Cherie DeVaux, assistant to Chad Brown, trainer of winner Ball Dancing (No. 10) and Xcellence (No. 1): "I thought [Ball Dancing] ran great. She settled nicely and made one run. When Joe [Bravo] asked her to run, she quickened. She handled everything perfectly in the race and in the gate."
"[Xcellence] also ran great; Ball Dancing was just a little bit better today."
Joe Bravo, winning jockey aboard Ball Dancing (No. 10): "Chad [Brown] had a lot of confidence in this filly. She'd been training great and he got to know her. How impressive was it at the eighth pole when she got passed? How much heart did she show to come back and win it? With European horses making their first start here, it's mostly a matter of making sure they're comfortable with their surroundings. Chad does some much homework with these horses, it made my job easy."
