FLAVIEN PRAT, BIG SWEEP, WINNER: “She ran really well. She settled nicely behind the speed and she handled the kick-back like a pro. She’s got a lot of heart.”
MARIO GUTIERREZ, ROOKIE MISTAKE, SECOND: “He ran his heart out. I knew that filly was coming and he tried so hard. I might’ve moved a little too soon.”
MARK GLATT, BIG SWEEP, WINNER: “The race unfolded totally different than we thought. We didn’t expect to be that far back, but she handled the dirt in her face very well. To be able to show a totally different dimension in only her second start, is pretty amazing. We did nominate to both stakes (including the Evening Jewel versus fillies) and it looks like we made a good decision. We’ll see where we go from here.”
