LEXINGTON, KY (April 15, 2017)

Channing Hill (winning rider of Senior Investment)

“He timed it right. Once I got him tipped out where he could really stretch his legs out, he came home nice. At the eighth pole, I wasn’t 100 percent sure I was going to get there, but he was really running on. This is a really nice colt – really special. When I won on him at Oaklawn, he showed a lot, showed a turn of foot, too. Today, he was the best one.”

Kenny McPeek (winning trainer)

“I was pretty confident. I’ve been trying to find a mile and an eighth race, and I had the option of taking him out of town. But I really felt like OK, we’re here. He trained really good here this week. So do we work him or do we run him? So, let’s say we run him.

“I really felt like a mile and an eighth would have been great for him. I think Churchill ought to add more (Kentucky Derby qualifying) points to this race immediately, but that’s the way the ball bounced. (Running in the) Preakness (G1)? Maybe, we’ll see. We have a really good horse and we’re going to have some fun.”

Flavien Prat (rider of runner-up West Coast)

“It was a good race and I had a good trip. He made a nice move on the (final) turn and it was too bad we got caught at the end.”

Joel Rosario (rider of third-place finisher No Dozing)

“He ran a tremendous race after (being bumped around the first turn). He put everything back together. He was running really well in the end and it looked like for a second he was the winner.”

Edgar Prado (rider of fourth-place finisher Time to Travel)

“He broke OK so he got a nice spot around the turn. He settled and all the way around was laying third. When they came to us, he gave me a run and kept trying hard. He just got a little tired at the end. He ran really hard and gave his best.”
