Winning jockey Richard Migliore said, "She didn't pull excessively hard; she tried me once down the back(stretch) and I was firm with her and then she let go of the bridle again and traveled beautifully until I called on her. She's a filly that tends not to run the turns as well as the straights, so when I was able to maintain my position (around the turn) without really getting after her to do it, I said 'Well I know I can make up these 4 lengths when we turn in.' When she switched her right lead, she went and got them."
