Trainer Quotes

Mrs John Harrington quotes on Pincheck (IRE)

They went hard and it kind of suited him. He settled behind Donnacha, kicked off the bend and he was never going to stop,. He loves it here. He won his maiden here and has been just touched off here a few times. I think it kind of suits him coming round the bend. That's brilliant to get. His owners Jon and Sarah Kelly are coming over for Champions Weekend so I better find something for him. I have him entered there (Boomerang Stakes). He's a miler and the reason I haven't run him all summer is because of the firm ground. He's a very big horse and probably would be alright on it now but I'd rather keep him right. He's in Killarney next week but I'll give Marshall Jennings a chance there.

Trainer Quotes

M D O'Callaghan quotes on I Am Superman (IRE)

He's a horse that we thought a lot of last year and we stuck him in the Irish Guineas,. Obviously he's a long way off running in a Guineas but he's making shapes of being a very nice horse. That was a very competitive handicap and he's gone and made them look like handicappers. Leigh said he didn't have any choice but to make the move that he made when he made it. He didn't fight with him, let him stride on and he said when he got to the front he switched off and was idling. We might run him in the Tetrarch at the Curragh and if he was to come through that we could maybe think about running him in the Guineas. It's a long way away and I don't want to sound like a lunatic saying he's a Guineas horse after winning a handicap but he's gone and won well and he's beat some decent horses. He furnished greatly over the winter and that's really stood to him. He was second first time out at the Curragh and after that his runs petered out. Second time out he was just a bit too enthusiastic here and on his third run he was as weak as a kitten. We probably shouldn't have run him and then we threw him away and it stood to him. He's an exciting horse to have.

Trainer Quotes

Kevin Prendergast quotes on Madhmoon (IRE)

We've always thought he was a nice horse. You are always afraid of Aidan's but we thought he'd have to be something special to beat our fella today,. He has good finishing speed and hopefully he can go on from here. That's as fast as he's ever gone in his life and hopefully he can repeat it a few times. We'll have to discuss plans now with his owner Sheikh Hamdan.

Trainer Quotes

A P O'Brien quotes on Turnberry Isle (IRE)

he can be a little keen at home but the track suited and he was able to put it to bed before he came off the bridle. He is out of a top class sprinter (Rosdhu Queen) and whether he has maybe more of a sprinter's brain than body and that could be a lot of it (his temperament).

D K Weld quotes on Zuenoon (IRE)

He's a fine big strong colt and he did it nicely. He had a good run first time out at Limerick and he progressed from it,. He got a little bit tired going to the line but I thought he did it well. He's progressive and we'll see how he comes on before making plans.
