Quotes for the Grey Goose Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies

Julien Leparoux (jockey, She Be Wild, 1st) – “I got a perfect race. I was on the rail all the way. I was hoping it would open up at the top, but I didn’t really know. It did open up, a little bit, and that was good. That was all I needed.”

Wayne Catalano (trainer, She Be Wild, 1st) – “When they were loading, she was getting a little excited but she broke good. Everything went well. I’m really happy with her. I was a little worried when it looked like she might get trapped but I have a good rider who is patient. I felt good when she poked her head in the hole. She’s not a big filly so it doesn’t take much room.:

Robby Albarado (jockey, Beautician, 2nd) – “I had a bounced-around trip into the first turn. I was shuffled back further than I wanted to be, but she ran really well. At the top of the lane I thought I was in good shape, but (winning jockey) Julien (Leparoux) was on the fence and got there. It would have been nice to have won two in a row.”

Kenny McPeek (trainer, Beautician, 2nd and Connie and Michael, 8th) – “They ran good. Beautician ran good. The other filly (Connie and Michael) looked like she may have gotten a little tired, but she didn’t have the bottom in her. She probably could have benefitted from another race or two, but she ran respectably. Beautician ran her race – I have no complaints.

Tyler Baze (jockey, Blind Luck, 3rd) – “She got bumped pretty hard on the first turn. She got jostled around pretty good at that point. She tried real hard, like she always does. I put her in place to win but she just got outrun.”

Jerry Hollendorfer (trainer, Blind Luck, 3rd) – “We got beat. No excuses. Coming for home, I thought we had enough horse to win.”

Eurico Da Silva (jockey, Biofuel, 4th) – “I got bumped pretty hard at the eighth pole. I was making a nice move but when she got bumped, my filly just gave up.”

Kent Desormeaux (jockey, Connie and Michael, 8th) – “I knew at the quarter pole (that she wouldn’t go on). It’s just her second start. I wouldn’t throw rocks at her. She’s very classy. She’s maturing and has the brains to (be a two-turn horse).”
