VICTOR ESPINOZA, BOBINA, Winner: “I hurt my left index finger. It’s the same hand where I had an old injury, just in a different place. I rolled a few times and I kind of hit it right there. She was running unbelievable, as hard as she could. She bobbled a little for one step just before the wire and I tried to hold her together. Next thing I know, she just went down. For a minute I thought I was going to handle it, but it was impossible. It was just one wrong step. There was no warning. She didn’t give me any sign that anything was bothering her. I feel good right now, but I’m going to take a couple of races off to see how it is.”
KEVIN KRIGGER, MY GI GI, Second: “Right before the wire I got a real hard bump and it almost knocked me off stride. That’s right before she came back out and broke down. I feel real sorry for the owner, you never know sometimes.”
