Avon Thorpe, assistant to winning trainer King Leatherbury said, "He ran awesome. He's been training good. He came back slowly and took his time. Then, he just did what he normally does, ran big. I have no idea what's next."

5-1 third choice Eternal Star raced in 7th down the backstretch under jockey Julian Pimentel, came out five wide into the stretch for his rally, gained the lead at the 70 yard pole but was beaten a head in the final strides. The Michael Trombetta trainee improved his record to 9 wins, 5 seconds, and 1 third in 20 starts, earning $497,420 for owners Harry and Tom Meyerhoff.
