Jockey Calvin Borel said, "She's the best horse in the country right now bar none. I love the colt. The colt run a super race with me in the Derby and, you know, my filly, she kind of struggled the last quarter of a mile. When she went to reaching like I know she can, the ground was breaking out under her a little bit. When she left the gate, she kind of took a little bad step. Usually I just let the reins back on in and she just cruises. I had to reach and pick up about the 1/4 pole just to support her a little bit, but I think we could have went another round with her. She got so much determination. When you look in the filly's eyes, it's unbelievable. You win."
