Trainer Quotes

Gordon Elliott quotes on Diamond Turf (FR)

He’s a nice big horse but he’s a horse for the future. We’ll mind him this year and keep him for next year,. We knew he’d come on a good bit from the last day so we were happy enough. He stays very well. We normally don’t have to wait until the last race at Navan to have a winner but we knew it would be tough enough today. He might go for a winners’ bumper but he won’t do too much more.

Trainer Quotes

W P Mullins quotes on Tornado Flyer (IRE)

At different times up the straight you could have made any of the three of them the winner. I thought Carefully Selected had nabbed it turning for home and when Patrick came through I thought he was going to win. All the time I could see Richie just keeping his horse covered and I said if he gets a bit of daylight, minds the little bit he has in the tank and plays his card at the right time.. It was a real good ride. Richie claims 5lb and it was a tremendous ride for a 5lb claimer (not able to claim in this race). He rode a winner for me in Listowel two years ago and he's a guy that impresses me, he impressed me that day. It's very seldom we need an amateur rider, with Patrick and Katie, but I've always tried to use him if I could.

P A Fahy quotes on Kalum River (IRE)

That was unbelievable,. He showed us an awful lot after being broken and we got him sold. The heavy winter and the heavy gallops were so hard on him. It was a setback and he kind of went off I'd say. He worked well last week up the Curragh but he wasn't showing it at home afterwards. I thought if he had a nice run I'd be happy, fourth I'd be extremely happy. Patrick said he couldn't even pull him up. It's nice to get an odd surprise. I thought he might be free, all my horses are free in bumpers because we work up a straight and I said to him to drop him out. He dropped him out nowhere. He was riding that for his grand-father. His grand-father won the Oaks on this fellas grand-mother. He'll go hurdling next year I'd say. I'll give him a break now. Robbie Kenneally, who has a share in him, his father was buried today and I'd say his father was helping him on. Robbie and all his owners are at the funeral. There are all from between Clare and Limerick.
