Jockey Javier Castellano said, "He broke a little slow out of the gate but he actually had a good trip. I saved ground the whole race and stayed behind the rate. But he ran pretty well. There was a lot of speed in the race so I didn't want to get into a speed duel and he still ran pretty good. I'm very satisfied with what he did. Down the stretch, he finished strong. I'm really happy with what he did at the top of the stretch."

Trainer Jimmy Jerkens added, "My horse was making forward motion and gaining on the leader, so that's always a good sign. He got a little discouraged getting bottled up down there on the rail, and getting hit with all that dirt. So he kind of spit the bit on him going around the far turn. Then when he got out in the clear he took off again, and I was really happy to see him come on again because it looked like turning for home he was in big trouble."
