JOE HERNANDEZ STAKES QUOTES-WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 1, 2020

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESFLAVIEN PRAT, WINNER:  “This is a good way to start off the New Year.  It’s nice to win a race like this for Peter.  We broke sharp and he was a little tough with me on the backside, but once I got him covered up, he dropped the bit and relaxed beautifully.  He’s a very consistent horse and at this distance, he’s really tough.”TRAINER QUOTESPETER MILLER, TEXAS WEDGE, WINNER: “When turf racing stopped in Kentucky, it was either turn him out or bring him home and we wanted to bring him home. That horse (Bay Muzik) has a lot of speed and he showed it.  My other horse Captain Scotty tracked him and I thought for a second he was going to win it but then Texas Wedge got jostled around, he broke super sharp and we didn’t want him that close. Flavien did a great job as always and got him to settle and made that run.” NOTES: The winning owners are Altamira Racing Stable, Rafter JR Ranch LLC, STD Racing Stable and Miller, A.last_img read more
