Trainer Allen Jerkens said, "He ran a great race. Now, he's starting to come into himself. I thought they would go a little faster for the first quarter, but they really started to hum in the second quarter. The only bad race (Corinthian) has ever run was last time when he got stuck in the gate. (The public) got down on him really quick, but Jimmy said he had been working really good. If we couldn't win, I'm glad Jimmy did."

Jockey Cornelio Velasquez added, "My horse? He run big. Corinthian is a good horse. Prado (aboard Lawyer Ron) hit him in the face by accident, but we beat him anyway."
