Winning jockey Garrett Gomez said, "We were out on it (the turf) a little while ago and it (the turf) was on the soft to yielding side. But this horse, coming from over in Europe, he'd been on something like this, so I knew it wouldn't bother him too much. It was just a matter of time, get a good trip with him and get him traveling well."
