CALIFORNIA DISTAFF HANDICAP QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

COREY NAKATANI, QIAONA, WINNER: “That’s her, that’s her style of running (coming from off the pace). You try not to change it, or leave her too much to do. She came with her ‘race face’ on today and I knew she was ready. I kept her happy, and let her run. She was ‘spot-on’ today, she has that racing fight in her. I know that six and a half probably isn’t her best distance but the race set up for us and I knew she was going to put in a big kick. I rode her with a lot of confidence, she put in a big kick and we got there.”

SURFER GIRL STAKES QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

RAFAEL BEJARANO, CLENOR, 7-10 FAVORITE, WINNER: “The speed was holding all day, so I didn’t want to be too far back. I tried to stay closer to the speed and get her comfortable. She didn’t show me the big kick that she normally does but she still ran well. I think from here on it will only be better for me because there will be more speed and more competition (in the races to come).”

ZUMA BEACH STAKES QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

COREY NAKATANI, AOTEAROA, WINNER: “I’ve asked Leonard (trainer, Powell) to ride the horse before, so I was stoked to get the opportunity. It’s kinda funny, I rode a horse that I loved at Del Mar and this horse blew right by us the day he broke his maiden (Aug. 4), so I knew this horse could really run. I rode his daddy (Good Journey) and I knew he’d love the grass. On paper, there was a lotta speed in the race, I thought, top to bottom. My horse broke on the lead, but I was able to ease him back, no problem, and he ran a big race.”

SANTA ANITA SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIP QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

MIKE SMITH, POINTS OFFTHEBENCH, WINNER: “I thought he could win today. Thinking it and doing it are two different things, but I did think it. All we had left was to do it. He’s very talented. Maldonado (on Distinctiv Passion) looked like he was getting away from us and I wanted to try and time it with this horse because if you hit the front too soon, he pulls up a little. Then I looked up and he was going a whole lot easier than he was supposed to be. He has some turn of foot, and I hit the front too soon, but he still held on. He pulled up nice and happy, well within himself. He’s a very talented horse.”

L.A.WOMAN STAKES QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

VICTOR ESPINOZA, TEDDY’S PROMISE, WINNER: “It was nice and easy today. I didn’t want to push or anything since the race (Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint on Nov.2) is less than a month away. I want to win but I don’t want to hurt her, she’s a filly, so she’s more sensitive. Everything worked out well and it was a good race.”

CITY OF HOPE MILE STAKES QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

MIKE SMITH, NO JET LAG, WINNER: “I have a lot of respect for Simon (Callaghan). In the paddock he told me it wouldn’t surprise him one bit if this horse won, to trust him. That’s all he had to say. I have the utmost respect for him and his opinion, so when he said that I knew I was live. I guess he got off a little slow last race, but he broke OK today. Actually, he was pretty aggressive the first part of the race but I just jammed him in behind, European style, like he’s used to and that turned out good enough.
