Jockey Quotes

TYLER BAZE, TRAVESURA, Winner: “I wasn’t really expecting to be on the lead. If they let me go easy, I’m going to take it. The plan was to lay third or fourth. I really thought she could route after her last race. I knew she would be tough to beat today. This is a nice filly. Bigger and better things, maybe.”

GARRETT GOMEZ, PUSSYCAT LIPS, Second: “I just couldn’t get any kind of running room. I wound her up but never was able to kick her into gear. I never hit her. She traveled well, she’s a beautiful moving filly. She’s not real big but covers a lot of ground.”

JULIEN LEPAROUX, PREMIER STEPS, Sixth: “We got bumped pretty bad after the start and she never picked up the bit. The first part of the race, I had nothing, but she finished pretty well in the stretch. I think she’s a little green. I think she’ll be OK.”

Trainer Quotes

JEFF MULLINS, TRAVESURA, Winner: ‘I started thinking about this race after her last race (a 3 ¾ length maiden win going about 6 ½ furlongs in her turf debut Oct. 7 at Santa Anita). There really wasn’t anything else for her. It was our only option. My only worry was the distance. I know she can run and I knew she’d like the grass, it just took forever to get her there.”
