YELLOW RIBBON STAKES QUOTES

JOCKEY QUOTES

JOEL ROSARIO, DUBAWI HEIGHTS, WINNER: “I don’t think I’ve ever won three Grade Is in one day. When you’re in a race you never know what can happen. She gives you everything she has and she tries very hard. Every time she runs she gets better. Before, you had to ask her to be close to the pace and now, she does it on her own.”

TRAINER QUOTES

SIMON CALLAGHAN, DUBAWI HEIGHTS, WINNER: “The race really went to plan. There didn’t look to be too much speed in the race, and she’s the sort of filly that you can tactically put her anywhere – she can sit on the pace, or she can rate just in behind. It’s a perfect result, and we’re very happy.”

“I think we’ll probably head toward the Breeders’ Cup. She’s improved with every race, and she’ll go there I’m sure with a great chance. The form stacks up good. It makes sense, I think, to go there.”

JOHN SADLER, COZI ROSIE, SECOND: “Ran great. We got stopped on the turn a little bit and the pace was slow but she finished very fast so we thought she ran very well.

On going to the Breeders’ Cup: “I hope so. I think so as long as she comes out of it good.”

NOTES: The winning owners are Neville Callaghan of Newmarket, England, Clodagh McStay of County Kildaire, Ireland, and M.V. Magnier of Tipperary, Ireland.
