JOCKEY QUOTESTIAGO PEREIRA, THE HUNTED, WINNER: “I worked him the other day and he worked really good. I’ve never ridden him in a race, but I looked at his last two races and it looked like he was running against good horses. Today, the pace seemed good for him and he was comfortable. When I pushed him out at the quarter pole, he took off.”TRAINER QUOTESRICHARD BALTAS, THE HUNTED, WINNER: “The horse has been training good. He was a little unlucky; he was too far back last time. This is stakes company, against Cal-breds…it was a good race and a great ride (by Tiago Pereira). I’m very happy for all the connections. He was nice and relaxed down the backside. I think the rider did a really good job on him.”OWNER QUOTESGARY FENTON, LITTLE RED FEATHER RACING, PART OWNER OF THE HUNTED: “This couldn’t have set up any better if we had drawn it up. It set up perfect and Tiago rode a perfect race. He followed instructions and it worked out.”BILLY KOCH, THE HUNTED, WINNER: “It was perfect. Tiago did such a great job, Richie Baltas and his staff did such a nice job with this horse. He was really troubled in the beginning of his career and they brought him along and were really patient and it is a credit to our owners at Little Red Feather, Richard and Vanessa. People like this allow us to be patient and do the right thing.”PARTNERS OF LITTLE RED FEATHER RACING, THE HUNTED, WINNER: “It’s a dream winning a stakes race at Santa Anita, it’s an absolute dream. What Billy said, where this horse has come from in exactly one year ago today, all credit goes to Richie and his team; he’s a dream maker.”MADELINE AUERBACH, PART OWNER, THE HUNTED: “Unusual Heat (the late sire of The Hunted) is the gift that keeps on giving.”NOTES: The winning owners are Madeline Auerbach LLC, Ciaglia Racing LLC & Little Red Feather Racing.
