Winning jockey Alan Garcia said, "My filly broke okay and I saw (Be Fair) go to the lead. I said, 'let me be behind and see what I have left.' I thought maybe I could make a surprise on the outside and intimidate (Seventh Street). Maybe my filly did intimidate her a little bit and (Swift Temper) took advantage and won the race."
