GARRETT GOMEZ, LOVE THEWAY YOUARE, Winner: “When we first came off the bend, she switched leads and dropped in front of the other horses. I lost (Include Me Out) because she quickened and I didn’t know if I could get to her. Then as I got by a couple of those other horses, I could see that horse starting to come back a little bit and I said, ‘Well, I think I have her now.’ This filly just keeps staying and she did so again today. She kept coming and coming. She doesn’t have any kind of gear, she’s just one-paced the whole time.”
JOE TALAMO, INCLUDE ME OUT, Second: “I thought I was gone. She has a kind of tendency to pull herself up. You know, when I passed (Caelis and Atlantic Swing), I really thought the race was over. We’ve always beat (Love Theway You are) so far, so many times. In hindsight, I wish I would have waited a little longer. Every time I’ve ridden her I’ve always tried to steal the race at the quarter pole. That’s a brutal way to get beat in a Grade I.”
MARIA AYALA (Assistant Trainer, Myung Kwon Cho), LOVE THEWAY YOUARE, Winner:“(Cho) couldn’t be here today because he’s at his son Raxon’s high school graduation. I told Garrett (Gomez) to watch the replays of this horse before the race and he said ‘OK, I got it now.’ The doctor checked her out last time (after she bobbled and lost rider Alonso Quinonez in the Marjorie L. Everett Handicap May 19) and he said there was no problem. She’s been training really well.”
RON ELLIS, INCLUDE ME OUT, Second: “She moved too early. He (Talamo) got a little too confident. Carrying that weight and everything. She pulls herself up when she gets to the lead, too. She did it last time. What are you going to do? That’s the way it goes.”
