    From trainer Ken McPeek, who conditions the winner Daddys Lil Darling:

    “I didn’t give (jockey Brian Hernandez, Jr.) any instructions,” said McPeek. “From the 13-hole it’s tricky and we’ve got complete confidence in Brian, whatever he decided. It was great that she showed early speed – she’s had some races where she kind of went too back and had a hard time getting through traffic, but I don’t know if it was the course or Brian’s hands or whatever, even the class of the race, but it’s a big deal to see her laying closer.”

    From Brian Joseph Hernandez, rider of the winner:

    “She was the class of the race,” said Hernandez. “The best thing to do with her today was just stay out of her way, let her find her rhythm, and that’s what she did. Kenny had her so prepared today that all I had to do was just kind of be a good passenger, and she’s a Grade I winner, she knows what she’s doing out there – I just let her do her thing.”

  • Look for SKY PROMISE in the JOHN BATTAGLIA MEMORIAL STAKES
    02/23/2018

    RACE 5: THE JOHN  BATTAGLIA MEMORIAL STAKES
    SKY PROMISE was dead last turning for home in his three-year-old debut but closed well and galloped out strongly. He figures to move forward for Ken McPeek, who won this race last year, and he gets the nod with Jack Gilligan back aboard. ROAMING UNION showed dramatic improvement last out for Kelly Breen and won impressively. He made an easy lead from the inside post in that one but will probably rate just behind the early leaders tonight. Look for another solid performance with Martin Garcia coming in for the mount. TRUTH BE TOLLED is another one who has improved with every start. He has the speed to be on or near the lead and figures to be tough to catch. FAMILY KITTEN is a maiden but Maker adds blinkers and he has to be respected in a well matched renewal of the John Battaglia Memorial.
