Winning trainer Todd Pletcher said "It was a dominant performance. You don't see horses in turf races dominate as often as she has. She is one of those special fillies that can do a little bit of everything. She won the American Oaks at a mile and a quarter. She won here at a mile and an eighth. She's actually competitive on dirt, but this is her true calling: on the turf." Jockey Garrett Gomez added, "This is a beautiful filly. I can put her anywhere I want. I could have taken the lead any time I wanted to, but I got her to the outside and sat in the garden spot and just waited. When I asked her, she just exploded for me. It is always a pleasure to ride horses like these."
