FLAVIEN PRAT, WARD ‘N JERRY, WINNER: “I hadn’t been on him in a long time and Mike told me that he’s best at these long distances. He was little keen early, but he settled down fine and as you saw, he had a good turn of foot through the stretch.”
MIKE PUYPE, TRAINER, WARD ‘N JERRY: “If you look at his form, you can see that he’s done his best at long distances. He had won at a mile and a quarter and a mile and three eighths, and he ran a really good third going a mile and a half last December (beaten a neck in the Grade II Hollywood Turf Cup at Del Mar). They came home pretty fast today, they put a couple of 24 second quarters together there, so this was a big effort.”
NOTES: The winning owners are Mr. & Mrs. Larry D. Williams.
