Sunset Handicap


Jockey Quotes

GARY STEVENS, MARKETING MIX, Winner: "(Trainer) Tom (Proctor) told me in the paddock to just take the race to them. He said this mare can gallop faster than the rest of them. I didn't know what the Brazilian horse (Hawk's Eyes) was going to do and (his rider) Victor (Espinoza) was intent on getting the lead. I couldn't have paid to have a better rabbit out in front of me. I just let my mare gallop. I had it in my head to two-minute lick her to the three-eighths pole and set her down and work her three eighths of a mile. I don't know if (Proctor) was necessarily using this as a tune up for the (Grade I, $750,000) Beverly D (Aug. 17 at Arlington Park), but it sure worked out. She was very, very happy."

SAINT LEON EXITS ARLINGTON SPRINT IN DIVINE FORM

Saint Leon has long been considered one of the best sprinters on the grounds at Arlington International Racecourse, but after Saturday’s gutsy victory in the Listed $100,000 Arlington Sprint, the 8-year-old speed demon could be mentioned as one of the best in the country. Sprinting wire-to-wire in a race turned inside-out by a bad break, the son of Stravinsky dueled the length of the stretch with Hogy, eventually turning back the highly regarded graded stakes winner to win by a head under E. T. Baird.

Le Cle Stakes


Jockey Quotes



JULIEN LEPAROUX, NEED YOU NOW, Winner: "I worked her in the morning and Mike (Mitchell) asked me if he should take the blinkers off. I told him it really doesn't matter because of her style. She put me right in the race today. She doesn't have that kick, but she just keeps going. Last time she ran OK (fourth in the Grade III Senorita May 11), but kind of even. I had a clear trip and didn't have to come between horses or anything and that's why she kept going."


Trainer Quotes



MIKE MITCHELL, NEED YOU NOW, Winner: "She was on the bit and that was a good in a way because (Wednesday) would have been out there by herself. We just didn't want her rank and running off and with the blinkers she was kind of like that. This worked out real well. There are a lot of 3-year-old filly races on the grass at Del Mar, so the timing of this worked out perfect. She can run all day. In fact, I’d prefer a mile and one-eighth."
