BOB BAFFERT, CALLBACK, WINNER, AND MAYBELLENE, EIGHTH: “We’ve always been pretty high on her. They were high on her when they sent her in. I wanted to run one-two. My other filly (Maybellene), she just didn’t kick today.“You train them for two turns; I knew she was going to be forwardly placed and she worked really well coming into it. I thought her last race was really good. She was a little bit intimidated down in the one hole and with the blinkers. The first time I ran her, she was the heavy favorite, she didn’t run well, but I think she bounced.“It was nice to get a win for Wayne Hughes. He couldn’t make it today. He was ill with a little cold (in Malibu). Yeah (the Santa Anita Oaks, Grade I, $400,000, 1 1/16 miles on April 4) would be considered, unless the earth moves or something.” KENT DESORMEAUX, LIGHT THE CITY, SECOND: “In hindsight maybe I should have switched posts with the winner, then they might have been taking my picture. I think that situation might have been the difference. With that being said I couldn’t be more proud of her; she ran an incredible race. I’m thinkin’ she’s got a few Grade I’s with her name on them.”RAFAEL BEJARANO, MAYBELLENE, EIGHTH: “She broke really good from the gate. I was right behind the speed and I followed the winner. I had a perfect trip, but at the three-eighths (marker), I was done. I didn’t have enough horse.”TRAINER QUOTES NOTES: The winning owner is B. Wayne Hughes of Lexington, Ky., and Malibu, CA, who races as Spendthrift Farm, LLC. This is Baffert’s fourth Las Virgenes win–Excellent Meeting, 1999; Composure, 2003; and Eden’s Moon, 2012. JOCKEY QUOTES -30- MARTIN GARCIA, CALLBACK, WINNER: “I was just cruising all the way around there. I asked her a little going into the far turn and then again when Light the City came back at us, she took off. There was no way they were going to go by us.“I don’t see why stretching out further would be any problem; she’s a good filly. She can do anything you want.”
