Stakes Quotes and Charts

Bill Mott (trainer, Unrivaled Belle, 1st) – “She can be the most docile horse around the barn, but when she goes to the paddock it can be a battle. She’s actually pretty good when she does get in the gate. We (Mott and Desormeaux) didn’t have much time to talk about strategy in the paddock the way she was acting, which is probably for the best. I haven’t seen the replay yet, but it pretty much looked like she went on out to the lead on her own. She was a still a maiden at Keeneland last year and had some minor issues, so she had kind of a limited campaign. She ran well in the Gazelle and we were looking forward to this year. She’s been invited to the Apple Blossom (Oaklawn Park on Apr. 9) and then there is a race Derby weekend at Churchill. We’ve also got another nice filly in Justwhistledixie, so we’ll look at the options.”  

 

Kent Desormeaux, (jockey, Unrivaled Belle, 1st) – “She froze going into the gate, but that’s all it was. It’s not a simple thing to explain, but hopefully it’s something she gets over. The last couple of times we tried to hold her off the lead and I was a little disappointed with the way she ran, so I thought maybe we should employ a different tactic today and go for the lead. Thankfully that change in the plan was successful. At no point late was I worried that the other horses were going to come get her, she still had plenty left at the finish.”

 

Javier Castellano (jockey, Champagne Eyes, 2nd) – “The way my filly ran today, everything was just about perfect. The trainer (Marty Wolfson) told me exactly what to do, and I kept track of the winner all the way around. And my trip worked out the way I wanted, the winner just got away.”

 

Pablo Andrade (trainer, Bambera, 9th) – “She cut her tendon. (Jockey) Edgar (Perez) told me that it happened when she was coming out of the gate. It doesn’t look too bad and my vet is looking at it now.”
