Juan Leyva (jockey, Musical Romance, 1st) – “This filly, I  just need to let her do whatever she wants to do in the beginning, and down the lane I need to get into her a little bit, but I always try to save enough with her for the end. She broke really alert like she always does.  She acted like she was running off at first but I got her to settle and when she did that, I knew I still had plenty of horse.  I saw Turbulent Decent and Pomeroys Pistol move and I thought they moved a little early, but I like to hold on to my horse as long as I can because she has a short run.”
 
Bill Kaplan (trainer, Musical Romance, 2nd) – “This filly’s done everything I’ve asked of her and more. She’s just awesome. She’s getting better and better and better. I don’t care if she runs 13 or 14 times a year, she gets better with every shot. I was confident she’d run good, but I didn’t know she would beat these horses. She has such speed and she can place herself wherever she wants to. And when Juan wants her to go, she just goes. This (winning a Breeders’ Cup race) is it – this is the pinnacle.”
 
Joel Rosario (jockey, Switch, 2nd) – “There were a lot of things going on early in that race. I waited with her because they were all together in a group and there was trouble. On the turn when I made my move, two horses in front of me started to back up. I had to pull her up. It probably cost me the race. She was really running when I had to grab her.”
 
John Velazquez (jockey, Her Smile, 3rd) – “She ran huge man. I got really excited at the quarter-pole. Going to the 3/8ths pole, I pulled my goggles down, she was moving so great. At the 3/16ths she kind of stopped running and when other horses came to her, she started running again. Right near the wire, there was a little puddle of water, and the sun was hitting it, so it was kind of bright, and she went to jump it, and I was like, oh my God. I just got beat for second. They harrowed the track. It's deeper. It's changing from race to race, and it's going to change all day. Some parts are really fast, and some parts are still a little wet. The trick is to find the right path.”
 
Mike Puype (trainer, Turbulent Descent, beaten favorite, 5th) – “She got slammed leaving the gate.  She got slammed leaving the backside. Then it made her eager and she pulled her way right up to the leader – moved too early and then she flattened out after all that.  She couldn’t sustain a good run. She just didn’t have a good trip at all. It’s her first bad race. (This is) the wrong day to have it, but it happens and we’ve just got to move on.”
 
David Flores (jockey, Turbulent Descent, 5th) – “She was aggressive; she really wanted to get in the bit. I tried to get her back because there was so much bumping going on. Trouble followed us all the way to the turn and she was trying to get out of it. She knew she had to get out of there, but there was too much trouble. She was OK, but she was tired at the end.”

John Sadler (trainer, Switch, 2nd) – “I thought she had a very unfortunate trip. She didn't break all that well. She was last, and had to come wide. I thought she was the best horse in the race.”
 
"We are going to scratch her from the (Fasig-Tipton ) sale (Hip No. 23 Monday). She'll get a brief vacation and we'll bring her back next year when (the 2012 Breeders' Cup) is in our own backyard (Santa Anita), so maybe we'll have better luck.”
