"He stumbled coming out of the gates, but when he got on his legs it was like somebody had set fire to him - he was off. What a thrill. Someone beeped a car horn at the three pole and he went even faster."
Michael Hills, jockey, reference to the King’s Stand Stakes 2010

"Equiano has now stamped himself as one of the best sprinters around showing himself equally effective over this extra 1f, his blistering speed was on display as ever."
Timeform, reference to The July Cup

"Equiano put a seal on two spectacular recoveries by blitzing the fastest animals from both sides of the globe."
Lee Mottershead, The Racing Post reference to the King’s Stand Stakes 2010

"Equiano had the perfect temperament for a racehorse, calm, professional and easy to train, and then he was determined and courageous in his races. He just had a marvellous character."
Mauricio Delcher-Sanchez, trainer, King's Stand Stakes 2008
