LA PUENTE STAKES QUOTES

JOCKEY QUOTES

JOE TALAMO, DREAM NETTIE, WINNER: “I had a perfect trip. I knew we were walking up there and I almost made a middle move at the half (mile pole), but I waited and chirped to him at the five-sixteenths and he jumped into the bridle. He just exploded through the stretch.”

TRAINER QUOTES

JERRY HOLLENDORFER, DREAM NETTIE, WINNER: “We thought that Jeff’s horse (Jeff Mullins, Ace of Aces) had the speed and we were trying to be close, either second or third, but we ended up second, so it worked out for a change. You can’t take too much hold of this horse. We have an improving horse and I think the more distance, the better he looks.”

NOTES: The winning owners are William de Burgh of Rancho Santa Fe, Jerry Hollendorfer of Richmond, CA and George Todaro of Seattle.
