CHANTAL SUTHERLAND, M ONE RIFLE, Winner—“He did everything perfect. I felt with him I didn’t have to be on the lead. With so much speed in there, I was going to see from the gate what was going to happen. He kicked in so hard on the turn, I fell back in the saddle a touch. It was like, wow, what great acceleration. When it all works out, it’s a nice thing.”
BRUCE HEADLEY, M ONE RIFLE, Winner: -“Before his last race he had been off a long time and he set blistering fractions and just got tired. That set him up for this race. I usually don’t tell a rider anything because you never know how it’s going to come up. If I would have said something, I would have told her to be on the lead and I’d have been way off on this one. She’s (Chantal Sutherland) a great, great rider. We’ll point for the ($100,000) Los Angeles Handicap (May 30) next.”
Notes: This was the first stakes win for Sutherland at Hollywood Park since she won the 2008 Generous aboard Mr. Rod.
