SWALE Stakes Quotes

Rick Dutrow (D’Funnybone) – “He ran like I thought he would. It looked like he was pretty much in control all the way. My first choice for him next would be the Withers (Apr. 24 at Aqueduct), a one-turn mile, then see where we are.”

 

Edgar Prado (jockey, D’ Funnybone, 1st) – “It was easy. He had a little pressure early but he was just galloping along. The track has been fast all day, so we just wanted to take advantage of that. There was really never any concern out there; maybe a little when a couple of the horses hooked up with him early, but he was always going along at a cruising speed, and at that point I hadn’t asked him to go yet. To me, the way he is running now is great, and we’ll leave it up to (trainer) Rick (Dutrow) whether we try and take on more distance.”

 

John Velazquez (jockey, Ibboyee, 2nd) – “I had a good trip, but he didn’t take to the dirt in his face all that well. It was kicking back on him and he didn’t really like it.”
