Winning trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said, "He's a very special horse. The way he ran at Monmouth last time was just a 'Wow!' to me. The way he ran today was most impressive. This is so important for the horse's future because it's a Grade 1. He loves this track. He was going fast, I was a little worried about the half, but he was just sitting there and he can do it easily. Sheikh Rashid bin Mohammed (owner) flew in from Dubai and it's great to have him here on such an important weekend of racing." Winning jockey John Velazquez added, "He broke running. All I tried to do was hold him together. He did it all by himself. It was just cruising speed the whole way. Everybody got tired chasing him. He's a tremendous horse."
