Trainer Victor Barboza Jr. (Distinta, 1st) – “My first graded stakes [win] in the United States. I won 28 graded stakes in Venezuela. The mare came into my barn for a new owner on May 28 [last year].”

"I told [jockey John Velazquez] to watch the replay of her last race. No more. Johnny is very smart.”

(Possible next race -- Humana Distaff (G1) at Churchill Downs May 7.)

Jockey John Velazquez (Distinta, 1st) – “I warmed her up pretty good. I wanted to be closer to the horses up front. It worked out really well. When I asked her down the lane, she responded really good. I saw her the last time and it looked like she was too far back. She had to make up too much ground.”

Jockey Luis Saez (Curlin’s Approval, 5th) – “She was flat. She broke; she was trying; but she was flat and couldn’t get there.
