Trainer Bob Baffert, who trained the first two finishers, said, "He sort of needs the competition. It looked like Richard's Kid would get him, but he dug in. That was a tough Gold Cup. Those are Grade 1 horses. We had to run one-two. They're two really good horses. That longshot (Spud Spivens) made them go pretty brisk. Game On Dude was getting a little tired, but he needs the competition. We'll take him to Del Mar to see if he likes the track. Last year, he really didn't train well there. If he trains well, I'll run him in the Pacific Classic. If he doesn't, I'll just freshen him up and wait for the fall. He loves Santa Anita and the Breeders' Cup (Classic) has been our goal."
