DESERT STORMER STAKES QUOTES-SUNDAY, MAY 17, 2020

JOCKEY QUOTES
FLAVIEN PRAT, BELLAFINA, WINNER: “This is pretty cool. She broke well and she put me in a good spot and we had those two fillies (Fighting Mad and Artistic Diva) as a target.  At the quarter pole, we angled out and she did the rest.  It’s great to be back home with this filly, she loves it here.  I won five in one day at Del Mar last summer, but never here at Santa Anita. Hopefully, I’m not done yet.”
TRAINER QUOTES 
SIMON CALLAGHAN, BELLAFINA, WINNER: “It unfolded pretty much as we expected. We had decent speed and Flavien had her in a great position to stalk and gave us a really good performance. It shows how much she loves Santa Anita and we’re glad to get her back in the Winner’s Circle.”
NOTES: The winning owners are Kaleem Shah, Inc, Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith.
