Winning jockey Robby Albarado said, "This horse has improved with every start. Kiaran told me that I might want to give him the first jump as he's a little racy, but with the amount of speed in the race it was pretty easy getting him back. I saw a little traffic trouble in the first turn, but I was on the outside of it so I got a clear trip the whole way. I squeezed on him turning for home, and he went right on. He kind of opened up turning for home and he held them off at the end."

Winning trainer Kiaran McLaughlin added, "This horse is just a different horse this year. It's just amazing what a different horse he is from last year, from 3 to 4 years old. He's just a new and improved horse and he's really just done everything right this year. He's training unbelievable in the morning and has been running great in the afternoon. It just worked out fabulous. Robby did a great job of settling him early, because he can be a bit keen. Robby did a great job. He rode him just like I hoped the race would unfold into the first turn and down the backside."

McLaughlin may start Flashy Bull in the Whitney Handicap at Saratoga if stablemate and 2006 Horse of the Year Invasor does not enter.
