Jockey John Velazquez said, "I had a perfect trip. Because of the distance, his first try this long, they wanted me to wait until the 3/8 (pole) before I moved. When I did, he went. I wish I could have made that move earlier. I think it might have made a difference. He stayed today. There's no doubt about that. He ran an excellent race."

Trainer Aidan O'Brien added, "Henry ran well. After having a long, hard season, we're delighted with his run."
