JOE TALAMO, RYEHILL DREAMER, Winner: “I was so glad that other horse (Liberian Freighter) went with Sidney’s Candy. We thought on paper it would be like that, but you never know until it actually happens. It set up great for him today and Julio (Canani) has done a great job getting him to relax. In his earlier races he would get kind of rank the first part, but he relaxed so nice for me today.”
JOEL ROSARIO, SIDNEY’S CANDY, Second: “That’s the way he likes to run. I think he ran great. The horse who won is doing really good, too. I’m not surprised he beat me. My horse was nice and relaxed and looking around. He just got a little bit tired the last 25 yards. Next time will be different.”
JULIO CANANI, RYEHILL DREAMER, Winner: “It took a lot of patience with this horse. He has his issues, but when he was down at San Luis Rey, Carlos (Lopez) took his time with him. When he came back to me he was ready to do something. I took my time, too, to start with him, but it paid off. I just told Marsha (Naify) we’re going to win the $5 million race in Dubai (the Duty Free) with this horse. Why not? I’ll play everything by ear as far as the Shoemaker Mile.”
JOHN SADLER, SIDNEY’S CANDY, Second: “I think he (Martin Garcia) was doing the same thing he did with Conveyance in the Derby and the way he rode against this horse in the La Jolla. He just rides to get you beat if he can’t win. He doesn’t help his horse win. His horse ran a bad race, so what can you say.”
