Cipriano Contreras (winning trainer of Inthemidstofbiz)
“We got lucky today. She’s getting better and better. We claimed this filly (for $20,000 at Keeneland during the 2019 Fall Meet) and ran her for (a $16,000 claiming price) at Oaklawn. She started running better, and we took a shot. It worked out.”
Martin Garcia (winning rider)
“She’s a great filly. I had a really good position. When I asked her to go, she made it really easy.”
Umberto Rispoli (rider of runner-up and beaten favorite Sneaking Out.
“My trip was OK. She is the kind of filly who can have the lead if there is no one faster, but that was not the case today. I believe if she had drawn an outside (post position), the race definitely would have changed. She finished off pretty strong and I am pretty sure if I had been on the outside, the race (outcome) would be different. Post 1 is always a gamble. Outside she could dominate the other horses. Inside she was not happy.”
