From the Santa Anita Media Team:
FLAVIEN PRAT, AS TIME GOES BY, WINNER: “I got myself in the race and she was travelling super well and ran great down the lane. She settled nice and she had a nice target all the way around, and when it was time to make her run she was there for me.”
BOB BAFFERT, AS TIME GOES BY, WINNER: “This filly keeps getting better and better with age. I’m really excited. She has always been a barn favorite of mine. She’s got that American Pharoah temperament. They seem to be late bloomers and she is getting better all the time. I am expecting big things from her from here. She will stay here, and I think the Grade I Beholder would be next for her.”
MICHAEL TABOR, PART OWNER, AS TIME GOES BY, WINNER: “It’s very enjoyable. I didn’t expect such a win that easily. I was hoping she would win, she duly did, and she like it. A very easy win.
“Santa Anita is a great facility, fantastic view, everything you could wish for in a racetrack and when you’re here and want to bring somebody to the races that has never been to the races, it’s a pleasure to bring them here.”
NOTES: The winning owners are Mrs. John Magnier, Michael B. Tabor and Derrick Smith.
