Rajiv Maragh (jockey, Groupie Doll, 1st) – “You’re the big favorite and expected to win, but you still have to get there.  It’s never easy until you pass the wire.  There were several scenarios that could have unfolded.  One that I didn’t want to see was Dust and Diamonds on an easy lead.  When I saw that she wasn’t, it let us sit back and be more patient.  She’s done that all year and now done that on the biggest stage.  She is so consistent.  She’s obviously going to be champion.”
Buff Bradley (trainer, Groupie Doll, 1st) – “She broke really good.  I saw Rajiv riding her, but that was the plan.  I told him to keep her close and in a position where she could make her move.  It worked out wonderfully.  I don’t know what I would have done if she would have lost.  I don’t think I could have gotten out of here.  Everyone wanted to ‘single’ her, and to be honest, I was sweating that more than anything. This is unbelievable.”
Julien Leparoux (jockey, Dust and Diamonds, 2nd) – “She ran beautifully. We had a good trip and at the quarter pole she just took me. I thought I was on the winner. But the winner came by me and she was best today. She’s a good filly. But my filly is very good also.”
Steve Asmussen (trainer, Dust and Diamonds, 2nd) – “She ran her race and gave everything she had.  Julien gave her a great ride.  I am very proud of here.  She got beat by Groupie Doll, a good horse, and our mare has had a great year.”
Garrett Gomez (jockey, Switch, 3rd) – “This is a really nice filly.  She ran a big race.  She always comes with a big run at the end, and that’s what she did today.  The other two just had too much space on us.”
Bill Kaplan (trainer, Musical Romance, 6th) – “She broke good and she was able to save some ground. She made a move on the inside, but she didn’t have it today.”
