Jockey Kent Desormeaux said, "The first four really quickened home from the quarter pole. It was just a slow pace. He was trying hard at the end and we just couldn't catch up. It was very encouraging the way he galloped out. He has a good turn of foot and I'm very pleased."

Drosselmeyer raced in fifth about 3 lengths off the pace early, put in a mild bid on the inside but could not sustain his rally, finishing fourth beaten 1 3/4 lengths.
