Winning trainer Tom Proctor said, "A four-horse race becomes a jock's race. I was hoping that Gomez (on Chips All In) would push (My Best Brother) a little bit. I was kind of scared because I didn't really see him do it and I thought we might be in a little bit of a spot there. But our horse runs good. If you ever trained horses you know it's hard to win (three) in a row. Our horse has been improving each race and doing well. If everything's good we'll look at the (Del Mar) Derby next. We'll see."
