SILVERBULLETDAY QUOTES


Robby Albarado (jockey, winner Unbridled Forever): “She is a phenomenal filly. She’s got a lot of buttons to her. Dallas has been very high on her from the start. I’ve never gotten on her in the mornings, only in the three races. She’s been exceptional every race. I’d like to congratulate Mr. Fipke. He’s done a lot for racing and deserves one like this. I don’t feel like we know the depth of her yet. Obviously a nice filly today, Larry Jones filly, hung in there tough. I think there is more to her.
