JOE TALAMO, TRIBAL SPY, WINNER: “We had a perfect trip. I was real pleased to see those two fillies on the lead (favored Biorhythm and Sky High Gal) goin’ head and head. They were going pretty quick. So we got a perfect trip. Turning for home I took her to the outside and she pretty much did the rest.”

DRAYDEN VAN DYKE, BIORHYTHM, FOURTH: “She felt fine. I just went too fast. Once I crossed the dirt I thought we were home free but then I heard Trevor say she was struggling and I saw them coming at me. I thought I had it, but I went too fast.”


ADAM KITCHINGMAN, TRIBAL SPY, WINNER: “I let Joe (Talamo) ride his race. He did whatever he wanted to do. She loves this course. Tribal Rules are doing great on the grass right now and she’s a gutsy little filly. We’ll probably come back in that 6 ½ down the hill on May 25 ($75,000 Mizdirection Stakes). We’ll rest her up a little bit . . . let her go swim for a couple weeks and then freshen her up.”

PAUL BOGHOSSIAN, PART OWNER, TRIBAL SKY: “This is what owners look for. We own (California-based stallion) Richard’s Kid, too, so we’re going to give her some time and make a decision on breeding her either this year or next year. This is great. She’s perfect now.”

NOTES: The winning owners are Paul Hratch Boghossian, Hratch Paul Boghossian and Chris Boghossian of North Hollywood, who race as Triple B Farms.
