RAFAEL BEJARANO, SHOW IT N MOE IT, WINNER: “She always tries really hard and she always wants to be on the lead. This was the first time she’s ever had to be on the inside though and she freaked out a little being out on the lead down inside. She started to lug out but I didn’t want to try and fight with her too much. I wanted to play it by ear and as we came to the turn she was calming down and going back to the rail. As we did though, the three, S Y Sky, was coming through on the rail which wasn’t what I wanted but I also finally was getting us where I wasted us to be, on the outside. She’s always had an outside position so once that horse was down to her inside, it was good. In the stretch she fought and came back strong. She did a very good job today. I had to work a little harder on her today. In the beginning I had to use her a bit and I think six and-a-half or seven furlongs are better distances for her, but she still got it done.”
