Trainer James Jerkens (House Rules): “It’s great. It [graded-stakes win] always helps her value and she’s well bred on top of it. Every little bit helps.

“All of her races here in Florida have been terrific. The races here with my father [Hall of Fame trainer Allen Jerkens] were as good as she’s running now. We just have to get her to duplicate them in New York.

“I don’t know what’s next. She probably won’t run here again. We’ll look for something back home in New York. I’m not one to look too far ahead.

[On inquiry] “The pan shot looked worse. After watching the head-on, I wasn’t worried. I don’t think she came in much and it looked like the horse on the inside [Wedding Toast] came out a little and the jockey was hitting left-handed and she came out half a horse.”

Jockey Javier Castellano (House Rules): “I had a beautiful trip. I had to go wide a little bit around the turn and it cost me a couple lengths, but I didn’t have a choice. I used my own judgment and it worked out great. At the top of the stretch I tried to switch leads and all three horses were there together. I didn’t come in at all, I just tried to switch leads with my horse and finally she did. I didn’t realize that horse (Sheer Drama) was still there but still I was clear and in front of the other horses.”

Note: This was the 14th stakes win of the Championship Meet for Javier Castellano, and ninth graded
