On the Monday after the Derby, trainer Larry Jones said, "I'm sure the way this affects us mentally, we'll probably bounce too far to the conservative line for a little while, being probably too safe on our horses. We're having a hard time getting this in perspective and behind us. These horses are very dear to us. I never got to say goodbye to her."
