Quotes from the $250,000 Thoroughbred Club of America (G2)

December 10, 2019

Will Farish (winning co-owner of Irish Jasper) “She’d won two Grade 3s, but this race was a big thing for us. A big thing to have it here at home. Julien (Leparoux) rode a hell of a race, particularly from the eighth pole where he had to make that move. Going that fast, it’s pretty tough.”

On whether Irish Jasper’s connections will take advantage of the “Win and You’re In” berth to the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint (G1)

“We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”

Julien Leparoux (winning rider)

“It was a little scary at the beginning. I thought she was going to break a little bit better. After that, she traveled very good and we got through on the rail. She made a big run.”

Paco Lopez (rider of runner-up Stonetastic)

“I love the position of my filly. Today she cost me a little in the first jump and the second jump. Seemed like she was easy in the first quarter (:21.84), a little fast in the second (quarter fraction). Then I stayed right there. I knew the 1 (Irish Jasper) was coming. I was waiting for the 5 (Bendable) but the 1 came on.”  

Jose Ortiz (rider of third-place finisher Bendable)

“I stuck with the plan to stay off of Stonetastic and at the quarter pole I went after her because she was the favorite. My filly gave me a good run from the quarter pole to the wire. She never gave up on me and I'm very happy the way she ran.”

Robby Albarado (rider of fourth-place finisher I’m a Looker)

“I had a good trip. Turning for home I thought I had a chance to beat them. She put me right in position where I needed to be. It was a really good race. You’ll see these horses in the Breeders’ Cup. These are the fastest fillies in the country. I expected her to run big. She ran huge.”
