first_imgNOTES: The winning owners are Iavarone, Arntz or McClanahan, et al.      TIM YAKTEEN, MUCHO UNUSUAL, SECOND: “We’re really proud of her. A nice filly won the race, and you know, that’s horse racing. It would have been nice to end on a great win. The mare has been very good to us. We are looking forward to the next ones coming up.”     JERRY MCLANAHAN, PART OWNER OF LADY PRANCEALOT:  “It’s been an exciting year with this filly.  We couldn’t ask for anymore…To end the year with a Grade I, this is the ultimate.” JOCKEY QUOTES JOE BRAVO, LADY PRANCEALOT, WINNER:” I was just glad to be sitting on Lady Prancealot this afternoon. I take my hat off to Richard and his team. She was so relaxed post break, so turned off and relaxed like she had full control over the whole race. All I had to do was point her to the hole turning for home and she took me through. She made my job easy. If she was a fat horse she would have never made it.“Knowing a horse is always key, and the more information you can have, the better. Last time at Keeneland, she really took the lead too early, so I know the type of horse to point her at. I give Richard all the credit. Before the race I told him, ‘She’s walking over here like a winner.’”(On the traffic down the stretch): “I was kind of following Joel on the 3 (Mucho Unusual). It gave me a nice target to follow. I was planning on going outside of him but when he came out, it kind of made my decision easier, and we pulled through.”TRAINER QUOTES     RICHARD BALTAS, LADY PRANCEALOT, WINNER: “This filly came over here from Europe and the first time she worked she had an issue and we gave her a bunch of time. We thought we bought a bad horse but we didn’t. She has been ultra-consistent. I want to give a hats off to the guys at San Luis Rey Downs, my assistant trainer who has had her there most of the time. “Jersey Joe” rode an awesome race and we are all happy now.” last_img read more
