Tony Dutrow, winning trainer of Big World (No. 4): "I didn't give [Jose Ortiz] any instructions at all. I told him she's an easy ride and he would know what to do when the gates opened. I noticed the speed was looking at her and they were going soft, so he took advantage of it."

"I was very, very happy with the way she stretched out at Saratoga at seven-eighths of a mile against good company. Then, to come back today and stretch out to a mile, I have to be very happy with that."

Jose Ortiz, winning jockey aboard Big World (No. 4): "It was a little weird. On paper, it looked like there was a little more speed in there, but my filly broke very well and I noticed it was going easy in front, so I took advantage of it. We went 24 [seconds for the first quarter-mile] and 47 and that's pretty good. When I asked her to go, she responded very well. I want to thank all the connections for the opportunity. She's pretty good."
