    $200,000 LONGACRES MILE (G3)

    78th RUNNING, AUGUST 18, 2013

    ONE MILE IN 1:35.12 (:22.71, :45, 1:09.01, 1:21.71)

    JOCKEY AMADEO PEREZ, HERBIE D, WINNER (THROUGH VALET INTERPRETER): “I listened to the trainer’s instructions and he told me that the plan was to go to the front. I went to the front and never looked back. I could hear horses coming from the back, but all I was thinking was, ‘where is the wire?’ This is the best race I’ve ever won. I am very happy right now.”

    JOCKEY DEBBIE HOONAN, STRYKER PHD, SECOND: “He settled really nicely for me. He got right into his groove. I really didn’t have to do too much. He was really focused. He never would let (Golden Itiz) go by him. I could hear him grunting. He was trying so hard. When I ask him, he just goes. When we got into the clear, I thought I had a good shot at the win. I new the leader would be pretty tough to catch. I was thinking that third would be good, but it was even better when we got second.”

    JOCKEY GERRY OLGUIN, GOLDEN ITIZ, THIRD: “It was first time for him on dirt and just wasn’t handling it very well. I wanted him closer to the pace, but he just couldn’t handle the track. It took me until the final quarter-mile before he really got a hold of it, and then he really started moving. Considering everything, I thought he ran a really good race.”

    JOCKEY ISAIAS ENRIQUEZ, JEBRICA, FOURTH: “It was a very good trip. There was a lot of speed in the race, so I just angled him to the inside and tried to save ground. I had to use him a little earlier than I wanted to save my position because horses started attacking from my outside. I waited for the three-eighths pole to ask him, and he just started passing horses; zigging and zagging. I am very happy to be on this horse. I thought he ran great.”

    JOCKEY ANNE SANGUINETTI, WHY NOT BE PERFECT, SIXTH: “He ran a fantastic race. We knew this race would be tough, but we thought he deserved the chance. I started to move at the same time as two other horses, so I got pinched back to last. After that, he really started to move and was able to split the field in half.”

    JOCKEY RUSSELL BAZE, POLITICALLYCORRECT, NINTH: “My horse got hit from behind before we got into the first turn and he just dropped the bit. I tried to get him involved on the backside, but he just wasn’t having any of it. He didn’t give me anything. It’s great to be here for another Mile. It would have been a lot better if I had won it.”

    JOCKEY WINNING MACHINE, JAVIER MATIAS, 10TH: “I had the perfect trip. I went right into the first turn with no problems. He was in the race the whole way, but he just didn’t have anything left. I thought he’d run better, but the winner was pretty tough.”

    JOCKEY AARON GRYDER, MR. BOWLING, 11TH: “It was a little awkward, but I went a little bit wide going into the first turn, but that’s expected when you have a short run to the turn. Once I got to the backside, I was happy with where we were. I was following Gladding, who was laying third, and then he started to advance and I was like ‘good I got a live horse I can follow around third.’ And then when I got to the quarter-pole, and he wasn’t matching strides with him.”

    JOCKEY MARIO GUTIERREZ, HOIST, 12TH: “Before the break, he hit the gate really hard. I lost all my chances at the gate. I tried to put him up in the race, but he wasn’t really running.”

    NOTES: Herbie D (13-10-1-1-$337,928)…Herbie D is the second straight British Columbia-bred to win the Longacres Mile…Jockey Amadeo Perez has two stakes wins at Emerald Downs, both on Herbie D. He won the 2012 Hastings Racecourse riding title with 95 wins and ranks No. 1 in 2013 with 42 wins (through Saturday)…Hastings Racecourse-based trainer Robert Gilker has two stakes wins at Emerald Downs, both with Herbie D (Mt. Rainier Handicap, Longacres Mile)…Herbie D owners: George Robbins, Cobble Hill, B.C. and Darcia Dohman, Cowichan Bay, B.C…Washington-bred Stryker Phd (10-1-4-4-$99,466) finished second in all four older handicap stakes races this season at Emerald Downs—second at 40-to-1 in the Governors Hcp, second at 19-to-1 in the Budweiser Hcp, second at 4-to-1 in the Mt. Rainier Hcp, and second at 15-to-1 in the Longacres Mile. He is eligible to run in the $50,000 Muckleshoot Tribal Classic on Sunday, September 8…Northwest horses finished in three of the top four positions with BC-bred Herbie D first, and Washington-breds Stryker Phd and Jebrica second and fourth…Jockey Anne Sanguinetti on Why Not Be Perfect claimed foul against Stryker Phd and third-place finisher Golden Itiz, alleging interference into the stretch, but the stewards disallowed the claim…89-year-old trainer/owner/breeder Don Munger served as honorary steward for the 78th Longacres Mile.
