JOCKEY QUOTES

JOEL ROSARIO, COMPETITIONOFIDEAS, WINNER: “She broke well, we saved ground, and we took one shot.

“I thought we would be closer but everybody wanted their spot so I just let her settle.

“I always have to thank everybody for giving me the chance to ride here again and I really appreciate everybody. My plan for 2019 is just to see how it goes and go from there. We’ll see what happens.”

TYLER BAZE, K P PERGOLISCIOUS, SECOND:  “She’s a really nice horse.  This is what she wants…a mile and a quarter, a mile and a half.”

TRAINER QUOTES
