SENSATIONAL STAR HANDICAP QUOTES, SUNDAY, MARCH 29TH, 2009

JOCKEY QUOTES

RAFAEL BEJARANO, LIBERIAN FREIGHTER, WINNER: “He felt so good in the post parade today and he improved a lot. I knew the seven (My City by the Bay) would show more speed than me, so I decided to let him go and follow him. When I felt pressure from the other horses coming from behind, I let him go and he took off. He finished great.”

TRAINER QUOTES

JOHN O’DONOGHUE, ASSISTANT TO NEIL DRYSDALE, LIBERIAN FREIGHTER, WINNER: “This horse is versatile and (Rafael) Bejarano knows him well. I didn’t have to tell him anything. He does a great job. I don’t know (what race might be next). We’ll be looking at a couple of stakes at Hollywood (Park) on the all-weather (Cushion Track).”

NOTES: The winning owner is Shawn Dugan of Playa del Rey, and the Estate of Eddie Nahem and Charles Winner.
