Trainer Todd Pletcher (In Tune): “It's rare that you have one come along this quickly, a short maiden to a long 'a other than' to a graded stakes. She stepped up in class and distance each time and passed every test, so I'm very proud of her.

She showed a lot of courage down the lane. We anticipated that there would be some other speed in there so we felt like with our post position (#6) that we could sit off of it if we needed to. It pretty much unfolded like we thought.”

“Any time one of The Chief's (trainer Allen Jerkens) comes to you, you've got to be nervous. He's the greatest. We're proud of our filly for digging in and getting it done. There's a very strong headwind coming down the lane, but the track is playing fairly."            

Jockey Javier Castellano (In Tune): “She’s an amazing filly. She was really fighting. When she saw that other filly coming, she took off gain. She’s undefeated. I give all the credit to the filly. She was stretching out (at 1 1/8 miles) today, and she was wonderful.”
