Jockey Garrett Gomez said, "When it came time to really dig down and run, he started getting tired on me. He hadn't run since the Dubai World Cup. You put him in an allowance and he gallops. You're talking about Grade 1 horses here, and a Grade 1 race. You're asking an awful lot of him, but we knew if anyone was up to the task, it was going to be him. He was there for me except for when it came time to really bear down and run."

Trainer Saeed bin Suroor added, "He needed the race and should improve off of this race. He had been working well and was physically sound. We'll have to see how he comes out of this race and check him over. If everything is fine, I would be happy to send him to the Breeders' Cup (Dirt) Mile (on October 26). I think the mile would be better for him. Six furlongs is too short for him and his race."
