STEWART ELLIOTT, ACCEPTANCE, WINNER: “He ran really game. He’s a nice horse. He’s got ability and he tries. He’s pretty quick himself, but that was a good post. I knew the horse; I rode him last time, Kenny said he’d put me right up there or be very close and that was it.”
KENNY BLACK, ACCEPTANCE, WINNER: “He was tough today. I thought they had him two or three times, but he just dug in. You’ve got to be proud of him. He really showed a lot of heart today. Strategy? I just told Stewart to meet me in the Winner’s Circle. I was pretty straightforward. The draw was really the key to it. I don’t even want to think about what race might be next. I want to give him more time between races.”
NOTES: The winning owners are Robert Samuel Riggio of Chino (Finish Line Racing, LLC) and the Ellwood Johnson Family Trust of Rancho Cucamonga.
