Trainer Jessica Campitelli (Mystic Love): (On running against colts) “We believed in her. It was more that we really didn’t want to go a mile and a sixteenth for her first time going two turns. So we chose to run against the boys.”
(On Elvis Trujillo’s ride) “It was excellent. He saved ground. He waited and saved ground. He rode an excellent race.”
Francis Campitelli (Maryland trainer, Mystic Love) – “We’ll go in the next filly race (Sweetest Chant, Jan. 27), because that’s also a mile, so it’ll work out good.”
Jockey Elvis Trujillo (Mystic Love): “It was a perfect trip. I saw in the program there was one horse with speed, so I sat behind. At the three-eighths pole we had a little room and it was time for us to go. This is a very nice horse.”
Jockey John Velazquez (Charming Kitten): “It was a perfect trip until I got to the quarter pole, when two horses bolted in front of me, Mystic Love got through and the race was over."
