MATT GARCIA, JIMMY O: "He got an easy lead and finished strong."
DAVID LACROIX: "He made a pretty easy lead, going :21 and 3 (the first
quarter) and there was nobody with him. They left him out there alone, he got
a little breather, and finished good."
NOTE: This was Garcia's third stakes win this meet. He also won the Phil D.
Shepherd with Sigreto and the E.B. Johnston with Bold Mango. LaCroix
indicated if the horse is all right, he'll look at the Gateway to Glory
Stakes (on Sept. 26).
