LA CANADA STAKES QUOTES-SATURDAY, JAN. 9, 2021

JOCKEY QUOTES

 

            UMBERTO RISPOLI, SANENUS, WINNER: “I’ve been on her several times in the morning.  I knew she was a very good filly.  Today, I asked her a bit at the half mile pole and she responded well.  At the top of the stretch, she was looking around and I was just hoping she was going to stay focused.  She finished well and I think she has more there.”

TRAINER QUOTES

 

        MICHAEL McCARTHY, SANENUS, WINNER: “Umberto did a great job, he had to niggle a little bit at her to kind of keep her in the game around the first turn. I thought she was in a great position up the backside and she went up to engage those fillies leaving the half mile pole.  At the quarter, she had her ears up and I love the way she opened up. The La Canada has a great history and a lot of really nice mares have won this race over the years and this is a nice race to have on her resume.”

 

NOTES: The winning owner is Matriarca.
