Trainer Bill Mott (Amira's Prince): He just didn’t quicken with them. He got a little anxious. First time out, he got a little anxious.”
Jockey Orlando Bocachica (Lochte): "It feels great. I love it. I think I'm actually shocked. I didn't know today would be the day in such a stake. Before the turn, I knew I still had some horse (under me). Vitali told me he was a really nice horse. I was just waiting and waiting to have the room. When I had the room to ask him, he was there for me. He just ran his race. He (Lochte) was nice to me. He never had any trouble, and I never had to check him. He was in the right spot and I was just waiting to have the clear and the moment for him to run his race.
"I think he's my new favorite horse."
This was the first Grade I victory for trainer Marcus Vitali and jockey Orlando Bocachica
