Winning trainer H. Graham Motion added, "I thought he won, but I'm usually pretty negative about those photos. It's hard to believe but this horse is getting better. He's more settled and more relaxed. He really shouldn't have been able to close like that into those fractions. He is an unbelievable horse. I would never question Ramon (Dominguez, jockey) if he moved too late. Ramon rode him beautifully today, he has so much confidence in him."
Motion said he would go next in the United Nations at Monmouth and then the Sword Dancer at Saratoga.
