RAMON VAZQUEZ, STONE SILENT, WINNER: “First I’d like to thank the trainer and the owners for the opportunity. I worked her three times in the morning, and I knew she was a nice filly. She broke good and got a good position and she responded really well.
“I wasn’t surprised (to be on the lead) because she’s a first timer and nobody knew that this filly could run.”
JOHN SADLER, STONE SILENT, WINNER: “I think some of the commentators picked up on the fact that she worked 20 and two in the sale, so she’s very quick. We were hoping that she went through and could run early because I knew she had a ton of speed. Ramon was good, he came out and worked her three times and knew her. We hadn’t really pressed her hard in the morning, we just got her fit because we knew the speed was in there.
“She’ll go into the stake program for two-year-old fillies at Del Mar. We have a couple of other ones coming along behind her, so it ‘s good to have the first one out and get one under our belt.”
