Colonel E. R. Bradley quotes

Col. E. R. Bradley quotes


Charlie Smith (owner-trainer of winner String King): “This is a marvelous horse who has won stakes at three, four, five, six and seven. Outside of winning the KY Derby, winning a Grade III in front of the home folks is enough for me. I can tell you the strength of this horse in one word – tenacity.”


Mike Smith (jockey, runner-up Gentleman’s Kitten) “(The winner) had to really run to get by me.  I have no excuses.”


Shaun Bridgmohan (jockey, Highball, 3rd): “I thought he ran hard. He had to overcome the pace. He tried and ran well.”


Florent Geroux (Villandry, beaten favorite, sixth): “Good trip. I had nothing under me. He was flat. He was feeling good and I thought I put him in a decent spot. I didn’t want to give him too much to do.  I was spotting the 5 (winner String King) all the way, but turning for home he just didn’t have it.”
