Bernard Baruch (G2) Quotes

Shug McGaughey, winning trainer of Ironicus (No. 1): "I thought we were laying a little bit closer; he was a little bit off the pace. Javier said he felt like he was sitting on the best horse and he said he wasn't going to go wide today and took a chance and hung out. I thought he rode another great race and a great horse. It was a little bit of a throw away because after the Fourstardave I didn't plan on running him here again, but he came out of his race good and he hasn't really been running that much, so I thought we might as well give him a chance. I'm very proud of the track record, any time you can do something like that it goes on the horse's record and you can get somebody to maybe take a look at it."

Javier Castellano, winning rider aboard Ironicus (No. 1): "He's a really nice horse. Unfortunately last time it was a slow pace, the rail was too wide, and I couldn't give the best chance to my horse. Today it was a different ballgame - no rail, a little more speed in the race. I saved all the ground, cut the corner, and really exploded very well. The mile and a sixteenth helped a lot; last time it was a mile. I think the extra sixteenth really helped me to find the kick. He's a nice horse. I'm looking forward to the Breeders' Cup."

Stuart Janney, III, winning owner of Ironicus (No. 1): "We've thought he was a very good horse, and he continues to improve. His last couple of races have been terrific races. Last time, it didn't set up just the way we hoped. It was a slow pace and he had to go wide, and he still ran wonderfully. This time, he had a better trip, better pace, and he really finished beautifully. It was terrific."
