From the Santa Anita Media Team:
JUAN HERNANDEZ, GREGORIAN CHANT, WINNER: “Phil told me don’t change his style. It looked like there was plenty of speed and there was. The race set up good for us. Turning for home, I had a lot of horse and he just exploded. He passed those other horses pretty easy.”
PHILIP D’ AMATO, GREGORIAN CHANT, WINNER: “I gotta give Nick Cosato (Slam Dunk Racing) a lot of credit. He thought of this after his last race. Just remembering what a big turn of foot he had from when we bought him, we thought it was worth a try. Juan fits this horse really well. Actually his brother, Jonathan, gallops him in the morning, so it’s kind of a little family affair there. Juan has a special touch there with him and gets everything out of him.”
NOTES: The winning owners are Slam Dunk Racing, Old Bones Racing Stable LLC and Michael Nentwig.
