JOCKEY ISAIAS ENRIQUEZ, FIND JOY, WINNER: “Every single work coming up to this race she was doing better and better. When I broke out of the gate, she dragged me to the lead but I didn’t want to be there. It took about three-eighths to get her to relax and then she relaxed very nicely. When it was time to fire, she just went for it.”
JOCKEY FRANCISCO DURAN, MY HEART GOES ON, FOURTH: “She got out going fine, felt good underneath me. The difference today was she never got a breather once she got the lead. The pace was fast and we were under pressure for a long time. It got to her and she got tired at the end.”
