Jockey Quotes

JOE TALAMO, OBVIOUSLY, Winner: “He is just an unbelievable horse. He did everything today pretty much the way we planned. We were cruising early and he kicked away nicely. He gave me the same feeling as he always does, he got up there, started to relax and then he gets in that big high cruising speed. He is the ultimate professional. He knows his job and knows very well what he has to do. There’;s nothing sweeter than for (Mitchell) to get his 900th win (at Betfair Hollywood Park) in a Grade I.’’

VICTOR ESPINOZA, ZA APPROVAL, Second: “He ran great. I just sat right in behind the pace to allow him to make a nice run. No one went with (Obviously). This horse is very nice and kind. He ran a great race.”

MARTIN GARCIA, ROSENGOLD, Winner: “I knew I would be on the lead. I didn’t want to take away this horse’s natural speed. Plus, he had a little time off and he was fresh. I just wanted to get him happy and let him go. I could see the other horse (Pure Loyalty) was closing fast, but when my horse heard him coming, he just took off.”

Jockey Quotes

RAFAEL BEJARANO, DOINGHARDTIMEAGAIN, Winner: “I thought (Ondine) might be the speed, but my horse broke on the lead really and I just kept my position on the rail. The main thing was the break. She was real comfortable all the way. I didn’t hit her too much, just a few taps on the shoulder. She can pretty much do anything. She’s real easy to ride.”

JOE TALAMO, IOTAPA, Second: “The winner had a pretty easy trip up front. I didn’t want to be the one pressing her and (Ondine) really didn’t do much. My filly ran her race, she was just outrun today.’’

Jockey Quotes

JOE TALAMO, INCLUDE ME OUT, Winner: “I was real surprised I was that close to the lead. She broke so sharp, I didn’t want to jerk her back. I really thought I’d be laying at least four of five lengths off the pace. We knew we had a good shot today but this was only her first race back. She won pretty handily. I think if I would have really asked her, she could have won by more. For her to go from routes to back sprinting like that is pretty impressive. That just goes to show how classy she is.”

VICTOR ESPINOZA, TEDDY’S PROMISE, Third: “I had plenty of room when she (Shumoos) bumped me. I was already in there. I almost hit the rail. She got intimidated, but she still tried to come back.”

RAFAEL BEJARANO, KOBE’S BACK, Winner: “It was unbelievable. This horse is something else. He was standing good in the gate but he kind of jumped when it opened. I worked him twice from the gate and he never did that before. The last time he broke so fast, I thought I was going to be two lengths in front today on an easy lead. The way he ran today, I think he can come from behind, too.”

MARTIN PEDROZA, WILLIE B AWESOME, Second: “(Trainer Walther) Solis’ other horse (Time for a Hug) let me through on the turn, but I really didn’t want to make the lead too soon because he pulls himself up. But when the hole opened, I had no choice but to go.”

RAFAEL BEJARANO, PLEASANT MISS, Second: “I tried to get her comfortable, but I had pressure on me. I had the rail, so I had to use her to keep my position.”

Jockey Quotes

JOE TALAMO, UNUSUAL HOTTIE, Winner: “I just rode her the same as last time; sat on the rail and came off at the quarter pole. She’s really courageous. When I split horses around the five-sixteenths pole, it was pretty tight, but she went right through there with no problem. She’s got a real nice turn of foot. I just kind of stayed busy on her the last part.”

Jockey Quotes

MARTIN GARCIA, SARACH, Winner: “The main thing was to break sharp. Every time she runs, she likes to be right there. Nobody went to the lead today and it was really comfortable for her to take it. She showed what she can do. If they would have gone faster, she would have been right there, but like I said there was no pace and I just took advantage from there.”

RAFAEL BEJARANO, SCARLET STRIKE, Second: “I came from behind this time because the last time I was rushing her a little. I took her back right away today and she became very relaxed. By the half-mile I could see there was no pace and I started to move and get a little closer. In the stretch, I let her go, but it was too late.”
