JOE HERNANDEZ STAKES QUOTES

JOCKEY QUOTES

MARTIN GARCIA, SANGAREE, WINNER: “The last time (Dec. 31) he needed the race going five and a half (furlongs). Today, Bob told me to put him in contention and make one run. When I saw that there were three horses going for the lead, that made the race for me. I decided to get him outside and he just took off.”

TRAINER QUOTES

BOB BAFFERT, SANGAREE, WINNER: “I’ve been trying to get this horse in (a race). He’s been here; it’s Congaree’s brother. He’s been working right along every week, a race doesn’t fill or whatever. I’m glad it came off the turf, because I would have scratched him if it would have been on the turf. He’s real heavy, and he would sink right in.”
