$150,000 Beaumont Stakes Quotes

Christina Jelm (assistant to Jerry Hollendorfer, winning trainer of Ciao Bella Luna)

“She shipped (to Keeneland from California) beautifully. She settled right in, and she’s been very comfortable. It’s been great to get her back on the synthetic surface. Jerry and racing manager Mark Cornett have found her niche, I think.”

Joel Rosario (winning rider)

“I got a perfect trip. Turning for home, I knew she had plenty left. She did good today.”

Brian Hernandez Jr. (rider of second-place finisher Magical Moon)

“We had a perfect trip. She broke sharp and put herself right in the race. Turning for home, I thought I was on the winner. But that other filly (Ciao Bella Luna) ran a tremendous race.”

Mike Smith (rider of third-place finisher and beaten favorite Judy In Disguise [GB])

“When she broke slow, it cost me. That was the race for me. She stood too good, and it caused me to get away a little slow.”

Alan Garcia (rider of fourth-place finisher Fearless Jacq [IRE])

“She broke good and finished well. The first three were a little better today. I was a little close to (Allaboutcaroline when she ducked out), but nothing bothered me.”

Robby Albarado (rider of 10th-place finisher Cash Is Queen)

“My filly ducked right toward the gap and bounced right off the fence (shortly after the start). Young horses will do that sometimes.”
