Great Lady M. Stakes Quotes

Jockey Quotes

JOE TALAMO, SCHIAPARELLI, Winner: "I saw that other filly (Purim's Dancer) break in front but we really weren't going all that fast. I just let mine run her race. We were real fortunate to draw outside. We could just have easily laid second. I really think adding the (ear muffs) on her with the blinkers made a big difference. She's a different animal right now. She was just cruising with a real good rhythm. Down the lane I kind of stayed after her because I didn't want her to see anything like she did last time. She's definitely getting better with age and with every race she runs. The thing is to get her to relax because in the post parade she's pretty high strung. In the race she's totally different and very professional."

Sheepshead Bay (G2) Quotes

Alan Goldberg, winning trainer of Tannery (No. 3), by telephone: “We have a turf course at [Colts Neck Farm], but we’ve had such a wet spring and we weren’t able to train her over it and had to work her on the dirt. We try to have our horses fit, but with her first start of the year being a mile and a quarter, I didn’t expect her to be completely ready. She came out of the race great, and I thought she’d handle the conditions today.”

Jockey Quotes

JOE TALAMO, OBVIOUSLY, Winner: "He just did it so easy. Besides California Flag sprinting, I've never ridden a horse like this going long. He just lopes along like that. With him going (46.09 seconds for the first half mile) today, I almost made the sign of the cross. That's like 47 4/5 for any other horse. The main hope is to try to get him back to the Breeders' Cup. At the three-eighths pole I just kind of gave him his head and hopefully tried to steal the race from there. He's a jockey's dream. You just sit on him and he does the rest. He's just a tremendous horse."
