JOE HERNANDEZ STAKES QUOTES
COREY NAKATANI, REGALLY READY, WINNER: “Scotty (Blasi) is pretty sharp and Steve (Asmussen) has given us a lot of opportunities to win some races. It’s nice to win a nice little stakes with this horse. He’s done things right and Scott was very confident in his ability to control the race. I pretty much had him in hand. I just made sure to get him around in good order, set him down, and he kicked home.”
SCOTT BLASI, ASSISTANT TO STEVE ASMUSSEN, REGALLY READY, WINNER: “Actually, this quarter was probably the easiest quarter he’s had at the meet. Before (Feb. 4) it was :21 and change; he went :22 and change (:22.50) today. I told Corey (Nakatani), just care of him the first part and the rest of it, he’ll take care of.”
NOTES: The winning owner is Tom Lutt of Lexington, Ky., who races as Vinery Stables, LLC.
