Trainer Todd Pletcher said, "We had a comfortable trip, set reasonable fractions, and just got run down at the wire. (Blame) ran a big race."

Jockey John Velazquez added, "I tried to put him into the bridle, but he was just going through the motions, which is strange for him. I was hoping there'd be nobody there, so I got to drifting. I was trying to make it more difficult for the horse on the outside."
