COCONUT GROVE


Kelly Breen (trainer, In the Rough, 1st) –
“Like several other horses we’ve bought she has some turf pedigree. One of the great advantages of being stabled at Palm Meadows is that you get to try them on the turf in the morning and she showed she liked it. With the outside post, I told Joe (Bravo) to try to get over (toward rail) and save as much ground as possible, which he did, and then a hole opened up when they needed and she got through. If everything goes all right she’ll run back in the race on Mar. 6 ($150,000 Herecomesthebride Stakes G3) at 1 1/8 miles on turf). She broke her maiden on a muddy track, so we’ve got that going for us and probably wouldn’t have to scratch if a race comes off the grass.”

 

Joe Bravo (jockey, In the Rough, 1st) - “She’s doing really and she really seems to like the grass; she really excels on it. It is always a big advantage when you are able to save the ground, and I was really able to save her until the last minute. And when she saw daylight, she had plenty left.”

 

Alan Garcia (jockey, Check the Label, 2nd) – “My trip was good. I saw the other horse (In the Rough) on the rail, but I didn’t think she was coming up as good as she was. My filly still ran well.”
