DESERT STORMER STAKES QUOTES-SUNDAY, MAY 19, 2019

JOCKEY QUOTES

GEOVANNI FRANCO, DANUSKA’S MY GIRL, WINNER:  “She’s been improving every time I’ve gotten on her. Jerry said ‘You’re on the fastest horse, just get her out of the gate and she’ll do the rest. She’s got a big heart and she ran really good.”

TRAINER QUOTES

JERRY HOLLENDORFER, DANUSKA’S MY GIRL, WINNER: “Geovanni rides her really good, no question. She’s been training very well and she’s put on a lot of weight, we have given her plenty of time between races and we think she’s doing well that way.  Some horses just don’t ever get a chance to get to be an older horse, but she did and she’s doing well. We just hope to keep her going. We’re probably going to look at that race at Los Alamitos, the Great Lady M (Grade II, six furlongs on July 6, 2019), which is a nice race over there, so we would like to run there if we could.”

GARY SHERLOCK, TRAINER OF SHOW IT N MOE IT, SECOND:  “She tries every time.  Second in a Grade III with a Cal-bred, not bad. We’re probably run next in the Great Lady M at Los Alamitos (Grade II, six furlongs on July 6). It looks like we’ll be running in open company from now on.”

NOTES: The winning owner is Bad Boy Racing, LLC.
