Winning jockey John Velazquez said, "It seemed like we were going slower and he was having a little bit of a hard time with the ground. When we got to the top of the stretch, I said, 'Let's get him out where he could probably get a little bit comfortable, not between horses.' Once he got there, he was more comfortable. I was running forward already, so I wasn't really worried (when Treasure Beach drifted out). I was worried about somebody else getting through (on the inside). When I asked him to go, he went."
