Jockey Ramon Dominguez said, "He dug in when the other horse came to him. He switched back to his left lead a few strides before the wire; I don't know if that cost him any momentum or not. But overall, I'm pleased with the way he ran. He was very game."

Trainer Derek Ryan added, "I don't want to see another photograph. There was nothing that we could do. It's a tough beat. We'll probably bring him to Churchill Downs, then to Belmont for the Met Mile before we give him a rest for the summer."
