JULIEN LEPAROUX, CHIPS ALL IN, WINNER: “He broke pretty good, and I tried to put him in the race. And then I just tried to be clear and not have any traffic. I put him where he was clear, and he put me there easy. I thought I felt someone coming on the outside, and he went on. He loves this track and loves this distance.
“He ran great at Del Mar. We knew that he liked the distance here, so we’re happy to be back here.”
GARRETT GOMEZ, BOAT TRIP, SECOND: “He’s run down the hill before but when we hit the dirt he jumped a little and I lost ground.
