Quote Of The Day

“I can’t tell you what was going through my mind. I don’t think there’s a word that describes it. I don’t think euphoria—I felt a sense of well-being. Hearing those people cheering for this horse and everything, it’s hard to describe. It’s a feeling I don’t think I’ve ever had before, and I said, ‘Thank you, Lord.’ ”

Owner-trainer Tom McCarthy, in the Louisville Courier-Journal, after General Quarters, the only horse the 75-year-old retired Louisville high school principal has in training, won the $750,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (G1) on Saturday to cement a starting spot in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (G1)
