioned horse. He’s tough and he’s genuine. That’s his 16th win and I’d like to get to 20! He’s back up there close to the level when he won the Minstrel last year, and that’s a race he’s likely to go for again. It’s a privilege to have him and his owners. He’s a very special horse. He’ll be up in the invitation area now for races abroad again but he’s a horse that has always needed a lot of attention to keep him right. My head man Paddy O’Brien who led him up today takes care of him all the time. He gets a mile well so seeing the trip out today was going to be no problem to him but it’s nice to win over six furlongs as well.

J S Bolger quotes on Flight Risk (IRE)

We always knew there was a big performance in this horse and there is probably better to come on days when everything goes right for him,. That's the first time he's run well on that good ground and maybe he's hardening up. I'd say he could go a mile and he's even run well over six.

G M Lyons quotes on Ardhoomey (IRE)

We tucked him in today and put a tongue tie on to see if it helped. I suppose if you're not in you can't win,. He's a pleasure to train, and I'm delighted for his owner, John Quinn from Kilcock. He also bred him, and it's the only horse he has. I think he can run in all the big races on fast ground next year.

Trainer Quotes

A P O'Brien quotes on Cougar Mountain (IRE)

He's a horse we've always really liked for fast ground. We always thought he'd have no problem with five, six or seven and he might get a mile. We thought last year he was our best two-year-old and he has a chance of being a Group One horse. He was quite green. I gave him a slap down the shoulder and got there too soon so I had to stay going and pushed him out hands and heels. It's always frustrating when you have a good one at home standing in a box. He never had any major problems but when he got near a run he had little setbacks. He was coughing for a while and had a stone-bruise as a two-year-old that took him a while to get over. In the second half of last year we said we'd have him for next year and we hoped to have him out earlier than we did. I think he could be a very good horse, whether that's a sprinter or a miler I don't know.

W McCreery quotes on Downforce (IRE)

He loves that ground and Penny Pepper finished second to us last year too so it's the same two and those Fast Companys love that ground. He just goes through it when others can't and I was delighted to see it barely raceable today. The ground, to me, is barely raceable and he was the only one who could handle it. We'll have to try him on a bit better ground now - I won't ever run him on firm but he has ran crackers of races on good ground in the past. We'll keep stepping him up, he's a grand horse but today was his Derby as we have to make hay with him early on, and late on, in the year.

Trainer Quotes

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Khukri (IRE)

I kind of didn't expect that. He had three runs last year and we put him away after he won. He's a sprinter and I haven't really trained sprinters before. This was sort of the only place we could go so we put him in here and hoped for the best. We really didn't know what to think because he's just been working away at home and his homework probably wouldn't inspire you. It doesn't matter as he put his head in front at the right place. He had a good draw which was great.

Trainer Quotes

Ms Sheila Lavery quotes on Mr Scarlet (GB)

I bought him from Joe Foley at Fairyhouse and paid more for him (72,000 euro) than I have for any horse,. He's always been a very smart horse, and Gary said the last day that he would win next time. He's still fat and has loads more improvement. Gary said he put his ears back and really wants to race. He's got a great attitude and just eats and sleeps, hence he's fat!

A P O'Brien quotes on Peace Envoy (FR)

He's turned into a big, strong horse now and I'm very happy with him today. He's a handsome horse. He's getting better this horse and is progressing well. He's a big horse. We thought he would progress and he is. You'd have to be very happy with him there. Every week he is getting better. He's getting bigger and stronger and his mind is coming lovely. Ryan was very happy with him. Ryan was very confident after riding him the last day as he knew the horse well. He was very confident on him. He could come back here for the Phoenix Stakes if Caravaggio doesn't come or he could go for the Morny. On today you wouldn't say he wouldn't get seven furlongs. He reminds me very much of Rock Of Gibraltar. Knowing Rock he's very much like him although he has a long way to come obviously.

Trainer Quotes

Joseph G Murphy quotes on Only Mine (IRE)

she was always travelling well and I think she is improving all the time. She will probably go for the Group 3 (Phoenix Sprint Stakes) at the Curragh on August 13, and then we will think about the Group 1 (Haydock Sprint Cup) which she was seventh in last year. Anything bar extremes in the ground is fine for her and she is very genuine and very consistent. I love her to bits and she never runs a bad race, and is building up a fine pedigree page.

Trainer Quotes

A P O'Brien quotes on Alphabet (GB)

He'd a couple of good runs. He galloped home well and will get further. He'll step up now and could go to Leopardstown for a Guineas Trial. We are happy with the way the horses have run today. You are never sure how forward they are this time of the year before you run. We won't have a two-year-old runner out until the Dundalk meeting (on April 12) or maybe the meeting here the weekend before that. They will be just ready to start. Caravaggio will work here tomorrow and then the plan is to go to Dundalk for the Listed Patton Stakes (on April 12) over seven furlongs. Everything seems fine with him so far. Churchill is good and everything seems to be fine so far with him as well.
