SAN LUIS REY STAKES QUOTES – SATURDAY MARCH 24, 2018

JOCKEY QUOTES

 

            TYLER BAZE, ITSINTHEPOST, WINNER:  “I’ve been getting on him a long time and this is a really special horse.  The guys at the barn have made this happen.  They’ve worked with him and helped him develop, they deserve all the credit.  The only instructions Jeff gave me today were to try and see if we could stalk (the pace) on the outside and it worked out great.  When Nakatani (aboard Aquaphobia) kind of went on with it, I was able to slide right out turning down the backside and it worked out great.  Very few horses that you get on really want to win.  This horse does, every time.  I think he’s my all-time best horse now, for money-won…He has the will to win.”

 

 

 

TRAINER QUOTES

 

            JEFF MULLINS, ITSINTHEPOST, WINNER:  “I’ve had some good turf horses, but some of them, they’ll kinda tail off at some point.  Not this horse, he’s just solid every time.  With this horse, the further, the better.”

 

OWNER QUOTES

 

TIM COHEN, WHOSE FAMILY RUNS AS RED BARON’S BARN, OWNER OF ITSINTHEPOST:  “When Tyler was able to get to the outside turning down the backstretch, that was the whole key.  You know how you’re watching a race and you wish you could talk to the jockey?  I was saying, ‘Tyler, get outside,’ and he did!”
