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."
