    MT. RAINIER HANDICAP

    3-YEAR-OLDS & UP

    18th RUNNING, JULY 21, 2013

    1-1/16 MILES IN STAKES RECORD 1:40.52

    JOCKEY AMADEO PEREZ, HERBIE D, WINNER: “I am just so happy right now. I wasn’t expecting to get the lead that easy, and I’m so happy that I did. I just want to thank everybody for letting me ride him today. He’s a very nice horse, and I just can’t wait for (The Longacres Mile).”

    JOCKEY DEBBIE HOONAN, STRYKER PHD, SECOND: “He was sharp today out of the gate but once he got in behind he settled well. He was ready to make his run but it was hard to close into the others with the pace the way it was. He fills his lungs with air and starts smoking like a locomotive. He changed back to the wrong lead in the stretch but he galloped out strong. He might've got a little tired today, but it was a longer race. I'm proud to be part of Margo's team. It's an awesome feeling to be part of a horse headed to the Mile.”

    JOCKEY DAVID FLORES, TRES BORRACHOS, FIFTH: “"He was just empty. The pace was slow but he just didn't have a good run today. No complaints about our trip, it was good."

    NOTES: Herbie D (12-9-1-1-$227,928)…Herbie D was 2012 British Columbia champion sprinter and is the third B.C.-bred to win the Mt. Rainier Handicap (Herbie D, 2013; Kid Katabatic, 1999; You’ve Got Action, 1998)…This is the first Emerald Downs stakes victory for Hastings Racecourse-based-trainer Robert Gilker…Herbie D owners: George Robbins, Cobble Hill, B.C. and Darcia Dohman, Cowichan Bay, B.C…This was the first Emerald Downs mount & stakes win for jockey Amadeo Perez. Perez was 2012 leading rider at Hastings Racecourse and ranks second to Aaron Gryder in the 2013 Hastings jockeys’ race…Next: $200,000 Longacres Mile (G3), Sunday, August 18. Nominations close Sunday, August 4, for The Mile and $65,000 Emerald Distaff.
