Jockey Garrett Gomez said, "He ran his eyeballs out. He really tried. He gave 130% today. From post 11, I thought they were going to move along pretty good and then back up. They left away from there and I got situated when they backed the pace up. I was able to save a lot of ground and the rail was wide open. I just snuck up the fence and made up 5 lengths before the first turn. He ran really good."

Trainer Ron McAnally added, "We were worried about the slow pace, but Garrett (Gomez) rode him perfectly. He is not nominated to the Triple Crown, so he will go back to California."
