19th RUNNING, JUNE 15, 2014
ONE MILE IN STAKES RECORD 1:34.15
JOCKEY LESLIE MAWING, STRYKER PHD, WINNER: "We’ve been training him just how we wanted him to run today. We wanted him to come from off the pace. I knew there was going to be a lot of speed today. All I needed to do was lie off the pace and make one big run. As long as this horse has something to run at, he’s going to give you 150 percent. Hopefully, we have a lot more wins by the end of the season.”
JOCKEY DAVID G. LOPEZ, MR. BOWLING, SECOND: "I like the horse very much. He ran well. We had a perfect trip. The instructions were to try to stay close and we did that. The horse that won ran a good race, we were just outrun."
JOCKEY JUAN GUTIERREZ, JEBRICA, 3.20-TO-1 FAVORITE, FOURTH:
"We had a good trip, can't complain about that. We had room to run, he did everything right, tried hard. He was moving well at the end. It was a very competitive group of horses."
