Voices From The Grandstand

  • Gary Stevens after finishing a close third in his comeback race Sunday at Santa Anita:

    That’s the first time I’ve knuckled down on one in seven years, and it felt good. … I thought, ‘Man, this is going to be a storybook comeback.’ It wasn’t meant to be, but it was close enough

  • Retired Hall of Fame jockey Chris McCarron, who runs the North American Racing Academy, quoted by Jay Hovdey in Daily Racing Form on the comeback of fellow Hall of Famer Gary Stevens:

    I guess I’m not making jockeys fast enough.

  • Vin Cox, Managing Director of the Magic Millions, quoted in Thoroughbred Daily News about the people who attend the races in Australia:

    Racing is in our make-up. People enjoy going to the races and getting dressed up. The girls get a chance to get dressed up and when you get the girls there, what happens? The fellows go as well.
