Winning trainer Dale Capuano said, "I prefer him a little bit off the pace so he's got something to run at. When he's in front, he kind of fools around. He looks around, switches leads back and forth, doesn't really concentrate. It worked out well. Hopefully we'll be back for the Nearctic (October 4). We had good luck in that race last year and then maybe the Breeders' Cup (Turf Sprint)."

Jockey Javier Castellano added, "I've been riding the horse a long time. I always feel comfortable with him. Today he was pretty sharp. He wanted to run and I let him go."
