Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin (Dickinson): “[Her last race] was a funny effort. Johnny Velazquez is not only a great Hall of Fame rider, he’s a friend; he just came back and said I couldn’t get her to go around the turn. Thinking back she hadn’t gone two turns before, so maybe that helped us today to end up in the winner’s circle with this being the second time around two turns. But she is a super nice filly, with a super pedigree. A graded stakes win is very important for her. We’ll stay [on the turf]. Maybe she will reward us this year.”

Jockey Paco Lopez (Dickinson): “They just told me to try the best you can. You’ll figure out when the gates open. My race was perfect. I was in perfect position and I wanted to wait because I saw [jockey Javier] Castellano moved a little early [on Sandiva]. When I asked her to run, the rail opened and my filly went flying through there. I got lucky this time. Sometimes you have horse and nowhere to go but this time we got lucky.”
