EVENING JEWEL STAKES QUOTES – SATURDAY APRIL 9, 2016

JOCKEY QUOTES

 

FLAVIEN PRAT, PACIFIC HEAT, WINNER: “I prefer a fair track. She wasn’t really comfortable on this sloppy track today but she has so much talent that didn’t even matter. Her talent made all the difference.”

 

TRAINER QUOTES

 

JOE CIAGLIA, PACIFIC HEAT, WINNER: “She won at Del Mar, she won on the grass, she won the dirt, she won going short, she won going long – so she’s very versatile. She’s got a lot of talent. We might wait two months and go to the Acorn Stakes. Before Del Mar starts and we go back to turf, the Acorn is a definite possibility. It’s a nice progression.”

 

“I was a little nervous about the condition of the track today, and she set some fast early fractions, and they were coming off the pace later in the day, but Flavien did a great job, and we got it done.”

 

NOTES: The winning owners are Sharon Alesia of Carlsbad; Mike Burns; and Joe Ciaglia of Upland.
