CALIFORNIA CUP TURF SPRINT STAKES QUOTES-SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 2019

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESMARIO GUTIERREZ, LISTING, WINNER:  “I think being on the outside today helped him a lot, he was more comfortable, you know no pressure last time he did a little step before crossing the wire so I think that caused him that extra bow but today it was good.”“That was the plan from the beginning. I think he might have got the nose in the wire and today on the outside with no pressure, I think it helped him a lot.“Everywhere I’ve been I get people like Paul Reddam so through ups and downs I know people like him will have my back 100 percent, which gives me a lot of confidence.“Oh it’s always great. For me and for Paul it’s great. I think I’ve been extremely lucky.”TRAINER QUOTES BEN CECIL, LISTING, WINNER: “It was a bit closer than I hoped, but he may have gotten a little tired. I didn’t give Mario any instructions. He knows the horse. He had a good effort last time down the hill and we had given him a little break prior to that, which he probably needed. Maybe now he’ll improve even a bit more.”Asked how many horses he trains for Paul Reddam: “I’m pretty much all Paul. I have about 10 for him and he’s kept me alive. He’s been a good owner.”NOTES: The winning owner is Reddam Racing LLC.last_img read more
