Jockey Rafael Bejarano said, "There were only four horses in the races. I was worried about (Take D'Tour). This horse likes to stay a little further behind the pace. I was happy when (Teammate) went up there, too. I tried to put her outside to track the speed. From the half-mile on, I had a lot of horse. She finished up fast."

Trainer Bobby Frankel added, "She's a nice filly. We'll see about the Breeders' Cup; she's not nominated. I don't why. It's not my job. Maybe we'll run her back in the Beldame. Look at her record. She could come back in three weeks. The Beldame is 22 days from today, and $600,000 for the Beldame is nothing to sneeze at. If you run her three to four weeks apart, she does great. I told (Rafael Bejarano) they were going to take hold of Teammate. She's the kind of filly that does everything right."
