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.”

Woodhaven Quotes


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]."

Distaff (G2) Quotes


Linda Rice, winning trainer of La Verdad (No. 4): "I wasn't happy when I saw [Aireofdistinction] coming after her early, and they were going pretty fast. I was a little concerned that was going to make it a real test on her fitness, but her ability is the key. She's got a lot of talent and is able to overcome that. I can only hope that she comes back and races as well as she has the last year and a half for us. I had her in training for quite a long time without a vacation, and after the Fall Highweight I decided to turn her out for a couple months; she deserved it."
