Byron Hughes, assistant to winning trainer Todd Pletcher, of Comfort (No. 1): "It was very close. [The ] track's been a little quick today. Johnny did a great job of saving ground, swung him wide, and the horse got up just in time. I knew our horse would come running; he's been very consistent. He's run well on every track he's run on, is 3-for-3 here too. The Jockey Club Gold Cup [Grade 1, October 8] would seem to be very high on the radar. We'll see how he comes back and go from there."

John Velazquez, winning jockey aboard Comfort (No. 1): "He broke good enough and I tried to keep it at close as I can. The dirt started hitting him and he started backing up, and I said 'this is no time to back up, you got to keep going forward.' I was fine when I got him to the outside. But he was giving me everything he could. I just got barely got it. I'm really proud of him."
