CITY OF HOPE MILE STAKES QUOTES

 

JOCKEY QUOTES

 

JOE TALAMO, BIG BANE THEORY, WINNER: “We had a perfect trip. I was able to save ground. They were flying up front, goin’ pretty quick which was perfect for us. I saw Soi Phet drifting out on the (far) turn a bit and I had to weave us through a bit of traffic that last part, but I got him out and then he did the rest.”

 

 

TRAINER QUOTES

 

CARLA GAINES, BIG BANE THEORY, WINNER: “He’s such an easy horse to train. He’s very, very good-minded, easy to train. I didn’t think they were going that slow. They picked it up pretty good. They were going 45. I was just thinking to myself I hope Joe (Talamo) sits, because they were going to come back to him. He saved ground. He rode him so beautifully.”
