Jockey Garrett Gomez said, "I was kind of in-between with him because if he makes the lead too easy, his ears go 'Boink!' and he pulls himself up. I tried to time it just right. When I got to the leader, I still had a lot of horse. The other horse just kept kicking and my horse flattened out at the 1/8 pole."

Trainer Bob Baffert added, "He ran second. The horse that won, he's a really good horse. We're still learning about this horse. He wanted to go and Garrett was waiting and waiting. We learned today to let him do his thing. We'll freshen him up and get him ready for something. All I know is that he got beat and there is nothing we can do about it."
