CRYSTAL WATER STAKES QUOTES

JOCKEY QUOTES

RAFAEL BEJARANO, HOLLADAY ROAD, WINNER: “I knew there was going to be plenty of speed in the race. I got comfortable with my horse, and knew I could be patient a little bit. When I saw the No. 6 horse and the other horse, they tried to soften each other up, so I relaxed and waited a little bit. From the half-mile pole, everybody spread out, so I tried to go to the rail and make a little move, and that was it.”

TRAINER QUOTES

JULIO CANANI, HOLLADAY ROAD, WINNER: “I’m too old to be nervous. I saw speed and told him (Rafael Bejarano) to let him sit comfortable and at the half mile pole ask him a little bit. I knew he would do the job.”

NOTES: The winning owners are Gary and Wendy Broad of Palm Desert.
