Ttrainer Steve Asmussen said, "I really liked the finish, that was my favorite part. He was away well, shuffled away a little bit down the backside. I could tell that Robby was very confident on him. He put himself in a perfect position. He looked fabulous through the stretch. I can't say how proud I am to be part of what's just happened."
