JOCKEY ISAIAS ENRIQUEZ, BLAZINBEAUTY, WINNER: “This filly will let you do whatever you want. She broke great out of the gate and I saw the favorite go to the lead into the first turn and another horse chase him. I thought ‘ah perfect.’ I wanted to put my horse in the clear and just waited and waited. When it was time to go, she just kept getting closer and closer. I thought we could win it at the quarter-pole. She had so much horse and I hadn’t even asked her yet.”

JOCKEY ROCCO BOWEN, SO LUCKY, SECOND: “I was trying to get him clear so I could relax him on the front end but I just ended up going too fast early. It cost me the race. At the top of the lane, I knew he was getting tired. I was just hoping and praying I could keep him together but I couldn’t get the job done. I was trying to slow him down early but I didn’t want to slow him down too much and get him behind horses. He’s such a good horse. I know he can go two turns. Going that fast, he should’ve run last today but he still hung in there.”
