Chad Brown, winning trainer of Mr Maybe (No. 9): "We knew he was sitting on a really good race but how easily he won surprised me. He's a horse that has a lot of talent. We thought there was some room for improvement and he's taken to our program nicely. My staff has really enjoyed working with this horse - he's a big teddy bear - and he's only getting better."
"Brad Weisbord deserves a lot of credit here because he was adamant about buying this horse. It wasn't an easy deal to complete. It fell apart at one point and he went back and got the horse purchased for us. On this one, he had the most confidence on our team of anyone. Thanks to his efforts he's in our barn."
"We'll go down to Florida and freshen him up a little bit. After this performance today, we have big plans for him next year. I think a mile and a quarter to a mile and a half is his game, and I think this horse can get to the Grade 1 level."
Irad Ortiz Jr., winning jockey aboard Mr Maybe (No. 9): "They told me he's the kind of horse you don't push too much and just to save ground. So I broke out of there and tried to save ground the whole way. By the half-mile, I knew they were going a little slow so I had to move. I went a little wide but I had horse and when I asked him, he just took off."
