Trainer Marty Wolfson (Devil's Cave): “The mile, I wasn’t sure of because of her pedigree, but when she broke like that, I wasn’t sure she was going to get caught. I thought the only horse that could catch her would be My Pal Chrisy, but she hung a little bit.           

“I’ve only had this filly about four months and she’s improved with every start. She had a bright future when I got her. I think she’s just getting better with every start. I don’t know if she can get two turns, but she sure can go one turn.           

(On favorite My Pal Chrisy’s third-place finish.) “I think the mile is just a little too far for her, and probably 123 (pounds), giving that kind of weight away.”           

Jockey Joel Rosario (Devil's Cave): “It was her first time going long. It looked like she was going easy, but a horse started pushing me at the 3/8-pole so I took a big hold on her. I was hoping she’d have another gear and she did. I got a little bit nervous at the top of the stretch, but she really was going very easy.”            

Jockey Javier Castellano (My Pal Chrisy): "No excuse. They went very fast up front and set it up perfectly for us. She made her run, but didn't get it."
