Driver Brian Sears, winning his third Canadian Pacing Derby in a row, said, "It just played out right in my hand, the way the race unfolded. My horse put out a great effort and it just worked out perfect. I just didn’t want to get in too big of a hurry back there and rush him at any time. I know he likes to close and he could probably pick them up, the way they were battling. It just worked out perfect."
