RAFAEL BEJARANO, MADE TO LOVE HER, Winner: “I was in perfect position right out of the gate. She surprised me a little bit today. I knew she was going to run well, but not that well. From the first time I rode her to the second, she improved, but today she showed me a really big kick. She was still running strong at the wire. Seven or 7 ½ furlongs may be her best distance.”
JAMES KASPAROFF, MADE TO LOVE HER, Winner: “There really weren’t any (allowance races), so you either have to run in a stakes or ship somewhere else. This seemed like an ideal spot. She really likes Hollywood Park quite a bit, she trains very, very well here. I wanted to run her 7 furlongs. I thought it would be an excellent distance for her and the timing was perfect. She got an excellent trip and ran fantastic. We’ll see how she comes out of the race and we’ll look at the ($250,000-guaranteed, Grade I) Hollywood Starlet (Dec. 10). She’d have to be supplemented (for $10,000, plus an additional $10,000 to start), but we’ll take a look.”
