LA BREA STAKES QUOTES

JOCKEY QUOTES

JOEL ROSARIO, EVITA ARGENTINA, WINNER: “This filly likes to make one run, so I try to just leave her alone early and keep her comfortable. She relaxed so well today that when we came to the five-sixteenths pole, I had a lot of confidence, and I thought I had a good chance to win. As you could see, she ran very well.”

TRAINER QUOTES

JOHN SADLER, EVITA ARGENTINA, WINNER: “She likes it when she can close, when she has pace in front of her . . . Even Ventura couldn’t close too much in the Breeders’ Cup (Filly & Mare Sprint), because there was no pace. Evita got some pace today.”

NOTES: The winning owners are Theodore Aroney (Halo Farms) and Ronald Judy (Three Sisters Thoroughbreds), both from Rancho Santa Fe.
