Winning trainer Jean-Louis Arsenault said, "It is a dream. I never thought it could happen. It's unbelievable. He's been doing everything perfect. He's done it all. A world record, 1:49 3/5 for two-year-olds in a million dollar pace. Can't ask for anything better."

Driver Paul MacDonell, winning his third Metro Pace, added, "I didn't believe (the fractions). The half really shocked me, 54 and a piece. He was just on air doing it, with relative ease. He was so full of himself even going to the 3/4 in 1:21 and a piece. He just had tons. I didn't think he was that much better (than the others, going into tonight). I really didn't. I knew he was a really, really nice colt. I trained him here for Brent (MacGrath) one day and he did what a lot of aged horses probably can't do."
