AFFECTIONATELY QUOTES


Ray Handal, assistant to winning trainer Anthony Dutrow, of Twice the Lady (No. 5): “This filly has been training great. She stayed up here after her last race, and Tony did a great job placing her and finding the spot. She’s a tough filly to find a race for. He nominated her and it came up nice. She’d been doing so good, I was pretty confident coming into the race. R Gypsy Gold looked tough but our filly showed her stuff today. We’ll see what happens but we’ll probably look for a similar spot.”

Cornelio Velasquez, winning jockey aboard Twice the Lady (No. 5): “I think the Pletcher horse [R Gypsy Gold] is a very tough horse, and I wanted to run a good second, but I had a lot of horse. The horse in front [Stephanie Jayne] wanted to go easy. I wanted to put pressure on at the three-eighths pole, but he had a lot of horse. My filly stayed strong.”

JIMMY WINKFIELD QUOTES


Rusty Myers, assistant to winning trainer Rick Violette, of Clawback (No. 3): “That went super today. I was a little nervous coming out of the gate – they all came together at one point –but he came out of there in good shape, sat second, and pulled the trigger when Irad asked him. The [1:09.75] was quick today. He did everything right. I think we’re going to stay with the one turn for a while, but that’s up to Rick and the owners. He’s running great sprinting.”


Irad Ortiz, Jr., winning jockey aboard Clawback (No. 3): “The trip today was perfect. He had a good post, he broke good, and I got a little pressure early on the outside. I asked him a little bit, and he picked it up pretty quick. I went a little fast, but in the end I still had a lot of horse.”
