Winning Trainer: Danny O'Brien (Beth Schoen speaking)
On the mare: "This horse is really in a purple patch of form in her career, she's won three of her last four starts and she keeps getting stronger and stronger - we couldn't be happier with her and she really ran the mile out today.
On stablemate Pitchanun: "She ran a really good race, she probably just got a little too far back but was coming home strong.
Winning Jockey: Jamie Kah
On consecutive wins: "She relaxed lovely today and then from the 600 (metres) I couldn't hold her much longer and probably had to expose her a bit too early but the stable had her fit and she was spot on today and too tough once again.
On winning in the Rosemont colours: "I get along really great with Mitho (Anthony Mithen) and the boys - their a great bunch of people and great to ride winners for and also for Danny , I was a bit unlucky on his horse earlier but hopefully this makes up for it.
