Winning trainer Anthony Dutrow said, "I felt strongly he was going to run a terrific race, but I didn't know if that was going to be good enough to win. We work so hard with these animals, and when you achieve a race like this, it's bigger than life. He ran the way we wanted him to run at Delaware last time, and my feeling was that he was not 100% for that race. When we came up here to Saratoga shortly after that race, he really went over the moon. He loved the racetrack. I told Johnny to ride him with confidence."

Asked about the Travers, he added, "Absolutely. If he comes out of this race great, count us in."
