Ron Peltz, president of owner Equirace.com LLC (wearing black suit with fluorescent green tie) said, "Everybody told me I was crazy when I bought this horse privately for $150,000. But I always loved this horse. After his race at Calder, the opportunity arose for me to purchase him, and I took him. I was very confident that he would run a good race today."

Winning jockey Brice Blanc said, "(Trainer Mike Maker) was worried about (With a City) not liking the kickback, but I was able to put him on the rail where there wasn't much kick. He responded really well when I asked him. Even though I didn't know him, he seemed very confident in the paddock. He trains at Churchill, so he shouldn't have any trouble running there." Maker said that With a City would start next in the Arkansas Derby at Oaklawn.
