Jockey Quotes

MARTIN GARCIA, SOUTHERN FIREBALL, Winner through dq: “I told the stewards that I had a place to go on the inside and that other horse came in and intimidated my filly really bad. After that, I took her outside and she still ran second. She was definitely the best horse. If I would have gotten through, she would have won easily.”

JOEL ROSARIO, REPO, Second: “I was in front of that other filly. She didn’t have anywhere to go. I thought I had her in tight but I didn’t interfere with her. When you pass somebody from the inside you should make sure you’re clear.”

Trainer Quotes

LEANDRO MORO (Assistant trainer to Doug O’Neill), SOUTHERN FIREBALL and REPO, Winner and Second: “It’s very difficult when there’s an inquiry between your own two horses because there’s two different parties involved. One’s going to be happy and the other’s going to be unhappy. For a trainer or an assistant trainer it’s a little uncomfortable. It’s better when you finish one-two without incident. I thought the disqualification was a very tough call for the stewards.”
