KENT DESORMEAUX, EDDIE HASKELL, WINNER: “There were some anxious moments from the quarter pole to about the eighth pole where the leader, (What’sontheagenda) was going as fast as me and I had asked ‘Eddie’ to go. He sustained his kick and that made the difference. Eddie won the race. He flicks his ears up a lot when he knows he’s open; I put my feet up ‘alligator’ style because I’m not sure which way he’s going. He responds so well to my hand gestures and when I encourage him to go, he just explodes. He literally can fly.”
MARK GLATT, TRAINER OF EDDIE HASKELL, WINNER: “I was a little bit worried about the one hole and you could see Kent had his hands full there heading into the turn. When he got clear and he got him to running again, I thought he’d have the other horse (What’sontheagenda) measured.
NOTES: The winning owners are Philip Wood & Jim Hailey.
