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.”

David Donk, winning trainer of Vision Perfect (No. 4): "It was a very gutsy, game performance off the layoff. He didn't have to win, but we're pretty pleased that he did. He's matured and filled out a bit [since his 2-year-old season], which is nice to see. It's been a little bit of a tough spring because of the weather, but he's trained well. The horses that came up from Florida probably had a little bit of an edge, but kudos to [Vision Perfect]."
