Santa Anita Stakes Quotes TYLER BAZE, SUPER HIGH, WINNER: “She gave me everything she had. She’s a hard-trying filly. I’m glad Carla (Gaines) let me ride her again. I thought I got beat the last two jumps. I was (bleeped). Galloping out I said, ‘Victor, God-ding it, you had to beat me again by a nose!’ I thought I got beat the last two jumps. But she tries so hard. I’ve ridden her twice and both times she just gives her all and guts it out. A horse comes to her and she don’t want him to go by her, man. She’s an awesome filly to ride.”
