Jockey Garrett Gomez who rode beaten favorite and third place finisher Successful Outlook said, "She was a little headstrong going into the turn. I got her slowed down, then up the backstretch she was running real comfortable. At the 3/8 pole, it was just a matter of how far (she would win). When I turned for home, she just didn't go anywhere. She slowly dissipated on me and then I ran out of gas."

Toby Sheet, assistant to trainer Scott Blasi said, "That's not where I wanted her to be. Those weren't the instructions. I'm not very pleased with that."
