Winning jockey John Velazquez said, "We just sat there and waited. The first two or three jumps out of the gate went pretty good. By the fourth jump, he was in the bridle and I didn't have to do much with him." Trainer Martin Wolfson said by phone from Florida, "He ran terrific and had trained so good going into it. I thought he needed the race (Smile Sprint) at Calder last time. After we bought him in the fall, we took a chip out of his ankle and I've got to believe it's really helped him. He's a tremendous animal with a beautiful confirmation. I really had only planned on running him two to three times this year, so we might train him into the (Breeders' Cup Sprint)."
