Longines Just a Game (G1) Quotes

December 10, 2019

Brian Lynch, winning trainer of Coffee Clique (No. 5): "A Grade 1 absolutely is the pinnacle for her. She's a homebred, which makes that family so valuable, and she's just such a courageous filly. Just thrilled to see her dog it out like she did." "It's a world title match to be here today, to compete against this competition. But as I've always said, winning form is good form. She had won two in a row, she fit here today, and she ran like she belonged. God bless her."

Javier Castellano, winning jockey aboard Coffee Clique (No. 5): "I had a beautiful trip; it set up perfectly. I had a perfect spot in the race, exactly what I was looking for. Three horses went out for the lead and I was covered up all the way in the race. When my filly took off, she came with a big run."

"It was hard to tell [if I won the photo] in the heat of battle. It was a very emotional race."

Graham Motion trainer of runner-up Strathnaver (No. 2): "I'd feel a little bit better if that wasn't such a tough beat. I told Mike not to rush her, and I wouldn't second guess him if he waited too long to move. She ran a great race, and he gave her a great ride."

Mike Smith, rider aboard runner-up Strathnaver (No. 2): "She ran brilliantly. I want to see the photo. I'm really disappointed, I thought I got there, but evidently I didn't. She ran a tremendous race, I rode her just like Graham told me to, sit and give her one short run. I'm just dumbfounded."

Irad Ortiz, Jr., rider aboard fourth-place finisher Discreet Marq (No. 9): "I got an outside post, and I tried to get her out of there. We got out of there, but my filly has speed. Some horses were going, so I saved her so I could drop in, but we went a little wide. I didn't want to be that wide. I wanted to save more ground."
