From the Santa Anita Media Team:
JOEL ROSARIO, ANOTHERTWISTAFATE, WINNER: “It was the first time with blinkers today and he broke really quick out of there. It looked like the other horse (Bob and Jackie) really wanted to go to the lead, so I had to just let it work out a little bit, let him sit off and he did, he was fine after I put him behind the other horse. He was good.
“Today having the blinkers on helped, he was more focused today. I never rode him before his last start, but he improved today.”
PETER MILLER, ANOTHERTWISTAFATE, WINNER: “The first half mile, he was a little rank, then Joel got him to settle. Joel recommended the blinkers after his last race. He made the lead and was gawking around. We wanted him to have a target (today). This is my first win for Mr. Redekop. It’s a nice way to do it, in a Grade II, $200,000. We’ll look at the Pegasus, both the turf and the dirt. The dirt is more money, but obviously, there’s tougher horses in there.”
PHIL D’AMATO, COUNT AGAIN, BETTOR FAVORITE, EASED: “Juan (Hernandez) said when he asked him, he didn’t pursue.”
NOTES: The winning owner is Peter Redekop B.C., Ltd.
