TIAGO PEREIRA, SKY DIAMONDS, WINNER: “My plan was to let Yuvetsi and Anonymity go because they’re fast and were clearly the speed. But when I saw Show It N Moe It go too, I loved it because that was good for me too.
“I let them all go and was able to easily duck out to the outside. By the three-eighths she was pulling me, ready to go so I let her. I just kept her focused down the lane but she was full of run. It couldn’t have set up better for us.”
JON LINDO, PART OWNER, SKYE DIAMONDS, WINNER: “This is so satisfying, she tries so hard and to be able to get her back in the Winner’s Circe is really incredible. We’ve got her entered in the Fasig-Tipton (mixed) Sale right after the Breeders’ Cup, so we’ll have to talk to everyone and see what we’re going to do. The way everything developed today, it was just perfect. We sent her last time and that was a mistake. Tiago knows her so well and today he let her get into a rhythm and then went after them. Turning for home, I felt really confident because she just wants to beat you. As an owner, that’s an indescribable feeling.”
