COREY NAKATANI ON WINNING THE FINAL RACE WITH WOODMAN’S LUCK
“Well, I made history. I won the last race and got the last set of days (he received a three-day suspension from the stewards earlier Sunday) at Hollywood Park. Kind of bittersweet. That was really emotional. It’s hard to really say that much. This has always been such a great place to be. After winning a bunch of races here, it’s hard to see it go. It’s pretty sad.”

VICTOR ESPINOZA, CALIFORNIA CHROME, Winner: “It’s fun to win the last stakes here. One extra memory of Hollywood Park. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs here, but this is where I started. When I moved to California, this is where I won my first race. I’ve won a lot of big races at this track. In a way it’s sad, but you have to move on in life. For me, the most important thing with this horse was the break. We came out well and he just took me around. I didn’t have to do much. I just moved my hands a little bit at the half mile and I felt the power.”
