JOCKEY DAVID LOPEZ, ETHAN’S BABY, WINNER: “Well, she was much the best. I was a little worried about the first part, but she broke so good. She proved she was much better than the other fillies.”
JOCKEY FELIPE VALDEZ, SEEKING THE LIGHT, THIRD, 6-TO-5 SECOND CHOICE: “Just a bad break from the gate, then we got shut off after that. I thought I had room on the rail but they’re 2-year-olds and you can’t really blame anybody. She’s a really nice filly and came running in the end.”
