SANTA BARBARA HANDICAP QUOTES
BRICE BLANC, CAPITAL PLAN, WINNER: “Jerry (Hollendorfer) told me to play it by ear. On paper, it looked like the one (Hard Seven) and the three (Glowing Spirit) were going to be the speed of the race. I didn’t know what Joel’s (Rosario) horse was going to do on the outside, and I was kind of waiting to see what he would do. When everybody looked for cover on the front side I kind of just let my filly lope along and I just got a beautiful spot. I felt the momentum from there and I asked her to pick it up. She really responded and took off the last three-sixteenths.
RAFAEL BEJARANO, CAMBINA, SECOND: “Good trip. She ran beautiful and was in perfect position. The winner never had any pressure. Everyone took a hold and let the four go easy. I couldn’t beat her the way she was on the lead.”
JERRY HOLLENDORFER, CAPITAL PLAN, WINNER: “She came home well. It was a perfect ride by Brice Blanc. We’re looking at a couple different options for her next race, and one of them is in New York.
NEIL DRYSDALE, VAMO A GALUPIAR, SIXTH (BEATEN 2-1 FAVORITE): “The ground was too firm.”
NOTES: The winning owners are Mark DeDomenico of Bellevue, Washington and Jerry Hollendorfer of Point Richmond, California.
