MARIO GUTIERREZ, HOW ABOUT ZERO, WINNER: “I had a perfect trip. She’s proven that she likes to run down the hill a little bit fresh. It worked perfect. She’s a really good filly. We haven’t gotten a distance yet but I still feel she can run the mile or 1 1/16, too.”
LEANDRO MORA, ASSISTANT TO DOUG O’NEILL, HOW ABOUT ZERO, WINNER: “There was a conversation this morning (about strategy) between, Doug, Mario (Gutierrez) and Mr. Reddam, and things worked out well. She was in a perfect position down the backside and this filly’s been very honest for us. We knew she liked this downhill course, and now she’s two for two.”
NOTES: The winning owners are J. Paul and Zillah Reddam, who were not at Santa Anita today, nor was O’Neill.
