Trainer Mike Maker (Brother Bird):  On breaking from the far outside post 13 - “You just can’t worry too much about things you can’t control. It’s either run or scratch. I thought the jock (Joel Rosario) did a great job getting around the first turn. That wasn’t an ideal spot for him last time when he ran at Keeneland (7th), but this race came up at the right place and right time. I can’t say what we might do with him next. We’ll just enjoy this one today.”   

Jockey Joel Rosario (Brother Bird): "I had a great trip, I was a little worried in the beginning because of the 11 hole, but in the end I knew we were the best."

Jockey Joe Rocco Jr. (Jazzit): "He broke well and I let him run away from there. He got pushed some but relaxed and kicked on turning for home. I thought if he could give me a little more we're going to get there, but he got a little tired towards the end."
