Trainer Steve Asmussen said, "I can't tell you how amazing it is that everybody everywhere asks me about Rachel. I think it's fantastic, and Rachel is very deserving of the admiration. To compare her three races from the Preakness to the Mother Goose to today, it's hard to determine her best effort. All of her races are very special for different reasons. She can handle the crowd, the weather, nothing surprises her."
