Winning owner and trainer Tom McCarthy said, "I'll tell you that the excitement and the thrill is still there. I can't tell you how I feel. My heart is still pounding. I'll tell you what, that was a heck of ride by Rafael. He did just what we said, give him a breather, come on and that's exactly what he did. My whole family is here and that makes it so great. And these fans, these wonderful people who last year bet on him and he didn't do very well and got hurt. I hope this year that they double their bets and collected their money back."
