SAN LUIS REY STAKES QUOTES – SATURDAY, MARCH 25, 2017

JOCKEY QUOTES

 

TYLER BAZE, ITSINTHEPOST, WINNER:  “I had four different people tell me this horse couldn’t go a mile and a half.  I’ve that horse (Ashleyluvssugar) run so many times and I know he gets a big heart when he’s able to open up by two or three early, so I wanted to be sure he knew I was there all the way around there.  My horse ran awesome and it’s always great to win for Jeff.”

 

GARY STEVENS, ASHLEYLUVSSUGAR, SECOND:  “I was so happy when we got to the three quarter (pole) it seemed like we were two minute licking ’em.  I wasn’t overly happy when Tyler tied into me on the bottom (Club House) turn, but he got the prize.  This horse, believe it or not, is better off with a target.  He was kind of looking around on the lead today.”

 

 

 

TRAINER QUOTES

 

 

JEFF MULLINS, ITSINTHEPOST, WINNER:  “Tyler rode him just the way we talked about it.  It unfolded just the way I thought it would.  I thought Ashleyluvssugar would go to the lead and I thought Papacoolpapacool and maybe the one (Inordinate) would go and they did.  When ‘Ashley’ started sneaking away, I told Tyler to be right on his heels and he was.”

 

MARK COHEN (RED BARON’S BARN, LLC) WINNING OWNER:  “It’s always nice when you win a race and it’s really nice when you win a big one like this.  My dad (Jed Cohen) has always been really high on this horse, even before he won his second condition allowance.”
