SANTA LUCIA STAKES QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

COREY NAKATANI, SISTER KATE, WINNER: “I was trying to put her in the race and let her assert herself as the speed, but David (Flores) wanted to go on Baffert’s horse. I opted to let him go ahead and go, I got to his outside to track him and it ended up working out for us.”

DAVID FLORES, CANDREA, SECOND: “She got tired. I never got a chance to make her change her lead at the end, she was laying down. She tried, she was honest, and she gave me a great run, no complaints. Sometimes, that’s just the way it goes.”

Arkansas Derby Quotes:


Owner Mike Repole, Repole Stable (1st Overanalyze) (via phone) – “When (jockey) Johnny (Velazquez) got off him after the Gotham he said he flattened out probably needed the race. Todd was going to run Verrazano in the Wood, so we decided to split the two horses up and come here. I wasn’t surprised that he won, but I was shocked at how easy he won. I’m really blessed to have a filly (Unlimited Budget) for the Oaks and now a colt for the (Kentucky) Derby.”
