JULIEN LEPAROUX, SKY HIGH GAL, WINNER: “It (the pace scenario) didn’t go exactly to plan; she was sharp right away, and a little keen before the first turn. She relaxed very well on the backside though. She got a little tired today but she showed a lot of heart, tried the whole way.”
JOE TALAMO, SCARLET STRIKE, SECOND: “It was close, I was hoping we had a good (head) bob; it’s unfortunate. She handled her first time on turf great, handled it real well. We were able to get a good, ground-saving trip.
