MEGAHERTZ STAKES QUOTES

JOCKEY QUOTES

JOE TALAMO, VAMO A GALUPIAR, WINNER: “That’s a nice mare. I had a great trip. She’s got a tremendous turn of foot. We just stayed on the rail all the way everything opened up. When she switched leads, she just exploded.”

TRAINER QUOTES

NEIL DRYSDALE, VAMO A GALUPIAR, WINNER: “She bruised something behind (explaining her absence of more than eight months). It wasn’t any big deal. She just needed time . . . It looks like she’s ready to go now. She got tired (in her first U.S. start in the Grade III Wilshire last April 30) and she wasn’t quite right. Now she’s right.
“I just told Joe (Talamo) to let her get comfortable and don’t lose contact.”

NOTES: Winning owner Robert S. Evans is from Stamford, Conn.
