Trainer Quotes

A P O'Brien quotes on Fort Myers (USA)

I like him. He was a bit greener than the last fella up here. I probably didn't have any horse in the race with experience that could bring me as far as they did over five here the last day,. He was just a bit raw in front and having a bit of a gawk. It took a few belts just to get him to let down for me and stride but once he got the hang of it he impressed me. Six or seven will be no problem for him, I think that will probably be his range for at least the next month or two.
