OHN VELAZQUEZ, jockey of Malathaat (First) – “She didn’t get away the best, but I got a spot with her. She was running well and when I turned for home I had a target (Search Results) to send her after. We got up next to her and my filly went by. Then she waited a bit; she does that. The other filly came back but I could tell I was still in control. I never thought I was going to do anything but win.”
