PAT VALENZUELA, GONE REBEL, Winner: “I’d never been on her, but Vladimir (Cerin) told me she had a lot of speed. She broke kind of a half-step slow behind the front two and after a sixteenth of a mile she put them away and went on about her business. She’s a very fast filly. I was riding her hard the last part because when you’re going for a stakes race you surely want to get them some black type and I don’t want to be caught at the wire, do I?”
VLADIMIR CERIN, GONE REBEL, Winner: “She really didn’t break well today, which really surprised us. But she’s just really fast. I was so disappointed with her race in the (Darley) Debutante( Sept. 4 at Del Mar). Sometimes things just don’t go the way you want them to. She’s just a beautiful, athletic and talented filly. She’s a Louisiana bred and there’s a race for Louisiana breds ($250,000 Louisiana Jewel) November 20 (at Delta Downs) going one mile. Hopefully against Louisiana breds she can get the mile. Patrick’s good at relaxing them.”
