VOICES top
FROM THE GRANDSTAND top

Peter Miller, leading trainer at the 2012 Del Mar meet, telling Ed Zieralski in the San Diego Union-Tribune last week what winning the training title would mean to him:
“If we could win this meet, to me, it would be better than winning the Kentucky Derby…A lot of bad trainers have won the Kentucky Derby. Not too many bad trainers have won the Del Mar meeting. Look at the list. We have Hall of Famers here.”

Dr. Rick Arthur, CHRB equine medical director, on this year’s Del Mar meet:
“I think it has been a very successful meeting. The trainers are happy with the track, which is unusual for any racetrack.”

Joe Harper, President and CEO of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, on the 2012 meet that wrapped up yesterday:
“We did the Del Mar thing really well…terrific racing and lots of fun.”

Trainer Bill Mott, quoted in Thoroughbred Daily News, on the death of Theatrical, who Mott trained in the 1980s:
“He was my first champion, my first Breeders’ Cup winner. He bought my first home in New York, singlehandedly. He was probably the most life-changing horse I ever had.”
