RUBEN ALVARADO, ASSISTANT TO WINNING TRAINER PETER MILLER, LEUCOTHEA, WINNER: “We were not frightened about her leaving the gate as of late (regarding her unseating her jockey initially of the Grade I Chandelier Stakes on Sept. 27). Day after today, she appeared wonderful and she or he walked for a couple of days after that and the entirety used to be just right. It used to be nice to get Abel again on her as of late, he is aware of her rather well.”
JEFF HAYES, OWNER, LEUCOTHEA, WINNER: “My brother named the pony she’s through Midshipman and Leucothea is a sea goddess so he concept, hiya, that is a just right identify. I used to be frightened about it however he confident me that the pony makes the identify. She had some bother at Elis (July 4, 2019) and did not damage smartly, she took up on the 3/eighth pole and once more within the stretch, so we knew she may run somewhat bit however I by no means concept she may win like this. It used to be tricky coming in as of late as a result of we received so simply at Del Mar (August 8, 2019), then we did so badly within the Chandelier Stakes (Sept. 27). I believe we bounced and dropped the jockey, so we did not know precisely what we had, however as of late is a greater indication.
“We’re more than pleased.”
