Wilkes says he’s happy with the result – a 1 1/2-length victory over Windswept.
“He was a different horse today. He was very quiet in the paddock. I didn’t know what to think. Charlie (LoPresti)’s horse ran good. I think this race is going to help us a lot. You see he got a little tired at the end and we needed this race. I missed the last race in the Woodward and I needed this race today to get to where I want to be. I’m not taking anything away from any of the other horses here, but he wasn’t 100-percent today. I wanted this race to move forward off of.”
