Rudy Rodriguez, winning trainer of Dads Caps (No. 1): "Very nice day. I said to Jose, don't go crazy. It worked out perfect. To win this race back-to-back is amazing. This is a good horse to be around, and we've had him since he was a baby, so it's special. A day like this means a lot to all of us; you work hard, and it pays off. Hopefully, it can just keep coming."
Jose Ortiz, winning jockey aboard Dads Caps (No. 1): "I followed the instructions that Rudy [Rodriguez] gave me, he wanted to come from off the pace today, and it worked out great. The horse was great, I had to wait a little on the turn but I had a lot of horse so I just wanted to wait and follow the instructions rudy gave me. I want to thank Rudy and his staff they do a tremendous job and the owner Vincent Scuderi for always supporting me."
Tony Dutrow, trainer of beaten favorite The Big Beast (No. 3): I don't think we had a [rough] trip. We just have to wiat for another day and give it another try. I tink things went pretty well for the horse. We got trapped, but he [jockey] got him out and we got him running there."
