TYLER BAZE, SIRCAT SALLY, WINNER: “I had a beautiful trip. Mr. Hollendorfer and I talked before about the speed in the race and he left it up to me. She pulled me to the lead. I just let her break and find her own stride. She loved it. She was comfortable out there and had no problems sitting second. It was a fun ride.”
JERRY HOLLENDORFER, SIRCAT SALLY, WINNER: “That was the question, whether she would do that or not (run well on turf), and she did it I think in pretty nice fashion. I was very pleased the way she rated off the pace, and showed good enough speed to get up and be tactical. That was very beautiful, for me.”
Hollendorfer added he had “no thoughts yet” on her next race.
JOE TURNER, SIRCAT SALLY, WINNER: “This is special. Three different riders, three different wins, three different tracks and two different surfaces . . . what more could you ask for?
“I still have the dam and people from the Square Eddie camp are very anxious to see the baby. She’s in foal to him now.
“I could breed back to Surf Cat, too, she’s doing so well with him. I was going to try to get her to Vronsky but I’m undecided. I’ve known Bruce Headley for many, many years so I may lean his way (and breed to Surf Cat).”
NOTES: Winning owner Joe Turner is from Fresno.
