Cat’s Cradle Handicap Quotes


Jockey Quotes

JOE TALAMO, WARREN'S VENEDA, Winner: "I was glad I was able to get to the outside. That was the only concern for (Lewis) and I. It looked like (Sister Kate) was the only speed and I was fortunate enough to get around her. She's such a classy filly and obviously loves this track. I worked her before her last race (7 ¼ length optional claiming victory Oct. 13 at Santa Anita) and she's even better now than she was then. I think the farther the better with her."

Sharp Cat Stakes Quotes


Jockey Quotes

COREY NAKATANI, ARETHUSA, Winner: "She ran a big race. When Eoin (Harty) asked me to ride, he told me she's by A.P. Indy and would get the distance. I said, ‘Perfect, let's go get the money, boss.' My main thing was to just get her into a rhythm and she would take me at them. And that's what happened. Any time you can win a race like that with a 2-year-old filly, the future looks bright."

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."

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."

Jockey Quotes

JOE TALAMO, OBVIOUSLY, Winner: "He is just an unbelievable horse. He did everything today pretty much the way we planned. We were cruising early and he kicked away nicely. He gave me the same feeling as he always does, he got up there, started to relax and then he gets in that big high cruising speed. He is the ultimate professional. He knows his job and knows very well what he has to do. There’;s nothing sweeter than for (Mitchell) to get his 900th win (at Betfair Hollywood Park) in a Grade I.’’

Jockey Quotes

VICTOR ESPINOZA, CENTRALINTELIGENCE, Winner: "He was ready today. He was ready to go. The race set up very well, the way I wanted it. I just saved his energy for the end and let him run when it was time. Last time I rode him he broke a little bit slow, so I came and worked him out of the gate the other day prior to this race. He performed to our expectations.
