JOEL ROSARIO, NECESSARY EVIL, Winner: “Boy is she fast. She won nicely first time but I think she did even better today. She’s a very nice filly. At the top of the stretch she changed leads perfectly. In fact she does everything perfect.”
JOSEPH TALAMO, ZIP QUIK, Second: “I think he’s going to develop into a nice horse. He did everything right for only his third start. When he broke his maiden he was up close because there really was no pace. Today he came from out of it, which is really more his style. He could be a Del Mar Futurity-type horse.”
LEANDRO MORA (ASST. TO DOUG O’NEILL), NECESSARY EVIL, Winner:& “That was phenomenal. Joel Rosario did an excellent job not to get excited and let her go. I was hoping to finish one-two, but we’ll take one-three. I had second thoughts (about her beating colts) because the colt (Classical Slew) was training awesome also. The last workout they worked together she was a little bit tough for him. That’s when we started thinking she could be competitive. I have to talk to Doug (O’Neill) and the owners about what to do with this filly. She’s been for sale since the get go. She didn’t sell at Pomona, so she’s still for sale.”
