"He's a special dude," McCarron said of Bienamado. "A very generous, very talented animal. He wanted it bad, but I'll tell you what, Persianlux put up a heck of a fight. I thought I had him measured at any time . . .but boy that horse kicked on too. It was a great race."
Baze, the Eclipse Award-winning apprentice of 2000, said Persianlux was gallant in defeat. "The horse ran his eyeballs out and hopefully I can win some graded stakes on him."
TYLER BAZE, PERSIANLUX, SECOND: "He ran awesome. He ran his eyes out - at first he wanted to be a little rank, then he relaxed real nice and walked right over the dirt. I was two (lengths) in front, he was nice and relaxed, going easy and he made a helluva run against Bienamado. The horse ran his eyeballs out and hopefully I can win some graded stakes on him."
Apr. 13--Persianlux is entered in the GRADE I San Juan Capistrano Handicap. It goes as the 9th at Santa Anita tomorrow. Our Man will ride the five year old horse for Wally Dollase in this $400K turf event at 14 furlongs. GOOOOOOO TYLER ^_^
