Sr. Quisqueyano went right to the lead under jockey Carlos Olivero and set an unpressured pace around the first turn and along the backstretch. Csaba made his run at the lead, but the pacesetter had plenty of energy in reserve and pulled away to an easy victory.
“Two turns helps this horse a lot. I was concerned when I ran him a (one-turn Montbrook S. on Sept. 14) mile the other day. He relaxes more when he goes two turns,” trainer Luis Olivares said. “When I saw (fractions of) :24 and :47, I knew they were dead. I knew how he was training. He was training real well.”
Olivares said that the $150,000 Millions Classic Preview, at 1 1/16 miles at Gulfstream on Nov. 9, is a likely spot for Sr. Quisqueyano’s next start.
With the $60,000 payday, Sr. Quisqueyano has now earned $479,150 from a mark of 6-4-1 in 16 starts for his owner DDRD Racing Inc.
