JOE TALAMO, TROIS AUREOLE, Winner: “This is a nice filly. I think she’s really starting to come into herself. She ran her race last time (Grade II Honeymoon Handicap June 9) but just got outrun. She got a little nervous in the paddock that day but it was one of those days when it was so hot and real muggy. But today, she had a turn of foot just out of this world. I kept her behind until the top of the lane and when I wheeled her out, I didn’t even have to hit her. She just exploded. (Sadler) has done such a great job with her. Every time she comes to the races, she’s ready to go.”
LARRY BENAVIDEZ, Assistant Trainer, John Sadler, TROIS AUREOLE, Winner: “We got a couple of horses from (owner) J. W. Singer in the winter and this was one of them. She won that (maiden) $75,000 race (March 22 at Santa Anita). That’s the kind of race that gives horses a cut below, like her, a chance to run without much risk of being claimed. In the last month or so, she has really improved. The Honeymoon just turned out to be a salty race. She really kicked home today. She kind of tipped her hand when she relaxed so well in the paddock today. I was pretty confident.”
