Suwannee River (G3) Quotes

Feb 9, 2019
Trainer Kelly Breen (Valedictorian): “She was sharp. I didn’t think she could get a mile and an eighth. Things worked out. The pace worked out. Tyler rode her great. The 4 horse [Rymska] is just a pretty, pretty filly. To see her in the paddock, she was just a classy, beautiful-looking horse. If we got a chance to scoot away from her at the top of the stretch…you don’t know how game plans are supposed to come to fruition but it worked out today. It was awesome. She’s gotten better. Even going into this race, she was sharp. To see a horse that’s been running once a month and stay this sharp is part of the reason why we ran in the race. We were going to skip it, we were going to look at a different thing, and [owner] Harriet [Sawyer of Epic Racing] came to the barn and saw her last workout and said, ‘Would you mind going for it?’ and we did it and here we are in the winner’s circle.”

Jockey Tyler Gaffalione (Valedictorian):  “I put her in front. Nobody went with me so I took a nice little hold. She relaxed and had her ears up the whole way. When I asked her to run, she really exploded. She had everything her own way today.”
