Public Speaker Handles Slop in Carey

STICKNEY, IL With races taken off the turf due to heavy rain in the past three days, Dale Bennett-trained Public Speaker rose to the occasion to get the job done in the Grade III $100,000 Robert F. Carey Memorial.

Battling the pace while three wide, Public Speaker chased Antrim County through fractions of :24.68, :47.84, and 1:12.22. When asked in the stretch by rider Junior Alvarado, Public Speaker responded as he rallied to a 1 length victory, stopping the clock for the 1 mile and 70 yards in 1:42.16.

Junior Alvarado was pleased with the effort, I knew the horse going into the race and I had a really nice horse to start, but I was a little unsure about the surface. He tried really hard down the stretch and liked the battle with Antrim County.

Trainer Dale Bennett, Hes just a racehorse. It was an unknown with the sloppy track but Mr. Karahalios and I talked about it and just decided to give him the chance because you just dont know. You cant teach it. You cant train it. Hes just a runner.

Public Speaker paid $4.20, $2.60, and $2.10
Antrim County paid $3.00 and $2.20
Sebastian County paid $2.20
