JOE TALAMO, NASHOBA’S GOLD, WINNER: “We just had a perfect trip. I had a lot of horse. I just wanted to keep her out of any trouble. I kept her three or four wide and everything worked out great and we were able to turn the tables today. She is a very special animal.”

GARY STEVENS, DIVERSY HARBOR, SECOND: “Joe (Talamo) ran a really great race. My horse has been great. I really thought I had made a good tactical move going into the turn, but I got through too late. It might have been different if I had decided to go wide. You really have two super fillies in these two horses.”


CARLA GAINES, NASHOBA’S GOLD, WINNER: “My filly’s just maturing. She’s learning, but it was a great race and a great ride. I’m so excited.”

AIMEE DOLLASE, DIVERSY HARBOR, SECOND: “The pace really killed us. It was so slow and she was far behind. She is young, she is learning. We know we have a nice filly.”

NOTES: Winning owner/breeder Warren Williamson is from Pasadena.
