Winning jockey Mario Pino said, "Going in we knew it was going to be a match race because it was only a 2 horse race on paper. I got him to relax and I felt him crawling along early. At the 3/8 pole he dropped his head down, going faster and faster to the wire."

Winning trainer Larry Jones added, "He heard about this match race and was ready to get it on. This was a very good (Breeders' Cup) prep. He ran so well off of Polytrack last time, so this should set him up perfectly. I think our horse contained himself as long as could. He was ready to go. We knew that with the pace scenario, we wanted to make Street Sense chase us.”
