Trainer Quotes

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Indigo Balance (IRE)

He was very good. He's a smashing horse with a lovely temperament,. He had been up to Dundalk for the barrier trial and had run very well there so he was like a colt today that had a run already. He was very professional. He's very straight-forward at home and has just always been a really nice colt. I thought he grew a bit there about two months ago and got a bit weak but he's now started to strengthen up again. I've no idea where he'll go now. I have to talk to Michael (Donohoe) and Mr Zhang. It's lovely to get a winner for him first time out. I have five horses for him and he's had two winners and a third now. He did it fairly easily and loved the ground. He's a very easy horse to run because you can switch him off and he can put him exactly where he wants. He went one way and then another way and then got a run. When he got to the front it's wide open spaces, he took a bit of a look and then put his head down and galloped to the line.

Trainer Quotes

A P O'Brien quotes on Sergei Prokofiev (CAN)

We're delighted with him. Donnacha loved him when he rode him in Dundalk,. He's a big powerful horse and has plenty of speed. He came on as obviously he was never away before Dundalk. We'll look at the Marble Hill or the Rochestown with him. Ryan said he didn't think six would be a problem, five or six. He went to the line strong. That was nice for his second race as we don't have the novice races and you are limited after you win a maiden. We always thought he was very nice and between now and Ascot we'd like to get another one into him.

Trainer Quotes

A P O'Brien quotes on So Perfect (USA)

I'm delighted with her. She had a lovely run in Ascot. She just got drawn a little bit out by herself at Ascot but that was lovely and she was able to get a little bit of cover today,. Ryan was delighted with her. He said she's not there yet and there is plenty more to come from her. She is a fine big strong filly. Ryan said going out that he wasn't going to get there too early. She might got to the Cherry Hinton as could Gossamer Wings. I think she'll stay further. She's a big strong filly and she'd have to be a bit weak still because she's so big. I think Joseph liked his filly and the second filly had a very good run with Sergei (Prokofiev). She's a Scat Daddy so I'd say she'd like fast ground.
