Quotes from the $200,000 Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix

December 10, 2019

Richard Papiese (who bred and owns winner Work All Week with his wife, Karen, in the name of Midwest Thoroughbreds Inc.)

On whether Work All Week will race in the $1.5 million Xpressbet Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1)

“We’ll see how he comes out of this, and if he comes out good, then yes, we’ll go to California. (He) loves dirt – has never lost on dirt.”

Florent Geroux (winning jockey)

“Had a great trip. Really liked the post going into the race, being outside like this with a lot of speed. So I could see what was going to happen inside. If we have to go, we go. If not, we can sit off (the pace) like I just did. My horse, he loves to win. He’s 11 for 14 now. He’s a very special horse. He’s run some big races before, and today he proved now he’s probably the best sprinter in the country.”

Luis Saez (rider of runner-up C. Zee)

“We had the inside post and he’s fast, but the race had a lot of speed so I kind of followed the speed. When we came to the three-eighths pole I asked and he responded, but the winner was too far in front.”

Paco Lopez (rider of third-place finisher Bern Identity)

“I don’t know if he would have won it, but I think he would have been second with a better post position.”

Ricardo Santana Jr. (rider of fourth-place finisher Lemon Drop Dream)

“He just didn’t break.”
