Distaff (G2) Quotes

Linda Rice, winning trainer of La Verdad (No. 4): "I wasn't happy when I saw [Aireofdistinction] coming after her early, and they were going pretty fast. I was a little concerned that was going to make it a real test on her fitness, but her ability is the key. She's got a lot of talent and is able to overcome that. I can only hope that she comes back and races as well as she has the last year and a half for us. I had her in training for quite a long time without a vacation, and after the Fall Highweight I decided to turn her out for a couple months; she deserved it."

Jose Ortiz, winning jockey aboard La Verdad (No. 4): "She had a clean break, I went to the rail and the three horse [Aireofdistinction] came out to challenge her, but really wasn't a factor at the turn. I cruised by her at the three-eighths pole, at the quarter-pole I looked back for the two horse [Mamdooha]. I let her pick up at the three-sixteenths pole, and I only hit her couple of times and she went easy. I just let her do her thing. I have to give credit to Linda [Rice] and her staff because they work very hard every morning to get her ready and they really deserve this."
