MIKE SMITH, VAMO A GALUPIAR, WINNER: “The ground has actually been on the hard side the past few days, so the rain actually did us some good. The track had a give to it, which is really good for my filly because she handles the off track. I think if you look at her past performances she’s won every time the track has been soft, and that’s what it was today. It was a bit soft, but very safe. This horse was a victim of circumstances last time. She comes from out of it, so sometimes you get trapped when that happens, and that’s exactly what happened last time.
