TIAGO PEREIRA, LOVE A HONEYBADGER, WINNER: “She’s a nice filly. I won a couple on her when Brian Koriner had her and I want to thank Pete for staying with me today. Five eighths is a good distance for her. We had a good break, she relaxed and she was full of run with me.”
PETER MILLER, LOVE A HONEYBADGER, WINNER: “I felt a little more confident when it came off the grass. We thought she’d like the grass, but we know she likes the dirt.
“She’s a really fast filly and tries hard every time. She’s best when she can get the lead and it looked like we were the fastest in the race.
“Tiago is four for five with this filly so he really has the key to her. He gave her an excellent ride. He got the lead, got her over to the rail and got her to relax. She kicked home so I was very pleased with the ride.
“We’ll have to see what’s in the next book and then I’ll decide if turf or dirt is up next.”
NOTES: The winning owner is Gary Hartunian of Rockingham Ranch.
