MARTIN GARCIA, MAY DAY ROSE, Winner: “When she sprinted she just got to the lead and kept going the same pace. She was a little bit rank, like babies usually are, because they don’t know how to run. We’ve been making her finish in the mornings and look at the results today. I think she’s always wanted a distance. She’s got a really long stride. I think she’s going to be a good filly. From five and one-half furlongs to go a mile and one-sixteenth is really a big difference. But you know Bob Baffert, he’s such a class trainer and he knows what he’s doing.”
MIKE MARLOW (Assistant Trainer), MAY DAY ROSE, Winner: “That was pretty impressive. Twenty-two and change first quarter and she just kept cruising. She didn’t get too much pressure, but she was going a pretty good pace. And she was doing it easy. She’s quick, and she can carry it, that’s a good thing now. She’s a runner, we know that.”
