MAC DIARMIDA QUOTES

 

Mary Hartmann (Presious Passion) – “We were concerned earlier in the day that the course might be less than firm, but after discussing it with Mr. (Generazio) we decided to go ahead and run, and that it would be better looking ahead to Dubai to have a race than not, although we planned to go anyhow and train him up to that race if necessary. He only had the one workout since his last race, but as they get older they don’t need to do as much. It’s become his pattern. We’re ready to go now if everything goes all right.”

 

(Note: Presious Passion will run in the $5 million Dubai Sheema Classic going 12 furlongs on turf on Sat., Mar. 27 at the new Meydan Race Course. The plane carrying the South Florida-based contingent for races on the Dubai World Cup program is scheduled to leave on Mar. 16.)

 

Elvis Trujillo (jockey, Presious Passion, 1st) - “Everything went very nice today. The horse broke sharp and was very relaxed, and that was very good for the horse. Every time he goes right to the lead, and you just hope things go easy. Then at the three-eighths, you put him in the bit, and he just goes on. (The turf) was perfect today. There were no problems (with the turf condition).”

 

Alan Garcia (jockey, Winchester, 2nd) – “My horse ran a good race. I thought the winner (Presious Passion) might get pressed a little harder, and the course was actually a little firm.”
