Trainer Wesley Ward said, "I've always thought a lot of this horse. With a little more luck and a different trip last time (4th in Fountain of Youth) he might have been second. He's trained brilliantly since then and had a sensational work. Horses at this time of year can take such leaps, improve day-to-day, and I think this horse is has been doing that. We just have to hope he keeps moving in that direction. We'll take him to Keeneland."

Jockey Julien Leparoux added, "We had a good trip and he fought really hard down to the wire. He ran well last time too and he's getting better."
