Azeri Quotes

Trainer Donnie K. Von Hemel, winner Gold Medal Dancer – “It's very exciting and the mare just ran a huge race. Thanks to Pin Oak (Stud) and my entire staff. It was a team effort and I am thrilled to death. We had a chance to go out and control the pace and Luis did a great job. She went out and controlled the pace. She fought off the champion and she showed a lot of heart. The big mare came through and got her nose down on the wire. It's sure a possibility that we'll be back for the Apple Blossom.”
