Jockey Quotes

MIKE SMITH (Winner, Street Fancy): “She’s anxious before the race starts, but once she leaves there she’s cool and was very relaxed today. We’re actually still figuring each other out and that’s what was happening in the early part of the race. I wasn’t concerned about coming up on the inside in the stretch because there was plenty of room and she was very focused.’’

ALEX SOLIS (Second, Stays in Vegas): “We got a good trip. She relaxed nicely. I waited as long as I could, but I did have to move a little earlier than I wanted. She was game and showed a lot of heart.’’

$100,000 Harlan’s Holiday Quotes


Trainer Marcus Vitali (Valid): “He’s a good horse. He’s back at home. He likes it here. We knew there was some speed in there. I told (jockey) Javier (Castellano) just be light in the mouth and keep him close. Javier decided to let two or three horses go and when it was time, he asked and as usual Valid responded.”

“He was doing really good, and the Breeders’ Cup I don’t think took a lot out of him. He’s a class horse and good horses make good trainers. He’s been holding up really good and training good. I thank Crossed Sabres for the opportunity again. They’ve been very generous and trusting in me and that’s why I’m here.”
