Jockey Garrett Gomez said, "I had her in my
sights the whole way. I had dead aim on her. Actually, after we went
3/8 mile, I started putting pressure on her and we
started quickening. But when you only have so much horse, you can only
go so quick. When we turned for home, the leader took off on my. I think
maybe a little farther my filly will do better. "
Trainer Todd Pletcher added, "The winner got away with a pretty slow quarter and
half, and we just couldn't run her down. I thought that was the way the
race would kind of unfold. We might have let her get away with a little
too soft fraction early."
