Trainer Quotes

Denis Gerard Hogan quotes on Samson Bill (IRE)

He's always threatened to do that. His run at Christmas was very good behind Pylonthepressure,. Maybe he should have won his bumper, but we were putting him down for a stayer, just because he was second in a point. He's built like, and travels like a stayer. He actually has the gears for two though. Some of those bumpers you need to be a two and a half mile, or three mile horse at this time of year. After the last day-over two miles six here-I said lads (owners, the Clashbeg Syndicate) there's nothing that happened other than that he didn't stay. Two to two and a half miles and chasing will be his game. He's built for that. We won't knock him about this year, he might have one more run, maybe at Fairyhouse. It'll be all about chasing next year. He's a big horse and I wouldn't run him on quick ground.

Trainer Quotes

Patrick Carey quotes on Seskin Flyer (IRE)

He lost a shoe before the race and we were nearly withdrawing him. I got a farrier at the track and it's turned out to be a lucky shoe!. He's a real chaser and we said we might sneak a hurdle with him. He nearly fell at the first and then he jumped the height of the shed over the second. I told Andrew to just creep away and see what happens. He stays further and I'm delighted with him.
