JOE TALAMO, HER EMMYNENCY, WINNER: â€œMike (Stidham, trainer) and his assistant Chris (Davis), theyâ€™ve done such a great job with her, getting her ready. Really, ever since she broke her maiden they were pointing for the Del Mar Debutante and then this so (it was) a plan well-executed. Iâ€™m so glad Iâ€™ve been able to get on her in the mornings. Iâ€™ve been working her since Del Mar. Sheâ€™s a very classy filly, so professional. She doesnâ€™t act like sheâ€™s only two. Iâ€™ve seen her turn of foot in the mornings so I was confident that she would get a mile or more.â€
RAFAEL BEJARANO, SHEâ€™S COMPLETE, SECOND: â€œShe was a little bit shy, a little bit green and I lost a lot of ground, but with a big field and these babies, I didnâ€™t want to get her stopped. Weâ€™re really happy with the way she ran.â€ TRAINER QUOTES
MICHAEL STIDHAM, HER EMMYNENCY, WINNER: Mentioned she saved ground: â€œYeah, he (Joe Talamo) just kind of waited and that was good for her because it was her first time around two turns and we wanted to get her to relax and finish.
NOTES: Winning owners Ike and Dawn Thrash are from Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
