Jockey Quotes

MIKE SMITH (Winner, Street Fancy): “She’s anxious before the race starts, but once she leaves there she’s cool and was very relaxed today. We’re actually still figuring each other out and that’s what was happening in the early part of the race. I wasn’t concerned about coming up on the inside in the stretch because there was plenty of room and she was very focused.’’

ALEX SOLIS (Second, Stays in Vegas): “We got a good trip. She relaxed nicely. I waited as long as I could, but I did have to move a little earlier than I wanted. She was game and showed a lot of heart.’’


Trainer Quotes

PHIL D’AMATO (Winner, Street Fancy): “She showed a lot of tenacity and fight and (jockey) Mike (Smith) says we still haven’t gotten to the bottom of her yet. She can be a little temperamental at times and we’ve been working a lot with her to get her to relax and slowly but surely she’s been coming along. It’s been three different distances at three different tracks and today we got the big one. She’s a big, giant scopey filly. She looks twice the size of anybody else in this field . I knew she wanted to go two turns. I was just hoping today was the day she showed she wanted it and she did.’’

DAN WARD (Assistant Trainer, Second, Stays in Vegas): “She ran great. She ran a good race on the dirt.’’
