Winning jockey David Cohen said, "The horse ran great. We had two options; take the lead if they gave it to us, or try to sit back and find the pocket. If the rail came available great, or if we had to come out, just try to save our run until the very end. Wins like that you're not even looking at the wire; you're just trying to stay focused and keep riding hard."
