Robby Albarado, winning jockey: “I had a good trip. I saw the whole field race to the bottom of the hill. I saw the favorite between horses, and I applauded that. That kind of helped me a little bit, coming by at the finish. I swung out turning for home and she ran on quick. I didn’t think she could win this easy, but the whole race she was there for me. I think today was her best distance, going a mile. Anything over that is stretching it a little bit.”

Mike Stidham, winning trainer:, by phone to DRF's Marty McGee: “I wish I owned her myself. With her pedigree, and making her a stakes winner – it’s like hitting the lottery. That was really impressive today. She beat some nice horses.”

Brad Cox (Cash Control, second): “I saw no excuse at all. Our mare is a little hectic in the paddock — kind of different where they can see the race track. But the end the other horse went a little faster, and she won convincingly, so it is what it is.”

Shaun Bridgmohan (Cash Control, second): “I thought I was in a very comfortable spot without fighting her,” Bridgmohan said. “I thought she was moving very comfortable. Obviously the winner ran a great race. Because she ran by me at the eighth. She tried. I thought she handled it great.”

Race 8. Kentucky Downs Juvenile Stakes, 2YO, $350,000, 7 Furlongs
Winner: All Right, followed by Parlor, Hot Dad and Prados Way
Trainer: Kellyn Gorder
Jockey: Channing Hill
Owner: William K. Helwig and Brent Gasaway
Payoffs: $90.20, $27.20, $15.20
Time: 1:25.66
All Right and Parlor both came to Kentucky Downs off races at Ellis Park -- the former was a one-start maiden. All Right gained command in upper stretch and prevailed after a prolonged drive that held off the closing Parlor.

Kellyn Gorder (All Right, first): “It was sort of a last-minute decision. We looked at it and said it was only $750 to enter, ‘Let’s take a look.’ This horse is so well-balanced that I thought he really would handle the up and down of this course. I galloped this horse about a month ago, and hadn’t been back on him. I rode him three days ago. I came back into the barn and I don’t usually tout horses. I said, ‘It’s going to be fun to win a maiden for $350,000. We’ll look at something at Keeneland, probably,” adding that Breeders’ Cup is on their radar.

Co-owner Bill Helwig: “My partner and Kellyn and I talked about it and we all agreed it was worth a shot. He ran a big race at Ellis the first time. But the winner of the race slowed it down so much that there wasn’t any way to catch him. But he had some real gas at the end of that race."

Channing Hill: “He surprised me how well he broke. He broke super, super well and I really was expecting the pace to be a little more contentious. I really wasn’t expecting him to sit close, I was really expecting him to kind of pick up some pieces because I wanted to keep him in the bridle because he was real green last time and today he showed his immaturity a little bit once he made the lead, but he showed his class by staying in front. Last time was a little different. Last time, he was so green and Vickie Foley’s horse ran such a good race that he sprinted from the top of the lane and got separation and then he got to looking around a little bit and at about the eighth-pole he realized that’s who he was supposed to be chasing down. He really put it all together today.”

Declan Cannon, rider of Parlor (second): “It was a huge effort. My horse was a little unbalanced going down the hill. I couldn’t really move on him until we straightened for home. He was eating up the ground. Another furlong, 150 yards, I was the winner. He’s just a nice horse when he goes back to the mile. I know he’s a nice horse.”

Race 9. Kentucky Downs Turf Sprint, 3YO & up, $350,000, 6 1/2 Furlongs
Winner: Successful Native, followed by Hogy, Almasty and Undrafted
Trainer: Aubrey A. Maragh
Jockey: Robby Albarado
Owner: Marco Bommarito
Payoffs: $22.80, $8.60, $6.40
Time: 1:17.51
Successful Native, who finished ahead of Undrafted last time out, did so again at much higher odds than his rival. He led at each call and held off Hogy by a neck.

Robby Albarado, winning rider: “He broke really well, so I took advantage of the inside. He came home fast; he’s a nice horse. This place is getting a lot of hype lately. It’s a great quality horses that are coming here, and I congratulate Corey Johnson and the whole crew for putting on a great show, it’s only going to get better here in Kentucky.”

Aubrey Maragh, winning trainer: “It was a big win for us, he ran really big. Coming into the race, I thought he was going to run a big one. He just beat the favorite and this was the first time he ran against such a big group so I was happy with the race. I’m not sure where we go next. In five weeks we might run (at Keeneland).”

Joe Rocco, Jr., second aboard Hogy: “He broke well, there was a lot of bumping going on around the hill. On paper there, wasn’t much speed in there and I thought he’d be closer than he has been. He put me right there and didn’t have enough to get by (Successful Native).”

Race 10. Exacta Systems Juvenile Fillies Stakes, Fillies 2YO, $350,000, 7 Furlongs
Winner: Lull, followed by Caroline Test, Lady Hansen, Forest Circle
Trainer: Christophe Clement
Jockey: Brian Hernandez, Jr.
Owner: Adele Dilschneider and Claiborne Farm (Seth W. Hancock)
Payoffs: $5.40, $3.80, $3.40
Time: 1:26.04
Lull was favored at 8-5. She was reserved early and took command in the stretch. It was a big win for her connections after she clipped heels and fell at Saratoga as the 6-5 favorite after winning her debut at Belmont.

Brian Hernandez, Jr., winning rider: “First time I rode her and I got lucky that Claiborne and Christophe decided to let me ride her. I talked to Christophe this morning and he just told me that she’s really good if you get her covered up and she’ll just travel great and that’s what happened today. She got a beautiful trip and handled it really well.

Tomas Brandenourger, assistant to Christophe Clement: “Her last start was very bad, unfortunately. She was going okay on the lead and she just clipped heels so we couldn’t judge her of course. We were just hoping that she would come back okay, and she did so she came back quickly and proved to us that she is fine. This was a great day for us and the owner. They (Claiborne Farm) are the biggest farm in Kentucky so it is great to come here and win for them. This race was seven-and-a-half furlongs (sic) so now we know that she can stretch out and win again so that’s a good sign for the future that we can go a mile or even longer. There is Keeneland and the Miss Grillo at Belmont Park, but I will let Christophe decide on that. We just want to make sure she comes back okay and decide where to go after that.”
