Winning breeder and co-owner Dolphus Morrison said about why Rachel Alexandra did not run in the Derby, "No sir, the Triple Crown races are to showcase the future stallions of our industry and fillies should run with fillies and stallions with stallions."

Trainer Hal Wiggins added, "The owner still owns the dam, so that's very important. And I've trained for the man for 30 years. It's a good feeling to me for him to be able to experience this. We're not going to look back (on the decision not go to in the Derby), we're not going to have any regrets."
