QUOTE OF THE DAY

“I’m very excited. First time stretching out, so he was in uncharted waters. He answered that question very well. I’m very, very happy with his stretch out, absolutely. He fought hard. … I thought the horse gave it all he had. I was very, very proud of his effort.”

– Tony Dutrow, who conditions Virginia-bred A Little Warm who led almost every step of the $750,000 Louisiana Derby finishing second.

But when pressed about the colt running on the first Saturday in May, Dutrow also said, “It won’t be my decision. If it was, I would not go.”
