Ellis Proud of Dirt Mile Runner-Up Rail Trip

Trainer Ron Ellis
“I was pretty proud of all three" (Rail Trip, 2nd Dirt Mile; Include Me Out, 3rd Ladies' Classic; Teddy's Promise, 8th F&M Sprint), said trainer Ron Ellis Sunday from Betfair Hollywood Park, where he awaited the trio to be shipped from Santa Anita.
“It wasn't Rail Trip's game getting behind all that dirt, but he battled his way through it and ran a really good race,” said Ellis of the Jay Em Ess Stable 7yo gelding.

“Include Me Out ran her guts out and was not quite good enough,” said Ellis of the 4yo filly, also owned by Jay Em Ess. “I was proud of the way she ran against a great field and only got beat by two champions (Royal Delta and My Miss Aurelia.)”
Ellis said the number one post compromised the chances of Teddy's Promise in the 7f race. “The rail took away her options,” he said.

“Include Me Out will get a little vacation,” Ellis said. “She will get a couple of months off, but I know that Samantha (owner Samantha Siegel) wants to race her again next year.
“Rail Trip and Teddy's Promise will also stay in training,” he concluded.
