Dream Ride For Cass, Craig

Published: June 13, 2014 09:00 am EDT

"There's a lot of good horses in there and when the wings fold, they're gone, anything can happen. It's a tough race and it's nice to be a part of it, for me especially. I've been in this business a long time and never had a horse like this."

Veteran horseman Bill Cass discussed his 2014 Pepsi North America Cup starter Luck Be Withyou with Trot Insider at the Tuesday, June 10 post draw at Mohawk Racetrack.

The Breeders Crown champion, who was the Spring Book second choice for Saturday's $1 million Pepsi North America Cup at Mohawk, finished third behind Hes Watching and 1:48.4 winner Tellitlikeitis in last weekend's elimination round. With Ron Pierce driving, the Western Ideal-Trim Hanover colt will leave from post eight for his local trainer and longtime partner John Craig.

Bill, If there is anybody more deserving of this opportunity I certainly don't know who. As a team you and John have consistently made the commitment to the Ontario racing scene. You have a serious "shot" on Saturday and I wish you both the very best. You both deserve it.
