On whether sprinting on the turf has becoming her forte

“I think so. She’s really progressed rapidly. I thought we might be biting off a little more than we could chew today but (co-owner) Mr. (Ike) Thrash wanted to go here so here’s where we landed, and I’m glad we did.”

Roy Jackson (winning owner of Ageless)

“It's been a while since we had a winner here. It’s always great to win a race here because it is so competitive. We're thrilled. We know (Ageless) has a good kick and she just doesn’t want to go out in front. She wants to kick on from the back.  It was a nice ride from Julien (Leparoux).
