ARCADIA HANDICAP QUOTES, SATURDAY, APRIL 4TH, 2009

JOCKEY QUOTES

TYLER BAZE, DIXIE CHATTER, WINNER: “It was perfect. We tried to sit down the whole way, went around a tired horse at the 3/8 pole, just sat on the rail and really waited to see how it was going to unfold in front me. It got tight for a few strides but we just waited a little longer with him.”
“The last couple of races he gives me the whole bit but not quite enough. Today he gave me 100 percent. Richard did an awesome job having him ready for this and it’s nice to get a win for Richard. You just want to get a win just so the trainer has a little confidence in you. I’m really happy to get the Arcadia.”

TRAINER QUOTES

RICHARD MANDELLA, DIXIE CHATTER, WINNER: “It’s just nice to win one with him. He’s been trying so hard for so long. He got beat a half a length, three quarters of a length and it’s nice to finally win with him.”

NOTES: The winning owners are Herman Sarkowsky of Seattle, and Martin and Pam Wygod of Rancho Santa Fe.
