SPEAKEASY QUOTES-SUNDAY, OCTOBER 06, 2019

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTES RUBEN FUENTES, EL TIGRE TERRIBLE, WINNER: “I had never been on this horse, not even in the morning. They were going so quick up front that he settled on his own. I saved ground at the rail and we had a dream trip. It opened up and he finished strong.”TRAINER QUOTESPETER MILLER, EL TIGRE TERRIBLE, WINNER: “I felt like one of my horses was going to win, both of them ran super and we couldn’t be prouder of the horses.“It was one of those last-minute entries it was about 10 o’clock in the morning before entries closed and I called Nick (Cosato) and said, ‘Hey, I think  we should take a shot. If I owned the horse I would do it.’ He said ‘go ahead’ and lightning struck.“He showed a lot first time on the grass he was dead last and finished with a flourish, so onward and upward. My filly Bulletproof One deserved a shot as well. She ran super but we had to check and wait and came through. A horse freaked out at the gate (Mr. Tip) next to her so she didn’t break well. I’m just really proud of the horses and my whole team and I would like to thank the owners for the opportunity.“Ruben (Fuentes) is a great young rider and a great young kid. I’ve been riding him more and with rides like this we will be riding him even more.”“Sometimes you take a shot and you win, sometimes you embarrass yourself, and sometimes you run one-two and it’s real sweet.“We’ll look at the Breeders’ Cup, absolutely ($1 million Juvenile Turf Sprint at five furlongs on Nov. 1).”     NICK COSATO, OWNER, SLAM DUNK RACING: “It’s kind of crazy. You run the favorite in the race Ginobili), then you’ve got to survive an inquiry (with El Tigre Terrible). There was a lot going on, a lot of moving parts here. We bought this horse as a yearling at Pomona with the hopes of running him grass eventually.”NOTES: The winning owners are Slam Dunk Racing or Michael Nentwig.last_img read more
