Winning trainer Bob Hess said, "This is what we always thought we had, and it has finally all came together. She bruised her foot in January and we lost some time with her. She's going to be a neat filly the rest of the year and next year. She's very healthy. We'll sit down and talk about what's next - maybe something in New York or here."
Jockey Kent Desormeaux added, "Bob has been putting me on horses since 1990. It sure is good to win one for him. The first 100 yards out of the gate I got hazed. She was having trouble switching her leads and she fell back behind them. But she got it going and in the end it unfolded just like I'd hoped. It helps when you've got the horse to do it. It's like going for that hole and having the hole go faster than you. Today we were fast enough to get right on through."
