Quotes from the $250,000 Dixiana Elkhorn (G2)


Sandy Adkins (assistant to Gerry Aschinger, winning trainer of Dramedy)

On the decision to run Dramedy at 1½ miles for the first time
“Every time he’s run, he’s closed at the end and been hard to pull up after going a mile, a mile and a sixteenth. So a mile and a half was perfect. When they said the mile went in 1:40, I said, ‘Oh my gosh. We’ve got this.’ Because I knew (jockey Joe Bravo would) have a ton of horse, and he did.”

On Dramedy having found a niche at 1½-mile races
“Absolutely. I wish they wrote them more often.”

Quotes from the $300,000 Jenny Wiley (G1)


Chad Brown (winning trainer of Ball Dancing)

On rival Filimbi making move around the far turn to challenge Ball Dancing
“I could tell (jockey) Javier (Castellano) really didn’t want to move at that point but luckily (with) his great instincts he felt them coming and put (Filimbi) wider than us. He gave the filly a great trip. She’s a wonderful horse to train, steadily improved. What a big win for (co-owners) Mr. (Will) Farish and Mr. (Steve) Mooney. They’re both here, and we’re thrilled.
