JORGE VELEZ, WARREN’S SHOWTIME, WINNER: “She’s got a really good late kick. She likes to run inside, so it makes it easier to save ground. When I came here, my agent (Nelson Arroyo, Jr.) had me look at lot of tapes of Laffit Pincay and it’s helped me. Craig (Lewis) has been so great to me, he’s put me on so many of his horses. This is my biggest win and I feel really happy to have the opportunity.”
CRAIG LEWIS, WARREN’S SHOWTIME, WINNER: “She’s really a nice filly. She’s got a terrific turn of foot and it helped her today. It got a little tight around the turn, but the jock waited and the rail opened up and we got through. She had a fever a little while back and we had to back off for a while. I’m hopeful that we haven’t got to the bottom of her potential yet. She has done a lot to date.
“This sire (Clubhouse Ride) has kept me alive. We are reaping the benefits of the offspring. He is wonderful for California we couldn’t be more excited about the future with him.”
“Sally and Ben are great owners and have been great friends of mine so I’m very happy to win, especially for them.
SALLY WARREN, WARREN’S SHOWTIME, WINNER:” it is wonderful, we are so grateful. We are so happy to have Craig and for Clubhouse Ride it is so exciting and good for California. We are coming in from Vegas and going home with a trophy and the money.”
BEN WARREN, WARREN’S SHOWTIME, WINNER: “Clubhouse Ride raced with our horse and won quite a bit of money and we were very close with Craig so we bred them and we have nine more ‘Clubhouse’ babies.
“We are getting better mares. We had 800 horses before but they were not very good now were getting better stuff.”
NOTES: The winning owners are Ben & Sally Warren who reside in Las Vegas, Nevada.
