Jimmy Toner, winning trainer of Recepta (No. 5): "I think the key to her development this year is more maturity than anything. She was kind of washy and sort of flighty last year and couldn't take too much. We gave her the winter off and brought her back in the spring, and she's taken every step that we've wanted her to take. I was a little disappointed with her race in Monmouth, but what are you going to do? Since that time, she's responded to everything we've done. We'll probably come back in the Athenia [Grade 3, October 17, Belmont Park]. We mapped out a plan for her early on: the De La Rose, which was restricted - worked out perfect. Wanted to get a graded stake - worked out perfect. She'll have two more starts this year, and if she comes back next year bigger and stronger I think she can develop into something special."
Elvis Trujillo, winning jockey aboard Recepta (No. 5): "I had a perfect trip. Three or four horses went to the lead. At the three-eighths pole they started to stop and the horses next to me started putting pressure on them. When I turned for home, I asked her and she was gone. She's a very nice horse."
