Jockey Quotes

 

 

VICTOR ESPINOZA, EVENING JEWEL, Winner: "She was in the bridle all the way.  She was doing it easy and wasn't rank at all but was just right in the bridle.  After the first half mile she was strong so I wanted to wait as long as I could and not use her. This is a tremendous job by Jim (Cassidy), the way he's improving this filly."

 

MIKE SMITH, COZI ROSIE, Second: "I missed the break and probably should have won.  The other mare is really talented and really tough.  We were hitting our best strde at the end, so that's a good sign."

 

Trainer Quotes

 

 

          JAMES CASSIDY, EVENING JEWEL, Winner: "I think that I'll swim her next, that's the only thing she hasn't done yet.  She's just a wonderful filly.  With that kind of pace and as keen as she was she didn't try to pull or get a little rank.  I didn't want to run against Blind Luck in the Hollywood Oaks, so this was my other choice.  Actually, I thought about the Oaks and this was my first choice. She's worked over the turf fabulously, but you never know.  The ($250,000) American Oaks (on July 3 at Hollywood Park) and the Del Mar Oaks are next and that takes her to the end of the summer.  Then the Queen Elizabeth II (at Keeneland in the fall), if everything goes well.’’
