“We’ve had a great time here over the years but it is hard to get those horses back. We are building them up again. We have got heaps like him to come through and I think the next few years will be positive.” Paul Nicholls after winning the Turners Novices’ Chase
“I think we paid £59 to buy into him. We have just the one share but I think there is about 3,500 people in it.”
Karl Budge owns a share in Stage Star at £59 with the Owners Group
“I know Liam is a claimer but he had the balls to sit and think they had done very little, and he judged it to perfection. The horse answered him the whole way through the last two furlongs. These colours, the Benefficient colours, have given us great days.” Tony Martin after Good Time Jonny’s Pertemps success
“We’ve tried to leave no stone unturned but whatever we are doing now seems to be working, which is great. The amount of people who have travelled over, friends and family, who have come over for Jack (de Bromhead’s) race, is great and what Michael O’Leary and Ryanair have done for us is incredible. Everyone has looked after us so well.” Henry de Bromhead after Envoi Allen’s win
“It certainly felt a bit like last year over the first two and I was just thinking ‘Oh God’, but all credit to the horse. He’s very genuine, he’s made an error down the hill and he’s managed to sneak back into second.” Nico de Boinville on Shishkin
“I don’t know why he has come back to life as we haven’t done anything special but he loves being a racehorse and he loves galloping.
He is a horse that would do anything for you. I’m delighted for him and the owners. They are a small bunch of people who just love racing. I am just delighted for the whole team.” John McConnell after his first Festival win with Seddon
