Jockey Quotes

JOEL ROSARIO, WELL MONIED, Winner: “After her last two wins I had a lot of confidence. They were going fast up front and I could see everything from where I was. I had to ask her to run before the three-eighths pole so we wouldn’t get caught too wide. She was running real comfortably at the top of the stretch and I had a lot of horse left.”

RAFAEL BEJARANO, ACTING LADY, Second: “The winner was definitely the best horse in the race. My filly tried real hard, but the only way she could have won is if the winner got in trouble. I was trying to follow the leader and I thought I had her but he (Rosario) rode a smart race and beat me with the best horse.”

Trainer Quotes

HOWARD ZUCKER, WELL MONIED, Winner: “She’s a really honest filly. I don’t know that there’s a prettier mover on the lawn in this division. Who’s going to the American Oaks? I don’t know that I’m going. It’s not so much who’s going, but I have to see how my filly is. She’s kind of a thin type. She doesn’t hold her weight in between. I’ve been running her once a month and if I have to I’ll fatten her up a little bit. She seemed to take this like it was nothing. She wasn’t even blowing when she got back. I love it. She’s perhaps the best-acting horse I’ve ever had in my barn. She’s just so placid and mellow and aims to please all the time. She’s a pleasure to train. I always admired that filly Wait a While and I thought maybe this was my Wait a While. I’ve been waiting a while to get one, so here we are.”
