Winning trainer Bill Mott said, "It was a good pace and just enough cut in the ground where the closers had a chance today. It took her a race to get on track but it looked like a good effort on her part. I don't think she likes real soft ground but ground like this didn't seem to be a factor. Right now we'll probably look at the (Just a Game Stakes at Belmont Park)."

Jockey Kent Desormeaux added, "She had a good clean trip; she was always on the bridle, very aggressive, in fact. I think her frame helped her tremendously with winning the race. She has a light frame, so she was able to skip over the top, whereas the bigger, heavier horses had to sink a lot deeper. It is still soft, so she enjoyed the soft going. I don't think she wants to get there as quick as I did in the last race, and I may have gotten there too soon today."
