JOCKEY QUOTES

JOEL ROSARIO, DUBAWI HEIGHTS, WINNER: “I don’t think I’ve ever won three Grade Is in one day. When you’re in a race you never know what can happen. She gives you everything she has and she tries very hard. Every time she runs she gets better. Before, you had to ask her to be close to the pace and now, she does it on her own.”

JOCKEY QUOTES

GARRETT GOMEZ, BROKEN DREAMS, WINNER: “It’s good to start off on a winning note, especially in a stakes race. Very seldom do we get a stakes race so early in the day, on top of that having it be my first mount of the meet. Anytime you win a race here at Santa Anita it’s always fun. I thought Unzip Me would be out there and a couple of them might put some pressure on her.

JOCKEY QUOTES

MIKE SMITH, REGALLY READY, WINNER: “They (Team Asmussen) told me to just stay out of his way. This was my first time on him, but I’ve been chasing him, so it’s nice to be on his back. I knew the two outside horses (Victory Pete and Compari) had been away a while, so I was hoping I could shake loose of them and get a little breather. When we came to the dirt, they both fell back and that gave me the break I needed. My horse relaxed a bit and that was the difference.”

JOCKEY QUOTES

PATRICK VALENZUELA, SEPARATE FOREST, WINNER: “This filly loves this hillside course. I knew she (Unzip Me) was right behind me and I had to get away from her before we crossed the dirt. I had enough filly under me to get that done.”

JOCKEY QUOTES

MARTIN GARCIA, LIBERIAN FREIGHTER, WINNER: “We were the only speed in the race today, so when I broke I let him run out of there on his own and let him settle into stride. When I asked him to run, he took off. I thought he beat a really good field today.”
