Winning jockey Javier Castellano said, "I did not expect to go to the lead like that, but my horse broke sharp, he wanted to go in the first turn. I didn't want to fight him. I wanted to see him comfortable. I wanted all the people to recognize he's a special horse. He's the best three-year-old in the country right now." When asked about what happened behind the starting gate when he had to dismount, Castellano said, "In the post parade, he was feeling good with the crowd and the people, but as we galloped out he took a bad step. I lost my balance and fell to the side. I wasn't worried about it because he's a special horse and nothing bothers him."
