JOCKEY QUOTES

JOE TALAMO, UNZIP ME, WINNER: “She’s relaxing so much better now. She had her ears straight up the entire race today, nice and relaxed. I knew Rafael (Bejarano, aboard Czechers) was close because we were going so slow, so around the (5/16 ) turn, I wanted to open up just little to get some breathing room. I threw her a few crosses through the lane just to keep her focused. Her last few races have really been remarkable.”

JOE TALAMO, DREAM NETTIE, WINNER: “I had a perfect trip. I knew we were walking up there and I almost made a middle move at the half (mile pole), but I waited and chirped to him at the five-sixteenths and he jumped into the bridle. He just exploded through the stretch.”

JOEL ROSARIO, MONA DE MOMMA, WINNER: “She ran good. I knew there was speed in the race, so I was patient. I work her in the morning and she has a lot of ability. Today, she showed that ability. She responded really well when I asked her.”

GARETT GOMEZ, VENTANA, WINNER: “I thought we were having a little too much to do on the front end, as far as the pace of the race was concerned. (Rafael) Bejarano dropped off me just a little bit going into the far turn and we were all able to take a little bit of a breather. When we turned for home he started fighting and Bejarano and I hooked up for the last eighth of a mile. He showed a lot of heart and a lot of gameness. First time I’ve been on him and he ran a really good race.”

JOEL ROSARIO, CITY TO CITY, WINNER: “I had a really good trip. This filly will take on whatever, it doesn’t matter, from behind or close to the pace. She’s a nice filly.”

DAN WARD, ASSISTANT TO JERRY HOLLENDORFER, CITY TO CITY, WINNER: “I think she’s a lot better horse than people think. When she works, she really finishes strong every single time. I was surprised she was that far back, but she got in a little bit of trouble at the start and got pinched off. But once she started moving, she was fine.”

JOCKEY QUOTES

ALEX SOLIS, TANDA, WINNER: “The way she won today, against this type of competition is amazing. I know there were only five horses, but they were very good horses. She won very easy and she came back like she didn’t even run. I know she’s been running on the grass, but in my opinion, she would be able to adapt to the surface. She’s a very classy filly.”

TYLER BAZE, TAP IT LIGHT, WINNER: “The only instructions Mike gave me were, ‘Don’t fight him.’ He broke a length behind everybody and I just let him pick it up (pace) as he wanted to. He doesn’t really have a big turn of foot, so when we were going to the three-eighths pole, I just went for it. I didn’t want to wait for someone to come up to me and then have to try and quicken because that’s not his game.”
