Winning trainer Nick Zito said, "He's an amazing horse. That's how he ran in the race before he won the Whitney. I don't think the track was that fast today. I don't know what kind of Beyer (Speed Figure) he's going to get, but it's going to be in the moon. The best thing we need to do is hope he stays around until the end of the year. Mr. Farmer (owner) expressed that he'd like to win the Whitney again. That was a big thrill for him. One thing is for certain, we're never going to run out of races with him. He's a real treasure."

Jockey Corey Nakatani added, "Special horse, huh? He broke like a rocket. When you ride horses like this it makes your job easy. He did it very easy and I'm looking forward to another stint with him."
