Jockey Quotes

MARTIN GARCIA, UNUSUAL SMOKE, Winner: “In his last race he was a little bit rank. Today he was, too. But I’ll tell you something, he’s really tough. He just wants to go and has such a big heart. He’s a little heavy-headed so the more you pull the more he pulls. He’s just a real nice horse and fires every time.”

Trainer Quotes

A.C. AVILA, UNUSUAL SMOKE, Winner: “He’s a good horse. In his last race he got a bad beat. He ran his eyeballs out and just had bad luck. We were expecting the horse to go step-by-step and improve. Every race he has improved a little bit. When I first got him he was a little bit nervous, but now he has started to calm down. I’m going to let him settle down then I’ll think about what’s next.”
