ZUMA BEACH STAKES QUOTES – MONDAY, OCT. 8, 2018

JOCKEY QUOTES

 

GARY STEVENS, KING OF SPEED, WINNER:  “He’s a big 2-year-old, no question.  He’s grown into a man from a boy in his last two races.  When I first started getting on him, I thought he could be my Futurity horse and I still think he’ll run well on dirt as well.  Now that he’s gone two turns a few times and he’s gotten the taste of settling and passing horses, he’s really moved forward.  In his last two races, he’s improved so much.  I worked him after his last race and I told Jeff, ‘He’s five lengths better than he was when he won that stake (one mile Del Mar Juvenile Turf on Sept. 2).'”

 

TRAINER QUOTES

 

JEFF BONDE, TRAINER, KING OF SPEED:  “He’s getting better every time he goes out there.  Today, Gary sat, waited and this colt did everything right.  It couldn’t have worked out any better.”

 

NOTES: The winning owner is David Del Secco of Hayward, CA.
