Jockey Quotes:

Florent Geroux — Turnerloose (1st):

“She was pulling on me pretty much all of the race, she wanted to go. So by the turn, she just kept on going. She was on a mission: she just wanted to take it to them, which was great.”

Joel Rosario — Yin Yang (2nd):

“The break, she was very excited there, and didn’t get out of there real quickly. But she did everything good, and she came running. She’s nice, the other horse just got a jump on her. I’m very excited with the way she ran.”

Trainer Quotes:

Jorje Abrego (Assistant to Brad Cox) — Turnerloose / Yin Yang (1-2):

“Both are very good fillies. I said last week that I liked both fillies, that I thought I’d go 1-2 in the race. Turnerloose looked like ‘turn her loose’ today. She ran well. Yin Yang ran a very good second, so it was very good day for the team.:

(Question: Turnerloose ran fast early, looked like she was getting tired leg-weary)

“This was big for her. Now she’s a stakes-winner. Now is the time to look for a graded stakes. We’ll see how she is tomorrow, and if everything is good, maybe get her ready for Keeneland. Yin Yan just got beat on what, today, was a better horse.)

(Question: Florent Geroux, who missed opening day riding at Saratoga, was very happy to win a race and beat Joel Rosario)

“He’s happy. He’s always a team player, for the team.”

(Question: Do you tell Cox, ‘You can stay in New York, we’ve got things under control?’)

“Oh no, no, no. I’m always under him. He’s my boss and my buddy and I’m happy to do anything for him.”
