Winning jockey Garrett Gomez said, "He is a speed-tactical horse. He doesn't need the lead. He was sharp and allowed me to do what I needed to do. He has grown so much between his last race and this one. He keeps getting stronger. I was happy with the way he ran today."

Owner Ahmed Zahat added, "We have always thought so highly of him, especially when he broke the track record at Saratoga last year. He is a phenomenal sprinter and showed it here. He's getting better and maturing each time. Steve (Asmussen, trainer) has done a phenomenal job and (original trainer) Bob Baffert did a great job giving this horse his foundation. If he continues to stay healthy, he'll be back at Saratoga for the King's Bishop."
