Winning trainer Bob Baffert said, "That was an exciting win. So impressive. When he broke his maiden, he ran a race like that, and he had been working really well, too, at Santa Anita. Bodemeister should be in great shape. He ran hard and fast. We know distance won’t be a problem. That was a 1 1/8 mile workout for him."
