*JOEL ROSARIO, GYPSY’S WARNING, Winner: “I didn’t really take her back, I just let her relax and get comfortable. She seemed like she was going to be a little rank, but she settled herself down. When I asked her to go, she really kicked. The only instructions I got were to let her relax, keep her covered up and make one run. I don’t know how good she is, but she really showed me something today.”
RAJIV MARAGH, WASTED TEARS, Second: “Second best today. My filly ran real well. She put 110 per cent effort out there, but you have to give a lot of credit to the winner. She ran a great race to beat me.
RAFAEL BEJARANO, SPECIAL DUTY, Seventh: “She broke well, but she never really wanted to get in the race. She tried to get out on the first turn because she never wanted to bite the bit. She was just completely lost out there. I tried to hit her a couple of times to try and put her on the bit but nothing worked. She warmed up real well and I thought she was going to run big. I tried to do what the boss said, keep her by herself and keep her covered up, but she started lugging out almost immediately.”
ARON WELLMAN (TEAM VALOR INTERNATIONAL co-owner, ), GYPSY’S WARNING, Winner: “She’s a class, class filly. It could not have gone any better than how we planned it today. We knew that there were three speeds in the race. We wanted to sit in and draft right behind them. The only thing we told Joel (Rosario) was to get her to relax because she only has about a quarter of a mile burst so don’t use her too early. He was sitting on a bomb at the three-eighths pole. I think the first quarter won the race for us and lost the race for Wasted Tears. She probably ran the last quarter in about 22 (seconds). That’s a legitimate Grade 1 filly. Now she’s a Grade 1 winner in South Africa and a Grade 1 winner in America. That says it all about her.”
