Del Mar Juvenile Fillies Turf

SASHA RISENHOOVER (Terra’s Angel, winner) – “This is so special. Words can’t begin to tell. This is the most special race I’ve ever been involved in in my life. My first win in California; $100,000; I just don’t know what to say. I’ve believed in this filly since day one. Knowing the story behind her (named for a mother of three in Texas who had brain cancer; she got to see this filly break her maiden and then died a few days later), it just put a fire in me. I wanted to win on her so much. She is so special. And so is this.”
COREY NAKATANI (One Fast Broad, second) – “We only wanted to make one run with her. She’s only had the one race (winning a maiden sprint here on August 4), so we didn’t want to do too much with her. But we switched her over to grass today and she did fine.”
TYLER BAZE (Multiplayer, third) – “Good race for her. She ran great.”
DALLAS KEEN (Terra’s Angel, winner) – “Sasha (Risenhoover) told me she wanted to be laying there close and this has been her filly from day one. The filly runs good for her and it’s a good matchup. We were having kind of a rough meet other than the third in the Sorrento (with Terra’s Angel). This is a nice one to wind up with. We had a good meet.”
