Winning owner Donald Adams said, "This is a very proud moment. We've been in the business a long time and we haven't had major success. Days like this make up for the lean years. He's
a mid-May foal. He's not even 3 years old. He's very, very big and
he's just starting to grow into himself. He has that stride that just eats
up the ground. Edgar rode a beautiful race."
Jockey Edgar Prado added, "I was very impressed with his win on the turf one race before his last
(Jan. 11). I know if horses handle the turf well, they will handle the
Polytrack. I wanted to be in a tracking position and I was happy almost
every step of the way. He put me in a great position at the eighth pole and
every time I called on him, he responded."
