RAFAEL BEJARANO, SAINT ISABELLE, Winner: “The trainer told me he didn’t want me to send her to the lead. The last time she was on the lead but today it was a completely different kind of race. She was real relaxed behind the leaders…it was part of the plan. She had been working really well for this and I thought she would improve a lot. I saw everybody sending so I knew it would be good for me.”
MIKE PUYPE, SAINT ISABELLE, Winner: “I thought there was too much speed in the race and I knew we needed to try to change her tactics. She was a little late switching her leads, but when she did she kicked on. She closed before when we tried it that way, that’s why we knew it would float today. There’s a couple of other sprint stakes here at the meet we’ll look at. We’ll let her come back and see where she’s at.”
