JOCKEY QUOTESGEOVANNI FRANCO, LIEUTENANT DAN, WINNER: “We broke really well and the key was to get good position. There was a lot of speed and the 8 horse (Tap the Wire) was outside of me. When it was time to go, my horse responded really well and we just took off.”TIAGO PEREIRA, PRINCIPE CARLO, SECOND: “My main concern was to break well, and I had planned on being on the front end but my horse broke in a tangle. I had a great stalking position just outside the leaders turning for home, but the 7 kicked clear and went on with it.” TRAINER QUOTESSTEVE MIYADI, TRAINER, LIEUTENANT DAN, WINNER: “He’s still a work in progress. His last race at Golden Gate (5 ½ furlong allowance win on March 23) helped him, no question. He’s still slow to change leads, not in the morning, but in the afternoon; we’ve got some work to do. I was very happy to get Geo (Geovanni Franco) back on him. We go way back together, to Golden Gate.”OWNER QUOTESNICK ALEXANDER, LIEUTENANT DAN, WINNER: “It was a very salty race for a first condition up at Golden Gate; every horse had a legitimate chance. The first thing Steve asked was how far is it to the Echo Eddie Stakes, I said 16 days which seemed a little short but we just jogged him into it to see how he was doing, and you can see him in the paddock he was jumping around for the first time in his life like he wanted to do it. In the walking ring he kind of took off on the groom. Once they tried to put the jock up he acted like a new horse. The name comes from the movie Forest Gump it’s one of my favorite movies. I’ve seen it 20 times.” NOTES: The winning owner/breeder is Nick Alexander.Nick Alexander’s Lieutenant Dan and jockey Geovanni Franco win the $200,000 Echo Eddie Stakes, Saturday, April 6, 2019 at Santa Anita Park, Arcadia CA. © BENOIT PHOTO

Source: Charge Forward Perhaps the most compelling detail from Tesla’s quarterly report yesterday was the company’s claim that Model 3 is now the highest revenue generating car model in the US. Similarly, Apple has long touted that despite some competitors having higher volumes, the iPhone is responsible for the vast majority of profits in the smartphone industry. Given the Model 3’s high gross margins, it seems likely that it is also the highest profit generating car model in the US.So with Model 3 having its “iPhone moment,” a comparison between these disruptive silicon valley companies is more appropriate than ever. What other similarities can we find between their respective stories? more…The post The parallel stories of Tesla and Apple, as Model 3 has its ‘iPhone Moment’ appeared first on Electrek.
