$150,000 Hurricane Bertie (G3) Quotes


Trainer Marty Wolfson (Golden Mystery): “We weren’t sure we were going to run. I sent her home (to Farnsworth Farm) for four or five days. She was going to the sale (Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Mixed Sale on Monday). When I found out Dust and Diamonds got hurt, I told the owners I wanted to bring her back for this race. That was the filly to beat.

“I think she’s a Breeders’ Cup type. She’s gotten so good. The older she gets, the better she’s gotten. She’s just happy.”

(Golden Mystery will be in the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Mixed Sale on Monday)

Jockey Luis Saez (Golden Mystery): "I felt like I would win this race because I know this mare. This is her favorite weather, too, because she has a problem sweating. Martin Wolfson told me when she is coming down the stretch to let her run. He wanted her in second or third position and that would be perfect for her. She was very easy, amazing."
