We’re going to prep them all now at Royal Ascot and bring them to Ky Downs, the way it is working out,” joked Ward. “I had a lot of confidence in her going to the Royal Ascot race. Mr. Ramsey has a yearning desire to win over there, and I was second the first year we went with Cannonball. Of all the ones I ever brought since, this is the one I thought would win. There are so many things that can go wrong before, even during the race. But there was a filly that lost a shoe in the paddock, so she was walking behind the gate with 27 other horses for about 20 minutes and she just sort of got hot and nervous and the gate opened and she got left at the gate and forget it. Fortunately for us today, she rebounded and won a big purse for Mr. Ramsey and we’re on to the Breeders’ Cup now (Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint).”
