Rudy Rodriguez, winning trainer of Good Luck Gus (No. 1): "He was coming into the race very good. He's been training very good. We've been pointing him to this race all along. He won at Saratoga a year ago, I had entered him for [main track only] on the grass to see if we could get a race before this one because it's a long race, but he's been working super over here. I'm glad to see him win here, that's for sure."

Luis Saez, winning jockey aboard Good Luck Gus (No. 1): "The plan was we were going to be behind the speed, and when we made the move, hopefully we would have the horse. When we came to the stretch, I tried to look for the room, but everyone was moving in and out. When I had a little opportunity, we grabbed it, and he kept going. I rode the horse once [before] and he had a problem with dirt in the face, but today he was fine. He was professional."

On his third straight winner: "That was big. Three winners here, that's big. We're glad to be here and winning races here."
