JOCKEY ROCCO BOWEN, STOPSHOPPINGDEBBIE, WINNER: “Well, today she showed us that she is the real deal. I figured I was going to get packed a little wide, so I just tried to be patient and talk to her the whole way. When I asked her if she was ready to go, she responded. I said you know what, if they are going to try to run and catch me, then I’m going to run them off their feet, and no one was coming. I don’t even think I got her into second gear.”
JOCKEY GALLYN MITCHELL, MADAME PELE, SECOND: "We were hoping to send 'Debbie shopping but we ran into a great horse. My filly had a great trip. She broke well, settled in, and found a hole when the pacesetter fanned out at the top of the stretch. She really ran her eyeballs out, there was just no beating 'Debbie."
