Voices From The Grandstand

  • Dale Romans, shortly after winning the Eclipse Award for outstanding trainer, when asked if he had responded to a congratulatory text from Bob Baffert:

    No, not yet. I’m waiting to think of something clever to say.

  • Newspaper editor Dave Schlenker, quoted by Kathy Mancil of the Ocala Star-Banner, after a Marion County (Fla.) charity competition in which he squared off against a local wrestler and then won the right to kiss a horse:

    Strangely, I was more comfortable wrestling than I was kissing the horse. It was an honor, but the horse really wasn't in the mood.
