Winning trainer Elliston Rolle said, "This is the biggest race that Ive ever won. The jockey rode a great race. Hes (Universal Form) a pro at this distance, the (fast) pace helped us, and all those elements helped him. Hes gotten better with age. Manny Cruz fits him because hes a stubborn horse. He wants to be urged more than a finesse jockey gives you. He needs a couple of smacks out there. Were just going to enjoy this one for now."
