Winning trainer Charles Lopresti said, "I guess the soft turf didn't bother him! It's always a concern when he's never run on soft turf like that. I was a little concerned, but Johnny said he wasn't a bit worried. When I saw him down on the inside, backing up a little bit, I thought, 'Oh, boy.' But Johnny said he had so much horse he could have pulled the trigger any time. He's really confident in the horse. He's done a great job with him. It worked out great. I wasn't worried if it came off the turf, because he likes the mud. He's just a neat horse. He loves to run. I've been around a lot of nice horses, but he's just a really nice horse."
