Go For Wand Handicap Quotes (G3)

Carlos Santamaria, assistant to winning trainer Simon Callaghan of Taris (No. 4): "It was a pretty good trip, she deserved this kind of trip after the last two races she had, but she was ready today. A good win for her, she deserved it."

Simon Callaghan winning trainer of Taris (No. 4): via telephone: "She got a perfect trip. She did it very well. It was a nice race with a solid field and we're glad she performed today. Gary [Stevens] was dehydrated and we ended up with Joel who's also a terrific rider and I was pleased with his performance. There's a race in February at Santa Anita where she's likely to enter next but nothing's set in stone."

Joel Rosario, winning jockey aboard Taris (No. 4): "She's a nice filly, she just wants to keep going. I looked at the form, saw her running style and I had an idea what she'd like to do, what she wouldn't like to do. I watched replays and all that, so I was very confident. I watched her last time when she ran in the Breeders' Cup. She's a nice horse."

"I tried to get off the rail a little bit, just let her build a little confidence. She looked like she was really happy in the middle of the track, so I just let her be. She knew exactly what she liked to do."

"I could've been on the lead, I just didn't want to let her go too quick probably. The horse on the inside looked like she wanted the lead, so I thought I should go with him [Luis Saez, aboard Spelling Again (No. 3)] so we wouldn't go too fast, just sit a little bit behind him, let him set up the pace and come again."
