Winning trainer Dale Romans said, "I thought he was the fastest horse in the race, period. I didn't know if he could go as far as he needed to, but we weren't going to take back. We weren't going to give Get Stormy an easy race. We decided to take it to him. He had condylar fracture last year, so this is a pretty sweet victory for Little Mike. He's a super horse and he deserves this Grade One."

Jockey Joe Bravo added, "I've been riding for 24 years and I can't say a horse will stick out more in my mind than Little Mike will. He's a horse that's overcome so much. I figured with the rain – the water runs down to the inside – that I thought it was better to stay off (the hedge). Who says there wasn't a question (about getting 1 1/8 miles)? I had a lot of questions, but Little Mike speaks."
