“People say the Americans need to have drugs in their horses,” Masterson continued. “Well she had no drugs in her, no nasal strip, nothing anyone was worried about in the papers and she just performed magnificently. It's a great message to send back home.”
“There was a lot for her to overcome but she just did it. She's one of those professionals who just does it.”
