GRADE III, $200,000 ROBERT B. LEWIS STAKES QUOTES
FLAVIEN PRAT, NYSOS, WINNER: “He’s very relaxed, he has a good mind. The pace was pretty hot, so it was good, I gave him a chance and he took the dirt very well. When I called on him, he responded really well.”
BOB BAFFERT, NYSOS, WINNER: “He stumbled a bit leaving there, but he was in a good spot. I knew it was going to be a hot pace. My other horse (Wine Me Up) really hung in there well. Prat rode him with a lot of confidence, he knows the horse well. I love the fact that he has speed and he proved he can do two turns. He has a great mind. He is a really good colt. You can just sit there and push the button at any time. It makes it so much easier for the riders, but I still get a little nervous.
“I liked the way my other horse was running because I thought he was going to run a big race today. Deep down inside I thought if (Nysos) is a good horse he’s going to get it done, and he did.”
NOTES: The winning owner is Baoma Corp.
