DRAYDEN VAN DYKE, RONALD R, WINNER: “I told Ron (Ellis) that there is plenty of speed in here and it sets up well for us on paper. I had a rather smooth trip and I had alota horse. I had to back him up a little when we got to the inside, but once we peeled outside he made it easy and he had a nice turn of foot. He did the same thing in his last two races at Del Mar.”
RONALD ELLIS, RONALD R, WINNER: “When we claimed this horse, I told Jim (Harrison, part owner) that if we give the horse some time, he’d come back 100 percent. I give Jim the credit, because he went along with what I suggested and the horse is doing very well. It looked like there was a lot of speed in the race and Drayden was confident he’d run well.”
