$73,600 Harry Henson Stakes Jockey Quotes
GARRETT GOMEZ, SUMMER EXCLUSIVE, Winner: "I had a dream trip, really. (Trainer) Pete (Miller) and I talked a little before the race and it ended up just like we thought. I ended up in an ideal spot. They weren't flying, but there were four of them across the track and it was just a matter of waiting to see who was going to be the first one to move forward and that I was going to follow. Finally, I decided to follow (Sacred Ovation) because it looked like he was traveling the best. I slid up inside, came around and I thought I could go and get him anytime I want. I had to work a little harder than I expected. You can throw his second race out (Santa Anita Derby) so today was kind of starting from scratch with him. Hopefully, this will build his confidence back up."
