VICTOR ESPINOZA, TEDDY’S PROMISE, Winner: “Today she was ready to go and did everything right. When she feels like running, she runs. She’s really honest and an old pro. It’s amazing how (Ellis) takes his time with her and gets her ready for a race.”
MARTIN GARCIA, JUDY IN DISGUISE, Second: “She ran a really good race. I thought she ran well shortening up to six furlongs. I love riding for (Callaghan). He always has his horses ready.”
RON ELLIS, TEDDY’S PROMISE, Winner: “For me, she didn’t fire her best race in the Breeders’ Cup (eighth in the Filly and Mare Sprint Nov. 2), but she came out of the race awesome. She’s come out of all her races this year a lot better than last year. We had this race on the docket. I would imagine the (Grade II, $200,000) Santa Monica (Stakes Jan. 25 at Santa Anita) will be her swan song and then she’s going to be bred to Smart Strike. We’re sorry to lose her. She’s been a great mare for us.’’
SIMON CALLAGHAN, JUDY IN DISGUISE, Second— “No complaints. The winner is very good and our filly ran a great race. She galloped out well. I think 6 ½ or 7 furlongs is kind of her distance.’’
RICHARD MANDELLA, RUMOR, Third: “She stumbled or did something leaving the gate. I couldn’t really tell what it was. She still got up and ran pretty well.
