Quiet Harbor Tallies in Marshua's River

When Romacaca turned for home after setting soft fractions in Saturday’s co-feature at Gulfstream Park, she kicked away smartly and looked home free. With less than a sixteenth to go, however, the field began to swarm-in causing a dramatic four horse photo finish. The beneficiary was Quiet Harbor, a 5-year-old daughter of Silver Deputy, who rallied best to win the co-feature by a head.

Ridden by Eddie Castro, Quiet Harbor was coming off a win in the Violet (G3) at the Meadowlands in October. The Marshua’s River was her fifth in a row and sixth overall. She is owned by Stuart Janney III and is trained by Shug McGaughey.

Lady Shakespeare, with Julien Leparoux, rallied to dead-heat with pacesetter Romacaca for second. Lomaki and Chris DeCarlo were fourth across the wire. The time for the race was 1:41.02.

 

Shug McGaughey (Quiet Harbor) – “Going into the race I thought it was about as tough a stakes for this group end-to-end from one to thirteen that you’ll see. Part of that may be that they cancelled the Mt Charmer at Calder (Dec. 6) which we were planning to run in, so they all ended up in here. The races at Monmouth Park fit well for her to run through her conditions last year while building up her confidence, and then she won the Violet (Meadowlands). Eddie (Castro) has ridden her well in all of her races and she had to come through a little trouble today. It was a very good race off the layoff. The Suwannee River (Feb. 6) is the next race for this group here. But off the lengthy layoff, it might be a little too close. We’ll find something for her here a little later.”

 

Eddie Castro (jockey, Quiet Harbor, 1st) - “At the top of the stretch I waited and waited to come through on the inside, and when it opened she had a nice kick. I saw the other horses coming up on the outside but knew at the wire I was the winner. I’ve ridden her five times now, and I’m a five-time winner on her.”
