BONNIE MISS Stakes Quotes


Todd Pletcher (trainer, Devil May Care, 1st) – “We’ve always thought a lot of this filly, but I’m not surprised that some could be a little skeptical after her last two races. In the case of the Breeders’ Cup it was simply a matter of she hated the synthetic (track). She trained great for the race in Louisiana, but then she misbehaved at the gate and then they got pretty severe with her and then used tongs, which most fillies don’t handle well. When she made the lead so easily today she ducked when she started to see things, which makes you consider putting blinkers on, although you don’t like to that after a winning race. We’ll see about that. She’ll go right to the (Kentucky) Oaks from this race.”


John Velazquez (jockey, Devil May Care, 1st) - “I saw that the other horse (Amen Hallelujah) was still in hand, but my filly too was in hand too, and I always knew we were able to go by any time I wanted. But the most important thing with this filly is to not make the lead too soon, because I know that once she makes the lead, she tries to stop and wants to put the brakes on. She did that today; and then she started going in and out a little through the stretch. But when I got her mind back to running, she kept on going with a nice kick. She has tremendous talent, but she still has some learning to do.”


Julien Leparoux (jockey, Amen Hallelujah, 2nd) – “She got a little tired last and she started to pull a bit, but I think it was a good race and she’ll be in good shape for the race in Kentucky (Kentucky Oaks.)”


Corey Nakatani (jockey, Christine Daae, 6th) – “She never really settled like we thought she was going to. But it wasn’t a disgrace; there are some nice horses that were in there. (Trainer) Patrick (Biancone) told me the timing of the race might be a little bit quick back for her. I didn’t want to ask too much of her on the turn. We’ll just go back to the drawing board with her and go get the next one.”
