SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO STAKES QUOTES

JOCKEY QUOTES

RAFAEL BEJARANO, BOURBON BAY, WINNER: “It looked like a couple of horses would show speed and that’s what happened. I tried to keep my horse relaxed down the hill and into the first (Club House) turn. At the half-mile, Martin Garcia moved with his horse (Skellytown) and so I decided to follow him. He moved on the rail and kept my horse outside because I didn’t want to get him stopped. I knew my horse would finish strong, but he got a little tired at the wire.”

TRAINER QUOTES

NEIL DRYSDALE, BOURBON BAY, Winner: “He’s going to be getting a rest. One mile and three-quarters was stretching it a bit. We’re probably going to have a tired horse. He (Rafael Bejarano) gave him a picture perfect ride.”

NOTES: The winning owners are David and Jill Heerensberger of Bellevue, Washington.
