Jockey Quotes

OMAR BERRIO, FANTASY FREE, Winner: “He’s been feeling real good in the morning and training well, but I actually liked the other horse (Rush With Thunder) more than mine. Avila told me to stay inside the whole way because this horse likes to run on the rail. It worked out great.”

Trainer Quotes

A.C. AVILA, FANTASY FREE, Winner: “It’s been a great year. I used to have a 6-8 horse stable and now it’s up to 22. They were asking me about (Rush With) Thunder before the race, but I was telling everyone that the other horse is cheap, but he’s at the top of his game. From December to now he’s gained something like 60 pounds. I told Omar (Berrio) that I thought he was going to beat `Thunder today, but he didn’t think so. I told the owners of Rush With Thunder that if you want to go, let’s go, but Fantasy Free’s going to beat you.”

NOTES: The win was the second in six starts for Fantasy Free since he was claimed by Avila for owner Roddy Valente for $25,000 last Dec. 12 at Hollywood Park…Liberian Freighter, the defending champion in the Tiznow and the 2-1 favorite, faded to sixth after being part of the pace….Runner-up Bestdressed finished third in last year’s Tiznow.
