VICTOR ESPINOZA, SMILING TIGER, Winner: “He ran great. He’s coming back good. He was a little green last time out…he got worked up in the post parade and he had the inside. Everything was different last time, but it got him ready for today. That was the plan, to be on the lead. He broke out of there running and I just let him go.”
JEFF BONDE, SMILING TIGER, Winner: “The first time back we took a little chance running on turf because we wanted to get a race into him. He had a rough trip on the inside. He was pretty wild in the paddock but he was more professional today. I was confident he was going to run his race. He was strong and the time of the race was pretty good and I thought he really produced a top race today.”
