Black-Eyed Susan Stakes Quotes

Winning Trainer Jason Servis (Actress): “I always liked this filly. I told them she’s a good filly from Day 1. I’ve got to hand it to the Wests. They were on board the whole time and a lot of owners wouldn’t be. But they’ve been great. They’re good for the business. They deserve it. They love the game. It’s not just the money; they’ve got a passion for it. It’s all good stuff.
