SUMMERTIME OAKS STAKES QUOTES – SATURDAY, JUNE 16, 2018

JOCKEY QUOTES

 

KENT DESORMEAUX, OLLIE’S CANDY, WINNER: “Well I’ve worked her a few times and the way she’s been working told me that she was ready. At the quarter pole I knew I had a battle in front of me.

“She sprinted (home) there and she was able to hold it.”

 

TRAINER QUOTES

           

            BILLY MOREY, WINNING TRAINER OF OLLIE’S CANDY:  “Looking forward, through the rest of the year, all the big races for 3-year-old fillies are going a route of ground, so we decided to try it today.  Kent and I have been lucky together.  He’s ridden the three biggest winners in my life, this one being one of them.  This filly handled everything well today.  She was calm at the barn when we brought her over and her ears went up when we put the bridle on her…She was great saddling and all the way through the paddock.”

 

            PAUL EGGERT, OWNER, OLLIE’S CANDY, WINNER: “We’re all very excited. Bill has done a great job with the filly. We knew she was game but I didn’t know she was going to be a graded stakes winner, but she is now.

“Her works have been excellent and she’s training well so we were expecting here to do well. We were confident, we weren’t assuming anything but we were hopeful.”
