Mike Maker (winning trainer of Stunning Sky)

“I was very pleased with the fractions. The race didn’t shape up the way I thought it would, but I left it in Ricardo (Santana Jr.)’s hands, and he rode a great race. She ran some game races, unlucky to lose, at Saratoga. Very deserving. Such a big, classy filly. I like to get a stakes win for (co-owner) Peter Proscia.”

On her future races

“As big as she is, as she gets older, we’ll go marathon distances – no doubt about it.”

Ricardo Santana Jr. (winning jockey)

“She broke pretty good. The pace was pretty hot. The race set up perfectly for her. Turning for home, she switched leads to her right leg. She gave me everything she had.”

Mike Stidham (trainer of runner-up Princess Grace)

“She had a great trip and opened up a big lead. She looked like a winner. That was her first time against those kind of (stakes) horses, and I was very proud of her effort. She ran too good to lose.”
