Beverly D. Quotes
Kent Desormeaux (1st Mauralakana) - “She stays in (the bit pretty good) and I was pretty confident in her turn of foot, so I wasn’t worried about the ones in front of me. I just didn’t want anyone coming from behind to get me.”
Rene Douglas – (2nd Communique) – “She ran a hell of race. Everything went the way I wanted it to. I saved ground, but when the winner opened up at the top of the stretch I knew we had some running to do. The winner was beginning to back up a little to me, but it was a little too late. I’ll take the second and I’m so proud of way my filly ran today.”
Garrett Gomez, jockey Dreaming of Anna, 4th: "She ran really good, she settled well. She did everything I asked her to do. She actually brought herself back to get fourth place. For her first time going that far it was a good effort. It wasn't real firm, had a good cut to the ground. It's been a while since she has run (a race). Wayne and his team have done a good job. I'm real happy."
Wayne Catalano, trainer Dreaming of Anna, 4th: "She ran good, she tried hard. I thought she ran a nice race. It's a little further than she wants to run. But we're at home, we were trying to win it. We got a good post, we took a shot."
Rafael Bejarano (rider of beaten favorite Precious Kitten – 5th) – “I had a perfect position and we had a very good trip. The distance just got to her. At a mile to a mile and a sixteenth, no one can beat her. She’s a very good filly. She just got tired today.”
Ioritz Medizabal (Cicerole – 6th ): “We had a good trip. I followed Mauralakana all the way around the track. Mauralakana is a very good horse and we couldn’t keep up with her.
Robby Albarado (Meribel – 7th): “There was enough of a legitimate pace up from that I could have run them down. They caught her a bit wide in the second turn and had to drop her back in. Actually, I didn’t get beat that far at all – five, six length to win. It was a big effort on her part.”
John Velazquez (Ciao – 8th): “I had a perfect trip. We got close to the winner going to the half mile pole but they just got away from me – she kind of steadied the whole way down the lane, she just couldn’t get into another gear.
