Winning trainer Todd Pletcher said, "You are always anxious when you are a big favorite and you are supposed to win. He was very relaxed, and I knew Johnny had horse. He just needed a spot to go. Fortunately, things opened up for him enough on the rail. I thought that once he got clear, he is just such a good horse that I knew he had the ability to quicken. I never doubted this horse's ability. He's been a terrific horse for us. He's a head shy of winning three Turf Classics. This turned out to be a perfect prep. He relaxed really well and only ran for 1/8 mile."
