first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESMIKE SMITH, MIRTH, WINNER: “That was awesome. He (Javier Castellano) got in front of me, but she dug back in. I feel great and can’t wait for the next one. Let’s see if we can do it again.“There was a little more pace than I expected but that was fine because that helped me. If it had been just one horse going out there on the lead, then I probably would have had to go early to press him. But this way, I just got to sit and wait and move when I wanted.”JAVIER CASTELLANO, TINY TINA, SECOND: “I knew it could go either way and it would just come down to the bob. She ran a great race – everything she did, she did in the right way. She gave it a good run, and I’m not disappointed at all. We just got beat.”TRAINER QUOTESPHIL D’AMATO, MIRTH, WINNER TINY TINA SECOND: “It may have been Mike Smith’s plan (sitting far back), but I thought we would be sitting second maybe, not that far back (second to last. But Mike is a Hall of Famer so he figured it out.“Today she showed a good dimension against good horses so I think at the end of the day she wants to go further than a mile and eighth. This was a good stepping stone today.”NOTES: The winning owner is Little Red Feather Racing.last_img read more
