Jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. said, "She was going fast, but she was so relaxed. I kept my hands down, and she was moving so easily. She was just galloping. Her ears were up and she was playing with her ears. She was amazing. I never rode one like that."
McLaughlin added, "She's a special filly. I'm glad we have her on dirt here in North America and that we tried her on it. She could have won today going 1 1/2."
