GOLDIKOVA STAKES QUOTES – SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2018

JOCKEY QUOTES

 

FLAVIAN PRAT, VASILIKA, WINNER: “She’s so professional, she probably knows where the wire is better than me. I was a little concerned about the rail, but we let everyone go and she was very comfortable just outside another horse going into the first turn and I was feeling good. As you saw, she’s got a really good turn of foot.”

 

TRAINER QUOTES

 

JERRY HOLLENDORFER, VASILIKA, WINNER: “I was worried about her getting trapped on the rail, but fortunately, Flavien had her in a good spot the whole way. He saved ground around the first turn, then when she was ready to go he got through and rode a beautiful race, maybe his best race yet on her. We’ll look for something at Del Mar for her (likely the Grade I, $300,000 Matriarch at a mile on turf Dec. 2).”

 

VLADIMIR CERIN, FAHAN MURA, SECOND:  “I’m really proud of her. Today was her best race. She was facing some really good mares today and with her pedigree, she’s by English Channel, out of a Giant’s Causeway mare, she’s going to keep getting better at age five. She went real fast and she got run down by a really good filly.”
