$75,000 SURFSIDE STAKES
TYLER BAZE (Winner, Uptown Twirl): "(Trainer) John (Sadler) told me she's a free-running filly who likes a dogfight. She fought all the way down the stretch like a trooper."
JOHN SADLER (Winner, Uptown Twirl): "She didn't like the turf last time (when fifth in the Sweet Life Stakes Feb. 14 at Santa Anita). She was stakes placed once already (second in the Anoakia last Oct. 11), but she's been a little in and out. We've had high hopes for her, so it was kind of important for her to get a stakes win. She had been training well and showed some tenacity today. I told (jockey) Tyler (Baze) she would fight back if challenged."
