Mother Goose Quotes
Drayden Van Dyke, winning trainer of Include Betty (No.2): "It was a perfect trip. I know they were going fast up front and I knew this long stretch should really help her out, she makes that nice little last run and I knew it'd work out just perfect for her. I just had to make sure that I kept pulling my googles down so I could see where I was going. It's not too bad out there but [mud] it's sticking to your googles but it's not like sloppy or anything. I don't think she'll have any problems stretching out further, me and Tom [Proctor] were saying she's a filly that really doesn't like to be hit a whole lot so it's more just getting along with her and keeping her happy."
