SPEAKEASY STAKES QUOTES – SATURDAY, OCT. 6, 2018

JOCKEY QUOTES

 

TIAGO PEREIRA, ITS GONNA HURT, WINNER: “My horse broke good and his last work was very good, so when he took the lead I just let him go and he had enough left to hold them off. I chirped to him when I wanted more and he gave it to me.”

 

GARY STEVENS, MAE NEVER NO, THIRD AS 6-5 FAVORITE:  “She tired herself out going to the gate today. She never relaxed . . . I’d like to ride her back right now, that she’s relaxed.”

 

TRAINER QUOTES

 

BRIAN KORINER, ITS GONNA HURT, WINNER: “I told him (Tiago Pereira) he didn’t have to be (in front). I said you can lay right behind them. He didn’t break on top, but the horse dragged him right up there. There was nothing he could. The horse was just way quicker than they were. He went 44 flat but he was draggin’ him all the way.”

Asked if he would look at the Breeders’ Cup (Turf Sprint): “I don’t know. We’ll see. It wasn’t really my intention to run in this race. It was the only place to run for a horse that broke his maiden for 80 (thousand dollars).”
