Christophe Clement, winning trainer of Annecdote (No. 6): "It really was no surprise because she had been training so well in the morning. She always showed a great turn of foot. She had been training with a friend of mine in England. It's easy when people find you with that kind of horse."
Irad Ortiz, Jr., winning jockey aboard Annecdote (No. 6):"The track is very soft right now, so I just dropped the hands and tried to cover up. When I asked her, I had a lot of horse. I didn't want to be too close today because I saw there was a lot of speed in the race, and [Clement] had [Love Train], who has speed, too. That was my plan: try to make one run in the last couple of furlongs."
