Mario Gutierrez (winning rider of Gomo)

“We tried to save ground in the first turn and all the way to the second turn. Down the stretch it was time to go. We didn’t mind to go a little bit wide. She responded really well; she’s been training good. She's been showing us she wants to go two turns and she proved it today.”
