Winning jockey Mario Pino said, "He got to loafing when he made the lead, and I started to worry. As soon as he felt First Defence next to him, he switched leads and his class came out. That horse made a quick run at him, and it took him a little bit to get going turning for home, but once he leveled off, he went to the wire with his ears up. It's 95 degrees and he didn't even take a deep breath. He wasn't laboring, he was just looking for competition."
