IRISH O’BRIEN STAKES QUOTES-SUNDAY, MARCH 31, 2019

JOCKEY QUOTES  

JOEL ROSARIO, GYPSY BLU, WINNER: “I just arrived a few hours ago (from Dubai) and I’m a little tired but I feel better now that we have a win. I thought it was going to be a little bit closer but she took her time, she’s a runner when she sees a horse in front she’s going to come after it and get it at the end. I’d like to thank Mark (Glatt) for always putting me on a lot of horses, I appreciate it. I leave tomorrow for Keeneland, but I will be back on Santa Anita Derby Day.”

TRAINER QUOTES

MARK GLATT, GYPSY BLU, WINNER: “She was one for one on the turf and I was really impressed with her turf race prior to the time that I had claimed her, I had another ‘Papa Clem’ that I put on the turf, a mare named Cordiality, that we did really well with when we put her on the grass and now this filly is four for four and that was pretty much the angle I was looking at.”

NOTES: The winning owners are Jim Hailey and Philip Wood
