Winning jockey John Velazquez said, "It actually worked out great. The post position didn't really hurt him. I knew he was fast enough to overcome it. It was just perfect after they hit the first turn. He was comfortable. As soon as I got after him at the 1/4 pole, he switched leads. I was surprised that no one was closing, but I wasn't going to wait. My horse just exploded, he ran great."
