SENSATIONAL STAR STAKES QUOTES-SUNDAY, MARCH 22, 2020

JOCKEY QUOTES

DRAYDEN VAN DYKE, LIEUTENANT DAN, WINNER: “It set up perfect for him today. Steve had him sharp and ready. My main concern was getting him to switch to his right lead when we turned for home. Once he did, yes, I was pretty confident we’d catch that mare.”

TRAINER QUOTES

STEVE MIYADI, LIEUTENANT DAN, WINNER: “The race set up well for him, no question. This horse is finally growing into his frame. We gave him a little time off and he’s picked up some weight, which he needed because he’s been so light. Someday, he’s gonna have to route. He sprints like he’ll route and he routes like he’ll sprint.”

NOTES: The winning owner/breeder is Nick Alexander who resides in Los Angeles.
