Winning driver Mark MacDonald said, "I had to take a shot with her. In these races you rarely get a good shot, and with the mares being this tough, it was imperative that I moved her when I did. She's got a great late kick and coming off that last turn, I was still last and just hoping for a good check. I've always wanted to win a Breeders Crown before and to do so now, well, it's just an unbelievable feeling."
Trainer Casie Coleman, celebrating her first Crown win, added, "I've been in the Breeders Crown three times before and have never won it, and it seems like we always get the ten-hole. This is just an unbelievable feeling and she raced great tonight. The mare never gets an easy trip. She hasn't missed a check all year long but has never had an easy time of it. She's a very lazy mare who really doesn't like to train. She's had an abscessed tooth all year that we've been working on, and other than that, she's been okay."
