SANTA MONICA STAKES QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

VICTOR ESPINOZA, TEDDY’S PROMISE, WINNER: “She set up very well for me. She broke a little slow out of the gate but it was good for me. That’s what I wanted, a chance to move to the outside. There were two horses in front of me and I just tracked them. At the three-eighths pole I kind of just let her do her own thing, and turning for home I just let her run.
“She’s an unbelievable filly and I know Ron (Ellis) is the best in training her. When she’s good she can beat anybody. She and I have been getting along the few times I rode her. I know how she likes to run and she ran big in the last race and then again today. Hopefully she has come back as herself.”

SAN PEDRO STAKES QUOTES


JOCKEY QUOTES

EDWIN MALDONADO, DISTINCTIV PASSION, WINNER: “It’s not always easy getting him to relax. Now that he is starting to relax I don’t think stretching out to seven (furlongs) should be any problem. He has gone 1:08 (final time today was 1:08.50) in his last two races so we know he has speed.”

(In response to where he might be pointed next. He is SA Derby-nominated): “I’m not sure. That is up to Jeff (Bonde and connections) to figure out.”

PALOS VERDES STAKES QUOTES


JOE TALAMO, SAHARA SKY, WINNER: (In response to the horse coming off a layoff and going off at such a big price): “I was real confident. I know Jerry (Hollendorfer) always has them nice and tight off the layoff. He ran unbelievable. That was actually the closest he’s ever run; I thought he was going to be 10 lengths further back than he was. He broke sharply, he put me right there, and I still had a lot of horse when I called on him. I just followed him (Rafael Bejarano on Justin Phillip) the whole race; whatever he did, I did. I had a lot of horse today.”
