JOCKEY JUAN GUTIERREZ, CLASS INCLUDED, WINNER: “She’s a really nice filly. I feel like she’s one of the best I’ve ridden in my life. She tries hard all the time. She pulled a little in the first part of the race, but then she relaxed on the backside. I could tell we were getting the leaders, I was thinking I got, I got it, I got it. It’s a pleasure to ride a filly like this because she does everything right.”
