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.”

“We thought we had a chance to get out there and control the race. Luis did a great job. The big mare (Untapable) came to her and we got the better of her today. Of course it was her first race of the year, but our mare got her nose down. It was an exciting race.”
