AUTUMN MISS STAKES QUOTES
RAFAEL BEJARANO, LADY TEN, WINNER: “This filly is very nice to ride, and easy to ride, too. She likes to be close to the lead so I was a little worried in the beginning. She broke good from the gate but I knew there would be a lot of speed so I tried to make sure to give her help from the gate so she could find a position in the race.
“When I got my position at the first turn I just tried to hold her a little bit then let her run when we hit the top of the stretch. She was easy to ride and I think you can do anything you want with this filly. I was waiting for Garrett’s (Gomez) horse late because I knew his filly would be the only one running at the end. When I came to the top of the stretch I let my filly go and tried to get the jump, but at the same time, I tried to save a little bit for the end. It ended up perfect for my filly.”
