Voices From The Grandstand

  • Owner Mike Pegram, quoted in Thoroughbred Daily News, on the hot sire Midnight Lute—a horse that Pegram campaigned with Karl Watson and Paul Weitman and who already has produced the Pegram/Watson/Weitman-owned stakes winners Midnight Lucky and Govenor Charlie:

    He took us to a lot of places, and now that he’s at stud, maybe he’ll take us to even better places—if that’s possible.

  • Trainer Bob Baffert, quoted by Jay Privman in Daily Racing Form, after Govenor Charlie won the Sunland Derby last Sunday, following recent losses by stable stars Flashback, Super Ninety Nine and Den’s Legacy:

    I got my first 50-point horse!
