Gulfstream: $150,000 Herecomesthebride (G3) Quotes

Assistant Trainer Norman Casse (Catch a Glimpse): “I think she was going so fast around the turn she kind of bore out a little. She’s still learning and not 100 percent professional. But she’s obviously very talented and she’ll get even better as she goes on. It was good (return) and we’re excited to have her back, and we look to moving forward from here.”

Jockey Florent Geroux (Catch a Glimpse): "I was loaded [going into the far turn]. Going into the elbow she pointed her ears and lost focus just a little bit, then she just galloped home easy."

Gulfstream:$200,000 Davona Dale (G2) Quotes

Trainer John Servis (Cathryn Sophia): “Today, I think was probably, to me, her most impressive race. She trained well going into the race. It was only her fourth start. I think there’s a lot more there. She’s showed me a little more every time. Today, she was push-button.

“I told Javier (Castellano), ‘If she breaks running don’t fight her, because they’re going to have to run along pretty quick to run with her.” He took a little hold and she settled really nice. When he called on her, she was there. At the head of the lane, I was worried about the ‘4’ (Lewis Bay). He [Irad Ortiz Jr.] was strangling the ‘4,’ but she just ran away from them.

Gulfstream Park Sprint (G3) Quotes

Trainer Jorge Navarro (X Y Jet): “Coming into the paddock, he wasn’t the same horse as last time out. He was ready. I was like, ‘Oh my God, they’re in trouble.’ My biggest concern with X Y Jet has always been the gate. I don’t know what happens back there, if he’s not paying attention to what goes on, but I always tell Jaramillo, ‘Please make sure of a clean break, that they’re holding his head up so he’s not looking down.’ We went through that last year, and he was a nightmare. I know what kind of a horse he is. Last year we thought he was a nice horse.”
