Winning jockey Jono Jones, celebrating his first Plate victory, said, "Roger did a fantastic job with this horse. At the beginning (of the racing season), I had my doubts if he could get 7/8, to be honest. When he ran the 1 1/8 miles (Plate Trial), he won, but he got a little tired in the end. I still had my doubts about 1 1/4 miles. But he ran his eyeballs out today. Actually, because I get on him so much (for morning workouts and races), I know him so well. I knew exactly what he needed to win and he got it. He broke good and got right behind a couple of speed horses. I moved a little bit sooner than I wanted because Deputiformer pushed me out when he wanted to move."
