Fall Highweight Quotes (G3)

December 10, 2019

Gatson Grant, winning trainer of Green Gratto (No. 5): "It's hard work and very emotional. I had this horse since he was a yearling, bought him and he just kept trying. I knew all along he was the kind of horse to win a graded stakes race because he always showed it in the mornings. It was just a matter of putting it together in the afternoon. He's just one tough guy and there's no quit in him. I really can't say much about it other than to Thank God for this opportunity." "I wasn't concerned with the week layoff because when he came back the next day it looked like he didn't lift a hoof. He was acting good and we put him on the track and he was training awesome. He came back from last time like he didn't even break a sweat so we figured we'd give him a shot in here. We were trying to go to the Cigar Mile until we heard Private Zone was entered but we knew at three-quarters this horse was really tough. We're going to give him a breather; he's been racing all year. He deserves it. He's the one that tells us where we're going with him."

Kendrick Carmouche, winning rider aboard Green Gratto (No. 5): "Last time I rode the horse, I kept him together pretty good and let him go nice and easy, but it didn't work out. This time, I told the trainer, 'I'll just let him roll. That's the only way we're going to win.' And that's the way we won. He ran a good race. Hats off to the trainer, he did it all. I was just a good pilot."
