SUNSHINE MILLIONS FILLY AND MARE SPRINT QUOTES
RAFAEL BEJARANO, QUISISANA, WINNER “I let her break on her own, but I wanted to be close to the pace with her. I knew the three (Miss McCall), the seven (Libor Lady), and the 11 (High Resolve), would show a lot of speed. When we got to the stretch, we were in a perfect position and I gave her a chance to switch leads and she kept running. She was really tough today.”
MIKE PUYPE, QUISISANA, WINNER: “It was a very competitive race on paper, and I was just hoping she’d run her race. She’s at her home on synthetic . . . I thought she got the photo. They didn’t get by her. She’s tough. She’s not very big, but she’s gutty. They ran right to her and she held them off. Raffy gave her a perfect ride. I’m proud of the way she dug in when the other horse got to her. She had the whole stretch to have a chance to get beat and she wouldn’t let that other horse get it done. She just kept going.”
NOTES: The winning owners are Robert Naify and Jan Van DeBos of San Francisco, who race as Ran Jan Racing, Inc.
