SAN ANTONIO HANDICAP QUOTES
GARRETT GOMEZ, RICHARD’S KID, WINNER: “I stayed down inside with him because there wasn’t a whole lot I could do about it. Nobody was really stopping today, so the only way we were going to overcome that was to save ground. He’s got a great kick.”
BOB BAFFERT, RICHARD’S KID, WINNER: “They were going slow and he was getting a little rank . . . He was way back there. The pace was the deciding factor and you can’t really change his style. Turning for home I thought, ‘Boy, they’re going so slow,’ and I couldn’t see him. I heard (wife) Jill yelling for him . . . but he was on the rail and he just shot through there.”
NOTES: Baffert plans to run Richard’s Kid in the Dubai World Cup on March 27. The winning owner is Sheikh Rashid bin Mohammed al Maktoum of Dubai who races as Zabeel Racing Int. Corp.
