Generous Stakes Quotes

Jockey Quotes

JOE TALAMO, GLOBAL VIEW, Winner: "Before he left for Hong Kong, Gary Stevens (aboard for maiden win Oct. 27) told me a lot about this horse. He said this horse is very classy and pretty push-button. He sure was today. We had a great trip. I just took him to the outside and he did the rest."

MARTIN GARCIA, AOTEAROA, Second: "I had a lot of horse, but when I asked him on the turn he stayed the same. He may be just a little bit green. He responded, just a little bit late. He needed the race. Next time he'll be tough.

COREY NAKATANI, ROYAL BANKER, Third: "He was a little green coming out of the gate. He's a typical raw 2-year-old. I thought he ran a real good race."

KENT DESORMEAUX, PABLO DEL MONTE, Fifth; "No excuses. He absolutely gave me the perfect ride."

Trainer Quotes

TOM PROCTOR, GLOBAL VIEW, Winner: "He's a really nice horse and has always acted like a nice horse. I've worked him a mile. He's bred to run all day, so I wasn't worried about that. He relaxed, (Talamo) gave him a good trip, and it makes a horse look better when they get a good trip. It's nice to get a stakes win in him and we'll go from there."

LEONARD POWELL, AOTEAROA, Second: "He ran well. He hit a little bit of a flat spot at the three-eighths. (Garcia) was asking him but he didn't pick it up. Once he leveled out, he picked it up very well."
