Kelly Breen, winning trainer of Stonetastic (No. 2): "She's fast. Paco [Lopez] came back and said she did it easy. I'm happy for all the connections; she ran great. Paco said he didn't whip her. I don't know what else to say, she went in 1:08 and four, and did it the right way. We're happy to be here."
"This is a week since my father passed away, and he's here with me. It means a lot. It's been a tough couple of weeks."
Paco Lopez, winning jockey aboard Stonetastic (No. 2): "Very impressive. I know the filly has never run here, but I know that filly. I rode her last time at Monmouth. Kelly [Breen] said, 'Hey Paco, when they open the gates, come away, take your position, and look where you are.' Cutting back from a longer distance to a shorter distance, I thought someone might be coming a little bit [in the stretch]. But there was no competition for this filly."
Terri Burch, racing manager for winning owner Stoneway Farm: "I think we are [looking toward the Breeders' Cup] today. We shelved her for a little while in January and brought her home to grow up. This is her second race back for us. But, that's what we're looking for. That's why we were here today, to challenge everyone and see. So we're excited.
"She was running fine [before her layoff earlier this year] but she was very immature. We sent her home to grow up. She raced really hard for us in the fall, but she didn't grow. And then we put her back in training, she had a giant growth spurt, so we had to wait and go slow on her and wait for her to come around."
Phil Schoenthal, trainer of beaten favorite and runner-up Miss Behaviour (No. 6): "My filly ran great. There was no beating the winner. When entries came out [Stonetastic] was the one I was most afraid of. There's no shame in defeat, and it's fun to come up here and give it a shot."
Javier Castellano, jockey aboard beaten favorite and runner-up Miss Behaviour (No. 6): "I had a beautiful trip. That's where I wanted to be with the outside post; everything worked out perfect. Unfortunately, the winner, I don't know where she came from. I give her a lot of credit, the way she exploded at the top of the stretch. I think we were just second-best today. I think I beat the rest of the field pretty well. I'm not disappointed with my horse. She gave me a great effort. Unfortunately, it was not enough today."
