Jockey Miguel Mena (Jody Slew, winner): “She broke out the gate awkwardly so I had to take back and save. When I asked her to move she responded and came flying.”


Trainer Bret Calhoun (Jody Slew, winner):Mr. Martin purchased her privately and we decided not to take her to Gulfstream (for last weekend’s $100,000 Sweetest Chant for 3-year-old fillies at one mile on turf) and keep her here and we wanted to keep her fit until the next grass race comes along. This really is her first two-turn race on the dirt so it looks like she is good on the dirt, too.


“It looked like she broke hard and Miguel grabbed her and she was in the race, and then she fell back, and then she won.


“We bought her off some nice (Ragozin) numbers. She was wide on both turns in her first grass race and it was also her first two-turn race. When she got here she breezed good for us. A lot of horses that are straight grass horses won’t handle the track at all the way it’s been with the weather, which is pretty deep and loose. I breeze a lot of horses here and the last couple times I’ve breezed her, she breezes as good as or better than any of them.


“In the mornings when she’s gathered up she’s got that high action that looks like turf but today she was jumping a long way.”


Owner Bill Martin (Jody Slew, winner): “We thought we were buying a grass filly off her race at Churchill but we haven’t been able to find a grass race for her. We put her in here to keep her fit so this was a pleasant surprise.”


Trainer Glenn Delahoussaye (Bella Medaglia, second): “As easy as Quiet Temper beat us last time we weren’t going to commit suicide by trying to go out there and hook her. Today we wanted everybody else to do the dirty work and we would try to pick up the pieces. It almost worked.”


Jockey John Jacinto (Tidal Pool, third): “It looked like the outside horse came over a little bit. She ran big and gave me a hundred-percent. She did what she could.”


Jockey Robby Albarado (Quiet Temper, fifth as odds-on favorite): “She was well-placed throughout. When I asked her for run she had already conceded. No excuses. I am sure she’s a better filly than this.”


Trainer Dale Romans (Quiet Temper, fifth as odds-on favorite): “We were chasing an awful fast pace and, I don’t know, I’ll go back to the barn and check her out.”


When she came back to be unsaddled did she look OK? “She was traveling fine and no excuses. I’ll just go back to the barn and check her out.”


Trainer Steve Margolis (Visavis, morning line second choice, scratched): “She was cast in her stall a few days ago and I think she bumped her right hip. The past one-and-a-half days she’s been a little body sore. She still went to the track in the mornings. It’s not anything serious and she’ll live to fight again.”
