Trainer Patrick Byrne said, "We knew he liked the racetrack. We're not surprised. It's a great result with that pedigree and (winning) a Grade 1. I didn't feel there was any pressure on me going in. I was 7-1. Mike (Matz) was 1-5. It's nice to be 1-5 because it usually means you have the best horse on that day. But I wouldn't trade places with him. This was a solid race today."

Jockey Calvin Borel said, "He needed the last race, I don't care what anybody says. This horse, he has the potential; he has the breeding behind him. Pat's been to the big dance, so he wasn't coming to play. He'd been off for a while, and I didn't want to take anything from him. I think we got enough out of the race last time for today, and it set him up just right."
