Mike Stidham (winning trainer of Upperline)

On Upperline winning her final race

“She’s been a superstar from the beginning. She’s been tough in all of her races, and we’re just happy that she was able to do it like this.

 “We’re just sorry we hadn’t started running her a mile and a half a long time ago. James (Graham) rode her great, and she’s a great mare.”
