He had so much natural speed and is the fastest Bernardini I have ever trained.

Hilarious comment by Tom Albertrani about Buffum, who has recently retired to stud. LOL, fast Bernardinis…

If horses could talk, what a job this would be. I’d ask that sunofagun right now, ‘Do you like that track as much as you like the grass?’ And if he said yes, I would tell you he should be odds-on favorite, because I think my horse is better than all of those horses.

Trainer Gary Contessa on his Blue Grass Stakes (I) contender Rydilluc

When the guy moved him back he got mad and it caused us to break a touch slow, get squeezed, then he got keen. He wanted to be there close to the lead and then he went to the inside and couldn’t get out of the inside. I was shocked to see he only got beat [4 1/4] lengths.

Trainer Kieran McLaughlin of jockey Ramon Dominguez and Alpha, who finished a disappointing 6th in the Pennsylvania Derby (II). Man, I don’t know how anyone can justify the expense of entering this horse in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (I), but crazier things have happened I suppose. It was “only” a 4 1/2 length loss to the longest shot on the board…

None. None at all. I’m not going to think that until I’m not allowed here no more and that day won’t come. I’ll be here don’t worry.

Trainer Rick Dutrow responding to concerns his 10-year suspension in New York will pass following yet another appeal. Dutrow won a stakes on Saratoga opening day with Pacific Ocean

She is more talented than I already knew she was, to be honest with you… she just jumped through the bridle and drew away.

People have opinions, horses have the facts.

I’d like to have 120,000 people booing me on the way out.

Everything I have right now is because of I’ll Have Another.

Jockey Mario Gutierrez

The way he’s training now, I’m 100 percent certain he’s going to win. He’s doing everything right. We couldn’t ask for nothing more. Nothing more.

Trainer Bisnauth Parboo of Trinniberg when asked if the colt could handle the 1 1/4 mile distance leading up to the Kentucky Derby

I think he’s a good horse, but I think he is over-hyped.
