Winning jockey Corey Nakatani said, "She broke really well. My main concern was getting her in a good spot so I had options to go outside, or inside, or to the lead. Actually, she put herself in just the right spot. It's great to be connected with Steve and (assistant) Scott (Blasi). They give you a lot of confidence when you ride.

Trainer Steve Asmussen added, "She's extremely special. How proud we are that she's a homebred (for Stonestreet Stables), and that George (Bolton) bought into her as a yearling. She's been everybody's pick at every stage, and she came through today with a great race."
