D. Wayne Lukas (trainer) – “I don’t think it makes too much of a difference. There’s a good run to the first turn and nine horses. It’s fine; a good post and he has good natural speed.”

POST 3 – DEFONDO (Brian Hernandez, Jr., 12-1) Dallas Stewart (trainer) – “It’s a good post. It’s a mile and an eighth race and there will be some speed and we’ll be able to lay back. We’re taking a shot and stepping way up in class, you just have to give these 3-year-olds opportunities to prove themselves and see where we’re at.”

POST 4 – FUSAICHI FLAME (Francisco Torres, 20-1) Scott Gelner (trainer) – “I think it’s a very good hole, in the middle of the gate. It’s an advantage because he can be on the lead or sit off from there.”

POST 5 – A DAY IN PARADISE (Kerwin Clark, 12-1) Larry Jones (trainer) – “I think it’s perfect. There are four to the inside and four to the outside. We’ll see what happens. We’ll find some way to get around there.”

POST 6 – WAR STORY (Joe Talamo, 4-1) Tom Amoss (trainer) – “There’s quite a bit of speed in the race. Being in the six-hole and having quite a bit of speed inside of us, I think we have a favorable draw.”

POST 7 – KEEN ICE (James Graham, 5-1) Dale Romans (trainer) – “It’s a decent post. It really doesn't make a difference; I would have just as well had the one-hole. Seven is a good post. He’s just going to drop out of it and make a run.”

POST 8 – ST. JOE BAY (Robby Albarado, 10-1) Peter Miller (trainer) – “Perfect.”

POST 9 – INTERNATIONAL STAR (Miguel Mena, 3-1) Mike Maker (trainer) – “We did better than last draw. We have a good enough horse; we’ll be fine.”
