Jockey Julien Leparoux said, "He sat back like usual and then made his run. He ran very good. He closed really good. We took a piece of it, and it was good."

Trainer Nick Zito added, "Helsinki ran great and C P West just didn't get into the groove with Grasshopper. I guess the Jim Dandy took too much out of him. Like I said, Helsinki was a live horse. I told everybody he wasn't that bad. He ran good. It looked like (C P West) was going to get the lead easy and he needed to be on the front end. Once we weren't on the front end, we had no shot. Helsinki will stay running 1 1/4 miles, and with C P West, I'll check with Mr. (owner Robert) LaPenta and see what he wants to do."
