Winning trainer Hal Wiggins said, "If you watched the race you saw it. It was just unbelievable. I was a little worried about Baffert's filly (Gabby's Golden Gal) on the lead like that, but Calvin said, 'I had everything under control.' When he asked her, she just naturally took off. And just finished tremendous. It looked like she came out of the race really, really good. That's the main thing. Her last four races have been like that. Of course, this is the most important, a Grade 1 win for a filly."
