Jockey Quotes

MARIO GUTIERREZ, QUIET OASIS, Winner: “The race went exactly like we thought. He (trainer Ben Cecil) told me to break out of there and try to get her to relax. Actually, she was pretty easy to ride today. She relaxed really well and we got the job done.”

MIKE SMITH, NEREID, Fourth: “Naturally I would have loved to win, but she ran dynamite. Coming off a layoff she ran great. She’ll improve.”

BEN CECIL, QUIET OASIS, Winner: “I told (owner J.) Paul (Reddam) we should run in the 6 ½ furlong allowance (the seventh race May 4) because I thought first time off the layoff she’d be a little keen. So I let him make the call and he made the right one to run here. He gets all the credit. We’ve always thought a lot of her. We’re hoping next time she’ll settle even more. How far she’ll go is a question mark.”

VLADIMIR CERIN, BRIECAT, Deadheat for second: “I’m not surprised she got tired. She lost her shoe and ripped her foot up right at the start of her last race, so she missed enough training to where I was a little concerned. But you know what, you can’t pass these races up just because you missed a little training.”

JOHN SHIRREFFS, NEREID, Fourth: “She ran really well. I thought it was a very nice race first time back. We’ll move on from here.”
