Mark Casse (winning trainer of Airoforce)

“I was a little nervous going into the first turn. Actually both of our horses (he also saddled third-place finisher Siding Spring) had pretty wide trips. Going in (the race) we thought (Airoforce) was a good horse, and I think he proved today he is.”

Mario Gutierrez (winning rider of Gomo)

“We tried to save ground in the first turn and all the way to the second turn. Down the stretch it was time to go. We didn’t mind to go a little bit wide. She responded really well; she’s been training good. She's been showing us she wants to go two turns and she proved it today.”
