Kelly Breen (Bickersons) – “We took her all over last year, to California, and ran in the big races. I think we found out that she could do well around two turns in the right company, but not necessarily against the best. Seven-eighths is probably her best game and maybe she can go a one-turn mile. We passed the Old Hat (six furlongs) specifically to point for this race. When she blew out that 33 and four (fifths) I was concerned that she might have left her race at Palm Meadows (Jan. 24), but obviously she didn’t.”

 

Joe Bravo (jockey, Bickersons, 1st) – “That was really an eye-opener. Let’s put it like this; you’ve got the Breeders’ Cup winner and a full field, and our filly destroys a field like that. It makes us feel so good going forward with her. She’s been showing it all along in the mornings. (Trainer) Kelly (Breen) has some real nice fillies in his barn, and she has been showing her colors with them. She has some little quirks, but Kelly has done a great job putting in a lot of time with her. In any other barn I don’t think she would have made it this far. I give him all the credit.” 

 

Julien Leparoux (jockey, She Be Wild, 5th) – “She took to the dirt well and I got a good trip, but the distance was too short for her.”
