Nick Zito trainer of C P West said, "Luck is a big factor. If we drew outside and the other horse drew inside... He had to wait and make his move. I'm proud of him, he's a wonderful horse. The winner had more experience and had a good post. I've got to be happy with our horse's performance. It's been frustrating all year with all these seconds, I can't even count them all. I don't know what we'll do. If he comes back well, we might give him another race. If not, we might give him some time."
