Trainer Marty Wolfson (My Pal Chrisy): "I thought Starship (Truffles) would beat this filly, but this filly has gotten so good, just so good since I bought her. She’s much better going one turn. As a young horse, she was a much better going short. I’ve watched her for the last year. I tried to buy her last year.

“She’s a Florida-bred. She’s eligible for the Claiming Crown (at Gulfstream on Dec. 7). She ran for $16,000. She has a lot of things here.”

On running four horses (My Pal Chrisy, Starship Truffles, Bringingdown Babel and Sure Route): “It’s tough to watch, keeping an eye on all of them. They were all where I wanted them to be, except Starship Truffles, who was too close to the pace.”

Jockey Jonathan Gonzales (My Pal Chrisy): "Mr. Wolfson told me to ride her like last time; take her back and keep an eye on (Wildcat Lily). When we were ready to make our move she responded well."

Jockey Elvis Trujillo (Appealing Stella): "I thought was I was going to win. Everything went well, but my horse had no excuse. The other horse (My Pal Chrisy) just beat us."
