    2nd RUNNING, SEPTEMBER 2, 2012

    440 YARDS IN :21.96

    JOCKEY NEVER MARIN, A ROYAL DERVISH, WINNER: ““He’s a strong horse. I was very confident that he’d run well. He got bumped pretty hard at the start, but he just pinned his ears back and kept going. I knew it would be a close finish, but I was sure we had it won. I can’t wait for the final in Iowa.”

    TRAINER KURT DALTON, A ROYAL DERVISH, WINNER: “I don’t know how this horse does it, but he puts it together every time. It’s pretty special for a 7-year-old to keep competing at this level. I just want to thank Emerald Downs and everybody else for helping to put this race together.”

Hare, Director of Racing Challenge for the AQHA, served as honorary steward…J Mancuso ($3.40) won the $15,000 Pfizer Emerald Starter Allowance Challenge in a track record :17.76 for 350 yards.
