$150,000 JPMorgan Chase Jessamine (G3)


Dale Romans (winning trainer of Moonwalk)

“You just don’t know with all these horses. She’s doing good and she can run, so we’ll give her a shot. She showed how much she can run.”

On whether she will make her next start in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1)

“I don’t know why we wouldn’t. I’ll talk to (Spendthrift Farm owner) Mr. (B. Wayne) Hughes and (farm general manager) Ned (Toffey) about it, but I don’t know why we wouldn’t. You have a free roll.”


Corey Lanerie (winning jockey)

“My horse broke really sharp. Kinda surprised me. Last time I rode her I was a little off the pace. Today she came out there running. She was going real easy so I tried to take nothing away from her and just ride her where she was comfortable. Actually they got by her and she dug in. She refused to lose.”

On whether he knew he had won the close finish because he pumped his fist

“I thought so. When I came back and saw the photo I got a little nervous. I thought I had won it.”


John Velazquez (rider of runner-up Kitten’s Point)

“I had a great trip. We covered up the way we wanted to. She responded right away when I asked her. We were in a little tight around the quarter pole and we went a little wider than we wanted to and it took us a little while to get going again. She was very game for everything I asked her to do. I thought I won the race.”


Eddie Castro (rider of third-place finisher Summer of Fun)

“I had a great trip, no trouble at all. When I made the lead at the top of the stretch, I thought I was going to win. She just a got little tired right at the end.”
