POTRERO GRANDE HANDICAP QUOTES, SATURDAY, APRIL 4TH, 2009

JOCKEY QUOTES

MICHAEL BAZE, SOUL CITY SLEW, WINNER: “The race went the way we planned it. He broke clean and he loves to relax early. Every time I ride him, when I ask him, he just explodes. I know last time out it was for a tag ($50,000 claiming win), but Jack said he was doing super and acting really good. He ran the same way today that he did last time.”

TRAINER QUOTES

JACK CARAVA, SOUL CITY SLEW, WINNER: “He’s a big old long-striding horse, and for an older horse, he’s a really good-feeling horse. He’s a fun horse to be around – easy to train . . . I’m more happy for him than I am for myself. He’s just a cool horse – a very, very, very nice horse. Hopefully, he’ll continue to do it. He likes Hollywood Park, and the sprint division’s not all that tough right now. Maybe we’ll just keep him down this path for now.”

NOTES: The winning owner is Ron Valenta of La Caňada, who races as La Caňada Stables, LLC.
