Winning jockey Julien Leparoux said, "She's a champion. Every time I ask her to do something, she does it. When you ask her to go, she's got a very good kick. We knew the race wasn't going to have any speed, but we didn't want to change how to ride her. She was much the best anyway."
Trainer Jonathan Sheppard added, "She looked just like a champion should out there. She really has seemed to find a new lease on life (since switching to turf). She's got more confidence, more poise, and I think she knows she's special. She looks like it, and she acts like it. I feel very blessed to have such wonderful horses. It certainly makes my job a lot easier.
