I hand rode him and he’s so game.  He likes to win.”HAS HE EVER WON SIX RACES IN A ROW ON ONE HORSE?  “Yes, in Brazil.”TRAINER QUOTESDEAN PEDERSON, FASHIONABLY FAST, WINNER: “His last couple of works, Tiago has worked hard on getting him to relax in the first part but still finish. To me that was the key of the race today. If he relaxed, he gave himself a chance.  If he didn’t relax you get back to the barn and get the bathwater ready.“He’s just confident, mature and he has always had talent, but he was his own worst enemy early on.”JOHN HARRIS, HARRIS FARMS LLC, FASHIONABLY FAST, WINNER: “Any win is a thrill for us but this one in particular is gratifying because I don’t think we have ever won six in a row. Or four stakes in a row. He’s a game horse that just doesn’t want another horse to get in front of him.“When he started running he looked like he was gonna be a nice horse all the way, but he didn’t really stand out as a baby. He’s very typical of Lucky Pulpit, he’s a smooth looking horse. We had another horse win six in a row, but we’ve never had a horse win four stakes in a row. You always hope they progress…I didn’t know if he’d go a mile or not.  When he sees the horses around him, he wants to win.  Dean’s done a tremendous job with him.”NOTES:  The winning owners are Harris Farms, Inc. Per Antonsen or John Nicoletti.last_img
