DENNIS DODGE STAKES

17th RUNNING, SEPTEMBER. 9, 2012

6F IN 1:09.25

JOCKEY LESLIE MAWING, MUSIC OF MY SOUL, WINNER: “The plan was to get him out of the gate quick to overcome the No. 1 post-position. I just wanted to let him show his talent and be competitive. When we reached the stretched, I gave him a couple taps and he spurted off. This was just a team effort.”

 

DIANE KEM STAKES

17th RUNNING, SEPTEMBER 9, 2012

6F IN 1:09.57

JOCKEY LEONEL CAMACHO-FLORES, ROVEING PATROL, WINNER: “I had a lot of confidence in her. She broke well in her workout and I just wanted her to break good today. At the quarter-pole, I couldn’t feel anybody coming. She’s a good filly and she likes to race.”

 

CHINOOK PASS STAKES

10th RUNNING, SEPTEMBER 9, 2012

ONE MILE IN 1:34.75

JOCKEY ROCCO BOWEN, MAKORS FINALE, WINNER: “We knew we’d be on the lead. Tom (Wenzel) told me not to change a thing with his running style. I didn’t expect to be able to slow the pace down so much. By the half-mile pole, he was moving so comfortably. At the head of the lane, I just opened my hands, didn’t even touch him, and he just exploded. It was a thrilling race.”

 

JOHN & KITTY FLETCHER STAKES

10th RUNNING, SEPTEMBER 2012

ONE MILE IN 1:36.33

JOCKEY JENNIFER WHITAKER, TALK TO MY LAWYER, WINNER: “I sent her out to the front a little bit to see who would go with me. Then Eliska (Kubinova) sent (River of Aces), so I decided to sit back. She drifted out, and put herself in a good spot. She ran like a monster today. I took off her last year. I learned not to do that again.”

 

BELLE ROBERTS STAKES

45th RUNNING, SEPTEMBER 9, 2012

1-1/16 MILES IN 1:41.50

JOCKEY LESLIE MAWING, CIELATOR, WINNER: “This horse has got a lot of class, a lot of talent and a big heart. I was pretty confident she’d be fine going 1-1/16 miles. She a got some quirks, but she’s a nice horse. Truthfully, I always thought she’d be a stakes horse.”

 

MUCKLESHOOT TRIBAL CLASSIC

70th RUNNING, SEPTEMBER 9, 2012

1-1/16 MILES IN 1:41.51

JOCKEY JAVIER MATIAS, KOOKY SALUKI, WINNER: “This is my first time riding him, so I looked at a couple replays and saw that he always tries really hard. At the three-eighths pole, I looked back and saw two horses coming. I started to ask him at the quarter-pole and he gave me everything. I am very impressed with his run.”
