MIKE SMITH, AWESOME BABY, WINNER: “Off her first out, it looked like she would have run better her next two starts. Maybe she just bounced off that first race, or tailed off for some odd reason, I don’t know. Today though, she ran dynamite. She broke really well, was well in hand until I needed to ask her and I just showed her the whip and she kept running. It was a great race out of her today.”
RAFAEL BEJARANO, TASTE LIKE CANDY, SECOND: “The post position killed us today. I wish I could have an outside post.
