6 FURLONGS IN 1:09.88
JOCKEY JUAN GUTIERREZ, CHU AND YOU, WINNER: “I had a lot of speed under me and I just tried to save the horse for the last part. She took the lead really easy. She’s a nice filly. I had three horses in this race that I had to choose from. This time, I chose the right one.”
JOCKEY DEBBIE HOONAN, STRAWBERRY DAWN, SECOND: “She's a game, classy filly. She didn't turn a hair in the paddock and had no issues in the gate. We didn't have a perfect trip. It was tight at the five-sixteenths pole, and we bounced off the rail, but she recovered in one stride. Like most good ones, she doesn't pull early and just settles in. We just ran out of racetrack.”
