THE SIR BEAUFORT STAKES
JOEL ROSARIO, SIDNEY’S CANDY, WINNER: “He’s a really good horse and he likes to run free and easy. Even though he went fast fractions, he just kept going. When we went to the first turn, I could hear Trevor (Denman) say we made an easy lead. The fractions were fast and he maybe got a little bit tired at the end. He’s a good horse and he’s improved every time he runs.”
LARRY BENAVIDEZ, ASSISTANT TO JOHN SADLER, SIDNEY’S CANDY, WINNER: “I told Joel don’t get cute. Johnny (Sadler) said, ‘just go to the front. You’re on the best horse.’ It’s pretty to watch down the lane isn’t it? He can do it all (dirt, turf, synthetic). We’re blessed during the holiday season.”
NOTES: The winning owner is Jenny Craig of the Craig Family Trust.
