Trainer Tom Albertrani said, "He looks fantastic. He looks great. He's got a good, healthy coat on him and has been training well. We're pleased with the way he's coming into this race. I would have preferred being a little farther on the outside, but he's got enough speed to get away from there. I could see where he's maybe two or three lengths off the leaders and Javier will just put him in a position where he is happy and comfortable."
