Winning trainer Steve Asmussen said, "I felt very confident that she would be able to handle the surface today. The Haskell was our major goal, and we were happy with the way she ran today."

The running time of 1:47.21 was just 0.41 seconds off the track record set by Spend A Buck in the 1985 Iselin Handicap.
