Winning jockey John Velazquez added, "I sat right behind the two speed horses and bided my time. I was hoping to get some room to get out of there. I just happened to get room along the inside, and she ran very well in it. The race was supposed to set up for me because of the speed. You hope those things come out the way you want. But today it just happened to work out good."

Trainer Todd Pletcher added, "We kind of targeted this race right after the Davona Dale. We felt she didn't come out of that race great and gave her some time."
