$250,000 Davona Dale (G2) Quotes
Trainer Mark Hennig (Live Lively): “I figured she’d fall out of there (and go to the lead) it was just a matter if somebody was going to go with here. She’s got a good turn of foot and she’s never showed us any lack of stamina. I figured if they tried to run with here it might have been a tall task. I was pleased. She couldn’t have prepared any better for this and I was expecting a big race out of her.
Jockey Joel Rosario (Live Lively): "She did it so easily. I was in front the whole way just trying to save some for the end. I wasn't sure about the distance, but she looks like she looks like she can do anything. Every time she looks better and better and keeps improving. I'm very happy with her."
Trainer Todd Pletcher (Dreaming of Julia): "I thought she ran extremely well. We were sort of at the mercy of the pace scenario, so I think we had to take her out of her comfort zone earlier than we wanted to and keep some pressure on the winner. The winner was too good and we were just second best today. I was very happy with it, for her first start since the Breeder's Cup and spotting six pounds to some quality fillies, I thought it was a very good effort off the layoff."
