Chad Brown, winning trainer of Lewis Bay (No. 2): "Irad [Ortiz, Jr.] rode her really well. I was concerned on the backside, when they were stacked up outside her, that she would never get out. Irad explained to me afterward he just eased his way back and around everyone. He was forced to go wider than he wanted to, but she really finished good. The last sixteenth of a mile, she lost her competition [by] being in front and out in the center of the track. He said she really lost focus, but was just being green. He said she's better with a target, but she passed the two-turn test, at least."
Irad Ortiz, Jr., winning jockey aboard Lewis Bay (No. 2): "Turning for home I sent her out and she really went fast. When she got the lead she was a little green; I think she was waiting for company. She went out a few paths because she changed leads a little early but I felt I had a lot of horse, so I felt comfortable taking her wide. She was ready today and I don't think she showed everything she has because she was a little green, and when she felt somebody beside her she picked it up."
