Trainer Quotes

A P O'Brien quotes on Gustav Klimt (IRE)

We're very happy, obviously the ground was far from ideal, but it was nice to get a run into him as it's a long time since he ran. Ryan was very happy with him,. Ryan said he was very impressed with the way he quickened in that ground. He's a real good ground horse. Newmarket is the plan if everything is well. US, we knew he'd hate the ground but he needed to get out, and Donnacha's horse (Kenya) will stay further. US might go to the Guineas now and he'll grow another leg between now and then.

Trainer Quotes

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Landshark (GB)

He was bought at the Goresbridge Breeze Up Sale by Eamonn Reilly. He was an expensive horse (E210,000) and it's nice when they come out and win first time. He's a gorgeous horse. He will probably be a seven furlong horse but we started him over six having come from the breeze up in case he was a bit free. Colm said he was always going to get out and he didn't want to bustle him. He wanted him to have a really nice experience today which he did. He's the first horse that Bob Ellis has had in Ireland. He's been in Saratoga so hopefully he will get over sometime.

Trainer Quotes

K J Condon quotes on Romanised (IRE)

We liked him at home but they have to come and do it. He has been working right from the start but I suppose he has only been on the grass once. Shane (Foley) said he missed the break a little bit but he was happy to do that. He was able to follow some principals. He travels through a race like a good horse. He has the ability if we just keep his mind right. He could be a Coventry Stakes horse. He'll be entered in the Norfolk as well and I suppose maybe the Marble Hill. There was a lot of chat about a lot of horses in that race. I'd say it was a very good maiden. Put it this way it's not a surprise as we do like him. With the man that owns him, he's not going to be sold. It's nice to have a horse like him. He has a good pedigree and has a big future I hope. He has a nice relaxed way of doing things and he seems to stay as well.

A P O'Brien quotes on U S Navy Flag (USA)

You'd be delighted with him. We were going to go to the Morny and the Gimcrack with him but we waited as it was nicer ground here,. He's a fast horse and he keeps going. I'd imagine he'll go for the Middle Park or something like that. I'd say that's where he'll probably go. Good ground is only an advantage. I wouldn't think he's a soft ground horse as he's a very good mover and he's fast. You'd say he's progressed from his last run. He galloped out well there.
