JOEL ROSARIO, QAHIRA, WINNER: “It looked like she came out of there fine and it looked like those couple of horses (Acting Out and Mo See Cal) wanted to go ahead and go on with the speed, so I just sat right behind them a little bit and let her be happy with where she was. She ran really well.”
“Thanks to (Bob) Baffert for the opportunity and thank God for everything.”
JIM BARNES, ASSISTANT TO BOB BAFFERT, QAHIRA, WINNER: “It went according to plan. Bob said to tell Joel to just come out of there and try to get a good position. The way it worked out, those two fillies (Acting Out and Mo See Cal) went and we were able to get outside of them. At the five sixteenths, Joel jumped on ’em and she was pretty impressive. Joel gave her a perfect ride..”
