    WASHINGTON STATE LEGISLATORS STAKES

    3-YEAR-OLDS & UP, FILLIES AND MARES

    18th RUNNING, JUNE 9, 2013

    6 ½ FURLONGS IN 1:14:88 (:22.09, :44.56, 1:08.37)

    JOCKEY JUAN GUTIERREZ, EXCLUSIVE DIVA, WINNER: “There wasn’t any difference (with the trip) from her last race. In racing, anything can happen. My filly felt good today. She handled the track better than last time. I’ve ridden this filly every time and every time she gives 100 percent. The plans changed a little bit after the break. I thought if we broke sharp we’d take the lead but I saw (Plus One) and E Z Kitty wanted to go for the lead, so I waited for the quarter-pole. She always tries hard at the quarter-pole. I think she has a second gear over there.”

    JOCKEY ANNE SANGUINETTI, E Z KITTY, SECOND: “This race set up exactly like the Hastings. I thought we were in good shape. I don’t know if it was because it was a little warmer today but she just wasn’t quite as strong. It wasn’t like we got beat by a bad horse today. I think they are great rivals for each other. One of them will get the better of the other one on one day and then it will go the other way the next day. I’m not disappointed in E Z Kitty at all. She made it a good race.”
