SUNSHINE MILLIONS FILLY AND MARE TURF QUOTES
JOEL ROSARIO, TIGHT PRECISION, WINNER: “The trainer (Tom Proctor) told me to do whatever I wanted. She’s a very classy filly. Going to the top of the stretch, I saw the three (Pretty Unusual) coming inside of me, but I wasn’t worried. She’s got a real long stride and when I asked her she gave it to me.”
TOM PROCTOR, TIGHT PRECISION, WINNER (AND CLOSEOUT, FOURTH): “I thought they both had a nice chance. I thought the filly that won had the better trip. I’ve got no thoughts right now about what might be next for her. It’s just good to win a $300,000 race, and it’s nice to win in California. I haven’t been that lucky out here. I was here Breeders’ Cup day (Nov. 6 and 7), but as far as training on a regular basis, it’s been the first part of 2001 or something like that since I left.”
NOTES: The winning owner is E.J. Stukey of Plainfield, Il. (outside of Chicago).
