Trainer Quotes

J J Quinn quotes on Project Bluebook (FR)

He didn’t jump as well as he can but his toughness allied to a very brave ride saw him come out on top. He’d a busy time on the flat and then went hurdling off the back of a small break so he may get a break now. He’s only rated 80 on the flat so we’ll have to discuss plans. He might be well handicapped but the owner is primarily a jumping man so we’ll have to see what he wants to do. Dad asked me after Cheltenham where we might go and this race down the years hasn’t been as strong as the Grade 1 in Punchestown. He’d have won the last two runnings of this race on his rating but it was probably a better race this year with the favourite finishing fourth in the Triumph. He was also in the handicap tomorrow but Mr McManus made the call to come here and not surprisingly he got it right. This is the first horse we have for him.
