Jockey Victor Lebron said, "We had a little bit of a rough trip at the beginning. We kind of got a little squeezed in around the turn. After that I kind of had to manage my way and steer him along and he came running at the end. The distance wasn't an issue. He came running at the end and was giving me all he had and every step he took was a gaining step. If we had a different trip at the beginning, he would've at least gotten second. He gave everything, no excuses about the race."
