MARTIN GARCIA, ROSENGOLD, Winner: “I knew I would be on the lead. I didn’t want to take away this horse’s natural speed. Plus, he had a little time off and he was fresh. I just wanted to get him happy and let him go. I could see the other horse (Pure Loyalty) was closing fast, but when my horse heard him coming, he just took off.”
JULIO CANANI, ROSENGOLD, Winner —“I just freshened this horse up because he ran three very hard races at Santa Anita. I didn’t want to run him until Del Mar, but now he’s ready for the ($100,000) Oceanside (Stakes July 17). I really don’t have to do much with him now. I’m glad I was able to make it out. I was in the hospital (June 19 and 20) for an operation on my eye.”
