MARTIN GARCIA, IRISH GYPSY, Winner: “She’s been running really well and improving so much. I had a really good position outside where she could relax and not have any pressure. She was just galloping out there just waiting to go. When I asked her to go she just took off.”
BOB BAFFERT, IRISH GYPSY, Winner: “That should have been four (wins), but we’ll take it. We got outrun in the other one, but I thought Da Ruler, for sure. Her race here off the layoff (May 1) was really good (a runner-up finish behind Saint Isabelle in the Time To Leave Stakes). She was way far back early, she was in the one (post position), though. She’s getting with the program now, so that’s good. She’s had hind end issues, stuff from the synthetics. No surgeries. We’ll probably go next in the (Grade II, $200,000) A Gleam (Handicap July 16).”
Notes: This was the second time Martin Garcia had a four win day at Hollywood Park. The first was Nov, 7, 2006…Baffert also won the 2006 Desert Stormer with My Miss Storm Cat.
