MIKE SMITH, RUMOR, WINNER: (In response to how he felt she came to this race, if he thought she was going to step forward here.)
“Well, it didn’t look that way. Last time I rode her she was just quiet, really, really quiet. Quiet in the gate, didn’t get into the race, just stayed quiet. Today, I said I really want to warm her up, at least, at some point, get her into the race and see what would happen. When I did, she just locked on, and once she did that I knew she was going to run, it was just a matter of being good enough. You know, I’m not too sure Teddy Promise ran her race today, but when I saw that she wasn’t really ‘kickin’ on I thought I had a shot to win it. Once I got her clear she went on about her business. She went to the front a little sooner than you would want, but like I said, you never know with ‘Teddy;’ she might fire a big one on us. You got to get her when you can, and that’s what we did. She kind of loafed a little at the end and she won well within herself.”

COREY NAKATANI, HEAR THE GHOST, WINNER: (Jerry Hollendorfer said he wasn’t surprised by the fast pace, how about you?)

“Not at all. I felt that they were going to go fast. So I thought, ‘let’s get away good and make someone commit to going to the pace we need for him’. He’s a tremendous horse. Jerry said, ‘I’m going to find you a good one’ and I’ve been working some horses for him in the morning, asking for some help. I want to stay home, with my family, and stay on the West Coast. I’d like to get on the Derby trail with a horse, and this is it. He’s given me a chance to win (another) Santa Anita Derby with this colt, and the horse has done everything Jerry has asked him to do so far, so hopefully, he’ll be on that road.”

Fred “Cappy” Capossela Quotes

Art Magnuson, assistant to Kiaran McLaughlin, winning trainer of Maleeh (No. 1): “I was a little worried about the rail [post], watching the races all day today. He stepped it up. It was a tough race, and you don’t know until you try. We were in a very good spot. I was only worried about how much horse [Eddie Castro] had under him, but I liked where we were.”
