Mike Smith (jockey, Mizdirection, 1st) – “Before the race, Mike (trainer Puype) told me ‘I don’t care if you ride her around them. I don’t care if you ride her inside them. I don’t care if you ride her in front of them. I don’t care if you ride her from behind – just ride her the way you know you can.’  I was really glad he said that to me because it allowed me to ride her with confidence.  When we came across the dirt, I had a lot ground to make up but I was really confident I could.”
Mike Puype (trainer, Mizdirection, 1st) – “She was wide.  She lost ground. She ran like a true champion to lose that much ground and still beat a field as talented as this.”
Corey Nakatani (jockey, Unbridled’s Note, 2nd) – “The race set up just the way we thought it would.  I was able to get first run on a lot of the horse, but I couldn’t catch the winner.  He ran a tremendous race.  He didn’t deserve to lose. All we can ask for them is to do their best – and that’s what he did.”
Steve Asmussen (trainer, Unbridled’s Note, 2nd and Great Mills, 4th) – “What a great day.  They’re all running.  They’re all running great.”
Garrett Gomez (jockey, Reneesgotzip, 3rd) – “She broke well, put me in a good spot, tracked well, crossed the dirt well. Peter (trainer Miller) jiggled the idea of trying her on the turf, and when I worked her a half-mile on the turf here a couple of weeks ago she lit up my face.”
Aidan O’Brien (trainer, Starspangledbanner, 10th) – “We’re delighted with him.  I said to Joseph, if he’s rocking, let him rock.  His best performances have been over five- and six-furlongs.  Maybe this 6 ˝ (furlongs) is just a bit too far.  We can have some fun with him next year.”
Mike McCarthy (assistant to trainer Todd Pletcher, Bridgetown, 14th) – “He wasn’t on his game today, I guess.”
