FRACTIONS—:23—45 4/5—1:09 2/5—1:12 4/5—FINAL:1:34 4/5

JOCKEY RICKY FRAZIER, NOOSA BEACH, WINNER: “I was a little anxious out of the gate. Noosa Beach broke great on his first step, but after his second step Gallon stepped straight down on the middle of his foot. I could tell it was bothering him, but I knew that he would fight through it. When we reached the stretch, I wanted to see how far I could open up on the field. Noosa Beach ran right by Winning Machine, and I was confident we had the race won. He beat the best of the best. He just does it all. He has shown from the get-go that he is a special horse. I put a lot of pressure on myself to win this race. I am just starting to let it sink in. I really want to relish this victory.”

JOCKEY KEVIN KRIGGER, JERSEY TOWN, SECOND: “I had the perfect stalking trip. He made his move on the leader, but by then, (Noosa Beach) had already made a big lead. I can't complain about my position, we were in a great spot. He's a really nice horse, and Tim (McCanna) has done an awesome job with him.”

JOCKEY GALLYN MITCHELL, ASSESSMENT, THIRD: “I knew that he would come back running well today. I threw his last race out. I got a wonderful trip. The break wasn't the best, but I have no excuses. We were close to the pace, and I was happy the way he was running. He gave me a shot to win.”

JOCKEY LESLIE MAWING, GALLANT SON, SIXTH: “My horse broke well, and the plan was to sit fifth or sixth. He had a tough time getting a hold of the track, and he started spinning his wheels a little bit. He started to make his move at the half-mile pole, but he never really gave me his usual spurt. It was hard to make up the ground. The leaders were just too far ahead.”

JOCKEY JENNIFER WHITAKER, WASSERMAN, NINTH: “The trip was good, but I got bumped pretty hard from the outside. We had the trip that we needed to win. The speed carried today, and he couldn't make up the ground.”
