Jockey Rafael Bejarano rode 5-to-2 chance Street Magician, a 3-year-old son of Street Cry that was making his third career start after finishing third in his debut and breaking his maiden earlier in the Gulfstream meet. Trilogy Stable's Yesbyjimminy rallied well for second in the field of nine 3-year-olds, a neck before Don McNeil and Everett Dodson's Out Sacred Honor in third.
Winning rider Rafael Bejarano said, "My horse has a lot of speed and the seven horse (Blue Bullet) does too. We broke good and I wanted to see where we were at, see if the seven went on. We sat there comfortably, and let the seven go on. When the running started, he pulled away and finished good."
Trainer Michael Trombetta added, "I was privileged last year to be a part of the (Kentucky) Derby and Preakness with Sweetnorthernsaint, and we all got to see what Bernardini did with a similar background (lightly-raced) to this colt. This one is a little late to come around, but we're going to take it one step at a time, see how her comes out of it, head to the Withers (Aqueduct on Apr. 28), and go from there. He was slow to mature, but he's really changed a lot this winter."
