LOUIS R. ROWAN STAKES QUOTES
JOEL ROSARIO, HOME SWEET ASPEN, WINNER: “It was easy because she went to the lead, and that’s how she likes to run. I had to keep her working coming for home. A couple horses started coming a little bit, but she started kicking away. There were some tough horses in here.”
LARRY BENAVIDEZ, ASSISTANT TO JOHN SADLER, HOME SWEET ASPEN, WINNER: ‘’She’s trained well since Del Mar. She’s put on weight ; she’s just thriving right now. I told him (Joel Rosario) to lay just outside like second or third and not to be too far off the pace, but when she made a :45 and two lead, I said it’s over. She’s got a pretty bright future.’’
NOTES: The winning owner/breeder is Jenny Craig of the Craig Family Trust of Rancho Santa Fe.
